Another tech boom has brought an influx of money and new residents to San Francisco, and people who have long called the city home are being evicted from their apartments. Tenants and community organizers are demanding that the city do something to stop residents from being pushed out.
A judge was expected to announce Tuesday whether Detroit can come up with a plan to get rid of $18 billion in debt. It's the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. The case could ultimately crack a shield protecting public pensions and also put the city's extraordinary art collection up for grabs.
The U.S. aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 80 percent by 2050. Wind and solar power can help. But folks doing the math say other pricey, controversial technologies — such as burying carbon gas underground, and expanding nuclear power — are also likely to be part of a low-carbon future.
The polio outbreak in Syria has spread to four cities, and new cases are suspected each day. But U.N. agencies responsible for combating the outbreak can work only with the Syrian government. This limitation has hobbled vaccination efforts in rebel-held regions, where the virus was first detected.

More than 1 million people will immediately see their extended federal unemployment benefits cut off if Congress doesn't act by the end of December. Supporters and their Democratic allies in Congress are pushing to keep the emergency program going through 2014, but it will be a tough sell.
The Republican National Commission tweeted Saturday about Parks' "bold stand in ending racism," triggering a snark avalanche. While the gaffe was relatively minor, it plays into the damaging narrative about the Republican Party — that it only pays lip service to the notion of increasing its appeal to minority voters.
