A piper plays at the end of a No campaign event where former British Prime Minister and No campaigner for the Scottish independence referendum Gordon Brown, left middle row gesturing, and other people and politicians made speeches in Glasgow, Scotland, Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014.  Will the ayes have it, or will Scotland say naw thanks?  No one is certain. Excitement and anxiety mounted across the country Wednesday, the final day of campaigning before Thursday's referendum on independence.  With opinion polls suggesting the result is too close to call and turnout expected to reach record levels, supporters of separation feel they are within touching distance of victory — but wonder whether their surge in the polls will be enough.

FILE - In this file photo taken on Tuesday, July  2, 2013, Russian President Vladimir Putin, left, and CEO of state-controlled Russian oil company Rosneft Igor Sechin speak during a signing ceremony of cooperation agreements with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia. Russian media reports said in June that Russia's largest oil company, state-controlled Rosneft, considered buying Bashneft. In July, a Moscow court arrested Bashneft's stock under a money-laundering probe. Rosneft is run by Igor Sechin, a powerful longtime assistant of President Vladimir Putin. Sechin, who has been placed on the U.S. and the EU sanctions lists over the Ukrainian crisis, was seen as the mastermind behind the 2003 arrest of Russia's then-richest man, Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
