A day after sitting down with the Clippers, free-agent center JaVale McGee was scheduled to meet Thursday with the Kings, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.[...] the Kings could offer more than the minimum — likely the limit for the salary-cap-strapped Warriors — to bring McGee in for frontcourt depth.Sacramento, which has Willie Cauley-Stein as its starting center, probably would slide McGee into a backup role with fellow big men Kosta Koufos, Georgios Papagiannis and Skal Labissiere.In addition to the Clippers and Kings, McGee reportedly has received interest from the Suns and Heat.When the departures of Andrew Bogut, Festus Ezeli and Marreese Speights left the Warriors with few other prototypical interior defenders last summer, they took a chance on the man who once had thrived in Denver for George Karl’s pace-and-space system.On a team stocked with elite shooters and passers, McGee’s knack for catching lobs added another dimension to the league’s most prolific offense.

- Trump tweets that transgender people can’t serve in military
Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
President Trump set off a bipartisan firestorm Wednesday morning by tweeting that the government will not allow transgender people to serve in the military “in any capacity.”In a series of early morning tweets, Trump wrote, After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.Republicans also expressed disappointment and outrage at Trump for posting policy decisions on social media.Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who also serves as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, called Trump’s statement unclear and promised that the committee would conduct oversight on the issue of transgender people serving in the military.In a White House press briefing later that day, Sarah Huckabee, the White House press secretary, said that the announcement was “something that the Department of Defense and the White House iwll have to work together on as implementation takes place.”Rep. Scott Peters (D-San Diego) filed an amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill to block Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from entering the military service.The amendment states that government funds for defense can’t be used to “implement, enforce, or observe any directive” from the president that “bars or restricts the ability of transgender persons to serve in the Armed Forces.”The order, signed by Truman on July 26, 1948, stated, “It is hereby declared to be the policy of the President that there shall be equality of treatment and opportunity for all persons in the armed services without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.”The RAND Corporation, a nonprofit research group, found that the costs of gender-transition related to health care treatment is “relatively low.”The total cost of medical care for transgender troops would increase health care costs by between $2.4 million and $8.4 million annually, representing a 0.04- to 0.13-percent increase in health care expenditures.Transgender reassignment surgery — which not every trans person chooses to undergo — can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars per person to nearly $100,000, depending on how extensive it ias, according to Courtney D’Allaird, founding coordinator for the Genderal and Sexuality Resource Center at the University of Albany, N.Y.“Weren’t we just last year christening the Harvey Milk vessel in the Navy?” D’Allaird said, referring to the 2016 announcement that a Navy supply vessel is being named after the gay rights pioneer of San Francisco.Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center, a public policy think tank at UC Santa Barbara, said Trump’s announcement would cause discrimination and ultimately harms military readiness.In June 2016, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced that transgender individuals would be able to serve in the U.S. armed forces.In June, Gen. James Mattis, Trump’s defense secretary, delayed Carter’s plan to accept transgender troops and to accommodate transgender service members’ medical needs by six months.In February, Trump rescinded federal protections that were implemented for transgender students, allowing them to use bathrooms that coincided with their gender identity.Trump’s tweeted announcement comes about a year after he pledged in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention to protect the rights LGBTQ people.

- Harvard wants to ban elite social clubs to be more ‘inclusive’
By Dana Schuster - Saturday Jul 22, 2017
Harvard is about to get a lot less exclusive. Earlier this month, a faculty committee recommended that the university ban what it called “pernicious” social clubs — including fraternities, sororities and “final clubs” — stating that they are hotbeds for discrimination and elitism and that their influence on campus life “is impossible to escape.” Under...
- Warriors’ Damian Jones showcasing progress in Summer League
By Connor Letourneau - Sunday Jul 9, 2017
Casey Hill, then the Santa Cruz Warriors’ head coach, smiled each of the three or four times a winded Jones asked to come off the court.Because after weeks harping on the 7-foot, 245-pound rookie to give consistent effort, Hill was finally seeing Jones’ motor match his physical tools.In the Warriors’ 95-93 loss Saturday night to Philadelphia at Summer League, Jones looked more like an NBA contributor than a long-term project.Anchored to the post in his limited NBA minutes last season, he is at ease enough to attempt the shots in games that he works on in practice.Because with free-agent center JaVale McGee’s status still in flux, Golden State could need Jones to play meaningful minutes next season.Jones tore his right pectoral muscle while weight lifting 12 days before going 30th overall to Golden State in the 2016 NBA draft.In his first few D-League assignments, Jones — whose four-year rookie contract is worth up to $5.9 million — labored against players earning $19,500 or $26,000, the D-League’s two annual salary levels.A week removed from Golden State’s second NBA title in three years last month, Jones was back at the team’s practice facility in downtown Oakland.
