By John Raby The Associated Press Sun., Feb. 25, 2018 CHARLESTON, W.Va.—The death toll rose to at least five on Sunday after severe thunderstorms swept through the central U.S., spawning a tornado that flattened homes, gale force winds and widespread flooding from the Upper Midwest to Appalachia. The system that stretched from Texas to the Canadian Maritime provinces had prompted several emergency declarations even before the dangerous storms arrived. In southwestern Michigan, the body of a 48-year-old man was found floating in floodwaters Sunday in Kalamazoo, city Public Safety Lt. David Thomas said. Police were withholding the release of his name until notifying relatives.

In many sports, an athlete’s prime comes in their mid-20s and may carry into their early 30s. However, in some sports, even with younger ages, there are athletes who begin dominating exceedingly early. Our list of the 50 most dominant athletes compiled athletes of all ages across the world who have reached the pinnacle of their sports. Here, we have 25 athletes who are yet to turn 25 and who have already reached new heights in their respective games.

Warning: “Game of Thrones” spoilers ahead. Last week, we ranked the “Game of Thrones” characters based on their leadership abilities. About a third of the characters from that list died in season six’s brutal finale, and others showed more of their leadership skills during some significant plot developments. So here’s an update, based on the explosive, rallying, and altogether unappetizing events of last night’s episode. A few notes: This list only counts characters who are still alive on the show (not in the books). Also, it only takes into consideration individuals who could be counted as “leaders” – so more solitary characters who aren’t currently in leadership roles aren’t on here, like Arya Stark, Sandor Clegane, or Samwell Tarly. Lastly, it heavily favors things that happened this season. This list examines leadership ability, not overall power or importance. Now, here are … [Read more...] about Here’s how the remaining ‘Game of Thrones’ characters rank by leadership abilities

The captain took the weight and the blame. “It’s a big mistake and a bad time to make it,’’ said Dion Phaneuf, facing a phalanx of reporters in the funereal wake of a Game 4 loss, his face both pink from exertion and grey, a look of bruising around the eyes, in the eyes. “I take responsibility for it. It’s unacceptable.’’ Unacceptable might be harsh, though the outcome, the consequence, was heart-crushing. What Phaneuf did, with just over six minutes remaining in the first overtime period of the Eastern Conference quarter-final against Boston, was pinch at the point, stepping in to keep the play contained in the Bruin zone along the boards, a collision of bodies occurring as sticks flew in the air, raining wood. But Nathan Horton just barely poked the puck past Phaneuf. It was seized upon by David Krejci who verily flew down an open wing, 130 feet of ice covered, drawing a bead on James Reimer, using Milan Lucic as a passing decoy but … [Read more...] about Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf takes blame for Game 4 meltdown: DiManno
