What do you call a negotiation process in which the partners can't talk about key issues? These are existential times for Turkey's bid to join the European Union, an ambitious vision that has become increasingly ambiguous. At a time when Greece's survival in the eurozone is in jeopardy, it seems academic to debate a Turkish entry to European ranks that some Turks feel won't happen in their lifetime, if at all.(AP Photo/File)

The University of Connecticut has proposed reducing the number of games it will play next season if the NCAA grants a waiver to allow the Huskies to play in the 2013 men's basketball tournament. The school currently would be barred from the NCAA tournament, a penalty for years of below-standard academic results, but it requested a waiver last month. (AP Photo/Haraz Ghanbari, File)

    FILE - In this Sept. 23, 2011, file photo, President Barack Obama speaks about No Child Left Behind Reform in the East Room of the White House in Washington. In its initial review of No Child Left Behind waiver requests, the U.S. Department of Education highlighted a similar weakness in nearly every application: States did not do enough to ensure schools would be held accountable for the performance of all students. The Obama administration praised the states for their high academic standards. But nearly every application was critiqued for being loose on setting high goals and, when necessary, interventions, for all student groups _ including minorities, the disabled and low-income _ or failing to create sufficient incentives to close the achievement gap.

    A statue of the former Chinese chairman Mao Zedong stands in front of an academic building in central Beijing January 17, 2012. China had more city dwellers than rural residents last year for the first time in history, data showed, a demographic milestone that also points to strains in labour supply in the world's No. 2 economy. As many as 51.27 percent of 1.347 billion mainland Chinese lived in towns and cities at the end of 2011, China's National Bureau of Statistics said.
