You Can’t Completely Disable Wi-Fi or Bluetooth From iOS 11’s Control Center

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Apple’s new iOS 11 packs a variety of new capabilities and features under the hood.

Far from the field, Red Sox clinch postseason berth

2:23 AM ET It happened in the middle of the night. The Boston Red Sox were airborne, heading from Baltimore to Cincinnati. Maybe they exchanged a few high-fives somewhere over West Virginia. Or maybe they just slept through it. At least they will have something to toast at dinner on their night off Thursday. But the champagne-and-beer celebration, the one in which corks fly across a room and players break out designer ski goggles? That will wait, as it should, for another time and place. The Red Sox reeled in ...

From hosting Harbaugh for a sleepover to becoming Michigan's closer

9:00 AM ET ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan redshirt freshman Quinn Nordin has both the haircut and the attitude to match near-sighted ex-con relief pitcher Ricky Vaughn from the movie “Major League.” He’s got the power, too. So if the fictional California Penal League, where Vaughn honed his craft, is in need of a place-kicker this fall, it would be well served to start its search in Ann Arbor. Nordin broke a school record in his college debut by kicking two field goals of at least 50 yards (one for ...

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. There aren’t many people who could claim to have saved the world and not be accused of gross exaggeration. Stanislav Petrov is one of the few who could. The former Lieutenant Colonel in the Soviet Air Defense Forces died last May, but word of his passing has only reached the broader world in the past few days. That alone testifies to the kind of man Petrov was. A significant percentage of the world’s population owes ...

Theresa May 'driving from front' on Brexit after Boris Johnson row

Theresa May has attempted to reassert her authority after Boris Johnson set out his own vision for Brexit.

MOGADISHU (Reuters) – Long associated with pirates, famine and bombs, Somalia showed a different face to the world this week as it welcomed foreign writers for the first time to its annual book fair. The event took place for the third time in the scarred seaside capital Mogadishu, but until now security was too precarious for overseas authors to take part. Their participation is a sign that things are changing as government troops, backed by African Union peacekeepers, claw back territory from Islamist insurgents in the Horn of Africa country. ...
