South Carolina hit by torrential rainfall, eight dead

A car is stalled due to heavy rains, along flooded US 17 in GeorgetownBy Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Torrential rainfall that South Carolina's governor called a once-in-a-millennium downpour triggered flooding in the southeastern U.S. state on Sunday, causing at least eight deaths in the Carolinas. The storm had dumped more than 20 inches (50 cm) of rain in parts of central South Carolina since Friday, the National Weather Service said. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said parts of the state were hit with rainfall that would be expected to occur once in 1,000 years, with the Congaree River at its highest level since 1936.

There was no sighting of the El Faro or any lifeboats, Tim Nolan, president of ship's owner Tote Maritime Puerto Rico, said in a statement.

Gunman in Oregon college massacre committed suicide

Heidi Wickersham comforts her sister Gwendoline during a candlelight vigil for victims of the Umpqua Community College shooting in WinstonBy Courtney Sherwood and Emily Flitter ROSEBURG, Ore. (Reuters) - The gunman who killed his English professor and eight others at an Oregon community college committed suicide after a shootout with police who arrived within five minutes and exchanged fire with him almost immediately, authorities said. Investigators had previously said the 26-year-old shooter was killed by the officers who raced to the rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, which ranks as the deadliest among dozens of U.S. mass shootings in the past two years. Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told a news conference on Saturday the state medical examiner had determined that the gunman, Christopher Harper-Mercer, took his own life.

Brees, Saints pass Cowboys on second play of overtime

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints(The Sports Exchange) - According to local lore, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is built over an old voodoo pit, and for the first 60 minutes against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, it looked as though the New Orleans Saints were sticking pins all over their bodies. When Saints kicker Zach Hocker clanged what would have been a game-winning 30-yard field goal off the left upright with 12 seconds left in regulation -- a glorified extra point -- the Saints and Cowboys headed to overtime tied at 20. On the second play of overtime, Brees calmly connected with running back C.J. Spiller on a wheel route down the right sideline, and Spiller used his power to shake off a diving tackle attempt by safety Barry Church and his speed to race 80 yards for the game-winning touchdown and a 26-20 overtime victory.

Floundering kickers under spotlight after new rules

NFL: Houston Texans at Carolina Panthers(Reuters) - The task of a kicker in the National Football League (NFL) has become considerably more challenging this season, and the floundering early results have affected game outcomes and job security. When the NFL implemented a rule change in advance of this season that added 13 additional yards to an extra point attempt, it vowed to add excitement to a routine act. What the league may not have anticipated is that kickers would so routinely crack under the added pressure of a 33-yard boot.

Asia stocks gain as U.S. jobs data dampen prospects of Fed rate hike

A pedestrian is reflected on a an electronic board showing the Japan's Nikkei average and other market indices including the exchange rate between the Japanese yen against the U.S. dollar at a brokerage in TokyoBy Shinichi Saoshiro TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian stocks rose on Monday as expectations for a U.S. interest rate hike this year faded after weaker-than-expected employment data. U.S. stock indexes jumped over 1 percent on Friday as worries about the economy after the disappointing jobs report gave way to a robust rally in energy and materials stocks. "Risk aversion weakened today as the weak U.S. employment data supported expectations that the Fed would put off the timing of rate hikes," said Kim Young-jun, a stock analyst at SK Securities in Seoul.

Despite 'weak' jobs report, Fed's Rosengren still sees 2015 rate hike

The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's President and CEO Eric S. Rosengren speaks during the "Hyman P. Minsky Conference on the State of the U.S. and World Economies", in New YorkEric Rosengren still expects the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this year despite what the head of the Boston Fed called a "weak" September jobs report, which could signal a more significant economic slowdown that delays the policy tightening. In a Reuters interview, Rosengren said the slowdown in hiring last month effectively heightens his sensitivity to the economy's performance the rest of the year. If it grows at less than a 2-percent pace, or if unemployment rises from 5.1 percent now, he would probably prefer to wait until next year for the much-anticipated rate hike.

Bernanke: More execs should have faced prosecution for 2008 crisis - USA Today

Ben Bernanke appears at Brookings Institution in WashingtonFormer Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said in a newspaper interview published on Sunday that more corporate executives should have been prosecuted for their actions leading up to the 2008 financial crisis. Bernanke told USA Today that the U.S. Justice Department and other law enforcement agencies focused on investigating or indicting financial firms. "But it would have been my preference to have more investigation of individual action, since obviously everything that went wrong or was illegal was done by some individual, not by an abstract firm," Bernanke was quoted as saying.
