Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants celebrates after hitting a two-run single in the sixth inning against the Kansas City Royals, during Game Four of the World Series, at AT&T Park in San Francisco, California, on October 25, 2014The San Francisco Giants piled up runs relentlessly in an 11-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday to level the 110th World Series at two games apiece. With the win, the Giants gained some much-needed breathing room, ensuring that Major League Baseball's best-of-seven championship showcase will return to Kansas City for game six on Tuesday. Before then, the Giants will have a chance to regain the Series lead at home when they host game five on Sunday. The Royals, back in the post-season for the first time since they won their only World Series crown in 1985, had won two games straight to put the Giants under pressure.

Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen speaks at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston October 17, 2014 in Boston, MassachusettsThe US Federal Reserve is likely to make a final push into the post-crisis era this week with a decision to finally wind up its six-year-old economic stimulus operations. A few worrisome clouds over the global economy might be expected to give Fed Chair Janet Yellen's Federal Open Market Committee pause when they meet on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Fed is currently adding $15 billion in cheap funds to the economy per month under QE, down from $85 billion last December. Injecting tens of billions of dollars each month into the economy to repress longer term interest rates has had less and less real impact, while generating what some worry are fresh bubbles in stock markets.

On Sunday, Tunisians will vote for their first five-year parliament since they overthrew dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, marking the end of the democratic transition that they alone among the pro-democracy Arab Spring uprisings have managed to achieve. Now, many Tunisians are expressing disillusionment over democracy. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Tunisians were lining up to vote early in the morning to choose their first five-year parliament since they overthrew their dictator in the 2011 revolution that kicked off the Arab Spring.
