Since last week's school shooting in Parkland, Fla., the number of threats of violence against schools across the country has increased.
Educators School Safety Network says it recorded about 50 threats a day on average since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people died.
The Ohio-based national organization that tracks school threats says that compares to about 10 threats a day on average.
Violent incidents or threats have occurred in 48 of the 50 states so far this school year, according to the network, with 10 states accounting for 48 percent of all the threats and incidents that have occurred so far.
The organization says California leads the list of schools that have had an increase in threats. Pennsylvania, New York, Florida and Illinois round out the top five.
The latest data comes as President Trump, Congress, state and local officials are grappling with how to stop school shootings.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell, who heads the nation's largest sheriff's department, says there is a "need to take every potential threat seriously."
Last week, two days after the Florida shooting, a school security officer overheard a student threatening to open fire at El Camino High School in Whittier, Calif.
Marino Chavez said he heard a 17-year-old male student say he was "going to shoot up the school sometime in the next three weeks."
The student claimed it was a joke, but a search of his home turned up two AR-15 rifles, 90 high-capacity magazines and two handguns, as The Associated Press reports:
"His 28-year-old brother, Daniel Eriberto Barcenas, told deputies that he purchased the guns while serving in the Army in Texas. One of the rifles wasn't registered, which is a felony in California, McDonnell said.
"The brother is facing charges of possession of an assault weapon, importing a high-capacity magazine and other violations.
"The brothers lived with their parents, and there was no indication the parents committed a crime, authorities said.
Since the Florida mass shooting, the FBI has come under heavy criticism for not acting on a tip regarding threats made by the accused shooter, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz.
The early intervention in the California case showed the importance of heeding early warning signs. "The sheriff's department can only respond if they are told," school security officer Chavez said.
The threat at El Camino High School is the latest in California, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"On Monday, a 27-year-old Norco man was arrested after he posted on Facebook that he intended to shoot people at a local community college. Police searched Jacob Ryan McBain's home [turning] up two loaded AR-15 rifles, two loaded handguns and a large amount of ammunition in his bedroom, authorities said.
Inglewood police on Monday became aware of a social media post 'indicating that students attending a specific Inglewood school were at risk of being targeted by a shooter,' according to a news release.
And on Wednesday morning, Long Beach Unified School District Supt. Chris Steinhauser alerted parents of an unconfirmed threat that an attack was being planned at Long Beach Polytechnic High School."
In St. Mary's County, Md., two teenage boys are facing charges for allegedly making threats of mass violence. Dozens of weapons, including semi-automatic rifles, handguns and ammunition, were recovered from the home of one of the suspects.
And there were more incidents across the country, according to the AP:
"An Oregon high school student was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of disorderly conduct after police say he sent a social media message to a girl at another high school reading, "I am the shooter!" The 15-year-old boy said the message was a joke.
"A Montana high school student was charged Tuesday with intimidation and assault with a weapon over numerous threats to "shoot up the school ." Court records say the 18-year-old told investigators he was joking and regretted frightening students.
"A Vermont teenager pleaded not guilty Friday to attempted aggravated murder and other offenses after writing in a diary that he had "big plans" to kill as many as he could at his former high school.
"In Northern California, police said they recovered a firearm from the home of an 11-year-old boy who had barricaded himself in a Santa Cruz classroom Tuesday and planned to harm specific students."

Canadian player refused to wear silver medal after receiving it

It's one of the worst silver medals to win.
In order to win it, you have to lose the gold.
Canada's women's hockey team lost 3-2 to the U. S. in a shootout to end its streak of consecutive gold medals at the Winter Olympics at four.
The women's hockey team from Canada was in tears after the dramatic ending. It took six rounds of a shootout for the U. S. to win. Jocelyne Lamoureux-Morando scored in the sixth round of the shootout, and Maddie Rooney made the game-winning save.
Canada had to watch as the U. S. celebrated its first gold medal in 20 years. They aren't supposed to leave during the celebration because they receive their silver medals soon after.
Jocelyne Larocque wanted nothing to do with her silver medal.
As soon as it was placed around her neck, Larocque took it off and just held it.
Canada's Jocelyne Larocque took off her silver medal immediately after receiving it. #WinterOlympics
Some thought it was poor sportsmanship.
I understand the disappointment, but think Larocque immediately taking her medal off is in poor taste. You ladies should be (eventually will be) very proud of yourselves. 🇨🇦🇨🇦
My apologies, it was Jocelyne Larocque. She still has a gold already and shouldn't be such a bad sport about it. That was like the least Canadian thing to do, ever.
Some were okay with it.
Give Larocque a break. It’s her medal. She can do as she pleases. We have NO idea how silver feels after chasing gold. 🇨🇦
It's tough, and no one should give her too much grief about it. But hopefully she puts it back on soon and realizes what a great accomplishment it is.

Man killed by homeowner after shooting up Eatonville home has been identified

An 18-year-old man killed by an Eatonville-area homeowner who returned fire after the man shot up his mobile home has been identified as Bryson Smith.
Pierce County sheriff’s investigators said Smith and two friends went to shoot up a home in the 43100 block of Mountain Highway East about 7:15 a.m. Wednesday in retaliation for an incident involving the homeowner’s son.
After being warned by his son about Smith’s alleged threat to “shoot up the house,” the homeowner armed himself and went to the front door of his home.
That’s when shots were fired from a white car into a bedroom of the trailer, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.
The homeowner returned fire, striking Smith. He then called 911.
Smith, of Puyallup, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two other people in the car, a 31-year-old man and 17-year-old boy, fled and were arrested nearby 20 minutes later.
The man was booked into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder. The boy was booked into Remann Hall Juvenile Detention Center.
Prosecutors are expected to decide Thursday whether to file criminal charges.
“The people that came up here we believe came up here with the intent to fire upon the people that were in the residence,” Troyer said. “Fortunately, the people in the residence aren’t hurt, but the people that showed up suffered the brunt of the damage.”
Detectives are still trying to determine what the original incident involving Smith and the homeowner’s son was about.

