    On Monday, June 22, fitness model Ashleigh Jordan posted an incredible transformation photo to her Instagram page. The side-by-side snaps showed the model’s current figure alongside her figure from before she began training. On the left-hand side, viewers could see the snap of Ashleigh’s pre-fitness body.

    June 20 marks the date of the first three-peat by the Chicago Bulls. Despite finishing with 57 wins, the Bulls were only the second seed in the East. Averaging a league 32.6 points didn’t secure the MVP for Michael Jordan. He fell 3rd in the voting, behind winner Charles Barkley and runner up Hakeem Olajuwon. In the Conference Finals, they faced the #1 seed New York Knicks. They struggled initially, losing the first two games. But after that they went on a rampage, winning four straight games to advance to the Finals. They faced the MVP Barkley and the Phoenix Suns in the 1993 NBA Finals. After going up 2-0, they only won one out of the three next games...
    WAVERLY — Recuperating from a torn knee ligament is incredibly difficult to come back from. However, Waverly’s Anna Jordan handled the process with incredible fortitude — and as a result, came back a better player than when she left it. As a result of her efforts in successfully being the last line of defense for Waverly, the strong Southern Ohio Conference goalkeeper has found her way onto a collegiate roster at Shawnee State — where the incoming freshman hopes to aid the improvement of the position over the next four seasons under the direction of Natasha Ademakinwa and her staff. “It means a lot to me to be able to sign with Shawnee,” Jordan said. “I always knew that I...
    (CNN)Throughout the protests that have erupted across the US in response to George Floyd's death, we've seen troubling examples of police using excessive force. From cops pushing protesters — including a senior citizen — and pulling college students out of their car to confronting reporters just for doing their jobs. One such incident happened late last month, when police in Charleston, South Carolina arrested a 23-year-old protester in a downtown square.

    The RBC Heritage began two month later than usual with a little rain, a little sunshine and a lot of birdies, most of them from Jordan Spieth to turn a rough start into a furious finish. Ian Poulter holed a 30-foot birdie putt and followed with a 5-iron to 4 feet for a birdie that closed out his round of 7-under 64, giving him a share of the lead Thursday with Mark Hubbard at Hilton Head. “I’ve always loved coming here to play golf,” said Poulter, and he has plenty of company this year.

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Jordanian foreign minister made an unannounced visit to the West Bank on Thursday to “convey a message” to the Palestinian president, against the backdrop of Israel’s plans to annex parts of the territory. Both Jordan and the Palestinians strongly object to the Israeli plan and have been lobbying against it. The Jordanian foreign ministry says Ayman al-Safadi’s visit to Ramallah “comes within the framework of continuous coordination and consultation” between them on the issue. It come a day after a senior Emirati official warned that Israel’s planned annexation could lead Arab states to call for a single bi-national state for Israelis and Palestinians, rather than their traditional call for a two-state solution. Backed by...
    Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan criticized the FBI for failing to record the conversation between former agent Peter Strzok and General Michael Flynn. Noting that police officers often wear body cameras in order to protect themselves and anyone with whom they interact, Jordan expressed his concern and disappointment over the fact that Strzok hadn’t been obliged to do the same — and argued in favor of requiring such action in the future.

    Donald and Melania Trump may not sleep in the same bedroom, as has been reported time and time again, but Washington Post correspondent Mary Jordan reveals one thing the first lady shares with her husband: “modeling tips.”  If the president looks disheveled and bloated in every photo and walks with a rickety gait, it is not for lack of Melania trying, Jordan writes in the new biography The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump (Simon & Schuster). “Before a photo shoot, she has been heard telling Trump to slightly lift and extend his chin,” the book reveals. “At the 2018 state dinner she organized for the French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, she was...
    Donald Trump made anti-immigration sentiment a driving force of his 2016 presidential campaign, just he continues to rail against illegal immigration as part of a broader strategy to reduce the flow of foreigners coming into the United States. And yet, his Slovenian-born wife, Melania, is an immigrant who has never been fully transparent about her own immigrant journey, writes Mary Jordan, the author “The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump.” This lack of transparency has led to ongoing questions about whether there is “something improper” about how the former Melania Knauss came to the United States, said Jordan in her new biography of America’s sphinx-like first lady. Jordan, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post political reporter, noted...
    The top Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight committees called on their GOP colleagues Tuesday to support the reform and reauthorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, while urging members to further investigate how the tool was purportedly “weaponized” to target political opponents. In a memo to all House GOP members obtained by Fox News, the committee Republicans –­ including Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Mike Johnson, R-La., and others –­ noted the importance of more investigations into “how and why the Obama-Biden Administration weaponized our national security apparatus and the FISA process to target its political adversaries.” President Trump essentially has demanded as much as he recently torpedoed a FISA bill, sending lawmakers from both parties back to the drawing board.

    It’s a challenge that seems certain to go unmet, and yet is somewhat amusing to imagine: Ron Perlman has called on Ted Cruz to fight him for $50,000 in support of Black Lives Matter. On Saturday, after Matt Gaetz criticized U.S. soccer teams for repealing a policy that required athletes to stand for the national anthem, Perlman tweeted at the Florida congressman, as well as Donald Trump: “The US Soccer team called and you guessed it... said they couldn’t give any less of a fuck about what you two dipshits think.” Gaetz responded by accusing Perlman of hypocrisy for having played a white supremacist leader on Sons of Anarchy.

    First Lady Melania Trump’s aide is hitting back claims in a new book that suggest the first lady was not in a rush to move to the White House for another reason other than for their son, Barron Trump, being in the middle of a school year.

    ABINGDON, Va. (AP) — A Massachusetts man accused of killing an Appalachian Trail hiker and attacking another with a machete in Virginia last year has been declared competent to stand trial. The Bristol Herald Courier reports that U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Pamela Sargent reviewed the finding of mental health evaluators and ruled Thursday that the case against James Jordan can proceed. Jordan, 31, of West Yarmouth, Massachusetts, was arrested in May 2019 and charged with murder and assault after two hikers were attacked near the Wythe and Smyth county line in southwestern Virginia. He is accused of killing Ronald Sanchez Jr., 43, of Oklahoma, and injuring a Canadian woman. During a court hearing last July, Sargent found that Jordan...

    FORT WORTH, Texas — Maybe it’s taken a three-month pandemic pause to tournament play and — a home game as the sport returns to competition — to lift Jordan Spieth out of his three-year-long funk. This week’s Charles Schwab Challenge, the first PGA Tour event to be played since March, is at Colonial Country Club, a very familiar course for the native Texan Spieth. It, too, is a tournament at which he’s had terrific success, winning in 2016, posting two runners-up finishes (2015 and 2017) and with five top-10 finishes in the seven times he’s played it. His career scoring averaged is 67.79. Spieth has fallen from the penthouse to an abyss. Not long ago, he was the top-ranked golfer...
