    Former New Jersey attorney general Peter Harvey was supposed to hear the Deshaun Watson case — but then an agreement was reached by the NFLPA and NFL. And Harvey was no longer needed, as reported by the New York Post. The Cleveland Browns quarterback — who was accused of sexually assaulting dozens of massage therapists — had his punishment appealed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell under the league's Person Conduct Policy. Watson, 26, was initially hit with a six-game suspension - much to the chagrin of many fans, and his victims — but his camp and the NFL agreed on a rectified 11-game suspension, and record-setting $5 million fine. The fine is the largest player fine in the history of the league, according to The Athletic. Under the terms of the agreement, Watson must also undergo counseling. Harvey made history as New Jersey's first Black attorney general, having been appointed by former Gov. Jim McGreevey as acting AG in 2003. He was confirmed by the State Senate as AG four months later and served for three years. In 2017, he...
    (CNN)The attorney of Deshaun Watson's accusers says the NFL "does not care about the rights of women" following the Cleveland Browns quarterback's suspension for sexual misconduct allegations.Appearing on ESPN's "First Take," attorney Tony Buzbee attacked the investigation, saying he hopes the NFL will appeal the case, but his clients are angered and disappointed by the lenient suspension handed down by a disciplinary officer. "Don't expect the NFL to do anything heroic here," Buzbee said. Watson was suspended on Monday for six games without pay for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy in private meetings with massage therapists, according to a ruling by a retired federal judge jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFL Players Association. Watson has repeatedly denied the accusations. Read More"I've never assaulted, I never disrespected, and I never harassed any woman in my life," Watson has said.

    Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after Monday’s training camp practice that he was “not at liberty” to share his opinion on the NFL suspending Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson for six games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy following accusations of sexual misconduct. “That’s for the league to decide,” Harbaugh said. Watson, who was traded from the Houston Texans to the Browns in March, has been accused by two dozen women in Texas of sexual misconduct during massage treatments, and he recently settled 23 of 24 civil lawsuits. In a 15-page report, disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson, a former federal judge, said the NFL recommended Watson be suspended for the entire 2022 season. Robinson said was behavior “more egregious than any before reviewed by the NFL.” The league has until Thursday at 9 a.m. to file a written appeal. The NFL Players Association released a statement on Sunday night saying they stand for Robinson’s ruling and hope the league does the same. Harbaugh, meanwhile, praised the Ravens’ zero-tolerance rule for domestic abuse allegations, which was put into place after...
    That’s it? Six games? Quarterback Deshaun Watson settled claims by 23 women alleging sexual misconduct. The Houston Texans settled with 30 women for claims against Watson. And the first thought is he received a wrist-slap of a six-game suspension considering comparative penalties. The accompanying thought remains: Thank goodness the Miami Dolphins didn’t trade for Watson’s creepy story. Thanks all the lucky stars a couple of women held out from settling with him, or he would have been traded to the Dolphins last November, as Watson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, has said. What’s the saying about the deals you don’t make are the best ones? Cleveland’s daily conversation would be our disturbing mess. This upbeat Dolphins training camp would be dragged in mud of protests, debates, arguments and general morality wars. That’s not even getting into the past several months before Monday’s decision, when the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center said how the six-game suspension, “dangerously mirrors the flaws in our justice system and sends a grave message to our communities.” The NFL’s arbiter, former judge Sue L. Robinson, explained that Watson’s “pattern...
    Bob Baffert has been the face of American horse racing for nearly 30 years. His success on the sport’s biggest stages and his shock of white hair make him hugely recognizable, even to the average person who doesn’t follow the sport outside of the Kentucky Derby. He trained American Pharoah to the first Triple Crown sweep in 37 years in 2015. He repeated the feat with Justify in 2018. In all, Baffert has won a record-tying six Kentucky Derbies, seven Preaknesses and three Belmonts. But he won’t be at Churchill Downs on Saturday for the 148th Derby and it’s not because he doesn’t have any contenders. WHY IS BAFFERT BANNED FROM THE DERBY? Churchill Downs Inc. barred Baffert from entering horses at any of its tracks for this year and through mid-2023. The punishment resulted from his 2021 Derby winner Medina Spirit failing a post-race drug test and later being disqualified from that victory in a ruling handed down this year. Medina Spirit tested positive for betamethasone, an anti-inflammatory medication. It’s allowed in Kentucky but must clear...
    Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has been suspended from Major League Baseball for two seasons over allegations he punched and choked a woman into unconsciousness during sex in 2021.  Bauer has repeatedly denied the allegations, and this week filed a lawsuit against his accuser, San Diego woman Lindsey Hill.  Los Angeles prosecutors said in February there was insufficient evidence to prove the woman's accusations beyond a reasonable doubt. The pitcher will be suspended for 342 games, starting Friday, for violating the MLB's domestic violence policy.  This is a developing story.  Trevor Bauer steps out of the courthouse after the last day of the hearings in August 2021. During those hearings, a restraining order imposed upon Bauer against Lindsey Hill was lifted Bauer says that Hill concocted her a story about non-consensual sex alongside her lawyer Fred Thiagarajah. Thiagarajah told The Washington Post in February 2022 that his client had been 'brutalized' by Bauer The attorney for Bauer's alleged victim, Bryan Freedman, asked TMZ Sports to publish an unredacted photograph showing his client's alleged injuries saying the damage could NOT possibly be part...
    As the state looks at a historic multibillion-dollar surplus for fiscal year 2022, they have an incredible opportunity to make a substantial impact on the lives of our residents. However, I am concerned that the state continues to consider proposals that would whittle away at much of the funding we rely on to complete critical infrastructure upgrades. I support the removal of the grocery tax. I also support the intent behind the governor’s proposal of a three-month suspension of the gas tax as, across the United States, we see residents under immense financial strain. None of us feel good about paying astronomical gas prices at the pump, and some simply cannot afford to fill their tanks. However, a suspension of the gas tax will not provide the relief needed. In fact, most economists agree gas prices are set by supply and demand market forces — certainly not because of a gas tax. Cutting the gas tax offers no guarantee that it will put more money in the people’s pockets at all. Ultimately,… Read the full story from the Washington Business...
    With more than 750 employees choosing to ignore San Jose’s new mandate requiring them to get a booster shot, city leaders have decided to water down the policy. Instead of facing up to a week of unpaid leave, officials announced Wednesday that holdouts will only be subject to a 1-day suspension equivalent to the number of hours an employee typically works in a day. City leaders also no longer intend to impose more aggressive discipline against employees, such as longer unpaid suspensions or termination, for failing to take steps to come into compliance with the order. However, they left it open to be revisited in the event of substantial changes to the COVID-19 pandemic or if more boosters become available and are considered necessary. The announcement comes three days after the deadline for compliance expired. Last month, the city pushed back an earlier set deadline by two weeks to Feb. 25 to provide employees with more time to get an additional shot. In an email to the city’s workforce on Wednesday afternoon, San Jose’s Office of Employee Relations said it...
    THE suspension of specific notices by the Internal Revenue Service could stir trouble for taxpayers, who may well end up owing money without them knowing. This year's tax season has got off to a rocky start, troubled with backlogs of tax returns from last year. 1The temporary suspension of specific notices by the IRS could stir trouble for taxpayersCredit: Getty The Covid-19 pandemic caused major staffing issues at the IRS, creating an unprecedented number of unprocessed tax returns and payments. As of December 4, 2021, the government agency had 6.7million unprocessed individual returns. Due to the backlog, the IRS began sending taxpayers some automated letters that were inaccurate. In response, the IRS announced the suspension of mailing out specific notices, mainly letters warning taxpayers of unfiled tax returns or overdue tax payments. The complete halt of the letters could mean those who owe money or are required to file a previous year's tax return may end up unaware of their situation, resulting in interest and penalties piling up. related tax refund storiesTAX GRAB THE penalty for not filing a federal income tax return with the...
    Whoopi Goldberg's co-host Sara Haines is slamming fans who think suspending the star for two weeks wasn't enough.  Haines, 44, posted an endearing throwback photo to Instagram showing her and Goldberg, 66, smiling on The View set as they snapped a selfie, saying the memory 'warmed my heart,' despite the ongoing controversy.  'This just popped up and warmed my heart. That’s my Whoops!!!!' she captioned the shot on Friday.   While many fans said commented that they missed the controversial host on the show, some called out Whoopi's suspension as being disappointing and slammed the two stars for it. But Haines wasn't having it, as she responded on her own post: 'I'd like to invite people trolling the post to go play somewhere else.  'To learn from a moment is all we can ask of anyone. And prioritizing punitive measures at the expense of the message/issue (and teaching moment) are misguided.'  Goldberg was suspended from the show for two weeks following her insensitive comments stating that the 'Holocaust is not about race' because it involved 'two groups of white people.' The star, who...
    TAMPA BAY (CBS) – Could Antonio Brown’s time in Tampa be over after he was suspended three games for giving the team a fake COVID vaccination card? According to a new report, it seems to be at least a possibility. The NFL announced this week that Brown, who was briefly a member of the Patriots during Tom Brady’s final season in New England, would be suspended along with Bucs safety Mike Edwards and free agent John Franklin III. READ MORE: Woman Killed By Comfort Animal At Cultivate Care Farms In BoltonHead coach Bruce Arians expressed his displeasure with the players’ actions. He said he would not address the players’ status on the team until after their suspensions are over. In the case of Brown, when the wide receiver signed in Tampa Bay last year, Arians told reporters “He screws up one time, he’s gone.” So the question now becomes whether this could be the final straw.

