|Protests force Trump into a ditch, en route to make his California pitch||Tunsil tries to tamp down furor regarding his draft freefall (Yahoo Sports)|
BURLINGAME, Calif.—A little over a month before California’s pivotal Republican presidential primary, Donald Trump began his official wooing of party delegates Friday, headlining a kickoff lunch at the state’s annual GOP convention. But Trump’s appearance was nearly derailed by massive protests outside the Hyatt Regency near the San Francisco airport, where the convention is being held. The protests blocked Trump’s motorcade route, forcing the candidate and his Secret Service detail to abandon their vehicles on a nearby highway, jump a barricade wall and cross a ditch to get to the hotel’s back entrance—movements that were captured by television news helicopters.
Laremy Tunsil kept repeating the same answer to questions about his freefall in the NFL draft, the social media hacking that cost him millions and the investigation he stirred at Ole Miss. ''I'm just here to talk about the Miami Dolphins,'' Tunsil said several times Friday. At his introductory news conference with the Dolphins, the big tackle tried to tamp down the furor surrounding his slide to the 13th pick in the draft.
|Hawaii selects businesses for medical pot but excludes actor||Wade, Heat force Game 7 with 97-90 win over Hornets (Yahoo Sports)|
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii selected eight businesses Friday to open medical marijuana dispensaries — but not one owned by Woody Harrelson.
Dwyane Wade hadn't made a 3-point shot since December, enduring a streak of 22 consecutive misses. The 34-year-old star hit both 3-pointers he attempted, including a big one with 46 seconds left, finishing with 23 points as the Heat beat the Charlotte Hornets 97-90 to force a decisive game in the first-round series. ''Once I saw one fall, anybody who is scorer knows the basket gets a little bigger,'' Wade said.
|Linebackers Smith, Jack drafted despite knee issues||Lakers hire Warriors assistant Luke Walton as head coach (Yahoo Sports)|
The NFL dream was still alive for linebackers Jaylon Smith and Myles Jack, who were selected on the second day of the draft despite concerns over knee injuries that disrupted their college football careers. Smith was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys with the 34th overall selection, a higher spot than many expected because of the major knee injury he suffered playing for Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl on January 1. University of California at Los Angeles linebacker Myles Jack's agonizing wait ended when the Jacksonville Jaguars added to their offseason overhaul on defense by drafting him 36th overall.
Luke Walton is coming home to rebuild the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers reached an agreement Friday night with the Golden State assistant to become their head coach, dramatically choosing a young leader for their new era after Kobe Bryant. The Lakers grabbed Walton just five days after they fired Byron Scott, who led the 16-time NBA champions to the two worst seasons in franchise history.
|Cellphone in missing Florida teens case to be reviewed by Apple||Pacers force Game 7 against Raptors with 101-83 win (Yahoo Sports)|
If Apple retrieves anything from the water-damaged phone that relates to the day the boys disappeared - including photos, texts and social media posts - the data will be given to a judge, who will decide if it is evidence and whether it may be shared with the families, according to a report by WPLG television in Miami. The agreement puts to rest, for now, a row between the families of Austin Stephanos, 14, who owned the iPhone 6, and his friend Perry Cohen, also 14, who borrowed it to communicate with his family the day they disappeared in July 2015 off the Atlantic Coast of South Florida, according to the report. Cohen's family wanted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to treat the phone as evidence in an open missing persons case, but the agency instead on returning it to Stephanos' family, the station reported.
This time, the Indiana Pacers buckled down and fought back. Reeling from a fourth-quarter collapse followed by a sluggish start, the Pacers turned things around just in time with an 18-0 run to save their season. Paul George and George Hill combined for 24 second-half points Friday to help Indiana pull away for a 101-83 victory over the Raptors to force a decisive Game 7 on Sunday in Toronto.
|Lakers announce Luke Walton has been hired as head coach||Faksa has goal and assist, Stars beat Blues 2-1 in Game 1 (Yahoo Sports)|
Walton went 39-4 as the Golden State Warriors' interim head coach to start the season and was considered one of the top candidates on the market.
The kid is all right for the Dallas Stars. Radek Faksa, the rookie center who split his season between the AHL and the NHL, scored the winning goal off a rebound with 4:44 to play and had an assist on the Stars' other goal in a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference second-round series. ''He brings enthusiasm, a big smile on his face, the willingness to do whatever it takes to win right now,'' coach Lindy Ruff said about the 22-year-old Faksa.

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.
