Elected officials, not political appointees, should be making policy. Unfortunately, Davenport Levee Commission is too accustomed to lording over the riverfront to cede any ground.

It's patently absurd that a four-fifths supermajority of Davenport City Council -- a wholly elected body -- is required to overturn a Levee Commission decision. That's eight of 10 votes, a nearly insurmountable number, which, in essence, robs elected officials and their constituents a democratic voice.

That reality isn't lost on city officials. Last week,\u00a0City Attorney Tom Warner offered a proposed change that would require just a six-vote simple majority of the City Council to overrule a Levee Commission edict.

Predictably, the Levee Commission -- still basking in its political victory over Mayor Frank Klipsch's proposal to weaken the commission's power -- had none of it. Instead, Commissioner Karl Rhomberg authored a parliamentary\u00a0response that rejected the most weighty aspect of the city's proposed overhaul of operations.

With the support of his peers, Rhomberg offered an official nose thumbing aimed at City Hall.

No doubt, the Levee Commission earlier this year felt attacked when Klipsch looked to fuse it with other boards that oversee parks. Klipsch's proposal would have essentially turned a regulatory body into an advisory\u00a0board. But the Levee Commission mustered support and survived.

Wednesday's maneuver\u00a0amounts\u00a0to the recently\u00a0besieged Levee Commission flexing its collective muscles.\u00a0

Remove the players and look at the issue objectively. At present, the Levee Commission wields\u00a0almost unheard of power in Davenport. Its members serve six-year terms, often outliving the political life of the mayors by whom they were appointed. Most regular city business -- planning, zoning, the budget -- is determined by a simple majority vote of the council. So, too, should any decision about riverfront policy.

And yet, when it comes to the riverfront, Davenport is mired in an anachronistic\u00a0process that gives outsized voice to certain circles.

The Levee Commission wasn't chartered 106 years ago to be Davenport's de-facto environmental regulator along the riverfront. No, it was created to manage leases. But, as the riverfront transitioned away from industry to recreation, most of those leases disappeared.

In response, the Levee Commission pivoted to activism. It became a place for environmentally minded and pro-development mayors alike to stash political supporters. That said, the unpaid gig tends to self-select for those with, shall we say, a green bent.

And, thanks to the draconian requirement for a supermajority, it's the segment\u00a0of the community that dominates riverfront policy.

The riverfront belongs to every Davenport taxpayer. Each voter, regardless of political perspective, deserves equal voice. That democratic imperative\u00a0is why the City Council is broken into wards. It's why City Council members must bang on doors every two years. It's why the ultimate power falls to those ultimately accountable to the voters.

But you wouldn't know it in Davenport, as a politically packed regulatory body has the power to decide whether a project along the riverfront lives or dies. Elected officials should be making those decisions. Unfortunately, that won't happen as long as eight votes are needed to overcome the Levee Commission's heavy hand. \u00a0

I\u2019ll admit that I was nervous. The night before, I made sure the floors were spotless. I pulled all the weeds. I roped a friend into a Sunday afternoon of spraying white paint on the railings leading up to the front door. Moments before she arrived, I stood for a moment on the sidewalk to make sure the lines in the mowed lawn were straight.

I wanted her to like it. It was her home, after all, for 60 years. It was her house before I bought it and started tearing up carpet and painting the living room walls Hague Blue and before I learned that there are 100 shades of taupe.

I was going to order takeout for our planned lunch at the house because it was a weekday and my schedule was busy. But it didn\u2019t feel right. So, I woke up early and went out to the garden to pull radishes and cut lettuce for a salad and I drove home 20 minutes before she arrived to whip up mini blue cheese souffles.

I heard about Fran Hansen as soon as I moved into the house. A quirk of older homes in the Quad-Cities is that, to others, your house is not yours until you move out. Fran and I joked about this as we stood in the foyer. She lived in the house for decades and people still referred to it as the Charles\u2019 house. It wasn\u2019t until I moved in, that people started calling it the Hansen house.

While I was setting the table and fussing over which seat would give her the best impression of the dining room, Fran was on her way and preparing herself not to like what I had done with the house, she told me later.

She looked around and said she liked it. \u201cI understand you,\u201d she said. We were standing in the living room talking through the changes and she saw the stereo table I made out of old wooden printers drawers found in a newspaper warehouse years ago. She showed me the wooden purse she made out of an old sewing box.

I gave her a tour of the rooms and she told me the glass doorknobs were in the house before she bought it in the 1950s. She showed me the things she had changed when she moved in to make it her own \u2013 replacing the wallpaper, filling the rooms with carefully chosen antiques. She showed me the bookcases put in by the previous owners in the 1940s and the changes she and her husband made to the fireplace mantle in the decades since.

\u201cIt took 16 rolls of wallpaper to cover that room,\u201d she said.

\u201cIt took me months to take that wallpaper down,\u201d I said. We both laughed. \u201cI feel like I got to know you during those long hours of steaming and scraping wallpaper,\u201d I said.

As we ate the souffles and salad, Fran told me some of the history of Davenport and Bettendorf as she remembered living it \u2013 memories of landmarks, stories of shopping at department stores downtown. But mostly we talked about the house. The rooms, the creaks, the yard, the neighbors.

We said goodbye after lunch, my hand on the newly painted white railing. She admitted it had been an emotional day and she was ready to rest, but we would talk more on future visits. She looked forward to our friendship, she said.

When I came back home that night after work, I noticed her visit had an interesting effect on me. It changed the way I saw the house. Seeing it through the former owner\u2019s eyes made it feel more like home, even if it won\u2019t really be mine until I leave it.

Iowa\u2019s 43rd governor will go down in history as one of the \u201cfirsts\u201d for women in this state, just like Iowan Julia Addington did in 1869 becoming the first woman in the United States elected to office (Mitchell County) and Burlington\u2019s Arabella Mansfield did in 1869 becoming the first female attorney in the U.S. We couldn\u2019t be more proud to have Kim Reynolds add her name to the history books as our first female governor of Iowa.

IWLC points to Iowa women over and over as those who, individually, have broken down cultural and organizational barriers. While we honor and celebrate these achievements, we still have a long way to go. Even with notable successes, we are forced to ask, \u201cWhat is still holding us back?\u201d

50 percent of Iowa\u2019s population is women. So why are women only:

\u2022 25 percent of leadership in private, for-profit companies

\u2022 22 percent of leadership in publicly traded companies

\u2022 16 percent of board members of publicly traded companies

\u2022 28 percent of elected officials at local, state and federal level

Why is that? Among the top two reasons:

Cultural: We (women) don\u2019t raise our hands quickly enough. We want experience in 10 out of 10 qualifications for a new job before we even apply (he\u2019ll apply with six or less and learn the rest when he gets there). Men: You know this now. No excuses. Tap her on the shoulder and tell her she\u2019d be perfect for that promotion.

Organizational: Change is hard. It\u2019s hard hiring people who don\u2019t look like us. A friend of mine who is the Chief Administrative Officer at Patagonia said he asked his leadership team in Japan, all male, to intentionally bring him 3 qualified female candidates in addition to the dozen male applicants. When they said \u201cThey don\u2019t exist,\u201d he repeated \u201cGo find me three qualified female candidates.\u201d Guess who got the job? I hear she\u2019s doing very well in her new position. This isn\u2019t about quotas, it\u2019s about being intentional about bringing all talent to the table.

Companies that lead the way not only understand the social responsibility, but point to the clear business case for women in leadership at all levels. For example, statistics from Catalyst show that companies with the highest representation of women on their board have a better:

\u2022 Return on Equity: On average, companies with the highest percentages of women board directors outperformed those with the least by 53 percent.

\u2022 Return on Sales: On average, companies with the highest percentages of women board directors outperformed those with the least by 42 percent.

\u2022 Return on Invested Capital: On average, companies with the highest percentages of women board directors outperformed those with the least by 66 percent.

