Chaleo Yoovidhya, the self-made Thai billionaire who introduced the world to "energy drinks" and cofounded the globally popular Red Bull brand, died Saturday in Bangkok. Forbes magazine ranked Mr. Chaleo, who was in his 80s, the 205th-richest man in the world this year with a net worth of $5 billion.

MONTREAL - Championship points leader Sebastian Vettel won another pole position on Saturday, outracing a pair of Ferraris and a looming rainstorm to record the top qualifying lap at the Canadian Grand Prix. The Red Bull driver, who won five of the first six Formula One races this season, posted a fastest lap of 1 minute, 13.014 seconds after crashing in the first practice session. He was followed by Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. "I just hope it doesn't become a habit to crash the car on Friday and win the pole on Saturday," Vettel said.

It's a white powder, it'll keep you wired all night, and it's called Blow. "Our product is not designed to be an illicit-drug alternative," says Logan Gola, the brains behind Blow. Still, it arrived at The Inquirer in a faux dusty box. Inside were vials of Blow, a toy credit card, and a mirror. (But no dollar bill.) The new mix is being peddled to a market that is hooked: Energy-drink sales increased by 50 percent between 2005 and 2006, according to the Beverage Marketing Corp.

While his classmates were easing back into the college lifestyle after the holiday break, Jason Dolla spent Wednesday night leading the construction of the city's only ski resort. "This took quite a bit of planning," said Dolla, who hopes his hard work will help propel him into the job market this spring. "Talking to people in the [winter sports] industry has really helped me get my name out there. " Dolla, the president of the Temple University Snowboarding Club, organized the annual Bell Tower Rail Jam, held Thursday underneath the chimes it was named for. The competition drew 25 skiers and snowboarders to Temple's campus, some making the trek down from the Pocono Mountains.

Through three games, Lou Williams' numbers are as impressive as his vertical leap. The 76ers' high-flying point guard is averaging 20.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.7 steals a game. He's shooting 63.6 percent from the field, 50 percent from the three-point line, and 84.2 percent from the free-throw line. But here are his most impressive numbers: In his first three games as a starting point guard in the NBA, Williams has 15 assists and only two turnovers. Tonight, the 2-1 Sixers play the 4-0 Boston Celtics at the Wachovia Center.

WARSAW, Poland - A Jewish history museum in Warsaw has unveiled a reconstructed synagogue roof with an elaborately painted ceiling modeled on a 17th-century structure, presenting the first object that will go on permanent display in the highly awaited museum. The wooden roof and ceiling will be a key attraction in the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, which is due to open next year in the heart of the city's former Jewish quarter. Reporters in Warsaw were invited to view it Tuesday.

Upstart neutered punks Story of the Year are basically the same old Vans Warped Tour success story, just clad in different ironic T-shirts and sporting higher voltage finger-in-socket coifs. The St. Louis-bred quintet headlined a four-band bill at the Theatre of Living Arts on Tuesday and entertained the sold-out crowd of barely legal types with a boilerplate hybrid of spazzed-out hardcore and melodic modern rock that should guarantee a season's worth of radio and MTV success. Yet that grim but undeniable truth raises the question: Are they handing out record deals with specially marked cans of Red Bull?

WHEN I INTERVIEWED Brian Vickers recently at Pocono Raceway, I expected to write about his comeback from treatments for blood clots that sidelined him much of last season. I never thought I'd be including news of the withdrawal of his race team's sponsor. Earlier this week, the Associated Press reported that Red Bull will depart NASCAR at the end of this racing season. The energy-drink company sponsors Vickers' No. 83 team and Kasey Kahne's No. 4 team. Since entering NASCAR in 2007, Red Bull teams have not experienced much success.

Seize the drink The folks behind Red Bull have a handle on trendy beverages: This time it's Carpe Diem Kombucha, a "wellness" drink. Brewed in the Himalayas since 220 B.C., kombucha teas are fermented with active enzymes and probiotics, making them effervescent and rather pungent. Carpe Diem blends kombucha with herbal teas (plus a bit of fructose). Thus, the Chinese elixir of life and metabolic harmony is still active but better tuned to Western tastes.

Somewhere around the turn of the millennium, the vodka tonic died. As did the gin-and-tonic. And the modest wine spritzer. People could cry into their tumblers of scotch-and-water, but no one's ordering them. At least not in bars serving libations with double-digit price tags to patrons barely double-decade in age, the kind of swank pods that sprout overnight like some alcohol-infused version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Drinks got silly and fruity and pink. Like many changes in the culture, the cosmopolitan can be blamed on Sex and the City, but not entirely.

