|3,600 people evacuated as Chile volcano erupts||Harden suspended 1 game for kicking James in the groin (Yahoo Sports)|
Fiery plumes of lava have forced thousands to flee.
The NBA has suspended Houston star James Harden one game without pay for kicking LeBron James in the groin. The All-Stars and Olympic teammates became tangled in the third quarter of Houston's 105-103 victory over Cleveland on Sunday and Harden fell back to the court, then kicked his foot up into James. An angry James said after the game that Harden's kick was ''not a basketball play'' and that the league would probably look at it.
|O'Malley rules out Senate as decision over White House bid looms||No franchise tag for Detroit's Suh as deadline passes (Yahoo Sports)|
Former Maryland Governor and possible Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley said on Tuesday he will not seek the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Barbara Mikulski. O'Malley, who left office in January and has said he is considering a run for the White House, told reporters in an email he hoped other candidates would step up to represent the mid-Atlantic state, but "I will not be one of them." The move allows O'Malley, 52, to keep the door open for a potential presidential campaign. Despite winning two terms as governor in the heavily Democratic State, his future is somewhat complicated by his successor's surprise loss to a Republican in the November election. O'Malley is popular among Democrats and spent much of the last year actively campaigning for fellow liberals across the country, especially in New Hampshire and Iowa, the first two states with presidential nominating contests.
Ndamukong Suh can test the open market when free agency begins March 10 after the Detroit Lions did not use the franchise tag on the star defensive tackle. The deadline for teams to designate franchise or transition players came and went Monday, and the Lions did not say anything publicly about their decision. There was only a report early in the day on the team's website saying the franchise tag's price of around $27 million for Suh proved too daunting. Last month, general manager Martin Mayhew said he was optimistic about getting a deal done with Suh, but the franchise tag may have been the team's best source of leverage, and actually using it could have come at a prohibitive cost.
|LAPD killing lays bare enduring horror of Skid Row||No. 2 Virginia shrugs off slow start, beats Syracuse 59-47 (Yahoo Sports)|
A fatal police shooting raises broader questions about mass homelessness in L.A.
When Virginia coach Tony Bennett glanced up at the Carrier Dome scoreboard as the first half was dwindling, he winced. His second-ranked Cavaliers had made just one field goal in the first 13 minutes and trailed Syracuse by 11 points. We're just either going to sink or swim with these guys.'' The Cavaliers decided to swim some more. After the shakiest of starts, they settled down and carved up Jim Boeheim's 2-3 zone, reeling off a 35-12 spurt spanning halftime and won going away, 59-47, on Monday night.
|Netanyahu goes to Congress||Bulls' Butler out 3 to 6 weeks (Yahoo Sports)|
the Israeli PM will warn of the danger of trusting Iran curb its nuclear ambitions.
The banged up Chicago Bulls will have to get by without another key player, with All-Star guard Jimmy Butler joining former MVP Derrick Rose on the sideline. The Bulls announced Monday that Butler will miss three to six weeks because of a sprained ligament in his left elbow, the latest blow for a team that has rarely been at full strength this season. ''I guess when it rains, it pours,'' veteran Kirk Hinrich said. We've got to find a way.'' Butler, the league leader in minutes per game and the team's top scorer, had an MRI on Monday.
|Hillary Clinton may have broken federal record-keeping laws: NY Times||Cowboys put franchise tag worth $12.8 million on Dez Bryant (Yahoo Sports)|
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have violated federal records laws by using a personal email account for all of her work messages, the New York Times reported on Monday. The newspaper said the likely Democratic presidential candidate conducted all her official business during her four-year tenure at the State Department on a private email account. It added that Clinton, who stepped down as secretary of state in 2013, recently handed over 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department in response to a department effort to comply with record-keeping practices. Regulations at the time Clinton served as secretary of state called for emails on personal accounts to be preserved as well, the paper said.
Dez Bryant will get four more months to work on a long-term deal with the Cowboys and make $12.8 million next year after the team used its franchise tag on the star wide receiver. Bryant led the NFL with a club-record 16 touchdowns in the final year of a rookie contract that paid $11.8 million over five years. The 26-year-old Bryant was the fastest Dallas player to 300 career receptions and second-fastest to 50 touchdowns behind Bob Hayes. The Cowboys also have to decide whether to re-sign running back DeMarco Murray after he had a league-leading 1,845 yards rushing in the final year of his contract.

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.
