You know, just totally normal, peak 2019 happenings. Though France may be the toughest team the U.S. will face en route to a looming fourth World Cup title, Englands no slouch.

U.S. Womens National Soccer Team Beats England, Advances to World Cup Final

The United States womens national soccer team defeated Englands Lionesses in the World Cup semifinal matchup in Lyon, France, on Tuesday, and will now advance to the World Cup final this Sunday. The U.S. women scored two goals and conceded one goal. The nail-biting game saw England briefly tied with the U.S. about 70 minutes in, until the goal, scored by Ellen White, the anchor of Englands offense, was called as off-sides. The results are a marked improvement for the U.S. since the last time they faced England, when the teams played to a 2-2 draw, but unsurprising for anyone following the American squads dominant performance throughout this World Cup. Megan Rapinoe, the teams purple-maned captain, surprisingly was Christen Press …

New Balance’s Latest Shoes Come With 3D-Printed Soles

If you currently own a pair of running shoes, the odds are that the midsole—the shock-absorbing layer in between the inner and outer soles—is made from molded ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), which is squishy, resilient foam. As a cushioning material, EVA foam isn’t bad. It’s elastic, affordable, and can be dyed a variety of colors. But an EVA midsole offers the same degree of support throughout the shoe, and what you really want is different levels of support across different parts of the foot. Also, EVA breaks down and compresses with repeated use, and this degradation is the reason many runners replace their shoes every few hundred miles. For these reasons, shoe companies have been actively experimenting with materials to …

Why You Still Cant Buy Fireworks on Amazon

It may be known as the “everything store,” but there are some things, in fact, that Amazon does not sell.

Bidens 2020 Rivals Sense Blood in the Water

MIAMI, FloridaThere is blood in the water and the campaigns know it. For weeks, Democrats involved in the primary have privately warned that defensive campaign approach. On Thursday night, in front of the Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the only African-American candidate onstage, and Biden that changed the tenor of the two-hour broadcast and perhaps the course of the primary itself. Harris blistering and personal critique of Bidens position on school-desegregation busing in the 1970s placed the former Veep on the defensive. It also put the biggest dent yet into his greatest political asset: the aura of electability and inevitability that he has tried to build during his time on the trail. In the hours that followed, the other campaigns in …
