|Senate clears White House-backed trade bill||Morales homers twice, drives in 5 runs in Royals' victory (Yahoo Sports)|
In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Senate passed bipartisan legislation Friday night to strengthen the administration's hand in global trade talks, clearing the way for a highly unpredictable summer showdown in the House.
Kendrys Morales is leading the American League with 37 RBIs. Morales hit two home runs and had five RBIs, Chris Young gave up six hits in six innings and the Kansas City Royals defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 5-0 Friday night. Morales hit a three-run homer with two out in the first.
|Fierce gunbattle kills 43 in west Mexico cartel territory||Marlins lose to Orioles 8-5; Alvarez and Latos go on DL (Yahoo Sports)|
ECUANDUREO, Mexico (AP) — The latest in a series of clashes between Mexican authorities and a powerful, fast-growing drug cartel turned into the deadliest confrontation in recent memory, with 42 suspected gang gunmen and one Federal Police officer killed during a three-hour firefight at a remote western ranch.
Even after Friday's game, the losses kept coming for the Miami Marlins. First the Marlins stumbled to another defeat, leaving them 0-8 on their homestand and still winless after five games under new manager Dan Jennings. Then two-fifths of their rotation went on the disabled list - right-handers Henderson Alvarez and Mat Latos.
|GOP presidential candidate defends Josh Duggar||James leads Cavs to 94-82 win over Hawks, 2-0 series lead (Yahoo Sports)|
One is enough for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as long as it's the King. LeBron James scored 30 points and the Cavaliers took total command of the Eastern Conference final even without injured star Kyrie Irving, beating the Atlanta Hawks 94-82 on Friday night for a 2-0 lead with the series heading to Ohio. Cleveland pulled away with a dominating third quarter.
|Safety measures ordered for failed oil pipeline in California||Lundqvist stands tall, Rangers beat Lightning 5-1 in Game 4 (Yahoo Sports)|
By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Owners of an oil pipeline that burst in California this week must take numerous corrective measures, including an in-depth analysis of factors contributing to the spill and a plan to fix any flaws found, before they can restart the line, U.S. safety officials said on Friday. The corrective action order issued on Thursday by the U.S. Transportation Department's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration, or PHMSA, is not regarded as a disciplinary enforcement sanction against the company, Plains All American Pipeline LP , officials said.
Henrik Lundqvist and a couple of other old standbys picked a nice time to reassert themselves for the New York Rangers. New York's star goalie reverted to his reliable ways after two subpar performances, and Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis emerged from playoff scoring droughts Friday night to help the Rangers shut down the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-1 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. Nash had two goals and an assist, and St. Louis - the former Tampa Bay captain - contributed a third-period goal as New York evened the best-of-7 series 2-2 heading back home for Game 5 on Sunday night.
|Quadruple-murder suspect held without bond in Washington||Harper, Scherzer carry Nationals to 2-1 win over Phillies (Yahoo Sports)|
Daron Wint, 34, of Lanham, Maryland, is accused of holding construction business owner Savvas Savopoulos and the others captive until he got $40,000 in cash, then killing them and setting fire to their mansion, according to court documents. Acting U.S. Attorney Vincent Cohen Jr. said he was being held without bond.
Scoring two runs with Max Scherzer on the mound is all the offense the Washington Nationals need for wins these days. Bryce Harper hit another home run and Scherzer had another dominant outing to help the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win. Ian Desmond's RBI double drove in Scherzer from first base with the go-ahead run in the sixth.

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.
