WASHINGTON — The presidential campaign was rocked on Friday after federal law enforcement officials said that emails pertinent to the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server were discovered on a computer belonging to Anthony D. Weiner, the estranged husband of a top Clinton aide.
In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said the emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, which law enforcement officials said was an F.B.I. investigation into illicit text messages from Mr. Weiner to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. Mr. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman from New York, is married to Huma Abedin, the top aide.
Mr. Comey's letter said that the F.B.I. would review the emails to determine if they improperly contained classified information, which is tightly controlled by the government. Senior law enforcement officials said that it was unclear if any of the emails were from Mrs. Clinton’s private server. And while Mr. Comey said in his letter that the emails “appear to be pertinent,” the F.B.I. had not yet examined them.
By the end of a day that brought stinging criticism of Mr. Comey from both Democrats and Republicans, he appeared on the defensive, saying in an internal email to bureau employees that he had felt obligated to inform Congress, and “we don’t know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails.’’
The new development in the saga over Mrs. Clinton’s handling of classified information came months after the F.B.I. closed the investigation without charging Mrs. Clinton. The announcement, less than two weeks before the election, left Mrs. Clinton’s team furious and scrambling for explanations while bolstering the spirits of Donald J. Trump after a wave of controversies and Republican defections had led many to write him off.
“We are calling on the F.B.I. to release all the information that it has,” Mrs. Clinton said adamantly in an evening news conference that took issue with Mr. Comey for making the disclosure so close to the election. “Let’s get it out.”
Mr. Trump was ebullient. “Perhaps, finally, justice will be done,” he declared at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.
A senior law enforcement official said that tens of thousands of emails belonging to Ms. Abedin were on Mr. Weiner’s laptop, which the F.B.I. had obtained as part of its investigation into Mr. Weiner. About a month ago, a person familiar with the investigation said, F.B.I. agents seized the laptop as well as Mr. Weiner’s iPad and cellphone.
Mr. Comey said in his letter to Congress that he did not know how long it would take to review the emails. Law enforcement officials said they did not know whether any were duplicates of emails discovered in the earlier investigation.
Mr. Trump has fallen behind Mrs. Clinton in most national polls and in many key states. Polls have been tightening in recent days, however, as Republicans have started returning to their party roots during the final stretch of the race.
An emboldened Mr. Trump seized on the F.B.I. action on Friday at his rally in New Hampshire. To cheers of “lock her up” from his supporters, Mr. Trump said: “Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we have never seen before. We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.”
After deriding the F.B.I. for weeks as inept and corrupt, Mr. Trump went on to praise the law enforcement agency.
“I have great respect for the fact that the F.B.I. and the D.O.J. are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made,” Mr. Trump said, referring also to the Department of Justice. “This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understand. It is everybody’s hope that it is about to be corrected.”
The Clinton campaign called on Mr. Comey to provide information beyond what was put forth in the letter.
“Director Comey’s letter refers to emails that have come to light in an unrelated case, but we have no idea what those emails are and the director himself notes they may not even be significant,” said John D. Podesta, the chairman of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign.
He added: “It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election.”
Asked in an interview on CNN about Ms. Abedin’s involvement, Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, demurred.
“The facts of the matter is stuff that is unknown to us,” Mr. Fallon said.
The “October surprise” confounded leading Democrats who suddenly found themselves on the defensive.
“This is particularly troubling since so many questions are unanswered,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California. “It’s unclear whether these emails have already been reviewed or if Secretary Clinton sent or received them. In fact, we don’t even know if the F.B.I. has these emails in its possession.”
Donna Brazile, the interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, demanded more information from Mr. Comey about his next steps and expressed concern about the agency interfering with the election.
“The F.B.I. has a solemn obligation to remain neutral in political matters — even the faintest appearance of using the agency’s power to influence our election is deeply troubling,” Ms. Brazile said.
For Republicans who have struggled to defend Mr. Trump amid his comments about women and conspiracy theories about a rigged election, the opportunity to revisit a controversy that has dogged Mrs. Clinton was a welcome gift.
The Republican National Committee cheered the new attention on Mrs. Clinton’s emails as a potential turning point in the race.
