(AP) – Kansas maintained its grip on the No. 1 ranking in The Associated Press men’s college basketball poll, while fourth-ranked Florida State has its highest ranking in nearly five decades.

Getting the most from your high school students’ college visits

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A great way to know whether or not a college feels right than packing up the minivan or booking a flight and visiting campuses. College counselor, Angelica Colon, and CEO, Dr. Cheryl Ward, from e3 Civic High stopped by Good Morning San Diego to discuss how to choose the schools to visit and how to get the most out of your child’s college tour. Tips for a successful college tour: – Cluster schools together. The more schools you see, the broader your perspective. – Attend both the info session with an admissions staff person and a tour with a student – If possible, attend when school is in session. See what the student body is like. – Forget about getting “brownie points” for visiting schools. This is largely a myth. Go to the schools you most want to see and add one more within a 20-mile radius   Categories: Good Morning San Diego, In Studio Guests

EasyJet plane forced to turn back twice because of drunk passengers

An easyJet flight from Manchester, UK to Alicante in Spain was forced to return to its stand twice because of rowdy behavior by passengers. Two separate groups of passengers were involved in Thursday’s incidents, according to a statement from easyJet, which linked the delay to the consumption of alcohol. “We are aware that some passengers were drinking their own alcohol onboard and prior to flight in the terminal,” the airline said. “Police met the aircraft to remove the passengers before it continued to Alicante.” Flight EZY1919 eventually landed in Spain more than 3.5 hours behind schedule. The airline said its staff are trained to act quickly to ensure the safety of flights. “Whilst such incidents are rare, we take them very seriously, and do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour on board,” said easyJet. “The safety and wellbeing of customers and crew is our highest priority.” CNN has contacted Greater Manchester Police for comment. The UK government is considering changing rules that currently allow airport passengers to drink around the clock, following a spike in incidents of drunkenness. In February, a British woman who tried to open the door…

Led Zeppelin did not steal ‘Stairway to Heaven’ riff, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rules

A federal appeals court decided Monday that the British rock band Led Zeppelin did not steal of portions of “Stairway to Heaven” from another band. The ruling, by an 11-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, stemmed from a lawsuit that accused Led Zeppelin of stealing portions of “Stairway to Heaven” from a song called “Taurus,” which was written by Randy Wolfe of the Los Angeles-based band Spirit. A jury ruled for Zeppelin, deciding the two songs were not substantially similar. A three-judge 9th Circuit panel later threw out the verdict on the grounds the trial judge gave faulty jury instructions. Led Zeppelin asked a larger panel to reconsider, and Monday’s decision reinstated the verdict. Read the full story on LATimes.com.

Full worm moon, final supermoon this winter, to be visible Monday

A supermoon heralding spring will light up the sky Monday. The true full moon occurs Monday, but it will appear full for three days from early Sunday until early Wednesday, according to NASA. Supermoons occur when the moon is within 90% of perigree, or its closest approach to Earth in orbit. The moon will appear brighter and bigger in the night sky and hopefully no clouds and inclement weather will obscure the view. March’s full moon is also known as the Full Worm Moon. Traditional and Native American names for each full moon of the year are derived by how they helped to track the seasons. In this case, the ground began to soften in March so that earthworms could appear, drawing more birds to feed, according to the Farmer’s Almanac. This moon is associated with spring for that reason. This year, the spring equinox occurs on March 19, and it’s arriving earlier than it has in more than a hundred years. This full moon also goes by other names, including the crow moon, the crust moon, the sap moon, the Lenten moon and the…

Federal prosecutor fatally shot his wife before killing himself in Placer County, authorities say

A federal prosecutor in California fatally shot his wife before killing himself Sunday in their home, authorities said. Timothy Delgado, 43, was an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California. He shot his 45-year-old wife Tamara Delgado in a murder-suicide in Granite Bay, according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office statement. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Monday it is cooperating with the investigation and referred questions to the sheriff’s office. Delgado appears to have prosecuted narcotics and firearms cases, a search of the office’s website shows. Tamara Delgado’s mother called the sheriff’s office to check on the couple, bringing deputies to their home, according to spokeswoman Angela Musallam.

