March Madness: Winners and losers from the NCAA tournament's first weekend before Sweet 16

Headlines
The NCAA tournament's first weekend saved the best for last when top overall seed Duke was pushed to the brink Sunday by a UCF team that seemed destined to pull off one of the biggest upsets of all-time.The thrilling last two minutes of the game provided moments that define March Madness and in many ways made up for an otherwise mediocre first three days. But there's no shortage of storylines coming out of the first weekend. Here's a look at the biggest winners and losers from four non-stop days of madness — encompassing 48 games altogether: Duke. The whole "survive and advance" mantra of the NCAAs couldn't be truer for this heavily favored Blue Devils team that escaped a monumental upset to No. 9 seed Central Florida. It was Williamson's bulldozing basket against 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall and R.J. Barrett's put-back — both plays made in the final 14 seconds — that saved Duke's national title pursuit in the 77-76 thriller. Ultimately, this is a win for fans, too, considering Duke's appeal as a must-watch spectacle unlike any team we've seen in years. ...

Trump claims 'complete and total exoneration'

Headlines
(CNN)A triumphant President Donald Trump emerged Sunday to claim "complete and total exoneration" after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation found no evidence Trump or his campaign associates conspired with Russia to win the presidential election.The report itself was more circumspect: in a letter to Congress, Attorney General William Barr said Mueller did not have enough evidence to prosecute Trump on obstruction charges, but did not exonerate him.But the absence of clear evidence of wrongdoing was enough for Trump to boast of vindication after the nearly two-year cloud of the probe has lifted. His remarks foreshadow what advisers say will be an unsparing effort to cast the entire Mueller probe as a pointless and expensive folly....

March Madness: No. 1 Duke barely holds off Central Florida at buzzer in classic game

Headlines
COLUMBIA, S.C. — There was always a danger of this for Duke, even as the No. 1 team in college basketball won all but one game this season when fully healthy. Imperfectly constructed, crazy reliant on youth, often prone to tossing bricks at the rim, the margin between history and infamy was set up to be a small one. This time, in a second-round howitzer of a basketball game, it was just enough. Duke escaped the NCAA tournament’s second round, 77-76, holding on to beat No. 9 seed UCF when the Knights’ B.J. Taylor and Aubrey Dawkins barely missed shots close to the rim as time expired. That sequence followed a frantic Duke comeback from down four with 2:09 remaining, and with the Blue Devils completely discombobulated on offense, it appeared UCF was about to land a knockout punch at any moment. ...

Mueller report mystifies, but not because it cannot be true

Headlines
The finding that Donald Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign didn't conspire with the Russian government is somewhat mystifying.Not because it cannot be accepted as true. Special counsel Robert Mueller's reputation for excellence, diligence and thoroughness underscores how the finding is credible and ought to be welcomed.No, it mystifies because Trump could have sat quietly waiting for the truth to emerge. The president's underlings could have honestly answered questions by the FBI and lawmakers. But this didn't happen.The president spent nearly two years trashing an inquiry that ultimately cleared him and his campaign of criminally conspiring with Russia, and several former aides are now convicted felons for lying under oath — apparently about something that didn't warrant concealment. Some evidently lied out of a misbegotten, twisted sense of loyalty that only made matters worse. ...

For months, Robert Mueller's team had requested a sit-down interview with Trump, but the President's lawyers refused to commit and negotiations continued. Eventually, the special counsel submitted written questions to the President last fall concerning the time frame before the 2016 election, which Trump answered in late November 2018.The source said the sensitive discussions between Justice Department officials and the special counsel team, and the determination that a subpoena would not be pursued, were based on the perception of the evidence and merits of the issues -- separate and apart from the fact that current department policy dictates that a sitting president cannot be indicted. ...

Mueller report: Conclusions of investigation into Russia, Trump campaign to be delivered Sunday to Congress

Headlines
WASHINGTON – Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation did not find evidence that President Donald Trump or members of his campaign conspired with Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 election, delivering a boost to the president in a case that has shadowed his administration since its first days.But the special counsel's report leaves "unresolved whether the president's actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction," Attorney General William Barr said in a letter to Congress delivered Sunday. "While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him" on whether he obstructed justice, Mueller said in the report, according to Barr's four-page summary. ...

In defense of cable, and the joy of scrolling up and down a remote

Headlines
 MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — For years, the cable companies have been attacked, maligned and abused as the money-grubbing gougers of our living rooms. Now, with Apple set to preview yet another entertainment streaming service Monday, get ready for some possible backlash to streamers. We hate cable because rates keep going up, and they give us hundreds of channels we don’t want. Many of us would prefer to order channels a la carte, and they won’t let us. So why continue paying the man when you could cut the cord and enjoy TV for free? Here’s one good reason: because cable just works. One could argue, (and I certainly have,) that the experience of the cable alternative services like YouTube and Hulu with Live TV is visually better, with more options for how to watch. ...

Headlines
Investigations into the causes of the two Boeing 737 Max crashes, in Indonesia and Ethiopia, have focused on software — and the possibility that it was autonomously pointing the planes' noses downward, acting without the pilots' consent.It's a nightmare scenario.

It turned out that software inside the cars had been quietly running the engines in such a way as to cheat on emissions tests.While it's always possible for manufacturers to use software dishonestly, the more common problem is software that's used to enable sloppy designs....
