|Obama gets Iran deal win as Senate Dems amass enough votes||Dodgers beat Giants 2-1 for 2nd win over rivals in same day (Yahoo Sports)|
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama secured a landmark foreign policy victory Wednesday as Senate Democrats amassed enough votes to ensure the Iran nuclear deal survives in Congress, despite ferocious opposition from Republicans and the government of Israel.
Nothing the San Francisco Giants did fazed Zack Greinke. It grew bigger as the game went on, causing Greinke to tweak his ankle and draw a visit from the trainer and the grounds crew. The Dodgers increased their division lead to 5 1/2 games after taking the series opener 5-4 in 14 innings in a game that ended at 12:39 a.m. PST Tuesday.
|Clerk in gay marriage fight: 'A heaven or hell decision'||Michigan's Rudock, Morris know who will start at QB vs Utah (Yahoo Sports)|
MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) — Kim Davis sat in a church pew on a Sunday morning about four years ago, listening as the man in the pulpit preached of forgiveness and God's grace.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh says the decision is made on who will be his starting quarterback for the season opener at Utah on Thursday. Jake Rudock and Shane Morris were listed as co-No. 1 quarterbacks on the depth chart released Monday.

|Hunt for 3 suspects in Illinois officer's death continues||Ex-Bills RB Fred Jackson meeting with the Seahawks (Yahoo Sports)|
A huge manhunt continued overnight for the suspects in the slaying of a veteran officer.
After being released by the Buffalo Bills, running back Fred Jackson is looking for an opportunity to reunite with former teammate Marshawn Lynch in Seattle. Jackson traveled to Seattle to meet with the Seahawks on Tuesday, but coach Pete Carroll cautioned that no deal has been struck. Carroll said Jackson would be going through a physical.
|Baltimore judge to weigh motions in high-profile police death case||Browns' Manziel says sore elbow improving, no surgery needed (Yahoo Sports)|
A Baltimore court will hear pretrial arguments on Wednesday in the case against six U.S. police officers accused in the death of a black man from an injury in police custody. The death of Freddie Gray, 25, in April drew worldwide attention when it triggered protests and a day of rioting, arson and looting. The case became part of a national debate on police treatment of minorities in the United States.
Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has dealt with a sore right arm since before he lifted the Heisman Trophy. Manziel, who hasn't thrown a pass in practice since Aug. 23 because of elbow soreness and tendinitis, said those issues date back to his freshman year at Texas A&M - when he made a dazzling play almost every game for the Aggies. The 22-year-old is confident that rest will help his elbow and the issue won't derail his NFL career.
|Texas police audio indicates deputy shooting victim was armed, suicidal||Steady in face of Kyrgios' 'antics,' Murray wins at US Open (Yahoo Sports)|
An audio recording released on Wednesday of a conversation between a dispatcher and Texas county deputies, whose fatal shooting of a man raised questions of whether they acted properly, indicate the man was armed and suicidal and had just harmed his wife and baby. Gilbert Flores, 41, was killed on Friday by two Bexar County deputies. A cell phone video of the incident, which took place near San Antonio, appeared to show the victim with his hands in the air before being shot.
Nick Kyrgios does what he wants and says what he wants on a tennis court, seemingly no matter the ramifications, and amid all the near-napping, cursing and racket smashing, he troubled Andy Murray for moments at the U.S. Open. In the tournament's most-anticipated first-round matchup, the No. 3-seeded Murray hit 18 aces, saved 11 of 14 break points and, perhaps most importantly, stayed steady in the face of Kyrgios' various distractions, putting together a 7-5, 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 victory Tuesday night. This was Kyrgios' first match since he was essentially put on probation by the ATP, with the threat of a 28-day suspension and $25,000 fine if he misbehaves at one of the tour's sanctioned events over the next six months.

Grenada Views and Opinions
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.
