Chelsea and Liverpool suffer shock defeats, Man City and Arsenal win

Chelsea suffered a second defeat in their opening four games of the season as they were beaten by Crystal Palace. Chelsea's poor start to the season continued as they lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace. The Premier League champions had won just one of their opening three games and they struggled to create clear chances in the first half against Alan Pardew's Palace. The Eagles grew in confidence in the second half and took the lead on 65 minutes when summer signing Bakary Sako sent the ball past Thibaut Courtois after seeing his initial shot blocked. Jose Mourinho reacted by making three substitutions shortly after the goal, bringing on Radamel Falcao, Kenedy and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Falcao responded by heading home his first for the club on 79 minutes from a Pedro Rodriguez cross. However, the Eagles responded almost immediately when Joel Ward headed home to make it 2-1 and leave Chelsea with just four points from their opening four games. Cesc Fabregas had a golden chance to equalise in injury time but his shot was blocked as Palace clinched victory over their London rivals. Philippe Coutinho was sent off as Liverpool lost for the first time this season. Liverpool endured a miserable afternoon as they slumped to a 3-0 home defeat to West Ham United and saw Philippe Coutinho sent off. Liverpool had yet to concede a goal this season, but Manuel Lanzini turned home a mis-hit Aaron Cresswell cross-shot after three minutes to give West Ham the lead. Mark...  

Kickass fighter Ronda Rousey becomes the athletic new face of Carl's Jr.

Ronda Rousey crushed any traces of doubt about her dominance in the mixed martial arts world when she beat challenger Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds to protect her undefeated record. The Monday after, still hot on the heels of the much-watched bout, it was announced that she would be the face of a fast food joint best known for ads featuring scantily clad supermodels and decadently unhealthy burgers. But in the ad, Rousey isn't being overtly sexualized — very different for Carl's Jr., which has developed a reputation for controversial ads that emphasize women's bodies more than, say, their athletic achievements. See also: How Ronda Rousey became the superstar you're seeing everywhere For Carl's Jr. — and its southern and midwestern twin Hardee's — the move marked somewhat of a departure. The brand has become notorious for unapologetically using sex appeal to sell burgers. Over the past decade, it has hired a string of models and actresses like Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Heidi Klum to messily eat fatty burgers in skimpy clothing on racy commercials. But a powerful athlete at the top of her game is a first for the company — at least in recent memory, said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer for parent company CKE Restaurants. "We think Ronda's beautiful and she's hugely popular and just getting more popular all the time so she's absolutely a good fit for us," Haley said. The chain has caught a lot of flak for objectifying women in suggestive ...

Philipp Hosiner and Anthony Modeste lead FC Koln to a 2-1 win over Hamburger SV at the RheinEnergieStadion.By Callum Mulvihill, ReporterFiled: Saturday, August 29, 2015 at 16:28 UKLast Updated: Saturday, August 29, 2015 at 17:28 UKFC Koln have continued their unbeaten start to the season by coming from behind to beat Hamburger SV 2-1 at the RheinEnergieStadion.In a first half with very few opportunities on offer, there was very little to separate the two sides but Timo Horn did come to the rescue for the hosts to get a strong hand to Ivo Ilicevic's free kick.© Getty ImagesAn uneventful opening 45 minutes was quickly forgotten when Hamburg broke the deadlock two minutes after the break through Lewis Holtby, who showed his composure with a fine finish after linking up with Sven Schipplock.The lead should have been doubled when Ilicevic was gifted space to turn in the box, but Horn made a crucial save to keep the low effort out.Hamburg were almost made to regret the miss a few moments later when Anthony Modeste took advantage of poor defending to unleash a powerful strike which crashed against the crossbar.It was a sign of what was to come from Koln, who were back on level terms with 14 minutes of normal time remaining when Philipp Hosiner climbed highest to head home Jonas Hector's cross on his Bundesliga debut.The momentum was with the hosts after the equaliser and they were handed the opportunity to take the lead when Emir Spahic was shown a straight red card for choppin...  

Arsene Wenger: Newcastle tried to stop Arsenal playing

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop breaks down Arsenal's 1-0 win over Newcastle, with referee Andre Marriner proving the antagonist of the encounter. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said Newcastle "tried to stop us from playing" after his side edged to a 1-0 victory at St James' Park. Newcastle saw Aleksandar Mitrovic sent off just 16 minutes into the game while the home side also saw Fabricio Coloccini, Chancel Mbemba, Georginio Wijnaldum, Moussa Sissoko, Vurnon Anita and Florian Thauvin booked. Wenger said Arsenal, who won the game when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's shot was deflected home by Coloccini early in the second half, had struggled with the physical approach adopted by Steve McClaren's men. GameCast Lineups and Stats "I must say that Newcastle decided from the start to make the game quite physical and we had to keep our nerves and not become a little bit aggressive as well," he told the postmatch news conference. "I thought we did that well. Afterwards it was a strange game. You play away from home, 11 against 10, and you know that they will play 15 yards deeper. You play 10 against nine in the final third. "The crowd is behind their team which puts pressure on the referee, and then it's very difficult. We didn't find the space. They defended well and they've shown why they didn't concede at Manchester United as well. We are happy to have the three points and to win 1-0." Asked if referee Andre Marriner had given Arsenal enough prote...  

Cheneys liken Iran nuclear deal to Munich pact

US National Archives WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, are likening President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran to the Munich agreement that paved the way for World War II, saying it makes war "more, not less, likely." And for members of Congress, who face a vote on the agreement next month, the choice before them is whether to facilitate "Tehran's deadly objectives with potentially catastrophic consequences for the United States and our allies.""The Obama agreement will lead to a nuclear-armed Iran, a nuclear-arms race in the Middle East and, more than likely, the first use of a nuclear weapon since Hiroshima and Nagasaki," the two wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Friday night."The president has tried to sell this bad deal by claiming that there is no alternative, save war. In fact, this agreement makes war more, not less, likely," they wrote. "In addition to accelerating the spread of nuclear weapons across the Middle East, it will provide the Iranians with hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief, which even the Obama administration admits likely will be used to fund terror."The Cheneys criticize what they see as inadequate verifications for inspections of Iran's nuclear sites, the removal of restrictions on Iran's ballistic missile program and the lifting of sanctions against the regime, which they believe will help Iran fund terror."It is possible to prevent Iran from attaining a nuclear weapo...  

Just breathe! Investment basics in stormy markets

The bull & the unbearable Life and Wealth Planning Partner & Financial Advisor Douglas Boneparth and Lassus Wherle Co-Founder & President Diahann Lassus discuss why it might be a good time to step back and focus on the basics of financial planning. Even the best money managers and analysts can't predict the markets with certainty, making it less likely that average investors can do the same. For that reason, financial advisors recommend taking a step back during times of financial gyrations to focus on the basics of financial planning, the better to protect your investment and retirement portfolios. Read MoreWhen to look beyond your workplace retirement plan Doug Boneparth, a partner and financial advisor at Life and Well Planning says making emotionally charged financial decisions—especially in the middle of a whipsaw market—is a surefire way to make a big financial misstep. "You need to stick your financial plan, if you have one," says Boneparth in an interview with CNBC. "Your financial plan serves as your financial roadmap and anchor. This helps you see the big picture, not market movements and headlines." This week's wild swings on Wall Street was just the latest in a market that has become notoriously...
