Kaepernick throws passes for 40 minutes at odd NFL workout

By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer RIVERDALE, Ga. — Colin Kaepernick threw passes for about 40 minutes on a high school field, then signed autographs for hundreds of fans who gathered in an end zone to watch his NFL workout that was suddenly moved Saturday, the latest strange twist in the saga of the exiled quarterback. Eight team representatives made it to the new location, including Philadelphia Eagles vice president of football operations Andrew Berry. It appeared the Jets, Redskins and Chiefs also had scouts in attendance. They stood along the sideline, jotting into their notepads as Kaepernick tossed passes to four free-agent receivers. “Our biggest thing with everything today was to make sure we had transparency in what went on,” Kaepernick said afterward. ‘We weren’t getting that elsewhere, so we came out here.” It was a surreal scene — a quarterback who led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl, who should be in the prime of his career at age 32, staging a workout at Charles Drew High School south of Atlanta. Kaepernick, who worked out in a tank top and shorts,…

City Council To Approve East Sacramento Parking Program For Merchant Workers

EAST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Merchant workers in East Sacramento are about to get a break on parking. The Sacramento City Council is set to launch a pilot program offering up special permits for merchant workers allowing them to park in designated areas during peak hours. Local employees told CBS13 they have to get creative daily to find a parking space, sometimes moving their cars several times in a shift. “There has been times I had to park across the street in a gravel lot, so yeah, I have been late”, Kristine Madigan said. City council is considering the one-year pilot program for portions of Elvas, 65th, and 66th streets. Those qualified will have designated areas where they can park during their shifts. Some workers say they can’t wait. “After opening hours, you’re kind of on your own to find a spot,” Calvin Crawford, a local brewery manager, said. This plan could get city council approval on Tuesday. If the program is successful in East Sacramento over the pilot year, officials said they may expand the project citywide.

For Heart Disease, Medications May Work As Well As Invasive Surgery, Major Trial Shows

(CNN) — High-risk patients with stable heart disease may fare just as well on medications alone, versus having invasive heart operations such as stents and bypass surgeries, according to a major trial. The results were presented Saturday at the American Heart Association’s yearly conference. While the invasive procedures were found to improve chest pain and quality of life in some patients, a number of key outcomes did not differ significantly — namely, subsequent heart attack, hospitalization for unstable chest pain or heart failure, resuscitation after cardiac arrest and death from cardiovascular causes. “Patients want to know, is this treatment going to make me live longer?” said study chair Dr. Judith Hochman, senior associate dean for clinical sciences at NYU Langone Health. “Based on what we saw, we did not see evidence that would make them live longer.” Stents and bypass surgeries are commonly used for patients with heart attacks, but whether to intervene with patients who are stable — who have blockages or chest pain during exercise, but not an acute heart attack — has been hotly debated. Patients having a heart attack were not…

Democrats — candidates and activists alike — express passion at state convention in Long Beach

LONG BEACH — The first public steps as a presidential candidate didn’t go smoothly for Deval Patrick, the former governor of Massachusetts and the latest figure to join an already crowded field hoping to become the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in 2020. As he walked on stage Saturday, Nov. 16, at the California Democratic Party’s 2019 Endorsing Convention in Long Beach, Patrick was greeted with tepid applause and a few thumbs down. That mixed greeting was a sharp contrast to the cheers and long standing ovation offered up by a few thousand people 20 minutes earlier for Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, who is heading up the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump.

Senator Bernie Sanders Holds Rally in El Sereno Ahead of CA Democratic Convention

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders held a rally in El Sereno on Saturday, ahead of the state democratic convention. The Senator from Vermont energized a massive crowd at Woodrow Wilson High School, while they chanted his name. In light of the recent shooting at Saugus High School, KTLA’s Chris Wolfe asked Sanders about gun legislation. “Gun policy in this country, under my administration, will not be determined by the NRA,” Sanders said. “It will be determined by the American people and what the American people want is common sense gun safety legislation.” The senator also talked about rent affordability and rent control expansion in the state. “We have a massive housing crisis not just in California but all over this country…that’s insane,” he said. Sanders discussed immigration reform and stronger border security balanced with policies of compassion, as he called it. “We’re going to defeat Trump. End of discussion,” he said. The next stop for Sanders and nine other 2020 presidential candidates is the Democratic presidential debate in Atlanta, Georgia next Wednesday.
