    Serena Williams is not done just yet, and as the stakes are getting higher in the US Open, so too are the prices to watch her play. Williams advanced to the third round on Wednesday by beating No. 2 seed Anett Kontaveit 7-6, 2-6, 6-2, and the ticket market is exploding as she continues her farewell tour. According to data from TickPick, the 'get-in' price for Williams' third round match Friday vs. Ajla Tomljanovic is $565, with the average ticket now costing $605.  Serena Williams held her nerve in the final set Wednesday to defeat Estonia's Anett Kontaveit That second figure is a staggering 221% more expensive than what the average third round ticket was going for - $188 - before she had advanced. The Open is expected to be Williams' last tournament of her career, and it wasn't even clear if she'd make her way to the hard court after spending a year out of the sport. But it was confirmed in July the six-time tournament champ would take her last crack at winning in New York, and ticket prices...
    ATLANTA — Joc Pederson has been the recipient of frequent taunts from opposing fans ever since Tommy Pham slapped him across the face over a fantasy football feud. With Pham and the Reds coming to town starting Friday, the tables for once might be turned. But Pederson, who is all too familiar with the fans in the left-field bleachers of Oracle Park, hopes they don’t take it too far. “There’s a respect level that needs to be held up,” Pederson said. “When you see games in New York or wherever they were when they start throwing stuff on the field, that’s not OK. It doesn’t help any situation. It makes it only worse. … “I’ve gotten worn out quite a bit by it on the road. I usually get yelled at for getting slapped. … But I don’t think our fans, I don’t know, they usually don’t like any left fielder, so it’s no different, I don’t think. They’re probably going to say, ‘What’s the matter with so-and-so, and he’s a bum.’ I got that quite a bit when I...

The American actress attended Bendigo Art Gallery in Victoria to open the new Elvis Presley exhibition, Elvis: Direct from Graceland 'Elvis at one time thought that he would be forgotten.

    Until early yesterday morning, the people of Yavoriv in the far west of Ukraine considered themselves blessed. Blessed that the fighting was hundreds of miles away, that living on the cusp of Western Europe, their peaceful existence would endure come what may. Mothers told anxious children not to worry about the Russians.  ‘I told mine that war would never reach us here,’ says Yana Volbyn, 29.  ‘I said the fighting was so distant it might as well be in a foreign land.’  Still, this small, unremarkable town rolled up its sleeves and did its bit for the war effort nonetheless. Just 12 miles from the Polish border, many of its 12,000 citizens sheltered refugees, some of its menfolk joined volunteer units and everyone observed the 10pm curfew, scrupulous about turning off lights lest they might aid Russia’s night bombers. True, they shared their town with a military training base. ‘But that place was about peacekeeping, right?’ says Yaroslav Smuk, 21, shaking his head. Not to Vladimir Putin. The barracks at the International Peace Keeping and Security Centre in Yavoriv burns...

    A white Virginia town councilman came under fire after posting a picture of himself wearing blackface to resemble Eddie Murphy in 'Coming to America' for Halloween. Warsaw town council member Faron Hamblin said later that he dressed up as fictional black musician Randy Watson from the 1988 romantic film out of 'respect' and 'love,' and that he only wore blackface to 'dress the part.' Hamblin added that Murphy portrayed a Jewish character in the same movie and nobody seemed to take issue with that, but that he knew Murphy meant no harm. 'Like Eddie, or Dave Chappelle I don't go around walking on eggshells,' he said. Hamblin, one of seven councilmembers of the northern Virginia town, has since deleted both the original post and the following explanation.

Boss Warren Gatland didn't even pick the three-times tourist for the first game in Cape Town. 1Mako Vunipola has won the battle for the no.1 shirt against South AfricaCredit: Getty Images - Getty But after Wyn Jones was struck down with a shoulder problem the 30-year-old was called onto the bench to play back-up to Rory Sutherland. Now, though, Vunipola looks to have won the race to reclaim the no.1 shirt. After missing out at first last week, Vunipola said: "It was hard. "The initial reaction was frustration and you start wondering what you could have done. "The best thing about it was that Gats was very open about it and said that anyone who wanted to speak about selection come and talk to me. "But as soon as you get past that you congratulate your team-mate who has got the opportunity to go out there and represent you. "You’re gutted for yourself, but you also know you have a massive role...
    MADISON, New Jersey -- You better not pout, because Santa Claus is still coming to town. But with COVID this year, Santa's safe travels won't just require Rudolph's bright nose guiding his sleigh.The decades-long tradition of St. Nick visiting the town of Madison, New Jersey was kept alive this holiday season through a partnership with the Boxcar app, an integrated commuting company that has repurposed its software to create a COVID-safe Santa experience."This year has been totally different than anything else we've done before. We've decided that the best way is to have people make reservations, people wait in their cars and then they come up and speak to me six feet away," said Santa Claus. Related: Local NJ farm grows over 40,000 poinsettias ahead of the holidays Through the Boxcar app, families can reserve their time slot, avoid long lines, and most importantly, avoid any physical contact with other families.

