    Lower levels of professional baseball, as well as the upcoming World Baseball Classic, will have a radical rule change. When games reach extra innings, teams will begin their at-bats with a man already on second base. If it works well, the rule could eventually work its way to MLB.

    Britain's biggest supermarket chain is cutting the cost of its female razors to match the same product sold to men. Tesco said it had come under pressure from British lawmaker Paula Sherriff after it was found to charge twice as much for pink disposable twin-blade razors as blue ones. The products are identical excepts for color and price. Tesco had defended the pricing by arguing that it sells many more men's razors, making it easier to keep prices low.

    Even Debbie Wasserman-Schultz knows Hillary Clinton will need to be carried to the finish line. While trying to whip up a lethargic crowd in Coral Springs, Florida on Friday, the woman who paved the way at the DNC for Clinton’s nomination, said her supporters will have to carry Hillary on their shoulders to the White House. “Let’s get this place wound up!” Schultz yelled, trying to fire up the crowd. “I want to hear my people down here in south Florida,” she said. “I know you have a little more adrenaline than I’m feeling in this room right now, don’t...

    The Dixie Chicks kicked off their DCX MMXVI World Tour Friday in Cincinnati by performing in front of a massive backdrop showing Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump with devil horns on his head and a satanic mustache and goatee. Last night’s politically-charged performance wasn’t the first time the Texas-based country music band used their celebrity status to take shots at a major Republican party leader. During a performance in London in 2003, Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines told the crowd that she was “ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas.” Maines’ attack on President George...

    The release Tuesday by the National Archives of a fresh trove of documents detailing the Clinton administration's dealings with billionaire Donald Trump could become the latest fuel for flame-throwing in an already incendiary 2016 presidential race. ADVERTISEMENT The documents include: a signed copy of Trump's “The Art of the Deal,” delivered to a top aide to then-President Clinton; logs of Trump’s invitations to the Clinton White House; and an entry about a Trump Towers photo-op with the president. The files come at a sensitive time in the Republican presidential race, and could be used by Trump’s top rival Texas Sen....

    'Christmas dump' incoming with more 'interesting' Sony Pictures data Months before the hacker intrusion on Sony Pictures' network, analyst firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) performed an analysis on the company's security, and found it lacking. More than 100 devices were found to be unmonitored by corporate security following an incomplete transition from a private security firm to an in-house team. As a result, any Sony response to network intrusion would be, in the words of the auditors, "slow, fragmented, and incomplete, if it would even happen at all." However, corrective actions proposed by PWC seemingly went undone, which left the doors to...

Invoking the apparations of Our Lady Queen of Higher Criticism, the Pope stated: While the ordinary magisterium from the very day of the Church's founding 1,981 years ago this past April has been most clear and constant, nevertheless we are most grieved at the dissemination of the "Errors of Alabama,"...

    National Labor Relations Board lawyers okayed a major union's practice of paying people to protest against Walmart in a legal memorandum earlier this month. The federal labor law enforcement agency said the practice of paying workers $50 apiece to join protests “did not constitute unlawful … coercion of employees.” In a Nov. 15 memorandum from the NLRB's general counsel office regarding the so-called “Black Friday” protests staged by United Food and Commercial Workers against the nonunion retailer last year, the NLRB lawyers determined that the UFCW's offer of $50 gift cards to anyone who showed up to protest “was a...

What he has not done is publicly address the violent upheaval in Cairo. That is not to say Mr. Obama is uninvolved.

It is true that some speculation in this direction has shown up on the internet in the past. These rumors have been given credence that few if any of those whose stay at Columbia coincided with Obama can remember him. Some have speculated that Obama did not attend Columbia at all; others, that he connected with various others who had Communist leanings, such as William Ayers, or even Cloward and Piven, and was forced to conceal his...

    NEW ORLEANS — Opposing players haven't had much luck slowing return ace Devin Hester, but opposing team owners did so Tuesday when they passed a rule that will make it more difficult to return kickoffs. The Bears steadfastly opposed the proposal to move kickoffs from the 30-yard line to the 35 and voted against it to no avail. Kickers will find it much easier to reach the end zone and force the returner to settle for a touchback as opposed to risking a big return. It is anticipated the touchback rate could more than double to near 40 percent. Coach...
