    The newlywed husband accused of murdering his wife in their honeymoon bungalow on an exclusive private island in Fiji has challenged the ‘quality’ of the police evidence against him at a court hearing today. Memphis man Bradley Dawson, 39, is accused of beating to death his pharmacist wife Christe Chen, 39, on July 9 at the secluded $3,500-a-night Turtle Island Resort just two days after they checked in for their honeymoon. Her brutally beaten body was found slumped in the small space between the toilet and the wall of the bungalow’s bathroom. Dawson appeared at the High Court in Lautoka on Monday morning local time where his lawyer told Judge Riyaz Hamza that his client’s constitutional rights may have been breached. The lawyer, Iqbal Khan, also questioned the admissibility of a caution interview done by police after his arrest in July. He has now applied for what is known as a voir dire hearing - or, a trial within a trial - which has been scheduled for October 19. Dawson, who has pleaded not guilty to Chen’s murder, will make...

    Even though the Green Bay Packers defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it does not overshadow one glaring issue they have. One of the big matchups of Week 3 was between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This was the fifth and possibly final time that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers would face off head-to-head. The Packers were victorious, as they held on to defeat the Buccaneers 14-12. Tampa Bay appeared close to tying the game with a two-point conversion, but Brady’s pass to wide receiver Russell Gage fell incomplete. Even with the win and improving their record to 2-1, the Packers receiving corps still needs help.Packers wide receivers still an issue despite Week 3 winOf course, the big storyline entering the 2022 season was how Green Bay would overcome the losses of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

    Getty Draymond Green and Steve Kerr react to a play in a Golden State Warriors game. Draymond Green is ready to hit the ground running in the Golden State Warriors‘ title defense season. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr shared some big praise for the veteran big man as the team opened training camp on Saturday. Kerr said the team got started with an exhausting first practice, pitting the veterans against the younger players in a full-speed scrimmage to prepare for a preseason trip to Japan. After a season marked by injuries, Green’s play — and his conditioning — caught the coach’s attention.Warriors Veterans Dominate, Green ShinesKerr told reporters that Golden State’s veterans didn’t show much rust a little more than three months after leading the team to a fourth title in the last eight seasons.

    According to Kerner, there is a lot of "shadow support" for DeSantis among those who cannot publicly support DeSantis over fears of political alienation.What was the reaction?Kerner's surprise endorsement apparently sent shockwaves through Democratic ranks in south Florida. "The reaction I’m hearing from rank-and-file Democrats is this is outrageous," said Terrie Rizzo, chairwoman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party. "I am totally and completely shocked by Dave Kerner, and incredibly disappointed — it’s not a strong enough word — that Dave Kerner could support Gov. Ron DeSantis." Meanwhile, DeSantis welcomed Kerner's support. "Florida is a law-and-order state because we put the safety of Floridians first and we stand up for law enforcement and reject the Left’s anti-police movement," he said in a statement. "We are focused on protecting victims and not coddling criminals, and no one knows that better than Dave, who served Florida’s communities," the statement added. "Commissioner Kerner knows first-hand the threat of the Defund the Police movement and understands the important role that our local law enforcement officers play in keeping Florida safe."

The two confirmed their split in March 2022 after several weeks of speculation. “After 12 years on an adventure through life together, Tom and I are ending our marriage. This ending is not met with resentment or animosity, no sides to choose. We have deep admiration for one another that will always remain and we cherish our friendship. Although we may be on different paths, we will continue to love and support one another’s happiness,” Maloney’s statement on Instagram read.

The wide receiver missed Monday’s 41-7 win over the Tennessee Titans after suffering an ankle injury in practice, but said he hopes to be back on the field for Sunday’s game.

