    NEWS (Use News Intro and Bed in Megaseg):

    Japan's economy unexpectedly shrank for the second consecutive quarter, leaving the world's third largest economy in technical recession. Gross domestic product (GDP) fell at an annualised 1.6% from July to September, compared with forecasts of a 2.1% rise.

    Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked a sweeping overhaul of the once-secret National Security Agency program that collects records of Americans’ phone calls in bulk. Democrats and a handful of Republicans who supported the measure failed to secure the 60 votes they needed to take up the legislation. The vote was 58 to 42 for consideration. Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, worked hard to defeat the bill, which had the support of the Obama administration and a coalition of technology companies, including Apple, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo.


    SPORTS (Discretionary Sports Bed in Megaseg):

    RIC Hockey lost in a shootout 4 to 3 against Westfield State at home on Friday, and has a RIVAL GAME against Roger Williams University this Friday. Puck drops at 8:10 pm.

    The New England Patriots defeated the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, by a score of 42-20, to improve to a record of 8 and 2 on the season.  New England takes on the Detroit Lions at home, in Foxboro next Sunday at 1 pm.
