Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning:
- John Kerry says he’ll soon be in Paris, which was the site of a massive rally attended by nearly 4 million people in support of France’s 17 slain police officers, journalists and other civilians.* Attendees included heads of state who coincidentally routinely imprison and kill journalists.
- Meanwhile, no massive rallies for the estimated 2,000 people killed in Nigeria.
- IS issues threats on the U.S., France, Australia and Canada.
- Today marks the five-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
- Cuba releases 53 political prisoners as part of renewed relations with the U.S.
- Gas prices hit a nearly six-year low in the U.S.
- The slender Galaxy A7 is here.
- The Golden Globes snubs Selma, stays racist and proves that Gina Rodriguez is everything. Oh, and it also gives Reuters a chance to write that women are apparently fashion accessories.
- Here we go: Taiwan confirms the outbreak of two new avian flu strains.
- Bionic implants may allow people paralyzed from spinal cord injuries to walk again.
*An earlier version of this post read that 17 journalists were killed in France; the post has been amended to reflect that 17 people, including journalists, were killed.
