    Boeing will file a protest over the award of a large Air Force tanker contract to Northrop/EADS.

Truth is, in some districts getting a recount, the senator from Illinois is even close to defeating...

Because of the problem's spread, "many states have laws authorizing financial institutions to report suspicions of elderly abuse," says Bruce Jay Baker, general counsel for the Illinois Bankers Association. Earlier this summer, the Securities and Exchange Commission hosted a Seniors Summit to highlight the issue, with SEC Chairman...
