With new allies and approaches, California lawmakers try again to confront high prescription drug prices

Monday 11:45 GMT

Less rowdy than the sputtered push for single-payer healthcare and less fraught than the battle over Obamacare’s future, the concern over the cost of prescription drug prices has been overshadowed for the past year by the marquee healthcare battles gripping Sacramento and Washington.

Much of the action centers on legislation that recalls a failed 2016 bill to require more disclosure around prescription prices, with lobbying efforts tracing familiar battle lines — labor unions, health plans and consumer groups facing off against drug manufacturers.

Songs for the eclipse – 10 of the best

Monday 11:45 GMT

At the same time, its role as a lyric-free instrumental underscores an enduring point: watching an eclipse is beyond words.

Black Hole Sun proved evocative and catchy enough to become a rock radio smash in 1994, as well as one of Soundgarden’s most enduring songs. The video for the single went a more literal route, depicting a garishly bright sky, luring people into a world of flames.

Nicole Krauss: ‘The self is more or less an invention from beginning to end’

Monday 06:04 GMT

For Nicole, the struggle to find a new form for her writing was echoed in her need to find new forms for her life and I saw the reflection of that in Epstein, who comes to change much later in life, but with no less desire.

Nicole is a novelist, struggling with her new book; she leaves her husband and children behind in Brooklyn and heads for the same hotel. The book is a meditation on loss and transformation and an investigation of the mysteries of art and literature and family.

The Dodgers' front office swings for the fences with acquisition of Curtis Granderson

Sunday 20:55 GMT

Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi went deep in extra innings for the second time in less than three weeks Friday night, picking up October-honed outfielder Curtis Granderson from the New York Mets for virtually nothing, and now can there be any question?

Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino: The crazy Diego Maradona who inspires me

Sunday 20:55 GMT

One crazy morning by the coast in 1994 when Pochettino and Maradona were supposed to be sharing a room as team-mates of Newell’s Old Boys, the World Cup-winning hero of a nation was nowhere to be seen.

Nobody knew about Diego and at lunchtime it was breaking news on the television … Diego shoots journalists in Buenos Aires!.

Beach Drive rehab progress: Nearly 2 miles of roadway rebuilt, 4.6 miles to go

Sunday 20:55 GMT

When a newly reconstructed portion of Beach Drive reopens at the end of the month, the road will be so shiny and smooth, drivers might almost forget about the painful year-long closure.

For example, drivers coming from Maryland on southbound Beach Drive will need to exit onto Military Road, turn left on Nebraska Avenue, take a left on Connecticut Avenue and another left on Tilden to continue their trip on Beach Drive.

How Floyd Mayweather Jr. transformed from 'Pretty Boy' to 'Money'

Sunday 20:55 GMT

Part of the novelty of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor fighting is the fact that McGregor, cognizant or not, has followed the Mayweather road to riches.

At the New York tour stop last month, Mayweather ran offstage to deliver a bear hug to DiBella and told his children, “I told this man years ago I’d never lose, that I’d make all this money.

The South Bronx Boxing Gym at the Center of Gentrification

Sunday 20:55 GMT

Consolatie Uwera, who works as the outreach coordinator for the Sauti Yetu Center for African Women in the South Bronx, was curious about a new gym located behind a simple painted word on a brick wall in the middle of a mess of parking lots and industrial buildings: “BOXING.”

Part of Mr. Rubenstein’s efforts now include investments in almost half a dozen businesses that have popped up in anticipation of the development — Filtered Coffee; La Grata pizzeria; 9J, a boutique owned in part by the Bronx designer Jérôme LaMaar; Famous Nobodys, a streetwear label; as well as cultural organizations like Bronx Artspace and the Bronx Museum.

Terence Crawford blasts Indongo in three to unify junior welterweight titles

Monday 03:20 GMT

Terence Crawford took all the drama out of his fight against Julius Indongo, and he did it fast at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Energized by his huge home-state following 45 minutes from his Omaha base, Crawford stopped Julius Indongo in the third round Saturday night to claim all four major belts at 140lbs. The fight was the first four-belt unification bout since 2004, when Bernard Hopkins stopped Oscar De La Hoya to claim all the belts in the 160lb division.

Yankees Hold Off Red Sox, Without Chapman Shutting the Door

Monday 03:20 GMT

After Chapman was stripped of his job as their closer, the Yankees rode an early home run from the rookie Tyler Austin, a stout start from C. C. Sabathia, some harrowing late work from their reconfigured bullpen and a clutch throw from catcher Gary Sanchez to a 4-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.

A taut drama that Chapman watched from the bullpen — put the Yankees four games behind the division-leading Red Sox in the American League East.

The night Captain Beefheart drove me into the hills in a red Corvette

Monday 03:20 GMT

I was living with a music business lawyer, Robert Lee (he of the Virginia Plain lyric); he was acting for Richard Branson who was desperate to sign Captain Beefheart to Virgin records.

He went straight out and blew most of the advance on a red Corvette Stingray in which we roared into the hills to listen to a sax player he wanted to sign.