“The F.B.I.’s decision to reopen their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email server just 11 days before the election shows how serious this discovery must be,” said Reince Priebus, the Republican committee chairman, arguing that the Democratic nominee should be disqualified from seeking the presidency. “This stunning development raises serious questions about what records may not have been turned over and why, and whether they show intent to violate the law.”
Speaker Paul D. Ryan, who has been critical of Mr. Trump, assailed Mrs. Clinton and said that she should no longer be allowed to receive classified briefings.
“Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame,” Mr. Ryan said in an emailed statement. “She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information.”
After defending her email practices for months, Mrs. Clinton sought to put the issue behind her this year, eventually apologizing and acknowledging that using a private server was a mistake. During the presidential debates with Mr. Trump, she tried to avoid the subject and accused Mr. Trump of putting national security at risk by inviting Russian hackers to meddle in the election.
Mrs. Clinton and her staff expressed relief in July when Mr. Comey announced that the F.B.I. had closed the investigation after determining that no one should face criminal charges. But he did criticize Mrs. Clinton and her aides for what he termed the “extremely careless” handling of sensitive information, leaving an opportunity for Republicans to continue hammering her for bad judgment.
The involvement of Ms. Abedin and Mr. Weiner in Mrs. Clinton’s case was an unforeseen twist. Several weeks ago, top Justice Department officials decided that prosecutors in Manhattan would handle Mr. Weiner’s case. After seizing the devices, investigators have been combing them for information.
It remained unclear whether Mr. Comey would reveal more about the contents of the newly discovered emails. In his memo to the F.B.I. staff, it was evident that he is keenly aware of the fraught political backdrop that he faces.
“We don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,” Mr. Comey wrote. “I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.”
Ms. Abedin separated from Mr. Weiner in August after it emerged that he was exchanging lewd messages with a woman on social media. Such behavior had destroyed his congressional career and his 2013 mayoral campaign.
Mr. Trump has pointed to Mrs. Clinton’s association with the couple as an example of her bad judgment.
“I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information,” Mr. Trump said in August. “Who knows what he learned and who he told?”
Correction: October 28, 2016
An earlier version of this article incorrectly reported when the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, announced that the bureau had closed its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use. It was in July, not September.
CHICAGO — When the Cleveland Indians arrived in town, they were viewed as a prop. The city was buzzing on Friday, bars in Wrigleyville were hopping before lunch and ticket prices for the Chicago Cubs’ first World Series home game in 71 years were approaching the cost of a college tuition payment.
But the Cubs, chasing their first championship in 108 years, had to play somebody, and the Indians were content to be that other team.
“I’m surprised they’re not calling us that,” said Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who grew up nearby, attending games at Wrigley Field. “That’s fine by us. We’ll be that other team that won the World Series.”
The Indians are halfway there after a 1-0 victory over the Cubs on Friday night, riding an inspiring pitching performance by Josh Tomlin, a pinch-hit, run-scoring single by Coco Crisp and another lockdown performance from their bullpen.Continue reading the main story
When Cody Allen struck out Javier Baez with runners at second and third to end the game, it gave the Indians a two-games-to-one series lead and left the overflow crowd disappointed knowing that the Cubs must return to Cleveland to win the title.
Of course, the Cubs have bigger problems at the moment. Friday was the fourth consecutive playoff loss in which the Cubs have been shut out, including their two defeats in the World Series. And they will have to contend on Saturday night with the Indians’ ace, Corey Kluber, who pitched six shutout innings in the Series opener and has a 0.74 earned run average in the playoffs.
A taut, tense, low-scoring game hardly seemed in order on Friday night, when the wind was blowing briskly out toward center field and balls were flying out of the park in batting practice.
“Sometimes when you see the wind blowing out, you can try to do a little too much,” Cubs left fielder Ben Zobrist said. “I didn’t think there was one particular guy who was doing that tonight. Sometimes before the game, you lick your chops a little bit more than you should.”
Setting the tone for the Indians was Tomlin, who was pitching in front of his father for the first time since he learned he had arteriovenous malformation, a rare tangling of the blood vessels on his spinal cord that has left him paralyzed since August.
