In this July 12, 2014, photo, Central American migrants ride a freight train during their journey toward the U.S.-Mexico border in Ixtepec, Mexico. The last time so few people were arrested at the country’s borders was 1973, when the Border Patrol recorded just fewer than 500,000 arrests. And the volume of people being arrested at the border remains dramatically lower than the all-time high of more than 1.6 people in 2000. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats prepared Tuesday to whack $1 billion from President Barack Obama's emergency spending request for the border, while leaving out policy changes Republicans have demanded as their price for agreeing to any money. The developments pointed to a hardening stalemate over the crisis in South Texas with lawmakers preparing to leave Washington for their annual summer recess at the end of next week.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s fight to clean up water pollution is getting a splash of pop culture, thanks to a flub involving Kardashian. The verified Twitter account for the EPA’s Office of Water mistakenly published a note on July 21 about an online game, "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood," in which players walk red carpets, attend photo shoots and get dolled up like a Kardashian. An agency spokeswoman said the off-topic tweet was done by a temporary employee. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)WASHINGTON (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency's fight to clean up water pollution got a splash of pop culture Tuesday, thanks to an Internet flub involving reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella speaks during his keynote address at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014 at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC on July 16, 2014Microsoft said Tuesday profits took a hit from its newly acquired Nokia phone division but that revenues got a strong lift from cloud services. The US tech giant's new chief executive Satya Nadella said the results suggested that Microsoft's shift to services amid declining personal computer sales was starting to pay off. The earnings came just days after Microsoft announced its biggest job cuts ever with Nadella calling for a new focus at the US tech giant while integrating the Nokia phone division acquired this year. The company said it would slash 18,000 jobs from its global workforce over the next year, the majority from the Nokia handset unit.
