The jury weighing sex-abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky adjourned for the night late Thursday and will resume deliberations in the morning, when members will rehear testimony about what allegedly happened in the shower at the school's football training facility. More than seven hours after jurors began deliberations, they asked to rehear testimony from Mike McQueary, a former graduate assistant at the school who said he saw Sandusky abusing a boy in the shower, and from the friend he talked to that night, Dr. Jonathan Dranov.

Just over a week after he released the controversial video for " Tunnel Vision ," Justin Timberlake took to YouTube on Friday to premiere "Take Back the Night," the lead single from his upcoming album. A slinky disco-soul cut reminiscent of "Off the Wall"-era Michael Jackson, "Take Back the Night" is the first sample from "The 20/20 Experience -- 2 of 2," Timberlake's sequel to this year's "The 20/20 Experience," which Billboard recently identified as the year's biggest-selling album so far. The new disc, due out Sept.

Reporting from Denver -- This was just one of those nights. You could tell right away. With his third pitch, Hiroki Kuroda hit a batter. The catcher threw the ball back to Kuroda, who missed it. It was that kind of evening for the Dodgers, best forgotten. The Colorado Rockies thumped them, 11-3, on a blustery night that evoked memories of San Francisco's Candlestick Park. "This was a game we just chalk up and say, 'See you tomorrow,'" Dodgers Manager Joe Torre said.

The ritual began just as the soft winter sun ducked behind the mountains Sunday, casting haunting shadows on this jittery Caribbean capital. Blackened pots bubbled with suppers of rice and beans above glowing charcoal. Sheets, cardboard mats and mattresses were laid neatly on the streets; a lucky few pitched pup tents. Chunks of rubble blocked roads to protect alfresco sleepers from passing motorists. The magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti nearly two weeks ago, and dozens of aftershocks, including a 5.9 temblor at dawn last week, has turned Port-au-Prince into a city deathly afraid of the indoors.

It started with a noise, a mysterious thump in the middle of the night that sent my dogs bounding down the stairs, barking furiously. I rolled over and tried to go back to sleep, hoping it was nothing more than a raccoon-in-the-garden thing. But the barking didn't stop. And I thought I heard a door downstairs clank shut, though it might have been the pounding of my own racing heart. I was home alone and knew I should go down and check things out. I scanned my bedroom in the dark for something to arm myself with: A shoe, a book, a blow dryer?

A judge in Painesville ordered a Salvation Army worker who stole a holiday kettle containing about $250 to spend a night homeless. Nathen Smith, 28, was to spend the night anywhere but a house, said Municipal Judge Michael Cicconetti. Smith was fitted with a GPS device to track his location.

Hiroki Kuroda said his deceased friend was in his thoughts. Two days before Kuroda held the Florida Marlins to an unearned run over eight magnificent innings in the Dodgers' 7-3 victory at Sun Life Stadium, he learned from news reports out of Japan that Takuya Kimura had died of a brain hemorrhage. But as Kuroda stood in front of his locker biting his lower lip between sentences on Friday night, he said he didn't want to trivialize the death of his longtime Hiroshima Carp teammate by doing something as tacky as dedicating his first victory of the season to him. "To say that I pitched for Takuya-san and that it affected the outcome of the game would be making light of what happened," Kuroda said.

The joy of a new baby starts wearing a tad thin when the little bundle is still waking three or four times a night at 9 months of age. In fact, your infant may be toying with you. A new study shows that infants have the ability to sleep "through the night" by 3 months of age. Most textbooks, and pediatricians, will tell parents that infants should sleep through the night by 12 months of age. The new study investigated whether infants really could...