Iowa is a state with an impressive record of leveraging all available talent to attain the best results. In addition to leading the way by putting women in new places of leadership, it\u2019s also the state that in 1848 became the first state to allow unmarried women to own property. In 1857, the University of Iowa became the first university to allow women as students. And in1869 became the first state to allow women to be admitted to the Bar.

Here\u2019s to Gov. Kim Reynolds for raising her hand and saying \u201cyes\u201d when her predecessor, Gov. Branstad, tapped her on the shoulder. Ladies and gentlemen: let\u2019s keep making history.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) \u2014 Seeking to appeal to visitors more familiar with the words of \"Game of Thrones\" heroine Daenarys Targaryen than the writings of James Wilson, Philadelphia museums and historic sites are thinking differently, using creative art exhibitions and adding online components to their offerings.

\"Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition,\" on display until July 4, features 13 artists who created 13 works that challenge the status quo. On display throughout downtown, the exhibition includes paintings, weavings, photographs \u2014 and a knit and crochet installation featuring Targayen quotes like \"I will answer injustice with justice.\"

Meanwhile, \"American Treasures\" at the National Constitution Center showcases drafts of the U.S. Constitution written by lesser-known founding father James Wilson. After seeing an online version of the Constitution garner more than 10 million hits in 18 months, museum leaders decided to also feature the rare drafts online, where visitors will learn how one draft called for the U.S. president to be addressed as \"His Excellency.\"

\"Letting them see the words themselves has been a way to engage young people,\" said the organization's president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen. \"It's a way to bring history and ideas alive.\"

Colonial history is enjoying a resurgence thanks to the success of Broadway's \"Hamilton.\" A group of fourth graders last week ran through the newly unveiled Museum of the American Revolution singing the show's songs and looking for historic highlights they'd learned through music.

The \"Revolutionary\" exhibition \u2014 funded by Visit Philadelphia, the city's tourism arm \u2014 was curated by Conrad Benner, founder and editor of streetsdept.com, a website that promotes urban art and exploration.

Benner said he looked for artists whose work challenged the status quo.

\"All revolutions start with people looking at the world around them and asking, 'What can we do better for ourselves and our neighbors?'\" Benner said. \"It's very powerful to have those ideas in public spaces.\"

The artists in the Revolutionary exhibition approached the subject in different ways.

El Salvador-born artist Carlos Lopez Rosa created a portrait of a South American freedom fighter few people would recognize, but the image is powerful because of its canvas: It is painted on a machete, which represents conflict, he said.

Well-known yarn-bomber Ishknits was inspired to make a crochet and knit work bearing quotes from \"Game of Thrones\" character Daenerys Targaryen, including, \"I will answer injustice with justice.\"

Yasmine Mustafa, whose family came to the U.S. from Kuwait during the Persian Gulf War, was one of the creative minds behind \"Birth Lottery,\" a poster that depicts stork flying over houses.

The image is meant to showcase the randomness of where one's life begins, Mustafa said. \"We don't choose our country, our race, our economic class but these are the things that shape our lives.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 It was smooth sailing to the top spot at the box office for \"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,\" but the waters were choppier for the Dwayne Johnson comedy \"Baywatch.\"

Studio estimates on Sunday say the fifth installment of the \"Pirates of the Caribbean\" franchise commandeered $62.2 million in its first three days in theaters.

The Johnny Depp-starrer is projected to take in $76.6 million over the four-day holiday weekend.

The R-rated \"Baywatch,\" meanwhile, is sinking like a rock. The critically derided update of the 1990s TV show earned only $18.1 million over the weekend against a nearly $70 million price tag.

Even \"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2\" did better in its fourth weekend. The space opera added $19.9 million.

CANNES, France (AP) \u2014 The Latest on the Cannes Film Festival (all times local):

5:51 p.m.

The Cannes Film Festival Jury has done its job. But its president isn't letting slip which film it has picked for the coveted Palme d'Or award.

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar told a French BFM television reporter who managed to squeeze a few words out of him that the award deliberations Sunday were \"very fast.\"

Almodovar said: \"We did our work.\"

But for the names of the winners: Stay tuned.

4:41 p.m.

The Cannes Film Festival is gearing up to award its prestigious Palme d'Or at a glitzy award ceremony.

No single movie has emerged as the clear favorite among the 19 in competition for the coveted prize being awarded Sunday evening.

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar presided over the competition jury. Almodovar has made clear that he doesn't want the Palme d'Or, the festival's top prize, to go to a movie that isn't shown on big screens.

That could bode ill for Bong Joon-ho's \"Okja\" and Noah Baumbach's \"The Meyerowitz Stories,\" the first Netflix releases ever selected to be in competition for the Palme d'Or.

Regarded as cinema's most prestigious festival, Cannes is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Organizers have declared that next year, streaming-only films will not be accepted for the competition.

CANNES, France (AP) \u2014 The Cannes Film Festival is gearing up to award its prestigious Palme d'Or at a glitzy award ceremony.

No single movie has emerged as the clear favorite among the 19 in competition for the coveted prize being awarded Sunday evening.

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar presided over the competition jury. Almodovar has made clear that he doesn't want the Palme d'Or, the festival's top prize, to go to a movie that isn't shown on big screens.

That could bode ill for Bong Joon-ho's \"Okja\" and Noah Baumbach's \"The Meyerowitz Stories,\" the first Netflix releases ever selected to be in competition for the Palme d'Or.

Regarded as cinema's most prestigious festival, Cannes is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Organizers have declared that next year, streaming-only films will not be accepted for the competition.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) \u2014 Top Brazilian musical performers are lending their talents to the latest protest in the country calling for new presidential elections while pressure mounts on the country's leader to resign amid corruption allegations.

The Sunday afternoon concert on Copacabana beach will feature Grammy award-winner Caetano Veloso and other musicians. Thousands of people are expected to attend.

Concert organizers demand the resignation of President Michel Temer, who is being investigated by Brazil's high court for alleged obstruction of justice and involvement in corruption.

They also want new direct presidential elections if Temer resigns or is forced out.

Brazilian law calls in such a case for the lower house speaker to serve as interim president for up to 30 days until Congress decides who will finish the term that runs through 2018.

There are no deleted scenes in 'Wonder Woman'.

Director Patty Jenkins revealed that the final cut of the movie was remarkably close to her initial vision and the only cuts made were to \"tighten\" up the narrative.

Speaking to Collider, she said: \"You know, it's not like a long journey didn't happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. Little changes to the final battle, that was really it. I think that what I ended up finding about the final battle was I was hitting emotional points for Diana that I really wanted to hit but I felt a craving for some other kinds of emotional gratification and engagement that we tried to accentuate even more.

\"I think what you learn is rhythm, tone, where the jokes are happening but in our case, I just now can finally say all this. We didn't cut one scene in this movie nor did we change the order of one scene in this movie from the script that we went in shooting with.\"

Meanwhile, Patty recently gushed about Gal Gadot, who stars as the titular superhero.

She said: \"I can't say enough good things about her.

\"She is just an incredibly good Wonder Woman in that she naturally exudes all of the strength of character and kindness, warmth and charm come so naturally to her. That doesn't always happen with superheroes. I think a lot of people who get cast as superheroes, are sometimes true to the character and sometimes not. But when they are you never forget it, like Christopher Reeve with 'Superman'. People stay focused on that forever after.\"

Ariana Grande's fans are \"sticking together\" following the terrorist attack at her concert.

22 people died and over 50 were injured when a bomb was set off at Manchester Arena just after Ariana had finished performing last week and, following the atrocity, her fans have vowed to come through the tragedy together.

Ryan Dizon, who runs the Twitter fan account Ariana Grande Today, told Rolling Stone: \"We were devastated. Most importantly, we were thinking of Ariana and her team. They're the reason we're a family. It's really important that we all stick together.\"

Ryan was not at the concert but many of his friends and followers were and he spoke of the confusion which followed the attack as people tried to find out who had been killed and injured.

