Ryan pledged to “run through the tape” and finish out his term when he announced last month that he would retire from Congress. But with Republicans in revolt on both his right and his left, Mr. Ryan is increasingly facing questions about whether he can manage to stumble across the finish line. Mr. Ryan’s fractious conference has always been a management headache for him. But now moderates and conservatives are engaged in open warfare over one of the toughest issues before Congress — immigration — and the speaker is stuck in the middle, with no clear path forward.

A transformation is truly visible for the first time in Sheffield. At the Site Gallery, on Brown Street in the city's cultural industries quarter, scaffolding and barriers have been taken down to reveal 56 metres of uncluttered red brick, neatly laid on the facade of a new wing. The venue is trebling in size with a £2.7 million expansion, extending its exhibition space, café and events area, as well as opening a better shop and workspaces to let.

LINCOLN — Greg Bell has made a football career of slipping through small spaces. That is how much of his highlight film from high school begins, and it’s why his Arizona Western teammates nicknamed him “The Eel.”But standing against the wall in a Hawks Center hallway surrounded by reporters Tuesday morning, not even the former junior college All-America running back could find daylight.“It’s way different than juco,” Bell said with a smile. “A lot of people, media and stuff like that. There’s no media in juco.” The 6-foot, 200-pound San Diego native is finding himself adjusting to many new things at Nebraska this spring. The cold weather. Playing in a fast-tempo offense. New teammates. Even back spasms — something he said he’d never experienced before — that kept him out of Tuesday’s practice.Expectations are higher for Bell, too. Some of that is beyond his control, like Rivals rating him the No. 1 … [Read more...] about Greg Bell feels sense of urgency to become Nebraska’s starting running back
