Today in history
Today is Friday, Nov. 18, the 322nd day of 2011. There are 43 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 18, 1883, the United States and Canada adopted a system of Standard Time zones.

Ten years ago: Phillips Petroleum Co. and Conoco Inc. announced they were merging in a deal to create the third-largest U.S. oil and gas company.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush, in Hanoi for a summit of Pacific Rim countries, lined up support for pressuring long-defiant North Korea to prove it was serious about dismantling its nuclear weapons program. In a fairy-tale setting, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes exchanged wedding vows in a glowing 15th-century castle in the medieval lakeside town of Bracciano, Italy.

One year ago: President Barack Obama rallied former diplomatic and military chiefs from both parties to pressure reluctant Republican senators into ratifying a nuclear weapons deal with Russia. (The Senate ratified the treaty the following month.)
