Ex-Minnesota Orchestra maestro Stanislaw Skrowaczewski dies

Former longtime Minnesota Orchestra music director Stanislaw Skrowaczewski (skroh-vah-CHEHF'-skee) has died at age 93.

The Minnesota Orchestra says its president, Kevin Smith, was told by Skrowaczewski's family that he died Tuesday at a Minneapolis area hospital after suffering a second stroke earlier this month.

Skrowaczewski conducted major orchestras in England, Japan and other countries. His last concerts were with the Minnesota Orchestra in October 2016, conducting works by Anton Bruckner, his specialty.

Skrowaczewski led the Minnesota Orchestra for 19 years, starting in 1960, and was instrumental in the creation of Orchestra Hall, the orchestra's home in downtown Minneapolis. He served on the orchestra's artistic staff for 56 years.

The native of Poland began studying piano and violin at age 4, and composed his first symphonic work at age 7. He won the International Competition for Conductors in Rome in 1956.

Milo Yiannopoulos apologizes for remarks, quits Breitbart

Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos has resigned after coming under fire from other conservatives over comments on sexual relationships between boys and men.

Speaking to reporters in New York on Tuesday, the writer and provocative public speaker apologized for his remarks.

Yiannopoulos says his experiences as a victim of sexual abuse as a teenager made him feel he could say outrageous things on the subject. He says that was a mistake. And he says he never intended to suggest sexual abuse of minors is OK.

On Monday he was disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference after video of his remarks was promoted through social media by a conservative blog.

Publisher Simon & Schuster announced it would cancel the publication of his upcoming book, "Dangerous."

Judge orders R&B singer Chris Brown to stay away from ex

A judge has ordered R&B singer Chris Brown to stay away from his ex-girlfriend after she accused him of physically abusing and threatening her.

The Grammy winner was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Karrueche Tran and not attempt to contact her after she wrote in court filings that Brown had repeatedly threatened her since December.

Tran also accused the singer of punching her in the stomach and pushing her down stairs a few years ago. Her filing does not offer any additional specifics or note if she reported the events to police. It states that no one was present at the time.

The order, which was issued Friday, also calls for Brown to surrender any firearms he has until a March 9 hearing on the restraining order.

An email message sent to Brown's attorney Mark Geragos was not immediately returned.

Brown and Tran dated after the singer pleaded guilty to felony assault for an attack on Rihanna in 2009 just hours before the Grammy Awards.

A judge ended Brown's probation in 2015, after several missteps that included punching a man outside a Washington hotel and stints in rehab.

The singer also underwent domestic violence and anger management counseling.

A facility that treated Brown wrote in a 2014 letter to the judge overseeing his probation in the Rihanna case that the singer was being treated for bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and past substance abuse.

Brown's career faltered after the Rihanna attack and eventually rebounded and his album "F.A.M.E" won a Grammy Award in 2012.