Tomlin allowed only two singles and a walk, but Indians Manager Terry Francona’s itchy trigger finger beckoned the superb Andrew Miller from the bullpen with Jorge Soler at second and two out in the fifth. By the end of the night, Francona had made several double-switches and used a pinch-runner for catcher Roberto Perez after he singled to lead off the seventh against reliever Carl Edwards Jr.
“Tito’s card was a mess,” said the Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway, referring to Francona by his nickname. “There was stuff going on everywhere.”
Three moves in particular proved to be fruitful.
First Francona brought on Miller, who retired pinch-hitter Miguel Montero on a liner to end the fifth, stranding Soler. He then used Michael Martinez to pinch-run for Perez, and Martinez alertly advanced to third when a breaking pitch by Edwards bounced away from Willson Contreras. Finally, Francona replaced Miller — who had struck out the side in the sixth on just 13 pitches — with a pinch-hitter when there were runners at first and third and one out in the seventh.
Miller had not hit since 2011. “I don’t know if you could tell by my smile on deck,” Miller said. “I didn’t have a whole lot of confidence in my ability.”
Asked if he knew his career numbers, Miller said: “Terrible. Pretty awful.”
When told he was 4 for 72, he added: “I know we have a lot better hitters on this team.”
One of them turned out to be Crisp, the 36-year-old veteran who began his career with Cleveland, won a championship with Francona in Boston in 2007, and was reacquired in an August trade with Oakland. He lined the first pitch he saw from Edwards into right field, salving the frustration of leaving a runner at third in three previous innings.
If the night was memorable for Crisp and Tomlin, it also was for those who packed the ballpark. Understandably, the first World Series game at Wrigley Field in 71 years was treated like a once-in-a-lifetime affair.
Fans began congregating in Wrigleyville, the neighborhood centered on the intersection of Clark and Addison Streets, early in the morning. Some bars along Clark were charging $25 to $50 just to get in the front door, and by midafternoon, cars were no longer being allowed within a block of the ballpark. By late afternoon, Clark was so congested with foot traffic that police on horseback formed a tight line at the corner of Addison, keeping fans from flooding the intersection.
Cubs Manager Joe Maddon likened his drive to work, spent weaving around cars and pedestrians, to a video game.
“Thank God there’s not another round after this, I’ll say that,” Maddon said. “I’m ready for the family vacation. But it’s spectacular in all the best. Hyperbole definitely suits right now — whatever you want to throw out there, it really matches up to what’s going on right now.”
As Janet and Jack Adams, season-ticket holders from suburban Mount Prospect, sat in the upper deck watching batting practice, they considered that they were born in 1947, two years after the Cubs lost Game 7 of the World Series to the Detroit Tigers.
“It doesn’t seem real to be sitting here,” Janet Adams said.
The shift to a National League park also had an effect on each team’s lineup. Doctors advised the Cubs that playing Kyle Schwarber, who returned from a major knee surgery in April to be the designated hitter in the first two games in Cleveland, in the outfield would be too risky, so he sat on the bench hoping to affect the game as a pinch-hitter. The Indians used Carlos Santana — usually a designated hitter or first baseman — in left field, a position he had not played since 2012.
Schwarber got his chance in the eighth, but reliever Bryan Shaw busted a 2-1 fastball in on his hands, shattering Schwarber’s bat and resulting in a soft pop up.
The Cubs did get a couple of breaks. Soler lofted a fly ball down the right-field line that outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall misplayed into a two-out triple in the seventh. Shaw recovered to retire Addison Russell on a groundout.
And first baseman Mike Napoli booted Jason Heyward’s two-out grounder in the ninth that would have ended the game without much stress for Allen. But so far this Series, those sorts of hiccups have hardly bothered what throughout the playoffs has been considered the other team.
The Indians ruined the send-off for Boston’s David Ortiz. They silenced brash Toronto. And now they threaten to provide another chapter of disappointment for the Cubs, breaking many hearts along the way.
“I love it.” Kipnis said. “Good. I hope I break all of them. I hope I break every single one of them. I hope I come home at Thanksgiving and the off-season, and I want to have a smile on my face when I look at all these Cubs fans.”

