    After a ghastly start to the season, the Pac-12 is guaranteed to collect a slew of victories this weekend. Also guaranteed: a bevy of losses. The early round of conference play unfolds over the next four days, with each team playing one game at home and one on the road. This pre-Christmas weekend of league play was carved out of the schedule to accommodate the Pac-12’s move to a 20-game conference schedule, which was approved three years ago. Conference play began Wednesday night, with USC’s victory at Cal, and continues with five games Thursday. There are six on Sunday before the teams shift back to several weeks of non-conference competition. To the power ratings … 1.

    A day before the full pomp of a state banquet, the Bidens ducked out of the White House for an informal dinner with the French president and his wife at a Washington restaurant.  They picked Fiola Mare, an Italian spot on the Georgetown waterfront, for the rendezvous. On Thursday night, President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte will be afforded the first state dinner of the Bidens' time at the White House - complete with 200 lobsters and Napa Valley wine. Macron is getting the full works, starting Wednesday with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, then discussing space cooperation with Vice President at NASA headquarters in Washington. On Thursday he heads to the White House for Oval Office talks and a joint press conference.  Compared with Macron's awkward relationship with President Donald Trump, the events offer a carefully choreographed display of transatlantic togetherness.

    BAY POINT — Two males were fatally shot less than eight hours apart Thursday in different areas of Bay Point and suspects were arrested in both killings, the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office said Friday. The names of the two killed, and the age of one of them, have not yet been released. At about 3:40 p.m. Thursday, Muir Station deputies responded to a report of a shooting on Wharf Drive. A male was found shot on the street and was pronounced dead there. Sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee said deputies later detained two suspects nearby and after being interviewed they were arrested and booked at the Martinez Detention Facility.

The other suspect was identified as Arturo Morales, 38, of Antioch who was booked on suspicion of being an accessory and was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.. Authorities have not...
    In what might go down as one of the most monumental days in the history of UCLA athletics, the Bruins could learn Thursday whether their surprise move to the Big Ten Conference can proceed without interference from the University of California’s governing body. After months of assessing the possible benefits and drawbacks of UCLA’s defection from the Pac-12 to the Big Ten alongside USC in August 2024, the UC Regents could provide clarity during their meeting at UC Mission Bay about whether they intend to block the move or step aside. The agenda was revised Tuesday to add an action item that would allow the regents to intervene or withdraw any objections in the event there is a consensus during the open session. UCLA chancellor Gene Block and athletic director Martin Jarmond are expected to attend the meeting. Sports UC leaders say ‘all options are on the table’ as they weigh fighting UCLA’s Big Ten move University of California system leaders proposed new rules that may limit campuses from making major athletics contract decisions on their...
    Both key facets of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. empire - Fox News on TV and the New York Post in print - appear to have pivoted away from former President Donald Trump and to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the GOP's next great hope. The Post promoted their upcoming Thursday front page as 'TRUMPTY DUMPTY' with a fairly scathing criticism of the 45th president.  Their caption reads: 'Don (who couldn't build a great wall) had a great fall - can all the GOP's men put the party back together again?' The headlines come in as the fallout continues from what many are seeing as the Republican Party's failure to take turn historic unpopularity for President Joe Biden and the Democrats into a 'Red Wave.' As of Friday morning, the Senate remains in the balance, with the possibility of yet another runoff in Georgia deciding which party will control the upper chamber, assuming the heavily Trump-backed Blake Masters and Adam Laxalt can pull off upsets in Arizona and Nevada. The Post promoted their upcoming Thursday front page as 'TRUMPTY DUMPTY' with...
    Oprah Winfrey on Thursday night turned on the TV doctor she propelled to stardom - saying she would vote for Dr Mehmet Oz's rival John Fetterman in their battle to be elected to the Senate. Oz, a Turkish-American surgeon, and Fetterman, the current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, are neck-and-neck ahead of next week's election. Winfrey turned Oz into a household name when she appeared on his show in 2003, and invited him onto hers in 2004. He would go on to make more than 60 appearances on her hugely influential daytime show. Yet on Thursday, the 68-year-old media mogul said she could not support her former guest. 'At the beginning of the midterm campaigns, I said it was up to citizens to vote for who would represent them,' said Winfrey, addressing a virtual voting town hall.  'If I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman.  Oprah Winfrey is seen in an early appearance with Dr Oz. On Thursday, she disavowed him and said she was backing his rival for the Senate, John Fetterman ...

