|'Gut-wrenching' decision: Search for teens suspended||Fan favorite Flores homers in 12th, Mets beat Nationals 2-1 (Yahoo Sports)|
After hundreds of rescue workers fanned out across a massive swath of the Atlantic for a full week, the Coast Guard's search for two teenage fishermen ended Friday, a heart-rending decision for families so convinced the boys could be alive they're pressing on with their own hunt.
Wilmer Flores gave Mets fans one more reason to fall for him - this time with his bat as well as his heart. The new favorite at Citi Field hit a leadoff homer in the 12th inning to lift New York over the Washington Nationals 2-1 Friday night in the opener of a pivotal series between the top teams in the NL East. Two nights after endearing himself to Mets rooters when they saw him wiping away tears at shortstop after he thought he'd been traded, Flores received four standing ovations on an invigorating day for the Mets.
|Pacific trade ministers fail to reach deal in Hawaii talks||Mets get Cespedes at trade deadline (Yahoo Sports)|
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Trade ministers from a dozen Pacific Rim nations failed to reach a deal on a new trade agreement that would cover nearly 40 percent of the global economy, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said Friday.
The Mets finally landed the bat they were looking for in Yoenis Cespedes just ahead of Friday's trade deadline, and Cole Hamels confirmed he blocked a trade to Houston before Philadelphia dealt its ace to Texas. Sixteen trades were made Friday ahead of the annual deadline for deals without waivers, but San Diego was among the buyers, not the sellers, to the surprise of some. Hamels was the only top starting pitcher dealt following earlier trades that sent Scott Kazmir to Houston, Johnny Cueto to Kansas City and David Price to Toronto.
|Clinton releases tax, health records on busy Friday||Donaldson drives in winning run, Jays beat Royals 7-6 in 11 (Yahoo Sports)|
Hillary Clinton is in "excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president," her physician declared Friday — just one in a flood of disclosures about the Democratic presidential candidate pushed out by her campaign on a busy summer day.
David Price was pleased with the popcorn waiting in his locker when he finally arrived in Toronto. Hours later, Josh Donaldson gave Price something even better: a dramatic win for his new team. Donaldson singled home Troy Tulowitzki in the 11th inning, and the new-look Blue Jays rallied to beat Kansas City 7-6 on Friday night and hand Johnny Cueto a no-decision in his Royals debut.
|Mexican judge suspends U.S. extradition order for fugitive 'Chapo' Guzman||WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper dies at 61 (Yahoo Sports)|
A Mexican judge temporarily suspended a U.S. extradition order on Friday for the fugitive drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman even though the federal attorney general's office had approved it a day earlier. Guzman, one of the world's most notorious drug traffickers, broke out of a maximum security prison earlier this month, escaping in a tunnel built right under his cell. The United States requested Guzman's extradition on June 25, just a couple weeks before his escape, but Mexican officials said in January that Guzman would not be handed over because he must first serve time in his home country.
''Rowdy'' Roddy Piper, the kilt wearing trash-talker who headlined the first WrestleMania and later found movie stardom, died Friday. Piper's death also comes days after Hulk Hogan, his biggest rival for decades, was fired by the WWE. Hogan had used racial slurs in a conversation captured on a sex tape.
|Exclusive: Donald Trump's companies have sought visas to import at least 1,100 workers||Skins add LB Galette to pass rush, despite off-field issues (Yahoo Sports)|
By Mica Rosenberg, Ryan McNeill, Megan Twohey and Michelle Conlin NEW YORK (Reuters) - Donald Trump is staking his run for U.S. president in part on a vow to protect American jobs. Trump owns companies that have sought to import at least 1,100 foreign workers on temporary visas since 2000, according to U.S. Department of Labor data reviewed by Reuters. Nine companies majority-owned by Trump have sought to bring in foreign waitresses, cooks, vineyard workers and other laborers on temporary work-visa programs administered by the Labor Department.
Whatever Junior Galette has been accused of away from football, and whatever punishment might come from an NFL investigation, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden wanted to sign the outside linebacker to help the team's pass rush. Less than a week after being released by the New Orleans Saints because of off-field problems, Galette agreed Friday to a one-year contract with the Redskins that agent Alvin Keels wrote on Twitter is for the league minimum - $745,000 for a player entering his sixth season. The NFL also is reviewing a video that shows a man resembling Galette in a fight on a beach.

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.
