SEATTLE — Baltimore Orioles left-hander John Means has not allowed a hit to the Seattle Mariners through eight innings on Wednesday. Means has faced the minimum and allowed just one runner. Sam Haggerty struck out swinging in the third inning, but reached first when the pitch in the dirt bounced away from catcher Pedro Severino. Haggerty wasn’t on base long, getting thrown out attempting to steal second. Means has struck out 11, throwing at up to 94.6 mph. He induced weak contact when the Mariners have put the ball in play. Center fielder Cedric Mullins made a sliding catch on J.P. Crawford short fly ball to end the sixth inning, the closest Seattle has come to a hit. Kyle Lewis flied out to the warning track in left field leading off the eighth inning. Means has thrown 71 of 101 pitches for strikes. He started 23 of 24 batters with strikes. The only exception was Crawford in the sixth inning. Baltimore leads 6-0. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — A lawsuit filed by a Chicago astronomer who alleged the Wisconsin-based maker of American Girl dolls stole her likeness and name to create an astronaut doll has been dismissed after the two sides resolved the case. The federal trademark lawsuit filed last year by Lucianne Walkowicz asked American Girl and its parent company, Mattel, to stop selling the Luciana Vega doll, described as “an aspiring astronaut ready to take the next giant leap to Mars." A stipulation filed late Tuesday afternoon states that the suit has been addressed to the satisfaction of both sides and without any financial considerations. It contains no details about what’s contained in the settlement, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. Walkowicz is a TED senior fellow at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. She spent much of her career with NASA and has lectured extensively on Mars exploration. She said in her suit that the similarities included the purple streak in the doll's hair and her holographic shoes. American Girl denied the allegations and said at the time it “takes great pride in creating original characters for girls.” An attorney for Walkowicz and an American Girl spokeswoman did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A U.S. Capitol Police officer travelled thousands of miles to Homer, Alaska, for an FBI raid on a woman's home, looking for something stolen during the Jan. 6 insurrection and the person who took it. “We're looking for Nancy Pelosi's laptop," the agents told Marilyn Hueper after briefly handcuffing her. Hueper shot back: “That still doesn’t explain why you’re in my home. Or in Homer, Alaska.” They would walk out with iPads, cellphones and a pocket-sized copy of the Declaration of Independence. They took a laptop, but it wasn’t from the House speaker’s office. And it’s possible they may have the wrong person — even though Hueper looks strikingly similar to the thief. The Justice Department's massive prosecution of those who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 has not been without its problems, including this potential instance of mistaken identity. And as Republicans are increasingly seeking to minimize the insurrection and play down the horror of the day, any missteps by federal prosecutors could be used in that effort to discredit what actually happened. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 400 people, the largest undertaking by the department, including scores of defendants who posted images of their crimes online and boasted about breaking into the hallowed building. Some are facing serious charges and considerable prison time. Hueper and her husband first came to officials' attention this year when Alaska Airlines in February banned the couple for refusing to wear masks on a flight, according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press. Then two other people called in tips saying they recognized Hueper in photos that authorities had released of suspects wanted for storming the Capitol. The insurrectionists sought to disrupt the certification of President Joe Biden’s victory. Hundreds of officers were injured and five people died after the riot, including a Capitol Police officer. Supporters of then-President Donald Trump ransacked offices, rifled through lawmakers' papers and desks, smashed through glass, shattered windows and tore down signs. Among the items stolen: the laptop from Pelosi's office, her lectern, an iPad belonging to Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn and other electronics. But the volume of people inside the Capitol building, along with the lack of arrests made at the time of the riot, has made it difficult to identify people, even with the glut of social media evidence. Federal agents have dug through thousands of social media posts, gotten sweeping warrants to obtain information on cellphones in the area of the Capitol, used facial recognition tools and obtained logs of devices that signed into the congressional Wi-Fi during the riot. But by far the most effective tool for federal agents has been old-fashioned tips. Many of the rioters have been ratted out by their friends and family members. The warrant, obtained by the AP, identifies Hueper as the woman who took the laptop. But they're wrong, Hueper insists. She told the AP that another woman wearing her same coat and with a similar hairstyle was inside the Capitol during the insurrection, not her. She admits she was in Washington, D.C., for Trump’s rally that day but says she didn’t get any closer than 100 yards (91 metres) from the Capitol and spent part of the day being lost in an unfamiliar city. She said agents showed her one photo of the woman inside the Capitol, and they looked so similar that Hueper wondered if someone had used photo-editing software to put her in the photograph. The warrant details how FBI agents located an image showing Hueper wearing similar clothing in a photo on her husband’s Instagram account. It said Hueper’s husband had also posted photos of them near the Capitol. “BEST OF 2020,” he wrote in one, showing her from behind nearing the building. “Marilyn approaching the Capital. As Patriots, there is a righteous revolution to take back our country ... To be there was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. STOP THE STEAL!” Hueper said an agent came back with a different and larger photo of the woman, which showed the suspected