McLaren Report: Russia's reaction to doping scandal more troubling that the details

Yelena Isinbayeva's appointment to the RUSADA board, made a mere two days before Part 2 of the McLaren report arrived, was all you needed to conclude that either Russia does not fully grasp the depths of depravity that Richard McLaren painstakingly detailed in his 144-page report or, maybe worse, that it just doesn't care. #Russia #Doping #IOC #Yelena Isinbayeva #SportsTracker #WADA #Vitaly Mutko #Rusada #Richard McLaren #McLaren Report

Aleppo displaced hide out in last rebel districts as army closes in | Reuters

But as the Syrian army close in on the ruined streets of the Old City, they face some unbearable choices."I feel this is the end," Reem, a mother of two children, said via patchy internet connection from a rebel held district of the historic city centre. Cold and a lack of water had made her children ill and the family was surviving on one meal a day."We've long accepted that if we die we die, from barrel bombs and so on, but now we're scared that the army will come in and take my husband."The options facing Reem and others caught up in the rapid government advance are bleak: men of fighting age could be arrested whether they stay put or head to government-held districts. #United States #India #Syria #Middle East #Russia #United Kingdom #graphics
