10 Things to Know for Today from The Associated Press

:

Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about Wednesday:

1. POWERFUL 8.2-MAGNITUDE QUAKE STRIKES OFF CHILEAN COAST

The tremor sets off a small tsunami and causes landslides that block roads. Strong aftershocks follow.

2. GM FACES CONGRESS ON RECALL DELAYS

The company's new CEO admits she doesn't know why it took years for the automaker to fix a faulty ignition switch linked to 13 deaths.

3. PALESTINIANS RESTART BID FOR UN RECOGNITION

The surprise decision signals a new crisis in the troubled efforts to bring peace to the Middle East.

4. US WEIGHS RISK OF FREEING JONATHAN POLLARD

Releasing the convicted spy could spur talks between Israel and the Palestinians — or prove a costly embarrassment to the White House.

5. CONGRESS OKs $1B FOR UKRAINE

The loan guarantees are part of a bill giving lawmakers a way to denounce Russia for its military incursion and express support for Kiev.

6. WHICH YOUNG AMERICANS ARE STILL AT A CLEAR DISADVANTAGE

The public by and large still views the law negatively — and that's unlikely to change much between now and the mid-term elections in November.

9. HOW APPLE SAYS SAMSUNG REACTED TO THE IPHONE

The South Korean company didn't have a product that could compete — so it stole the iPhone technology, Apple alleges in a patent infringement trial.