    A professor at the University of California Los Angeles filed suit against the school system for allegedly placing him on leave and threatening to fire him for not grading black students more leniently in the wake of the murder of George Floyd . "Recently, I was suspended from my job for refusing to treat my black students as lesser than their non-black peers," Gordon Klein, the professor behind the suit, said in an op-ed . Eight days after Floyd, a black man, died in Minneapolis following a May 2020 arrest (for which a now-former police officer has been convicted of murder ), a white student emailed Klein asking for a "no harm" final for black students given the racially charged "unjust murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd," according to Klein.

    Tom Brady’s return to New England will surely be a massive lovefest, at least up until the moment he lines up under center Sunday night for Tampa Bay. With good reason, because there’s a lot to celebrate for the greatest quarterback of his time and the legacy he somehow keeps writing at the age of 44. Everyone knows about the six Super Bowl rings for the Patriots and the late-game comebacks so numerous they’re hard to count. Brady also won 219 regular-season games for New England and was 30-10 overall in the playoffs, with 73 touchdown passes. Along the way, he and coach Bill Belichick transformed the Patriots into a juggernaut the likes of which the NFL has never seen. Brady’s numbers are so impressive that he’ll be a first ballot Hall of Famer, assuming, of course, he ever decides to retire. But while he gets well-deserved accolades for 20 seasons of spectacular work in New England, let’s not forget some other numbers. At least five footballs softened by taking some air out of them in the 2015 AFC...
    Greek healthcare staff have until September 1st to be fully vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus or face indefinite suspension from their jobs. Wuhan virus vaccines are mandatory for all healthcare workers in the National Health System as well as staff working in care homes, and they have until August 16th to get their first shot of the vaccine and until September 1st to be fully vaccinated. According to a report from the Greek newspaper I Kathimerini, 88 per cent of doctors in the Greek health service had been fully vaccinated while 74 per cent of nursing staff and 72 per cent of general hospital staff were also vaccinated. Around 10,000 healthcare workers are believed to still be unvaccinated.

