    Getty Brad Stevens, Boston Celtics Usually, teams in the NBA Finals aren’t subject to off-season rumors, but following the Boston Celtics game two loss against the Golden State Warriors, it seems like their bench could use an extra punch. According to Bleacher Report’s Grant Hughes, the Celtics should be looking for an upgrade at the point guard position, even if that means moving on from the impressive Payton Pritchard. Celtics own tradeable 1sts from 2024-, and have nice, layered tradeable salary: -Horford’s 26M expiring, White 16M, Theis 8M, Pritchard/Nesmith on rookie deals So they could still match salary & unload picks for guys like Brogdon/Barnes/UtahBogi or even swing big for Siakam — KEV. (@bucklezzzman) May 28, 2022 “Brogdon, though, would be a clear upgrade. He could initiate the offense as a playmaker or move off the ball as a floor-spacer who’d be much more dangerous attacking closeouts than Pritchard, whose lack of size makes finishing in traffic tricky. Perhaps most importantly, Brogdon is an adept and able-bodied switch defender. At 6’5″, he holds up just fine against...
    INTER MILAN striker Lautaro Martinez is reportedly on Chelsea's radar with the Serie A side desperate to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the San Siro. Belgian centre-forward Lukaku is facing an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge just a year after joining on a £97.5million deal. 2Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku could be heading back to Inter Milan this summerCredit: Getty 2Inter centre-forward Lautaro Martinez is understood to be on the Blues' radarCredit: Getty It is understood that the 29-year-old, who was the Blues' top scorer in the 2021-22 season with 15 goals in all competitions, is keen to re-join Inter. A loan deal could be on the cards with the Nerazzurri unwilling to match the player's £325,000-a-week salary. Chelsea are said to be prepared to subsidise some of his wages as they look to offload the ex-Everton ace.

    The Department of Public Safety (DPS) is encouraging motorists traveling the roadways throughout the state or visiting Georgia’s beaches Memorial Day weekend to practice safe driving habits.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – After the 2018 Valentine’s Day tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 students dead, Miami-Dade Police began brainstorming how to prevent mass casualty incidents from happening.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States has put China, Russia and five other countries on its annual blacklist for lax enforcement of intellectual property rights that leaves American companies vulnerable to copyright and trademark piracy. All seven countries on this year’s list were on last year’s, too. “China continues to be the largest origin economy for counterfeit and pirated goods,’’ according to the report. Also on the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative’s “priority watch list’’ were Argentina, Chile, India, Indonesia and Venezuela. The U.S. suspended its review this year of Ukraine — which made last year’s blacklist — while it attempts to fight off an invasion from Russia. The trade office also removed Saudi Arabia from its priority watch list, citing its crackdown on counterfeit and pirated goods, the creation of special intellectual property enforcement courts and other steps. To prepare the list, which was released Wednesday, the trade office reviewed the performance of more than 100 U.S. trading partners. U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said that the report identifies countries “that are falling short’’...

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: CB Jamal Perry, S Sheldrick Redwine, CB Nik Needman, RB Patrick Laird, TE Durham Smythe, WR Preston Williams, LB Sam Eguavoen. NEEDS: Many, starting with skill positions on offense and the offensive line, which was maligned at times for good reason last season. Fuller was brought in to stretch defenses with speed at the wideout spot in 2021; he barely played. Running back must be a priority. The Dolphins have made their decision on TE Mike Gesicki and given him the franchise tag, but now the question becomes if that exposes Ogbah — who has also earned a significant raise. More competition will likely be added to the QB room as well. The defense is a...
    Washington (CNN)The US intelligence community has made evaluating Russian President Vladimir Putin's state of mind a top priority in recent days as it seeks to establish how that is affecting his handling of the rapidly escalating Ukraine crisis, according to two sources familiar with the effort.The efforts come as longtime Putin-watchers have publicly speculated that his behavior has become increasingly erratic and irrational. Since he launched Russia's invasion of Ukraine last Wednesday, senior US officials have asked intelligence agencies to gather any new information they can on how the Russian leader is faring and how his mindset has been impacted by the unexpectedly unified and tough response from European neighbors and allies around the world.The US intelligence community has spent decades decoding the former KGB officer, who has effectively ruled Russia since 1999. But while the United States has tremendous institutional knowledge of the man, it has a notoriously poor view into his day-to-day decision-making. The Kremlin remains what intelligence officials call a "hard target" -- incredibly difficult to penetrate through traditional espionage. There has not been any new comprehensive...

