The Federal Trade Commission effectively shut down sales of Guerrero’s “neuroprotective’’ drink, Neurosafe, in 2014, repudiating his “extraordinary claims.’’Nine years … [Read more...] about Patriots pay a business owned by Tom Brady and Alex Guerrero, a partner with a dubious past

Garance Burke and Martha Mendoza Associated Press Published 6:58 AM EDT Sep 19, 2018 Palo Alto, Calif. – Her studies first brought her West, but for Christine Margaret Blasey Ford, the move to California proved a way to leave behind what had gone wrong in her teenage years in the patrician suburbs of Washington, D.C. Born into a well-off family in Montgomery County, Maryland, Ford has said she spent years working to recover from an assault as a young girl in that world of prep school parties – by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she would disclose years later. Long before she decided to come forward, Ford, now 51, had built a new life for herself in Malibu, Honolulu and the San Francisco Bay area, embracing academia, surfing, cheering on the Stanford football team and taking in outdoor rock concerts. Ford settled in the Silicon Valley in the 1990s, when the first wave of the tech boom was transforming lives around her and startups were replacing peach orchards. … [Read more...] about Kavanaugh accuser’s colleagues point to her integrity
By Washington Post | PUBLISHED: September 7, 2018 at 8:36 am | UPDATED: September 7, 2018 at 8:42 am By Peter Holley | The Washington Post They have been pouring into emergency rooms around the nation all summer, their bodies bearing a blend of injuries that doctors normally associate with victims of car wrecks – broken noses, wrists and shoulders, facial lacerations and fractures, as well as the kind of blunt head trauma that can leave brains permanently damaged. When doctors began asking patients to explain their injuries, many were surprised to learn that the surge of broken body parts stemmed from the latest urban transportation trend: shared electric scooters. In Santa Monica, California – where one of the biggest electric-scooter companies is based – the city’s fire department has responded to 34 serious accidents involving the devices this summer. The director of an emergency department there said his team treated 18 patients who were seriously … [Read more...] about Scooter use is rising in major cities. So are trips to the emergency room.
Associated Press Published 7:25 p.m. UTC Aug 31, 2018 Cincinnati — For the second year in a row, the Bengals lost a backup quarterback in the final preseason game. Matt Barkley’s left knee was injured by a low hit after he threw a pass during Cincinnati’s 27-26 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night, giving Jeff Driskel the inside track for the backup spot. “It’s a bummer Matt went down,” said Driskel, who knows how it feels. Last year, Driskel broke the thumb on his passing hand during the final preseason game at Indianapolis, sidelining him for the season. He and Barkley were competing for the No. 2 job heading into the final game. The Bengals (3-1) also have seventh-round pick Logan Woodside. Coach Marvin Lewis had no further information about Barkley’s injury after the game. It was the most high-profile job up for grabs in a game that featured few starters. The Colts’ Andrew Luck and the Bengals’ Andy Dalton … [Read more...] about Thursday’s NFL: QB Barkley injured in Bengals’ loss
