Former New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas was taken to White Plains Hospital Center today after overdosing on sleeping pills, WABC-TV reported, citing police and unidentified people.
Police were called to Thomas’s house in Harrison, New York, just after midnight for a report of a possible overdose of a 46- year-old male, WABC-TV reported, citing police sources. The former NBA basketball player and coach is 47, the network said. The incident is being treated as an overdose and not a suicide attempt, WABC-TV said, citing police. Officials with the Knicks would tell the network only that Thomas is fine.

Students on campuses across the country have created unprecendented excitement and enegy in this year’s presidential election. While a record number of students are expected to vote November 4, confusion about residency and absentee voting requirements may discourage or deter many from actually voting.

In most states, students who leave home to attend college have a choice as to where they will vote. However, the laws governing voting eligibility can be tricky, confusing, or, in some cases, restrictive. Additionally, students may be unfairly targeted by election officials or partisan challengers at the polls.

The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law recently released a student voting guide to address students’ concerns. The guide explains the basic residency, registration, identification, and absentee voting requirements for student voters in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The guide also addresses the most frequently asked questions by student voters regarding financial aid, car insurance, driver’s licenses, car registration, tuition, dependent status, taxes, and health insurance.

Prince recently sat down with The Associated Press to discuss his new coffee-table book “21 Nights,” as well as the Internet’s influence on pirated music and turning the big 5-0 in June of this year. “How old are we really?” the music superstar asked. “It’s about ascension. It’s not the other way. There’s nothing down about it. Everything is better.” As an example, he brings up his groundbreaking 21-night stand at London’s O2 Arena last year. “I couldn’t have sold out 21 nights in London in the peak of my career; it would have been an impossibility,” he says. “I look forward to these years where everything is just open sky. I wish this for every artist: freedom.” The 21 London concerts inspired his new coffee table book “21 Nights,” from publisher Simon & Schuster. The glossy not only steals glimpses of his onstage performances, but also behind-the-scenes moments of the star and his band during the unprecedented concert stint. “No one had ever sold out 21 nights in a row,” said photographer Randee St. Nicholas. “So I thought, ‘We should do a book surrounding this point in his life, because this is a great point in his life.'” “This was a landmark event,” adds Prince. “No one believed that it would do what it did. … Everyone tried to talk me out of it.” There’s a reason why the CD that comes with the book contains only Prince’s classic hits and songs from one of his signature jam sessions – and not any new material.
