Oilers Can Break the Status Quo This Postseason

With only two winning seasons in the past decade, the Edmonton Oilers of recent memory have built themselves a reputation that could easily be summarized by one word: incompetent. Failed draft picks, less-than-ideal signings, and even worse stomach-turning trades spearheaded by executives who were caught reminiscing about their glory days as the game passed them by (looking at you, Peter Chiarelli, Kevin Lowe, you too, Craig MacTavish) have frustrated fans of the franchise until their state o...

Sparks can’t keep pace with Chicago Sky

A couple of could-be title contenders collided in the WNBA bubble on Tuesday, when the Chicago Sky alternately fended off or ran past the Sparks 96-78 at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Despite primarily playing just seven players, the Sky (2-0) opened up a big early lead early, lost it entirely, rebuilt it to 20 points in the third quarter and then, after the Sparks again got within striking distance, eventually increased the advantage to as much as 24 in the fourth. The Sparks (1-1) kept sc...

Health care workers may be less, not more, susceptible to COVID, study suggests

Health care workers may be less susceptible to COVID-19 infection than people in the communities they serve, according to surprising early data from an ongoing study at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian. Of some 3,000 workers tested in May and June, only 1% had antibodies to the novel coronavirus in their blood, despite the fact that the Newport Beach hospital has cared for hundreds of COVID-19 patients. That 1% is far lower than what has been found in wider communities. Some 4-6% of residents...
