Rowan Football Falls at Christopher Newport, 20-14; Fourth-Quarter Rally Foiled

NEWPORT NEWS, VA -- Rowan had a fourth-quarter comeback fall just short as the Profs fell 20-14 at Christopher Newport on Saturday in a New Jersey Athletic Conference matchup. The Profs, who trailed 20-0 after the third, got an early touchdown in the fourth from James Fara and later a big blocked punt helped set up a second score from Fara to put Rowan back in the contest. However the Captains were able to control the ball over the final five minutes to hold on for the outcome. Fara ran for 99 yards on 22 carries and added three catches for 19 yards in the contest. Quarterback Mike Husni was 13-of-24 for 120 yards and was intercepted once. Six of those completions went to John Maldonado who ended with 73 receiving yards. Defensively, Ahmad Gantt was trouble for the CNU offense, as the defensive end totaled seven tackles, two sacks,... Read more →


Gas Prices Begin to Rise Again as Reserve Nears Bottom

Running on Empty: Aerial view of an offshore jack-up drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Shutterstock (The Center Square) – Gas prices are rising again just as the Strategic Petroleum Reserve hits a low point that many say is a problem. Gas prices hit record highs in the middle of June, surpassing a national average of $5 per gallon before starting a steady downward trend for several consecutive weeks. That streak ended last week when gas prices began to tick back up. The current national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.77, up from $3.68 a week ago. The Biden administration also touted the lower gas prices last Tuesday, but the very next day data showed they had begun to rise again. “Folks, gas prices are now back to levels they were at in early March,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “That means nearly all of the...

CNB MEDICAL NEWS: The Link between COVID-19 B Vaccination and the Increase in Menstrual Cycle Length

The large NIH-funded study included participants in North America and Europe. A large international study has confirmed the findings of a previous U.S. study that linked COVID-19 vaccination with an average increase in menstrual cycle length of less than one day. The increase was not associated with any change in the number of days of menses (days of bleeding). Funded by the National Institutes of Health, the new study included data from nearly 20,000 people from Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, Europe and other parts of the world who received any of nine different vaccines. For most study participants, the increase resolved in the cycle following vaccination. The study’s principal investigator was Alison Edelman, M.D., M.P.H., of Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. It appears in the BMJ Medicine. “These findings provide additional information for counseling women on what to expect after vaccination,” said Diana Bianchi, M.D.,... Read more →
