90 minsminute by minute

64 minsminute by minute

But the Hammers, who had last played on Boxing Day, looked like they had enjoyed a heavy New Year in a sluggish opening period.

That’s al from us this evening, we hope you enjoyed the game!

There will be a minimum of four minutes added time played here.

But in injury-time, Arnautovic crossed from the left and Carroll slotted home from a tight angle on the far post. It is the first time West Ham have come from behind to win at the Olympic Stadium.

The Argentine then called the former England keeper into action again with another shot following more tango-style footwork worthy of a better stage.

GOOOAAALLL WEST HAM EQUALISE! Carroll with a towering header to make it 1-1 at the London Stadium. Aaron Cresswell with a fantastic cross into the box from the left-wing, Carroll then rose above Evans and powered his header into the bottom corner of the net, with Foster standing no chance of saving that.

STAT: Only Joey Barton with five, has assisted more Premier League goals for Andy Carroll than Aaron Cresswell, his cross for Carroll’s goal tonight was the fourth assist provided for the striker.

White House Says Secret Rounds Of Golf Make Donald Trump A Better President – HuffPost

Yet the White House is rarely willing to tell the press when this relationship-building is happening. Officials often don’t release details about whether Trump is golfing, and with whom, and reporters have a tough time confirming what he’s doing.

Trump has admitted that he loves golf, but insisted there was a distinction between his golf and Obama’s golf. 

Donald Trump loves golf. He has spent at least 91 days of his presidency at golf courses and has been confirmed golfing at least 35 times. Presumably, he has golfed more times, but the White House is often tight-lipped at what in the world the president is doing at these golf courses. 

“@gretawire: PresObama is not busy talking to Congress about Syria..he is playing golf …go figure”

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!

@BarackObama played golf yesterday. Now he heads to a 10 day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. Nice work ethic.

“I think it would certainly be developing deeper and better relationships with members of Congress in which those relationships have helped push forward the president’s agenda ― specifically when it comes to helping get the tax reform and tax cuts passed,” Sanders said, adding, “He has played golf with a number of senators and used that time certainly to accomplish that.”

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump’s time on the links when asked by reporter Hunter Walker what his biggest accomplishment there has been. 

Colin reacts to the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs defeating the No. 2 Sooners: ‘Oklahoma gave it away last night!’ –

Georgia played with SEC confidence. Georgia played like a massive underdog. Georgia played like they had nothing to lose. Congratulations to Georgia. Now you’re going to get beat by Alabama. And you’re going to get beat badly by Alabama. But congratulations. Congratulations on playing and coaching with confidence. Go look at the box score last night. First downs– edge Oklahoma. Third down efficiency– huge edge Oklahoma. Yards– Oklahoma. Yards-per-pass– Oklahoma. Penalties– Oklahoma had one all night. Time-of-possession. Come on. Oklahoma had it and gave it away.

For all the brashness of Oklahoma, for all the brashness of their history, for all the brashness of Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma coach scared last night. You’ve got the best football player. They give awards out. It’s called the Heisman. . Your guy wins. He’s Mr. 500-yards a game. You had 500-yards. It’s overtime. It’s the biggest stage, and you call a timeout and talk yourself out of going for it? What are you doing? What are you doing?

What are you doing? You’re Oklahoma! It’s Baker Mayfield! It’s fourth and one! You’ve got the best O-line maybe in the country outside of Alabama. You may have the best O-line in the country! Forth-and-one! 583-yards a game! 300 yards in the first half– It’s overtime, even Georgia’s great athletes are tired. And you decided on a field goal to tie it? That’s coaching scared!

So here are the Oklahoma Sooners last night. Congrats to Georgia– But Oklahoma lost that game. Oklahoma averaged 45-points a game this year. Oklahoma averaged 583-yards a game. And I know what you’re saying, Colin, come on, it’s the Big 12. They had 300 against Georgia in the first half. They moved at will. At will. You know the score was at half, right? They had over 30.

Here’s Oklahoma with a chance for a tired defense. Both defenses were tired– the tackling was awful last night. And Oklahoma has got to call a timeout. What should we do? What should you do? It’s fourth-and-1– 500-some yards, Baker Mayfield you go for it. You go for it! Instead, Oklahoma lost their confidence. I’m not sure– let’s call a time out– what should we do? OK let’s settle for a tie and go to the next overtime.

Oklahoma– all the confidence in the world. But let’s go to the first overtime. Georgia gets the ball first– field goal. Oklahoma’s ball. Oklahoma is driving up and down the field. Almost 600-yards offense yesterday. It’s fourth-and-one with Baker Mayfield. The best college quarterback right? That’s what you tell me.

And I know what you’re saying Georgia fans, give us credit. I’m not visa. I’m not MasterCard. I’m not in the credit business. I’m in the honesty business. Oklahoma gave that football game away last night. Congrats to Georgia and their coaches for playing their butt off and playing with confidence. And playing like a huge underdog even though they weren’t. Enjoy it for a week. You’re going to be beaten badly by Alabama who does not lose to quarterbacks who don’t run. Not overly athletic who don’t really throw the ball deep down the field much. It’s going to be ugly.

Then, how about the other moment for Oklahoma last night coaching scared? Before half, leading 31-14, you just scored a touchdown, you have all the momentum in the world. There are six seconds left in half, you squib a kick. You have not, Oklahoma, surrendered a kickoff touchdown return in six years. Not once, in six years. You didn’t have the confidence to just kick it down the field and go cover Georgia. How many kickoff returns for a touchdown does Georgia have in the last three years? Certainly not many against teams like Oklahoma. But Georgia recovered it, made a few yards, kicked a field goal, and stole all the momentum going into half.

