Islamic State hostage drama reveals 'chink in the armor'Serena Williams wins 6th Australian, 19th major title (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015 file photo, a passerby is silhouetted against a large TV screen broadcasting a news program in Tokyo reporting on a video posted on YouTube by jihadists on Tuesday, Jan. 27, that purports to show a still photo of Japanese hostage Kenji Goto holding what appears to be a photo of Jordanian pilot 1st Lt. Mu'ath al-Kaseasbeh.

Ukraine peace talks end without agreement: Kiev envoyNFL's Goodell seeks to look past 'tough year,' to future (Yahoo Sports)

Media wait on January 31, 2015 outside the presidential residence in Minsk during talks aimed at ending the fighting in eastern UkrainePeace talks to thrash out a truce agreement between pro-Russian rebels and Ukraine ended without a deal Saturday, Kiev's representative at the talks in Minsk said. Former Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma told Interfax Ukraine news agency the talks had been "thwarted" after top rebel leaders stayed away and their negotiators refused to discuss a plan for an immediate ceasefire. The negotiator for the rebel Donetsk People's Republic, Denis Pushilin, however, blamed Kiev for causing the collapse of the talks and said insurgent leaders would only sign a deal if Kiev's forces halt fire first, Russian news wires reported.

As if wishing made it so, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell described his league - and himself - as having addressed missteps on difficult matters such as domestic violence and being ready to move on. ''As an organization, and as an individual, it's been a tough year,'' Goodell said Friday during his pre-Super Bowl news conference, ''but a year of great progress, and I'm excited about the future.'' Nearing the end of a season he acknowledged was filled with ''plenty of challenges,'' Goodell was asked whether he thought he deserved a pay cut - ''That's up to the owners,'' he replied - and whether he could envision resigning or being fired.

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.
