Team Report – Houston Texans – Yahoo Sports

Clowney said he is making progress during his rehab. But the former South Carolina star wouldn’t definitively say whether he’ll be ready for the start of training camp. He also vaguely addressed the origin of his injury, which he said did not occur before the May draft. Clowney said the Texans instructed him to quickly deal with the issue rather than let the injury linger. “When I got here,” Clowney said. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/team-report-houston-texans-161617938–nfl.html

The match was the season opener for Horn Lake. The two squads battled back and forth in set one before Lewisburg held on for the first set victory. Set two also was contested closely with Lewisburg holding a 10-9 lead early in the set. The Lady Patriots won two of the next three points for a 12-10 edge, but Horn Lake brought the set back to 15-14 Lewisburg. The Lady Pats would win 10 of the final 15 points for a 25-19 win and a 2-0 lead in the match. Lewisburg came out roaring in the third set, winning the first five points before Horn Lake coach Janna Thompson would call a timeout. The Lady Patriots continued to hold off Horn Lake before Alexyse Thomas block at the net gave Horn Lake the serve, trailing 16-10. The block seemed to spur the Lady Eagles, who then rallied to take the lead at 20-18 after a rally ball ended in the net. Lewisburg would come back with a service ace from Hannah Waddell to tie the set at 20-20 and win the last five points to finish off the match. First year Lewisburg coach Gary Hentz said he saw improvement in his team from a 3-0 loss to open the season earlier in the week at home against DeSoto Central. Tuesday was not what we were hoping for, losing in three sets, although they (DeSoto Central) are really good, one of the best teams in the state, Hentz said. This was a really comforting turnaround to take it 3-0 going into the weekend, going to Jackson (Set-It-Off Tournament) and playing some really good teams. Thompson was proud of the way her team competed against Lewisburg, considered a strong Class 5-A club. I think they made a little noise tonight, Thompson said. So just the fact that were competing and hopefully going to get better, Im excited.

“We must make sure that this kind of terrible accident never happens again, by sticking to the proper method of building.” “Symbolically, to have a newer building go down in the heart of the city is quite bad indeed,” said Geoffrey See, managing director of the Singapore-based nonprofit Choson Exchange, which conducts training on economic policy, entrepreneurship and law in North Korea. “This kind of news would have gotten around pretty quickly,” he said. “Not acknowledging it would harm the government’s credibility among the most important political constituency, which is middle-class Pyongyangers.” View gallery In this photo taken on Thursday, July 31, 2014, North Koreans paint the facade of their apartment bu Calvin Chua, a London-based architect and urban development specialist who has worked with the North Koreans, said the government also was worried about keeping the trust of foreign investors, largely from China. Foreign investment has become much more prominent in the North’s economy since the fall of the Soviet Union and the loss of aid from socialist allies that followed. http://news.yahoo.com/building-fail-sheds-light-n-korean-priorities-073525139.html

Police went to the address, arrested Curylo and charged him with second-degree larceny, offering home repair without a license, no notice of cancellation, failure to provide notice of cancellation rights and failure to provide oral cancellation rights.

In March, his home improvement license was revoked, and he was ordered to pay about $30,000 to five former customers and $5,750 in civil penalties, according to a release from the Department of Consumer Protection. Curylo, who is free on $5,000 bond, has been reported to police numerous times for allegedly not completing driveway work while doing business as Hot Top Paving of New Britain.

Virtual Reality Helps Treat Ptsd In Soldiers | Fox News

ptsd_soldier_640.jpg

The first versions of the virtual-reality program , called “Virtual Iraq” and “Virtual Afghanistan,” were adapted from the first-person video game “Full Spectrum Warrior,” which was released for Xbox in 2004. The program featured a wide range of combat situations, and allowed the user to tweak the time of day, the weather conditions and the wound levels of characters in the game. In addition, medical experts could insert “trigger stimuli” to mimic the original traumatic experience. Now, the researchers have developed a new virtual-reality program, called “Bravemind,” which was created using feedback from the first version and includes an expanded set of features.Tests of this early version have been positive, Rizzo said. A study funded by the Office of Naval Research used a standard exposure-therapy approach, and involved 20 military members (19 men and 1 woman) who had spent an average of eight years in active service. http://www.foxnews.com/science/2014/08/11/virtual-reality-tech-helps-treat-ptsd-in-soldiers/

Cespedes’ first homer for Red Sox is game-winner – Yahoo Sports

Freese walked on the pitch but Red Sox catcher Dan Butler threw the ball into center field, allowing Kendrick to move to third with no outs. However, De La Rosa got Navarro to fly out, then struck out Iannetta before inducing a pop out from left fielder Collin Cowgill to defuse the threat. For Farrell, De La Rosa’s composure during those early predicaments proved pivotal. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/red-sox-3-angels-1-225449838–mlb.html