Summer Zervos, a contestant on the fifth season of The Apprentice, came forward on Friday afternoon to accuse Republican nominee Donald Trump of kissing, groping and thrusting his genitals on her during a business meeting. She is the sixth accuser to come forward alleging sexual misconduct by Trump this week alone. At least four other women, including two former beauty pageant queens, one business associate and his ex-wife Ivana, have made accusations in the past.
Zervos, the first contestant fired from her season Trump's reality TV show, said she approached the businessman about a job at his company in 2007, after she appeared on the show. They met first in Trump Tower to discuss the opportunity, where she says he kissed her twice on the mouth and asked for her phone number. Weeks later, she says he arranged to meet with her at a hotel in Los Angeles, where Zervos says he kissed, groped and thrust his genitals on her.
Two weeks ago, the Associated Presspublished a report describing Trump's often lewd conduct on-set at the TV show. Some 20 former employees and contestants testified to the fact that Trump rated female contestants and employees' bodies, compared their bodies to his daughter Ivanka's and openly discussed which women he would like to have sex with. Since the story ran, at least one Apprentice producer has said that more damaging tapes exist but that employees are contractually forbidden from sharing them with the press.
Zervos recounted her experience with Trump at a press conference held by her lawyer, Gloria Allred, in Los Angeles. This isn't the first time Allred has tangled with Trump. In 2012, she represented transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova in a suit against the Miss Universe Organization, which threatened to bar Talackova from competing because of her birth gender. During their legal stand-off, Trump told TMZ that Allred would be "very, very impressed" if she saw a picture of his genitals. "I think she'd have a whole brand new image of Donald Trump," he added.
Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon told campaign staffers earlier this week that the campaign beat back the accusations against Trump by focusing on Bill Clinton's scandals. "We're going to turn him into Bill Cosby," Bannon reportedly said of Clinton. Instead, as woman after woman appears with their own unique and similar story, it's Trump whose wave of allegations more resem
bles Cosby's. The fact that Allred is now involved only bolsters that impression: She also represents about half of the more than 50 women who have accused Cosby of assault.
As Zervos and Allred held their press conference in Los Angeles, Trump was in a rally in North Carolina, where he mocked his female accusers, motioning with his hands in the air to imitate their accusations.
He may have to add more impressions to repertoire; as Allred indicated on Friday, more accusers may still be waiting to share their stories. "Many more women have contacted me," Allred said on Friday. "Will they be coming forward? I can't answer that question at this time."

Are you hooked on this Housewife? ABC’s newest sitcom premiered Wednesday night, and we want to know what you think.
The show stars Mike and Molly alum Katy Mixon as Katie Otto, a mom-of-three balancing her children, the judgy moms of her wealthy Connecticut town, and her weight. Despite her struggles, she’s confident, unapologetic, and has a loving husband to boot. The modernized American family premise should feel right at home for viewers as American Housewife leads in to Modern Family.
So will you tune in to watch the Otto family’s antics? Or is one Wednesday night family enough? Take our poll and let us know in the comments.
MIAMI — The guest of honor strolled across the stage — hair slicked back and grayed, no tie — embracing his host, briefly, before looking out on the campaign crowd.
It had been a while. He opened with something safe.
“I understand you’ve got a pretty good women’s volleyball team here,” he said, a bit tepidly, inside a college gymnasium on Tuesday. “So go, Lady Sharks. Is that what you say?”
Al Gore was back.
In a rare return to presidential politics, Mr. Gore, who was Bill Clinton’s vice president, joined Hillary Clinton for a 45-minute Democratic call to arms, vacillating between a familiar drawling delivery and the urgency of a seer sent from another era to warn future generations of prospective doom.
“Your vote really, really, really counts,” he said, in the state synonymous with his excruciating 2000 election loss. “You can consider me as an Exhibit A.”
It was a remarkable turn in one of the most consequential, and fraught, relationships in recent Democratic political history — a halting public embrace between two figures long defined by rivalry, ambition and a complicated union with the same man.
The event’s ostensible focus was climate change, Mr. Gore’s signature issue. But the wider message of the gathering, 16 years after the recount fight that begot the presidency of George W. Bush, was unsubtle: As Mrs. Clinton seeks to encourage registration efforts and convince Americans that every ballot counts, Mr. Gore is the Democrats’ ambulatory cautionary tale.
