Storm coach Dan Hughes ready for emotional game Sunday

Seattle coach Dan Hughes knows that his team’s upcoming game against Minnesota will be more emotional for him than many other games this season. It’s the Storm’s annual Breast Health Awareness night.

While breast cancer survivors will be honored at Sunday’s game, it has special meaning for Hughes, who had a cancerous tumor in his digestive tract removed during training camp. He has made a full recovery and returned to the bench on June 21 after missing the team’s first nine games.

“I’ve always told people that the best thing the WNBA has done is the Breast Health Awareness game,” Hughes said. “It has been special. When you hear the word cancer in your life, things that you’ve done in the past carry a little different meaning to you. You’re thankful. Let’s look at the reality. I went through cancer not quite knowing what they are going to find when they do the surgery. What they found was pretty good. I go through screenings every three months to make sure I’m a healthy guy.”

The Storm are hoping to raise $25,000 for the Swedish Cancer Institute’s Patient Assistance Fund, through an online auction , 50/50 raffle and promotional ticket offer. Hughes had his surgery at the Swedish Medical Center.

On Sunday, Hughes will remember a college teammate who was diagnosed with cancer soon after his diagnosis. The Storm’s leader sent a text offering his thoughts and saying that he had just gone through cancer surgery himself. Unfortunately, his former teammate died two weeks ago.

“There are different endings to this story. I feel called to represent the ones that keep going,” the 64-year-old Hughes said. “I’m a faithful guy. I feel God said I want you to deal with this, but I want you to keep going.”

Hughes recalled how one of the first people who reached out to him when he was diagnosed said that now he’ll not only be known as a basketball coach, but also a cancer survivor.

“Our Breast Cancer Awareness night you’ll see that,” he said. “Yes this is a deadly disease, but you also want to celebrate the people who continue to move on in life.”

The veteran coach did say that while cancer has given him more of an appreciation for life, it hasn’t completely changed his coaching habits. Losses still sting.

“I still bottom out, I can’t lie to you,” he said, laughing. “When I do bottom out, it does enter my mind. This is still way better than me being unable to live life. It does enter. I still bottom out. I don’t care what you’re dealing with, if you’re a coach and you lose, it’s just hell. But it does creep in. You’re out here living life and doing probably what you are supposed to be doing.”

One of the many things that Hughes learned while being sidelined by the cancer was how to delegate more to his assistants. That is something he admits his younger self could never have done.

“One of the first things cancer patients told me is that you have to trust other people and let other people help you,” he said. “If you’re a driven coach, 20 years ago, no way (I’d be able to delegate as much). You learn. My cancer rehab doctor said to me. You’ve been around, you’re a bright guy, you figure out how to help your team from where you are. Those are pretty good words. I feel a lot of appreciation for people doing their jobs around me that helps all of us do what we’re trying to do.”

Assistant coach Gary Kloppenburg, who took over while Hughes was out, said that he saw a change in the head coach.

“He definitely took the doctor’s advice,” Kloppenburg said. “He was still around as a consultant, but he had total faith in his staff that we could handle it until he got back.”

NCAA amends agent rules to no longer require college degree

The NCAA has backtracked on new certification standards and will no longer require a bachelor’s degree for a sports agent to represent Division I men’s basketball players who declare for the NBA draft while maintaining college eligibility.

The requirement drew criticism last week when the certification standards were revealed, including a social media blast by NBA star LeBron James. The requirement was quickly dubbed the “Rich Paul Rule” in reference to James’ agent, who does not have a college degree.

The NCAA announced Monday it would amend the standards so bachelor’s degrees would not be required for agents currently certified and in good standing with the NBA players union. The NCAA had said last week it modeled its rules after those of the National Basketball Players Association.

“We have been made aware of several current agents who have appropriately represented former student-athletes in their professional quest and whom the (NBPA) has granted waivers of its bachelor’s degree requirement,” the NCAA said in a statement. “While specific individuals were not considered when developing our process, we respect the NBPA’s determination of qualification and have amended our certification criteria.”

