The FMCSA has posted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Qualifications of Drivers; Diabetes Standard, proposing to do away with the Diabetes Exemption Program. Although there are many drivers who feel this is a long overdue rule, others are concerned that the rule (the way it is written) would compromise the safety of the driver and the highways.
Dr Randolph Rosarion, certified medical examiner in the US DOT FMCSA National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) and Elaine Papp, board certified occupational health nurse and founder of Health and Safety Works, LLC, will be our special guests as they discuss the complex and unseen details of insulin dependent Diabetes mellitus and how it relates to the NPR and the professional driver.
Qualifications of Drivers; Diabetes Standard Summary -
FMCSA proposes to permit drivers with stable, well-controlled insulin-treated diabetes mellitus (ITDM) to be qualified to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce. Currently, drivers with ITDM are prohibited from driving CMVs in interstate commerce unless they obtain an exemption from FMCSA.

Proposed Cuts to the VA 2015
Restrict VA's Individual Unemployability Benefits to Disabled Veterans Who Are Younger Than the Full Retirement Age for Social Security
More than 3.4 million veterans with medical conditions or injuries that were incurred or worsened during active-duty service are receiving disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Narrow Eligibility for Veterans' Disability Compensation by Excluding Certain Disabilities Unrelated to Military Duties
Veterans may receive disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for medical conditions or injuries that occurred or worsened during active-duty military service (excluding those resulting from willful misconduct). Disabilities that are deemed to be connected to military service in that sense range widely in severity and type, from the loss of limbs to migraines and treatable hypertension.
The ability for families to get services for children with developmental disabilities may increase if a new rule proposed under the Affordable Care Act becomes final.
In this "Kids News Extra" segment Dr. T reviews the article, "Proposed Rule Mandates Coverage of Habilitation" from the ASHA Leader about proposed mandate to cover habilitative services.
"Habilitation" is intervention to help a child build skills in which they are delayed or disordered. It's similar to the more familiar term of "rehabilitation" whereby an individual receives intervention to regain skills that are lost second to an accident, a disease, or the like.
The ASHA Leader is a publication of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association which provides information for the public and governs the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology.
This proposed rule goes beyond speech-language and hearing services and regards global developmental issues. We hope it's helpful.

Until now science has claimed that the brain is the only major organ that lacks a direct connection to the lymphathic system. Several authorities have recently come forward to show that the elusive lymphatic vessel s do indeed have major infiltration in the brain.
Our guest Karl West, CL, President of the International Academy of Lymphology, has been stating that it has been the case all along that the lymphatic system includes the brain but it was only recently that researchers accidentally stumbled on this discovery using mouse brains.
Join us to learn about the latest lymph discoveries that are absolutely essential for the prevention, reversal, & elimination of every degenerative disease on earth!

Join Sherri Jefferson. She will discuss Congressowman Bass' meeting to eridicate the sexual abuse to prison pipeline. Is Congress doing enough? Can they amend the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and the Justice for Trafficking Victims Act to address mandatory decriminalization and preventing victims from being detained? Can they enact a Fair Criminal Records Reporting Act to delete the records of victims? Join me as we disuss some of the outcomes of from her hearing held in D.C. and the proposed recommendations of the African American Juvenile Justice Project that was submiited by Sherri Jefferson.
Between October 30 and November 2,2015, the United States will release 6,000 federal prisoners in accordance to new guidelines that went into effect November 2014 when an independent federal commission proposed shorter sentences for drug offenders. The result of the commission's decision that -just because someone was sentenced to a long prison term during the peak of the tough-on-crime era, he shouldn't automatically have to serve more time than he'd get if he were sentenced today. Of the 6000 to be released, only 4,000 are US citizens; about 2,000 of the prisoners scheduled for release are unauthorized immigrants, who will be detained and deported immediately after they're released from federal prison and legal immigrants
In January 2014, the Commission indicated it would reduce the drug sentencing guidelines and in March 2014, the Attorney General supported new guidelines being applied to on-going drug cases. As many as 46,000 prisoners are eligible to apply for shorter sentences under the change.
In 2011, Congress reduced the sentencing disparity between "crack" and powder cocaine and the Sentencing Commission decided to allow current prisoners sentenced for crack cocaine to apply for shorter sentences. The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. Ten thousand people are released from prison every week, most of them from state prisoners. Typically, the federal government releases 55,000 prisoners a year. It will be interesting to see how the federal criminal justice system will help ex-inmates reenter society.

Is Khan Academy The Remedy for Public Education Failure Factories?
This weekend hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, will converge on Washington DC to demand "Justice or Else!" At the last Million Man March 20 years ago, many leaders criticized the lack of an agenda for new legislation and said that we should never again have a mass gathering at the nations Capitol without a specific demand for our elected officials in the form of a proposed law to address the problem. What law can we pass that would stop the out of control problem of urban gun violence, both self inflicted and police inflicted, that is resulting in the massive loss of innocent lives?
Arizona is among the 23 states where CO-OP health plans were established under the ACA
Ten of the 13 carriers in Arizona’s exchange have proposed rate increases of less than ten percent for 2016.
Buying health coverage through MNsure will get a lot more expensive for many people next year.
Average rate increases for individual and family coverage will range from 14 percent to 49 percent compared to 2015, the agency said Thursday. The highest average rate increase — 49 percent — will come from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, the state's largest insurer.
Analyst Cynthia Cox with the Kaiser Family Foundation, said even after prices rise, rates in Minnesota are still below the national average."And that's because these premiums started out very very low. I know Minnesotans may not believe it after having two years in a row of double digit increases in their exchange premiums but Minnesotans still pay less than many other people in the country do," Cox said.
The chart and tables below present an updated analysis of changes in premiums for the lowest- and second-lowest cost silver marketplace plans in major cities in 13 states and the District of Columbia, where we were able to find complete data on rates for all insurers. This page will be updated as complete rate information becomes available for more states.http://kff.org/health-reform/fact-sheet/analysis-of-2016-premium-changes-in-the-affordable-care-acts-health-insurance-marketplaces/
