Kenseth wins rain-shortened Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Matt Kenseth drove from the back of the field to take the Daytona 500 lead minutes before the sky opened up, handing the former series champion his first victory in NASCAR's version of the Super Bowl.

Coming off one of the worst seasons of his career, Kenseth's bad luck followed him into Daytona International Speedway. He wrecked his primary car, had to go to a backup and started Sunday's race in last place.

Investigator: Plane fell flat onto Buffalo house

CLARENCE, N.Y. - Continental Connection Flight 3407's yoke was shaking as the plane fought to stay aloft, its deicing mechanisms pulsing to crack ice away.

The commuter plane was approaching a runway at Buffalo Niagara International Airport when its safety systems warned pilot Capt. Marvin Renslow that the plane was perilously close to losing lift and falling from the sky. The stick automatically pushed forward, the plane's nose dropping in a last-minute corrective measure before it belly-flopped onto a house in a fireball - landing with its nose pointed away from the runway.

Recession, fires: double trouble for the Red Cross

NEW YORK - The worsening recession, coupled with a seasonal surge of house fires, has depleted the resources of many American Red Cross chapters as they struggle to meet rising demands at a time of dwindling donations.

Red Cross staff have been laid off in San Diego and Long Beach, California; in western Oregon; Minnesota's Twin Cities, Tampa, Florida, and elsewhere. Office hours have been cut back, salaries trimmed, training programs scrapped.

ATLANTA - Inside the B-17 bomber, five miles high over Germany in 1944, the temperature fell to 50 degrees below zero. Lt. Jonathan Swift, U.S. Air Force, wore thick gloves to keep his hands from getting stuck to his bombardier's sight like a kid's tongue on a flagpole.

The recovery plan: A national jolt to economy

WASHINGTON - America is bringing shock and awe to the home front, using dollars instead of bombs.

Officials: Plane crew saw ice before crash

BUFFALO, New York - The crew of the commuter plane that crashed into a suburban Buffalo, New York, house, killing all 49 people aboard and one person on the ground, noticed significant ice buildup on the wings and windshield just before the aircraft began pitching and rolling violently, investigators said Friday.

Officials stopped short of saying the ice buildup caused Thursday night's crash and stressed that nothing has been ruled out. But ice on the wings can interfere catastrophically with an aircraft's handling and has been blamed for a number of major air disasters over the years.

New jobless claims drop slightly to 623K

WASHINGTON - Nearly 5 million Americans continued to draw jobless benefits late last month, and new requests again exceeded 600,000 as companies lay off scores of workers amid a deepening recession.

In slightly better economic news, retail sales rose unexpectedly in January, reversing six months of decline and following a dismal holiday season. But analysts said the jump was unlikely to last, partly because of the weak job market.

When toddlers point a lot, more words will follow

WASHINGTON - Don't just talk to your toddler - gesture, too. Pointing, waving bye-bye and other natural gestures seem to boost a budding vocabulary.

Scientists found those tots who could convey more meaning with gestures at age 14 months went on to have a richer vocabulary as they prepared to start kindergarten. And intriguingly, whether a family is poor or middle class plays a role, the researchers report Friday.