The NCAA rule permitting players to obtain an agent yet still return to school after withdrawing from the draft was part of recommendations from the Condoleezza Rice-led Commission on College Basketball, which was formed in response to a federal corruption investigation into the sport.

The change took place last August, and the first players to take advantage of the rule did so in the spring. They were permitted to sign with an agent certified by the NBPA — which was the stopgap standard until the NCAA put together its own certification requirements — though they had to terminate the deal if they decided to withdraw from the draft and return to school.

The amended policy still requires the agent to be certified by the NBPA for at least three consecutive years, as well as taking an in-person examination, going through a background check and paying required fees. In its release last week, the NCAA said agents would pay a $250 application fee and an annual $1,250 certification fee separate from NBPA certification requirements.

Hong Kong International Airport continues to see delays as thousands of protesters occupy terminals for a fifth day

More than 100 flights were canceled at Hong Kong International Airport Tuesday as thousands of demonstrators flooded the airport’s main terminal for the fifth consecutive day, prompting Chinese officials to liken the pro-democracy movement to “terrorism.”

The airport reopened Tuesday, just one day after protesters were able to successfully shut down all operations, only to see further delays as two separate arrival halls and one departure area were clogged by thousands of demonstrators.

The black-clad protesters held up signs in Simplified Chinese and English to appeal to travelers from mainland China and other parts of the world. “Democracy is a good thing,” said one sign in Simplified Chinese characters, which are used in mainland China instead of the Traditional Chinese script of Hong Kong.

For more than two months, Hong Kong has experienced mass protests urging democratic reforms and an investigation into police conduct. The shutdown of one of the world’s busiest transport hubs added to what authorities say is already a major blow to the financial hub’s crucial tourism industry.

Inside the mind of Jeffrey Epstein; Trump administration defends new green card rule

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start the day…

Epstein called criminalizing sex with teen girls a ‘cultural aberration’: report
Jeffrey Epstein had previously slammed criminalizing sex with teen girls as a “cultural aberration,” according to a reporter who recalled the convicted pedophile’s comments a year before his apparent suicide. Epstein was “unapologetic” and defiant to the end in his beliefs on men sleeping with underage girls, according to New York Times reporter James Stewart. “He said that criminalizing sex with teenage girls was a cultural aberration and that at times in history it was perfectly acceptable,” Stewart reported in the Times on Monday. Stewart spoke with Epstein at his Manhattan townhouse in 2018, a year before he reportedly killed himself inside of his New York City jail cell on Saturday.

Barr focuses on ‘irregularities’ at correctional facility, feds search one of Epstein’s homes
Attorney General William Barr on Monday blasted corrections officials and vowed to investigate the “serious irregularities” uncovered at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan where Epstein was held and found dead Saturday morning. The disgraced financier reportedly used a makeshift noose made from bedsheets to hang himself. Barr’s criticism came amid complaints about squalid, rat-infested cells and as union officials charge warnings about overworked employees at the understaffed facility went ignored for years.

Meanwhile, the FBI confirmed to Fox News that agents are searching Epstein’s Little Saint James Island home in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. The notorious island took on a string of nicknames over the years, including “Pedophile Island” and “Orgy Island.” The 66-year-old Epstein was known to frequent the lush property in the U.S. Virgin Islands. What’s more, an employee who reportedly worked there has claimed the wealthy financier kept a mysterious safe inside the main residence.

Trump administration defends new green card rule
The Trump administration on Monday issued a long-awaited rule strengthening the ability of federal officials to deny green cards to immigrants deemed likely to rely on government aid. Officials described the so-called “public charge” rule as a way to ensure those granted permanent residency are self-sufficient — and protect taxpayers in the process. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), defended the rule as strengthened a long-held standard for potential immigrants and green card holders. “The rule we issued today, a public charge rule, is intended to once again give meaningful effect to the public charge standard,” he said Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “What that is in ordinary English… is basically that we try to avoid having immigrants come through our process… who are likely in the future to become welfare-dependent.” Click on the video above to watch Cuccinelli’s interview from “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Senior citizen to Kamala Harris: ‘Leave our health care alone’
Presidential primary candidate Kamala Harris was confronted on Monday by an upset Iowa resident over the California senator’s plan to overhaul health care in the United States. The Democratic senator from California was speaking to voters at the Bickford Senior Living Center in Muscatine, Iowa, when one of the center’s residents challenged her on how she planned to pay for “Medicare for All.” “Leave our health care alone,” Roberta Jewell,  a 91-year-old resident at the senior living facility, told Harris as she was describing her campaign’s health care proposal. “We don’t want you to mess with it.”

