The most recent Emmy winners for best drama were TV shows about the same irresistible premise: Succession is what binds “Game of Thrones,” “The Crown” and, of course, “Succession.” It’s now the subject of another Hollywood saga, and this one stars neither the royals nor the Roys. The latest epic tale began when Disney made the surprising move to lure Robert Iger out of retirement as chief executive last week and give Mr. Iger two years to help find the next Mr. Iger.

Democrat Becca Balint is the winner of Vermont’s at-large Congressional District race, NBC News projected. She is the first woman and the first LGBTQ person elected to Congress from the state. She added, "Tonight, after 231 years, Vermonters are sending a woman and openly gay person to Congress for the first time." Her victory ended Vermont's status as the only state never to have sent a woman to Congress. In 2020, she became the first woman and the first openly LGBTQ person to be president of the Vermont Senate.
The Brooklyn Nets are once again confronting what has become the NBA’s most familiar problem: What to do about Kyrie Irving? The supremely talented but volatile guard is at the center of another head-spinning saga that began last week with Irving linking on social media to a movie with anti-Semitic themes. The drama took yet another turn overnight when the Nets star apologized after days of refusing to express contrition.
Kyrie Irving told reporters that he took responsibility for sharing a documentary that ‘may have had some unfortunate falsehoods,’ but he refused to apologize or disavow the film. Kyrie Irving was suspended by the Brooklyn Nets for a minimum of five games without pay on Thursday night in response to the NBA star’s refusal to unequivocally disavow anti-Semitism after a weeklong drama that consumed the league. Hours after his suspension was announced, after declining to apologize or denounce anti-Semitism earlier in the day, Irving responded on Instagram apologizing for his comments for the first time.
Kyrie Irving told reporters that he took responsibility for sharing a documentary that ‘may have had some unfortunate falsehoods,’ but he refused to apologize or disavow the film. A battle between the NBA and Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving intensified on Thursday when league commissioner Adam Silver admonished Irving for not apologizing after he promoted a movie that contains anti-Semitic themes, only for Irving to respond defiantly. Irving and the Nets had on Wednesday issued a joint statement with the Anti-Defamation League saying the team and its point guard would contribute $1 million to organizations that work to “eradicate hate and intolerance.” The donation seemed to signal an intent to move past the controversy that began a week ago when Irving tweeted a link to the movie “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.”

Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets are contributing $500,000 each toward ‘causes and organizations that work to eradicate hate and intolerance.’Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets and the Anti-Defamation League said on Wednesday that the team and its star would contribute $500,000 each toward “causes and organizations that work to eradicate hate and intolerance,” an apparent effort to move past a controversy that has consumed the NBA after Irving tweeted a link to a movie with anti-Semitic themes and appeared to endorse its contents. The latest Irving drama began last week, when he shared a link to the Amazon Prime video page of the 2018 movie, “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.” After the movie’s themes came to light, Nets owner Joe Tsai criticized Irving and condemned the film. Irving denied being anti-Semitic and protested that he had done nothing wrong before deleting the tweet.

Like most people with regular jobs that don’t require wearing skates to work, professional hockey players had no idea how much money their colleagues made—until one morning in 1990 when a newspaper published the salary of everyone in the National Hockey League. It was an extreme case of a topic that captivates economists: pay transparency.
Ice creams of Ben & Jerry's, a Unilever brand, are seen at their shop in London, Britain, October 5, 2020.
