4. United seeks to build its own diverse pipeline of pilots -

United Airlines says it will train 5,000 this decade, including taking on applicants with no flying experience, and plans for half of them to be women or people of color.

United will borrow an approach used elsewhere, notably at Germany's Lufthansa, by taking people at the beginning of their flying careers and training them at its own academy, which it bought last year. United will continue to draw pilots from traditional sources such as the military, however.

5. Some businesses want masks on, even as states drop mandates -

NEW YORK (AP) — Although Texas no longer requires people to wear masks to protect against COVID-19, customers do need them to enter De J. Lozada's store.

8. ‘One of the best people I think I’ve ever known’ -

Every new coach – no matter the sport or level of competition – knows all the right things to say when hired to take over a struggling program and energize fan support.

It’s all about, to paraphrase:

9. Saban wants Alabama's focus on Vols after big win -

Nick Saban's postgame dance during Alabama's celebration of a big win was short-lived, then it was back to business.

A video of the second-ranked Crimson Tide coach's dance moves after that 41-24 win over No. 4 Georgia made the Internet rounds. It only lasts a few seconds before a grinning Saban stops and proclaims, "Great win."

10. Henry, Titans rally past Texans 42-36 in OT, remain unbeaten -

13. Govts pledge aid as global commerce seizes in face of virus -

Governments and central banks are scrambling to find ways to keep businesses from going bankrupt as the virus outbreak grinds the world economy to a halt.

A day after Wall Street endured its worst daily drop since the crash of 1987, European markets wavered, as did U.S futures markets. There is tremendous volatility, with the extent of economic damage from the pandemic still anyone's guess. Factories are closed, retail stores are closed, travel has ground almost to a halt and billions of people are sheltering at home, going outside only to find essential supplies.

14. Bowden's late free throws clinch Vols' 65-61 win vs. Vandy -

19. Urban legends, myths plague real estate market -

Residential real estate is loaded with myths and misinformation. Well meaning, well heeled, highly educated men and women of brilliance often utter sentences that make responses difficult.

Last week, a successful entrepreneur said, “I’m putting in a new stair rail, not that it needs it, but the code requires it, and the lender won’t lend any money if it does not meet codes.”

20. US stocks notch solid gains as China stabilizes currency -

Stocks closed broadly higher Tuesday as Wall Street regained its footing a day after the market had its biggest decline in a year.

21. US stock market notches best week since late November -

Wall Street turned the page on a painful May in the stock market by notching its best week since late November.

26. Perdue likes Turner’s ‘outside the box’ hire -

31. Paul Allen's passions: Rock n' roll, sports and philanthropy -

SEATTLE (AP) — Personal computers, conservation, pro football, rock n' roll and rocket ships: Paul G. Allen couldn't have asked for a better way to spend, invest and donate the billions he reaped from co-founding Microsoft with childhood friend Bill Gates.

32. Learn new offense? Titans' Blaine Gabbert on 8th in 8 years -

NASHVILLE (AP) — Quarterback Blaine Gabbert quickly stopped the reporter asking him about learning his fourth offense in four years.

"Eighth in eight years," he said.

The Tennessee Titans, who signed Gabbert in March to back up Marcus Mariota , are the fourth team that the quarterback has played for since being drafted by Jacksonville in 2011. But coach Mike Vrabel is his ninth different head coach and has the eighth different scheme that Gabbert has had to learn since he entered the NFL out of Missouri.

33. With new deal, Taylor Lewan is Boss Hogg of Titans' O-line -

NASHVILLE (AP) — Taylor Lewan has waited and planned for the day when the Tennessee Titans would reward him with a new multimillion-dollar contract.

37. Stocks edge higher as a 3-day win streak restores some calm -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks rose for the third day in a row Tuesday, led by banks, retailers and technology companies. The rebound over the last few days follows a harrowing drop of more than 10 percent over the previous two weeks.

