Enlarge Getty Images | KrulUA reader comments 11 Share this story The US Senate yesterday voted to eliminate privacy rules that would have forced ISPs to get your consent before selling Web browsing history and app usage history to advertisers. Within a week, the House of Representatives could follow suit, and the rules approved by the Federal Communications Commission last year would be eliminated by Congress. So what has changed for Internet users? In one sense, nothing changed this week, because the requirement to obtain customer consent before sharing or selling data is not scheduled to take effect until at least December 4, 2017. ISPs didn’t have to follow the rules yesterday or the day before, and they won’t ever have to follow them if …

Insurance Companies Could Profit From Fewer Customers Under GOP Plan

Enlarge this image The health insurance company Anthem has said the GOP bill would benefit both insurers and individuals. Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images hide caption toggle caption Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images The House Republicans’ embattled health care bill has plenty of detractors: Democrats, hospitals, the American Medical Association and the House Freedom Caucus all oppose it. But the insurance industry is not on that list, even though it stands to lose millions of customers. One reason is that insurers’ profits are expected to fatten under the bill. The GOP’s replacement plan would likely attract more consumers who are younger and healthier to the individual market than the Affordable Care Act did, according to the corporate credit rating firm Standard & …

How Can You Measure How Much Pain a Baby Feels?

In Education, Events, Government, Healthcare by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords:

When a baby is born early, their first months of life can be hectic and painful. Doctors can implant breathing tubes, and perform multiple surgeries as the baby’s young organs continue developing. Up until the ’80s though, one major element of that hospital experience was missing: pain medication and anesthesia. Preemies undergoing open heart surgery might receive a paralytic, but no more, because doctors believed that newborns either couldn’t feel pain or didn’t remember it. Clinicians’ practice flipped in the late ’80s after a key review paper compiled the overwhelming evidence of physiological traces of pain, and today preemies get anesthesia and opioids just like any other patient. But that practice just got more complicated. In December, the FDA mandated …

He saw what happened to older guys—he meant men in their late thirties—when the pain became unbearable. They either became supervisors or they had to quit. At the time, my relative was about to turn thirty himself, and I remember him saying, “My back is killing me.” I’ve been thinking about that conversation this week, as President Trump has cajoled and …

Research Suggests a Possible Role for a Storm of “Jumping Genes” in ALS

Research Suggests a Possible Role for a Storm of “Jumping Genes” in ALS Dr. Josh Dubnau aside a large image of brain cells of the fruit fly displaying transposon activation. Stony Brook, NY – March 24, 2017 – By inserting an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)-linked human gene called TDP-43 into fruit flies, researchers at Stony Brook University and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory discovered a potential role for ‘transposons’ in the disease.  Transposons, which are also called ‘jumping genes’ because they jump from place to place within DNA, are virus-like entities that fill most of the spaces between genes in an organism. The new research demonstrates that these transposons are no longer effectively inhibited, resulting in a storm of jumping genes, …

Schumer: Judge Gorsuch Will Need 60 Senate Votes to Reach the Supreme Court

In Business, Education, Government, Healthcare, Legal, Security by Long Island PressLeave a Comment

While President Trump has his hands full lining up support from House Republicans for his overthrow of Obamacare, Senate Democrats have taken a clear stand against his nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, raising the stakes for his confirmation. On Thursday, after three days of listening to his “lack of candor” at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said his party plans to filibuster Gorsuch, which means that the conservative Colorado jurist will likely have to hurdle the 60-vote threshold to take his seat on the High Court. Right now Democrats are in the minority with only 48 Senators, leaving the Republicans with 52. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot …
