On the thawing March morning he died, Denis Voronenkov stood on Shevchenko Boulevard, a broad poplar-lined street in central Kiev named after Ukraine’s national poet, his eyes glued to his phone. The 45-year-old former Russian lawmaker and security agent was promoting an interview he had given to a local news site about the life he left behind in Moscow months earlier. Given his past in Russia’s notoriously tight-lipped security services, it was particularly treasonous of him to open his mouth, while the sheer symbolism of his desertion gave his proclamations eminence. “The system is killing people,” he told the journalist, “and the reverse evolution makes the intelligent and worthy either stay silent or flee. I am not the first and I am not the last who tried to gnaw out their place in the sun in Russia.” Voronenkov had seen the transcript of the interview a few nights earlier — quote approval is standard in the Ukrainian press — and … [Read more...] about He Was the Perfect Fixer for Putin’s Russia.

At least two Republican senators are expected to vote for a Democratic spending bill that would temporarily reopen the government without providing funds for the construction of a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border, but many more would have to join them for the measure to pass. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., intends to vote for the Democratic bill that according to a report from The Denver Post. And Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, will join him, the Bangor Daily News said. The Senate plans to vote on two bills Thursday to fully fund the federal government and end the ongoing partial shutdown. The first, which is backed by Republicans, is modeled on the proposals President Donald Trump outlined in a speech Saturday and would include the $5.7 billion he requested for a border wall. The second bill, backed by the Democrats, would fund the government until Feb. 8, but denies the president the money for a border barrier. Both measures are expected to fall short of the 60 … [Read more...] about Two Republican senators expected to vote for Democratic bill to end shutdown
Mike Martin knows, as FGCU’s president, this is his last big job. He knows, as he says, the head hunters will not be paying another visit, wanting to lure him to another top academic position. Maybe that’s why he leads with a free and unabated style, willing to take risks to position this regional university for a productive future. “What’s the worst that can happen to me? I go spend more time with my grandchildren,” is how he looks at his life and his daily duties as the head of a university with 15,000 students and likely growing over the next several years.

Terri Rasters, 56, of Livermore and Marge Nelms, 55, of Orland remember a 46-year friendship with Lolene Rios, cemented with barbecues, chocolate and rockin’ out to Styx. And that’s just what they did over the past several months. Lolene Rios, 56, died on Nov. 8 after the Camp Fire roared into Paradise, leveling her home. It killed Rios and seriously injured her husband, Rick Rios, 69. When Rasters was 10 years old, Rios moved to her cul-de-sac in Garden Grove. The two girls hit it off immediately, as did Raster’s neighbor and best friend, Marge Nelms, 8. The girls played together, went to school together and vacationed together. “We called ourselves the Amy Ave Girls,” Nelms said. “It was always summertime on Amy Avenue.” Rios was smart, Nelms said. “Terri was the one who was always trying to talk sense into us.” Rasters remembers Rios as a lifelong lover of animals. When she was a child, “she had at least … [Read more...] about ‘It’s like nature turned on them’: He survived, the Camp Fire killed her. Friends remember Lolene Rios.
