WASHINGTON - The House on Friday approved the second in a series of bills to limit the president's authority to regulate business, which Republicans said was necessary for job creation and which Democrats called a political power grab. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R., Ohio), who said the package was a top priority, will have difficulty winning final passage of the bill, which the White House has threatened to veto. Still, Republicans said the votes would highlight the government's role in regulating business, which they have made a major campaign issue.

Are any package tours planned for the 1990 World Cup soccer championships in Italy? Is it possible to get individual game tickets? The Italian organizing committee is keeping a tight lock on promotional activities and tour packages, and the only way you are likely to obtain tickets is through one of the few officially delegated agencies, and then only as part of a package. Watching the playoffs may be no easy matter, since soccer fans who want to see more than one of their favorite teams may have to travel to more than one city.

Philadelphia authorities late last night shut down two blocks of South Broad Street to allow the bomb squad and a hazardous-material team to examine a mysterious white powder found inside a package that had been mailed to U.S. Rep. Bob Brady's South Philadelphia district office. The two blocks on either side of the Democratic congressman's office at 1907 S. Broad were closed as a precaution shortly after 10 p.m. and remained closed early this morning. Authorities said the powder was in a package that had arrived at Brady's district office Friday.

The $60,000 benefits package that would go to Upper Darby's 11 council members under a home rule charter amendment is merely a restoration of benefits taken away four years ago, according to township solicitor Alvin S. Ackerman. Ackerman made the comment to about 15 people Thursday night at a hearing on 12 proposed charter changes, which will go before the voters as a referendum in the April 26 primary election. All of the six township residents who addressed the commission expressed concern about the change that would grant the council members pension, and health- and life-insurance benefits on a par with the township's chief administrative officer, F. Raymond Shay.

The arrival at the University of Pennsylvania of more than $1 million worth of cocaine in hollowed-out books leads police to believe they are dealing with an established operation, law enforcement sources said. A police source said a shipment of nearly five pounds of cocaine indicates "this was not the first shipment. " The source said cocaine suppliers shipping goods through the mail probably would not send such a large stash on the first mailing. "You build up to that amount," he said, "once you realize that it's getting through OK. " The source speculated that someone put up a substantial down payment for the 2.2 kilograms found Friday.

German duo: A Volkswagen sedan and a hatchback, sporting vastly different turbocharged engines, go head to head. This week: 2015 VW Jetta 1.8T SE. Price: $26,160 as tested. (The 1.8T SE started at $23,650, and added $995 for fog lights and $695 for the safety package.) Marketer's pitch: "More. With an extra helping of more. " Conventional wisdom: Edmunds.com liked the "spacious interior and trunk; good fuel economy and performance from turbocharged engines and available Jetta Hybrid," but not the "weak, inefficient base engine; high price of hybrid and diesel-powered TDI; middling handling and steering capabilities; mediocre touchscreen displays.

Chris and Jillian Soriano bought and then renovated their Haddon Heights house using a Fannie Mae HomeStyle Renovation loan to finance the improvements. The couple moved into the four-bedroom, two-bathroom house last summer "knowing we were going to rip out the kitchen," said Jillian Soriano, who wanted an open-concept cooking and dining area. "I wanted to take down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room and replace it with a butcher-block island with two sets of seating," she said.

Who's responsible when a delivery goes awry? That's been an issue for some luckless consumers at least since the days when Sears, Roebuck & Co. pioneered mail order a century ago, and likely for clients of the Pony Express before that. Recently, it has gained urgency from the growth of delivery-dependent Internet commerce. One day, it may even be an issue when Amazon's drones target the wrong front stoop for a package drop. The key thing to remember is that delivery systems endure because, almost always, they work as promised.

The Subaru BRZ - for those of you who have been trapped in a cave in British Columbia since before the car's debut as a 2013 model - is a small sports coupe as affordable as it is handsome and athletic. It sprang from a joint venture with Toyota, which offers a fraternal twin called the Scion FR-S. With the BRZ now in its third model year, Subaru decided that some tweaks were in order, notably a suspension revision designed to make that sports car's undercarriage handle the bumps a little better.

PARIS - On Avenue Montaigne, the heart of this city's fashion district, sits the Hotel Athénée, where rooms start at $1,820 a night. On this particular sun-laved September afternoon, there was a Bugatti Veyron parked in front of the hotel entrance. The Bugatti is the fastest, most powerful production car on Earth. When equipped with the 1,200-horsepower, 16-cylinder engine, it will top 250 m.p.h. - and $2 million. Parked nearby were five chauffeurs in white shirts and black German sedans, awaiting the return of their employers.

DeMECO RYANS played 1,189 snaps last season, which was the most by any Eagles defensive player, and also the most of any linebacker in the NFL. If you're expecting him to complain about being overworked, if you're expecting him to request some relief, fuhgeddaboudit. Ryans wears those 1,189 snaps like a badge of honor; they are a testament to his relentlessness and warrior mentality. He'd rather play 200 more snaps this season than one fewer. Which is why he got this sour look on his face yesterday after practice when I asked him for his feelings on the six-defensive-back "dime" package that the Eagles will use this season against certain multiple-receiver personnel looks.
