Good Morning: 2.19.13

Bit of a slow sports news morning. Really, this should suffice: MJ's top ten in-game dunks. Thanks, NBA.



Brittney Griner scored her 3000th point as Baylor extended their winning streak to 23 games against no. 3 Uconn. Griner moved to eighth on the all-time leading scorers list, knocking down a couple of free throws with 1:05 left in the game to pass the landmark.


Oscar Pistorius has been charged with premeditated murder.


Wes Welker appears to be heading toward NFL free agency.

Marcus Lattimore claims doctors will be “shocked” at his progress.

India has become a data center of sorts, particularly for Great Britain. The British government claims to face 1,000 cyber attacks every hour, and has now struck a cyber security deal with India to keep its data protected.


Many of those attacks appear to come from China. A US security firm says over 115 companies and organizations have been attacked and conclude that China is the “most threatening actor in cyperspace.”


China says these claims are groundless. They must have detained this journalist investigating cyber crimes for some other reason.