“Now, for those of you who are younger than 25, you might not remember the election of 2000 and what happened here in Florida,” he said, addressing students from Miami-Dade College, among others in attendance. “For those of you older than 25, I heard you murmuring just now.”
Soon, a chant rang out: “You won!”
Introducing Mr. Gore, Mrs. Clinton spoke of clean energy, curbside gardens, the Paris climate agreement and Donald J. Trump’s suggestion that climate change is a hoax.
She commended Mr. Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize and his documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” presenting him as “our former vice president, the climate change leader and all-around great guy Al Gore.”
“There isn’t anybody who knows more, has done more, has worked harder,” she said. “I can’t wait to have Al Gore advising me when I am the president.”
He stepped to the microphone, hugging Mrs. Clinton as she smiled.
There was a time when these two shared the stage often as crowds waved signs with both of their surnames.
After Bill Clinton’s 1992 election, Mr. Gore and Mrs. Clinton quickly established themselves as rivals for Mr. Clinton’s ear — a pair of policy wonks seeking influence in a new administration.
It was their similarities, at least in part, that seemed to compel Mr. Clinton to choose Mr. Gore in the first place. “He reminds me of Hillary,” Mr. Clinton told a former top aide, Paul Begala, according to Mr. Begala. “When he gets hold of something, he never lets loose.”
Together with the vice president and his former wife, Tipper, the Clintonsshared dinners and concerts, White House bowling outings and nights at Camp David.
Mr. Gore’s plans to succeed Mr. Clinton suffered, in part, from the president’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and the firestorm that followed. Tensions persisted as Mr. Gore sought to distance himself from his boss on the campaign trail, effectively sidelining Mr. Clinton as a surrogate, wounding the departing president.
“I understand the disappointment and anger that you feel toward President Clinton,” Mr. Gore told voters at a televised forum then, “and I’ve felt it myself.”
At the same time, Mrs. Clinton had set off to run for the United States Senate, competing for party resources and attention just as Mr. Gore was straining to step out of the Clintons’ long shadow.
She won. He lost.
In the years since, Mr. Gore declined to endorse Mrs. Clinton in the Democratic primary campaign during either of her presidential runs. He announced his support for her this year in late July, over Twitter. He did not attend the Democratic convention.
The rally on Tuesday dwelled little on this past, or the details of Mr. Gore’s defeat.
Hanging chads were not broached. Butterfly ballots were not invoked. Yet other Gore-era echoes have resounded through this heady campaign season.
Young voters, wary of the Democratic nominee, have weighed third-party options, delivering fresh nightmares of Ralph Nader’s 2000 campaign to bleary-eyed Democratic operatives.
The grim history of Mr. Clinton’s behavior with women has reassumed center stage, with Mr. Trump raising his infidelities as a campaign issue. (At least twice during Mrs. Clinton’s remarks on Tuesday, protesters ridiculed Mr. Clinton’s past. Mr. Gore stared straight ahead, his hands clasped.)
There is even a legal skirmish over voting regulations here, with Democratic officials successfully extending a registration deadline, against the wishes of the state’s Republican governor, because of a recent hurricane.
The speakers on Tuesday focused most intensely on this extreme weather and its consequences.
Mrs. Clinton cited the devastation in Florida and Haiti from Hurricane Matthew — “If you need additional convincing, just remember what happened this week,” she warned — and reminded voters of the protracted drought in California.
Mr. Gore, too, held forth on the cause of his postpolitical life, making his case as if reading from a slide show projection. He quoted Thomas Edison, warned of rising sea levels and lurched into a discussion of comparativesolar energy commitments.
“Massachusetts installed more solar energy last year alone than Florida has installed in its entire history!” he said.
“Ridiculous!” someone yelled back.
“Yes, it’s ridiculous!” Mr. Gore said. “That’s exactly right.”
By then, some students had buried their heads in their phones.
But the former vice president ended with a flourish.
“Please take it from me,” he said. “Every. Single. Vote. Counts.”
