HONG KONG (AP) — Student leaders of Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests warned that if the territory's top official doesn't resign by Thursday they will step up their actions, including occupying several important government buildings. By raising the stakes in the standoff, the protesters are risking another round of confrontation with police, who are unlikely to allow government buildings to be stormed. It also puts pressure on the Chinese government, which so far has said little beyond declaring the protests illegal and backing Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying's attempts to end them.

FBI turns animal cruelty into top-tier felony

This file photo combo shows from left to right serial killers the Boston Strangler Albert DeSalvo, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz. Several studies show that most serial killers start their lives as sociopaths by torturing or killing pets. For years, the FBI has filed animal cruelty crimes with a variety of others under the heading of “other,” making them hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. That’s changing. The FBI announced this month it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category, the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed in the agency’s Uniform Crime Report Program. (AP Photo) LOS ANGELES (AP) — Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says.

Analysts have been warning U.S. factories could feel a chill from soft demand in the global economy and from recent strength in the U.S. dollar, and the ISM data could be an indication of this.
