Saint Louis FC Falls At Home To San Antonio FC

It seemed like Saint Louis FC had a pretty solid shot at the USL playoffs early in the 2016 season. After Saturday night’s 2-0 loss to San Antonio FC, making the playoffs seems all but off the table. A sell-out crowd of 5,262 fans were on hand at World Wide Technology Soccer Park.

The loss dropped STLFC to 10-7-8 on the season and 29 points on the season. They set in 12th place in the USL West with five games to go. SAFC currently holds the final playoff spot in the conference with 34 points.

STLFC has a midweek game this week on Wednesday at home against Oklahoma City Energy FC. They will be without Irvin Hererra and Ryan Thompson, who will both be on international duty.

SLU’s 3-0 start is the program’s best since 2008. The team plays again on Friday in Nebraska against Valparaiso.

Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner Separating

Anthony Weiner is involved in another lewd photo scandal because of course Anthony Weiner is involved in another lewd photo scandal. It was announced today that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, and Weiner are separating.

Abedin is a top aide to Hillary Clinton so, there is probably a good joke somewhere in here about destroying things like lewd pictures.

Mylan Set to Offer “Authorized Generic” Version Of EpiPen

Mylan, the drug company currently in the news for being awful, is set to unveil an “authorized generic” version of their EpiPen, as announced today.

The official EpiPen costs $608.81, much more than the $100 it cost in 2007. The new “authorized generic” EpiPen will cost $300. It will be the same as the “branded” version other than having slightly different packaging.

Aside from raising the costs of life-saving medicine, Mylan also makes use of the “inversion” tax technique to dodges taxes. Apple uses the same technique to avoid paying the United States government what they should in taxes.

**Update*

St. Louis-based Meridian Medical Technologies produces the EpiPen for Mylan. It will also produce the generic version.
