Washington’s NFL team drops ‘Redskins’ name after 87 years

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington NFL franchise announced Monday it is dropping the “Redskins” name and Indian head logo, bowing to recent pressure from sponsors and decades of criticism that they are offensive to Native Americans.

A new name must still be selected for one of the oldest and most storied teams in the National Football League, and it’s unclear how soon that will happen. But for now, arguably the most polarizing name in North American professional sports is gone at a time of

in the U.S.

The team said it is “retiring” the name and logo and that owner Dan Snyder and coach Ron Rivera are working closely to develop a new moniker and design. The announcement came on the old letterhead with the Redskins name because the team technically retains it until a new one is approved.

“As a kid who grew up in the (D.C. area), it’ll

Coronavirus spread threatens to overrun school reopening plans

WASHINGTON — As the calls from the White House to fully reopen schools grow louder, evidence continues to pile up to show that scenario is unlikely to happen, at least not on the national scale President Donald Trump desires. That’s not because state and local officials aren’t trying, but because the spread of the virus is beginning to overwhelm even the best-laid plans.

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Michael Hinojosa, for example, had been working on a blueprint to reopen schools in August as part of a long and delicate process. But with the virus now surging across Texas, the outbreak may make the decision for him.

“Initially I thought we would be ready, but I’m starting to have second thoughts,” Hinojosa told MSNBC’s Garret Haake last week. “Our parents have pivoted, more than 50 percent of them are now saying they don’t want to come, and we’re hearing loud

LONDON — Yet another British fast-fashion retailer, Quiz, has launched a probe into one of its factories in Leicester, England, a city that is quickly making a name as the country’s sweatshop capital.

Android finally gets its AirPods Pro moment

For years, Apple owners have had one major advantage in their pocket, or sticking out of their ears: AirPods. The small, smart, expensive earphones have been one of the best things about using the iPhone, or any other Apple device, offering a combination of ease-of-use and quality-of-sound that was so strong it also worked as an argument for being part of the company’s ecosystem.

But, finally, Google has properly responded. The Pixel Buds 2, which are now available in the UK, pack in all of those features and more. Just like Apple’s much-loved AirPods, they are clever, sound fantastic despite their tiny size, and represent not just a way to listen to audio but a whole new way of engaging with your phone, too. Just like Apple’s, they’re also very expensive.

It’s a shame that the two different earphones aren’t really in competition: they are each much better when used

July is BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) Mental Health Month, also referred to as Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. In an effort to bring awareness to struggles that people of color face regarding mental health in the U.S., Yahoo Life is republishing this story. It was originally published on April 30, 2020 at 2:06 p.m. ET.

Experts say that many Latinx communities across the United States are in the midst of a mental health crisis during the coronavirus pandemic because of economic and public health disparities as well as cultural stigma around mental health issues.

Margarita Alegria, a professor at the Harvard Medical School and chief of the Disparities Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, says the combination of stress over employment, lack of insurance and lack of information has created a perfect storm for Latinx communities. 

“These disparities have been amplified
