The best cancer medicine in the cabinet

Daughter’s games give UT soccer mom the drive to keep fighting

The infinity ring hidden under white athletic tape is a constant source of inspiration during games for Tara Katz. The University of Tennessee junior outside back never removes it from her left hand.

JOE ROGERS: MY TAKE

Sunday Halloween shouldn’t always be this difficult

Here we are, 28 years down the road, same situation, no better off. I wrote about it then, for The Tennessean. My lead now could be the same:

TENNESSEE TITANS

Stars aligning for Titans

Big wins, favorable schedule flip the story line

With back-to-back home wins against what was supposed to be two of the best teams the AFC has to offer – Buffalo and Kansas City – you can expect the Tennessee Titans to begin getting some long-sought – at least in the eyes of fans – national recognition.

Yes, Henry is MVP-worthy, but the NFL is a quarterback league

With Derrick Henry’s work Monday Night Football came the type of attention that rarely finds its way to the Tennessee Titans.

Titans at Colts: What to watch

The Titans have a golden opportunity to all but lock up the AFC South if they can win at Indianapolis Sunday. The Titans are 5-2 and already have a win against the Colts Sept. 26. That game was played when Colts QB Carson Wentz was hampered by two ankle sprains, and the Titans were able to take advantage and cruise to an early season win. In the rematch, the Titans can really gain the upper hand with a win or breathe life back into the Colts’ season with a loss.

BRIEFS

Mayor proposes $35M investment

Mayor Indya Kincannon has announced her proposals for programs to stimulate economic and community development among other recommendations.

BEHIND THE WHEEL

Little differences: VW Taos vs. Chevy Trailblazer

The Volkswagen Taos and Chevrolet Trailblazer are two of the latest in a growing crowd of extra-small crossover SUVs. These entry-level crossovers provide plenty of utility in a relatively small package and offer many features found in larger SUVs. Cutting back on size doesn’t mean cutting back on convenience.

PERSONAL FINANCE

Mounting money mistakes could signal dementia

Some of the early signs of dementia are financial, forgetting to pay bills, for example, or having trouble calculating a tip. People who develop dementia also are more likely to miss credit card payments and have subprime credit scores years before they’re diagnosed, a study published last year in medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine finds.

BUSINESS BOOK REVIEW

Women seldom get credit – or credit – for inventions

Well, this is not working. You can clearly see a problem, and everyone online agrees with you. It’s not working and the fix, duh!, is painfully obvious. So, now where do you take this idea of yours? To a network TV show or a corporation, a laboratory or a bank? Or, as Katrine Marçal explains in her new book, “Mother of Invention,” it might depend on your gender.

CAREER CORNER

Put difficult interview experience to work for you

Happy Halloween! In celebration, I want to share a frightening job interview story.

MILLENNIAL MONEY

Scary money tasks to tackle now with your family

There are some things no one wants to think about until they have to, like caregiving for your parents as they age and figuring out what happens to your finances when you die. But planning for these events now can spare you and your loved ones a lot of hassle later on.
