    The first part of the two-part "The Voice" Season 10 finale aired Monday night on NBC, and country-soul finalist Adam Wakefield brought plenty of Oklahoma spirit to his last round of competitive performances. The four finalists - Wakefield, of Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton's team; Alisan Porter, of Christina Aguilera's team; Laith Al-Saadi, of Adam Levine's team; and Hannah Huston, of Pharrell Williams' team - each performed an original song, a cover and a duet with their coach. For the first duet of the night, Wakefield and Shelton sang “The Conversation” by Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr. They sounded like kindred spirits singing together.

  • Steven Adams accustomed to low blows: He played rugby

    Berry Tramel | Updated: 6 hr ago

    Growing up in New Zealand, rugby was Steven Adams’ first athletic love. Now you know why he seems unfazed by all the mayhem around him. Adams has taken low-blow shots from Draymond Green in each of the last two games of the Western Conference finals. That’s the progression from earlier in Adams’ career, when he absorbed a variety of hits, in more politically correct places, from opponents frustrated at Adams’ physicality. But NBA basketball is square dancing compared to rugby, which in terms of physicality is American football without pads. Heck, just for fun, I googled “rugby” and “low blows”, just to see what I would get. The first thing that popped up was this headline:

  • The Morning Brew: Experts say ban on texting and driving doesn't go far enough

    Juliana Keeping | Updated: 6 hr ago

    Tuesday is here. Have coffee, read news. Does the Texting and driving ban do enough to stop distracted driving? Well-meaning Oklahoma lawmakers pushed for years to pass a ban on texting and driving in the Sooner state, an effort to improve safety on roads and highways. Detractors said the same thing year after year: We already have a distracted driving law on the books. But under the state's existing "inattentive" driving statute, there typically needs to be a crash before a ticket can be issued, making it a less-than-stellar

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    TOKYO (AP) — European stock markets rose on Tuesday, despite jitters in Asian trading, and the British pound rose as market expectations faded of an exit from the European Union. KEEPING SCORE: France's CAC 40 added 1.7 percent to 4,397.39, and Germany's DAX gained 1.5 percent to 9,989.95. Britain's FTSE 100 rose 1 percent to 6,197.51. U.S. shares were set to head higher, with Dow and S&P futures both up 0.5 percent. BREXIT WATCH: The pound rose 0.9 percent to a near-month high of $1.4609 as bookies slashed the odds on Britons voting to remain in the EU in a referendum on June 23. Concern over the potential economic damage of an EU exit, or Brexit, had pushed the pound to a seven-year low against the dollar in February.
