Justice Department Withdraws Lawsuit Over HB2 Bathroom Bill – NBC News


The U.S. Department of Justice will no longer battle with the state of North Carolina over its policies regarding transgender residents.

On Friday morning, the Justice Department and attorneys for North Carolina filed a joint notice of dismissal at the U.S. District Court in North Carolina, stating in the document they were withdrawing both cases “in light of the passage” of House Bill 142, the bill that replaced the controversial House Bill 2 (better known as HB2).

More Sea Lions in LA, Orange Counties Showing Signs of Poisoning From Algae Bloom | NBC Southern California


Marine mammal rescue centers in Orange and Los Angeles counties are reporting increasing instances of sea lions showing signs of domoic acid poisoning, caused by a neurological toxin resulting from an ocean algae bloom, it was reported Monday.

The symptoms include lethargy and unawareness, according to the Orange County Register, which attributed its report of increased poisonings to an official at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Officials told the Register that the sea lions’ plight could signal that the marine environment remains out of balance. A lack of food sources available to lactating mothers close to Channel Islands sea lion breeding grounds led to mass strandings starting in 2013.

Keith Matassa, executive director of the Pacific Marine Mammal Center of Laguna Beach, said the health of the sea lions

Woman gives birth to 13-pound baby – CBS News


Oh, baby!

That was most likely the reaction of Natashia Corrigan, a mother in Melbourne, Australia, after giving birth to a 13-pound, 4-ounce baby boy back in January.

“It’s hard to get our minds around such a whirlwind of a day,” Corrigan wrote in a Facebook post that is now going viral. “I never dreamed we’d get so much love for our BIG baby boy and family.”

Brian Liddle Jr. was born on Jan. 24 at Mercy Hospital in Heidelberg, Victoria, during the 40th week of Corrigan’s pregnancy. He’s her third child. She also has two daughters, who weighed in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces and 7 pounds, 12 ounces — nearly half the size of their older brother

Historic Alfred Street Baptist Church pastor uses Bible and Jay Z to reach all generations – CBS News


As Holy Week nears an end, many believers are looking forward to the holiest day on the Christian calendar this Easter Sunday. More than 70 percent of Americans identify as Christian, but less than a third practice regularly.

However, Alfred Street Baptist Church, a 214-year-old church in Alexandria, Virginia, is defying those odds, as the size of its congregation has nearly tripled since 2008.

At 6 o’clock on a Saturday night, the church is packed. It is one of four services that the Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley officiates every weekend. He said attendance is strong because his 214-year-old church understands its calling.

“We are called to be traditional Baptists, with a high liturgy, where those who want to come and receive an intellectual and spirited worship service can do so in a timely manner,” Wesley said.

In eight years, Wesley said the congregation has grown from around 2,500 to now over 7,000.

Breaking News U.S. bombs Afghanistan, dropping “mother of all bombs” for first time

The bomb is officially called a GBU-43 or Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB), the origin of its nickname as the “mother of all bombs.” Weighing more than 21,000 lbs., the weapon is the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat.
