    I didn't hate Sampras, I just couldn't identify with him for the longest time. I actually became a bit of a Sampras fan during his marathon match with Corretja. I guess the biggest factor for me is I...

    The most convincing theory I've seen so far is that the underlying health factors that most influence outcomes are also heavily skewed for sex. In China, about half of all men smoke, but only 2% of...

    I believe the Federal Government does have that power, though it is unclear what the standard of review on any policy would be. Congress has charged the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)...

    Canada just announced they will not be sending athletes if the Olympics go forward as planned. I don't there's any way it takes place in 2020.
