  • 24 successful people who wake up really (really) early

    Published: Mon, Jul 6, 2015

    They say the early bird catches the worm, and research suggests there might be some truth to the old adage.   Waking up with (or before) the sun allows executives like AOL's Tim Armstrong and Pepsi's Indra Nooyi to get a head start on the day, knocking out tasks before the rest of the world has rolled out of bed.   Those "extra" hours also give them a chance to do some creative thinking, fit in a workout, and spend time with family.

    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.

  • Global markets slide after Greek 'no' vote

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    LONDON (AP) — Stock markets and oil prices fell Monday after Greece's voters overwhelmingly rejected reform proposals from its international creditors, a verdict that's reinforced fears the country may be heading out of the euro currency. Still, the falls are not as dramatic as many had feared, something analysts are crediting to the resignation of the Greek finance minister, which might help bailout talks resume. In Sunday's referendum on creditor proposals, 61 percent of Greeks voted "no" — a much higher proportion than anticipated. Many in the markets fear that the decision has pushed Greece one step closer to the euro exit door. So-called "Grexit" is considered to be one of the biggest risks facing the global economy.

  • Carli Lloyd becomes Captain America for US women

    ANNE M. PETERSON, AP Sports Writer | Updated: 1 hr 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: 9 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.

    LONDON (AP) — Rory McIlroy injured his left ankle while playing soccer, leaving the world's No. 1 player in doubt of defending his British Open title next week at St. Andrews. In a shocking start to the week, McIlroy posted a photo on Instagram showing him on crutches with a walking boot on his left ankle. He said it was a "total rupture" of an ankle ligament and the joint capsule from kicking around a soccer ball with friends in Northern Ireland. "Continuing to assess extent of injury and treatment plan day by day," McIlroy said on the post. "Rehab already started.... Working hard to get back as soon as I can."

  • Fugitive African warlord Joseph Kony is said to be sickly

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — The fugitive leader of the Lord's Resistance Army is sickly and in retreat from an international manhunt that includes U.S. forces, a Ugandan military spokesman said Monday, citing the accounts of recent defectors who are backing up reports that the rebel group is in decline. Joseph Kony is possibly suffering from diabetes, according to defectors who surrendered to Ugandan troops last month in Central African Republic, said Lt. Col. Paddy Ankunda. That account is probably true, he said, because Ugandan intelligence over the years "also indicates that Kony has diabetes." Kasper Agger, a researcher with the watchdog group Enough Project, said he receives many reports of Kony's failing health but it is i
