After Russia's recent actions in Ukraine, it's no surprise that other countries bordering Russia are wondering where they stand on Vladimir Putin's shopping list. That they are on the list is a given. Article 61 of Russia's Constitution promises that "the Russian Federation shall guarantee its citizens defense and patronage beyond its boundaries. " In other words, Russia shall protect any Russian citizen who is mistreated while outside Russia. On its face, Article 61 may seem reasonable.

Over the weekend, Amazon announced the Dash, a small device that makes it quick and easy for users to add groceries and household items to their AmazonFresh shopping list. The Dash is a black-and-white, wand-shaped gadget that adds to a customer's shopping list when he or she uses it to scan an item's barcode or holds down a microphone button and says a product's name. The Dash connects to users' Wi-Fi networks so that it can add items to customers' lists. "Conveniently refill and restock your home's everyday essentials, and have fun doing it," an Amazon Web page reads.

After two introductory weekends with his players, the Chargers' new defensive coordinator has formulated a shopping list. It's a rather short one, considering the multiple flaws that have been in evidence in recent years. Ron Lynn, the new defensive chieftain, would like to add a proven inside linebacker and perhaps another cornerback to his cast. "We'll always want more help until the day we have 11 guys who can dominate every play," Lynn said.

A reader who signs his name but identifies himself only as a husband, writes to me as follows: "Just as you doubt that they'll ever be able to make a computer sophisticated enough to recognize the humor in 'Take my wife. Please,' so I doubt the same thing about a shopping list my wife handed me a while back. Everybody I've shown it to chuckles; some even laugh out loud.

Billy Hutchinson.

Shopping for your family during the holidays may seem like feeding an army. Think again. Think about Uncle Sam. He does feed the Army, not to mention the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines and the Coast Guard--whether on aircraft carriers or submarines, in dining halls, veterans hospitals or commissaries.

Don't worry about Padre General Manager Jack McKeon worrying himself thin this weekend while waiting for free agent pitcher Bruce Hurst to make up his mind. McKeon has better things to do. Such as chase Dale Murphy. Thus reads the first name--in bold, brash capital letters--on the shopping list McKeon will bring to Atlanta Saturday evening for baseball's winter meetings. Sure, the Atlanta Braves' right-fielder is one of the best and most expensive ($2 million) players in baseball.

Nailing down the latest superfruit in vogue can be an elusive goal, a quest largely driven by modern marketing and, quite possibly, producers of television's "The Dr. Oz Show. " Origins in advertising, not science, complicate the matter: The term "superfruit" has only been used for about a decade to sell the potential health benefits of nutrient-dense fruits. "There's always a 'latest and greatest' superfruit," said Robin Rogosin, a nutritional supplement and body care buyer for Whole Foods Market.

When I tell people I'm taking a canning and preserving course, they often say they're afraid to make jams or pickles because of botulism, a paralyzing and sometimes fatal illness that can be food-borne. Our teacher, Ernest Miller, took that fear head-on in our second class. I think we all were wide-eyed when he said that with two small jars of the botulinum toxin , we could rid the planet of all its humans. OK, then, time to listen carefully to the rules and regulations about making things safe.

After a dinner of pasta from Italy sauced with artichokes that had been grown here, then shipped to the East Coast for canning before being shipped back, and a salad with fennel from Mexico and lettuce from goodness-knows-where, my family and I sat down at our kitchen table to argue over a shopping list. We have agreed to purchase only local foods for the month of June, but were having second thoughts after I discovered the cost of a locally raised, pastured chicken - a steep $35. I guess we won't be eating much meat.

— These should be relatively quiet winter meetings for the Angels compared with last year, when they stunned baseball with their one-day, $317.5-million splurge on free agents Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson. "That was a splash for all time," General Manager Jerry Dipoto said. "I wouldn't think that to be a common event. " That doesn't mean the Angels aren't thinking big. They still hope to retain free-agent pitcher Zack Greinke, though there has been heavy speculation that Greinke's price tag, which could exceed six years and $150 million, already has soared out of their range.

(Editor's note: Staff writer Mary MacVean tried out trainer Jackie Warner's diet and exercise plan from her recent book “10 Pounds in 10 Days.” Here's her experience.) Day 1 There are always new diet books out there. You've got to wonder: If we could make them work, would the publishing industry have to tighten its own belt a few notches? Failure is a staple of the diet industry. Still, when I saw Jackie Warner 's latest book, “10 Pounds in 10 Days,” I thought, “OK, why not?

In 2001, on the eve of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, President George W. Bush gave Pakistan's then-leader, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, a choice: He was either with us or against us. Musharraf chose to become an ally, but the question ever since has been whether that shotgun marriage can mature into a healthy adult relationship. At times, the prospect has seemed far from reach. The world's second-most-populous Muslim country is caught in a brutal internal struggle between extremism and moderation.

Speculation has already begun in Chicago and New York. The White Sox need a versatile defender who can lead off, the Cubs need more speed and on-base ability at the top of the order, the Yankees want a leadoff man to push Derek Jeter to the second spot. And Chone Figgins , the Angels third baseman and leadoff batter extraordinaire, is at the top of each team's winter shopping list.
