In uptown Manhattan, storm leaves a hanging crane and minor damage

The damaged crane, part of construction on the One57 building, on West 57th Street (Allison Joyce/Getty Images??

Monday's giant storm inflicted the greatest damage on the lower half of New York City, but uptown, on West 57th Street, a massive, dangling crane is drawing crowds.

At a thousand feet above the ground, the 80-ton swing arm dangles next to the tallest condominium under construction in the city, located between 6th and 7th avenues. Bovis Lend Lease, the company managing the building's construction, is waiting for the last winds to die down before it scoops up the hanging hulk of metal.

"All I'm doing today is watching that crane," said a company employee, who asked not to be named. Wearing a muddied yellow raincoat, he leaned against a nearby shop on the corner of 56th Street, on standby.

"The only reason they haven't taken it down is because of the winds," he said. "Once they die down, they'll rig it up from the air. Right now it's no danger."

His remarks echoed the statement of the tower's developer, Gary Barnett, who told Crain's New York Business, "Everything that can be done is being done." In the meantime, metal gates and police tape block off access to the surrounding areas, as crowds of people stand along 57th Street and 5th Avenue taking photos and chattering as the crane's arm sways in the wind.

The crane is the most conspicuous damage up here resulting from the storm, but nearby, more destruction can be seen: On a building at the corner of Park Avenue and 59th Street, the facade of one floor about 20 stories up tumbled down during the storm, leaving a mass of debris on the now closed-off section below.

But for most who live around here, the most common word to describe the storm has been "boring." There have been few power outages, and the worst symptoms of the storm have been the gusts of wind. In nearby pubs like the Carriage House on 59th Street, people are hanging out, glancing at the images on TV of? more serious disorientation in lower Manhattan.

"It's honestly been a little boring," said Alana, who lives a few blocks away by the U.N. headquarters. She said she's chiefly been preoccupied with taking in her friend from Brooklyn, where winds were felt as early as Sunday night. "No power out, I've still got Internet. It hasn't been very exciting."

Others living uptown have also concentrated chiefly on coming to the aid of their friends, and checking on their work spaces downtown.

"I'm at a small tech company in Union Square, so I swung by to check on any leaking or flooding," says Brian, playing darts with a friend at the Carriage House. "Otherwise, it's mainly been working from home and helping out the people I know."

Restaurant review: Hopdoddy Burger Bar | Advocate Magazine

IMG 1354 150x150 Restaurant review: Hopdoddy Burger Bar

Hopdoddy Burger Bar?s basic $6 burger and $4.75 large order of fries.

No, it?s not in the neighborhood, but it?s close enough for a 15-minute road trip if you?re looking to try a new place.

Hopdoddy Burger Bar is an Austin transplant, and the Preston Center location is the chain?s first in Dallas.

It?s organized a bit differently than any other place I?ve been in Dallas. First, you line up to order. While you?re in line (assuming there?s a line, which there was the night we visited), a hostess assigns a seat for you; no worrying about standing there with a tray of food and no place to sit.

The ordering process is pretty basic, although the menu is limited primarily to burgers. But no worries ? the burger is good enough that you?ll be thinking about it even after you?ve finished. Even though the meat was cooked ?medium? according to the order-taker, it wasn?t pink inside but it was incredibly juicy and tasty. The basic burger starts at $6, and like every premium burger place, you can add stuff on or select some of the pre-packaged options and spend more. The fries are suspiciously good, too: Even after sitting on the wrapping paper for 30 minutes, there was nary a drop of grease on the paper, if that tells you anything.

There?s a good-sized bar with surround-seating in the place, and an awful lot of locally brewed beers are served (two from Deep Ellum and two from Lakewood caught my eye). You?ll also find shakes and a large variety of natural, no-name soft drinks, as well as as the one standard brand just about everyone has to serve these days ? Diet Coke.

In short, you can get in and out of there with two burgers, an order of fries and two soft drinks for a bit more than $20, pretty standard for Dallas upper-end burger places. But if you like burgers, I think you?ll like this place. (Click on the photos for a larger, more savory view.)

Fed Beige Book-St. Louis: Econ Activity Expanded Moderately ...