    Welcome to the Glean, MinnPost’s twice-daily roundup of Minnesota news. For MPR News, Mark Zdechlik writes, “Up until now, much of the Minnesota 2nd District congressional race has been playing out in negative TV ads, many being paid for by organizations from outside of Minnesota.  That changed Thursday when Democratic incumbent Angie Craig and Republican challenger Tyler Kistner met face-to-face for the first and only debate of this year’s campaign that was held at Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount. … While Kistner has been focused on the economy in light of inflation and high gas prices, Craig misses no opportunity to talk about preserving abortion rights.” Joey Peters at Sahan Journal reports, “Three defendants pleaded guilty Thursday in a massive food-aid fraud investigation, admitting that they inflated or completely lied about the number of meals they served needy children in order to receive federal money. Bekam Merdassa, Hannah Marekegn, and Hadith Yusuf Ahmed pleaded guilty in federal court to one count each of wire fraud. … They face prison terms ranging from about two years to nearly five years; the...
    For the second week in a row, NFL Twitter had reason to hammer the Thursday Night Football matchup as the Bears and Commanders struggled. Amazon paid a whole lot of money to broadcast Thursday Night Football. They’re not getting their money’s worth so far this season. And neither are NFL fans. The latest Thursday nightmare involved the Bears and the Commanders in a matchup that most could have told you would be subpar on paper. It was even uglier on the field, and we’re not just talking about Chicago’s choice of headwear.NFL Twitter roasted the Bears and CommandersTwitter bemoaned the entire experience of watching the only pro football available to them. Amazon is lucky the entire audience didn’t just switch over to FS1 to watch a barnburner between West Virginia and Baylor.

    What could be the final hearing of the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack will get underway on Thursday afternoon. It's expected to largely focus on Donald Trump's 'state of mind' as his supporters stormed the US Capitol last year, committee aides said in a call on Wednesday. Notably, there will be no testimony from live witnesses during the expected two-and-a-half hour event. In-person accounts from people like former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson and Georgia election worker Shaye Moss had made for some of the most compelling and memorial moments of the committee's set of summer hearings. Thursday is also expected to make public some of 'the hundreds of thousands of pages that the United States Secret Service has produced' after being subpoenaed by the committee in July. The Secret Service was thrown into the center of the committee's months-long investigation when 25-year-old Hutchinson testified about being told that Trump physically attacked an agent who refused to drive him to the US Capitol with his supporters. While live witnesses are not scheduled to appear, Punchbowl News reported...
    McDonald’s will be serving Happy Meals in Halloween Pails beginning Oct. 18, the fast food giant announced on Thursday, Oct. 6. Pails will be replace the Happy Meal box while supplies last at participating restaurants. The containers, also called Halloween Buckets, were launched in the 1980s but discontinued in 2016. Thursday’s announcement follows weeks of fan anticipation and speculation on social media. “We heard you loud and clear … if spooky SZN doesn’t include McDonald’s Halloween Pails, then you don’t want it,” McDonald’s said in a news release. The pails will feature three characters introduced in 1986: McBoo, McPunk’n and McGoblin. They will come in orange, white or light green with jack-o-lantern faces on the sides. The pails are made of plastic and recyclable, according to the company. In 2021, it announced an initiative to make sustainable Happy Meal toys out of renewable or recycled materials, aiming for a 90% reduction of fossil fuel-based plastic. But a lot of the original buckets never made it to landfills. Earlier designs have become collector items. On eBay, the online auction, some 1986 buckets have bids...

    A Los Angeles news anchor has been fired after going off-script and calling out his own television station live on air over the departure of his beloved co-anchor. Mark Mester, of KTLA, was first suspended and then given his marching orders Thursday after binning a pre-prepared script and launching an impassioned apology to 'best friend' Lynette Romero, who had left the station a few days earlier. 'I want to start off right now by offering up an apology to you,' Mester said live on air Saturday. 'What the viewers experienced was rude, it was cruel, it was inappropriate and we are so sorry. The station had announced the departure of Romero, a long-serving and popular host of the weekend morning show, without giving her an opportunity to say goodbye to viewers, much to their outrage.

    Kanye West has said he is open to returning to politics, insisting that he had not been put off by his failed presidential bid in 2020.

