I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'

Things happen, and what's done is done. We leave what's not worth fighting for behind and we move on with our lives.

Always remember the days that led up to your decision to make a change!!!

When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.

With Compromises, a Global Accord to Fight Climate Change Is in Sight

LIMA, Peru — Diplomats from 196 countries are closing in on the framework of a potentially historic deal that would for the first time commit every nation in the world to cutting its planet-warming fossil fuel emissions — but would still not be enough to stop the early impacts of global warming. 

The draft, now circulating among negotiators at a global climate summit meeting here, represents a fundamental breakthrough in the impasse that has plagued the United Nations for two decades as it has tried to forge a new treaty to counter global warming. 

But the key to the political success of the draft — and its main shortcoming, negotiators concede — is that it does not bind nations to a single, global benchmark for emissions reductions. 

CIA unlikely to lose power in wake of interrogation report

The release of a searing report by the Senate Intelligence Committee on the CIA’s interrogation program Tuesday was the latest morale-sinking moment for an agency that has been buffeted repeatedly throughout its history, from the Bay of Pigs fiasco to the Nixon-era domestic abuses to the 1980s scandals tied to Iran and Latin America. 

If anything, the cycle has only been compressed in the years since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, with at least four major investigations, not to mention criminal probes, during a frenetic 13-year span. That collection now includes a 528-page account of alleged CIA abuses and dishonesty in its brutal treatment of terrorism suspects. 

The Senate report is a substantial blow to the CIA’s reputation, one that raises fundamental questions about the extent to which the agency can be trusted. And yet, as in those previous instances of political and public outrage, the agency is expected to emerge from the investigatory rubble with its role and power in Washington largely intact.

At CIA's 'Salt Pit' prison, torture reigned, with little oversight

WASHINGTON — The first detainee interrogated in the old abandoned brick factory north of Kabul became the model for what would later unfold in the cave-like halls of a CIA interrogation facility known as the "Salt Pit." 

Ridha Najjar, a suspected former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, often was left alone in the shadows, under a barrage of shrieking music, cold, shackled and hooded, his dark figure handcuffed to an overhead bar for 22 hours a day, according to a report released Tuesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee. 

Later, another detainee, Gul Rahman, believed to have served in a security detail for an Afghan warlord, would die in the Salt Pit. 

Congressional leaders reach deal on $1.1 trillion spending bill

Congressional leaders unveiled a massive $1.01 trillion spending bill Tuesday night that will keep most of the federal government funded through September. 

The legislation is expected to pass in the coming days and will allow the new Republican-controlled Congress to clear the decks of lingering spending issues, while setting the stage for a prolonged fight with President Obama over immigration policy. 

At 1,603 pages, the legislation provides money to fight the rise of the Islamic State and $5.4 billion to fight the threat of Ebola. But there is no additional money for the Affordable Care Act and there are modest spending cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency and Internal Revenue Service, two perennial GOP targets. Still, Democrats won bigger budgets for enforcement at agencies created after the 2008 economic collapse.

Obama pledges no repeat of harsh U.S. interrogation methods

President Barack Obama vowed on Tuesday that harsh U.S. interrogation methods will not take place on his watch, saying the techniques did significant damage to American interests abroad without serving broad counterterrorism efforts. 

Obama issued a written statement in response to a Senate report that detailed interrogation procedures carried out on terrorism suspects in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. 

"Rather than another reason to refight old arguments, I hope that today's report can help us leave these techniques where they belong, in the past," Obama said.

U.S. needs longer-range, stealthy drones: think tank

The U.S. military should invest more in longer-range, stealthy weapons, and especially unmanned vehicles, to leverage current advantages and stay ahead of rapid advances by China, Russia and other potential foes, a Washington think tank said Tuesday. 

The report, released by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, acknowledged U.S. budget pressures and said funding for new weapons could come from base closures, cuts in personnel benefits and reductions in current modernization programs - such as the shorter-range Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jet - and even aircraft carriers. 

Former Navy Undersecretary Robert Martinage, who wrote the report after spending five years at the Pentagon, said it was meant to stimulate discussion as part of a major push by the Defense Department to accelerate technology developments and outpace gains by other countries.

Uber sued over unlawful business practices; Lyft settles

REPORTING FROM SAN FRANCISCO - Los Angeles and San Francisco district attorneys filed a consumer protection lawsuit against Uber on Tuesday, alleging that the popular ride-hailing company misleads consumers about the service's safety, overcharges them and thumbs its nose at the law. 

Meanwhile, prosecutors reached a settlement with Lyft, a competing service, which agreed to "play by the rules," Los Angeles Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said. The companies provide smartphone apps that allow riders and private-car drivers to link up for a taxi-like service that is typically quicker and cheaper than calling a cab. 

At a news conference Tuesday, San Francisco Dist. Atty. George Gascon accused Uber of making false and misleading statements about how it protects consumers and engaging in business practices that violate California law.

US Citizen Indicted In Israel For Plotting Terror Attacks

Jon Lester, Cubs agree to 6-year, $155 million deal per reports

The Chicago Cubs and free-agent starting pitcher Jon Lester agreed to a six-year, $155 million contract on Tuesday, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. 

Lester entered the Winter Meetings linked with the Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was expected all along to make his decision during the four-day event currently ongoing in San Diego. Chicago previously established itself as an early frontrunner's for Lester with an offer "north of $135 million," an amount that proved to be well short of the veteran left-hander's market value.