WASHINGTON (MNI) ? The following is the latest Beige Book survey of
economic conditions in the Federal Reserve?s Eighth District, published

Eighth District ? St. Louis


Economic activity in the Eighth District has expanded at a moderate
pace since our previous survey. Recent reports of planned activity from
manufacturing and services contacts have been positive. Residential real
estate market conditions have continued to improve moderately, while
commercial and industrial real estate market conditions have continued
to be mixed. Overall lending activity at a sample of small and mid-sized
District banks increased slightly from mid-June to early September.
Agricultural conditions in the District have generally improved since
our previous report.

Manufacturing and Other Business Activity

Reports of plans for manufacturing activity have been positive
since our previous report. Several manufacturers reported plans to hire
new employees, open new plants, or expand operations, while fewer
manufacturers reported plans to lay off workers or close plants. Firms
in poultry processing, furniture, commercial printing, boat, conveyor
equipment, HVAC equipment, and industrial gas manufacturing plan to hire
new workers, open new facilities, or expand current operations. In
contrast, firms that manufacture iron and steel products, mining
equipment, and food products plan to lay off workers or close existing

Reports of planned activity in the District?s service sector have
been positive since our previous report. Firms in business support,
distribution, healthcare technology, and personal care reported plans to
hire new workers or expand operations. A transportation services firm
also announced large-scale hiring plans for seasonal employees recently.
In contrast, a financial services firm announced plans to relocate
workers to a new location outside the District. Lastly, auto dealers in
certain parts of the District reported weak hybrid vehicle sales.

Real Estate and Construction

Home sales increased throughout most of the Eighth District on a
year-over-year basis. Compared with the same period in 2011, August 2012
year-to-date home sales were up 15 percent in Louisville, 6 percent in
Little Rock, 11 percent in Memphis, and 17 percent in St. Louis.
Residential construction increased in the majority of the District.
August 2012 year-to-date single-family housing permits increased in the
majority of the District metro areas compared with the same period in
2011. Permits increased 41 percent in Louisville, 27 percent in Little
Rock, 39 percent in Memphis, and 17 percent in St. Louis.

Commercial and industrial real estate conditions were mixed
throughout most of the District. A contact reported that apartment
occupancy rates in northwest Arkansas remained high in Rogers,
Bentonville, Fayetteville, and Springdale and strong multi-family real
estate activity is expected in the second half of 2012. A contact in
Louisville reported that office leasing activity declined in the central
business district, while it remained strong in the suburban area. A
contact in Memphis reported that industrial real estate activity has
improved. Commercial and industrial construction activity improved
throughout most of the District. A contact in Little Rock reported
several new office building construction projects in the Fayetteville
metropolitan area. A contact in Louisville reported that with demand for
multi-family units remaining strong, plans for apartment construction
continued to increase. A contact reported new mixed-use development
plans in the Memphis metropolitan area.

Banking and Finance

Total loans outstanding at a sample of small and mid-sized District
banks increased 1.4 percent from mid-June to early September. Real
estate lending, which accounts for 73.3 percent of total loans,
increased 0.2 percent. Commercial and industrial loans, accounting for
15.8 percent of total loans, increased 1 percent. Loans to individuals,
accounting for 4.7 percent of total loans, increased 2.5 percent. All
other loans, accounting for 6.2 percent of total loans, increased 16.4
percent. During this period, total deposits at these banks increased 0.2

Agriculture and Natural Resources

The condition of pastureland in the Eighth District has improved
significantly from early August to late September. Excluding
Mississippi, where 97 percent of pastureland was already rated as fair
or better, the fraction of pastureland in fair or better condition has
increased by at least 20 percentage points in all District states. The
share of crops in fair or better condition has similarly increased
across the District, although the condition of the corn crop remains
relatively unchanged. Harvest completion rates have outpaced their
5-year averages for almost all crops in all District states. In
particular, harvest completion rates for corn and rice are on average 30
percentage points ahead of their 5-year averages. Total year-to-date
coal production in the states comprising the District, with the
exception of eastern Kentucky, was 9 percent higher through the end of
August than it was in the first eight months of 2011. August production,
however, was 6.8 percent lower than in August 2011.

