He appeared to stand on his tiptoes for a moment, peering through the bars at the gallery where his parents and a couple of family friends sat. He looked over at the judge and at his lawyer. He seemed confused and impatient. His hair, which had been combed neatly to the right in his yearbook photos, now fell in a loose mess around his ears. Usually clean-shaven, Sam sported a patchy, unkempt beard and a wiry mustache. A dirty undershirt poked through the collar of his orange jumpsuit. Sam could see his mom, Michele, close to the front of the room. She was wearing a black blazer with black-and-white polka-dot pants. “I never thought I’d wear polka dots again,” Michele had told a friend in the hallway. “It seemed too cheerful.” In between Sam and his family sat the counsel table, with a box … [Read more...] about How a Gay Teen, an Internet Nazi, and a Late-Night Rendezvous Turned to Tragedy

Wyatt D. Wheeler Springfield News-Leader Published 11:00 PM EDT Mar 20, 2019 Kellie Harper knew the Lady Bears were capable of making the NCAA Tournament before the season, but she also knew it was going to take a lot of work in order for them to reach their potential. It was a young team, consisting of five freshmen, six sophomores, two juniors and only one senior. From the very beginning, Harper was worried about the little things, including the correct way to ride a bus. The 2019 Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year said the most important thing is knowing where you're going to sit. There are times when cellphones need to be turned off when they need to look through scouting reports. There's a snack bin that many of the young players weren't aware of. The list goes on and on. It was just one of the many things she had to spend time on as she attempted to have a new team buy into her culture. "It was daily," Harper said Wednesday … [Read more...] about MSU Lady Bears: How Kellie Harper led team to NCAA Tournament

For someone in his line of work, the evening was shaping up to be as risk-free as it gets: Alone, in his one-bedroom apartment one block from the Dallas Police Department headquarters. Fresh from work, he had texted his sister his evening plans: Watching a football game on TV, the Eagles versus the Falcons. He texted a friend, apologizing for not going out with her the weekend before. Mr. Jean, 26, was from the island-nation of St. Lucia. He had a big smile, and was a big eater, winning a meat-lovers’ contest at Big Chef Steak House back in the Caribbean. He still had his ticket for a free meal on his next visit, his prize after eating a … [Read more...] about A Dallas Police Officer Shot Her Neighbor, and a City is Full of Questions

But this was the best way to guarantee a seat to watch the financial fraud trial of Paul Manafort — a case that has captured nationwide attention. Quentin Miles had already been outside in the muggy summer heat for nearly three hours, and Sandy Navarro’s hair was still damp after a 3 a.m. shower and hourlong drive from Annapolis, Md. “Is this what it’s like to sit in line for Justin Bieber?” Ms. Navarro, 49, a digital forensics student and displaced New Yorker, said as she looked at the line already forming on the bricks behind her. “Taylor Swift? Michael Jackson back in the … [Read more...] about Manafort Trial’s Spectators: ‘Why Go to Cancun’ When You Can See History?
Alicia Kennedy, The Washington Post Published 7:46 am PDT, Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Photo: Robin Marchant/Getty Images For "Phenoms" Gordon Ramsay on March 11, 2018 in Austin, Texas. Gordon Ramsay on March 11, 2018 in Austin, Texas. If the restaurant industry is a boy's club (and it is), Gordon Ramsay represents its worst tendencies. There are sporadic moments of tenderness on his shows, "Kitchen Nightmares," "Hell's Kitchen" and "MasterChef," as well as its kids edition "MasterChef Junior," but they shine only because they stand out against a background of near-nonstop profanity and insults. Think of the numerous montages on YouTube featuring his outrage in which he spits out and insults food. He has thus far been contained primarily to the United States and Britain, lands where his tongue-lashings carry little geopolitical weight. That tricky dance of power is reserved for food-travel shows, and last … [Read more...] about Opinion: Gordon Ramsay’s new cooking show is a colonialist mess