He said: \"We didn't know who it was. It could be one of our friends on the Internet. It could've been anyone.\"

Ryan believes that fans and stars have to be more security conscious now, citing the shooting of popstar Christina Grimmie at a meet-and-greet following a gig last year.

He said: \"I think it's time for us to open our eyes and be more aware and cautious of what's happening.

\"That was terrifying, especially for her fans. I definitely felt what they felt when that happened last year.\"

Ariana, 23, immediately flew home to the US following the atrocity but has revealed plans to return to the city to meet those affected and raise funds for the victims and their families.

In a lengthy Twitter post, she said: \"My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones.

There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better. However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.

\"The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out.

\"I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families. I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be a part of our expression of love for Manchester. I will have details to share with you as soon as everything is confirmed.\"

Gary Numan's new album is \"heavy and miserable\".

The 'Are Friends Electric' hitmaker will release 'Savage', his 21st studio LP, later this year and has told fans it will feature \"horrible\" themes.

He said of the record: \"It's hard to put into words really ... It's another electronic album ... heavy, and miserable lyrics about horrible things you know, lots of death and dying and why I hate God...\"

Asked if it features anything about controversial US president Donald Trump, he added: \"Not specifically but the entire theme of the album is based on his attitude to global warming.\"

The 59-year-old musician - who has daughters Raven, Persia, and Echo, with wife Gemma - insists he doesn't think about his career \"legacy\" and thinks the idea would be \"damaging\" to his kids, who dream of following in his footsteps.

Asked if he thinks about his legacy, he told BANG Showbiz: \"Not really, no. I never wanted to leave anything behind, I just want to be here, have some fun, go away really.

\"I don't want the kids to feel like they have anything to live up to or they would be compared in any way good or bad. \"That's the problem with legacies, it actually creates a wake of damage behind you and it's not always a good thing.

\"You see it with racing drivers, you know, a racing driver, a son of a famous racing driver. You think would have a lot of opportunity because of that but it can actually work against you the comparisons and so on. And I think that would be quite difficult, I wouldn't want that but I don't know how you would stop it \"

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) \u2014 A private jet once owned by Elvis Presley has been auctioned after sitting on a runway in New Mexico for 35 years.

The plane sold for $430,000 on Saturday at a California event featuring celebrity memorabilia, GWS Auctions Inc. said.

The buyer was not disclosed in the sold note posted on the firm's website, and auctioneer Brigitte Kruse said she could not immediately release information about the buyer or the buyer's plans for the plane.

The auction house says Elvis designed the interior that has gold-tone woodwork, red velvet seats and red shag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has no engine and needs a restoration of its cockpit.

The jet was owned by Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley, Liveauctioneers.com says.

It has been privately owned for 35 years and sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, New Mexico.

Photos of the plane show the exterior in need of restoration and seats of the cockpit torn.

A previous owner disputed the auction house's claim the king of rock 'n' roll designed its red velvet interior.

Roy McKay told KOB-TV in Albuquerque (https://goo.gl/GpE3zV) he designed the interior himself. McKay said that when he purchased the jet, it had a two-toned gray interior and \"kind of looked like a casket.\"

But then-GWS spokesman Carl Carter told The Associated Press the auction house is confident Elvis designed the interior, which photos show has red velvet seats and red shag carpet.

Federal Aviation Administration records show no interior changes were ever made to the jet, Carter said.

Presley was born in Tupelo on Jan. 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13. He became a leading figure in the fledgling rockabilly scene by covering songs originally performed by African-American artists like Big Mama Thornton (\"Hound Dog\") and Arthur Crudup (\"That's All Right\").

His provocative dancing and hit records turned him into one of the 20th century's most recognizable icons. Historians say his music also helped usher in the fall of racial segregation.

Elvis was 42 when he died on Aug. 16, 1977, in Memphis.

Harry Styles found filming 'Dunkirk' a gruelling experience.

The 23-year-old singer will make his feature film debut in director Christopher Nolan's upcoming World War Two movie - which tells the story of how a fleet of British ships and boats, many manned by volunteers, rescued Allied troops from a French beach - and admitted that filming long scenes in water took its toll.

Speaking to lwlies.com, Harry said: \"A week before we started, Emma (Thomas, the film's producer) called me and said, 'By the way, I forgot to ask... you can swim right?' It was a relief to know that I could because there was so much swimming involved. However much you train for it, filming in the water for an hour in full clothes is a gruelling experience.\"

Harry also revealed that he was surprised by Christopher Nolan's energy.

He said: \"The biggest thing I learned from making this movie is that Chris Nolan doesn't sit down. He leads by example, so any time there's a break given, it's because he knows everyone else needs one.

\"It makes it really hard to complain because you know he's been there longer than you, you know he's the first one there and he's going to be the last one to leave. For him, it's all about making the project the best that it can be and that's infectious.\"

And Harry says the movie is ultimately a story about survival.

He explained: \"From a character point of view, the story is stripped back to basic instinct. It's all about that survival instinct and how different people reacted to the situation in different ways. So you have clashes and tension between different characters and that intertwines with the land, air and sea themes.\"

Paris Jackson's \"role model\" is Emma Watson.

The aspiring actress was delighted to meet the 'Beauty and the Beast' star at the recent MTV Movie & TV Awards in Los Angeles and hopes they can collaborate professionally in the future.

She told Grazia magazine: \"I love her, and it would be great to work with her in the future. She's my role model.\"

Onlookers at the event say Paris approached Emma at her table during a break in the ceremony, and was delighted when the former 'Harry Potter' star gave her her phone number and said the 'Star' actress could call her for help and advice.

The source said: \"Paris rushed over to Emma's table during an ad break and gushed about how inspired she is by her work.

\"She was a huge fan of 'Harry Potter' growing up and was thrilled when Emma offered to be on hand with advice, now that Paris has moved into acting.

\"They swapped numbers and Emma blew her a kiss before Paris ran back to her table.\"

It was previously claimed the 19-year-old star - who is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson - has shunned advice from making it big from her own family members.

A source said: \"She's not leaning on the family at all for advice. She sees people not willing to work hard, not willing to take things to the next level ... Laziness and reliance on the family name.\"

Paris' attitude is, in part, motivated by her father's experiences with the other members of the Jackson family.

The insider explained: \"Paris has realised a lot of what her dad experienced with his family - bitterness, jealousy, manipulation, even hate.\"

However, one person Paris has been willing to take advice from is her older brother Prince.

A source said: \"Prince, believe it or not, has been the single individual who has been guiding his sister. For a time, Paris wanted to honour her father by becoming a singer.\"

Harry Styles has been \"adopted\" by Mick Fleetwood.

The One Direction singer - whose debut solo album recently topped the charts in the US and UK - is a huge fan of Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks revealed Mick, 69, sees him as the \"son he always wanted\".

Speaking to Event magazine, she said: \"When we did the last Fleetwood Mac show, on my birthday [at London's O2 in May 2015], it was the nicest birthday I'd had in 10 years. Harry Styles brought back a cake. Mick [Fleetwood] has kind of adopted him. There are just women in Mick's family and Harry is that tall, lanky musical son he always wanted, so they keep in touch.\"

Stevie, 69, is also close to 23-year-old Harry and recently joined him on stage at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, where they performed three songs together, including a duet of 'Landslide'.

Harry is not the only One Direction singer who has been \"adopted\" by his idols; Niall Horan recently revealed he and The Eagles star Don Henley call each other \"dad\" and \"son\".

He said: \"Don Henley and I talk every couple weeks or so. It's mad. I call him 'Dad'. He calls me 'Son'.\"

Don added: \"Niall is a solid guy whose focus is right where it ought to be: on songwriting.

\"He's got the Irish charm and a healthy, self-effacing sense of humor, which is an essential survival tool in this business. I think that Niall will evolve into a resonant, thoughtful voice for his generation.\"

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) \u2014 Gregg Allman, a survivor of tragedy, knew the blues musically and in a painfully personal way.