Suomi NPP satellite sees auroras over North America

ScienceDaily (Oct. 10, 2012) ? Overnight on October 4-5, 2012, a mass of energetic particles from the atmosphere of the Sun were flung out into space, a phenomenon known as a coronal mass ejection. Three days later, the storm from the Sun stirred up the magnetic field around Earth and produced gorgeous displays of northern lights. NASA satellites track such storms from their origin to their crossing of interplanetary space to their arrival in the atmosphere of Earth.

Using the "day-night band" (DNB) of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite acquired this view of the aurora borealis early on the morning of October 8, 2012. The northern lights stretch across Canada's Quebec and Ontario provinces in the image, and are part of the auroral oval that expanded to middle latitudes because of a geomagnetic storm.

The DNB sensor detects dim light signals such as auroras, airglow, gas flares, city lights, and reflected moonlight. In the case of the image above, the sensor detected the visible light emissions as energetic particles rained down from Earth's magnetosphere and into the gases of the upper atmosphere. The images are similar to those collected by the Operational Linescan System flown on U.S. Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellites for the past three decades.

"When I first saw images like this as a graduate student, I was immediately struck by the fluid dynamic characteristics of the aurora," said Tom Moore, a space physicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. "Viewing the aurora in this way makes it immediately clear that space weather is an interaction of fluids from the Sun with those of Earth's upper atmosphere. The electrodynamics make for important differences between plasmas and ordinary fluids, but familiar behaviors (for example, waves and vortices) are still very apparent. It makes me wonder at the ability of apparently empty space to behave like a fluid."

Auroras typically occur when solar flares and coronal mass ejections -- or even an active solar wind stream -- disturb and distort the magnetosphere, the cocoon of space protected by Earth's magnetic field. The collision of solar particles and pressure into our planet's magnetosphere accelerates particles trapped in the space around Earth (such as in the radiation belts). Those particles are sent crashing down into Earth's upper atmosphere -- at altitudes of 100 to 400 kilometers (60 to 250 miles) -- where they excite oxygen and nitrogen molecules and release photons of light. The results are rays, sheets, and curtains of dancing light in the sky.

Auroras are a beautiful expression of the connection between Sun and Earth, but not all of the connections are benign. Auroras are connected to geomagnetic storms, which can distort radio communications (particularly high frequencies), disrupt electric power systems on the ground, and give slight but detectable doses of radiation to flight crews and passengers on high-latitude airplane flights and on spacecraft.

The advantage of images like those from VIIRS and DMSP is resolution, according to space physicist Patrick Newell of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. "You can see very fine detail in the aurora because of the low altitude and the high resolution of the camera," he said. Most aurora scientists prefer to use images from missions dedicated to aurora studies (such as Polar, IMAGE, and ground-based imagers), which can offer many more images of a storm (rather than one per orbit) and can allow researchers to calculate the energy moving through the atmosphere. There are no science satellites flying right now that provide such a view, though astronauts regularly photograph and film auroras from the International Space Station.

Design Project Part Two: Interpretation | Angela K. Johnson

I began conceiving of this project in a former post by sharing what I do and do not know about my design dilemma:?how to share the Socratic Seminar method with fellow educators, beginning with a one-hour introductory presentation. This phase began with an effort to address what I did not know, so in this post I?ll?discuss and interpret what I have learned. The issues are repeated below in bold type, and my research findings and interpretation follows.

1) How will I get quality videotape of the sessions I do?

I tried two methods for getting videotape?videocamera and Flipcam, and I?m not sure either one provided great clips, but a variety of student behaviors were recorded that could, I think, provide evidence of each skill. For one session I had a person available to work the videocamera, so clips from that day follow the conversation from student to student. I have compiled below a list of the desired behaviors the videos show. While the audio is low in some cases, I think my being miked and frequently paraphrasing or following up comments the students made helps to follow the conversation. One solution is to include subtitles in portions of the film that are difficult to hear, which will not be difficult in imovie.

2) How will I (or should I) edit video from several sessions to show what I need people to see to understand the power of the method?

I think I?ll need to splice video from a number of different sessions, though in some cases I?ll want to present two clips of the same class side by side to show a contrast or a progression.

