Reports: Patriots meet with QB Jackson twice

Sports
The New England Patriots reportedly have met with quarterback Lamar Jackson of Louisville twice, leading to speculation that the Pats might be interested in making him the heir apparent to Tom Brady. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Patriots hosted Jackson in Foxborough, Mass., recently, and on Wednesday Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated wrote that New England also held a private workout with Jackson in South Florida. Vrentas said the latter session was conducted by Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Rapoport claimed New England is "intrigued and impressed" with Jackson, even though scouts are mixed in their opinions in how Jackson's unquestionable skills will fit into an NFL offense. New England has the 23rd and 31st picks in the first round of the draft on...
The Pegan Diet Combines Two Trendy Diets—So Is It Twice as Healthy?

The Pegan Diet Combines Two Trendy Diets—So Is It Twice as Healthy?

Health
Cleveland Clinic doctor and bestselling author Mark Hyman, MD, appeared on CBS News earlier this week championing an eating pattern he calls the “pegan diet.” And although this sounds like it could be a diet based in religion or witchcraft, it’s really just a combination of two already well-known lifestyles: paleo and vegan.On the surface, paleo and vegan diets may seem like they’re on opposite ends of the spectrum: The former is meat-heavy, based on the concept that if a hunter-gatherer caveman didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either. The latter, on the other hand, includes no animal products whatsoever.So what does it mean to combine the two—and is it an overall good eating strategy? We dug into the diet a little further, and checked in with Cynthia Sass, RD, Health’s contributing nutrition

TRAPPIST-1 twice as old as our solar system

TRAPPIST-1 twice as old as our solar system

Science
Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Astronomers have narrowed in on a more precise estimate of the TRAPPIST-1 system.Scientists believe the star and its exoplanets are between 5.4 and 9.8 billion years old -- as much as twice as old as our solar system. The sun was born 4.5 billion years ago.In February, NASA announced the discovery of seven Earth-sized planets orbiting TRAPPIST-1, an ultra-cool dwarf located 40 light-years away. Three of the seven planets are located within the star's habitable zone.The habitable zone, however, doesn't guarantee habitability, it simply defines a range of orbital distances at which water could in theory exist as a liquid.Because all seven of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets are bunched close to their host star, some astronomers have suggested solar flares could burn away any liquid...