Pleasant Hill man admits to producing child porn; police say he filmed himself molesting boy

OAKLAND — A Pleasant Hill man charged with molesting a young boy and filming it accepted a plea deal with federal prosecutors, court records show. Daniel Feliciano, 29, pleaded guilty to production and possession of child porn last week, according to court records. Details of his plea deal have not been made public, but the maximum sentence for the production charge is 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Typically in federal cases, both sides will agree to an open-ended plea deal where attorneys argue to a judge what the sentence should be. Feliciano is scheduled to be sentenced on May 26, according to court records. Feliciano was charged last December, after authorities determined he had molested a boy and filmed the abuse. By the investigation’s end, Feliciano had confessed to the conduct and wrote and apology letter to the boy, authorities said. Feliciano gave an interview with detectives and told them he was drunk when he recorded himself abusing the boy, according to a sworn statement by Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Stephanie Augusta. Two videos of Feliciano and the boy depicted several…

Family breaks quarantine attending father-daughter dance, prompting school closure

By Sara Bannoura | KMOV FRONTENAC, MO — The family of the St. Louis County woman who tested positive for COVID-19 broke quarantine and attended a father-daughter school dance Saturday evening at Villa Duchesne, County Executive Sam Page said. Page said the family was asked to self-quarantine on Thursday, March 5, after the young woman called the county’s health hotline and told them her symptoms. However, Page said the father took his other daughter to a father-daughter dinner dance with Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School (VDOH) at the Ritz-Carlton in Clayton on Saturday. In a letter to parents, VDOH officials said the father and daughter didn’t learn of the diagnosis until after they were already at the dance. They left the dance immediately after. Sunday afternoon, Page said the coronavirus patient has been acting responsibly and maturely but her father “did not act consistently with the health department’s instructions and instead … he decided to take his daughter to a school function.” Page said the county learned about the father-daughter dance on Sunday and officials told the man “to stay home or they will…

Uber, Lyft to offer paid sick leave to any coronavirus-infected driver

Uber and Lyft have said they will begin offering their drivers up to 14 days of paid sick leave if they come down with coronavirus, or are quarantined because of the illness. Andrew MacDonald, Uber’s senior vice president of rides and platform, said the ride-hailing leader is working to implement the paid sick leave policy for all of its drivers worldwide. MacDonald said drivers will be eligible for sick leave pay when they provide proper documentation of being diagnosed with coronavirus, placed into quarantine, asked to self isolate, or have been taken off Uber’s drivers’ app for 14 days at the direction of a public health organization. “We are supporting drivers and delivery people who are diagnosed with COVID-19 (coronavirus) or placed in quarantine by a public health authority,” MacDonald said, in a statement on Uber’s paid sick leave policy. “We believe this is the right thing to do.” Lyft spokesperson Alexandra LaManna echoed Uber’s position in a statement provided to this news organization. “We will provide funds to drivers should they be diagnosed with COVID-19, or put under individual quarantine by a public health…

Stocks slide on Wall Street over coronavirus and oil crash

By STAN CHOE NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks went into a steep slide Monday on Wall Street as a combination of coronavirus fears and a crash in oil prices spread alarm through the market, triggering the first automatic halt in trading in over two decades to let investors catch their breath. The price of oil sank nearly 20% after Russia refused to roll back production in response to falling demand and Saudi Arabia signaled it will ramp up its own output. While low oil prices can translate into cheaper gasoline, they wreak havoc on energy companies and countries that count on petroleum revenue, including the No. 1 producer, the U.S. The clash between the two giant oil producers came as Italy — the country hit hardest by the coronavirus in Europe — began enforcing a lockdown against 16 million people in the north, the heart of its manufacturing and financial industries. The turmoil is expected to push Italy into recession and weigh on the European economy. U.S. stocks edged closer to a bear market, defined as a drop of 20% from a record, while a…
