Weather forecasters said the storm could strengthen to near-hurricane force by the time it hits the central U.S. Gulf Coast.Gordon formed into a tropical storm near the Flor-ida Keys early Monday as it moved west-northwest at 16 mph. The storm was expected to reach coastal Mississippi and Louisiana by late Tues-day and move inland over the lower Mississippi Valley on Wednesday.The National Hurricane Center in Miami said at 2 p.m. EDT that the storm was cen-tered 15 miles west-southwest of Marco Island on Monday. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 50 mph (85 kph).Miami Beach Police said via Twitter that the Labor Day holiday was NOT a beach day,Ž with rough surf and potential rip currents. Red flags flew over Pensac-ola-area beaches in Floridas Panhandle, where swimming and wading in the Gulf of Mexico was prohibited. More than 4,000 Florida Power & Light customers lost power Monday due to weather conditions.The National Weather Ser-vice said current conditions were somewhat favorableŽ for tornadoes in affected parts of South Florida on Monday.The storm left many businesses on Floridas Gulf Coast feeling shortchanged by the holiday weekend.

View-ers just tuning into the battle over the 53-year-old appel-late judges nomination should expect to see Kavanaugh portrayed by fellow Republicans as a principled jurist who has no preconceived ideas about the law. Democrats will try to paint President Donald Trumps nominee as a results-oriented conservative who wants to undo abortion rights and generally push the Supreme Court to the right.Lawmakers know the public is watching, but as the nomination hearing gets going and lawmakers seek to probe the nominees views, they often slip into using legal jargon and refer to past Supreme Court cases in shorthand. It can sound as though theyre talking in code. Expect senators to use these terms at Kavanaughs hearing, starting Tuesday:Roe v. Wade, Planned Par-enthood v. Casey „ These cases from 1973 and 1992, respectively, are the two main decisions on abortion rights. Kavanaugh has not said whether he believes they were decided correctly, and hes not likely to do so during the hearings. But he is certain to be asked repeat-edly about abortion, Roe and Casey.

One official told a Brazilian news outlet that as much as 90 percent may have been destroyed. Some parts of the collection were stored at other sites.For many in Brazil, the state of the 200-year-old natural history museum quickly became a metaphor for what they see as the gutting of Bra-zilian culture and life during years of corruption, economic collapse and poor governance.Its a crime that the museum was allowed to get to this shape,Ž said Laura Albu-querque, a 29-year-old dance teacher who was in a crowd protesting outside the gates. What happened isnt just regrettable, its devastating, and politicians are responsible for it.ŽThe cause of the fire that broke out Sunday night was not known. Federal police will investigate since the museum was part of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. But protesters, commentators and museum directors themselves said years of government neglect had left the museum so under-funded that its staff had turn to crowdfunding sites to open exhibitions. Luiz Fernando Dias Duarte, the museums deputy director, criticized authorities for starving the museum of vital funding while spending lavishly on stadiums to host the World Cup in 2014.The money spent on each one of those stadiums „ a quarter of that would have been enough to make this museum safe and resplen-dent,Ž he said in an interview in front of the still-smoldering ruins aired on Brazilian television.Roberto Leher, rector of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, said it was well known that the building was vulner-able to fire and in need of extensive repairs. Duarte said he was in the habit of unplug-ging everything in his office at night because of the risk.Civil defense authorities were concerned that internal walls and the roof could collapse further, so officials had to wait to conduct a full accounting of losses.Duarte said that anything held in the main building was likely destroyed. Cristiana Serejo, a vice-director of the museum, told the G1 news portal that as little as 10 percent of the collection may have survived. The building was once home to the royal family, and the museums collection included pieces that belonged to them.The collection also contained a painting by the Brazilian artist Candido Portinari and extensive pale-ontological, anthropological and biological specimens. It held a skull called Luzia that was among the oldest fossils ever found in the Americas as well as an Egyptian mummy and the largest meteorite ever discovered in Brazil „ one of the few objects that officials could confirm had survived.Brazil has struggled to emerge from a two-year recession and seen its political and corporate elite jailed in Latin Americas largest corruption investigation. The country has been riven with deep political divisions fol-lowing the impeachment and removal of former President Dilma Rousseff.The protesters gathered outside the museum gates tried several times to push into the site, demanding to see the damage and calling on the government to rebuild. Police held the crowd back with pepper spray, tear gas and batons.This fire is what Brazilian politicians are doing to the people,Ž said Rosana Hollanda, a 35-year-old high school history teacher, who was crying. Theyre burning our history, and theyre burn-ing our dreams.ŽSigns of disrepair were evident: The fencing was dilapidated, stonework was cracked and lawns appeared untended.The museums budget had fallen from around $130,000 in 2013 to around $84,000 last year, according to Marcio Martins, a spokesman for the museum. This year was on track to include an increase from last year.In a sign of how strapped the museum was, when a termite infestation last year forced the closure of room that house a 13-yard-long dino-saur skeleton, officials turned to crowdfunding to raise the money to reopen the room.The institution had recently secured approval for nearly $5 million for a planned renova-tion, including an upgrade of the fire-prevention system, officials said.Look at the irony. The money is now there, but we ran out of time,Ž museum Director Alexander Kellner told reporters at the scene.President Michel Temer announced Monday that private and public banks, as well as mining giant Vale and state-run oil company Petrobras, have agreed to help rebuild the museum and reconstitute its collections. French President Emmanuel Macron offered in a tweet to send experts to help rebuild the museum.Brazilians see metaphor for their struggles in museum reThe National Museum, seen from above, stands gutted after an overnight “ re Monday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

[MARIO LOBAO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] GREENWOOD, S.C.Husband distraught after wifes body left to rot 3 yearsThe husband of a South Carolina woman whose body authorities said was left inside a funeral home to rot for almost three years said he cant stop thinking about how poorly she was treated in death.A grand jury indicted two men „ Lawrence Robert Meadows and Roderick Mitchell Cummings „ with desecration of human remains after prosecutors said they left Mary Alice Pitts Moore in unrefrigerated rooms under blankets and surrounded by air fresheners for nearly three years at First Family Funeral Homes locations first in Greenwood and later in Spartanburg.Arrest warrants against the men said Fred Parker Jr. and his family owed them money for Moores funeral, so they didnt cremate her remains and return them as requested.SOMERSET WEST, SOUTH AFRICA8 killed in munitions depot blast in South AfricaSouth African authorities say at least eight people have been killed in an explosion at a munitions plant near Cape Town.Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the blast at the Rheinmetall Denel Munition depot, which shook homes and rattled windows in the area on Monday.According to the African News Agency, Cape Town fire official Theo Layne says eight people died. The agency, which is based in South Africa, says several people are missing and that firefighters went to the scene to extinguish the flames. SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF.8 wounded in gun“ re at California apartment complexEight people were wounded, two critically, during a shoot-ing at a California apartment complex during a dice game, police said Monday.Officers arrived at a chaotic scene on Sunday night and had to call for help after a hostile crowd emerged from the complex, San Bernardino police spokeswoman Sadie Albers said. She said investigators are still trying to determine how the shooting unfolded, what preceded it and whether there was an exchange of gunfire.Most of the witnesses are being uncooperative, so were not really sure what happened prior to the shoot-ing,Ž she said. Evidence at the scene showed handguns and rifles were used, police have said.IN BRIEFSAN DIEGOSuspect shot after gun“ re at California racetrackA man who was told there were no more tickets available for an Ice Cube concert at a California racetrack was shot Sunday night by a sher-iffs deputy after the man fired a gun into a crowd, authorities said.The man, identified Monday as 22-year-old Daniel Elizar-raras of Escondido, pulled the gun during an argument at the ticket window at Del Mar Fairgrounds and fired several shots, the San Diego County Sheriffs Department said in a statement.Deputies returned fire, the statement said.Elizarraras was taken to a hospital and listed in stable condition, sheriffs Lt.

[SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT/TNS] New study suggests super snake could emerge from Everglades pythonsBy Jenny StaletovichMiami Herald (TNS)MIAMI „ What started out as a straightforward genetic study of Floridas invasive python population has turned up a surprising plot twist: a small number of crossbred Burmese and Indian pythons with the potential to become a kind of Everglades super snake.For the study, published this week in the journal Ecology and Evolution, U.S. Geological Survey researchers examined the tail tissue of 400 snakes captured in South Florida, from the Big Cypress Swamp to the Everglades. While the vast majority appeared to be closely related Burmese pythons „ imagine a family reunion packed with first and second cousins „ 13 had genetic markers from Indian pythons, a subspecies that unlike the swamp-loving Burmese snake prefers high, dry ground.The number is clearly small, but it raises the risk that over time some Ever-glades snakes could become better suited to a more varied landscape.

We are proud of Allisons accomplishment and look forward to watching her artistry grow as she pur-sues her passion.Ž CINEFESTFrom Page A3 They include those who are homeless, truckers, immigrants, drug-addled, suicidal or ill „ all whose bodies are found nation-wide in cars, vans and other vehicles in the parking lots of the retail giant. It is the last stop, one that can go unno-ticed amid the daily crush of shoppers searching for deals, sometimes focused on the rattle of carts instead of their crowded surroundings.In Brevard, police have investigated nearly half a dozen such parking lot deaths since 2015, from the badly decomposed remains of a man found inside a fly-swarmed sedan at a beachside Walmart in the simmering July heat to that of a man who suffered from cancer, found the same year in a sport utility vehicle that sat in a far corner of the Walmart lot in Viera. In both cases, it was the pungent smell that first caught the attention of passers-by or workers.Its unfortunate but these do happen. Its not uncommon,Ž said Lt. Cheryl Trainer, spokes-woman for the Melbourne Police Department, an agency that has investigated the bulk of the Walmart parking lot deaths on the Space Coast.In each case, officers turn up in environmental suits and masks, sorting through the grisly dis-coveries, from pill bottles to notepads and photos left behind, hoping to piece together the lives of people like Unger who ended up in the parking lots.The bodies „ the shell of their physical humanity faded and decomposed by the elements „ are care-fully removed and turned over to medical examiners. Family members, if any can be found, are contacted.Across the nation, the stories bear similar refrains:„ In California, a woman missing for months turned up dead. Investigators in the Feb-ruary 2016 case said the womans body remained in the car, parked at the retailer, for up to three months.„ In Illinois, the body of a 49-year-old man who was reported missing for more than a month, was found dead May 18, 2018, in a van at a Bradley, Illi-nois, Walmart. He was seen going into the store on May 1 and then leaving a short time later. He died of natural causes, accord-ing to media reports.„ In Ohio, police said a 59-year-old man found April 17, 2018, in a pickup truck at an Airport Thru-way Walmart, died of natural causes. The body was in the truck, parked on the side of the retail store since April 8, authorities report.„ Here in Florida, a Walmart employee walk-ing the parking aisles Feb. 22, 2018, at a Tarpon Springs store reported a strong odor. Officers arrived and found an unidentified body. Police suspected suicide.Walmart has a long-standing corporate policy that anyone is welcome to stay in their parking lots overnight, depending on local laws. The open-lot policies vary from area to area, depending on the store managers. Most of the people we see are actually travelers, people in RVs. Theres like a whole society or culture out there. We do go out and check the lots, get the cars and keep an eye out for trash, but our workers arent peeping into peoples cars,Ž said Casey Staheli, a spokes-man for Walmart, whose corporate offices are based in Arkansas.Unfortunately, they might smell something and thats when its brought to our attention.ŽOther retailers besides Walmart see similar deaths in their parking areas.

[TIM SHORTT/ FLORIDA TODAY VIA AP]By Jamie Stengle and Emily SchmallThe Associated PressDALLAS „ Not long after the last time Ceci-lia Roberts was sent to an Atlanta hotel to be sold for sex, the then17-year-old was in a residential facility for girls like her, recovering from the trauma of trafficking as she helped prosecutors convict two adults she had turned to when she needed a place to stay.Roberts spent about a year in a 15-bed residential facility for girls at Wellspring Living in Georgia, one of a number of places established in response to what experts call a growing population of child sex-trafficking victims.Now 24 and working in purchasing for a health care system, Roberts said living in the safe house allowed her to focus on her education „ and to heal.For the first time, Im in a room full of people that I feel like understood me, and I didnt have to explain myself,Ž said Roberts, who returned to Wellspring for the job training pro-gram after moving out of the facility. As a child, it was all that I needed: just peace, and a little bit of attention and love. Thats all that I was looking for.ŽThe need for longterm and specialized care to treat child sextrafficking victims is increasing. For decades, rescued children wound up being arrested and thrown into the juvenile justice system. But thats changed in recent years, as states have moved to steer victims toward treatment. Twenty-four states and the District of Columbia have eliminated criminal liability for minors, with all but one state making the change since 2010, according to Shared Hope International which works to pre-vent the conditions that lead to sex trafficking. Experts say some states are reluctant to follow suit due to a lack of ser-vices for the children.We need more safe spaces where survivors can heal and re-enter their communities,Ž said Rebecca Epstein, executive director of the Center on Poverty and Inequality at George-town Law.Programs serve child sex-tra cking victimsIn this July 19 photo, Toni McKinley, Director of The Survivor Program for DMST at The Refuge, center, gives mentors a tour of the new facility, near Austin, Texas. [ERIC GAY/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] If the Indian pythons have a wider range, per-haps these Everglades snakes now have that capability,Ž said lead author and USGS genet-icist Margaret Hunter. Its quite interesting and quite surprising, but we dont know the extent its in the population.ŽBecause evolution seems to abhor certainty, theres also the possibility the opposite happens through another process, she said, euphemistically referred to as outbreed-ing depression.ŽThe study originally intended to look at the genetic makeup of South Florida snakes to better understand how they spread and how to help control them. Pythons started turning up in the 1980s, likely escapees from a South Dade breeding facility or released pets. By 2000, they were declared official residents in Ever-glades National Park and have since continued to expand north into the states expansive water conservation areas and west into Big Cypress. In 2016, they were found breeding in the Keys for the first time.If snakes in different areas had different DNA, that might tell wildlife managers something about how theyve been able to reproduce and spread so quickly.We were initially looking for the population structure to get some information to shed some light on the invasion dynamics, or the core areas where the population may be breeding and then send-ing off migrants,Ž Hunter said.No surprise, they found low diversity among the snakes that likely are the descendants of the handful of freed snakes, called the founder effect. In small populations, a shrinking gene pool can signal a population headed toward extinction: There is a good Florida example of that. By the 1990s, the number of Florida panthers had dwindled so low that the animals started suffering from the effects of in-breeding, including heart murmurs, reproductive problems and oddly kinked tails. Texas cougars, very close cous-ins, were imported to add to the gene pool.But the python population is so large „ researchers believe they number in the many thousands based on the steep drop in nearly all small mammals in their range „ that low diversity is not impeding the snakes ability to adapt, Hunter said.Such a large population allows them to rapidly adapt,Ž she said. If some animals die out because of climatic issues, there are other animals that may not die out.ŽBut in 13, they found that Indian marker.That was unex-pected,Ž Hunter said. I kept looking at the data to make sure what I was seeing was correct.ŽIts not clear where the species got crossed, she said. In their native ranges, Burmese and Indian pythons have remained mostly distinct either because of the prey they eat or barriers in habitat. But they could breed in the wild. Breed-ers also frequently cross species to produce more desirable colors and pat-terns for the pet trade. The snakes may also have hooked up in the Everglades, but Hunter said that seems less likely since the markers she detected, which are only passed down through female snakes, were historical.Because Hunter and her colleagues focused on genetics, its not yet clear how climate will play into the snakes evo-lution. Scientists suspect that a warming planet will allow them to roam fur-ther north. An upcoming study looking at how the snake has adapted should shed some light, she said. In the meantime, the rapid expansion has pro-vided researchers with a rare window into evolu-tion dynamics.All species do this,Ž Hunter said. But were watching evolutionary progress right in front of us.Ž SNAKESFrom Page A3

