KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Most of the people in Nepal's capital have moved back indoors after sleeping outside since Saturday's magnitude 7.8 earthquake for fear of aftershocks. Gas stations are open again in Kathmandu and a bakery in the suburbs is selling fresh bread and croissants. One farmer rode his bicycle into the city with fresh vegetables. He says he and his fellow farmers are trying to get as much fresh food to people as possible.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore's police commissioner says the city's curfew will remain in effect through the weekend. It seems to again have kept the streets calm. After a peaceful protest calling for justice in the death of Freddie Gray, the streets were mostly cleared shortly after the curfew went into effect at 10 p.m. One man was placed into handcuffs after walking up to the police line and yelling at the officers for several minutes.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans have pushed legislation through the House that would revoke a District of Columbia law that bars discrimination in the city against workers who have abortions. House passage was largely symbolic because the law takes effect Saturday unless Congress first approves legislation blocking and President Barack Obama signs it. The Senate is unlikely to consider the measure by then, and for good measure the White House has threatened a veto should it ever reach the president's desk.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — SeaWorld San Diego has been cited for allegedly failing to train workers to safely interact with its killer whales. U-T San Diego reports that the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health issued four citations this week that carry nearly $26,000 in fines. The citations say the park hasn't kept employees aware of hazards involving the orcas and employees ride and swim with the whales in the park's medical pool. SeaWorld says the citations show a "fundamental misunderstanding" of what's needed to safely care for orcas.

CHICAGO (AP) — Two Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks are the first two picks in this year's NFL draft. As expected, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers used the first overall pick to select Jameis (JAY'-mihs) Winston, the Florida State quarterback and 2013 Heisman winner. Tennessee then took Marcus Mariota (mar-ee-OH'-tah) of Oregon with the second selection. Mariota was last season's Heisman winner.
