Racial injustice still rife in health care

Stethoscope on a printed sheet of paper

Racism mars the history of health care in America. For years, black patients were relegated to separate — and appallingly unequal — hospitals and wards. Many were simply denied medical attention, either “dumped” into the care of other facilities or turned away at the hospital door.

Fifty years ago this week, that started to change as Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law two programs — Medicaid and …

Bill Cosby: New York Mag cover features 35 of comedian’s accusers

New York Magazine has published an explosive cover story chronicling the stories of nearly three dozen women accusing Bill Cosby of rape or sexual assault.

The cover itself features 35 of the 46 women who have come forward publicly. The magazine said it spent six months interviewing each of Cosby’s accusers separately, “and yet their stories have remarkable similarities, in everything from their descriptions of the incidents to the way they felt in the aftermath.”

Cuba: Mariel port, economic zone attract 1st foreign firms

At Cuba’s new mega-port project west of Havana, shipping containers are stacked five-deep the length of its 2,300-foot (700-meter) dock alongside four massive, Chinese-built offloading cranes.

Neon-vested workers are busy laying roads and building a convention center, and trucks filled with dirt rumble over rutted roads and coat the vegetation with dust.

Not far from the Mariel container terminal, workers have finished grading a flat area the size of a football field for the first private companies to establish operations …

Already some ERs are taking steps to find out why and try to prevent unnecessary returns. A Philadelphia hospital, for example, is beginning to test video calls and other steps to link discharged patients to primary care.

Chris Haynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, citing league sources, reported Friday, “James will take a wait-and-see approach while the Cavaliers tend to their housekeeping matters.”

Dez Bryant Contract: Rumors, speculation surrounding Cowboys WR

Wide receiver Dez Bryant was unable to reach a long-term deal with the Dallas Cowboys before free agency began, so the team slapped the franchise tag on him. Now, the 26-year-old is preparing to force the team’s hand in securing a contract by holding out.

Mike Fisher of Fox Sports reported Bryant was at AT&T Stadium on Thursday, but that the wide receiver was not there to participate in the team’s minicamp. Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram …
