U.S. Economic Growth Slows to 1.8% Rate in First Quarter

The American economy slowed to a crawl in the first quarter,
but economists are hopeful that the setback will be
temporary.

Total output grew at an annual pace of 1.8 percent last
quarter, the Commerce Department said Thursday, after having
expanded at an annualized rate of 3.1 percent at the end of
2010. Most economists had forecast growth of 2 percent in the
first quarter.

The slowdown was largely the result of a widening trade
deficit, a larger decrease in federal government spending and
higher commodity prices, which reduced the amount of pocket
money that households and businesses had available to spend.

Tornadoes Ravage South; Death Toll at 173

The death toll in five Southern states rose sharply Thursday
morning to 173 after devastating storms ripped through five
Southern states, spawning a deadly tornado in downtown
Tuscaloosa, Ala., and leaving a trail of flattened homes and
buildings in a region already battered by storms.

Across Alabama, at least 128 people were killed by storms on
Wednesday alone, according to Reuters. The Associated Press
reported an additional 32 deaths in Mississippi, 11 in
Georgia and 1 each in Tennessee and Virginia.

At Least 54 Dead in Storms Across South

A deadly tornado stretching a mile wide tore through downtown
Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Wednesday evening, destroying homes and
buildings and bringing further damage to a region already
battered by storms.

Across the state, at least 25 people were killed by storms on
Wednesday alone, said Valerie Hayes, a spokeswoman for the
Alabama Emergency Management Agency. But that number did not
include any deaths from Tuscaloosa, where 15 people were
confirmed dead by the mayor's office and 100 were said to be
injured, The Tuscaloosa News reported. Earlier in the day,
with the damage spreading and the death toll rising, Gov.
Robert Bentley declared a state of emergency. And The
Associated Press reported that across the South, storms
Wednesday killed 11 people in Mississippi, two in Georgia and
one in Tennessee.

President Obama posted a copy of his "long form" birth
certificate, hoping to finally end a long-simmering
conspiracy theory among some conservatives that he was not
born in the United States and was not a legitimate president.

The birth certificate, which is posted online at the White
House website, shows conclusively that Mr. Obama was born in
Honolulu, Hawaii, and is signed by state officials and his
mother.

Judge Grants Injunction to End N.F.L. Lockout Pending Appeal

A federal judge gave professional football players a
significant victory Monday, granting an injunction to stop
the N.F.L.'s six-week lockout Monday. Judge Susan Richard
Nelson of United States District Court did not stay her
decision, sending the N.F.L scrambling to seek a stay from
the Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit to prevent the
league from having to open for business immediately.

If the stay is not granted, the N.F.L. will have to put rules
in place allowing players to return to work and free agency
to open within days, creating a flurry of activity similar to
the normal operations of an off-season. Teams will be allowed
to hold workouts with players, players will be permitted to
meet with trainers to rehabilitate injuries and coaches to
study game film.

Classified Military Files Offer New Insights About Guantánamo Detainees

A trove of more than 700 classified military documents
provides new and detailed accounts of the men who have done
time at the Guantánamo Bay prison in Cuba, and offers new
insight into the evidence against the 172 men still locked up
there. Military intelligence officials, in assessments of
detainees written between February 2002 and January 2009,
evaluated their histories and provided glimpses of the
tensions between captors and captives. What began as a
jury-rigged experiment after the 2001 terrorist attacks now
seems like an enduring American institution, and the leaked
files show why, by laying bare the patchwork and
contradictory evidence that in many cases would never have
stood up in criminal court or a military tribunal.

New York Times/CBS News Poll Finds Deep Pessimism About American Economy

Americans are more pessimistic about the nation's economic
outlook and overall direction than they have been at any time
since President Obama's first two months in office, when the
country was still officially ensnared in the Great Recession,
according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

At a time of rising gas prices, stubborn unemployment and a
cacophonous debate in Washington over the federal
government's ability to meet its future obligations, the poll
presents stark evidence that the slow, if unsteady, gains in
public confidence earlier this year that a recovery was under
way are now all but gone.

New York Times/CBS News Poll Finds Few Favorites as Republican Fight for President Gels

With less than a year to go before the Iowa caucuses,
Republican voters have yet to form strong opinions about most
of their potential candidates for president in 2012,
according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Only those possible contenders who regularly appear on
television -- or have made bids before -- are well known
enough to elicit significant views from their fellow
Republicans. And of that group, only one, former Gov. Mike
Huckabee of Arkansas, is viewed favorably by more than half
of the Republican electorate.

The poll would seem to reflect the late start to the
Republican primary season, with many of the major likely
candidates seeking to hoard their money and avoid making any
missteps that they might have to live with later, when voters
go to polls or caucus rooms.

Major League Baseball Takes Over Operation of Los Angeles Dodgers

Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said Monday that he would

Dodgers because of his "deep concerns" about the state of the
marquee franchise.

But two people with knowledge of the situation said that he
is also strongly considering forcing the sale of the team by
invoking his "bests interests of baseball" powers to wrest
the team from Frank McCourt, the owner since 2004, who he
believes has mismanaged the franchise while enriching
himself.

Selig said in a statement that he informed McCourt of his
decision, which he said was made to "protect the best
interests of the club, its great fans and all of Major League
Baseball."

Military forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, who have

anti-Qaddafi rebellion, have been firing into residential
neighborhoods with heavy weapons, including cluster bombs
that have been banned by much of the world and
ground-to-ground rockets, according to the accounts of
witnesses and survivors and physical evidence on the ground.

