What do the gun violence debate and 2016 election have in common?

CNN Top Stories - Sat, 02/17/2018 - 15:22
The news that a federal grand jury has indicted 13 Russians over interference in the 2016 US election comes on the heels of what would seem to be a totally unrelated event -- the mass shooting in a Florida school. The indictments were over alleged meddling in the presidential election, but Russia's efforts to undermine US democracy may extend well beyond that. Russia appears to be stoking divisions on the acrimonious subject of gun violence, one where America's system of government appears to be failing.

Nathan Chen on landing 6 quads: ‘I had nothing to lose’

KSN - Sat, 02/17/2018 - 14:51

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (WOOD) — He may not have made it to the podium, but Nathan Chen did make history on the ice in PyeongChang.

The 18-year-old American figure skater ended the men’s free skate in fifth place, landing a historic six quadruple jumps. That moved him up from 17th place, where he found himself after the short program.

<<Watch Nathan Chen’s full interview here>>

He told WOOD TV8’s Jack Doles that after his “disastrous” short program, there was much less pressure for him going into the free skate.

“I had nothing to lose at that point and that gave me a lot of freedom to try things,” Chen said. “Probably wouldn’t have tried things if I hadn’t had such a rough skate. I’m glad that I chose what I did and stuck with it.”

So with the competition in PyeongChang behind him, is Chen looking forward to Beijing in 2022?

“Four years is a pretty long time,” he said. “My sights definitely will be in that general area. I’ll take it day by day for now and plan for the next competition.”
