Andrew Yang Rides Wave of Support at Costa Mesa Event for Asian American and Pacific Islander Voters

Leave it to Andrew Yang to turn a political forum about issues concerning Asian American and Pacific Islander communities into something resembling a rock concert. The businessman-turned-2020 Democratic presidential candidate shared a video of himself crowd surfing through a packed room at the AAPI Democratic Presidential Forum in Costa Mesa, California, on Sunday. And the Yang Gang went wild. Haven’t crowdsurfed in a while #YangGang @GPSofficial pic.twitter.com/3ynxj8m21v — Andrew Yang (@AndrewYang) September 8, 2019 “He trusts us with his life and we shall trust him with ours! #YangGang,” one Twitter user wrote. “Now this is what I call a Blue Wave,” an Andrew Yang fan account added. The forum was put on by the AAPI Victory Fund, a super PAC that focuses on mobilizing voters in the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Yang was among the featured guests, which also included 2020 candidates Tulsi Gabbard and Tom Steyer. Yang talked about his views on affirmative action, the impact of climate change on Pacific Islanders, gender inequality and, of course, math. Math is Yang’s way of billing himself as the anti-Donald Trump. “The opposite of Donald Trump…

‘It Was Surreal’: Women Turn to VR Technology to Get Through Pain of Childbirth

While in labor with her second child, in November 2016, Erin Martucci’s doctor suggested an unorthodox option to quell her anxiety about giving birth without the pain relief of an epidural: a virtual-reality headset. Martucci, a stay-at-home mother from New Hampton, New York, was skeptical, but her husband convinced her to give it a try. She put on the headset, and was immediately transported to a beach scene, where a soothing voice guided her focus and breathing. A couple hours later — which to her felt like much less — her doctor came to take the headset off: it was time to push. Soon after, her daughter was born. The experience, she recently told CNN Business, was surreal. She never forgot she was in labor, but the VR visuals and the disembodied voice helped her calm down and shift attention away from her pain. Nearly three years later, Martucci is pregnant with her third child, due in October. She’s already spoken to her doctor about how she’d like to use VR again. “We’re definitely going to approach the birth with using VR and going drug…

Jimmy vs. Jameis: Who won quarterback battle in Tampa Bay?

Click here if you’re unable to view the photo gallery on your mobile device. Unfortunately for both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jameis Winston, the at-times-maligned quarterbacks provided some ammunition for their critics in the season opener on Sunday. They were each partially responsible for the sloppiness that dominated much of the action at Raymond James Stadium as both Garoppolo and Winston each threw pick-sixes in the 49ers’ 31-17 victory. Garoppolo may have turned in an uneven performance — he went 18-for-27 for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception — but at least he escaped with a victory, San Francisco’s first road win in two years. More worrisome for the 49ers were a number of off-target throws by Garoppolo, who was making his first regular-season appearance since tearing his ACL in Kansas City last September. Winston’s struggles were also apparent as he missed more than a few open receivers while going 20-for-36 for 194 yards. His biggest transgression was resorting to the interception-prone quarterback Tampa Bay was hoping he’d outgrow as he was picked off three times, two of which were returned for touchdowns by Richard…

Athletics to call up No. 1 prospect

Athletics to call up No. 1 prospect OAKLAND — The A’s are expected to call up No. 1 prospect Jesús Luzardo, MLB.com and the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Luzardo should join the team for a key four-game series in Houston. The left-handed pitching prospect is expected to be a centerpiece starter in the A’s future rotation, but could pitch out of the bullpen in Oakland due to a crowded, quasi-six-man rotation.

Report: A’s to recall top pitching prospect for Houston series

OAKLAND — A’s top pitching prospect Jesus Luzardo will be promoted to the majors, joining the club in Houston on Monday, according to a report by MLB.com. A’s manager Bob Melvin, asked about it immediately after the team’s 3-1 win over Detroit, said he didn’t know anything about the move. Luzardo, a 22-year-old from Peru, is ranked as the 18th-best minor league prospect by MLB Pipeline and is regarded as one of the game’s best young left-handed pitchers. “He’s fantastic,” said A’s rookie catcher Sean Murphy, who came to Oakland from Las Vegas last week. “He’s young but he’s mature beyond his years. He’s got all the tools necessary to pitch at this level, there’s no doubt in my mind. He just mixes his pitches well, he’s got a great changeup, got a great curveball and a great heater.” Asked if he thought Luzardo is ready for the pressure that comes with joining a pennant chase as a much-publicized prospect, Murphy said, “He’ll be able to handle that, no doubt.” Given that the A’s currently have six starters in their rotation, it’s unclear whether Melvin would…

Sean Manaea dominant, A’s win again

Click here if you’re unable to view the photo gallery on your mobile device. OAKLAND — Left-hander Sean Manaea, in just his second start after a year on the shelf following shoulder surgery, struck out 10 batters and allowed just one run in seven innings Sunday as the A’s beat the Detroit Tigers 3-1 in front of 24,550 at the Oakland Coliseum. Manaea didn’t allow a hit through five innings before Christin Stewart homered on a 3-2 pitch to open the sixth. Manaea allowed just two hits, equaling his career-high for strikeouts and threw 96 pitches. Manaea, who had surgery on his pitching shoulder last September, made his return last Sunday at Yankee Stadium and pitched five shutout innings. In 12 innings, he has surrendered one run on three hits with 15 strikeouts. On the heels of Chris Bassitt fanning 11 Detroit batters on Saturday, the A’s assembled back-to-back 10-strikeout games for the first time since Vida Blue and Catfish Hunter did it in 1971. The A’s (84-59) are now a season-high 25 games over .500. They remain in the No. 2 wild-card spot, one…
