While a report by a British judge found that Russian president Vladimir Putin probably approved of the Russian security service’s plan to kill Alexander Litvinenko, a former KGB officer turned Kremlin critic, justice remains far for many other dead, disappeared or jailed Putin critics. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 56 journalists have been killed in Russia since 1992. Here are some of the most prominent Kremlin critics who have been killed or jailed in the last decade: Boris Nemtsov Nemtsov, a prominent critic of Putin who exposed corruption in the government, was gunned down in February near the Kremlin.

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill. Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks. Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

If you’re protecting important personal accounts with nothing more than a few security questions, it may be time for an upgrade. A study from Google recently compared the use of security questions to other account recovery methods like SMS (short text messages) and an alternative email address. It found that true or made-up responses to questions like, “What was your mother’s maiden name?” or specific answers to prompts such as “Favorite Superhero,” “First Car” or “Childhood Phone Number,” weren’t a reliable way to recover or protect an account.
The Great Recession delivered a body blow to our country’s financial equilibrium, and only after years of painfully slow recovery have housing prices begun to stabilize and the unemployment rate steadily fallen.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady took the fight over his “Deflategate” suspension to social media and federal court on Wednesday, and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft backed the three-time Super Bowl MVP, saying “I was wrong to put my faith in the league.” One day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell rejected Brady’s appeal, the star quarterback posted a 507-word statement on Facebook with his firmest denial yet, writing: “I did nothing wrong.” Kraft followed with an unscheduled address to the media gathered at Gillette Stadium for the opening of training camp and the team’s defense of its fourth Super Bowl championship. “It is completely incomprehensible to me that the league continues to take steps to disparage one of its all-time great players, and a man for whom I have the utmost respect,” the Patriots owner said

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The academic performance of student athletes will be a factor in how coaches and athletic directors at University of California campuses are evaluated and compensated under a new policy approved by university President Janet Napolitano and made public Friday. The incentive-pay policy scheduled to be discussed by the university’s governing board on Wednesday holds that athletic directors and coaches with winning records will be ineligible for bonuses unless their teams maintain a minimum level of academic achievement based on how many students receiving athletic scholarships remain in school with a full-time course load while maintaining a 2.0 grade point average.
