    Right to the end of an emotional three days Roger Federer was ever the competitor, admitting that a shock defeat for his Team Europe at the Laver Cup had been a sting in the tail. ‘I don’t like losing, it’s not fun, it leaves a bad taste,’ said the Swiss legend, following a 13-8 reverse that saw his side lose this event for the first time in five editions. Federer will be back soon enough, and is sure to be around in some capacity at next year’s event when it moves on to visit Vancouver. He denied there were any immediate plans to take over as Europe captain, and Bjorn Borg said he will stay in the role for a year before stepping down.

    Philadelphia Eagles fans were enjoying being on the other side of a poor Carson Wentz performance. The Philadelphia Eagles used to have a quarterback named Carson Wentz. There were the highs of an MVP-caliber season in 2017, but then there were the lows of not being able to replicate that year and turning the ball over seemingly at will. Now, Wentz is on the Washington Commanders, one year after the Eagles traded him to the Indianapolis Colts. Wentz faced off against his former team for the very first time, but he did not have a revenge story. Instead, the revenge was from the Philly defense, as they pummeled him with sacks, and forced a bevy or turnovers. That allowed the Eagles offense to feast. In the first half, Wentz completed 3-of-10 pass attempts for just 24 yards, and he was sacked six times. That’s right, six times in the first half.Eagles fans troll Carson Wentz as he struggles in Week 3To say Eagles fans took joy in being on the other side of a bad Wentz game is an understatement....

    Investigators work to exhume bodies from a mass burial site in Ukraine.Pavel Nemecek/AP Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.On Friday, investigators working for the United Nations delivered a sobering statement to the UN Human Rights Council detailing evidence of Russian war crimes committed as part of the nation’s ongoing occupation of Ukraine, including the rape of children, torture, beatings, electric shocks, forced nudity, and the disappearance of people taken into Russian detention. These findings came as part of the first official update from three experts who were asked to investigate allegations of war crimes that first arose this spring, soon after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Their investigation focused on four areas of Ukraine—Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Sumy—where horrific reports of alleged war crimes, including the rape of civilians and summary executions, began to emerge between late February and March of this year as Russia began its war. Friday’s report is the first from the UN to bring forth extensive evidence backing up these allegations, including through interviews with dozens...
    The Seattle Mariners traded for Luis Castillo before the deadline, and have now signed him to a monster contract extension. Jerry DiPoto dealt for Castillo fully knowing that a contract extension had to be the next move. But first, he inked franchise cornerstone Julio Rodriguez to a deal linking him with the organization for the next decade-plus. That signing, it turns out, was the first of what’s to come. Castillo is the head of the Mariners’ pitching staff, and has performed as such since he was acquired. Just this year, Castillo has a 2.83 ERA and 1.09 WHIP since the Reds traded him to the American League. Assuming Seattle makes the playoffs, he will headline any Wild Card series-opener for the Mariners. BREAKING: Right-hander Luis Castillo and the Seattle Mariners are in agreement on a five-year, $108 million contract extension, sources tell ESPN. A sixth-year vesting option can take it to $133 million.

    In what was expected to be a blowout game, the Georgia Bulldogs were in a close contest against the Kent State Golden Flashes. In Week 3, the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs made easy work of the South Carolina Gamecocks. One week later, they were seemingly set to have an easy game against the Kent State Golden Flashes. On paper, it was expected to be a blowout that would help Georgia maintain their top position on the AP Top 25 rankings list. Instead, the Bulldogs struggled in the first half against the Golden Flashes. At the end of the second quarter, Georgia entered their locker room with just a 19-13 lead.

    About 35 years ago, if a shortstop drove in 99 runs and clocked 25 homers, they’d be tried as a witch. That’s exactly what Francisco Lindor has done this season though, and with 11 games to spare, the switch-hitting straw that stirs the Mets’ drink will finish the season with even prettier numbers. In 1987, the average MLB shortstop slashed .258/.315/.365 (.680 OPS) with an 80 wRC+, meaning as a collective, shortstops were 20% worse than the league’s average hitter. Entering Friday’s series opener in Oakland, Lindor is flexing a .271/.344/.454 slash line (.798 OPS) and 130 wRC+. With four more RBI, he will break Carlos Guillen’s single-season record for runs driven in by a switch-hitting shortstop. The evolution of the modern, slugging shortstop is one of many changes that have swept through the games in recent years, and Lindor is perhaps the most prime example of how a guy who hits like a corner outfielder but fields like a middle infielder is the most valuable type of player a team can have. His partner in the cleanup spot, meanwhile,...
    FANS of the Kardashians have gushed over Kim and her eldest son Saint - dubbing them "twins" thanks to a throwback snap. The mother-of-four often poses for sweet snaps with her children on social media, including second child Saint, six, who her following have likened to her mini-me. 3Fans dubbed Saint his mum's twin in the throwback photoCredit: Instagram / Kim Kardashian 3The school photo showed Kim as a young childCredit: REDDIT Fans of Kim, 41, headed to a Kardashian Reddit thread on Thursday to compare Saint to his mum at the same age in a throwback snap. The photo showed a young Kim in her school uniform as a young child, posing in a blazer and shirt with a large bow on her head. Looking up towards the camera, social media users pointed out her similar facial features to her eldest son Saint.

