Calendar: Week of February 26

Here's a look at the week ahead on our "Sunday Morning" Calendar:

     
Monday marks the 25th anniversary of the first attack, in 1993, on New York's World Trade Center -- a truck bomb explosion in a basement parking garage that killed six people and injured more than 1,000 others.

      
Tuesday is International Polar Bear Day, highlighting the challenges polar bears face in a warming Arctic.



         
Wednesday sees -- and HEARS -- The Oscar Concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, performing suites from this year's Oscar-nominated scores.

Thursday marks the start of Women's History Month. This year's theme: "Nevertheless, She Persisted."

      
Friday is Read Across America Day, encouraging children to read, fittingly celebrated every year on the anniversary of the birth of Dr. Seuss.

        
And Saturday, Oscar Eve, sees the Golden Raspberry Awards (or, the Razzies) honoring, as it were, Hollywood's WORST films and performances.

Leading this year's Razzies race is "Transformers: The Last Knight" with nine nominations, including Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Mark Wahlberg), Worst Screen Combo ("Any Combination of Two Humans, Two Robots or Two Explosions"), and Worst Screenplay (there was a screenplay?).
