  • Highly effective new anti-cancer drug shows few side effects—in mice

    22 Oct 2014 | 8:38 am
    A new drug, known as OTS964, can eradicate aggressive human lung cancers transplanted into mice, according to a new report. The drug, given as a pill or by injection, inhibits the action of a protein that is overproduced by several tumor types, including lung and breast, but is rarely expressed in healthy adult tissues. Without this protein, cancer cells begin the cell-division process but fail to complete it and die. When taken by mouth, the drug was well tolerated with limited toxicity. An...

    By Steve Silverman The Chargers and the Broncos have something more on their minds than the epic fantasy battle that is at hand when they meet in Denver Thursday night. While the battle between Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning could light up the scoreboard, these are the two best teams in the AFC West and they are playing to establish position for the second half of the season. If the Chargers can come up with a win on the road, they will tie the Broncos for first, but if Manning and the Broncos come away with the victory, they will have a two-game lead. Defense could play a much bigger role…

    Let me begin by saying that I am a San Francisco Giants fan. A die-hard Giants fan. I always make that abundantly clear when I first introduce myself to someone. The conversation tends to go: my name, how are you, I’m a Giants fan. Not in any particular order. And if I’m not wearing some sort of San Fran gear, then stay away — because I am probably extremely agitated. Because of this, I’m sure you can imagine the sheer fanatical joy that is pulsating through my body right now as the Giants play in their third World Series in five years. Yes, pulsating.

  • Foreign Aid 101

    Since the first foreign aid plan — the Marshall Plan — was created in 1948 to finance the restoration of Europe’s economies after World War II, the U.S. has been sending resources to other countries in the form of foreign aid. What is foreign aid? Foreign aid, also called foreign assistance, is the resources that one country gives to other countries. While most people think of foreign aid as money, assistance can also be given in the form of material goods, such as medical supplies or military equipment. Are there different types of aid? There are different ways to classify aid. The…
  • Phoenix Sports Debate: Don’t pay college athletes

    Nursing students are not paid to attend clinical. Med students are not paid to learn every bone and organ in the body. Law students are not paid to learn the country’s court system. The list goes on and on. So why should college athletes be treated any differently? One of the major arguments in support of paying college athletes is that they do not have time to get a paying job due to practices and games. If that is the best argument one can conjure up to, colleges might as well start paying students who work unpaid internships, are involved in Greek life or do any extracurricular activity…

    Target set. Target hit. For longtime St. Francis volleyball coach Peg Kopec, Wednesday’s 25-15, 25-15 score wasn’t that big a deal, but the “W” was. “That’s 28 consecutive seasons of 30 wins or more. That’s the big stat for me,” said Kopec, who has been coaching the Spartans since 1974. “I’m pretty proud of that. It says a lot about the consistency of quality play that we’ve had. It’s exciting.” The Spartans dispensed with a young Rosary team that had taken them to three sets in an earlier Suburban Christian Conference matchup, falling 23-25, 25-10, 25-20. There was…

    I was a bit stunned when I read this. He said Trestman was trying a bit too hard to make everyone "feel special" by rotating the captains. Emery is circling the wagons and saying how he supports Tucker, Trestman & Cutler. But doesn't it sound like the wheels are coming off this season? We're imploding from within. If the season absolutely collapses I wonder if Emery will continue to give that support to Tucker, Trestman & Cutler - and risk being swept away...

  • Emery said what?!?!?!

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:21 am
    I'm beggining to wonder about this guy as much as Trestman. In his conference he stated that a qb w/an above .500 winning percentage in the NFL is considered elite(in defense of Cutler). If this is the case then he believes that these qb's are elite: Rex Grossman Matt Schaub Mark Sanchez Vince Young Kyle Orton Bryan Hoyer Raise your hand if you think these guys are elite.
  • So was the Trestman experiment a "fail" or is this on Emery?

