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.
The home page's lead story today sheds some light on why Saudi Arabia hasn't experienced an Arab Spring uprising of its own (hint: It's rich). And in Yemen, a secret U.S. air campaign intensifies. Today's must-read, though, is the science-fiction-like report on a new Russian ATM with voice recognition to tell when you're lying.
World: For more on what's happening in Yemen, check out Robert Worth's coverage of the political doings there. There's a great feature on India's growing pains, including some video worth a look. And in an interesting wrinkle from Japan, radiation-hit Fukushima has become a destination for job-seekers, despite the nuclear danger.
U.S.: Don't miss the main feature, on Cate Edwards and her functional role in a dysfunctional family. And while it's not an exclusive (see the L.A. Times), the coverage of homeless veterans' lawsuit against the Veterans' Administration is worth checking out.
New York: The story detailing Rep. Anthony Weiner's pursuit of his online admirers is funny in its salaciousness, conveyed by The Times' reserved language.
Business: Check out the feature on hedge funds getting into the loan game as banks continue to play it safe. And Dealbook has good coverage of the emerging story about Citigroup's electronic security breach.
Technology: The story about the Russian ATM with a built-in lie detector is fascinating and a must-read. Also, the news on Nokia's chief technology officer departing, while available elsewhere, is still fresh and worth a click.
Health: While there is a lot of disparate coverage out there on the German E. coli outbreak, the story about the difficulty in tracking the source does get to the heart of the matter. And in an interesting story borrowed from business, we get news that Pfizer has halted sales of an arsenic-laced drug for chickens.
Opinion: In the lead op-ed, Matthew Slaughter and Robert Lawrence argue that the American worker is caught in the middle of political dealings around free trade and domestic benefits.
Style: With summer here, Henry Alford has a great story on the problems men face in buying flattering swim trunks.
