ARMSTRONG TALKS WITH OPRAH
His interview with Oprah Winfrey hasn't aired yet, but already some people want to hear more — under oath — before Armstrong is allowed to compete in elite triathlons, a sport he returned to after retiring from cycling in 2011.
In addition to stripping him of all seven of his Tour de France titles last year, anti-doping officials banned Armstrong for life from sanctioned events.
World Anti-Doping Agency officials said nothing short of "a full confession under oath" would even cause them to reconsider the ban.
Although Armstrong admitted to Winfrey on Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs, they said that is "hardly the same as giving evidence to a relevant authority."
NEW SURVEY ON ENERGY DRINKS
From two thousand seven to two thousand eleven, the government estimates the number of emergency room visits involving the neon-labeled beverages shot up from about ten thousand to more than twenty thousand.
Most of those cases involved teens or young adults, according to a survey of the nation's hospitals.
The report doesn't specify which symptoms brought people to the emergency room but calls energy drink consumption a "rising public health problem" that can cause insomnia, nervousness, headache, fast heartbeat and seizures that are severe enough to require emergency care.
Several emergency physicians said they had seen a clear uptick in the number of patients suffering from irregular heartbeats, anxiety and heart attacks who said they had recently downed an energy drink.
More than half of the patients considered in the survey who wound up in the emergency room told doctors they had downed only energy drinks.
