    PITTSBURGH — Down 20-17 with 3:34 left in the fourth quarter, Jets quarterback Zach Wilson had a simple but straight-to-the-point statement for his team in the huddle as the drive started. “Let’s score a f’ing touchdown,” Jets running back Breece Hall said after the game. “So that was our whole mentality. “We weren’t really flustered or nervous. We just felt like we have to take one play at a time and we did that.” The Jets certainly did that as Wilson and the Jets were once again the best when the chips were down and the stakes were high in the fourth quarter. Wilson completed only 8 of 24 passes for 124 yards and two interceptions during the first three quarters. In his first game back seven weeks after suffering a bone bruise and a meniscus tear, the second-year quarterback completed 10 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown during the game’s final 15 minutes. After being down 20-10 midway through the fourth quarter, Wilson led the Jets 91 yards, ending with a five-yard touchdown pass to receiver...
    EMMA Raducanu's injury-hit year continued after she was forced to retire from her Korea Open semi-final. The teenager had enjoyed a return to form after winning three straight matches for the first time since winning the US Open 12 months ago. 2Raducanu was hoping to reach just her second WTA finalCredit: AFP But she was forced to withdraw for the fourth time in 2022 against Jelena Ostapenko and missed out on reaching just her second WTA final. Raducanu had recovered from a break down to win the first set 6-4. But Ostapenko, the top seed in Seoul, hit back to claim the second 6-3, although only after the Brit had received a medical time out. Raducanu powered through, but after the former French Open champion raced into a 3-0 lead in the final set, the 19-year-old retired. 2Raducanu has struggled with injuries since her US Open triumph in 2021Credit: AFP Midway through the second set, Raducanu took an off-court medical timeout to get treatment for a left glute injury.

    The Queen's final heartbreak before her death age 96 last week was the news that her beloved dorgi Candy had died after 18 years of being by her side. Known for her immense love for corgis, the loss of her oldest and longest-surviving dog hit the late Queen hard and was said to be 'distraught' about it. Which makes it all the more surprising that Her Majesty found her final days in Balmoral so consoling, as Candy's death came soon after her arrival in the Scottish Highlands earlier in the summer. The loss of the dachshund-corgi cross breed was a huge blow to the Queen as Candy had been at her side since 2004, making her more than 18 — a remarkable age for a dorgi. Poignantly the dog had the same name as a much-loved yellow Labrador of Prince Philip. She was one of the Queen's four dorgis (Cider, Berry and Vulcan being the others) but outlived them all. The Queen's final heartbreak before her death age 96 last week was the news that her beloved dorgi Candy (pictured together...

    LOS ANGELES — The Giants may be out of the playoff hunt, but with a month of the season to go, manager Gabe Kapler is taking the opportunity to remind his players that the remaining games matter, nonetheless. “Every individual has something on the line and at stake,” Kapler said. “I think there’s a way to finish strong for us that will create a really good springboard for ‘23 and I think we’re all focused and taking that seriously.” As a team, the Giants’ goals in September should include fending off Arizona for third place in the NL West and finishing the season at or above .500. They would need to go 17-13 over their final 30 games, starting Monday night at Dodger Stadium, to reach 81 wins. For individual players, it might be money, playing time, personal accolades or some combination of the three. Joey Bart: Set to return Tuesday from a concussion, Bart will spend the final month of the season cementing the changes that have led to his turnaround at the plate. Since returning July 6 from...
    A filming driver has captured the moment two shoppers held their ground in a battle for a shopping center parking spot.

    This woman was enjoying a hot summer day when she saw a small bee flailing around on the ground. She immediately knew that she needed to help him, or he would either get eaten alive or die from heat exhaustion. She gave him a sugar solution and tried to feed him using a q-tip, but the little guy didn’t seem to be doing well. Source: GeoBeats Animals/Youtube Many days passed with no sign of life, but this woman was determined not to give up on the bee. After many days of trying to nurture him back to life, one miraculous day, the bee finally perked up and started waving his legs around. She knew at that moment her perseverance was worth it! She brought him outside to get some fresh air, and as soon as the sun hit him, he came alive and started to buzz and return to the back of the house where his colony was located. “In such a short amount of time, such a strong bond was formed between two completely different species.