38. Five players to watch as Nashville SC takes shape -

We know her as one of Nashville’s broadcast treasures, but she is something altogether different for the 5-year-old boy and his 2-year-old sister watching college football games, their eyes more focused on sidelines reports than gridiron action, in the family living room in Peachtree City, Georgia.

42. Succop's kick in OT gives Titans ugly 12-9 win over Browns -

CLEVELAND (AP) — When all else fails, the Tennessee Titans know they can turn to Ryan Succop.

On Sunday, Mr. Automatic came through again.

"That guy's money," Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota said.

43. How should ‘good people’ react to racist ideology? -

Southern nationalists planning to lead rallies in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville are banking on Republican ideas and protection to spread their views, a burr under the saddle for state lawmakers in the controlling party.

44. Hartnell comes home in search of Stanley Cup -

Scott Hartnell ran into unexpected difficulty back in 2000 on one of his very first road trips with the Nashville Predators.

It happened during “Rookie Night,” a time-honored tradition in which the team’s first-year players pay for the pricey dinners of their teammates and trainers.

45. Tech and industrial companies lead stocks back from losses -

NEW YORK (AP) — North Korea's latest missile launch jolted the U.S. stock market Tuesday, but major indexes pulled back from those early losses and mostly finished higher as the weakening dollar gave technology and industrial companies a boost.

46. US stock indexes inch higher after back-to-back down weeks -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks inched higher Monday, as the Standard & Poor's 500 index steadied following back-to-back losses the last two weeks.

This week may be a calmer one for the stock market, after an uncharacteristically bumpy stretch shook what had been an incredibly smooth ride higher for stocks this year. Few market-moving events are on the calendar this week, and the highlight will likely arrive when central bankers from around the world gather in Wyoming as the weekend approaches.

47. A sports rout on Wall Street -

NEW YORK (AP) — Sporting goods retailers can't shake their losing streak.

Shares of stores that mostly sell sneakers and sporting gear plummeted Friday after Foot Locker and smaller rival Hibbett Sports reported a drop in sales in the latest quarter. Both also offered gloomy outlooks for the rest of the year.

48. A midday rally fades as sporting goods stocks are penalized -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks slumped in the final minutes of trading Friday and ended a rough week with more losses. Bad news from sporting goods retailers weighed on the market.

A day before, stocks had taken their biggest loss in three months. They opened lower after retailers Foot Locker and Hibbett Sports gave dour quarterly reports. The losses eased and stocks briefly turned higher following reports that President Donald Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, left his White House post. Investors felt that makes it a bit more likely the administration can achieve at least some of its pro-business agenda.

49. Retailers stumble but stocks are little changed overall -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock indexes finished Tuesday close to where they started as technology companies and household goods makers rose. But weak reports from sporting goods and auto parts retailers left a lot of smaller companies with steep losses.

50. Titans brass helps ease Dodd’s injury angst -

The NFL can be a cold and cruel business. In such a high-risk business, one injury or a sudden drop in production can put a player’s very livelihood in jeopardy. NFL, in such situations, really can mean “Not For Long.”

51. On the new playing field in retail, Under Armour takes a hit -

BALTIMORE (AP) — Under Armour is cutting almost 2 percent of its work force and it lowered its full-year revenue outlook, overshadowing a strong second-quarter and amplifying the pitfalls now facing companies across the retail sports sector.

52. US stock indexes mixed ahead of busy earnings week -

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks mostly fell on Monday, and broad-market indexes inched modestly backward at the start of a busy week of corporate earnings reports and a meeting of the Federal Reserve. Technology stocks, though, added to their big gains for the year and helped push the Nasdaq composite to another record.

53. Industrials lead US stocks broadly higher -

Industrial companies led U.S. stocks broadly higher, extending the market's modest gains from the day before.

Investors were cheering solid earnings from several companies Friday. Banks and materials stocks were also up sharply. Energy companies also moved higher as the price of crude oil rose.

