On the eve of a second round of high-level bipartisan talks set for Sunday, Mr. Boehner issued a statement saying he would now urge negotiators to instead focus on trying to craft a smaller package more in line with the $2 trillion in cuts negotiated by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Derek Jeter of the Yankees Gets Hit No. 3,000, a Home Run to Left

Derek Jeter became the 28th player in baseball history to reach 3,000 hits on Saturday, with a home run to left field in the third inning at Yankee Stadium off of David Price of Tampa Bay. In doing so, Jeter became the first player in the Yankees' storied history to reach the hallowed number.
Jeter is the active leader in hits and the first player to collect his 3,000th since Craig Biggio of Houston in 2007. He is also the first to achieve the milestone at Yankee Stadium, old or new, and the fourth youngest player to do it. Only Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron and Robin Yount joined the club at a younger age than Jeter, who turned 37 on June 26.
Jeter accomplished it all without playing anywhere but shortstop, the most physically demanding position on the field besides catcher. Only three other players, Honus Wagner, Cal Ripken Jr. and Yount, have recorded 3,000 hits while playing most of their careers at shortstop.

The launch took off within a few minutes of its scheduled time despite threatening weather and a brief technical delay.

U.S. Economy Added 18,000 Jobs in June; Unemployment Rate Rose to 9.2%

The United States economy added only 18,000 jobs in June, a blow to hopes for a resurgence in hiring, the Department of Labor said on Friday. The unemployment rate rose to 9.2 percent from 9.1 percent in May, the department said.

The increase in nonfarm payrolls came mostly from private companies, which added 57,000 jobs in June, from a revised gain of 73,000 in May, the monthly report said. In general, government agencies have been shedding jobs as they grapple with budget pressures.

Over all, the gain for May was revised downward to 25,000 from the initial report of 54,000.

The report showed the continuing challenges of adding jobs to the economy even at a rate that keeps pace with population growth, two years after the official end of the longest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

2018 Winter Olympics Awarded to Pyeongchang, South Korea

The 2018 Winter Olympics will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the International Olympic Committee announced on Wednesday, awarding the games to the city that finished second in the competitions for the 2010 and 2014 winter games.

South Korea, which has hosted the Summer Olympics once, built its candidacy for 2018 on a proposal to expand winter sports in the lucrative Asian market. Its budget for 2018 was far more extravagant than rival bids — $1.5 billion for the actual Games and $2 billion to $6 billion for infrastructure projects, according to news reports. The winter games have been held twice before in Asia, in 1968 and 1998, both times in Japan.

Pyeongchang won on the first ballot of a secret vote of delegates of the I.O.C., prevailing over Munich and Annecy, France. Voting took place at a general assembly of the organization in Durban, South Africa.

Somali Man Tied to Militants Was Detained Aboard U.S. Navy Ship for Months

A Somali man accused of ties to two Islamist militant groups was captured by the American military in April and interrogated for months aboard a navy ship without being warned of his Miranda rights to remain silent and have a lawyer. On Tuesday, the Obama administration announced that the man had been flown to New York City to face prosecution before a civilian court.

In an indictment unsealed in the Southern District of New York, Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame was charged with nine counts related to accusations that he provided support to the Somalia-based Al Shabaab and the Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Mr. Warsame was captured on April 19, and a plane carrying him arrived in New York City around midnight Monday night, officials said.

Obama Calls Congressional Leaders to White House Thursday for Deficit Talks

President Obama on Tuesday invited the Congressional leadership from both parties to the White House on Thursday, saying that "greater progress is in sight" on a deal to raise the nation's debt limit and reduce the deficit.

Mr. Obama continued to insist that a final deal include a "balanced approach" that would include tax increases on wealthy individuals as well as trillions of dollars in spending cuts.

But he urged that all sides in the discussions on Thursday should "leave their ultimatums at the door" and he sounded an optimistic tone about the likelihood that an acceptable deal could be reached in the next two weeks.

