Whicker: Riviera’s ill winds blow the winner’s check out of Thomas’ hands

PACIFIC PALISADES — A golf ball weighs 1.62 ounces. It can still buckle a golfer’s knees. They were writing Justin Thomas’ name on the big check Sunday morning at the Genesis Open. He was at 18-under-par and leading by five shots. Riviera’s soggy grounds and the endless days and the bone-piercing chill of the evening had not touched him all week. Then Thomas watched a birdie putt on 17 give a head-fake toward the cup at Riviera and then turn away. Thomas pointed agonizingly to his right, and the...

A conspiracy of dunces

Just before Christmas, a story broke that seemed too strange — and too hypocritical — to be true. As Democratic Party elders were trying to stifle loutish impeachment threats by fanatical House freshmen, it was revealed that Democratic operatives had used cyber fraud to manipulate the 2017 Alabama Senate race. It’s hard to know precisely who masterminded the plot because the perpetrators have lawyered up and are pointing fingers at one another. But according to the New York Times and subsequent ...

America’s most stunning jerks are flocking to your national parks. Who are they?

Like an unlocked museum, national parks have been left largely defenseless during the most recent government shutdown, allowing scoundrels and cheats to tramp over unstaffed lands. While much of the federal government is funded during the longest-ever shutdown, the national parks aren't. Yet in 2018, the Trump administration made the unusual — and possibly illegal — decision to keep many of the nation's crown jewels operating with skeleton crews. Destruction, mounds of litter, and vand...

Like an unlocked museum, national parks have been left largely defenseless during the most recent government shutdown, allowing scoundrels and cheats to tramp over unstaffed lands. While much of the federal government is funded during the longest-ever shutdown, the national parks aren't.

Obesity surgery leads to emergence of new microbial strains in the human fecal community

Using a unique bioinformatics technique developed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, UAB researchers have detected the emergence of new strains of microbes in the human fecal microbiota after obesity surgery. These new strains emerged after surgical disruption of the stomach and upper small intestine. In contrast, the researchers found that strains of the human gut fecal microbiota resembled those found pre-surgery following surgery in the colon.

Veteran suicide rates still climbing, but new national program may reverse tide

This nation’s shame is invisible to most, yet it’s everywhere this holiday season. In lonely motel rooms, homes seemingly filled with Christmas spirit and low-rent apartments, America’s veterans take their lives in ever-higher numbers. Instead of a decline in this epidemic, a review of Department of Defense, as well as U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, reports finds self-inflicted deaths for young veterans are climbing. Consider that suicides by active-duty personnel shot up from 57 deaths la...
