Puskar, File)

A week after losing out on Mike Babcock, the Buffalo Sabres went with another experienced Stanley Cup winner by hiring Dan Bylsma to become their next coach. The hiring was announced Thursday, after the former Pittsburgh Penguins coach spent a second consecutive day meeting with Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula and general manager Tim Murray in Buffalo. The hiring was delayed briefly after the Sabres were required under NHL rules to compensate the Penguins for hiring Bylsma because he was still under contract with Pittsburgh after being relieved of his duties a year ago.

Matt Bai: Hillary Clinton's not like the rest of us? Good!McIlroy shoots 80, risking another early exit at Irish Open (Yahoo Sports)

The “out of touch” mantra has been a perennial line of attack in our campaigns for several decades, at least.

Rory McIlroy can't seem to perform in front of a home crowd. The Northern Ireland star looked bewildered as he shot a 9-over-par 80 - his worst score of the season - in Thursday's opening round of the Irish Open. Taking advantage were Irish veteran Padraig Harrington and unheralded Maximilian Kieffer of Germany, who both shot 67 to share the lead.

Chip Kelly says LeSean McCoy was wrong to suggest he favors white players over black players and says he never considers race when he's building the Philadelphia Eagles' roster. ''We put a lot of time in looking at the characters and factors that go into selection and retention of players, and color's never been one of them.'' Kelly traded McCoy to the Buffalo Bills in March for linebacker Kiko Alonso. The two-time All-Pro and leading rusher in franchise history then questioned Kelly's motives in an interview with ESPN The Magazine earlier this month.


FBI launches probe into theft of U.S. taxpayer informationDjokovic, Nadal and Williams reach 3rd round of French Open (Yahoo Sports)

A general view of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) building in WashingtonThe FBI said on Thursday it had begun looking into the illegal access of the tax-return information of about 100,000 people disclosed by the Internal Revenue Service earlier this week. "The FBI has opened an investigation into the recently reported incident at the Internal Revenue Service and is working with our interagency partners to determine the nature and scope of this matter," a spokesman said. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday cyber criminals had sought to gain access to personal tax information 200,000 times from February to May, and were successful in about half of those attempts.

Novak Djokovic was more concerned with a loss of concentration than a loss of footing Thursday, as the top-ranked Serb reached the third round of the French Open by beating Gilles Muller 6-1, 6-4, 6-4. The eight-time Grand Slam champion, who has lost two French Open finals, slipped near the end of the second set and needed treatment for several minutes on his right groin area. When casually waiting for Muller's shot to land out, he just let the ball glance off his racket and lost the point.

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.

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.

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. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