Tranquillo Barnetta didn't have a memorable debut for the Union, and his team continued a pattern of creating chances and failing to finish. It added up to the Union's 3-1 loss to the New York Red Bulls in a Major League Soccer match Saturday before 18,883 at PPL Park. The Union are 6-13-4 with only 11 games left and are facing an uphill battle to earn one of six Eastern Conference playoff spots. New York improved to 9-6-5. Barnetta's first minute as a Union player won't be fondly remembered by the Swiss international midfielder.

The Union are shorthanded and having to juggle international spots. They are playing on the road at an unusual time and in likely stifling conditions. That said, the team is eagerly anticipating its U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal against the host New York Red Bulls on Tuesday at 4 p.m. "It will be a unique game, 90 degrees in that stadium [Red Bull Arena] where there is no air and it will probably be 100 on the field," Union coach Jim Curtin said Monday before practice. "It won't be the fastest-paced game but one where two good teams go at it with the chance to get to the final four of a major competition.

The Union will play the New York Red Bulls in a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal July 21 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. Game time is 4 p.m. because Red Bull Arena is hosting the International Champions Cup on July 21-22, the two dates that the U.S. Open Cup set aside for this quarterfinal game. The Red Bulls are playing Chelsea on July 22, which means they will compete on consecutive days. Major League Soccer's collective bargaining agreement does not allow players to play on consecutive days, so the Red Bulls will need two different lineups.

HARRISON, N.J. - It's too small of a sample size to say whether the Union have turned their fortunes around, but for the first time this year they have earned consecutive victories. After they were dominated in a scoreless first half, the Union strung together second-half goals by Vincent Nogueira and C.J. Sapong in a stunning 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls Sunday at Red Bull Arena. Although that improves the Union to only 3-7-3, the two wins have come against two of the Eastern Conference's top teams.

Despite Sunday's upset victory against a streaking D.C. United squad, Union coach Jim Curtin understands that his team has miles to go but also hopes it brings some confidence for the journey. "We know we've dug a deep hole, and we have to fight our way out of it," Curtin said in his weekly news conference. "But I do think there is a little bit of life in the group. After you win there's always more confidence, and confidence is the key right now. " Zach Pfeffer's game-winner in stoppage time last week gave the Union a 1-0 win and snapped United's eight-game winning streak.

Union rookie Pedro Ribeiro rewarded his team's confidence with a difference-making effort. Appearing in only his third Major League Soccer game, Ribeiro scored his first goal and set up the second score during Saturday's 2-2 tie with the New York Red Bulls at PPL Park. "We didn't play great soccer, but the fight was there," Ribeiro said. With the Union trailing, 2-1, in second-half stoppage time, Ribeiro was tripped inside the box by Ibrahim Sekagya, earning a penalty kick.

With his shaved head, lumbering gait, and 190 pounds packed on a 6-foot-1 frame, Conor Casey could easily be dismissed as a bull in a china shop. But his atypical soccer physique has always belied a deceptively deft touch. Casey's crafty footwork led to the first two Union goals Wednesday in a 3-1 victory over the New York Red Bulls at PPL Park. Midway through his second season with the Union, the veteran forward has rediscovered the form that once made him one of the premier scoring threats in MLS. Casey, who had 10 goals with the Union last year, has six in his last six games after not scoring in the first 14. "He just needed a run of games.

THE NEW YORK Red Bulls' position in the standings doesn't necessarily jump off the page, but a simple glance at the MLS statistical leaderboard serves as a reminder of the club's firepower. Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry will arrive at PPL Park tonight as the league's leaders in goals and assists, respectively. Thwarting their efforts will be crucial for the Union (4-8-7) in what interim manager Jim Curtin yesterday deemed "a real swing game" regarding the direction of his team's season.

HARRISON, N.J. - Before last night's match against New York, Union manager John Hackworth was asked whether he believed Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry had anything left in the tank. The 36-year-old Henry answered that question himself in New York's 2-1 victory. It was Henry who was waited in front of Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath in the 57th minute and notched his second goal of the season, assisted by Eric Alexander and Roy Miller. The Red Bulls added another goal in the 67th minute, earning their first win of the season, while handing the Union its second loss.

LOOKING TO GET back in the win column, the Union will visit Red Bull Arena for an Eastern Conference battle against the winless New York Red Bulls at 7 o'clock tonight. More than a month ago, the Union earned its only victory of the season, a 1-0 win over visiting New England. Since then, the Union is 0-1-3, with three draws in its last three games. Like the Union, the Red Bulls have come close to winning multiple times, with four straight draws sandwiched by an opening 4-1 loss to Vancouver and a 1-0 loss to D.C. United.