“We love you, President Gore!” a woman shouted from the bleachers.
Moments later, Mr. Gore wrapped up, turning toward Mrs. Clinton for a brief negotiation as the room cheered.
“Wanna do a hands-up?” he asked, cupping her right hand in his left.
“Yeah!” Mrs. Clinton said.
One more time, their arms shot skyward.

Miley Cyrus is — and should be — proud of who she is. However, when she came out as ‘pansexual,’ many weren’t completely clear on what that meant. So, we broke down everything to know about the term that commonly gets mistaken as bisexual, but is actually very different.
“My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality. I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl,” Miley Cyrus told Variety, before revealing that she never loved being a girl or a boy. So, she though the LGBTQ alphabet should add a P for “pansexual.”
So what is “pansexual?” Well the dictionary defines it as “not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.” The word itself is derived from the Greek prefix pan, which means “all.” It also refers to romantic interests, CNN reports, adding that someone who identifies as pansexual can be attracted to multiple gender identities. Authors Patricia Johnsonand Mark Michaels also told CNN that it is different from bisexual. “People are adopting it because ‘bisexual’ partakes of the gender binary. Pansexuality is a way of moving beyond that and a personal recognition that attractions are felt across the gender spectrum.”

Miley told the magazine when she found out what pansexual meant, she began identifying as it.
“I went to the LGBTQ center here in L.A., and I started hearing these stories. I saw one human in particular who didn’t identify as male or female. Looking at them, they were both: beautiful and sexy and tough but vulnerable and feminine but masculine,” she revealed, adding she related to them more than anyone she had ever met. “Even though I may seem very different, people may not see me as neutral as I feel. But I feel very neutral. I think that was the first gender-neutral person I’d ever met. Once I understood my gender more, which was unassigned, then I understood my sexuality more. I was like, ‘Oh — that’s why I don’t feel straight and I don’t feel gay. It’s because I’m not.'”

Three days after Tiger Woods committed to his first PGA Tour event in 14 months, he abruptly withdrew, leaving this week’s Safeway Open with twice as many tickets sold as a year ago but a fraction of the star power.
The Woods wing of fans descending on Napa, Calif., this week will still be able to see the five-time major winner Phil Mickelson, no small consolation prize. But the announcement of Woods’s withdrawal, first reported by Golf Channel on Monday and later confirmed by Woods in a statement posted on his website, came as the interest in his comeback had intensified into a Category 4 hype storm.
It partly manifested in the gambling world: Bettors could wager on whether Woods’s first drive would find the fairway and if he would finish in the top 10. His odds of winning were listed as 40 to 1, better than all but eight players in the field. The two-time major winner Johnny Miller — an owner of the course hosting this week’s event, the PGA Tour’s season opener — described the straightforward layout as ideal for Woods to ease his way back into a “second career” that Miller said would produce another six or eight victories.
A fellow touring pro, Jesper Parnevik, gushed about Woods’s game after playing a nine-hole practice round with him recently, telling Golf Channel, “Comebacks are never a sure thing, but something tells me his might be spectacular.”
All the talk, however well intentioned, intensified the pressure on Woods, whose final three shots in front of the public, from 100 yards out during a media day in May for a tournament that benefits his foundation, all found a water hazard. People may remember his promising finish to the season last year, when he contended before settling for a tie for 10th at the Wyndham Championship in what turned out to be his last competitive event. But it cannot be easy for Woods to forget how he started 2015: with a first-round withdrawal and three scores in the 80s in his first six events.
Since his five-victory season in 2013, Woods has acquired a kind of scar tissue that no amount of vitamin E will ameliorate. The only remedy for Woods is to play and accept that his shots might get worse before his scores get better. For Woods to have committed to a tournament on Friday before changing his mind three days later suggests that his problem is mental, not physical.
Woods, 40, appears to be experiencing performance anxiety, and really, who in his position would not feel a little like the emperor with no game? In the statement on his website, Woods described his game as “vulnerable and not where it needs to be.”
His candid assessment called to mind a line from “I Said Yes to Everything,” the memoir of the Academy Award-winning actress Lee Grant. In it, she wrote, “The problem when you are a star, when the money rests on you as an actor, is that your freedom to fail is gone.”
