|Gusty wind may add to weather risks on soggy East Coast||Scherzer throws his 2nd no-hitter this year, Nats sweep Mets (Yahoo Sports)|
Trees and power lines across the Carolinas and Virginia are vulnerable.
Max Scherzer says he can get even better. The Washington Nationals ace threw one of the most dominant games in baseball history - pitching his second no-hitter of the season and striking out a team-record 17 - and then vowed he wasn't done. Try telling that to the NL East champion New York Mets after Scherzer totally shut them down in a 2-0 win Saturday night that completed a doubleheader sweep.
|Oregon shooting victim professor Larry Levine loved nature, writing||Swamp Shocker! No. 25 Florida upsets No. 3 Mississippi 38-10 (Yahoo Sports)|
Larry Levine, one of the victims in the Umpqua Community College shooting, loved fishing in the great outdoors and was passionate about writing.
Will Grier was sick all right. Grier threw four touchdown passes - all in the first half - and No. 25 Florida upset third-ranked Mississippi 38-10 on Saturday night to give coach Jim McElwain a signature win in his first season in Gainesville. ''You don't downplay it,'' McElwain said.
|Doctors Without Borders leaves Afghan city after airstrike||No. 12 Clemson holds off No. 6 Notre Dame 24-22 (Yahoo Sports)|
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — International medical charity Doctors Without Borders said on Sunday it has withdrawn from the northern Afghan city of Kunduz after a deadly airstrike destroyed its hospital, killing 19 people.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney learned plenty about his 12th-ranked Tigers on Saturday night, qualities he believes make them hard to beat. Deshaun Watson threw two touchdown passes, ran for a third score and 12th-ranked Clemson withstood No. 6 Notre Dame's second-half rally for a 24-22 victory.
|Gunman in Oregon college massacre committed suicide||No. 13 Alabama still a force, routs No. 8 Georgia 38-10 (Yahoo Sports)|
By Courtney Sherwood and Emily Flitter ROSEBURG, Ore. (Reuters) - The gunman who killed his English professor and eight others at an Oregon community college committed suicide after a shootout with police who arrived within five minutes and exchanged fire with him almost immediately, authorities said. Investigators had previously said the 26-year-old shooter was killed by the officers who raced to the rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, which ranks as the deadliest among dozens of U.S. mass shootings in the past two years. Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin told a news conference on Saturday the state medical examiner had determined that the gunman, Christopher Harper-Mercer, took his own life.
With its season in the balance, No. 13 Alabama had quite a response on Saturday. The Crimson Tide is still very much a force in the national race. Jake Coker ran the offense to perfection, the defense turned in a dominating performance, and No. 13 Alabama even got a touchdown from its special teams in a 38-10 rout of No. 8 Georgia.
|Life ring from missing cargo ship found as hurricane threatens Bermuda||Elliott's big day leads No. 1 Ohio St. past Indiana 34-27 (Yahoo Sports)|
By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - U.S. Coast Guard pilots found a life ring from the cargo ship El Faro on Saturday, the first trace of the vessel since it went missing two days earlier with 33 mostly American crew members on board, as powerful Hurricane Joaquin moved toward Bermuda. A search-and-rescue crew found the life ring in waters to the northeast of Crooked Island in the Bahamas, about 75 miles (120 km) from the ship's last known position before it went missing on Thursday morning, the Coast Guard said. "Because we found a life ring, the assumption can be made that we are searching in the right area," said Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios.
When everything else fizzled Saturday for Ohio State, coach Urban Meyer put the ball in Ezekiel Elliott's trusted hands. The junior running back got a sluggish offense going with second-half touchdown runs of 55, 65 and 75 yards, and Eli Apple batted away a desperation pass in the end zone as time expired to preserve No. 1 Ohio State's 34-27 victory at Indiana. The Buckeyes have won 18 straight games and 15 in a row on the road, both the longest active streaks in the FBS, but the style points could cost them in the next poll.

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.
