    Getty Matthew Stafford unleashes his throw on September 18, 2022. There was this sight on seven occasions when the Los Angeles Rams returned to the field to start the 2022 season: Matthew Stafford getting tussled to the ground on sacks. Five Buffalo Bills defenders, seven sacks piled at the SoFi Stadium grass, and a 31-10 defeat to start the year. But this time on Sunday, September 18, the Rams sliced the number of sacks to just one — allowing Stafford to pick apart the Atlanta Falcons with 272 yards and three touchdowns, culminating in the 31-27 win to improve to 1-1. How did one Rams captain react to the improved play of this struggling unit that not only dealt with blown blocking assignments, but has been stung by injuries early in the season? $34.5 Million Leader Reacts to Improved Performance Appearing as one of four veteran Rams players at the “L.A. Rams Night of Wishes” event on Monday, September 18 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, California, newly extended right tackle Rob Havenstein was...
    Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Va. (CNN)The military horses that carry America's heroes to their final resting place in Arlington National Cemetery are living in unsanitary and potentially life-threatening conditions, according to a US Army report reviewed exclusively by CNN, consuming poor-quality feed, suffering from parasites and standing in their own excrement in tiny mud lots scattered with gravel and construction waste. Two military working horses died unexpectedly within 96 hours of each other in February --  one of whom perished from what equine veterinarians say could have been preventable intestinal compaction that was caused by 44 pounds of gravel and sand found in his gut. The February report, compiled by the US Army's Public Health Command-Atlantic, found a host of systemic problems with the living conditions of the horses in the 3rd Infantry Regiment, also called the Old Guard, best known for guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The regimental commander's office requested the Army Public Health inspection after the two deaths, according to the report. The primary issues are a woeful lack of space, inadequate funding for improvements...
    Newly surfaced video shows how a 'fight night' unfolded within an empty cell in Rikers Island as guards in the sparsely-staffed unit refuse to step in, with a judge eventually releasing a man who was attacked because the jail failed to protect him. The October 19 altercation in cell 15 at the George R. Vierno Center, an 850-bed jail on Rikers in New York City, was caught on surveillance video and published by The New York Times. Inmates crowd around a cell as Bacalao, a leader from the Dominican gang Trinitarios, orders different men to fight each other. Other videos from the jail show inmates holding makeshift weapons and throwing things at a detainee hiding behind a corrections officer - just a sliver of the chaos that has gripped New York's largest pre-trial jail as the COVID-19 pandemic worsens staffing shortages. One of the men who was ordered to fight is a former member of the Crips gang identified in court records as Relator G.  He was released last month, with a judge commenting that the Department of Correction's inability...
    "We have people in city council who can create problems for him," Newsome threatened. "We have people in the streets who can create problems for this administration by shutting it down." On Thursday, Adams fired back at Newsome for his dangerous rhetoric. "We’re not going to surrender to those who are saying, 'We’re going to burn down New York.' Not my city," Adams said at a Police Athletic League event at the Harvard Club. Newsome continued this battle with the incoming mayor during an appearance on "The Story" on Friday. Newsome argued with Fox News host Martha MacCallum about Adams reinstituting the plainclothes police unit. "The mayor[-elect] is engaging in a political circus. And my parents didn’t raise a clown," Newsome said of Adams. "So, I’m not here to play these circus-type political games with him." Last month, Adams met with Newsome and members of the Black Lives Matter of Greater New York organization – a self-described group demanding "criminal justice reform, basic public safety, fair and equal access to education, jobs & infrastructure." However, the meeting ended...
