The most respected bank CEO just made some interesting observations.
When Maria Torres and her sister-in-law got an emergency notification on the Nextdoor app Sunday night, they had to do a double-take. It said a tiger was on the loose in a nearby Houston neighborhood. "We got in the car and went to check it out," Torres told ABC News on Monday.

Trey Mancini hit a go-ahead solo homer and later knocked in an insurance run, Jorge López and four relievers combined on a four-hitter and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 4-1 on Monday night. The Orioles had dropped their first six games at Camden Yards this season against the Red Sox and avoided a four-game sweep. Boston still has the best record (22-14) and the best road record (12-5) in baseball.
Pascal Siakam is a private person, and questioned whether broadcasting his grand Mother's Day gesture was a good idea. But his mom's tears of joy were worth it, he said. The Raptors power forward surprised his mom with a lavish new house on Sunday, capturing the touching moment with a video that went viral on social media. "For me, man, Mom's been everything to us. My dad being gone, she's just a superhero, she's just done it all the time without complaining," said Siakam, whose siblings convinced him to post the video. "Just having something special for us, for my family, and having been through a lot of tough things, for me to be able to bring that joy to the family is just such a blessing." Siakam's dad Tchamo died in a car accident in 2014. Siakam was at college in the U.S. and wasn't able to return to Cameroon for the funeral because of visa issues. Siakam wouldn't divulge where the house is, but the joy of the moment was a welcome reprieve in a tough NBA season rocked by COVID-19. “It was a lot," he said of the emotional day. "It was hard to know if she was happy or sad. It was just tough. But I just think she was super excited . . . you can see her running around. It was a pretty good moment." The Raptors were eliminated from post-season contention on Monday night when Indiana's 111-102 victory over Cleveland put a spot in the play-in tournament out of reach for Toronto. Hours earlier, Siakam spoke about the tough season, and the growing he's done on the court and off. "I hate making excuses but we've just been through a lot. Just thinking about the whole season and a lot of ups and downs and things that happened in basketball and outside of basketball." The latest down was a shoulder injury suffered in Saturday's 10-point loss Memphis. Siakam had 18 points before sitting the fourth quarter. He expected more diagnostic testing done Monday. The 27-year-old is averaging 21.4 points per game on 45.5 per cent shooting from the field in 56 games of a season that saw the Raptors forced to play out of Tampa, and then plummet down the Eastern Conference standings amid a COVID-19 outbreak in March. "It's a lot going on and I've felt like you go through so much with COVID and the world literally shut down. It's pretty crazy when you sit down and think about it," Siakam said. "It just helps you put things in perspective, just knowing what is important and what matters. "That is one of the things I learned, just knowing who is actually with you and who will support you when things are not going well and who will be there for you. This moment kind of helped me put that in perspective." Siakam was blasted by some on social media after he struggled in the NBA bubble last summer in Florida, and he's received more backlash in recent weeks for missed shots late in games. He signed a four-year, US$130 million US contract extension in 2019. A contract that big comes with the sometimes harsh glare of the spotlight, a place Siakam said he's not always comfortable. "It's crazy, you get so much more attention and it's something that I'm not used to and it's not really me or my character, so I think that it's just been interesting to manage that and figure out who you wanna be as a person, either on the court or off the court," Siakam said. "Obviously . . . I’m super blessed to be in this position." Raptors coach Nick Nurse is proud of Siakam's growth off the court. The organization, Nurse said, has staff members that counsel players through life skills like financial management, etc. "You can see guys maturing and probably make better decisions. But there are so many ups and downs. People make mistakes. You say, 'Aw, shoot, he finally matured, I can quit worrying about him.' That’s in all aspects of what everyone does," Nurse said. "I was listening to something earlier in the morning and they were saying an NFL football coach gets a call every single day . . . about something off the field or relationships or whatever. You always try to give the best guidance you can. I think our organization puts a tremendous infrastructure in place for that, and you just go from there.” Siakam, who came up through the team's G League affiliate Raptors 905, said this was his first losing season in a decade in the sport. "It's tough," he said. "You learn from it." This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 10, 2021. Lori Ewing, The Canadian Press

