Why The Rosen/Bradford Duo Will Work For The Cardinals

May 4th, 2018

  (Josh Rosen at Cardinal’s Introduction. Photo Matthew Emmons-USA Today) For the first time ever, four quarterbacks were chosen in the top 10 of this years NFL Draft, with the fourth being Josh Rosen from UCLA. The Cardinals traded up from the 15th pick to the 10th in order to snag Rosen. This move was made with the hope that he will be the long-term solution for a quarterback. After years of picking up veteran QBs; including Kurt Warner, Carson Palmer, and most recently Sam Bradford, the Cardinals are hoping they finally have the franchise QB to get them that coveted Lombardi trophy,... Read More

The Hidden Gem of Phoenix Metro Sports

April 20th, 2018

Throughout the valley, you’ll find several large professional stadiums and arenas— from the homes of the Cardinals and Coyotes in Glendale to the Suns and Diamondbacks in Downtown Phoenix. In the heart of Tempe, we have Sun Devil Stadium with a capacity of 50,000 and Wells Fargo Arena at roughly 14,000— the homes to ASU football and basketball respectively. However, there is one stadium that may not seem so familiar. About 2 miles away from Downtown Tempe, tucked in the corner of the 101 and the 202 you’ll find the 6,200 seat home of Phoenix Rising FC, the Phoenix Rising FC Soccer... Read More

Japan Will Soon Have A Drug To Combat The Flu

April 2nd, 2018

Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Japanese officials approved the single-dose drug, known as Xofluza, for use in that country. In a clinical trial, Japanese and American patients who took the drug when they had the flu saw the virus wiped out, on average, in 24 hours.  The drug will be available in Japan in time for next year’s flu season, but not in the U.S. until 2019. Currently Tamiflu is used widely for shortening the duration of the flu virus in America.  Xofluza works differently by inhibiting an enzyme the flu virus needs to replicate. The drug can work in 24 hours because... Read More

Three Reasons Why Life Expectancy Has Declined in the U.S.

April 2nd, 2018

As one of the richest nation’s in the world, we should have a very high life expectancy.  For the second year in a row, however, life expectancy in the U.S. has fallen.  A study released last week in the British Medical Journal details the United States’ decline from the world leader in life expectancy rates, in the 1960s, to now 1.5 years below the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) average. The National Research Council and Institute of Medicine set out to study why America’s new life expectancy, 78.7 years, falls so far below the OECD average of 80.3. The... Read More

Low Fat vs. Low Carb – Which Diet Works?

April 2nd, 2018

It’s almost spring and many Americans start to think about dumping the winter plump in preparation for summer.  With that in mind, consider some recent information comparing dieting techniques and their success at helping you lose a few. Some dieters firmly believe in avoiding fat and while others espouse avoiding carbs. Does it matter? In a recent study at Stanford University researchers put more than 600 overweight adults on either a healthy low-fat or low-carb diet. It turns out, participants had similar levels of weight loss success on each plan. That’s right!  Both diets were successful. The... Read More

The Ultimate Beer and Pretzels Game

April 2nd, 2018

Has there been any movie genre more maligned recently than the studio comedy? Back in the day, movies with Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and others were guaranteed to open to enormous business. They would stick around for quite a while and, if you didn’t like the looks of a particular one, no big deal. Another comedy would open soon. Things changed, and there’s a ruthlessly unfunny reason for that. Major studios don’t think regionally or nationally any longer, they think globally. Movie attendance in America has been steadily dropping, but attendance is huge elsewhere. The most profitable... Read More

Cell Theory

April 2nd, 2018

How do you solve a problem like Annihilation? Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very good and very challenging film, and one that everyone should see as quickly as possible. Before we get into the specifics, let’s talk about the tragedy of its release, and why it bodes ill for intelligent art. Paramount Pictures ponied up $55 million to adapt the first book in Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy. Alex Garland, the director of the superb Ex Machina, was hired to write the screenplay and direct. An impressive team of actors was hired. Things were a go. Upon the film’s completion, as always... Read More