    Kanye West said social media could be used for harm or good in his first interview since his unhinged Instagram tirade against ex-wife Kim Kardashian last month, where he claimed she controlled their children's lives and likened himself to a sperm donor.  The rapper - who now goes by the name Ye - was interviewed by ABC News' Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis. A portion of the interview aired on Good Morning America on Thursday, but the full sit-down will air tonight at 8.30pm.  The 45-year-old was asked first whether he believes social media is of hurtful or beneficial to him.  Smiling, he replied: 'That's one of my favorite questions of this interview.  'I mean, we can use a car to rush somebody to the hospital or we can use a car and accidentally hit somebody while we're rushing somebody to the hospital. So it's all in how we use it.'  The rapper - who now goes by the name Ye - was interviewed by ABC News' Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis. A portion of the interview aired on Good...
    A game that got off to an ominous start for the Mets ended with a 6-0 loss to the Brewers. Brandon Nimmo exited in the bottom of the first inning with left quad tightness. Jeff McNeil also jammed his knee into the ground while pursuing a fly ball in the third inning, and though he didn’t leave like Nimmo, he certainly didn’t look right after that. Trying to rob Mike Brosseau’s pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning didn’t make things any better, as McNeil got tangled in the chain link fence in left field chasing a ball he had no chance of catching. It was a strange afternoon in Milwaukee to say the least. The Mets know that they can rest any player who even has a troublesome hangnail and still have their guaranteed spot in the playoffs, but they also know that doing so is an invitation for the Atlanta Braves to overtake them in the National League East. This puts manager Buck Showalter in the unenviable position of having to manage little bumps and bruises versus the...
    A couple with a 37-year age gap have celebrated their first wedding anniversary – despite dealing with nasty trolls slamming their relationship nearly every day. Quran McCain, 25, and his 62-year-old wife, mother-of-seven Cheryl McGregor, both from Rome, Georgia, first met in 2012 - when he was just 15 years old - while they were working at the fast food chain Dairy Queen.  The controversial couple soon started sharing an inside look at their relationship on TikTok, where they racked up more than three-and-a-half million followers - many of whom did not support their love due to their massive difference in age. Despite the backlash, the pair tied the knot on September 3, 2021, during an intimate ceremony which was livestreamed to their millions of TikTok followers.

    Ask people what their favourite movie is and the answer is often, 'Oh I couldn't possibly narrow it down to one'. Ask them what's the best sex they've ever had in their life, and they answer fast and without hesitation. Almost everyone has one stand-out experience that knocks the socks off the rest. What ingredients do you need for a sex session that's hotter than any you've had before – or will again? I asked a cross-section of people to anonymously reveal their very best time in bed - and this is what they told me.

    Foreign direct investment from Germany to China grew by about 30% in the first eight months of the year from a year ago, China's Ministry of Commerce said Monday.Vcg | Visual China Group | Getty Images BEIJING — European businesses in China are revaluating their market plans after this year's Covid controls further isolated the country from the rest of the world, said Joerg Wuttke, president of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China. China's stringent Covid policy has restricted international travel, and business activity — especially after a two-month lockdown this year in Shanghai. The tough measures of the last two years initially helped China recover more quickly from the pandemic's shock compared to other countries. But the policy increasingly contrasts with a world that's increasingly relaxing many Covid restrictions. For European businesses, "we talk about a complete readjustment of our view on China over the last six months," Wuttke told reporters at a briefing for the chamber's annual China position paper, released Wednesday. He said the lockdowns and uncertainty for businesses have turned China into a "closed"...
    A former Goldman Sachs analyst has detailed her experience inside the company's Manhattan headquarters in a memoir, including one incident where her colleagues ranked women on their 'f**kability.' Jamie Fiore Higgins, 46, explored her 17 years at the investment banking company through her memoir, 'Bully Market: My Story of Money and Misogyny at Goldman Sachs.' Higgins writes about the spreadsheet, in which she recounts one employee declaring, 'I want tit size, ass shape and leg length,' in addition to other moments of harassment and physical altercation. After removing one employee from an account because he was having an affair with the client, Higgins says he grabbed her by the throat and pinned her to the wall. 'If I could, I'd rip your f**king face off,' he yelled. Once she reported the incident to her boss, Higgins said that the employee would not be fired because her boss could not 'afford to lose his golf connections.'

