49ers Look To Stay Perfect As Surging Seahawks Come To Town

SANTA CLARA (AP) — Emmanuel Sanders got acclimated in the San Francisco offense so fast that he caught a TD pass on his first drive with the team five days after being acquired by the 49ers in a trade from Denver. Sanders only built from there by posting the most prolific receiving performance this season for the 49ers four days later as he already has become Jimmy Garoppolo’s No. 1 outside target. “I’m not surprised,” Sanders said. “I really didn’t give it any thought. My job is to come in, make plays and be in the perfect spot. His job is to deliver the football. We were able to do that.” The Seattle Seahawks can only hope for as seamless a transition from their new big-play wideout. Josh Gordon could make his debut on Monday night for Seattle (7-2) in an NFC West showdown against the 49ers (8-0). The addition of Gordon to a wide receiver group that already includes the dynamic Tyler Lockett and impressive rookie D.K. Metcalf will make Seattle’s passing game even more dangerous as soon as he becomes more comfortable in…

‘Hero’ Teen Who Survived Mexico Massacre Speaks Out

A teenager who survived a brutal ambush that killed nine people in Mexico last week and walked 14 miles to get help for his siblings says his mother desperately tried to protect her kids before she was fatally shot, NBC News reports. Devin Langford, 13, was in the car with his family in the Mexican border state of Sonora on Nov. 4 when men who appeared to be wearing bulletproof vests started shooting at them with long guns, the boy told ABC News in his first interview since the attack. Devin said his mother tried to start the car but couldn’t, believing a bullet hit the engine.  “She was trying to pray the Lord,” he said. Her final words to her children before she was killed were “get down right now.” Devin said he and the others who were able to walk carried their injured siblings as far as they could before hiding the wounded children behind a bush while they continued on to look for help. “Every one of them were bleeding really bad, so I was trying to get in a rush to get…

Raiders’ No. 1 Pick Ferrell is Gaining Momentum

Has Clelin Ferrell finally arrived? As the Raiders head into the second half of this 2019 season, No. 1 pick Ferrell is coming off his best game. The defensive end had a monster performance in Oakland’s 26-24 victory over the Chargers this past Thursday night, with 2½ sacks, eight tackles, three quarterback hits and a batted pass. Still a Chance? 2020 Longshots Insist Race Is Up for Grabs Ferrell had produced a sack in the season-opening victory over Denver on Sept. 9, but had gone six straight games without another until his big game against the Chargers. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and the coaching staff had repeatedly said they were happy with the progress Ferrell was making, but Oakland needed Ferrell to get sacks – the reason he was taken with the fourth overall pick of  the draft out of Clemson. After Push From Perry, Backers Got Huge Gas Deal in Ukraine “Clelin Ferrell and the pass rush showed up,” Gruden told Paul Gutierrez of ESPN after the victory over the Chargers. “He (Ferrell) does a lot more than just rush the passer.

Niners Will Have to Contain Russell Wilson

The 49ers defense will be challenged Monday night by a quarterback unlike any other in the NFL in Russell Wilson. While the San Francisco defense has been outstanding in 2019 – ranking as No. 1 in the league in fewest yards per game (241) and passing yards per game (128.1), while giving up just 12.8 points per game (No. 2 in the league) – Wilson has a way of breaking down even the best defenses. Off-Duty Officer Apparently Shoots, Kills Man in Vallejo Wilson, in his eighth season, is perhaps the best scrambling quarterback in the NFL. He can escape oncoming rushers, buy time by sliding left or right, and then has the arm strength and accuracy to connect with his receivers deep downfield. Or, he can dart upfield to get a first down. He’s having perhaps the best season of a terrific career. Bernard Tyson, CEO and Chairman of Kaiser Permanente, Dies Wilson leads the NFL in touchdown passes with 22 – and has thrown just one interception. His quarterback rating of 118.2 also is a league best, and far above his excellent career…

