Fox News Radio's SIMON OWEN (Live from Athens) THE CLOCK IS TICKING ON GREECE The Greek government has submitted proposals for economic reforms in an effort to secure a further bailout from its international creditors. Eurozone officials received the plan late on Thursday, just two hours before a midnight deadline. They will now study it ahead of EU meetings at the weekend. Greece's lenders had demanded tax and pension reforms in return for funds. The indebted country needs a third bailout to avoid a default and a possible exit from the euro. Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ("SIP-rahs") Thursday, seeking agreement on the reforms from his government partners.

QUESTIONS LINGER OVER NYSE, UNITED, WSJ 'GLITCHES' U.S. security officials said they have no evidence that the computer problems that struck the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal's website Wednesday were anything but glitches -- but that hasn't totally eased the minds of some cyber security experts or America's top law enforcement official. "That caught my attention. We're not big believers in coincidence either. We want to dig into that part," FBI Director James Comey said at a Senate hearing Wednesday in response to a question about the near-simultaneous computer issues. "We do not see any indication of a cyber-breach or cyber-attack... But again, in my business, you don't love coincidences." Early Wednesday morning United Airlines experienced a computer problem that prompted the airline to ground its fleet nationwide. The company later said it was all traced to a router issue and once that was resolved, planes took to the sky again. Within a few hours, the NYSE halted trading on its floors for a few hours after an apparent "configuration" issue interfered with trading for some stocks. Once again, the problem was purportedly fixed and the NYSE opened again before the closing bell. The Wall Street Journal's website issues -- which affected some readers attempting to access the financial paper's homepage -- coincided with the NYSE issues, leading Comey to speculate in Wednesday's hearing that perhaps the influx of people trying to find out about the NYSE problem had overloaded the WSJ servers.
