Ford Fiesta ST
Last week, I had a chance to test-drive the new 2014 Ford Fiesta ST, Ford Focus ST and Ford C-Max, Ford’s hybrid car. As you can tell from the headline, my favorite of the three was the Fiesta, although the C-Max blew me away in terms of quiet power and gee-whiz visual controls. But it […]
Enthusiasts have been waiting, like, forever for next-generation TVs sporting OLED technology. Yes, Sony has had small-screen OLED TVs on the market for years, but now LG has introduced a 55-inch OLED screen. And if that’s not enough it’s curved too.

From Marion Jones to Barry Bonds to Lance Armstrong to Alex Rodriguez, the explosion in the use of performance enhancing drugs (PED) is proving to be an unstoppable force.

You’re about to mention a name and suddenly realize you can’t recall it. “It’s at the tip of my tongue,” you mutter embarrassedly. “Happens to me all time,” a sympathetic listener responds. You’re suffering from “mild cognitive impairment” (MCI). And so do a billion others. While one could easily dismiss […]
They were first spotted during the 70s in that ahead-of-the-curve state California.
