Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s baseball team, for the second straight game, received a stellar pitching performance. Saturday, it was starting pitcher Alex Robles‘ turn as he threw a three-hit shutout in a 4-0 Ohio Valley Conference victory against Jacksonville State at Raymond C. Hand Park.
Robles (2-2) set the tone right from the opening pitch, retiring the first six batters he faced before allowing a leadoff single in the third inning. He would see a batter reach on an error in the fourth before allowing another single in the fifth. However, none of those three runners would reach second base.

American Heart Association Meeting Report
Portland, OR – Playing the popular smartphone game Pokémon Go may increase people’s daily steps, especially among young adults with low physical activity levels or those who are overweight or obese, according to research presented at the American Heart Association’s Epidemiology and Prevention / Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health 2017 Scientific Sessions.
In Pokémon Go, a location-based augmented reality game, players move around a physical location capturing animated creatures on smartphones and other mobile devices. Pokémon Go has generated a great deal of interest since it was released in July 2016, but few studies have examined whether playing the game can increase an individual’s level of physical activity.

Pasadena, CA – A regional dust storm currently swelling on Mars follows unusually closely on one that blossomed less than two weeks earlier and is now dissipating, as seen in daily global weather monitoring by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Images from the orbiter’s wide-angle Mars Color Imager (MARCI) show each storm growing in the Acidalia area of northern Mars, then blowing southward and exploding to sizes bigger than the United States after reaching the southern hemisphere.
