Coach Rivers signs extension with Clippers

Doc Rivers, the head coach who helped his Los Angeles Clippers players navigate the turbulent waters of the Donald Sterling scandal, will stay with the club through the 2018-19 NBA seasonDoc Rivers, the head coach who helped his Los Angeles Clippers players navigate the turbulent waters of the Donald Sterling scandal, will stay with the club through the 2018-19 NBA season. The Clippers announced on Wednesday they had agreed a contract extension with Rivers, who led them to a franchise-best 57-25 record and a second straight Pacific Division title in his first campaign with the club. His future with the Clippers had become uncertain in the wake of the scandal involving former owner Sterling, who received a lifetime ban from the NBA after racist remarks he made to a woman friend became public. The team has since been sold for $2 billion to former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer, who praised Rivers on Wednesday.

Under-pressure Peng tells Li Na – wish you were here

Peng Shuai of China celebrates after defeating Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland during the 2014 US Open women's singles match on August 27, 2014 in New YorkPeng Shuai admits she feels the huge burden of Chinese expectation in the absence of superstar Li Na after stunning Polish fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska at the US Open on Wednesday. The win immediately swung the spotlight on the softly-spoken Tianjin native after world number three compatriot Li, the Australian Open champion and 2011 French Open winner, was forced to skip the tournament with a knee injury. "I prefer to have Li Na here. I just want to focus and enjoy my tennis," said Peng who added that at least having five other Chinese in the main draw helped ease the burden.

Primary reveals Democrat Crist’s weak spots in Florida governor’s race

Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist waves after meeting supporters outside the North Miami Public Library in MiamiBy Letitia Stein TAMPA Fla. (Reuters) – Florida voters handed Charlie Crist his first victory as a Democrat in Tuesday's primary election for governor, while also exposing weaknesses in his nationally watched bid to take back the job he once held as a Republican. Crist won almost 75 percent of Democratic votes in a widely expected defeat of a primary challenger. Some of the lowest levels afflicted the Democratic base in south Florida. Republican enthusiasm outpaced the Democratic showing in the critical swing region in the central part of the state, said Susan MacManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Obama crafts legal rationale for immigration steps

FILE - This Aug. 1, 2014 file photo shows President Barack Obama speaking in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, Friday, Aug. 1, 2014. The president spoke on various topics including the economy, immigration, Ukraine and the Middle East. The White House is crafting a blame-it-on-Congress legal justification to back up President Barack Obama's impending executive actions on immigration. Facing an expect onslaught of opposition, the administration plans to argue that by failing to provide enough resources to fully enforce U.S. laws, lawmakers have ceded wide latitude to White House to prioritize deportations, administration officials and legal experts said. But Republicans, too, are exploring their legal options for stopping Obama from what they’ve deemed an egregious presidential overstep.

New Brazil poll shows Silva beating Rousseff in runoff

Presidential candidate and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff speaks during the first television debate in Sao PauloBy Anthony Boadle BRASILIA (Reuters) – Environmentalist Marina Silva would handily beat President Dilma Rousseff if Brazil's October election goes to a runoff, a poll showed on Wednesday, an outcome that seemed unimaginable just a few weeks ago and one that would put an end to 12 years of Workers' Party rule. Silva would win 43.7 percent of the votes to 37.8 percent for Rousseff in a runoff, said the survey by polling firm MDA. Both polls point to a probable runoff because Rousseff looks unlikely to win more than 50 percent of votes in the Oct. 5 election. Silva has clearly pushed the other main opposition candidate and market favorite, centrist Aecio Neves, into third place and is luring away some of his potential voters, the polls showed.

Shambolic election campaign leaves Indonesia’s president-elect much to prove

File photo of Indonesia's presidential candidate Joko "Jokowi" Widodo gesturing during an interview with Reuters in JakartaBy Kanupriya Kapoor JAKARTA (Reuters) – When he was nominated in March as a candidate for Indonesia's presidential election, polls showed Joko "Jokowi" Widodo had a 30-point lead over the man who would become his main challenger, former army general Prabowo Subianto.  But after three months of shambolic and lacklustre campaigning, the wildly popular governor of Jakarta was staring at defeat. "If you continue like this, it's clear we will lose," prominent businessman Sofjan Wanandi told Widodo and senior members of his Indonesian Democratic-Party of Struggle (PDI-P) at a crisis meeting on June 16. With election day less than three weeks away, Widodo had just been given a poll showing Prabowo trailed by only 1.8 points. We have to start fighting'," Widodo told the stunned gathering at a Jakarta hotel according to Wanandi, a key financier of Widodo's campaign, recalling the drama in a recent interview with Reuters.
