Breaking: White powder scare at Philadelphia's Liberty Bell 20 May 2010 U.S. authorities were investigating a balloon containing a suspicious white powder at Philadelphia's Liberty Bell Center on Thursday. "It is being treated as a hazardous material, but it is nothing explosive. It has preliminarily tested negative for radiological, biological and explosives so we're still trying to determine what it is," said FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver. He said one street and a pedestrian mall had been shut down while the investigation continued.

Senate overcomes GOP obstacle on overhaul of financial rules --Democrats, with the help of three Republicans, vote to close debate on the rewrite of financial regulations. 20 May 2010 The Senate on Thursday broke through Republican opposition and voted to close debate on the most sweeping reform of financial rules since the Great Depression keeping 'too big to fail' as policy and the Bankster Party in power, paving the way for passage of the landmark bill by week's end. The 60-40 vote ended a potential filibuster that stood as the last major hurdle to Senate approval of the bill. The legislation would establish a consumer financial protection bureau within the Federal Reserve, expand government regulation of the financial industry and establish other safeguards against a repeat of the severe financial crisis that struck in 2008.
