The Battle To Get English-language Radio In Brussels

By Laurence Norman Nov. 27, 2013 5:17 p.m. ET VILNIUS, LithuaniaEurope's top officials will descend on this capital Thursday for a summit once billed as a watershed in transforming European Union ties with its eastern neighbors but now seen as an effort to salvage them.

Four years later, her tenacious pursuit of a deal to curb Iran's nuclear program has won plaudits that may change history's verdict on her. Kerry called her "a persistent and dogged negotiator and somebody who's been staying at this for a long period of time". More than 50 governments sent her tributes. A decade in the making, the agreement obliges Iran to suspend its most sensitive nuclear work in return for relief from some economic sanctions. It is meant to give world powers time to negotiate a broader settlement that would ensure Iran does not pursue an atom bomb, which Tehran denies it is seeking. DRILLING DOWN Her low profile may have suited Ashton, 57, in the role of coordinator for six world powers - the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany - negotiating with Iran. <br>More:

It shouldnt be a surprise, because, given proper respect, Brussels sprouts are one of the finest cool-weather vegetables. Cooked properly, they have all the delicate sweetness of great cabbage, but with a more complex vegetable flavor. If you really want to stun people, use Brussels sproutsas a centerpiece -- they come dozens to a single thick stalk, looking like a vegetable from Mars. How to choose: Select Brussels sprouts that are vivid green and tightly closed. As they sit, the leaves will begin to separate and the edges will yellow. Squeeze the head -- it should be hard enough that there is very little give. <br>More:,0,2515212.story

Nothing splinters a Thanksgiving table quite like Brussels sprouts. Most people loathe them, conjuring the mushy, sulfurous orbs that famously taunted Beaver Cleaver in the '50s. Others actually like Brussels that way, and will devote themselves to fussily cutting an "X" into each one, before steaming or boiling them into submission. Then there's the new-wavers like me, who adore them roasted with plenty of garlic and olive oil. This year, I'm whipping up a pox on all housesor possibly, an (extra-virgin) olive branch to unite them. <br>More:

During his trip from December 3 to December 6, Kerry will attend an annual meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) foreign ministers in Brussels and will become the first secretary of State to visit Moldova in more than two decades. Kerry had planned to visit Israel last week but postponed the trip and travelled instead to Geneva, where six major powers and Iran reached an interim agreement that would constrain the Iranian nuclear program in return for limited sanctions relief. The agreement has drawn sharp criticism from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who described it as a "historic mistake" and expressed fears that the lifting of some sanctions would make it easier for Tehran to pursue a covert nuclear weapons program. During his visit, Kerry will go to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to try to push forward a U.S-brokered peace process, following friction over Israel's plans for new settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. In Moldova, Kerry will meet with senior government officials to discuss issues of common interest and the country's integration into Western Europe. Kerry dropped plans last week to attend a meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Ukraine after that country halted plans for trade and political deals with the European Union. The EU blamed political pressure from Russia for Ukraine's about-turn. <br>More:

Correction: Canada-the Other Candidate Story

free It is estimated that one in seven children go to school hungry.

Plans gone awry When Target laid out its plans for Canadian expansion at the beginning of 2013, company leaders expected a relatively smooth start-up period. The costs of opening more than 100 stores in a short period of time were sure to impact earnings in the short run, but the effect was supposed to be minimal and short-lived. Going into the year, Target projected that the Canadian expansion would reduce full-year EPS by $0.45, with the Kardashian vast majority of that dilution occurring in the first half of the year. In the first quarter, while the Canadian segment lost money, it achieved a strong gross margin performance and the launch seemed to be on track. At that time, management expected that the Canadian operation would turn profitable as early as the fourth quarter! <br>More:
