Amazon warehouse workers in Alabama may get a second chance to vote on whether to form the company's first unionized warehouse in the United States.

A federal labor official has found that Amazon's anti-union tactics tainted this spring's election sufficiently to scrap its results, according to the union that sought to represent the workers. The official is recommending a do-over of the unionization vote, the union said in a release.

Angela McNamara's first hint that her Facebook account had been hacked was an early-morning email warning someone was trying to log into her account.

The duel between Olympic high jumpers Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar and Gianmarco Tamberi of Italy seemed destined to end in tears.

Round after round, the two star athletes simply could not outdo one another — prompting an official to tell them the next step was a "jump-off," to see who could simply outlast the other.

But that's when things took a turn — one that quickly became a symbol of the sportsmanship and friendship the Olympics were designed to create.

Team USA's baseball squad lost a 7-6 nail-biter Monday to host nation Japan in extra innings, leaving the Americans with no room for error as they hope to play their way into the gold medal final.

Facing the tournament's only other undefeated team, the U.S. had been poised for a pivotal win after grabbing a 6-3 lead. But Japan fought its way back and then forced extra innings after tying the score 6-6 in the bottom of the ninth.

From there, the tension only built higher. Under Olympic rules, teams start extra innings with runners on both first and second base.