    Black Lives Matter of Greater New York leader Walter "Hawk" Newsome defended his criticisms of New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams on "The Story" after the retired police captain announced he would be reinstating a plainclothes NYPD division. Adams said earlier this week he will not "surrender" to "those who are saying we will burn down New York" – which some observers saw as a reference to Newsome.  Newsome previously told Fox News that his comments about "fire and bloodshed" were not a threat toward Adams or the city. Instead, he said, those are potential outcomes independent of organized leadership if the city government does not listen to their demands. "The mayor[-elect] is engaging in a political circus," said Newsome, an attorney and former Bronx political candidate. "My parents didn’t raise a clown. I’m not here to play the political games with him." Newsome accused Adams, who will take office as the Times Square ball drops on New Year's Eve, of trying to use BLM-GNY and himself as a way to make news and give himself a public relations boost....
    He rebutted, "No, it's us. We need to do this together." Adams again flaunted his experience as an NYPD captain and Democratic politician, "The same things I've been doing over the past 35 years I'm going to continue to do, and maybe you should look at those things I have done." Adams said, "I am not changing who I am. I'm going to begin the way I am; I'm going to leave the way I came in." Despite being granted a lengthy conference with the mayor-elect, members of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York were unsatisfied with Adams. Chivona Newsome — co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York — said when politicians meet black people "they shuck, they jive, they use rap quotes" without providing a "crystal-clear agenda." "It's pretty much however Eric Adams wants to go about it, that's how Black Lives Matter of Greater New York will address the problem," Newsome stated. "If he wants to see the city in an uprising, we can give him that. If he wants to end poverty...
    Getty Eagles starter Jalen Hurts is leading a Philly offense loaded with rookies and unknowns coming into the 2021 season. Offenses tend to be a tick or two behind defenses during the early days of training camps across the NFL. That’s been no different in South Philadelphia where the Eagles are learning a new system under first-year head coach Nick Sirianni. His offense has a few kinks to work out. The defense seemed to get the better of the offense during Saturday’s practice, especially when the starters were out there. All-Pro center Jason Kelce revealed the two sides tied the competitive portion – Sirianni has been awarding points to offense and defense every day – and credited the twos and threes for picking up the slack. Jason Kelce admits first-team offense was a little off on Saturday: "I think the defense got the better of us certainly in the situational competitive part yesterday which would have been the third down situational [stuff]." #Eagles #FlyEaglesFly — Michael Greger (@mike_greger) August 9, 2021 “Obviously as someone on the starting unit...
    SOUTH GATE, Calif. (KABC) -- South Gate community members came together to help raise money for a Girl Scout troop after a fire destroyed their supplies. The community treated them to a shopping spree to replace what they lost when a fire ripped through their storage unit."We want to say thank you to Councilmember Denise Diaz, the South Gate police, Order of Fraternal Eagles, American Legion and Fiesta Taxis," said Sarah Barron and Angela Reyes, girl scout members of the troop in South Gate.The Los Angeles County Fire Department never confirmed it was a Fourth of July firework that sparked the blaze, but Girl Scout leader Sara Rosas is convinced it was just that."I am sure it was a firework. I mean, like I said, yes, I do believe it was because of Fourth of July and it happened because of that," said Rosas.Community leader Thomas Buckley helped raise the money to replace the supplies."What was a tragedy turned into an opportunity for this community to come together and it has been amazing," said Buckley.The fire was one of the...
    BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai police used tear gas and water cannon against protesters marching on a military base in Bangkok on Sunday to call for King Maha Vajiralongkorn to give up direct command of the army unit housed there. Protesters threw bottles at police and marched right up to a barricade of shipping containers and barbed wire at the entrance to the base of the 1st Infantry Regiment in Bangkok, one of several army units that government of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha transferred to the king's control in 2019. The Thai youth-led political movement rose up last year to demand Prayuth's resignation and broke taboos by calling for reforms of the monarchy. Protesters also showed support for anti-coup demonstrations in Myanmar, which has been in chaos since the army seized power and detained elected government leader Aung San Suu Kyi. "Prayuth welcoming a Myanmar official from their military government to Thailand earlier this week also show that he is supporting the dictator there," Chukiat Sangwong, a Thai protest leader told Reuters, referring to Prayuth "This is not ok with the...

