    Getty Jalen Brunson. The New York Knicks may have landed their point guard of the future in Jalen Brunson, but it might have also come with a big cost. On August 1, NBA insider Chris Haynes reported the NBA has opened up a tampering investigation in the whether or not the Knicks made contact with Brunson before the opening of free agency. “The NBA has begun an investigation into the New York Knicks for alleged tampering regarding free agent pickup Jalen Brunson, sources inform Yahoo Sports,” he said. “NBA will look in whether New York Knicks made contract with Jalen Brunson prior to the start of the free agency period.NBA will look into whether New York Knicks made contact with Jalen Brunson prior to the start of the free agency period. — Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) August 1, 2022 The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Brunson was signing with the Knicks before free agency even opened, so New York could be in for a rough time.

    FURIOUS Sebastian Vettel stormed out of a meeting with fellow F1 drivers and FIA bosses - earning himself a suspended €25,000 (£21,000) fine. The German, who has been outspoken on the sport, particularly with the environmental consequences, is increasingly running a tightrope of controversy. 1Sebastian Vettel has been slapped with a fine after storming out of an F1 meetingCredit: Getty He was asked not to wear a controversial t-shirt on the grid in Canada regarding mining tar sands in the country.

    Getty Jalen Brunson of the Dallas Mavericks. The New York Knicks made a big splash in free agency and now they are expected to pay a hefty fine because of it. While it might not always seem like it, the NBA has rules that are meant to prevent tampering, which means free agents were only supposed to start negotiating potential deals once free agency opened on June 30. In the case of Jalen Brunson, the Knicks had reportedly agreed to a contract a full two days before free agency opened, which looked like a clear case of tampering. The NBA doesn’t always act on it, but when it happens the result can be disastrous. Last year, both the Bulls and Heat lost a draft pick because of the fines that were laid down on them, resulting in just 58 picks being made in the most recent NBA Draft. The Athletic’s Fred Katz reports the NBA is getting ready to hand down a punishment for the Knicks based on conversations he’s had with people around the league.Fine Coming to...
    Q: P.J. Tucker bolted the Bucks after winning a championship, so is he long term for the Heat? – Andy. A: I’m not sure anyone who is 37 is long term for any NBA team. But P.J. Tucker also didn’t bolt the Bucks. He was low-balled because of the Bucks’ salary situation, even after contributing to their 2021 title. For Tucker, it could be as simple with the Heat as coming back on a two- or three-year deal for a slight salary bump. I would think two years at about $18 million would be fair for both sides, or Tucker, even at 37, certainly could push for a third year, perhaps with some incentives for the Heat to protect their end. But if Tucker does push for the maximum of three years, $27 million the Heat can offer, then it could get tricky. Yes, the Heat would be left having to chase a replacement in free agency, but that still might be the better option than chasing potentially bad money. Q: If only the Heat didn’t have so much money...
    From KSTP: State officials announced the findings of an investigation into 3M’s Cottage Grove facility and said the company is being fined $2.8 million. According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, 3M inaccurately identified hazardous waste that it incinerated as non-hazardous waste in 1996, 2006, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2021. Additionally, the company failed to have a certified third-party verify the incinerator lab’s analysis, as required by its permit, between 2015 and 2020.

    Reading the fine print or understanding available offers means you could be saving money or taking advantage of refunds or freebies that you might not have otherwise known about, like a brand-new pair of Nike sneakers. That's the kind of attention to detail that can lead to some surprising upsides, according to Erika Kullberg, lawyer and founder of Plug and Law, a legal tech start-up for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Kullberg has found that you could be eligible for compensation for everything from getting bumped from your flight to having a package arrive after its guaranteed delivery date or money off an Apple purchase under its educational pricing. Airlines are already anticipating a busy summer, which makes it particularly important for passengers to understand the rules in the event of an unexpected change. And agreements like Delta's contract of carriage can be long. That's why it can pay off in a big way to take the time to read and fully understand the fine print. "Almost every transaction in your life involves a contract whether you're flying with an...

