    MADRID (AP) — With its forwards still yet to produce as expected, Real Madrid will be counting on its midfielders and defenders to keep coming through in attack. The defending champions’ forwards are scoreless through two games of the Spanish league season.

Midfielder Federico Valverde also scored in the 3-2 comeback win, with the other coming from an own-goal. “It’s not only for the forwards who have to score, the midfielders and the defenders need to contribute as well,” Valverde said. “That’s our job, too, so Madrid can win.” The team’s...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Grab the umbrella as you head out the door this morning. That’s something I haven’t advised you to do in over two weeks. It will also be the first rain recorded at the Pittsburgh airport in more than two weeks. Crazy.

    Kentucky's attorney general has agreed to release the transcripts of a grand jury hearing in the Breonna Taylor case, insisting he has nothing to hide after a member of the jury took the highly-unusual step of suing to seek the release of the documents. Daniel Cameron, a black Republican official, said on Monday night that he was taking the extraordinary step of publishing the information, given the huge public interest in the case.

    Protests in Louisville were less violent Thursday night, calming down significantly from the previous night, during which two Louisville Metropolitan Police Department officers were shot, the Courier Journal reported. Thursday was the second night since the grand jury decision not to charge any officers for killing Breonna Taylor during a raid on her home in March. One former officer, Brett Hankison, was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, related to his allegedly shooting recklessly into surrounding apartments — not to the fact that Taylor was shot and killed. The Courier Journal reported that 24 people were arrested overnight Thursday, down from 127 the night before. Some of the arrests were for unlawful assembly and failure to disperse, and...

    Nikola’s stock price plummeted Thursday after its potential fuel partners reportedly hit the brakes on negotiations with the beleaguered electric-truck startup. Shares in Phoenix-based Nikola tumbled as much as 23.6 percent following a Wall Street Journal report that its talks with BP and other firms had stalled after investment firm Hindenburg Research accused the company of fraud. The hiccup in Nikola’s efforts to build hydrogen refueling stations for its vehicles marked the first concrete sign that the allegations against founder Trevor Milton were hindering the company’s ability to build its business, the paper reported Wednesday. Thursday’s plunge also came after Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives gave Nikola an “underperform” rating and predicted the share price would fall to $15. Ives...

    White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas reacted to Wednesday comments from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield during a Thursday evening appearance on Fox News’ “The Story.” Redfield told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday that a COVID-19 vaccine would not be readily available to the public until midway through 2021. He also stressed that his face mask was “more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine.” “Do you agree with him on that?” anchor Martha MacCallum asked Atlas.

Demonstrators gathered inside the Jacob K. Javits Federal building at 26 Federal Plaza to decry the allegedly forced gynecological procedures where they raised their fists, chanted in unison and blared blowhorns.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Openly contradicting the government’s top health experts, President Donald Trump predicted Wednesday that a safe and effective vaccine against the coronavirus could be ready as early as next month and in mass distribution soon after, undermining the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and calling him “confused” in projecting a longer time frame. Trump also disagreed with Dr. Robert Redfield about the effectiveness of protective masks — which the president recommends but almost never wears — and said he’d telephoned Redfield to tell him so.

    Rivers in Florida and Alabama are rising Thursday after Hurricane Sally blasted the region, leaving at least two dead as the storm's remnants spread the threat of flooding and tornadoes across the Southeast.

    (CNN)In yet another stunning example of President Donald Trump scorning science and rejecting advice from his own health officials, he insisted Wednesday that a coronavirus vaccine could be ready ahead of the November election and minimized the usefulness of wearing masks, directly contradicting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief Dr. Robert Redfield. On the same day, Redfield told a Senate subcommittee that he did not expect a vaccine to be "fully available to the American public" until the middle of 2021 at the earliest, and said that wearing masks may be a more effective means of protecting against the virus. But the Trump administration is continuing to promote its own rapid timeline, announcing plans on Wednesday to have the...

    By Devika Krishna Kumar and Catherine Koppel PENSACOLA, Fla. (Reuters) - Hurricane Sally moved northeast Thursday, where it was expected to bring more than a foot of rain to some areas, one day after it flooded streets and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Sally made landfall early on Wednesday near Gulf Shores, Alabama, as a Category 2 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale of intensity. As of late Wednesday, it was moving north at 9 mph (15 km per hour) after being downgraded to a tropical depression, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, with maximum winds of 35 mph (55 kmh).

    Attorney General William Barr said in a speech Wednesday that lockdowns intended to slow the spread of the new coronavirus were “the greatest intrusion on civil liberties” in the history of the United States since slavery.  “You know, putting a national lockdown, stay at home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history,” he said, according to CNN. The crowd at Hillsdale College in Michigan reportedly burst into applause.

    Reuters September 16, 2020 0 Comments The United States said on Wednesday it plans to impose sanctions on those who violate a U.N. arms embargo on Iran, which Washington says will now stay in place instead of expiring in October as agreed under a 2015 nuclear deal. U.S. Special Representative for Venezuela and Iran Elliott Abrams said Washington could deny access to the U.S. market to anyone who trades in weapons with Iran, which President Donald Trump’s administration accuses of seeking to develop nuclear weapons. Iran has denied it is developing nuclear weapons. In 2018 Trump quit the Iran nuclear deal – under which Tehran limited its nuclear activities in return for sanctions relief – and reimposed U.S. sanctions....

