    DETROIT -- Lions running back Reggie Bush, who has been outspoken about the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, continued his outspoken nature Sunday when he wore a shirt reading "I Can't Breathe" during pregame warm-ups Sunday. Bush wrote the message -- in black ink on his blue shirt -- signifying the last words of Eric Garner, the New York man who died while being placed in a chokehold as he was being arrested. Bush wore the shirt a day after Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose wore an "I Can't Breathe" T-shirt in pregame warm-ups prior to his team's game Saturday night...

    Here's The Latest Look At The 'Real' Mega Bears Joe Weisenthal May 20, 2013, 5:51 AM This is a chart that people don't much look at these days. It's updated semi-regularly by Doug Short, and it compares the great US bear market (starting in 2000) with the great Nikkei bear and the Great Depression bear. For awhile all 3 were looking very similarly, but at this point it's clear. The US has broken away from history, and with stocks hitting new highs, doesn't even vaguely resemble the past ones.Doug Short

    One elderly thrill-seeker was gored in a leg and five others slightly injured as thousands of adrenaline-fueled runners raced ahead of six fighting bulls in the streets of the northern Spanish city of Pamplona in the first running of the bulls of this year's San Fermin festival, officials said Saturday. Runners, in white clothing and red kerchiefs around their necks, tripped over each other or fell in the annual mad daredevil rush along early morning dew-moistened streets to the bull ring. One youth got the top of his shirt and kerchief caught on a bull's horn, inches from his face,...

There's no way around that level of in-the-moment stupidity. He's since "apologized" (I guess?) for saying, in his words, "something," but does he not really understand that contrition better come a little stronger than that, these days? "I got caught up," Noah said. "I don't mean no disrespect to anybody."

    Commodities Are Sizzling, Risks Are Building by: Daniel Moser October 13, 2010 Practically all risk assets, and even many “risk-off” assets, have enjoyed extraordinary performance in the past month–maybe even too much. Jim Cramer, like him or not, coined the saying, “bulls make money; bears make money; pigs get slaughtered”. It would appear prudent to print out those words of wisdom and tape it to your computer screens for at least the next few weeks. A substantial portion of the gains in the last month seem most attributable to the prospects for additional quantitative easing. There has been some degree...

Indeed, even for a bear such as me, the writing was on the wall as bearish reversal patterns changed into bullish continuation patterns (see Getting Technical, "Why the Bulls Just Won't Die," May 28). With Monday's big stock-market gains -- at least as of 3 p.m. ET -- it does look as if the bulls are not only alive but well, at least in the short-term.

It happened in a quiet neighborhood west of Lantana, the dog shot in the driveway of the home of J.R. Martin. Martin declined comment.

That is, the up volume was over 90 percent of the total volume for the day. This kind of day is hugely bullish and is often indicative of a bottom being established, a slow but sure turning of the ship to a new direction.

But only seven people were treated for minor injuries this year, including an Australian man who was slightly gored and a Spaniard who escaped with a minor shoulder injury after being tossed in the air and falling into the path of another bull,...

    Thousands of revelers sprayed each other with sparkling wine and the mayor of this northeastern city launched a skyrocket at noon Friday to start Spain's most famous festival, the San Fermin running of the bulls. "Men and women of Pamplona, viva San Fermin!" Mayor Yolanda Barcina shouted from the city hall balcony. Crowds packed the town hall square, most dressed in the traditional garb of white shirts and trousers, and red handkerchiefs. Residents threw water on the revelers from balconies to cool them off. The launch of the skyrocket, known as the "chupinazo," began the nine-day fiesta that was popularized...

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Suddenly, it's a series. Ben Gordon scored 28 points and the hot-shooting Chicago Bulls beat the Detroit Pistons 108-92 Tuesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, pulling to 3-2 in the series. Detroit opened the series with two routs and made a big comeback in the third game, leading some to predict it would end with a sweep — or in five games at the most. Obviously, the Bulls had other plans. Game 6 is Thursday night in Chicago and if Game 7 is necessary, it would be Monday night back on the...

