    A player-autographed helmet from the All-American Game is displayed at the Xenith headquarters in Lowell, Massachusetts March 26, 2012. As Americans grow more aware of the risk of brain injury tied to football - the country's most popular sport - players and coaches are experimenting with the latest technology in a bid to make the game safer. The U.S. Army All-Americans, selected from all over the United States based on athletic and academic excellence, wore the Xenith X2 football helmet this past January in their nationally televised All-American Game. Xenith is currently working on developing an advanced military helmet featuring Xenith's technology. Picture taken March 26, 2012.

    FILE - In this file photo taken Sept. 11, 2002, then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany, left, now Pope Benedict XVI, is seen with late Pope John Paul II during mass in St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican. Devotion still runs high for the pope's predecessor, who honored Mexico by making it his first trip outside the Vatican and coming back four more times. For many Catholics, the March 23-26 papal visit to Mexico is long overdue, given that in seven years as pontiff, Benedict has never visited Mexico where there are more Catholics than any other Spanish-speaking country. The German pontiff known as a staid academic is uncomfortable with Latin America's mix of Catholicism and popular mysticism and its legions of unsanctioned saints. (AP Photo/Pier Paolo Cito, File)

    In this April 18, 2011 file photo, Chris Bowser of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, left, checks a net for American eels with Kingston High School students on the Black Creek in West Park, N.Y. They have a reputation for being environmentally minded do-gooders. But an academic analysis of surveys spanning more than 40 years has found that today's young Americans are less interested in the environment and in conserving resources - and often less civic-minded overall - than their elders were when they were young. The findings go against the widespread belief that environmental issues have hit home with today's young adults, known as Millennials, who have grown up amid climate change discussion and the mantra ?reduce, reuse, recycle.? Even the researchers who did the analysis didn't expect to find that. (AP Photo/Mike Groll)

    John Kerry, Democrat chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations exits a hotel across from the United Nations, Friday, March 9, 2012, in New York. Kerry attended a closed-door conference that included nuclear envoys of North and South Korea. The two-day, academic forum in New York is an opportunity to break the ice between communist North Korea and U.S.-allied South Korea, which in turn could nudge forward efforts to restart long-stalled, six-nation talks on the North's nuclear program.(AP Photo/ Louis Lanzano)