I think it would be most effective to present the skills in roughly three sets: process skills, cognitive skills, and metacognitive skills. These skills also align well with the natural progression of a seminar, so they work chronologically as well.

Process skills will include skills such as taking turns, speaking up, listening attentively, involving everyone. Cognitive skills would follow: citing evidence, social construction of meaning through dialogue, group questioning, and summary of collective understanding. I would conclude with Metacognitive skills: individual self-assessment and goal-setting, group self-assessment and goal-setting, highlights of what worked, suggestions for improvement. The following chart lists skills in progressive order on the left and specific video clips that would show those skills on the right.

Skill Demonstrated by Students Specific Clips Highlighting Skill
1. the ability to share the conversation by taking turns Clips (2 back to back?) showing students yielding the conversation to one another, as in ?You can go first? or ?Oh sorry, I?ll wait.?
2. the ability to assert themselves in a large group setting Clip of students who rarely speak voicing an opinion.
3. the ability to involve others, by asking for the opinions of classmates who are more reticent Clip of student saying, ?What do you think, x??
4. the ability to refer to the text for evidence Clip of students citing specific lines, especially two in disagreement using those to support their assertions.
5. the ability to disagree and question each other?s assertions respectfully Clip of student saying, ?I disagree with x because??
6. the ability (of some) to build on the ideas of others over the course of the seminar Clip of students referring to what someone else said, as in ?I think x may be right because?? or ?I agree, because it also says that??
7. the ability (of some) to forward the conversation by asking relevant and authentic questions of the group Clip of student saying, ?I have a question: I wonder if anyone thinks??
8. the ability to move from limited to more complex understanding of a text as a collective group Clip of a person with contrasting thoughts at beginning and end of seminar, as in a sequence where ?I think ? because?? turns into a different interpretation: ?well, then, maybe ??
9. the ability to reflect metacognitively on the group?s performance and their level of success in sustaining meaningful conversation Clip of round robin at end of session where students discuss self-rating.
11. the ability to suggest and apply specific methods for personal or group performance improvement Clip of round robin recommendations for future performance: ?I think it would help us if we would??
11. the ability to reflect metacognitively on their individual performance and participation Slide of student self-eval sheets with goals for next seminar and written self-eval.

3) How will I divide up an hour session to include everything I need to convey adequately and effectively?

An hour isn?t much time, so I won?t really be able to TEACH people how to do this. What?s more important is to convince them of the power of the method and provide basic tools for starting. The specific skills and strategies for conducting a seminar are, in large part, learned by practicing. So, I need to motivate people to try and I need to make it easy to start. Then, perhaps in a web site, I can provide support for later challenges along the way. And it will be important to reiterate that this is a PROCESS which takes time to learn?risk taking is essential, and there WILL be times when the process feels like it isn?t working, but THAT?S PART OF THE PROCESS.

4) How will I gather and organize resources for supporting teachers?everything from how to teach kids the method, how to choose a text, how to choose a question, how to troubleshoot when the discussion isn?t working, how to help students who have difficulty, how to assess students, how to progress the group from one level to the next, how to deal with large classes, and much more?

These need to be presented in an organized way, available to teachers indefinitely into the future, and should be constantly evolving. Teachers need the basics that are essential for starting the process.???These would include the following.

1. rules of the process

2. physical setup, also for large classes

3. texts to start, and rules for choosing texts in progression

4. lists of possible questions to choose from for a variety of texts

5. basic troubleshooting for early sessions

6. assessment in early and secondary stages-round robin, goal-setting, tiers

7. moving up the expectations?

The Next Steps

These are steps I need to accomplish in the next phase of the project:

1. Review all video and make notes of sections that fulfill the criteria above?clips that will effectively show what I need to show. Order and organize these according to chart above.

2. Compile a list of questions that are good options for seminar starters. I have collected a list from the training I attended many years ago as well as lists from a couple of web sites about Socratic Seminars. I?ll take those questions and perhaps divide them up in categories depending on the type of text for which they can best be applied?so, for example, questions for fiction, for nonfiction, for video, for images, etc.

3. Compile the basic essential information a teacher needs to start seminars. This would include the rules of the process, the physical setup of the room, the basic elements of a seminar.

