|Clinton releases tax, health records on busy Friday||WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper dies at 61 (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.
''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.
|Cannabis credit union sues Federal Reserve||Kershaw, Greinke switch starts for Dodgers in Freeway Series (Yahoo Sports)|
The Fourth Corner Credit Union claims it is being prevented from providing financial services to the marijuana industry.
Clayton Kershaw's next start for the Los Angeles Dodgers has been bumped to Saturday, and Zack Greinke has been moved up to start Friday night against the Angels. The Dodgers announced the switch about four hours before the Freeway Series opener. The Dodgers also added their recent trade acquisitions to their active roster: left-hander Alex Wood and relievers Jim Johnson and Luis Avilan.
|WWE wrestler Roddy Piper dies at 61||Mets add hitting help, trade for Tigers OF Cespedes (Yahoo Sports)|
He also worked as an actor, most notably in John Carpenter's 'They Live.' His rep said he died Thursday in his sleep.
Yoenis Cespedes put on a scintillating show at Citi Field while winning the 2013 Home Run Derby. Now he has two months to power the New York Mets into the playoffs. Eagerly chasing offense as the clock ticked down on Friday's trade deadline, the Mets landed the big right-handed bat they desperately needed by acquiring Cespedes from Detroit for two minor league pitchers.
|Mexican judge suspends U.S. extradition order for fugitive 'Chapo' Guzman||Skins add LB Galette to pass rush, despite off-field issues (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.
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.
|Exclusive: Donald Trump's companies have sought visas to import at least 1,100 workers||Woods in contention at Quicken Loans after a 5-under 66 (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.
Tiger Woods showed a rare flash of anger on a mostly stress-free day when his second shot on the eighth hole failed to clear a massive fairway bunker. The mistake on the par-5 hole set up the signature moment of a 5-under 66 on Friday in the Quicken Loans National that put Woods in contention for his first victory in nearly two years. ''If I keep hitting good putts, eventually they're going to go in,'' Woods said.

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.
