It is unclear who leaked a list of questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask President Donald Trump. One possibility is that someone is seeking to ensure that, whatever happens to Mueller's investigation, the president is forced to confront them.

Don't worry: Technology may come and go, but some things never change. In the not-so-distant future, cars will drive themselves and men may become obsolete (sorry, guys), but home will always be home. It'll just be a heck of a lot smarter.
GANGNEUNG, South Korea — Goaltender Genevieve Lacasse was not visible amid the mess of American and Canadians around her, wrestling first for the puck, which the Americans had pushed to within inches of tying the game, then with each other, when the horn rang and the Canadians had won. In a blur of limbs and shoves, two players went to the ground. Referees separated the others.

Q: What is curling? Curling is contested on ice - called a sheet - with targets at either end, referred to as the house. The house is made up of 12-, 8- and 4-foot rings and the center, called a button. Teams take turns sliding a large granite stone, sometimes called a rock, from one end of the sheet toward the house at the other end. A curler can control the amount a rock will turn, or curl, by applying rotation to the handle.

DAEGWALLYEONG, South Korea — With artful simplicity and an earnest message, the opening ceremony delivered on its intent to make peace the star Friday night. It was aspirational, dreamy, idyllic.

Q: What is cross-country skiing? A: Everyone recognizes traditional cross-country skiing when they see it. In the Olympics, the races are much faster, of course, and skiers use different techniques depending on the event. Classic skiing requires the skis to remain parallel. Skiers can use both poles at the same time, or alternate poles. Classic courses are designed with machine-groomed tracks.