    Times Square looks very different eight months after the lockdown started. Frank Olito/ Insider In March, I explored Manhattan at the start of the coronavirus lockdown, and eight months later, I retraced my steps to see how the city has changed. Grand Central Terminal and Times Square are busier than they were in March, but they're not as busy as they were before the pandemic.  In Bryant Park, I saw elements of the old New York — an ice skating rink and tables have been set up for New Yorkers to enjoy the outdoors.  I found that New York City is very slowly adjusting to a new normal. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The coronavirus pandemic is completely changing the world. That was clear to me back in March, as I watched New York City — a place I've called home for five years — go into lockdown. Stores closed, restaurants boarded up, and people stayed inside their cramped apartments to wait out the pandemic.  A couple of weeks after the lockdown went into effect in...

More than 11 million square feet of office space currently sits vacant across the city. Some companies breaking leases, as uncertainty looms about the future and a vaccine."Companies had put space on the market, because they just didn't know what their needs we're going to be after all this," said Robert Sammons, a senior researcher with real estate firm Cushman and Wakefield.In the last three months, the city's vacancy rate has jumped from 9.9 percent up to 14.1 percent, according to Sammons.The areas hit...
    Savannah Rychcik August 20, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump warned Pennsylvania voters on Thursday if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is elected in the upcoming November election, chaos will ensue in their towns. Trump held his rally outside of Mariotti Building Products in Old Forge just outside Biden’s birthplace of Scranton. He challenged voters to reflect on the violence erupting in cities across the country as a result of protests. “If you want a vision of your life under Biden presidency, think of the smoldering ruins in Minneapolis, the violent anarchy of Portland, the bloodstained sidewalks of Chicago, and imagine the mayhem coming to your town and every single town in America,” Trump said. He added, “You’re not going to have law and order.”Watch his remarks below: Trump: "If you want a vision of your life under Biden presidency, think of the smoldering ruins of Minneapolis, the violent anarchy of Portland, the bloodstained sidewalks of Chicago, and imagine the mayhem coming to your town." pic.twitter.com/EfoZOKFd7V— The Recount (@therecount) August 20, 2020This is not the first time Trump suggested a Biden...
    It seems the town’s efforts to draw in weed entrepreneurs may be paying off. Residents will get to ask questions about a proposed marijuana cultivator coming to Templeton during an up-coming informational session. A marijuana cultivation facility is being proposed for 642 & 0 Patriots Road. The meeting will be held remotely, Sept. 1, at 6:30 p.m., and can be viewed on TCTV’s Youtube channel. In 2019, noting the tax revenues other communities were brought due to the new marijuana industry, Templeton officials began reaching out to growers to boost interest in doing business in town.  Previously, a cultivator, 1620 Lab from Athol had investigated doing business at the old Baldwinville Elementary School. 
    Phil Robertson hasn't slowed down since the family's hit show “Duck Dynasty" went off the air in 2017. He hosts a popular BlazeTV podcast called “Unashamed" and a BlazeTV show titled, “In the Woods with Phil" and pens books like “Jesus Politics: How to Win Back the Soul of America." But despite continued success and all that comes along with it, Robertson, 74, hasn't moved away from his first priority: helping others discover faith. "All we're doing is we're reaching out to our neighbor, and we're telling them to love their God, repent and turn to God, walk like Jesus did," Robertson told the "Edifi With Billy Hallowell" podcast. "Love God and love your neighbor … I do not see the downside to that." (Read also: 'Joy': Actor Chris Pratt Invokes Bible Verses to Reveal Baby's Birth) And the impact of Robertson's work is quite stunning, as he said his "Unashamed" podcast has encouraged groups of people to visit his small town of West Monroe, Louisiana, to be baptized.
