• Europe demands new Greek debt plan at crisis summit

    European leaders warned Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to present new bailout proposals at an emergency summit on Tuesday or risk leaving the euro, after Greeks defiantly voted 'No' to further austerity in a referendum. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, heads of eurozone's largest economies, presented a united front on the eve of the summit, urging Tsipras to make "precise" proposals in a bid to rebuild shattered trust and restart negotiations. "It is now up to the government of Alexis Tsipras to make serious, credible proposals so that this willingness to stay in the eurozone can translate into a lasting programme," Hollande said Monday after crisis talks with Merkel in Paris.

  • Mayweather stripped of title he won in Pacquiao fight

    Mayweather, who improved to 48-0 by beating Pacquiao in May, missed a deadline by which he had to pay a $200,000 (£128,264) sanctioning fee from the fight and vacate the junior middleweight title he also held, the WBO said in a statement. The WBO said it is against rules for boxers to hold world titles in multiple weight classes and that Mayweather had to indicate which weight division he would retain. Mayweather, who finished ahead on all three scorecards of what proved to be the top-grossing prize fight of all-time, had until 4:30 p.m. ET (2030 GMT) last Friday to advise the WBO of his position.

  • Satanic Temple sees Arkansas as possible monument location

    An Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling that will rid the Capitol grounds of a religious monument has simultaneously scuttled the plans of a group advocating for a Satanic statue there, and they now hope to enshrine the deity outside the Arkansas Statehouse. The Satanic Temple, which advocates for the separation of church and state, spent more than $100,000 to design and construct an 8½-foot-tall bronze Baphomet, which depicts Satan as a goat-headed figure with horns, hooves, wings and a beard. With Oklahoma justices outlawing a Ten Commandments display from around its Capitol, The Satanic Temple has turned its attention to Arkansas, where lawmakers this year approved a similar Ten Commandments display on public land.

  • Bronx man suing Jay Z over Roc-A-Fella logo seeks judge's recusal

    A Bronx, New York clothing designer suing Jay Z for royalties from the Roc-A-Fella Records logo is seeking the recusal of a federal judge overseeing the $7 million lawsuit. In a Monday court filing, plaintiff Dwayne Walker said U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald Ellis in Manhattan should take himself off the case "because a reasonable person would question his impartiality." Ellis' chambers declined to comment. Walker accused the judge of issuing inconsistent rulings that favored Jay Z, the rap star and music entrepreneur whose given name is Shawn Carter Walker, and other defendants including Roc-A-Fella Records and its parent Universal Music Group Inc, a unit of Vivendi SA. Ellis was also accused of basing one ruling on a private call from a lawyer for the corporate defendants "without even reaching out to the plaintiff" for his views.
