FILE - In this July 26, 2014 file photo, AS Roma's Francesco Totti kicks for a goal during an exhibition soccer match against Manchester United at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Co. For Italian football fans, merely mentioning the word "scudetto" _ league title _ in association with a favorite club is considered tabu. The theory goes that it's better left unsaid until your squad actually raises the trophy. Yet recently, the word has begun popping up in animated discussions inside Rome's myriad coffee bars and impassioned sports-talk radio stations. The talk, and not only in the capital, is that Roma can put together a serious challenge for the Serie A title this season. Three years after takeover by US owners, Roma is expected to contend for the Serie A title. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, file)

FILE - In this Monday, Aug. 26, 2013 file photo, supporters of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) hold placards with the nickname of German Chancellor and CDU leader Angela Merkel at an election campaign event of the CDU  in Ilmenau, central Germany. Ordinary Germans are spooked about the future. Businesses see black clouds on the horizon. And an economy that has been the envy of Europe is already showing cracks, shrinking last quarter under the strain of conflicts in Ukraine and elsewhere. It might seem like enough to put any leader into trouble. But Chancellor Angela Merkel's popularity remains sky-high _ with nobody in sight to touch her. (AP Photo/Jens Meyer, File)

In this photo taken Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014, Greg Groff and his daughter Olivia, of Chicago, walk during a visit at the Miami Seaquarium in Key Biscayne, Fla. They noted the pink scars and disfigured tail on one manatee, damage from a boat propeller that left it unable to survive in the wild. Florida’s manatees need even more stringent protections than their listing on the federal endangered species list, Groff said, adding that boaters should go elsewhere if they don’t like speed limits in waters where manatees swim.
