Toyota wiper problem
Toyota is recalling 10,000 of its newest and most popular models to fix a problem with the windshield wiper switch, the automaker said. The action covers the 2013-14 Camry and Camry Hybrid, the 2013 Avalon and Avalon Hybrid, and the 2014 Corolla. The automaker said some of the contacts could have been manufactured incorrectly, causing an electrical short if the wipers are switched from “off” to “mist” that would shut down the wipers.

Ten years into its $8 billion airfield overhaul, O’Hare International Airport is opening a second new runway that officials say will begin to ease the Chicago airport’s congestion and eliminate the flight delays that have a ripple effect across the country. Planes started landing and taking off Thursday on the 10,800-foot runway in the southern half of the airport’s footprint. That marks the end of the first phase of the O’Hare Modernization Program, a massive project begun in part to address the crippling delays and maintain the airport’s status as a key crossroads in the nation’s transportation architecture. When the project is complete, O’Hare will have six parallel and two crosswind runways.
