Israeli scientists manage to print artificial heart with patient's cells for the first time ever

The process of creating the heart started with a biopsy of fatty tissue taken from patients. The cellular material from the tissues was used as the "ink" for the print job. That allowed researchers to create complex tissue models including cardiac patches and eventually an entire heart. It should be noted that the heart isn't very big -- it's only about the size of a rabbit's heart. But the technology that made it possible could eventually lead to the production of a human-sized organ. Currently, the hearts can only contract but researchers plan on culturing the 3D printed hearts and teaching them how to operate like the real deal. Once that process is complete, they will attempt to transplant them into animal models.

On Bernie Sanders' (I - Vt) town hall appearance on Fox News

(I preferred the Vox article over the Fox News article because the Fox one wrote that Bernie didn't apologise for being a millionaire thanks to his book royalties. It hit the stance of saying that Democrats spat upon millionaires for being millionaires, which is wrong. It regards those millionaires a failure which lead companies but don't pay their employees fair salaries and evade taxes. I don't agree with AOC's employee who claims every billionaire a failure generally, I only call those a failure who happen to dump their employees and avoid to pay their fair share to our society. There's a difference, please mind that)
When speaking directly to audience members or to the TV audience watching at home, Sanders was sincere and open. When asked about President Donald Drumpf, he spoke with emotion about how he hoped everyone could agree a “pathological liar” should not be president; in his closing statement, he practically begged for more comity in the country, without backing off his

DOJ to overturn work requirement for Medicaid in KY and AR

At issue are rules the Drumpf administration approved in the states obligating some people to work, volunteer, or take classes for 80 hours a month to be allowed to remain on Medicaid.

The rules don't apply to caregivers, parents, and people undergoing treatment for serious illness, but plaintiffs say they are illegal and do not serve the purpose of Medicaid, which is jointly funded by states and the federal government.

The Drumpf administration's argument is that Medicaid could go beyond providing healthcare coverage and instead, through work requirements, help beneficiaries improve their lives by earning more money and securing private health insurance coverage. It notes that people who work are healthier and improving health is another goal of Medicaid.

California flushes Big Gulp Ban

Asm. David Chiu plans to re-activate the bill next year. It’s goal is to make it illegal for retailers from selling or giving away cups with removable lids that can hold more than 16 fluid ounces. Many times these cups are used for fountain soda or frozen sugary drinks.
For my metric fellowship: 16 fluid ounces approximately equal 473. millilitres, 0.83 British pints (yes, I will add it hereby, for the English amongst you), or two cups of coffee. I hope this helped you out and realise how much this is when you drink it in shape of a sugary drink like Coca Cola, or Fanta. Brace for diabetics when you drink from such cups.
The average American drinks nearly 50 gallons of sugar-sweetened beverages a year. Those drinks, including soda, energy drinks, sweet teas, and sports drinks have been linked with diabetes, obesity, dental disease, and heart disease. A 2013–2014 California Health Interview Survey shows that 41% of children ages 2 to 11, and 62% of teens ages 12-17, drink a soda every d

Ohio's heartbeat bill gains national momentum

The so-called "heartbeat bill," which prohibits abortions as early as six weeks into a woman's pregnancy, has been endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence and is seen as a credible threat to the landmark case Roe v. Wade.

Porter, a former legislative director with Ohio Right to Life and current leader of Faith2Action, was frustrated with the slow, incremental approach that other conservatives were taking toward banning abortion. She clashed with her former organization, dividing Republicans into conservatives and arch-conservatives.

The legislation has not taken effect anywhere yet, blocked by court decisions or pending legal actions. The Eighth District Court of Appeals has struck down two state's laws as unconstitutional, and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to weigh in so far.

Measles cases surge amid rise of the anti-vaccination movement

The surge has been fueled in part by the anti-vaccination movement – most people who contract measles have not been vaccinated, the CDC said. If one person has the disease, up to 90% of the people close to that person will become infected if they are not immune, the CDC warned.