Gisin holds off Shiffrin to win Olympic Alpine combined

Michelle Gisin had been perplexed by the slalom for some time, showing a flair for the discipline but rarely putting together an exceptional full run.
That is until gold was on the line.
The Swiss ski racer captured the women's Olympic Alpine combined on Thursday with an aggressive slalom run to beat Mikaela Shiffrin.
Lindsey Vonn, the leader after the downhill portion, made a mistake early in the slalom and didn't finish in what was likely the final race of her Winter Games career.
Gisin finished in a combined time of 2 minutes, 20.90 seconds to eclipse the silver-medalist Shiffrin by 0.97 seconds in overcast conditions and with the artificial lights turned on for extra visibility. Wendy Holdener of Switzerland was 1.44 seconds back to earn the bronze.
"I tried to put my heart into that run," Gisin said. "It's insane."
And another medal for the Gisin household. Her older sister, Dominique, finished in a tie for downhill gold four years ago in Sochi.
"The best ever. It makes everything more beautiful," Michelle Gisin said. "She gave her all. I gave my all. We did it."
Speaking of medals, add one more to Shiffrin's burgeoning collection. She won Olympic gold in the giant slalom a week ago and captured the slalom title at the 2014 Sochi Games.
"It's a nice way to end the Olympics," said Shiffrin, who narrowly missed a podium spot in the slalom, finishing fourth. "I started off with a bang and ending with a medal on the podium is really cool."
After crossing the finish line, Gisin celebrated with exuberance as Shiffrin clapped for her. Gisin was in third position after the downhill leg and had a 1.21-second advantage over Shiffrin.
Gisin was able to hold off Shiffrin, who's one of the world's best slalom skiers. It shouldn't be a surprise, given that Gisin came up as a slalom racer and captured a silver medal in the combined at the world championships last February.
Holdener added bronze to the silver she won in the slalom last week. To be on the podium with a friend and teammate? A priceless experience.
"It's so nice to celebrate with her," Holdener said of Gisin. "She just skied so good today."
Going last and wearing her neon-colored shin guards, Vonn hooked a tip on the gate, ending her day.
"That's skiing," she said.
Vonn also led after the downhill leg at the 2010 Vancouver Games. She didn't finish the slalom that time.
Asked before the slalom race exactly how much slalom training she's done lately, Vonn smiled, curling her index finger and thumb to make a "0."
"I took one warmup run going to the slalom inspection in Lenzerheide," Vonn said, alluding to her fourth-place finish at the World Cup stop in Switzerland in the combined last month. "So those are my last two slalom runs. And before that I did one day of slalom training before Christmas. So that's the extent of my slalom training this year."
This was very likely the first and only time Vonn and Shiffrin will meet in an Olympic race.
At 33, Vonn's already the oldest female Alpine ski racer to earn a medal with her bronze in the downhill on Wednesday. That goes with the gold from the 2010 Games. She didn't compete at the Sochi Games because of a knee injury.
"I take a lot of great memories with me. I've had such a great experience with my teammates here," Vonn said. "When you're older you have a different appreciation for life and the experiences you've had. I greatly appreciate my team, everyone who helped get me here, my friends and family.
"It's been a great ride," she said.
The combined was originally slated to be held Friday, but it was moved up a day due to the weather forecast of high wind. With the sun darting in and out and a light snow falling for the slalom, the artificial lights lining the course were switched on.
Down the road, Andre Myhrer of Sweden captured Olympic gold medal in men's slalom. Big favorite Marcel Hirscher didn't finish the first run as the Austrian great leaves these Olympics with two gold medals.
The last race on the Alpine side will be Saturday with the team event making its Olympic debut. Many of the top racers such as Hirscher, Vonn and Shiffrin are planning to skip the race — and another chance at a medal — to prepare for the resumption of the World Cup schedule.

Former Spymaster to Lead North Korea’s Olympic Ceremony Delegation

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said on Thursday that a high-ranking official, who many in the South believe orchestrated a deadly attack in 2010, would lead a delegation to Sunday’s Winter Olympics closing ceremony in the South, another sign the two Koreas are trying to work out a road map toward improving ties.
The North’s delegation will be led by Kim Yong-chol, a vice chairman of the ruling Workers’ Party’s Central Committee. The eight-member delegation will start a three-day trip on Sunday that will include attending the closing ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korean officials said.
Mr. Kim’s trip follows another recent visit to the South by senior North Korean officials. Earlier this month, Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, attended the Games’ opening ceremony and met with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea. In that meeting she invited Mr. Moon to a summit meeting in the North on behalf of her brother.
Also scheduled to attend Sunday’s closing ceremony is President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who will lead the American delegation. United States officials said Ms. Trump had no plans to meet anyone representing the North.
When visiting South Korea earlier this month to attend the Games’ opening ceremony, Vice President Mike Pence had planned to sit down with Kim Yo-jong in a meeting arranged by South Korea, but the North Koreans backed out at the last minute, according to American officials.
The North Koreans’ presence at the closing ceremony raises the possibility of a chance encounter between the North’s delegation and Ms. Trump.Mr. Pence and Ms. Kim sat just feet apart in a V. I. P. box at the opening ceremony but they did not acknowledge one another, their frosty attitudes symbolic of the hostile relations between their countries.
Kim Yong-chol, a former head of the North’s main intelligence agency, now leads a Workers’ Party department in charge of relations with South Korea. He was widely believed to have helped engineer the sinking of a South Korean naval ship in 2010, which killed 46 sailors. Mr. Kim had been banned from visiting the South for his alleged involvement in the North’s military provocations and nuclear weapons development.
Still, the South Korean government said on Thursday that it would allow Mr. Kim to lead the delegation across the border.
“We expect the high-level delegation’s participation in the closing ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics to help advance the process of settling peace on the Korean Peninsula including the improvement of inter-Korean relations and denuclearization,” the Unification Ministry, a South Korean government agency, said in a statement. “Against this backdrop, from this standpoint, we will accept the visit of North Korea’s high-level delegation to the South.”
Although he is a longtime advocate for dialogue, President Moon has not yet decided whether he would meet with Kim Jong-un. He said he would meet the North Korean leader only if he was assured that their meeting could produce progress in helping end North Korea’s nuclear weapons programs.
Kim Yong-chol, who will lead Sunday’s delegation, is expected to meet with Mr. Moon to discuss the details of a potential summit meeting.
Until now, North Korea has refused to discuss its pursuit of nuclear weapons with the South, insisting that it was an issue between Pyongyang and the United States.
Mr. Moon is also eager to persuade the United State and North Korea to talk to each other to defuse tensions over the North’s nuclear weapons and missile programs. So far, neither the United States nor North Korea have expressed much interest in dialogue.
Kim Yong-chol is a familiar figure to South Korean negotiators. In 2014,Mr. Kim, who is also a military general, led a delegation to discuss ending hostilities after North and South Korean soldiers exchanged fire across the border.
In 2010, when two North Korean agents were caught in the South while on a mission to assassinate a high-ranking defector from the North, they said they were dispatched by Mr. Kim’s General Bureau of Reconnaissance, the North’s main spy agency, South Korean officials said. The spies told South Korean authorities that Mr. Kim personally assigned them to the assassination mission, throwing them a dinner party before they left for the South.

