For March 18, 2011 – U.N. imposes a no-fly zone on Libya, The crisis at the Japanese nuclear plant gets worse, Morehead State continues to 'dance'
• Libya calls for cease-fire amid foreign military moves: "Libya called for a cease-fire and a halt to military action on Friday, hours after the U.N. Security Council authorized the use of force to protect besieged civilians in Libya. Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa, speaking to reporters Friday in Tripoli, said that in light of its membership in the United Nations, the country is 'obliged to accept the Security Council resolution that permits the use of force to protect the civilian population.'"
• Japan raises threat level at nuclear plant: "Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency raised the level for the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant Friday from a 4 to 5 - putting it on par with the 1979 incident at Pennsylvania's Three Mile Island."
• Japan's death toll climbs to nearly 7,000: "Japan documented more deaths Friday as Prime Minister Naoto Kan sought to reassure a nation reeling from disaster, saying that he is committed to taking firm control of a "grave" situation."
• Weekend full moon the biggest in about 20 years: "Saturday's full moon will be a super "perigee moon" - the biggest in almost 20 years. This celestial event is far rarer than the famed blue moon, which happens once about every two-and-a-half years. "The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993," said Geoff Chester with the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington. 'I'd say it's worth a look.'"

• A star emerges and more NCAA notes: "The country met Demonte Harper on Thursday. For the past three seasons — the entire time Morehead State has been on the map in college basketball — the Eagles have been synonymous with one name: Kenneth Faried. They were essentially Faried State ... But when it came time for Morehead’s Shining Moment, what should go down as the greatest play in the history of that institution and its 6,000-person town in Kentucky’s Daniel Boone Forest, the 13th-seeded Eagles had to depend on Harper, their senior point guard. And he delivered the three that knocked No. 4 Louisville out of the dance."
