Josef Newgarden’s words keep saying "not so fast" but his actions and performance is befitting of a coronation. The 2017 NTT IndyCar Series champion took the next step to his second title in three years by capturing the pole for Saturday night’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway near St. Louis. In addition to valuable track position for the start of the race, the distinction also earned him one more championship point over Alexander Rossi with just three races remaining at Gateway, Portland and Laguna Seca. Officially, Newgarden cannot earn his second championship on Saturday night, but with a win, he should probably consider pre-purchasing party favors for the banquet afterparty. Here’s a short list of what to watch for at 8:45 ET on Saturday night on NBCSN. … [Read more...] about IndyCar viewing guide: Gateway
While I'm a skeptic of diet fads, I take note when something works. Last year, my acid reflux flared up so badly I lost my voice and developed a nodule on my vocal cords. My doctor put me on a regimen of two different antacids twice a day, lots of rest (as if that is actually possible) and mentioned that I should avoid acid triggers and overeating. Leaving the visit, I still felt that just taking medications couldn't be the answer. There had to be a way to dramatically shift my acidity. Then, I found the alkaline diet theory. Prior to learning more about it, I thought an alkaline diet was about drinking lemon water and testing your urine every hour. In reality, it is about monitoring what you put into your digestive system with an aim to reducing inflammation and stomach acid. When we metabolize, we burn food to release energy. After burning, there is ash residue (also called metabolic waste) that can be acidic, alkaline or neutral. Alkaline dieters claim the acidity of the … [Read more...] about Can an alkaline diet cure your acid reflux?
An ankle sprain, a migraine, an ear infection... where do you go when the pain is bad enough to seek help, but not severe enough to warrant a hospital stay? I'm willing to bet that many people would answer, "The ER, duh!," but that option carries the risk of getting a bill well over $1,000 just for a doctor to check on you and prescribe painkillers. Most minor injuries and illnesses can be treated quickly at an often-overlooked type of healthcare facility, and even online if they don't require hands-on treatment. Keep reading to learn more about urgent care and how to find the right type of urgent care service for you.

Fitbit makes some great fitness trackers like the Inspire HR, but there's plenty of competition from other big-name wearables like the Samsung Galaxy Fit and Garmin Vivosmart. Like the Fitbit, these trackers monitor steps, heart rate and your fitness. They can also get notifications from your phone, but they all cost around $100. Xiaomi's new Mi Band 4 is significantly cheaper (it's around $35 in the US from Amazon or Walmart) and shares many similar features with these other fitness trackers. To find out if the cheaper Mi Band 4 can keep up with its higher-end rivals, I wore it alongside the Fitbit Inspire HR for two weeks. Find the full breakdown of how they compare in the video above and read on for the abridged version. Note CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

The Ferrari 412 T1 was designed by John Bernard and Gustav Brunner and came equipped with a 3.5-liter V12 engine. The 'T' in the name was in reference to the transverse gearbox. The design featured a rounded nosecone and heavily sculptured sidepods. The design was continued throughout the season, eventually receiving redesigned sidepods and wings. The changes to the car resulted in a name change to the 412 T1B. At the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, a new Tipo 043 engine was installed and its first race was at Hockenheim. Replacing the 043, the Tipo 043 engine had a wider vee-angle of 75 degrees and a shorter stroke. Ferrari drivers included Gerhard Berger and Jean Alesi and the car finished the season with 71 points and in 3rd place. The lone victory was scored by Berger at the German Grand Prix. Alesi scored a 2nd place finish, three 3rd place finishes and a fourth. Nicola Larini scored a 2nd place finish and Berger finished in 2nd place on three occasions.By Daniel Vaughan | Aug 2019 … [Read more...] about 1994 Ferrari 412 T1