Remembering Billy Graham and the huge crowds he once drew in Sacramento

Evangelist Billy Graham’s death Wednesday was felt by millions of people around the globe, including thousands of Sacramentans who attended his crusades here.
Among them was Jim Holst, outreach pastor at Bayside, a nondenominational church that has six campuses in the Sacramento region hosting about 20,000 parishioners a week. In 1995, Holst served on the executive committee for Graham’s Sacramento crusade, a five-night event held at Arco Arena.
“My wife and I had the privilege of meeting him,” said Holst, 61. “My wife got to say thank you (to Graham) for coming to Oakland in 1971, an event which changed her life at 15. He looked at her and said in his famous Southern accent, ‘I remember that well.’ He was giving us his full attention like we were the only people in the room.”
Holst said there was nothing ostentatious about Graham, who conducted crusades – essentially large-scale revival meetings – in 185 countries and territories over his 60-year career. Despite being one of the most famous and influential Christian leaders, Graham “was just a gentle, humble spirit” in person, Holst said.
Holst said Graham was instrumental in his religious development. While attending Cal Poly in 1976, he had traveled with other students to see Graham speak in front of 17,000 people in Urbana, Ill. Holst said he left that event feeling called to the ministry because of Graham’s gospel.
“He just shined when he spoke,” Holst said. “His message was so simple and strong. He had the spirit of humility and courage.”
By 1989, Holst was working with Youth For Christ, an organization Graham helped create in 1948. He was assigned the role of youth chairman. In that capacity, he later rallied youth groups to attend Graham’s Sacramento crusade at Arco Arena in October 1995.
The event ended up drawing more people than were expected. “An estimated 45,000 people showed up the first night,” Holst said, even though only 18,000 people were permitted inside. Organizers set up large TV screens outside where people could watch Graham and others speak.
“I heard his speech each of the five nights,” Holst said. “It was a simple message that there’s a God that knows you and loves you, you can receive forgiveness and your best days are ahead.”
What made Graham’s message so powerful, Holst said, “was it didn’t matter your age, your faith background, your political background. He would respect all people.”
Graham also did his homework, Holst recalled. “He got The Sacramento Bee a year ahead to read about the issues that matter to Sacramento.”
Graham, at a press conference before the Sacramento event, even invited the Unabomber to attend. Theodore “Ted” Kaczynski was behind a bombing campaign that killed three people – including two Sacramentans – and injured dozens of others. (Kaczynski was captured in January 1996.)
“(Graham) was trying to change every life and stop the guy from doing bad things,” Holst said.
By the end of his five-day run, more than 170,000 people had attended Graham’s Sacramento crusade, his third in the Capital City.
While in Sacramento, Graham, who during his career counseled U. S. presidents ranging from Harry Truman to Barack Obama, found time to meet with then-Gov. Pete Wilson.
The Bee reported that on Oct. 18 Graham appeared with Wilson, a Republican, and quipped: “It’s great to be back in Sacramento. I notice the Capitol is still the same. The squirrels are still here. I notice some of them look like Democrats.”
Holst, who came to Bayside in 2001, said the church’s ministry strongly has been shaped by Graham and his message of inclusion. “We kind of model our church after Billy Graham’s belief that we don’t care about your background or political views, we just have a simple message we want to share with you.”
Holst recalled that Graham once said that when he dies, he only cares what one person will say about him and that’s Jesus. “I hope he will say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant,’ ” Holst remembered Graham saying.
With the news of Graham’s passing, Holst said he found himself thinking, “What a great day for Billy Graham,” he said. “After working so hard he gets to see Jesus face to face. What joy he must be feeling now.”

IOC strips Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky of Olympic bronze medal

Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky has been stripped of his Olympic bronze medal after admitting to a doping violation at the Pyeongchang Games.
Krushelnitsky tested positive for the banned substance meldonium, which is believed to help blood circulation, after winning bronze in mixed doubles with his wife, Anastasia Bryzgalova.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport announced the sanction Thursday, saying Krushelnitsky's results had been disqualified and his credential was withdrawn.
CAS says Krushelnitsky accepted a provisional suspension beyond the games but "reserved his rights to seek the elimination or reduction of any period of ineligibility based on 'no fault or negligence'" following the conclusion of the games.
Russia was banned from the Pyeongchang Olympics over widespread doping at the Sochi Games four years ago, but 168 Russians were allowed by the IOC to compete as "Olympic Athletes from Russia" under the Olympic flag.