    Updated 07/25/2021 – 10:43 Barely two days of competition have been played at the Ariake tennis center in Tokyo and the racket professionals have already They have openly complained that they play in a kind of sauna due to the high temperatures and the percentage of humidity present in the Japanese capital. The International Tennis Federation has taken action on the matter and is applying the extreme heat policy that is already used in two ‘Grand Slam’ such as the Australian Open and the United States Open. That means that tennis players they have a 10-minute break between the second and third sets. Similarly they have 30 seconds more in the breaks. The organization also warns of the possibility of the suspension of matches if the scale they use exceeds 30.1 degrees Celsius.
    Marjorie Taylor Greene broke her 12-hour Twitter suspension on Tuesday by comparing the social media giant to the Chinese Communist Party, claiming they are stifling free speech. 'American social media company Twitter banned me for 12 hrs, censoring me, & violating my freedom of speech,' the Georgia representative posted. 'You know who else silences, censors, and bans people they don't like and want heard. Communist China,' she continued, along with an emoji of the Chinese flag. 'Communism is not good @Twitter,' Greene wrote. 'Save America Stop Communism!' The pro-Trump congresswoman was suspended on Monday after she posted a tweet claiming coronavirus is not 'dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65.'

After testing positive for THC, the chemical found in marijuana, Richardson was given a one-month suspension, which disqualified her from participating in individual Olympic events. There was still some hope that she'd be picked for the relay, though, as it is set to take place after her suspension ends.

    TC Energy wants Biden administration to pay it $15 billion for blocking the Keystone XL pipeline The Downsides of Retirement That Nobody Talks About American sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson is focusing on the future after an incredibly tough few days. The US Anti-Doping Agency announced on Friday that Richardson had accepted a one-month suspension for testing positive for marijuana, a drug that's decriminalized in most US states. The suspension means that she will be barred from running her signature event, the 100-meter dash, at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.  Richardson apologized for her positive test on Friday, taking full responsibility for breaking the rules, and also tweeted "I am human," which garnered wide support from fans.

The 27-year-old has been granted plenty of opportunities to live up to his freakishly athletic potential, but he can't ever stick the landing. The former Dallas Cowboys pass rusher signed on with the Las Vegas Raiders in October 2020, after having been reinstated from an indefinite suspension, but couldn't carve his way onto the field for more than 40 defensive snaps and delivered zero sacks.

    Twitter will not reinstate former President Donald Trump. The decision was made independent of Facebook's Oversight Board, which announced on Wednesday that he will remain suspended. There have been “no changes” regarding Trump's permanent suspension, Twitter CFO Ned Segal said Tuesday. Facebook’s Oversight Board announced on Wednesday that the former president will not be allowed back on the platform. FATE OF TRUMP FACEBOOK ACCOUNT TO BE DETERMINED WEDNESDAY: WHAT TO KNOW “Well, there has been no changes to anything we have shared in the past around the former president’s account,” Segal said. “When you step back and think about our policies, we want to work hard to be consistent, to be transparent so people know exactly what to expect from us,” he added. “We don’t have an oversight board like that. Our team is accountable for the decisions that we make.” Trump was suspended from both platforms following the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, the day some of his supporters sought to prevent Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's election victory. While the Oversight Board upheld Facebook’s decision to restrict...
    The NHL was slammed on Tuesday after announcing that Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson was fined $5,000 for a post-whistle scrum during Monday night’s game against the New York Rangers that saw him punch Pavel Buchnevich in the back of the head.  The NHL Department of Player Safety said that Wilson would be fined the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement for the second-period incident.  CAPITALS’ TOM WILSON GETS IN-PERSON HEARING AFTER HIT ON BRUINS ‘  BRANDON CARLO SENDS HIM TO THE HOSPITAL  He was not disciplined for throwing Rangers star Artemi Panarin to the ground and punching him just moments later.

    Ryan Tepera was suspended three games, while David Ross received a one-game ban, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy Brewers manager Craig Counsell. Major League Baseball took a step towards making a statement against the unwritten rules of the game on Thursday with their punishment of both Tepera and Ross. Tepera, the pitcher who threw behind opposing hurler Brandon Woodruff, called the league “soft” as a result. Ross was also unhappy, but as the team’s manager and unquestioned leader, was bound to receive some sort of suspension. Despite MLB’s unprecedented decision to punish Tepera and Ross despite the fact Woodruff wasn’t actually hit by a pitch, Counsell thinks it wasn’t enough. “Nothing has changed in their (the league) policy. I don’t think what they’re doing is any deterrent at all,” Counsell said, per ESPN’s Jesse Rogers.Brewers manager Craig Counsell isn’t necessarily wrongMLB was between a rock and a hard place.