Marin Football Player Tackles Hardships on Path to College

On paper, as in real life, Jamar Sekona is a big guy, a top college-recruited lineman headed to USC next year, hailing from the same private Marin Catholic High School that launched the vaunted NFL career of quarterback Jared Goff. On the stat sheet, Sekona looks like a guy on a charmed ramble into football. But before Sekona, a 6-foot-2-inch, 300-pound defensive tackle, ever took a snap of high school football his freshman year, he was overcoming hurdles much larger than the linemen on the opposing side of the ball. Off-Duty Officer Apparently Shoots, Kills Man in Vallejo “I’ve been to thirteen schools before Marin Catholic,” Sekona said in the apartment he shares with his mother, sister and her children in Fairfax. “And I’ve lived in six states.” Sekona was heavily recruited by more than a dozen Pac-12 schools over the summer before committing to USC where he’ll go next year on a football scholarship. Bernard Tyson, CEO and Chairman of Kaiser Permanente, Dies “I mean, he’s one of the best ever,” said his varsity coach Mazi Moayed. “We’ve had a few guys come through…

Your Hatred Of Heart-Healthy Veggies Could Be Genetic

(CNN) — If certain vegetables have always made you gag, you may be more than a picky eater. Instead, you might be what scientists call a “super-taster:” a person with a genetic predisposition to taste food differently. Unfortunately, being a super-taster doesn’t make everything taste better. In fact, it can do the opposite. Super-tasters are extremely sensitive to bitterness, a common characteristic of many dark green, leafy veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, to name a few. “The person who has that genetic propensity gets more of the sulfur flavor of, say, Brussels sprouts, especially if they’ve been overcooked,” said University of Connecticut professor Valerie Duffy, an expert in the study of food taste, preference and consumption. “So that [bitter] vegetable is disliked, and because people generalize, soon all vegetables are disliked,” Duffy said. “If you ask people, ‘Do you like vegetables?’ They don’t usually say, ‘Oh yeah, I don’t like this, but I like these others.’ People tend to either like vegetables or not.” In fact, people with the “bitter gene” are 2.6 times more likely to eat fewer vegetables than people…

Marijuana Use Is Rising Among Young Adults, Especially College Students, Study Shows

(CNN) — Marijuana use among young adults, especially college students, has been steadily increasing, and the numbers are pretty high, according to a new report. The article, published by The American Academy of Pediatrics on Monday, is based on the results of the 2002-2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, which examined marijuana and smoked tobacco use among 18- to 22-year-olds in the US. The survey analyzed the use of marijuana and tobacco within the past 30 days and the past 12 months. However, the method by which the marijuana was consumed — such as smoking, eating, or vaping — was not identified. Although more young adults are exclusively smoking weed, the number of college students using the drug is increasing at a faster rate. Exclusive marijuana use was higher among people in college for both past-30-day and past-12-month use. College students who reported exclusively smoking marijuana in the past 30 days increased by nearly 8% within 14 years. For noncollege young adults, past-30-day marijuana use increased by about 4%. By 2016, nearly two in five young adults reported smoking marijuana in the past year.…

3 Rescued, 1 Missing After Boat Capsized Off Northern California Coast

BODEGA BAY, Calif. (AP) — The Coast Guard has suspended a search for a man who went missing after a fishing boat capsized off the Northern California coast.

California Hiker Found Dead On Top Of Glacier After Missing For Days

(CNN) — A three-day search for a missing hiker has ended after he was found dead on top of a glacier in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. Alan Stringer, 40, of Huntington Beach, was reported missing Monday evening when he didn’t return home after a hike, the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Investigators found his body Thursday at the top of the Darwin Glacier, which is near the base of Mount Darwin. Stringer did not tell anyone his hiking plans or potential routes, and authorities said he’d recently bought hiking equipment and took mountaineering course. His vehicle was found shortly after midnight Tuesday morning, authorities said. A forensic analysis of Stringer’s cell phone found that he had made one call Nov. 3 — before his planned hike. Inyo search and rescue crews deployed a helicopter during the search. The-CNN-Wire & © 2019 Cable News Network, Inc., a WarnerMedia Company. All rights reserved.
