  1. A Half-pipe Champ, Alleged Police Brutality and Top Dogs

    Know This: American Chloe Kim, 17, won the gold medal in half-pipe this morning at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Three Wisconsin police officers have been charged in the 2016 death of an inmate who was deprived of water for seven days. And four of the seven dogs who’ll compete for Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show have been chosen: a borzoi, a border collie, a pug and a bichon frise.

    Read This: Athletes train their whole lives for the Olympics — but when their relatively short careers come to an end, they’re often left without many resources to build a normal life or second career. But new programs are aiming to help them re-adjust and overcome those obstacles.
