    Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, center, and Congress party president Sonia Gandhi, third from right, attend a meeting of the Congress Working Committee, the party’s highest decision-making body in New Delhi, India, Tuesday, July 30, 2013. An Indian government official said the ruling coalition decided to support the creation of a new state called Telangana to be carved out of Andhra Pradesh state in southern India. The large size of some of India's 28 states makes them difficult to administer and has prompted movements to divide them. Telangana would become India's 29th state. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup,)

According to Norse mythology Loki is the God of Mischief. In the comic book version Loki becomes the adopted brother of Thor, the God of Thunder, the two eventually becoming arch enemies. Loki and Thor are featured in the Hollywood blockbuster "The Avengers," directed by Joss Whedon. Abara made her son's horned helmet using cardboard, tape and spray paint. The costume play trend, which emerged in Japan and the United States several decades ago, features people who dress as figures from many forms of fantasy. (AP Photo/Isaac Garrido)

    FILE - This July 28, 2013 file photo shows Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas chairs a session of the Palestinian cabinet in the West Bank city of Ramallah. The contours of an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal are clear, we are told. If only the two sides would finally summon up the vision, the will and the courage, then the outcome is largely preordained, it is said: Two states roughly along the pre-1967 borders with Jerusalem as a shared capital and some elegant solution for the Palestinian refugees. This attractive notion of an inevitable eventual result has been around for decades in the diplomatic community _ a deterministic hypothesis that has survived repeated failures by the sides to make the final leap. And the issue is relevant again, with Secretary of State John Kerry having coaxed Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the bargaining table anew, in talks set to begin in Washington this week.
