|Why aren’t there more Kim Davises?||Judge sides with Brady on 'Deflategate,' NFL appeals (Yahoo Sports)|
Other county clerks have taken a controversial but less defiant path on gay marriage.
Tom Brady learned Thursday he will start the season on the field after a judge lifted the league's four-game suspension of the star quarterback for a scandal over deflated footballs, saying he was treated unfairly by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman criticized Goodell for dispensing ''his own brand of industrial justice'' as he found multiple reasons to reject the suspension one week before New England's Sept. 10 opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Super Bowl MVP has insisted he played no role in a conspiracy to deflate footballs below the allowable limit at last season's AFC championship game, a 45-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts.
|Biden says he's not sure if he will seek presidency||Utah spoils Harbaugh's debut, beating Michigan 24-17 (Yahoo Sports)|
ATLANTA (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday he was unsure if he will seek the Democratic presidential nomination, telling a Jewish audience that his decision will hinge on whether he and his family have the "emotional energy to run."
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Running back Devontae Booker had 124 combined yards and a touchdown and Utah spoiled Jim Harbaugh's Michigan coaching debut, beating the Wolverines 24-17 on Thursday night.
|Clinton aide invokes Fifth Amendment in probe||Arizona's Wright goes down with knee injury in season opener (Yahoo Sports)|
Bryan Pagliano has declined to cooperate in two federal probes involving Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Arizona All-America linebacker Scooby Wright injured his left knee in the 22nd-ranked Wildcats' opener against UTSA on Thursday night and did not return. Wright was injured in the first quarter and went to the sideline to have his knee worked on by Arizona's trainer. A former two-star recruit, Wright swept the Nagurski Trophy, Lombardi Award and the Bednarik Award as the nation's top defender last season.
|U.S. clerk jailed for gay marriage defiance; dispute goes on||Down 2 sets to none, Murray comes back to win at US Open (Yahoo Sports)|
|A Kentucky county clerk was jailed on Thursday for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and a full day of court hearings failed to put an end to her two-month-old legal fight over a U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding same-sex marriage. U.S. District Judge David Bunning found Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt then elicited a pledge from five of her six deputies to issue the licenses. The 49-year-old woman, who has emerged as a darling of social conservatives, has refused to issue licenses to any couples, gay or straight, since the U.S. Supreme Court in June ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry under the U.S. Constitution, citing her beliefs as an Apostolic Christian.|
Before they stepped on court, there was nothing to suggest Andy Murray would have any trouble against Adrian Mannarino in the U.S. Open's second round. Murray, after all, is seeded No. 3, owns two major championships including at Flushing Meadows in 2012, and had reached at least the quarterfinals at the last 18 Grand Slam tournaments he'd entered. Mannarino, meanwhile, is ranked 35th, has never won a tour-level title, and only three times in his career has even managed to win more than one match at a major.
|Shooting kills one, wounds two at community college in Sacramento||Rutgers' Kyle Flood to coach opener; 5 players arrested (Yahoo Sports)|
|One person was killed and two others wounded after a fistfight at a Sacramento community college escalated into a shooting, a school official and police said on Thursday. All three of the shooting victims were male, said Sacramento police Sergeant Doug Morse. Sacramento City College was placed on lockdown after the 4 p.m. shooting near the school's baseball field.|
Kyle Flood will coach Rutgers in its season opener against Norfolk State on Saturday despite an ongoing academic investigation and the arrest and suspension of five football players. Athletic director Julie Hermann said later Thursday that the arrested players had been suspended. Prosecutors announced Barnwell, defensive back Ruhann Peele, fullback Razohnn Gross and defensive back Delon Stephenson were charged with aggravated assault, riot and conspiracy to commit a riot for a fight in April that left a man with a broken jaw.

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.
