MOSCOW (Reuters) – A court on Thursday convicted five men of murdering Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, more than two years after he was shot dead near the Kremlin.
- NFL team owner sends out nude image of model early Thursday morning
- Irsay had said in previous days that his account had been compromised
Indianapolis Colts fans had their Twitter timeline spiced up early on Thursday morning after their owner’s account tweeted out a picture of a nude woman.
Whether Jim Irsay was frantically scouring the internet for porn is doubtful: on 16 June he warned he had been hacked, and a later tweet was blank and addressed to members of the media and the NBA’s Indiana Pacers.
Golden State Warriors basketball star’s appearance in the Ellie Mae Classic is borderline offensive to those battling in the tough world below the main tours
Imagine the scenario. Golden State Warriors are locked in a fierce play-off battle when Jordan Spieth – inspired by his brother’s basketball success and a capable player in his own right – decides he wants to feature in match five. Spieth’s overtures are accepted, thereby handing the golfer a key spot in another sport’s top domain.
Ludicrous, right? It certainly should be but while the circumstances are not identical there is cause to wonder about the legitimacy of the web.com Tour’s dispensation as given to Steph Curry. The Ellie Mae Classic in California will feature Curry – a basketball superstar and Under Armour icon who plays off two – after the Warriors player was handed a sponsor’s invitation. If it sounds like a vanity project and looks like a vanity project, it tends to be a vanity project.
- Revealed: Marc Kasowitz’s firm involved in real-estate sale to Trump son-in-law
- Loan relating to building’s purchase could fall under Mueller’s Russia inquiry
- Questions already raised about Kasowitz’s potential conflict of interest issues
The lawyer privately advising Donald Trump on the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election is head of a law firm that was involved in the sale of a prestigious piece of New York real estate to Jared Kushner, the US president’s son-in-law, in a deal that could fall under the spotlight of the same inquiry.
Marc Kasowitz, a member of the New York bar who has represented Trump in his business dealings for 15 years, was brought on board by the president last month to provide personal legal advice relating to the Russian inquiry now being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller. The appointment has placed Kasowitz at the center of the legal maelstrom over the investigation into potential collusion between Russia and elements of Trump’s presidential campaign.
- Crowd of 32,287 sees FC Cincinnati beat MLS’s Chicago Fire on penalties
- Miami FC, coached by Italian World Cup winner, beat top-flight Atlanta United
It was a night of shocks in the US Open Cup on Wednesday as two MLS teams fell to lower division opposition in the last 16.
FC Cincinnati, who knocked out top-flight Columbus Crew, in the previous round beat another MLS team, Chicago Fire, on penalties in front of a raucous crowd of 32,287 in Ohio. Bastian Schweinsteiger’s Fire could not break down Cincinnati over 120 minutes and for once a German was on the wrong end of a penalty shoot-out. Cincinnati hopes to have an MLS team when the league expands and Wednesday’s atmosphere showed the passion for soccer in the city.
