|Tentative agreement on Iran sanctions relief||Tigers' Cabrera on DL for 1st time, out 6 weeks (Yahoo Sports)|
World powers and Iran have reached tentative agreement on sanctions relief for the Islamic Republic, among the most contentious issues in a long-term nuclear agreement that negotiators hope to clinch over the next several days, diplomats told The Associated Press on Saturday.
Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera will be sidelined with a calf injury for at least six weeks after the Tigers placed the AL batting leader on the disabled list for the first time in his career. The two-time AL MVP pulled up while breaking for second on an attempted hit-and-run in the fourth inning of Friday's 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. An MRI showed a strain of his calf muscle but no injury to his Achilles tendon.
|Tunisia's president declares state of emergency after hotel attack||Dustin Brown loses at Wimbledon 2 days after beating Nadal (Yahoo Sports)|
By Tarek Amara TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi declared a state of emergency on Saturday to give his government more powers following an Islamic militant attack on a beach hotel, where 38 foreign tourists, mostly Britons, were killed. Tunisia's emergency law temporarily gives the government more executive flexibility, hands the army and police more authority, and restricts certain rights such as the right to public assembly. The attack on the Sousse beach resort last Friday followed a gun attack on the Bardo museum in Tunis in March - two of the worst militant assaults in Tunisia's modern history, and a pressing threat to its vital tourist industry.
The curse of beating Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon has struck again. Dustin Brown, the German qualifier with the dreadlocks who surprisingly beat the two-time Wimbledon champion in the second round on Centre Court, lost Saturday in his very next match. ''Obviously having the pleasure and being able to play on Centre Court and then to play a match like that (on Thursday), doesn't make a difference if I lost today or not, no one will ever be able to take that away from me,'' said Brown, who lost to 22nd-seeded Viktor Troicki of Serbia 6-4, 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-3.
|July Fourth brings worries over security, sharks, wildfires||Dempsey, Chandler score as US beats Guatemala 4-0 (Yahoo Sports)|
The public is asked to remain vigilant for possible threats following recent calls for violence by Islamic State leaders.
Clint Dempsey wants to look ahead to helping the U.S. defend its CONCACAF Gold Cup title and not back to his confrontation with a referee that caused American coach Jurgen Klinsmann to replace the fiery forward as captain for the tournament. Dempsey converted a penalty kick in his return from a suspension, Timmy Chandler scored his first international goal and the United States routed Guatemala 4-0 Friday night despite some sloppy play in an exhibition ahead of the Gold Cup. Dempsey was suspended for three games by Major League Soccer for the confrontation on June 16 in Seattle's fourth-round loss to Portland in the U.S. Open Cup.
|Yes or no? What Greece's landmark vote might bring||Angels win 8-2 in 1st game vs. Texas since trading Hamilton (Yahoo Sports)|
LONDON (AP) — On his 10-year trip home, the Greek hero Odysseus at one point had to steer his ship and crew down a narrow stretch of water menaced on opposite sides by two sea monsters, Scylla and Charybdis.
The way Angels manager Mike Scioscia looked at things, there really wasn't anything unusual seeing Josh Hamilton playing for the other team. ''I don't think any of us gave it a thought,'' Scioscia said after the Angels' 8-2 win at Texas on Friday night. ''Really, we played against Josh for a long time, it's not like this is something new.
|Clinton warns Iran nuclear deal won’t solve threat||AP sources: Kings agree to deals with Rondo, Belinelli (Yahoo Sports)|
The Democratic presidential candidate tells voters that Tehran is still "the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism."
After missing targets at the start of free agency, the Sacramento Kings finally filled out their backcourt Friday. The Kings reached agreements with point guard Rajon Rondo and shooting guard Marco Belinelli, securing the two positions the team coveted most this summer. Belinelli's contract is for $19 million and three years, a second person familiar with that deal said.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