    Since when is nudity a pillar of gay culture? Rockaway Park: It was a beautiful, sunny day in Rockaway. The waves were extraordinary and many surfers were out, including many young teenagers who were surfing the waves under their parents’ watch. As it happens, you start out surfing on the east side of the jetty on Beach 149th St. and end up on the west side of the jetty due to the current. This is where respect for each other comes in. A woman was sunbathing completely nude near the jetty where everyone had to exit the surf and climb back to the eastern side of the jetty to catch more waves. A parent told her to put her bottom on and her response was, “F— you.” The U.S. Park Police were called and responded and the officer, using great diplomacy, asked her to don her bottom and she complied after a lengthy diatribe concerning her rights. At this point, a gentleman came over and explained to us that this was a gay beach (duh — I lived on...
    A man who stalked CSI Miami actress Eva LaRue for over a decade, threatening to rape and kill both her and her daughter was sentenced to prison last week after the FBI caught him through DNA he left on fast food straw. James David Rogers, 58, of Heath, Ohio, was sentenced on Thursday to 40 months in federal prison, according to a Department of Justice press release.  From March 2007 to June 2015, Rogers mailed about 37 handwritten and typed letters to LaRue's California home in which he threatened both LaRue and her daughter, it was revealed.  LaRue, 55, an actress also known for her longtime role on 'All My Children,' was midway through her second full season on 'CSI: Miami' when the first letter showed up at her house in 2007. Many more followed over the next 12 years.  'I am going to f**king stalk you until the day you die,' said one, according to a 2019 federal indictment of Rogers. 'There will be no place on this earth that I ... (can't) find you. I am going to rape...

    While the UK continues to reel from the death of Queen Elizabeth II, woke liberals have renewed their attack on the former monarch. A University of Michigan education professor even compared the monarchy to the Confederacy in the United States. 'Telling the colonized how they should feel about their colonizer's health and wellness is like telling my people that we ought to worship the Confederacy,' Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, an associate professor of education, tweeted on Thursday. '"Respect the dead" when we're all writing these tweets *in English*,' she continued. 'How did that happen, hm? We just chose this language?' Following backlash for the tweet, she later added: 'You don't see me dancing on anyone's grave because my ancestors' enslaver removed us in the 18th Century. You also don't see me policing other people's emotions.'  Meanwhile, Eugene Scott, a national politics reporter for the Washington Post asked: 'Real question for the "now is not the appropriate time to talk about the negative impact of colonialism" crowd: When is the appropriate time to talk about the negative impact of colonialism?' And American...
    (CNN) — The Las Vegas investigative journalist who was stabbed to death last week had the alleged killer’s DNA underneath his fingernails, a prosecutor and a judge said Thursday at the accused man’s initial court appearance. As more details became known in a chilling case that has raised concerns about press freedoms in America, the district attorney also spoke publicly of his decision to release the suspect, Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, for several hours on Wednesday. After police officers had searched his home and towed away two vehicles, Telles returned around 2:30 p.m. wearing what seemed to be a white hazmat jumpsuit. He ignored reporters’ questions and went in through the garage. Robert Telles just arrived at his house. Reporters asked him if he had any comment. I asked why police towed his vehicle. He had no comment.

The former Donald Trump aide will surrender to face the charges Thursday morning, people familiar with the matter told CNN.The state charges, which have been returned in an indictment, are based on the same conduct Bannon was charged with by federal prosecutors in 2020 that alleged he and three others had defrauded donors in the border wall effort, which raised more than $25 million.The Manhattan district attorney's office launched a criminal investigation into Bannon's "We Build the Wall" crowd-fundraising activities early last year after then-President Trump pardoned Bannon on federal fraud charges relating to the same alleged scheme.Presidential pardons do not apply to state investigations.Read MoreAs CNN previously reported, Bannon was federally charged with diverting more than $1 million to pay an alleged co-conspirator and cover hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal expenses.