    The Federal Aviation Administration fined a Southwest Airlines passenger $40,000 for drinking his own alcohol on a flight, sexually assaulting a flight attendant and then smoking marijuana in the lavatory.    The whopping sum was the highest of eight fines totaling $161,823 that was levied by the FAA against passengers for 'unruly behavior involving alcohol,' the agency announced Monday, adding it has received nearly 300 reports of passenger disturbances due to alcohol this year. In August, the FAA told airport bars they should monitor alcohol intake and prevent giving customers to-go cups filled with booze before they boarded their flights because of the skyrocketing cases of unlawful behavior this year.     Through November 1, there have been 5,033 reports of unruly passenger incidents, including 3,642 related to pandemic face covering regulations.  The FAA said in April they issued a $40,823 fine against an unidentified passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight traveling from San Jose to San Diego In August, the FAA told airports they should monitor alcohol intake following an increase in bad behavior among passengers in 2021 RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis reminds me of someone. Someone from popular culture. Is it Hannibal Lecter? Nah. Lecter was far more discriminate when it came to choosing his victims. President Camacho from Idiocracy? No way. Camacho at least showed glimmers of empathy. Gus the Field-Goal Kicking Mule? Closer, but no. Gus was actually good at something. Jim Carrey’s talking asshole from Ace Ventura? Much closer—especially this version. But not quite. Assholes are warm-blooded, after all, and occasionally speak in marginally coherent sentences.  Then it occurred to me. He’s Brick Tamland, the gormless weatherman played by Steve Carrell in Anchorman. For one thing, DeSantis is as dumb as a, well, cinderblock, and for another, he doesn’t seem to know whose side he’s on—his constituents’ or the coronavirus’. Like Tamland, DeSantis continually stands abreast of his putative enemies while being gently reminded that he’s supposed to be fighting the virus (more on that in a moment).  The latest? With COVID-19 tearing through Florida like pork tapeworms through Donald Trump’s blood-brain barrier, DeSantis is doubling down on death. Because changing tacks in the face...
    Los Angeles County public libraries could soon stop fining patrons for late books and other materials under a proposal being considered by the county Board of Supervisors, a measure some consider long overdue. More than 200 cities and municipalities across the country, including the city of Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver and Dallas, have stopped fining borrowers, according to a motion introduced by Supervisor Janice Hahn. Hahn, whose 4th District includes Long Beach and Diamond Bar, will present her fine-free proposal at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday. If it passes, the county will move to waive fines and fees for overdue books and other materials for its system, which serves 3.4 million residents in unincorporated L.A. County and 49 incorporated cities. The county operates more than 80 community-based branches. “Incurring fines and fees creates a financial burden and major barrier to services on low-income families, fixed-income seniors, and those struggling financially,” Hahn said in her motion. “Fines have created a disproportionate impact on vulnerable individuals, particularly youth and older adults, noncitizens, and communities of...

    If the Mets aren’t able to lock him up with an extension, Francisco Lindor could find out next offseason exactly where he stands among the game’s best shortstops. In the meantime, the Mets’ new superstar believes he already knows the answer. “Overall? Me,” Lindor told Sports Illustrated, when asked who is the best shortstop. “Because I will do it every single day. I count on myself every single day. Every single day. Trevor Story?

    Under the new Massachusetts “hands-free” law, a driver can be fined $500 for using a mobile device while operating a vehicle. The law went into effect on Tuesday, Feb. 23. Massachusetts Hands-Free Driving Law prohibits the use of any electronic device - including mobile telephones - unless the device is being used in hands-free mode. And it’s not just the action of texting and driving the new law bans. Clicking around a GPS navigation screen while on the road is also prohibited. Here are five things every driver should know about the hands-free law in Massachusetts: 1. DON’T TOUCH IT Holding or supporting any electronic device/phone while driving is not permitted. You cannot touch the device unless to activate the hands-free mode and is properly mounted to the windshield dashboard or center console - no digging around for it in the passenger seat. 2. GPS NAVIGATION Simple activation of GPS navigation is permitted when the device is installed or properly mounted - but in no other situation. Actions such as driving while tapping in a new address, or manually...

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., says she feels "free" after the House booted her from her two committee assignments, saying her conservative voice wouldn’t have been heard anyway under Democrats’ "tyrannically controlled government." "I feel free," Greene told reporters outside the Capitol Friday, "because you know what's happening on these committees. ... We have basically a tyrannically controlled government right now."

