|Report: Alps crash pilot told ex 'everyone will know my name'||Notre Dame eyes history, shot at upsetting No. 1 Kentucky (Yahoo Sports)|
German prosecutors cite "medical documents that suggest an existing illness and appropriate medical treatment."
Beware, Kentucky. Notre Dame's got next. The Fighting Irish, with a long history of slaying basketball behemoths, stand in Kentucky's path to the Final Four and perhaps the first undefeated season in the college game since Bobby Knight's Indiana squad ran the table 39 years ago. On Saturday night, Notre Dame gets another chance at bringing down this team of teams, one some feel is invincible - you know, like the 1974 UCLA Bruins, who had their 88-game winning streak stopped by ND.
|Hope dims as rescue workers search for 2 in NYC blast||Arizona-Wisconsin Preview (Yahoo Sports)|
NEW YORK (AP) — Hope dimmed as emergency workers continued their search Saturday for two people still missing after an apparent gas explosion leveled three Manhattan apartment buildings and investigators worked to piece together what exactly caused the blast that injured 22.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- - Arizona guard Gabe York remembers having the ball in his hands, taking a couple of dribbles and failing to get a shot off before time expired. The Badgers advanced to the Final Four for the first time under coach Bo Ryan a year ago, and the Wildcats went back to the desert, unable to deliver the same initial appearance for coach Sean Miller. This time, the Badgers (34-3) have moved up from the No. 2 seed to No. 1, led by 7-footer Frank Kaminsky. ''Obviously, it's icing on the cake that we get to play Wisconsin in the Elite Eight and have a chance to go to the Final Four,'' York said.
|Decorated Boston cop in coma after being shot in face||Lucic scores 2 goals in Bruins' 4-2 win over Rangers (Yahoo Sports)|
BOSTON (AP) — A decorated Boston police officer remained in a medically induced coma Saturday, a night after he was shot in the face during a traffic stop that ended when other officers fatally shot his attacker, the city's police commissioner said.
If the Boston Bruins want an example of what's needed in the final few games to make the playoffs, they can simply watch a replay of the first period against the New York Rangers. Milan Lucic scored twice in the first 10 minutes, Carl Soderberg also scored in the first period, and the Bruins spoiled New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's return after a long layoff with a 4-2 victory over the Rangers. The Bruins moved ahead 1-0 less than 2 minutes into the game when a rebound caromed into the net off Lucic's right skate. The Bruins went on to build a 3-0 lead after one.
|Student group that revealed racist SAE video causes change at Oklahoma||UConn steamrolls past Texas 105-54, reaches regional final (Yahoo Sports)|
At a press conference announcing the findings of an investigation into a racist chant that prompted the shuttering of Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s Oklahoma University chapter and the expulsion of two fraternity members, OU President David Boren saluted the student activists of Unheard, who first brought the now widely viewed SAE video to light.
Geno Auriemma reached another milestone in record fashion. The Hall of Famer became the second coach to achieve 100 victories in the NCAA Tournament as his UConn Huskies pulled off a record rout of Texas, 105-54, on Saturday in the Sweet 16. ''That's lots of wins, 100 wins in the NCAA tournament,'' Auriemma said. ''Some people don't get to play in the NCAA tournament ever or play a couple games.
|Yemen's president calls Shiite rebels 'puppets of Iran'||A-Rod homers in Yankees' 10-2 loss to Orioles (Yahoo Sports)|
SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (AP) — Yemen's embattled president on Saturday called Shiite rebels who forced him to flee the country "puppets of Iran," directly blaming the Islamic Republic for the chaos there and demanding airstrikes against rebel positions continue until they surrender.
Alex Rodriguez hit his third homer and raised his batting average to .306, new shortstop Didi Gregorius gave New York a scare and the Yankees lost 10-2 to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. Rodriguez hit a long first-pitch leadoff shot in the seventh off Brian Matusz. Earlier, A-Rod worked out at first base for 10 minutes on a back field with infield coach Joe Espada in final preparation for his first start there Sunday against Houston.

Saudi Arabia Views and Opinions
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.