    Steve Bannon, once one of Donald Trump's most trusted advisors, is expected a New York City court on Thursday to surrender on charges related to his 'We Build the Wall' fundraising effort.  Bannon, 68, was convicted in July on contempt of Congress charges in relation to the January 6th Capitol riot.  On Tuesday, Bannon contacted DailyMail.com to call the indictment 'phony charges' and the prosecutors 'deranged thugs.'  He added: 'They are coming after all of us, not only President Trump and myself. I am never going to stop fighting.'  Former White House strategist Steve Bannon, center, walks to speak with reporters as he departs federal court on Friday, July 22, 2022, in Washington Bannon is accused of defrauding contributors to the 'We Build the Wall' project Prior to leaving office in January 2021 after losing the presidential election to Joe Biden, Trump gave Bannon a federal pardon on conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering charges.  The new indictment being brought by the Southern District of New York's District Attorney's office is similar to those charges,...
    President Joe Biden will give an optimistic, not a political speech, when he addresses Americans on Thursday night, the White House says. But his remarks, coming 10 weeks before the November midterm election, will push for voter participation as the president works to keep Democrats in control of Congress.  The president will balance his attacks on 'extreme MAGA Republicans' and the threat to democracy with an optimistic look at America's future. Office. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president will talk about protecting freedom and that those who don't agree are 'extreme.'  'When you are not with where majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking,' she said at Thursday's press briefing. She cited those who are pushing for a full ban on abortions - no exceptions - and those who attack democracy and incite calls for violence as examples.  She said the speech, which begins at 8 p.m. ET, will be optimistic in tone and not political.  'It's not a political speech,' Jean-Pierre said. 'What we're going to hear...
    Former President Donald Trump complained Thursday that the FBI made him look like a 'slob' after a Department of Justice filing released Tuesday showed a photo of classified documents strewn on the floor of what's presumably an office space at Mar-a-Lago.  'A lot of people think that when you walk into my office, I have confidential documents or whatever it may be - all declassified - but I had confidential documents spread out all over my floor. Like a slob,' Trump said Thursday morning on the John Fredericks Radio Show. 'Like I'm sitting there reading these documents all day long or somebody else would be.'  The ex-president had called into the right-leaning TV network to push that the DOJ's move was 'dishonest,' because investigators 'put them there in a messy fashion, and then they took a picture and they released it to the public.'  Former President Donald Trump complained Thursday that the FBI made him look like a 'slob' after a Department of Justice filing released Tuesday showed a photo of classified documents strewn on the floor of what's presumably an...

    President Joe Biden will speak to Ukrainian President Volodmyr Zelensky on Thursday, a senior official announced on the country's independence day, but still has no plans to visit. Details of the call emerged after British Minister Boris Johnson made his third trip to wartime Ukraine. During his visit he saw his name engraved on a plaque marking the 'Walk of the Brave' celebrating politicians who have stood with Ukraine against Russia, forcing the White House to face questions about why Biden has yet to make the trip. John Kirby, National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, said Biden would speak to Zelensky by phone on Thursday. 'This is the latest in a  string of the conversations he has had with President Zelensky,' he said. 'Secretary Blinken has travelled to Kyiv. Secretary Austin has travelled to Kyiv. 'As you know we have an ambassador there as well.  'We have good connectivity with our Ukrainian counterparts. 'And look, if and when a trip by the president makes the most sense then clearly we'll appropriately consider that.' President Joe Biden returned to the...
    The FBI and Los Angeles police joined other law enforcement agencies in a predawn gang sweep Thursday, arresting more than a dozen members of the Playboys 13 gang as part of a racketeering case that names about 40 of the gang’s leading members. Heavily armed FBI agents and police officers fanned out across L.A.'s Eastside and into various surrounding communities, arresting those named in federal criminal court documents as being part of a scheme that sold narcotics, assaulted foes and sometimes led to murder. Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the FBI, confirmed that there were at least a dozen arrests made in the gang investigation Thursday morning and that authorities were still searching for a small number of individuals facing charges related to gang activity. The Playboys are a Southern California Surenos gang long associated with the Mexican Mafia prison gang. In 2017, the Los Angeles City Attorney‘s Office went to the county to bar them from a church property that they made the center of their narcotics trade. Federal prosecutors are expected to disclose details of the charges...
    The husband of Indiana Congresswoman Jackie Walorski has paid tribute to his principled and courageous wife, speaking at a vigil on Thursday - the day after her death in a car crash. Walorski, 58, died alongside her aides Zachery Potts, 27, of Mishawaka, Indiana, and Emma Thomson, 28, of Washington, D.C. Their SUV crossed the center line and crashed head-first into an oncoming vehicle driven by Edith Schmucker, 56, of Nappanee, who was also killed. The accident happened near the northern Indiana town of Nappanee.  Friends and relatives of Walorski and her team gathered in Elkhart, near where she lived, to pay tribute. Dean Swihart, who was married to Walorski for 27 years, told the crowd at Jimtown High School how proud he was of his wife.

