|Ferguson federal probe reveals racist emails||AP Source: Peyton Manning returning for 18th NFL season (Yahoo Sports)|
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says report shows deep distrust and hostility in the community.
Peyton Manning is taking one more shot at the silver trophy. Weeks of speculation about the five-time MVP's future ended Wednesday with word that he's returning for an 18th season in the NFL and fourth in Denver. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Manning will take a $4 million pay cut, from $19 million to $15 million, but that he can make it all back through performance incentives.
|U.S. ambassador to S. Korea slashed on face and wrist in attack||A-Rod 1 for 2 in return from drug ban as Phils top Yanks 3-1 (Yahoo Sports)|
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean media say U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert has been attacked while giving a lecture and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Alex Rodriguez walked from the batter's box to home plate in the bottom of the first inning, eye black smeared across his face, and said hello to Philadelphia catcher Tommy Joseph, who was just 1 when A-Rod was taken first in the 1993 amateur draft. ''I told Marty and Tommy to take it easy on the old man,'' Rodriguez explained. ''It's been a couple of years since I've been in the box.'' Rodriguez lined a single to left field in his return to the New York Yankees' lineup after an absence of 524 days. He went 1 for 2 with a walk in a 3-1 spring-training loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, another step forward as he tries to resume his drug-scarred career.
|'It WAS him': Defense admits Tsarnaev bombed Boston Marathon||Ray Allen says he will not play this NBA season (Yahoo Sports)|
BOSTON (AP) — The question, for all practical purposes, is no longer whether Dzhokhar Tsarnaev took part in the Boston Marathon bombing. It's whether he deserves to die for it.
Ray Allen might return to the NBA - just not this season. The league's all-time leading 3-point shooter who played for two NBA championship clubs announced Wednesday that he decided not to sign with any franchise for the remainder of this season, although he left the door open for a possible return in 2015-16. ''Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me,'' Allen said in a statement released through the office of his agent, Jim Tanner. ''I've ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season.'' Allen's future has been the source of incessant speculation since last summer, so much so that at one point Tanner felt compelled to post a message on social media and deny widespread reports that the future Hall of Fame sharpshooter had signed with Cleveland.
|Benghazi committee subpoenas Hillary Clinton's emails||Saints cutting veteran running back Pierre Thomas (Yahoo Sports)|
The House Select Committee on Benghazi is planning to subpoena Clintonmail.com.
The New Orleans Saints have notified veteran running back Pierre Thomas that he is being released after eight seasons with the club. Thomas' agent, Lamont Smith, confirmed the move Wednesday, while Thomas posted messages about the end of his playing days in New Orleans on social media. ''I want to thank the New Orleans Saints organization, all my coaches, my teammates and the Who Dat Nation for an amazing adventur,'' Thomas wrote on his Twitter page. I am thankful to have spent the past 8 years in the great city of New Orleans! ... All good things must come to an end but I'm not done yet!!!'' Thomas, 30, joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois in 2007 and was a key figure on offense in his third season, turning screen passes into pivotal touchdowns in both the NFC Championship game victory over Minnesota and in the Super Bowl triumph over Indianapolis.
|In Israel, analysts see election boost for Netanyahu from speech||James scores 29, Cavaliers beat Raptors 120-112 (Yahoo Sports)|
Many analysts in Israel say Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech before Congress, which challenged President Obama's strategy on Iran, may help him garner votes in upcoming elections.
LeBron James scored 29 points and matched a season high with 14 assists, Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers held on late to beat the Toronto Raptors 120-112 on Wednesday night. Kyrie Irving scored 26, J.R. Smith had 15 and James Jones 14 as the Cavaliers won their second straight and improved to 9-8 in the second game of back-to-backs. Jonas Valanciunas scored 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and DeMar DeRozan had 25 points for the Raptors, who lost for the sixth time in seven games. Lou Williams scored 21 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough for the Raptors.

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.