"The numbers serve as a kick in the butt that says, hey, we probably should start paying attention to vaccination again," he told USA TODAY. "One of the most challenging aspects of public health is balancing between individual liberty, for people who don't want the vaccine for whatever reason, and what is best for everyone."

"The religious communities that I've spoken to in no way prevent people from getting vaccinated," New York state Sen. David Carlucci said. "This (bill) would take any of that misconception out of the puzzle."

WWN exculsively interviewed anti-vaxxer parents

Questions as to the benefits of not getting the HPV vaccine were stubbornly ignored, while follow up queries about why guarding their children against meningitis, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and polio among other diseases was just ‘brainwashing propaganda’ went unanswered.

According to the etching on their tombstones John and Catherine are both 35 and while WWN is not being critical of them but if they were deaf or simply had a cough and lost their voices if would have been a nice courtesy to inform us in advance so we could hire an ASL interpreter or postpone the interview for another time.

Presidential candidate Bennet (D - CO) reveals he has prostate cancer

His PSA was high. The biopsy showed malignancy. The doctors recommended that, at his age, surgery was the best course of action. His family agreed. The risk, he was told, was low. John Kerry had survived, cancer free, the same surgery in 2003 and two weeks later was back on the campaign trail, on his way to winning the Democratic nomination. And so …
When I asked Bennet how he was taking all this — the cancer, not the presidential bid — he said he was OK. “I’m too busy to really sit back and think about it,” he said, “and that’s probably the best thing.”

“I don’t want to be hysterical, but if it was left in me undetected, it could kill me. It won’t because I have insurance and decent medical care. The idea that the richest county in the world hasn’t figured out how to have universal health care is beyond embarrassing. It’s devastating.”

Sen. Rick Scott (R - FL) claims that ACA would ruin US healthcare system

The question that has to be asked previous to actually reading the article is: Does this mean that ACA would improve the US healthcare system? I mean, the status quo ante ACA was miserable, it left many people bankrupt once they had to undergo a lifesaving operation, because they couldn't afford it. After ACA turned into effect, many people were finally able to respire, but now, Trump is going to head forward to repeal and replace it by something of his, which, according to Mitch McConnell, will hurt the Republicans in the polls and the election next year.
The Florida Republican, a freshman senator who once led one of the largest for-profit private health care companies in the U.S., said the cost of health care and prescription drugs is too high. His comments echoed remarks made by his Senate colleague and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, earlier on "Face the Nation."

Senate Majority Speaker Mitch McConnell seemingly doesn't support Trump#s ACA repeal plans

“It doesn’t help with the messaging because we’ve spent the last 20 years trying to figure out how not to get labeled with the blame for a shutdown,” a Republican senator told The Hill at the time. That he would derail Republicans’ attempts to keep the focus on Medicare for All, as espoused by several Democratic presidential hopefuls, is par for the course.

On Trump's bittern fight against the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare

The White House has no easy answers. When the GOP tried several times to repeal Obamacare in 2017, voters overwhelmingly disapproved of the plans. Americans grew to like the existing law more when they saw projections that the Republicans’ alternatives would leaves tens of millions more people uninsured or increase costs.
“The one lasting effect of the repeal and replace debate is that the ACA is actually more popular than ever. That will make it harder to talk about repealing and replacing it,” said Larry Levitt, senior vice president for health reform at the Kaiser Family Foundation. “The repeal and replace debate in 2017 did the one thing that seemed impossible: which was to make the ACA popular.”
In the end, Trump would repeal Obamacare, despite any public outrage. He doesn't care for anyone who disagrees with him, and will hail those who agree. He lives in his tunnel vision world, his alter... show more


HIV and AIDS sufferers sue quack doctor Yahya Jammeh

Jammeh had used herbal concoctions and banana to administer his treatment to the patient using an outhouse at State House in Banjul for his operations.

The trio is seeking an undisclosed amount as compensation from Mr Jammeh who lives in exile in Equatorial Guinea following his electoral defeat by current president Adama Barrow almost two years ago.

