Washington Redskins release former second-round pick Noah Spence

Sports
Nov. 19 (UPI) -- The Washington Redskins released former Tampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Noah Spence, the team announced Tuesday. The Redskins originally signed Spence in mid-September after the Buccaneers cut him at the end of training camp. Washington promoted linebacker Carroll Phillips from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move, according to the team. Tampa Bay selected Spence in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Eastern Kentucky.

Liam Gallagher gets petty after Kaiser Chiefs pick a fight

Liam Gallagher has added a new name to the list of people he has petty feuds with on Twitter, calling Kaiser Chiefs keyboardist Nick "Peanut" Baines "p***flaps". Gallagher had been set for an appearance at Fall In Love Festival in Romania earlier this month but cancelled over safety fears. The former Oasis star tweeted that he was pulling out of his performance because he was told the stage wasn't safe, prompting Kaiser Chiefs to tweet: "If we found out a stage wasn't safe, we'd tell the other bands on there too, right? 'Safety comes first as always' - for everyone. We must've broken it by putting on a rock n roll show 30mins before you."Gallagher responded in his usual combative style, writing: "This 1s for P***FLAP out of the KAISER CHEIFS all that money you spend on props ie your daft l...

Health
Scientists say a new scan technique could identify people at risk of collapsing and dying suddenly from a hidden heart condition.Normally, in people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, signs of structural changes in the heart can only be picked up after death.But University of Oxford researchers used microscopic imaging to spot the same patterns in living patients.The condition is the top cause of sudden cardiac death in young people.It is a common, inherited condition, affecting one in 500 people in the UK, which can be fatal in small numbers of people.Footballer Fabrice Muamba had a near-fatal cardiac arrest during a match while David Frost's son Miles died suddenly while jogging aged 31, for example.Yet many of those with hypert...
