Double-Booked: When Surgeons Operate On Two Patients At Once


By KHN, July 12, 2017

The controversial practice has been standard in many teaching hospitals for decades, its safety and ethics largely unquestioned and its existence unknown to those most affected: people undergoing surgery.

But over the past two years, the issue of overlapping surgery — in which a doctor operates on two patients in different rooms during the same time period — has ignited an impassioned debate in the medical community, attracted scrutiny by the powerful Senate Finance Committee that oversees Medicare and Medicaid, and prompted some hospitals, including the University of Virginia’s, to circumscribe the practice.

By CNBC, July 27, 2017

Robert Shiller is well-known for his views on valuation, volatility, dividends and bubbles. But when asked what currently worries him most, the Yale professor of economics turned to another subject entirely.

"A theme that I have been coming back to is that the big worry that's on people's minds — I don't know how active it is in trading — but it's about where the world is going with automation and robotics," Shiller said in a Wednesday interview on CNBC's "Trading Nation."

Sharpton Glosses Over His Use of 'Ethnic Slurs,' Claims He 'Corrected Them'


By News Busters, July 30, 2017

On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, host Al Sharpton slammed President Donald Trump for recently using the term "paddy wagon," calling it an "anti-Irish ethnic slur." He then went on to absolve himself of his own long history of using ethnic slurs by vaguely admitting to doing so in the past, but by lumping himself in with everyone else as "we," as he claimed he already "corrected" his offensive comments. Sharpton: "It's against decency to use ethnic slurs. We've all used them, and we've all corrected them."

Justice Department Argues Congress, Not Courts, Makes Sexual Orientation Laws - Breitbart


By Breitbart, July 29, 2017

South Korea considers a nuclear arsenal to counter the North


By McClatchy DC, July 28, 2017

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA  - No longer sure they can rely on the United States, an increasing number of South Korean lawmakers say their country should develop its own nuclear arsenal to deter an attack by Kim Jong Un, their belligerent neighbor to the north.

North Korea’s rapid missile advances, including successful tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in July and again on Friday, are reviving calls for South Korea to assert its “nuclear sovereignty.” South Koreans are wary of President Donald Trump’s isolationist rhetoric and his calls for Asian allies to shoulder more of the defense burdens borne by the U.S. military.
