Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 11:40 AM EST Dec 14, 2018 Auburn Hills — It’s been a busy first couple of months on the job for Bernard Condevaux. It tends to be that way during the early part of the basketball season and Condevaux, the Detroit Pistons’ new medical director, had a significant scare before the regular season even got started. During a preseason matchup at Little Caesars Arena, guard Reggie Jackson exited the game and felt something wasn’t quite right. With Jackson’s injury history in the past two seasons, any abnormality is cause for concern — and that put the Pistons’ new medical team on high alert. Condevaux and head athletic trainer Jim Scholler assessed the injury and Jackson was taken to the locker room for further examination.

Herndon Dec. 6, 2018 WASHINGTON — The plan was straightforward: After years of being challenged by President Trump and others about a decades-old claim of Native American ancestry, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts would take a DNA test to prove her stated family origins in the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. But nearly two months after Ms. Warren released the test results and drew hostile reactions from prominent tribal leaders, the lingering cloud over her likely presidential campaign has only darkened. Conservatives have continued to ridicule her. More worrisome to supporters of Ms. Warren’s presidential ambitions, she has yet to allay criticism from grass-roots progressive groups, liberal … [Read more...] about Elizabeth Warren Stands by DNA Test.

WASHINGTON — Nats fans have a brand new concession stand to test out, featuring a rotating lineup of female chefs. The concept, called Grace’s Kitchen, replaces Mike Isabella’s G sandwich stand. The Nationals cut ties with the D.C. restaurateur and “Top Chef” alum after a former manager in his company filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Isabella and his business partners. Isabella denied the allegations. Grace’s Kitchen is named after first lady Grace Coolidge, a known baseball fan. News about the new concept was announced Thursday morning on Tommy McFly’s local radio show. The Washington Post reports the first chefs up to bat at the stand are Hank’s Oyster Bar founder Jamie Leeds and “The Chew” co-host Carla Hall. Leeds — who also runs Hank’s Pasta Bar and Hank’s Cocktail Bar — will serve a shrimp po’boy with coleslaw. Hall is dishing out a Nashville hot chicken sandwich — which … [Read more...] about Female chefs’ stand replaces Isabella concession at Nats Park