    President Joe Biden plans to meet 'face to face' with Chinese President Xi Jinping at a future date, a senior administration official said Thursday following a fifth call between the two leaders. The call comes at a time of deep tensions between the U.S. and China, with Beijing issuing warnings about a potential visit to Taiwan by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and China lining up with Russia even amid Moscow's war on Ukraine. 'President Biden has continually emphasized the importance of maintaining open lines of communication to ensure that the United States and China manage our differences and work together on areas of shared interest. This call was part of our ongoing efforts to do that. They also discussed the value of meeting face to face and agreed to have their teams follow up to find a mutually agreeable time to do so,' according to a senior administration official who briefed reporters. The official declined to weigh in on Pelosi's expected trip, which has not been officially announced, but which has brought a stiff warning from Beijing. President Joe Biden...
    Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who is running for the Senate this November, lit into the Republican Party on the House floor on Thursday as most GOP members stood to oppose the CHIPs-Plus Bill. “This is the first step towards an industrial policy in the United States of America. And it is time for us to quit the politics, stop trying to score political points. Stop putting party over country,” said a very animated Ryan. The CHIPs-Plus bill passed the Senate with broad bipartisan support on Wednesday and aims to fix the semiconductor chip shortage and make the U.S. less reliant on China for manufacturing chips, which supporters argue is a national security priority. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) railed against the bill in a floor speech Thursday calling it “ a $280 billion blank check” and “corporate welfare.” The House GOP sent out a notice on Wednesday announcing they will whip against the bill. “Lay down our arms. My God, if we can’t agree on this, what the Hell are we going to agree on? Rebuilding the manufacturing base....

    Russian defence minister Sergei Shoigu today gave the order to dramatically increase so-called shock and awe attacks on Ukraine. He claimed Kremlin forces must 'exclude the possibility of the Kyiv regime inflicting massive rocket and artillery strikes on civilian infrastructure and residents of the Donbas and other regions,' according to reports in Moscow. It followed an on-the-ground inspection by Putin's trusty defence minister - and a National Security Council meeting led by Vladimir Putin.

    LAS VEGAS — Jama Mahlalela had a lot to smile about after Summer League practice Thursday. “The team played better today so that made me feel better, it’s more about that,” he said Thursday afternoon. “But I feel awesome.” Receiving a promotion after your first year on the job will do that to a person. The Warriors didn’t have to look far for Mike Brown’s replacement as they’re planning to promote assistants Kenny Atkinson and Mahlalela for the upcoming season. Atkinson, who recently passed on a head coaching job elsewhere, will take over Brown’s spot as lead assistant after Brown left to take a head coaching job with the Kings. Meanwhile, Mahlalela, a developmental guru, will move to the front of the bench as he’ll take on more responsibilities in his second season with the Warriors. The news, which was first reported Thursday morning by The Athletic, doesn’t come as a total surprise since general manager Bob Myers hinted at his pre-draft news conference that he preferred to fill the void left by Brown’s departure with internal candidates.

