South Korea's economy grew 2 percent in 2012, its weakest performance in three years, and is not expected to rebound strongly this year, the central bank said Thursday.

The Bank of Korea blamed weak growth on a drop in corporate investment and lackluster exports, which offset the government's increased spending on construction projects and welfare. The government spending contributed 0.6 percentage point to the 2012 growth rate. South Korea's economy, Asia's fourth largest, is forecast to improve only modestly this year because demand for exports has been sapped by Europe's debt crisis and an uncertain recovery in the U.S. The central bank earlier this month downgraded its 2013 growth forecast to 2.8 percent from 3.2 percent forecast in October.

Web maps have come a long way. Improved data, cleaner design, better performance, and more intuitive controls have made web maps a ubiquitous and critical component of many apps.

They've also become one of the mobile space's most successful transplants as more and more apps are powered by location-aware devices. The core web map UI paradigm itself-a continuous, pannable, zoomable surface-has even spread beyond mapping to interfaces everywhere. Despite all this, we've barely begun to work web maps into our design practice. We create icon fonts, responsive grids, CSS frameworks, progressive enhancement strategies, and even new design processes. We tear down old solutions and build new ones, and even take an extra second to share battle stories in prose and in person. Yet nearly five years since Paul Smith's article, "Take Control of Your Maps," web maps are still a blind spot for most designers.

Report notes FBI staffers who first spotted Hasan discussed the political sensitivity of interviewing Muslims who visit extremist websites.

Lawmakers expressed concern that a recently released review of the FBI's actions in the Fort Hood shootings showed an agency that let "political sensitivities" temper the aggressiveness of their investigation into Army Major Nidal Hasan. "An active duty member of the military communicating with a known radicalizer and recruiter should have been taken more seriously than it was," said Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies at a hearing to review the findings yesterday.

Today on Your World, Neil Cavuto reported that dozens of routine health care procedures may be on the chopping block. Several doctor groups issued recommendations to limit testing on everything from breast cancer screenings to E.K.G. tests.

This call is seen as an acknowledgement by physicians that many profitable tests and procedures are performed unnecessarily and even harmed patients. Furthermore, new mammography guidelines that advised women to be screened less often for breast cancer, have caused fear among some women about increasing government control over personal care decisions and the rationing of treatment.

Tiny computer chips used for tracking food, tickets and other items are getting even smaller. Hitachi (HIT), recently showed off radio frequency identification, or RFID, chips that are just 0.002 inches by 0.002 inches and look like bits of powder.

(They're thin enough to be embedded in a piece of paper, company spokesman Masayuki Takeuchi said Thursday. The technology is already widely used to track and identify items, such as monitoring the distribution of food products or guarding against forgery of concert tickets.

The ongoing debt-ceiling debate (unlike most past increases of the debt ceiling) has involved negotiations about various avenues to deficit reduction.

That's not only because Republicans have the leverage to demand something in return for raising the limit, but also in large part because the debate comes amidst grave worries about our mounting debt, and warnings from creditors and rating agencies about where it's headed. The warnings are based on the unprecedented projected trajectory of the debt. Here is how the CBO sees it going, compared to the scope of our national debt in the past...

Easter rapidly approaching, I knew that mom's everywhere would soon be thinking about coloring Easter eggs for the hunts that will be taking place all over.

We've always got fruits and vegetables on hand, as my husband is a juicing fiend. I knew it would be easy to gather exactly what I needed to have a wide variety of colors. Brown onions, red onions, beets, blueberries, spinach, red cabbage, turmeric, and paprika.

(Video Report) The DOJ accused the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office of racial profiling in traffic stops and immigration operations.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said at a packed news conference that the findings were not based on isolated incidents and not gleaned solely from statistics but about real people caught up in the sheriff's web of unconstitutional activity. The problem, Perez said, is rooted in a culture in the Sheriff's Office that breeds a culture of disregard for the constitution.
