    The Green Bay Packers have an obvious need for a wide receiver, and one target they are linked to is seeing an increase in their stock. The Green Bay Packers enter Week 7 with a 3-3 record, and they are experiencing some troubles on offense. Specifically, the passing game. The wide receiver corps in Green Bay this season is drastically different, as Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are no longer with the team. With the Packers sitting at .500 and the rival Minnesota Vikings sitting atop the NFC North division, there is an opportunity for the team to make some upgrades by the Nov. 1 NFL trade deadline. Specifically, make an addition to their wide receiver depth chart. One name that they have been linked to is Chase Claypool of the Pittsburgh Steelers.Packers linked to Chase Claypool ahead of NFL trade deadlineThe Steelers are 2-4 on the season after their win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which subsequently ended their four-game losing streak. Claypool played a significant role in the victory, as he caught all seven of his targets for...

    SUVA, Fiji (AP) — Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare said Thursday that his country’s new security pact with Beijing would not allow China to build a military base on the South Pacific nation and make his citizens “targets for potential military strikes.” Sogavare struck an agreement with Beijing in April to provide security support. Details of the pact haven’t been made public but the deal has raised fears of a permanent Chinese military facility within 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles) of the northeast Australian coast. He used a meeting of Pacific island nation leaders Thursday in Fiji to strongly deny that his country would become a Chinese military foothold in the South Pacific. “The moment we establish a foreign military base, we immediately become an enemy. And we also put our country and our people as targets for potential military strikes,” Sogavare told reporters in the capital Suva. “There is no military base, nor any other military facility or institutions, in the agreement. And that’s a very important point that we continue to reiterate to the family in the region,”...

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa hit speedy wide receiver Tyreek Hill with two long completions during the Miami Dolphins’ minicamp practice Thursday. And afterward, Tagovailoa hit back at critics. The third-year quarterback, aware that there are often questions — particularly on social media — about his arm strength and deep passing ability, went on the offensive about his abilities following the practice. “Yeah, if you saw the third-to-the-last play we had, I don’t know if I could throw the ball downfield still, but by my account I think that might have been a touchdown to Tyreek,” Tagovailoa said. “So however you want to write down any of that to social media or whatever outlets you guys are with, you do so.” Tagovailoa’s two highlight passes to Hill during Thursday’s practice each traveled at least 45 yards in the air. The first was good for 55 yards and a touchdown; the second went for 56 yards. Tagovailoa had no completions of 50 yards or longer as a rookie in 2020 and three last season, though two — a...
    MO SALAH reveals he aimed to score 40 goals for Liverpool this season after helping the Reds into the Champions League final. Liverpool survived a scare against Villarreal after conceding their 2-0 aggregate lead in the first half of last night's second leg, before producing a brilliant comeback to win 3-2 in Spain. 1Mo Salah wants to play Real Madrid in the Champions League finalCredit: Getty Salah produced his 15th assist of the season for the first goal, scored by Fabinho, but failed to get on the scoresheet himself. The forward has 30 goals for the Reds and two for Egypt this season but his form has declined recently, scoring just three goals in his last 15 Liverpool matches. That means he needs an extraordinary run of ten goals in the last six games to achieve his target - if he achieves that Liverpool will likely pick up more silverware.

    Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had planned a second terror attack on the United States after orchestrating the airplane hijackings on 9/11. Documents confiscated by Navy SEALs after bin Laden's execution reveal how he had sought to terrorize American citizens again either via chartered plane or railway. 'Rather than hijack a plane, operatives should charter one for their next attack on the U.S. And adds if that's too difficult, they should target U.S. railways,' bin Laden wrote in a letter to he head of al Qaeda's international terror unit, according to Islamic scholar Nelly Lahoud. 'He wanted to have 12 meters (40 feet) of steel rail removed so that, this way, the train could be derailed,' Lahoud explained during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday on CBS. 'And we find him, explaining the simple toolkit that they could use.' 'You could use a compressor. You could use a smelting iron tool,' bin Laden instructed his followers. Thousands of bin Laden's personal letters and notes were confiscated 11 years ago by a team of two dozen Navy SEALs sent to Pakistan...

