|Bloody Sundays: Violence against peaceful protesters from Selma to Belfast||NCAA suspends coach Jim Boeheim for Syracuse violations (Yahoo Sports)|
President Obama plans to visit Selma to mark the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.
The NCAA denounced one of the country's most decorated basketball programs Friday, suspending Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim for nine conference games next year and outlining a decade-long series of violations that included academic misconduct, improper benefits, and drug-policy failures. The governing body, saying the school lost control of its athletic department, placed Syracuse on probation for five years for breaking with the ''most fundamental core values of the NCAA.'' The bulk of the violations concerned athletic department officials interfering with academics and making sure star players stayed eligible. The basketball team must vacate wins in which ineligible players participated. ''The behavior in this case, which placed the desire to achieve success on the basketball court over academic integrity, demonstrated clearly misplaced institutional priorities,'' the NCAA said.
|Could an app from Umbrella Revolution be used in presidential election?||Lynch returning to Seahawks with new contract (Yahoo Sports)|
FireChat wants to move beyond its status as an off-the-Web resource to a messaging service that can be used on the go, and online, to create massive chat rooms in which campaigns can communicate directly with their supporters over their smartphones.
Marshawn Lynch is receiving a hefty raise for at least one more season in the Seattle Seahawks backfield. Lynch signed a two-year extension with the Seahawks on Friday that keeps him under contract with Seattle through the 2017 season, but more importantly includes a massive raise for the 2015 season. Lynch agreed to his new deal Friday after meeting with Seahawks officials. At the NFL combine last month in Indianapolis, Seattle coach Pete Carroll acknowledged having made a significant offer to Lynch for 2015.
|Sen. Menendez: I've behaved appropriately in office||AP source: Jets agree to acquire Brandon Marshall from Bears (Yahoo Sports)|
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, under federal investigation for his relationship with a Florida doctor and political donor, defiantly said Friday he has always been honest in office even as a person familiar with the matter said he's expected to face criminal charges soon.
Brandon Marshall is on the move, heading from the Chicago Bears to the New York Jets. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that the Jets agreed to acquire the star wide receiver on Friday, pending a physical exam. The trade, the first by new Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan, is for an unspecified draft pick, according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither team had announced the deal. The trade cannot become official until the NFL's new league year begins next Tuesday.
|Ted Cruz’s Texas two-step: Hired gun for Google||Colts parting ways with longtime standout WR Reggie Wayne (Yahoo Sports)|
Facing an investigation in 2010, the Web behemoth turned to an unlikely ally for help.
Indianapolis gave Reggie Wayne the answer he didn't want to hear. Calling it a sad day, team owner Jim Irsay announced Friday that the Colts would part ways with one of the greatest receivers in franchise history. Wayne will become an unrestricted free agent next week. Despite having one of the most storied careers in franchise history, the 36-year-old Wayne was slowing down.
|Battling America’s other PTSD crisis||Rangers to send ace Darvish for MRI exam on sore triceps (Yahoo Sports)|
The fight that started Keith Davis on a path to a new life began when he was buying marijuana. It was early afternoon on Aug. 8. As he tells it, he was in at his usual hangout in North Central Philadelphia, in front of an abandoned church at 18th and Ridge. He was taking too long mulling over his purchase, and another man got impatient and told him to go buy his stuff somewhere else.
The folks in the Rangers front office would be forgiven for feeling a little bit uneasy these days. Three-time All-Star Yu Darvish was headed for an MRI exam Friday after leaving his spring training debut the previous day with tightness in his right triceps. Darvish experienced the pain while warming up in the bullpen and it did not go away over the course of 12 pitches. ''We had a rough season last year in terms of injuries, but there's no sentiment of 'here we go again,''' assistant general manager Thad Levine said.

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.
