Putin Calls Events in Ukraine an ‘Unconstitutional Coup’
As Secretary of State John Kerry headed for embattled Kiev to meet with Ukraine’s fledgling leadership, President Vladimir V. Putin on Tuesday described the crisis there as the result of an “unconstitutional coup,” throwing his support behind ousted President Viktor F. Yanukovych and reserving the right to use force as “a last resort,” news reports said.
In televised remarks reported by Reuters, Mr. Putin also said there was no need to use force at the moment in Crimea, Ukraine’s southern region on the Black Sea where Russian troops and naval vessels have encircled Ukrainian military facilities, saying they were protecting ethnic Russians.
Mr. Putin’s remarks came after declared the scheduled end of a surprise military exercise he ordered in western Russia near Ukraine’s border last week, telling military units that participated to return to their permanent garrisons.

Ukraine Mobilizes Reserve Troops
Russia’s move to seize control of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula on Saturday led Ukraine to call up its military reserves on Sunday and warn Moscow against further incursions as Western powers scrambled to find a response to the crisis.
A day after the Russian Parliament granted President Vladimir V. Putin broad authority to use military force in response to the political upheaval in Ukraine that dislodged a Kremlin ally and installed a new, staunchly pro-Western government, the Ukrainian government in Kiev threatened war if Russia sent troops further into Ukraine.

Ukraine’s President Flees Palace as Protesters Widen Control
An opposition unit took control of the presidential palace outside Kiev on Saturday, as leaders in Parliament said Ukraine’s president, Viktor F. Yanukovych, had fled the capital a day after a deal was reached aimed at ending the country’s spiral of violence.
Members of an opposition group from Lviv called the 31st Hundred — carrying clubs and some of them wearing masks — were in control of the entryways to the palace Saturday morning. And Vitali Klitschko, one of three opposition leaders who signed the deal to end the violence, said that Mr. Yanukovych had “left the capital” but his whereabouts were unknown, with members of the opposition speculating that he had gone to Kharkiv, in the northeast part of Ukraine.
Protesters claimed to have established control over Kiev. By Saturday morning they had secured key intersections of the city and the government district of the capital, which police officers had fled, leaving behind burned military trucks, mattresses and heaps of garbage at the positions they had occupied for months.

Senate Fails to Extend Benefits for Long-Term Unemployed
The Senate failed to move forward on a three-month extension of assistance for the long-term unemployed on Thursday, leaving it unlikely that Congress would approve the measure soon and dealing a setback to President Obama’s economic agenda.
The cloture vote was 58-to-40, falling short of the 60-vote threshold to break a Republican filibuster effort.

Senate Passes $1 Trillion Farm Bill Agreement
The Senate on Tuesday passed the long-awaited farm bill, ending two years of partisan rancor and stalled negotiations and clearing what is expected to be the last hurdle for the nearly $1 trillion spending measure.
The bill was passed with strong bipartisan support, 68 to 32. The legislation now heads to the desk of President Obama, who is expected to sign it.
The nearly 1,000-page bill reauthorizes hundreds of programs for agriculture, dairy production, conservation, nutrition and international food aid.

Obama to Call for Overhaul of N.S.A.’s Phone Data Collection Program
President Obama will require intelligence agencies to obtain permission from a secret court before tapping into a vast database of telephone data, but he will leave the data in the hands of the government for now, an administration official said.
Mr. Obama, in a much-anticipated speech on Friday morning, plans to pull back the government’s wide net of surveillance at home and abroad, staking out a middle ground between the far-reaching proposals of his own advisers and the concerns of the nation’s intelligence agencies.
At the heart of the changes, spurred by the disclosure of surveillance practices by a former National Security Agency contractor, Edward J. Snowden, will be an overhaul of a bulk data collection program that has swept up many millions of records of Americans’ telephone calls, though not their content.

U.S. Economy Added 74,000 Jobs in December, Below Expectations: NYT | Breaking News January 10, 2014.

U.S. Economy Added 74,000 Jobs in December, Below Expectations
The American economy added just 74,000 jobs in December, well below analyst expectations, even as the unemployment rate dropped to 6.7 percent.
The latest data from the Labor Department suggests that the economy lost some momentum as the year drew to a close. But the gains for November were revised up significantly.
The payroll gain in December was much slower than the pace of job creation in the previous three months, when the economy added roughly 200,000 jobs per months. Economists polled by Bloomberg had estimated the economy would add the same in December, with the unemployment rate expected to be flat at 7 percent.

U.S. Flies B-52s Through China’s Expanded Air Defense Zone
Two long-range American bombers have conducted what Pentagon officials described Tuesday as a routine training mission through international air space recently claimed by China as its “air defense identification zone.”
The Chinese government said Saturday that it has the right to identify, monitor and possibly take military action against aircraft that enter the area, which includes sea and islands also claimed by Japan. The claim threatens to escalate an already tense dispute over some of the maritime territory.
American officials said the pair of B-52s carried out a mission that had been planned long in advance of the Chinese announcement this past weekend, and that the United States military would continue to assert its right to fly through what it regards as international air space.

F.D.A. Seeks Tighter Control on Prescriptions for Class of Painkillers
The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday recommended tighter controls on how doctors prescribe the most commonly used narcotic painkillers.
The move, which represents a major policy shift, follows a decade-long debate over whether the widely abused drugs, which contain the narcotic hydrocodone, should be controlled as tightly as more powerful painkillers such as OxyContin.
The drugs at issue contain a combination of hydrocodone and an over-the-counter painkiller like acetaminophen or aspirin and are sold either as generics or under brand names like Vicodin or Lortab. Doctors use the medications to treat pain from injuries, arthritis, dental extractions and other problems.
