NEW YORK (AP) — The Fire Department of New York says there are "multiple injuries" in a Metro-North passenger train derailment, but the extent of the injuries is unclear.
The FDNY says the train derailment in the Bronx was reported at 7:20 a.m. Sunday near the Spuyten Duyvil station. The fire department says 130 firefighters are on the scene.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says four or five cars on the seven-car train derailed about 100 yards north of the station on a curved section of the track. But the MTA says none of the cars entered the Hudson or Harlem rivers, which are adjacent.
The agency says the crash was reported by the engineer and it wasn't clear if any crew members are injured.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans don't trust each other anymore.
For four decades, a gut-level ingredient of democracy — trust in the other fellow — has been quietly draining away.
These days, only one-third of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question.
Forty years later, a record high of nearly two-thirds say "you can't be too careful" in dealing with people.
Does it matter?
Social scientists say it does.
What's known as "social trust" brings about good things.
A society where it's easier to compromise or make a deal. Where people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. Where trust even appears to promote economic growth.
BOSTON (AP) — As it seeks investors, the Cape Wind offshore wind farm faces fast-approaching benchmarks that it must meet or risk missing out on hundreds of millions of dollars in critical funding for the oft-delayed project.
To qualify for a tax credit that would cover a major portion of its capital costs, the wind farm off the Massachusetts coast must begin construction by Dec. 31 or prove it's incurred tens of millions of dollars in costs by then.
Also, a $200 million investment from a Danish pension fund is conditioned on whether developers can finance the rest of the $2.6 billion project by year's end.
Cape Wind isn't discussing progress on construction, the tax credit or financing. But spokesman Mark Rodgers said the project remains on track and will be built.
