A graphic design company out of San Francisco, 99designs, challenged people to come up with a new name and logo for the Washington Redskins. Over 1,887 designs were submitted from 347 designers all over the country on their online contest.

Name suggestions range from Warriors to Redtails from Renegades to Griffins. Some were in keeping with the American-Indian theme. Others tied into Washington sites and history. Redtails, based on the Tuskegee Airmen, isn’t really tied to D.C. history but is in 2nd place.

In creating the contest 99designs posts, “Our goal with this contest is to rebrand the franchise based on three different name suggestions with a logo that's a little more PC. And to have fun with it!”

    HAVANA (AP) -- Cuban authorities say they have eliminated more than 100,000 jobs in health care, considered one of the pillars of the 1959 revolution. The cuts come as President Raul Castro tries to streamline government as part of a broader economic reform package. The weekly labor newspaper Trabajadores said Monday that 109,000 health care positions have been cut. Two years ago, Cuba said more than 50,000 jobs in that sector had been slashed. Most of the cuts came in less-skilled positions...
