There’s no better way to endear yourself to Broncos Country than by beating a division rival. Rookie quarterback Drew Lock did just that in his first NFL start, leading Denver to a 23-20 win over the visiting Chargers. He got off to a roaring start, completing two touchdown passes to Courtland Sutton in the first quarter. While his final line isn’t something to write home about — 18 of 28 for 134 yards — he tallied the most important stat: a “W.” Here’s what you may have missed from Sunday’s win: Broncos Analysis: Brandon McManus’ field goal at the buzzer lifts Denver past Chargers in Drew Lock’s debut, Ryan O’Halloran writes.

What is it like to have The L Word back? The answer is: very welcome, though with reservations. But at least television’s only all-lesbian drama is returned to bright, familiarly glossy life, its old-meets-new group of characters looking way more diverse than before. (Warning: light spoilers follow.) On Sunday night, Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q begins, 10 years after The L Word went off the air. Its original showrunner Ilene Chaiken has passed the baton to playwright-turned-screenwriter Marja-Lewis Ryan, who has had many tough decisions to make (one: get rid of that god-awful Betty theme song). While the original show had many fans, it also had just as many critics—some, like this reviewer, serving as both. Like the original, Generation Q centers on a group of friends—in this case, returning leads Bette (Jennifer Beals), Alice (Leisha Hailey), and Shane (Katherine Moennig) as well as a younger, queerer cast of newcomers, namely androgynous fuckboi … [Read more...] about It’s Great ‘The L Word’ Is Back. But What Does ‘Generation Q’ Want to Say?
A month after the California Department of Public Health issued a statewide standing order for naloxone, the emergency antidote for opioid overdoses, the agency has authorized 27 organizations across the state — mostly pharmacies and addiction treatment centers — to distribute and administer the medication without a prescription. The order was issued by agency director Dr. Karen Smith on June 8. Previously, organizations needed a prescription from an individual physician in order to distribute naloxone. Smith’s order functions as a standing prescription for organizations that have a hard time finding such a doctor — a problem in small and rural communities where physician shortages are common, and addiction medicine is outside the purview of many doctors’ practices. “It’s one step in our multifaceted approach to increasing ready access to naloxone,” Smith said in an interview last month about the order. Among those newly authorized to … [Read more...] about More California pharmacies to distribute opioid overdose drug
