Walmart will cut health insurance coverage for employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week. Starting January 1, these 30,000 part-time workers will be left without health benefits. The move by the nation's largest private employer follows similar cuts made by Home Depot and Target to curtail the rising costs of paying for insurance. "We have to make some decisions," said Sally Wellborn, Walmart's senior vice president of benefits. Walmart, which has 1.4 million full- and part-time employees, previously announced that 1.2 million workers and their families had enrolled in their health care plan.

The memo was sent in advance of an owners' meeting to be held Wednesday. It brings up concerns about when a player should be placed on leave and whether he should be paid or unpaid.

Kenneth Thompson was elected as Brooklyn district attorney last year with high hopes that he'd crackdown on ultra-Orthodox sex abuse. But Thompson has hardly rectified his predecessor's perceived weakness in prosecuting sex abuse in the religious community, reports Emily Shire. Thompson has handed out sweetheart plea deals both to sex offenders and those who assault victim advocates.
