The soft drink giant is one of the few big U.S. firms with major investments in Russia. And the reasons why say a lot about why the U.S. has less leverage in Russia than it might like.

Technology talk is often focused on software and programs that run inside our devices. But a "maker movement" is driving interest toward making the physical devices themselves.
The Stedman elementary school is looking to end the school year a week early in order to allow a renovation project to begin.
School administrators wrote a letter to the Commissioner of Education and Early Development, Mike Hanley, asking for the state’s permission to have May 30 be the last day of school for students. That would be four days earlier than scheduled and one day short of the minimum 170 days of student contact required by state law.
In the district’s letter it states that, according to the contractor, if the renovation can start early the project could be completed in one summer instead of two. Following the new schedule, the building would be ready for staff by August 19, the first day the principal starts the new school year.
The renovation project worth $2.3 million will replace the school’s exterior walls and windows.
Also at their meeting tonight, the school board will consider having a memorial policy, a policy that addresses in-school memorials, services and practices.
The school board meets at 7 p.m. in the Assembly Chambers. KFSK will be broadcasting the meeting live.
Former Gov. Sarah Palin whipped up thousands of the faithful this weekend, as the closing speaker of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, near Washington, D.C.
Palin’s 45-minute speech was part rallying cry, part stand-up comedy as she landed one zinger after another.
“I love coming back here because there are always so many young people, or, as you’re know by the folks across the river, ‘ObamaCare suckers,’” she said.
She scoffed at Democrats and President Obama, but she also lobbed harsh words at the mainstream Republicans in Congress. She says they betrayed the Tea Party voters who won them seats in 2010. She also says she’s optimistic about the election this fall.
“In this awakening, eyes are open, we’re stronger now, we’re wiser now, and God knows, we are hungry and there aren’t enough low-information voters in the country to save the other side this time, if we don’t retreat,” she said.
Palin isn’t just a political figure these days but also a reality show celebrity. To the audience at this conference, her star never fell. When she referred to the 2016 presidential race, the crowd started chanting.
“I should have, I didn’t get to run this morning, I was so busy man. I did some hot yoga,” Palin said as the crowd shouted, “Run, Sarah, run.”
Her new show starts next month on the Sportsman Channel. It’s called “Amazing America,” a name she teased into her speech.
