Washington (AFP) - Google unveiled plans Friday for a new campus headquarters integrating wildlife and sweeping waterways, aiming to make a big statement in Silicon Valley -- which is already seeing ambitious projects from Apple and Facebook.

The redesign on the Google property in Mountain View, California, by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and London-based Thomas Heatherwick, was submitted to local officials Friday, with details released on the company's official blog.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With the clock ticking toward a midnight Friday deadline to avoid a partial shutdown of the U.S. domestic security agency, the Senate is moving toward passing a funding bill but the House of Representatives leader offered no hints of following suit.

The Republican-dominated House has passed a $39.7 billion bill to pay for Department of Homeland Security operations, but that measure blocks funding for Democratic President Barack Obama's executive order last year lifting the threat of deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants.

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday adopted sweeping new regulations sought by President Obama for how Americans use and do business on the Internet, in a party-line vote that is sure to be challenged by the broadband industry.

Washington — Jeb Bush has set up a killer fundraising operation, likely to dwarf anything the rest of the prospective Republican presidential field can do.

But that won’t guarantee him the 2016 GOP nomination. Mr. Bush, scion of the party’s most powerful family, needs to win over conservative activists – or at least enough of them to beat the competition when primaries and caucuses begin in a year.

Enter the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, the Super Bowl of "movement conservative" activism.

None of the speakers have formally launched 2016 campaigns, but they are traveling to states that hold the earliest nominating contests and building their political operations.
