EL-ARISH, Egypt - A roadside bomb ripped apart an armored police vehicle travelling in Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula on Tuesday, killing 11 policemen, including an officer, security and medical officials said. The security officials said the bomb appeared to have been detonated by remote control, and it went off as the police vehicle was driving through the village of el-Wefaq near the Egyptian border with the Gaza Strip. A medical official says the explosion also wounded two officers. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.   more...

Autocratic leaders have always sought to preserve a legacy in architecture, from Louis XIV's lavish palace in Versailles to monumental fascist cities. Contemporary authoritarians build with equal flair, whether it's the gravity-defying Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan, or the oval tangle of Beijing's Bird's Nest stadium. These projects are often designed by "starchitects" like Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Sir Norman Foster or Rem Koolhaas. But in lending their names to regimes accused of human rights abuses, starchitects have faced criticism. Shouldn't the designers, observers ask, be taking some ethical responsibility for their creations?   more...

So, Jim Courier: If you were coaching Gaël Monfils, just what would you try to change? "I love Gael," answered Courier, the United States Davis Cup captain and a former world No. 1. "But I wouldn't want to coach him." It is an understandable sentiment. Monfils, one of the game's great and most unpredictable talents, is as endearing as he is maddening; as tough to resist as he is tough to read. For the moment, as the 20th-seeded Monfils prepares to face off with the seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov in what could be - but only could be - a spectacular fourth-round contrast in styles at the United States Open, nobody is coaching him at all.   more...

Chase Headley had one crack it, one chance to do it after nearly eight full seasons in Major League Baseball. It was a week ago, in the top of the seventh inning at Kansas City, and few people even knew this was his moment. But Headley knew. James Shields, an expert pitcher, was on the mound, and the Yankees were leading the Royals, 3-1. There might not be another shot. "The pressure was on," he said. But he was ready, and he came through. It was a single to right field, and the first test on a fertile road trip had been passed.   more...

In late 2012, Arkansas hired Bret Bielema as its football coach, paying him a salary of $3.2 million a year, plus bonuses, making him one of the best-compensated coaches in his industry and his state's highest-paid employee. During Bielema's first season, the Razorbacks won their first three games before losing their last nine, prompting some fans to wonder whether Arkansas had overpaid him. One fan took to Facebook to sarcastically thank the coach for the three wins: "Good job, Bielema, here's $3 million dollars for that." Another posted on Twitter that the coach should share his paycheck with his players who "get paid nothing but bring $ to the university."   more...

ROTHERHAM, England - It started on the bumper cars in the children's arcade of the local shopping mall. Lucy was 12, and a group of teenage boys, handsome and flirtatious, treated her and her friends to free rides and ice cream after school. Over time, older men were introduced to the girls, while the boys faded away. Soon they were getting rides in real cars, and were offered vodka and marijuana. One man in particular, a Pakistani twice her age and the leader of the group, flattered her and bought her drinks and even a mobile phone. Lucy liked him.   more...

HINESVILLE, Ga. - Every year, more than 25,000 Americans undergo surgery to correct a hiatal hernia, a condition in which tissue from the stomach bulges into the chest cavity through a hole in the diaphragm. The hernias often return, but major complications are rare. Hospital stays are usually short. Irene Smith, a 42-year-old cafeteria worker, wife of an Army sergeant and mother of three, was considered a good candidate for the procedure when she was evaluated in late 2007. A cardiologist's report was especially positive. "Lost about 25 pounds, exercising daily, looks fantastic," he wrote. But more than a dozen operations later, Mrs.   more...
