Wal-Mart customers can receive 'Goodies' by mail
<![CDATA[RETAIL Wal-Mart Stores Inc . today will officially launch a mail subscription service called Goodies that lets shoppers discover new foods from the comfort of their homes. For a monthly fee of $7 that includes tax and shipping, customers get a box of five to eight hand-picked, sample-size food items, ranging from organic to ethnic products that are not currently carried on Wal-Mart's shelves. The retailer began testing the service three months ago and has 3,000 subscribers. For November, items include pumpkin souffle mix, white cheddar popcorn and dark-chocolate infused quinoa bars. SOFTWARE The latest version of Microsoft's Web browser is now available to the vast audience connecting to the Internet on personal computers running on the Windows 7 operating system. The redesigned browser, Internet Explorer 10, made its debut last month when Microsoft released Windows 8, which makes dramatic changes to an operating system that has been powering PCs for decades. ENERGY The Environmental Protection Agency said Tuesday it plans to deliver a decision soon on whether to waive federal requirements on the amount of corn-based ethanol used in the nation's 240 million gas tanks because of this summer's drought. A decision was due Tuesday, but none had been made by evening. The governors of eight states and nearly 200 members of Congress asked the EPA to waive requirements of the Renewable Fuel Standard signed into law in 2007 by President George W. Bush that mandate the production of increasing quantities of ethanol. The Michigan Farm Bureau said last month it opposes granting the waiver, saying it doesn't believe keeping the requirements in place "would severely harm the economy of Michigan at this time." Recreation AMF Bowling Worldwide has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy so it can implement a pre-arranged restructuring agreement. Virginia-based AMF announced the bankruptcy filing and the agreement Tuesday. The agreement is with a majority of its first lien lenders and the landlord of most of its bowling centers. AMF expects to complete the restructuring and leave Chapter11 in about five months. Bowling centers will continue normal operations during the restructuring. Staff and wire reports