thief wearing a black sweater with large white snowflakes on it. The agent asked where in the house they could locate the sweater. Hueper said she reiterated she wasn't inside the building. “No. 2, why didn’t you show me this photo to start with? Because we can both obviously see here this is a different person.” Plus, she said, the sweater was hideous. Hueper said she grabbed the photo and held it next to her face, asking the female agent to look at both closely, “Me. Her. Me. Her,” she told the agent. Hueper said the agent grabbed the paper and walked off. Both women were wearing black Columbia down coats. However, in a photo posted on her husband’s Facebook page from Jan. 6, Hueper is shown wearing a black face mask, a green blouse open at the collar and a light green scarf. The surveillance video released by the FBI shows the sought-after woman wearing the black sweater with a snowflake print and dangling earrings. Also, the woman in the photo has detached earlobes, while Hueper says hers are attached. After insisting, Hueper was shown the front page of the warrant but not allowed to thoroughly read the document, she said. She read it only after receiving a copy as the dozen or so agents and Capitol Police officer left. According to the search warrants, agents could collect any electronics that might be suspected to have been involved, items stolen from the Capitol, a laptop with descriptors and a serial number — “which they didn’t find,” she said — and any paperwork related to planning violence. Hueper said she has not heard back from federal authorities, nor have agents returned her laptop, two iPads, two cellphones or the 50-cent pocket-sized Declaration of Independence booklet they confiscated April 28. She has not been arrested. Justice Department officials would say only that the investigation is ongoing. But she decided to go public with her story, just in case. “I better go online and protect myself before they call me in and make me this person,” she said. ___ Balsamo reported from Washington.

The Biden administration now says it supports waiving the intellectual property protections for COVID-19 vaccines, opening the door for their possible manufacturing by companies and countries around the world, beyond those that invented them. The U.S. had opposed the waiver, along with pharmaceutical companies like Johnson and Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer who are concerned about the precedent it would set and accused the administration of taking "an unprecedented step that will undermine our global response to the pandemic and compromise safety." The World Trade Organization is holding negotiations on patent waivers for COVID-19 vaccine technology this week.

As Canadians commemorate Red Dress Day in Canada, local government leaders are keen on addressing the national inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) and the report’s 231 Calls for Justice. Marion Buller, chief commissioner of the report, visited Thompson Rivers University to discuss the inquiry in 2019 and suggested the municipality and the band should begin strategizing how they can address the report. Some of the recommendations, Buller noted, include better resourced First Nations police services, health care to be treated a human right, the need for mobile services, safe and affordable transportation services, greater context when educating students about first contact and expanding legal aid. Direct action has yet been taken at the local level, but there has been engagement on the p[art of the band and the city is ready to listen. Tk’emlups te Secwepemc Chief, Rosanne Casimir, said the band on its own has not looked into how to implement the report, but it has been involved in discussions through other organizations, such as the BC Assembly of First Nations (BCAFN). Casimir herself, in March, made a motion at the BC Assembly of First nations to expand engagement on the national action plan for the report. “As a band, that is something we don’t have a department working on but what we do have is individuals who will be tasked to the various committees that are out there, advocating, supporting and participating,” Casimir said. Asked what results may come from these talks with other First Nations groups, Casimir said the biggest will be plans on how they can work together on the recommendations, noting the BCAFN just held a four-day session on the MMIWG report and one such plan is forthcoming for Tk’emlups to review. “We all want to see an end to the violence against individuals and we also want to work with everyone to ensure we have the same visioning and development for a national action plan and how we can do that together, so it’s not imposing upon, but it’s working together on, a national approach right down to the local approach,” Casimir said. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian said the city hasn’t specifically addressed the report, but takes its lead from the Tk’emlups band, which it meets with twice a year to discuss myriad issues. “If that was their wish to have a consultation on that we certainly would,” Chrisitian said, noting its something that could also fall under the purview of the municipality’s community services committee. May 5 is Red Dress Day in Canada, and Canadians are encouraged to wear red in order to draw attention to the more than 1,000 missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada. Casimir said the band will be posting an online writeup and asking people to say prayers on their own for those who have been lost and their families on May 5 as gatherings remain forbidden during the COVID-19 pandemic. Christian said it’s an important day for the City of Kamloops and Thompson-Nicola Regional District to recognize, noting some of the victims have resided in this area. He said the day reinforces the need to focus on personal protection for Indigenous women when alone and in vulnerable situations and the beed for an aggressive enforcement response for reports of missing First Nations women. The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls inquiry heard from 1,434 family members and survivors of violence, gathered testimony from 83 experts and knowledge keepers and held 15 community hearings and more than 50 statement-gathering events across Canada, Buller said, noting a research team also analyzed more than 900 studies for the report.
