Sheriff department’s investigation into Tiger Woods crash scrutinized
In the early stages of their investigation into why Tiger Woods crashed his car on Feb. 23, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department officials made critical decisions that were favorable to Woods and effectively gave him the benefit of the doubt, according to forensic experts.
Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced that day that his deputies “did not see any evidence of impairment” with the golf legend after they found him trapped in his rolled-over SUV.
A day later, Villanueva declared the crash was “purely an accident” and said there had been no need to bring in a drug-recognition expert to evaluate Woods for impairment shortly after the car wreck.
There was no “drug recognition expert needed to respond to do any further assessment of that,” Villanueva said Feb. 24. “This is what it is: an accident.”

In COVID-19-marred conference championship week, nearly half the No. 1 seeds didn’t win
March Madness is already delivering a smorgasbord of upsets, and we haven't even reached Selection Sunday yet.
Conference championship week saw several blue-blood programs – Duke, Virginia and Kansas – call it quits in order to meet COVID-19 protocols. If that didn't make it strange enough, consider the fact that there are 15 of 31 Division I men's college basketball conferences in which the No. 1 seed did not win in the league tournament. And we've still got one day left.
In the power conferences, the reigning national champion Cavaliers notably didn't get a chance to defend their top seed in the ACC Tournament due to a positive COVID-19 test. Baylor, the Big 12's No. 1 seed, bowed out of its league tournament with an upset loss to Oklahoma State in the semifinals Friday.

How wind power is leading America's energy transition
Wind is now America's top renewable source of electricity generation. 2020 in particular was a banner year for wind power in the U.S., with more capacity installed in the final quarter of 2020 alone than in all of 2019. Now, the total capacity exceeds 120,000 MW, enough to power about 38 million homes.
Essentially all of that growth was in the onshore wind sector. Developers are planning more offshore projects for the coming years, too. And they're pioneering advances in the field along the way, like the development of increasingly huge turbines, with individual blades larger than football fields.
But for all the promise of wind power, there are some concerns that have persisted over the years, impeding the expansion of both onshore and offshore turbines. Regulatory and permitting hurdles, concerns over turbine-caused bird deaths and other environmental impacts, and of course the intermittent nature of renewables all pose a challenge.
In the end, wind energy is poised to expand no matter what. The question is how fast.
