Whicker: Rams consider Jalen Ramsey to be heaven-sent

THOUSAND OAKS — Les Snead, the Rams’ general manager, has put his faith and his franchise into the hands of a unique trinity. When he speaks of Jalen Ramsey, his new cornerback, he keeps talking about Mom, Dad and God. “He has a skill set,” Snead said Wednesday. “Mom, Dad and God gave him length. You can get your hands on people at the line of scrimmage that other players can’t because Mom, Dad and God didn’t give them that length. “They also gifted him with the agility that others don’t have, a...

Rams make trades, sending cornerback Marcus Peters to Baltimore

The Rams announced Tuesday afternoon they have traded cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens, and acquired offensive lineman Austin Corbett from the Cleveland Browns in a separate trade. The Peters trade, in which the Rams get former UCLA linebacker Kenny Young and a 2020 draft pick, comes a day after their other starting cornerback, Aqib Talib, was lost for at least eight weeks with a rib fracture. The move set off speculation that the Rams are working to acquire a veteran cornerback,...

Better polling means sharper scrutiny. Is Warren ready?

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — When Elizabeth Warren campaigned in Nevada in February, Abbie Peters was there. Energy and enthusiasm for the Massachusetts senator was not. “It was early and she wasn’t as popular,” said Peters. Nearly eight months later, Peters, a retiree from California, was back again to see Warren. The message hadn’t changed. […]

Rams’ need to fix turnover deficit is one big takeaway from slow start

THOUSAND OAKS — It was the first minute of the Rams’ game in Seattle last Thursday night. They’d pinned the Seahawks’ offense deep in its own end by stifling a run and drawing a holding penalty. After a scrambling Russell Wilson completed a pass to Jaron Brown at the left sideline, L.A.’s Nickell Robey-Coleman ripped the ball out of the receiver’s hands, and Marcus Peters picked it up on a bounce. The forced fumble and recovery, cashed in with a field goal, boded well for the Rams because the co...

Rams’ Samson Ebukam gets new opportunity after Clay Matthews’ injury

THOUSAND OAKS — If a football player is going to be remembered for one thing, returning an interception and a fumble for touchdowns in a fantastic Monday night game wouldn’t be a bad one. But Samson Ebukam wants to be known as more than the defensive star of the Rams’ un-defensive struggle against the Kansas City Chiefs last November. “I don’t want to be known by one particular game. I want to be known for the type of player I am and how I play on the field,” Ebukam said Monday. The 24-year-old ...

Back to school for Grenada's Peters after shock javelin win

Grenada's Anderson Peters pulled off a shock win in the javelin at the world athletics championships on Sunday after an unpredictable event where Olympic champion Thomas Rohler failed to reach the final.

Appeals Court Takes Immunity Away From Cop Who Entered A House Without A Warrant And Killed The Family Dog (techdirt)

Qualified immunity has been stretched to cover a wide variety of rights violations, law enforcement misconduct, and excessive force deployments. Every so often, a federal court will refuse to extend this courtesy to sued officers, but these decisions are relative rarities. Every so often, officers engage in such egregious violations that no court is willing to give them a pass on their bad behavior. This case [PDF], handled by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, is one of those. It details a c...

Kartje: Rams should wait on mega-deal for Marcus Peters

THOUSAND OAKS — Last week, while in Hawaii for his foundation’s free youth football camp, the NFL’s most unpredictable cornerback tried his hand at predicting the weather. Marcus Peters, amateur meteorologist, did not disappoint. “The weather’s doing good, man,” a grinning Peters told the anchors on Hawaii NewsNow’s morning broadcast.

There's a wildly popular conspiracy theory that Facebook listens to your private phone calls, and no matter what the tech giant says people just aren't convinced it's not true (FB)

There's a widely held belief that Facebook uses smartphones to listen in on users, and then serve those users advertisements based on their speech. Facebook has repeatedly denied doing as much. Despite those denials from Facebook, and evidence from experts to the contrary, the belief is widely held and seemingly unshakable. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Hurricanes’ Justin Faulk Is Still Leading

He’s been there for years, just not in the spotlight. This leader on the Carolina Hurricanes has even been named captain in the past, albeit in a weird way.

An Italian Passion for Joy

  Two years ago a woman I didn’t know contacted me about an abandoned chapel dedicated to a saint I had never heard of in a Tuscan town I had never visited. Now her story is in LA PASSIONE: How Italy Seduced the World, and she and I are going on a “Passion for Joy” book tour. The woman is Rita Morgan Richardson, a French teacher in Nashville. The saint is Philip Neri, patron saint of joy, whose followers built places for the faithful to worship and sing together. The chapel in Castiglion Fiorent...