Forget the fact– forget this– that Oklahoma’s defense was atrocious last night. So you are willing to go into a second overtime with the inferior defense. That’s coaching scared! It’s not like you had the Steelers 1975 defense. We’ll just keep playing– we’ll take a chance with our defense. Your defense was awful. You couldn’t stop the run all night. And now it’s four hours into a game– your players are tired. I mean, Georgia’s were tired, but they had more depth. Yours were tired, you had no depth. And you decide to kick a field goal? With Baker Mayfield? On a fourth-and-that?

California Starts Recreational Pot Sales, Clients Jam Stores –

California’s state and local governments still have a lot of work ahead to get the massive industry running that is projected to bring in $1 billion annually in tax revenue within several years.

In Orange County, shops in Santa Ana received approval over the weekend to open and a steady flow showed up at ShowGrow.

“We’re looking at … hundreds of licensed cultivators and manufacturers coming out of an environment where we literally had thousands of people who were cultivating and manufacturing,” Boldwyn said. “So the red tape is a bit of a bottleneck in the supply chain.”

With sales starting around California, the most populous U.S. state joined a growing list of others, and the nation’s capital, where so-called recreational marijuana is permitted even though the federal government continues to classify pot as a controlled substance, like heroin and LSD.

Los Angeles officials said they will not begin accepting license applications until Wednesday and it might take weeks before any licenses are issued. That has led to widespread concern that long-established businesses would have to shut down in the interim.

Attorneys advising a group of city dispensaries have concluded those businesses can legally sell medicinal marijuana as “collectives,” until they obtain local and state licenses under the new system, said Jerred Kiloh of the United Cannabis Business Association, an industry group.

Investigation continues into death of Ogdensburg mental health patient –

The name of the patient has not been made public. Ogdensburg police said in a statement that the agency was waiting on notification of the next of kin before releasing a name.

No names will be provided until the victim’s family is notified, according to police.

In a press statement, Ogdensburg police confirmed that one patient was pronounced dead several hours after reportedly becoming involved in an altercation with another patient in the early morning hours of Dec. 31.

Police said they opened their investigation at 3 a.m. on New Year’s Eve.

In an email exchange Tuesday, a spokesman for the Office of Mental Health said he was barred by law from identifying the deceased.


“Several hours after the incident, one of the patients had passed,” Ogdensburg police said. “It is unknown, at this point in time, if the death can be attributed to the physical altercation.”

City and state officials are investigating the death, which took place at the Ogdensburg psychiatric center over the weekend. The death occurred following a fight between two patients at the facility, according to authorities. However, a cause of death has not yet been determined, officials said.

Police said an autopsy will be performed and the investigation continues.

49ers will make every effort to keep Jimmy Garoppolo –

When he spoke to the media on Monday as he and his teammates cleaned out their lockers, Garoppolo played a bit coy when asked about his forthcoming contract negotiations. He also referred to next season’s Niners in an inclusive way on multiple occasions and one day earlier discussed how he felt he and the 49ers were a good match.

In the event the Niners decide to use the tag, they could declare Garoppolo their “exclusive” franchise player, thus eliminating any chance he’d have to negotiate with other teams and offering him a one-year deal worth around $25 million.

“I think we’ve had conversations with him and we know where he stands, and we’re comfortable with that,” Lynch said.

While Garoppolo has publicly maintained a poker face on his contract status, Lynch said he feels good about the situation based on what’s taken place behind closed doors.

Still, the Niners’ preference is to find a common ground and strike a deal with Garoppolo soon so they can begin using what’s left of their cap space on building up the roster around him.

“I like being here,” Garoppolo said. “We had a good thing going at the end of this year. You know, we’ll see what happens.”

If the 49ers are unable to work out a long-term contract with Garoppolo soon, they can use the franchise tag to create a bigger negotiating window with him. The first day the Niners can use the tag is Feb. 20 and they have until March 6 to use it.

“Obviously, Jimmy came in and he was fabulous,” Lynch said. “He was great for us and he made people around him better and I think that’s the mark of a player who has an opportunity to be special is, do you make people around you better? He did that.”

New cancer treatments have perplexing side effects – Washington Post

Now, doctors organizations and nonprofit groups are mobilizing to narrow the knowledge gap on immunotherapy — an increasingly urgent task, they say, as the new treatments move from academic medical centers to community hospitals and oncology practices.

Like many oncologists, Lipson gives his patients wallet cards in case they have to go to the ER. “They say, ‘I’m on immuno-oncology, please contact my oncologist,’ and give the drug name,” he said.

Legg vividly remembers the 2004 World Series, and not just because her beloved Boston Red Sox won. She had gotten tests after straining her back lifting her young son, and a doctor called her at home during one of the games. “I am sorry,” he said. “You have lung cancer.”

Common problems caused by checkpoint inhibitors, such as rashes and diarrhea, are usually mild. Dangerous ones, such as the inflammation of the heart muscle, called myocarditis, are extremely rare. Last year, Javid Moslehi, director of cardio-oncology at the Vanderbilt University Department of Medicine, reported on two patients who developed myocarditis after being treated with a combination of two checkpoint inhibitors and quickly died.

When Diane Legg began seeing black specks in her right eye, she went to an ophthalmologist near her home in Amesbury, Mass. He said she had a torn retina and needed laser surgery.

“The last thing you want to do is scare people away from lifesaving treatments,” said Jeffrey Bluestone, an immunologist at the University of California at San Francisco who is president and chief executive of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy.

Cutting-edge immunotherapy treatment approved for another deadly cancer

Recently, with her cancer growing again, she went on a new trial involving two medications, neither of which are immunotherapy drugs. She had some mouth sores, but overall her response has been good and she’s optimistic.
