HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba's experiment with free-market reforms has unintentionally widened the communist-led island's racial divide and allowed white Cubans to regain some of the economic advantages built up over centuries.

Under President Raul Castro, who took over from his brother Fidel Castro in 2008, Cuba has expanded its non-state workforce, loosened travel restrictions and promoted private cooperatives and small businesses.

As the communist government relinquishes its once near-total control of the economy, inequality has widened, undoing some of the progress seen since the 1959 revolution.

The brain can be trained to prefer healthy food over unhealthy high-calorie foods, using a diet which does not leave people hungry, suggests a study from the US.

Scientists from Tufts University say food addictions can be changed in this way even if they are well-established.

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Not much activity in the tropics as we get closer to the peak of the season, September 10.

The only area worth watching at the moment is a wave currently over the Yucatan. The wave will move westward today and once over the Bay of Campeche, further development is possible.

The Hurricane Center is giving the disturbance a high percent chance of strengthening and the Hurricane Hunters will possibly investigate the area later today.

BARCELONA (Reuters) - Though speculation is rife of a new Pfizer bid, AstraZeneca's chief executive is not holed up with advisers in London or New York. Instead, he has spent the last three days immersed in heart science in Barcelona.

"The only thing I can tell you is I am here - and imagine where I would be if something was happening!" Pascal Soriot told Reuters on the sidelines of the European Society of Cardiology congress, the world's largest heart meeting.

TORONTO (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs cut its price target on Bombardier Inc and reiterated a "sell" rating on shares of the train and plane maker on Tuesday, warning it expected the CSeries aircraft's entry into service to be delayed again.

Goldman's price cut came just days after a Swedish carrier backed out as the first customer to start commercial flights with its new CSeries jet.

Malmo Aviation, owned by Sweden's Braathens Aviation, was slated to be the first CSeries customer to take delivery of the new jet in the second half of 2015, but the airline said on Friday that will no longer be the case.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures advanced on Tuesday, after the S&P 500 closed out its best month since February, ahead of reports on the manufacturing sector.

Investors will eye the final August reading on the manufacturing sector from financial data firm Markit at 9:45 a.m. (1345 GMT).

At 10 a.m. (1400 GMT), the Institute for Supply Management's August reading on manufacturing will be released.

When you shop for groceries, you might check the labels to see which foods are leaner in calories and fat, but you've probably never checked those labels for political leanings.

Yet companies that make products in the grocery aisles pour billions of dollars into the political system, and now a smartphone app called BuyPartisan is giving new meaning to voting with your wallet, reports CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes.

"It is a Eureka moment: So you go, 'Oh my God, I wasn't aware of that!'" said Matt Colbert, creator of BuyPartisan.

Arnold Schwarzenegger may have shagged the maid — but wife Maria Shriver is no June Cleaver.

The Kennedy heiress was supposedly sleeping with her husband’s lead campaign strategist well before Schwarzenegger’s old affair with their housekeeper came to light, according to The New York Post, which cites campaign staffers and other sources.

WASHINGTON – U.S. home prices rose in July but at a slower rate compared with earlier this year. The moderating price increases could help support sales.

Real estate data provider CoreLogic said Tuesday that prices rose 7.4 percent in July from July 2013. That was slightly below June's year-over-year increase of 7.5 percent and far below a recent peak of 11.9 percent in February.