The Latest: Shiffrin gets silver in combined, Vonn skies out

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — The Latest on the Pyeongchang Olympics (all times local):
3:45 p.m.
Michelle Gisin of Switzerland has won the women's Alpine combined with an aggressive slalom run to edge American Mikaela Shiffrin at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Lindsey Vonn, the leader after the downhill portion, made a mistake early in the slalom Thursday and didn't finish in what's likely her final Winter Games.
Gisin was nearly flawless in finishing in a combined time of 2 minutes, 20.90 seconds to hold off silver medalist Shiffrin by 0.97 seconds. Wendy Holdener of Switzerland earned the bronze.
Shiffrin adds the silver medal to the gold she won earlier in the games in the giant slalom.
It was very likely the first and only Olympic race between U. S. teammates Vonn and Shiffrin.
3:20 p.m.
The women's gold medal hockey game between the United States and Canada is heading into overtime at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
The score was tied 2-all at the end of regulation. Twenty minutes of overtime will be added to the game. If it's still tied after that, there will be a shootout.
Canada was up 2-1 until Monique Lamoreux-Morando tied it for the Americans with just over six minutes left Thursday.
Canada is going for its fifth straight Olympic gold medal in women's hockey. The Americans are trying to win their first since 1998.

2:45 p.m.
Canada goaltender Ben Scrivens is day-to-day with a shoulder and collarbone injury, though the general manager is optimistic the veteran is not out of the men's hockey tournament at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Scrivens was not healthy enough to practice for Canada on Thursday, and GM Sean Burke says he was getting iced down. Scrivens had to leave Canada's 1-0 quarterfinal victory over Finland on Wednesday about four minutes into the second period after colliding with an opposing player.
Former New York Islanders goaltender Kevin Poulin replaced Scrivens and stopped all 15 shots he faced to get Canada into the semifinals, where it faces Germany on Friday.
2:40 p.m.
Canada is 20 minutes away from winning their fifth consecutive gold medal in Olympic women's hockey.
The Canadians have a 2-1 lead over the United States through two periods of the gold medal match Thursday.
Hilary Knight scored late in the first to give the Americans the lead. But Haley Irwin deflected a shot past U. S. goalie Maddie Rooney two minutes into the second. And then Marie-Philip Poulin gave the four-time defending gold medalists the lead on a pass from Meghan Agosta about five minutes later.
Poulin scored the only two goals in the gold medal game against the U. S. in 2010. In Sochi, she tied the game in the last minute of regulation and then added the game-winner in overtime against the U. S.
2:35 p.m.
Andre Myhrer of Sweden has won the Olympic men's slalom, taking advantage of big favorites Marcel Hirscher and Henrik Kristoffersen failing to finish the race.
Myhrer watched as first-run leader Kristoffersen skied out early in the second run Thursday.
The 35-year-old Myhrer finished 0.34 seconds ahead of Switzerland's Ramon Zenhaeusern, who took an unexpected silver medal.
Bronze medalist Michael Matt of Austria was 0.67 behind Myhrer's two-run time of 1 minute, 38.99 seconds. Matt's brother Mario won gold four years ago.
Myhrer added gold to his bronze medal in the 2010 Vancouver Olympic slalom.
He is the second 35-year-old man to take Alpine gold here after Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway won the downhill.
Hirscher went out midway through the first run seeking a third gold medal at these Olympics.
2:25 p.m.
A giant mock medal was ceremoniously thrown into a crowd celebrating a Dutch bronze medal at the Holland Heineken House at the Pyeongchang Olympics, injuring two people.
The medal was thrown Wednesday night after speedskaters Sven Kramer, Jan Blokhuijsen, Patrick Roest and Koen Verweij celebrated their bronze medal in the team pursuit, an event they were heavily favored to win.
Kramer is team leader and issued an apology Thursday, saying he was hoping for a quick recovery for the two injured fans.
Dutch media reported one of the two had to be taken to hospital for a checkup. Another was treated on site.
Holland Heineken House is known for its exuberant celebrations when the Dutch win speedskating medals.
1:50 p.m.
The Americans lead Canada 1-0 after the first period of the women's gold medal hockey game at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Hilary Knight redirected a shot from Sidney Morin with 25.4 seconds left in the period as the Americans finally converted their third power-play opportunity.
Until then, the Canadians used their size to control the pace of play to keep U. S. goalie Maddie Rooney very busy. Even when the Americans had the advantage, Canada made it tough for them to even get past the blue line into the offensive zone let alone put shots on goalie Shannon Szabados.
Knight tipped the puck between Szabados' pads for the goal, giving the American women's hockey team a reason to celebrate as they look to end a 20-year gold medal drought in the Olympics.
1:20 p.m.
The United States is going with Maddie Rooney in goal for the gold medal game in women's hockey at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
The 20-year-old Rooney went 4-0-2 for the Americans during their pre-Olympic exhibition tour, and she was in net for a 2-1 loss to the Canadians to wrap up pool play.
Canada has put Shannon Szabados in net. The veteran was in net in 2014 at Sochi when the Canadians took home their fourth consecutive gold medal.
The Americans are trying to snap a 20-year drought without a gold medal in women's hockey. They last won when the sport debuted in 1998 at Nagano.
The Canadians have won every gold medal since, not dropping even a single Olympic game since 1998.
1:15 p.m.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has canceled a doping hearing for Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky after he indicated he'd accept a sanction at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Krushelnitsky tested positive for the banned substance meldonium after winning bronze in mixed doubles with his wife, Anastasia Bryzgalova.
The Russian Curling Federation told Russian state TV that Krushelnitsky would return his medal because he believed he had no chance of winning the case.
CAS says "all parties" agreed to cancel the hearing, which pitted Krushelnitsy against the International Olympic Committee and World Curling Federation. The CAS will issue a decision later Thursday based on written statements.
The case comes two days before the IOC must decide whether to formally reinstate the Russian team for the closing ceremony of the Pyeongchang Olympics.
This item has been corrected to show that the Court of Arbitration for Sport, not the International Olympic Committee, will issue a decision later Thursday.
12:45 p.m.
