What makes Houston so attractive (and ugly) for on-demand delivery

Houston's seen plenty of on-demand delivery services in the last year, starting with grocery-delivery company Instacart, to courier services, to alcohol on-demand. The concepts are pretty straight-forward. Users can order something, be it groceries, beer or documents, via their smartphone, tablet or Web browser. In a short amount of time, that service or product is delivered to you if you're within the company's delivery range. Costs might be slightly higher to compensate the driver, but these services?

Stephen Curry’s fall offers reminder that basketball isn’t immune to concussions

By Ron Kroichick Stephen Curry?s harrowing fall Monday night in Houston did more than scare his teammates and Warriors fans ? it also re-ignited the conversation about concussions in sports. Most chatter in recent years has focused on the long-term risks for football players who sustain head injuries. But as Curry?s crash to the hardwood painfully illustrated, basketball is not immune to the complicated debate. Curry was not diagnosed with a concussion after his injury, which occurred when he leaped in the air to try to block a shot during the second quarter of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. Instead, Curry flipped over Houston?s Trevor Ariza, twisted awkwardly [...]

Astros score four unanswered in closing frames to top Orioles

BALTIMORE ? This is one 30th celebration where nobody?s longing for years past. No Astros team has reached 30 wins faster than this year?s club, reaching the milestone Tuesday night at Camden Yards with a 4-1 win over the Orioles. Just two years ago, the ?Stros finished the entire season with 51 wins. Now, at 30-17 and with the calendar still in May, they stand as the only American League team to reach 30 victories. ?That?s good,? manager A.J. Hinch said with a little smile. ?We need more wins, but that?s a good accomplishment.? The Astros have been better than anyone tacking on runs from the seventh inning on, and [...]

Rockets-Warriors Game 4 becomes ESPN’s most-watched of the playoffs

The Rockets? win-or-go-home victory Monday night was ESPN?s most-watched NBA playoff game of the season, with an average audience of 8.28 million viewers, up 59 percent for Spurs-Grizzlies Game 4 in 2013 and 29 percent from 6.42 million for Spurs-Thunder last year on TNT. The 5.0 Nielsen household rating compared to 3.2 for the 2013 game and 4.2 for the 2014 game on TNT. In San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, the 19.5 rating was the best ever for an NBA game on an ESPN network dating back to 2003. The game rated 14.1 in Houston, but power outages likely limited the audience. Only 688 Nielsen-metered homes reported in for Monday compared to [...]

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick apologizes for ‘insensitive’ Houston flood post

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick apologized Tuesday afternoon for a questionable Instagram post about the flooding that hit the greater Houston area late Monday and early Tuesday.

Dwight Howard cleared to play in Game 5; category-1 flagrant foul vs. Bogut stands

By Jonathan Feigen and Jenny Dial Creech Rockets center Dwight Howard was cleared to play in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals after the NBA ruled that his flagrant foul in Game 3 would not be upgraded. Howard was assessed a category-1 flagrant foul for striking Warriors center Andrew Bogut as they headed up the floor in the third quarter on Monday. The NBA ruled Bogut was holding Howard and that Howard was trying to break free. Had the NBA upgraded the foul to a category-2 flagrant foul, Howard would have automatically been suspended for the next game. A catergory-2 flagrant foul does not come with an automatic suspension [...]

The Rockets and the Warriors were able to leave the Toyota Center and avoid the severe weather on Monday night. Rockets coach Kevin McHale said that all his players made it home safely during or after the storms that surged through the area overnight. ?I live a block and a half away from the arena so I was able to make it home pretty easily,?

Washburn Tunnel Opens – This Forgotten Day in Houston

May 27, 1950: On this day, the Washburn Tunnel opened to traffic underneath the Houston Ship Channel. By way of this two-lane underwater way, you can get from Galena Park to Pasadena without taking a ferry. The tunnel was named after Harris County auditor Harry L.

Spanning 3,791 feet, it?s four times the size of tallest building in Houston, the JP Morgan Chase Tower. On the top of the tunnel, there are three fans that exchange air every two minutes to keep out high levels of carbon dioxide. Every twelfth [...]

Court won't lift hold on Obama immigration action

A federal appeals court in New Orleans has denied a request to lift an injunction blocking President Barack Obama's executive action to protect millions of immigrants from deportation. In a split decision, two of three judges on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled to leave the injunction in place, finding that Justice Department attorneys had not done enough to disprove that Texas and 25 other states suing the government lack standing. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen found the Obama administration had not followed federal rule-making procedures when it announced plans to expand the 2012 program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which offers deportation reprieves to some young immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

The student dancers and musicians continued performing, with Superintendent Terry Grier in the audience, as sheets of rain soaked the roads. The Houston Independent School District initially said classes would be delayed by two hours Tuesday, posting the alert on Twitter at 4:33 a.m. About half an hour later, the district announced that schools would be closed.
