In this Oct. 16, 2014, photo, Washington Wizards NBA basketball player Paul Pierce is interviewed at the Verizon Center in Washington. When Pierce watched the Wizards in last season's playoffs, he saw plenty of talent and potential. He also saw some issues. They needed something. Turns out, Pierce thought they needed ... him. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)WASHINGTON (AP) — The Associated Press will periodically look at the changing landscape of the NBA during the upcoming season from three perspectives: A player's viewpoint, from the bench, and from the front office.

This photograph taken on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, North Korean soldier-builders work on the new tarmac of Sunan International Airport in Pyongyang, North Korea. The new airport, which is now in its final stages, is the latest of North Korea's "speed campaigns," mass mobilizations of labor shock brigades aimed at finishing top-priority projects in record time. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Pyongyang isn't exactly an international travel hub. But attracting more tourists is one of North Korea's top agenda items, so thousands of soldier-builders are working feverishly these days to give the capital a fancy new airport.

FILE - In this Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014 file photo, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong addresses the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters. International pressure on North Korea began to mount early this year, when a groundbreaking U.N. report by a commission of inquiry laid out widespread abuses, including a harsh system of political prison camps of up to 120,000 people. The commission head, Michael Kirby, said the country's human rights situation "exceeds all others in duration, intensity and horror." Now the European Union and Japan have teamed up on a demand for the Security Council, the U.N.'s most powerful body, to follow the commission of inquiry's advice and refer North Korea's situation to the International Criminal Court. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II, File)UNITED NATIONS (AP) — For an envoy of the North Korean government, which virtually bans the average citizen's contact with the outside world, Kim Ju Song looks breezily connected. A tablet computer is propped on his table in the United Nations' bustling delegates lounge. He hands out his name card with a Gmail address and mobile number and suggests a "coffee meeting to exchange views."
