    BARCELONA and Liverpool have gone in different directions since the Catalan giants shelled out £135million for Philippe Coutinho back in January 2018. The LaLiga giants thought they had secured the signature of one of the world's best players, and a potential long-term replacement for Andres Iniesta - who would depart for Vissel Kobe six months later. 6Philippe Coutinho has struggled at BarcelonaCredit: Getty But it has instead been Jurgen Klopp's Reds that have flourished, as the German was able to revitalise his squad following the sale of the Brazilian. Liverpool were able to sell Elvis and buy The Beatles, and his side quickly reaped the benefits. They reached the Champions League final by the end of that season, before beating Spurs a year later to win their sixth European Cup crown. A historic Premier League title was to follow... with a number of players bought after the Coutinho sale playing key roles. As for the 29-year-old himself, he has struggled to make any sort of impact at all at his dream home - being shunted out to Bayern on loan...
    VIDEO4:2704:27What to do if you win the lotterySaving Powerball's top prize has surged yet again, vaulting it into the top 10 largest jackpots in U.S. lottery history. With no one matching all six numbers drawn Wednesday night, the jackpot is now an estimated $620 million for Saturday night's drawing. If there's a winning ticket, it would be the 10th-largest lottery prize won — and still $980 million behind the largest ever: a $1.6 billion Powerball prize won in January 2016. The jackpot has been growing since early June when a single ticket sold in Florida won $286 million. Since then, there have been 38 drawings with no grand prize winner. The cash value — which most winners choose instead of an annuity spread over 30 years — for this $620 million jackpot is $446 million. That amount would be reduced by a 24% federal tax withholding of about $107 million, as well as any state taxes due. And, more would likely be owed to the IRS at tax time. Despite the sizeable share that goes to taxes, the windfall would...

    What is the biggest upset of the 2021 NCAA Tournament? Was it Oral Roberts over Ohio State? North Texas over Purdue? Was it UCLA surging from a First Four position to the Final Four? Or was it, perhaps, the ability of the NCAA organizing team to construct an environment for the 68 competing teams that has allowed 63 of 64 games to date to go on as planned. Only VCU, of the 64 teams that have been eliminated to date, went home without a loss. There were so many doubts expressed about whether the NCAA could pull this off, and there has been so little appreciation apparent for getting this far with the bare minimum of significant COVID interruptions. MORE: Why this has been the maddest March Madness ever The NCAA has not been perfect in this. The debacle with five officials having to leave the event because of contact tracing that developed in large part because there was not sufficient hotel space available when the refs arrived — that was not a great moment. But it seems more of...
    Facebook is introducing a handful of new features that will give users greater control over their News Feed, including an easier way to turn off the feed’s algorithmic ranking and display content in the order it was posted instead. The changes build on previous tweaks to News Feed functionality. Last October, Facebook introduced a “Favorites” tool that allows users to select up to thirty friends and pages, prioritizing their content or displaying it in a separate feed. The company also offers users the option to sort their feeds by “most recent,” but buries these options in obscure menus. Facebook is now making these “Favorites” and “Recent” filters much more prominent, putting them right at the top of the News Feed as separate tabs that users can switch between. You can see what that looks like in the screenshots below: The News Feed filter bar will let users swap between algorithmic, chronological, and “favorites” filters.

