False positive pregnancy test rate
Russ Mitchell and Alexa Diaz Los Angeles Times Published 12:02 AM EDT Mar 11, 2019 Elon Musk’s contempt toward the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission – as expressed in numerous tweets and in a national TV appearance – is beyond question. Whether the Tesla CEO violated contempt-of-court charges filed against him by the SEC is for a judge to decide. On Monday, Musk must file a brief in his defense under orders from Judge Alison Nathan, 46, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Nathan, who has yet to schedule a hearing, will decide whether Musk defied a previous fraud settlement with the SEC when he tweeted out what seemed to be a huge increase in Tesla’s forecast for electric-car production for 2019. And, if so, what she’s going to do about it. Pundits are predicting everything from a slap on the wrist to removing Musk from his CEO position. If the Obama-appointed judge issues an order and Musk later violates that, it … [Read more...] about Elon Musk circus enters a new arena: federal court
Kristin Lam USA TODAY Published 10:52 PM EST Dec 4, 2018 Australian scientists have developed a simple blood test that they claim can diagnose cancer in mere minutes by identifying a unique DNA signature present in all types of the disease. A genetic pattern in all cancers, researchers said Tuesday, could help make diagnosing cancer more accessible and affordable. The blood test detected cancer with 90 percent accuracy in the University of Queensland’s tests of different human cancers and healthy cells and can be done in only 10 minutes. Nanoparticles of gold change colors if the cancer DNA is present, using the same technology as pregnancy tests with strip indicators, according to researchers. “This happens in one drop of fluid,” said Professor Matt Trau, one of the study's researchers, adding that researchers are still unsure if the test will emerge as the "holy grail" for cancer diagnostics. “You can detect it by … [Read more...] about Cancer researchers in Australia develop universal blood test
Marlene Cimons, The Washington Post Published 10:51 am CDT, Monday, September 24, 2018 Everyone is born with a hole in the heart. During pregnancy, this hole allows blood to bypass the fetal lungs - which aren't yet working - and deliver oxygen to the unborn baby's heart and brain. The small opening, located between the left and right chambers, usually closes on its own within a few months after birth. But in about 1 in 4 babies, it never does. Most of those babies will be fine, and will live their lives not even knowing it. But for some, the defect can prove dangerous. Dina McPherson, a film and television screenwriter and producer in Melbourne, Australia, was one of them. For as long as she can remember, she had suffered migraines - not typical headaches, but auras: flashing lights, blurry vision, tingling and numbness in her hands, feet and face. One scary episode left her with permanently impaired vision, another with a numb and clumsy arm that lasted for weeks. … [Read more...] about Many people live unaware of a hole in the heart that does not close

Kavanaugh positioned himself as an ally of social change for women in America. Standing beside President Trump at the White House, Judge Kavanaugh spoke of being a father of daughters and a coach to a girls’ basketball team. He hailed his mother’s legal career. He boasted that most of his clerks had been women. Coming in the era of #MeToo and the Women’s March, of greater attention to wage inequality for women and campus sexual assaults, Judge Kavanaugh was trying to reassure the many women around the country who may have been assessing him, and the president beside him, warily. He was, after all, a 53-year-old jurist and ambitious veteran of Republican … [Read more...] about Trump Galvanized a Movement of Women. Kavanaugh Is Testing It.
