Walsh: Professional Sports Will Be ‘ Very Different ’ Upon Return From Coronavirus Hiatus
BOSTON (CBS) – Mayor Marty Walsh said professional sports will be “very different” when they are able to safely return to venues in Boston following the coronavirus pandemic. Walsh was asked at his Tuesday press briefing about the possibility that the Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox could return to facilities soon after New York, New Jersey, and California recently announced their professional teams could. “As much as I would love to watch our pro teams play right now, we really have to put the health and safety of Boston residents first,” Walsh said. “As I said before, if pro team sports come back, they’ll be ve...

MGH Coronavirus Case Study In Chelsea Will Help Researchers Understand Immunity
CHELSEA (CBS) – At the crossroads of a pandemic and some of the best minds in medicine is Chelsea’s Bellingham Square. Last week, Massachusetts General researchers took to the six-way junction for a coronavirus case study. People passing by, who agreed to have their finger pricked, had their blood tested for antibodies. “We found that 31.5% of those individuals had antibodies to COVID-19 and none of them knew that they had it,” said Dr. John Iafrate, vice chair of pathology at the hospital and the study’s lead investigator. With 1,124 confirmed COVID-19 patients and at least 88 deaths, Chel...

The World ’s Sports Stadiums Are Being Converted Into Hospitals to Fight the Coronavirus Outbreak
Around 10 days ago, Danny Zausner, chief operating officer of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City — home of the U.S. Open — received a call that would be considered inconceivable not that long ago. Local government officials wanted to know whether the sprawling 42-acre tennis complex could house a makeshift hospital for COVID-19 patients. The City’s health care system was already taxed, and the crisis was only worsening. Zausner said officials asked about utilizing Arthur Ashe Stadium, the largest tennis stadium in the world and site of some of the sport’s most memorabl...

NANTUCKET (CBS) – Health officials issued a shelter-in-place order on Nantucket after the first case of coronavirus on the island. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker urged people who have been traveling to their second homes during the pandemic not to do so.

What Age Is Too Young For Contact Sports? Medical Advice Still Unclear
BOSTON (AP) – New guidance on concussions shows there isn’t enough solid evidence to answer some of parents’ most burning questions about contact sports. That includes what age is safest to start playing them. Pediatric experts in sports medicine, neurology and related fields evaluated and rated three decades of sports concussion-related research. They say recent evidence filled in some blanks. Such as: — Teen girls face higher risks than boys for concussions when playing the same sport by the same rules — Hockey body checking bans reduce concussions in players under 13 — Limiting contact in youth tackl...

Despite EEE Fears, Whitman-Hanson High School Sports Schedule Remains Unchanged
WHITMAN (CBS) – Whitman-Hanson High School sports teams were on the fields Thursday, practicing. But some parents are hoping there will be a schedule change in the near future. Mosquitos are more active after dusk, so not many people were worried about Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). But some parents are worried about night games. Fans attending the Friday night football game are urged to wear bug spray. But some in town don’t believe the game should be played at night. “If there was a threat in the area, a definite threat, then they should change it,” one parent said.

Energy Drinks May Have Unintended Health Risks
(CNN) — Energy drinks may promise a boost, but experts are increasingly concerned that their cocktails of ingredients could have unintended health risks. A study published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that caffeinated energy drinks altered the heart’s electrical activity and raised blood pressure. The extent of these electrical changes — which signal the heart’s chambers squeezing and relaxing — is “generally considered mild,” according to study author Sachin Shah, a professor of pharmacy at the Thomas J.

Over the weekend, following President Trump’s continued criticism of athletes choosing to protest by kneeling during the national anthem, NFL players across the country were faced with the question of what to do while “The Star-Spangled Banner” played before the game. More than 200 players chose to sit or kneel. But how did the national anthem become such an integral part of professional sporting events in the U.S.? “The earliest documented performance [of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ at a baseball game] occurred on May 15, 1862, during the opening game played at Union Base Ball and Cricke...

One of the most buzzworthy new features expected to debut on Apple’s long-awaited 10th anniversary iPhone (possibly called the iPhone 8 or iPhone X) is a technology that’s existed in consumer gadgets for years: wireless charging. As appealing as the concept of charging your phone without those annoying cables may sound, the concept’s name is misleading.