    It’s not Gonzaga and the rest. It’s Gonzaga and what’s left. Some of the teams that might have been able to compete with the Zags for the 2021 NCAA championship could not survive the early rounds of this year’s March Madness: Iowa, Oklahoma State and especially Illinois. Of the teams that remain, only Baylor, Alabama and Michigan are close to the same class. The tournament is a funny thing, though, so it’s possible, though not likely, that someone other than those three could defeat the Zags and open up the championship for everyone still involved. Or Alabama or Michigan could pull it off and then have to fend off someone such as Baylor to complete the process of winning the championship. This is our ranking of the 16 teams that remain in the tournament, not on their achievement to date but on the potential to win the four games that are necessary to claim the championship from here. They are based largely on a combination of NBA-level talent, each team’s tournament draw, offensive and defensive efficiency and the presence of...
    Sometimes it’s the team that didn’t win it all that we remember most. This year marks the 23rd season since the BCS era began in 1998, a system that eventually gave way to the College Football Playoff, but still left us with several teams more remembered for the fact they didn’t win the national title. Ohio State became the latest team to lose the College Football Playoff championship in Monday’s 52-24 loss to Alabama, but Clemson did not make this list. Ohio State did based on our criteria of picking one team per season that didn’t win it all. Is that debatable? Absolutely given the controversy that surrounded the Buckeyes’ 29-23 loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.  We’re sticking with our choice, and Ohio State joins a list of could-have-been-champions.  MORE: SN Preason Top 25 for 2021 We did the same exercise for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in March. So, which teams didn’t win it all but remain in our minds this time of year? Here is a closer look: Record: 11-1Points for/against: 34.3 (16th), 21.3 (30th)All-Americans: NoneThat...
    ISRAEL ADESANYA has admitted he 'doesn't know what it means' to have topped a UFC power ranking leaderboard. ESPN released their first chart of MMA's top performers earlier this week. 3Israel Adesanya has been named top of a 'power ranking' of MMA fightersCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Conor McGregor could steal the honour with victory over Dustin PoirierCredit: AFP or licensors As the octagon's middleweight king, Adesanya was awarded the number one spot - ahead of Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. The 31-year-old responded by tweeting: "Dunno what it means but ????." He also quoted Kanye West to add: "It’s provocative… gets the people going." Over 11,000 fans 'liked' Adesanya's tweet and it is precisely his social media following that pushed the Nigeria-born fighter to the top of the list. ESPN's 'power' rankings differ from the pound-to-pound judgements, taking into account a fighter's success, momentum and star power. A September victory over Paulo Costa counted as Adesanya's second win of the year and he is next tipped to step up to light-heavyweight. Jan Blachowicz claimed that belt on the...

    Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce isn’t too worried about where Patrick Mahomes landed on The NFL Network's Top 100 players of 2020. The NFL Network revealed Wednesday that Mahomes came in at No. 4, behind Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson, Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. POST MALONE GETS NEW INK AFTER LOSING IN BEER PONG TO CHIEFS’ PATRICK MAHOMES, TRAVIS KELCE  "It's TV land, man," Kelce told reporters Thursday, the NFL Network reported. "It is what it is." Mahomes threw 26 touchdown passes and 4,031 passing yards while only garnering five interceptions last season which culminated in a Super Bowl victory. He signed a historic contract extension worth up to $503 million earlier this month which will keep him in Kansas City through the 2031 NFL season. While most in the league were shocked by the ranking, which also had Mahomes ranked third overall for his position--again behind Jackson and Wilson--Mahomes had a simple message.

    Live Recording of Nick Corderos One-Man Show to Be Released on His Birthday Fact check: New England journal article taken out of context, didnt bash face masks Which sports will make it through COVID-19 in 2020? Ranking them most to least likely North America’s five most popular team sports — the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and college football — are approaching their return. Some sooner than others, of course — baseball will start on Thursday, while the NFL isn’t slated to go until September 10. Sports can exist during a pandemic. The UFC, PGA Tour and NASCAR are all barreling along with only minimal bumps (albeit thanks to tremendous effort and expense ). Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League have both survived early struggles to settle in. We’ve seen everything from soccer in Europe to baseball in Asia work well. What about with the big five though? Everyone is determined to give this a try, but the nature of each sport means that the challenges, and possibilities, vary wildly. What will work for one might be...
    Independence Day is an occasion for Americans to recognize the hard-won freedoms they enjoy every day. But according to a recent analysis, some Americans are more independent than others. And in New York, one of the most serious limiting factors is government. Financial analysis website WalletHub recently ranked the 50 states from most to least independent. The study established five primary criteria as the foundation of its rankings: finance, government, job-market, international trade, and vice. These categories, in turn, were looked at by using a set of 39 metrics ranging from "retail opioid prescriptions dispensed per 100 persons" to the median credit score of a state. The Empire State came in 21st on the list, nestled between Washington at 20, and Wyoming at 22. While New York claimed first place in its independence from vice and a respectable 11 place for financial independence, its overall score was hampered by placing 36 and 38 in job-market dependency and government dependency, respectively. New York’s score was middling for the Northeast; while New York scored better than Rhode...
