WASHINGTON - An American journalist held hostage in a remote part of eastern Yemen by Al Qaeda 's affiliate there was one of the main targets of a predawn raid carried out this week by United States Special Operations commandos and Yemeni troops, according to American and Yemeni officials. But when the commandos swooped in on the mountain cave where they believed the American was being held, they found eight other hostages, including six Yemenis, but not the American. At the request of the Obama administration, The New York Times withheld this information in an article published online Tuesday and in print Wednesday out of concern that the publicity could jeopardize the American's safety and future rescue attempts.   more...

Over the past few years, the federal government has nurtured the growth of an odd kind of player in the energy markets: companies that recruit consumers to unplug themselves when electricity use is high, in exchange for a price break. The companies have been embraced by electric companies and system operators who say they have helped make service more reliable, and even helped avoid rolling blackouts during heat waves. The approach has also lowered costs for all customers, experts and executives say, as utilities have needed to buy less of the most expensive power to meet peak needs.   more...

There's a calmly heartbreaking moment near the close of "Beautiful Life," a poignant new album by the saxophonist Jimmy Greene. It arrives in "Little Voices," an original poem read by the actress Anika Noni Rose. "All those precious little voices," she says over a fluttery gospel groove.

The context behind these words is wrenchingly clear. Mr. Greene, a substantial figure in the modern jazz mainstream, was among the parents who lost a child in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Conn.   more...
