Eye watch security
By Matt Kawahara Published 4:28 pm PDT, Tuesday, August 28, 2018 Jon Gruden stated after the Raiders’ win over the Packers on Friday night that the team’s backup quarterback play this preseason has been “too inconsistent.” The most pressing issue in the head coach’s eyes? “Ball security, number one,” Gruden said this week. Quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Connor Cook have committed all five of the Raiders’ turnovers in three preseason games. Manuel has lost three fumbles, Cook a fumble and an interception. Manuel recovered a second fumble against Green Bay on a high snap and Cook had a potential second interception overturned by a penalty.

Karen DeYoung and Joby Warrick, The Washington Post Published 12:15 pm PDT, Saturday, July 14, 2018 As President Donald Trump on July 10 began a six-day trip to Europe, to culminate July 16 in a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Putin was having some meetings of his own. In Moscow, he hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a frequent visitor, who said he wanted to talk to the Russian leader "without intermediaries." Hours later, Putin sat down with Ali Akbar Velayati, the foreign policy adviser to Iran's supreme leader. The main subject of the meetings was Syria, also a top item on Trump's agenda. "Of course I'm going to bring that up" with Putin, Trump said Friday during a stop in Britain. "I'm not going in with high expectations," he said, "but we may come out with some surprising things."