    Getty Goran Dragic, left, guards LeBron James during the 2020 NBA Finals After a disappointing NBA trade deadline day in which the Lakers failed to accomplish much of anything—they passed on some offers, were rebuffed on others and wound up holding steady with a roster that has produced a 26-31 record and losses in 12 of its last 17 games—attention now turns to the buyout market, with the Lakers hoping to ignite the team with a mid-season signing. A handful of names has emerged as potential targets, but at the top of the list, according to league sources, is veteran point guard Goran Dragic, whose injury while with the Heat in 2020 badly hurt Miami’s chances against the Lakers in the NBA Finals.

    MANCHESTER UNITED will make finding a new striker a top priority this summer after seeing the goals dry up in recent weeks. The Red Devils have scored twice or more in just three of the 12 matches under interim boss Ralf Rangnick. 1Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is being eyed up by Manchester UnitedCredit: Getty Their forward options, which appeared healthy earlier in the season, suddenly look threadbare. Mason Greenwood has been suspended following his arrest, while Anthony Martial does not want to return to Old Trafford after joining Sevilla on loan. And Marcus Rashford, who was regularly played down the middle earlier in his career, now tends to play on the left. That leaves Rangnick with 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, who turns 35 on Monday and looks set to leave this summer. United have long admired Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, although Real Madrid appear to be his No 1 choice.

    BARCELONA have joined Arsenal in the race for Lille midfielder Renato Sanches' signature, according to reports. Lille confirmed in October that they will allow the 24-year-old to leave the club in January if a suitable offer emerges. 1Sanches has reignited his career during his spell at LilleCredit: Getty Reports in France at the time suggested that Arsenal were prepared to make an offer of around £25million for the Portuguese midfielder. However, the Gunners may now face some competition from Spanish giants Barcelona who are also eyeing up a move for the star. According to Portuguese broadcaster ELEVEN, Sanches has become a 'priority signing' for Xavi. Barcelona have already named Ferran Torres as their first signing of the window, but they are hoping to make a few more additions in a bid to climb up the LaLiga table. Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently in the market for another midfielder to fill in the gap left by Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny who will both compete in the Africa Cup of Nations this month.

    Members of the Turkic diaspora from East Turkistan, an occupied region China calls Xinjiang, urged President Joe Biden on Wednesday to aid the tens of thousands of Uyghurs and other ethnic groups fleeing the ongoing Chinese genocide in the region. Supporters of the East Turkistan National Awakening Movement, an organization that calls for recognition of East Turkistan as an occupied country and advocates against the decades of Chinese repression of Uyghurs and other communities there, held an event in front of the State Department on Wednesday to recognize the anniversary of the Chinese occupation of East Turkistan, which occurred when the communists, under Mao Zedong, invaded and turned the region into what is now known as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). China annexed East Turkistan in 1949 and has since engaged in an extensive campaign to displace its native Uyghur population with members of the Han ethnic group, which make up the majority in eastern China.

There are many demands on our wallets. We can feel overwhelmed by all the tasks on our to-do lists and pressure to create the “perfect” holiday.

    Metro is taking steps to make boarding through all doors available to bus riders. During a meeting last Thursday, transit officials gave an update on the regional Bus Transformation Project, which aims to improve service and customer experience. In order to make all-door boarding possible, rear-door targets are needed, which is part of a larger fare contract that’s underway, according to Metro’s Raka Choudhury. More Metro News More Transportation News Metro will receive the targets, which act like fare boxes, and start installing them next fall. “Late 2022 is when we will be able to start piloting all-door boarding,” said Choudhury, who manages the bus priority team. The project study found that bus riders in the D.C. area live in households that don’t have a car, make less than $30,000 annually, have limited English proficiency, and belong to minority communities. It also found that bus riders want more-frequent service, as well as reliable and faster service, more direct buses and fewer transfers, and longer hours of operation, among other things.