    Fifteen Republican senators caved Thursday night and voted “yes” on the gun control package Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) worked with Democrats to create. Cornyn’s gun control bill expands background checks for some gun buyers, uses taxpayer money to incentivize states to enact red flag laws, and broadens the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) prohibited purchasers list by using domestic violence statutes to cover dating relationships. It also heightens punishments for gun crimes that had nothing to do with Uvalde, Buffalo, Parkland, Las Vegas, Orlando, or Sandy Hook. CBS News reported that the legislation passed Thursday night by a vote of 65-33. Here are the 15 Republican Senators who caved and voted for the new gun controls: Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) Sen. Todd Young (R-IN) The gun control was opposed...
    The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday declared a New York law requiring residents to show a “special need” to qualify for a concealed-gun permit was unconstitutional. Given that several states, including California, have similar laws and practices in place, here’s what the decision means in the short and long term. Q: What exactly did the Supreme Court decide? A: In ruling on New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, the court’s 6-3 conservative majority struck down a requirement in New York that applicants for concealed weapons permits must prove to the state’s satisfaction that they have an “actual and articulable” self-defense claim rather than a general or unspecified safety fear. The court found the requirement, which is subjective and has been argued to be unevenly enforced in New York — and locally in the Bay Area — unfairly restricted Second Amendment rights. Q: How does California regulate concealed-gun permits? A: The state Department of Justice issues permits, but they are processed by county sheriff’s offices and local police departments. State law gives the heads of those law-enforcement agencies...
    The Chicago White Sox continued to get hit hard on the injury front Thursday with the news infielder Danny Mendick suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during an outfield collision Wednesday at Guaranteed Rate Field. Mendick was placed on the 10-day IL along with Adam Engel, who suffered a strained right hamstring one inning after Mendick went down. The Sox on Thursday recalled first baseman/outfielder Gavin Sheets from Triple-A Charlotte, and selected the contract of Double-A infielder Lenyn Sosa. Eloy Jiménez was transferred to the 60-day IL and was eligible to be reinstated as early as Thursday. Jiménez is rehabbing at Charlotte. Engel’s injury was not considered severe, but the loss of Mendick for at least the rest of the season is another crushing blow to the Sox, who’ve suffered a string of injuries since Garrett Crochet and Lance Lynn went down during spring training. Mendick, 28, was hitting .289 with 15 RBIs in 31 games, earning more playing time from manager Tony La Russa and respect from Sox fans for his gritty play. The left-handed hitting Sheets...
    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has said that US government debt is on an 'unsustainable path' while admitting that he underestimated the threat of inflation and warning that a recession is possible. Powell's remarks came in testimony before the House Financial Services Committee on Thursday, as the powerful Fed chair wrapped up a second day of appearances on Capitol Hill. 'The US is on an unsustainable fiscal path, meaning the debt is growing faster than the economy,' said Powell. 'By definition, that is unsustainable.' Powell said that for now, the US has no issue servicing its debt, and that although there is no imminent threat of default, eventually government debt will have to drop back below economic growth.   'We will need to get back where revenues and spending are better aligned. We don't need to pay the debt down, we just need to have the economy growing faster than the debt over a longer time,' he said. Powell was in the hot seat this week primarily over the issue of inflation, which has soared to a 40-year high. In May, the...
    Isaiah Likely extended every inch of his 6-foot-4 frame and, with one hand, snatched the football out of the air just before it hit the ground. Referees working the final day of Ravens minicamp ruled the rookie tight end out of bounds, but his athletic display was nonetheless a highlight from the team’s last week of work before an extended summer break. Quarterback Lamar Jackson and coach John Harbaugh both shouted out Likely, a fourth-round draft pick from Coastal Carolina, at their post-practice news conferences. “Tremendous catches,” Jackson said. James Proche II and Rashod Bateman said the rookie had lived up to his draft billing as an oversized wide receiver. Proche noted that his younger brother goes to Coastal Carolina, so he has watched Likely for several years. “I already knew what he was capable of,” he said. The Ravens will probably start the season carrying four tight ends: Mark Andrews, Nick Boyle, Likely and fellow fourth-round pick Charlie Kolar. Given the paucity of experienced wide receivers on the roster, one of the rookies could easily become a frequent target...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden said Friday he has been briefed on the three Americans who have gone missing in Ukraine after they traveled to the country to fight alongside Ukrainian forces against Russia.In brief remarks to reporters as he left for a weekend on the beach in Delaware, Biden said repeatedly Americans should not travel to Ukraine at this time. "We don't know where they are, but I want to reiterate: Americans should not be going to Ukraine now," Biden said in response to a question from CNN's MJ Lee at the White House. On Wednesday CNN reported that Alexander John-Robert Drueke, 39, from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Andy Tai Ngoc Huynh, 27, from Hartselle, Alabama, had been missing for nearly a week and there were fears that they may have been captured by Russian forces, according to their families and a fellow fighter. Drueke and Huynh had been fighting alongside Ukrainian forces north of Kharkiv. CNN on Thursday reported a third American whom the State Department had identified as missing in action in Ukraine was US Marine veteran Grady Kurpasi. He...
    As El Monte mourns the loss of two police officers, questions remain about how the deadly shootout happened, and whether the man accused of killing them should have been in prison at the time for a previous gun violation. Cpl. Michael Paredes and Officer Joseph Santana were shot while responding to a report of a possible stabbing in a room at the Siesta Inn, 10327 Garvey Ave., Tuesday afternoon. The suspect, identified by coroner’s officials as Justin William Flores, 35, ran out into the parking lot and was killed in a second gun battle with police, officials said. Flores was on probation at the time of the shootout and had a previous strike on his record, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and court records. He had served two sentences in state prison – one for the burglary in 2011 which earned him the strike and another for a vehicle theft in 2009, California Department of Correction records showed. Both sentences were served prior to a gun violation and other charges filed in 2020. Flores pleaded guilty...
    Kevin Spacey will appear in court on Thursday charged with four counts of sexual assault against three men in London and Gloucestershire. The Oscar-winning actor, 62, is accused of four counts of sexual assault against three men between 2005 and 2013. Spacey is also charged with a single count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent against one of the same three men after the Metropolitan Police opened a criminal probe in 2017. The offences are alleged to have taken place while he was the artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London. He will stand charged with the offences at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday.  The Crown Prosecution Service authorised charges against him last month, but Spacey could only be charged once he had travelled to the UK. British prosecutors had suggested they would try and extradite the actor from the US, but he will appear in court voluntarily.  In a statement released to Good Morning America after the Crown Prosecution Service announcement last month, Spacey said he was 'confident' he will prove his innocence....