    The Biden administration said the pause in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine rollout will not impact their vaccine goals.  Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator, downplayed the pause in the vaccine distribution, saying it was being done 'out of an abundance of caution.' He said the Johnson & Johnson does not make up enough of the U.S. supply to affect the administration's goals of getting a shot in the arm of 200 million Americans by President Joe Biden's 100th day in office on April 30th and to have enough shots for every adult American by the end of May. 'This announcement will not have a significant impact on our vaccination plan: Johnson & Johnson vaccine makes up less than 5 percent of the recorded shots in arms in the United States to date,' he said in a statement released by the White House. He noted the U.S. has enough supply of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to meet their goal. Those vaccines require two shots unlike Johnson & Johnson's single dose.

    US President Joe Biden has reportedly agreed to lower the income level caps for the third round of stimulus payments.BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI | AFP | Getty Images LONDON — The U.S. and the European Union might have reached a trade truce, but some analysts have doubts over whether the two sides will be able to agree on other contentious issues such as digital taxation and relations with China. U.S. President Joe Biden and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced on Friday a suspension in tariffs imposed during the Trump presidency over aircraft subsidies. The dispute first emerged in 2004 and the World Trade Organization ruled in 2019 and in 2020 that the U.S. and the EU had granted illegal support to Boeing and Airbus respectively. The $7.5 billion tariffs on EU products and $4 billion duties on U.S. goods are now on hold for four months as both sides look to draw up a deal that will include a permanent solution over support for the aircraft sector. European officials have said the announcement marks a "reset" in transatlantic relations...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the White House's delay in its decision to temporarily suspend without pay a communications official who reportedly threatened a reporter. During a press briefing on Friday, Psaki acknowledged that the White House waited to suspend TJ Ducklo until after an article revealed the conversation between him and Tara Palmeri, the Politico reporter and Playbook coauthor Ducklo allegedly threatened. Psaki said the matter was originally discussed with Politico privately. "There were conversations that occurred with the reporter, as well as editors at Politico, immediately after the conversation occurred," she said. "That was how we engaged in a private manner, and that was what we felt was appropriate at the time." When asked whether President Biden was involved in the matter, Psaki responded, "No, I have not discussed it with the president. It was a decision I made with the approval of the chief of staff." Vanity Fair reported on Friday that on Inauguration Day, Palmeri contacted Axios political reporter Alexi McCammond to ask for comment about her reported relationship with Ducklo while...
    QAnon-supporting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was back on Twitter Monday after having her account suspended when she called on Americans to 'mobilize' – and promptly began using the account to attack Twitter. 'Contrary to how highly you think of yourself and your moral platitude, you are not the judge of humanity. God is,' she wrote Monday morning, in one of several missives blasting the platform for suspending her account. 'And you and the rest of your pals from the Silicon Valley Cartel are not God,' she scolded them. Greene has been suspended from her Twitter account for 12 hours, her staff announced Sunday, after she tweeted and deleted a tweet calling for Americans to 'mobilize and make your voices heard'. She had also used the cite's platform to repeatedly launch unfounded charges that the elections were rigged, including going after Georgia election officials who certified the state's vote for Democrat Joe Biden. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted an attack on Twitter following the 12-hour suspension of her account. She wrote in highly personal terms: 'Contrary to how highly you think of...

