African marathoners top at Boston two years after bombing

Rotich of Kenya crosses the finish line to win the women's division of the 119th Boston Marathon in BostonBy Scott Malone and Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - Ethiopian runner Lelisa Desisa finished first in the Boston Marathon on Monday, reclaiming the top spot in a race he last won two years ago when it was struck by a deadly bombing attack. Caroline Rotich of Kenya led the women's field, affirming African athletes' dominance at the race. "Strong Boston!" Desisa shouted after he crossed the finish line, in a version of the "Boston Strong" motto that became the city's rallying cry after the April 15, 2013, attack that killed three and injured 264. Security was high near the start line in Hopkinton, along the 26.2 mile (42.16 km) course and around the finish line in Boston, in recognition of the bombing, one of the most visible attacks on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001.

Texas ice cream maker recalls all products over Listeria
By Marice Richter DALLAS (Reuters) - Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries announced on Monday a voluntary recall of all its ice cream and frozen treat products from store shelves due to continuing problems with the Listeria bacteria. The move is the most recent in a string of recall announcements by the 108-year-old company, based in Brenham, after health officials said last month three people made ill by Listeria between January 2014 and January 2015 had died in a Kansas hospital where Blue Bell frozen treats were served. Monday's decision came after the bacteria was detected in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream samples that were tested last month. "We are heartbroken about this situation and apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers," Blue Bell CEO Paul Kruse said.
Struggling to remember the name of Jeb Bush's super PAC? Here's why

Former Florida Governor and probable 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush speaks at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Conference in NashuaBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - It's hard to remember whether Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush's super PAC is called America Rising or Right to Rise. The Bush super PAC is in fact Right to Rise. America Rising is another political action committee, unconnected to Bush, that plans to raise and spend unlimited sums of money, although it does share one goal in common with Right to Rise: to defeat Hillary Clinton's bid for the Democratic nomination in 2016. They also share some thematic similarity with the group supporting another Republican presidential hopeful, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (Our American Revival), which isn't too different from groups advocating for potential candidates New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (America Leads) and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (Pursuing America's Greatness).
