developing in universities that are in
line with Intel's goals. This year the
trend was e-commerce and e-business.
The University has been a target
school for Intel for a long time, Sali-
nas said. In the past Intel has donated
equipment to labs and they recruit
heavily from the school. This is partly
due to the strength of the programs but
also because of the strong presence of
women and minorities in the pro-
grams, he said.
White is positive about the possi-
bilities for the grant - and the e-
business program itself.
"This will enrich our offerings to
students in this emerging, high
growth area of business," White

the amount given back in the form of
tax breaks and tax cuts. Gore wants to
spend S480 billion on tax breaks for
education, health care, and retirement
savings, while Bush wants to spend
S1.317 trillion on cutting all income
tax rates, eliminating the inheritance
tax and other tax breaks.
In many debates and public appear-
ances, the Vice President has accused
the governor of making tax cuts that
only benefit the wealthiest 1 percent of
the population. Meanwhile, Bush has
said that Gore does not trust people to
handle their own money.
"Al Gore's plan leaves out 50 mil-
lion taxpayers," Bush spokesman Bob
Hopkins said. "Gov. Bush's tax plan
provides tax relief to every taxpayer
with the largest percentage going to
those people at the lowest end of the
Of Gore's plan Polla said, "The
money will go directly to programs
that actually help someone."
Berry said he supported Bush's
plan, because he said it pays down
the national debt, stabilizes social
security and still gives back to the
What the plan is missing, Berry
said, is serious reform of IRS tax
forms. If people would have an easi-
er time filing their taxes, he said.
"That alone would will save huge
amounts of money to go back into
Berry said he thought taxes were the
biggest issue to pop up this week, but
he didn't think that it would be the
make or break issue for the elections.
"Taxes matter to me a great deal,"
he said. "But the environment might
be a bigger issue for young people
because they see their future."

Clinton near deal on tax cut package'
WASHINGTON - After months of open partisan warfare over tax cuts,
President Clinton and congressional Republicans neared agreement yesterday on
a tax relief package that would help people save for retirement, pay for long-term
health care and give businesses breaks to offset the costs of a SI minimum wage
The legislation, expected to cost about S245 billion over 10 years, also woul
provide a host of new tax incentives to revitalize downtrodden communities and
set up a new tax system for U.S. exporters to avert a trade war with the European
Although disagreement remained in some areas, a congenial exchange of let-
ters between Clinton and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-I1l.) made it clear
that both sides expected compromise before Congress adjourns for the year.
"We should also work together to pass tax cuts for middle-class Americads,"
Clinton told reporters at the White House. "You know, in budget talks, the two
sides often wind up talking past each other. It takes a little extra effort to reach
across the divide, so that's what I'm trying to do today."
The tone stood on marked contrast to the politically charged rhetoric sur-
rounding GOP tax cuts such as repeal of the estate tax and relief from the "mar*
riage penalty" tax on two-income couples, both of which the president vetoed
earlier this year.

NRA spends $1M
on Bus campaign
WASH INGTON - The National
Rifle Association spent near SI million
last month on behalf of George W.
Bush's presidential campaign, an effort
that is cutting into Al Gore's support in
The powerful lobby for gun owners'
rights spent S610,610 on radio com-
mercials and S336,216 on billboards in
support of the Texas governor in several
states, according to new Federal Elec-
tion Commission reports.
NRA President Charlton Heston has
held rallies in such battleground states a
Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wiscon-
sin. Heston is scheduled to begin an
eight-state tour Monday.
The NRA's Political Victory Fund
also has endorsed Bush.
"On November 7, Americans will be
casting the most important votes of their
lifetimes - to save the Second Amend-
ment for future generations," the group
said in announcing its endorsement of
the Republican on its Web site.
Gore campaign officials acknowl-
edge that the NRA's efforts have hurt
them, especially among pro-gun union
members in those states, and are trying
to counterattack. Labor leaders said
they have found some success trumping
the NRA by arguing in response that
Gore won't take away their guns but
that Bush will take away their union. _

modified corn not approved for

but also into products being sold

Link, has been found in yet another

AROUND THE WORLD
from Russian sub
MOSCOW - The Russian Navy
commander yesterday raised fresh
doubts about whether divers will be
deployed to try and recover the bodies
of sailors lost in the sunken nuclear
attack submarine Kursk.
Admiral Vladimir Kuroyedov said in
a formal statement that he will cancel
the operation to recover the crew if con-
ditions inside the submarine looks too
hazardous. The mission to dive to the
wrecked submarine is to begin shortly.
A Norwegian floating derrick, the
Regalia, is now making its way toward
the scene of the Aug. 12 disaster and is
expected to arrive there today.
President Vladimir Putin had ordered
that an effort be made to recover the
bodies, but top Russian officials have
given conflicting signals in recent days
about whether the mission will be ful-
filled. Kuroyedov said the Navy felt an
obligation to the memory of the 118
who were killed to try and make an
But he added, in what was seen here
as a strong hint that the mission might
be called off. "We must also think about
the lives of the people who will go
underwater and work at a 104-mete
depth in the complex conditions of th
Barents Sea" The stricken vessel lays at
the seabed at a depth of 354 feet.
WASHINGTON - U.S. officials
got wind of plans for terrorist attacks
on targets in the Persian Gulf states.
Bahrain and Qatar over the weeki'nd
and forces went on high alert, a senior
defense official said yesterday. The
targets included a school in Bahrein
that American and other international
children attend, the official said,
speaking on condition of anonymity.
Other targets included the QS.
embassies in Manama, the Bahrain
capital, and Doha, the capital of Qatar.
