Tennessee Titans fall to New York Jets 7-3 in Preseason Opener

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans offense looked slugish at best Saturday night in their 7-3 loss to the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. The offense as a whole had problems stopping the blitz. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was sacked hard by Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams. Mariota got right up and went on like nothing happened.

The New York Jets took their opening drive 78 yards for a touchdown. Quarterback Josh McCown hit wide receiver Charone Peake with a 4 yard pass for the score. The Tennessee defense stiffened up after this and did not allow the Jets another point.

Less than half of stroke patients nationwide are prescribed recommended cholesterol-lowering medication

 

Journal of the American Heart Association Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Nationwide, less than half of stroke patients discharged from the hospital received a prescription for cholesterol-lowering medications called statins, and the likelihood of a prescription varied by patients’ geographic location, sex, age and race, according to new research in Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

For patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attacks (“mini-stroke”), the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association recommends statin therapy to reduce the risk of recurrent stroke and other cardiovascular events.

Many people leaving the hospital after a stroke are not getting prescriptions for statins, even though research shows the medication can reduce the recurrence of stroke. (American Heart Association)

NASA reports TRAPPIST-1 is nearly twice as Old as our Solar System

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – If we want to know more about whether life could survive on a planet outside our solar system, it’s important to know the age of its star. Young stars have frequent releases of high-energy radiation called flares that can zap their planets’ surfaces.

If the planets are newly formed, their orbits may also be unstable. On the other hand, planets orbiting older stars have survived the spate of youthful flares, but have also been exposed to the ravages of stellar radiation for a longer period of time.
