    SAN FRANCISCO — A pair of San Diego Padres sluggers launched early home runs and a veteran San Francisco Giants starting pitcher struggled to give his lineup a chance. It appeared the Padres and Giants were destined to follow the exact same script from Tuesday night’s home opener at Oracle Park, but third baseman Donovan Solano had other ideas. Mike Yastrzmeski did, too. With two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Solano –who goes by “Donnie Barrels” in the Giants’ clubhouse– crushed a game-tying three-run home run into the left field bleachers off Padres set-up man Craig Stammen. In the bottom of the ninth, Yastrzemski stepped to the plate and pulled a fastball from Padres left-hander Mike Strahm...

For the last two years, Shea Patterson largely underwhelmed at the quarterback position for Michigan football. The Michigan Wolverines have gotten back to respectably under head coach Jim Harbaugh. However, they have not been anything close to the offensive juggernaut we thought they could be under the guidance of their former starting quarterback, now back at his alma mater. Christian McCaffrey’s younger brother Dylan McCaffrey may end up being the Wolverines’ starting quarterback in 2020. Michigan does have committed to them a five-star pro-style passer...

Senator Ernst, a Republican, has represented Iowa since 2015 and is the first female combat veteran to ever be elected to the United States Senate.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is sharpening his focus on his most ardent base of supporters as concern grows inside his campaign that his standing in the battleground states that will decide the 2020 election is slipping. Trump turned his attention this week to “left wing mobs” toppling Confederate monuments and visited the nation’s southern border to spotlight progress on his 2016 campaign promise to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall. He ignored public health experts warning Americans to avoid large gatherings by holding two large campaign events in Oklahoma and Arizona, parts of the country where coronavirus infections are surging. With his rhetorical turn, Trump is feeding red meat issues to a base that helped spur his upset...

In her recently-published book “Dare to Fly,” she describes her experience overcoming rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment and the loss of family and friends as a “misery database.” “We all have that database of difficult things...
    If you’ve found you’re no longer disinfecting your hands as often or becoming more lenient toward unnecessary trips outside, you’re not alone. This unintentional phenomenon is “caution fatigue” — and you have your brain to blame. You were likely vigilant at the pandemic’s outset, consistently keeping up with ways to ensure you didn’t get infected with the coronavirus or infect others. The threat was new and urgent to your brain. And driven by the human instinct for self-preservation, fresh fear motivated you to eagerly adhere to recommended safety precautions. Fast-forward three months, and that sense of immediacy may have faded. Caution fatigue “occurs when people show low motivation or energy to comply with safety guidelines,” said Jacqueline Gollan, who holds...