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    #1. It's Emery's job to provide the team solid players. #2. It's Trestman's job to see that the players are ready to play and win. #3. It's a failure at GM or HC (or both) if the product on the field stinks. Who failed here? Is the team underperforming due to a coaching failure? Or are these players at their ceiling - indicating Emery failed?​

  • Derrick Rose's Defensive Domination of Kyrie Irving

    Kevin Ferrigan
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:04 am
    DRose didn't just dominate Kyrie offensively. He also really contained him on the other end. One of the popular narratives that came out of the Bulls-Cavaliers' game on Monday was that Kyrie Irving and Derrick Rose were the next big point guard rivalry in the NBA. This was mostly to do with Rose scoring 30 points, and Kyrie answering with 28 points. Weeeeeell, about that. It really wasn't that close. Rose did most of his offensive damage while being guarded by Irving, as Kyrie played over 38 minutes. On the flip side, Rose played just 24 minutes and Kyrie did most of his damage with Rose off…
  • Jimmy Butler injury: Sprained thumb could sideline Bulls wing at start of regular season

    Ricky O'Donnell
    21 Oct 2014 | 4:02 pm
    The season doesn't begin until next Wednesday, but the Bulls already have their first injured starter. Jimmy Butler was in obvious pain when he injured his thumb during the first quarter of Sunday's preseason victory against the Charlotte Hornets. Butler came over the sideline wincing, but the Bulls did not take him out of the game. He stayed on the court for a few more minutes until Aaron Brooks was subbed in with one minute remaining in the period. The Bulls confirmed the initial diagnosis for Butler with an MRI on Tuesday. He has a sprained left thumb. He won't practice the rest of the…

    MRI on Tuesday Jimmy Butler sprained his thumb Sunday night and did not play against the Cavaliers on Monday. KC Johnson with the details: Jimmy Butler will undergo an MRI on Tuesday in Chicago, but early indications are that his sprained left thumb won't need surgery. The Bulls officially called [Butler] day to day. It was strange to hear Thibodeau tell the media that surgery wasn't warranted before acknowledging the MRI hadn't occurred yet, but in all likelihood this is minor. The Bulls only have one remaining preseason game, Friday, so the Bulls may be cautious with this one and give him…
  • Bulls vs. Cavaliers final score: Derrick Rose puts on a show in Bulls loss

    your friendly BullsBlogger
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:57 pm
    Cavaliers coach David Blatt did say that he'd treat Monday night's PRESEASON SHOWDOWN against the Bulls like a regular season game, and he sort of did that. Even moreso than Thibs! Look at our restrained big-picture thinking head coach over here. So while the Cavs did have their stars in for more time than the Bulls did and won the game, Derrick Rose had a stretch that spanned the 2nd and 3rd quarters that can give Bulls fans plenty of hope. Rose went off for 16 straight Bulls points in that time, include 3 three-pointers. You can check out a lot of that stretch here. As we've seen before in…

    By Cody Westerlund: CHICAGO (CBS) – With about 40 seconds left in Sunday’s preseason game between the Bulls and Hornets, the United Center crowd rose to its feet in the first fever pitch of the night. These faithful had been waiting a long time for this sight. Their star, Derrick Rose, with the ball in his hands and a game hanging in the balance in crunch time. For the first time in nearly 11 months, Rose was front and center in the fourth quarter for the Bulls, and he didn’t disappoint. After leading for most of the game, Chicago held off Charlotte for a 101-96 win thanks in part to…

    CHICAGO (AP) — Kirk Hinrich scored 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting and the Chicago Bulls beat the Charlotte Hornets 101-96 in an exhibition game Sunday night. Pau Gasol added 15 points and 10 rebounds to help the Bulls (4-2) win their fourth straight game. The Bulls led by 18 and entered the fourth up 83-70, but Charlotte rallied to cut it to one with 1:30 left on Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s three-point play. Derrick Rose answered with a jumper and, after the teams traded misses, Charlotte’s Gary Neal missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 13 seconds left. Rose had 17 points in…

Javier Baez, Eric Jokisch, Matt Szczur and Rafael Lopez all made their Major League debuts this season with the Cubs, and all are former Giansanti roomies.

