President Barack Obama plans to sign an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against employees on the basis of their sexual orientation.

An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
Questions swirled Wednesday over a video reportedly taken by someone inside the cabin of the doomed Germanwings plane shortly before it crashed -- a video that reporters for two publications say was found on a memory chip that could have come from a passenger's cellphone. Marseille Prosecutor Brice Robin, who is overseeing the French criminal investigation into the crash, told The Associated Press that investigators had found no such video.
Singer Joni Mitchell was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday afternoon (Mar. 31, 2015) after paramedics were called to her home. TMZ reports that the 71-year-old was found unconscious at around 2:30 p.m., but was awake on her way to the hospital.

She is currently in intensive care undergoing tests and is awake and in good spirits. More updates to come as we hear them. Light a candle and sing a song, let’s all send good wishes her way."
As the world’s oldest and arguably most prestigious annual marathon, The Boston Marathon is widely regarded as the pinnacle event within the sport of running. The longevity and traditions surely contribute to Boston’s reputation, but it’s the method of entry that gives the race its luster within the road racing community. The Boston Marathon is the only marathon in the United States that requires qualifying times, leading runners across the world to chase a “BQ.” For those lucky enough to gain entry, race preparation begins months before ever setting foot in the starting corral.
