Thursday 22:51 GMT

With Disney and Comcast both bidding for Fox's entertainment empire, Hollywood's Fox employees won't be connected with Fox News for long.

Today 14:38 GMT

Ball girls, ball boys, ball men and ball women at the United States Open will have a very different job, starting with this summer’s tournament.

They now must roll balls on the ground rather than exchange them in the air around the court because, in simplest terms, too many just cannot throw the ball overhand well enough. Throwing — not even catching — is the toughest part of the job to master, tournament officials said, the one skill that has eliminated the most candidates who were otherwise qualified.