GRANTFrom Page A1 recent clues to his views, in the form of a speech that praised the late Chief Justice William Rehnquists dissent in Roe and Kavanaughs own dissenting opinion that would have denied immedi-ate access to an abortion for an immigrant teen in federal custody.Stare decisis „ Latin for to stand by things decided. Its the legal principle that judges use to base decisions on earlier ones. When it comes up at confirmation hearings, its often in refer-ence to abortion rights and its usually a way of asking if a nominee will overturn certain decisions „ like Roe v. Wade. Nominees invari-ably invoke stare decisis, or refer to something as settled law, to try to reassure sena-tors that they have great respect for Supreme Court precedents, without committing to preserve any specific one. Respect for precedent, however, has its limits. Last term, the court squarely overturned three precedents.Chevron deference „ A 1984 Supreme Court ruling, in a case involving the Chevron oil company, says that when laws arent crystal clear, federal agencies should be allowed to fill in the details. Thats what agencies do „ on environmental regulations, workplace standards, con-sumer protections and even immigration law. But a growing conservative legal movement has questioned the Chevron decision. Kavanaugh has expressed some support for limiting agencies discretion, as have several conservative justices. If a future Supreme Court were to limit the Chevron ruling, it would mark a big change in the law that would potentially make it harder to sustain governmental regulations.Recusal „ A judges decision to not take part in a case, usually because he participated in it at an earlier stage, or has a finan-cial or personal conflict. Democrats are going to press Kavanaugh to pledge to recuse himself if a case comes to the court involving Trump and special counsel Robert Muellers Russia investigation. He is not likely to commit to do so.Unitary executive „ Kavanaugh will be asked to explain his view of just how much power a president has under the unitary executive theory of con-stitutional law. Kavanaugh has written judicial opinions and law review articles that suggest he supports the idea that a president may decline to enforce a law he believes is unconstitutional. Questioners also may focus on Kavanaughs service in the White House under George W. Bush, who used signing statements to legislation that his administration saw as unreasonable or unconstitutional limits on executive power.Subpoena „ a legal order requiring a person to testify as a witness, it sometime also requires a person to turn over documents or other records under their control. Kavanaugh should expect to be asked whether the president can be subpoenaed, an open legal question that could reach the Supreme Court if Mueller tries to force the president to testify as part of the Russia investigation. Also an open question: Whether the president can be indicted, meaning charged with a crime. Affirmative action „ The term for efforts to improve opportunities for minorities, generally in employment and college admissions. Its a standard topic for Supreme Court confirmation hearings, particularly after a 2003 Supreme Court decision that predicted affirmative action wouldnt be necessary in 25 years. Senators may bring up a comment Kavanaugh made in 1999 about a different Supreme Court case, saying he believed it was one more step along the way in what I see as an inevitable conclusion within the next 10 to 20 years when the court says we are all one race in the eyes of government.ŽBalls and strikes „ OK, thats not a legal term, but it will come up anyway. Chief Justice John Roberts famously compared judges to umpires during his 2005 confirmation hearing, saying neither makes the rules, but rather both just apply them. He said hed remember if confirmed that his job is to call balls and strikes.Ž Lawmakers love to ask nominees about this analogy.Let him answer the questionŽ „ Again, not a legal term. Expect Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, or the Republican sitting in his place, to interject when Democrats questioning of Kavanaugh gets especially heated, or they try to cut in if they feel Kavanaugh is trying to filibuster. Question time is limited and senators often feel free to jump in to move the questioning along.

A10 Tuesday, September 4, 2018 | The Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump started his Labor Day with an attack on a top union leader, lashing out after criticism from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.Trump tweeted Monday that Trumka represented his union poorly on tele-vision this weekend.Ž He added: it is easy to see why unions are doing so poorly. A Dem!ŽThe presidents attack came after Trumka appeared on Fox News SundayŽ over the week-end where he said efforts to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement should include Canada. Trumka, whose organization is an umbrella group for most unions, said the econo-mies of the United States, Canada and Mexico are integratedŽ and its pretty hard to see how that would work with-out having Canada in the deal.ŽTrump said Saturday on Twitter that there was no political necessityŽ to keep Canada in NAFTA. But its questionable whether Trump can unilaterally exclude Canada from a deal to replace the three-nation NAFTA agreement, without the approval of Congress. Any such move would likely face lengthy legal and congressional challenges.Trump administra-tion negotiations to keep Canada in the reimagined trade bloc are to resume this week as Washington and Ottawa try to break a deadlock over issues such as Canadas dairy market and U.S. efforts to shield drug companies from generic competition.Trump wants to get a trade deal finalized by Dec. 1.Trumka also said of Trump: the things that hes done to hurt workers outpace what hes done to help workers,Ž arguing that Trump has not come through with an infrastructure program and has overturned regu-lations that will hurt us on the job.ŽAsked about the low unemployment rate and economic growth, Trumka said those are good, but wages have been down since the first of the year. Gas prices have been up since the first of the year. So, over-all, workers arent doing as well.ŽOn Monday, Trump touted the economy, saying Our country is doing better than ever before with unemployment setting record lows.Ž He added, The Worker in America is doing better than ever before.

[PABLO MARTINEZ MONSIVAIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Danielle PaquetteThe Washington PostBEIJING „ Chinese bil-lionaire and tech mogul Richard Qiangdong Liu returned to China on Monday, three days after Minneapolis police arrested and detained him on suspicion of sexual assault.Liu, the 45-yearold chief executive and founder of the e-commerce giant, was released Saturday from the Hennepin County Jail, with booking records showing no posted bail.He has been released without any charges, and without requirement for bail,Ž spokeswoman Tracy Yang told The Washington Post. Mr. Liu has returned to work in China.ŽThe Minneapolis Police Department had not yet decided Sunday if it would bring charges against Liu, spokesman John Elder told The Washington Post. The alleged assault would be a felony, authorities said, declining to provide further detail.Liu was in the United States on business when he faced questions about an unsubstantiated accu-sation,Ž according to a statement posted Sunday to the Chinese social network Weibo.The local police quickly determined there was no substance to the claim against Mr. Liu,Ž the statement read, and he was subsequently able to resume his business activities as originally planned.Ž declined to elaborate on the event.Lius lawyers in Minneapolis told The Post he denied any wrongdoing.Under these circumstances, based on our substantial experience in the criminal justice system in Minnesota, charges are highly unlikely in the future to be brought against our client,Ž attor-neys Earl Gray and Joseph Friedberg said in an email.Chinas Foreign Ministry said Monday it had launched an investigation into the circumstances of the chief executives arrest.Investors flinched slightly at the news Friday of Lius arrest, but stock value had rebounded by the end of the is among Chinas biggest online retailers and lauds itself as the first e-commerce company in the country to offer next-day delivery nationwide.Liu is known for pushing the company toward 100 percentŽ automation and speaking at global confer-ences about reducing the need for workers. is now testing drone deliveries in rural areas and recently unveiled a robot-run warehouse in Shanghai that can package 200,000 orders per day with the help of only four human engineers.Google announced in June that it had invested $550 million in the firm, which plans to expand in the United States and compete with Amazon. (Amazon chief executive Jeffrey Bezos owns The Washington Post.)The Minneapolis arrest wasnt the only harsh spotlight on Liu this year.An Australian court revealed in July that the chief executive had sought to conceal information in the wake of a sexual assault that happened after a 2015 party at his Australian residence, according to the New York Times. Longwei Xu, a property developer, was later con-victed of the crime. Liu, who was not accused of wrongdoing, had asked an Australian court to keep his name from public view, arguing association with the incident could hurt his business and marriage to the business executive Zhang Zetian, another celebrity figure.The judge denied his request.As aims to spread beyond Asia, Liu has lately sought to raise his profile among global business leaders.He attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland for the first time this year and shared parts of his life story at the annual alpine gathering of executives, politicians and Hollywood celebrities.Liu previously ran a chain of computer part stores. He told the Davos crowd he was inspired to start his online shopping platform in 2004 after an outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome hit China and threatened the health of his employees. I felt that e-commerce would be the trend for the future,Ž he said at the time.Billionaire leaves the US despite arrest

