LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The decision by the Los Angeles Rams to temporarily ban Northern California residents from buying tickets to see the San Francisco 49ers play in the NFC title game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood generated plenty of controversy, and now may have backfired. 49er fans cheer during the game between the 49ers and the Rams on Jan. 9, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. (Getty Images) On Sunday, immediately after the Rams defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional round, the team announced on its website that tickets would be restricted to residents of the greater Los Angeles area only. Ticketmaster had a similar message on its website as well. However, the restriction was lifted Monday morning. While the Rams did not provide an explanation for the initial ban, when the Rams faced the 49ers in the final regular season game of the season on Jan. 9 — an overtime thriller which the 49ers won 27-24 to punch their ticket to the postseason – … [Read more...] about Following Rams-49ers Ticket Fiasco, Third-Party Sellers See Massive Numbers

Ten days after the 1906 earthquake, Tony Accardo was born in Chicago’s Little Italy. Accardo was 14 when he dropped out of school. By 16, he was working for Jack “Machine Gun” McGurn, one of Al Capone’s hit men, and in his mid-20s, he was promoted to be Capone’s bodyguard. Two decades later, Accardo had risen to the top of the Chicago Outfit, one of America’s most-feared organized crime families. This Sunday, 116 years after Accardo was born, his great-grandson Nick Bosa — a boss of a very different sort — will take the field for the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. It’s one of the NFL’s strangest connections: a mob capo and a football dynasty. Bosa’s great-grandfather got the nickname “Joe Batters” as a mere teen, allegedly due to a penchant for beating disloyal compatriots with a baseball bat. Accardo eventually met Capone at the race track, where he was betting on ponies. He became Capone's chauffeur-bodyguard — and potentially more. Years later, when … [Read more...] about 49ers star Nick Bosa is the great-grandson of one of history’s most feared mobsters

5 Health care workers in about half the states face a Thursday deadline to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine under a Biden administration mandate that will be rolled out across the rest of the country in the coming weeks. While the requirement is welcomed by some, others fear it will worsen already serious staff shortages if employees quit rather than comply. “We would like to see staff vaccinated. We think that it’s the safest option for residents, which is our biggest concern,” said Marjorie Moore, executive director of VOYCE, a St. Louis County, Missouri, nonprofit that works on behalf of nursing home residents. “But not having staff is also a really big concern, because the neglect that happens as a result of that is severe and very scary.” The mandate affects a wide swath of the health care industry, covering doctors, nurses, technicians, aides and even volunteers at hospitals, nursing homes, home-health agencies and … [Read more...] about Vaccine mandate to kick in for first wave of health workers
To the uninitiated, the neti pot may seem like yet another wellness trend. After all, the teapot-like vessel was popularized in the United States by the celebrity surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz, who called it a “ nose bidet ” on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and has been criticized for promoting unproven supplements and health products . Rinsing warm saltwater through your nose — in one nostril and out the other — as an antidote for a variety of woes like sinus inflammation, congestion and allergies may seem strange and possibly scary; especially if you’ve heard about its links to rare but deadly brain-eating amoeba infections . But according to ear, nose and throat doctors, nasal rinsing, which traces back thousands of years to the Ayurvedic medical traditions of India, is an unusual example of a practice that is at once ancient, trendy and evidence-based. And, it’s safe and inexpensive to boot. It has a “very, very high level of evidence, randomized controlled trial evidence, that … [Read more...] about Do Neti Pots Really Work?
