Threats of more terror are nothing new -- but the ones the government is hearing these days have prompted a higher-than-ever terror alert.

Doctor Joseph Downing says non specific leg pain and swelling are the most common warning signs of a blood clot --but up to 40 percent of patients don't have any symptoms. And that's why he says it's important to know you're risk for developing a blood clot.
Some of the risk factors include frequent prolonged travel, obesity, a genetic predisposition, even some forms estrogen replacement therapy can cause blood clots, and surgery.

Tom Brady passed for 294 yards and three touchdowns to lead New England to a 30-to-14 win. The Patriots opened the N-F-L season with a win against the team they upset on the road in the A-F-C title game last season. Brady simply picked apart the vaunted Steelers defensive secondary and receivers ran brilliantly after making the catch. The Pittsburgh offense made five turn overs. Jerome Bettis, who rarely turns the ball over, would spoil a Steelers drive with a fumble. It was the first fumble by Bettis in 760 carries.

Reeve was paralyzed from the neck down seven years ago in a horse-riding accident near Charlottesville.
According to an article in the September 23rd issue of People, the 50 year old``Superman'' star can also now breathe without a respirator for 90 minutes at a time.
The article says Reeve has been treated for the past three years with therapy created by his doctor that consists of electrical muscle stimulation combined with repetitive motion exercises.
Reeve can reportedly move the fingers on his left hand and the toes on both feet. He can feel a pin prick on most parts of his body and can tell the difference between hot and cold, and sharp and dull.
