A convicted felon who had been deported five times from the United States to Mexico pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to first degree murder in a San Francisco shooting that has spawned passionate debate about the city's immigration policies. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, 45, was charged with murder on Monday for last week's apparently random shooting of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle.

India IT outsourcing firms seek booster shot from Obamacare
By Nivedita Bhattacharjee MUMBAI (Reuters) - India's IT outsourcing firms are betting on U.S. President Barack Obama's healthcare reform to rev up revenue growth which is slowing as the $146 billion industry's key financial and manufacturing clients spend less on software services. The United States is the biggest market for the outsourcing industry, which is dominated by Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, Infosys Ltd and Wipro Ltd. It also accounts for 90 percent of all healthcare related contracts, which researchers Everest Group expect to more than double to about $68 billion in 2020 from nearly $31 billion two years ago, largely due to "Obamacare". "In terms of technology maturity, other sectors like manufacturing, banking, are a lot more mature than healthcare," said Rajib Bhattacharya, head of a healthcare software unit that India's fifth largest outsourcing firm Tech Mahindra Ltd set up last month.
New York City police and teenagers from some of the city's toughest neighborhoods came together on Tuesday at Harlem's historic Apollo Theater for an event designed to build mutual respect and improve their frayed relationship.

The program, Operation Conversation: Cops and Kids, is aimed at improving communication and trust between police and teenagers in New York's low income neighborhoods after years of tension over policing tactics, like the controversial stop-and-frisk policy, and the killing of unarmed black men by white police officers across the country.