    Lawyers for Nxivm cult leader Keith Raniere asked a judge Tuesday to recommend that he be placed in a federal prison with a “drop-out yard” — a protective unit for inmates who could be targeted in the general population due to their crimes or celebrity status. “In light of the media interest in this case and due to the nature of the offense conduct . . . we request th at the Court recommend to the Bureau of Prisons that Mr. Raniere be housed at a facility that has a special or sensitive needs unit (sometimes called a ‘drop-out yard’),” wrote attorney Marc Agnifilo in a letter to US District Judge Nicholas Garaufis. Agnifilo specifically suggested FCI Allenwood in Pennsylvania or another facility that is within an eight-hour drive of New York City, so Raniere can meet with his lawyers to hone his appeal. Garaufis slammed the self-styled guru with 120 years in prison last week for running a twisted sex-slave cult where women were branded like cattle and forced to sleep with him. It took a jury less...

    While he was in North Carolina, President Trump met with the Army special operations unit that was involved in the raid that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. Trump visited Fort Bragg on Thursday, where he participated in a “troop engagement” that was done privately and closed to the media, according to the Associated Press. While there, the president presented the group with a “Presidential Unit Citation” for their valor. First lady Melania Trump was also present. “It was a really special moment,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said after the meeting. “Meant a lot to the president. He was with our heroes for about an hour just having casual conversations, answering questions.” President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up after arriving at Pope Army Field for an event with troops at Fort Bragg, Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020, in Pope Field, N.C.

    President Trump has awarded a citation to the Army special operations unit that conducted the 2019 raid resulting in the death of notorious Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. "It was a really special moment," White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said of the meeting, which took place in Fort Bragg, N.C. "Meant a lot to the president.  He was with our heroes for about an hour just having casual conversations, answering questions.” First lady Melania Trump attended the meeting as well. AL-BAGHDADI KILL: HOW THE DARING MILITARY OPERATION WENT DOWN Presidential citations are offered to units that act with exceptional heroism. "The unit must display such gallantry, determination, and esprit de corps in accomplishing its mission under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions as to set it apart and above other units participating in the same campaign," according to the U.S. Army.

    President Donald Trump presented a citation to a U.S. Army unit involved in the raid against the leader of the Islamic State. Trump presented a citation to the Army Special Operations unit that carried out the raid that killed the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the White House press secretary said on Thursday night. Trump met members of the unit at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Kayleigh McEnany told reporters aboard Air Force One as the president returned to Washington. Trump also visited a Special Forces memorial at Fort Bragg, McEnany added. Al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S raid in northern Syria in October 2019. At campaign rallies, Trump often mentions his death, along with the killing by the U.S. early this year of the Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. At the White House last November, the president awarded a medal to Conan, a military service dog that was hurt in the raid. Al-Baghdadi was the highest-ranking terrorist leader targeted by U.S. forces since Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011 in a raid in Pakistan during the Obama administration. ...
    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — For the first time in its history, the Nevada Highway Patrol has appointed a woman to lead the agency as colonel. Anne Carpenter assumed command Monday, where she will oversee about 600 employees, including 491 sworn officers, the Nevada Department of Public Safety said in a statement posted on its Facebook page. “I am humbled to be appointed Colonel of the Nevada Highway Patrol, and work alongside the men and women who have dedicated their lives to public safety,” Carpenter said in a statement. “I look forward to working together with our partnering agencies and community members to ensure the safety and protection of every life on Nevada roadways.” Carpenter replaces former Colonel Daniel Solow, who announced his retirement earlier this month.

She also served with the Highway Patrol Division as a lieutenant starting in 2005 and later as captain...
    Three years after predicting there was a 50% chance he’d end up dead for speaking against Russian President Vladimir Putin, top opposition leader Alexei Navalny is in a coma from suspected poisoning. The 44-year-old Navalny has led an anti-corruption crusade against the Kremlin, exposing government officials, including some at the highest level, of using their authority for personal gain. ALEXEI NAVALNY, A TOP PUTIN FOE, ALLEGEDLY POISONED: REPORTS In a 2017 interview with CBS News, Navalny said he was uncertain whether his campaign against political corruption could see him jailed. "Mr. Putin personally decides such things, and no one understands what is in his head," Navalny said. When asked what the chances were that he’d end up dead, Navalny answered: "Well, like, 50% I would be killed, or I would not be killed.” Navalny was placed on a ventilator in a hospital intensive care unit in Siberia after falling ill from suspected poisoning during a flight, his spokeswoman said Thursday. (AP Photo/Pavel Golovkin, File) Navalny was on a ventilator in a hospital intensive care unit on Thursday. He felt...
