As I mentioned in Open Thread, it's hard to pretend to be lighthearted when there are bigger things than the salacious stories my editors skipped over this week. With that in mind, I've included some items in this week's round up that xoJaners have already covered, but that still deserve our attention.

The troubling battle between Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb for the right to her embryos continues. [HuffPo]

A woman in Colorado was shamed by her daughter's school for packing "unhealthy snacks." [Jezebel]

Seaworld Barbie has quit her job in a political statement made by Mattel Inc. [HelloGiggles]

An HIV outbreak in Indiana has been linked to intravenous painkillers. [Buzzfeed]

Freddie Gray's "previously existing spinal injury" rumor has been debunked. [Gawker]

100 people, including members of the press, were kept in Baltimore jails for two days without charges. [Gawker]

The death toll in Nepal has surpassed 5,000. [Buzzfeed]
