University of Tulsa cleaning up small radiation spill at research campus
1 Sep 2015 at 9:17am
By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - The University of Tulsa is working to clean up what it is calling a minor spill of a radioactive chemical on its research campus and is having 21 people who may have been exposed to the cesium-137 undergo medical evaluations, school officials said on Tuesday. The spill by Tracerco, a subsidiary of British chemical company Johnson Matthey that was contracted by the university, is believed to have occurred last fall but Tracerco did not notify the school about it until Aug. 25, the university said. Tracerco spilled a small quantity of cesium-137, a radioactive isotope often used in research, in a restricted building on a campus that houses research equipment, according to Steadman Upham, the university's president.

Activity trackers vary in accuracy
1 Sep 2015 at 9:02am
By Madeline Kennedy (Reuters Health) - Wrist-worn activity trackers, increasingly popular among consumers and in healthcare research, can vary considerably in their accuracy, a study from Iowa State University suggests. Researchers pitted consumer devices against a gold-standard metabolic monitor and found the wristbands are more accurate for calories burned while resting or jogging, but have higher error rates for activities like weight lifting and crunches. ?We have continued to study these new consumer monitors since the companies provide NO data to support the accuracy of the estimates,? said study author Gregory Welk, an associate professor of kinesiology at Iowa State in Ames, by email.

FDA issues warning letters to five caffeine distributors
1 Sep 2015 at 8:57am
(Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday issued warning letters to five distributors of pure powdered caffeine, as the federal agency stepped up efforts to curtail ingestion of the stimulant in its pure form. The drug regulator had in 2014 issued a consumer advisory warning of the risk to taking pure powdered form of caffeine after two men died from overdose. Earlier in 2012, the FDA issued a warning letter to Breathable Foods Inc, a company that marketed an inhalable caffeine product as 'breathable energy'.

Pope to allow all priests to forgive abortion during Holy Year
1 Sep 2015 at 8:55am

By Isla Binnie VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis will give all priests discretion during the Roman Catholic Church's upcoming Holy Year to formally forgive women who have had abortions, in the Argentine pontiff's latest move towards a more open and inclusive church. In Church teaching, abortion is such a grave sin that those who procure or perform it incur an automatic excommunication, which can only be lifted by designated church officials. Francis described the "existential and moral ordeal" faced by women who have terminated pregnancies and said he had "met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision".

Liberian Ebola survivor battles prejudice in UN virtual reality film
1 Sep 2015 at 8:00am

By Kieran Guilbert LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A virtual reality film aims to draw attention to prejudice towards Ebola survivors by guiding viewers through the life of a woman in Liberia who uses her immunity to help others affected by the disease, the creators said on Tuesday. The eight-minute film "Waves of Grace" is part of a series of virtual reality (VR) films commissioned by the United Nations to fight donor fatigue on humanitarian issues including the plight of Syrian refugees in the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan. It transports the viewer to West Point, the most populous slum in Monrovia, and follows Ebola survivor Decontee Davis, offering a 360-degree view of her surroundings as she looks after orphaned children and cares for others with the disease.

Republicans lack votes to defund Planned Parenthood: McConnell
1 Sep 2015 at 7:49am

By Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell undercut threats by fellow Republicans to hold the budget process hostage in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, saying conservatives do not have enough support in Congress to cut off the group now under fire from abortion opponents. Instead, the Senate's top Republican said he is focused on funding the federal government when U.S. lawmakers return next week and will work with President Barack Obama to avert a shutdown, which last paralyzed the government in 2013. On the possibility of tying measures that kill funding of the women's health group to federal spending bills, McConnell told Kentucky station WYMT: "We just don?t have the votes to get the outcome that we'd like." "The president has made it very clear he's not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood, so that?s another issue that awaits a new president hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood." Some Republicans have threatened to push for cutting off the group's federal support, perhaps tying that demand to several must-pass tax-and-spending measures set to come before Congress after its long August vacation. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
