Nearly nine years after the 2011 meltdowns of three reactor cores at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Plant, radioactive water continues to...

Paul George’s return to Oklahoma City spoiled by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s 32 points

Paul George's return to Oklahoma City was spoiled by a player the Thunder got back when they traded him. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander matched his career high with 32 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 118-112 on Sunday night. George, who finished third in the MVP voting last season, was sent to the Clippers for Gilgeous-Alexander and Danilo Gallinari in a deal that began the restructuring of the Thunder roster.

This was early October, days after a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears dropped Minnesota to 2-2, and put the Vikings' disappointing offense, which mustered a mere 222 yards in the loss, in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

Review: 'Mr. Robot' powers off with a finale that's weird even by 'Mr. Robot' standards

After a bounce-back year, "Mr. Robot" served up a finale that was weird even by the standards of "Mr. Robot." While the series lent itself to that -- living extensively, as it does, inside one character's head -- it was a reminder that while this show flamed very brightly, four seasons was too much for it to consistently sustain.
