New cap inspires free agency sticker shock, no matter the logic

Boston Celtics’ Evan Turner celebrates his future. NBA fans have prepared for July 1, 2016 for more than 15 months, but the reality of the first day of free agency has brought shock and awe nonetheless.

Whereas USA Track and Field only takes athletes who finish in the top three in their respective events at the Olympic Trials, Jamaican athletes don’t face quite so much pressure. Jamaica will surely give Bolt the benefit of the doubt considering his remarkable run of success the past decade.

When you’re rolling like Cleveland sports teams are right now, nothing can stop you. Not even being involved in the craziest baseball game of the 2016 season in front of a raucous crowd at Rogers Centre on Canada’s Independence Day. It’s also the challenge they overcame, as they emerged with a franchise-record 14th consecutive victory by topping the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 in 19 innings. Where do we even begin with a game like this? Perhaps the ending? Cleveland scored its winning run in the 19th inning on a Carlos Santana home run.

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.

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.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

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.