    HERE’S a little pre-season quiz question for you. During the past five years, what is the closest any London club has come to winning the Premier League? 3Arsenal have had a brilliant pre-season but don't expect that to continue in the Premier LeagueCredit: Rex 3Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been far from impressed with his side's pre-season showingsCredit: Getty The answer is NINETEEN points — the distance between Chelsea and champions Manchester City in both of the past two seasons. That’s a difference of more than six victories over a 38-game campaign and it’s the best any London team has managed since 2017. So when Jurgen Klopp insisted, after Liverpool’s Community Shield victory over City, that we will not witness another two-horse race for the title — and referenced Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal as genuine contenders — you had to chuckle. Antonio Conte’s Chelsea beat Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs to the title in 2016-17 but since then, there hasn’t been a sniff of a challenge from the capital.

    Tears started to fill Willson Contreras’ red-rimmed eyes. For months the Chicago Cubs All-Star catcher had kept thoughts about his future at bay. Free agency, the trade deadline, all the uncertainties after 13 years with the only big-league organization he has known — those were things to worry about later. He had maintained since spring training that he was focused on the present and taking things day-by-day, refusing to let his contract situation affect his performance or become a distraction in the clubhouse. Nothing seemed to faze Contreras until Monday night. Loud cheers and a chant of “Willson!” down the left-field line greeted Contreras as he stepped into the batter’s box for his final at-bat in the eighth inning of the Cubs’ 3-2 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates. His night ended securing the strikeout for reliever Scott Effross’ first save. For a moment, as Contreras congratulated Effross near the mound and they went through the post-win handshake line, it felt like a typical win. “Go Cubs Go” blared for 37,342 fans celebrating the Cubs’ season-high fifth-straight victory. But with a...
    China has launched the second of three modules that, together with the main body, make up its highly-ambitious 'Tiangong' space station. The new module, called Wentian, was launched on a Long March 5B rocket at 14:22 (06:22 GMT) on Sunday from Wenchang Space Launch Center on the island of Hainan, China. Wentian, a research lab dedicated to science and biology experiments, has already docked with the main body of the space station, called Tianhe.  It's set to be followed by a second research lab module, Mengtian, due to be launched in October this year.  When Mengtian attaches to the rest of Tiangong, the space station's construction will finally be complete, although Beijing also plans to launch Xuntian, a space telescope that would co-orbit with the space station, in 2024. Tiangong (meaning 'heavenly palace') will rival the ageing International Space Station (ISS), which is operated by the space agencies of the US, Canada, Russia, Japan and Europe. It will comprise three modules, although another two spacecraft – Shenzhou and Tianzhou – which transport crew and cargo respectively, can also dock at the station. ...
    THE most horrific penalty of all time had fans accusing players of match fixing during the recent Ogun State FA Cup final in Nigeria. Remo Stars took on Ijebu United, with the match going to a shoot-out after a 0-0 draw. 2One spot kick was whacked in the wrong directionCredit: Twitter @IbkSports 2Another saw the goalkeeper stand completely motionless as the ball hit the netCredit: Twitter @IbkSports A bizarre sequence during the spot kicks subsequently went viral, with fans crying foul play.

    SOMETHING big is about to happen in English football.  England’s women open the Euros, here on home soil, against Austria at a sold-out Old Trafford on Wednesday.  1England have never been champions, but that could be about to changeCredit: Getty Twenty-five days later, the final will be at Wembley, and you would not bet against England being there to win it. They are unbeaten under their Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman, winning a dozen of her 14 games in charge.  In the three warm-ups, they were patient in getting past Belgium; occasionally frightening going up through the gears to beat reigning champions the Netherlands; and the Swiss were eventually beaten at a canter on Thursday evening.

    The Final Solution was developed after Heinrich Himmler witnessed the horror of the Babi Yar massacre of more than 33,000 Jews and decided 'there has got to be another way of doing this', historian James Holland said. Babi Yar, a ravine on the edge of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, became infamous after 33,771 men, women and children were shot there over the course of just two days in September 1941. At that point, the Nazis were three months into Operation Barbarossa – their ultimately doomed attempt to invade and conquer the Soviet Union. Only ten of the estimated 700 people that took part in the killings at Babi Yar were ever convicted of a crime. Speaking to MailOnline at the Chalke Valley History Festival, which is sponsored by the Daily Mail, Mr Holland said the path to the Final Solution – the name given by the Nazis to the murder of nearly six million Jews in a network of death camps from 1942 – began at Babi Yar. Nazi troops carried out the massacre in Ukraine after branding the local...

    Washington (CNN)New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew said the "final sign" for him to switch parties was being told that he had to vote in support of impeachment of President Donald Trump. In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Van Drew -- who was struggling in New Jersey politics as a Democrat -- recalled how he was told by a New Jersey Democratic county party chair that he would not be successful in winning reelection if he votes "no" on impeachment. "One of the county chairman came to me and said, 'I have to speak with you.' And I said, 'sure' and sat down. He said, 'I just want to let you know that you have to vote for impeachment.'

