Hours before kickoff in the NFC championship game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings, things got chippy as a brawl broke out in the Lincoln Financial Field parking lots. Six policemen, mounted on horses, were called to the scene and at least one fan was bloodied in the melee, which occurred around 3 p.m. Eastern. It appeared that the fight was between officers and fans, NJ.com reported, with no Vikings fans involved. Philadelphia police officers and Pennsylvania state troopers were required to restore order.
The world of agricultural-commodity trading could be upended with the merger of two of its biggest names. Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. has sought deal talks with Bunge Ltd., a person briefed on the matter said at the weekend. That's less than a year after Glencore approached Bunge about a deal. What ADM-Bunge would look like: While they're not exactly household names, ADM and Bunge have been around for 116 years and 200 years respectively and are among the very largest buyers and sellers of grains and other crops.
Over and over and over, first as a candidate and then as president, Donald Trump made a pledge to voters: He would run the White House as like he's run his business. That's a promise that he's kept. At midnight Friday, Jan. 19, the federal government shut down following a week of meandering, fruitless negotiations that foundered in part due to partisan differences on immigration policy and funding for the president's border wall with Mexico. But the truly divisive, convulsive force that upended negotiations meant to keep the government open for business was simply Trump himself.
Private investigators believe a prominent billionaire couple found dead in their Toronto mansion last month were murdered by multiple people two days before their bodies were discovered, Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Saturday, citing a source "with direct knowledge of the parallel probe" into the deaths of Honey and Barry Sherman.
WASHINGTON - The government shutdown headed into its third day after frantic efforts Sunday by a bipartisan group of moderate senators failed to produce a compromise on immigration and spending.

A 9-year-old student in New Mexico gave fellow students gummies - only to realize later they were not ordinary candies. The candies had apparently been laced with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the chemical responsible for how marijuana affects the brain, and were being used by the student's parents as medical marijuana. Kristi Del Curto, dean of elementary students at Albuquerque School of Excellence, told the Albuquerque Journal the fifth-grader brought the box of gummies she found at home and shared with friends at the school cafeteria one morning.
It's Season 4, Episode 11 of HGTV's smash hit, "Fixer Upper," and Joanna Gaines is walking her husband, Chip, through her vision to transform a vacant turn-of-the-century flower shop in Waco, Texas, into a Parisian-inspired cupcake cafe. The camera pans across a dilapidated interior, featuring peeling white paint and chartreuse wainscoting. "But all of this would be, like, subway tile, from the floor up," she says, conjuring a great wall of glossy, 3-by-6-inch ceramics.
Before the sun rose on Saturday over a Washington gripped by gridlock, pink hats and poster-board signs already were emerging around world. The second iteration of the Women's March began in cities such as Rome, where crowds raucously rallied on a clear, sunny morning. "Came for the carbonara, stayed for the resistance," read one of the thousands of signs that protesters carried throughout the day.
WASHINGTON - Congress prepared to return to work Saturday as negotiators pressed for a budget deal to keep a government shutdown that began at midnight short-lived. Agencies shut down for the first time in more than four years late Friday after senators rejected a temporary spending patch and bipartisan efforts to find an alternative fell short as a midnight deadline came and went.
WASHINGTON - The federal government shut down for the first time in more than four years Friday after senators rejected a temporary spending patch and bipartisan efforts to find an alternative fell short as a midnight deadline came and went. Republican and Democratic leaders both said they would continue to talk, raising the possibility of a solution over the weekend. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Friday that the conflict has a "really good chance" of being resolved before government offices open Monday, suggesting that a shutdown's impacts could be limited.
