Kawhi Leonard and Raptors take on Cavaliers in home opener

Thursday 13:35 GMT

When Kawhi Leonard stepped off the court on Jan. 13, his bizarre final season with the San Antonio Spurs was already done after only nine games.

Kawhi Leonard showcases versatility, still ‘shaking off some rust’ in Raptors pre-season debut. “Coming to practice and going home,” Leonard said, on his experience so far in Toronto. “And trying to find something that’s close to the house and just enjoy my family as much as I can because season is on the way, time is going to be limited at the house, so just to try to stay comfortable with my family, and spending time with them.”

Red Sox take 3-1 lead thanks to overturned home run

Friday 08:05 GMT

The Red Sox stand one win away from their fourth World Series appearance in 15 seasons, and their taut, 8-6 victory over the defending champion Astros Wednesday night in American League Championship Series Game 4 — putting them in position to clinch the AL pennant in Thursday night’s Game 5 at Minute Maid Park — will be remembered most of all for the controversial assistance they received from veteran umpire “Country Joe” West on a first-inning home run-turned-flyout by the Astros’ Jose Altuve. “You’re talking about the whole course of the game,” said Astros right fielder Josh Reddick, who described himself and his teammates as “pissed off” by the decision.

Friday 08:05 GMT

As President Trump continues his midterm media blitz, he is sharpening his language against the press even as some of its practitioners ramp up their criticism of his claims.

This was inevitable, given the sheer volume of words that the president is putting out there and the journalistic desire to fact-check the hell out of him. While he is making this FBN week, with back-to-back sessions with Stuart Varney and Trish Regan of Fox Business Network, Trump also did a lengthy interview with the AP.

A seven-bedroom Georgian mansion in a Scottish village close to Glasgow that has been expanded with the addition of two modern wings, came to the market last week asking for offers over £1.875 million (US$2.44 million).

"It still had the period features, but it wasn't a cozy modern family home," Mr. Stewart-Moore said, adding that the current owners reroofed, rewired, replumbed and redecorated throughout. It was "all about creating a house that was fit for modern-day family living," he said.

Houses intact after Hurricane Michael were often saved by low-cost reinforcements

Friday 01:31 GMT

In many cases, they were saved by additional strategically placed nails, some small metal connectors and window shutters that created a sealed package — low-cost reinforcements that determined whose home survived and whose was destroyed by the power of Hurricane Michael.

In tiny Greensboro, Fla., many houses suffered, and the power is still out six days after Michael made landfall 80 miles away.

U.S. Housing Construction Fell in September, Continuing Weak Stretch

Friday 01:31 GMT

Housing construction fell last month, continuing a weak stretch for the housing market driven by rising borrowing costs and expensive properties that are out of reach for most Americans.

To be sure, the broader trend shows continued new-home construction growth, as starts grew by 6.4% in the first nine months of 2018 compared with the same period a year earlier. A spate of recent economic data has illustrated this conundrum; demand should be strong, but rates and home prices are dampening it.

Friday 16:22 GMT

David Simpson is donating his kidney to a young woman Thursday in Washington, D.C., because his tissue is a perfect match, and her kidneys are failing and slowly poisoning her.. Simpson didn’t have to do it; he had an out.

While Fletcher and Simpson have opened their home and hearts to kids for years, a kidney donation is a new level of giving. Fletcher loves Hernandez as a daughter, too, she said, but she was hoping somebody on the list of potential donors other than her husband would be a match because she was concerned about the medical risk.

Classic ‘Charleston Single’ House Lists for $4M

Friday 21:52 GMT

It was later the joint property of three historically black churches in the city before turning over to private hands again in 1915, according to the agents.

The red-brick, three-story home employs the city’s oldest architectural style, known as the “Charleston single"—quirk of the old walled city in which colonial and revolutionary-era homes were built only one-room wide. Porches and main front doors on one side of these houses gave them the odd appearance of being rotated 90 degrees away from the street.

Northern Irish women still facing difficult choice over abortion

Saturday 05:09 GMT

Women in Northern Ireland who want an abortion are caught between the costs, stigma and complexities of travelling to Great Britain and the risk of prosecution if they access pills online to take at home, according to new research.

A policy change by the UK government last year allowed women from Northern Ireland to have a free abortion in England on the NHS, but it has not solved the problems they face, says a study based on a series of interviews published in a medical journal.
