    BOSTON (BP) -- Some of the nation's top companies such as Google, CBS, Starbucks and Nike have joined forces in a legal brief asking a federal court to force the federal government to recognize gay "marriage." The friend-of-the-court brief asks the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a 2010 lower court ruling that struck down part of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

    NEW YORK - Levi Strauss pants were tough enough to outfit 19th-century gold rushers, but do they have what it takes to block radioactive waves that may or may not emanate from wireless phones? The question has already stirred debate.