PAGE 11 | Tuesday, September 4, 2018 A11 ANOTHER OPINIONOpioid crisis grew unchecked ANOTHER OPINION ANOTHER OPINIONThe president who would bring back the Sedition Act OPINIONSteve Skaggs | Publisher Tom McNiff | Executive Editor Whitney Lehnecker | Digital Editor, Lifestyles Editor Tom McNiff, editor 352-365-8250 tom.mcniff@dailycommercial.comCongressional committees recently brought the top executives of opioid manufacturers to Washington to explain their role in Americas opioid epidemic. Sadly, the executives largely shifted the blame elsewhere. At its peak in 2012, physicians wrote 282 million opioid prescriptions „ enough for 8 in 10 Americans, Politico reported. Fortunately, the latest statistics suggest that the prescription surge has dramatically slowed. But the surge drove home a somber reality in this country: opioids have been Americas national pill. The fact is that other developed nations have not experienced the spikes in opioid use, opioid abuse and opioid-related overdoses that we have in this country. Thats led hundreds of cities and localities to sue opioid manufacturers „ in part to obtain funding to treat opioid abuse victims. If officials and authorities would have followed the money, it should have been easy to spot the tidal wave of opioid use. In a statement reported by the Hill website, Rep. Gregg Harper, a Mississippi Republican, questioned why drug distributors repeatedly failed to report suspicious orders of opioids or exercise effective controlsŽ as more and more pills flooded America. The answer seems pretty clear: because tremendous profits were being made by keeping quiet „ and keeping the pills flowing. The opioid epidemic was also fueled by a dangerous misperception that opioids carried low risks of addiction. To combat this, a trade association for the opioid manufacturers said they support policies that fully reveal the effects of opioids and decrease the likelihood of them being overprescribed. Its critical that our elected leaders dont overreact to what we now know about the need to control opioid use; they cant go to the other extreme of making opioids nearly impossible to obtain. Politico identified some of the potential unintended consequences of overreacting to the opioid crisis, it will increase the difficulty of obtaining relief for patients with valid pain issues „ and individuals nearing the end of life „ and distract us from focusing on the need for more non-drug therapies. These are all good points. But the bottom line hasnt changed. The reason why so many officials are now scrambling to act „ and at the risk of doing so in overzealous fashion „ is because too few of them took any action as the opioid crisis gathered momentum. Why werent questions asked? Why wasnt oversight done? Why werent whistleblowers taken seriously instead of being turned away, as reports suggest? When there is an explosion in the use of a particular drug, a governmental agency should know about it right away „ and it should report what it knows to Congress right away. The overdose epidemic is a widespread failure, and government must surely take its share of the blame for it. The Ocala Star-BannerThe president of the United States calls the press the enemy of the people.Ž Does he also have a problem with freedom of speech? In a recent tweet, President Donald Trump complained that if you google Trump news,Ž you see only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media.Ž That means that they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,Ž and that Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out.Ž In Trumps view, Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives,Ž and so controlling what we can & cannot see.Ž He thinks that is a very serious situationŽ and promises that it will be addressed!Ž These are serious charges. Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, has confirmed that the White House is taking a look atŽ whether Googles search engine should be regulated. The First Amendment applies to the government, not to the private sector. It forbids government from abridging the freedom of speech.Ž As Justice Antonin Scalia famously put it, the First Amendment does not allow public officials to suppress speech because of disapproval of the ideas expressed.Ž In Miami Herald Publishing Co. v. Tornillo, decided in 1974, the Supreme Court made it clear that if a publisher features one point of view and excludes another, the government is not allowed to step in to produce some kind of balance. The case involved an effort by a political candidate to take advantage of a state law giving him a right of replyŽ to a negative editorial. The court acknowledged the growing concentration of the publishing industry. Nonetheless, it ruled that the First Amendment did not permit government to correct what it saw as unfairness. For that reason, the right of replyŽ law was unconstitutional. True, we cannot exclude the possibility that a dominant search engine might be treated differently. Suppose that Google really did make a self-conscious effort to skew its results in a specific direction, using an algorithm designed to favor Democrats. Because of Googles unique position, it is not clear that courts would strike down a sufficiently neutral government response meant to prevent deliberate skewing. But thats all hypothetical. President Trump is focused on one thing: stories and news that he sees as BAD,Ž in the sense that they are critical of him. His complaint is not based on a serious study of Googles algorithm, but instead on a recent post from a conservative blog, PJ Media, whose author candidly acknowledges that her results are not scientific.Ž In other words, Trump has no evidence at all to justify a regulatory effort by the federal government toward addressingŽ Googles supposed effort to shut outŽ media that are Republican/ Conservative & Fair.Ž Nonetheless, his principal economic adviser is exploring whether to recommend or to go forward with regulation. In essence, the president of the United States is accusing Google of a form of sedition, and calling on his government to punish it. He might want to consider the text of the Virginia Resolution, written by James Madison in response to the Alien and Sedition Acts. Madison said that an attempt to restrict free speech more than any other, ought to produce universal alarm, because it is levelled against that right of freely examining public characters and measures, and of free communication among the people thereon, which has ever been justly deemed, the only effectual guardian of every other right.Ž That was true in 1798. Its no less true now. Cass R. Sunstein is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist. He is the author of The CostBenefit RevolutionŽ and coauthor of Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness.ŽWildfires are raging along the West Coast, devouring more than 820,000 acres of land, destroying over 1,000 homes and blanketing regions in thick black smoke and ash. Hawaii, still reeling from the Kilauea volcanos eruption and the resulting wildfire, was recently doused with a historic amount of rainfall from Hurricane Lane, which sent floodwaters surging and triggered landslides. Hurricane season is just entering its peak season.Tens of thousands of people have had to flee their homes at a moments notice to escape these and other disasters. Yet, according to a recent survey, 91 percent of animal guardians are not prepared for a natural disas-ter. That alone is an emergency.No matter where we live, none of us is immune to unfore-seen events „ and hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, blizzards, floods and fires can wreak havoc with little to no warning. In the chaotic moments between first learning that a disaster is imminent and finally evacuating, animals may be lost in the shuffle and left behind, with little chance of survival „ unless we make a plan now to protect them.Our animal family members are always safest with us, so before an emergency strikes, map out possible evacuation routes and identify places where you can stay with your animals if you must quickly leave your home. Ask family members and friends if they would be willing to accommodate you and your animals for a few days (offer to do the same for them, should the need arise), and research campgrounds and hotel chains to see which ones allow animals. Keep a list with the addresses and phone numbers of all your lodging options, or save them in your phone.Many people who have escaped disasters report running from their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs, or perhaps one memento that they were able to grab on their way out. In an emergency, there likely wont be time to round up all your animals sup-plies, so make sure youre ready to go by assembling an emergency kit for each animal and keeping it in an easily acces-sible spot.Include a carrier (for small animals), a leash and harness, bowls, towels, a favorite toy, a blanket, and enough food, bottled water and medication to last at least a week. Its a good idea to run a few evacua-tion drills, too (including in the middle of the night, without turning on the lights, to simu-late a power outage). Make sure all animals are microchipped and wearing collars with leg-ible identification tags.During any evacuation, transport small animals in secure carriers and keep larger dogs leashed and harnessed, as frightening sights and sounds and unfamiliar surroundings can cause them to bolt.Emergencies arent predict-able, so know your contingency options. If, for some reason, you cant evacuate, keep dogs, cats and other small animals indoors. Never leave them chained or penned outside, where they can drown in rising floodwaters or be killed by fall-ing debris. Horses and other animals cant outrun wildfires if theyre trapped, so dont leave them locked inside their stalls or otherwise confined and unable to flee.If authorities force you to evacuate without your animals, leave them indoors with access to upper floors. Dont crate them. Provide them with at least 10 days worth of dry food, and fill sinks, bathtubs and large containers with water. Put signs on windows and doors indicat-ing the number and species of animals inside to give rescue workers a better chance of saving them.Animals need all the help they can get during disasters, so try to help those who are left behind or who are lost or injured. If helping is impossi-ble, note their location and call authorities immediately. We cant know exactly when the next disaster will occur, but we can help ensure that all our family members survive it „ by making an emergency plan today.

