    Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is keeping mum on the recently leaked draft opinion that signals the pending overturning of nearly 50 years of precedent surrounding abortion access in the United States. During a virtual speech at George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School in northern Virginia Thursday evening, Alito declined to answer an audience member's question about the relationship between the nine justices on the high court following the monumental leak of the draft. SUPREME COURT PREPARES FOR FIRST CONFERENCE SINCE LEAKED ABORTION OPINION “This is a subject I told myself I wasn’t going to talk about today regarding, you know, given all the circumstances,” Alito responded, according to the Washington Post. “The court right now, we had our conference this morning. We’re doing our work," Alito said. "We’re taking new cases. We’re headed toward the end of the term, which is also a frenetic time as we get our opinions out." “So that’s where we are,” Alito said, noting the high court is slated to complete its term toward the end of June or by early July. Alito's...
    Justices on the Supreme Court are preparing to meet on Thursday for their first conference amid fallout from the leaked draft opinion that, if published, would erode abortion access in roughly half of the nation. The leaked draft opinion, authored by Justice Samuel Alito, incited protests outside the high court and throughout the nation on May 2 and in the succeeding days. Since then, protesters organized outside Alito's house on Monday and amassed outside the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend. “There are concerns for the integrity of the institution," one person close to the court said in a statement to Politico on Wednesday. “The views are uniform," the source added, noting that both Republican-appointed and Democratic-appointed justices are "as shocked as anyone." SUPREME COURT MAJORITY STILL ON TRACK TO OVERTURN ROE DESPITE JOHN ROBERTS Justices will return to the court on Thursday after its exterior has undergone a striking change in response to protests. On May 4, tall, unscalable fences were erected around the Supreme Court. Additionally, a group called Ruth Sent...
    Embattled NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson repeatedly denied outstanding sexual assault and harassment allegations from 22 women when questioned by reporters on Friday during his introductory press conference with the Cleveland Browns.  'I've never assaulted, disrespected, or harassed any woman in my life,' Watson told reporters in his first public appearance since the Browns acquired him from the Houston Texans for three first-round draft picks earlier this month. Watson, 26, was speaking a day after a second grand jury in Texas refused to press charges against the three-time Pro Bowl selection over a sexual assault complaint. Previously, on March 11, a grand jury in Harris County declined to proceed with charges stemming from nine separate complaints against Watson, who still faces 22 sexual misconduct lawsuits. Those lawsuits, most of which were filed by masseuses, claim Watson forced two women to perform oral sex on him, ejaculated on three women, and forcibly kissed another, while 18 women say Watson touched them with his penis during massages. He has maintained his innocence since the lawsuits were first filed in the spring of 2021,...
    Tiger Woods shut down questions about a February car crash where he nearly lost his leg in his first press conference with reporters since the incident happened, saying he’s not only "lucky to be alive" but lucky "to still have the limb."  Woods declined to talk about the details of the Feb.23 crash with reporters on Tuesday at a press conference in the Bahamas ahead of this week’s Hero World Challenge charity event at the Albany Golf Club.  TIGER WOODS ADMITS HE MAY NEVER BE AT THE PINNACLE OF GOLF AGAIN: ‘IT'S AN UNFORTUNATE REALITY'  "That's all been answered, it's in the police report," he said, via Yahoo Sports. "You can read about it there." FILE - In this Feb. 23, 2021, file photo a vehicle rests on its side after a rollover accident involving golfer Tiger Woods, in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., a suburb of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles County sheriff says detectives have determined what caused Tiger Woods to crash his SUV last month in Southern California but would not release details on Wednesday, March 31,...
    San Jose State might need to readjust its long-term goals after the reigning Mountain West champion suffered a serious setback Saturday afternoon in Fort Collins, Colorado. A 32-14 loss at Colorado State not only leaves little room for error in a quest for back-to-back conference titles, but it also brings into question whether the Spartans (3-3, 1-1 Mountain West) will qualify for a bowl game. No. 25 San Diego State comes into town this upcoming Friday, which could leave San Jose State below .500 and in need of three wins over the final five games in order to participate in the postseason. With quarterback Nick Starkel still sidelined by an undisclosed upper-body injury, San Jose State backup Nick Nash was unable to rekindle the magic from last week’s 37-31 victory over New Mexico State. Nash turned it over twice, with an interception in the first quarter and a fumble with 7 minutes, 56 seconds left in the game. He finished 10-of-21 for 152 yards, with an 18-yard touchdown to tight end Derrick Deese Jr. late in...
    Emma Raducanu told a press conference she 'needs to cut herself some slack' after losing to the world number 100 in her first match since she won the US Open and parted with her longtime coach Andrew Richardson.  The champion of New York turned out to be no queen of the desert at Indian Wells as she was soundly beaten on her first appearance since Flushing Meadows, going down 6-2 6-4 to Aliaksandra Sasnovich at the BNP Paribas Open.  The jaunty and irrepressible air that Raducanu displayed during her astonishing Grand Slam victory appeared to be replaced by flat body language. But the Kent teenager responded maturely to this setback against an opponent who had already experienced these sluggish conditions in the first round, reasoning: 'You can easily get sucked into being so focused on the result and getting disappointed. 'I mean, I'm 18 years old. I need to cut myself some slack.' Emma Raducanu was soundly beaten on her first appearance since Flushing Meadows, going down 6-2 6-4 to Aliaksandra Sasnovich at the BNP Paribas Open Raducanu of Great Britain...
    SPURS are guaranteed to be ranked by Uefa above Arsenal for the first time since the formation of the Prem - as a direct result of their appearance in the Conference League. Gunners fans and others have mocked their North London rivals for taking part in the new competition for Euro minnows. Arsenal have only won one of their last six North London derbies But with Mikel Arteta’s team failing to play in any European competition this term, the bonus points for reaching the group phase has taken Spurs ahead of them into 12th place in the Uefa calculations, based on results over the past five years. Each win in European competition is worth two points, with a draw counting for one and bonus points for progressing through various stages. Spurs, with that bonus for beating Portuguese outfit Pacos de Ferreira, start their campaign against Rennes on Thursday on 80.5 points, half a point ahead of Arsenal. That gap can only grow over the rest of the season. The only previous campaign in which Spurs have been ahead of the...

