By Isabel Coles and Jonny Hogg ARBIL Iraq/MURSITPINAR Turkey (Reuters) - Iraqi Kurdish troops drove Islamic State fighters from a strategic border crossing with Syria on Tuesday and won the support of members of a major Sunni tribe, in one of the biggest successes since U.S. forces began bombing the Islamists.

Famed violinist plays do-over at DC train station

Acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell performs with young musicians who are alumni of the National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) during a performance, Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014, at Union Station in Washington. Seven years ago, Bell performed incognito for tips in a Washington subway station, but almost no one stopped to listen.

It made for a good story that eventually won the Pulitzer Prize and inspired a children's book and even mentions in church sermons. (AP Photo/Molly Riley)WASHINGTON (AP) ?

File photo of shopper walking down aisle in newly opened Walmart Neighborhood Market in ChicagoBy Sam Forgione NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. consumer confidence fell in September for the first time in five months and home prices in July rose less than expected from a year earlier, underscoring the unsteady nature of U.S. growth. Another report on Tuesday showed business activity growth in the U.S. Midwest decelerated slightly in September. "We're continuing to effectively struggle," said Mike Englund, chief economist at Action Economics in Boulder, Colorado.

The move, announced on Tuesday, is an about-face for eBay's top leadership, including Chief Executive Officer John Donahoe, who publicly resisted Icahn's push earlier this year and led a campaign to convince investors that eBay and PayPal should remain together.