Woods’s freedom to miss the first fairway or miss the cut is gone. Any other player who had been sidelined from competitive golf for more than 400 days, as Woods has, would not be expected to return and immediately resume his winning ways. Yet before he withdrew, oddsmakers were listing Woods not that far behind the favorites.
Woods also pulled out of next month’s Turkish Airlines Open, which would have been his second event.
“I will continue to work hard and plan to play at my foundation’s event, the Hero World Challenge,” Woods said, referring to the December event that he hosts in the Bahamas.
A winner of 79 tour events, Woods missed all four majors this year for the first time since he turned pro in August 1996. He secured the first of those Tour wins 20 years ago last week. Since his successful 2013 season, Woods has had three surgical procedures and 18 tour starts. He is four major victories from equaling Jack Nicklaus’s record and three tour victories from equaling Sam Snead’s career mark.
Snead and, more recently, Mickelson, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh and Steve Stricker summoned some of their best golf in their 40s. There is no reason to believe Woods cannot win again. But to succeed — or even start — this second career, as Miller called it, Woods is going to have to forget the golfer he was in his prime, the one whose goal in every event he entered was to win.
“After a lot of hours,” Woods said in his statement, “I knew I wasn’t ready to compete against the best golfers in the world.”
If he compares his shots now with his shots then, Woods is never going to feel ready. That does not mean he cannot compete. He should not let the hype machine chase him into retirement just because he has a new normal. As he resets his timetable, Woods should adopt this swing thought: Perfect is the enemy of good.
UPDATE: According toShailene Woodley's rep, she has been released from Morton County Jail in North Dakota.
Her publicist tells E! News, "She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline."
The actress was peacefully protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline Monday when she was arrested for trespassing, E! News confirms.
The Fault in Our Stars actress captured the whole ordeal on Facebook Live, making sure to record everything so people could see what was happening. At one point her camera was facing the wrong way, so she clarified what was happening. "I don't know if you guys just heard me, but I was walking back to my RV, which is right there so that we can go back to camp peacefully and they grabbed me by my jacket and said that I was not allowed to continue," she told her viewers. "And they had giant guns and batons and zip ties and they're not letting me go."
When Woodley tries to ask the cop a question, the cop responded, "We can't talk right here, but you're going to be placed under arrest for criminal trespassing."
She then tries to ask why only she is being arrested, and the cop informs her it's because she has been identified. "Alright I'm being arrested," she continued. "Because I was trespassing like everyone. As soon as you guys asked me to leave, I l left. She was down there, everybody was down there. I'm being arrested. I was down there with everybody else. I don't know what's going on? As soon as they came I left… it's because I'm well known. It's because I have 40,000 people watching."
Woodley added, "So everybody knows…we were going to our vehicle which they had all surrounded and waiting for me with giant guns and a giant truck behind them just so they could arrest me. I hope you're watching mainstream media."
E! News has reached out to her rep for comment. The Morton County Sheriff confirmed to E! News that Woodley was arrested arrested for criminal trespassing. Twenty six other people were also arrested.
Russia’s UN ambassador says he never complained to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon about criticism of Donald Trump because he wasn’t aware that the Republican presidential candidate had been the target of criticism by the U.N. human rights chief.
The Associated Press on Friday quoted three diplomats familiar with the conversation as saying that Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin angrily protested two speeches by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein denouncing “demagogues” and specifically targeting Trump and several populist European leaders.
Churkin told reporters Monday that he had received one paragraph of instructions from Moscow to tell Ban that Zeid “went too far” in his public remarks about some government officials in Europe.
Donald Trump may prove to be the cataclysmic loser from the exposure of the "Access Hollywood" tape that contained probably the crudest, most offensive language ever heard from a presidential nominee.
But the incident was not the finest hour for the organization that actually owned the tape: NBC. Thanks to a series of decisions that can be described as at least curious, NBC News missed out on gaining credit for the scoop of the campaign, an October surprise to put all others that have come before it to shame.
