MOSCOW - The Kremlin said Thursday that an adoption deal with the United States will remain valid until 2014 despite a new Russian law banning the practice, but it's unclear whether it would keep the door open for more adoptions or allow the completion of adoptions that were under way before the ban was passed. Last month, President Vladimir V. Putin signed a law banning Americans from adopting Russian children, part of a harsh response to a U.S. law targeting Russians deemed to be violating human rights.

NHL owners will gather in New York on Wednesday to vote on the tentative labor agreement reached with the union last weekend. If a majority approves, as expected, the NHL will move one step closer toward the official end of the lockout. A majority of the 700 players also must approve the deal for hockey to return to the ice. A 48-game regular season would then be expected to begin Jan. 19. The NHL has yet to release a schedule.

At 5:30 Sunday morning, Flyers winger Scott Hartnell texted the good news to his teammates. "Deal done, boys. " When Jody Shelley read Hartnell's text that the NHL's 113-day labor dispute had ended, he did a double take. "I didn't know whether to believe him," Shelley, the Flyers' enforcer, said Sunday afternoon. "I was like, 'Yeah, right.' And then I did a little research on Twitter, and it was blowing up. " Hartnell wasn't fibbing. The NHL and the players' union reached a tentative agreement at around 5 a.m. on a 10-year collective bargaining agreement, putting an end to a work stoppage that lasted almost four months.

Cathedral Village, a retirement community in Philadelphia's Andorra section, last month reached what experts called a "unique" agreement with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Philadelphia to enhance care in its nursing home, especially for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. The joint agreement grew out of complaints by Barry Vernick, whose wife, suffering from Parkinson's disease and dementia, died following a brief stay at Cathedral Village in late 2008. The agreement mentions no allegations of wrongdoing by the nonprofit Cathedral Village.