Such weapons, which strike large areas with a dense
succession of high-explosive munitions, by their nature
cannot be fired precisely, and when fired into populated
areas place civilians at grave risk.

House Passes Compromise Budget Bill

The House passed legislation on Thursday to finance the
federal government for the rest of the fiscal year, the final
House vote in a budget showdown that had threatened to close
down the federal government until an eleventh-hour compromise
was struck late last week.

The vote was 260 to 167, with 59 members of the House
Republican majority and more than half the chamber's
Democratic minority voting against the legislation.

Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio had predicted that the
measure would pass with significant support from both
parties, despite opposition from conservative members of his
own caucus, who said the spending cuts were insufficient, and
from liberal Democrats who called them excessive.

Obama's Debt Plan Pairs Cuts With Higher Taxes on Rich

In a speech on Wednesday, President Obama called for cutting
the nation's budget deficits by $4 trillion over the next 12
years, countering Republican budget plans with what he said
was a more balanced approach that relies in part on tax
increases for the wealthy as well as on spending cuts.

In a speech that serves as the administration's opening bid
for negotiations over the nation's fiscal future, Mr. Obama
conceded a need to cut spending, rein in the growth of
entitlement programs and close tax loopholes, officials said
shortly before he spoke.

But he also insisted that the government must maintain what
he called investment in programs that are necessary to
compete globally. And he made clear that, despite his
compromise with Congressional leaders in December, Mr. Obama
would fight Republicans to end lowered tax rates for wealthy
Americans that have been in place since President George W.
Bush championed them in the last decade.

Sidney Lumet, Director of American Film Classics, Dies at 86

Sidney Lumet, a director who preferred the streets of New
York to the back lots of Hollywood and whose stories of
conscience -- "12 Angry Men," "Serpico," "Dog Day Afternoon,"
"The Verdict," "Network" -- became modern American film
classics, died Saturday morning at his home in Manhattan. He
was 86.

His stepdaughter, Leslie Gimbel, said the cause was lymphoma.

"While the goal of all movies is to entertain," Mr. Lumet
once wrote, "the kind of film in which I believe goes one
step further. It compels the spectator to examine one facet
or another of his own conscience. It stimulates thought and
sets the mental juices flowing."

Social issues set his own mental juices flowing, and his best
films not only probed the consequences of prejudice,
corruption and betrayal but also celebrated individual acts
of courage.

Obama Meeting Fails to End Stalemate Over Federal Budget

President Obama met at the White House on Wednesday night
with House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senator Harry Reid of
Nevada, the majority leader, but they failed to reach an
agreement to end a budget stalemate that has threatened to
shut down the government.

After the meeting ended, Mr. Obama warned that a shutdown
must be avoided. "A shutdown will have real effects on
everyday lives," he said at a White House press conference.

The nighttime meeting, called Wednesday afternoon by Mr.
Obama, underscored the drama in the nation's capital as the
White House and Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill spent
the day pointing fingers at each other in advance of a
possible government shutdown on Saturday. The government's
authority to spend money runs out at midnight on Friday
night.

Texas A&M Tops Irish for First N.C.A.A. Basketball Title

Texas A&M defeated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 76-70,
winning its first championship in school history.

It was far from an easy road to the title; the Aggies had to
go through No. 1 seeds Baylor and Stanford just to get to the
title game. But led by senior Danielle Adams, the Aggies were
able to overpower Notre Dame, despite blowing a 13-point
first-half lead.

Adams finished with a game-high 30 points and added nine
rebounds, capping a season that included All-American honors.

Connecticut's Epic Run Ends With N.C.A.A. Championship

After losing four of their last five regular season games,
the Connecticut Huskies rallied to win their next 11 games,
ending with a 53-41 victory over the Butler Bulldogs to win
their third national championship.

The Huskies and their star guard Kemba Walker took advantage
of some poor shooting by Butler in the second half, turning a
3-point halftime deficit into a commanding double-digit lead.
Walker had a team-high 16 points, and forwards Jeremy Lamb
and Alex Oriakhi chipped in with 12 and 11 points,
respectively.

It is the Huskies' first national championship since 2004.

Boeing Recommends All Airlines Check Older 737 Planes for Fatigue Cracks

Boeing said on Monday that it was issuing a bulletin to
airlines that fly some older models of its 737 jet, calling
for special inspections of the lap joints in the fuselages of
the planes. The action follows an incident where a hole blew
open in the fuselage of a Southwest Airlines 737-300 while in
flight, causing an emergency landing but no injuries, and the
discovery of cracks in two more of the airline's 737 jets.
Boeing said that data from the airline and from the National
Transportation Safety Board prompted the inspection bulletin.
The 737, sold in various models since the 1960s, is the most
popular and widely used jetliner in the world.

News Alert: In Reversal, 9/11 Plotter to Be Tried by Military Panel

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed to Be Tried by Military Commission at Guantánamo, in Reversal

In a major reversal, the Obama administration has decided to
try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed for his role in the attacks of
Sept. 11 before a military commission at Guantánamo Bay,
Cuba, and not in a civilian courtroom.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is expected to announce
on Monday afternoon that Mr. Mohammed, the self-described
mastermind of the attacks, and four other accused
conspirators will face charges before a panel of military
officers, a law enforcement official said. The Justice
Department has scheduled a press conference for 2 p.m.
Eastern time.

Mr. Holder, who had wanted to prosecute Mr. Mohammed before a
regular civilian court in New York City, changed his mind
after Congress imposed a series of restrictions barring the
transfer of Guantánamo detainees into the United States,
making such a trial impossible for now, the official said.
