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. Born in central Thailand's Pichit province to a Chinese father and a Thai mother who reportedly sold fruit and ducks to survive, Mr. Chaleo died the third-richest man in Thailand.

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.

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. Mix, melt, monitor Finding the right temperature to temper chocolate for coatings and candies could easily raise a novice's temper - but not with a Connoisseur Chocolate Spatula Thermometer from Taylor.

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.

Sad day for Joba One of the more moving stories of last season was Joba Chamberlain's rise with the Yankees - a rise from an average-throwing high school pitcher to a smoke-throwing big-leaguer - and all the sacrifices made for that rise by Chamberlain's father, Harlan, who contracted polio when he was 9 months old. Harlan Chamberlain raised Joba by himself, lately using a motorized scooter. He is deaf in one ear and does not have full use of his left arm. On Sunday night, Chamberlain got a call from his sister informing him that their father had collapsed at his home in Lincoln, Neb., and was in critical condition at a local hospital.

All it took was two consecutive plays Sunday night to erase 66 minutes of futility for the Union. First it was Keegan Rosenberry sending in a cross to Chris Pontius who was taken down in the box and C.J. Sapong scored on the ensuing penalty kick. Then it was Fabian Herbers sending in a similar cross a minute later. Charging toward the back post was Pontius, and this time he wasn't dragged down. He tapped the ball into the goal with no one in front of him. Two goals. Two minutes.

It's the simplest of instructions, and at halftime the Union clearly got the message: Shoot the ball! After being outshot 14-1 and outscored 1-0 in the first half, the Union were an entirely different team in the final 45 minutes Wednesday night. The aggressive approach led to a 2-1 victory over the New York Red Bulls in a round of 16 game in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup at Talen Energy Stadium. The Union, who have lost in the previous two U.S. Open Cup finals, advanced to the July 20 quarterfinals against the host New England Revolution.

When the Union meet the New York Red Bulls in Wednesday's Round of 16 U.S. Open Cup game at Talen Energy Stadium, the teams will have a difficult time topping the drama that occurred in their U.S. Open Cup game last year. The Union won that quarterfinal, 4-3, on penalty kicks after the teams played to a 1-1 draw through 120 minutes in regulation and overtime. It was one of the wildest games, especially since the Union played two-thirds of the contest a man down after Conor Casey earned a red card in the 40th minute.

Major League Soccer teams received a bye until the fourth round, and the Union opened Wednesday with a 3-2 win over the visiting Harrisburg City Islanders.

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 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.
