Boston Marathon organizers have banned runners from bringing bags and imposed other measures to tighten security for the April race after a twin bomb attack near the finish line last year killed three people and wounded 264.
The rule changes announced on Wednesday stem from security talks over months between local, Massachusetts, and federal officials in preparation for the world-famous race that could draw some 36,000 runners and spectators on April 21.

There’s always an impression about the way girls look on the sidelines. I’m not going to lie, I really want to look nice. But I feel like it’s such a double standard because the men I work with are gorgeous. Most of them are former athletes and they take really good care of themselves. And I gotta tell ya, their suits aren’t cheap. So, when people are like, ‘Oh, she paid this much for her jacket’, or ‘She’s wearing these kind of boots on the field’, it’s like, ‘Yeah, but go ask Michael Strahan how much his suits cost.’
Erin Andrews • Commenting on some of the critiques she regularly faces during her career as a sportscaster, during a recent discussion of double standards in football broadcasting with Elle magazine, and the fact that many of those issues never seem to matter to her detractors when it comes time to examine the performances of her male counterparts.

President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday no athlete would face discrimination at next month’s Winter Olympics, hoping to ease international concern over a Russian law banning gay “propaganda”.
Aware that the success or failure of the Sochi Games will help shape his legacy, Putin has closely identified himself with the $50-billion event which opens on Feb. 7.
Putin outraged many in the West last year by signing a law banning the spread of homosexual “propaganda” among minors. Critics say the law is discriminatory and aimed at stifling dissent but calls for a boycott of the Games have failed.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has apologized for comments he made on Wednesday which many took as a sign that Rodman believed imprisoned American Kenneth Bae was actually guilty of the crimes the North Korean government has charged him with, Rodman apologized to Bae and his family, other players who also made the trip to North Korea, the CNN reporter he berated and anyone else offended by his comments, attributing them to a combination of too much alcohol and poor spirits.

Hello. My name is Chris Kluwe, and for eight years I was the punter for the Minnesota Vikings. In May 2013, the Vikings released me from the team. At the time, quite a few people asked me if I thought it was because of my recent activism for same-sex marriage rights, and I was very careful in how I answered the question. My answer, verbatim, was always, “I honestly don’t know, because I’m not in those meetings with the coaches and administrative people.”
This is a true answer. I honestly don’t know if my activism was the reason I got fired.
However, I’m pretty confident it was.
