FILE - This 2002 file photo provided by the National Park Service shows the launch key mechanism at the deactivated Delta Nine Launch Facility near Wall, S.D. Failings exposed last spring at an Air Force nuclear missile base, described by one officer as “rot” in the ranks, were even worse than originally reported, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. All the staff involved with missile operation at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., passed an inspection with a “marginal” rating, the equivalent of a D in school - and that was only because of good marks received by people like cooks or facilities managers. The men and women entrusted with launch keys to 150 Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles would have flunked. (AP Photo/Minuteman Missile NHS)

FILE -- In this file photo taken April 4, 2013, marijuana plant starts are seen at a growing facility in Seattle. One of the U.S. Justice Department's top concerns in allowing Washington and Colorado to move forward with plans to legalize and tax marijuana sales is seeing that the states keep criminals out of the industry. But the DOJ itself is refusing to let Washington run national background checks on those applying to run legal pot businesses, The Associated Press has learned, and those who have received the first legal pot licenses have done so without going through a national background check.

Freshman Lydia Collins, 19, looks out from her dorm building at Tufts University in Medford, Mass., Thursday, March 13, 2014. Collins took a year after high school and worked in Ecuador through Global Citizen. Tufts is starting its own program, hoping to remove the financial barriers that keep cash-strapped students from taking a year off after high school to travel or volunteer, and thereby offer an opportunity now typically only available to more affluent students to explore different communities and challenge their comfort zones before starting college. This “gap year” program launching this fall will pay for housing, airfare and even visa fees, which can add up to $30,000 or more. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)

FILE - Former British Labour party politician Tony Benn poses for a portrait during a rally in Hyde Park, London, in this Saturday Sept. 24, 2005 file photo. Benn, a committed British socialist who irritated, fascinated - and bored - Britons through a political career spanning more than five decades and who renounced his aristocratic title rather than leave the House of Commons, has died. He was 88. His family said in a statement that Benn died peacefully at his home in west London on Friday. It did not give a cause for death. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham, File)