    Donald Trump's endorsement isn't worth much more than a hill of beans when it comes to fundraising. That's what many Trump endorsees are finding as their GOP opponents amass fundraising hauls that far outpace their own.   One of the starkest examples comes out of Wyoming, where Rep. Liz Cheney raised $2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021—more than quadrupling the cash haul of her Trump-backed opponent, Harriet Hageman, who brought in $443,000, according to Axios. The quarter proved to be Cheney's best ever, giving her a hefty advantage in the crowded GOP primary field she faces after earning Trump's undying ire over her vote to impeach him. The hefty war chest could also give Cheney room to maneuver should she find it necessary to run as an independent to save her seat. But Cheney isn't the only GOP candidate who has defied Trump and reaped campaign cash rewards as a result. In fact, several Republicans whom Trump has targeted over their impeachment votes have likewise outraised their rivals. Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska amassed $1.4 million last quarter, more...
    It might not sound like all that much: 47 percent of the country leaning toward the Republicans, 42 percent leaning toward the Democrats.  But those Gallup numbers are actually a disaster for Joe Biden’s party. In the first quarter of last year, the Dems actually enjoyed a 49-40 advantage. They control the White House, the House and (nominally) the Senate. So even though polls aren’t a perfect snapshot, that’s a 14-point decline in identification for the party in power.  It makes you think that for all the media warnings about Republicans hijacking the 2024 election, they might just win it the old-fashioned way, fairly and squarely. Maybe Democrats are fighting the last war, so worried about Donald Trump’s constant unproven claims about a rigged election in 2020 that they forfeit the presidency next time.  When you strip away all the distractions, Biden has done what almost every other modern president has done, which is misread his mandate and overreach on his agenda. Bill Clinton did it with such cultural issues as gays in the military. George W. Bush did it...
    HINDSIGHT is a wonderful thing, it allows you to easily look back at situations once they have happened and make a clear judgement. In terms of football, and more specifically Chelsea, hindsight is as clear as a freshly wiped window on a sunny day when it comes to the signing of Saul Niguez. 5Saul has endured a miserable time since arriving at Stamford BridgeCredit: Getty When Chelsea signed him I challenge anyone to tell me that they were against the signing and unhappy about it. Because I remember us Chelsea fans were pretty desperate to see this one over the line and why not? Despite his form not being great in his last season at Atletico Madrid, Chelsea were getting themselves an experienced Spanish international to provide cover in an area of the pitch they needed it, the deep 6 role. Saul had been playing out of position at Atletico, and we all gave him the benefit of the doubt when he joined Chelsea and hoped that he would succeed due to being played now in...
    The House Jan. 6 committee fired off another round of subpoenas Friday targeting people investigators say were involved in the planning of rallies leading up to the riot on Capitol Hill. Subpoenas were sent to six individuals, including two the panel said met with former President Donald Trump, seeking documents and testimony. The committee has so far issued 51 subpoenas in total.

    The organizer of the rally in support of the transgender Netflix employees has targeted comedian Dave Chappelle with a racist taunt, demanding to talk to “his master” Wednesday outside Netflix offices in Hollywood. Ashlee Marie Preston, who is a male-to-female transgender and apparently not a Netflix employee, lashed out at Chappelle while talking to reporters. “He’s clearly sold himself and since he can’t do the right thing, I’m here to talk to his master today and those are the people who sign the paycheck,” Preston said. The word “master” is regarded as offensive when used in conjunction with a black person due to its connotations of slavery. Watch below: Ashlee Marie Preston, who is also black, has a history of making inflammatory statements aimed at her ideological foes.

That didn’t leave many for six other players, with no other player seeing more than three targets. Some have expressed concern (seriously!) about the distribution, even though Hill and Kelce are the team’s best weapons. Mahomes, for his part, isn’t worried about the departure of Sammy Watkins affecting the proportion of passes going to Kelce and Hill. “To me, it’s just kind of going through the reads of the game and seeing what the defense kind of gives you,” Mahomes said Wednesday, via John Dixon of arrowheadpride.com. “This last week, they kind of left the middle of the field a little bit open, so I was able to hit Tyreek and Trav over the middle a lot.” Kelce and Hill combined for 280...

    President Joe Biden on Sunday will join his fellow G7 leaders in backing new conservation and emission targets to curb climate change before he heads to Windsor Castle for tea with The Queen. The president will focus on environmental issues on his last day at the three-day gathering of the world's wealthiest seven nations. He'll also hold a solo press conference.  Biden has spent his time in southern England reviving ties with European allies, pushing them to challenge China's growing economic might, and, in his words, showing 'America is Back.' The subtext: Biden is not Donald Trump. The G7 - Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and United States - were eager to hold their first physical summit since August 2019. Biden has sought to return America to the world stage after Trump's international isolationism and rebuild relations after Trump alienated European allies.   He made it a point to hold one-on-one with several world leaders, including Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Saturday, where he reaffirmed his support for the Tokyo Olympics.