    Naomi Osaka. AP Photo/Lynne Sladky Naomi Osaka teared up during her first press conference in three months. The 23-year-old was unnerved by "a fairly aggressively toned question," per reporter Ben Rothenberg. At the French Open, Osaka did not meet with the media and withdrew entirely due to mental health.

Naomi Osaka is back on the tennis court. And for the first time since the French Open, she took the podium for a press conference. Osaka. Yukihito Taguchi-USA TODAY Sports Just a few exchanges into the press conference at this week's Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, someone "asked her a fairly aggressively toned question about how she benefits from a high-media profile but doesn't like talking to media," according to tennis reporter Ben Rothenberg. The 23-year-old superstar attempted to address the inquiry but eventually broke down...
    In her first press conference since withdrawing from the French Open citing mental health concerns, tennis superstar Naomi Osaka was reduced to tears before stepping away from the podium. According to Ben Rothenberg, tennis reporter for the New York Times, Osaka was triggered by “a fairly aggressively toned question about how she benefits from a high-media profile but doesn’t like talking to media.” Rothenberg later identified the reporter as Cincinnati Enquirer sports columnist Paul Daugherty. “The bully at the Cincinnati Enquirer is the epitome of why player / media relations are so fraught right now,” Osaka’s agent Stuart Duguid released in a statement. “Everyone on that Zoom will agree that his tone was all wrong and his sole purpose was to intimidate. Really appalling behavior. And this insinuation that Naomi owes her off court success to the media is a myth – don’t be so self-indulgent.” Osaka was visibly upset as she wiped tears from her eyes before it was announced they would take a quick break from the press conference. The Japanese-born tennis star then stood up from the...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t hold back Wednesday when he addressed the media. Rodgers addressed the media for the first time since agreeing to rejoin the team, and it was a sight to behold. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Green Bay Packers (@packers) The star quarterback ripped the way the Packers have treated “outgoing veterans” and he had a list of names he brought with him!

Aaron Rodgers didn’t hold back in his first news conference since returning to the Packers. pic.twitter.com/5O4HIrE2OV — ESPN (@espn) July 28, 2021 I think it’s safe to say that while Rodgers is back with the Packers for another season of football, he’s still clearly not very happy with the organization. Not only is he not happy with the way the team has treated some people, but he’s clearly more than willing to openly flame the front office. That was as unfiltered as...
    Here’s everything you may have missed from the Aaron Rodgers press conference at Packers camp on Wednesday.  Aaron Rodgers officially returned to the Green Bay Packers this week. He never technically left, as he’s under contract for three more seasons, but the cloud of doubt hung over the offseason until it parted with his arrival to training camp on Tuesday. Aaron Rodgers on rumors he was thinking about retirementRodgers confirmed that he had indeed considered retirement during his Cold War with the Packers. “Yeah it was definitely something I thought about,” he said.Is Aaron Rodgers vaccinated?Rodgers didn’t comment on that during his press conference, but it wasn’t something he was asked. As training camp continues, and the COVID vaccine becomes a larger talking point, he’ll likely have a comment one way or the other.
    Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, evaded questions about recent revelations that he feared a coup attempt in the aftermath of the 2020 election in his first public press conference since. "Let me just say this: I always personally provided the best military professional advice to President Trump previously, to President Biden, or any other president," Milley explained during a press conference on Wednesday, moments after he said he wasn't going to comment on the explosive reports detailing the final days of the Trump administration. JOINT CHIEFS CHAIRMAN FRETTED OVER COUP ATTEMPT AFTER TRUMP LOST 2020 ELECTION: BOOK "We always adhered to providing best professional military advice, bar none," he said. "It was candid, honest, in every single occasion. We did that all the time, every time. The other thing that I think is important to note here is that I, the other members of the Joint Chiefs, and all of us in uniform, we take an oath, an oath to a document, an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and not one time did...
    Since the Nets joined the NBA in 1977, the franchise has only made it to the Eastern Conference Finals twice. But that could change with a victory Thursday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. A Brooklyn win would propel the Nets to the conference finals for the first time since 2003 – when the Nets were still playing at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, N.J. That season, the Nets made it to the NBA Finals for the second consecutive season only to run into the San Antonio Spurs. The Nets have regained some of that excitement this season with the play of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and later James Harden. The Nets finished the 2020-21 season with the second-best record in the conference. Brooklyn made it out of the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2014.

