Every 10 additional primary care physicians per 100,000 people in the United States was associated with a 51.5-day increase in life expectancy during the decade from 2005 to 2015, according to a study led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School.

Bennie Boatwright sets USC men’s basketball record for 3s in win over Cal

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Bennie Boatwright couldn’t understand why USC coach Andy Enfield was yelling for him to shoot a 3-pointer, even though Boatwright had a defender in his face. The next time down the court Boatwright didn’t wait for his coach to say anything and launched himself into the Trojans record books and a spot in Pac-12 history as well. Boatwright scored 36 points and set a USC school record with 10 3-pointers in an 89-66 win over California on Saturday night. In doing so, Boatwrig...

USC men’s basketball team coming up short in close games

USC’s basketball season took another hit this week. When the Trojans stumbled 79-76 at Stanford on Wednesday, they suffered their third consecutive loss and fell among the logjam of .500 teams sitting in the middle of the Pac-12 Conference standings. It was only two weeks ago the Trojans, following a difficult nonconference stretch and splitting their first four conference games, had moved into second place in the Pac-12, sitting within range of first-place Washington. Amid their latest trying s...

UCLA men’s basketball still eyeing first-round bye in crowded Pac-12

LOS ANGELES — UCLA barely survived against the last-place team in the conference, needing overtime to defeat Cal, which hasn’t won a game since before Christmas. But at the final horn, worry evaporated into relief, because at this point, any win will do for the Bruins. After its comeback victory Wednesday that ended its three-game drought, UCLA rose into a four-team tie for sixth place in the Pac-12. Saturday’s opponent Stanford is one of the teams stuck in the six-loss log jam. With eight teams...

With climate change, sunny day flooding incur losses too

With greater and greater frequency, the parking lot in the small historic port of Annapolis near Washington is flooded even on sunny days: water washes in, pushed by the force of ever higher tides. Researchers at Stanford University are using a novel method to estimate the cost, published Friday in the journal Science Advances, in hopes of raising awareness of the more mundane, everyday consequences of a warming climate. "So often we think of climate change and sea level rise as these huge ide...

It’s Time To Be Skeptical About The Lean Startup. Here’s Why:

In 1997 Clayton Christensen published The Innovator’s Dilemma and it sparked a revolution. It seemed that for years all anyone could talk about was disruptive innovation. That was until Henry Chesbrough published Open Innovation in 2003 and that got hot. Then Stanford launched its d.school and design thinking was where it was at. Yet go ...

Heart patients who fail to take statins three times more likely to die within a year, Stanford study finds

Heart disease patients who fail to take their statins correctly are three times more likely to die within a year, a major study has found. Around seven million people in Britain suffer from cardiovascular disease and the condition causes one quarter of all deaths each year. Evidence shows that statins can lower cholesterol and prevent the build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries which trigger heart attacks and strokes. Yet although millions of Britons are prescribed statins, ongoing fears over...

USC freshman Kevin Porter Jr. looking to regain footing after injuries, suspension

LOS ANGELES — A wry smile crept across USC basketball coach Andy Enfield’s face Tuesday when he took a question about Kevin Porter Jr., the talented, but enigmatic freshman guard for the Trojans. “He’s playing in games,” Enfield said, “so everything is going smoothly.” Six games have passed since Porter returned from a team-issued suspension that stemmed from unspecified conduct issues. Of course, it hasn’t really been a smooth stretch. Porter totaled 14 points in his first game back against Ari...

Jim Steyer runs the powerful nonprofit Common Sense Media; now he’s using his influence to battle big tech

California Governor Gavin Newsom earlier today proposed a so-called digital dividend that would let consumers share in the profits generated by California-based tech companies that have been “collecting, curating and monetizing” their users’ personal data. Newsom added that he has asked his administration to develop a proposal for a “new data dividend for Californians, because we recognize that data has value, and it belongs to you.” It’s an idea that tech companies will surely argue against if ...

The founding story of Patreon

When Conte has a vision for something he wants to create, he becomes obsessive. In fact, he maxed out his credit cards to see his vision through on this one. But this is the moment.
