Wall, Beal lead Wiz past Raptors 125-94 in Game 4 for sweep (Yahoo Sports)

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 26: Paul Pierce #34 of the Washington Wizards celebrates a play with John Wall #2 of the Washington Wizards in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2015 NBA Playoffs on April 26, 2015 at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

John Wall twirled a red towel overhead, Paul Pierce motioned to the fans to make more noise, and the sellout crowd of 20,356 chanted ”Sweep! Sweep! Sweep!” The mood was so festive Sunday night that even sometimes-humorless Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman cracked wise when a reporter referred to taking a seven-game series 4-0 for the first time in franchise history. ”Do I get anything for that?” Well, Randy, just another trip to the second round, something Washington’s woebegone NBA club hadn’t done in consecutive years since 1978 and 1979, when it was known as the Bullets. The Wizards emphatically finished off the Toronto Raptors in four games by winning 125-94 Sunday night to quickly close the first-round Eastern Conference series, getting 21 points and 11 rebounds from Marcin Gortat, and 14 points and 10 assists from Wall. Six Wizards scored in double figures, including Bradley Beal with 23 points and Pierce with 14, and that duo made seven of the Wizards’ team playoff-record 15 3-pointers.

Brad Pitt Sports A Nasty Cut On His Beautiful Face And You Won’t Believe How He Got It!

Aw! We love how committed Brad Pitt is to the causes he holds near and dear to his heart!

Especially after suffering from a nasty fall the night before!

On Saturday night, the father of many — six, to be exact — showed up to an autism charity event in Hollywood with a nasty red cut on his face!

[ Related: Is Angelina Jolie Going By Angelina Jolie Pitt Now?? ]

Apparently the 51-year-old got the gash from running up the stairs in the dark!

Brad told DailyMail.com on Sunday:

“This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops. Turns out if you then try to stop your forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash.

Regardless, I wasn’t going to miss the Autism Speaks benefit the night after – wonderful people and I was honored to be a part of this important event.”

Commitment! We love it — we imagine that’s why Angelina Jolie loves him too!

LOLz!

Hopefully that cut heals up nicely so we can all enjoy Brad’s lovely and flaw-free face once again!

Nikki Bella vs. Naomi: Winner and Reaction from WWE Extreme Rules 2015

Nikki Bella has been the queen bee of the Divas division for the past five months, and she proved why Sunday night at Extreme Rules by retaining the Divas Championship against Naomi, landing the win via the Rack Attack.

Since winning the title from AJ Lee at Survivor Series, Nikki has preached her own vision of what a Diva should be. Her twin sister, Brie, has been right by her side, and it is fair to say that they haven’t made many friends along the way.

A new force has emerged in recent weeks, however, in the form of Naomi. The former Funkadactyl has long been known as a happy-go-lucky babyface who dances her way down the aisle, but she underwent a transformation a few weeks ago. She had a new look for Sunday night’s match, per the WWE Diva’s account:

WWE announcer Jim Ross approved of her new look: 

Despite beating Nikki on multiple occasions, Naomi was forced to take part in a Battle Royal for the No. 1 contendership. After Paige eliminated her, Naomi snapped and attacked the self-professed Anti-Diva.

According to WWE Universe on Twitter, Naomi was tired of being taken advantage of due to her friendly disposition:

With Paige out of action, Naomi became Nikki’s new Extreme Rules opponent, which set the stage for what promised to be a competitive matchup.

The Bella Twins have made great strides as in-ring competitors over the past couple of years, and that is a big reason why they have been chosen as the chief representatives of the Divas division.

Naomi traditionally hasn’t gotten as much screen time or notoriety. But she is arguably the most athletic Diva on the entire roster, and she is capable of doing things in the ring that few others can replicate.

Despite Naomi’s new attitude and previous success against her, Nikki entered Extreme Rules bound and determined to maintain her position as the No. 1 Diva in WWE:

Nikki was true to her word as she vanquished Naomi and extended what is now the sixth-longest reign in the seven-year history of the Divas Championship.

Perhaps most importantly, though, both Nikki and Naomi acquitted themselves well in the ring and showed the WWE higher-ups that Divas are deserving of being featured heavily within the product.

There are plenty of talented women on the main roster and developing in NXT. Nikki and Naomi are near the top of that list, and they proved why at Extreme Rules.

Nikki will remain the Divas champion for now, but with so many hungry challengers waiting in the wings, her reign is anything but safe.

Stanford's heat-recovery system, or SESI, will cut greenhouse gas emissions by 68 percent ...

At Stanford University in California, it’s normally the Nobel-winning researchers who make the news. But with the commissioning of a novel renewable energy system, the campus’s humble heating and cooling system has grabbed some headlines. Using a first-of-its-kind heat recovery system, and drawing a substantial percentage of its electricity from solar, the university is greening up its operations in a move that will see greenhouse gas emissions cut by 68 percent and fossil fuel use cut by 65 percent.
