Marc Spears said players "aren't sure they want to stay in the bubble" as discussions around using their platform and leverage advance beyond Wednesday's three-game boycott. Players from all teams in the bubble were invited to a meeting set for Wednesday night to discuss their next steps. The Milwaukee Bucks were scheduled to play the Orlando Magic in Game 5 on Wednesday afternoon. The Bucks opted to boycott the game to protest the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis. "We're tired of the killings and the injustice," Bucks guard George Hill told The Undefeated of Milwaukee's decision not to play. The Magic determined they would refuse a win by forfeit in the 3-1 series, and the NBA decided to postpone all three games scheduled for Wednesday. "The NBA and the National Basketball

Argentina daily COVID-19 cases top 10,000 for first time

BUENOS AIRES, Aug 26 - Argentina posted a record daily rise of 10,550 confirmed COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, the health ministry said, taking the total caseload to 370,188 as the South American nation struggles to rein in the spread of infections while trying to ease open its crisis-hit economy. The grains producer, which imposed a strict lockdown in March that initially helped slow the spread of the virus, is now fast catching up with other hard-hit countries in the region, including neighbor Chile where new infections have slowed. Latin America has become the epicenter of the global pandemic, with the highest number of infections and deaths, while the region's economy is set to plunge sharply this year pushing millions of people into poverty. The nightly report showed there had been 276 new COVID-19 fatalities in the 24-hour period since the previous evening's count, taking the total to 7,839. The government of center-left President Alberto Fernandez extended lockdown restri

More than 100,000 sign MailOnline's Last Night of the Proms petition urging the BBC to immediately reinstate Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia

More than 100,000 people have signed the MailOnline petition urging the BBC to reverse its censorship of Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia at the Last Night of the Proms. Bosses at the broadcaster are under fire from across the political spectrum after caving in to politically-correct critics who are offended by the much-loved anthems - because they are 'racist'.   MailOnline has launched a petition that will be sent to Director General Lord Hall calling on him to reinstate the singing of both songs with immediate effect.  As it stands, the patriotic songs will  be played by an orchestra only on September 12 - supposedly because the lack of an audience will diminish their impact. But with singers still performing God Save the Queen and Jerusalem, there is no justification for the ban.  Dame Vera Lynn's daughter today said her mother would still be signing Land of Hope and Glory if she was alive and branded the BBC's decision as 'daft'.

RNC speech serves as farewell address for Kellyanne Conway

Image
WASHINGTON - Kellyanne Conway is making her exit. One of the longest-serving advisers to President Donald Trump spoke of "everyday heroes" on Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention. But it was also something of a farewell address as she steps away, she said, to spend more time with her family. That's a favorite cloak in Washington for power brokers forced to step down from their jobs. But in Conway's case, a family crisis has been playing out on Twitter, with her marriage to Trump critic George Conway the object of much fascination inside the Beltway. "This is completely my choice and my voice," Kellyanne Conway said in her announcement on Twitter, adding that for the couple's four children, "it will be less drama and more mama." George Conway, who used the platform to attack Trump as mentally unfit for office, said he will step away from The Lincoln Project and take a hiatus from social media. Trump's victory in 2016 made K
