"I have to be more of a player out there on the court and not worry about anything, not complain. Just do what I do best Howard was not happy after getting only five shots in the Lakers' 95-83 loss Monday to Chicago. He kept telling reporters to "look at the stat sheet" after the game. "That was immature," he said Wednesday. "I shouldn't have done it. "I've just got to go out there and dominate defensively and make it tough for teams. I just have to get back to doing that and not worry about the offense." Some Lakers fans think Howard should be traded before the Feb. 21 deadline. He becomes a free agent July 1.
"I understand why they're saying that because they feel like I have an opportunity to just walk away," Howard said. "That is my choice at the end of the season but right now my focus is tonight and us doing something real special in L.A. We have that opportunity and we can't close the door on the opportunity that we have in front of us. We can turn this thing around." Howard, however, would not commit to a future with the Lakers. "We're not discussing that," he said. "Right now, our goal is to win.
All I want to do is win. I have to put all my energy into winning and sacrifice whatever I have to do and humble myself." Howard also tried to reset the team's expectations ahead of Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. "I think this will be the start of a new season for us tonight. Hopefully our effort and energy is where it needs to be," he said. Of course, Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni used similar words in saying the team needed to restart its season last week. The Lakers (17-24) beat Cleveland and Milwaukee but have lost three in a row since then.

"Today we're going to take a little trip to our roots," CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, in making the announcement.
He described Facebook as a huge database before pointing out that "just like a database, you should be able to query it." The Newsfeed answers the question "What's going on?" and Timeline answers "Who is this person?" But what about everything else? We'll be able to answer other questions using something called "Graph Search."
In addition to launching Graph Search, Facebook is also incorporating Microsoft's Bing search results in Facebook searches. (Microsoft owns a 1.6 percent share of Facebook.) Doing search on Facebook has often been an exercise in frustration, and Graph Search may help to change that. Will Graph Search challenge Google? No, but it could be a start to making Facebook's nemesis even more nervous, although Zuckerberg emphasized the new tool is "not Web search."
Graph Search is a privacy-aware search, Zuckerberg said. That means that it only searches content which has been shared with you and that your search results will differ from the search results someone else will see ... even if you enter the same exact queries.
You can initially use Graph Search search through people, photos, places, and interests.
For example, let's say you want to play matchmaker for a friend who recently moved to New York City from Germany. You could search for all friends-of-friends who happen to reside in New York City, lived in Germany at some point, and are single. Ta da! You'll have a list of the ideal matches for your pal. Or perhaps you need to find a dentist. You can easily search for dentists who are liked by your friends.
There was a lot of emphasis on privacy and Zuckerberg explained that a message will appear on users' Newsfeeds to remind them that they should review their privacy settings. Even though Graph Search is privacy-conscious, some slightly embarrassing content could always come up and haunt you.
Zuckerberg emphasized that Graph Search is currently a beta product, meaning that it isn't quite perfect just yet.
"Even as an early product, Graph Search is a completely new way for people to get information on Facebook," he says. If you want to start using the new feature, you can sign up for the beta by heading here.

A redesigned 2012Continental GT with a new, more fuel-efficient V8 engine no doubt boosted business, as did the supercoupe's higher-powered Speed version unveiled last fall.
Now the automaker is pushing hard into motorsports again to maintain the momentum. It's been nearly 10 years since Bentley had a one-two finish in the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. A Continental GT3 concept unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show previewed a real race car being prepped in the company's new motorsports department in Crewe, England. It is set to do battle late this year.
Meanwhile, Bentley's usual pace of new unveilings continues, with an exclusive Speed version of the Continental GT convertible — no longer called the GTC — taking the spotlight at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week, a few months after the fixed-roof version was unveiled.
A Baptist minister, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president. King's efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. There, he established his reputation as one of the greatest orators in American history. He also established his reputation as a radical, and became an object of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's COINTELPRO for the rest of his life.
On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. In the next few years leading up to his death, he expanded his focus to include poverty and the Vietnam War—alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled "Beyond Vietnam". King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., called the Poor People's Campaign.
King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. Hundreds of streets in the U.S. and beyond have been renamed in his honor.

An annual bug is making its way around the workplace and classroom: the Call of Duty contagion.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II, expected to be the biggest video game release of the year, hits stores Tuesday. And hundreds of thousands of gamers are expected to line up at thousands of stores, including Best Buy and GameStop, to get the game at midnight and play all night long — and perhaps all day Tuesday.
Some fans of the popular first-person shooter combat game already have taken the day off. But don't be surprised if a few co-workers and students call in sick Tuesday morning suffering from a Black Ops II hangover.
"I have a few folks on my staff who are passionate gamers, and I know for a fact they are going to be taking the day off," says Chris Koller, vice president of Best Buy's home business group. "I signed the day-off slip for them. ... It's an event. They do it every year."
The chain plans to have about 900 stores open Monday night — about one-third of which will let customers play the game on big-screen LG 3D TVs starting at 9 p.m.

Nafis and the undercover agent parked the van next to the New York Federal Reserve Bank, exited the van, and walked to a nearby hotel. There, Nafis recorded a video statement to the American public that he intended to release in connection with the attack. During this video statement, Nafis stated, "We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom." Nafis then repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, attempted to detonate the bomb, which had been assembled using the inert explosives provided by the undercover agent. JTTF agents arrested Nafis immediately after he attempted to detonate the bomb. Throughout the morning, federal, state, and local law enforcement officials, working with the JTTF, closely monitored the movements of Nafis as he attempted to implement the attack, including assuring that the van was not stopped by NYPD counterterrorism units active in lower Manhattan.
Al Qaeda operatives and those they have inspired have tried time and again to make New York City their killing field. We are up to 15 plots and counting since 9/11, with the Federal Reserve now added to a list of iconic targets that previously included the Brooklyn Bridge, the New York Stock Exchange and Citicorp Center. After 11 years without a successful attack, it's understandable if the public becomes complacent. But that's a luxury law enforcement can't afford. Vigilance is our watchword now and into the foreseeable future. That's why we have over 1,000 NYPD officers assigned to counterterrorism duties every day and why we built the domain awareness system. I want to commend the NYPD detectives and FBI agents of the Joint Terrorism Task Force for the work they did in the case.