    USS NASSAU, At Sea (March 24, 2006) -- The flight line at Al Asad Air Base was a flurry of rotor blades and wrench-toting men and women while Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 261 (Reinforced) was in Iraq. Night and day for months, these mechanics, avionics and air frame specialists and a myriad of other supporting personnel of HMM-261 (Rein) enabled the squadron’s 1,845 sorties of more than 3,000 combat flight hours. Even though those on the flight line rarely saw the direct benefits of their job, their hard work kept Marines throughout Iraq safe. “We delivered a lot of bullets...

    ---Excerpt--- Axelrod's father, David, is a prominent Democratic political consultant in Chicago who has worked with Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley. "When I go to games, I cheer as hard as I can for the Bulls, and I boo as hard as I can for whoever they're playing," Michael Axelrod said. "I don't feel comfortable if players are allowed to easily jump into the crowd whenever they feel like it's necessary." Axelrod's attorney, Jay Paul Deratany, said he planned to sue Davis and his wife for more than $1 million. Deratany said he...

    AL ASAD AIRFIELD, Iraq (Dec. 26, 2005) -- Marines and sailors poured from the back of assault helicopters to a familiar place last week as Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 261 (Reinforced) returned to western Iraq prepared to assist in Operation Iraqi Freedom. For many of the “Raging Bull” aircrew and maintainers, the airfield at Al Asad is quite familiar. Nearly half of the squadron’s Marines operated at the sprawling Iraqi air base for nearly seven months last year. The composite squadron is currently deployed as the aviation combat element of the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable). While in...

    VALLE DE SANTIAGO, Mexico (Reuters) - The rousing trumpet music, the swish of the cape and the shouts of "Ole!" as the bull charges are all familiar to anyone who has seen a bullfight. The unnerving thing in the bullring at this dusty central Mexican town is that bull and bullfighter are standing eye to eye, both about four feet high. The Mexican "dwarf bullfighters" are carrying on a tradition born in Spain along with regular bullfighting, as well as an even longer legacy of "little people" as entertainers. But they say the ring showcases their skill and comic artistry,...

    Preserving the buffalos Fate of Texas herd rests with donated bulls By BETSY BLANEY Associated Press CAPROCK CANYONS STATE PARK, Texas The rumble from stampeding bison used to shake the earth as thousands of the majestic animals thundered across these parts centuries ago. That sound has faded almost entirely now, and the fate of one of the last pure herds in North America begun by famed cattleman Charles Goodnight rests with a trio of bulls donated by media tycoon Ted Turner. The herd, once 250 strong, has dwindled to 53, and more than a century of inbreeding threatens it survival....
  • Question Regarding Conservative Beliefs (Vanity?)

    Okay - at the risk of being beat to hell over this issue, I have a question. I do realize that there is a lot of bad press out there about pit bull attacks. I happen to own a pit bull, and probably wouldn't go to another breed again. I am a very responsible owner and have a loving dog from a 'genetic background' of very stable, wonderful pets (going back three generations). My question is this, I'm a conservative person. I belive in not encroaching on individual freedoms. I also believe that people kill people, not guns, etc. Why...

    Voters have had plenty of opportunities to gather information and pass judgment on President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry. Most, however, are unsatisfying -- staged debates, advertising swill, convention hoo-ha, editorial folderol. It makes you wonder: Is there really a way to measure the cut of a man's character when it comes time to cast a ballot? You bet. The answer, of course, is sports. So ditch that crinkled copy of endorsements from the News or the Post. All you need on November 2 is this handy clip-'n'-save sports voter's guide. (It goes on...)Kerry's biography also claims that...

    TORONTO - Calling the dogs "ticking time bombs," Ontario's attorney general announced Friday that the province will become the first in Canada to ban pit bulls. Attorney General Michael Bryant said legislation to ban the dogs will be introduced within a month. Canada's most populous province will allow current owners of pit bulls to keep their pets, but will place an absolute ban on new ownership of the dogs throughout the province. Following a transition period, pit bulls will have to be muzzled and leashed, along with being neutered or spayed, said Bryant. "I am convinced that pit bulls are...
