New Footage Of The Metrodome Roof Collapse

While not as dramatic as the video captured by Fox, there was new footage released on Thursday of the Metrodome roof collapse from last December.

The Metrodome landlords voted unanimously to replace the snow-damaged roof with a goal of finishing by Aug. 1 at an estimated coast of $18.3 million.

ARMSTRONG TIED TO THREE TESTS INDICATING UNUSUALLY HIGH TESTOSTERONE – EPISTOSTERONE LEVELS

According to Dr. Donald Catlin’s estimate, his lab at UCLA performed more than two dozen tests of Armstrong between 1990 and 2000. In May 1999, USA Cycling sent a formal request to Catlin for past test results – specifically, testosterone-epitestosterone (T:E) ratios – for a cyclist identified by a source with knowledge of the request as Lance Armstrong. Three results indicated high T:E ratios, specifically: a 9.0-to-1 ratio from a sample collected on June 23, 1993; a 7.6-to-1 from July 7, 1994; and a 6.5-to-1 from June 4, 1996. Read more
