Rawleigh Warner, 92, the Mobil Oil Corp. chairman and chief executive officer who took corporate-image management to a new level through company sponsorship of public TV's Masterpiece Theater and paid opinion pieces that appeared in U.S. newspapers, died Wednesday in Hobe Sound, Fla., of complications from a progressive muscle disease, a New York Times obituary said. As chairman and CEO from 1969 to 1986, and president from 1965 to 1969, the finance-minded Mr. Warner led Mobil, then based in New York, as it overtook rivals to become second in sales behind Exxon Corp., years before the two companies merged.

JOHN RUSSEL is hopeless as a handyman. The first time he tried to use a table saw he inherited from his father, he cut off a finger. But John had a secret weapon: his brother. After moving to Los Angeles, John would have to cope with the problems every homeowner has to face. When a problem was defeating him, he called his brother back in Secane, Delaware County. His brother, Frank Ross "Beansie" Russel, was an amazing handyman. He could fix anything - and enjoy doing it. "I would call him up about something that was broken that was frustrating me," John said, "and he would say, 'John, calm down, we have the technology.' " Frank Russel died Monday of cancer.

The work makes clearer who does and does not benefit from taking supplements of the good oils found in fish such as salmon, tuna, and sardines.

WASHINGTON - Iraq's northern Kurdish region is pressing the Obama administration to remain neutral in a dispute with the central government over whether it can export oil and gas without Baghdad's approval.

The U.S. opposition to the Kurds' energy deals has put it at odds with NATO ally Turkey amid concerns that the dispute over dividing Iraq's energy wealth could threaten that country's stability.
