What is antifa - and does its rise mean the left is becoming more violent?

Concerns about possible violence are surfacing again in the Bay Area as the University of California, Berkeley, gears up for "Free Speech Week." The four-day event, hosted by a conservative student group, features controversial personalities from the so-called "alt right" - a coalition of groups that espouse white nationalism, anti-Semitism, and populism. The occasion follows counterprotests in Berkeley and other cities such as Portland that have given critics fodder to accuse leftist activists of stirring up violence in otherwise peaceful public gatherings. At the heart of the allegations is antifa, whose appearance at neo-Nazi and white nationalist rallies has led to heated, and...

The two companies rose earlier this week on news of the possible merger. T-Mobile's owner, Deutsche Telekom, would own a majority stake in the new company and the merger would be a stock-for-stock deal, according to a CNBC report.

A Brief History of North Korea
A Brief History of North Korea's Insults Toward World Leaders

The war of words continues to escalate between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who on Thursday referred to the head of state as a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard." This most recent barb followed Trump's remarks at his debut address to the U.N. General Assembly in New York, where he warned that the U.S. would "totally destroy North Korea" if forced to defend itself or its allies. It is rare to hear such language from an American leader, but not so from Pyongyang. State-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) has been the vessel for many an insult over the years, directed toward world leaders, close relatives and Hollywood stars.

LeBron James reportedly "invested" in helping Derrick Rose get next big contract

Last season, the former MVP made $21.3 million in the final year of a five-year rookie contract extension, and while injuries had slowed his game he was playing better. LeBron James wants to see his man Rose get paid again, Dave McMenamin of ESPN said on The Jump. Maybe Rose looks great at the mini-camp LeBron is hosting for the Cavs in Santa Barbara, I hope he is, but preseason everybody is "killing it" or "has lost/gained 15 pounds and is in the best shape of his life" or "has worked hard and now has an impressive jump shot." Rose probably does look great in Cavaliers camp against Jose Calderon, let's see how he looks once he has to go up against real NBA players.

The best option-time permitting-would be to forewarn Moscow of any attempt to shoot down a North Korean missile. If the United States decides to attempt to shoot down future North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests using the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system, it is likely that Russia's early warning system will not mistake the interceptors for a potential nuclear attack.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un Friday mocked Donald Trump as "mentally deranged" - and warned he will make the US president "pay dearly" for threatening the destruction of his country at the United Nations. Kim lashed out after Trump stunned the world on Tuesday when he used his maiden UN General Assembly speech to warn the North that Washington would "totally destroy" it if the US or its allies were attacked. The bellicose speech came after months of escalating tensions over advances in the rogue weapons programme operated by Pyongyang, which has defied tough sanctions to launch its sixth and largest nuclear test and to fire a series of missiles over Japan....

So, I did just that, throwing my hands up against one of the hulking doorways of the 1920s building.
