Before Patriots quarterback Tom Brady led the Patriots to a comeback win over the Texans, he stood for the national anthem with one arm intertwined with wide receiver Phillip Dorsett and the other over his heart. Brady was asked about that after the game and said his message was “there’s just a great love for [ more]

New evidence proves that the ancient Egyptians constructed the Great Pyramid at Giza by transporting 170,000 tons of limestone in boats. It has long been known that the rock was extracted eight miles away in Tura and that granite used in the monumental structure was quarried 533 miles away in Aswan. However, archaeologists have disagreed over how the material was transported to Giza, now part of modern-day Cairo, for construction of Pharaoh Khufu’s tomb in 2600 BC. Now that mystery could be a step further to being solved after the discovery of an ancient scroll of papyrus, a ceremonial boat and a network of waterways, reported the Mail on Sunday. The new evidence shows that thousands of laborers
On Sunday, the Bears became patriots. An organization that usually recoils from controversy, risk or anything that might carry a future price tag watched many of its players lock arms in solidarity during the national anthem at Soldier Field. Those players had finally crossed a line, shoved by a U.S. president who apparently doesn’t know what freedom means. President Donald Trump’s scathing comments about athletes who kneel in protest during the anthem induced a huge response in the sports world, pushing those who had stood on the sidelines into activists. During a Friday rally in Huntsville, Ala., Trump had said NFL owners should fire players for disrespecting the American flag. Calling any
A gunman wearing a ski mask stormed into a Nashville, Tennessee-area church on Sunday, shooting seven people before attacking a church usher who then confronted the man with a weapon and subdued him, Nashville police said. The shooting - which left a 39-year-old woman dead - occurred shortly before noon at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn., about 12 miles southeast of downtown Nashville. Police identified the alleged shooter as Emanuel Kidega Samson, 25, of Tennessee; police said he will be charged with murder and attempted murder. Don Aaron, a spokesman for the Nashville Police Department, said Samson drove up to the church and shot and killed a woman who was standing near her vehicle in the parking lot.
When Professor Reb Beatty of Maryland’s Anne Arundel Community College arrived at his accounting class to administer a test last week, he hardly could have imagined that he’d be the one getting outsmarted. In a Sept. 20 Facebook post that’s since gone viral, Beatty explained that he’d told his students that they were allowed to bring in a “3x5” cheat sheet to use during the test. Beatty, however, failed to specify the unit of measurement he was referring to.
Puerto Rico’s governor met with mayors from around the ravaged island on Saturday as a dam in the U.S. territory’s northwest threatened to collapse from flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said on Friday that some 70,000 people who live in a cluster of communities downstream from the earthen dam on the rain-swollen Guajataca River were being evacuated. But municipal authorities on Saturday suggested not as many people were at risk as previously thought and that only about 320 people had been evacuated, according to a report in the local newspaper El Nuevo Dia. Officials could not be reached on Saturday to provide an update on the evacuation or the dam, which authorities had said was in imminent danger of complete collapse. Meanwhile, people across the island were struggling to dig out from the devastation left by the storm, which killed at least 25 people as it churned across the Caribbean, according to officials and media reports. “Beginning meeting with our mayors to know the most urgent needs and distribution of resources,” Rossello said in a Twitter message on Saturday. The governor planned to hold a briefing later in the day, according to media reports. Severe flooding, structural damage to homes and virtually no electric power were three of the most pressing problems facing Puerto Ricans, said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo during a tour of the island.

National anthem protests have become such a divisive issue that the aim of Colin Kaepernick’s original protest has been lost on a lot of people. NFL on FOX analyst Howie Long took time to remind viewers that these players who decide to protest aren’t disrespecting the country, but instead fighting against racial inequality. Standing for the anthem is something I would not choose to do, but I fully support the right to do it. That being said, what’s being lost in the criticism of the form of the protest is the message of inequality. Put it in perspective: As a white father having raised three boys, there were a million things to worry about on a daily basis. But it’s impossible for me to understand
How committed is Harvard University to ensuring a diverse student body? Not very, according to critics of the school’s decision to rescind its offer of admissions to Michelle Jones. Jones applied to its Ph.D. program in American studies last year and was rewarded with a full scholarship by the department’s admissions committee, but that decision was overruled by the university’s administration after it learned more about her background. Until last month, Jones, a black woman, was in prison for the murder of her 4-year-old son more than two decades ago. Jones says the child was a product of nonconsensual sex Jones had when she was 14 with a high-school senior and that her mother beat her as a
The debate over President Trump’s criticism of NFL players who don’t stand during the national anthem spilled over Sunday into the parking lot of the StubHub Center in Carson, where Los Angeles Chargers fans were gathered to watch the team battle the Kansas City Chiefs. Tobin Ellis, 43, was sitting with a group of friends a few hours before the game, tailgating in the parking lot outside the stadium. They were drinking beers and grilling carne asada on a small charcoal grill. Ellis said he heard Trump's comments and has been following the response. "Our president should be spending his time on more important things," he said from a lawn chair seated in front of a black SUV with a giant TV propped
For decades, we have been trying to deter the North Korean regime from acquiring nuclear weapons. But we have failed in deterring that government’s leaders. The country now has nuclear capability and a means to deliver its payloads to many places, including America. We have tried pressuring China and Russia to persuade North Korea to cease its pursuit of nuclear weapons and its provocative acts. But the truth is Kim Jong Un is not going to listen to anyone. We must accept the fact that diplomacy is not going to work regardless of how much we want it to. This man has his own agenda, and he will stop at nothing to accomplish it - even going as far as killing his own family members. That leaves
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts say he'd take issue with a player kneeling during the national anthem.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says that he and a fellow conservative senator are inclined to oppose a new bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, making it even less likely that Senate Republican leaders will find the votes to get the proposal through the chamber.
