Rams’ Jalen Ramsey wants to leave contract talk to others

Jalen Ramsey said Tuesday he’s “not worried” about whether his contract extension is in place before the Rams’ season opens. If that makes the cornerback’s first video-stream media session of training camp sound bland, well, it was except for the moment Ramsey angrily walked off the screen after being asked repeatedly about the preferred timing of a contract agreement. Repeatedly meaning three times. “My agent and the front office, they’ll handle all that,” Ramsey said — and then repeated the sa...

When Marquita Burnett heard Philadelphia was moving to the "green" phase of reopening, she was confused. She was pretty sure the city had already earned a green designation from Pennsylvania's governor (it had). The next thing she knew, the city was scaling back some of the businesses it had planned to reopen (namely, indoor dining and gyms). But it was still calling this phase "restricted green."

In states across the country, reporting the results from the pandemic-rocked elections in the spring and summer took days and even weeks longer than Americans are used to. There are se...
