That sent Tkachuk racing toward center ice to celebrate with teammates in what turned into the longest game in either franchises’ history, as well as the sixth-longest game in NHL...

AMY BETH HANSON, HALELUYA HADERO and MATTHEW BROWN (Associated Press) HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Five TikTok content creators have filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn Montana’s first-in-the-nation ban on the video sharing app, arguing the law is an unconstitutional violation of free speech rights.

More than 30 million US drivers don’t know if they’re at risk from a rare but dangerous airbag blast

By TOM KRISHER (AP Auto Writer) DETROIT (AP) — More than 33 million people in the United States are driving vehicles that contain a potentially deadly threat: Airbag inflators that in rare cases can explode in a collision and spew shrapnel. Few of them know it. And because of a dispute between federal safety regulators and an airbag parts manufacturer, they aren’t likely to find out anytime soon. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is demanding that the manufacturer, ARC Automotive of Knoxville, Tennessee, recall 67 million inflators that could explode with such force as to blow...

Powerful Job Market Fuels Homebuyer Demand

The spring housing market has been surprisingly active this year. Even with affordability challenges and a limited number of homes for sale, buyer demand is strong, and getting stronger.One way we know there are interested buyers right now is because showing traffic is up. Data from the latest ShowingTime Showing Index, which is a measure of buyers actively touring homes, makes it clear more people are out looking at homes than there were prior to the pandemic (see graph below):And though there’s less traffic than the buyer frenzy of the past couple of years, we’re not far off that pace. There...

Winderman’s view: Heat stare down big challenge in series opener, solve Celtics

BOSTON – Observations and other notes of interest from Wednesday night’s 123-116 NBA playoff victory over the Boston Celtics: – A big problem? – It certainly looked that way at the outset, when Robert Williams was dominating inside early for the Celtics. – It looked that way when Heat backup center Cody Zeller struggled in his opening stint (and later his ensuing stint). – It looked that way when the Heat tried to play Max Strus on Al Horford, as they did during the regular season. – And it looked that way when Kevin Love was taken off the floor when the Celtics went small. – But to their credit,...

Montana says 1st-in-nation TikTok ban protects people. TikTok says it violates their rights

By AMY BETH HANSON and HALELUYA HADERO (Associated Press) HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana became the first state in the U.S. to enact a complete ban on TikTok on Wednesday when Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a measure that’s more sweeping than any other state’s attempts to curtail the social media app, which is owned by a Chinese tech company. The measure, scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2024, is expected to be challenged legally and will serve as a testing ground for the TikTok-free America that many national lawmakers have envisioned. Cybersecurity experts say it could be difficult...

The information it contains on home prices may cause some confusion and could even generate some troubling headlines.

The vast majority of the repeat sales indices show prices are starting to appreciate again. But the median price reported on Thursday may tell a different story. Here’s why using the median home price as a gauge of what’s happening with home values...

By HANNAH SCHOENBAUM, GARY D. ROBERTSON and DENISE LAVOIE (Associated Press) RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Legislation banning most abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy will become law in North Carolina after the state’s Republican-controlled General Assembly successfully overrode the Democratic governor’s veto late Tuesday. The House completed the second and final part of the override vote after a similar three-fifths majority — the fraction necessary — voted for the override earlier Tuesday in the Senate.
