Gay marriage is now legal in 37 US states and the capital Washington, but it cannot be officiated and is not recognized in 13 other statesGay marriage is now legal in 37 US states and the capital Washington, but it cannot be officiated and is not recognized in 13 other states. The US Supreme Court is due to rule on the status of gay marriage nationwide in late June, after hearing arguments on the issue next week. Each of the 50 US states can determine whether it recognizes a same-sex union officiated in another state, which has consequences on what subsidies and tax credits a couple can claim. A total of 37 states, the federal capital Washington and at least 10 Native American tribes legally or constitutionally authorize gay marriage.

Landon Carnie pictured on on April 11, 2015 at the site on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City where the very first Babylift flight crashed on April 4, 1975, shortly after takeoffIn the chaotic last days of the Vietnam War, the US airlifted thousands of children out of Saigon. Forty years later, many Operation Babylift survivors have returned, looking for answers from a family or country they never knew. During the controversial mass evacuation, some 3,000 children were flown out of Vietnam to be adopted by families from America to Sweden. "My (adoptive) parents received a telegram... saying they couldn't find us... we were missing and presumed dead," said Landon Carnie, who was on the C5-A Galaxy plane on April 4, 1975.

Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge wins the men's London Marathon on April 26, 2015Eliud Kipchoge led a Kenyan clean sweep of the podium places as he won the men's London Marathon on Sunday in a time of two hours, four minutes and 42 seconds. The final mile saw former world 5,000 metres champion Kipchoge sprint clear of Wilson Kipsang, last year's London winner, with world record-holder Dennis Kimetto finishing in third place. Victory saw Kipchoge add the London title to his wins in last year's Rotterdam and Chicago marathons. His winning time on Sunday was well outside Kipsang's London record of 2hrs 04 mins and 29 secs set last year but as he waved to the crowd in sight of the finish, it was clear that he was delighted by victory alone.
