How hospitals can improve outcomes of weekend surgeries - EurekaAlert 6 hours ago
A large-scale, multicenter study has shown that emergency body cooling does not improve survival rates or reduce brain injury in infants and children with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest more than normal temperature control. Until now, this treatment has not been studied in infants or children admitted to hospitals with cardiac arrest.
Studies have shown that patients who undergo surgeries on weekends tend to experience longer hospital stays and higher mortality rates and readmissions. For the first time, a new study has identified five resources that can help hospitals overcome this 'weekend effect': increased nurse-to-bed ratio; full adoption of electronic medical records; inpatient physical rehabilitation; a home-health program; and a pain management program.

If you were looking to buy a Nexus 7, youâ€™re out of luck as Googleâ€™s 7-inch tablet is no longer available for purchase from Googleâ€™s online store.If you visit the Nexus 7 page on the Google Store, youâ€™ll be presented with a message stating that â€śthe Nexus 7 is no longer available for purchase.â€ťÂ Itâ€™s unclear as of this writing whether Google has discontinued the Nexus 7 outright, or whether itâ€™s merely out of stock or is planning to release a refreshed version.At the time of its release in 2013, we praised the current Nexus 7 as â€śthe best 7-inch tablet that money can buy,â€ť and especially liked its sharp, vibrant 1280 by 1920-resolution screen. The Nexus 7 hasnâ€™t received an update since then, however, so given the tabletâ€™s age, it wouldnâ€™t come as a shock if Google stopped production.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Debian 8.0 'Jessie' is out and even Microsoft is celebrating - PC World 12 hours ago
Ever since Amazon announced the release of an SDK (software development kit) for its Echo interactive speaker early last month, weâ€™ve been salivating at the prospect of using Alexa (Echoâ€™s built-in virtual assistant) as a smart-home factotum. It appears some of the developers with access to the SDK are thinking along the same lines.One such developer is Holland, Massachusetts-based web engineer Jeffrey Bachand, who has come forward with a video of him using Echo to control his Nest Learning Thermostat and Wink smart-home hub. In the 71-second YouTube video, first reported on by Engadget, Bachand can be heard bombarding Alexa with a barrage of commands: â€śopen Winkâ€ť, â€śturn the living room [lights] offâ€ť, â€śopen Nestâ€ť, â€śturn it [the temperature] downâ€ť, and so on. On each occasion, Alexa does exactly as told.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

FBI investigating possible Islamic State terrorism plot in U.S.: CNN - Yahoo 1 hour ago
Russian hackers who penetrated sensitive parts of the White House computer system last year read President Barack Obama's unclassified emails, the New York Times reported on Saturday, quoting U.S. officials. "There is no evidence that the president's email account itself was hacked, White House officials said. Still, the fact that some of Mr. Obama's communications were among those retrieved by hackers has been one of the most closely held findings of the inquiry," the paper said. The White House confirmed the breach earlier this month, saying it took place last year and that it did not affect classified information.

Thousands march in Baltimore to protest black man's death - Yahoo 1 hour ago
By Lacey Johnson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - At least 2,000 people protesting the unexplained death of a black man while in police custody marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday, pausing at one point to confront officers in front of Camden Yards, home of the Orioles baseball team. In the biggest protest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died on Sunday, two clusters of marchers chanting "shut it down" started out at different times before merging during the afternoon into a single wave headed toward City Hall. Last year, there were weeks of protests across the country following the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of Eric Garner, in New York City who was placed in a chokehold during an attempted arrest. Saturday's protests came a day after Baltimore's police commissioner conceded that police had failed to provide Gray with timely medical attention for a spinal injury he had suffered sometime after he was apprehended and put inside a transport van.
