One police officer and two civilians were killed and nine people wounded, police say.
The Golden State Warriors rained 3s in the desert and pushed their NBA-record start to 17-0. Stephen Curry scored 41 points in three quarters and the Warriors made a franchise-record 22 3-pointers (in 38 attempts) during their highest-scoring game of the season, a 135-116 rout of the Phoenix Suns on Friday night. Golden State fell one shy of the NBA record for 3s set by Orlando on March 9, 2009, and matched by Houston, against the Warriors, on Feb. 5, 2013.
|Nearly 1,000 'security risks' denied entry to France since Paris attacks||Harden scores 50 as Rockets beat winless 76ers 116-114 (Yahoo Sports)|
Nearly 1,000 people thought to pose security risks have been denied entry into France since stepped-up border controls were imposed ahead of the COP21 climate talks on November 13, just hours before the Paris attacks, the interior minister said Saturday. The aim of the boosted controls is to enable the authorities to reinforce security as the COP21 climate talks officially get under way in Paris on Monday and also to confront the high terrorist threat level facing the country, Cazeneuve said, adding that they would make any necessary arrests.
With Philadelphia desperately for its first win, James Harden took over for the Houston Rockets. Harden had 50 points, nine rebounds and eight assists, and the Rockets beat the lowly 76ers 116-114 on Friday night. Philadelphia moved one loss away from matching the New Jersey Nets' NBA-worst mark of 18 losses to open a season.
|Hollande, activists gear up for critical climate talks||No. 3 Hawkeyes go to 12-0 with 28-20 victory over Nebraska (Yahoo Sports)|
French President Francois Hollande met with environmental groups Saturday, pushing for an ambitious global deal to reduce man-made emissions blamed for global warming _ with emphasis on helping developing countries adapt to a changing world.
Iowa certainly didn't change the minds of critics who say the Hawkeyes don't look the part of a national championship contender. ''We're not trying to be pretty, we're trying to be productive,'' coach Kirk Ferentz said. The Hawkeyes (8-0 Big Ten, No. 4 CFP) locked arms and ran to the south end zone to pick up the Heroes Trophy that goes to the winner of this game.
|Police name suspect in Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting||Boykin, No. 15 TCU beat No. 7 Baylor 28-21 in double OT (Yahoo Sports)|
By Keith Coffman COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - The suspect in a deadly shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic was named on Saturday as Robert L. Dear, 57, the Colorado Springs Police public affairs' section said in a Tweet. The gunman who stormed the clinic on Friday killed three people and wounded nine others before surrendering to police after a bloody siege lasting several hours inside the facility, authorities said. The assailant in Colorado Springs, Colorado's second largest city, was armed with a rifle when he entered the clinic - a site repeatedly targeted for protests by anti-abortion activists - and opened fire shortly before noon on Friday, authorities said.
Trevone Boykin had quite a closing act in his final home game for No. 15 TCU. A 12-round fight really, to be honest,'' said Boykin, who was once the Heisman Trophy front-runner. TCU (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) got to 10 wins for the 10th time in the past 14 seasons under coach Gary Patterson, and a measure of revenge for a 61-58 loss in Waco last season while knocking the Bears (9-2, 6-2, No. 7 CFP) out of contention for a third consecutive Big 12 title.
|Obama says U.S. has to 'do something' about guns after Colorado shooting||Romo out for year after 2nd collarbone injury of season (Yahoo Sports)|
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Saturday the United States needs to "do something" to make it harder for criminals to get guns after a shooting in Colorado Springs on Friday left three dead and nine injured.
Tony Romo knew he was risking another left collarbone injury by coming back eight weeks after breaking it. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on his radio show Friday that Romo would sit out the remaining five games with a small fracture in the same collarbone that had already sidelined him for seven games. ''The hard part is playing when you're trying not to get hurt, which is silly,'' Romo said after he threw three interceptions and Carolina returned two of them for touchdowns before the injury.

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.