    BERKELEY — Prosecutors charged a 46-year-old Berkeley man with multiple crimes Wednesday after he tried to set multiple people’s hair on fire outside a pizzeria and tea shop earlier this week, authorities said. At 9:35 p.m. Monday, police responded to reports of the attack in the 2500 block of Durant Avenue. Officers soon learned that two men were eating at Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, 2590 Durant Ave., when a man approached and knocked their food off a table before saying he was going to set them on fire. As the men began to walk away, the man sprayed them with WD-40 lubricant, police said. Moments later, the same man reportedly approached four people waiting at Feng Cha Teahouse, 2528 Durant Ave.,...
    President Donald Trump said Wednesday he was not ready to sign off on a deal for Oracle to buy TikTok from a Chinese parent company, citing both national security concerns and wanting to ensure the U.S. government gets its cut. 'It has to be 100 percent as far as national security is concerned. No, I'm not prepared to sign off on anything. I have to see the deal,' Trump said. 'They going to be reporting to me tomorrow morning and I'll let you know.'  He also said he was surprised to learn that the U.S. cannot take a cut of the TikTok deal and he's going to have the government look into that.  'Amazingly, I find that you're not allowed...
    The Pac-12’s fall sports season remained on hold as of Wednesday after the Big Ten Conference reversed course and said it would begin its college football season in late October despite the coronavirus pandemic. Following the Big Ten’s decision, the Pac-12 is the only one of the NCAA’s “Power Five” conferences without plans to play out some version of a college football season this fall. In August, Pac-12 officials postponed all fall sports until at least Jan. 1 due to concerns about health risks for student-athletes. Aside from complications related to the pandemic, several Pac-12 schools are contending with added risk from wildfires that resulted in poor air quality along the West Coast. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said the conference...
    The driver of a car that crashed on an East Bay freeway died early Wednesday, but it may not have been the crash that killed him, the California Highway Patrol said. Authorities did not identify the man, pending notification of his relatives, and it was unclear Wednesday afternoon whether he died at the scene or at the hospital. Regardless, the CHP said he may have been heavily intoxicated. According to CHP spokesman Officer Sean Layton, a passenger in the car told officers that both men earlier had been snorting cocaine. The car crashed near the Potrero Avenue exit in Richmond around 1:33 a.m. while going west on Interstate 80, Layton said. The vehicle ran into the center barrier, and no...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was quick to blame Tom Brady for the quarterback’s costly miscues in Week 1. He changed his tune a bit on Monday, and by Wednesday, he threw out his own version of a famous line by Brady’s former coach in hopes of moving on. Someone may want to warn Arians that sounding like Bill Belichick may not improve his relationship with Brady, given how things ended for the QB in New England. But alas, that’s where Arians went on Wednesday. “We’re on to Carolina,” the Bucs coach told reporters. It’s not as catchy as “On to Cincinnati,” but maybe it will lead to Brady torching the Panthers like he did to...

    By Susan Cornwell and David Morgan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Trump urged his fellow Republicans Wednesday to go for "much higher numbers" in a coronavirus aid bill, as a stalemate continued in Washington over whether to approve more economic relief from the crisis ahead of Nov. 3 elections. The Senate's number two Republican, John Thune, reacted cautiously to Trump's appeal on Twitter. The standoff dates to mid-May, when the Democratic-majority House of Representatives approved $3.4 trillion in new aid, including unemployment benefits, money for schools, the U.S. Postal Service, and testing. The Senate's Republican leaders countered with a $1 trillion plan, but some of their own members balked at that. Last week they put a $300 billion bill up for...
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield broke with President Donald Trump’s administration on the timeline of developing a coronavirus vaccine Wednesday, saying it will take months longer than estimated to get into the hands of the public. Redfield made the comments during testimony to a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, saying a vaccine wouldn’t be widely available to the public until roughly half way through 2021. Other administration officials have said every American would be vaccinated much earlier than that. “If you’re asking me when is it going to be available to the American public,” Redfield said in the hearing. “I think we’re probably looking at late second quarter, third quarter 2021.” (RELATED: ‘Went Too Far’:...
    Pensacola, Fla. – A section of the bridge collapsed on Wednesday morning as Hurricane Sally washed up on the Gulf Coast and turned the streets into white-covered rivers due to 30-inch rain and storm surge in Pensacola. Sally’s strong winds were centered in Florida and Alabama. In Fensacola, Florida, part of the Bensacola Bay Bridge collapsed, and the city was mostly underwater. Floods have proven to be Sally’s worst danger due to the slow storm’s heavy rainfall: “Historic and catastrophic flooding, including widespread moderate to large river floods,” forecasters say. Photos and videos from coastal areas showed trees falling, debris and boats being tossed, and streets flooded. At 9 a.m. local time, a water level station in Pensacola sank 5.5...
