FILE - This Oct. 10, 2013 file photo shows a truck entering the Foster Farms processing plant in Livingston, Calif. The Obama administration is overhauling poultry plant inspections for the first time in more than 50 years, a move it says could result in 5,000 fewer foodborne illnesses each year. The final rules announced Thursday would reduce the number of government poultry inspectors by around a fourth. But those that remain will focus more on food safety than quality, requiring them to pull more birds off the line for closer inspections and encouraging more testing for pathogens. There would also be more inspectors checking the facilities to make sure they are clean. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)

FILE- In this April 27, 2014 file photo, singer Dionne Warwick performs at the 25th Anniversary Rainforest Fund benefit concert at Carnegie Hall in New York. In 1968, Warwick had never been to San Jose and didn’t think much of the song. But after the iconic singer recorded “Do You Know The Way To San Jose?” and the song became a huge hit, the 73-year old singer says with a laugh that she “cried all the way to the bank.” This week Warwick is heading back to San Jose to be dubbed the city’s “global ambassador of goodwill.” She’ll sing that song, as part of an international Sister Cities conference on Friday, Aug. 1, 2014.