But at the same time, there is a little biological clock that is not really working in your favor,Ž the No. 6-seeded Djokovic told the crowd after-ward. Sometimes, you just have to survive.ŽHe reached the quarterfinals for an 11th consecutive appear-ance in New York as he bids for a third U.S. Open champi-onship and 14th Grand Slam trophy. To add to his resume, though, he might need to beat Federer, who has won five of his mens-record 20 major titles at Flushing Meadows.Federer was scheduled to play 55th-ranked John Millman of Australia in the fourth round on Monday night. Like Sousa, Millman had never before made it this far at a Slam.Djokovic gets through on hot dayNovak Djokovic returns a shot to Joao Sousa during the fourth round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament Monday in New York. [ANDRES KUDACKI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Pete IacobelliThe Associated PressDARLINGTON, S.C. „ Brad Keselowski took nearly the entire season to break through to victory lane. Kyle Larson will have to wait a little bit longer. Keselowski overtook Larsons dominant car by a few feet coming out of the pits on the final caution, then took off on the restart to win the Southern 500 „ a satisfying moment in a season of strug-gles for the former NASCAR champion. Thats how this sport rolls,Ž said a smiling Keselowski. Thats how life rolls. Youve just got to keep pushing forward and make the most of the opportuni-ties and know the breaks will come your way just as they fell against you previously. Thats part of the perseverance it takes to be successful.Ž Larson knows all about per-severance. He had strongest car at Darlington on Sunday night, led a whopping 284 of 367 laps, yet left in third place behind Keselowski and his Team Penske teammate Joey Logano. It was the eighth time this year „ and 38th time in his five full-time Cup seasons „ Larson finished in the top five without winning. Larson led 200 laps in Bristols spring race and wound up second after Kyle Buschs textbook bump-and-run move five laps from the end last April. Larson led 101 laps at Kansas a month later u ntil eventual winner Kevin Harvick got him on a restart and Larsons Chip Ganassi Racing machine tangled with Ryan Blaney, costing him a shot at the win. I mean, this is my fifth Cup season, and Ive run second or third a lot,Ž said the 26-year-old Larson. I guess you get used to the disappointment or whatever you want to call it.Ž Larson sat for his late-night media session mostly without emotion, putting the best spin on his latest close call. He was happy to lead so many laps, to have a fast car, to know that his team may have the power to contend in the playoffs, where Larson has already clinched a spot in the 16-team field.  I feel like weve kind of been stale up until this week-end,Ž Larson said. We had a (recent) good test at Richmond. We learned some things with some different components, and I felt like it really helped our car there.Ž Next up comes the break-through to the checkered flag. Keselowski understands how difficult it is to run up front and not have the win to show for it. He believes his Penske Ford was good enough to win several times this year until critical errors on his part ruined the chance. Keselowski puts aside struggles with win See LEAGUE, B3 See NASCAR, B3 See NFL, B3 See DJOKOVIC, B3

The suspended Ohio State football coach puts it this way: My fault was in not taking action sooner against a trou-bled employee about his work-related issues.ŽThat now-fired assis-tant coach had been accused of past spousal violence as well as embarrassing sexual conduct, drug abuse and financial irresponsibility. Outside investigators found some of that affected his work life. Meyers comments about handling that and the ensuing debate about his punishment point to a bigger question in college athletics: To what extent are coaches responsible for policing their staffs off-field behavior?Here was Meyer „ a coach attentive enough to have staff remind players in advance about drunken-driving check-points around Columbus in July „ apologizing for not doing more about an assistant who had demonstrated trou-bling behavior for years, according to outside investigators. I should have been more demanding of him in the same way I am of my players, other staff members, and myself,Ž Meyer, who is suspended for three games but is allowed to resume coaching practices this week, said as he apologized on Aug. 22. His mea culpa comes just months after the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics recommended that the NCAA create minimum professional standards to ensure coaches are prepared for their lead-ership roles.Mastering Xs and Os is different than navigating sensitive personnel mat-ters. To address that, the commission envisions coaches in all sports get-ting the same training that department heads and other supervisors receive about responding to staff misconduct and other human resources issues, said Amy Perko, the CEO of the commis-sion, which advocates changes to support the educational mission of college sports.Ž In many cases, coaches have really never received any type of training on some of the more administrative aspects of their job,Ž Perko said. Yet as highly paid standard-bearers in big-time college sports, such coaches are often publicly viewed as responsible for their programs and the people in them, sometimes even beyond the scope of whats outlined in university policies and NCAA rules.Ohio State saga points to haziness of policing sta In this Aug. 22 photo, Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer, right, answers questions as athletic director Gene Smith listens during a news conference in Columbus, Ohio.