And it has left NBC News answering questions about its hyper-cautious reaction to the tape, and pondering if it can rehabilitate the image of its recent high-profile anchor hire, Billy Bush. Bush's behavior on the tape is creepy, nauseating -- and, if the reaction on Twitter and elsewhere is any indication, worthy of severe sanctions, up to and including an invitation to exit the organization. Indeed, late Sunday, NBC told the staff of the "Today" show that Bush had been suspended, pending further review, citing the fact there was "no excuse" for his language and behavior on the tape.

The facts of what happened have come out over the past couple of days. Producers at "Access Hollywood" found the tape in their archives. It was part of a report about Trump visiting the NBC soap opera "Days of Our Lives" in 2005.
Anyone watching the tape and hearing the exchanges between Trump and Bush should have instantly concluded -- as the Washington Post reporter who eventually broke the story did -- that this was explosive material, demonstrating vividly the depth of the Republican candidate's crude misogynistic attitude -- and behavior --toward women.
NBC reacted a bit differently. The network took four days to conclude it was time to move forward with the story. NBC now denies reports that it actually planned to sit on it even longer, until after Sunday's debate. That was the plan of "Access Hollywood," the company's fluffy entertainment magazine show, which NBC News was going to allow to break the story.
The rationale for the delay, NBC executives said in several conversations with reporters this weekend, had to do with, among other things, concern about Mr. Trump possibly suing. The network held a series of discussions with its lawyers over whether it was ethical to use a conversation that was on microphone but largely off camera.
California, where the event took place, is a state that requires two-party consent on taping a conversation. But Trump clearly had consented; he was wearing a microphone throughout, and knew cameras were there as he emerged from a bus.

Still, it took from Tuesday to Friday for NBC's lawyers to thrash this out. By the time a plan was in place to run the story on NBC News sometime Friday (after finally deciding "Access Hollywood" was taking too long the break the story first), someone at NBC took matters in his or her own hands and leaked the tape to the Post.
The Post had to deal with the issue of having to verify the tape, which it quickly did. NBC owned the tape, knew where it came from, when it was made, and that Trump had consented to wearing a microphone. But it hesitated over the legal question and other mysterious issues that NBC has so far declined to discuss.
Notably, news organizations did not hesitate in the past to cover taped statements by presidential candidates who were being recorded surreptitiously, clearly without their consent. That happened in 2008 with Barack Obama's famous comments about people retreating to their guns and religion, which took place in a private fundraising meeting, and in 2012 with Mitt Romney's comments about 47 percent of the country being takers -- also at a private meeting. NBC covered both those stories.
As this one unfolded, the Post got a story out in a matter of hours. NBC was forced to play catch up on a story based on its own material.
Was the presence -- and embarrassing behavior -- of Billy Bush a factor? NBC officially says no. His humiliating sucking up to Trump was always going to be part of the story, according to NBC.
Bush, the long-time anchor of "Access Hollywood," where his main role was conducting fawning interviews of celebrities, was in May named an anchor of the 9 a.m. hour of "Today." Speculation -- though not from anyone in authority at NBC News -- has put him in the running to succeed Matt Lauer one day as the main host of the show.
NBC does officially describe Bush as a journalist, despite his complete lack of serious journalistic credentials. (He did once host the game show "Let's Make a Deal" as well as Trump's Miss Universe pageants.)

As for his future, that is now clearly in doubt, as NBC apparently recognized how toxic he had become to female viewers. NBC News, of course, took action against its most important journalist, Brian Williams, for fabrications about news stories he was involved in. He was suspended for six months, after executives seriously considered firing him.
On the infamous tape, Bush first eggs on Trump to ogle a woman and hoots at his account of engaging in sexual aggression against women, then acts like an enabler for Trump, insisting that a soap opera actress give them both a hug.
Bush issued an apology in a statement, but he has been excoriated on Twitter and elsewhere, especially by women outraged by his comments and behavior. Now NBC may feel compelled to take further action against him.
As for the decisions that cost NBC the rights to the biggest news story of the 2016 election, the network's official position is that it simply doesn't care about that.
Mark Kornblau, a spokesman for NBC News, said Sunday, "We are comfortable with having reported this six minutes after the Washington Post, and before everyone else. We believe we reported a tough and important story responsibly and quickly."
