"Băsescu extracted from Obama the promise of the American dream", the Evenimentul zilei writes.

The newspaper reports that "on his return from the U.S., the head of state, Traian Băsescu, gave assurances that, following his meeting with Barack Obama, the White House leader showed signs of interest in supporting Romania's inclusion in the Visa Waiver Programme".

The article informs that "the text of the Joint Declaration on Strategic Partnership between Romania and the U.S. provides the requirement that aspiring countries must meet in order to be included in this programme, namely to cooperate with the United States in fighting terrorism".

The Adevărul covers the same topic under the headline "What's next after Băsescu's visit in America?".

The publication talks about the security and attracting the American investors besides the benefits of the agreement. According to President Traian Băsescu, the news of the shield location has caused a great buzz among foreign companies and stirred their interest to invest in Romania.

We change the topic and learn from the Jurnalul Naţional that "owning a chainsaw means no heating aid" and that "the state does not take into account those who have more than three cows in their barn".

The newspaper gives details about the decision the Government took yesterday, establishing what categories of people should receive heating aid during winter.

"How does a teacher who has been graded with F get to teach in high school?", the România Liberă headlines.

The publication describes a situation in which "a candidate who has failed the tenure and substitution exams, even though he has been preparing himself for years in college for a certain specialization, gets to teach other subjects and the law Education allows it".

The author of the article reveals concrete cases, recalling that, however, "the Minister of Education, Daniel Funeriu, promised that no person who received a grade below E at the tenure and substitution exams held in the summer would teach in the new school year".