PAGE 15 | Tuesday, September 4, 2018 B3By Doug FergusonThe Associated PressNORTON, Mass. „ Bryson DeChambeau has found the right formula for the richest part of the PGA Tour season.Coming off a four-shot vic-tory last week in New Jersey, the 24-year-old physics major knows as the Mad ScientistŽ pulled away with three straight birdies to close out the front nine and kept his distance the rest of the way to win the Dell Technologies Championship on Monday.DeChambeau closed with a 4-under 67 for a two-shot victory on the TPC Boston, becoming only the second player in the 12 years of the lucrative FedEx Cup to win the opening two playoff events.Vijay Singh did it in 2008 before the points system was changed to create more vola-tility. Singh effectively had the $10 million prize wrapped up before the finale.DeChambeau, with his third victory this year, was assured of being the No. 1 seed when he gets to the Tour Championship, no matter what happens next week at the third playoff event outside Philadelphia.And he would appear to be a shoo-in to be one of U.S. cap-tain Jim Furyks three Ryder Cup picks to be announced Tuesday. The idea is to find the hottest player to fill out the team, and no one has been close to DeChambeau over the last two weeks.DeChambeau, who started the year at No. 99 in the world, moved past Rory McIlroy to No. 7. He finished at 16-under 268 and made $1,620,000 for the second straight week.Starting the final round one shot behind Abraham Ancer, and among 10 players within four shots of the lead, DeChambeau had a two-putt birdie from 50 feet on No. 7, took the lead with a 12-foot birdie putt on the 220-yard eighth hole, and then hit his approach to 6 feet to a back right pin at No. 9 for his third straight birdie.Cameron Smith of Austra-lia tried to make a run at him with a pair of late birdies, but DeChambeau answered with a birdie on No. 15 to keep his lead at two shots. Needing an eagle to catch him on the par-5 18th, Smith came up short and into the hazard and made bogey. Justin Rose birdied three of his last four holes for a 68 and wound up alone in second.Ancer couldnt keep pace, dropping three shots in the tough four-hole stretch early on the back nine. A birdie on the final hole would have given the 27-year-old Mexican a tie for third and a reasonable chance at going to the Tour Championship. He also came up short into the hazard and made bogey. The small consolation for Ancer was moving from No. 92 to No. 56, which at least made him among the top 70 who advance to the BMW Championship at Aronimink next week.A few others also were happy to have another week left in a long season.Peter Uihlein, the former U.S. Amateur champion in his first full season on the PGA Tour, birdied his last three holes for a 68. He played with Keith Mitchell, another PGA Tour rookie, who birdied his last two holes for a 69. Both moved into the top 70.Matt Kuchar failed to advance beyond the second playoff event for the first time in 10 years, meaning he wont get another chance to state his case as a potential Ryder Cup pick. Furyk makes his fourth selection after the BMW Championship.The likely choices would seem to be DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods „ they finished Nos. 9, 10 and 11 when qualifying ended for eight automatic berths after the PGA Cham-pionship. Woods closed with a 71 and tied for 24th. Mickel-son, who has played on every Ryder Cup team since 1995, boosted his case by winning a World Golf Championships event in Mexico in March, and he made nine birdies Monday in a closing round of 63.So fortunate also that its the day before the Ryder Cup picks, although I dont feel that should be a bearing,Ž Mickelson said. I think you have to look at the big picture through the course of the year statistically. ... But it certainly doesnt hurt.ŽHideki Matsuyama made seven birdies in 10 holes before he cooled and shot 65, though it at least made it easier for the Japanese star to try to get to the Tour Championship. Jordan Spieth still has work to do. He was one shot out of the lead on the front nine until a bogey on the par-5 seventh hole, and three more bogeys in five holes to start the back nine. He ended by missing a 6-foot eagle putt and had to settle for a 70, moving him up to only No. 27.The top 30 make it to East Lake for the Tour Championship, where everyone has a mathematical chance at the $10 million prize.It doesnt take a degree in physics to figure out that DeChambeau will have the best odds of all.DeChambeau makes it 2 straight wins in playo sBryson DeChambeau tees off on the third hole during the “ nal round of the Dell Technologies Championship golf tournament at TPC Boston on Monday in Norton, Mass. [MICHAEL DWYER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] When drivers dont capitalize on those opportunities, it can lead to doubts about when theyll come around again, Kes-elowski said. You just never know when youre going to get a winning race car again,Ž he said. You hope its every week. You enter every weekend thinking that. But you get to the race track and its not there, you think, what if I never get another car capable of winning.Ž Keselowski recalls his early days in the Cup series when the machines he had were not capable of keeping up. When that changed, Keselowskis career and confidence took off. Theres almost a point in time you take that for granted,Ž the 34-year-old driver said. You start to see that slip away and you think to yourself, Oh, my God, this could be it.Ž Thats why the win at Darlington, he said, was so important and in his words, refreshing.Ž They recharge your batter-ies so much because the season is such a death march, especially when things arent going well,Ž he explained. Larson sounds like his batteries are still fully charged. Hes confident that if his team brings more cars to tracks like the one he had at Darlington, good things will happen. Kes-elowski sees that, too.

[TERRY RENNA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]Those are enough issues to grab attention away from Phillys quarterback situa-tion, as well as the progress of the five first-round QB draft choices expected to make their debuts sooner or later. Or from the return from injuries of Aaron Rodgers, J.J. Watt, Richard Sherman, Deshaun Watson, David Johnson and Odell Beckham Jr., to name a few.Or Jon Grudens return to an NFL sideline in Oakland. Plus, Adam Vinatieris pur-suit of the career points and field goals marks.Whats ahead through the penultimate day of the 2018 calendar? RULE CHANGES The preseason has been dominated, even overridden, by discussion of and doubts about the helmet rule.Ž Basically, any player on offense or defense lowering his head and making contact with any part of the helmet is subject to a 15-yard penalty, a fine, and even an ejection. Its a player safety adjustment for which the goal long term is to make the game safer and take out some of these hits that should not be part of the game,Ž says Giants owner John Mara, a member of the competition committee that recommends rules changes to the owners.The concerns on many levels focus on players adjusting to the tackling requirements and officials mastering such calls at full speed. The fix to the phrasing of the catch rule should eliminate the kind of calls „ on Jesse James, Dez Bryant et al „ many found bogus. The other major rule alter-ation is on kickoffs, where coverage team players no longer can take a running start, and there are regulations on where kick team players can be overall and how they can block.This is certainly a way of trying to keep the kickoff in the game and attempting to cut down on high-speed col-lisions,Ž Mara says. There are a lot of us who dont want to take the kickoff out unless we cant find ways to make it safer. It is our most danger-ous play.Ž NATIONAL ANTHEMAnticipation of whether play-ers will demonstrate during the national anthem again this year is high, fueled in part by reactions from President Trump. Players argue that their mes-sage about the need for change in communities nationwide has been misconstrued by the presi-dent and his followers, including many team owners. With the unilateral policy banning players from any on-field protests during the anthem on hold as owners and players discuss the issue, no one can be sure whats ahead. Everyone can be sure the topic wont disappear. NFLFrom Page B1The other quarterfinal on the bottom half of the draw will be 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori against 2014 champion Marin Cilic or No. 10 David Goffin. Nishikori advanced in the afternoon with a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory over Philipp Kohlschreiber.Djokovic, who is coming off a title at Wimbledon, wasnt at the U.S. Open a year ago, when he missed the last half of the season because of an injured right elbow that eventually was surgically repaired this February.Asked whether he thought during that time away about returning to the height of his powers, Djokovic replied: I have imagined. I have hoped for. I have prayed for that.ŽHe improved to 28-0 at the U.S. Open against opponents ranked outside the top 50, and heres another reason it wasnt all that surprising the way things went Monday: Djokovic is now 5-0 against Sousa, taking all 14 sets theyve played against each other.The heat, though, is much tougher on Djokovic, who showed the same blank expression, rosy cheeks and sweat-soaked shirt as during his first-round match last week. That was the first time in tournament history that the U.S. Open created an extreme heat policy for mens matches „ they can opt for a 10-minute break between the third and fourth sets „ similar to whats standard on the womens tour, when there can be a delay between the second and third sets.There was that sort of respite during No. 20 Naomi Osakas 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 win against No. 26 Aryna Sabalenka, a matchup between two powerful players seeking a first Grand Slam quar-terfinal appearance. The 20-year-old Osaka was already the first Japa-nese woman to get to the fourth round in New York since 2004.Also into the quarterfinals: 2017 runner-up Madison Keys, who overwhelmed No. 29 Dominika Cibulkova 6-1, 6-3 thanks to a 25-7 edge in winners. DJOKOVICFrom Page B1 on having three newcomers and three second-year play-ers learning how to mesh while honing the details of coordina-tor Todd Washs 4-3 scheme.Nowadays, they feel like theyve figured out each other and the playbook. And in a Super Bowl-or-bust season for Jacksonville, the talent-laden group plans to do whatever it takes to hoist the Lombardi Trophy and join a list of revered defenses that have carried teams to championships.Every great defense has won it all,Ž Pro Bowl linebacker Telvin Smith said. That is what we want to be. A great defense is not mediocre. It is not to say you won a couple (division) championships. No, we want to say we dominated the world. That is the next step.ŽThe Jaguars finished second in the NFL in yards (286.1 per game), points (15.8), sacks (55), takeaways (33) and interceptions (21) last year. Players wanted more and were admit-tedly disappointed with the final rankings.Coach Doug Marrone has since used it as motivation, publicly and privately needling his defenders.Make no mistake about it, I like it when people have a chip on their shoulder,Ž Marrone said. I have a boulder on my shoulder.ŽThe Jaguars feel they have plenty to prove, mostly because of how last season ended.Jacksonville squandered a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter of the AFC championship game at New England. The vaunted defense gave up an 85-yard touchdown drive „ the key play was a 21-yard completion on third and 18 that left players openly ques-tioning the scheme „ and then allowed Tom Brady and Danny Amendola to hook up again for another score late.I would be lying if I said that didnt keep me up all offseason,Ž said safety Tashaun Gipson, who blamed himself for the rare conversion. Got lax. ... I have to make that play.Ž Even though they dont want to look back, the Jaguars will try to make amends.Jacksonville returns 12 of its top 14 defenders from 2017, including six Pro Bowl selections. The only guys missing are veteran linebacker Paul Posluszny, who retired from the NFL after 11 seasons, and nickel cornerback Aaron Colvin, who signed a four-year, $34 mil-lion contract with division rival Houston.Even without them, the Jags will have eight starters on that side of the ball who have made the Pro Bowl in the last four years. Thats talent at every level of the defense, a mix of youth and experience.All-Pro defensive end Calais Campbell is coming off a career year that included 14 sacks and is the undisputed leader of what is widely considered the most disruptive front in the league. Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (20 sacks and an NFL-leading 10 forced fumbles in two seasons) is a budding star. Malik Jackson is one of the most complete defensive tackles in the league. Fellow inside guy Marcell Dareus, acquired from Buffalo in late October, helped shore up a shaky run defense. Jacksonville ranked 30th in the league without him and eighth with him.Speedy linebackers Smith and Myles Jack benefit most from the star-studded D-line, free to chase ball-carriers and make plays all over the field. Smith and Jack had a hand in three of Jacksonvilles seven defensive touchdowns in 2017.The secondary scored just once, but was nonetheless a big part of the groups success. LEAGUEFrom Page B1