    The pass was delivered with recognizable purpose and precision. Shotgun snap, quick play fake, then a short shuffle left and a decisive release. With his top receiver making a crisp break on a slant route, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a fastball into Lambeau Field’s north end zone Sunday night. Allen Lazard, with inside leverage on Chicago Bears rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon, snatched it with relative ease. Five-yard touchdown. Celebratory fireworks exploded in the fall sky. Then a small end-zone soiree broke out. Surrounded by teammates, Lazard used the football as a kettle and began pouring a few cups of a mystery drink. Offensive linemen Yosh Nijman and Jon Runyan Jr. took fake swigs from their imaginary cups, became woozy, then pretended to pass out in the end zone. Same for receivers Randall Cobb and Sammy Watkins. “Just drinking some tea,” Cobb told reporters after the game. It was a tongue-in-cheek nod to Rodgers’ summer revelation that he experienced an awakening during an ayahuasca tea high in 2020 in Peru, with the psychoactive drink taking him on a...
    An expert lip reader has revealed what Prince Harry said to Prince William as the brothers were taking their seats before the Queen's committal service. Jacqui Press, an expert lip reader, spotted the pair in conversation at around 4.20pm as they prepared for the service in St George's Chapel, Windsor. The heir-to-the-throne appeared to let Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle go in first to the pew as Prince William stepped aside for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. As Prince William was standing at the entrance to the front pew, Prince Harry asked him: 'Shall we go through first?' William saw his brother and said yes with a nod, before telling his wife the Princess of Wales: 'Let them go through first.'

    Like so many Chicago Bears coaches before him, Matt Eberflus came to the visitor’s news conference room inside Lambeau Field late Sunday in a dour state. Eberflus had a lopsided loss to digest and a boatload of concerning issues to sort through. His young and hungry team couldn’t survive on intangibles alone in Week 2, struggling to tackle and failing to generate much offensive momentum. On a prime-time stage, the Bears were exposed by the reigning NFC North kings as flawed, error-prone and clearly overmatched. A 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers landed like a cement pillar to the gut. “When this happens and you have adversity, it stings,” Eberflus said. “It hurts. And you have to soak that in.” Like so many Bears quarterbacks before him, Justin Fields fielded questions about the deficiencies of the offense he’s tasked with running. With the Bears netting only 48 passing yards on a perfect fall evening in a game they trailed by double digits for the final 34 minutes, Fields was asked what’s missing. “I’m not sure what’s missing in the...

