San Francisco 49ers @ Dallas Cowboys: Live Updates and Analysis

This is the live blog for the San Francisco 49ers’ Week 15 road game against the Dallas Cowboys. I will update this with information and analysis from my living room.

8:00 There’s breaking news. Jimmy Garoppolo almost certainly won’t play again this season, but George Kittle might, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Apparently, Garoppolo’s ankle injury has not fully recovered and there’s a risk he would reinjure it if he were to play again this season. Plus, both he and the 49ers want him healthy this offseason, presumably so the 49ers can trade him at his highest value. I’m sure the 49ers would consider keeping Garoppolo if the salary cap weren’t going down next year. But it is going down, due to the pandemic. No one could have foreseen this happening a year ago. And so, Garoppolo most likely will be a cap casualty. The 49ers will

Eat Beans to Lose Weight and Live Longer, Expert Says

A guiding light for many aspiring healthy eaters is the world’s Blue Zones, the small, outlier regions on the planet where people live much longer than expected lifespans. I’m talking about far-flung places like the Barbagia region of Sardinia, Italy; Ikaria, Greece; the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica; and Okinawa, Japan, where women live the longest lifespans in the known world.

According to a new CNBC article by Dan Buettner, a National Geographic Fellow, longevity researcher, and author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, there are several general dieting rules that basically all of these healthy people adhere to.

In 2018, I mustered up the courage to tell my mom that I had been secretly seeing a mental health practitioner since 2016.

She called me selfish and dismissed my pain and need for professional help. It was the second time that I had told her that I sought therapy to deal with anxiety and depression. The first time I told her was in 2013, months after I stopped going due
