“Wow, that sounds like something ripped straight from the plot of a much less valuable book.”

“Our ties are extremely important, as is coordination over North Korea and our shared alliance with the U.S.,” Mr. Suga told reporters.

With a rash of injuries to fantasy stars like Saquon Barkley and Christian McCaffrey, NFL Week 3 is going to be an unpredictable roller coaster ride. Onion Sports fantasy expert Gary Borkowski is here to lend a helping hand with his top players to start or sit.

Start ’Em

  • Mitchell Trubisky (QB): Look, Mitch is already pretty down on himself, so starting him would really boost his spirits.
  • Alvin Kamara (RB): A tremendously selfish back who will demand a lot of touches in the Saints offense.
  • Sam Darnold (QB): Fantasy is won in the mind, and this move will be sure to baffle and weird out your opponent.
  • Rob Gronkowski (TE): Expect Tom Brady to play favorites and find his old teammate, even at the expense of making new friends.
  • Josh Allen (QB): It says here that h...

Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu had been head of the office that oversees the canonization of saints. At age 72, he would still have been eligible for the next eight years to vote in a conclave to elect a future pope...

India’s border conflict with China is pushing New Delhi to look for an asymmetric response: flexing its naval might as it deepens cooperation with other democracies that seek to counter Beijing’s global ambitions.

India, which operates one of the world’s largest navies, sits astride shipping routes in the Indian Ocean that connect China to its main sources of oil and gas in the Middle East and to its key markets in Europe. Though growing fast, China’s navy still has only limited ability to operate in a region far from its home shores—and has to contend with the U.S. in its own backyard.

Under the new measures, which will last at least through Oct. 10, all private businesses except those considered vital—such as supermarkets and pharmacies—will be closed. Residents will also have to remain within a one-kilometer radius from their homes.

The lockdown imposed last Friday shut down businesses that cater to the public, including gyms and restaurants...