    For the Mets to lock up the National League East, they’ll need the players that got them this far to carry them home. It’s an obvious sentiment, but it’s also most of what drives professional sports. The best teams are often the ones that have the best players, who in turn perform like they are indeed the best players. In the Mets’ clubhouse, that means five or six guys, two of which will have to come off the injured list before delivering the team to glory. Max Scherzer, the first of the injured stars, is apparently ready to go for Monday. His manager identified that date early in the week, stuck to it after Scherzer’s rehab start on Wednesday, and on Friday said that Scherzer’s demeanor in the clubhouse has made it clear that he’ll be ready. “I can tell by his face as soon as he comes through the door,” Buck Showalter said. “He’s getting ready for Monday. So far, so good.” Getting Scherzer back is a huge first step in outracing the Braves to the top of the...
    By Lucy Kafanov and Dalila-Johari Paul | CNN An Iowa judge’s ruling this week ordering a teenage girl — who was 15 when she killed a man she said raped her multiple times — to pay his family $150,000 in restitution has reignited conversations about what justice looks like for girls and young women who have experienced sexual violence. Pieper Lewis, who killed her alleged rapist in 2020, received a deferred judgment from Polk County District Judge David Porter after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter and willful injury. Lewis is just one of several teenagers — often of color — who have been legally penalized or convicted of killing their sex trafficker or assaulter in recent years in the US. Last month, California Gov. Gavin Newsom granted clemency to Sara Kruzan, who was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole as a teenager for killing a man who sexually abused and trafficked her in 1994. In Wisconsin, Chrystul Kizer is facing a life sentence for killing the man she said forced her into sex trafficking. After a state Supreme...
    A "spirit bear" in British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest.Ken Canning/Getty Images This story was originally published by Atlas Obscura and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. No one knows how long diesel had been seeping from a crack in the tanker truck, parked at an old cannery on the bank of Rivers Inlet, a fjord about 300 miles north of Vancouver in the heart of Wuikinuxv First Nations Territory. By the time somebody noticed, more than 2,000 gallons of fuel had leaked onto shore and into a waterway teeming with crab, salmon, and spawning candlefish. On February 15, 2021, within an hour of being notified about the impending disaster, members of the Wuikinuxv Coastal Guardian Watchmen program arrived on the scene, assessing and containing the spill. The next day, fellow guardians from the neighboring Heiltsuk Nation came with supplies and additional manpower. By the time provincial officers showed up three days later, 90 percent of the spill area had already been contained. “We were…frustrated” by rampant poaching and illegal logging in Kitasoo/Xai’Xais Nation territory. “So we bought a boat...

    Police are investigating after two women went to a Utah college football game topless this weekend, wearing body paint over their torsos in the shape of a tank top with red 'U' on it. Reports on KSL radio highlight how in Utah, there is a lewdness act that could make the incident a Class B Misdemeanor. Under Utah laws, Class B misdemeanors are punishable with fines of $1,000 or up to six months in jail. But there is also frustration that security at the University match didn't stop them from entering in the first place for Sunday's game.  Police are investigating two women who went to a Utah college football game topless The incident occurred on Sunday and the University has responded with a letter to those who attended the game - it also put the letter on its website  YouTuber Melea Johnson - a Utah alumni - was at the game with her husband and two children and in a lengthy Instagram post said that she was sat close to the two women.

    Eloy Jiménez’s numbers since the All-Star break have been among the best in baseball. Entering Tuesday, he ranked second in the majors with a .366 average and .435 on-base percentage after the break. He was third with a 1.031 OPS, sixth with a .596 slugging percentage, tied for sixth with 59 hits and tied for seventh with 10 home runs. Jiménez added to that home run total and José Abreu snapped the longest homerless stretch of his career in a 4-2 victory against the Colorado Rockies in front of 23,606 at Guaranteed Rate Field. “(Swinging at strikes) is one of the biggest things right now,” Jiménez said. “I am more disciplined than every year that I played here, and I feel good. “When you know you have good people behind you, they’re going to try to throw you around and see if you chase. That is something that I learned with all the years that I have. That’s the biggest key right now.” Jiménez hit a three-run homer in the first, his fourth in the last seven games. “He’s looking...
    A SHOCKING study revealed that first-time dads can suffer brain shrinkage that makes it “easier to connect with their kid.” Researchers discovered that fathers can lose a small percentage - about one or two - of cortical volume, with can affect mental function. 2A new study revealed that fathers lose about one to two percent of cortical volume in their brainsCredit: Getty In simple terms, they’re losing their minds, according to the Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid, Spain. “Studying fathers offers a unique opportunity to explore how parenting experiences can shape the human brain when pregnancy is not directly experienced,” the researchers wrote. The team was led by Magdalena Martínez-García, who normally focuses on the effects of women’s brains during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum periods. Studies in the past have shown a mother’s “pregnancy brain,” or short-term memory problems and absent-mindedness, is a very real phenomenon.

    Tony Blair today recalled how the Queen reminded him of her long reign after he became prime minister - by pointing out she met with Winston Churchill before the former Labour leader was born. Mr Blair, who was in Downing Street for a decade from 1997, spoke to US television about the monarch, including his 'surprise' at her death. He revealed she had been 'warm and humorous' when they had last met, but he said she had been physically frail and ''a problem with her leg'. Talking to NBC's Today show, he said: 'She was on great form. She had a problem with her leg, physically, and she was obviously frail - she was 96. 'But in terms of how she was she was in amazing form. She was warm and humorous. She kept a very keen and sharp eye on the country and how it was changing and what its people thought right up until the end.' Discussing their first meeting after he won his landslide 1997 election victory, he added: 'When I was appointed PM I remember she said...
    Prince William and Kate Middleton may have only officially become the Prince and Princess of Wales a few days ago - but the royal couple have long had a special connection with the country. In his first televised address to the nation since the death of the Queen on Friday night, King Charles III confirmed his son William would inherit his title of the Prince of Wales and his wife Kate would become Princess.  And sources said the new Princess ‘appreciates the history’ associated with the role of the Princess of Wales but wants to create her ‘own path’.  King Charles' own position as Prince of Wales wasn't without controversy - he was announced the title at the age of nine, and there were fears of nationalist violence at  his investiture ceremony in 1969.   However William and Kate's bond with the country has been ongoing for years - with Kate going on her first official royal engagement in Anglesey, where the couple would later have their first family home with George. Meanwhile they later took the nine-year-old and his seven-year-old sister Charlotte on their...

