CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Ben Simmons is set to turn the 76ers into must-see TV. But he hopes to have another smash hit off the court. NBC has given a script commitment to "Brotherly Love," loosely based on the life of the Aussie-born NBA rookie of the year. Deadline described the pitch like this:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The pace of hiring in the United States quickened in August, and wages grew at their fastest pace in nine years - evidence that employers remain confident despite the Trump administration's ongoing conflicts with its trading partners. The economy added a strong 201,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate stayed at 3.9 percent, near an 18-year low, the government said Friday in its monthly jobs report.
WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. businesses added 163,000 jobs in August, a private survey found, a decent gain that suggests that employers are confident enough to keep hiring. Payroll processor ADP said Thursday that the job gains were the fewest since October. But last month's pace of hiring is still enough to lower the unemployment rate over time.