PAGE 17 | Tuesday, September 4, 2018 B5TODAYS WORKOUTPush your limits with deep, weighted squats By Marlo Alleva More Content NowWhen it comes to exercising, there are different levels of intensity, whether its your level of ability or your desire for the day. Some days light and easy is better than nothing; other days you need something a little more intense to be that cherry on top! Our move today is a deep, weighted squat. And this move is your cherry on top when it comes to squatting. You will need a set of medium hand weights. This move will be working your entire lower body. Glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, and your core will be getting toned as well … due to keeping your body balanced during your up and down squatting movement. Begin this exercise by placing your feet just outside your hip width. Having your toes facing forward, shift your weight onto your heels. Holding your hand weights up close to your chest, rotate your hips forward slightly to engage your core. Now, you are ready to move. Begin to bend in the knees and drop your rear end into a sitting movement. Keeping your knees behind your toes and your chest tall, proceed to go as deep as you can in this squat. Once you reach your deepest point, push yourself to go another inch or two. This squat is to push you past your limits and test your endurance. Once you reach your fullest deep squat, slowly return to the start. The point in pushing yourself a little deeper than normal is to challenge those muscles a little more than usual. And, truth be told, we are probably cheating ourselves slightly during our regular squatting motion by not going as low as we should. Keeping this motion on a slightly slower count, shoot for at least eight to 10 squats per set, for at least three to five sets. If the hand weights become too much, simply discard them and continue the move with your own body weight resistance. This particular exercise is perfect all on its own, but is also great as a finisher move in a lower-body routine. Marlo Alleva does deep, weighted squats. [SCOTT WHEELER/THE LEDGER] By Martha Bebinger Kaiser Health News / WBURIt was Bea Duncan who answered the phone at 2 a.m. on a January morning. Her son Jeff had been caught using drugs in a New Hampshire sober home and was being kicked out. Bea and her husband, Doug, drove north that night nine years ago to pick him up. On the ride back home, to Natick, Massachusetts, the parents delivered an ultimatum: Jeff had to go back to rehab, or leave home. Jeff chose the latter, Bea said. She remembers a lot of yelling, cursing and tears as they stopped the car, in the dead of night, a few miles from the house. It was really, really difficult to actually just drop him off in a parking lot on our way home and say, you made the decision „ no rehab „ so we made the decision, no home,Ž Bea said. It was exquisitely difficult.Ž But it was not unexpected. Doug Duncan said many parents had told him to expect this moment. Your son, he remembered them saying, will have to hit rock bottom; youre going to have to kick him out of the house.Ž Two torturous days later, Jeff Duncan came home. While he returned to rehab, the Duncans decided their approach wasnt working. They sought help, eventually connecting with a program that stresses empathy: CRAFT or Community Reinforcement and Family Training. There was more compassion and Wow, this is really difficult for you, more open questions to him instead of dictating what he should and should not behave like,Ž said Bea. The Duncans said the training helped them shift from chaos to calm. I started to feel an immense sense of relief,Ž Bea said. I stopped feeling like I had to be a private investigator and controlling mom. I could kind of walk side to side with him on this journey, instead of feeling like I had to take charge of it.Ž For the Duncans, the approach meant they could switch from enforcing family consequences, like kicking Jeff out of the house, to supporting him as he faced others, like losing a job. It worked: Bea and Doug helped Jeff stick to his recovery. Hes 28 now and has been sober for nine years. Rock bottom can be deadly Many drug users say, in hindsight, they appreciated being forced into treatment. But studies show that a compassionate approach and voluntary treatment are the more effective ways to engage drug users in recovery and keep them alive. Thats a critical consideration for families in this era of fentanyl, which can shut down breathing in seconds. The concept of letting their children hit bottom is not the best strategy because in hitting bottom they may die,Ž said Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. But desperate parents often dont know how to avoid hitting bottom with their children as the Duncans did on that dark, frigid January morning. They have found ways to help: Doug is a parent coach through the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, which is now collaborating with the Grayken Center for Addiction at Boston Medical Center. The collaboration will close a gap in services for families caught up in the opioid epidemic, said Grayken Centers director, Michael Botticelli, who served as drug czar in the Obama administration. They dont call this a family disease for no good reason,Ž Botticelli said. The whole design of these services [is] to promote tools and information for families so they know how to approach a situation and can heal.Ž There is no uniform path to healing for the drug user or parents, and no widespread agreement on the best approach for families. Joanne Peterson, who founded the parent support network Learn to Cope, said there are reasons why some parents ask older children to leave the house „ if there are younger children at home or if the parents dont feel safe. So it depends on what tough love means,Ž Peterson said. She applauds the Grayken Center for expanding access to parent coaches, but we also need more professional help.Ž Peterson said she routinely hears from parents who cant find counselors and doctors who understand their daily traumas. Compassion or enablement? Some critics suggest the CRAFT model is too soft, that it enables drug use. Thats a misconception,Ž said Fred Muench, president of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. CRAFT is authoritative parenting, creating a sense of responsibility in the child and at the same time saying I am here for you, I love you, Im going to help you, but I cant help you avoid negative consequences if youre not looking to do that on your own.Ž The parent coaching extends beyond periods of crisis. More compassion in the home fits the shift away from criminalizing addiction „ toward accepting and treating it as a chronic medical condition. If a child had cancer, parents wouldnt disengage with them or be angry with them,Ž said Botticelli. So I do think it aligns our scientific understanding that addiction is a disease and not a moral failure.Ž This is part of a partnership between WBUR, NPR and Kaiser Health News.Families seek compassionate approach to treating addicted loved ones Opioid empath y ZAK DENNIS/GATEHOUSE MEDIA There was more compassion and Wow, this is really di cult for you, more open questions to him instead of dictating what he should and should not behave like.ŽBea Duncan WORK LATE-NIGHT EMAILS ARE UNHEALTHYA recent Virginia Tech study showed that the expectation of checking work email a er hours harms health of workers and families.Ž According to the research, when employees are expected to monitor email during non-work hours it can lead to anxiety and adversely a ect health. The study suggested that employers reduce those expectations, or at least establish boundaries and communicate those policies clearly. SUPPLEMENTSMIXING WITH MEDS IS RISKYDid you know if you are taking medications for an existing condition, the supplements you mix with these medications could actually be hindering your overall health instead of helping it? Its a common occurrence, said Dr. Michael Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic and Persona. Before taking any supplement, be sure to ask a doctor about how it will a ect the medications you may be taking. KIDS HEALTHEAT YOUR VEGGIES!According to a recent New York Times article, Plates illustrated with pictures of vegetables spurred children to eat more of them.Ž The article discusses a study published in JAMA Pediatrics where the vegetable consumption of day-care preschoolers increased more than 36 percent with pictures of fruits and vegetables on segmented plates. „ Brandpoint HEALTH




