Visa

QuestCinq.com/News/05/03/2013 Azamat Tazhayakov (centre), accused of obstructing the FBI investigation into the bombings, returned to the US while not enrolled at university The US is tightening its screening of international students, its first security change in response to the Boston Marathon bombings last month.

But neither had legal permission to live in the U.S., nor was it clear whether their insurance would pay for the long-term rehabilitation they needed. So Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines took matters into its own…

A simple graph, it tracked fourth-grade reading scores. In 1998, when Bush was elected governor, Florida kids scored far below the national average. By the end of his second term, in 2007, they were far ahead, with especially impressive gains for low-income and minority students. Those results earned Bush bipartisan acclaim. As he convenes a star-studded policy summit…