Trump campaign aide: Scaramucci is about Scaramucci
The new public rift between President Trump and Anthony Scaramucci is slowly escalating as one campaign aide has described the former White House communications director as a self-centered man who abused young staffers during his short tenure. “Anthony Scaramucci is all about Anthony Scaramucci,” Mercedes Schlapp claimed Monday on “The Story.” “You can ask young staffers in the communications office that literally were terrorized by Anthony Scaramucci, where he only survived 11 days in that job.” In media interviews and on Twitter, Scaramucci has been critical of Trump, suggesting to CNN it might be best for the Republican Party to replace him at the top of the 2020 presidential ticket. In turn, the president claimed the hedge fund executive and short-timer in his administration just wants to appear on television.

Former porn star from viral ‘hijab’ scene reveals she made only $12G in career

Former adult film actress Mia Khalifa said that despite being one of the most popular porn stars on the Internet revealed she only made $12,000 during her career.

“People think I’m racking in millions from porn. Completely untrue. I made a TOTAL of around $12,000 in the industry and never saw a penny again after that,” Khalifa tweeted on Monday, sharing a recent interview with life coach Megan Abbott.

Khalifa, who spent only a few months as an adult actress, went viral in 2014 after filming a scene wearing a hijab. Her choice of headwear, she said, led to death threats from ISIS.

FORMER PORN ACTRESS MIA KHALIFA SHARES UPDATES AFTER SURGERY TO REPAIR BREAST ‘DEFLATED’ BY HOCKEY PUCK

“When I did the hijab scene that is when the ISIS death threats came in. All the news broke out—globally, not just in America. … I was banned from a handful of countries,” she told Abbott.

“What I actually said when they proposed the scene to me, and this is verbatim, was ‘You motherf*ckers are going to get me killed,” Khalifa recalled telling producers.

Despite her short-lived career in the adult film industry – she left the business in 2015 after only three months – Khalifa continues to be one of the most popular porn actresses with over 16 million Instagram followers and 2.7 million Twitter followers.

In 2016, she was ranked the most searched adult actress by xHamster a year after she retired.

Khalifa said she kept up her social media profile as a source of income but was looking to obtain a more traditional job. In her interview with Abbot she revealed that she worked as a paralegal and bookkeeper, and has since attempted to rebrand herself as a sports commentator.

Sen. Scott: Racism accusations against Trump ‘inconsistent with reality’

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., defended President Trump against accusations of racism Today while appearing on “The Ingraham Angle,” calling accusations “inconsistent with reality.”

“Well there’s no doubt that President Trump is not a racist and the facts are very simple that the same folks that voted for me voted for President Trump because President Trump made promises to the voters and he’s keeping the promises,” Scott said to guest host Jason Chaffetz.

TRUMP THROWS ‘SQUAD’ FEUD BACK AT PELOSI AFTER ‘RACIST’ ACCUSATION: ‘DEMOCRATS ALWAYS PLAY THE RACE CARD’

Republicans have accused Democrats of shifting the narrative to racism accusations against the president following former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s panned testimony.  Many Democrats are still calling for Trump’s impeachment.

The president has has also faced criticism recently following the the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio with his critics blaming his rhetoric for enflaming white supremacy.

Scott says Democrats are trying to avoid discussing a lackluster policy platform.

“If you were running on the left, would you run the Green New Deal? Would you run on the 70 percent new income tax? Would you run on a 4 percent wealth tax? Would you run on a financial transaction tax? No,” Scott said.