    CAIRO (AP) — Yemen’s internationally recognized government said a Cabinet minister survived an attempt on his life in the southern city of Aden on Thursday, escaping unharmed from an explosion that targeted his convoy. A government statement said Minister of Civil Service and Insurance Abdel Nasser al-Waly was not harmed, describing the attack as “sinful and terrorist.” It was not known if anyone was hurt in the explosion. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blast. Yemen’s new prime minister, Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed, ordered an investigation. Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war since 2014, when the Iran-backed Shiite rebels — known as the Houthis — overran the capital, Sanaa, and much of the north. A Saudi-led coalition intervened months later and has been battling the rebels since 2015 to try and restore the internationally recognized government to power. The conflict has killed about 130,000 people and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations. The incumbent government was formed in December to end an internal rift with southern separatists, backed by the United Arab Emirates....

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Von Miller is speeding toward a return with Carolina on his mind. The Denver Broncos’ star pass rusher told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he’s targeting a Dec. 13 return in Carolina against the Panthers. That would be three months since Miller underwent surgery on Sept. 11 to repair a dislodged tendon in his left foot. “If I’m healthy enough to play, I’m going to play,” Miller said. “In my mind, I want to make it back and I want to play and I want to show the world some of the stuff I’ve been working on.” At 31, Miller appeared primed for a big season after an offseason fueled by a substandard 2019 and a recovery from his battle with COVID-19 in April. He was buffer than ever and had a terrific training camp. But Miller got hurt on the last play of a practice on Sept. 8 that was moved indoors because of a snowstorm. The offense was facing fourth-and-5 near the goal line and Miller said he wanted...
    ROME—Cardinal George Pell, the disgraced former Vatican No. 3, who was convicted and then acquitted of clerical sex abuse in Australia in April, will return to Rome just in time to help Pope Francis sort through the biggest financial scandal of his pontificate. In May, the Australian Royal Commission charged with investigating allegations of systemic clerical sex abuse, determined that Pell was well aware that children were being abused by members of the clergy in Australia but failed to use his power as a senior official to stop it. The Catholic News Agency reports that Pell, who has been living inside the protective walls of the archdiocese of Sydney, will fly to Rome on Tuesday in a “private capacity.” The timing of the return of the former prefect of the Vatican Secretariat of the Economy, coincides with a tawdry scandal involving the Vatican's former No. 2, Cardinal Angelo Becciu, 72—who was in Pell’s sights as he tried fruitlessly to clean up the Vatican’s byzantine and corrupt financial dealings before his fall from grace.Barbie Latza NadeauCorrespondent-At-Large@BLNadeauBarbie.Nadeau@thedailybeast.comGot a tip?

    (CNN)The tennis world waited seven months for the return of grand slams. Now, like buses, two have come along at once. Having been moved from its usual May start date, the French Open gets underway on Sunday, two weeks after the conclusion of the US Open and a week after the Italian Open, the traditional warmup event to Roland-Garros. While fans have been able to binge on near-wall-to-wall action in September, for players the situation has been rather more difficult to navigate as they have been forced to choose their movements wisely.Defending French Open champion Ashleigh Barty opted to skip both majors amid coronavirus concerns. Other players, such as 12-time French Open winner Rafael Nadal and 2018 champion Simona Halep, decided to pass on a trip to New York and instead focus on clay court preparation, whereas the likes of Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic chose to play both majors.Djokovic and Nadal are the top seeds and favorites in the men's draw, ahead of newly crowned US Open champion Dominic Thiem, a two-time finalist in Paris.

