Brent Harvey and Joel Selwood clash during the semi-final on Friday.

Exoneration and suspension are both clearly plausible outcomes when the Match Review Panel assesses week two of the finals.

There is somebody quite different wrapped in the Kool-Aid rhetoric.

GoLocalProv | News | Where Do RI Labor Unions Go From Here?

Where do Rhode Island's labor unions go from here, now that the split between Clay Pell and Angel Taveras supporters within the state's labor base ultimately helped elect Gina Raimondo in the Democratic Primary? "The primary was tough for the RI labor movement," said Brooking Institution Vice President Darrell M. West. According to West, labor's divide-and-conquer strategy between Raimondo's two opponents had the unintended consequence of propelling the least labor-friendly candidate in the race to victory.

U.S. groups leery of fast-track trade deals demand transparency

More than 500 U.S. organizations on Wednesday urged the Obama administration to ditch the system of congressional authority to fast-track trade negotiations, demanding a more transparent method of handling trade negotiations.
