The grand jury hearing the case typically doesn't consider it on Thursdays and doesn't meet on Fridays.        Weather forecasters say today will be filled with severe, stormy weather across much of the nation. A late-season storm system will blanket the Great Lakes region with snow, while severe thunderstorms are expected from the Gulf Coast up to the Tennessee Valley, and the Pacific Northwest could see snow.        Los Angeles Unified School District students, teachers, and staff will return to school today after a three-day strike. There is still no deal between the district and the unions representing service employees and teachers. L.A. Mayor Karen Bass has been mediating the negotiations since Wednesday.        An international sports governing body says transgender women will no longer be allowed to compete in female track and field events. World Athletics President Sebastian Coe said Thursday that starting on March 31st, no female transgender athlete who has gone through male puberty would be permitted to compete in female world-ranking competitions.        A new survey finds that young people don't mind paying more to see movies on the big screen if it means getting the best seats in the house. The survey from Morning Consult found that 54-percent of 18- to 26-year-old Gen Z ticket buyers and 46-percent of Millennials, 27 to 42 years old, said it's "appropriate" for movie theater chains to charge the most for the most desirable seats.
