Hawkeyes downed by Bears | Daily Iowan Sports

SPRINGFIELD, MOIowa baseball’s usually sharp pitching was anything but on Saturday as the Missouri State Bears capitalized on a litany of walks to down the Hawkeyes 5-3.

Junior Blake Hickman’s struggles on the mound continued as he went only 3.2 innings, threw 87 pitches, and walked 5 batters, giving up two earned runs in the process. He was also called for a balk.

“I just kind of lost it there. I kept trying to battle,” Hickman said. “Things just got away from me.”

Disney Is Not Moving Forward With Tron 3 | TIME

Back in April, it was announced that Tron: Legacy stars Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund would reprise their roles for the third film, which Joseph Kosinski was set to direct. (According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney also wanted Jared Leto for a role in the film, but nothing had been formally discussed with the actor.) Though the project was never given an official green light, production was in line to begin later this year, reportedly in Vancouver.

The sequel, made 28 years after the kitschy ’80s sci-fi cult classic with Jeff Bridges, grossed $400 million worldwide from a reported $170 million budget.

Election 2016: Martin O'Malley announces 2016 bid, knocks Hillary Clinton over Wall Street ties - CBS News

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley launched his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination Saturday with a rally in Baltimore, heavily focusing on economic inequality and American workers.

"Together, as one nation, we must build an American economy that works again for all of us," O'Malley told a crowd gathered at a Baltimore park. "That means good jobs and wage policies that allow hardworking families to actually get ahead. That means a higher minimum wage, overtime pay for overtime work and respect for the rights of all workers to organize and collectively bargain for better wages."

Bill Clinton as First Gent? He’d break new ground — and maybe a little china.

All presidential elections are, by definition, historic, but some break more new ground than others.

And this next one?

“Uncharted waters,” says Dee Dee Myers, who was press secretary in the Clinton White House.

“Historical moment, cultural moment,” says Chris Lehane, a longtime Clinton campaign operative.

Their adjectives were not about the possibility of the first woman in the Oval Office (though yes, they all think that’s a watershed) but rather about the office on the other side of the building, in the East Wing. The election of a woman president would mean that for the first time, the first lady would be … a man.

Grassley asks SEC to answer for filing hoaxes - MarketWatch

A key senator has asked the Securities and Exchange Commission to explain how fake firms can file false notices on the agency’s electronic filing system that move share prices.

Sen. Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent the SEC a letter asking how fake firms can file false notices on its Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval system, that’s more commonly known as EDGAR.

Grassley was reacting to a hoax that caused shares of Avon Products AVP, +0.15%  , which had opened trading on May 14 at $6.71, to jump by more than $1.

A firm calling itself PTG Capital Partners used EDGAR to file notice it planned to acquire Avon for $18.75 per share. PTG Capital Partners, and the lawyer who signed its filing, do not exist.
