Now that the New York Times pay wall is live, you only get 20 free clicks a month. For those worried about hitting their limit, we're taking a look through the paper each morning to find the stories that can make your clicks count.
At the top of the home page, a report on Pakistani Army chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani says the most powerful man in Pakistan is fighting to save his job over backlash for the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden. And just below that, the report that Ayman al-Zawahri will be taking over Al Qaeda in bin Laden's place seems to put a pin in the fallout on the terrorist side. But our top pick comes from closer to home, in Vancouver, where surprisingly violent riots swept the streets after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup.
World: In further news form the war on terror, the report on an Indonesian cleric who received a 15-year sentence for supporting radical groups sheds some light on the state of militants in Southeast Asia. And in case you'd forgotten about the U.S. plan to post missiles in the Czech Republic, well, the Czechs hadn't, and they've pulled out of the George W. Bush-instigated deal. Finally, the story about a Greek cabinet reshuffle is hardly unique, but it's a good check-in with the situation there, and it comes with a great slide show of the demonstrations.
U.S.: The lead story on the Tennessee Valley Authority looking to revive a half-built Alabama nuclear power plant is something of a scoop for The Times, and gives a good peg for an update on post-Fukushima nuclear power in the U.S. And an ugly story from Cordova, Alabama, makes public rumors that a black mother and son had been turned away from a church before the deadly tornadoes last month.
Business: The lead feature on new, stylized mannequins provides a good look into some of the subtleties that go along with in-store retail marketing. And the report on an International Energy Agency forecast for an uptick in North and South American oil is worth a read, even if it's not an exclusive.
Technology: A good follow-up on the Citigroup hack attack has word from the bank that more customers than previously thought had their data stolen. And in a great bit of tech reporting borrowed from the World section, Neil MacFaquhar details how social media is fomenting simmering unrest in Saudi Arabia.
Science: The story to read here is on the increase in recent years of deadly weather events, and how scientists can't agree on a shared cause.
Health: Definitely check out the report on a revamped formula for the drug OxyContin, and how those in the habit of abusing the drug continue to pursue their fix.
Sports: It's a big win for Boston as the Bruins take home the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972. But the victory came at a price for Vancouver, where riots overwhelmed the streets after the Canucks' loss.
Opinion: In the lead op-ed, law professor Joanna C. Schwartz makes the case that lawsuits over police misconduct are costing New York City too much, and suggests some solutions to reduce the expenses.
Arts: One has to love these Times interactive arts features, such as this one on the National Gallery in London. It would also be worthwhile to check out the profile of museum philanthropist Alice Walton.
Style: The feature on a newly hip corner of New York's Rockaway Beach is a great read for city dwellers looking for summer fun, and others interested in a peek into New York lifestyle.
