At the new concourse at the Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates, passengers wait to board the Emirates Airbus A380 parked at the gate. Airports in the Middle East are quickly becoming the crossroads of air travel. The hubs of Persian Gulf carriers are in warm climates with little air-travel congestion and cheap, nonunion workers. That means runways never shut down because of snow, planes don’t circle waiting for their turn to land and flights aren’t canceled by labor strikes as they often are in Europe.

Pope Francis sent a special video message to the event in Turin's cathedral, but made no claim that the image on the shroud of a man with wounds similar to those suffered by Christ was really that of Jesus. He called the cloth an "icon," not a relic an important distinction.

That covers a pension, compensation and benefits for office staff, and other costs like travel, office space and postage. Chaffetz, R-Utah, introduced a bill last year that would limit costs to a $200,000 pension, plus another $200,000 that ex-presidents could use at their discretion. And for every dollar that an ex-president earns in excess of $400,000, their annual allowance would be reduced by the same amount. The bill died in committee. (AP Photo/Jim Urquhart, File)
