Judge rules for Tom Brady, overturns four-game deflate-gate suspensionJudge lets Brady play, ruling against NFL in 'Deflategate' (Yahoo Sports)

No settlement: Goodell, Brady await 'Deflategate' rulingJudge Richard M. Berman offered his ruling of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's appeal in the deflate-gate controversy.


At least Tom Brady sees the humor in the Deflategate scandal.

A federal judge let the air out of ''Deflategate'' Thursday, erasing New England quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for a controversy the NFL claimed threatened football's integrity. Berman said Goodell went too far in affirming punishment of the Super Bowl winning quarterback. Brady has insisted he played no role in a conspiracy to deflate footballs below the allowable limit at last season's AFC championship game.


France confirms wing part found on Reunion is from MH370Ohio State: QB Jones 'doing fine' after hospital examination (Yahoo Sports)

Police on Reunion island carry a wing part from flight MH370 on July 29, 2015French prosecutors confirmed Thursday that a wing part found on a remote Indian Ocean island was from ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a month after tests on the flaperon began. "It is possible today to say with certainty that the flaperon discovered on Reunion island on July 29 came from flight MH370," Paris prosecutors said in a statement, confirming claims made by Malaysia's prime minister last month. The disappearance turned into one of the biggest mysteries in the history of aviation, sparking a colossal hunt in the Indian Ocean based on satellite data which hinted at MH370's possible path.

Ohio State says quarterback Cardale Jones is ''doing fine'' after he was examined at a hospital Wednesday night.

Ohio State released a statement Thursday saying Jones was examined at the OSU Wexner Medical Center, but did not say for what.


Hungary police prise migrants from train tracks; dead boy's image shocks EuropeKershaw's 15 Ks lead Dodgers over Giants 2-1 (Yahoo Sports)

Migrants storm into a train at the Keleti train station in BudapestBy Marton Dunai and Ece Toksabay BICSKE, Hungary/MUGLA, Turkey (Reuters) - Migrants forced from a train threw themselves onto railway lines and scuffled with helmeted riot police in Hungary on Thursday as politicians across Europe struggled to respond to public opinion appalled by images of a drowned 3-year-old boy. France said European countries must be required to accept their share of refugees, proposing what would potentially be the biggest change to the continent's asylum rules since World War Two. Europe's worst refugee crisis since the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s has strained the European Union's asylum system to breaking point, dividing its 28 nations and feeding the rise of right-wing populists.

Once Dodgers manager Don Mattingly crossed the foul line without signaling the bullpen in the ninth inning, Clayton Kershaw knew he was safe to finish off the San Francisco Giants. Kershaw assured Mattingly he was just fine and he proved it, striking out Marlon Byrd to close out a 2-1 victory Wednesday night that increased the Dodgers' NL West lead to 6 1/2 games. ''These guys are great hitters,'' Kershaw said.


Kentucky clerk faces judgment day in same-sex marriage disputeFeeling 'tight,' Serena Williams moves forward in Slam bid (Yahoo Sports)
By Steve Bittenbender ASHLAND, Ky. (Reuters) - A county clerk in Kentucky who refuses to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples on religious grounds heads to U.S. federal court on Thursday where a judge could hold her in contempt for defying his order to do so. Lawyers for Kim Davis, the elected Rowan County clerk who is an Apostolic Christian, on Wednesday asked U.S. District Judge David Bunning to temporarily block his order requiring her to issue marriage licenses while she appeals. Davis has refused to issue licenses to any couples, gay or straight, since the U.S. Supreme Court in June ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry under the U.S. Constitution, citing her religious beliefs.

The enormity of what is at stake for Serena Williams at the U.S. Open - the first true Grand Slam in tennis in more than a quarter of a century - hit her Wednesday. ''Today, I was a little tight,'' Williams said. Williams trailed 5-3 in the first set, finally broke for 5-all, but then needed to erase a 4-0 deficit in the tiebreaker.


Judge tosses Tom Brady's 'Deflategate' NFL suspensionRG3 makes first comments since losing Redskins QB job (Yahoo Sports)

New England Patriots quarterback Brady exits the Manhattan Federal Courthouse in New YorkBy Joseph Ax and Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady's "Deflategate" suspension was thrown out by a federal judge in New York on Thursday, following a seven-month standoff between the National Football League and its players union. U.S. District Judge Richard Berman vacated NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's decision in July to uphold Brady's four-game suspension over his alleged role in a scheme to deflate footballs used during a January playoff victory. The ruling cleared the way for Brady to take the field on Sept. 10 in the Patriots' season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers at home.

Robert Griffin III made his first public comments since losing his job to Kirk Cousins, but didn't address the Redskins' starting quarterback situation. Redskins coach Jay Gruden chose Cousins as the starter on Monday following Cousins' strong performance in Saturday's preseason victory against Baltimore. Griffin, originally chosen the starter last winter, was ruled out of that game while in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