    Princess Anne made history this evening, as the first royal woman to take part in the Vigil of the Princes.   All four of Her Majesty's children gathered around her coffin today in a poignant evening vigil inside St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh. King Charles III, Anne, the Princess Royal, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward took their places by the royal coffin at 7.20pm this evening, following a short procession. Princess Anne, 72, who wore her navy ceremonial uniform, and Prince Edward, kept their eyes fixed towards the floor during the 20-minute vigil.

    They have a busy day ahead, so perhaps it's no wonder King Charles III was seen ushering his wife, Camilla, the Queen Consort, into their vehicle after making his historic first address to MPs and peers in Parliament today. His Majesty, 73, was captured gently grabbing Camilla, 75, by the arm and leading her towards their car when leaving Westminster Hall in London to fly to Edinburgh to the Palace of Holyroodhouse to inspect a guard of honour. As is traditional when the monarch arrives in Holyrood, the Ceremony of the Keys will take place before the King follows the hearse to St Giles' Cathedral - the first time he will have been seen with his mother's coffin, which arrived at the palace yesterday. At 7.20pm the King and his brothers, Prince Andrew, 62, and Prince Edward, 58, will perform the Vigil of The Princes.  The monarch had looked close to tears today as Parliament sang 'God Save the King' after he addressed MPs and peers for the first time following their own tributes to his late beloved mother Queen Elizabeth II.

    Many women experience cognitive struggles during pregnancy and after birth, in what is often referred to as 'baby brain.' Now, a new study suggests that men may experience brain changes following the birth of their first child too. Researchers from Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid found that first-time fathers lose a percentage or two of cortical volume after their child is born. While the reason for this remains unclear, the researchers suggest that the change may make it easier for fathers to connect with their child. A new study suggests that men may experience brain changes following the birth of their first child too 'Baby brain' is REAL Pregnant women are more likely to get lost when they drive as a result of 'baby brain', research suggested in 2016.

    Season openers can reveal a lot about a team, or not much at all. Narrow the sample size down to the first half of Week 1, and the findings get even more exaggerated, a test case of sample size variance. In the Ravens’ case Sunday, the first two quarters of a a 24-9 win over the New York Jets seemed to be realizing every worst fear about their offense and every high hope for their defense. Lamar Jackson was playing like a quarterback bracing himself against the weight of the NFL’s most scrutinized contract situation, and his teammates were playing like he could do it all himself. There were errant passes and dropped passes. There were missed reads and missed blocks. The offense was as dreary as the slate gray sky looming over MetLife Stadium. The Ravens’ saving grace was a defense that looked more like the units that have held up the franchise, more like the talented group that was envisioned when last season started. The line got after quarterback Joe Flacco. The linebackers flowed from side to side....

    Warring Princes William and Harry and their wives were reunited for a Royal walkabout yesterday amid extraordinary scenes at Windsor Castle. To the astonishment of crowds who were expecting only William and Kate, both couples emerged from a black Audi late in the afternoon to gasps, then murmurs of approval – followed by cheers. The quartet – once dubbed the Fab Four – then spent 40 minutes inspecting the floral tributes and shaking hands with well-wishers. Afterwards William drove them away, his wife next to him, the Sussexes in the back, in the direction of Frogmore Cottage where Harry and Meghan are staying. Whether this represented a reconciliation or was a hiatus in hostilities was anyone's guess. On arrival the brothers had appeared to exchange a few words, though Kate and Meghan stood silently apart. All four, dressed in black, then moved separately along the crowds, the Sussexes on one side, the new Prince and Princess of Wales on the other. Warring Princes William and Harry and their wives were reunited for a Royal walkabout yesterday amid extraordinary scenes at...