    Jeremy Corbyn acknowledged that concerns about anti-Semitism in Labor were “not exaggerated” within weeks of his suspension, saying they were “dramatically exaggerated”. The former Labor leader withdrew the whip and was suspended from the party in his response to a gross egalitarian and human rights commission that found it violating party law in handling anti-Semitic complaints. Mr Corbyn revealed that he had issued a statement to Labor in an attempt to “remove any confusion” in connection with a broadcast interview that followed his initial response and statement. This comes as it has been suggested that Labor’s NEC Dispute Committee may meet to review Mr Corbyn’s suspension. The panel is scheduled to meet this afternoon, but it has not been confirmed whether Mr Corbyn’s case will be considered by them. Mr Corbyn’s allies are agitating for his suspension to be replaced by a left-wing drive. Although the former leader called it “one anti-Semitism”, “the scale of the issue was dramatically exaggerated for political reasons both inside and outside the party, and by most of the media.”Mr Stormer insists his party...
    The RFEF has opened a file against Móstoles, of the Madrid Third Division, for playing with players who should save forty after a positive. The match against Villaverde de San Andrés began this morning at the El Soto stadium, but was suspended at half-time when the result was 1-0. The local club alleged the following in a statement hours later: “Before starting the game, the Móstoles CF Protocol Compliance Delegate, communicated this situation to the party’s referee, who was not aware of any postponement of the game and proceeded to dispute it.” Móstoles CF holds the RFFM or RFEF responsible for the situation: “Any type of responsibility derived from the suspension of the meeting is attributable to the Royal Football Federation of Madrid or the Royal Spanish Football Federation, in any case, Móstoles CF has acted in good faith and scrupulously complying with the protocol of action for the return of official competitions at the state level and non-professional of the RFEF “.

    Chad Wolf was 'not lawfully serving' as acting Homeland Security Secretary when he approved limitations on DACA applications and renewals, meaning those orders are invalid.  The ruling came from a federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis in the Eastern District of New York on Saturday - five months after Wolf signed a controversial memo in July.  That month, Wolf released a memo saying new applications for DACA, a federal program that allowed some undocumented juveniles to avoid deportation, would not be accepted and renewals would be limited to one year pending a review. The Supreme Court in June blocked the Trump administration's attempt to outright end the program, and the July memo hoped to stall operations while the White House considered its next actions. A federal judge in New York CIty ruled that Chad Wolf (pictured) was 'not lawfully serving' as acting Homeland Security Secretary when he issued the Wolf Memorandum 'Wolf was not lawfully serving as Acting Secretary of Homeland Security under the HSA [Homeland Security Act] when he issued the Wolf Memorandum,' wrote Judge Garaufis, per Law and Crime.

    PALO ALTO - Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg told an all-staff meeting Thursday that former Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon had not violated enough of the company's policies to justify his suspension, according to a recording heard by Reuters.   "We have specific rules around how many times you need to violate certain policies before we will deactivate your account completely," Zuckerberg said. "While the offenses here, I think, came close to crossing that line, they clearly did not cross the line."   Bannon suggested in a video last week that FBI Director Christopher Wray and government infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci should be beheaded, saying they had been disloyal to U.S. President Donald Trump, who last week lost his re-election bid.   Facebook removed the video but left up Bannon's page.

    Mark Zuckerberg reportedly told his employees that Steve Bannon, a former adviser to the president, has not "crossed the line" to be totally suspended from the platform. "We have specific rules around how many times you need to violate certain policies before we will deactivate your account completely,” he said, Reuters reported, citing audio from a staff call on Thursday. "While the offenses here, I think, came close to crossing that line, they clearly did not cross the line." Bannon suggested that Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, should be beheaded. "I’d actually like to go back to the old times of Tudor England," Bannon said on Nov. 5. "I’d put the heads on pikes, right? I’d put them at the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal bureaucrats: You either get with the program, or you’re gone." The video was removed from Facebook. Twitter permanently suspended Bannon from his platform. Andy Stone, Facebook's policy communications director,...

A spokesman says eight students are on interim persona non grata status, which isn’t a suspension. The students can still take classes online. When asked if the students need to move or find alternative off-campus housing if they currently live on campus, a university spokesman said he can’t discuss details of open conduct cases.