DocuSign on Thursday reported adjusted earnings per share of 38 cents, adjusted, missing Wall Street's projected 46 cents per share.

DocuSign's business got a major lift in the early months of the coronavirus pandemic with the increase in online transactions, but it has been slowing in recent quarters as it faces tough comparisons to exceptional growth in 2020 and early 2021. Additionally, the company said Thursday it has experienced challenges due to the deteriorating macroeconomic environment, particularly the war in Ukraine. Several firms, including Evercore ISI, Bank of America and William Blair downgraded the stock following the earnings report. William Blair's Jake Roberge downgraded...
    By Robert Snell, Craig Mauger, Beth LeBlanc | The Detroit News Allendale — FBI agents arrested Republican gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley on misdemeanor charges related to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Ryan Kelley (The Detroit News)  The arrest and search that unfolded at Kelley’s home in Allendale outside of Grand Rapids add more uncertainty to a chaotic race for governor that has seen five Republican candidates blocked from the ballot for submitting fraudulent nominating petition signatures. Prosecutors filed four charges against Kelley, 40. They are knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building; disorderly and disruptive conduct; knowingly engaging in any act of physical violence against person or property in a restricted building or grounds; willfully injuring or committing depredation against property of the U.S. Kenzi Niewiadomski, one of Kelley’s neighbors in his Allendale subdivision whose sister lives across the street from him, said she witnessed FBI agents leading Kelley away from his home in handcuffs Thursday morning. Kelley’s wife and children left the home with backpacks in hand and got into a family van moments after...

    Nick Quested is a filmmaker who had been documenting the Proud Boys on and before January 6 A British documentary filmmaker who shot footage of the Proud Boys on and around January 6 last year will be a witness in Thursday night's hearing by the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot, it was reported on Monday night. Nick Quested was embedded with the far-right group and would have video evidence of its members' confrontations with law enforcement outside of the Capitol as well as other key findings about its activity. The Democrat-led panel is also expected to hear from Capitol police officer Caroline Edwards on the other side of the conflict. Edwards was injured in a dust-up linked to Proud Boys members while defending the complex that day. Both of their appearances were reported by the New York Times. Their expected testimonies are a sign that lawmakers' first in a series of six hearings will focus heavily on the Proud Boys, who have been accused of playing a central role in instigating the violence that day and coordinating Trump...

    Elon Musk, co-founder and chief executive officer of Tesla Motors.Yuriko Nakao | Bloomberg | Getty Images Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Friday blasted the Biden administration and Democrats on Twitter, as the world's richest man doubled down on his vow to vote for Republicans. Musk in a tweet accused the Biden administration of doing "everything it can to sideline" and ignore Tesla, despite its dominance in the electric vehicle industry. Musk, who is making an increasingly fraught attempt to buy Twitter for $44 billion, suggested Thursday that Democrats would target him with a smear campaign after he announced that he would vote for GOP candidates. "In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican," Musk tweeted Thursday. "Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold …," he wrote, ending the tweet with a "popcorn" emoji. Hours later Thursday, Business Insider published a bombshell report detailing allegations that Musk exposed his genitals to a private...
