Black NHL player Wayne Simmonds says he’s not going to comment any more on a fan throwing a banana peel on the ice as the Philadelphia Flyers forward was attempting an overtime shootout goal against the Detroit Red Wings in an exhibition game in London, Ontario Thursday night.
“It was unfortunate that this incident happened but I am above this sort of stuff,” said Simmons in a statement Friday. “This is something that is out of my control. Moving forward, this incident is something I will no longer comment on so I can just focus on playing hockey for the Philadelphia Flyers.”
Simmonds drew strong support from other NHL players on Twitter. St. Louis Blues forward Chris Stewart tweeted: “The incident that happened in london tonight involving my best friend wayne simmonds was simply disgusting, its 2011 ppl need to grow up.”
Could Allen Iverson be the latest big name added to Sunday’s star-studded exhibition in Philadelphia?
A source with knowledge of the game rosters says Iverson is “supposed” to play Sunday in a game expected to feature LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul, among others.
When reached via email Wednesday, game organizer Rahim Thompson said “no comment” when asked about the possibility of Iverson playing.
Iverson is one of the most popular athletes in Philadelphia. He played parts of 12 NBA seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers, leading them to the NBA Finals in 2001 while winning the league’s MVP award.
A packaging error that could resulted in unwanted pregnancies has led to a birth control pill recall by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, impacting Cyclafem, Emoquette, Gildess, Orsythia, Previfem and Tri-Previfem.
The birth control recall was announced by Qualitest, a division of Endo Pharmaceuticals, on September 15. The company reports that some of the pill-containing blister packages were rotated 180 degrees during packaging, reversing the weekly tablet orientation, which could lead women to take the pills in the wrong order.
If women follow the order of the birth control pills on the defective blisters, they may unknowingly be without contraceptive protection and could be at risk for unintended pregnancy. In addition, the defective blisters do not show the expiration date or the lot number. However, there are no other health risks associated with the recalled birth control pills.

The ever-changing story of Peyton Manning’s(notes) future in the NFL just took a very bad turn. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Manning underwent cervical fusion surgery on Thursday morning, a procedure that will put him out of the game for at least 2-3 months. This follows a May 23 surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck.
The healing process from that surgery proved to be frustratingly slow, and after consulting with half a dozen neurosurgeons, it was decided that the best course of action for Manning was to have a one-level cervical fusion in his neck. In short, cervical fusion is when surgeons remove a herniated disc and put a bone graft in its place.

Phone conversations have been shown to cause a cognitive distraction in drivers. In other words, the driver’s brain is intensely engaged with the conversation, although he may appear to be paying attention to the road. This does not happen with other common distractions, including conversations with passengers. Research has shown that phone conversations cause what is termed “tunnel vision” in drivers. Although they appear to be looking at objects, their brains are not registering a good portion of what they see. Therefore, a driver is impaired for the entire length of the phone conversation.
I found these illustrations interesting , I hope they inspire our artistic viewers in many ways. Enjoy the art.