American freestyle skier David Wise has successfully defended his gold medal, breaking through on his final run to give the United States its third gold in the Phoenix Snow Park halfpipe.
Wise wiped out on his first two runs before sneaking past countryman Alex Ferreira on his third with a score of 97.20. Wise landed double corks in all four directions — front left, front right, switch (backward) left and switch right — a goal he set for himself entering these games.
It's the seventh gold for the U. S. in Pyeongchang, five of which have come at Phoenix Snow Park.
Ferreira took silver with 96.40 points, and 16-year-old Nico Porteous from New Zealand got bronze.
12:35 p.m.
Lindsey Vonn has the lead after the downhill leg of the Olympic Alpine combined, with American teammate Mikaela Shiffrin right in the thick of things.
Vonn finished in a time of 1 minute, 39.37 seconds. Shiffrin is 1.98 seconds behind.
The race switches Thursday afternoon local time to Shiffrin's specialty — the slalom. Both times are combined to determine the winner.
Vonn had the lead after the downhill leg at the 2010 Vancouver Games but didn't finish the slalom.
Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway had the second-fastest time in the downhill and is 0.74 seconds behind Vonn.
12:15 p.m.
Mikaela Shiffrin has set up a showdown with American teammate Lindsey Vonn after a solid run in the downhill portion of the Olympic combined.
The downhill is Vonn's specialty, and she blazed through the course with the top time of 1 minute, 39.37 seconds through 17 racers Thursday morning. Shiffrin trails by 1.98 seconds.
Shiffrin's specialty, the slalom, is being held Thursday afternoon. Both times are combined to determine the winner.
Shiffrin is trying to win her third career Olympic gold medal.
Lindsey Vonn had the fastest time through 13 racers in the downhill portion of the Olympic women's Alpine combined.
The American led Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway by 0.74 seconds.
The slalom leg will be held later in the afternoon. That discipline is not Vonn's specialty. Both times are combined to determine the winner.
Mikaela Shiffrin is one of the favorites and will be the 19th racer to take the course.
Before the race, Vonn posted on her Twitter account that she damaged the bottom of her ski the day before during her bronze-medal run in the downhill and had to bring out another pair. She said of the new set: "Hopefully they'll survive and stay fast the whole way down.???? #thatisskiracing."
They did.
11:10 a.m.
Henrik Kristoffersen has taken advantage of rival Marcel Hirscher skiing out to lead the first run of the Olympic men's slalom.
Kristoffersen, starting immediately before Hirscher, set a fast target of 47.72 seconds. The Norwegian is 0.21 ahead of Andre Myhrer of Sweden.
Kristoffersen and Myhrer won the bronze medals in slalom at the past two Winter Games.
Third-placed Victor Muffat-Jeandet of France has 0.62 to make up on Kristoffersen in the second run in the afternoon. Muffat-Jeandet got bronze in the Alpine combined won by Hirscher.
Hirscher was the favorite to become the first male Alpine skier in 50 years to win three golds at the same Olympics. He won the giant slalom when Kristoffersen took silver.
Most of the lower-ranked racers in a 108-man lineup had yet to start. It included two North Koreans and only three racers from the American team, which did not take its full quota of four places.
11:05 a.m.
Alina Zagitova knows how to flaunt it.
During the final women's practice heading into Friday's free skate, the first-place figure skater from Russia performed so many jumps, nearly all of them triples, it seemed she'd bore a hole in the ice.
At one point, the 15-year-old from Moscow did a combination of triple lutz-triple loop-triple loop. Yes, five jumps in sequence. No stopping in between.
Then she skated away, only to nail a series of loops and salchows and flips and lutzes all around the rink.
That was all in addition to a run-through of her free skate, although she actually omitted some elements — hardly unusual for Russian skaters.
Basically, Zagitova did more jumps in one minute of the session than most skaters perform in an entire practice.
11 a.m.
Anna Gasser edged two-time gold medalist Jamie Anderson to win gold in the Olympic debut of women's Big Air snowboarding.
Gasser, the reigning world champion, stomped the last of her three jumps, a double cork 1080 that saw the Austrian flip twice while spinning three times. Her score of 96 was the highest of the day and gave her a total of 185.00.
Anderson, who last week captured her second Olympic gold in women's slopestyle, led going into the final round but sat down while trying to land her last jump. Gasser took full advantage. The 26-year-old raised her arms in triumph and embraced Anderson after the score flashed.
Zoi Sadowski Synnott earned bronze to give New Zealand its first Winter Olympic medal in 26 years.
10:40 a.m.
The Americans are back for another chance at the Olympic gold medal that has eluded them since women's hockey debuted in 1998 at Nagano.
They will play archrival Canada, four years after the Canadians rallied from two goals down to shock the Americans in the gold-medal game in Sochi.
Also Thursday, three gold medals will be decided in the final session of short-track speedskating.
Medals will be award in the men's 500 meters, the women's 1,000 and the men's 5,000 relay. South Korea has won three of the five gold medals decided so far in this sport.
And the women's snowboarding Big Air final will be held, pushed forward a day because of predicted bad weather Friday. The U. S. has four athletes competing in this event including slopestyle gold medalist Jamie Anderson and 17-year-old Hailey Langland, who has won this event at the X Games.
10:15 a.m.
Marcel Hirscher's quest for a third gold medal at the Pyeongchang Olympics is over.
The 28-year-old Austrian star was the big favorite in slalom, his specialty, but he skied out early in the opening run on Thursday.
Hirscher looked ill at ease on a course where the gates were set by an Austrian team coach.
He started immediately after his biggest rival, Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway, set a fast target of 47.72 seconds.
Hirscher already won the giant slalom and Alpine combined titles.
8:25 a.m.
Russian state TV reports that curler Alexander Krushelnitsky will give back his Olympic bronze medal after failing a drug test at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.
Krushelnitsky tested positive for the banned substance meldonium, which is believed to help blood circulation, after winning bronze in mixed doubles along with his wife Anastasia Bryzgalova.
Russian Curling Federation spokesperson Valentina Parinova tells state TV channel Russia 1 that "we have signed a statement that indeed he did have (meldonium in the sample) and as a result we will give the medal back."
The secretary general for the Court of Arbitration for Sport says a hearing in Krushelnitsky's case is still scheduled for 2 p.m. despite the Russian statements.