But the challenge of winning on the road stands in their way. Brooklyn,...
    Google CEO Sundar Pichai speaks at the company's 20201 Google I/O conference.Google Google announced a slew of updates to its developer products Tuesday at its first Google I/O event since 2019. Though Google makes most of its money from advertising, the annual event is a way to excite its developer ecosystem with updates ranging from software and artificial intelligence moonshots to shopping features. The company cancelled the annual developer conference last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year's event was mostly virtual, with a few in-person attendees at the company's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. Here's a roundup of some of the more interesting announcements from the day's event:HardwareThis year's event was pretty light on hardware announcements — no big unveiling or refresh to its Pixel phones or home speakers. It did, however, announce some updates to existing products. Most notably, Google said it now has a whopping 3 billion active Android devices, globally, well ahead of Apple's claim of 1 billion iPhones. However, Android devices are widely divergent in terms of the version of the platform they run,...
    Oklahoma Dam: Two workers were killed in an explosion while doing maintenance Israeli military accused of using media to trick Hamas The Philadelphia 76ers clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a 122-97 win over the Orlando Magic on Friday night. The last time, and only other time, that the Sixers were the East's top seed was in 2001 -- when Allen Iverson was wearing a uniform for the franchise. In other words, it's been a while. But, while the Sixers acknowledged the relatively rare accomplishment, they don't have too much time to celebrate. They're well aware that there's much more work to be done.  © Provided by CBS Sports "It's an accomplishment. I don't want to downplay it," Sixers coach Doc Rivers said of securing pole position after the victory over Orlando. "I told our guys to enjoy, I don't even want to call it a moment. I told them to enjoy the second, because it's not what we want. But it's part of what you can get on your way to what you want. I...
    President Joe Biden’s first press conference since taking office featured a heavy focus on the border crisis, the future of the filibuster, and how and whether he plans to work with Republicans — but not everything he said was completely accurate. Despite receiving generally favorable press reviews for the hourlong appearance, Biden made some misleading or even outright false statements. Here are some: ON THE MIGRANT SURGE “The truth of the matter is nothing has changed,” Biden said. “It happens every single solitary year. There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March. It happens every year.” The president is correct that within individual years, migration tends to surge seasonally. But a comparison of the current pace of immigration to that seen during the same months in previous years shows we are in historic territory. “We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years,” Biden’s own Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, said in a statement...

    SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Stefanie Berberabe and Iyree Jarrett each scored 23 points and Westmont (Calif.) beat short-handed Thomas More (Ky.) 72-61 on Tuesday night for its first women’s NAIA national championship since 2013. Westmont (15-1) won for the 15th straight time this season — with its lone loss coming in overtime to Division-I member Pepperdine. Westmont went on an 11-0 run to build a 30-22 lead and it was 34-28 at the half, led by Berberabe’s 16 points. Berberabe finished 10 of 19 from the field, and was named the tournament’s most valuable player after scoring 26 points in the semifinals. Thomas More was without starter Zoie Barth, averaging a team-high 13.1 points, after getting injured late in the semifinals. Lauren Tsuneishi added 14 points for Westmont, of the Golden State Athletic Conference. Jarrett and Tsuneishi each made four 3-pointers as Westmont was 11 of 30 from distance. Emily Simon scored 14 points, Summer Secrist added 13 and Taylor Clos 11 for Thomas More (29-2), which had a 14-game winning streak snapped in its first NAIA...
    NASA is slated to announce what it says is a "series of firsts" in its Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission. On Friday, mission team members from Southern California's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) will hold their first news conference since the expedition began and the rover touched down on the red planet's surface in February.  NASA'S PERSEVERANCE ROVER SENDS BACK FIRST HD MARS PANORAMA The teleconference and visuals are set to stream live on NASA's JPL YouTube channel at 3:30 p.m. ET. While not much is known about the news, in a Wednesday release NASA wrote that mission controllers "have made substantial progress as they prepare the rover for the unpaved road ahead." "Since landing, NASA’s largest, most sophisticated Mars rover yet has gone through checks on every system and subsystem and sent back thousands of images from Jezero Crater. These checks will continue in the coming days, and the rover will make its first drives," the space agency said. "Each system checkout and milestone completed marks a significant step forward as the rover prepares for surface operations. The primary mission is slated for one Martian year, or 687...
