|Obama's legacy on climate is at stake in Paris talks||Cutler, Bears hold off Packers 17-13 at rainy Lambeau (Yahoo Sports)|
Obama has been laying the groundwork for years ahead of the U.N.'s climate change summit.
Drenched from a soaking rain, Jay Cutler finally walked out of Lambeau Field with a win. The defense helped make Thursday night a Thanksgiving to remember for the Chicago Bears. Cutler threw for 200 yards and a score and the Bears held off the Green Bay Packers on fourth-and-goal from the 8 with 22 seconds left for a 17-13 victory.
|Turkey-Russia spat over downed Russian warplane escalates||Panthers still perfect, Romo hurt again in 33-14 Dallas loss (Yahoo Sports)|
Moscow drafts sanctions against Turkey, while Turkey vows to shoot down any new intruders.
Cam Newton sprinted to a corner of the $1.2 billion showplace of the Dallas Cowboys, pointing a camera at celebrating Carolina fans while gesturing to them with a wide smile. A few minutes later, a somber Tony Romo talked to reporters with his left arm in a sling for the second time this season because of a collarbone injury. The Panthers are 11-0 after a 33-14 victory in their Thanksgiving debut, and the Cowboys could be facing another long stretch without Romo in what has become a lost season for the defending NFC East champions.
|Thanksgiving shopping crowds 'good not great'; online sales strong||Romo knocked out vs Carolina with another collarbone injury (Yahoo Sports)|
PITTSBURGH/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Retailers across the United States offered early Black Friday discounts to lure bargain-hunters on Thanksgiving eve, but initial checks showed crowds in brick-and-mortar stores were subdued even as online sales jumped. "It's still early, and from what we are seeing so far the crowds are good but not great," said Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners. At the Toys R Us in New York's Times Square, a line of about 200 shoppers, hemmed in by barricades, stretched to the corner of 45th Street and toward Sixth Avenue, where the Macy's Inc Thanksgiving Day parade had ended a few hours earlier.
Tony Romo remained on his back after being sacked, almost motionless for a short time while looking up at the stadium's closed roof above him. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback knew that he had likely re-injured his left collarbone. ''You can hear something happen, you're just disappointed, frustrated,'' said Romo, describing the injury as similar to what he felt when he broke his collarbone in Week 2 against Philadelphia before missing seven games - all losses.
|E. coli from Costco chicken salad traced to tainted celery||One more memorable moment for Favre, Packers at Lambeau (Yahoo Sports)|
By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A multi-state E. coli outbreak that has sickened at least 19 people who ate rotisserie chicken salad sold at Costco Wholesale Corp's stores has been traced to a celery-and-onion mix used in the salad, prompting its California maker to recall the product. The contaminated chicken in that case was supplied by California-based Foster Poultry Farms.
Brett Favre had one more memorable moment with the Green Bay Packers. With cold, driving rain drenching Lambeau Field, the Packers unveiled Favre's name and retired No. 4 on the stadium facade Thursday night at halftime against the Chicago Bears. ''They get to see what it's like playing at Lambeau when it's cold, windy and raining.
|One killed, several injured in hit-and-run crash in New York City||Stafford throws 5 TD passes, Lions beat Eagles 45-14 (Yahoo Sports)|
|(Reuters) - One person was killed and several people were injured on a busy New York City street on Thursday when a hit-and-run driver struck a pedestrian before driving away and crashing into parked cars, police said.|
Matthew Stafford dropped back and perfectly lofted the ball where only Calvin Johnson could catch it. Johnson leaped to come down with the 25-yard pass in the end zone for the first of a career-high matching three touchdown receptions, Stafford tied a personal best with five scoring passes, and the surging Detroit Lions kept the Philadelphia Eagles reeling with a 45-14 rout Thursday. The Lions (4-7) have won three straight since firing their team president and general manager, and three in a row in their annual Thanksgiving game.

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.
