Cody Bellinger, Justin Turner out of Dodgers’ lineup with leg injuries

LOS ANGELES — A big chunk of the Dodgers’ offense is day to day. Both Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner were out of the starting lineup Tuesday with leg injuries that might or might not sideline them for longer. Bellinger was hit in the right knee by a pitch in the third inning of Monday’s game. He was in the outfield Tuesday afternoon jogging around the perimeter of the warning track to test the knee. The results were not good enough to get him in the lineup. “Could he play? Possibly,” Dodgers m...

Bad Faith Actor

I’ve mentioned a few times Bill Barr’s history of trying to cover up Republican scandals and whip up Democratic ones. But until yesterday I didn’t know of this, yet another example of Barr’s corrupt history. It’s actually an earlier “summarizes the principal conclusions” memo as part of a different cover-up, back 30 years ago. From Ryan Goodman at … On Friday the thirteenth October 1989, by happenstance the same day as the “Black Friday” market crash, news leaked of a legal m...

Is It Journalism? WikiLeaks’ Status In Media World Complex

NEW YORK (AP) — After the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London, his lawyer was quick to characterize it as an assault against the rights of journalists all over the world who seek to uncover secrets. But was it quite that clear? Does WikiLeaks do journalism, or is it something else? The answer wasn’t evident when the organization burst into public consciousness at the top of this decade with the release of government documents about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It seems e...

‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain Explodes at Sunny Hostin for Defending Julian Assange

The arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange hit The View’s Meghan McCain hard on Thursday morning. “The politics of this have always been completely hypocritical on both sides,” McCain said, noting that President Obama’s attorney general Eric Holder declined to prosecute Assange on the basis that WikiLeaks is essentially a “journalistic” organization. “This is something that a lot of people who have put national security first, and I put myself in that category, have been warning about and wa...

The truth about a true frog: Unknown Costa Rican frog hidden amongst a widespread species

Known to science since 1857, a common species of frog found from north-eastern Honduras through to central Panama, turns out to have been keeping its 'multiple identities' a secret. According to herpetologists from the University of Plymouth and UCL, who recently used DNA barcoding on the species, showed that what we currently call Warszewitsch's frog is indeed a group of "cryptic" species. Their study is published in the open-access journal ZooKeys.

U.S. to face old foe Trinidad & Tobago in CONCACAF Gold Cup

LOS ANGELES — The last time the U.S. men’s national soccer team played a competitive match, Trinidad & Tobago stunned the Americans on an October night in the West Indies.
