Washington (state) http://www.kunc.org en Natural Disasters Are Rare, But So Is Mudslide Insurance http://www.kunc.org/post/natural-disasters-are-rare-so-mudslide-insurance Depending on whom you talk to, either no one could have predicted the massive mudslide in Oso, Wash., last month — or it was a disaster just waiting to happen. But if homeowners in the slide's path are typical of most people in this part of the country, they were not insured against this kind of event — and are unlikely to see an insurance payout.<p>That's because standard homeowner's insurance doesn't cover mudslides.

But this legalization of recreational marijuana is taking place without much information on the possible health effects.<p>"We should have been doing a lot more research to find out just how useful it is, how it affects the brain, et cetera, et cetera," according to <a href="http://asp.cumc.columbia.edu/facdb/profile_list.asp?uni=hdk3&DepAffil=Psychiatry">Dr. Mon, 03 Mar 2014 08:33:00 +0000 Richard Knox 54397 at http://www.kunc.org Evidence On Marijuana's Health Effects Is Hazy At Best Seahawks Say They Figured Out Manning's Signals http://www.kunc.org/post/seahawks-say-they-figured-out-mannings-signals Here's a window into why the Seattle Seahawks' defense so thoroughly dominated the Denver Broncos' offense during Sunday's Super Bowl, <a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/02/02/270657316/seattle-dominates-denver-to-win-its-first-super-bowl-victory" target="_blank">which Seattle won 43-8</a>.<p>Yes, it certainly seems as if Seattle's players were just bigger and faster and played better.<p>But like all teams do, Seattle spent the better part of two weeks before the game studying the Denver offense.
