|How Trump could turn the presidency into a 'litigation circus'||No settlement: Goodell, Brady await 'Deflategate' ruling (Yahoo Sports)|
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady attended last-minute settlement talks between the NFL and its players union Monday before a judge announced he would decide the dispute over deflated footballs with a ruling in a day or two. Everyone involved ''tried quite hard'' to reach a deal in the controversy that has hung over professional football since New England easily won the AFC title game in January, U.S. District Judge Richard Berman said in federal court in Manhattan.
|A look at Trump University and a growing immigration crisis||Kirk Cousins to start season as Redskins QB (Yahoo Sports)|
Yahoo News Live has an investigation into Donald Trump’s one time Trump University. Yahoo News Global Anchor Katie Couric speaks to Yahoo’s Chief Investigative...
The Washington Redskins have made a quarterback change: Kirk Cousins will be the starter this season, not Robert Griffin III. ''We feel like at this time, Kirk Cousins gives us the best chance to win,'' coach Jay Gruden said, unseating Griffin, the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year. Although Gruden said that it's Cousins' job for the season, not just the Sept. 13 opener against Miami, the quarterback is not overconfident.
|Supreme Court rules against clerk in gay marriage case||Taylor named Bills starting quarterback over Manuel, Cassel (Yahoo Sports)|
MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday ruled against the Kentucky county clerk who has refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses, and the clerk will arrive at work Tuesday morning to face her moment of truth.
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who goes by the nickname ''T-Mobile,'' got the call to be the Buffalo Bills' season-opening starter. ''It came down to basically that explosiveness that Tyrod brings to us,'' Ryan said. Taylor won the job over former Bills starter and 2013 first-round draft pick EJ Manuel, and Matt Cassel, a 10-year journeyman who was acquired in an offseason trade with Minnesota.
|White supremacist aiming to kill Jews convicted in three Kansas murders||Fisher names Golson starting QB for No. 10 Florida State (Yahoo Sports)|
A man who admitted in court to wanting to kill Jews was found guilty on Monday of murdering three people, including a teenage boy, outside two Jewish centers in Kansas last year. A seven-man, five-woman jury took less than two hours to convict Frazier Glenn Cross, 74, on the three murders as well as on three counts of attempted murder for firing at other people during the same shooting spree in April 2014. Jurors will next decide if Cross should get the death penalty, as prosecutors are seeking.
After playing coy for the past couple weeks, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher ended the suspense on Monday of who will be his starting quarterback by announcing Everett Golson had earned the job. Golson, a graduate transfer from Notre Dame, beat out junior Sean Maguire. ''He came in, related to our players well and showed what kind of player he was,'' Fisher said of Golson.
|Daily pot smoking on U.S. college campuses at 35-year high: study||Williams into US Open 2nd round when injured opponent stops (Yahoo Sports)|
The number of U.S. college students smoking marijuana every day or nearly every day is greater than it has been in 35 years, according to a study released on Tuesday. Nearly 6 percent of college students reported using pot daily or near-daily in 2014, up from 3.5 percent in 2007 but less than the 7.2 percent recorded in 1980, the University of Michigan's Monitoring the Future study found. "It's clear that for the past seven or eight years there has been an increase in marijuana use among the nation's college students," said Lloyd Johnston, the study's principal author.
Even before Serena Williams set foot in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday night, her path through the U.S. Open to complete a true Grand Slam became a lot easier thanks to losses by other top women. Williams was out there for only 27 minutes and took 32 of the 37 points that were played. ''It was definitely different and bizarre,'' Williams said.

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.
