An international study has found that 90 percent of the store and supermarket receipts made from thermal paper that were analyzed in the new research contain bisphenol A (BPA), a known endocrine disruptor which can change an individual's hormonal balance and has previously been linked with infertility, obesity and cancer. Led by researchers at the University of Granada (UGR) along with Spanish and Brazilian researchers, the new study looked at 112 thermal paper receipts and tickets from Brazil, Spain and France to analyze the presence of BPA and bisphenol S (BPS). Thermal paper is "easily identified" say the researchers as "they are those receipts that, after some time, lose wh...Keep on reading: Majority of shop receipts contain hormone disruptor BPA, says new study.....»»

Knicks snap 8-game skid with 119-112 win over Lakers

By GREG BEACHAM,  AP Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 22 points, Trey Burke added 16 and the New York Knicks snapped their eight-game losing streak with a 119-112 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). Emmanuel Mudiay had 15 points and seven rebounds for the Knicks, who blew an early 17-point lead before rallying from a six-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Enes Kanter scored eight of his 16 points down the stretch as the Knicks pulled away, ending their first win since Dec. 14 on an 11-3 run. The Lakers dropped to 1-4 without LeBron James, who is sidelined with a left groin strain. Los Angeles also played without second-leading scorer Kyle Kuzma, who has a bruised back. New York capitalized on the Lakers' injuries to earn just its second win in 15 games. The Knicks took the lead for good on Kevin Knox's free throws with 3:45 left, and Kanter came up with two big baskets in the final minute. Seven players scored in double figures for New York, including 10 points in the fourth quarter from Mario Hezonja, who hadn't played significant minutes in 2 ½ weeks. Brandon Ingram scored 21 points and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 19 for the Lakers, who forced only two turnovers in the second half and struggled for consistent offense. The Knicks rolled early, scoring 39 points in the first quarter and jumping to a 17-point lead early in the second with Hardaway's offense and strong defense. The Lakers are struggling for offensive cohesiveness without James, as might be expected, but Caldwell-Pope and Lonzo Ball hit three 3-pointers apiece in the first half to keep it close. TIP-INS Knicks: Frank Ntilikina played only briefly in the first half before injuring his ankle and sitting out the rest of the game. ... Rookie Mitchell Robinson missed his ninth straight game with a sprained left ankle. Coach David Fizdale says they're being cautious with his recovery. Lakers: Kuzma was hurt in LA's loss to Oklahoma City on Wednesday. Kuzma stayed home from Staples Center for this game, but coach Luke Walton is hopeful the forward will feel good enough to participate on their upcoming two-game road trip. ... Michael Beasley returned from a 13-game absence and scored six points in his first appearance since Dec. 7. The former Knicks forward has been away frequently during his first season with the Lakers to be with his mother, who died of cancer last month. UP NEXT Knicks: At Trail Blazers on Monday. Lakers: At Timberwolves on Sunday......»»

From duct-taped shoes to $11M: Super frugal man leaves surprise donations

SEATTLE---Alan Naiman was known for an unabashed thriftiness that veered into comical, but even those closest to him had no inkling of the fortune that he quietly amassed and the last act that he had long planned. The Washington state social worker died of cancer this year at age 63, leaving most of a surprising $11-million estate to children's charities that help the poor, sick, disabled and abandoned. The amount baffled the beneficiaries and his best friends, who are lauding Naiman as the anniversary of his death approaches in January. That's because the Seattle man patched up his shoes with duct tape, sought deals at the grocery store deli at closing time and took his best fr...Keep on reading: From duct-taped shoes to $11M: Super frugal man leaves surprise donations.....»»

Bites off more than it can chew

JOEL LAMANGAN’s Rainbow’s Sunset is a convoluted story of a rich troubled clan, whose main conflict revolves around the family members’ having to deal with grandfather Ramon (played by Eddie Garcia), who comes out as gay and wants to live with his best friend and lover Fredo (Tony Mabesa) who is dying from cancer. But Ramon’s outing himself at the age of 84 (“It’s already 2018!”) should be the least of this family’s — and the audience’s — concerns because Rainbow Sunset doesn’t only feature a conflicted clan, but its storyline is problematic too......»»
