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

1) GOP VOWS TO CONTINUE BUDGET STANDOFF

Republicans and Democrats are trading blame on who would be responsible for a shutdown if the funding bill doesn't pass.

2) WHAT THE SHUTDOWN WOULD SHUTTER

Social Security benefit payments would continue, but not WIC food and health programs, toll-free tax help lines or meat inspections.

3) NETANYAHU UNIMPRESSED WITH IRAN'S OVERTURES

He says President Rouhani's declaration of readiness to negotiate on Iran's disputed nuclear program disguises its intent to create a bomb.

4) WHY AL-SHABAB SAYS IT'S SPARING MUSLIMS

Papers believed to belong to the al-Qaida affiliate indicate they understand indiscriminate attacks alienate other Muslims.

5) WHERE YOU LIVE MIGHT AFFECT AFFORDABLE CARE INFO ACCESS

Republican-led states in the South and Midwest that oppose the law have made it harder to provide or get information about health care exchanges.

6) SYRIA INSPECTORS' PLANS FOR DESTRUCTION

To help the country scrap its chemical weapons, U.N. experts said that may need to blow up missiles, smash empty shells and demolish machinery.

7) USDA: NEW LUNCH STANDARDS SPUR HEALTHIER EATING

In an effort to stem childhood obesity, the guidelines set limits on calories and salt, and phase in more whole grains, fruit and vegetables for schoolchildren.

8) BP BACK IN COURT FOR GULF SPILL

The trial that resumes Monday will focus on methods the oil giant employed during its 86-day struggle to stop the 176-million gallon gusher.

9) HOW 3-D PRINTING COULD REVOLUTIONIZE SPACE EXPLORATION

The toaster-sized machines would serve as flying factories, allowing astronauts to pare down the tools, spare parts and supplies they bring aboard.

10) MORE RECORDS FALL FOR PEYTON MANNING

The Denver QB's 16 scoring passes are the most in the first month of a season, besting the mark of 14 set by Don Meredith in 1966 and tied by Kurt Warner in 1999.
