After an eventful first stage of the Tour de France, Mark Cavendish earned his first yellow jersey. “It’s quite emotional. This is the only jersey in cycling I’ve not worn. I’ve had all three points jerseys, the worlds jerseys and the leaders jerseys in the Giro and the Vuelta and now this. I just wanted to win the stage and to wear this jersey is an honor,” Cavendish said.
There were two crashes during the stage, one involving race-favorite Alberto Contador, who finished the stage with superficial injuries.

IMILCHIL, Morocco (AP) — Deep in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, the ancient Berbers live on, defying a harsh environment and loyal to their traditions and way of life in some of the most hard-to-reach parts of the African continent.
Indomitable and proud, they call themselves the Amazigh, which is believed to mean “free people” or “noble men,” and trace their origins as an indigenous people in western North Africa to at least 10,000 B.C.
Each election season, the name Super Tuesday is given to the day that Democrats and Republicans hold the most primaries or caucuses and, in return, the most delegates are up for grabs on either side.
This year, it’s March 1. The first Super Tuesday was in 1984, and in years past it’s been a chance to see how a candidate performs on a more nationwide than regional scale.
MILAN (AP) – Not just individual styles but the entire fashion process was under discussion at Milan Fashion Week this year. Counter to trends in New York and London, Italian industry executives underlined that, beyond a few capsule collections and a handful of runway teasers, there would be no rushing Milan’s designs from the runway into stores.
Six weeks after her arrival at Rikers Island, an argument over who should clean a jailhouse shower sent Candie Hailey to solitary confinement — known as “the bing.”
It was the first time, but it would not be the last.
A month later, records show, she cursed and spit at a guard and resisted when she was put in a hold. Ninety-five days in the bing. She later got 70 days for cursing at an officer, splashing the guard with toilet water and refusing to stop. She was handed 60 days after breaking the light fixture in her cell and using the shards to cut her wrist. Among other infractions: fighting (40 days), disrespect of staff (30 days) and blocking her cell window (15 days).
Of her first 29 months in jail, Hailey served about 27 alone in a 6-by-10-foot cell, with a bed, a toilet and a few books to pass the time. When she did go outside, it was just for one hour in 24. And she had yet to be tried for any crime, let alone convicted.
At least eight times in the course of her more than three-year incarceration, she would be taken to the hospital after suicide attempts in solitary that included trying to swallow hair remover product, pills and the chemicals inside an instant ice pack, banging her head on a wall and trying to electrocute herself by putting a phone cord in her cell’s toilet.
Hailey could not abide solitary confinement. But that was the only place her jailers felt they could put her.
