Up to 700 feared dead after migrant boat sinks off LibyaCurry scores 34, Warriors beat Pelicans 106-99 in Game 1 (Yahoo Sports)

A migrant receives first aid upon disembarking at Palermo's harbor, Italy, after being rescued at sea, Saturday, April 18, 2015. Italian ships have picked up some 10,000 people, many of them refugees of war and persecution, over the past week, an unprecedented number in such a short period. The influx is putting pressure on Italy's shelter system and raising calls for a better response to the emergency.

Stephen Curry carried the Golden State Warriors to a huge lead, waving his arms and flexing his muscles with one acrobatic shot after another. Every time the New Orleans Pelicans pulled closer, Curry came back even better. Curry scored 34 points with an MVP-worthy performance, and the Warriors went up big before holding off the Pelicans 106-99 in their playoff opener Saturday. They smothered Anthony Davis and the Pelicans early on with the league's best defense, thrilling a gold shirt-wearing sellout crowd of 19,596 that rocked and roared most of the afternoon.


Oklahoma City and Boston bombings are linked by an enduring mysteryRose scores 23, Bulls beat Bucks 103-91 (Yahoo Sports)

He played like an MVP, and if he keeps it up, the Bulls will be a tough team to knock out. Rose had 23 points and seven assists in his first postseason game in three years, Jimmy Butler scored 25 points, and Chicago opened the playoffs with a 103-91 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night. It was quite a night for a superstar point guard making his first playoff appearance since he tore a knee ligament in the 2012 playoff opener against Philadelphia. ''You can't think that way when you're on the floor and you're in a battle,'' Rose said.


From Okla. City to 9/11: 20 years on, rescue workers who responded to both share a bondCrosby, Penguins get even with 4-3 win over Rangers (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this May 5, 1995 file photo, a large group of search and rescue crew attends a memorial service in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The blast killed 168 people _ including 19 children _ injured hundreds more and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to structures and vehicles in the downtown area. (AP Photo/Bill Waugh, Flle)It was just after 9 a.m. on April 19, 1995, when the bomb went off outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. It was one of those events that seem to make the world stop turning. At the time, it was the worst terror attack on U.S. soil. Lt. (now Capt.) Stephen Spall of the New York City Fire Department was driving home from his shift when he heard the news on the radio. He immediately called in to see if he needed to go back to work. The next day, he was on a plane to Oklahoma.

Sidney Crosby woke up, and so did the Pittsburgh Penguins. Crosby scored twice and the Penguins evened their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers with a 4-3 win Saturday night. The Rangers won Game 1 by making Crosby virtually invisible and keeping Evgeni Malkin out of the danger zone. On Saturday, both of them and the Penguins as a whole showed more jump, possessing the puck and keeping New York off-balance.


Life or death? Boston bomber's trial turns to sentencingHarden has 24 points, Rockets beat Mavs 118-108 in Game 1 (Yahoo Sports)

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is pictured in this handout photo presented as evidence by the U.S. Attorney's Office in BostonBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is set to return to court on Tuesday for the next phase of his trial, when prosecutors will argue that he should be sentenced to death for his role in the deadly attack in 2013. In sharp contrast to the guilt phase of the trial, when lawyers for the ethnic Chechen defendant did not contest that their client had killed three people and injured 264 in the bombing, the next four weeks are expected to feature emotional testimony from both sides as Tsarnaev fights for his life. The question of whether Tsarnaev, 21, should live or die is highly controversial around Boston. Polls have shown that a plurality of area residents, 49 percent, prefer a life sentence, and family members of two of the people he killed have also spoken out against executing him.


HOUSTON, TX - APRIL 18: James Harden #13 and Corey Brewer #33 of the Houston Rockets celebrate after a play against the Dallas Mavericks during Game One in the Western Conference Quarterfinals of the 2015 NBA Playoffs on April 18, 2015 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

James Harden loves games like the one Houston had Saturday night. ''They put two on the ball, me I make the pocket pass, I made the easy play and had confidence in my teammates to make the next one.'' Corey Brewer led the way in the fourth quarter, scoring 13 of his 15 points. Brewer made three 3-pointers in about 3 minutes in the fourth to keep the Mavericks at bay. He added another three points when he made a layup and a free throw to give Houston a 109-95 lead with 3 minutes left.


Survivors gather for 20th anniversary of Oklahoma City bombingSilfverberg's last-minute goal puts Ducks past Jets 2-1 (Yahoo Sports)

Nekia McCloud, PJ Allen, Brandon Denny, Chris Nguyen and Joseph Webb (L-R) reunite for the first time in ten years at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum in Oklahoma City, OklahomaBy Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - When Priscilla Salyers attends Sunday's anniversary ceremony for victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, she will be thinking how far she has come in fighting depression and survivor's guilt. She and hundreds of other survivors will bow their heads at the 20th Remembrance Ceremony at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, marking the day a cargo truck with more than two tons of explosives blew up, killing 168 people. Salyers plummeted five floors when the fuel-and-fertilizer bomb detonated at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. Anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh, who carried out the bombing, and accomplice Terry Nichols were tried and convicted on federal charges.


Although Jakob Silfverberg and the Anaheim Ducks realize they probably should stop waiting to win games in the third period, they've thrived on dramatic escapes and last-minute heroics all season. In each of their first two playoff games, they fell behind early, got rolling late - and eventually ran over the Winnipeg Jets. Silfverberg scored the tiebreaking goal with 21 seconds to play, and the Ducks rallied from another third-period deficit for a 2-1 victory Saturday night, taking a 2-0 lead on Winnipeg in their first-round series. After Patrick Maroon scored the tying power-play goal midway through the third period, Silfverberg took a puck off the boards and wheeled into the faceoff circle to put a shot past Ondrej Pavelec, setting off another cacophonous celebration at Honda Center.

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.