DEAR ABBY: The wife of "Headed for the Open Road" (June 25) will never forgive herself if she doesn't accompany her newly retired husband on his open-road adventures. After working for 40 years and retiring from my third job, my life partner and I went everywhere and did everything together. Three and a half months after my retirement, he passed away suddenly. I would never have forgiven myself if I hadn't experienced our frozen Jeep in Yellowstone or the eerie silence on the edge of the Hoh Rain Forest in western Washington state. That wife needs to get off her duff and have the adventures of a lifetime -unless, of course, she doesn't want to get closer to her husband. That would be a shame. -RICK T. IN CALIFORNIA DEAR RICK: Thanks for writing and sharing your experiences. Many other passionate travelers responded, offering guidance to "Headed" in making his dreams of adventure a reality. Read on: DEAR ABBY: Maybe the problem is the idea of a road trip, not the notion of travel. Perhaps he should suggest they go on a cruise or vacation in a nice resort somewhere. She might warm up more to travel if it sounded like a vacation rather than a long drive. And cruises are great -no daily packing/unpacking, opportunities to "dress up" (if you want), dancing, nightly entertainment, moonlit walks, not to mention days in exotic ports around the world. By the way, my husband and I -retirees in our 70s -have just returned from a ve-week road trip in France. Far more appealing than seeing Mt. Rushmore again! -TRAVELER, WITH A CAPITAL "T" DEAR ABBY: The husband could rent an RV to travel. His wife doesn't want to be cooped up, and an RV would have a living room, couch, TV/DVD, an onboard toilet, separate bedroom and a small kitchen. In other words, it would be like she's still at home, only moving. The couple could even arrange other transportation at their destinations. -TOM Z. IN LAS VEGAS DEAR ABBY: My husband and I were married 10 years when we discussed the destinations on our travel bucket lists. Mine included a road trip to Utah to see the canyons; he wanted a cruise to the war memorials in Hawaii. Neither of us was interested in the other's trip, so he took his adult daughter on the cruise, and three girlfriends and I took the road trip. We both had wonderful times, took tons of photos to share, and came back with lots to talk about. My motto is, don't put off something you really want to do. -CLAIRE G. OUT WEST DEAR ABBY: Maybe they could take shorter trips if her objection is the car travel. Or they could y to a destination, rent a car and see the sights. They could even take a train trip across the country. That wife should be grateful they are both physically able to travel and spend precious time together. -WISH I COULD IN TEXASDEAR ABBY: As a minister, I have advised women like Headeds wife. I said, Eventually one of you will get sick. If its him, you may spend years caring for him, regretting that you never took the trip. And if youre the one whose health fails, he will put you in a nursing home and take the trip! Most of them relented, took the trip and enjoyed it. One couple lived another 15 years and told me repeatedly they appreciated my advice. -REV. JIM IN PHOENIXDear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

YESTERDAYS SOLUTION BRIDGE CRYPTOQUOTE HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DIVERSIONS HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TUESDAY, SEPT. 4, 2018:This year you naturally zero in on your friends and associates. You also are determined to create much more of what you want. Once you are committed, you could be difcult to stop. If you are single, your inner circle of friends will expand. In the later part of the year, someone of interest heads in your direction. If you are attached, the two of you could become quite the team when youre both focused. Your sweetie lights up your life. CANCER appreciates how logical you can be.ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Your positive energy warms up many of your associates. The unexpected keeps the moment exciting. Use your creativity to light up your day. Build on more solid ground. Someone could think you are overly serious, when really you are just determined. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You speak your mind, and others respond with a great deal of energy. You still experience a surprise when several associates express their ideas. You might want to get fewer opinions from this group. You do not always want agreement, either. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You might be energized from recent events. Slow down and be practical. Look clearly at an aspect of your life that you wish could be different. Listen to news more openly, and decide to make an adjustment in this area to improve the quality of your life. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) The Moon drops into your sign, adding to your allure and magnetism. At the same time, you could experience fatigue and some moodiness. You might go through your natural ups and downs more rapidly than normal. Know that everything will work out. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You might want to lie back and observe more. You might catch a whiff of a matter that needs to be kept hush-hush. Be smart, ask little, and simply be aware. You wont get all of the facts or the full tale today, but you will soon enough. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Zero in on your priorities. You might be able to pull white rabbits from a black hat. There could be an upset in your day, so stay centered. You know what you are doing. A loved one might be overly serious. Be sensitive to this persons needs. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You have a way about you that attracts others. You seem to be the centerpiece of many peoples days. Screen calls, and handle only what you must. The more you achieve, the more relaxed you will be. Take some time to network. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) If you hit a snafu, reach out to the experts. You also might want to do some research. Do not let this obstacle stop you. Gain a better sense of direction by detaching. Trust your judgment, despite another persons negativity. You know what to do. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21) Relate closely to a loved one or key associate. You want this person to be in the know, and you would appreciate knowing what is on his or her mind. You seek to strengthen the bond. You also need to ask an outside party for his or her opinion. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22JAN. 19) You might not be aware of your mood. You could feel less than upbeat when dealing with daily matters. Once you know where you stand, you might consider taking part of the day or several days off. Clearly, your relationships are being impacted. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Your ability to get past a problem amazes others. Your mood could be off, or you might be distracted. Let go of a hassle, at least for several hours. You might need to dote on yourself and worry less about others right now. Take a few days off. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Try to understand what is being said to you, as it isnt as clear as youd like it to be. The source of this info might be acting unusual. Listen and decide on the most effective way of responding. You do not need to go mum or avoid this person.

Truman addressed the nation from the Japanese peace treaty conference in San Francisco in the rst live, coastto-coast television broadcast.