"So now I have a lot of free time on my hands." The House Thursday took the unprecedented step of removing Greene from her two committee assignments for espousing violence and conspiracy theories on social media before she was elected to Congress in November. The 230-199 vote was bipartisan, with 11 Republicans joining all Democrats to oust Greene from the Committee on Education and Labor and the House Budget Committee.

    The Las Vegas Raiders head coach made a pitch to impending free agent Richard Sherman, which will earn him a fine for tampering. In year three of the Jon Gruden era, the Las Vegas Raiders were the closest they’ve been to making the playoffs. However, a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins curtailed any hopes they had of making the postseason. The Raiders have an obvious weakness, and that’s their defense. Gruden already has a new defensive coordinator in Gus Bradley and will now look to spend some money on the open market to get the Raiders over the hump. He has his eyes on one target already, and it might earn him a fine. During an appearance on “The Cris Collinsworth Podcast,” Gruden spoke to impending free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman, who co-hosts the show, and basically recruited him to Vegas. The problem is, Sherman is technically a member of the San Francisco 49ers until March 17. Gruden knew he could be fined but still went about recruiting him.Gruden trying to get a head start in free agent recruiting“Yes...

    Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) on Tuesday proposed fining members of Congress who refuse to wear masks on Capitol grounds $1,000 a day. Dingell’s legislation comes after three House members tested positive for the coronavirus following the breach of the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday when lawmakers were evacuated to one location, the Detroit Free Press reported. The representative told the Free Press that at the time, several legislators were not wearing masks. “It is not brave to refuse to wear a mask,” she said in a press release, adding, “It is selfish, stupid and shameful behavior that puts lives at risk.” Dingell continued: Days ago, a colleague of ours died from this virus and left behind a beautiful, young family to mourn his loss. Yet still, in the midst of a deadly assault on our United States Capitol, a number of our Republican colleagues laughed off rules designed to keep not just their colleagues safe, but to protect the lives of the teams of workers keeping things going, law enforcement, and staff throughout the Capitol.

    A Texas wedding photographer says she got sick with coronavirus after shooting a mask-free wedding — where the groom knew he had tested positive the day before the party but turned up to celebrate bare-faced anyway. The photographer, who kept her identity anonymous, shared the story about the selfish newlyweds with Texas Monthly, recalling the moment a bridesmaid told her that the groom knew he had COVID-19. When the photographer, who has asthma, came down with the illness a few days later, the newlyweds 'didn't care' that they'd put her health and life in jeopardy and refused to apologize. Selfish!

    Dozens of mask-less commuters were spotted breezing by Port Authority cops on the first day of the agency’s $50 fine for mask non-compliance Monday. Between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday, a Post reporter counted 42 different people entered the Port Authority Bus Terminal’s south entrance without masks on. Port Authority cops stationed at the entrance declined to comment — or take any enforcement actions against most violators. The transit agency instituted the $50 fine for anyone who refuses to mask-up in any of its facilities, including the bus terminal and all three of the New York region’s major airports. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo instituted his own fine on MTA transit properties in September. So far, actual fines on MTA systems have been fairly limited — officials say the financial penalty is merely a “tool” meant to encourage more compliance. A Port Authority spokeswoman echoed the MTA’s line. “We’re seeing over 95 percent voluntary compliance with mask-wearing at our facilities, including at the Midtown Bus Terminal,” spokeswoman Lindsay Kryzak said in a statement.
    DENVER (AP) — Joe Sakic’s free agency wish list: Depth and more depth. That’s no real surprise after Colorado’s injury-riddled season. The tricky part for the Avalanche general manager is fortifying an already talent-rich roster in this time of a flat salary cap ($81.5 million) that could be extended. Sakic is mindful of the budget given what lies ahead next season — pending deals for captain Gabriel Landeskog, rookie of the year Cale Makar and goaltender Philipp Grubauer. That’s why the Hall of Fame forward turned team executive is walking a fine line to improve a team that’s been knocked out in the second round the past two seasons. “You’ve got to be really careful looking into the future,” Sakic said in a video call Monday. “You have to have depth to win. … We feel we’re trying to put together as deep of a team as possible to make a run this year.” The Avalanche bolstered their blue line Monday by picking up defenseman Devon Toews from the New York Islanders in exchange for second-round selections in 2021...
