American fighter jets and drones continued to pound Islamic State militants in Iraq on Wednesday, and military planners weighed the possibility of sending a small number of additional U.S. troops to Baghdad, U.S. officials said, even as the insurgents threatened to kill a second American captive in retribution for any continued attacks. The airstrikes came in the hours after militants released a gruesome video Tuesday showing U.S. journalist James Foley being beheaded and underscored President Barack Obama's vow Wednesday afternoon to continue attacks against the group despite its threats.
As evidenced by this photo -- and, you know, life in general -- Selena Gomez is absolutely gorgeous ... and she's apparently happy with herself these days, too, because in posting the photo, she captioned it, "I love being happy with me, yall ," hashtagging it #theresmoretolove. We don't really know if there's more to love or not -- that's some information to whom Selena's primarily privy -- but in either case (in any case, to be honest), it's so good to see Selena enjoying herself and being healthy inside and out. There just might be hope for a Disney star after all, huh?
How much longer will fans have to wait to find out whether or not Constantine has a second season? At least nine days. A source close to the negotiations has told ComicBook.com that producers will meet with NBC to pitch the second season on April 27, at which point the network will go into deliberations and come to a decision, likely sometime in May. The series has a small but passionate fan base who have held out hope for a second season in spite of a number of bad signs, including a recent (later redacted) report that NBC had already elected not to bring Constantine back in the fall.

The Kings said in a statement, "We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll. Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."
Luna and his friends "were bored" so they decided to kill somebody. Chancey Allen Luna was found guilty of first-degree murder Friday for his role in the August 2013 drive-by shooting of Christopher Lane, a 23-year-old college student in Duncan, about 80 miles south of Oklahoma City. Luna was 16 at the time of the shooting. Lane, an Australian attending East Central University, was jogging when he was shot in the back by a gun fired by Luna. jury recommended Friday that Luna spend life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to court records. Because he was under 18 when the crime was committed, he is not eligible for the death penalty. He'll be formally sentenced in June.
While most of the Senate spent the week wrestling with a human trafficking bill and arguing over the confirmation of a new attorney general, the Senate education committee was collegially zipping through its rewrite of No Child Left Behind. The bill includes toxic education topics like testing and school performance ratings. It’s been notoriously difficult to tackle: The last three Congresses have tried and failed to rewrite it. But Sens. Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray, one the son of a teacher and the other a former teacher, have quickly forged a formidable working relationship in the new Congress that is lifting the spirits of even the most discouraged observers. The HELP Committee unanimously passed its rewrite of the education bill on Thursday afternoon, with the polarizing Sens. Rand Paul, Tim Scott, Al Franken and Elizabeth Warren all lined up behind the committee chairs.