  • Watch all 37 of Giancarlo Stanton's home runs in 2014 — almost three miles worth (Video) (Big League Stew)

From Whistle Sports comes this video focusing on all 37 home runs hit by Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton during the 2014 season, and as a cool aside it keeps a running count of his total home run distance. Stanton's total home run distance is 15,366 feet, which equals 2.91 miles. Chances are the distance would have gone well beyond three miles had he not missed Miami's final 17 games after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers' fastball. In fact, had he connected for a 474-footer on his 38th…

    The Royals barely showed up in Game 1. They'll try to do better in Game 2. It's been said by numerous people, myself included, that the Royals' great run through the end of the regular season and first couple of playoff rounds was reminiscent of what the 2007 Rockies did in a similar time frame. Those Rockies went 13-1 in their last 14 regular-season games, beat the Padres in a tiebreaker (though the Padres are still waiting for Matt Holliday to touch the plate) and then swept the Phillies and Diamondbacks to make the World Series... where they got swept by a clearly superior team, the Red…

  • On Scouting Cubs Prospect Kyle Schwarber

    Tim Huwe
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    What should fans expect from Kyle Schwarber in 2015? Is Schwarber as a major-league starting catcher a realistic prospect? In August 2014 a scout ventured to the Florida State League to get first-hand eyes on Kyle Schwarber. He had developed some bad habits at the plate. When Schwarber looks anemic offensively, his defense will rarely save him. Shortly thereafter, he went on an Alfonso Soriano-esque hot streak. Suddenly, Schwarber was well again. What should we expect from Schwarber in 2015? I was able to watch Kyle Schwarber twice last season. Once, while catching, he did a representative…

He knows, instead, that he'll get a brand-burnishing schmoozefest with his pal, Bruce Dold, the paper's editorial page editor (and also the person who will write the Tribune's inevitable re-election endorsement in February). Once again, it's the editorial page undermining the reporting staff - as I've talked about in our last two…

    Going into Week 8 looks like a good time to revisit my experiment in mock drafting only on hype and future potential. I undertook that experiment at the beginning of the season because I wanted to see if it produced better results than leaning on history and fantasy experts who mostly lean on history. The reason why the timing looks good to check in is that few of the guys I picked seemed to wake up from season-long slumbers in Week 7, though I don't know what that suggests for the rest of the season. What I have learned from this experiment, in short: My all-futures team kind of sucks. You…

  • Google to Google Partners: Quit Being Sketchy

    22 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    The latest Google Partners policy update, emailed to those in their ‘Partners’ program last week, reads more like an intro to basic ethics class than an official policy from one of the world’s largest companies.  But, as I’ve heard before: if it seems obvious to some, it need to be explained to others (or something along those lines). The update to their third party policy, which officially goes into effect in November, outlines several new guidelines in transparency & account setup– none of which, IMO, should come as any surprise to those already managing…

    One of the many new features of Apple’s iOS 8, released last month, is the HealthKit– iOS’s collective dashboard of health-related information, mostly compiled through the data-sharing of third-party apps. Many iOS health-related apps have already integrated with HealthKit– including LoseIt, MyFitnessPal, and JawBone, with more expected to join the foray in the coming months. Image via DigitalTrends One popular wearable fitness tracking manufacturer, FitBit, quietly admitted on its customer forums that it has no plans to integrate with HealthKit as of now. As a FitBit…
  • Amazon Has a Bona Fide Hit with “Transparent”

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    There are plenty of times where “the critics” and I don’t agree on things. Happily, this is not one of them. Amazon’s Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and created by Chicago-native Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under), is every bit as good as it’s 98% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes suggests. Transparent revolves around a dysfunctional (though what does that even mean anymore?) LA-based family and the revelation that their father (played by Tambor) is transgender. The dramedy is more drama than laugh-out-loud funny (as Six Feet Under fans…

    Image via TechSpot In an effort to be more like Facebook get “more relevant” information in front of users, Twitter has just revealed that they are, in fact, experimenting with users’ Timelines. These experiments include the company occasionally mixing in tweets of other users you don’t currently follow based on popularity and “other signals”.

    I didn’t watch the Livestream of today’s Apple event, where the iPad Mini 3 and Air 2 were revealed. To paraphrase one of my favorite movies of all time, Office Space, it wasn’t that I was too lazy to watch…it’s that I just don’t care. If you want to learn more about the new tablets, click here for the iPad Air 2 or here for the iPad Mini 3. I won’t be covering either below. For those that stuck around…  I have an iPad– an older model, the 3 I think –and it’s just fine, for what it is: a device to surf the web, use Twitter,…
