The only thing better than Tom Brady’s quarterbacking over the past month has been Tom Brady’s Facebooking. The New England Patriots quarterback, or whoever is running his account, has suddenly become a social media powerhouse, posting funny pictures, timely Photoshops and self-deprecating #TBT photos on his Facebook page. All of this has developed over the past month, which just so happens to coincide with Brady and the New England Patriots developing into legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

Here was Brady on Wednesday, celebrating the start of the NBA season.

GENEVA – Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin usually wears a perfect poker face. But last week in Shangahi, the icy-cold Russian president came awfully close to bursting into a big grin.

And why not? Putin had just stolen a march on his western rivals. The US-British attempt to wound Russia’s economy and punish Putin for disobedience had just blown up in their red faces.

After 20 years of difficult talks, Russia and China had just signed a huge deal that called for Russia to export  38 billion cubic meters of gas worth some $400 billion to China. The agreement begins in 2018 and will involve one of the globe’s largest engineering projects that links Russia’s remote gas fields to China’s pipeline system…
