Eli Manning has some important family history that took place at the Rose Bowl , but he had never set foot in the historic venue until recently, when shooting an episode of “Eli’s Places” that’s focused on the epic national championship showdown between USC and Texas. “It’s different being from the South and growing up in New Orleans,” Manning said. “The Rose Bowl wasn’t as big or known for me growing up as for a lot of people. The whole history of everything behind it was really interesting.” The episode, which debuts at 9 p.m. Tuesday on ESPN+, features quarterbacks Matt Leinart of USC and Vince Young of Texas, who forged a friendship after that 2006 Rose Bowl.

Blue pumpkins, whether they are used to hold candy or for decoration, are often used as an indication that a house is food-allergen-friendly - and that non-food treats such as glow-sticks or stickers will be given out to trick-or-treaters.

Registered nurse Luis Medina walked into his shift in December and was told a positive Covid-19 patient was resisting wearing his oxygen mask. Despite repeated attempts by a fellow nurse, they said, it was hard to communicate with the patient, because he spoke Spanish. Medina, 25, who works at a community hospital near La Mirada, California, went to see the patient and explained in his native language the importance of wearing the mask and the consequences of not doing so. "Just having that language barrier and being able to address that, the patient ended up getting better, because he kept the oxygen mask on," said Medina, a graduate of and part-time professor at Mount Saint Mary's University in Los Angeles.

It was also what Villarruel, the dean of the prestigious University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing, didn’t learn. Her mother never spoke to her about sex. The talk was “cuídate," (take care of yourself), she said. Yet, as one of the few Latina bilingual nursing researchers in her field during the height of the HIV epidemic, Villarruel helped create a widely used curriculum, called an intervention, that teaches Latinos how to reduce their risk for HIV, sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies. The curriculum’s name: Cuídate. “Despite what my background is, I can’t just rely on my own experience.
