Both sides said progress has been made in the NHL's labor dispute, but the lockout is far from over. Representatives from the NHL and the players' union met Saturday night at an undisclosed location and did not end their session until 1 a.m. They did not come close to a settlement, but at least they are negotiating. It was their first face-to-face meeting in 16 days. The sides reportedly will meet again Tuesday in New York. Bill Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner, and Steve Fehr, special counsel for the NHL Players' Association, were at Saturday's lengthy session.

MOGADISHU, Somalia - At the beginning of the year, armed Islamic extremists held sway over most of Mogadishu. Today, this war-scarred capital is secure enough to host the first visit by the U.N. secretary-general in nearly two decades. Ban Ki-moon announced during a surprise visit to Mogadishu on Friday that the United Nations will reopen its political offices in this seaside capital, a city heavily scarred by war. The announcement underscored the security progress made by African Union troops in the fight against al-Shabab militants, but also of the need for the U.N. to more closely monitor the Somali government, which is funded by foreign donors.

Jarmoler, 8, lives in the moment and savors each day. His sociable, friendly and affectionate nature is plain to see. As he picks up toy animals from Noah's Ark, he offers a running commentary on his life in general: "We were going home in the car and I saw cows eating grass. I just have a dog and I feed him and give him water. " He looks startled when he's asked if pigs fly. "No," he replies, "but birds do, and Superman. I like gym in school. We play kickball and basketball.

On an evening when the 4,500 visitors to McGonigle Hall got to see the best and worst the Atlantic 10 Conference has to offer, coach John Chaney added a peek at Temple's basketball future. There was plenty of green, and even more rough edges, but if you squinted hard enough and quickly factored in coaching and maturity, the years 1989 and 1990 looked just as inviting as March of 1988. And that was before anyone stopped to paint into the picture 6-1 point guard Mike Harden (sitting out this season due to Proposition 48)

By Khalid Pitts Donald Trump is many things, but in at least one area he would be totally unique if elected president: He would be the only leader of any nation to reject the science and dangers of climate change. A new study from the Sierra Club reveals that every current world leader recognizes both the science of climate change and the dangers it poses to humanity. Some have assumed that leaders of other nations, including those most dependent on fossil fuels or led by despots, hold similar views regarding climate denial and opposition to all climate action.

It would have been a typical young professionals happy hour - cheese platters, cocktails, polite conversation - but for the skull in the glass case at the front of the room. And the photos of skulls on the wall. And the wall of skulls in the next room, down the way from the eight-foot-long preserved megacolon and the cross-sections of various cysts. But it's here - at the Mutter Museum, one of the city's oldest, weirdest, and hands-down goriest tourist attractions - that the storied College of Physicians is trying to change the very makeup of its profession.

It was not hard to imagine a September in which the Phillies, while playing meaningless baseball, looked different. They could stick Nick Williams and Roman Quinn in the outfield, J.P. Crawford at shortstop, and Jorge Alfaro or Andrew Knapp behind the plate. This was in the spring, when the Phillies broke camp with a lineup full of placeholders, and optimism prevailed. Instead, the season will end with much of the same. The prospects have had mixed results. The players in the majors have combined to produce a .296 on-base percentage, which ranks dead last in baseball and is the worst clip for a Phillies team since 1968.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - It does not say anything about failure or frustration when a player signs a professional baseball contract, but those two things are every bit as guaranteed as the money in the signing bonus. The only unknowns are when a player will have to confront them and how he will deal with the inevitable struggles and strains that come with throwing, hitting and fielding a baseball. Cornelius Cleopatrick Randolph, the 10th overall pick in last year's draft, got a crash course in failure and frustration in his first full season in the Phillies' organization.

As the Phillies tested a rookie's limits, a smattering of cheers spread across the smallest crowd of the season at Citizens Bank Park. Jake Thompson lugged a 9.78 ERA into Monday night's 4-0 loss to the first-place Nationals. There he stood, one pitch from completing seven innings. Washington rookie Trea Turner fouled a fastball and a change-up. Thompson gained much-needed confidence deeper into the night. So he had enough conviction to throw a full-count slider for his 111th pitch.

Three-year-old Meghan O'Donnell stood up and screamed in agony, seemingly out of the blue. Her parents noticed that her right ankle was swollen. Doctors at the community hospital put the ankle in a cast, concluding that it was broken. But when the cast was removed three weeks later, the toddler's pain and swelling were no better. That led to blood tests, bone scans, MRIs and much more. At the end of the six-week diagnostic odyssey, the words "juvenile idiopathic arthritis" left them reeling.

In less than six weeks, the 76ers will begin what can accurately be called their most anticipated training camp since Allen Iverson's distaste for poom-poom pants became public knowledge. It's no wonder why. This will be a different team and a different season, tank-free. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric will be making their NBA debuts. Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, the two big men who may or may not be part of the team's long-term future, have a chance to show how much they've strengthened the deficiencies in their games or whether they've strengthened them at all. Coach Brett Brown will finally have some seasoned veterans - Jerryd Bayless, Gerald Henderson, Sergio Rodriguez - to add to his regular rotation of players.

Carson Wentz might not be practicing because of a hairline fracture in his ribs, but offensive coordinator Frank Reich said that won't halt Wentz's development this summer. "It's still easy for him to grow," Reich said. "You can get the mental reps. You can still get a lot of film study and still be interacting with the players. Maybe even to more of an extent, interacting with the receivers, and talking about what you expect as a quarterback. And we certainly expect no slowing down the process as far as growing mentally.

Comcast Corp.'s second-quarter revenues rose a slim 2.8 percent and the company reported a modest drop in profits as its slate of Hollywood movies - rocket-fueled in 2015 by the release of Furious 7 and Jurassic World - failed to repeat that success. Otherwise the cable and entertainment conglomerate had a solid quarter as its cable-TV business continued to heal - video subscriber losses were a negligible 4,000 compared with 69,000 in the year-ago quarter - and NBC broadcast-TV revenue rose 17 percent on more licensing and retransmission fees.

By Erec Smith On July 12, in the twilight of his second term, President Obama spoke at the funerals of the officers slain in Dallas, prescribing unity and collaboration as the antidotes to America's racial divide. His speech came more than eight years after his campaign speech "A More Perfect Union," delivered as he sought the presidency. As his time in office winds down, Obama's presidency is bookended by speeches about race and unity because as a nation, we prefer to sit back and wait for someone to solve the problem instead of taking it on ourselves.
