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 leads with a report from Barack Obama's address on jobs, in which he called on Congress to pass a $447 billion package of tax cuts and new spending designed to stimulate more employment in the United States. Also high on the page, a moving feature portrays a New Jersey high school football team still dealing with the loss of four of its players in a car crash last month. And we're quite enjoying the On the Runway blog, about fashion week and the reporters who cover it.

World: The stories to read here are the smaller features lower down on the page, such as the Sukhumi Journal report on competitive domino players in Georgia. Also check out the news from London, where a new report details British detainee abuses in Iraq.

U.S.: The lead story, on a data breach at a Stanford hospital, might be better read at one of the local papers, such s the San Jose Mercury News. Rather, check out the report on a 9/11-related bomb threat in Washington, D.C. and New York. Also, a report from a secluded Malibu beach seems odd, and worth a read, in that filmmakers have only just now discovered the Hollywood-adjacent spot.

Business: Don't miss the lead report, from DealBook, on a possible settlement at hand for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the federally backed lenders being investigated by the Securities Exchange Commission. And a report from Ben Bernanke's address on Thursday details the Fed chief's frustration with consumers hesitant to spend.

Technology: The lead story is quite fascinating, on Google's defense of its electricity use. And the latest from the tax battle between Amazon and California is that there may not be a definitive conclusion on the issue.

Sports: The U.S. Open continues to struggle, as its reopening after a rain delay has brought annoyed fans and players. And the report on Ohio State's president disparaging the "Little Sisters of the Poor" is pretty funny, as the remark has actually brought attention to a religious order of that same name.

Opinion: In the lead op-ed, Temple University history professor Ann Thompson argues that we should pay more attention to the inmate uprising at Attica prison, which happened 40 years ago.

Arts: Definitely check out the review of a show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, all about dissident Chinese art from the 17th Century.

Style: Even if you're not a fashionista, you should keep tabs on New York's Fashion Week with the On the Runway blog, where Cathy Horyn provides some clever insights.
