6. "With former Chicago police Cmdr. Jon Burge in prison for lying about the torture of criminal suspects, federal officials have turned their investigation to detectives who worked under Burge and to former Cook County prosecutors, the Tribune has learned.

"FBI agents and federal prosecutors from Chicago and the Justice Department's civil rights office in Washington are looking into the testimony and actions of several detectives who worked for Burge, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

"The authorities are also examining the role of assistant state's attorneys who once worked in the office's felony review unit, visiting the widow of one former prosecutor just two weeks ago, the sources said. Felony review prosecutors play a crucial role in approving criminal charges against suspects and in some cases help direct investigations and question suspects."

7. "Mayor Rahm Emanuel has quietly disbanded the $3.6 million-a-year Office of Compliance that former Mayor Richard M. Daley created in 2007 to get around an inspector general who had embarrassed him," the Sun-Times reports.

This feat placed third on the U.S. Women's World Cup all-time views list behind the Brazil-U.S semi-final match in 1999, which had an electronic audience of 4,924,000 people, and the Women's World Cup final between U.S.-China, which attracted an audience of 17,975,000 people."
