US basketball player Sonny Weems racially abused by fans in China

In a video circulating on social media, fans can be heard repeatedly shouting the "N" word and "get out of China" at 35-year-old Weems, who plays for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in the Chinese Basketball Association. The incident happened after the Southern Tigers' game against the Liaoning Flying Leopards last Thursday. During the game, a fight broke out between Weems and Chinese player Han Dejun which resulted in both players being ejected. In the video, Weems is seen exiting the team bus along with the rest of…

Next-gen Toyota Sequoia likely teased in shadowy image

It appears Toyota is hard at work on some sort of new SUV. On Tuesday, the automaker tweeted out a mysterious image of a future utility vehicle, a shadowy picture that was also posted on its media site. For now, it's unclear exactly what we're looking at, but it's a good bet this is our first glimpse of a redesigned Sequoia. The current generation of this large, three-row SUV has been around for quite a while, about 15 years, which in automotive terms means it's an absolute dinosaur. Not terribly competitive…

A drone attack in Abu Dhabi could mark a dangerous turning point for the Middle East

A deadly drone attack in the heart of the United Arab Emirates' capital has thrust the Middle East into uncharted waters at a time when the region's leaders have sought to heal years-long rifts. Three people were killed when the strikes hit fuel trucks near the airport in Abu Dhabi on Monday, causing multiple explosions. Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels quickly claimed the attacks. In response, the UAE and Saudi Arabia responded by pummelling the Yemeni capital of Sana'a with airstrikes, killing at least 12…

How will the great wrecker Boris Johnson break himself out of this hole? | Marina Hyde

Dignity-wise, I see the Johnson administration has moved to the stage of a man in a dirty tracksuit saying he’ll do a polygraph. Dominic Cummings’ insistence that the prime minister is lying, and that he’ll swear to it, makes you wonder if Sue Gray is really the person to run the inquiry into Downing Street parties. In many ways Jeremy Kyle has the more relevant experience, though of course it would be the first time the presenter had stood in judgment on people lavished with every possible economic,…

Palihapitiya made the comment on the "All-in Podcast" on Saturday, after co-host Jason Calacanis brought up US President Joe Biden's "very strong" stance on the alleged human rights abuses faced by the Uyghur minority in China. "Nobody cares about what's happening to the Uyghurs, okay? You bring it up because you really care, and I think it's nice that you care, the rest of us don't care," Palihapitiya said, while Calacanis reacted in surprise. "I'm just telling you...a very hard, ugly truth. Of all the…
