    CLEVELAND, Ohio – Nina Turner, the Democratic former state senator from Cleveland who has emerged as a rallying figure for Bernie Sanders' disappointed supporters, said she is considering an offer to run for vice president on the Green Party's national ticket. Massachusetts physician Jill Stein, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, reached out with the pitch, Turner told cleveland.com Sunday evening in a telephone interview. The Green Party opens its convention Thursday in Houston. Turner would stand for nomination there if she agrees to be Stein's running mate. Her decision is expected in the coming days.

    World powers will present Iran with an updated and "good" offer at talks this week on its nuclear program, an EU official said Monday, although hopes for a breakthrough appear slim, AFP reports. Talks aimed at curbing Tehran's nuclear drive start Tuesday in Kazakhstan, with the so-called P5+1 represented by the European Union sitting down with an Iranian team led by negotiator Saeed Jalili. "We have prepared a good and updated offer for the talks, which we believe is balanced and a fair basis for constructive talks," said the spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, according to AFP....

    NEW YORK--To spur sales, General Motors is offering a year's worth of car insurance along with any new GM car purchased in the states of Washington or Oregon. (Snip) The insurance -- part of a marketing test that will run through Sept. 6 -- includes both liability and physical damage coverage, GM said, and exceeds the minimum requirements in the two states. Oregon and Washington were chosen for the program because GM hasn't been gaining market share in those states as quickly as it would like, GM spokesman Tom Henderson said.

    MUMBAI: In 2008, when Atlanta-based Georgia Tech University bought 250 acres of land in Hyderabad it left many gaping. It did something even more astonishing shortly afterwards: it invited its own faculty members to quit their jobs and consider moving to India. A professor in the computer science department of the university told TOI: ‘‘Each one of us got a formal note. Even more amazingly, he added, all of us were offered the same salary that we were getting in Georgia. It was clearly an offer very few would even think of refusing; given the cost of living in India,...

    HaAretz ^ | 10/09/09 | Yossi Melman,
    The latest reports of senior nuclear scientists defecting from Iran to the West have caused considerable embarrassment and concern to the regime in Tehran. The reports first broke in Londown-based newspaper Al-Sharq al-Awsat, and were followed up in the Iranian media. The reports suggest that at least one scientist, Shahram Amiri, who worked on nuclear research and development, defected several months ago to the west during the hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia. One more person, whose identity and specialization remains unclear - he may have been a scientist or held another key position in Iran's nuclear program - may have...
