A flurry of aftershocks hit southwestern Japan on Saturday as rescuers scrambled to reach trapped survivors of two big quakes that killed at least 35 people. About 190 suffered serious injuries, according to the government.

Evacuation orders were issued for areas vulnerable to landslides amid powerful thunderstorms in the area, the government’s main spokesman Yoshihide Suga said in an evening press briefing.

“There are still sporadic aftershocks from this morning’s earthquake, and so there is still a need to be vigilant,” Suga warned.

It’s Jackie Robinson Day, but Baseball Still Has a Problem With Black People

On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson made his debut in Major League Baseball, becoming the first black player to cross the game’s deeply entrenched color line. But nearly seven decades after Robinson made history, there’s at least one position in America’s favorite past time that’s struggling to integrate: pitching.

Out of 449 pitchers on major league rosters this year on opening day, only 14 are black. 

“The cruel reality is that the African-American baseball player — whether prodded to abandon pitching or by their own volition — is being excluded from more than half the jobs in the industry.”  — John Nightengale

Pitching is arguably the game’s most important position, but black players are less represented there than they are at other positions on the field. The game does boast some high-profile black pitchers, including C.C. Sabathia of the New York Yankees and Marcus Stroman of the Toronto Blue Jays.

The questions have come up before: Why isn’t there a White History Month? Why isn’t there a network for White Entertainment Television, like BET? Black Girls Rock? What about White Girls Rock? What about the critically acclaimed Broadway play Hamilton‘s call for nonwhite actors?

Clearly, these few examples demonstrate “reverse racism,” or the discrimination against members of a dominant racial group. Right?

Not quite.

Kobe Bryant Says Goodbye To The NBA In Most Kobe Way Possible

Kobe Bryant said goodbye to the NBA on Wednesday night in really the only way he could have: By launching more shots than any other player since at least the 1983-1984 season, including a late jumper to take the lead. 

Bryant took 50 shots in all during his final game as a member of the Lakers, connecting on 22 of them on the way to 60 points, the most by any NBA player in his final game, and even more than former teammate Shaquille O’Neal requested.

The Lakers came from behind to beat the Utah Jazz 101-96, but that was almost a footnote in a game that was more a celebration of Bryant’s two decades in the league than anything else. The game plan was pretty simple.

US Navy, Coast Guard Rescue Sailors Who Wrote “Help” on Beach of Desert Island

It looked like an episode of Gilligan’s Island, but it was a real-life plea for help.

On Thursday, the United States Navy and Coast Guard rescued three shipwrecked mariners from a desert island after they wrote the word “help” on the beach using palm fronds, the Washington Post reported.

The men’s 19-foot skiff overturned on Monday night, leaving them to swim over two miles to the shores of “the tiny Pacific Island of Fanadik, several hundred miles north of Papua New Guinea,” according to the Post. They remained there until Thursday morning, when a Navy plane noticed the letters on the beach.

Eight-year-old Heidi VanSumeren lost all her reading materials last month when a fire destroyed her family’s home in Parma, Michigan.

According to her mom, Beth VanSumeren, the second-grader was devastated by the loss.

“Books are really special for her,” Beth told “Good Morning America.” “We can talk to her and try to explain but when she can read it on her own whenever she’s sad and needs help, that’s always been an easier way for her to understand things.”

Now, thanks to numerous authors, illustrators and librarians across the country, Heidi’s book collection has been restocked — and then some.