The 33-year-old announced earlier this month he was giving up the 205lbs belt after talks with Dana White. 3Jon Jones has revealed the reasons behind his decision to vacate the UFC light heavyweight titleCredit: Getty Images Bones had held the championship since reclaiming it for a second time by defeating Alexander Gustafsson in December 2018. His last title defence was against Dominick Reyes in February, which resulted in him earning a controversial split decision victory. Many hoped to see a rematch between the pair, but now there will be a clash between Reyes and Jan Blachowicz in September to determine a new light heavyweight king following Jones’ decision. The star has now taken to Twitter again to explain some further reasoning for giving up his crown. Jones tweeted: “I vacated the light heavyweight championship because I knew my heavyweight goals were going to take some time. “I wasn’t going to play games with the contenders and make people fight interim championship belts. There’s little...
    Alan Patricof, co-founder and managing director of Greycroft Partners LLC.Chris Goodney | Bloomberg | Getty Images Venture capitalist Alan Patricof is still investing in early-stage start-ups. At 85, he's now backing technology designed for people in their later stages of life. The founder of Greycroft and Apax Partners announced on Wednesday a new investment firm that he's calling Primetime Partners. The $30 million fund will back platforms and products for aging Americans, and invest in older entrepreneurs. Patricof is partnering with Abby Miller Levy, former president of Thrive Global, in the venture.   "I had another act in me, and had the energy to do something else. This market is really fertile territory," Patricof told CNBC in a Zoom interview. "This particular area really has caught my imagination and energy beyond anything I would have anticipated."  The New York-based duo met through Patricof's son, a classmate of Levy's from Harvard Business School. They had been independently pursuing the same idea of investing in products for an older cohort. Despite controlling the majority of the country's net worth, "a silver tsunami" of aging people has...
    ANTHONY JOSHUA has challenged Tyson Fury to dive into the "deep end" and finally earn his respect as a boxer. And the WBA, WBO and IBF champion says the two have "nothing to lose" from meeting in a Battle of Britain for the ages next year. 2Joshua says Fury needs to earn his respect by jumping into the ring with himCredit: Instagram @anthonyjoshua Joshua, 30, and WBC heavyweight king Fury, 31, are believed to have agreed a two-fight deal.

    The ongoing KRK vs Hansal Mehta debate on social media is taking an ugly turn every day. Recently the filmmaker started an online petition asking Amitabh Bachchan to stop following Kamaal R Khan on Twitter. Their feud had only intensified with time and Aligarh writer Apurva Asrani has now joined the war, albeit from the other side. While he understands KRK can be mean at times, but he’s not willing to be a hypocrite and ignore the other popular names in the industry while the less popular ones continue to be the new targets. While Hansal Mehta had earlier slammed KRK for his mean tweets on Sushant Singh Rajput, Apurva believes he’s not the only culprit in the industry. Instead, he’s willing to appreciate his guts for “putting his name on his opinions” rather than hiding in shadows and resorting to blind items. He has further slammed popular film critic and journalist Rajeev Masand for all ‘blind items’ against the late actor and tagged them as ‘vicious and cowardly’. The writer suggests further highlights the practice of following selective...
    Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty ImagesFantasy Football 2020: PPR wide receiver rankings (26-50)I’m back with the back half of my first set of wide receiver rankings. For the first 25, click here. Lamar Jackson has stated that he envisions himself throwing the ball more in 2020. This bodes well for his wide receivers, who were targeted on only 44.1% of passes, the second lowest rate in the league. As Lamar Jackson develops as a passer, he won’t have to rely on his tight ends as much, which made up 43.6% of his targets last year (1st in NFL). This change leaves room for Marquise Brown to feast this year, as he can expect a significant increase in usage as the team’s top wide receiver. If he gets a more consistent target share, a flyer on Brown could be a league-winner, and the risk is minimal at his ADP. That being said, he’s not guaranteed those additional targets, but even without them, he’s a WR3. 32 Brandin Cooks WR Houston Texans Projections: 106 targets, 68 receptions, 952 receiving yards, 6 TDs, 40 rushing...
    On Sunday, after Hollywood actor/leftist/Trump-hater Ron Perlman had segued from an argument with Florida GOP congressman Matt Gaetz to swerving and attacking Ohio GOP congressman Jim Jordan, posting a picture of Jordan and writing, “You’re lucky for this guy Matt. If it weren’t for him you’d be the ugliest politician walking,” Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a good friend of Jordan’s, fired back with relish, tweeting, “You talk good game when you’ve got Hollywood makeup & stuntmen.” The exchange started with Perlman targeting Gaetz and President Trump, tweeting, “US Soccer team called and you guessed it … said they couldn’t give any less of a f*** about what you two dipshits think. @realDonaldTrump @mattgaetz.” The US Soccer team called and you guessed it… said they couldn’t give any less of a fuck about what you two dipshits think. @realDonaldTrump @mattgaetz — Ron Perlman (@perlmutations) June 13, 2020 Perlman’s tweet came in response to Gaetz stating he was drafting legislation to get U.S. Soccer to reverse their decision to repeal Policy 604-1, which had previously required players to stand for the national...
    GENEVA (AP) - Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter is the target of a new investigation in Switzerland for suspected criminal mismanagement of a $1 million payment from soccer funds. Blatter has been notified by Swiss federal prosecutors he is an “accused person” over a loan FIFA gave in 2010 to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association, according to a document seen by The Associated Press. The 84-year-old Blatter has denied any wrongdoing during decades of financial scandals linked to soccer’s world governing body, though he was banned from the presidency and now risks being brought to trial in his home country.
