    FILE - In this Oct. 24, 2009 file photo an ultra-Orthodox Jewish demonstrator reacts, in front of an Israeli policeman, during a demonstration against the opening of a parking garage next to Jerusalem's Old City, in Jerusalem. Tel Aviv's City Hall is taking aim at the country's religious establishment with a move to launch bus service on the Jewish Sabbath. The decision has created an uproar and deepens a brewing cultural war between secular and religious Israelis over the nature of the Jewish state. The religious establishment has been under fire for what many perceive to be attempts to impose their cultural values on the country's secular majority.(AP Photo/ Tara Todras-Whitehill, Files)

    FILE - In this Jan. 16, 2012, file photo Republican presidential candidate, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and his wife Karen leave the Faith and Freedom Coalition rally in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Most Americans don?t share Santorum?s absolutist take on abortion. He?s out of step on women in combat, and he questions the values of the two-thirds of mothers who work. He?s even troubled by something as commonplace as birth control _ for married couples. Even among a Republican presidential field anxious to please religious conservatives, his ideas stand out. (AP Photo/David Goldman)

    In this photo released by CBS News White house Chief of Staff Jacob Lew talks on CBS's Face the Nation in Washington Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012. Lew, who appeared on various Sunday shows, said the new budget would put the country on track to achieve $4 trillion in deficit reductions over the next 10 years, achieved by raising taxes on the wealthy and trimming government spending. The president's budget would cut spending by $2.50 for every $1 it raises in new taxes. "In the long run, we need to get the deficit under control in a way that builds the economy," he said. "We do it in a way that's consistent with American values so that everyone pays a fair share." (AP Photo/CBS News, Chris Usher)

High atmospheric pressure is typically associated with good flying weather.Not so at the Lulea air base in northern Sweden, where about a dozen Gripen fighter jets were barred from taking part in a Nordic air exercise Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012, because of an abnormally strong high pressure system. It's not that it's unsafe to fly, says base commander Mats Hakkarainen, but the pressure is so extreme the planes' instruments are being confused by the values and issue error signals. The national weather agency says the atmospheric pressure in northern Sweden reached a 40-year high on Sunday. (AP Photo/SvD Scanpix, Par Olsson) SWEDEN OUT
