President Biden is extending his condolences to the family of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. The president met with Navalny's widow and daughter in San Francisco today, less than a week after Navalny died in a Russian prison. Biden expressed admiration for Navalny's courage and legacy of fighting corruption in the Kremlin.        The first U.S. moon landing since 1972 is successful. Houston-based Intuitive Machines guided its Odysseus lander onto the moon Thursday. The lander will collect data needed by NASA, which is planning to land near the moon's south pole later this decade.        GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley says she agrees with a recent Alabama Supreme Court ruling that frozen embryos are children. However, she told CNN that she has not endorsed the ruling. Last week's ruling said embryos created during in-vitro fertilization are "extra uterine children," and are legally protected in Alabama like any other child.        The Northeast is expected to get hit with a storm that will bring rain and possible snow. Forecasters say the system will move across the Midwest today then move eastward into Friday. The East Coast is expected to get mostly rain, but northern New England could see snow.        A settlement has been reached in the Petito civil suit against Brian Laundrie's family and their lawyer. The settlement was worked out in mediation in Tampa on Wednesday for an undisclosed amount of money. Gabby Petito is the 22-year-old Long Island travel blogger murdered by her Florida fiance, Brian Laundrie, during a 2021 "van life" road trip.        The first baseball game of the spring is today in Arizona. The Dodgers and Padres squared off in the lone game in Peoria, with four more games on tap for Friday in the desert. The rest of MLB teams will begin spring games on Saturday in both Florida and Arizona.