Djokovic Outmuscles Nadal to Win Men's Final at Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic of Serbia won the 2011 men's title at Wimbledon on Sunday, beating the defending champion, Rafael Nadal, in four sets.

Djokovic won the first two sets, 6-4 and 6-1; lost the third set, 1-6; and then took the fourth set, 6-3.

It was Nadal's first defeat at the All England Club in four years.

Until today, Djokovic, 24, who will become the new No. 1 on the ATP World Tour, had not beaten Nadal, a 25-year-old Spaniard, in a Grand Slam tournament. He had, however, beaten Nadal in all four of their previous meetings this year.

On Saturday, Petra Kvitova won her first Grand Slam title by beating Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-4 in the women's final.

Petra Kvitova Upsets Maria Sharapova to Win Wimbledon Title

Petra Kvitova, the 24-year-old Czech, beat Maria Sharapova, the one-time Wimbledon champion, 6-3, 6-4, to win her first ever Grand Slam title.

Kvitova, the eighth-seed, made short work of her Russian rival, taking less than two hours to beat Sharapova, who spent the entire match scrambling to catch up.

Kvitova was playing in her first major final, but it was three-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova that showed her nerves. The 2004 Wimbledon champion double-faulted six times, including twice to get broken to 4-2 in the first set.

On Sunday, Rafael Nadal of Spain will meet Novak Djokovic of Serbia for the men's title.

For Strauss-Kahn Prosecutors, Accuser's Phone Call Was Alarming Revelation

A series of troubling statements, fabrications and associations unraveled the case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn and upended prosecutors' view of the hotel housekeeper at the center of the ordeal.

In the latest revelation, investigators with the Manhattan district attorney's office finished translating a recording of a phone call between the housekeeper and a boyfriend in an immigration jail in Arizona.

"She says words to the effect of, 'Don't worry, this guy has a lot of money. I know what I'm doing,' " a well-placed law enforcement official said.

Weeklong Rally Lifts Dow Index by 5.4%

American stock markets wrapped up one of their strongest weeks in two years with further gains on Friday, erasing their losses from earlier in June. An unexpected upturn in manufacturing and easing of concerns about a public-debt default in Greece were the driving forces.

The Dow industrials closed on Friday at 12,582.77, a gain of 1.36 percent for the day and 5.4 percent for the week, in preliminary figures. The broader S.&P. 500 did even better, gaining 1.44 percent on Friday and 6 percent for the week.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released from house arrest on Friday as the sexual assault case against him moved one step closer to dismissal after prosecutors told a Manhattan judge that they had serious problems with the case.

Prosecutors acknowledged that there were significant credibility issues with the hotel housekeeper who accused Mr. Strauss-Kahn of trying to rape her in May. He was released on his own recognizance.

Strauss-Kahn Case Seen as in Jeopardy

The sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn is on the verge of collapse as investigators have uncovered major holes in the credibility of the housekeeper who charged that she was attacked by the French politician in his Manhattan hotel suite in May, according to two well-placed law enforcement officials.

Although forensic tests found unambiguous evidence of a sexual encounter between Mr. Strauss-Kahn and the woman, prosecutors do not believe much of what the accuser has told them about the circumstances or about herself.

Since her initial allegation on May 14, the accuser has repeatedly lied, one of the law enforcement officials said.

About two weeks after celebrating an electric championship series and a revitalizing season, the N.B.A. is shutting down — perhaps for a very long time.

Negotiators for the owners and the players union made a final attempt to broker a new labor deal Thursday afternoon, but they separated without an agreement and without much hope of bridging a gap of several billion dollars.

Cuomo Will Seek to Lift Ban on Hydraulic Fracturing

The Cuomo administration is expected to lift what has been, in effect, a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, a controversial technology used to extract natural gas from shale, people briefed on the administration's discussions said.

Administration officials are discussing maintaining a ban on the process inside New York City's sprawling upstate watershed, as well as a watershed used by the city of Syracuse, according to people briefed on the plan. But by allowing the process in other parts of the state, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo would open up New York to one of the fastest-growing — critics would say reckless — areas of the energy industry.
