BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — Composer Steven Sametz has written dozens of pieces in his long and prolific career, perhaps none so personal as the one he's about to begin: a requiem for the victims of the schoolhouse massacre in Newtown, Conn.
By Foo Yun Chee and Karolin Schaps BRUSSELS/LONDON (Reuters) - The European Commission will open an investigation next week into planned British support for a new nuclear power plant, three people familiar with the matter said, in a precedent-setting case for future nuclear funding in Europe. Britain has offered EDF a price guarantee lasting 35 years on power from a plant which the French utility plans to build in southwest England. The European Commission's competition directorate will investigate the length of the contract, the agreed minimum electricity price and a government loan guarantee, one of the sources said. "Britain says this (assistance) is necessary because it's a nuclear project," the source said.
