|Official: Colorado gunman made 'no more baby parts' comment||Georgia's Richt stepping down following 'mutual' decision (Yahoo Sports)|
Suspect Robert Lewis Dear apparently referred to Planned Parenthood's health services, which include abortion, and its role in delivering fetal tissue to researchers.
ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt is stepping down after 15 seasons in what is being called a ''mutual'' decision.
|Colo. Springs attack put GOP 2016 hopefuls in ‘politically uncomfortable’ position||Mayfield leads No. 5 Oklahoma past No. 9 Oklahoma St., 58-23 (Yahoo Sports)|
The motive for a shooting that took place outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado on Friday still isn’t clear, but all three of the top Democratic presidential candidates quickly rushed to express their support for the organization.
Oklahoma took the Big 12 title and likely a spot in the College Football Playoff - and did at the expense of rival Oklahoma State in a Bedlam blowout. Baker Mayfield threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and the No. 5 Sooners beat the No. 9 Cowboys 58-23 on Saturday night. ''There's a lot of tension in the air,'' Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas, who intercepted two passes and returned one for a touchdown, said.
|Earth is a wilder, warmer place since last climate deal made||No. 13 Stanford rallies past No. 4 Notre Dame 38-36 (Yahoo Sports)|
PARIS (AP) — This time, it's a hotter, waterier, wilder Earth that world leaders are trying to save.
Hogan threw four touchdown passes and drove the 13th-ranked Cardinal to the winning 45-yard field goal by Conrad Ukropina on the last play of a 38-36 victory over No. 4 Notre Dame in a playoff elimination game Saturday night. ''This was the best,'' Hogan said. Stanford did just that.
|Planned Parenthood says Colorado shooter opposed abortion||Warriors run NBA-record start to 18-0, beat Kings 120-101 (Yahoo Sports)|
By Keith Coffman COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - Planned Parenthood said on Sunday that news reports that the gunman who attacked its Colorado health clinic had uttered "no more baby parts" during his arrest showed that the suspect was motivated by an anti-abortion agenda. The remark attributed to the 57-year-old suspect, identified by police as Robert Lewis Dear, was an apparent reference to Planned Parenthood's abortion activities and its role in delivering fetal tissue to medical researchers, a hot button issue in the 2016 race for the presidency. "We now know the man responsible for the tragic shooting at PP's health center in Colorado was motivated by opposition to safe and legal abortion," the organization said on Twitter.
Stephen Curry scored 19 points in Golden State's NBA-record 18th straight win at the start of a season, but what he didn't do against the Sacramento Kings was just as important to the defending champion Warriors. ''I'm sure Steph doesn't like it,'' Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said. Curry, who scored 17 pf his points in the first quarter, said he understood it made sense for him to sit out the entire fourth period of the blowout with the Warriors about to embark on a two-week, seven-game road trip.
|Police capture suspect in shooting of Pennsylvania officer||LSU's Miles survives, but knows he has work to do (Yahoo Sports)|
|Police searched six hours for Ray Shetler Jr., 31, who is suspected of shooting St. Clair Township Officer Lloyd Reed at a residence in New Florence, Pennsylvania, on Saturday night, state police said in a statement. Pennsylvania State Police captured Shetler without incident, police said. Reed, who had more than 20 years experience as an officer including five years with the St. Clair Police Department, died from gunshot wounds, police said.|
Les Miles looked to his right, beyond a crowd of reporters to where his wife, Kathy, and their four children had been waiting anxiously for the 62-year-old coach to emerge from LSU's locker room. After coaching the Tigers to a 19-7 triumph over Texas A&M on Saturday night, Miles learned that he'd survived an apparent behind-the-scenes campaign to oust him - at least for now. If Miles wants to see his current contract through to its 2019 expiration, LSU likely will have to be better than it was this season.

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.