54. Ellis’ ‘silencer’ shots help Preds make playoff noise -

When it comes to describing Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis’ growth over the years, it’s easy to stop at the beard.

Orange in color, hemp-thick in texture and over five months in the works, Ellis’ man-mane falls from his chin like a hair curtain trying to cover the crest of his jersey.

55. Titans draft about more than physical skills -

It’s easy to look at the Tennessee Titans’ 2017 draft and conclude General Manager Jon Robinson drafted for need.

After all, he took two wide receivers, a tight end and a cornerback among his first four picks. And all of those players will have better-than-average opportunities to earn early playing time.

56. Woolworth on 5th a fitting tribute to city’s sit-ins -

Police didn’t stop me from entering the five-and-dime, site of one of America’s eventual and monumental civil rights victories.

They didn’t drag me out either, as I assume they figured I’m a harmless old man. And, no one spat on me.

57. Free agent frenzy? That’s not Titans GM Robinson's style -

Upon his arrival as the Tennessee Titans’ general manager in January 2016, Jon Robinson made an immediate impact with the trade for DeMarco Murray and his wheeling/dealing approach to the draft.

58. Climer: Strunk has provided long-missing ownership stability -

Since becoming controlling owner of the Titans in March 2015, it has become customary for Amy Adams Strunk to spend a half-hour or so on the sideline visiting with coaches and players prior to games.

59. Now we’ve got God to thank for Durham’s rise and fall? -

State Rep. Kevin Brooks set the tone for Jeremy Durham’s ouster in prayer, of all places.

Quoting from Luke, the Cleveland Republican opened the recent extraordinary session of the General Assembly saying, “Heavenly Father, you’re very clear in your word when you say that every valley will be filled, every mountain and hill brought low and the crooked places made straight and the rough places made smooth.

60. Here’s how Fortune 500 brands use Instagram -

Now with more than a half-billion users, mobile photo-sharing site Instagram has surpassed Twitter in popularity.

In fact, it is the fastest-growing major social media network, according to GlobalWebIndex.

61. US stocks take small losses as energy companies slide -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks took small losses Friday to end a quiet week of trading. Energy companies fell as a rally in oil prices faded and investors continue to sell the safe assets they favored earlier this year. Technology and materials companies made small gains.

62. Stocks march higher, ending their best week so far this year -

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market closed out its best week of the year Friday as big gains by retailers and technology companies pushed major indexes higher.

Stocks faded as Friday wore on, but they still finished higher. The S&P 500 index climbed almost 3.3 percent this week. By just a hair, that was the biggest weekly gain for the index in 2015.

63. Despite rhetoric, Florida game critical for Jones -

Tennessee’s Butch Jones will coach the biggest game of his three-year tenure with the Vols – and probably the biggest of his entire coaching career – at Florida on Saturday.

Like it or not, Jones is carrying the weight of UT’s 10-game losing streak to Florida on his shoulders.

64. Nashville Sounds owner, players marvel at new park -

Ten days before the Nashville Sounds’ scheduled home opener at their palatial new digs, First Tennessee Park in Germantown was still very much a work in progress.

Frank Ward, owner of the Class AAA Pacific League team, was strutting around like a proud father, all but ready to pass out cigars to an expectant media as workmen painted, pounded and pushed to make everything ready in preparation for opening of the 10,000-seat facility.

65. Lady Vols seem to be slipping off national stage -

KNOXVILLE – There is a bronze statue of legendary Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt standing proudly across the street from Thompson-Boling Arena.

Summitt’s arms are crossed and she has a smile on her face. Thousands of Lady Vols fans have walked past the Summitt statue since it was unveiled Nov. 22, 2013.

66. Campbell’s gamble finally pays with scholarship -

KNOXVILLE – Galen Campbell might get to play a minute here or there as the University of Tennessee men’s basketball team pursues its surprising run toward bubble status for the NCAA tournament.

