• Flush with oil profits, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has pledged nearly $9 billion in aid to other Latin American nations, more than double the aid sent by the Bush administration in 2005. The aid has been directed to new left-leaning governments in Central and South America.

• NYC's Mayor Michael Bloomberg, eyeing an independent run for the White House, has claimed success in handing over the city's public education system to corporate manager.
