WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. officials are expected to announce an imminent response, including sanctions, on Thursday for Russia's interference in the U.S. presidential election by hacking American political sites and email accounts -- an effort that ensures action before President-elect Donald Trump takes office
After my post last night about Bob Costas name dropping Pussy Riot during the opening broadcast of the Sochi 2014 Olympics, I realized that I should also give you some sort of context as to why it happened. It wasn't just Costas going all willy-nilly and standing atop his soapbox (yet). Ol' Bobby mentioned the all female punk collective while referring to Russian snowboarder Alexei Sobolev.
It's been all over the news for the last couple of weeks. What's happening in the Ukraine?
Huge antigovernment protests have escalated quickly in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, since late last year. These events started happening around the time that President Yanukovych turned away from a deal that would allow Ukraine to join the European Union.
Bloodhound Gang members Evil Jared Hasselhoff and Jimmy Pop are in a little trouble with Mother Russia. While performing in Ukraine in July, Evil Jared used the Russian flag for a "Bad Touch," by stuffing it down the front of his pants, pulling it out the back, and throwing it down to the crowd.
An incredibly bright light followed by a glass shattering boom caused a bit of panic on Thursday evening as a meteorite exploded over Russia. Speculations ran quick of a missile attack or a UFO, but it was nothing more than a rare astronomical event. Even more rare is for it to be documented this heavily.

Here’s a look at some interesting events that took place on this day in history:

1914 – Germany declares war on Russia, launching World War I (More info)
If the collective's name isn't bold enough to catch your attention, maybe their antics will. Back in February Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Yekaterina Samutsevich of the collective Pussy Riot were arrested after performing their song 'Holy S**t', which is considered a 'punk prayer', on the altar at Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral as a protest against the Orthodox Christian chur
Linkin Park has...evolved? I don't what to call it, but they are definitely not the same band today as they were when 'Hybrid Theory' came out. Their newest album, 'A Thousand Suns' was met with mixed reviews by a lot of critics (even fans) and it definitely is missing any kind of 'rock' feel to it.
Just like the last two Transformers movies, Linkin Park was asked to write the title song to the ne
