  1. World Watches Sochi’s Opening Ceremony

    The most expensive Winter Olympics in history has kicked off in Sochi. The details of the Opening Ceremony were kept largely under wraps, and will show on U.S. television Friday night.

The head of the Games insists that Sochi will be “the safest place on Earth” in the coming weeks, but even as they officially began, so too did the threats and fears — a Sochi-related hijacking scare on a Turkish airline caused an emergency landing.
