Luke Walton is coming home to rebuild the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers reached an agreement Friday night with the Golden State assistant to become their head coach, dramatically choosing a leader for their new era after Kobe Bryant.
The Lakers grabbed Walton just five days after they fired Byron Scott, who led the 16-time NBA champions to the two worst seasons in franchise history.
Walton spent nine seasons with the Lakers, winning two championship rings as a smart, steady player.
AP Photo/Evan VucciUS Secretary of Defense Ash Carter joined the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, before the Senate Armed Services Committee today to hold forth at great length about the fight against the Islamic State (IS) and all its attendant messiness.
The committee, led by Republican Senator John McCain, asked a slew of questions revolving around the central matter of what's happening at the operational level, how it relates to strategic objectives, where all of this is supposed to be going, and how it's going to get there.
Carter and Dunford said, in very basic terms, that IS was being squeezed and that progress was being made, but that it's not over yet.
Officials revealed on Friday that technical problems causing the drifting of an artificial island to house facilities for the troubled Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge mega project were more serious than what the public had thought.
Of the 22 huge steel cells used to fix seawalls around the island, most had drifted three to five metres while two had shifted by more than six metres and would have to be remedied, the Highways Department said.
The maximum movement of the island was seven metres, as revealed in September.
Director of Highways Peter Lau Ka-keung, however, was confident the HK$117 billion bridge would be finished by the end of 2017.

Reuters/Mike SegarThe Washington Post Thursday night published a widely cited piece by Philip Rucker reporting on the level of resignation among Republican Party insiders to the idea of Donald Trump winning the party’s presidential nomination.
Indeed, with six straight victories in recent primaries, a substantial delegate lead and favorable polling in the key state of Indiana, the New York billionaire’s nomination looks almost assured.
“Republican stalwarts opposed to Trump remain fearful of the damage the unconventional and unruly billionaire might inflict on the party’s down-ballot candidates in November,” Rucker wrote.
ShutterstockHow long you live depends in part on the genes you inherit.
For example, those suffering from Werner’s syndrome have inherited two defective copies of a gene coding for an enzyme that is involved in DNA replication and repair.
A lack of this enzyme produces premature cell senescence – the build up of dysfunctional cells as we age which causes damage to tissue – and elevated levels of inflammatory proteins.
The end result is the early development of many conditions seen in older people, such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, gray hair, wrinkled skin and shrinkage of the thymus.
