Answers Elusive in Murder of Young Nashville Surgical Technician

  Answers Elusive in Murder of Young Nashville Surgical Technician It was a typical Friday when Ashley Brown disappeared.The 27-year-old surgical technician was in charge of anticipating needs in high-pressure medical situations-- assisting surgeons by setting up the operating room, passing instruments during procedures and ensuring everything was sterile.

  Answers to biggest questions after Week 3 © Provided by theScore Here are the answers to five pressing questions from the third week of the baseball season:

Which injury-riddled team is best equipped to weather the storm?

Los Angeles Dodgers. Rich Hill, Scott Kazmir, Yimi Garcia, and others are sitting out with lingering issues, and who knows how long Brandon McCarthy can stay healthy. That doesn't even cover the position players on the mend. The Dodgers have ample minor-league depth, however, from pitcher Julio Urias to infielder Cody Bellinger. If things get too dire, the farm system still has enough value for a trade. The Dodgers will come out the other end smelling like roses. - Wilson

  Is Google Home spying on me? Biggest privacy myths debunked Is Google Home always listening to me? It's one of the most common questions asked about the voice-activated smart speaker. Is Google Home always listening to me? It's one of the most common questions asked about the voice-activated smart speaker. With wary consumers still unsure whether Google is spying on their conversations, it's time to separate the fact from fiction.

Colorado Rockies. Ian Desmond is out. So is David Dahl. Tom Murphy isn't expected back until after April. Chad Bettis' chemotherapy is keeping him from pitching. Yet, the Rockies are one of the best teams in baseball and things will only get better when they get these pieces back. The offense, as expected, is great, but their bullpen and rotation have been very good. Mike Dunn and Greg Holland look like fantastic pick-ups so far. - Mcwilliam

Who has the most eye-popping stats to open the season?

Noah Syndergaard. The New York Mets' ace has been nothing short of amazing. His 1.73 ERA is impressive, as are his 30 strikeouts in 26 innings. Syndergaard hasn't yielded a home run yet, either. But the most incredible statistic is that he has not issued a single base-on-balls. Syndergaard walked 2.11 batters per nine innings in 2016 and command was his last remaining weakness. He could easily win the NL Cy Young this season. - Wilson

Feinstein hears it at raucous S.F. town hall — voters want action

  Feinstein hears it at raucous S.F. town hall — voters want action Many of the 1,000 people who attended Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s town hall Monday in San Francisco didn’t necessarily disagree with her, they just wanted her to be louder and more aggressive in opposing the Trump administration. Many of the 1,000 people who attended Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s town hall Monday in San Francisco didn’t necessarily disagree with her, they just wanted her to be louder and more aggressive in opposing the Trump administration.

Kansas City Royals. The Royals have the best ERA of any starting rotation in baseball (2.48) to this point in the season, yet they're currently sitting last in the American League Central due to their inability to produce runs. Danny Duffy continues to impress after a breakout 2016, but Jason Vargas may be the Royals' biggest surprise, owning a perfect 3-0 record with a 0.44 ERA in his first season back since Tommy John surgery. - Mcwilliam

Should the San Francisco Giants discipline Madison Bumgarner for his dirt biking incident?

No. Bumgarner is the face of the franchise and to alienate him because of an accident, no matter how wrong-headed, is akin to cutting off your nose to spite your face. The dominant southpaw is under a team-friendly contract through 2019, making $12 million a year over the next two seasons. Even if 2016 is a write-off, there's no player the Giants need more going forward. - Wilson

Aaron Hernandez reportedly had Bible verse John 3:16 on forehead

  Aaron Hernandez reportedly had Bible verse John 3:16 on forehead Aaron Hernandez committed suicide on Wednesday morning, days after being acquitted in a double murder trial. People have been looking for answers to the questions about why he killed himself after the legal system began working in his favor.While we don’t have answers just yet, we do have some more information surrounding his death.According to WBZ in Boston, Hernandez had the Bible verse John 3:16 written on his forehead in blood.

Yes. It doesn't appear like Bumgarner will receive any kind of discipline for getting into a dirt bike accident during an off day in Colorado. Although being injured may be considered punishment enough, the Giants would benefit from disciplining him, if only to send a message to the rest of the club. Several players recently told CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic they aren't allowed to ride dirt bikes, so unless Bumgarner has some special clause in his contact, he deserves at least a fine so that in the future he shows some self-restraint. - Mcwilliam

Was Marcus Stroman out of line for celebrating the Toronto Blue Jays' victory on Sunday?

Hard no. Suggesting Stroman is spitting in the face of the sanctity of baseball is almost as ridiculous as believing said sanctity even exists. Just because these players make millions of dollars to play a game, they shouldn't be expected to be emotionless automatons. If the Angels don't like getting punked, play better. Beat him next time. The Blue Jays have been awful and this celebration seemed more like a catharsis than showing up the opponent. - Wilson

Even in red states, Republicans feel free to criticize Trump on his taxes and travel

  Even in red states, Republicans feel free to criticize Trump on his taxes and travel GOP senators and House members break with the president on his tax returns and frequent Florida trips.Nor did Trump’s popularity in Iowa stop Sen. Joni Ernst (R) from telling her constituents there that she is perturbed by the president’s frequent jaunts to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.

No. The Blue Jays are the worst team in baseball, so how can Stroman be given grief for trying to inject some life into a club that is doing so poorly? Stroman is an emotional guy. His actions against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday fit with his persona, so it was no surprise. Let the man celebrate if he does well. He wouldn't be the first. He won't be the last, and if it was really off-base, then surely he would have received some kind of warning for his actions. The guy was pumped up. Let him be. - Mcwilliam

Should Matt Barnes be suspended for throwing at Manny Machado? If yes, for how long?

Yes - 20 games. Precedent and rules suggest such a stiff penalty is not going to happen. If the severity is not increased substantially in these instances, the punishment is essentially ceremonial. A three- or five-game suspension tells me that MLB doesn't actually care about batter safety and merely wants the appearance of being disciplinarians. Throw the book at Barnes and every other pitcher who takes matters into his own hands. - Wilson

Difficult legal path forward for Trump in sanctuary cities case

  Difficult legal path forward for Trump in sanctuary cities case By Mica Rosenberg and Dan LevineEven if President Donald Trump wins an appeal of a court ruling blocking his executive order on sanctuary cities, arguments made by the government in the case could permanently harm its efforts to cut off federal funding to targeted cities, some legal experts say.

Yes - 5 games. What Barnes did is wrong. Sure, he says the pitch got away from him, but nobody is buying that nonsense, especially after it appeared Eduardo Rodriguez was also trying to bean Machado earlier in the game. Barnes deserves the same suspension Washington Nationals right-hander A.J. Cole received after he threw behind Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang last September. The pitches were similar, both in the area of the head, and must be disciplined. If Cole got five games, so should Barnes. Let's be fair. - Mcwilliam
