FORT KENT, Maine ? A Maine judge has given nurse Kaci Hickox the OK to go wherever she pleases, handing state officials a defeat in their bid to isolate her.

The nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone called it "a good day" and said her "thoughts, prayers and gratitude" remain with those who are still battling Ebola in West Africa.

The state sought to impose restrictions until Hickox's 21-day incubation period for Ebola ends on Nov. 10.

Sony's quarterly loss balloons on mobile woes

TOKYO ? Sony's losses ballooned to 136 billion yen ($1.2 billion) last quarter as the Japanese electronics and entertainment company's troubled mobile phone division reported huge red ink.

The Tokyo-based maker of the PlayStation 4 video game machines, Spider-Man movies and Xperia smartphones had reported a 19.6 billion yen loss for the same July-September period a year earlier.

The poor result released Friday was despite a 7 percent increase in quarterly sales to 1.9 trillion yen ($17.3 billion) as performance improved in cameras, TVs and game businesses.

Exxon defies low oil price with refining strength

NEW YORK ? ExxonMobil Corp.'s refining and chemical operations rescued the company's third-quarter results amid falling global oil prices and lower oil and gas production.

Exxon, the biggest U.S. oil company, posted a surprise increase in profit thanks to a 38 percent increase in profit from turning oil and gas into fuels and chemicals.

"There's a reason Exxon is viewed as a safe haven in energy, and it's because it is diversified," said Brian Youngberg, an analyst at Edward Jones. "It can weather low oil prices."

Before midterms, Obama plugs policies for women

PROVIDENCE, R.I. ? With an election four days away, President Barack Obama urged women to raise their voices in favor of economic policies that benefit them and against politicians that he said belong in a "Mad Men" episode from a bygone era. Citing his own experiences as the son of a single mom and the father of two girls, he declared: "Some of this is personal."

Obama said his grandmother, a bank vice president, got passed over for promotions by people she had trained, and his mother raised him and his sister "without a lot of support."

Obama?s midterm loss record could make history

President Barack Obama is about to do what no president has done in the past 50 years: have two horrible, terrible, awful midterm elections in a row.

In fact, Obama is likely to have the worst midterm numbers of any two-term president going back to Democrat Harry S. Truman.

Truman lost a total of 83 House seats during his two midterms (55 seats in 1946 and 28 seats in 1950), while Republican Dwight Eisenhower lost a combined 66 House seats in the 1954 and 1958 midterms.
