8. WHAT COLOMBIA'S PANIC BUTTONS REALLY DO

A GPS-enabled "panic button" that Colombia's government has issued to help protect human-rights activists, labor organizers and journalists exposes them to more peril. The AP uncovered technical flaws that could let hostile parties disable the pocket-sized devices, eavesdrop on conversations and track users' movements.

9. WHERE POT COULD BE LEGAL BY 2018

Canadians could be able to smoke marijuana legally by next year, a senior government official says.

10. SENATORS TAKE UP STICKS FOR WOMEN'S HOCKEY PLAYERS
