Venus Williams, Off the Court New York Times
Venus Williams became a professional tennis player in 1994 at age 14. Venus has seven Grand Slam singles events on her victory belt and 14 more in women’s doubles, won with her sister Serena, 34. Venus, with five Wimbledon singles titles wins, became the first African-American woman in 2002 to "earn the world’s top ranking in tennis since the onset of the open era in the late 1960s."
In 2011, her tennis career slowed, as Venus Williams battled injuries and Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that results in joint pain and sometimes crushing fatigue. Under assault from the vagaries of life, Williams withdrew from the second round of the United States Open.
But she has regained momentum. . .

Not a Love Story: Megyn Kelly & FOX
After Ailes, FOX News Has A New Crisis: Can It Keep Megyn Kelly? Vanity Fair
Kelly is the most prized anchor in cable news at the moment. When word circulated around the newsroom that Kelly had spoken with the Murdochs, “everyone got nervous all over again,” according to one staffer, suggesting that she might be preparing to leave. It turns out that Kelly has spoken multiple times with all of the Murdochs, and has spent the most time with Lachlan, who has been in close touch with her throughout the whole Ailes imbroglio, according to a person familiar with the matter. “Lachlan was the one who talked to her throughout this entire ordeal,” this person added. But both brothers are aligned in their desire to keep the broadcaster, this person added. “James loves Megyn. He believes she’s a big part of the future of this channel.”
Besides a ratings hit, FOX News will look like a crumbling empire if Kelly leaves. She is without a doubt the 'it' girl in cable news. The Ailes sexual harassment scandal has given her additional leverage. “If I’m her agent, I’m thinking ka-ching,” writes Vanity Fair. The L.A. Times says that Kelly makes around $10 million a year at Fox News, and is in a strong position to double that when her current contract expires in July 2017. This salary would put her more in line with her in-house rival and nemesis Bill O’Reilly.
The enmity between these two mega-watt personalities is palpable. O’Reilly, whose contract is also up in 2017, sided with Trump throughout his public battle with Kelly. Rupert Murdoch knows and likes O’Reilly. His sons, however, reportedly are not fans. If O’Reilly stays, that may be a reason for Kelly to go.