For decades Graham offered counsel and comfort to presidents

He was rebuffed, then embraced, by Harry Truman. Confided in — and deeply hurt by — Richard Nixon. A source of reassurance for George H. W. Bush on the eve of war. The spark that finally turned George W. Bush toward sobriety.
The Rev. Billy Graham, who died Wednesday at age 99, was a fixture of the presidency to every man who has held the office back to the early years of the Cold War. He met all 12 of them, plus Donald Trump before he ran for office, and counseled most as they grappled with governing, politics and peace of mind.
Though most presidents have sought guidance from spiritual leaders, Graham's role at the top echelons of American politics was unique, and there's no obvious successor likely to fill his shoes as an adviser to leaders from both parties. The evangelical movement he helped turn into a political force is now most closely aligned with the Republican Party, including Trump, who has been publicly backed by numerous evangelical leaders.
"Many of the public religious figures are known in the public because of their stances politically," said Mark Noll, an evangelical scholar at the University of Notre Dame. He said the current political and media polarization "makes it harder for a figure like Graham to emerge."
For some of the presidents he advised, Graham offered more than just prayers, support and photo opportunities. Depending on the White House occupant and the era, he was a friend, negotiator and shrewd political adviser.
His first overtures to a president were rebuffed. His star rising, Graham pressed Truman, a Democrat, to attend his Washington crusade in 1952. But Truman wanted no part of Graham, whom he at first considered a publicity hound. After Truman left the White House, he received Graham at his home in Independence, Missouri, according to Graham's website.
He had better luck with Truman's successor, Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower. Graham urged Eisenhower to run for president and counseled him about the afterlife.
His close friendship with Nixon began in the late 1950s, before the Republican landed in the White House. The match was glued by their disdain for communism, Graham's belief that Nixon was a man of high moral character— and both men's ambitions. Graham considered endorsing Nixon in the 1960 election against Democrat John F. Kennedy, when Kennedy's Catholicism became a divisive issue.
"I think the true story with Graham was he was far more partisan that he's ever let on in public or that's ever come to light," said Randall Balmer, a Dartmouth College historian and author of "God in the White House."
When Kennedy defeated Nixon, Graham agreed to play golf with the president-elect at the Kennedys' Palm Beach, Florida, estate and drove around in Kennedy's white Lincoln Continental.
"He missed a putt and Kennedy said, 'Well, I thought you were a good golfer,'" said Grant Wacker of Duke Divinity School. Graham rolled with it, replying, "I am when I'm not playing with the president of the United States." But Graham and Kennedy were never close.
Graham's relationship with Nixon was complex and ultimately painful. When the Watergate scandal broke, Graham said he did not recognize the man he knew as modest and moral. "I did not absolve him — but neither did I judge him," Graham wrote in his memoirs.
When tapes from Nixon's White House were released in 2002, Graham was heard telling the president that Jews "don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country." He apologized.
William C. Martin of Rice University, one of Graham's biographers, said in a statement that Graham was stunned when told that some of Nixon's aides had admitted using the pastor.
"'I felt like a sheep led to the slaughter,'" Graham responded to Martin, author of "A Prophet with Honor: The Billy Graham Story."
Graham took a lower political profile after Watergate, but he did not abandon politics. He urged President Gerald Ford to pardon Nixon and supported Jimmy Carter on the SALT disarmament treaty with the Soviet Union.
"A big myth is that he became apolitical after Watergate," said Michael Long, an associate professor of religious studies and peace and conflict studies at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania. "In some ways, he became even more political."
Graham also was criticized by some conservative evangelicals for praying at the inauguration of Bill Clinton, a supporter of abortion rights — and then criticized again for publicly forgiving Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal and praising Hillary Rodham Clinton for forgiving her husband.
Graham had a close relationship with the Bush family. Patriarch George H. W. Bush said that the pastor's presence on the eve of the Persian Gulf War helped him avoid doubt, "even for a second... (about) the moral clarity of our mission that January night."
Years later, his son, George W. Bush, recalled in an interview with Focus on the Family that he'd been drunk the first time he met Graham at the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. The two went for a walk that launched Bush's rejection of alcohol and embrace of Christianity.
"We started talking about religion," the former president said in the interview. "And Billy sent me a Bible and I started reading the Bible."
Graham kept a lower profile later in life, but still kept in touch with presidents. He accepted tributes from a trio of them — Carter, Clinton and the elder Bush — at the dedication of the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2010, President Barack Obama visited Graham at his home in Montreat, North Carolina.
Trump and his wife, Melania, attended Graham's 95th birthday party in 2013. By the time Trump was inaugurated in January 2017, it was Graham's son, Franklin, who spoke, declaring the rainy day "a sign of God's blessing."

Joko Widodo pays US$805 to redeem Metallica album given to him by Danish Prime Minister

By Jessica Lin
Indonesian President Joko Widodo (also known as Jokowi) has proven himself to be a true Metallica fan.
The 56-year-old leader reportedly paid 11 million rupiah (US$805) to redeem a limited-edition boxed set of Metallica’s Master of Puppets presented to him by Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen last year.
According to Jakarta Post, Jokowi had declared the gift to Corruption Eradication Commission which decided the double-vinyl album was a part of state inventory.
To avoid conflict of interest, Jokowi paid up to redeem the double-vinyl album set.
More than 10 million copies of Metallica’s Master of Puppers has been sold across the world.
The box set includes remastered tracks of the original album and various unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews, and live recordings.
In 2013, Jokowi had also received and handed over to the corruption commission a bass guitar signed by Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo.

Court considers banning diesel cars in German cities

A German court is considering whether cities should ban diesel cars to lower air pollution, a move that could have drastic consequences for the country's auto industry.
The Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig is hearing an appeal Thursday by two German states against lower court rulings that suggested driving bans for particularly dirty diesel cars were effective and should be considered.
A decision could be issued later in the day.
The original court cases were brought by environmental groups who say excessive air pollution levels in dozens of German cities are largely caused by diesel cars. They accuse the government of putting automakers' interests before citizens' health.
German automaker Volkswagen was found three years ago to have used in-car software to cheat on U. S. emissions tests, resulting in large fines.

