The New York Times

KOSOVO - Nato and Russian military commanders cleared the way for about 3,600 more Russian troops to arrive in the Serbian province after weeks of wrangling. There is also a report on one Kosovo village, Bela Crkva, which finally buried its dead. Most of the 64 people laid to final rest had been buried previously by other villagers. The reburial came after war crimes investigators completed their work in the town.

GUNMAN - Those who encountered Benjamin Smith say they never saw him commit racially motivated violence before his three-day shooting rampage last week, but they saw him become more willing to express his racist views.

HEATWAVE - A second day of 100-degree (Fahrenheit) temperatures from the Carolinas to New England on Monday turned the holiday into a time of torture, with vacationers fleeing beaches that scorched, only to find that some highways had buckled.

DIRT DIGGING - Private investigators are playing a larger -- though mostly hidden -- role in the public arena, digging up dirt on everyone from regulators to elected national and small-town officials.

KASHMIR - Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is likely to find it difficult to deliver on his pledge to the Americans that he would seek to withdraw Pakistani-backed forces from the Indian side of the cease-fire line in the disputed territory of Kashmir.

WORK DOGS - Perhaps it was only a matter of time before the dog's snout pushed its way into the corporate tent. The national observance last month of the first Take Your Dog to Work Day suggests office dogs are on the rise.

ECONOMIC BOOM - An entrepreneurial impulse in the eastern hollows of Kentucky will be on the President's agenda as he begins a tour on Monday of some of the nation's most entrenched poverty regions.

ISRAEL - By appointing loyal old-timers to two key posts in his Cabinet and keeping a third for himself, Israeli Prime Minister-elect Ehud Barak appeared on Monday to be trying to consolidate his hold on power as he completed his government.

DOLPHINS - Scientists, following a trail of bloody clues, are discovering that dolphins are far from the happy, peaceful creatures that humans think they know.
