  • Jerry Jones: If Tony Romo can withstand the pain, he could play Sunday

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    Tony Romo did not suffer a season-ending back injury in the third quarter Monday night. But that doesn’t mean the 32-year-old quarterback will be able to play Sunday against Arizona. Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones shared the latest on Romo’s bruised back during a Wednesday morning radio interview. “At this time, we have nothing medically that would prevent him from playing,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “What I mean by that is that there’s nothing to his injury that technically won’t function. This is a function of pain tolerance. But it’s a serious issue that you could look at people that have had a similar type injury and they haven’t played the next week, so that would cause you some concern about him playing.” Romo suffered the injury after taking a knee to his back while being sacked during Monday night’s 20-17 overtime loss to Washington. Romo received an X-ray and a pain-killing injection before returning late in the fourth quarter. “It is not, at this juncture, in any way, a season-ending injury,” Jones said. “But it is one that raises the question of whether or not he can tolerate a certain amount of pain in that area. That’s about what we know right now. If Romo can't play Sunday, the QB duties would fall to former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden. Weeden came in vs. Washington on Monday night and led the Cowboys to two scoring drives.

  • Shocking Harvard poll: Millennial voters want GOP in charge, abandon Obama

    Published: Wed, Oct 29, 2014

    Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever, reports the Washington Examiner. A new and massive poll of 2,029 18-29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control. Because the numbers are close, however, Harvard said the kid vote is “up for grabs.”

  • When You Feel Like the Oldest Person at Work

    Published: Wed, Oct 29, 2014

    One of the traits of boomers I always point out in my intergenerational workplace programs is the inability to see ourselves as “old,” says Phyllis Weiss Haserot in Next Avenue.   So I was intrigued reading journalist Michele Willens’ recent New York Times opinion piece, “ When Did We Get So Old? ” She wrote that boomers (like her) at work tend to “settle into one of two groups.” There are those who prefer being around younger people, said Willens, and those who prefer places where they are on the younger end of the age spectrum of “the people in the room.”   I am firmly in the first camp, eager to interact with my many twentysomething and thirtysomething colleagues and new friends that age. I thrive on the energy of what’s next and my interest and passion resonates with them. I consider myself very fortunate to be “cross-generational.” But not everyone in their 50s and 60s feels that way.

  • Nurse Kaci Hickox Doesn't Intend to Obey Maine Ebola Quarantine: Report

    Published: Wed, Oct 29, 2014

    Maine health officials are prepared to "pursue legal authority" to enforce a quarantine Tuesday as reports surfaced that Kaci Hickox, a nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone and shows no symptoms of the virus, doesn't intend to obey the quarantine, NBC News reports. "We do not want to have to legally enforce in-home quarantine," Mary Mayhew, commissioner of the state Health and Human Services Department, said at a news conference. She wouldn't comment on Hickox's case specifically, but Hickox's attorney told the Bangor Daily News that his client — who was quarantined against her will in New Jersey upon her return to the U.S. — "doesn't want to agree to continue to be confined to a residence" beyond two days.

  • Government accuses AT&T of misleading 'unlimited data' customers

    Published: Tue, Oct 28, 2014

    AT&T is back in the government's crosshairs. The Federal Trade Commission announced a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that AT&T (T, Tech30) misled mobile customers with "unlimited" data plans, deliberately slowing their connection speeds in a practice known as throttling. The FTC said AT&T "failed to adequately disclose" the fact that when unlimited customers reached a certain data limit in a billing cycle, it reduced their connection speeds by as much as 90%. As a result, the complaint alleged, many common smartphone applications -- like web browsing, GPS navigation and streaming video -- became "difficult or nearly impossible to use."
