Senior Living: Seniors at the highest risk for atrial fibrillation, which can lead to stroke

By Serge Tobias, M.D. Contributing writer Adults 65 years of age and older are at the highest risk for developing atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib. The American Heart Association has found that about 9% of adults older than 65 have AFib. Atrial fibrillation is characterized by a fast, irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia. Normally, the heart contracts in a regular rhythm, but with AFib, the upper chambers of the heart beat irregularly. The irregularity makes it difficult for the heart to pu...

New York Islanders With 100-Point Seasons

The New York Islanders are a storied franchise, even if most the significant parts of their story are in the late 1970s and early ’80s. Their 19-straight playoff series wins will likely never be surpassed and the cast of players from that era remains at the center of the Islanders’ universe and the record books. That includes players with 100-point seasons, with two exceptions in the late ’80s or early ’90s. The Dynasty Era The high-flying 1980s provided the perfect time period for the ...

Blackhawks May Need an Oil Change: Trade Deadline Match?

Could the Chicago Blackhawks look to Oil Town as a possible trading partner at the trade deadline? As of right now, the Blackhawks are on the outside looking in on the final wild card spot in the Western Conference. Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman says that he is still undecided on whether he wants to be a buyer or seller at the trade deadline, but if the Hawks continue to trend downward, then something has to give, and he might have to start selling. (from ‘Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman yet ...

Jets Can’t Deal Connor or Ehlers to Fill Defensive Holes

Kyle Connor trade rumours began last week, and this isn’t the first time the media rumoured the Winnipeg Jets trading a star forward.  The NHL silly season is upon us.

Klopp: “The Gap Is So Insane”

Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged the distance between Liverpool and the rest of the league by saying what most fans think: It’s “insane” how much better the Reds are. The Reds picked up a typically assured three points at the weekend, winning with a combination of solid defensive work and having enough attacking quality to take a chance. It might have been a little closer than other games this season, but a win-to-nil has been a familiar scoreline when it comes to the Reds over the last few months...

Senators’ DeMelo Should Be Kept

Rebuilding NHL teams often find themselves in a position where flipping pending free agents is the best course of action, but that rule isn’t universal and doesn’t have to be. Dylan DeMelo is an unrestricted free agent on July 1, as he wraps up his 2 year, $1.8 million contract, and the Senators should do everything they can to keep him in Ottawa. DeMelo was acquired as somewhat of a throw-in in the Erik Karlsson trade, but has carved a niche in a respectable role for the team. Dylan ...

A tenant’s best friend: Options in a commercial lease

By definition – an option is a right contained within a commercial lease that allows you to do something as the occupant. Generally, an option enables you to extend the lease term, cancel it, or buy the building. Simple! Oh, I wish that were the case. In practice, option language and exercise can be much more complex. Let’s explore a few of the tastier ones, shall we? Options are personal. If your company has successfully negotiated an option with the owner of your business address, the option i...

Jose Mourinho played down talk of a place in next season’s Champions League after Son Heung-min’s dramatic 94th-minute winner against Aston Villa, although the Spurs manager accepted Manchester City’s troubles may have opened a door. Opposite number Dean Smith was left to bemoan Martin Atkinson’s decision to award Spurs a penalty on the stroke of half time after VAR’s intervention.

Devils Need to Keep Palmieri But Trade Vatanen

While this hockey enthusiast originally proposed that the New Jersey Devils were better off trading forward Kyle Palmieri this season, times have changed at the Prudential Center for Jersey’s team.

Blue Jackets Quickly Becoming Goaltending Factory

Prediction: Ice Will Be Out By Easter This Year

I hadn't done any blogging so far this month, so I thought I would throw out my first ice out prediction of the year.  I think the chances of ice still being on the Platte/Sullivan area lakes on Easter Sunday, April 12th 2020 is looking pretty slim to me at this point.  In early March I will give my official ice out date guess.  Right now, I'm thinking the chances of a March ice out date aren't very good either.Here is the forecast for the rest of February:   [Author: [email protected] (Bass...
