Manchester attack: Terror threat reduced from critical

The UK terrorism threat level has been reduced from critical to severe, Prime Minister Theresa May has said. The change indicates an attack is highly likely, not imminently expected.

NASA has just published the first data from Juno, and it reveals some fascinating things about Jupiter. For one, it has cyclones the size of a planet.

America's safety net is at risk from Trump's budget ax

How Trump budget cuts affect Meals on Wheels President Trump’s budget ax is likely to hit an array of federal safety net programs. Set to be unveiled Tuesday, the Trump administration’s budget is expected to cut spending on Medicaid and food stamps. Details are still forthcoming, but Republicans have long sought to downsize these programs, saying they are rife with fraud and stop low-income Americans from being self-sufficient. Trump officials revealed an outline of their budget plan — known as a “skinny” budget — in March. That outline showed multiple ...

Celtics' rally culminates with shooter's roll from Bradley

4:55 AM ET CLEVELAND — There’s something about the city of Cleveland that seems to bring out the best in Avery Bradley. Maybe it’s the challenge of defending Kyrie Irving. Maybe it’s the opportunity for Bradley and the Boston Celtics to measure themselves against the class of the East. Whatever the reason, Bradley has saved some of his top recent performances for visits to Northeast Ohio. So maybe it should come as no surprise that, in the new biggest moment of the Celtics’ season, coach Brad Stevens scribbled up a ...

2:10 AM ET BOSTON — After Celtics coach Brad Stevens finished detailing the hip injury that leaves Isaiah Thomas questionable moving forward and after he tried to explain how his team had just endured the most lopsided loss by a No. 1 seed in NBA history, Stevens was asked where the Celtics go from here. “Cleveland, tomorrow,” he responded. “You know what, you go and you compete on Sunday.

This Week in Space: From Paranal to Proxima B

We won’t know if Proxima b is habitable until we can get some sharp telescopes pointed straight at it, which doesn’t happen until next year. But until then, everyone’s an armchair astronomer, speculating about the little red dot. What if it’s habitable? It lies within the habitable radius around its star. If it has an atmosphere, it could even support life. A team of scientists based in the UK has been running models to see what they can tease out of the data we currently have on Proxima b, and ...

LeBron's bizarre, rim-rattling struggles from the line

This story appears in ESPN The Magazine’s May 29 Issue. Subscribe today! LeBron James shouldn’t be shooting this free throw. It’s Dec. 31 in Charlotte, with the Cavs up 114-104, and James is walking toward the charity stripe to shoot the technical. Based on pure math, this is a bad call.

There are better options available to the Cavs — like, for example, four-time All-Star Kevin Love, a career ...
