Yahoo big investors may back Microsoft
Most of Yahoo Inc's (YHOO.O) top institutional shareholders may be more interested in making sure Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) does not overpay for the Web pioneer, because they have more money invested in the bigger software maker, a research report said on Friday. Financial risk management analysis company RiskMetrics Group found that close to 90 percent of Yahoo's institutional shareholders have a cross-holding in Microsoft, including most of the top 20 -- and generally have significantly more money invested in Microsoft.

University shooter outstanding student, but erratic: officials
The gunman who shot dead five people at a university here was identified Friday as an "outstanding" graduate student with no history of trouble but signs of erratic behavior in the last two weeks. Officials drew a mixed picture of Stephen Kazmierczak, 27, who opened fire in a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University Thursday, killing five students and wounding 15 others before turning his gun on himself.

NIU gunman stopped taking medication
If there is such a thing as a profile of a mass murderer, Stephen Kazmierczak didn't fit it: outstanding student, engaging, polite and industrious, with what looked like a bright future in the criminal justice field. And yet on Thursday, the 27-year-old Kazmierczak, armed with three handguns and a brand-new pump-action shotgun he had carried onto campus in a guitar case, stepped from behind a screen on the stage of a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University and opened fire on a geology class. He killed five students before committing suicide.

McCain scolds Obama on campaign funds
Republican Sen. John McCain admonished Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for hedging on whether he would accept public funding as promised if he wins his party's nomination or use his prolific fundraising operation. "I made the commitment to the American people that if I were the nominee of my party, I would accept public financing," McCain said Friday in Oshkosh, Wis. "I expect Senator Obama to keep his word to the American people as well. This is all about a commitment that we made to the American people.

Clinton tries to hold coalition
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton declared herself the "candidate of, from and for the middle class of America" as she worked to keep her Democratic coalition in Ohio intact against a hard-charging Sen. Barack Obama. Clinton has relied on working-class Democrats for much of her support in six weeks of presidential primary contests across the country and is counting on them even as Obama racks up important union endorsements.
