People walk past the entrance to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, CaliforniaBy Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A large Los Angeles teaching hospital has told scores of patients they were possibly exposed to a drug-resistant bacterial "superbug" during endoscopy procedures that infected seven patients and may have contributed to two deaths. The 179 patients who may have been infected by the carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, are being offered home testing kits that would be analyzed by the University of California, Los Angeles, hospital system, UCLA officials said. The possible exposures occurred at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center between October and January during procedures in which a specialized endoscope is inserted down the throat to diagnose and treat pancreatic and bile duct diseases. The UCLA hospital system said it had been sterilizing the scopes according to the manufacturer's standards, but was now using a more rigorous process.

Accused aide to Osama bin Laden opposed calls for violence, jury told

Courtroom sketch shows Khalid al-Fawwaz, a 52-year-old Saudi national, during closing arguments of his trial in the New York Federal CourtBy Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - A lawyer for a Saudi man accused by U.S. prosecutors of acting as Osama bin Laden’s lieutenant argued at the close of his trial on Thursday that he was a peaceful dissident who found the al Qaeda leader's violent ideology abhorrent. Khalid al-Fawwaz is charged with participating in several al Qaeda conspiracies, including one that resulted in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people, but he is not accused of planning the attacks. Instead, the government has said he provided crucial groundwork that facilitated the plot, such as sending equipment to al Qaeda members and functioning as bin Laden's "man in London." Defense lawyer Bobbi Sternheim told jurors in federal court in Manhattan that the government was trying to make al-Fawwaz guilty by association. “This case seemed like it was the United States against Osama bin Laden,” she said in closing arguments at the month-long trial.

Gas vapor eyed as factor in West Virginia oil train fireball

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 05:51

A CSX Corp train burns after derailment in Mount Carbon West VirginiaBy Patrick Rucker WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal investigators will examine whether pressurized gas played a role in the massive blast that followed the derailment of a train carrying crude oil through West Virginia this week, the U.S. Transportation Department said on Thursday. Questioning the possible role of gas vapors in the West Virginia fire broadens the debate over how to ensure public safety at a time when drastically larger volumes of crude oil are being shipped by rail and roll through cities and towns. At least two dozen oil tankers jumped a CSX Corp track about 30 miles south of the state capital, Charleston, on Monday, touching off a fireball that sent flames hundreds of feet into the sky. The U.S. Transportation Department said it has an investigator at the site to take samples of crude once the wreckage stops burning.
