RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — When Leticia Miranda had a job selling newspapers on the streets, she earned about $160 a month, just enough to pay for a tiny apartment she shared with her 8-year-old son in a poor neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.When she lost her job about six months ago amid Brazil's worst economic crisis in decades, Miranda had no choice but to move to an abandoned building where several hundred people were already living. All of her possessions — a bed, a fridge, a stove and some clothes — have been jammed into a small room that like all the others in the building has windows with no glass. Residents bathe in large garbage cans filled with water and do their best to live with the stench of mountains of trash and rummaging pigs in the center of the building.

Talk about a clunker of a day around the NFL: There were three shutouts in a span of about 6½ hours, the same number of zeros put up throughout all of last season.With all of the emphasis on offense over the years, with rule changes intended to make it easier to score and harder to defend, it's surprising — and not all that enjoyable — to see that sort of futile production.
