Doris Tyler lay on the examining table as the doctor stuck a tube into her belly. The doctor pulled back a plunger, and the syringe quickly filled with yellow blobs tinged with pink. “Look at that beautiful fat coming out. Liquid gold!” one of the clinic’s staff exclaimed in a video of the procedure provided to The Washington Post. Hidden in that fat were stem cells with the amazing power to heal, the Stem Cell Center of Georgia had told Tyler. The clinic is one of hundreds that have popped up, many offering treatments for conditions from Parkinson’s disease to autism to multiple sclerosis. Federal regulators have not approved any of their treatments, and critics call such clinics modern-day snake-oil salesmen. But on that day in 2016, Tyler trusted the clinic to extract stem cells from her fat and inject them into her eyes, where she was told they could halt or even cure the macular degeneration threatening her sight. Five days after the injections, the clinic … [Read more...] about Stem-cell clinics spread fast but therapies mostly unproved

Odds of Thunder in mid-February? Cooler Next Week Like shorter, easier winters. Not every winter, but most. Erratic snows, more midwinter rain and ice events. Even thunder and lightning, when you least expect it. Friday's cracks of thunder were unusual. Pete Boulay, at the Minnesota State Climate Office, told me it was the first February thunder since Feb. 25, 2000. It happens about once a decade, but earlier springs could make for a confusing March. Tournament snows or tornadoes? We dry out today with less wind, peeks of sun and low 40s. The pattern favors big storms detouring across the Deep South, turning up the East Coast. Nothing but a few ornamental flurries here Tuesday. Weather forecasters like it when (scores) of models agree. I think that happened once. NOAA's GFS predicts a quick shot of arctic air next Friday; maybe one night below zero. But the ECMWF (European) shows a brief, glancing blow of chilly air, with a shot at 50F a week from tomorrow. Winter is fading fast. … [Read more...] about Typical weather for mid-March — signs of a fast-forward spring?

In the Cohan years, for the most part, the regular season for the Golden State Warriors was the quest to tank for the highest draft pick and hope that in July that pick would furnish the organization with a chance achieve NBA Summer League glory…and nothing more. The Warriors in their futility started “the process” long before Sam Hinkie gave it a name. Only they didn’t do it by design and they weren’t all in. Just 75%. Enough to ensure perpetual mediocrity. In those years the regular season was fun at the start—a time when hope springs eternal—but then as the games were played hope turned to disappointment which then turned to apathy. By the All Star break fans checked out. In the early Lacob years, the Warriors started a slow build with some good young talent in the Splash Brothers. In those years, the regular season was a … [Read more...] about Popcorn and a Movie: Warriors 133, Magic 112
