You're so picky, with the whole wanting clear unambiguous writing thing...
Me, I like a good mystery!
So, if I get this right, those Google cars cause about 0.5 accidents per 1M miles? If so, that equates to about 1.5M traffic accidents per year in the US if you replaced every car with a driverless model (assuming all rates are constant, of course). If that seems like a big number, Americans currently drive about 3 trillion miles per year and get into about 5.5 million traffic accidents. If I did the math right, driverless cars will result in about 2/3 fewer accidents per year than we experience now. Should we all welcome our autonomous vehicle overlords now?
Seriously. Their tagline was literally "Today's gossip is tomorrow's news". Pretty trashy, and borderline journalism at best.
That, and their articles are always full of typos and grammatical errors, never mind the poor conclusions and sloppy research. They're not even good writers!
Specifically, U.S. District Judge Anna Brown said the process doesn’t give Americans on the list an effective way to challenge their inclusion. The Oregonian reports: “In a 65-page opinion issued Tuesday Brown ordered the government to come up with a new way for the 13 plaintiffs to contest their inclusion on the list that prohibits them from flying in or through U.S. airspace. The government must provide notice to the plaintiffs that they are on the roster and give the reasons for their inclusion, Brown wrote. She also ordered that the government allow the plaintiffs to submit evidence to refute the government’s suspicions.
“The decision marks a big win for the plaintiffs, all U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and the American Civil Liberties Union, which argued the case on their behalf. The plaintiffs have all been denied boarding due to their placement on the list, they argue, despite never having been charged with a terrorism-related offense.”
I completely agree with you, but this case isn't like a Da Vinci surgery robot crashing (or going haywire!) in the middle of the surgery. It's more like the camera/imaging equipment crash. Yeah, the cardiologist was probably pissed/confused and the OR techs and nurses were freaking out a bit, but I doubt the patient was in any actual direct danger from the crash. Any danger would indirect, such as prolonging the procedure and exposing the patient to more anesthetic, or rendering the procedure futile and they'd have to try it all over again the next day.
Disclaimer: It's been more than a few years since I've seen a cardiac cath.
From the article:
"The ReAnima Project has just received approach from an Institutional Review Board at the National Institutes of Health in the US and in India, and the team plans to start recruiting patients immediately."
I'm not British, so maybe it's isn't a mistake but I think the word "approach" should have been "approval".
Basically, they got IRB approval for the study. They mention NIH, because the NIH's Office of Science Policy has rules and criteria for the formation of hospital's or university's IRB. I don't know the details of the study, but my guess is that local hospital where the trial is to take place gave approval. They mention NIH because it gives it an air legitimacy. I'm not saying this isn't a legit study, but I think all the NIH did was to approve the formation and composition of the IRB, not the actual study.
NIH Office of Science Policy:
I always had to find a resident or nurse to get simple stuff like bandages from those stupid things.
In other news, these were in the OR's with the good stuff like propofol. Whoops.
"You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."
Just didn't want anyone to think I was some government counteragent!