    JUVENTUS have made signing Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic a priority, according to reports. The news is a blow to Arsenal, who are reportedly keen on the striker following his good form this season. 2Juventus have made signing Dusan Vlahovic a priorityCredit: Getty Juventus have multiple attacking transfer targets, including Benfica's Darwin Nunez, but according to Tuttosport Vlahovic is at the top of their shortlist. The Serbian, 21, has scored 10 goals in 12 games this term, eight of which have come in Serie A. And after failing to replace Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer transfer window, the Old Lady are in need of a new forward. Paulo Dybala is Juventus' top scorer in Serie A with just three goals, and that highlights their need for a new striker. As a result, they could push to sign Vlahovic, which is a setback for the Gunners. And although Arsenal could be willing to meet Fiorentina's £68million asking price, Vlahovic may not be keen on moving to North London.

    Former President Donald Trump issued a stark warning to Republicans as he continued to repeat his allegations of voter 'fraud': back his ongoing efforts or Republicans 'will not be voting' in the off-year elections and beyond. Trump made the threat in one of a flurry of statements from his 'Save America' PAC Wednesday, after once again claiming he 'won' the election. If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.' Trump's attack comes as GOP leaders are eyeing the 2022 elections as potential takeover opportunity, with Democrats holding just three-vote majority in the House. The Senate is split 50-50. Former President Donald Trump, who held a rally in Iowa Saturday, warned that Republicans won't vote if the party doesn't 'solve' what he called 'fraud' in the 2020 elections With covid still raging, built-in advantages, historical trends for off-year elections, the GOP stands a chance to stop or slow much of the Biden...
    Alaska tops COVID-19 hospitalization record Narendra Modi Fast Facts Manchester United have reportedly made Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland their top transfer target next summer despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, according to ESPN's Mark Ogden. © dpa Erling Haaland Haaland reportedly has a €75 million release clause in his Dortmund contract at the end of this season. Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris-Saint Germain are also interested in the Norwegian striker. United expects "stiff competition" for Haaland next summer, according to ESPN.

    Senate Republicans have one mantra for when they finally recess: It's the economy, stupid. Midterm messaging about gains in job growth and gross domestic product (GDP) since Joe Biden took office are critical for Democrats, particularly as the delta variant surge begins to plant the seed of uncertainty in voters' minds.  Several reports have surfaced in the last several months warning that voters aren't clear enough about Biden's accomplishments. “Even among voters who have a favorable view of Joe Biden, there is a real lack of information about the specifics of the Biden Agenda, warned a July memo from the pro-Biden super PAC Unite the Country. The memo noted that Republican disinformation is partially to blame. And recent battleground district polling from the House campaign arm found Democrats falling a half-dozen points behind Republicans in the generic ballot, largely due to a gap in voters' understanding of what Democrats have done to shore up a U.S. economy battered by COVID-19. That's the bad news—voters simply aren't clear about Biden's accomplishments and how relatively successful they have been in rebooting the...

    Getty Images The coronavirus pandemic changed a lot of things for Americans, including work, family life and more. It also made many reconsider their personal finances. Now, as the health crisis seemingly wanes, 51% of Americans said having an emergency fund is now a higher financial priority than it was before Covid, according to a survey from financial services website Personal Capital. The survey of more than 2,000 American adults was conducted online by The Harris Poll for Empower Retirement between March 23 and April 5.

