|Reporting Hurricane Katrina: How covering the story swept journalists into the drama||Illinois fires coach Tim Beckman 1 week before season opener (Yahoo Sports)|
|Journalists are observers. We are trained to help others by reporting stories, not by becoming part of them. Hurricane Katrina, however, tested those boundaries for many of us.|
Illinois abruptly fired coach Tim Beckman one week before the start of the season Friday after an investigation of player mistreatment allegations revealed he had meddled in medical issues and inappropriately treated athletes who remained on scholarship after leaving the team. With three of his programs under scrutiny, athletic director Mike Thomas said the timing was unfortunate but ''it was in the best interests of student-athletes to act now.'' Thomas said the final report of the investigation would not be completed and publicly released until during the season. Illinois said Beckman will not receive $3.1 million remaining on the final two years of his original five-year contract or the $743,000 buyout.
|Former prep school student convicted of sex charges||Mariners fire general manager Jack Zduriencik (Yahoo Sports)|
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A graduate of an exclusive New England prep school was cleared of felony rape but convicted of misdemeanor sex offenses Friday against a 15-year-old freshman girl in a case that exposed a campus tradition in which seniors competed to see how many younger students they could have sex with.
A year to the day after praising Jack Zduriencik as he was rewarded with a contract extension, Seattle Mariners President Kevin Mather found himself speaking with ownership this week on all the areas he believed the club was lacking. It was clear to Mather that Zduriencik's time as Seattle's general manager was at an end and his regret was not making a change sooner. ''I was so optimistic about 2015 at the major league level that I waited too long to start asking myself and others the tough questions about what is going on here,'' Mather said.
|Gunman in on-air deaths remembered as 'professional victim'||Al Arbour, who coached Isles to 4 Cup titles, dies at 82 (Yahoo Sports)|
ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — The man who was news director during Vester Flanagan's rocky tenure at Virginia station WDBJ-TV described him as someone who constantly saw himself being victimized by others.
Al Arbour, the bespectacled gentleman of a coach who molded a young and talented New York Islanders franchise into an NHL dynasty that won four straight Stanley Cups in the early 1980s, has died. The Islanders confirmed Arbour's death in a release issued Friday afternoon. Arbour had been in declining health, battling Parkinson's disease and dementia, and living in a long-term care facility in Florida.
|Former New Hampshire prep school student not guilty of rape||Zach Johnson in 3-way tie at Barclays (Yahoo Sports)|
Owen Labrie, 19, was found not guilty of three felony counts of sexually assaulting a fellow student at St. Paul's School in Concord. Labrie closed his eyes and began to sob as the first verdict, finding him guilty of computer-related seduction, was read but regained his composure as the jury forewoman read out the three not guilty verdicts.
EDISON, N.J. (AP) -- Zach Johnson's putter warmed up and put him in a three-way tie for the lead among early starters Friday at The Barclays.
|Chicago school closure battle intensifies with hunger strike||Cubs-Dodgers Preview (Yahoo Sports)|
A long-standing battle between activists and the City of Chicago over school closures in minority neighborhoods has intensified with a dozen protesters entering their twelfth day of a hunger strike on Friday over a shuttered high school. Camped out on the lawn in front of Dyett High School in South Chicago, the strikers vow to consume only liquids - such as juice and chicken broth - until the city agrees to reopen the school. The protest comes as the Chicago Public Schools, the third-largest school system in the country, cuts 1,400 jobs, seeks a $480 million bailout from the state of Illinois and struggles to beef up underfunded pensions.
|The Los Angeles Dodgers salvaged three games from what could have been a disastrous road trip. On Friday night they will try to squeeze something out of a Clayton Kershaw start. Kershaw will go for his first win in three outings as the first-place Dodgers return home for a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs.|

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.
