NEW YORK — Nets general manager Sean Marks was suspended one game without pay and fined $25,000 by the NBA on Sunday for entering the referees’ locker room after Brooklyn’s loss to Philadelphia in Game 4 of their playoff series. Atkinson said coaches were told that wrapping players as they tried to roll to the basket would be a point of emphasis this season. He will serve his suspension Tuesday, when the 76ers try to wrap up the series in Game 5 in Philadelphia. Nets minority owner Joseph Tsai offered support for Marks on Twitter . “My partners and I have spoken and the entire Nets ownership group support our GM Sean Marks for protesting the wrong calls and missed calls,” he wrote.

LONDON — Before returning to the top of the Premier League, Liverpool got to savour a Manchester United humiliation. Now, unusually, Liverpool needs a swift recovery by its great rival after United’s despair at being routed 4-0 by Everton on Sunday. “If you are only motivated by winning the holy grail then something is wrong with you,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. Liverpool now has a club-record 88 Premier League points, beating the 86 managed in the 2008-09 season. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the 77th but Arsenal couldn’t find two more goals to extend its 10-match winning league run at home.

"It's really ironic," said Rudy Reimer, an archeologist with Simon Fraser University, who is also a member of the Squamish Nation. In 1877, under the Indian Act, the federal government allotted about 34 hectares of the land to the Squamish Nation and called it Kitsilano Indian Reserve no. In 1977, the Squamish Nation accused the federal government of failing to protect them from their reserve lands being wrongfully taken, according to Squamish Nation historical documents. The Squamish Nation thus, in 2002 regained a small section of the earlier reserve, today's Kitsilano Indian Reserve No. This is the area the Squamish Nation is proposing to build on today.

A popular travelling carnival has cut northern B.C. More rides, fewer showsThe family-operated West Coast Amusements, which has been running for four generations, isn't the only one facing a shifting landscape. Erin Fawcett, with the Carnival Museum in Ontario, says a lot has changed since the era of carnivals, which she described as the 1920s to 1940s. "The biggest difference between the old days of the carnivals and now is this: it's gotten way more expensive," she said. (West Coast Amusements/Facebook)In particular, tor travelling carnivals that bounce between towns, the cost of frequently relocating can be crippling.

The bill is moving forward two years after a state-mandated sea level rise adaptation report was made public to act as a guideline for future legislative action and planning. Research included in the report suggests Hawaii will see a 3-foot (0.9 metres) rise in ocean levels by the end of this century. University of Hawaii researcher Tiffany Anderson, who led the study, said traditional sea level forecasts use what is known as the “bathtub model” to measure where water will rise and flood land. “We’ve long suspected processes like shoreline erosion, waves overtopping and inundation would be additional factors for Hawaii,” Anderson said. “I think sea level rise and climate change impacts globally are going to have a huge disruptive effect on economies,” Lowen said.

BARCELONA, Spain — Karim Benzema hit a hat trick to lead Real Madrid to a 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish league on Sunday, extending his scoring run since the return of coach Zinedine Zidane. Out of the Champions League, and trailing Spanish leader Barcelona by 13 points in third place, Madrid’s players have nothing to play for other than pride. Benzema was already one of Zidane’s favourite players when they won three Champions League titles together before Zidane stepped down last summer– only to come back last month. “I am happy that Karim scored the goals, but I am sure that he is happier for the victory. Getafe leapfrogged Sevilla into fourth place, the last spot granting access to the Champions League next season.

Giuliani called the Trump campaign’s effort to get political help from representatives of the Russian government possibly ill-advised but not illegal. The Trump campaign was seeking harmful information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Mueller found no evidence of a conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign and made no decision on obstruction of justice. Giuliani said Trump’s legal team was weighing whether it would release a detailed written rebuttal to the Mueller report.

Sunday afternoon, with a chance for the Toronto Maple Leafs not just to beat the Boston Bruins, but eliminate them. The Leafs could be, ahem, “Canada’s team” now that Calgary and Winnipeg have stepped aside. So, yes Mitch Marner is an excellent player today and most likely going to be a great player, but not "the best ever seen”. Two good teams, one great game, We’ll see how it plays out on Sunday. My job, being in Toronto, working for the Toronto Star, is to cover the Toronto hockey team.
