Villanova freshman center Mouphtaou Yarou was cleared yesterday to resume practice with the Wildcats, and coach Jay Wright said there was an outside chance that Yarou would be able to play in the team's Big East Conference opener tomorrow at Marquette. Eighth-ranked Villanova went 11-1 in the nonconference portion of its schedule. The 6-foot-10 Yarou has missed 10 games since being diagnosed with Hepatitis B on Dec. 1. At the time, it was feared that Yarou, from Benin in West Africa, would have to miss the remainder of the season.

Quarterback Steve Young of the San Francisco 49ers has been given medical clearance to continue playing, although the team hasn't said whether he will start Sunday's game against New Orleans. Young suffered a concussion in the first series of the 49ers' season-opening 13-6 loss to Tampa Bay on Aug. 31 when he was sacked by Warren Sapp and kneed in the head by Hardy Nickerson. Young, who has suffered three concussions in the last two seasons, sat out last week's 15-12 win over the St. Louis Rams while rookie quarterback Jim Druckenmiller made his first NFL start.

Former CIA Director John Deutch declined yesterday to testify this week before the Senate Intelligence Committee on his mishandling of classified materials. The panel has asked Deutch to testify in a closed session tomorrow about why he stored memos to President Clinton, details of covert operations, and other classified documents on unsecured home computers when he headed the CIA from 1995 to 1996. The computers were used to access the Internet, raising concerns that the data they contained could have been stolen by skilled hackers.

NEW YORK - The U.S. government monitors threats to national security with the help of nearly 500,000 people like Edward Snowden - employees of private firms who have access to the government's most sensitive secrets. When Snowden, an employee of one of those firms, Booz Allen Hamilton, revealed details of two National Security Agency surveillance programs, he spotlighted the risks of making so many employees of private contractors a key part of the U.S. intelligence apparatus. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, called Snowden's leak "gut wrenching.

WASHINGTON - Three more Secret Service employees have been forced out of the government, bringing to nine the number of people who have lost their jobs in the prostitution scandal roiling the agency. Two employees have resigned and a third is having his national-security clearance revoked, the Secret Service said Tuesday. The employee whose clearance is being revoked can appeal the decision. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said one of the resigning agents stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Cartagena, Colombia, where Obama stayed for the Summit of Americas.

If the message delivered at the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission's just-concluded two-day seminar on rail freight issues were reduced to three words, they would be: "double-stack clearance. " To hear speakers at the seminar tell it, if Pennsylvania doesn't soon provide this double-stack clearance, it can kiss goodbye many businesses, manufacturing jobs, and any possible future for the Port of Philadelphia. And what is double-stack clearance? It refers to enlarging tunnels and raising the height of bridges so extra-wide loads, three-tier automobile carriers and, most especially, flatcars carrying new, double-decker-style cargo containers, can pass through and under them.

Half a century after Congress passed landmark civil-rights legislation, how far should the federal government go to protect the hard-won voting rights of once-disenfranchised minorities? That's the question before the U.S. Supreme Court after Wednesday's arguments on the latest challenge to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. While times have changed, the court should heed the continued need for voting protections. The justices are considering a challenge to the section of the law that requires certain voting districts to get clearance from the U.S. Justice Department before they can change election rules or procedures.

When the 1989 scholastic football season begins this month, veteran coach Joe Corbi will be back on the sidelines at Deptford High School. Only two months ago, that seemed unlikely. Corbi missed most of the 1988-89 school year because of injuries he suffered in an incident after Deptford's Thanksgiving Day football game against Washington Township. Corbi, who was injured when he attempted to break up a fight among a group of fans, suffered brachial nerve damage and lost 10 percent of the vision in his right eye. But on Aug. 2, Corbi received clearance to teach and coach, and after a nine-month leave of absence and a lengthy rehabilitation, he is returning for his 28th year of coaching football, and his 21st as a head coach.

A model of endoscope that has been linked to outbreaks of deadly, drug-resistant bacteria at hospitals in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and elsewhere was on the market for years without clearance, the Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday.

Also Wednesday, a second Los Angeles hospital reported that four patients had tested positive for this type of "superbug" bacteria after being treated with a duodenoscope.

LeSean McCoy has not yet been cleared by an independent neurologist, which is all that remains in the way of the Pro Bowl running back returning to action after missing four games with a concussion. McCoy will practice with the Eagles on Monday. If he's free of symptoms, he will undergo an examination on Tuesday so he can be cleared to play. "Right now, LeSean is not ready to go," coach Andy Reid said. "I would play LeSean when he is ready to go. " That does not mean that Reid will stop playing Bryce Brown, the fumble-prone rookie who rushed for 34 yards on 16 carries in Thursday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

KABUL, Afghanistan - Expressing public and private frustration with Pakistan, the Obama administration has unleashed the CIA to resume an aggressive campaign of drone strikes in Pakistani territory over the last few weeks, approving strikes that might have been vetoed in the past for fear of angering Islamabad. Now, said a senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity in discussing sensitive issues, the administration's attitude is, "What do we have to lose?" Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta made clear the deteriorating relations with Islamabad on Thursday, saying the United States is "reaching the limits of our patience" because Pakistan has not cracked down on local insurgents who attack U.S. troops and others in neighboring Afghanistan.
