New York Yankees

New York Yankees
Established in 1901, the New York Yankees are one of the most storied and successful franchises in Major League Baseball. The team was founded in 1901 in Baltimore, but moved to New York in 1903 where they became known as the New York Highlanders. The team officially became the New York Yankees in 1913. In all, the Yankees have won 26 championships, more than any other franchise. Countless Hall of Fame players have donned pinstripes over the years, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle. (Photo GETTY IMAGES)

    Wandering Eye: A local sex shop takes on '50 Shades of Grey,' remembering Babe Ruth's local roots, and more
    A brand-new Johns Hopkins University-led study published in Plos One has found that mice inhaling electronic-cigarette vapor on a human scale, from the types of e-cigs widely available at convenience stores, showed an increased risk of viral and bacterial lung infections. The study has prompted alarmist  headlines, but a Plos One commenter, Niall O'Byrne, detects in the study a "bias against e-cigarettes" and points out that "a robust study" would have presented "a direct comparison with the effects of cigarette smoking" on mice, so as to get a sense of the relative risk, in light of the prominent use of e-cigs as a smoking-cessation device. (Disclosure: this writer quit smoking with e-cigs, and hasn't smoked a cigarette in 10 months after more than 30 years of heavy smoking.) Prominent public-health and anti-smoking researcher Michael Siegel of Boston University also criticized the study on his blog, writing of "the dangers of extrapolating from mice" to humans by noting "a nearly identical study which found that mice treated with aspirin exhibit impaired clearance of bacteria from their lungs." He adds that "the only existing clinical evidence" from studying humans "is that switching from smoking to e-cigarettes can actually reverse one form of obstructive airways disease," asthma, and that all the Hopkins study "really demonstrated was something we already knew: that e-cigarette aerosol can cause respiratory irritation." On the up side, the Hopkins researchers also found that the vapors contain about 1 percent of the cell-damaging toxins found in cigarette smoke, yet spun this finding as a bad thing. (Van Smith)