4. Compile a troubleshooting list in progression from problems likely to be seen in the earliest seminar attempts to those that will emerge as students continue in their development. I think this may be most useful in chart format, in which the problem is listed in the left column and the exact words a teacher may say to address that problem when it arises are in the right column.

5.?Compile a tiered progression of evaluation tools, from round robin verbal-only to early paper evals, to goal-setting based on those, and evaluation based on extent to which goals are met. This would also include the progression of tiered goals through which students must work.

The Presentation

I envision the presentation as scaffolded by video clips showing the progression of student behaviors. These might be divided by Ken Burns-style title screens with the skill in bold letters and the clips following them. These should include contrast between the earliest attempts and the most successful moments near the end?I want to leave people with a vision of what can be accomplished. Many of the resources listed above can be made available on a website, but I?ll need to give the audience a taste for these (with linked references) as the presentation progresses so they understand the importance of going back to find the resources. I?m thinking one slide per type of references, with an example or two and then a link to the full list.

Ashley Cole charged by FA for vulgar tweet

Associated Press Sports

updated 9:13 a.m. ET Oct. 8, 2012

LONDON (AP) -Chelsea defender Ashley Cole was charged by England's Football Association with misconduct Monday after criticizing the governing body in a vulgar Twitter post, adding to the fallout from a yearlong racism case involving teammate John Terry.

The England left back reacted angrily Friday after an FA commission questioned the evidence he gave in defending Terry against a charge of racially abusing an opponent.

The FA said the charge relates "to a Twitter comment which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute."

Cole, who faces a fine, has until Thursday to respond to the charge. He has already issued an apology through his lawyers and deleted the tweet, which read: "Hahahahaa, well done (hash)fa I lied did I," followed by a vulgar expression.

Chelsea is also set to fine Cole, with manager Roberto Di Matteo saying the club has launched disciplinary action over the tweet.

Cole is currently on national-team duty with England ahead of World Cup qualifiers against San Marino on Friday and Poland next Tuesday. If he plays in both games, he will become the sixth player to make 100 appearances for England.

He backed up Terry's defense that a racial slur toward Anton Ferdinand in a Premier League match in October last year was only used to counter an accusation of racism Terry claimed Ferdinand was leveling at him.

Cole told Terry's criminal trial in July that he believed he heard Ferdinand use the word "black" during the confrontation - something the QPR player denied saying. Terry was cleared of the criminal charges but found guilty by the FA commission.

In its written judgment released Friday, the commission said Cole did not mention the word "black" in the initial interview with them after the match and accused him of evolving his evidence.

He is the second player to face an FA charge for tweeting about Terry's racism case. Rio Ferdinand was previously fined 45,000 pounds (then $71,000) after being found guilty of referencing ethic origin and race when he re-tweeted a user's comment that referred to Cole as a "choc ice," a slang term perceived as meaning black on the outside and white on the inside.

Different degrees of addiction

Do you think there are degrees of addiction?? For example, H was in rehab over a year ago for cocaine addiction. 'Clean' for almost a year. Then relapsed about 4 months ago - he says only a few times using cocaine again - but now smoking hash daily. He arrived at my house last week (first real contact in 4 months - since he screamed at me to 'get the hell out of his life") . He did/said all the things I was warned about on SR. Declared his undying love; Promised he would never hurt my like that again; Said he screamed at me as he was trying to push me away as didn't want to hurt me; felt such shame; blah blah blah
The frightening thing is if it weren't for SR - I would have listened, and probably reasoned with myself that 'well as long as he is not using cocaine then it's okay' (Dear God where was my mind)....
But the question is - 'even though' he claims he is not using cocaine and 'only' smoking some hash' - is the nature of his addiction stil the same - would it be at that same dangerous, destructive level, it was when he went into rehab for cocaine???
He was in therapy (intensive) for 4 months - is it at all possible that he has not comletely 'relapsed' in the sense of his thinking and daily routine?
Or is he as sick as he was on cocaine? But just without the aggressive more 'obvious' signs of addiction when on cocaine??

