|Suspect arrested in D.C. quadruple murder||Ducks bounce back after tough OT loss for 2-1 series lead (Yahoo Sports)|
Daron Dylon Wint is accused in the slayings of a wealthy family and their housekeeper.
Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau knew the answer without having to ask the question. ''Nobody mentioned anything,'' Boudreau said after the Ducks' 2-1 victory over the Blackhawks on Thursday night, ''because they all wanted to play.'' Good thing, too, because goaltender Frederik Andersen and the Anaheim back line were tested repeatedly while killing off five Chicago power plays to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. Andersen made 27 saves, but nearly as important, the players in front of him combined to block 27 shots, compared to just nine blocks for the Blackhawks.
|South Korean court frees Korean Air 'nut rage' executive||Warriors hold off Harden, Rockets 99-98 to take 2-0 lead (Yahoo Sports)|
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A South Korean court on Friday suspended the prison term of a former Korean Air executive whose onboard "nut rage" tantrum delayed a flight last year, immediately ending her incarceration.
Now the Golden State Warriors have the Western Conference finals in their grasp. Stephen Curry scored 33 points before Harden lost the ball in the closing seconds to end a spectacular duel between the NBA MVP and runner-up, and the Warriors held off the Houston Rockets 99-98 on Thursday night to take a 2-0 lead in the series. Harden rallied the Rockets from 17 points down in the second quarter and had a chance to finish off the comeback in the fourth.
|Ireland votes in historic referendum on gay marriage||Big days for deGrom, Duda lead Mets over Cardinals 5-0 (Yahoo Sports)|
Ireland took to the polls on Friday to vote on whether same-sex marriage should be legal, in a referendum that has exposed sharp divisions between communities in this traditionally Catholic nation. "This burden and pressure that's been on (gay couples), living in the shadows -- that can be removed on Friday by voting 'Yes'," Kenny said.
The reigning NL Rookie of the Year retired his final 23 batters following a first-inning single, and Lucas Duda hit two long homers to nearly the same spot Thursday during the New York Mets' 5-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. In his latest stingy start at Citi Field, the only blemish was Matt Carpenter's clean single with one out in the first. John Mayberry Jr. put the slumping Mets lineup on the scoreboard with an RBI single in the fourth.
|Federal judge rules again that gay couples have right to wed in Alabama||Curry, James unanimous selections to All-NBA first team (Yahoo Sports)|
(Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday reaffirmed her earlier ruling that same-sex couples in Alabama have a right to wed under the Constitution, but she put the ruling on hold until the U.S. Supreme Court issues a landmark decision on gay marriage. U.S. District Judge Callie Granade in January overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage, in a ruling that went into effect the following month and led probate judges throughout much of the state to begin issuing licenses to the couples. In March, the Alabama Supreme Court ordered probate judges to stop issuing marriage licenses.
Golden State's Stephen Curry, the league MVP, and LeBron James are the only unanimous selections to the All-NBA first team. New Orleans' Anthony Davis and Memphis center Marc Gasol joined Curry as newcomers on the team. Curry and James, who are three victories from meeting in the NBA Finals, each received first-team votes on all 129 ballots Thursday.
|Washington quadruple slaying suspect arrested in city||Brewers' Smith ejected for having rosin, sunscreen on arm (Yahoo Sports)|
|By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The suspect in the killing of a Washington businessman and three others found in a torched mansion last week was arrested late on Thursday, police said. The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said the suspect, identified as 34-year-old Maryland man Daron Dylon Wint, was arrested in the city's northeast just before midnight local time by a U.S. Marshals Service-led task force. The bodies of businessman Savvas Savopoulos, his wife, son and housekeeper, were found inside the multi-million dollar house in a neighborhood near Vice President Joe Biden's official residence after a fire that police called "very suspicious." Earlier on Thursday, Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Wint was believed to be in Brooklyn.|
Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Will Smith was ejected for having rosin and sunscreen on his right forearm in the seventh inning Thursday night of a 10-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves. Smith confirmed that he put the substance on his forearm before warming up in the bullpen on a brisk night. ''It was chilly and kind of windy,'' Smith said.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
