FILE - In this Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 file photo, Egypt’s military chief Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi smiles as he speaks to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during their talks in Moscow, Russia. The election of Egypt's former military chief to the nation's presidency may be remembered for its central irony: He won in a historic landslide - only to shatter his image of invulnerability in the process. El-Sissi's win was never in doubt, but what the retired 59-year-old field marshal wanted was an overwhelming turnout that would accord legitimacy to his July ouster of Egypt's first freely elected president - the Islamist Mohammed Morsi - and show critics at home and abroad that his action reflected the will of the people.

FILE - This April 10, 2014 shows a woman walking past as Steven Paska, 26, center, of Arlington, Va., asks his girlfriend of two years Jessica Deegan, 27, to marry him as cherry blossom trees in peak bloom line the tidal basin with the Jefferson Memorial in the background in Washington. Deegan said yes to the surprise marriage proposal. Society’s actual gender roles are shifting, with women making up more breadwinners than ever before and more likely than men to earn a college degree. But when it comes to dating, Americans’ attitudes toward money and gender roles hew to the traditional and sometimes conflict, according to a new Associated Press-WE tv poll. Seven in 10 in the survey say it’s unacceptable to expect a date to pay for everything, but most say it’s still a man’s job to pay for a first date. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala was the only non-luxury car to earn the highest safety rating in new tests of high-tech crash prevention systems. It earned the top rating even though the government is investigating one driver’s report that the automatic braking system went off several times without warning, eventually causing an accident. Insurance Institute spokesman Russ Rader said the group is aware of the investigation but had no issues when it was testing the Impala. (AP Photo/GM)
