  1. Casualties, a Prince of Denmark and Snowboarding Gold

    Know This: Dozens of Russian fighters are believed to have been killed in a U.S.-backed onslaught in Syria, though a military spokesman said American and Russian troops did not battle directly. Prince Henrik of Denmark, who last year announced he didn’t want to be buried next to his wife, Queen Margrethe, to punish her for not making him king, has died at age 83. And Shaun White became the first Olympic snowboarder to win three gold medals with a near-perfect halfpipe run today.

    Watch This: A United Airlines San Francisco-to-Hawaii flight had to make an emergency landing when its engine began to disintegrate in the air.