    HERMOSA — North-Grand High School is getting a youth intervention specialist, psychologist and drama teacher this school year. The psychologist will be at the school full-time, a first for the school. The changes will help the school care for its students socially and emotionally — and they come as schools increasingly look for more ways to provide for students’ mental health and prevent and respond to conflict in holistic ways. Principal Emily Feltes said the hires are all about providing resources to the community. “As a principal of a neighborhood school, I feel like the school should be the heartbeat of the community,” she said. “We should be welcoming families in. We should be able to provide resources. … I’m really passionate about figuring out ways to be able to do that.” The youth intervention specialist will engage students in social-emotional learning, helping students develop communication skills, deal with conflict in and out of the classroom and learn what constitutes a healthy relationship. The youth intervention specialist will also provide additional support as the school looks to implement restorative justice practices...
    (CNN)Democrats from President Joe Biden to the most junior member of Congress must immediately make saving America's democracy their only priority. That means everything from raising the issue nonstop in the media to publicly pressuring their colleagues in the Senate to reform the filibuster to allow a vote on voting rights legislation and even threatening to withhold federal infrastructure aid to states that enact laws that restrict voting access. Dean ObeidallahVoting is the lifeblood of our democracy. If we don't protect that sacred right, then our vote -- our voice -- on issues from climate change to criminal justice reform to everything in between will not be heard. It's not hyperbolic to say that this current battle against the GOP's efforts to suppress the vote may be the last stand for our republic.Alarmingly, though, the GOP is winning its war on our democracy. Since January, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, Republican-controlled state legislatures have enacted 22 new laws to make it more difficult to vote. Republicans in Texas are currently pushing to enact a sweeping voter suppression measure...
    GABRIEL JESUS is Juventus' top target - even though Cristiano Ronaldo is tipped to stay another year. Manchester City's Jesus reportedly heads a Juve strike wish-list containing Everton's Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi, Dusan Vlahovic and Andrea Belotti. 2Man City's Brazil ace Gabriel Jesus leads the wanted list of strikers for Juventus 2Cristiano Ronaldo could now stay at Juventus after being linked with PSG and old club Man Utd Now Tuttosport claim Juve chiefs met over the weekend to confirm their prime interest in 24-year-old Brazil star Jesus and old boy Kean, 21. Juventus have long shadowed Jesus, who often failed to hold down a regular place with Premier League champions City. And Kean shone on loan for PSG last season after never reaching his best in the Prem. Manchester United and PSG have both been linked with Ronaldo, while Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has publicly admitted he remains a huge fan of the 36-year-old. Juventus are still unsure of Ronaldo's future. But it appears the former United and Real frontman is happy to remain for an extra season. The Italian giants initially seemed...

United are now eager to ensure his head isn’t turned by giving him the wages he deserves. However, the Red Devils are sure to continue scouring the market for new signings....

                      by Eric Lendrum  The highly-connected and well-funded network of donors, think tanks, and other institutions run by the Koch Brothers is pushing for Congress to “immediately prioritize” amnesty for illegal aliens, as Breitbart reports. The Koch network’s declaration comes on the anniversary of the unpopular, controversial, and highly unconstitutional “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program, an executive order signed by then-President Barack Obama to give blanket amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegals. Obama had signed the order after failing to get the program passed by Congress in the form of the Dream Act. The Libre Initiative, one of many entities funded by the Kochs, declared that “The time for Congress to act is now, full stop…Policymakers should not look to the courts or to the executive branch for relief, but should instead immediately prioritize this issue.” The organization falsely claimed that amnesty for illegals “has broad bipartisan support from the American people.” This is not the first time that a Koch-funded entity has publicly supported amnesty. Last month, multiple groups...

    The United States Justice Department will elevate the level of investigations and attention it places on terrorism to a similar degree regarding ransomware attacks. The move comes in light of increased ransomware attacks, such as the one on the Colonial Pipeline and other mounting damage caused by cybercriminals. Internal guidance on Thursday sent a letter to U.S. attorneys offices stating how a newly created task force had been assembled in Washington D.C. to combat the problem. "To ensure we can make necessary connections across national and global cases and investigations, and to allow us to develop a comprehensive picture of the national and economic security threats we face, we must enhance and centralize our internal tracking," said the guidance, according to Reuters. "Its a specialized process to ensure we track all ransomware cases regardless of where it may be referred in this country, so you can make the connections between actors and work your way up to disrupt the whole chain," John Carlin said, acting deputy attorney general at the Justice Department.   Last month, a cybercriminal group that the...

    To get a better look at the Raiders’ roster and their NFL Draft needs, we’re taking a daily look at position groups. Today’s final offering: Offensive line WHO’S HERE Starters: LT Kolton Miller, LG Richie Incognito, C Andre James, RG Denzelle Good, RT Brandon Parker. Backups: T Jaryd Smith-Jones, C Nick Martin, G Lester Cotton Jr., T Kamaal Seymour, C-G Erik Magnuson 2021 OUTLOOK With Rodney Hudson, Gabe Jackson and Trent Brown out of the picture, it’s a new look for the Raiders offensive line. Hudson and Jackson played all 16 games last season. G.M. Mike Mayock is spinning it that the Raiders have attempted to get younger and more athletic. Miller is the anchor at left tackle with a contract to prove it while Incognito tries to coax another season or two out of a 38-year-old body. James, who watched Hudson take every snap a year ago, will be given every opportunity to be his successor and he got a modest contract extension as a vote of confidence. Martin, a starter with Houston, was signed in...