African asylum seekers facing expulsion have embraced Israel

Even as he faces a potential deportation from Israel, 30-year-old Eritrean asylum seeker Johny Goytiom Kafl brims with satisfaction as he looks out upon thousands of fellow protesters rallying against the impending expulsions, all while peacefully secured by police.
It's such displays of civil action that he most admires about his adoptive home of the past nine years since he escaped one of the world's most oppressive regimes, and then faced torture, kidnapping and abuse during his exodus throughout Africa.
"You are treated like a human being in Israel," he said in fluent Hebrew. "Here I am not afraid. In Eritrea, I was afraid."
Kafl, along with tens of thousands of other Africans, now fear their stay in the Holy Land is coming to an abrupt end. Israel has given many of them until April 1 to leave for an unnamed African destination — known to be Rwanda — in exchange for $3,500 and a plane ticket. Otherwise, they face open-ended incarceration.
Israel considers the vast majority of the nearly 40,000 migrants to be job seekers and says it has no legal obligation to keep them. The Africans, nearly all from dictatorial Eritrea and war-torn Sudan, say they fled for their lives and face renewed danger if they return.
As the world grapples with the worst refugee crisis since World War II, the issue has struck a raw nerve in Israel — established on the heels of the Holocaust.
Critics at home and in the Jewish American community have called the government's proposed response unethical and a stain on Israel's image as a refuge for Jewish migrants.
The optics of black asylum seekers accusing the country of racism has turned into a public relations liability for Israel, and groups of Israeli doctors, academics, poets, Holocaust survivors, rabbis and pilots have all appealed to halt the plan. But the government remains steadfast, bristling at what it considers cynical comparisons to the plight of Jews in Nazi Germany.
The Africans started moving toward Israel in 2005 after neighboring Egypt violently quashed a refugee demonstration and word spread of safety and job opportunities in Israel. Tens of thousands crossed the porous desert border before Israel completed a barrier in 2012 that stopped the influx.
But Israel has struggled with what to do with those already in the country, alternating between plans to deport them and offering them menial jobs in hotels and local municipalities.
Kafl, like many of his compatriots, fled Eritrea to escape its lifelong military conscription in slavery-like conditions and fears death if he returns.
He has experienced both sides of Israel. His asylum request is still pending, and he has been locked up in a massive detention center in the remote southern desert. But he is also deeply grateful to the many Israelis who welcomed him and sympathized with his plight. He said he hopes to one day return the favor if the Eritrean regime is ultimately toppled.
"I knocked on the door of the country and said 'save me.' I will never forget the soldier who said 'welcome,' gave me food and called for a doctor. I got his kind of respect in Israel, not in Eritrea," he said.
After the initial warm welcome, however, many turned against the migrants, particularly in the working class neighborhoods in south Tel Aviv, which have become known as "Little Africa."
"They are abusing our democracy to live off our backs," said Shefi Paz, who leads the local residents' opposition. "They've ruined our community and ruined our lives."
The government, dominated by nationalist parties, has denounced their prolonged stay and recently voted to begin deporting them to African countries with which they have reached secret agreements. They are believed to be Rwanda and Uganda, close allies of Israel, though they both deny any deal exists.
The government says it is going out of its way to accommodate humanitarian concerns. Women, children and families, for example, are exempt from the deportation order, as are those who escaped the genocide in Sudan's western region of Darfur. It says it is expediting its refugee vetting process, and notes the Supreme Court has ruled the arrangement is legal and does not imperil those dispatched.
But that's not what the migrants and their backers contend.
Sigal Rozen, of the Hotline for Refugees and Migrants advocacy group, said Israel's processing has been disingenuous, noting that of the 15,000 African refugee status requests, only 11 have been approved.
She said the 4,000 migrants who accepted previous offers to go to Rwanda did not find refuge there. Nearly all had their travel papers seized and money taken and were then pushed into neighboring Uganda to embark upon a second refugee ordeal.
Unable to return home, they have been forced to traverse though Africa, where many reported being tortured, raped and starved in Libya en route to Europe. An Eritrean Christian who had left Israel was beheaded on a Libyan beach by the Islamic State group in 2015.
"How can Israel know if these people are genuine refugees if they didn't check their asylum requests?" said Rozen. "As Jews, we are morally obliged to protect these people from the horrible things that they ran away from."
At a parliamentary hearing Monday, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said Israel had no obligation toward what she called job seekers who imposed "unacceptable migrant terror that includes violence and sexual harassment" toward the people of south Tel Aviv.
Monim Haroon said it hurt to hear Israel refer to him as an infiltrator. Now a 28-year-old university student in Jerusalem, he fled Darfur five years ago and has lost family members in the genocide.
"I escaped my country because I wanted to stay alive and to say that I am just a migrant worker, that is very painful to me," he said at a demonstration outside the Rwandan Embassy in Tel Aviv.
Lior Birger, a researcher who published a recent study of 19 migrants who voluntarily left Israel and managed to reach Europe, said Israel's promises were not being kept. One Eritrean testified to being extorted in a Sudanese prison and then beaten in a Libyan torture camp and shoved into a small room with 800 people. Another said he watched his wife drown in the Mediterranean and later tried to kill himself. She said everyone had a uniform message: "Better a prison in Israel than dying on the way."
A recent poll by the respected Israel Democracy Institute found two-thirds of the Jewish public agreed with the planned expulsions. The migrants' best hope may be the government's lack of preparation. Prison authorities are skeptical they will be able to process the expected 15,000 to 20,000 to be jailed.
For many of the Africans, there is no good choice.
"I don't care about the money and I never even planned to reach Israel. I was just looking for a safe area," said Halofom Sultan, 37, who escaped Eritrea seven years ago and has been separated from his wife and two children since. "I hope there will be a change in my country and I can go back. Otherwise, I don't know."