    Getty Images Pittsburgh Steelers quarterbacks Mitch Trubisky (left) and Kenny Pickett. After the Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football, Brooke Pryor of ESPN asked Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin whether he would consider making a change at quarterback — or play caller — during the upcoming minibye. “I’m not in that mindset. I’m interested in reviewing this tape and looking at the totality of it and how we collectively get better. So the answer to that question is: Definitively no,” he said, during his post-game press conference. That seems a pretty clear indication that Tomlin plans to continue to remain patient with the development of the Steelers offense. And that Mitch Trubisky will still be Pittsburgh’s starting quarterback when the team returns to action against the New York Jets at Acrisure Stadium on Oct. 2. This as opposed to turning to 2022 first-round pick Kenny Pickett, who has served as Trubisky’s backup in each of the team’s first three games, but has yet to see any regular-season action.Mike Tomlin on Mitch Trubisky: ‘I...
    Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) denied allegations Wednesday that it introduced its “gender-affirming” clinic as a scheme to “make money for the hospital” and that employees with “religious beliefs” were warned they would suffer “consequences” for not participating in the transgender medical interventions. Author and journalist Matt Walsh broke the story about Vanderbilt’s gender clinic that provides minors with body-mutilating surgeries and hormones that produce permanent, irreversible changes to children presented by parents as gender dysphoric. Walsh told Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tuesday night: We know for a fact…that [at] Vanderbilt they perform double mastectomies on minor girls…They give [children] irreversible hormone drugs that change their bodies permanently. Asked by Carlson if he has spoken to anyone from Vanderbilt University Medical Center about his findings, Walsh said he reached out to the hospital for a statement when he first published his report. “At first, they didn’t want to give a statement and they, and they actually just took down … they just deleted … their entire transgender clinic website, they wiped it from existence,” Walsh added, noting Vanderbilt released...
    Getty Ime Udoka of the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics’ offseason has officially descended into chaos. After some solid moves at the beginning of the summer, things have gone downhill. Danilo Gallinari tore his ACL while playing for the Italian national team at EuroBasket, and it was recently announced that Robert Williams will require knee surgery. However, the biggest bombshell came when Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that head coach Ime Udoka would likely be suspended. Shams Charania of The Athletic followed that up by revealing that he had a consensual relationship with a female member of Boston’s staff. It took a while for anyone on the Celtics’ side of things to release a statement, but late at night on Thursday, September 22, both Boston and Udoka himself commented on the matter. In his first statement since the incident came to light, Udoka apologized to the organization and its fans, and said that he had no further comments on the matter. “I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting...

    Getty Steve Kerr looks on during a game between the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns. On the latest episode of his podcast, The Draymond Green Show, the titular Golden State Warriors star made a particularly strong statement about Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver. Green’s proclamation: hold a vote and get him out of the league. After an investigation deemed that Sarver had used the n-word on several occasions and also engaged in other acts of misogyny and workplace abuse, the NBA instead handed down a one-year suspension and a $10 million fine. Green was far from the only one who thought that those punishments didn’t go far enough, though, with many calling for Sarver’s ouster. And while the league office didn’t go that far, Sarver looks to be removing himself from the situation by selling his team. Not everyone is ready to brand the 60-year-old a racist, however, and that includes Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who has a lot of history with the Suns owner.Kerr Had a Different Experience Under Sarver Play Woj details the timeline...

    Former President Donald Trump said his company told lenders the financial valuations of collateral he provided could not be relied on. In an interview with Sean Hannity at his Mar-a-Lago estate on Wednesday, Trump reacted to a civil lawsuit against the Trump Organization announced by New York Attorney General Letitia James earlier in the day. “Donald Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us,” James said at a press conference. She is seeking $250 million and wants to permanently bar Trump and his adult children involved in the company from operating businesses in New York. Trump has long faced accusations that he inflated the value of assets to secure loans from financial institutions. “First of all, these are banks of the best law firms in the world,” Trump told Hannity. “They do their own work, they don’t rely on us. But what they do is, we have a disclaimer. And we put together–my people put it together. I would look at it and it...

    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday raised benchmark interest rates by another three-quarters of a percentage point and indicated it will keep hiking well above the current level.In its quest to bring down inflation running near its highest levels since the early 1980s, the central bank took its federal funds rate up to a range of 3%-3.25%, the highest it has been since early 2008 following the third consecutive 0.75 percentage point move.The increases that started in March and from a point of near-zero mark the most aggressive Fed tightening since it started using the overnight funds rate as its principal policy tool in 1990. The only comparison was in 1994, when the Fed hiked a total of 2.25 percentage points; it would begin cutting rates by July of the following year.Along with the massive rate increases, Fed officials signaled the intention of continuing to hike until the funds level hits a "terminal rate," or end point of 4.6% in 2023.The "dot plot" of individual members' expectations doesn't point to rate cuts until 2024; Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and his colleagues...

    The NBA banned Robert Sarver from the owners’ club for a year, but now the embattled businessman apparently wants out. Sarver, the owner of the NBA’s Phoenix Suns and the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, announced in a statement on Wednesday that is he “beginning the process of seeking buyers” for both teams. The NBA announced a year-long suspension and a $10 million fine (the max allowed by league bylaws) last week after a year-long probe into Sarver’s workplace conduct. The league’s investigation found that Sarver used the N-word on multiple occasions and found “instances of inequitable conduct toward female employees.” Sarver also made “sex-related comments” and other inappropriate comments. “Words that I deeply regret now overshadow nearly two decades of building organizations that brought people together — and strengthened the Phoenix area — through the unifying power of professional men’s and women’s basketball,” Sarver said in his statement. Sarver, 60, who faced mounting pressure from sponsors and players alike, blamed “our current unforgiving climate” for the reason he was looking to sell the teams. “It has become painfully clear that that...

