FILE - In this Feb. 20, 2015, file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in Washington.  Relying on Republicans and going against the grain of his own party for his legislative successes has not been much of a go-to play in Obama's game plan. Then there's international trade. On Thursday, Feb. 26, Obama stepped up his campaign for expanding exports and negotiating new trade deals in Asia and Europe, a rare spot of common ground with Republicans and a raw point of friction with Democrats.

FILE-  In this Oct. 4, 2005, file photo, Danielle Holland reacts as she is given a FluMist influenza vaccination in St. Leonard, Md. The makers of AstraZeneca FluMist spray version of the flu vaccine say now they know why it has failed to protect young U.S. children against swine flu — fragile doses got too warm. The vaccine works well for most flu strains, but small studies found it didn't work very well against the swine flu bug that first emerged in 2009. Swine flu has returned each year since but wasn't a big player this flu season. At a medical meeting Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, company officials said they investigated and concluded that the swine flu part of the vaccine is unusually sensitive to heat.

  • Just Like Humans, Animals Help Save Lives by Donating Blood

    You've probably heard that you can save three lives every time you give blood, but what about your pet? As veterinary medicine advances, there is a growing need for dog and cat donors too. "I'd hate for somebody else to lose their dog because there wasn't enough blood supply when my dogs are able to be donors," says Karen Riggs of Chesterfield.

  • Va. court ruling on business taxes could mean big loss of tax revenue

    Local governments in Northern Virginia are bracing for millions of dollars in potential tax refunds to businesses after a Virginia Supreme Court ruling on how out-of-state receipts can be deducted from a company's taxable income. The refunds would mean tens of millions of dollars less in revenue in government coffers when budgets are already tight because of a weak commercial real estate market, a still-anemic local economy, and the ever-growing demands for new and better schools and other services.
