High doses of vitamin E significantly reduce high blood pressure in rats with chronic kidney failure, according to a UCI College of Medicine study. Results of the study, released Feb. 13, show the key role a damaging process called oxidative stress plays in causing high blood pressure. It also shows how vitamin E and other antioxidants could provide new ways to treat high blood pressure, especially in patients with kidney disease. Dr. Nick Vaziri, professor of medicine and chief of nephrology, and his colleagues found that rats with impaired kidneys produced high levels of highly reactive chemicals known to cause damage to cells.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, “There Will Be Blood,” is sure to generate a lot of dialogue — is it brilliant, baffling or somewhere in between? A much-ballyhooed tale of corruption, hypocrisy and broken relationships, this movie is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Mud, blood and oil have never looked so ominous and yet so beautiful. The music (by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood) is unique and lends an even creepier tone to an already bleak story.

Leather jackets, religious faith and the Red Cross. An odd trio at first glance, but it has proved to be a winning combination for the family members and close friends of a Garden Grove man who was critically injured in a traffic collision in Costa Mesa on Sunday. With help from Red Cross workers at Western Medical Center, Wesley Estes' mother, Margaret Van Over, organized a blood drive in his name at the American Red Cross Donor Center in Santa Ana. Van Over, family and friends shared memories of Estes and took photos for a scrapbook as they donated blood Friday.

The Orange County Crime Lab produced inaccurate blood alcohol test results in 2,200 driving-under-the-influence cases filed by prosecutors this year - mistakes that could affect outcomes in dozens of cases. Prosecutors in recent days sent letters to people charged with driving under the influence, including 900 whose cases resulted in convictions. The letters advised them that their cases were among those with miscalculations. Crime lab officials said the "human error" occurred over nearly five months and led to mistakes in the forensic examination of blood alcohol content.

I was recently sitting with four first-grade teachers who were lamenting, in shocked tones, that most of their students were talking about, emulating and, of course, watching the latest "Chuckie" movies. For those as ignorant as I, they are slasher movies. First-graders are 5 and 6 years old. I am amazed that society is so shocked by the recent events of child brutality. One child used a car to kill, one his bare hands and another a gun. We like to think that we are so civilized and beyond the barbarism and blood lust of the past, but we are indeed the same people who sat in the Coliseum of Rome and pointed thumbs down.

This corrections an earlier version. Prosecutors rested their case against Victor Manuel Garcia on Tuesday, a Mexico native accused of killing a teenage Costa Mesa girl in a local park in 2001. Garcia, now 25 but 17 the day of Ceceline Godsoe’s slaying, was the main suspect in her death in the days after her body was found. Witnesses who were with Godsoe and Garcia that night testified she was last seen alive walking away from the group with Garcia while everyone continued to hang out after hours drinking at Costa Mesa’s Fairview Park.

This week I had the opportunity to talk to a person whose family descended from the Mayflower. Named after her father's boat, Gale Nye Pickney has recently taken the helm of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club as its first female commodore. Shortly after she was born in Chicago, her family moved to Newport Beach. She grew up on a Cal 40 that was kept back east and a 45-foot Stephens motor yacht here on the West Coast. The family cruised from Northern California down to Mexico and spent quite of bit of time in Avalon on Catalina Island.

When "Scrubbing In," MTV's new reality series about travel nurses, airs its first episode Thursday night, it will have a formidable act to follow in terms of media outrage and water-cooler gossip. In short, it will have to top its own trailer. All the general public has seen of the 10-episode series, which follows nine nurses from different parts of the country as they immerse themselves in Orange County life, is a short montage and a few clips on MTV.com. But those snippets have already ignited a war of words online, as some are lobbying to have the show taken off the air while others praise it as a noble effort to spotlight a heroic profession.

A regionwide blood drive tapped into more than 50 donors who gave blood in the Newport-Mesa area, but the event missed the main vein and was several pints shy of each city's goals. A Tuesday blood drive at Costa Mesa's Emergency Operations Center collected 19 pints from 19 people who donated as part of the seventh Battle of the Badges event, according to Laura Rudd, a donor recruitment manager with the American Red Cross. The blood collected missed the 33-pint goal, Rudd said.
