first_img Top Stories RB: Andre Ellington, David Johnson, Stepfan Taylor, Kerwynn Williams, Marion Grice, Paul Lasike, Robert HughesGrade: 3 starsThe Cardinals have had less-talented running back groups in their history. They’ve also had groups that were more proven. Entering this season, Arizona’s group has combined to rush for 1,938 yards — in their careers — with Andre Ellington’s 1,312 leading the way by a large margin. As of now, the expectation is for Ellington to once again assume his role as the number one option. He had a down 2014 after playing most of the season hurt, finishing with just 660 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and 371 yards with one score as a receiver. He’s healthy now and figures to look more like he did as a rookie, when he was a dynamic playmaker, than he did as a sophomore, where he appeared rather limited. The depth behind Ellington is unproven. Many believe Johnson, a third-round pick from Northern Iowa, will emerge as the team’s second running back — and maybe even challenge Ellington for the No. 1 role. Noted as a three-down back by the team’s coaching staff, it should not be long before he starts receiving carries. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo It helps that there is little else of note on the roster. Williams was the only Cardinal to rush for 100 yards in a game last season, Grice ran for a touchdown in the playoff game and Taylor has proven to be reliable. Yet, none have given any indication that they could be a team’s featured back, and that leaves the Cardinals somewhat thin at the position. Playing behind a revamped offensive line, there’s a better-than-good chance Arizona’s running backs will find more success in 2015 than they did in 2014. And who knows, perhaps better blocking will allow each of the team’s runners to look better than they have in the past. But until proven otherwise, there are some very understandable question marks about this group’s ability to stay healthy and produce.

So, how does the team look? Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Arizona Cardinals won 11 games in 2014, and if not for an incredible amount of injuries very well could have had an even more successful season.Look around, though, and you’ll see varied opinions on how they will fare in 2015. Some view them as a contender, a team that will compete for a Super Bowl if it can have a little luck in the health department. Others believe last year was a bit of a fluke, that they are destined to take a step back.last_img read more

The first patient was enrolled in January, and the last patient data are expected to be collected in March 2022. Large enough and long enough to allow scientists to measure the drug’s impact on symptoms of the slowly progressive disease, the study should show whether the drug can deliver on its promise of slowing or stopping the course of the devastating disease.Running the key trial is Roche of Basel, Switzerland, which licensed HTTRx from its developer, Ionis Pharmaceuticals of Carlsbad, California, in December 2017, and renamed it RG6042.

Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*)center_img The data behind the promising trial of a drug that blocks the production of a mutant protein that causes brain damage in people with Huntington disease—an inherited and ultimately fatal neurological disorder—were published today in The New England Journal of Medicine, giving an official imprimatur to news that first electrified the community of patients with the disease 17 months ago.The results, originally announced in December 2017, were published alongside an editorial that called the trial “pathbreaking.” The new paper reports that the drug, a short stretch of synthetic DNA called HTTRx that blocks the production of the mutant protein huntingtin, is safe in humans; no serious adverse events were reported by the 46 people who participated in the trial. (Last summer, Science wrote in depth about the first participant, Michelle Dardengo.)The results also provide details behind the source of excitement about the trial: that HTTRx reduced levels of huntingtin in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that bathes the spinal cord—a proxy, it is hoped, for what is happening in the brain—by amounts that had reversed Huntington-like motor and cognitive symptoms in mice. And the reductions in the mutant protein in the CSF of patients were dose-dependent: Through a range of dosing levels, the bigger the dose, the more the reduction of the mutant protein.

Barron at LaigneeBarron@timeinccomPresident Donald Trump told the Wall Street Journal that after his controversial speech at the Boy Scouts National Jamboree in West Virginia the head of the Boy Scouts called him and told him it was “the greatest speech that was ever made to them” But the organization told TIME they are unaware of any call from national leadership placed to the White House "The Chief Scout Executives message to the Scouting community speaks for itself" the organization said referring to a July 27 statement from Michael Surbaugh the Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America who apologized to anyone in the scouting community who could have been offended or alarmed by the political rhetoric in the speech “For years people have called upon us to take a position on political issues and we have steadfastly remained non-partisan and refused to comment on political matters We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program” Surbaugh wrote The President also told the paper he did not find his politicized speech to the Boy Scouts last month to be controversial despite Surbaugh’s apology “They loved it” the President told the Wall Street Journal according to a transcript of the interview obtained and published by Politico In the transcript the President is responding to claims from the paper’s reporters that the reaction to his speech was “mixed” “Id be the first to admit mixed Im a guy that will tell you mixed” Trump responded “There was no mix there That was a standing ovation from the time I walked out to the time I left and for five minutes after I had already gone There was no mix” During his July 24 speech the President bragged about his election victory slamming his former opponent Hillary Clinton as well his predecessor former President Barack Obama and repeatedly decrying the media for what he deemed unfair coverage The interview with the Journal took place July 25 but the paper only released