The senator called the racism narrative “tired.”

“Well you would run on some tired narrative that the president because he’s a Republican has to be somehow a racist,” Scott said.  “It’s a different dimension that I don’t understand.”

CHP officer, gunman dead in shootout near freeway: report

Westlake Legal Group CHP-Patrol CHP officer, gunman dead in shootout near freeway: report fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article a6afc5f2-c1ce-551f-b742-1da97190cad3

A California Highway Patrol officer was gunned down Monday in a shootout off the 215 Freeway, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The scene was chaotic. The Times reported that the suspect was stopped by an officer on a motorcycle. At some point, the suspect grabbed a rifle from inside the car and fired upon the officer approaching the vehicle. Other officers arrived at the scene and witnesses described a chaotic situation. One driver said bullets “flew through their windows.”

“We know his motive for this crime,” Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz said Monday night.

The shooter opened fire shortly after 5:30 p.m. after a CHP officer pulled over a white GMC pickup truck and decided to impound it.

“He called for a tow truck and was filling out the necessary paperwork” when the driver pulled a rifle from the truck and opened fire, said Scott Parker, assistant chief at the CHP’s Inland Division. The officer called for help and three other CHP officers arrived, who immediately faced gunfire and two were hit, Parker said.

A Riverside police officer and three Riverside County sheriff’s deputies also arrived and traded shots with the man before killing him at the scene, Diaz said.

“It was a long and horrific gun battle,” the chief said.

Video showed the gunman, apparently clad in black and wielding a military assault-style rifle, trading fire with officers and then retreating to crouch behind the front of his truck for cover, still trading shots.

Video after the shooting showed bullet holes in the front windows of two patrol cars and large holes blown in their back windows.

Parker said the first CHP officer who was wounded was taken by helicopter to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Another officer was hospitalized in critical condition but the third had only minor injuries.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the names of the slain CHP officer or the gunman.

However, family members identified the officer as 33-year-old Andre Moye, Jr., who was married and had been with the CHP about four years, KABC-TV reported.

Police earlier had said at least one civilian had been slightly injured by flying glass.

Parker said two civilians received superficial injuries and “they’re going to be OK.” Parker said.

Authorities did not immediately say what prompted the officer to stop and impound the truck. Investigators didn’t immediately know where the gunman came from or where he was headed, Diaz said.

After the shooting, dozens of law enforcement officers gathered outside of the hospital in nearby Moreno Valley. Snipers were posted on the roof as a precaution.

Dozens lined up and saluted as the officer’s flag-draped body was removed from the hospital and placed in a hearse. Motorcycle officers then led a procession as the hearse was driven to the county coroner’s office.

Pressley calls McConnell the ‘common enemy’ during mass shootings

Westlake Legal Group RT-.-Ayanna-Pressley Pressley calls McConnell the 'common enemy' during mass shootings Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/mitch-mcconnell fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 99ced9ea-3792-5997-ae75-cfa8b915d95a

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., declared Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was the “common enemy” during mass shootings during her Monday night appearance on “The Daily Show.”

After claiming that President Trump’s rhetoric is “exactly why” the El Paso mass shooting took place earlier this month, Pressley agreed with “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who suggested that guns are the “common factor” in mass shootings.

“Yes, guns are the common factor and the common enemy in all of this is Mitch McConnell,” Pressley said, which sparked applause from the audience. “So please give him a call and tell him I sent you.”

PROTESTERS GATHER OUTSIDE MCCONNELL’S KENTUCKY HOME, ONE CALLS FOR HIS STABBING ‘IN THE HEART’

She continued, “Why haven’t we acted? This gun violence is a public health crisis and epidemic. It’s an urban issue, it’s a rural issue, it’s a suburban issue, it’s transcendent… it is pervasive and it is growing.”

The “Squad” member went on to praise New Zealand for “banning assault weapons” shortly after its mass shooting in March and blamed inaction in the U.S. on “a deficit of political courage and leadership.”
