• Football: Revamped Liverpool making case for the defence

    Liverpool are a long way from the free-scoring side who almost won the Premier League two seasons ago, but their new-look defence is providing plenty of encouragement for boss Brendan Rodgers ahead of Saturday's clash with West Ham. With no goals conceded in Liverpool's opening three matches, Rodgers can feel a degree of confidence before a home game against West Ham, who have not won at Anfield since 1964. The arrivals of Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez have done much to strengthen the Liverpool full-back positions, while James Milner has given the midfield a solid look.

  • China's latest copycat victim: Goldman Sachs

    A staffer at a Chinese finance company named Goldman Sachs said any similarity to the multi-billion-dollar US investment giant was unintentional Thursday, weeks after a Chinese man was arrested for setting up a fake bank branch. Goldman Sachs (Shenzhen) Financial Leasing Co., operating in the southern boomtown next to Hong Kong, has an almost identical name to New York-based financial institution, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. "We don't have any connection with the US Goldman Sachs," a woman who answered the company's listed phone number told AFP. The company uses the same Chinese characters as Goldman Sachs does officially in the country, the world's second-largest economy.

  • Mars Hoaxes! 6 Stubborn Red Planet Conspiracy Theories

The so-called Mars Hoax (which started in 2003 after a real-life close approach of Mars to the Earth) is just one of a series of false claims concerning the Red Planet. Readers apparently missed the line saying that it would take a 75-power magnification in a telescope to make Mars appear as big as the full moon.

    Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose strenuously denied Thursday "meritless" claims that he raped an ex-girlfriend, saying the accusation was just an attempt to make money. In a lawsuit filed on Wednesday the unnamed woman said she was gang-raped by Rose and two others after the group attended a party at a Beverly Hills home in August 2013. The woman accused the men of placing a drug in her drink and later raping her when she was in an "incapacitated state of consciousness." "This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete," said a statement issued on Rose's behalf by lawyer Lisa Cohen.
