  • Consumer advocates on health reform: Don't forget about us

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — With Vermont looking toward big changes in the way health care is paid for, consumer advocates are saying they want strong patient protections built into a newly designed system. The House Health Care Committee, meeting Monday, was to hear from a top official with Vermont Health Connect and state Auditor Doug Hoffer about what Hoffer says are continuing problems with the insurance exchange's operations. But first up was an update from Al Gobeille, chairman of the Green Mountain Care Board, about trying to move Vermont from a fee-for-service payment model in health care toward payments for keeping a set population of patients healthy.

  • Despite terrorism fears Paris is still expensive

    Matt Patterson | Updated: 7 hr ago

    Whenever there is a natural disaster or terrorism at an international destination there is often the school of thought that says "Hey, if you've ever really wanted to go to Y, now would be a good time because of X". In reality that's not always the case. The US State Department issued a worldwide travel alert last week citing attacks in Paris, Denmark, Mali and others as the primary reasons for the alerts. That will give many Americans some pause when they're deciding what their travel plans are over the next few months. In some cases after hurricanes deals can be had if you're willing to travel somewhere that might not be operating at 100 percent. But airfare is a remarkably hearty commodity.

  • Thunder's strength of schedule has not been strong

    Updated: 8 hr ago

    The Thunder is 11-6 and has righted the ship from a shaky start. But part of the reason has been a soft schedule. The Thunder is 8-3 at home, which means OKC is 3-3 on the road. Eleven home games, six road games for the Boomers. That will change, of course, starting Monday night in Atlanta. Seven of the Thunder’s next 12 games are on the road, including against quality teams like the Hawks, Heat, Grizzlies, Cavaliers and Clippers. On Christmas Day, the Thunder begins a four-game homestand, and we’ll know a lot more about OKC’s standing in the race to chase Golden State.

  • Norman native Zac Taylor named Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator

    FROM WIRE REPORTS | Published: Mon, Nov 30, 2015

    DAVIE, Fla. — The Miami Dolphins have named Norman native and former Norman High quarterback Zac Taylor as their offensive coordinator. The Dolphins fired offensive coordinator Bill Lazor on Monday. The move by interim coach Dan Campbell came after the Dolphins lost 38-20 to the New York Jets on Sunday. The Dolphins (4-7) were shut out in the first half and have scored less than 21 points in each of their past five games. Lazor was in his second season with the Dolphins. Taylor is in his fourth year in Miami and will remain the quarterbacks coach. Taylor's father-in-law is Mike Sherman, who, coincidentally, was the Dolphins offensive coordinator two years ago. Sherman hired Taylor at A&M and took his son-in-law

  • Cloned Animals Will Soon Be the Source of Much of China's Meat

    Published: Mon, Nov 30, 2015

    How do you feel about eating cloned meat? While the rest of the world sorts out its feelings about the safety and ethics of cloning animals for food production, China is charging ahead and building the world’s largest animal cloning factory, set to begin operations in 2016. The 200 million yuan (over $31 million) commercial animal cloning center will be located in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area, a government-sponsored business area about 100 miles from Beijing. Feelings are decidedly mixed about whether we should be eating cloned meat. On one hand, the European Parliament recently voted by a large margin to outlaw the sale of cloned livestock. On the other hand, the FDA has said that “there are no complications that are unique to cloning” and the meat is safe to eat, despite evidence that cloned animals may not live as long as those birthed in the old-fashioned way. In the US, no special labeling is required for cloned meat, and no one really seems to know how common the practice of cloning meat for food is. Still, some say that most of the cattle cloned in the US are used to breed stock and are not sold for food.
