officer to be killed in combat since 1970 during the Vietnam War. Greene, a 34-year U.S. Army veteran, also is the highest-ranked American officer killed in combat in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Body of US general killed in Afghan insider attack arrives at Dover AFB – U.S. – Stripes
It is unclear what led the shooter, identified as a man in his 20s, to hide Tuesday in a bathroom at the military training base near the capital, then emerge and open fire on a delegation of visiting American and European military officers, before being shot dead himself. Greenes death was the latest in what is a persistent problem endemic to Westerners training Afghan recruits: insider attacks.

Sixteen-year-old Beatrice “Tris” Prior (Shailene Woodley) is Abnegation by birth and Dauntless by choice she’s really a Divergent, though, which pits her against the Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet). Divergent stumbles out of the gate, largely because it’s hard to ignore its derivative nature: Tris’ ordeals often bring to mind those of The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, while all that’s missing from the ceremony in which each teen must choose his or her faction is Professor Dumbledore’s Sorting Hat. But as the story finds its own way, the film improves, offering a nice contrast in Dauntless leadership between the tough but tender Four (pursed-lipped Theo James) and the cruel and callous Eric (sneer-lipped Jai Courtney), placing Tris and the other recruits through some grueling tests (both mentally and physically), and generating some real tension as Jeanine and her fellow fascists instigate their coup d’etat. The film eventually overstays its welcome (often a risk with a running time on the other side of two hours) with a seemingly endless series of climaxes, and while the movie’s not quite accomplished enough to leave us breathlessly awaiting the next chapter (as did the last Hunger Games flick), it also doesn’t leave us wanting to avoid the sequel at all costs. In the YA film canon, that should be considered a positive.

Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor gave the 49ers fits with his mobility, making plays with both his arm and his feet.
