Manchester United and Liverpool's Premier League clash was reportedly delayed Sunday after crowds of protestors broke into the stadium in opposition to the Glazer family's ownership of the Manchester-based team.

Why it matters: The protests are part of the ongoing fallout from the failed European Super League, a breakaway coalition of 12 of world soccer's biggest and richest clubs that would have upended soccer's structures and economics. The relationship between United fans and its American owners had already soured before the debacle.

Flashback: Manchester United co-chair Joel Glazer apologized in a letter to fans last week for the team's involvement in the proposed league, which fell apart just two days after being announced.

  • "You made very clear your opposition to the European Super League, and we have listened. We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right," Glazer said, per ESPN.
  • The apology was apparently rejected, the Guardian notes.

Officials in the northern California town of Greenville on Thursday said they were at a loss for words to describe the widespread destruction left by the massive Dixie Fire, which razed businesses and homes Wednesday night.

What they're saying: "Our beloved small town of Greenville, CA faced our biggest nightmare," Plumas County Supervisor Kevin Goss wrote on Facebook. "Our historical buildings, families homes, small businesses, and our children's schools are completely lost."

Laurene Powell Jobs' $3.5 billion climate campaign

Laurene Powell Jobs, president of Emerson Collective, is investing $3.5 billion in her new climate-action group, the Waverley Street Foundation — all to be spent in 10 years, as a way to show urgency on the issue.

  • Then the group will sunset.

The big picture: The foundation "will focus on initiatives and ideas that will aid underserved communities who are most impacted by climate change," an official tells Axios.

Singer R. Kelly on Monday was found guilty of racketeering and eight counts of violating an anti-sex trafficking law, the New York Times reports.

Why it matters: Sexual misconduct allegations have surrounded R. Kelly's career, including a child sexual abuse image case in 2008 where he was acquitted. Multiple other victims have come forward to speak about the abuse in recent years.