    (CBS4) — Since Joe Sakic acquired Josh Manson at the trade deadline, the defenseman has become a staple on the Colorado Avalanche. He’s been a key piece in the team’s quest for the Stanley Cup, playing in all 14 playoff games, and among other things, scoring the thrilling overtime winner in the Game 1 win over the St. Louis Blues in the second round.

I never had a passion for it as a young kid growing up.” In his teens, Manson wanted to quit hockey and focus on snowboarding. “When I was snowboarding, I just got so caught up in it, and I told my mom,...

    Karen Chen and Vincent Zhou have been on the road for months, first for the normal figure skating season, then the Olympics and now for the Stars on Ice tour. But as the tour winds down, the figure skaters from the Bay Area will get put on a show in front of family and friends at San Jose’s SAP Center on Sunday afternoon. “I’m super excited,” Chen said. “I definitely invited a lot of people to come and it’ll definitely be special.” Chen and Zhou were two of the six skaters who helped the United States win the silver medal in team skating at the Beijing Winter Olympics in February, and they grew up skating in the Bay Area.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jack and Rebecca. Randall, Kate and Kevin. Six seasons and a combined 23 actors playing the Pearson mom, dad and children over four jumbled decades of love, war and a fatefully malfunctioning slow cooker. Add to that the countless tears shed by devoted fans of “This Is Us” and the oft-cited box of tissues as a standard accessory. It all comes down to one last good cry as NBC’s time-traveling family drama airs its final episode at 9 p.m. EDT Tuesday. Creator Dan Fogelman, who’d planned the show’s finite run from the start, is comfortable with his decision to leave viewers wanting more —- unusual for TV, which has no qualms in milking a popular series for all it’s worth and then some. “If we had done anything different, it would have happened because of the wrong reasons,” Fogelman said. “A lot of them are lovely reasons, because I enjoy these people so much that I work with, because the show is lucrative, because it’s so successful. But creatively, I feel we’ve done the right...

    Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Anthony Edwards called out Chris Paul III and the Phoenix Suns for a disgraceful performance in Game 7.  Last week, the Memphis Grizzlies reminded the Golden State Warriors that no game should be taken for granted — and trash-talking on the court can always come back with a bite. The Grizzlies shamed Golden State by blaring “Whoop That Trick,” while Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler asked the Philadelphia 76ers once again: Tobias Harris over him? This time, it was the Phoenix Suns who faced the consequences of past taunts, with Minnesota Timberwolves shooter Anthony Edwards recalling their confidence earlier in the season. “I remember when we were playing Phoenix, they were talking so much s***, telling us we need to make the playoffs, we ain’t gonna make the playoffs” Edwards said. “We’re out of the playoffs, but y’all… this is a disgrace, bruh. Like y’all got 30 points in the third quarter, this is terrible.” At the time of Edwards’ recording, the score was 75-36 with 5:40 left in the third quarter. The Suns still...
    (CBS4) – Both Colorado lawmakers and taxpayers got some good news in the final hours of the legislative session. The sponsors of a bill to provide early refunds under the Taxpayer Bill of Rights say the state will generate even more tax revenue than expected. That means taxpayers will get at least $500 instead of $400 this summer and couples will get at least $1,000. That bill was among more than 150 still making its way through the legislature as the session draws to a close, and the final days aren’t complete without a little drama. Republicans deployed stall tactics on Monday aimed at forcing amendments to bills they oppose. The House didn’t adjourn until after 6am and then reconvened at 11am. Among the final bills to get approval were several major funding measures including $150 million to increase the state’s housing stock, $50 million to make childcare more affordable, and $10 million to improve access to rural health care. Lawmakers also approved more funding to recruit and retain police officers and decrease air pollution along with $600 million to...

    (CNN)"Game of Thrones" fans are fed up. This final season was supposed to be a climax of brilliant storytelling, a time when all the pieces in this sprawling, intricate Westeros puzzle finally snapped into place.Instead, fans are grumbling on social media about rushed storylines, unexplained loose ends and beloved characters doing things that don't feel true to their nature.Last week's 80-minute episode took a sudden, dark turn by making longtime heroine Daenerys Targaryen a mad war monster who used her lone surviving dragon to waste hundreds of thousands of innocent lives.With one episode left before the series ends, that's a lot for fans to take in. More than a million of them have signed a Change.org petition urging HBO to re-make the final season. (HBO is owned by WarnerMedia, CNN's parent company.)"David Benioff and D.B.