5 things you need to know Thursday

President Trump is scheduled to meet with state and local officials on school safety at the White House Thursday as part of an ongoing dialogue following the shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead. Trump promised tougher background checks and mental health screens for gun buyers in an emotional forum at the White House Wednesday with students and parents who were personally affected by mass school shootings in the U. S. The president also seemed to endorse changes in state concealed-carry laws to allow teachers to be armed.
For the first time in 20 years, Team USA is at the top of the Olympic women's hockey world after a thrilling overtime victory against rival Canada. The U. S. continued its dominance in trick competitions early on Thursday with a handful of medals. Jamie Anderson won silver in the Olympic debut of snowboarding big air, then David Wise defended his gold medal from Sochi on the halfpipe and Alex Ferreira took the silver. On the slopes, Mikaela Shiffrin had a strong run in her specialty, the slalom, to earn the silver medal in Alpine combined. Lindsey Vonn, meanwhile, skied out as the final competitor in the race and did not finish. Later in the day, the figure skating competition concludes with the ladies’ free skate.
SpaceX hopes to take to the skies yet again on Thursday, assuming the weather is right. CEO Elon Musk tweeted Wednesday that the company was hoping to launch a Falcon 9 rocket, but wind led to a postponement. The notable payload for this launch: two test satellites for the company's planned global satellite Internet service called Starlink. The company said last May that it plans to launch more than 4,420 small satellites into low orbit around the Earth beginning next year, with full network deployment expected by 2024.
High altitude wind shear data shows a probable 2% load exceedance. Small, but better to be paranoid. Postponing launch to tomorrow, assuming winds are better then.
Sweden and Kuwait called for a vote Thursday on a United Nations resolution ordering a 30-day cease-fire throughout Syria. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said a suspension of fighting must allow for humanitarian aid to reach all in need and the evacuation of some 700 people needing urgent medical treatment. U. S. Ambassador Nikki Haley supported the U. N. chief saying "it is time for us to realize that we can’t continue to look away." Russia’s U. N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia called a 30-day cease-fire unrealistic. Since the Syrian conflict began nearly seven years ago, the Security Council has been deeply divided.
Setting aside emergency savings is a key piece of personal finance advice that many struggle to follow through on, but more Americans may be making progress on boosting savings, a survey released Thursday says. According to personal finance site, 33% of Americans say they do not have more emergency savings than credit card debt. While one in three Americans is financially ill-equipped for an emergency, that's down from 41% in 2017 and 43% in 2016, and it's the lowest level in the eight years of the survey. Fifty-eight percent say their emergency savings fund exceeds their credit card debt, which is up from 52% from the year before.

Inside Nikolas Cruz’s History With The Police: 911 Records Prior To The Fatal Parkland Shooting Revealed

Records from 911 reports reveal Nikolas Cruz, the suspect for the fatal Parkland, Florida Valentine's Day shooting, being involved in a number of incidents three months before going on a killing spree.
Nikolas Cruz, the alleged gunman at the fatal Parkland school shooting in Florida, had been involved in a number of incidents in Palm Beach County over the last three months, a new report revealed.
After he went on a rampage and killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, the 19-year-old has become a hot topic on social media and online. Because of the gravity of his actions that led to the slaughter, many news outlets dug deeper into his past and uncovered interesting things about his mental health and his encounters with the police.
During one of the instances that occurred on November 28, Cruz got into a brawl with Lantana trailer park resident and Roxanne’s son, 22-year-old Rock Deschamps. Based on the report, the 19-year-old shooting suspect punched a wall into the trailer and started to “break things” after misplacing his mother’s photo.
Seeing the damage done to his house, Cruz’s 22-year-old housemate got into a fist fight with him but eventually called 911. When authorities arrived, the 19-year-old suspect reportedly apologized for “losing his temper” and appeared “nervous and calm” at the same time.
Because the teen was “going through a lot,” Deschamps decided not to press charges and told the law enforcers that he “did not want [Cruz] to go to jail.”
Four days before that, the same neighbor called 911 to report about his suspicions that Cruz owned a gun and asked the deputies to see if it was buried in his backyard. At the time, Nikolas Cruz was at work. It wasn’t clear whether authorities found a weapon concealed or if they contacted the suspect at the time.
On November 27, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School social worker called 911 to conduct a welfare check on the younger Cruz brother who lived with Nikolas and their mother’s best friend at the trailer park.
According to the report, Nikolas Cruz’s brother failed to attend his classes after their adoptive mother, Lynda Cruz, passed away. He wasn’t officially “dis-enrolled from school in Broward to attend any other school.”
On top of that, a total of forty 911 calls were placed while the Cruz family resided in the area from 2010 to January 2017 for incidents that vary including domestic disturbance, mentally ill person and child or elderly abuse, and juvenile disturbance.

Tearful student asks Trump, 'How do we not stop this?'

WASHINGTON (AP) - Spilling out wrenching tales of lost lives and stolen security, students and parents appealed to President Donald Trump to set politics aside and protect America's school children from the scourge of gun violence. Trump listened intently to the raw emotion and pledged action, including the possibility of arming teachers.
"I turned 18 the day after" the shooting, said a tearful Samuel Zeif, a student at the Florida high school where a former student's assault left 17 dead last week. "Woke up to the news that my best friend was gone. And I don't understand why I can still go in a store and buy a weapon of war. An AR. How is it that easy to buy this type of weapon? How do we not stop this after Columbine? After Sandy Hook?"
Trump promised to be "very strong on background checks." And he suggested he supported allowing some teachers and other school employees to carry concealed weapons to be ready for intruders. But largely he listened Wednesday, holding handwritten notes bearing his message to the families. "I hear you" was written in black marker.
The president had invited the teen survivors of school violence and parents of murdered children in a show of his resolve against gun violence in the wake of last week's shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and in past years at schools in Connecticut and Colorado. The latest episode has prompted a renewed and growing call for stronger gun control.
Trump asked his guests to suggest solutions and solicited feedback. He did not fully endorse any specific policy solution, but pledged to take action and expressed interest in widely differing approaches.
Besides considering concealed carrying of weapons by trained school employees, a concept he has endorsed in the past, he said he planned to go "very strongly into age, age of purchase." And he said he was committed to improving background checks and working on mental health.
Most in the group were emotional but quiet and polite.
But Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed last week, noted the previous school massacres and raged over his loss, saying this moment isn't about gun laws but about fixing the schools.
"It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it and I'm pissed. Because my daughter, I'm not going to see again," said Pollack. "King David Cemetery, that is where I go to see my kid now."
A strong supporter of gun rights, Trump has nonetheless indicated in recent days that he is willing to consider ideas not in keeping with National Rifle Association orthodoxy, including age restrictions for