I think that addiction is all the same iam alcoholic but I know that if I start doing anything else that alters my state of mind I will eventfully get hooked it's my character. Obviously the drug of choice relates to behaviours for instance if I was hooked on cholocate cakes that's still self destructive but less destructive to my family than say alcohol or heroin. My point is that in order to be recovered we must be totally sober from any forms of mind altering substances! No levels of addictions one hole that we are all slipping down some are closer to the bottom than others, but it all heads to the same place... Hell.

Addiction is a progressive disease, it gets worse over time. Most active addicts I know who "cut back" to pot or beer or whatever their cut back drug was, were either lying or just putting in time until they were right back into their own drug of choice.

It doesn't get better until they stop. And they don't stop until they have tried everything possible to keep using, hoping nobody will notice...some die trying.

There are no "good drugs" or better than other drugs. They are all bad, they all take addiction to a dark and scary place, and they all lead to jails, institutions or death.

He is using. He is a drug addict. Does not matter what mind altering
chemical it is he is NOT clean and sober. He Is Using!!!!

The only improvement for addiction is abstinence. He is not abstinent!

You are doing great, keep moving forward!!!!!

It took me years of smoking cigarettes before I was fully addicted, but once addicted, even when I gave up I went right back to the same level of addiction I was at when I stopped. This was even the case when I gave up for 5 years. I believe other addictions work in the same way. Once you go down that slippery slope there is no stopping it.

If your happiness depends on your children being happy, that makes them your hostages. So stay out of their business, stop using them for your happiness, and be your own happiness. That way you are the teacher for your children: someone who knows how to live a happy life

Different drugs present themselves in various ways. But whether the associated behavior is violent, lying, cheating, stealing, nodding, depressed, manic, suicidal, sexual, non-sexual, or even just not participating in daily life or not meeting adult responsibilities?to me it is UNACCEPTABLE and I will not allow that in my life, nor settle for crumbs.

Nice words aren't always true.

I believe that there are "stages" of addiction very much like there are stages of cancer. Initially, it may not be noticed or simply referred to as someone who "likes to have fun". It progresses to having a few relationship problems or some issues with school or work. It continues to progress until it takes over an individual's life and becomes the focus of their existance. At least, this is what I have witnessed with my son's addiction.

It's progressive. You can't be considered in remission from cancer if you still have it "a little bit". Addiction is all or nothing. Either a person is using or they aren't.....they can't be "sort of using"........not when addiction is involved. In fact, most addicts, in their attempt to control that which they cannot control, go through a phase (one or many times) of trying to cut back or change the drug of choice to something they consider more acceptable (beer, pot, hash, etc.). These are the lies they tell themselves (and us) that keeps them (and us) in the cycle of addiction (and codependency).

But because it is progressive, they can't move backwards.....only forward in their addiction......or they can arrest it through abstinence (and hopefully recovery) to keep it from progressing.

Addiction is ugly. Addiction is tricky. Addiction causes addicts to lie to other people......but the worst lies are the lies they tell themselves.

UK shares falls on earnings, growth concerns

* FTSE 100 index falls 0.7 percent

* Concerns about growth, Q3 earnings hit sentiment

* Growth-linked sectors suffer; banks, miners slide

* Technical factors suggest room for a bounceback

LONDON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Britain's top share index fell on

Monday as concerns about the looming third quarter earnings

season and the global economic outlook hurt growth-linked

sectors like banking and mining.

Analysts said the FTSE 100, down 0.7 percent at

5,828.88 by 1119 GMT. could fall 2-3 percent more in the near

term, with sentiment dented by a cut in the World Bank's growth

forecasts for the East Asia and Pacific region.

But a likely aid request from Spain and hoped-for clarity on

U.S. spending cuts and tax rises could improve the mood, and

technical factors suggested the market could thereafter bounce


The World Bank also said there was a risk the slowdown in

the world's biggest metals consumer China could worsen,

triggering a sharp sell-off in UK mining stocks.

The mining index fell 1.4 percent.

"The World Bank's downgrade is another indication of the

various concerns ... which are likely to be reflected in the

earnings results," Mike Lenhoff, chief strategist at Brewin

Dolphin, said.

The market was vulnerable to profit taking and could give up

another 100-150 points before recovering, he said.

Analysts said earnings estimates had been cut over recent

weeks, led by energy and materials firms and economically

sensitive sectors such as financials.