    Marcus Stroman, #0, New York Mets, (Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images) New York Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman is angry with Joe Kelly’s eight-game suspension Major League Baseball dropped a bomb of news on Wednesday when it was announced Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly had been suspended eight games for his role in the benches-clearing melee that took place on Tuesday night. In a shortened 60-game season, being suspended for eight contests is the equivalent of being handed a 22-game suspension in a normal campaign. As you might understand, Dodgers fans were furious once they saw the news. They weren’t the only ones, though. Multiple MLB players have voiced their displeasure with the league’s decision. This includes star New York Mets hurler Marcus Stroman, who took to Twitter to let everyone know how upset he is with the decision. Makes zero sense Ken. He wasn’t even thrown out of the game. MLB siding with/protecting a team that openly and knowingly cheated their way to a World Series. He doesn’t deserve to be suspended at all. Hoping he wins his appeal....
    US coronavirus: Nation could see deaths in the multiple hundreds of thousands, group says 5 CDC Safety Guidelines That Way Too Many Restaurants Are Ignoring Marcus Stroman, Mike Clevinger not happy with Joe Kelly suspension Joe Kelly’s suspension for throwing at Houston Astros players has once again sparked a debate over whether the punishment fit the crime. © Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports MLB gave Joe Kelly an eight-game suspension for Tuesday's incident versus the Astros. MLB was widely criticized for not suspending any Astros players for their roles in the team’s 2017 sign-stealing scandal, with many feeling that the players who both created and benefited from the program completely got away with it while manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow took the fall for them. Those feelings once again came to the forefront Wednesday, when MLB suspended Kelly for eight games for throwing near the heads of both Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa. As was noted by many, Kelly received a harsher punishment for throwing at Astros players than any Houston player did for stealing signs. Leading...
    By LARRY NEUMEISTER, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo acted constitutionally by temporarily banning evictions because of the coronavirus, a judge ruled Monday. U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon said in a written decision that the eviction moratorium issued in a series of order beginning in March does not violate the First Amendment rights of three large landlords who sued the state. “At bottom, provisions ensure that landlords will be made whole while their tenants are facing extraordinary financial hardships," McMahon said. The judge noted that Cuomo's order, which blocks evictions until Aug. 19, occurred as the United States suffered more than any other country in a world confronting the deadliest pandemic in over a century. Cuomo, a Democrat, issued orders blocking evictions for three months and allowed tenants to use security deposits toward rent. McMahon, the court's chief judge, acknowledged that New York state's eviction process was “a slow, cumbersome and extremely tenant-favorable process." But she said there was nothing permanent about the order and it preserves the right of landlords to evict or sue...

    GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) — A visitor attempting to slide across a suspension bridge that hangs 140 feet (43 meters) over a valley in Tennessee cracked a glass panel in the structure’s middle section, according to park officials. The pedestrian bridge located near the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg was temporarily closed for repairs Monday after the action left “noticeable cracks” in the top layer of a 5-foot-wide (1.5-meter-wide) piece of glass, officials with SkyLift Park said in a statement. The guest was attempting a “baseball-style slide” when they chipped the panel with a metal object on their clothes, despite posted rules that ask visitors not to run, jump or bounce on the attraction as a safety precaution, representatives said. Officials added that the glass has multiple layers of protection and neither the structural integrity of the bridge, or any guests were ever in danger. The attraction spans nearly 700-feet (213-meters) across the valley in eastern Tennessee, and is the longest of its kind in North America, according to the park’s website. The attraction was set to reopen Tuesday. Copyright © 2020 The...
    MONACO (AP) — Women’s 400-meter world champion Salwa Eid Naser was provisionally suspended Friday for not making herself available for doping tests. The Athletics Integrity Unit said it has charged the sprinter from Bahrain with whereabouts violations. Naser could miss next year’s Olympics if the case is proven. Naser won the world title in October, finishing in 48.14 seconds — the fastest time by any woman since 1985. Athletes are required to provide regular updates on their whereabouts to make it possible for anti-doping authorities to carry out surprise testing outside of competition. A violation means an athlete either did not fill out forms telling authorities where they could be found, or that they weren’t where they said they would be when testers arrived. Three violations within 12 months can lead to a suspension if the athlete can’t justify why they weren’t available for testing. The provisional suspension is the latest in a series of cases against Bahrain’s elite squad of female runners. Olympic steeplechase champion Ruth Jebet was banned four years in March for EPO, and Olympic marathon runner-up...
