NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Sam Darnold is well aware of all the frustrated fans out there, unhappy with the New York Jets‘ disappointing start and calling for Adam Gase’s job. A victory over the lowly Giants on Sunday might have tempered all the venom — for now. But the Jets quarterback made it clear he supports his coach, and he’s not alone. “He’s great. There’s no flinch in him,” Darnold said of Gase after the 34-27 win. “I think that kind of ripples throughout the team. When you’ve got a head coach that’s just going to continue to work no matter what the circumstances are, no matter what people are saying about him, that’s a really good thing.” Gase is 2-7 in his first season as coach of the Jets, and the team hit rock bottom last week after a loss to previously winless Miami — the team that fired him after last season.

ORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Last month, rapper Lil Xan posted on social media saying he was hospitalized for eating too many hot Cheetos. He called them “one helluva drug.” Similar reports of teens rushed to the hospital – with severe stomach pain – and other alarming symptoms are rising. “Spicy chips are currently a cultural phenomenon,” said Parkland Hospital physician Manisha Raja. “The numbers are quite high, that’s what I have been seeing,” she said.She says eating too many of the spicy treats can irritate the lining of your stomach because of high acidity levels in chips.

NEW YORK (AP) — The CBD craze is leaving the war on drugs a bit dazed and confused. The extract that’s been showing up in everything from candy to coffee is legally derived from hemp plants, which look and smell an awful lot like that other cannabis — marijuana. They’re so similar, police officers and the field tests they use on suspected drugs sometimes can’t tell the difference. READ MORE: Are Hemp-Derived CBD Products Illegal In Minnesota? Case in point, New York City police boasted on social media this week about what seemed like a significant drug bust: 106 pounds (48 kilograms) of funky, green plants that officers thought sure seemed like marijuana. But the Vermont farm that grew the plants and the Brooklyn CBD shop that ordered them insisted they’re actually industrial hemp, and perfectly legal. And, they said, they have paperwork to prove it. Nevertheless, when the shop’s owner brother went to the police station to straighten things … [Read more...] about ‘I Can’t Believe I’m Going Through This’: Drug Busts Highlight Growing Confusion Over Hemp
New York (CNN Business)Walgreens Boots Alliance became the most recent addition to the Dow Jones Industrial Average in June 2018, when it replaced struggling conglomerate General Electric (GE) in America's most famous stock market indicator. Its Dow tenure may be among the shortest. KKR (KKR) has approached Walgreens about taking it over, Bloomberg reported Monday. If Walgreens (WBA) winds up getting bought out, the deal could be the biggest leveraged buyout ever. That news follows a Reuters report last week that said Walgreens was talking to private equity firms about a sale. If such a deal happens, that would mean Walgreens would no longer be publicly traded. In that event, S&P Dow Jones Indices, which selects the stocks for the Dow and S&P 500, would choose a new company to replace Walgreens. S&P Dow Jones Indices was not immediately available for comment about any possible changes to the makeup of the Dow. KKR reportedly wants to buy Walgreens in the largest … [Read more...] about Walgreens could leave the Dow. What should replace it?
To borrow language from Anderson Cooper’s acknowledgment of his preferences from earlier this week, the fact is, R&B singer Frank Ocean is bisexual. On July 4, the rising urban-music star—who earned his stripes guesting on tracks for platinum acts including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Kanye West, and has a much anticipated debut album out this month—took to his Tumblr blog to detail how his first love had been a man. The intimate posting describes how Ocean emotionally struggled with the relationship and how his boyfriend ultimately spurned the singer’s attempts to justify their love. “I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after together. Every day almost,” Ocean wrote. “Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating with the feeling, no choice. It was my first love. It changed my life.” Now that the news has … [Read more...] about Frank Ocean’s Coming Out as Bisexual Changes Homophobic Hip-Hop Genre
