Comet ISON's journey from outside the solar system toward the sun reaches its crescendo Thursday, and you can follow along live through a NASA live webcast. The comet will pass less than 700,000 miles from the sun's surface. Scientists and amateur astronomers will be paying close attention to any available observations of the comet to see if it survives its first close encounter with a star. If it stays together, it could mean some spectacular skywatching in December. But it's possible that the comet's nucleus of dust and ice could break into pieces or disintegrate.

When the Ravens resumed control of the football at their 16-yard line with just under five minutes left to play Sunday, it felt as if the Chicago Bears' end zone was 184 yards away, not 84. Their offense had struggled to get traction, both literally and figuratively, in the second half and now trailed by a field goal. Facing long odds of winning, the Ravens needed to put together one efficient drive. And they would. After two incompletions to start the drive, their win probability was at 22 percent, according to Advanced NFL Stats.

“PBS NewsHour,” once one of the nation's most influential broadcasts, is on the brink of marginalization - if not extinction. And for those of us who believe TV needs at least one noncommercial, nightly, national newscast in these increasingly corporate times, that's a cause for concern. The “NewsHour” has lost 48 percent of its audience in the past eight years, going from an average audience of 2.5 million viewers a night in 2005 to 1.3 million in fiscal year 2013 (PBS shows are measured in fiscal years)
