TORONTO (AP) — Mark Teixeira made sure the New York Yankees had something to declare at customs on their way home from Canada: a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Teixeira hit a two-run home run, Hiroki Kuroda won for the first time in four starts and the Yankees beat Toronto 5-3 on Wednesday night, snapping their losing streak at four games.

"That was a big win," Teixeira said. "We needed this one to stop the bleeding a little bit.

NEW YORK (AP) — A miserable weekend for the Cincinnati Reds ended with an embarrassing gaffe.

Jacoby Ellsbury got four hits and scored the winning run in the ninth inning on Brian McCann's pop-fly single that dropped near three Reds in shallow right field, giving the New York Yankees a 3-2 victory Sunday.

"I do not think anybody really wants to talk about it at this exact moment," manager Bryan Price said. "Unfortunate way to lose a game.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The Justice Department has reached a settlement with a New Jersey school district resolving allegations that a student was denied use of his service dog for school-related activities.

The agreement says the Delran Township School District must pay $10,000 to the student's family and adopt a service animal policy compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Federal authorities say the student uses the dog to alert to his seizures, provide mobility and body support, and mitigate symptoms of autism.

LEHI, Utah (AP) — Police say a 47-year-old Lehi man has confessed to poisoning his neighbors' dog after officers confronted him.

Lehi police Sgt. Jeff Swenson said the man admitted to intentionally poisoning the dog that died last week. A second dog that belongs to another family a few houses over also became ill, and Swenson said police are waiting on lab results for that animal.

KSL-TV reports a veterinarian who treated the dogs believes they were fed the rodent poison strychnine.

Sometimes, a policy is so dense, so politicized or so boring that it begs for explainers and analyses and charts. It happened with the debt ceiling, it happened with Obamacare and it's happening with Common Core.  What to do when there are so many explanations that a curious individual has difficulty deciding which explanation to trust?

Here's an effort to try to understand Common Core -- and shifts of perceptions of the education standards -- through the lens of the stories that tried to explain them and the people who explained why they don't like the standards, including many of the politicians considering a presidential run in 2016.

Conservative media star Glenn Beck led a national strategy session to kill the Common Core State Standards late Tuesday night, using a two-hour simulcast into movie theaters across the country as a way to embolden critics of the standards and recruit more foot soldiers to the cause.

“This one is being won,” Beck said from a sound stage in Texas, his image broadcast to audience members who paid $20 a ticket to attend.

MIDLAND, Mich. — Dow Chemical’s second-quarter net income slid 62 percent from a prior-year period that benefited from a $2.16 billion payment related to a scrapped joint venture.

But Dow’s adjusted profit and revenue topped analysts’ estimates. The stock climbed in premarket trading on Wednesday.

The specialty chemical company’s earnings after preferred stock dividends dropped to $882 million, or 73 cents per share, from $2.34 billion, or $1.87 per share, a year ago.

A year earlier Dow Chemical received a $2.16 billion payment from Petrochemical Industries Co.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook and most other social networks are built on the premise that just about everything should be shared —except the money those posts produce.

At least two services are trying to change that. Bubblews, a social network that came out of out of an extended test phase last week, pays users for posts that attract traffic and advertisers. Another company, Bonzo Me, has been doing something similar since early July.

“I just feel like everyone on social networks has been taken advantage of for long enough,” says Michael Nusbaum, a New Jersey surgeon who created Bonzo Me.
