According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, Welker filed an appeal two weeks ago and was notified on Tuesday that he lost. Welker, who finished the 2013 season with 10 touchdowns and 778 receiving yards, returned to practice on Tuesday nine days after suffering a concussion in a preseason game.

Middle East Time Bomb: The Real Aim of ISIS Is to Replace the Saud Family as the New Emirs of Arabia

This article is Part II of Alastair Crooke’s historical analysis of the roots of ISIS and its impact on the future of the Middle East.

BEIRUT — ISIS is indeed a veritable time bomb inserted into the heart of the Middle East. But its destructive power is not as commonly understood. It is not with the “March of the Beheaders”; it is not with the killings; the seizure of towns and villages; the harshest of “justice” — terrible though they are — that its true explosive power lies. It is yet more potent than its exponential pull on …read more

Its 100 photo stories move beyond the stereotypes and clichés that fill so much of the world’s media to explore the lives of people whose aspirations and achievements are at least as noteworthy as any member of the world’s richest 1 percent.

ISIS Threatens To Execute British Aid Worker David Haines

In a video that appears to show the beheading of an American journalist, militants of the Islamic State group in Syria have threatened to take the life of another hostage.

The video, released Tuesday, purports to show the killing of U.S. reporter Steven Sotloff at the hands of an IS member. The video also includes a threat to behead a man the militants identify as David Cawthorne Haines, a British aid worker, if the U.S. continues its strikes against the extremist group.

Britain’s Foreign Office has not yet confirmed whether the hostage is Haines.<br …read more

Fred Ryan, Next Washington Post Publisher, Signals More Growth In Bezos Era

NEW YORK — Fred Ryan, the incoming publisher and chief executive of The Washington Post, said Tuesday that the news organization plans to continue expanding under owner Jeff Bezos.

“You can’t shrink your way to success,” Ryan said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “Growth is the way to continue to build a strong news organization.”

Such statements will surely be welcome in the Post’s newsroom, which witnessed staff reductions, the closing of domestic bureaus, and diminished national and international ambitions during the seven-year tenure of outgoing publisher Katharine Weymouth.

The Post’s retrenchment can’t …read more

How Taking Down A "Big Tiger" Is Establishing the Rule of Law in China

china digital

SHANGHAI — The downfall of Zhou Yongkang, a “big tiger” top official who in the past would have been considered immune to corruption investigations, is of great practical significance. It sets a new milestone in China’s deepening anti-graft campaign.

What we should remember, however, is that as a former member of the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party, Zhou had served as China’s political-legal helmsman for as long as a decade. How much money he and his connections had rendered is not a big concern. Instead, of most consequence is the harm resulting from his …read more

Pat Quinn: Chris Christie Is 'On The Wrong Track' On Minimum Wage

Gov. Pat Quinn (D-Ill.) made the case for a minimum wage hike and hit back at Republican governors from whom he’s garnered criticism during a Tuesday HuffPost Live appearance.

Quinn is currently taking the “Minimum Wage Challenge” and living on $79 over seven days, a number he arrived at after removing taxes, housing and transportation costs from a week’s worth of wages.

“There’s something just not right if you work 40 hours a week and you have to live in poverty,” he said. “We want to eliminate poverty and one of the best ways to do …read more
