|Congress edges toward domestic security funding patch||Ex-Louisville guard Jones pleads not guilty to rape, sodomy (Yahoo Sports)|
By David Lawder and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the House of Representatives were planning to pursue on Friday a temporary funding bill to keep the lights on at the U.S. domestic security agency for three weeks, postponing the threat of a partial agency shutdown. As the clock ticked toward a midnight Friday deadline for funding the Department of Homeland Security, lawmakers said a stop-gap extension would buy time to try to work out differences between the Republican-controlled House and the Senate. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, who has insisted on a full Homeland Security funding bill free of immigration reform restrictions that have caused weeks of delay, said on Thursday he would refuse to allow such negotiations with the House.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino had reached his limit with Chris Jones, even before he knew the senior guard was facing felony rape and sodomy charges. Demonstrating a zero tolerance for any more misbehavior after reinstating Jones from a one-game suspension, Pitino abruptly dismissed him from the team. Pitino says all he knew for certain at the time was that Jones had broken a curfew, but had no details about more serious accusations looming. Then Thursday, Jones pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree rape and sodomy.
|CPAC: Convention with history of controversy is underway||LeBron scores 42, Cavs beat Warriors for 18th win in last 20 (Yahoo Sports)|
Since the nonprofit American Conservative Union hosted its first Conservative Political Action Conference in 1973, CPAC has morphed into a massive annual event, with everyone from bloggers to national networks enticed by the opportunity to observe conservatives in their natural habitat in hopes of witnessing something controversial. And CPAC, for its part, rarely disappoints.
LeBron James scored a season-high 42 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 110-99 on Thursday night for their 18th victory in 20 games. James added 11 rebounds, outplaying fellow MVP candidate Stephen Curry and leading Cleveland past the team with the NBA's best record for its 11th straight home victory. David Lee led Golden State (44-11) with 19 points. James was out with knee and back injuries when the teams met Jan. 9, a 112-94 win for Golden State.
|Rand Paul calls out Jeb Bush on marijuana||Bulls say Rose to have surgery on Friday (Yahoo Sports)|
In interview with Yahoo News’ Katie Couric, the GOP senator slams the ex-Florida governor.
The Chicago Bulls are optimistic Derrick Rose will suit up again this season and that surgery Friday on his right knee won't sideline him the rest of the way. The organization sounded upbeat that the procedure to repair a medial meniscus tear won't prevent the star point guard from suiting up again this season. ''Yeah, the hope is that he will,'' executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said Thursday at a team charity event when asked if he expects Rose to play this season. We're hoping this is just a minor setback.'' Rose played in only 10 games last season before having surgery for a similar injury in November 2013, cutting short his long-awaited comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
|Chris Christie turns to media-bashing at CPAC||Florida Panthers add Jaromir Jagr for playoff run (Yahoo Sports)|
As the governor of New Jersey, Christie told her he has reporters from The New York Times covering him every day and accused journalists of taking sides on issues he has stood up against. "When you do things like I've done in New Jersey, take on a lot of these special interests that they support they just want to kill you and that's what they tried to do to me every day and here's the bad news for them, here I am and I'm still standing," Christie, 52, said.
Jaromir Jagr hasn't won the Stanley Cup since 1992. The Florida Panthers have never hoisted hockey's holiest grail, chasing it since their inception in 1993. Chasing a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the Panthers acquired Jagr - who turned 43 earlier this month - from the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for two draft picks, a second-rounder this year and either Florida or Minnesota's third-round selection in 2016. ''We're headed in the right direction,'' said Florida general manager Dale Tallon, whose team entered Thursday two points from the eighth and final playoff spot in the East race.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
