REAKING: Bernie Sanders announces run for US presidency in 2020

Bernie Sanders, the US independent senator from Vermont whose 2016 presidential campaign helped energize the progressive movement and reshaped the Democratic party, has entered the 2020 race for the White House.


In an email to supporters on Tuesday morning, Sanders, a self-styled Democratic socialist who spent much of his nearly 30-year congressional career as an outsider on the political fringe, cast his candidacy as a way to accomplish the mission he started three years ago when he ran against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

“Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution,” he said. “Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for.”

Sanders, 77, running as a Democrat again, believes he can prevail in a crowded and diverse field that includes several female and minority candidates, then beat Donald Trump, whom he called in the email “the most dangerous president in modern American history”.

Chyna Is Being Inducted Into WWE Hall of Fame 2 Years After Her Death

Legendary WWE female wrestler Chyna is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next month as a founding member of D-Generation X (DX). 

While fans are thrilled the late wrestler is getting recognized, several are not happy that she is being inducted as part of a six-person faction, rather than a “singles competitor.”

The announcement came from ESPN’s Tim Fiorvanti, who revealed that Chyna would be joined by Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac in the DX group. The group was originally formed in ’97 as a trio featuring Triple H, Michaels and Chyna. They “collectively helped bring crotch chops and ‘suck it’ into the pop culture mainstream during the peak of its powers,” according to ESPN.

“I think it’s the most meaningful for us all to go in together and to be recognized together,” Paul “Triple H” Levesque told the outlet. “It’d be tough to pick a female that was more impactful on the business. She did something that was completely so out of left field that it wasn’t even being considered when we first brought it up for her to come in. It wasn’t even a consideration … it wasn’t an easy thing, and against all odds she did all of that. She earned everybody’s trust. She won over the fans. She won over the boys. She did all of it,” he added of Chyna.

EPL: Liverpool Regain Top Spot After Defeating Bournemouth At Home

Liverpool stormed back to the top of the Premier League with a dominant 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.  


Sadio Mane scored for the fourth consecutive top-flight match in the 24th minute, after which point Jurgen Klopp's side kicked into top gear to banish the memory of their lacklustre back-to-back draws against Leicester City and West Ham.
Mane opened the scoring in both of those games as well, but fabulously worked goals from the returning Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah ensured there was no chance of another wobble.
Manchester City will return to the summit on goal difference if they beat Chelsea on Sunday. Such fine margins being at play mean Klopp might have liked to see a few more added to their tally as his team cut Bournemouth apart at will.

Mr Moghalu, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, said in a statement Saturday that the endorsement was important because of Mr Soyinka’s reputation and the “elaborate process” his Citizen Forum went through before reaching their decision.

“Our party – the Young Progressives Party – and I, salute the courage and the good judgment of the Nobel Laureate and icon of democratic struggle in Nigeria,” Mr Moghalu said in the statement.

Mr Soyinka, a professor, had announced on Friday the decision of his Citizen Forum to throw their weight behind Mr Moghalu, describing the YPP candidate as the most qualified among the presidential candidates.
