FILE - This Sept. 29, 2008 file photo shows then-Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James at the team's media day in Independence, Ohio. A person familiar with the deals says the Cavaliers have agreed to trade guard Jarrett Jack, swingman Sergey Karasev and center Tyler Zeller, moves that can help their pursuit of LeBron James by clearing salary cap space. The Cavs have agreements with the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics, according to the person who spoke Wednesday, July 9, 2014, to The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because teams are not permitted to discuss any trades until the league's moratorium ends Thursday. (AP Photo/Mark Duncan, File)CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James is going back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A Royal Mail postal van is parked outside homes in Maybury near Woking in southern EnglandBy William James LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's biggest privatisation in years was blighted by a fear of failure and poor advice from state-appointed banks, a committee of lawmakers said on Friday following an inquiry into the 2 billion pound ($3.4 billion) sale of Royal Mail. Britain sold a 60 percent stake in the postal service at 330 pence per share last October after a politically charged debate which pitted the coalition government against Royal Mail's heavily unionised workforce and the opposition Labour party. The stock quickly rose by as much as 87 percent, prompting criticism that the price had been set too low and the government had botched the deal. "We believe that fear of failure and poor quality advice led to a significant underestimate of the demand for Royal Mail shares," said Adrian Bailey, the Labour chairman of the cross-party parliamentary committee which scrutinised the deal.

The Sunni militant blitz led by the Islamic State extremist group has effectively cleaved the country along ethnic and sectarian lines — the swath of militant-held Sunni areas, the Shiite-majority south and center ruled by the Shiite-led government in Baghdad and the Kurdish north. (AP Photo)BAGHDAD (AP) — Kurdish security forces took over two major oil fields outside the disputed northern city of Kirkuk before dawn Friday and said they would use some of the production for domestic purposes, escalating a dispute the central government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