Raised by a single mother after his father was shot to death, he idolized his guitar-slinging older brother, Duane, and became his musical partner. They formed the nucleus of The Allman Brothers Band, which helped define the Southern rock sound of the 1970s.

Their songs such as \"Whipping Post,\" ''Ramblin' Man\" and \"Midnight Rider\" laid the foundation for the genre and opened the doors for groups like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band.

Gregg Allman, whose bluesy vocals and soulful touch on the Hammond B-3 organ helped propel the Allman Brothers Band to superstardom, died Saturday. He was 69.

Allman died peacefully and surrounded by loved ones at his home near Savannah, his manager, Michael Lehman, told The Associated Press. He blamed cancer for Allman's death.

\"It's a result of his reoccurrence of liver cancer that had come back five years ago,\" Lehman said in an interview. \"He kept it very private because he wanted to continue to play music until he couldn't.\"

Allman played his last concert in October as health problems forced him to cancel other 2016 shows. He announced Aug. 5 that he was \"under his doctor's care at the Mayo Clinic\" due to \"serious health issues.\" Later that year, he canceled more dates, citing a throat injury. In March, he canceled performances for the rest of 2017.

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, the rock star known for his long blond hair was raised in Florida.

In his 2012 memoir, \"My Cross to Bear,\" Allman described how his older brother was a central figure in his life in the years after their father was murdered by a man he met in a bar. The two boys endured a spell in a military school before being swept up in rock music in their teens. Although Gregg was the first to pick up a guitar, it was Duane who excelled at it. So Gregg later switched to the organ.

They spent years in bands together, but failed to crack success until they formed The Allman Brothers Band in 1969. It featured extended jams, tight guitar harmonies by Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, rhythms from a pair of drummers and the smoky blues inflected voice of Gregg Allman.

Based in Macon, Georgia, the group also had drummers Jai Johanny \"Jaimoe\" Johanson and Butch Trucks and bassist Berry Oakley. They reached the pinnacle of the burgeoning music scene, partying to excess while defining a sound that still excites millions.

Their self-titled debut album came out in 1969, but it was their seminal live album \"At Fillmore East\" in 1971 that catapulted the band to stardom. Considered one of the greatest live albums ever made, the two LP record opened with their version of Blind Willie McTell's \"Statesboro Blues,\" with Duane Allman on slide guitar. The album introduced fans to their fusion of blues, rock and jazz.

Duane Allman had quickly ascended to the pantheon of guitar heroes, not just from his contributions to the Allman band, but from his session work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and with Eric Clapton on the classic \"Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs\" album. But he was killed in a motorcycle accident in October 1971, just months after recording the Fillmore shows. Another motorcycle accident the following year claimed Oakley's life.

Keyboard player Chuck Leavell joined the band following Duane Allman's death and the band continued to soar. Their follow-up to the Fillmore album, \"Eat a Peach,\" became their first top 10 album and featured some of their most popular recordings, including \"Melissa\" and \"Blue Sky.\"

Gregg Allman said in a 1998 interview with The Associated Press that he and Betts mourned his brother's death in music.

\"We used to write songs in a graveyard in Macon,\" Allman said. \"One thing everybody thought was Duane would come back to haunt us if we did not keep going. He had the most passion for music of any man I've ever seen.\"

In a 2012 interview with The Associated Press, he said Duane remained on his mind every day. Once in a while, he could even feel his presence.

\"I can tell when he's there, man,\" Allman said. \"I'm not going to get all cosmic on you. But listen, he's there.\"

The 1970s brought more highly publicized turmoil: Allman was compelled to testify in a drug case against a former road manager for the band and his marriage to the actress and singer Cher was short-lived even by show business standards.

In 1975, Cher and Allman married three days after she divorced her husband and singing partner, Sonny Bono. Their marriage was tumultuous from the start; Cher requested a divorce just nine days after their Las Vegas wedding, although she dismissed the suit a month later.

Together they released a widely panned duets album under the name \"Allman and Woman.\" They had one child together, Elijah Blue, and Cher filed for legal separation in 1977. Allman said in an interview with Viva magazine in 1977 that he regretted marrying Cher and said that they probably could have fallen in love if it hadn't been for his drug abuse.

The Allman Brothers Band likewise split up in the 1980s and then re-formed several times over the years. A changing cast of players has included Derek Trucks, nephew of original drummer Butch Trucks, as well as guitarist Warren Haynes.

Starting in 1990, more than 20 years after its founding, the reunited band began releasing new music and found a new audience. In 1995 the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and they won a Grammy Award for best rock instrumental performance for \"Jessica\" the following year.

In 2000, Betts was ousted from the band via fax for alleged substance abuse and poor performance and he hasn't played with the band since.

Butch Trucks died in January 2017. Authorities said he shot himself in front of his wife at their Florida home.

In his memoir, Allman said he spent years overindulging in women, drugs and alcohol before getting sober in the mid-1990s. He said that after getting sober, he felt \"brand new\" at the age of 50.

\"I never believed in God until this,\" he said in an interview with The Associated Press in 1998. \"I asked him to bring me out of this or let me die before all the innings have been played. Now I have started taking on some spiritualism.\"

However, after all the years of unhealthy living he ended up with hepatitis C which severely damaged his liver. He underwent a liver transplant in 2010.

After the surgery, he turned music to help him recover and released his first solo album in 14 years \"Low Country Blues\" in 2011.

\"I think it's because you're doing something you love,\" Allman said in a 2011 interview with The Associated Press. \"I think it just creates a diversion from the pain itself. You've been swallowed up by something you love, you know, and you're just totally engulfed.\"

The band was honored with a lifetime achievement Grammy in 2012.

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Barbra Streisand is mourning the loss of her beloved dog, Sammie.

The 75-year-old star announced the news on her social media accounts Saturday, saying \"we cherish every moment of the 14 years we had with her.\"

On her Instagram page, Streisand has posted numerous photos of herself doting on the fluffy white Coton de Tulear, also known as the \"Royal Dog of Madagascar.\"

Streisand is fond of the breed and has had several Coton de Tulear in the past.

Streisand once told British newspaper The Independent Sammie is \"like the daughter I never had.\"

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) \u2014 Music legend Gregg Allman, whose bluesy vocals and soulful touch on the Hammond B-3 organ helped propel The Allman Brothers Band to superstardom and spawn Southern rock, died Saturday, his manager said. He was 69.

Allman died peacefully and surrounded by loved ones at his home near Savannah, Georgia, his manager, Michael Lehman, told The Associated Press. He blamed cancer for Allman's death.

\"It's a result of his reoccurrence of liver cancer that had come back five years ago,\" Lehman said in an interview. \"He kept it very private because he wanted to continue to play music until he couldn't.\"

Allman played his last concert in October as health problems forced him to cancel other 2016 shows. He announced on Aug. 5 that he was \"under his doctor's care at the Mayo Clinic\" due to \"serious health issues.\" Later that year, he canceled more dates, citing a throat injury. In March, he canceled performances for the rest of 2017.

Funeral arrangements had not been finalized Saturday. But Lehman said Allman would be buried alongside his late brother, founding Allman Brothers guitarist Duane Allman, at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, where the band got its start nearly five decades ago.

\"He'll be laid next to his brother, Duane,\" Lehman said. \"That's in his wishes.\"

Southern rock and country musician Charlie Daniels said via Twitter, \"Gregg Allman had a feeling for the blues very few ever have hard to believe that magnificent voice is stilled forever.\"

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, the rock star known for his long blond hair was raised in Florida by a single mother. Allman idolized his older brother, Duane, eventually joining a series of bands with him. Together they formed the nucleus of The Allman Brothers Band.

The original band featured extended jams, tight guitar harmonies by Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, rhythms from a pair of drummers and the smoky, blues-inflected voice of Gregg Allman. Songs such as \"Whipping Post,\" ''Ramblin' Man\" and \"Midnight Rider\" helped define what came to be known as Southern rock and opened the doors for such stars as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band.

