World - Turkey`s Dogan banned from state tenders amid dispute with Erdogan

By Ece Toksabay ANKARA (Reuters) - A major Turkish conglomerate has been suspended from state tenders, the government said on Wednesday, days after President Tayyip Erdogan accused its head of being a `coup lover` and described columnists for its media arm as charlatans. Columnists in Dogan`s flagship newspaper Hurriyet have been critical of Erdogan`s ambitions to create a more powerful presidency after June 7 polls he hopes will produce a big enough majority for the AK Party he co-founded to change the constitution. Erdogan appears to have taken umbrage when, after former Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi was sentenced to death, Dogan`s flagship newspaper Hurriyet ran a headline reading: `elected with 52 percent of the votes and handed a death sentence”.

Sports - Magic hope Skiles as coach will end playoff drought

Scott Skiles was named coach of the Orlando Magic on Friday, the 13-season NBA coach tasked with ending the club`s three-year run of failing to reach the playoffs. Skiles, whose first season as a coach was for Greek side Thessaloniki in 1996-97, takes the job from which Jacque Vaughn was fired last February, one taken on an interim basis by James Borrego. The Magic went 25-57 this past season, only a slight improvement on 23-59 the season before and 20-62 in 2012-13, but not nearly enough to satisfy fans of a team that reached the NBA Finals in 2009, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers, and 1995, losing to Houston.

World - Erdogan`s war on critical media heats up ahead of Turkish election

By Ayla Jean Yackley and Nick Tattersall ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A veteran U.S. journalist and author said on Wednesday President Tayyip Erdogan had blocked his honorary citizenship and declared him an enemy of the state, as the Turkish leader`s war on critical media intensifies ahead of a June election. In what opponents see as part of a campaign to muzzle dissent, Erdogan has berated news outlets including the New York Times and Turkish daily Hurriyet in recent days, while a prosecutor this month sought to shut two TV stations, seen as opposed to the government, on terrorism-related charges. Erdogan is constitutionally barred from party politics as head of state, but has been making podium speeches across Turkey ahead of the June 7 polls in the hope the ruling AK Party will win a big enough majority to hand him greater powers.

Sports - Another historic homer for A-Rod

Drug-tainted New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez belted another milestone home run on Wednesday, becoming the American League`s all-time leader in runs batted in. Rodriguez`s three-run shot off Chris Young helped the Yankees to a 4-2 victory over Kansas City and took his career RBI total to 1,995 -- two more than Yankees legend Lou Gehrig and alone in third place on Major League Baseball`s all-time list. Rodriguez had already moved past Babe Ruth, who is credited with 1,992 career runs-batted-in, a tally that is somewhat short since the stat wasn`t officially kept until 1920 -- six years after Ruth started playing.

World - Indian hospitals overwhelmed as heatwave deaths near 1,500

Hospitals in India battled Thursday to treat victims of a blistering heatwave that has claimed nearly 1,500 lives in just over a week -- the highest number recorded in two decades. Hundreds of mainly poor people die at the height of summer every year in India, but this year`s figures are already the highest since 1995, when official data shows 1,677 people succumbed to the heat. In southern Andhra Pradesh, by far the worst-hit state where top temperatures have reached 47 degrees Celsius (117 degrees Fahrenheit) and 1,020 people have died since May 18, doctors said they had never seen so many severe cases.
