DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria's state media says Damascus welcomes the international community's nuclear deal with Iran, calling it a "historic agreement."

Iran agreed with the U.S. and five other world powers to a temporary freeze of its nuclear program for six months in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief.

Iran is a chief backer of President Bashar Assad's government.

Activists fear the deal will take international pressure off of Iran and embolden Syria's government to use an even harder hand to quash the 3-year-old uprising.

The Sunday report from SANA, a mouthpiece for the views of Assad's government, quoted an unnamed Foreign Ministry official.

SAN QUENTIN, Calif. (AP) — An innovative training program that prepares prison inmates for jobs in the tech sector has expanded.

The rigorous, six-month course was launched at San Quentin State Prison north of San Francisco by a pair of successful Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.

The program is "bootstrapping," as its organizers say, with just 12 graduates in its first two years, but a new session began this month at the Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility.

The program uses local experts as volunteer instructors, teaching carefully selected prisoners to design and launch technology firms.

The five graduates released so far have landed real jobs at real dot-coms.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The Boulder County Coroner's Office says the climbing death of a 20-year-old Missouri man in Rocky Mountain National Park was an accident.

The Daily Camera reports Paul Nahon of Springfield died after falling about 150 feet from the Narrows on the Keyhole Route on Longs Peak on August 15th. The route had ice in several spots.

Nahon, a 2011 graduate of Glendale High School in Springfield, won state tennis titles in 2010 and 2011 and held the record for most tennis wins in Missouri Class Two high school history with an overall record of 117-7.

He had recently transferred to Colorado College.

Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt says Nahon worked as an intern in his Washington office over the summer.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — The dogs and cats at the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri aren't just sitting around in their pens while waiting to be adopted.

The society in Cape Girardeau has begun a kennel enrichment program to reduce the stress for animals. The program includes playing music, using oils to stimulate dogs' sense of smell and providing the animals with different toys and activities to keep them moving. As an added bonus, potential owners can see the animals being playful.

The Southeast Missourian reports the games include "Cheerios from Heaven," for dogs, when a staffer throws cereal in the air and lets the dogs find it. For cats, toys made of feathers and other items are hung in kennels to give the animals something to rub on and bat around.
