10 Things to Know for Today from The Associated Press

:

Looking back at the stories to remember from the past week:

1. THREE DAYS OF RIGOROUS CROSS-EXAMINATION FOR OSCAR PISTORIUS AT MURDER TRIAL

The disabled athlete, who took the stand this week, contradicted himself at times Friday as he sparred with chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel over what led to the shooting of model Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius testified he was hobbling fearfully on his stumps with his pistol toward his bathroom after hearing a possible intruder. Nel said an argument between the couple was the "only reasonable explanation" for why Pistorius shot her.

2. HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY KATHLEEN SEBELIUS RESIGNS

Obama praised her Friday for helping steer his health care law's comeback after a rocky rollout, even as he nominated his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, to replace Sebelius. Her tenure was marred by widespread technical problems with the sign-up website, bringing calls from Republicans for her resignation.

3. BUS TAKING STUDENTS TO VISIT CALIFORNIA UNIVERSITY CRASHES; 10 KILLED

Among the dead in the fiery crash Thursday were students, chaperones and the drivers of the bus and a FedEx truck. The bus was taking the low-income students from high schools to Humboldt State University in northern California. Dozens were hospitalized.
