- Tesla to Stop Selling Electric Cars in New Jersey
Tesla Motors Inc. will stop selling its luxury electric cars in New Jersey on April 1, after the state said Tuesday it wouldn't license the company to sell vehicles directly to consumers, bypassing franchised dealers. The defeat for Tesla, which owns its own stores, came despite a furious 11th-hour lobbying effort. A senior Tesla executive had accused New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie of breaking a deal to hold off on a rule change requiring all car retailers in the state to have a franchise agreement with an auto maker. The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission approved the rule change Tuesday.
- Dog in viral 'kegstand' photo going home to NY college student
By Caurie Putnam BROCKPORT, New York (Reuters) - Mya, the puppy whose photo showing her held upside down above a keg and drinking beer resulted in animal cruelty charges against two college students, was headed back to the off-campus home of her owner on Tuesday. A photo of the 4-month-old black Labrador doing a "kegstand" at the home of students at College at Brockport, part of State University of New York, went viral over the weekend after it was posted on a Twitter account called the SUNY Party Stories page. Two of the roommates, Shane Oliver and Robert Yates, both 20, were charged with misdemeanor torturing or injuring an animal at the multi-unit rental home across from campus. "The dog is in excellent health and going home to the owner," Dog Control Officer Kathy Beaumont said on Tuesday.

- SHOCK: Miley Cyrus Performed in Her Unmentionables
Today in celebrity gossip: Miley Cyrus went chaps-less during a recent performance, Elisabeth Moss did not enjoy her "awful" marriage to Fred Armisen, and Chris Evans is both ready and willing to marry you. This was a brave admission for what must have been a truly mortifying situation! But please do not jump to conclusions about Miley Cyrus' lack of inhibitions, because as Us Weekly charitably described it, "the 21-year-old singer decided to take the stage half-naked rather than disappoint her fans." See? Miley Cyrus did not want to disappoint her fans and THAT is why she opted to forego her usual modesty-preserving sequined Ace bandage wrapped around a child's melted Halloween costume and instead took the stage in a state of undress that could be described as "revealing". We've all been there and we will all be there again and again and again and quite frankly we all owe Miley Cyrus a debt of gratitude for her bravery in this situation.

- Someone Stole $600,000 in Donations From Joel Osteen's Megachurch
Lakewood Church — the giant Houston headquarters of celebrity pastor Joel Osteen's evangelical empire — alerted its congregants that as much as $600,000 in cash and checks were taken from the building over the weekend. Even more concerning: The stolen goods include envelopes on which congregants wrote down their credit card information. According to an email from Lakewood, the theft "is limited only to those funds contributed in the church services on Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9, 2014," and does not include donations made electronically. A church employee discovered the theft on Monday morning. Pastors Joel and Victoria Osteen are well-known proponents of a modern version of the prosperity gospel — a theology that believes God blesses people with material success.
- Freescale loss in Malaysia tragedy leads to travel policy questions
By Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The loss of 20 key Freescale Semiconductor employees in the disappearance of a Malaysian airliner on Saturday raises questions about whether the company should have allowed so many of them to board the same plane, but security experts said that at big corporations it's hard to avoid. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines' Flight MH370 about an hour into its journey to Beijing remained a mystery on Monday as a search orchestrated by 10 countries failed to find traces of the plane or the 239 people on board. It was a blow to Austin, Texas-based Freescale. The vanished employees were engineers or specialists involved in projects to streamline and cut costs at key manufacturing facilities in China and Malaysia.
