    Stafurik was 14th out of 28 fencers in the senior mixed epee division, beating out LAFC’s coach, Tom Hill, who finished 20th.
    Stafurik also finished sixth in the veteran combined epee.
    Other competitors from LAFC were Nicolas Voss, Mark Gulley and William Gulley.

  • White House unveiling plans to curb regulations

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House would eliminate requirements for trapping polluting vapors at gasoline stations and let employers and hospitals file fewer reports as part of a plan it announced Thursday to ease regulatory burdens on business.

    More than four months after President Barack Obama ordered agencies to weed out rules that stifle economic growth, the administration on Thursday released some details of hundreds of regulatory changes that the White House said could save businesses billions of dollars and tens of millions of hours of work.

  • Obama, Medvedev meeting shows continued mistrust

    DEAUVILLE, France (AP) — President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev emerged from private talks Thursday unable to show progress on the contentious issue of missile defense, underscoring an enduring mistrust underlying the U.S.-Russia relationship despite gradual thawing.

    Obama's top Russia adviser Mike McFaul put the problem plainly after the meeting with the Russians: "They don't believe us," he said.

  • Clashes widen in Yemen as tribes warn of civil war

    SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Intense battles spread across Yemen's capital Thursday between government forces and opposition militiamen from powerful tribes that warn of civil war unless embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh steps down. At least 28 people were killed as the four-day death toll neared 110.

    The fight — led the Yemen's largest tribe — poses the most significant challenge to Saleh's rule after three months of street demonstrations and failed Arab mediation to ease him from office. Yemen's tribes command well-armed militias and can tap into traditional clan-based loyalties to possibly tips the scales against Saleh's 32-year rule.

    No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack in Hangu city. But the Pakistani Taliban have taken credit for other recent strikes, saying they are part of a campaign to avenge the al-Qaida leader's death.
