|John Kasich suspends campaign in emotional speech||3 for all: Cavaliers make record 25 3-pointers, rout Hawks (Yahoo Sports)|
Republican presidential candidate John Kasich officially ended his bid for the White House in an address from Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday evening — a decision that all but assures Donald Trump’s position as the GOP nominee.
Dropping jumpers from every corner and angle, the Cleveland Cavaliers drained an NBA record 25 3-pointers - the most in any regular season or playoff game - during a 123-98 runaway win over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night in Game 2 of their second-round series. J.R. Smith made seven 3s as the Cavs, looking like an Eastern Conference version of Golden State's Splash Brothers, had the most prolific outside shooting game of any team in league history. From the outset, they were on target and on a tear, and afterward LeBron James struggled to explain it.
|President Obama drinks the water in Flint||Hornqvist scores in OT, Penguins beat Capitals 3-2 (Yahoo Sports)|
Barack Obama traveled to Flint, Mich., on Wednesday to meet with local and federal officials to discuss the water crisis there — and to reassure families that his administration is doing everything it can to make the water in Flint safe to drink. To help illustrate his point, Obama drank from a glass of filtered water during a press briefing at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, which has become a hub for the response to the water crisis. “Generally, I haven’t been doing stunts, but here you go,“ Obama said as he took a small sip of the water.
Patric Hornqvist makes a living by working in tight spaces. Given a rare moment of freedom from his usual spot parked in front of the opponent's net, the Pittsburgh Penguins forward pushed the Washington Capitals to the brink of elimination. Hornqvist fired a loose puck between Braden Holtby's legs 2:34 into overtime to give the Penguins a 3-2 victory Wednesday night in Game 4 of the tightly contested second-round series.
|Alberta declares emergency as fires threaten Canada oil town||Bosh officially declared out for remainder of Heat season (Yahoo Sports)|
Alberta declared a state of emergency Wednesday as crews frantically held back wind-whipped wildfires that have already torched 1,600 homes and other buildings in Canada's main oil sands city of Fort McMurray, ...
Chris Bosh's season is now officially over, regardless of how far the Miami Heat advance in the postseason. The Heat and Bosh made the announcement Wednesday afternoon after the team practiced in Toronto, ending the recent speculation that Bosh would try to return to the court during the playoffs. It's the second consecutive year that Bosh's season ended at the break because of problems with clotting, and the joint statement came one day after the National Basketball Players Association urged Bosh and the team to resolve any issues they have about his immediate future.
|US government: North Carolina LGBT law violates civil rights||Yankees place Alex Rodriguez on DL with hamstring injury (Yahoo Sports)|
A North Carolina law limiting protections to LGBT people violates federal civil rights protections and can’t be enforced, the U.S. Justice Department said Wednesday, putting the state on notice that it is in danger of being sued and losing hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding. In a letter to Gov. Pat McCrory, the Justice Department said federal officials view the state law as violating federal Civil Rights Act protections barring workplace discrimination based on sex. Provisions of the state law directed at transgender state employees violate their anti-discrimination protections, the letter said.
Alex Rodriguez won't be around in the next two weeks to help the New York Yankees attempt to get out of last place in the AL East. Rodriguez was placed on the 15-day list Wednesday with a strained right hamstring. The injury occurred Tuesday night while Rodriguez was running out a grounder in the fifth inning of a 4-1 loss to the Orioles.
|DEA and US Attorney Join Prince Death Investigation Amid Reports of Drug Addiction||Nyquist draws No. 13 post as early 3-1 Kentucky Derby fav (Yahoo Sports)|
The late singer reportedly sought treatment for prescription drug abuse shortly before his death.
Doug O'Neill was all smiles after early 3-1 favorite Nyquist drew the No. 13 post for the 142nd Kentucky Derby. Nyquist left from the same spot when he won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year at Keeneland, part of his 7-0 career record.

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.
