As Imran Khan takes office, military looms over plan for 'New Pakistan'
When Pakistan installs Imran Khan as its new prime minister Saturday, the cricket star-turned-populist politician will be wearing an old sherwani, or traditional coat-length garment. As part of his bid to demonstrate frugality and a new path for Pakistan’s leadership, Mr. Khan plans to forego the crisp new sherwani traditionally crafted for the ceremonial swearing-in by one of Islamabad’s go-to tailors to the political elite. The gesture seems to fit a politician who ran on a slogan of “New Pakistan,” and attracted the support of down-on-politics millennials and a besieged middle class by promising an end to the country’s rife corruption, nepotism, and political-party patronage.

Amid 'summer of the gun,' Canada sees US firearms debate creeping north
This might sound like a familiar storyline in the United States. While streets in Canada are much less violent and its debate about guns much less virulent than in the US, many see an American “creep,” both in the prevalence of guns and the polarization around them.

Preparing for Baltimore’s third preseason game – the second for the rest of the NFL – I’m not so sure. And it’s all thanks to Robert Griffin III’s play thus far. Coming off a year away from the NFL, no one really knew what to expect from Griffin III. Add to it a stacked team where every spot on the 53-man roster is going to be vital for the regular season and I figured Griffin didn’t really stand much of a chance with Joe Flacco being the obvious starter and Lamar Jackson being the new rookie and eventual heir anywhere from next year on. On a one-year deal, everything added up for Griffin

Elway’s Kaepernick comments could be problematic for NFL
As the NFL tries to show that the collective shunning of Colin Kaepernick didn’t result from collusion, one of the teams at the heart of the before/after anthem protest attitude toward Kaepernick may have made things a bit more difficult. Broncos G.M. John Elway, who recently opened the door to bringing in a backup quarterback from outside the organization, attempted on Thursday to explain his lingering lack of interest in Kaepernick, a player for whom the Broncos tried to trade in 2016.
