The New York Times

CHRISTIAN POLITICS - The Christian Coalition, which has led the charge of the religious right in politics, is now weathering financial and leadership turmoil that could affect its ability to exert widespread influence in the 2000 election, current and former staff members say.

LIVE LIVER DONORS - The use of a living donor to provide a liver transplant has been performed fewer than 100 times in the U.S. It is a bold response to the shortage of livers from cadavers, which doctors say could rewrite the history of liver transplantation.

SERBIA - Although Belgraders want political change and an end to Yugoslavia's isolation, many say they are not about to go hungry to make it happen.

REAL ESTATE BOOM - In a real estate boom taking place up and down New Jersey's industrial coast, developers are building as fast as they can, and reshaping the skyline from Bayonne to the George Washington Bridge. But not everyone is caught up in the real estate euphoria.

MEXICO - The primary campaign for Mexico's presidential race has boiled down to President Zedillo and a longtime nemesis. Although the President renounced the tradition of presidents picking the party candidate, he may have to decide whether to honor his pledge or reassert his power.

MICROSOFT - The company is thriving, the shareholders are rich and its name is synonymous with high technology and success. But is the Microsoft Corp.'s sterling image losing some of its luster?

ATOMIC SECRETS - Speaking publicly in his own defense, Wen Ho Lee, the scientist dismissed from his job after security breaches at Los Alamos National Laboratory, said on he was innocent and that he had not divulged nuclear secrets to China or to "any unauthorized person."

STARR - For many in Arkansas, the mood these days is like the familiar exhale of relief that follows the destructive storms of summer as Kenneth Starr, the Whitewater independent counsel, declared the Arkansas phase of his investigation over.