The UK banking index was down 1.4 percent,

pressured by Standard Chartered, Barclays and

Royal Bank of Scotland, down 1.9 to 2.3 percent ahead of

the results season that starts with U.S. aluminium firm Alcoa

on Tuesday.

According to Thomson Reuters data, earnings for the U.S. S&P

500 companies are forecast to have fallen 2.4 percent

from a year earlier, the first drop in three years. The earnings

season in Europe will pick up in the second half of October.

Cookson Group, which makes products for the global

steel industry, and recruiter Michael Page on Monday

became the latest UK firms to issue profit warnings. Cookson

fell 13.7 percent while Michael Page shed 1.3 percent.

BAE Systems fell 1 percent after its largest

shareholder issued a long list of objections to the group's

proposed $45 billion merger with EADS.


Charts showed that the FTSE 100 index's medium-term outlook

remained good. The index is up 4.6 percent so far this year and

has advanced more than 11 percent since hitting a low in June.

"I remain relatively positive as the four-and-a-half-month

uptrend is still intact," Dominic Hawker, technical analyst at

Westhouse Securities, said.

He said that it was encouraging that the index still traded

above its uptrend line, now at around 5,750 and which could

prove to offer strong support. The index faced a tough

resistance at around 6,000 points, its 2012 high.

Analysts said UK equities had become expensive following

recent price moves, but were still relatively attractive.

According to Thomson Reuters Datastream, the FTSE 100 index

traded at 10.7 times its one-year forward earnings, up from 6.6

times in October 2008 but below its 10-year average of 11.5.

"Stocks are not dirt cheap, but valuations are still OK and

wouldn't be an issue when it comes to investing," Lenhoff said.

Youth soccer coach slain in brutal NYC stabbing

Police hope surveillance footage will help solve the murder of a youth soccer coach who was stabbed to death in New York City and had his ear cut off. WNBC's Katherine Creag reports.

By and NBC News staff

Police are searching for a man who stabbed a youth soccer coach and cut off his ear before leaving him to die on a New York City sidewalk near Union Square early Sunday.

Police responded to a call of an assault on West 14th Street at about 4:30 a.m. and discovered 25-year-old Michael Jones lying in a pool of blood with stab wounds to his stomach and neck. His ear had also been cut off, police said.

More on this story from?

?I ran down to the ambulance (down the block) and said, ?You?d better get down there. There?s a guy on the ground with his throat cut,?? passer-by Malachi Mohamed, 39, told the New York Post.


Jones, a native of Liverpool, England, and soccer coach for the Red Bulls Youth Training Programs, was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital. He lived in West Harrison in Westchester County.

?He coached two of my three sons and was just a great guy. He cared about what he did, and was very dedicated,? Mark Fischer, who oversees refs for the Westchester league, told the Post. ?The kids loved him.?

Police released surveillance video of the male suspect believed to have stabbed Jones as they canvassed the neighborhood looking for potential witnesses.?Jones' attacker was described as a man between the ages of 25 and 30 with a dark ponytail.

The New York Red Bulls issued a statement calling Jones a "fantastic coach who loved soccer."

Police sources said that robbery did not appear to be the motive. The investigation is ongoing.

Jason Aldean apologizes to wife for 'Idol' kiss

Steve Marcus / REUTERS

By Us Weekly

Country singer Jason Aldean is so very sorry.?The musician issued a public apology Sunday via his Facebook page, apologizing for his actions after photos of him cozying up to a woman -- "American Idol" season 11 hopeful Brittany Kerr, and not his wife, Jessica Ussery -- hit the Internet.

PHOTOS: Celebs who were caught cheating

"The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar," Aldean, 35, wrote of his indiscretion at The Den bar on Wednesday. "I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story." (TMZ first broke news of Aldean's PDA with Kerr, posting a series of incriminating photos of the pair kissing on their web site early Sunday.)

PHOTOS: Stars gone country

"I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys," the "Take a Little Ride" crooner continued. "I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support."

PHOTOS: Celeb scandals

Aldean married Ussery, his high school sweetheart, in 2001. They have two daughters, Keeley, 9, and Kendyl, 5.
