Death toll from fungal meningitis outbreak on the rise

60 afflicted by fungal meningitis in U.S. outbreak

7 people killed by the outbreak to date

To date, the meningitis has been detected in nine states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, and Virginia. The CDC says the outbreak has been linked to steroid shots intended for back pain, and urges proactive steps by those who received the medication: “All patients who may have received these medications need to be tracked down immediately. It is possible that if patients with infection are identified soon and put on appropriate antifungal therapy, lives may be saved,” said the CDC’s Dr. Benjamin Park. source

Lance Armstrong will face formal doping charges
Say nope to dope: The US Anti-Doping Agency—yes, that’s what it’s called—confirmed today that it’s going to file formal doping charges against Lance Armstrong. The agency says that Armstrong used performance enhancing drugs between 1999 and 2005 (you know, when he was winning the Tour de France every year). He’s consistently denied the allegations, and so the case will move to arbitration (Photo credit: AP). source

Roger Clemens found not guilty of perjury: The former baseball pitcher faced a seven-week long trial over whether he lied to a Congressional panel on his steroid usage back in 2008. Accusations that Clemens (among other players) used steroids date back to the Mitchell Report, produced by former Sen. George Mitchell in 2007. After a few days of deliberations, which largely hinged on the word of his former strength coach Brian McNamee, the jury sided with Clemens, finding him not guilty of all charges. More as we get it.

Former San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds was sentenced to 2 years probation and 30 days home confinement for his obstruction of justice conviction.
Later, the judge agreed to stay her sentence while Bonds appeals his conviction. - San Jose Mercury News

Think the punishment fits the crime? Bonds’ reputation is already in tatters. But 30 days in home confinement sounds kinda weak for an obstruction of justice conviction.

He’s entitled to a fair trial. He now cannot get it.
Judge Reggie B. Walton, judge in the Roger Clemens trial • Explaining why he’s declaring a mistrial in the case, which just started this week. Basically, the prosecution revealed a statement to the jury when they weren’t supposed to. He went on to angrily rebuke the government counsel responsible for the prosecution, saying that they should have been more careful because they can’t just get away with anything — and what they’ve already said can’t be erased from the jury’s minds. “A lot of government money has been used to reach this point. The government should have been more cautious,” he “I don’t see how I can un-ring the bell.” source (viafollow)
