Alicia Turner September 3, 2015 6:08 pm THOMASVILLE, Ga. -- It’s a machine so accurate its name includes the word "perfection." Archbold Memorial Hospital will continue using the high tech laser beam, known as the Gamma Knife Perfection in its cancer center. The technology helps doctors treat patients with brain tumors, but the new toy is a little more up to date. Dr. Steve Johnson and the oncology team at Archbold have treated more than 900 tumors since they received the previous version of the technology, known as the C4, in 2003. Thanks to the new upgrade, the Gamma Knife Perfection will now help them fight those battles even more efficiently. Dr. Johnson is the Director of Radiology Oncology. He said the $3 million machine can treat tumors anywhere from the neck up, with a half a millimeter accuracy. "It doesn’t get better when it comes to treatment. This is the ultimate in brain tumor treatment," Johnson said. Doctors at the hospital told Eyewitness News, in such a rural area, a machine like this isn't seen often, but it's very necessary. "If you don’t have one in a rural setting, our folks are not going to travel to Atlanta. Some will, but some will just say no I’m not going and would take an inferior treatment...

China Prods Industry to Make a Great Leap

China’s addiction to coal doesn’t just foul its air. It pollutes the ground, too, because power plants often dump leftover ash in landfills. Yulong Eco-Materials has found a use for that plentiful waste. The company, based in the central Chinese province of Henan, uses the ash to make bricks. “The material is easy to get,” says Sam Wu, chief financial officer of Yulong, which had sales of $44.5 million in the fiscal year ended June 2014.Premier Li Keqiang wants more companies to address China’s environmental problems and bolster the struggling manufacturing sector. In August, a closely watched gauge of factory output fell to its lowest level since 2009. The slump contributed to the collapse in share prices, with the Shanghai index down almost 39 percent from its high in mid-June.In May, the State Council endorsed a 10-year manufacturing plan aimed at fostering innovation, promoting the creation of more local brands, and encouraging greener production. Headlined Made in China 2025, the blueprint identifies 10 strategic industries, including robotics, IT, aerospace, and new-energy vehicles. It also sets ambitious targets: Spending on research and development by Chinese manufacturers is to rise to 1.9 percent of revenue by 2025, up from 0.9 percent in 2013. The carbon dioxide intensity of industrial output must fall by 40 percent over the course of a decade. “Pollution control is now even more importan...

Christie criticizes Booker for 'political decision' on Iran deal

BERLIN, N.H. — Just as soon as U.S. Sen. Cory Booker announced he supported a historic deal with Iran over the country's nuclear program, Gov. Chris Christie said he was disappointed in what he called a "political decision."   The governor, speaking on the presidential campaign trail in New Hampshire, expressed his frustration with Booker, an occasional political ally, for supporting President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.  "He's wrong," Christie said. "History will judge him to be wrong and I'm very disappointed in his decision," he said. "I think it's unfortunate that he's made the decision that's a political decision and not one that's in the best interest of the country." In his announcement Thursday, Booker called the deal "deeply flawed" but said it is better to support it "for the alternative is worse." RELATED: Opposition to Iran deal 'not about politics,' Christie says Christie has routinely assailed the president on the deal, arguing that President Obama "looked the American people in the face and ... lied to them." Last week, the governor offered his most tempered comments on the deal when he joined with Jewish groups at Rutgers University to criticize the proposal and put pressure on Booker to oppose the deal.

Government Proposes Protecting Transgender People in Health Care System

The Obama administration proposed a new rule Thursday that would ban discrimination against transgender people in the health care system, saying stereotypes about sexual identity have no place in provision of health insurance or medical care. "The proposed rule, Nondiscrimination in Health Programs and Activities, will assist some of the populations that have been most vulnerable to discrimination and will help provide those populations equal access to health care and health coverage," the Health and Human Services Department said in a statement. "Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) extended civil rights protections banning sex discrimination to health programs and activities. Previously, civil rights laws enforced by HHS's Office for Civil Rights barred discrimination based only on race, color, national origin, disability, or age." "This proposed rule is an important step to strengthen protections for people who have often been subject to discrimination in our health care system." The issue's at front and center of U.S. society. On the same day, a federal judge ordered Kentucky clerk Kim Davis to jail after she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. And the right to same-sex marriage was only decided by the Supreme Court in June. "This proposed rule is an important step to strengthen protections for people who have often been subject to discrimination in our health care system," HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell said in a statement. The rule prohibits ...  

Oregon Ducks unveil proposed Marcus Mariota Sports Performance center, a new ...

Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Complex.png A rendering by SRG Partnership of one aspect of the proposed Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Complex at Oregon. (SRG Partnership via University of Oregon) EUGENE — When Marcus Mariota left Oregon last January, many voiced their opinion that the Ducks' first Heisman Trophy winner deserved a statue on campus. That still may come. In the interim, part of a building could carry his name. The University of Oregon's Board of Trustees were presented Thursday with a plan for the Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Complex that would expand the first floor of the UO's Casanova Center — which houses most athletic department offices, with the exception of the football offices, on two floors — to house the 29,000-square-foot Mariota complex. The board can approve the proposal next week. It will be paid for as a gift by Nike co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny, UO announced. Oregon's "aggressive" schedule would have drawings completed by Nov. 1, bids opened Dec. 5, construction begun Jan. 10 and the complex opened Sept. 15, 2016. The building would almost assuredly keep the Ducks at the forefront of college athletics' long-discussed "arms race" with an eye toward recruiting, and "to utilize relevant known scientific data in order to maximize well‐being and performance of student‐athletes at the University of Oregon" once athletes are on campus. Under the proposal (read here, page 112) ...  

Harry Kane addresses Manchester United interest

Manchester United’s hopes of signing Harry Kane have been hit after the England striker declared his intention to lead Tottenham into their state of the art new stadium. Kane has addressed Louis van Gaal’s pursuit of him this summer and insists he had no intention of trying to force his way out of White Hart Lane. United’s Dutch manager identified the 22-year-old as a potential partner for Wayne Rooney as he looked to reshape his attack. Kane scored 31 goals for Tottenham last season But Spurs chairman Daniel Levy dismissed any possibility of selling his prize asset in face of interest from Old Trafford. Van Gaal’s only hope would have been if Kane had agitated for a move himself. Something the player says was never going to happen. “I am a Tottenham boy,” said Kane. “I have grown up with the club. “I know the club and I love the club. We have got a great team, a young team that is only going to get better and better. “I am happy. I am happy to be playing.” Kane believes he can achieve his ambitions at Spurs United were ready to splash out on Kane after Van Gaal’s decision to show the door Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez. They could have offered him Champions League football, as well as the chance to play alongside England teammate Rooney. But the boyhood Spurs fan believes the club’s new stadium - due for completion in 2018 - is evidence that he can achieve his ambition...
