The Suns have taken a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, winning both of their home games, before the series shifts to Milwaukee for Games 3 and 4.

Game 3 will be in Milwaukee on...
The video causing the furore shows Hindu men forcibly shaving the beard of an elderly Muslim man, with India claiming Twitter should remove it to prevent incitement of communal hate.
Police in India have summoned Twitter's top official in the country to answer allegations that the US firm failed to stop the spread of a video that allegedly incited "hate and enmity" between Hindu and Muslim communities.
An official police notice, seen by Reuters, showed a case had been registered in Ghaziabad in northern Uttar Pradesh state over a video of a few men, apparently Hindu, beating an elderly man believed to be a Muslim and cutting his beard.
The police report names Twitter Inc, its local unit and seven others for their alleged roles in disseminating a video that was deemed insultin...

Jennifer McClellan remembers her parents’ recounting life as Black Southerners enduring segregation and the trauma and triumph of the civil rights movement.
It showed her that government can be “a powerful force for improving people’s lives” but also one “that oppresses some, ignores others.”
A generation later, despite her interest in public office, there was no obvious pathway for someone like her.
“There weren’t a lot of role models ... examples of Black women” in power, said McClellan in an interview. Now, she’s a 48-year-old state senator running for governor herself: “We’re in a very different Virginia.”
McClellan’s candidacy alongside fellow Democratic primary candidate Jennifer Carroll Foy demonstrates the rising political power of Black women, long a foundation of...
With the exception of the Terminator franchise, his recurring cameos in Sylvester Stallone’s Expendables series and 1984’s Conan the Destroyer, Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn’t revisited any of his most famous movies, but that hasn’t been due to a lack of trying on the part of either the various studios involved or the action hero himself.
The actor has turned down the opportunity to make a cameo appearance in every Predator to follow in the wake of John McTiernan’s classic original, writer Steven E. De Souza admitted that he penned a Commando sequel, James Cameron toyed with the idea of True Lies 2 for a while, Twins sequel Triplets has languished in development hell for decades, and Kindergarten Cop 2 eventually arrived straight to video sixteen years after the original with Dolph Lu...
Adrian Grenier might have lived the high life as Vincent Chase in Entourage, but now the Hollywood actor is living a self-sufficient life in Texas.
In an interview with Austin Life magazine, Grenier revealed he put Los Angeles and New York behind him so he could pursue farming.
His farm is reportedly 45 minutes outside of Austin in Bastrop, a city that has a population of roughly 88,723, according to US Census data. It also sits not far from the Colorado River and wildflower fields, the magazine reports.
"I bought a place in Austin five years ago and a year ago I decided to move here permanently,” Grenier told Austin Life. ”I had friends here, I ran a business here, and liked the pace. Austin is cosmopolitan without being snooty; it’s earthy. People are smart and successful b...

Chris Martin had Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish in fits of laughter as he made a crude joke about them at the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2021.
The star-studded ceremony returned to Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre on Thursday night (27.05.21), and the 44-year-old Coldplay frontman turned comedian as he jokingly pretended not to know a thing about the music legend, before he made an explicit quip about him and his husband David Furnish.
The 'High Power' hitmaker began his speech: "I don't really know anything about Elton John, and I'm just gonna read what iHeart wrote for me. So, fingers crossed.
"He and his collaborat...
Myanmar’s Roman Catholic leader has called for attacks on places of worship to end after he said four people had died and more than eight were wounded when a group of mainly women and children sought refuge in a church during fighting this week.
The conflict between the army and forces opposed to military rule has escalated in recent days in eastern Myanmar near the border of Shan and Kayah states, with dozens of security forces and local fighters killed, according to residents and media reports.
Thousands of civilians have also fled their homes due to the fighting and have also suffered casualties.
"It is with immense sorrow and pain, we record our anguish at the attack on innocent civilians, who sought refuge in Sacred Heart Church, Kayanthayar," Cardinal Ch...
A senior Hamas official predicted a ceasefire within days in the Israel-Gaza conflict, after U.S. President Joe Biden urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to seek a “de-escalation” in the fighting.
Rocket fire into Israel died down overnight, a lull that stretched into Thursday morning. Israel was launching new air strikes in Gaza after daybreak, but, Israeli media said, at a slower pace than in past days.
An Egyptian security source said the sides had agreed in principle to a ceasefire after help from mediators but details were still being negotiated in secret.
"I think that the ongoing efforts regarding the ceasefire will succeed," the Hamas political official, Moussa Abu Marzouk, told Lebanon's al-Mayadeen TV. "I expect a ceasefire to be...

The early morning raids on Gaza were some of the ponderous seen ever since the wrangles flared up. Israel said they facilities belonging to the militant group Hamas and several commanders' homes, but main roads and power lines were also damaged.
Meanwhile, international calls for a ceasefire continue to go on.
The UN Security Council held an emergency meeting on Sunday, and Secretary-General António Guterres warned that further fighting had "the potential to unleash an uncontainable security and humanitarian crisis".
He pleaded for an immediate end to the "utterly appalling" violence.
Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said on Monday that his country was going to great lengths to reach a ceasefire.
But there were no signs of that happe...
Dear Fellow South African, Our experience with the democratic transition is a lesson about the power of empathy, negotiation and compromise. The escalating situation in Israel and Palestine affirms once more what we South Africans know too well, that intractable conflicts can only be solved through peaceful negotiation. It also demonstrates that unless the root causes of a conflict are addressed, in this case the illegal occupation by Israel of Palestinian land and the denial of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination, there will never be peace. The latest violence was sparked by an Israeli court decision to evict a group of families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in East Jerusalem to make way for Israeli settlements. The sight of men, women and children...
