Dale Earnhardt Jr. Wins 2nd Daytona 500 After Long Rain Delay

Ukraine interim government issues arrest warrant for Yanukovich

The information I provided was what we had at the moment. Rice said No, when Gregory asked whether she had any regrets about her statements. She also said nobody in the administration intended to mislead the public but acknowledged some of her information was inaccurate. That information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100 percent correct,” Rice said. “But the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false.And I think that that’s been amply demonstrated.” She was, at the time, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a top candidate to become secretary of state. However, Rice withdrew herself from consideration in the wake of the attacks on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, after the firestorm of criticism she received for her response. Rice said Sunday she didnt know whether her responses killed her chances of getting the top U.S. diplomatic post.

The victory ended a streak of futility at Daytona International Speedway, where he finished second in three of the previous four 500s. “Winning this race is the greatest feeling that you could feel in this sport besides accepting the trophy for the championship,” said Earnhardt, who climbed from his car in Victory Lane and hugged every member of his Hendrick Motorsports crew. “I didn’t know if I’d ever get the chance to feel it again and it feels just as good.” As he crossed the finish line in his No. 88 Chevrolet, the few who withstood a rain delay of 6 hours, 22 minutes screaming their support, Earnhardt euphorically radioed his crew, “This is better than the first one!” He was met by Rick Hendrick after his victory lap, and the team owner climbed into the driver’s window for a ride to Victory Lane. Rain stopped the race about 45 minutes after it began for a delay of more than six hours. When it resumed, Earnhardt dominated at the track where his father was killed in an accident on the last lap of the 2001 race. But it got chaotic as it neared the conclusion, with 42 lead changes and four multi-car accidents.

Taliban says talks with US over captive soldier halted

Afghanistan is in the middle of a presidential campaign ahead of an April 5 election. Two-term President Hamid Karzai cannot run again for office under the Afghan constitution. The U.S. State Department has refused to acknowledge the negotiations, but the U.S. official previously told the AP that indirect talks were underway. In response to the Taliban statement Sunday, U.S. Embassy spokesman in Afghanistan Robert Hilton said: “Sgt. Bergdahl has been gone far too long, however we can’t discuss the efforts we’re taking to obtain his return.” Efforts at a swap are also seen as a concession to Karzai. Washington would like to see him back away from his refusal to sign a security pact that is necessary for the U.S.

Captain America Trailer Teases Huge Nick Fury Spoiler

Captain America

He is THE spy, honestly. In the comic book world, Fury has been known to fake his death, and do it very well. Whether he did here or not is uncertain, as I have not been given special tickets to see the movie early. The thing is, just knowing the Fury character, its obvious that nothing is set in stone with him. While Fury is getting older and may be considering a retirement in the future, we all know that he is a massive part of the Marvel Universe. That means that there is no possible way Fury is going anywhere any time soon. Just going off of Agent Coolson theory alone, death isnt exactly a stoppage to the play of the Marvel franchise.

Hundreds more were injured. As his loyal riot police disappeared from the streets Thursday night fearing vengeance and prosecutions, Yanukovich also went into hiding, his whereabouts unknown. In a video statement Saturday, a nervous-looking Yanukovich claimed that he still remained in power and was just taking a trip to the eastern regions, hitherto loyal to him, in order to decide what to do next. By the time the video surfaced on the Internet, however, Yanukovich had been officially deposed by parliament. On Sunday, his own ruling party denounced him as a traitor. We condemn Yanukovich’s flight and lack of guts, and we condemn treachery, read a statement published Sunday on the Party of the Regions’ official website. We condemn the criminal orders which set up ordinary people and police officers. Also on Sunday, parliament turned over presidential powers to its recently appointed speaker, opposition party leader Oleksander Turchinov.

3, 2012: Cars surround a Chick-Fil-A restaurant during lunch time in Decatur, Georgia.Reuters Several Chick-fil-A employees in Florida — including a manager who drove 200 miles out of his way — are being credited with helping a couple find their runaway teenage daughter. According to USA Today, Steve and Tammy Harp discovered a note left by their daughter, Kaitlyn, 16, saying she had run away with a 19-year-old man she met online. The Harps found an Instagram photo of the couple, and the man was wearing a Chick-fil-A shirt. They went to their local Chick-fil-A restaurant in Jacksonville to ask if anyone had seen the two or if the man worked there, the report said. The store’s managers put the Harps in touch with another store in Yulee, and that franchise’s manager posted the Instagram photo on Facebook for Chick-fil-A operators across the state to see. Within two hours, a Chick-fil-A manager in Winter Haven recognized the man, called the Harps and told the man to have Kaitlyn Harp call home. Elio Florin, the manager at the Winter Haven restaurant, drove the girl about 200 miles back home to Jacksonville. “Tears were shed in our driveway this morning,” Tammy Harp told USA Today. “[Florin] could not go to bed without resting, knowing that she was home safe.”
