Rudy Gobert does it all as Jazz rout young Warriors

Inquirer Breaking News - 16 min 27 sec ago
SAN FRANCISCO --- The Utah Jazz thrive on making that one extra pass to pile up assists, even if it means they run right up against the shot clock on many possessions. It sure helps to have the steady hand of Rudy Gobert in the post to finish. Gobert had 22 points, 15 rebounds and three blocked shots, and Donovan Mitchell scored 23 to lead the streaking Jazz past the Golden State Warriors 129-96 on Wednesday night. "It's something our team values. Sometimes you get to a point where you're up against the shot clock because they're making another pass, but it's infectious," coach Quin Snyder said. "When guys start doing that, the shots become easier when you know that your tea...

Early menopause increases health risks after 60 — study

Inquirer Breaking News - 25 min 41 sec ago
Women who undergo premature menopause are almost three times more likely to develop multiple, chronic medical problems in their 60s than women who make the transition at 50 or 51, researchers reported Monday. In high-income countries, a third of a woman's life unfolds after the menopause. Earlier research showed that premature menopause at 40 or younger is linked later in life to single medical problems such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. But the new study, published in Human Reproduction, is the first to examine links between the timing of natural menopause and the onset of multiple medical conditions, known as multimorbidity, the authors said. The data were dra...
