|Hillary Clinton calls McCarthy's Benghazi comments 'deeply distressing'||Rangers win AL West on final day, Hamels beat Angels 9-2 (Yahoo Sports)|
Hillary Clinton says House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s suggestion that the select committee investigating Benghazi was summoned to derail her 2016 presidential bid is “deeply distressing” because it dishonors the four Americans who died in the terror attacks.
First-year manager Jeff Banister stood in a corner of the Texas Rangers clubhouse watching players celebrate, with champagne spraying all over the place. A year after their 95 losses were the most in the American League, two months after they were still eight games out of first place and three days after ensuring themselves a postseason spot, the Rangers clinched the AL West title with a 9-2 victory over the Angels on the last day of the regular season. ''Incredible moment, emotional, one I'll never forget,'' Banister said.
|Historic South Carolina floods: Heavy rain, hundreds rescued||Denver's defense leads Broncos past Vikings 23-20 (Yahoo Sports)|
Trees and power lines across the Carolinas and Virginia are vulnerable.
Bursting through the line for jaw-dropping plays is quickly becoming the Denver Broncos' calling card. Ronnie Hillman raced around the left sideline on a classic stretch play for a 72-yard touchdown run, and the league's top-ranked defense collected seven more sacks in a 23-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. ''We had three bad weeks of running the ball and tonight we got it started,'' Hillman said after his third career 100-yard game.
|The Twitter follow lists of the 2016 candidates||Bengals stay unbeaten with 36-21 win over Chiefs (Yahoo Sports)|
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Jeb Bush follows Donald Trump on Twitter but that's a one-way street: Trump mainly follows people with a connection to himself. Ted Cruz's follow list is a big tea party, though he keeps an eye on President Barack Obama, too.
Andy Dalton completes his first 10 passes and makes another big play. Through four games, the Bengals are still perfect. Dalton threw a 55-yard touchdown pass on the run - the type of throw he's rarely made in the past - and Cincinnati remained unbeaten with a 36-21 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
|South Carolina hit by torrential rainfall, eight dead||Brees' 400th TD pass lifts Saints over Cowboys, 26-20 in OT (Yahoo Sports)|
By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Torrential rainfall that South Carolina's governor called a once-in-a-millennium downpour triggered flooding in the southeastern U.S. state on Sunday, causing at least eight deaths in the Carolinas. The storm had dumped more than 20 inches (50 cm) of rain in parts of central South Carolina since Friday, the National Weather Service said. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said parts of the state were hit with rainfall that would be expected to occur once in 1,000 years, with the Congaree River at its highest level since 1936.
As Drew Brees watched Saints teammate Zach Hocker clank a potential winning field goal off the upright before a stunned Superdome crowd, the veteran quarterback began trying to convince himself that he was simply meant to throw his 400th career touchdown pass in overtime. Brees hit C.J. Spiller with a short pass that the running back turned into an 80-yard touchdown on the second play of overtime and New Orleans won for the first time this season, 26-20 over the injury-decimated Cowboys on Sunday night. ''Right when the play call came out of (coach) Sean Payton's mouth for C.J., I thought, 'This is it.
|Debris appears to belong to cargo ship missing in Bahamas||Angels hire Yankees' Billy Eppler as new general manager (Yahoo Sports)|
By Susan Cooper Eastman JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Reuters) - Search-and-rescue teams on Sunday located debris appearing to belong to the cargo ship El Faro, which went missing in the eye of Hurricane Joaquin with 33 mostly American crew members aboard more than three days ago, the U.S. Coast Guard and the ship's owner said. There was no sighting of the El Faro or any lifeboats, Tim Nolan, president of ship's owner Tote Maritime Puerto Rico, said in a statement. With no word on the fate of the crew, relatives gathered at a seafarers' union hall in Jacksonville, Florida where an emotional meeting was held late on Sunday afternoon with the Coast Guard and Tote Maritime executives.
The Los Angeles Angels hired longtime Yankees executive Billy Eppler as their new general manager on Sunday night. The 40-year-old Eppler replaces interim GM Bill Stoneman, who took over after Jerry Dipoto quit his job at midseason following his latest disagreement with Mike Scioscia, the longest-serving manager in baseball. Eppler has long been considered a prime candidate to run his own team, and the Angels are giving him the chance.

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.