    Getty Derrick Rose is getting healthy. The New York Knicks are getting closer and closer to the start of the season, and fans are getting excited. After a rough last season, there’s a lot to look forward to this time around as Jalen Brunson is in town leading the show, marking a huge upgrade over Kemba Walker and Alec Burks from the previous year. Something that has flown under the radar this offseason is some of the veterans getting healthy. A big part of last season’s struggles was the fact the team had nobody to rely on at point guard, and that goes for Derrick Rose as well. Rose missed a good chunk of last season and only appeared in 26 total games.

    "The transportation of the immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was done on a voluntary basis," the statement continued. "The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned — and these activists didn’t care about them then," the statement explained. "Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts. It was disappointing that Martha’s Vineyard called in the Massachusetts National Guard to bus them away from the island within 48 hours." Interestingly, the Spanish-English document (that you can view here) does not specify a destination. Democrats have accused DeSantis of crimes from kidnapping to human trafficking. However, a Texas sheriff admitted on Monday that he is not sure any laws were broken.

    Leigh Vogel/Getty Images Fox News anchor Bret Baier disputed reporting that he pushed the network to retract its call that Joe Biden won Arizona in the 2020 presidential race. Insider reported on an excerpt of the new book from The New York Times’ Peter Baker and The New Yorker’s Susan Glasser titled The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021: Baier called for Fox News to reverse its call of Arizona for Biden. In the email to Fox News president Jay Wallace, Baier appeared to be pushing for the network to retract its call. “’It’s hurting us,’” said Baier, according to the authors. “’The sooner we pull it — even if it gives us major egg — and we put it back in [Trump’s] column the better we are in my opinion.’” But Baier said the “full context” of the email was not presented in the book. In a statement through a Fox News spokesperson, the anchor said, “This was an email sent AFTER election night. In the immediate days following the election, the vote margins in Arizona narrowed significantly...
    Getty Jalen Hurts #1 of the Philadelphia Eagles. The biggest question surrounding the 2022 Philadelphia Eagles was whether they had a franchise quarterback in Jalen Hurts. The next query after that, does he deserve a contract extension? And when do the two sides head to the negotiating table? Following Hurts’ dominating performance under the bright lights of Monday Night Football, those talks might be starting sooner rather than later. The former Heisman Trophy runner-up looked like a leading candidate for NFL MVP honors, throwing for 333 yards and 1 touchdown while completing 84% of his passes (26-of-31). Hurts also ran for 57 yards and two scores, including a back-breaker that showed off his work on the squat rack. It was a statement moment in arguably the best single-game outing by an Eagles quarterback since Michael Vick in 2010.

    A judge on Monday approved a motion by prosecutors to vacate the murder conviction of Adnan Syed, the subject of the first season of the popular “Serial” podcast, who has maintained he is innocent in the 1999 slaying of his ex-girlfriend. Baltimore prosecutors filed the motion last week asking for a new trial for Syed, who has been serving a life sentence after he was convicted of first-degree murder, robbery, kidnapping and false imprisonment in connection to the killing of Hae Min Lee. In explaining her decision to vacate, Baltimore City Circuit Judge Melissa Phinn cited material in the state investigation ​that was not properly turned over to defense attorneys​, as well as ​the existence of two suspects ​who may have been improperly cleared as part of the investigation. Her ruling was met by cheers and tears in the courtroom. Syed — who attended the hearing wearing a white button-down shirt, a dark tie and a kufi cap — was not handcuffed, but his feet were. After the ruling, officials uncuffed his ankles, and soon after, Syed walked out of...

    The pressure is mounting on Suns owner Robert Sarver. After receiving a one-year suspension for making racist/misogynistic remarks, PayPal says it will drop its sponsorship of the NBA franchise should Sarver remain the owner of the team. “PayPal’s sponsorship with the Suns is set to expire at the end of the current season,” said PayPal CEO Dan Schulman in a statement. “In light of the findings of the NBA’s investigation, we will not renew our sponsorship should Robert Sarver remain involved with the Suns’ organization, after serving his suspension. “Paypal is a values-driven company and has a strong record of combatting racism, sexism and all forms of discrimination.
