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.
