Thomas Muller's flying kick vs. Ajax was eerily accurate recreation of Bundesliga logo

Thomas Muller's flying kick was possibly the most 'on-brand' red card ever seen in football. They may have salvaged a dramatic 3-3 draw against Ajax in their final Champions League group match, but Bayern Munich had to muddle through the final stages of the game with 10 men after losing Thomas Muller to a straight red card. The forward was dismissed in fairly uncontroversial circumstances when, in attempting to bring down a high ball, he inadvertently planted his studs into the he...

Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka showed 'big personality' in full debut for Gunners

LONDON -- Arsenal coach Unai Emery hailed 17-year-old Bukayo Saka for playing "with a very big personality" on his full debut for the Gunners in Thursday's 1-0 win over Qarabag in the Europa League. Saka made his first start for the Gunners on the left wing showed plenty of confidence as he tested goalkeeper Vagner with an early strike from the edge of the box and tried to take on defenders with an exciting blend of pace and skill. He probably should have capped his performance with a goal ...

Hitchcock & Oilers Rolling While Other New Coaches Struggle

When the struggling Edmonton Oilers dropped the axe on head coach Todd McLellan and replaced him with the briefly-retired Ken Hitchcock last month, part of Peter Chiarelli's reasoning for the move came from a belief his team's roster was good enough to make the playoffs. It's only been 11 games, but it appears the embattled general manager was onto something. Sitting five points below the cut line at 9-10-1 before the coaching change, the Oilers are an impressive 8-2-1 under Hitchcock — ti...

Clues to deciphering treatment centers

The passing of the Affordable Care Act and the implementation of parity caused investors to see an opportunity for financial gain in entering the behavioral healthcare space, particularly addiction treatment. Many were solely seeking to benefit from insurance payments — in some cases adding up to hundreds of thousands of dollars for a short-term residential treatment program. Some companies billed insurance plans for daily urine drug screening in excess of $1,200. Others even purchased insurance...

Homeless lodgers at North Hills parking lot find a secure place to sleep

Cynthia Jerro says her habit is to keep her windows open at night to let in the fresh air. It helps her sleep. But living on the streets in her 1994 Honda Accord has taught the 61-year-old former Lake View Terrace resident to keep her windows tightly shut. Too many men walk up to leer at her, she said, and at times threaten her with sexual violence. That has made it difficult for Jerro, who found herself homeless about two years ago, to get much rest most nights. But on a recent visit to North V...

Cut red tape for rebuilding homes after wildfires

Costly state and local regulations are preventing thousands of property owners from rebuilding the homes they lost in devastating wildfires. That should change. The regulatory impediments faced by homeowners trying to rebuild was recently chronicled by journalist and San Fernando Valley resident David DeVoss in an article for the Weekly Standard. “Even two years may not be enough time to complete the paperwork necessary for rebuilding here,” he wrote.

Without the fight and the loss to the Rockets, the Lakers wouldn’t look the same

EL SEGUNDO — Unlike actual pro fist fights, this one won’t have a rematch. On Thursday the Lakers (17-10) take on the Houston Rockets without Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram, the two players who threw punches in the brawl at Staples Center back on Oct. 20. It’s been almost two months since the Lakers and Rockets last played, and even though Chris Paul is expected to suit up, Rondo’s and Ingram’s absence releases much of the lingering tension – if there even is any. Rondo is scheduled to see a doc...

A tweak in practice on Monday kept Alex Galchenyuk out of the Coyotes' lineup on Tuesday night against the Bruins.  He's officially listed as out day-today with a lower-body injury and when reports are out there saying 'tweak,' you would have to think it's a groin issue of some sort, the most common tweak of them all.  It doesn't sound too serious, but he wasn't on the ice for practice on [Author: Clayton Corley]
