• Ben Affleck DENIES Rumours That Jennifer Garner Split Was Because Of Margot Robbie

    Published: Mon, Jul 6, 2015

    Ben Affleck has worked with many absolutely gorgeous women throughout his career, says Yahoo, but of course the fact that he just so happened to be starring in a film alongside the stunning Margot Robbie at around the same time as he and Jennifer Garner announced their split lead to some speculation that Margot was the reason. Anyway, unsurprisingly, Ben’s camp has wasted no time in denying the vicious rumour, clearing Margot’s name of any wrongdoing as she is still very happy with her own long term boyfriend, Tom Ackerley.

    ANNE M. PETERSON, AP Sports Writer | Updated: 18 min ago

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — For a brief time Sunday night, Carli Lloyd's Wikipedia page listed her position as "President of the United States." More like Captain America. Lloyd scored three goals to lead the United States to a 5-2 victory over Japan for the team's record third World Cup title — and first since 1999. Lloyd's hat trick came in the match's first 16 minutes. When it was over, the captain of the U.S. team collapsed to her knees and pumped her fists. "I'm so proud and so zapped at the same time. It's a surreal moment," the 32-yard-old midfielder said. "It's been amazing. We just wrote history and brought this World Cup trophy home." Even the actual President chimed in with

  • Reggie Jackson and Enes Kanter remain linked

    Updated: 8 hr ago

    Reggie Jackson and Enes Kanter were involved in the same trade last February, disgruntled young players that once were looked upon as cornerstones but had fallen from favor with their franchises. Then Jackson and Kanter staged a derby determining which could be more impressive with their new teams. Jackson was good in 27 Detroit Piston games: 32.2 minutes (only 4.2 minutes more than he was playing in OKC) per game, but 17.6 points (up 4.8), 4.7 rebounds (up 0.7) and 9.2 assists (up 4.9). Meanwhile, Jackson’s shooting improved remarkably — his slash line of field goal percentage, foul shooting and 3-point percentage was .436/.796/.337 with the Pistons, .432/.861/.278 with the Thunder.

    JOS, Nigeria (AP) — Two bombs blamed on the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram exploded at a crowded mosque and an elite Muslim restaurant in Nigeria's central city of Jos, killing 44 people, officials said Monday.

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    BAGHDAD (AP) — An Iraqi Russian-made fighter jet accidentally dropped a bomb over a Baghdad neighborhood on Monday, killing at least 12 people on the ground, Iraqi officials said. The plane — one of several Sukhois used by Iraq in the fight against the Islamic State group — was returning to base when the accident happened. Military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Saad Maan Ibrahim, told The Associated Press that a technical failure caused the Sukhoi jet to malfunction and drop the bomb, which hit a number of houses in the Iraqi capital's eastern neighborhood of New Baghdad. Three children and two women were among the 12 killed, a police officer at the scene and a medical official at a nearby hospital said.

  • South Carolina lawmakers return for Confederate flag debate

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — While it appears there's broad support in the South Carolina Legislature to bring down the Confederate flag, the depth of that support will get its first test this week as lawmakers return to Columbia to come up with a specific plan. The General Assembly returns Monday to discuss Gov. Nikki Haley's budget vetoes and what to do with the rebel flag. A survey of lawmakers shows two-thirds of them support bringing down the flag. But there are unresolved issues like when and how to bring down the banner flying on a pole by a monument to Confederate soldiers in front of the capitol and whether to put another flag in its place. Haley and civil rights leaders don't want any flag put back up on the pole.

  • Most markets drop after Greek results, but China rises

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    TOKYO (AP) — Shares tumbled Monday after Greece's voters vehemently rejected conditions set by the country's international creditors, deepening doubts over its future in the 19-nation eurozone. China's benchmark, the Shanghai Composite index, rebounded from last week's heavy losses after regulators and the securities industry intervened to prop up the markets, closing 2.4 percent higher at 3,775.91. Greece's debt problem has long overshadowed the markets and with a European summit expected Tuesday, the implications of Sunday's "no" vote remain unclear. So the initial response to the Greek referendum was negative but not panicked. In early trading, Britain's FTSE 100 slipped 0.7 percent to 6,543.09, while Germany's DAX
