New home test shakes up colon cancer screenings E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
Starting Monday, millions of people who have avoided colon cancer screening can get a new home test that’s noninvasive and doesn’t require the icky preparation most other methods do. The test is the first to look for cancer-related DNA in stool. But deciding whether to get it is a more complex choice than ads for “the breakthrough test ... that’s as easy as going to the bathroom” make it seem. On one hand, the test could greatly boost screening for a deadly disease that too few people get checked for now. read more

13 Europe banks flunk test, must find 10B euros E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
FRANKFURT, Germany — The European Central Bank says 13 of Europe’s 130 biggest banks have flunked an in-depth review of their finances and need an extra 10 billion euros ($12.5 billion) to cushion themselves against any future crises. Although the landmark review identified only a handful of weak banks, ECB officials said Sunday that it was tough enough to ensure Europe’s banks will be purged of the bad investments that have made some of them hold back on lending. That means the banks will be ready to lend to businesses when the economy finally picks up, they said. read more

Polls indicate lead for GOP in quest for Senate E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
WASHINGTON — Republicans hold a narrow but steady lead in the contest for control of the Senate, according to polls released Sunday. Enough races remain extremely close that Democrats could still keep control of the chamber, but only if all the breaks go their way. So far, that’s not happening in the campaign’s closing weeks. Democrats appear to have lost ground in extremely close races in Iowa and Colorado, although they have gained in Georgia. read more

He feels that the middle class is standing still. Doesn’t he realize that it’s because of the Obama Policies that we are in the this situation? The stimulus only stimulated Obama’s agenda.

Letter: Pitts' column missed E-mail

Pitts’ column missed Editor: I always read Leonard Pitts. I do not always agree with him, but when he writes on racial prejudice, he is generally spot on. On some other matters, not so much. Wednesdays’ article is a good example. He seems to be under the delusion that those of us that hold tight to solid values are a shrinking lot. Perhaps that is so in Hollywood, academia and the main stream press. read more

The president is upset. Very upset. Frustrated and angry. Seething about the government’s handling of Ebola, said the front-page headline in the New York Times last Saturday. There’s only one problem with this pose, so obligingly transcribed for him by the Times. It’s his government. He’s president. Has been for six years. Yet Barack Obama reflexively insists on playing the shocked outsider when something goes wrong within his own administration. read more

To your good health: Heart disease can have mininmal or no symptoms E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently went to my family doctor, complaining of left-arm pain and heartburn-like pain in my throat area. He said that he could admit me to the hospital for two days of testing or that it could be a pinched nerve in my neck. It was my choice not to go to the hospital, so he recommended meloxicam for a possible pinched nerve. As it turns out, my symptoms later became so uncomfortable that I decided to go to the ER three days after seeing my doctor. It was a serious blockage of a main artery to my heart, and emergency surgery was performed to put a stent in. read more

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am considering minimally invasive spine surgery. Almost 19 years ago, I had a right total-knee replacement, which still functions very well. I believe the replacement parts are made with stainless steel. No physician I have questioned about the danger of having an MRI with metal parts in my body has been willing or able to give me a straight answer about the safety of an MRI with a metal knee. They respond with “It should be OK” or “It might heat up a little,” etc., but no guarantee of safety. read more

Conservatives link Ebola scare to US border security E-mail

AUSTIN, Texas — Conservative Republicans are tying the widening Ebola scare to the nation’s debate over border security, warning that the threat of Ebola and other infectious diseases increases the need for tougher enforcement and health safeguards along the porous southern border.

In this year’s midterm elections, New Hampshire’s Scott Brown is taking on the slickest Democratic politician since John Edwards. Incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen presents herself as a regular mom who “rearranges the dishes in the dishwasher if it is packed by someone else” — as she told The Boston Globe when she ran for governor. But then she backs policies that only Fidel Castro’s mom would like. (And based on her immigration stance, I think we all know it’s her Guatemalan maid who’s packing the dishwasher.) read more