Chris Driedger stopped 30 shots to record his third shutout of the season, Juho Lammikko scored a short-handed goal, and the Florida Panthers secured home-ice advantage for the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in the regular season finale for both clubs on Monday night. The Lightning opened the game with the first all-Black line in NHL history -- Mathieu Joseph, Gemel Smith and Daniel Walcott. Walcott was making his NHL debut, Smith was in his fifth game of the season and Joseph has been in the lineup for all 56 Tampa Bay games in 2020-21. Carter Verhaeghe scored a goal in his first game back from injury, and Alex Wennberg and MacKenzie Weegar also scored goals for the Panthers. Keith Yandle had an assist and recorded his 600th NHL point. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 26 stops for the Lightning. The teams will meet in the first round of the playoffs, the first instance of the Sunshine State rivals going head-to-head in the post-season. The NHL has not announced when that series will begin. Leading 1-0, Lammikko’s short-handed goal put the Panthers ahead 2-0 at 8:23 of the second. Vasilevskiy nonchalantly played the puck behind the net, and Lammikko hustled over and tucked the puck behind Vasilevskiy’s left skate on a wraparound. Verhaeghe stretched the Panthers lead to 3-0 on his shot from the right circle 2:27 into the third. Verhaeghe returned after missing 13 games with an upper-body injury. Wennberg tipped in a shot from Radko Gudas with 5:53 left to make the score 4-0. Weegar gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead when he fired a shot from the slot that went high into the net with 4:41 left in the first period. Florida played without forward Jonathan Huberdeau for the first time this season, after he was a late scratch with an upper-body injury and was listed as day-to-day. Huberdeau had 20 goals and 41 assists for Florida this season, his fourth consecutive year with at least 20 scores. PANTHERS RECORDS It was, by far, the best regular season in Florida history. The Panthers had the best point percentage in team history, best home record and best road record. It was also the first time they won the regular-season series against the Lightning in four years; Florida has won the in-state series 14 times, Tampa Bay eight times and the clubs have split their regular-season meetings four times. COOPER’S MARK This was the eighth full season on the Tampa Bay bench for Lightning coach Jon Cooper. He’s responsible for eight of Tampa Bay’s 10 best regular season records -- and no team in the NHL has had a better record in the last five seasons combined than the reigning Stanley Cup champions. IRONMEN Florida defenceman Yandle’s consecutive-game streak is now at 12 seasons and counting; he appeared in all 56 games this season and has played in 922 straight going back to March 2009, the second-longest such run in NHL history. He is 42 games shy of tying Doug Jarvis’ NHL record. Frank Vatrano and Alex Wennberg were the other 56-game performers for Florida this season. Tampa Bay had five players appear in all 56 games -- Joseph, Brayden Point, Mikhail Sergachev, Yanni Gourde and Alex Killorn. Pat Maroon was in line to but was suspended for Monday’s game by the NHL for his actions in Saturday’s overheated contest with the Panthers. Ondrej Palat and Barclay Goodrow also missed games for the first time this season, both scratches. ATTENDANCE The Panther cap attendance at 25% capacity. 5,040 attended the season finale on Monday, a limited capacity sellout for the second consecutive game. Paul Gereffi, The Associated Press

BOSTON — Taylor Hall scored his second goal of the game 2:53 into overtime and the Boston Bruins beat the New York Islanders in their home finale on Monday night to clinch third place in the East Division. Brad Marchand also scored for Boston, which will face second-place Washington in the first round of the playoffs. Tuukka Rask had 16 saves. Mathew Barzal and Oliver Wahlstrom scored for the Islanders. Semyon Varlamov made 25 saves before he was replaced to start the third period by Ilya Sorokin, who stopped 10 shots. New York will face East champion Pittsburgh in the first round. Hall cut in front and beat Sorokin with a backhander for the game-winner. Varlamov wasn’t on the bench for after the second intermission, and Cory Schneider came out in uniform and took a seat about seven minutes into the third period. Going for the win in regulation, the Islanders pulled Sorokin for an extra skater with about a minute to play. Marchand had a long shot that just went just wide. Boston had grabbed a 2-1 edge when Marchand, positioned at the top of the crease, redirected David Krejci’s pass into the net for his team-leading 29th goal at 6:15 of the second, but Barzal slipped a wrister over Rask’s right shoulder from the high slot just over two minutes later. Varlamov kept it tied with two solid saves in the closing minute of the second; dropping to block Sean Kuraly’s close bid and flashing his left pad on Patrice Bergeron’s shot from the slot. Trailing 1-0, the Islanders tied it on Wahlstrom’s power-play goal that beat Rask past his stick with New York skating on a 4-on-3 advantage. Hall’s goal made it 1-0 in the final minute of the opening period. With the Bruins on a two-man, power-play advantage he one-timed Krejci’s pass from the opposite side of the ice inside the near post on a tough-angle shot. MEMORY LANE Fifty-one years ago, Bobby Orr scored an overtime goal against St. Louis to give the Bruins the Stanley Cup, with the Hall of Fame defenceman flying through-the-air horizontally with his stick raised after he was tripped just after the puck went into the net. The moment is forever captured with a statue just outside the entrance to TD Garden. LARGER CROWDS ALLOWED Monday’s game marked the first day that the state of Massachusetts was allowing 25% capacity at larger venues like the Garden and Fenway Park. Due to restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic, attendance had been limited to 12% since for fans on March 22. “Let’s GO Bruins!” chants were noticeably louder. NOTES: Hall has eight goals with Boston since being acquired from Buffalo in a trade-deadline deal. … Bruins forward Ondrej Kase played for the first time since sustaining an upper-body injury on Jan. 16, but forward Charlie Coyle missed his third straight with an upper-body injury. … Varlamov entered the night leading the league with seven shutouts. UP NEXT Islanders: Open playoffs against Pittsburgh. Bruins: At Washington on Tuesday night, the regular-season finale for both teams. ___ More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Ken Powtak, The Associated Press
