George Stoia Detroit Free Press Published 2:03 p.m. UTC Jul 16, 2018 Which is the better NFL combo — Michigan's Tom Brady and Devin Funchess, or Michigan State's Kirk Cousins and Le'Veon Bell? It's time to settle this debate ... on EA Sports' "Madden NFL 19." The Michigan-Michigan State rivalry is one of college football's best. But who has the superior group on Madden 19? We put together projected rosters of former Michigan and Michigan State players currently in the NFL, placing them in positions based on their overall rating. (We changed a few players positions to fill specific holes. Example: Connor Cook has moved from quarterback to left tackle due to his 6-foot-4 stature and 33 inch arm length.) With that said, Michigan's team would be the clear favorite to win this virtual game. Quarterback Brady leads the way for the Wolverines, with his top target being wide receiver Funchess. Brady is without a great running back, with Fitzgerald … [Read more...] about Michigan vs. Michigan State football: Who wins in ‘Madden NFL 19’?

Health dairy diet and nutrition Consuming dairy products such as milk and cheese could cut the risk of heart disease and stroke, according to a study that challenged the commonly held belief that dairy is harmful. Marcia Otto, lead author of the study and assistant professor of epidemiology, human genetics and environmental sciences at UTHealth School of Public Health, said in a statement: "Our findings not only support, but also significantly strengthen, the growing body of evidence which suggests that dairy fat, contrary to popular belief, does not increase risk of heart disease or overall mortality in older adults." One fatty acid present in dairy was actually found to potentially lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, particularly stroke, she said. Dairy products were not found to harm cardiovascular health, according to a recent study.

Health Cannabis psychiatry As states legalize cannabis, the day-to-day challenges presented by lifting such bans need ironing out. One such problem is how long to wait before driving after lighting up. It’s a question that researchers at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) aim to answer with a new study. And they’re inviting members of the public to help them find out. Dr. Tom Marcotte, professor of psychiatry and co-director of the CMCR, told ABC15: "If you smoked this morning, are you impaired throughout the day? Are you impaired for a couple of hours? Or are you not impaired? We're trying to answer that.” Compared with drink-driving, it is harder to pinpoint whether THC (the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis) can impact a person’s ability to drive as levels of the cannabinoid can be present in a user’s system but have no effect, said Marcotte.
