ATLANTA (AP) -- The millions of lottery players who lined up at convenience stores, drove across state lines and joined office pools for a shot at instant riches in the $230 million Big Game jackpot will have yet another chance to do it all again.
No ticket matched all five numbers plus the Big Money Ball in Friday's drawing, so the sum grew to a record $300 million for the next drawing Tuesday.
''It's the largest jackpot in U.S. history,'' said Parquita Nassau, spokeswoman for the Georgia Lottery.
Study: Early hospital discharge helps stroke recovery
DALLAS (AP) -- Rehabilitation from a stroke appears to be more effective when patients are sent home earlier from the hospital, according to a study.
Researchers concluded that stroke patients undergoing at-home therapy mastered simple tasks such as walking up stairs, doing housework or working in the garden more quickly than those who had longer hospital stays.
The findings were published in the latest issue of Stroke, a journal of the American Heart Association.
Reform or get sued, Justice Department will tell LAPD
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Justice Department officials will bring a civil rights lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department unless city officials agree to a number of reforms, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

Cybersex addiction said to be spreading
ATLANTA (AP) -- Housewives, gay men, corporate executives -- none are immune from the growing addiction to online sex and a compulsion for ''hypersexuality'' that threatens to destroy relationships, psychologists say.
''The Internet is revolutionizing sexuality,'' said Al Cooper, clinical director of a sexuality clinic in San Jose, Calif.
He told psychologists that cybersex is changing the definition of sexual compulsion ''like crack cocaine changed the field of substance abuse.''
