From Underdog to Superstar: Scheffler Faces Unexpected Fame

More news - Recent news Scottie Scheffler’s rise to the pinnacle of golf has been nothing short of meteoric. Once considered a talented but unremarkable player, the American has become a global sensation in 2024. This newfound fame, however, presents a unique challenge for a man who previously held his privacy in high regard. Scheffler’s journey began with a dominant win at the Masters in 2022, cementing his place as a world-class golfer. However, his celebrity status remained relatively understated. Fast forward to 2024, and a series of events catapulted him into the spotlight. A series of major victories, including a second Masters victory, cemented his dominance. But it was a bizarre arrest in Louisville that truly propelled him into the pop culture stratosphere. Fans ral...

Brunson’s Loyalty Rewrites Knicks’ Future: A Win for Championship Aspirations

More news - News 24 hours Jalen Brunson defied convention this summer. While most players chase the biggest paycheck, Brunson prioritized winning in New York. The Knicks, eager to retain their rising star, offered a significant contract extension. But the really historic part? Brunson left a whopping $113 million on the table by opting into this deal a year early. The unprecedented move speaks volumes about Brunson’s dedication. He’s not just playing in New York, he’s invested in the team’s championship aspirations. That commitment goes beyond finances: He prioritizes building chemistry with teammates like Josh Hart and playing under Coach Thibodeau. Brunson’s decision is a gamble, but a calculated one. The new contract structure allows the Knicks to remain flexible un...

Parkinson’s expert makes frequent visits to the White House for eight months

Related media - News 24 hours According to official visitor logs, a Parkinson’s disease expert from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center visited the White House eight times over an eight-month period from last summer to last spring, and met at least once with President Biden’s doctor. The expert, Dr. Kevin Cannard, is a neurologist specializing in movement disorders who recently published a paper on Parkinson’s. The logs, released by the White House, document visits from July 2023 to March of this year. More recent visits, if any, would not be disclosed until later, according to the White House’s voluntary disclosure policy. It is unclear whether Dr. Cannard was in the White House specifically to consult with the president or for unrelated meetings. Dr. Cannard’s LinkedIn pag...

McIlroy reflects on US Open disappointment, vows to learn and move forward

More news - Recent news Rory McIlroy is using introspection and a change of scenery to process his heartbreaking U.S. Open finish. After missing putts on the final holes at Pinehurst, McIlroy took solitary walks through the busy streets of New York City. The walks served as a way to mentally unplug and gain perspective on the challenging tournament. A familiar pattern of frustration McIlroy described feeling like his "old self" for much of the final round, the version that was seeking major championship glory. He controlled the pace early, building a two-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau entering the 15th hole. However, a bogey on the 15th hole, followed by a missed short putt on the 16th, destroyed his momentum. McIlroy acknowledged a sense of unease creeping in as he waited...

Apple Vision Pro review: First-gen headset falls short

More news - Breaking news Seventeen years ago, Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone, a revolutionary device that combined an iPod, a telephone, and an Internet browser in one. At $500, it was expensive, but its innovation justified the cost, despite some initial flaws. Fast forward to today, and my experience with Apple’s new $3,500 Vision Pro headset has been less than stellar. This ski-goggle-style virtual reality headset aims to merge the physical and digital worlds. Apple bills it as a “space computer” designed for work, entertainment, and play. Without an advance review unit from Apple, I purchased the Vision Pro myself. With essential add-ons like a $200 case, $180 AirPods, and $150 prescription lens inserts, the cost quickly adds up. After using it for five days, I’m still not sol...

The Santa Fe Handbike Tour

More news - Breaking news The nervous energy was palpable as hundreds of cyclists, dressed in colorful Lycra suits, awaited the start of the 50-mile ride known as Medio Siglo from the Santa Fe Railyard, a hub of art galleries, restaurants, and a farmers market in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Finally, we began pedaling through town with eight motorcycle cops clearing the road and guarding intersections. We passed the Roundhouse, where the New Mexico Legislature meets. We passed Museum Hill, home to four museums exploring the Native American Southwest, the Spanish colonial past, and more. After about twelve miles, Santa Fe was behind us and we were on our own, rolling through rolling ranchland. It was the second day of a two-day cycling event that each spring draws more than 1,500 participant...

Young Yamal surprises France and leads Spain to Euro 2024 final

Related media - Recent news A spectacular goal from young talent Lamine Yamal sent Spain through to the final of Euro 2024 with a dramatic 2-1 victory over France at the Allianz Arena. The 16-year-old midfielder defied expectations with a breathtaking 21st-minute equaliser, cancelling out France's opener and silencing the previously dominant Kylian Mbappé. Yamal's moment of brilliance came after France had taken control. Mbappé, free from the constraints of his protective mask, set up a goal for Randal Kolo Muani, seemingly putting Les Bleus on course for another victory. But then, the universe changed. Yamal picked up a loose ball near the halfway line and danced past a bewildered Adrien Rabiot. With a touch worthy of a seasoned veteran, he unleashed a powerful left-footed ...

Autistic Employees Revolutionize Workplace Accommodations

More news - Breaking news When Chelsia Potts took her 10-year-old daughter to a psychologist for an evaluation for autism spectrum disorder, she decided, almost as an afterthought, to get tested herself. The results were surprising: Like her daughter, Ms. Potts was diagnosed with autism. At 35, Ms. Potts thought she was dealing with anxiety or something else. A first-generation college graduate, she had earned a Ph.D. in education and become a high-level administrator at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. After seeing a psychologist, she had to figure out how this diagnosis would affect her work life. “I was confused at first and kept it a secret,” Ms. Potts said. “I had an image of what an autistic person looked like, and it didn’t look like me.” She reflected on the ways she had com...

France Discovers a New Word: Ungovernable

Related media - Breaking news Instead of waking up on Monday in a country governed by the far right, France found itself in a situation similar to Italy's, where only patient parliamentary negotiation could lead to the formation of a viable coalition government. France rejected Marine Le Pen’s anti-immigration Rassemblement National in its legislative elections, once again demonstrating its deep-seated resistance to nationalist initiatives. The country voted for a resurgent left that, while it has not achieved absolute power, has shifted the political heart of the nation from an all-powerful presidency to Parliament. With the Paris Olympics less than three weeks away and the August exodus to the beaches or mountains a sacred feature of French life, talks to form a government could dr...