67. Titans should follow Lions’ lead in overhauling roster -

Instead of CBS, Fox or even the NFL Network, the Titans might need to move to the HGTV, where experts take once-proud houses and restore them to their former grandeur.

Now losers of six in a row and 10 of their past 11 – with only a two-point home win against fellow patsy Jacksonville – the Titans are no longer treading the waters of mediocrity, as they had for the previous five years.

68. Retail skirmish blocks Apple Pay at checkout line -

NEW YORK (AP) — Plan on paying in stores with your shiny new iPhone 6? Not so fast.

Retailer resistance to Apple Pay had been expected because Apple hasn't offered incentives to install pricey point-of-sale terminals and train staff on its new mobile payment system. But the decision to not accept Apple Pay by retailers that already have contactless terminals in the checkout line is a "skirmish" rooted in competition.

69. Titans: Rookie Zach Mettenberger will start at QB -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will start rookie Zach Mettenberger at quarterback against the Houston Texans on Sunday, switching away from Jake Locker who has missed three of the past four games with injuries.

70. ‘Swamp Rat’ still thinks Vols had game-winning kick vs. Oklahoma in ’68 Orange Bowl -

KNOXVILLE – University of Tennessee quarterback Dewey “Swamp Rat” Warren stood on the field during a timeout with a few seconds left in the Jan. 1, 1968 Orange Bowl.

Warren was the holder for UT place-kicker Karl Kremser, who lined up for a 43-yard field goal attempt against Oklahoma. The Sooners led, 26-24.

71. Titans' Whisenhunt praises team after opening win -

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — As the final seconds ticked away on the big scoreboards at Arrowhead Stadium, and only a few hundred fans were left in the seats, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt allowed himself to smile.

72. Hard to convince Titans fans the team is in ‘winning business’ -

At long last, Tommy Smith made himself available to the media.

Smith was peppered before Sunday’s overtime loss to Arizona with the usual questions about Mike Munchak’s job security, which he mostly dodged, saying it would be handled in the first week following conclusion of the Titans’ season.

73. No secret Munchak needs to win out -

It’s amazing what can apparently pass for “breaking news” around the NFL these days.

NFL Network took it upon themselves on Sunday to tell us that Mike Munchak is coaching for his job with the Tennessee Titans.

74. Putting the squeeze on unsuspecting sellers -

Real estate transactions are not fair, not even close to equitable. For the most part, sellers are not forced to sell, at least not here, not now, Nashville being the “It City” and all.

75. Quest to provide competition for Manning’s D-1 training center -

For years, the Tennessee Titans and Peyton Manning have duked it out on the gridiron.

Looks like that fight is moving off the field and into the business arena: A battle royale is brewing in Cool Springs for fitness buffs looking for high-end training.

78. Stocks up slightly on strong retail results -

Stocks resembled summer vacationers on Friday, rising not-too-impressively in the morning and then mostly laying around for the rest of the day.

Positive news from retailers was the main reason U.S. indexes posted small gains. Apple helped too by hitting a new high.

79. Chasing the dream, one more time -

For Joey Haynos, a slim chance to keep playing professional football is better than no chance at all.

The tight end is one of a handful of late-comers to the Tennessee Titans, arriving as an injury replacement on Aug. 2, a few days after training camp had already started. The Titans picked up Haynos, a former University of Maryland tight end, after it was learned that undrafted rookie Brandon Barden would miss significant time with a hamstring injury.

80. US stocks edge lower on Europe worries -

It's going to take more than Facebook's initial public offering to push the stock market higher.

U.S. stock indexes were flat-to-down slightly in early afternoon trading Friday. Facebook made its Wall Street debut, fashionably late, after a computer glitch. Facebook shares were supposed to start trading at 11 a.m. Eastern, but started about half an hour late. Nasdaq said it had trouble delivering trade execution data related to the IPO.
