Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant sits on the bench during the Lakers NBA game against the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, March 10, 2015Kobe Bryant will make next season his last with the Los Angeles Lakers after 20 years that have produced five NBA titles, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said. "He has indicated to me this is it," Kupchak told SiriusXM NBA Radio.

With the once mighty Catholic Church's influence ravaged by child abuse scandals, opinion polls indicated the proposal would pass by as much as two-to-one, making Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote. Irish national broadcaster RTE estimated turnout was likely to reach 60 percent in Dublin, which would be the highest in a referendum for years.