In his 2012 memoir, \"My Cross to Bear,\" Allman described how Duane was a central figure in his life in the years after their father was murdered by a man he met in a bar. The two boys endured a spell in a military school before being swept up in rock music in their teens. Although Gregg was the first to pick up a guitar, it was Duane who excelled at it. So Gregg later switched to the organ.

They failed to crack success until they formed The Allman Brothers Band in 1969. Based in Macon, Georgia, the group featured Betts, drummers Jai Johanny \"Jaimoe\" Johanson and Butch Trucks and bassist Berry Oakley. They partied to excess while defining a sound that still excites millions.

Their self-titled debut album came out in 1969, but it was their seminal live album \"At Fillmore East\" in 1971 that catapulted the band to stardom.

Duane Allman had quickly ascended to the pantheon of guitar heroes, not just from his contributions to the Allman band, but from his session work with Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and with Eric Clapton on the classic \"Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs\" album. But he was killed in a motorcycle accident in October 1971, just months after recording the Fillmore shows. Another motorcycle accident the following year claimed Oakley's life. .

In a 2012 interview with The Associated Press, Gregg Allman said Duane remained on his mind every day. Once in a while, he could even feel his presence.

\"I can tell when he's there, man,\" Allman said. \"I'm not going to get all cosmic on you. But listen, he's there.\"

The 1970s brought more highly publicized turmoil: Allman was compelled to testify in a drug case against a former road manager for the band and his marriage to the actress and singer Cher was short-lived even by show business standards.

In 1975, Cher and Allman married three days after she divorced her husband and singing partner, Sonny Bono. Their marriage was tumultuous from the start; Cher requested a divorce just nine days after their Las Vegas wedding, although she dismissed the suit a month later.

Together they released a widely panned duets album under the name \"Allman and Woman.\" They had one child together, Elijah Blue, and Cher filed for legal separation in 1977.

Cher said via Twitter on Saturday, \"IVE TRIED.WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE.\"

The Allman Brothers Band likewise split up in the 1980s and then re-formed several times over the years. A changing cast of players has included Derek Trucks, nephew of original drummer Butch Trucks, as well as guitarist Warren Haynes.

Starting in 1990, more than 20 years after its founding, the reunited band began releasing new music and found a new audience. In 1995 the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and won a Grammy Award for best rock instrumental performance for \"Jessica\" the following year.

In 2000, Betts was ousted from the band via fax for alleged substance abuse and poor performance and he hasn't played with the band since.

Butch Trucks died in January 2017. Authorities said he shot himself in front of his wife at their Florida home.

Lehman said Allman had recently finished what would be his final album, titled Southern Blood and scheduled for release in September.

\"He actually just listened to a few tracks of it last night and was really passionate and excited for that record to be complete,\" Lehman said.

In his memoir, Allman said he spent years overindulging in women, drugs and alcohol before getting sober in the mid-1990s. He said that after getting sober, he felt \"brand new\" at the age of 50.

\"I never believed in God until this,\" he said in an interview with The Associated Press in 1998. \"I asked him to bring me out of this or let me die before all the innings have been played. Now I have started taking on some spiritualism.\"

However, after all the years of unhealthy living he ended up with hepatitis C which severely damaged his liver. He underwent a liver transplant in 2010.

The statement on Allman's website says that as he faced health problems, \"Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.\"

After the surgery, he turned music to help him recover and released his first solo album in 14 years \"Low Country Blues\" in 2011.

\"I think it's because you're doing something you love,\" Allman said in a 2011 interview with The Associated Press. \"I think it just creates a diversion from the pain itself. You've been swallowed up by something you love, you know, and you're just totally engulfed.\"

The band was honored with a lifetime achievement Grammy in 2012.

David Kowalski is putting his cycling miles to work this summer.

Every mile he logs in June will count toward his 500-mile goal in the Great Cycle Challenge, a nationwide fundraiser to benefit the Children\u2019s Cancer Research Fund.

A Realtor with Keller Williams Realty in Mechanicsville, Kowalski spends a lot of his spare time on a bike in the spring and summer anyway.

A former long-distance runner, Kowalski turned to biking a few years ago in order to limit the joint pounding. He usually rides 60 to 100 miles a week when the weather allows.

\u201cI don\u2019t look like a guy who bikes a lot,\u201d he said, chuckling. \u201cI also like to eat.\u201d

Last summer, he joined his brother Brian and a nephew to ride RAGBRAI, the Register\u2019s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. Sponsored by The Des Moines Register, the weeklong ride in July starts on the state\u2019s western border, the Missouri River, and ends on the eastern border, on the Mississippi River. The route changes slightly every year, but the distance is generally around 470 miles, with plenty of hills and heat to add to the challenge.

\u201cI\u2019m the only guy who could ride like that all week and gain weight,\u201d Kowalski said jokingly. \u201cThere was a different type of food at every stop.\u201d

This summer, the fundraising team doing the Great Cycle Challenge includes his brother Brian, who lives in West Virginia, and two nephews. In the middle of May, David Kowalski was the lead fundraiser in Virginia and Brian Kowalski held the top spot in West Virginia.

The brothers lost their father, 76-year-old Edward Kowalski, to cancer last November.

David Kowalski said he feels cheated by his father\u2019s swift-moving cancer. \u201cI can\u2019t imagine what parents feel like\u201d if they have a child with cancer.

Brian Kowalski did the Great Cycle Challenge in 2015.

\u201cI was interested in it, but I didn\u2019t think I had enough time,\u201d David Kowalski said.

When his brother asked him about doing it this year, he had added incentive \u2014 his father\u2019s battle with cancer \u2014 and he decided to make it work. They created \u201cTeam Justice\u201d and set their biking goals.

Most of their miles will be done independently. But they are planning to ride a full 104-mile loop on the Capital Trail between Jamestown and Richmond together one weekend. That will give them plenty of time to catch up as a family.

\u201c(Brian\u2019s) view on it, and it kind of mirrors mine, is that you can pick anyone off the street, and 99 percent of the time they\u2019ve been touched by cancer.\u201d

It\u2019s one thing to lose an aging parent to the disease.

\u201cWhen someone loses a child, it\u2019s tragic,\u201d David Kowalski said.

The Great Cycle Challenge will track their miles via a mobile app. This is the event\u2019s third year. In the previous two years, nearly 40,000 riders have traveled 3 million miles and raised more than $4.7 million.

David Kowalski isn\u2019t dreading the extra time on the bike. He had lower back issues before he started riding.

SATURDAY, May 27, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Safety should be on the front burner when you fire up the barbecue this Memorial Day, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says.

Propane used in gas grills is highly flammable and about 30 people in the United States are injured each year due to gas grill fires and explosions. Many of these incidents occur when someone lights a grill that hasn't been used in a while, or just after refilling and reattaching the gas container.

The CPSC said people should routinely perform a number of safety checks. Check the tubes that lead into the burner for blockages from insects or food grease. Use a pipe cleaner or wire to clear a blockage and push it through to the main part of the burner.

Inspect gas hoses for cracking, brittleness, holes and leaks, and make sure there are no sharp bends in the hose or tubing. Keep gas hoses as far away as possible from hot surfaces and dripping hot grease. If you can't move the hoses, install a heat shield to protect them.

If you smell gas, immediately turn off the gas and follow the manufacturer's instructions to check for gas leaks. Do not try to light the grill until the leak is fixed.

Never use a grill indoors, or in a garage, breezeway, carport, porch, or under any surface that can catch fire. When using a grill, keep it at least 10 feet away from the house or other building.

Always store propane containers upright, and never store spare containers under or near the grill or indoors.

Charcoal barbecues also pose safety risks. When burned, charcoal produces carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless, odorless gas that can accumulate to dangerous levels in closed spaces. Each year in the United States, about 30 people die and 100 are injured as a result of CO fumes from charcoal grills and hibachis used inside, according to the CPSC.

Never burn charcoal inside homes, vehicles, tents or campers. Charcoal produces CO until the charcoal is completely extinguished, so never store the grill indoors with freshly used coals.

