"Sidelined: Concussions in Sports"
Concussions do long-term damage to memory and cognitive ability,
according to the latest research. An upcoming KVIE
highlights the dangers of sports-related
concussions, and today we'll talk with Kelly Peterson,
three-time Emmy Award-winning documentary producer, George
, author of "Concussion Rules
" and former San Francisco
49er, and Doug Cosbie, former Dallas Cowboy.
From its introduction in
the 1920s via the clunky metal Rollei camera to Instagram, a photo
sharing phone app, square photos have been around for a very long
time. There's a certain intrigue to square photos that rectangular
images lack, and here to talk with us about this mysterious beauty
, Sacramento photographer and Instagram extraordinaire
, and Rebecca Gregg,
lead curator of XII: Square exhibit
juried selection of square photographs at the Viewpoint
Kushman by the Bottle
Just in time for the
end of the holidays, Capital Public Radio's resident wine expert
(and occasional guest host) Rick Kushman
joins us for the next installment
of "Kushman by the Bottle," with advice on sparkling wines, which
aren't just for celebrations.
Kushman's Sparkling Wine
La Marca Proseco ($15): This Italian sparkling is
fresh, a little frothy, and seems a tiny bit sweet because of the
fruit. A crowd pleaser.
Domaine Chandon Brut Classic and Domaine Carneros Taittinger
Brut (Both $20-ish): Both are vibrant and clean, and both have
mouthful of fruit. Of the two, I'm a bigger fan of the Domaine
Carneros Brut and its soft, yeasty undertones.
Schramsberg Blanc de Bland ($30): This is the top
American-owned sparkling wine house and this wine is rich and round
but still bright.
Piper Heidsieck Champagne Brut ($34): Everything a
genuine Champagne should be. It hits the sweet spot between the dry
crispness of French sparklers and the richer fruit flavors
Veuve Clicquot Brut ($42): This is a go-to Champagne
for lots of people. Starts with apples, pears and hints of bread
and yeast, then finishes crisp and clean.