Jammeh’s AIDS cure had caused a dent in the number of sufferers who had initially been put under ARV drugs, but were instructed to cease taking them in favour of his concoctions.

Senate majority leader McConnell (R - KY) keeps on playing his partisan game

“I look forward to seeing what the president is proposing and what he can work out with the speaker,” McConnell said in a brief interview Thursday, adding, “I am focusing on stopping the ‘Democrats’ Medicare for none’ scheme.”

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he’s eager to move forward on a new health care debate, but he’s not detecting the same enthusiasm in the leadership suites: “I’m not sensing a whole lot.”

“The leader is sort of anxious to see what the president and his team put forward in terms of a proposal,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), McConnell’s top deputy. “The good news for us is the Democrat alternative, the so-called Medicare for All plan, the government-run program, is very, very unpopular.”

GOP uncertain on how to react to Trump's ACA plans

They know the more they talk about repealing Obamacare, the more likely it is that the battle over the health law and the popular protections for people with pre-existing conditions drags into the 2020 elections, damaging vulnerable Republicans.
Which are quite a lot Republicans, as it has already been with Section 8 housing.
His counterpart on the Health, Education, Labor and Education Committee, Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) was singing a similar tune on Wednesday, telling reporters: “We’re working in a bipartisan way.” Alexander has recently turned his focus to health care costs, rather than repeal.
There are more rational Republicans left than one might expect. They are just slightly depressed by the man who occupies the White House.
“The president makes very clear that he understands the importance of health care and that he wants the Republican Party to be the party of health care,” said Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)

Trump contiously arranges to dissolve the Affordable Care Act

Trump has groused about those high-profile defeats, most notably in his bizarre, ongoing attacks against late senator John McCain, who shot down the G.O.P.’s half-baked “skinny repeal” with a dramatic, last-minute thumbs-down. Trump has also continued to target the A.C.A., proposing in his most recent budget that Obamacare be repealed and replaced with his preferred block-grant system—a position that will likely figure heavily into the 2020 campaign, but that would almost certainly be a nonstarter in the Democratically controlled House.

The administration’s support for the sweeping ruling is a more aggressive position than its previous stance, which held that only some parts of the law, like protections for people with pre-existing conditions, should be eliminated.

This even more extreme position, under William Barr’s D.O.J., not only threatens to leave millions of Americans without health care, but, as Politico noted, would upend s

NJ Democrats won't cease to promote marijuana legalisation

“We’re going to sit down and get to work on figuring out the next steps,” Coughlin (D-Middlesex) said during the press conference in the governor’s office. “We didn’t get a touchdown, but we moved the ball to the one yard line.”

“We might have lost the fight, but we’re absolutely going to win the war at the end of the day,” Sweeney said at the press conference, adding that the Senate has typically moved slower than the Assembly on socially progressive issues like the aid-in-dying bill, which passed the Senate for the first time on Monday, and marriage equality.

“When you talk about relieving 200,000 people, it’s not easy. It’s not an easy lift,” Assemblyman Jamel Holley (D-Union), who championed the expungement provisions with fellow Union County Democrat Annette Quijano, said at a separate press conference on Monday. “While we missed the mark today, I’m proud of the momentum we have ... show more


Alabama ranked fifth in environmental protection

(The article also includes a map in which you can check how many toxic wastes your state omits in favour of your decreasing wealth. Just in case you're curious to see.)
Alabama had the fifth highest volume of toxic releases into waterways in 2017 with 11.2 million pounds, and the fifth most toxic substances released into the air with 27.1 million pounds.

Just in case you thought that this high ranking was good. It isn't.

The analysis was published this month in the EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory, a massive collection of legal pollution reports filed with the agency from more than 21,000 industrial facilities across the country. The reports lay out how much of certain chemicals are emitted to the air, land and water from manufacturing operations, electric utilities, as well as facilities like hazardous materials landfills that accept certain toxic substances.

However, take away land releases, which include the heavy mining waste, and Alabama and other southeastern states be... show more
