Oleksiak the Unlikely Hero As Stars Even Series

Despite looking lethargic for most of Game 1, the Dallas Stars turned the tables and looked like a top-tier playoff team (at times) in Game 2 of their opening-round series against the Calgary Flames, and it was just enough to come away with a wild 5-4 win to even the series. The Stars raced out to a 4-2 lead heading into the third period and maintained it until things got hairy with 7:39 left in regulation. Dallas’ special teams were not so special during those final eight minutes – surrender...

VP candidate Kamala Harris left an ‘imprint’ while visiting Clippers, Doc Rivers says

Asked Wednesday what he thought about Joe Biden’s pick for running mate, Doc Rivers gushed, “It’s just beautiful.” On Tuesday, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee answered the most highly anticipated question of his campaign when he announced that California Sen. Kamala Harris will join him on the ticket.

Thoughts on Balancing Your Professional Work and Your Activism

“Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America.” — the late Rep. John Lewis Full disclosure: I’m an activist for social and racial justice. I have marched the streets of Washington, D.C., Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, where I now live, and contributed my professional skills to local chapters of Indivisible and Black Lives Matter.

Super Bowl Loss ‘Ingrained’ In 49ers Brains

SANTA CLARA (AP) — Nick Bosa said he hasn’t been able to watch the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl even once. Jimmie Ward needed to wait more than a month to pop in that tape and has watched it maybe 20 times. The Super Bowl loss that came after San Francisco blew a 10-point fourth-quarter lead over the Kansas City Chiefs still hovers over the 49ers six months later as they begin preparations for what they hope will be a title run this time. “We all have that ingrained in our brain,” defensive ...

The Calgary Flames beat the Dallas Stars by a score of 3-2 last night in Game 1 of their first-round series of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. But, as far as surprises go, that’s not the biggest one. It’s fair to say that – so far – the Flames have been one of the surprise teams of the 2020 postseason. Hockey fans know the NHL playoffs can bring on surprises, but these Calgary Flames having three of them is quite an accomplishment. Related: Flames News & Rumors: Talbot, Monahan, Tkachuk & More...

Jubilation, anguish as race for NBA’s Western 8th seed gets as close as ever

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — He had just finished scoring 61 points in a needed win for his Trail Blazers. But Damian Lillard wasn’t done.

The country's once obscure cold-storage property sector is beginning to garner attention from investors who see big demand for temperature-controlled spaces.  The coronavirus pandemic prompted millions of Americans to shop for groceries online, creating demand for a new category of cold warehouses close to population centers. Developers are building cold storage spaces on speculation, a leap of faith many have been wary to take in the past given the high costs of developing the projects.  To d...

VenoStent has a new technology to improve outcomes for dialysis patients

Caring for these patients can cost the Medicare and Medicaid Services system roughly $2 billion per year — and Bouré and Lucks believed that they’d come...

Original Content podcast: ‘The Umbrella Academy’ returns for a messy-but-delightful second season

The first season of “The Umbrella Academy” had its flaws, but empathetic portrayals of its seven superhero siblings (all adults bearing the emotional scars of an upbringing under their strict adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves) more than made up for its meandering plot. In season two, which recently launched on Netflix, the Umbrella Academy has been transported to Dallas in the early 1960s, where the Hargreeves must once again try to repair their familial bonds while also averting a nuclear ...
