Report: Secret Service stretched ‘beyond its limits’

The Secret Service is stretched “beyond its limits” and needs more training, more staff and a director from outside its ranks — and the White House needs a better fence — an independent review has found.

An eight-page executive summary of the report, produced by a panel of four outside experts appointed by the Department of Homeland Security, was released Thursday.

The report said the congressional budget process has left Secret Service directors guessing how much more they might be …

Obama acts boldly on Cuba, with eye on legacy

Obama acts boldly on Cuba, with eye on legacy

While campaigning in 2008, Barack Obama said it was time to come up with a new US policy towards Cuba. Now, with two years left in his second term in the White House, he has finally acted.

The president has broken with a half century of seeking to isolate Cuba by announcing plans to restore diplomatic relations with the communist-run island after a year-and-a-half of secret negotiations.

In effect, it is a political bombshell.

As he did recently on global warming …

Black Captain America leads comic book diversity

Black Captain America leads comic book diversity

For decades, comic books have been in color, but now they are more and more reflecting the true hues of American society.

The new Captain America is black. A Superman who is suspiciously similar to President Barack Obama recently headlined a comic book. Thor is a woman, Spider-Man is part-Puerto Rican and Ms. Marvel is Muslim.

Mainstream comic book superheroes — America’s modern mythology and the wellspring behind several recent Hollywood blockbusters — have been redrawn from the stereotypical brown-haired, …

Bill Cosby resigns from Temple University board

Bill Cosby resigns from Temple University board

Bill Cosby’s long relationship with his beloved Temple University has come to an end, another effect of the scandal engulfing the once adored television star and comedian.

Cosby’s Monday resignation from Temple’s board of trustees, a position he held for 32 years, was first reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Cosby also attended Temple.

At least 17 women have spoken publicly accusing the comedian of sexual misconduct, and many of the women say he drugged them before he raped them. Some …

Ebola fears speed changes in U.S. hospital record systems

Ebola fears speed changes in U.S. hospital record systems

The worst Ebola outbreak on record, and its spread beyond West Africa, has accelerated changes in how U.S. hospitals address the threat of infectious diseases, say health IT companies and industry experts.

After more than five years and a $25 billion investment of federal money to move U.S. medical records out of paper files and into computers, doctors say the systems lack analytical functions, don’t allow them to share information with colleagues in other practices and require too much …

Health law impacts primary care doc shortage

Health law impacts primary care doc shortage

When Olivia Papa signed up for a new health plan last year, her insurance company assigned her to a primary care doctor. The relatively healthy 61-year-old didn’t try to see the doctor until last month, when she and her husband both needed authorization to see separate specialists.

She called the doctor’s office several times without luck.

“They told me that they were not on the plan, they were never on the plan and they’d been trying to get their name …

Kobe talks about the fire needed to catch Jordan

Kobe talks about the fire needed to catch Jordan

All these years, Kobe Bryant has been chasing Michael Jordan.

The bar doesn’t get any higher than that. And after Bryant passed Jordan for third on the NBA’s career scoring list in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 100-94 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night, he offered a glimpse into the relentless mentality it takes to run down a legend.

“I think the competitive nature is something that frightens a lot of people when you peel back truly what’s inside …

Bryant has 3 TD catches, Cowboys beat Eagles 38-27

Dez Bryant backed up his bravado in a big way.
Bryant had a career-best three touchdown receptions, and the Dallas Cowboys rallied to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-27 after wasting a 21-0 lead.

DeMarco Murray had a pair of TD runs to help the Cowboys (10-4) move ahead of the Eagles (9-5) into first place in the NFC East. The Eagles dominated the Cowboys in a 33-10 road win on Thanksgiving, but Dallas seized control of the division with two …