Another potential barbecue-related safety threat is wire bristles from grill brushes. The bristles can break off, land on the grate and end up in grilled meats. If ingested, the bristles can cause potentially life-threatening injuries to the throat and digestive tract.

Instead of a wire brush, use grill-cleaning stones and bricks, bristle-free brushes made of metal coil, or grill brushes with nylon bristles, the experts suggest.

If you must use a wire brush, wipe the grate with a wet paper towel after using the brush and inspect the grill closely before cooking.

There's another option that's not likely to be popular with the grilling crowd.

\"You also could become a vegetarian,\" said Dr. David Grand, associate professor of diagnostic imaging at Brown University. \"We've only seen bristles lodged in meat. We haven't found any in grilled vegetables.\"

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Pollution from diesel engines may cause heart damage, a British study suggests.

\"There is strong evidence that particulate matter emitted mainly from diesel road vehicles is associated with increased risk of heart attack, heart failure and death,\" said lead author Dr. Nay Aung, a cardiologist and research fellow at Queen Mary University of London.

Aung's team reviewed data from more than 4,200 people in the United Kingdom. The study participants had undergone magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the heart. The researchers then calculated average diesel pollution exposure based on the study participants' home addresses.

Although the study wasn't designed to prove cause-and-effect, the researchers think the pollution stimulates an inflammatory response.

\"Inhalation of fine particulate matter [PM2.5, which refers to atmospheric particulate matter with a diameter less than 2.5 micrometers] causes localized inflammation of the lungs followed by a more systemic inflammation affecting the whole body,\" Aung said.

And, as exposure rises, the larger the heart gets and the worse it performs, he said. Both of these factors are associated with increased illness and death from heart disease.

The study findings were scheduled to be presented on Friday at a European Society of Cardiology (ESC) meeting in Prague.

\"Reducing PM2.5 emission should be an urgent public health priority and the worst offenders such as diesel vehicles should be addressed with policy measures,\" Aung said in an ESC news release.

Aung said there are some things people can do to reduce their risk.

\"Avoid times and places where there is a high level of pollution,\" he said. \"If you want to cycle into work and there is heavy traffic around that time, then try to find a quieter route. Walk on the part of the pavement furthest from cars to reduce the amount of pollution you breathe in.

\"Those with cardiorespiratory diseases should limit the time spent outdoors during highly polluted periods such as rush hours,\" he added.

Studies presented at meetings are generally viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Near-drowning victims are more likely to recover with good brain function if bystanders immediately begin chest compressions rather than wait for emergency personnel to arrive, researchers report.

\"What we found is that when bystanders begin CPR [cardiopulmonary resuscitation] before emergency personnel arrive, the person has a higher chance of leaving the hospital and leading a life reasonably close to the one they had before the drowning,\" said study leader Dr. Joshua Tobin. He is an associate professor of clinical anesthesiology at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine.

Drowning claims about 10 lives a day in the United States, the study authors said in a school news release.

The new study included more than 900 cases of people who suffered cardiac arrest after almost drowning.

\"When we talk about cardiac arrest, there's no doubt that we want people to survive. But surviving and being in a persistent vegetative state would not be considered a success by most people. That's why we chose to stratify the results by favorable or unfavorable neurological outcomes,\" Tobin said.

The investigators found that near-drowning victims who got CPR from a bystander were three times more likely to do well, as far as brain function was concerned.

But near-drowning victims appeared to do worse if they were treated with automated external defibrillators (AEDs), which are common in public places. The researchers aren't sure how to explain the discrepancy.

\"It's difficult to say why AED application prior to [emergency medical services] arrival portended a worse neurological outcome in this study. Perhaps AED application distracted bystanders from giving good, uninterrupted CPR,\" Tobin said.

\"What we do know, though, is that this study adds to a growing body of evidence that bystander CPR improves outcomes in cardiac arrest,\" he added. \"It also provides a compelling reason for people to learn this lifesaving technique.\"

Even if you don't know CPR, you may be able to help someone suffering from cardiac arrest with help from an emergency dispatcher, Tobin said. \"Call 911, do chest compressions at 100 beats per minute, and you could save someone's life,\" he said.

The study is published in the June issue of Resuscitation.

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- The rising nighttime temperatures that come with climate change could mean poorer sleep for millions, a new study suggests.

Americans' reported nights of insufficient sleep more than double as nighttime temperatures rise during summer months, an analysis of federal health data and weather records concludes.

And people will have even more trouble getting rest in years to come due to climate change, predicts study lead author Nick Obradovich. He's a postdoctoral fellow with Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.

\"Climate change is likely to increase the frequency of unusually warm nighttime temperatures,\" Obradovich said. \"If you look at the climate model output for temperatures in 2050 and 2099, we project there will be an increase in insufficient sleep as a result of that increase in temperature going forward.\"

Americans will experience 9 million more nights of poor sleep in a month in which nightly temperatures average 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit higher than normal. Annually, that's 110 million extra nights of insufficient sleep, the researchers say.

Obradovich and his colleagues gathered data on Americans' sleep quality from an ongoing survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One question asks how many days during the previous month participants did not get enough sleep.

The researchers then gathered weather data for the city in which each survey participant lived, and compared nighttime temperatures to reports of sleeplessness.

The investigators found that hot weather is hardest on low-income people and seniors:

\"The hottest times of the year and in the most vulnerable populations are where we see the largest effects,\" Obradovich said. People with little money either live in places without air conditioning or can't afford to run their AC all the time, he noted.

Meanwhile, seniors are not as able to regulate their body temperature as well as younger people can, making them more vulnerable to heat, Obradovich pointed out.

Sleep expert Dr. Douglas Kirsch said the study proposes a \"reasonable supposition.\" He is medical director of Carolinas HealthCare Sleep Medicine in Charlotte, N.C., and was not involved with the research.

\"We know if it's really hot, you don't sleep well,\" said Kirsch. \"The body tends to prefer to be cool to sleep well. People who have sleep disorders in particular are much more prone to need cooler temperatures in order to sleep well.\"

At the same time, the projections of sleeplessness due to climate change should be taken with a grain of salt, said Kirsch, who is also a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine's board of directors.

The study authors \"make a whole bunch of projections about how they believe if everything maps in linear fashion, as climate change worsens then sleep must get worse,\" Kirsch said. \"I think that may be a little bit harder of an argument to make. It makes a number of assumptions.\"

However, Obradovich and Kirsch agreed that poor sleep can have a huge impact on your quality of life and ability to work.

Kirsch said good sleep helps maintain your ability to concentrate, pay attention and maintain a stable mood.

\"All those things become poorly regulated when you don't get sufficient sleep,\" Kirsch said. \"Insufficient sleep is likely to lead to people not performing at their best.\"

And Obradovich suggested, more frequent hot nights also could lead to an increase in deaths among the elderly, who need sleep to allow them to recover from heat stress.

These data are based on the United States, he said, one of the wealthiest countries in the world and a nation blessed with relatively temperate weather.

\"If we had such data from India or Brazil, we might expect the effects would be larger in those countries,\" Obradovich said.

The study was published May 26 in the journal Science Advances.

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Depression appears to raise the risk of falls in elderly people, but the proper dose of psychiatric medication may eliminate that risk, a new study suggests.

\"Many interventions to prevent falls are expensive and time-intensive, but this is a simple and inexpensive matter of encouraging continued use of psychiatric medication while improving monitoring of fall risk and adjusting medication appropriately,\" said lead researcher Geoffrey Hoffman. He is a research fellow and an assistant professor of nursing at the University of Michigan's School of Nursing.

To examine the link between depression and fall risk, Hoffman's team looked at falls involving more than 7,200 people 65 and older who were part of the National Health and Retirement Study between 2006 and 2010.

A moderate rise in symptoms of depression among older people was linked with a 30 percent increase in falling within two years. But when the researchers added medication use into the mix, the strength of the association between depressive symptoms and falls dropped to insignificant levels.

