Remembering the Oklahoma City bombing 20 years later
More than hour after his first playoff game with LeBron James and Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving made a statement more profound than anything he did on the floor. ''We,'' Irving said, ''are the Big 3. Irving scored 30 points in his playoff debut, James added 20 in his first postseason game with Cleveland in five years and Love shook off a slow start to record a double-double, leading the Cavaliers to a 113-100 victory in Game 1 over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. ''Those two guys, they succeeded for the first time being in the postseason.'' It was Cleveland's first home playoff game since May 11, 2010, when the Celtics won Game 5 and James left the floor to some boos from Cavaliers fans.
|Cuomo to be first U.S. governor to visit Cuba as ties reopen||Tavares scores early in OT in Isles' 2-1 win over Caps (Yahoo Sports)|
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is heading to Havana, the first American governor to visit Cuba since the recent thaw in relations with the communist nation. Whether his trade mission generates anything more ...
John Tavares can be excused if the Islanders captain doesn't recall the previous time New York won a playoff game in overtime. ''I was only 3 years old then,'' Tavares said, when informed it's been 22 years since that happened. After winning the overtime-opening faceoff, Tavares scored 15 seconds into the extra period to seal a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series on Sunday. With the crowd chanting ''MVP! MVP'' Tavares provided the Islanders a 2-1 series lead.
|Oklahoma City victims remembered 20 years after bombing||Jim Furyk tops Kevin Kisner in playoff to win RBC Heritage (Yahoo Sports)|
By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Hundreds of people gathered on Sunday at the site of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing to remember the 168 men, women and children killed when a truck stuffed with tons of explosives blew up at a downtown federal building. Former President Bill Clinton was among the dignitaries who addressed the crowd outside the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. "Oklahoma City, you had to choose to redeem your terrible losses by having to begin again," said Clinton, who was in his first term in office at the time of the attack, one of the deadliest of its kind ever staged on U.S. soil. “It was 60 minutes of terror,” said Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett.
Jim Furyk had gone 100 starts without winning, a stretch that gnawed at his psyche and challenged his confidence. Furyk won for the second time at RBC Heritage, the other coming in 2010 in what turned out to be the best year of his career. He was 0-of-9 when leading tournaments after three rounds since that Tour Championship victory. For Kisner, it was his best finish on the PGA Tour.
|Life or death? Boston bomber's trial turns to sentencing||Blackhawks beat Predators 4-2 for 2-1 series lead (Yahoo Sports)|
By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is set to return to court on Tuesday for the next phase of his trial, when prosecutors will argue that he should be sentenced to death for his role in the deadly attack in 2013. In sharp contrast to the guilt phase of the trial, when lawyers for the ethnic Chechen defendant did not contest that their client had killed three people and injured 264 in the bombing, the next four weeks are expected to feature emotional testimony from both sides as Tsarnaev fights for his life. The question of whether Tsarnaev, 21, should live or die is highly controversial around Boston. Polls have shown that a plurality of area residents, 49 percent, prefer a life sentence, and family members of two of the people he killed have also spoken out against executing him.
|Marian Hossa was everywhere. Jonathan Toews powered Chicago to a big second period, and Brandon Saad had a key play for the Blackhawks. Chicago's skilled top line found plenty of room to roam with Shea Weber out with an injury. Toews had a goal and an assist, Hossa had two assists in a dazzling performance, and the Blackhawks beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Sunday for a 2-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.|

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.