Hoffman cautioned that doctors and older patients should still weigh the risks and benefits of psychiatric medication.

And physicians should be particularly careful when prescribing and dosing certain medications such as tranquilizers, antidepressants and anxiety drugs for their older patients.

Falls among the elderly cost about $30 billion a year in the United States, and up to half of nursing home admissions follow a fall, the researchers noted. About one-third of Americans 65 or older fall each year, and about 10 percent of all elderly people are injured during falls.

The findings were published recently in the journal Social Science & Medicine.

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- A drug first used in the early 1900s to treat sleeping sickness has shown promise in an early trial as a potential treatment for autism.

The study involved just 10 boys, aged 5 to 14, with autism. This was the first human trial to attempt to replicate encouraging results seen in work with mice, the researchers noted. The drug is called suramin.

\"The main finding was that a single dose of suramin was safe and produced improvements in language, social interaction and restricted and/or repetitive behaviors in five children with ASD [autism spectrum disorder],\" said study author Dr. Robert Naviaux. He is co-director of the Mitochondrial and Metabolic Disease Center at the University of California, San Diego's School of Medicine.

He added that no such improvements were observed among the five children not treated with suramin.

However, the gains from the one-dose treatment proved to be temporary, fading within a matter of weeks, the researchers said.

Naviaux stressed that the latest effort was just \"a start.\" At the moment, suramin is not approved for any use in the United States, and much more follow-up research will be needed, he cautioned. The drug is used for sleeping sickness, which is caused by parasites.

Roughly 1 in every 68 children develops some form of autism, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Exactly what causes autism remains unclear. But this latest trial set out to test one specific theory known as the \"cell danger hypothesis.\"

The theory suggests that at least some cases of autism arise when the body's normal reaction to stress and injury goes haywire.

In such a scenario, the usual healing process -- which involves the temporary halting of communication between cells -- ends up becoming permanent, causing cells to behave as if they're continually under assault. The theory suggests this dynamic might lead to autism, the researchers explained.

Suramin, however, has the ability to block a specific molecule known as ATP, which relentlessly triggers this abnormal healing process, the researchers said.

Essentially, explained Naviaux, \"suramin is a molecular armistice therapy. It sends the message to the cell that the war is over.\"

Five of the 10 study patients were given one intravenous infusion of suramin, while the other five were treated with a placebo drug.

All the boys treated with suramin ended up showing significant -- and, in some cases, immediate -- improvements, with no serious side effects, researchers said.

The most notable changes involved improved socializing, communication and playing. Those in the suramin group also showed an increased ability to remain calm and focused, while displaying less repetitive behavior and better coping skills.

One parent said a son displayed more emotional range, improved eye contact, greater interest in socializing, and a new sense of calmness within hours following treatment, the researchers said.

And two children who had never spoken in their lives did so for the first time, within roughly one week after treatment, the researchers added.

Suramin also appeared to boost the ability to benefit from standard treatment, such as speech therapy and behavior therapy.

However, all the improvements from the one-dose treatment proved to be temporary, with gains ultimately fading over a matter of weeks.

\"[But] we are cautiously optimistic,\" said Naviaux, while noting that it will be at least four to five years before follow-up research is complete. \"The science,\" he said, \"cannot be rushed.\"

The findings were published May 26 in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology.

Dr. Matthew Lorber, a child and adolescent psychiatrist with Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, reacted to the findings with caution.

\"The improvement in the children studied was robust,\" he noted, \"which is cause for hope, since we do not have any approved treatments for the root of autism.

\"Unfortunately,\" Lorber added, \"the study was so small -- only five children actually received the medication -- that we cannot come to any real conclusions.\"

The upshot, Lorber said, is that \"until suramin is tested in a much larger group of people with autism, we cannot move ahead using it as a potential treatment. In addition, suramin in traditional doses can have serious side effects, and it is important that doctors do not start using it for children with autism because the data is scant, and we need much more scientific research.\"

HealthDay reached out to two advocacy groups, Autism Speaks and the Autism Society of America, but did not receive comment.

FRIDAY, May 26, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- A new drug might help ease the pain and disability of a form of arthritis often linked to psoriasis.

According to Stanford University researchers, psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory joint disorder tied to an out-of-control immune response. The disease affects about one in every 200 people and is often accompanied by the autoimmune skin disorder psoriasis.

Psoriatic arthritis typically arises after the age of 30 and can bring stiffness, pain and swelling of the joints, leading to real disability if treatments don't help.

The new study focused on more than 300 adult patients across 10 countries. These patients were no longer seeing an effect from standard biologic drugs or had never experienced a benefit in the first place.

That's not uncommon.

\"Only about half of psoriatic arthritis patients who are given TNF inhibitors get better,\" study lead author Dr. Mark Genovese said in a Stanford news release.

So, his team tried out a newer drug called Taltz (ixekizumab), already approved to fight psoriasis. The study was funded by the drug's maker, Eli Lilly & Co.

Patients were randomly assigned to receive injections of either Taltz or an inactive placebo. Over 6 months, about one-third got Taltz injections every two weeks, another third received the placebo every two weeks, while the remaining third received alternate injections of Taltz and the placebo.

More than half (53 percent) of those treated with the drug experienced at least a 20 percent reduction in the number of tender and swollen joints, compared to about 20 percent of those receiving the placebo, said Genovese. He's a professor of immunology and rheumatology at Stanford University Medical Center.

One expert in psoriatic arthritis was encouraged by the findings.

Taltz \"is another new option for patients with psoriatic arthritis,\" said Dr. Waseem Mir, a rheumatologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. \"The data shown in this article supports that certain patients who do not do well with other biologics that are in the market for psoriatic arthritis will now have another option for treatment of their painful disease,\" he said.

One potential side effect of these immune-focused drugs is a heightened vulnerability to infectious disease. However, Genovese said there was little difference in this regard between people taking Taltz and those on a placebo.

The study was published online May 24 in The Lancet.

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 It was smooth sailing to the top spot at the box office for \"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,\" but the waters were choppier for the Dwayne Johnson comedy \"Baywatch.\"

Studio estimates on Sunday say the fifth installment of the \"Pirates of the Caribbean\" franchise commandeered $62.2 million in its first three days in theaters.

The Johnny Depp-starrer is projected to take in $76.6 million over the four-day holiday weekend.

The R-rated \"Baywatch,\" meanwhile, is sinking like a rock. The critically derided update of the 1990s TV show earned only $18.1 million over the weekend against a nearly $70 million price tag.

CANNES, France (AP) \u2014 The Latest on the Cannes Film Festival (all times local):

5:51 p.m.

The Cannes Film Festival Jury has done its job. But its president isn't letting slip which film it has picked for the coveted Palme d'Or award.

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar told a French BFM television reporter who managed to squeeze a few words out of him that the award deliberations Sunday were \"very fast.\"

Almodovar said: \"We did our work.\"

But for the names of the winners: Stay tuned.

___

4:41 p.m.

The Cannes Film Festival is gearing up to award its prestigious Palme d'Or at a glitzy award ceremony.

No single movie has emerged as the clear favorite among the 19 in competition for the coveted prize being awarded Sunday evening.

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar presided over the competition jury. Almodovar has made clear that he doesn't want the Palme d'Or, the festival's top prize, to go to a movie that isn't shown on big screens.

That could bode ill for Bong Joon-ho's \"Okja\" and Noah Baumbach's \"The Meyerowitz Stories,\" the first Netflix releases ever selected to be in competition for the Palme d'Or.

Regarded as cinema's most prestigious festival, Cannes is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Organizers have declared that next year, streaming-only films will not be accepted for the competition.

CANNES, France (AP) \u2014 The Cannes Film Festival is gearing up to award its prestigious Palme d'Or at a glitzy award ceremony.

No single movie has emerged as the clear favorite among the 19 in competition for the coveted prize being awarded Sunday evening.

Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar presided over the competition jury. Almodovar has made clear that he doesn't want the Palme d'Or, the festival's top prize, to go to a movie that isn't shown on big screens.

That could bode ill for Bong Joon-ho's \"Okja\" and Noah Baumbach's \"The Meyerowitz Stories,\" the first Netflix releases ever selected to be in competition for the Palme d'Or.

Regarded as cinema's most prestigious festival, Cannes is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Organizers have declared that next year, streaming-only films will not be accepted for the competition.

There are no deleted scenes in 'Wonder Woman'.

Director Patty Jenkins revealed that the final cut of the movie was remarkably close to her initial vision and the only cuts made were to \"tighten\" up the narrative.

Speaking to Collider, she said: \"You know, it's not like a long journey didn't happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. Little changes to the final battle, that was really it. I think that what I ended up finding about the final battle was I was hitting emotional points for Diana that I really wanted to hit but I felt a craving for some other kinds of emotional gratification and engagement that we tried to accentuate even more.

\"I think what you learn is rhythm, tone, where the jokes are happening but in our case, I just now can finally say all this. We didn't cut one scene in this movie nor did we change the order of one scene in this movie from the script that we went in shooting with.\"

Meanwhile, Patty recently gushed about Gal Gadot, who stars as the titular superhero.

She said: \"I can't say enough good things about her.

\"She is just an incredibly good Wonder Woman in that she naturally exudes all of the strength of character and kindness, warmth and charm come so naturally to her. That doesn't always happen with superheroes. I think a lot of people who get cast as superheroes, are sometimes true to the character and sometimes not. But when they are you never forget it, like Christopher Reeve with 'Superman'. People stay focused on that forever after.\"

Harry Styles found filming 'Dunkirk' a gruelling experience.

The 23-year-old singer will make his feature film debut in director Christopher Nolan's upcoming World War Two movie - which tells the story of how a fleet of British ships and boats, many manned by volunteers, rescued Allied troops from a French beach - and admitted that filming long scenes in water took its toll.

Speaking to lwlies.com, Harry said: \"A week before we started, Emma (Thomas, the film's producer) called me and said, 'By the way, I forgot to ask... you can swim right?' It was a relief to know that I could because there was so much swimming involved. However much you train for it, filming in the water for an hour in full clothes is a gruelling experience.\"

Harry also revealed that he was surprised by Christopher Nolan's energy.

He said: \"The biggest thing I learned from making this movie is that Chris Nolan doesn't sit down. He leads by example, so any time there's a break given, it's because he knows everyone else needs one.

\"It makes it really hard to complain because you know he's been there longer than you, you know he's the first one there and he's going to be the last one to leave. For him, it's all about making the project the best that it can be and that's infectious.\"

And Harry says the movie is ultimately a story about survival.

He explained: \"From a character point of view, the story is stripped back to basic instinct. It's all about that survival instinct and how different people reacted to the situation in different ways. So you have clashes and tension between different characters and that intertwines with the land, air and sea themes.\"

Paris Jackson's \"role model\" is Emma Watson.

The aspiring actress was delighted to meet the 'Beauty and the Beast' star at the recent MTV Movie & TV Awards in Los Angeles and hopes they can collaborate professionally in the future.

She told Grazia magazine: \"I love her, and it would be great to work with her in the future. She's my role model.\"

Onlookers at the event say Paris approached Emma at her table during a break in the ceremony, and was delighted when the former 'Harry Potter' star gave her her phone number and said the 'Star' actress could call her for help and advice.

The source said: \"Paris rushed over to Emma's table during an ad break and gushed about how inspired she is by her work.

\"She was a huge fan of 'Harry Potter' growing up and was thrilled when Emma offered to be on hand with advice, now that Paris has moved into acting.

\"They swapped numbers and Emma blew her a kiss before Paris ran back to her table.\"

It was previously claimed the 19-year-old star - who is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson - has shunned advice from making it big from her own family members.

A source said: \"She's not leaning on the family at all for advice. She sees people not willing to work hard, not willing to take things to the next level ... Laziness and reliance on the family name.\"

Paris' attitude is, in part, motivated by her father's experiences with the other members of the Jackson family.

The insider explained: \"Paris has realised a lot of what her dad experienced with his family - bitterness, jealousy, manipulation, even hate.\"

However, one person Paris has been willing to take advice from is her older brother Prince.

A source said: \"Prince, believe it or not, has been the single individual who has been guiding his sister. For a time, Paris wanted to honour her father by becoming a singer.\"

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Take a seat, \"Thor.\"

Scattered plans among Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas to host women-only screenings of the upcoming \"Wonder Woman\" movie have produced both support and some grumbling about gender discrimination.

Various locations have taken to social media in response, including the operators of the Brooklyn theater promising on Twitter to funnel proceeds from women-only screenings in early June to Planned Parenthood. And by women only, they mean staff, too.

Some of the screenings were already selling out despite social media haters, many of whom are men, and several have been added.

The offer of special screenings began recently in Austin, Texas, where Alamo has held specialty screenings in the past for military veterans and others. As for \"Wonder Woman,\" the Alamo in Brooklyn posted a statement online saying what better way to celebrate the most iconic superheroine than with \"an all-female screening?\"

\"Apologies, gentlemen, but we're embracing our girl power and saying 'No Guys Allowed' for several special shows at the Alamo Downtown Brooklyn. And when we say 'Women (and people who identify as women)only,' we mean it. So lasso your geeky girlfriends together and grab your tickets to this celebration of one of the most enduring and inspiring characters ever created.\"

The movie opens June 2 based on the DC Comics character. It was directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) \u2014 Spencer Kuhlman was playing junior hockey in Canada when a knee injury wiped out his hopes of playing in college. With time on his hands, Kuhlman turned to another passion \u2014 aviation \u2014 and soon lost himself in the pleasures of drone photography.

Kuhlman is a finalist in a surprisingly popular first-year film festival that aims to highlight the possibilities of art from above. The festival, part of an annual drone conference that attracts hundreds of participants to a state that has invested $40 million in the unmanned aircraft industry, drew 42 entries from 21 countries.

Kuhlman's loosely scripted \"Across The World\" entry relies on clips from travels to Norway, Canada, Hawaii and across the continental U.S.

\"There's a lot of gliding over locations at the beginning,\" he said. \"As soon as the beat of music picks up, it's more like people jumping and a lot more activity going on.\"

Kuhlman and other entrants will find out how they did Thursday, when winners are announced at the two-day Drone Focus conference. It's the third year for the conference, which this year counts Labor Secretary Elaine Chao among some 50 speakers.

\"Apparently there's a bigger appetite for film festivals in the drone space than we even imagined,\" said Greg Tehven, executive director of Emerging Prairie, the nonprofit that sponsors the conference.

The festival is nothing like those put on for traditional film. Entries had to be 5 minutes or less, with at least half the footage from drone cameras.

Categories included narrative, landscape and architecture, showreel, lifestyle and work by students. Conference attendees will also vote on a people's choice award.

One of the judges, longtime professional photographer John Borge, said the learning curve for filming with drones can be steep. When he started using drones about four years ago, it was a fairly crude process and he needed to think differently about using light, movement, composition and flow.

The strongest films he judged were the ones \"where you felt you were involved with it and it took you somewhere.\" He said there are times that an irresistible shot needs to be cut because it doesn't mesh with the rest of the piece.

\"Sometimes there is such a cool shot but it doesn't fit, but you can tell they just had to use it. It was so great, it was so stunning, it was so beautiful, but it didn't tie together,\" Borge said. \"The tricky thing, I think, is to make great video that isn't just great because it's shot from the air.\"

Kuhlman, who plans to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in the fall, said he had a great time making his film and expressing his creativity. He and a friend started a clothing line six months ago, and they plan to use drone video and photography to promote it.

\"Flying the drone really made me forget about my injury,\" Kuhlman said. \"Editing videos and doing that was truly an escape. It would be quite an honor to win, to be honest. It would give me a ton of joy.\"
