Republicans Eye Last-Ditch Attempt to Repeal Obamacare, Again
Just two weeks ago, the forecast for Republicans was bleak: the GOP had dramatically failed to repeal Obamacare earlier in the summer, and reports of tension on Capitol Hill made it seem unlikely they would pull it together. But in a startling reversal of fortune over the last week, Republicans lawmakers have resuscitated a new effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. The bill in question, Graham-Cassidy, named for its co-sponsors Sen. Lindsey Graham and Rep. Bill Cassidy, has earned the White House’s backing, and received tacit support on Tuesday from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “It is better than the status quo by far. That’s an argument we’re comfortable making,” McConnell said at a press conference outside the Senate chamber after the weekly party caucus luncheons. “If we’re going to go forward, we’ll have to act before Sept. 30. We’re in the process of discussing this.” Graham-Cassidy would be a massive restructuring of the current U.S. healthcare system. Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government foots the bill for an ongoing expansion of Medicaid and subsidies that ease healthcare costs for less fortunate Americans — an annual tab of about $110 billion — and Graham-Cassidy would do away with both. Instead, it would introduce a decade-long “block grant” system that would give each state an annual lump sum with which they can devise their own healthcare systems...

M1 here at a P/F school. What's the marginal benefit of spending 4-5 hrs peer week for leadership position of a student-run clinic vs. spending that time studying? I've noticed that successful applicants for basically all residencies have had x number of leadership experiences. I'll become a leader to check that CV box if necessary, otherwise I want to spend most of time studying to crush boards/get good grades. Spending too much time on leadership activities/EC's is my biggest regret of... Leadership for residency?
If you have a 3.5-3.6 at a prestigious college (Little Ivy or regular Ivy) compared to someone who has a 4.0 at a mediocre school, does the former outweigh the latter?
This study investigated the acute glucose response to low‐intensity, moderate‐intensity, and high‐intensity interval exercise compared to no‐exercise in healthy insufficiently active males using a four‐arm, randomised, crossover design. Ten males (age: 37.3±7.3 years, BMI: 29.3±6.5 kg·m−2) completed four 30 minute interventions at weekly intervals comprising low‐intensity exercise (LIE) at ~35% VO2R, moderate‐intensity exercise (MIE) at ~50% VO2R, high‐intensity interval exercise (HIIE) at ~80% VO2R, and a no‐exercise control. Participants performed cycle ergometer exercise 30 m...

People who undergo root canals may soon have a tiny but powerful ally that could prevent infection after treatment.Researchers at theUCLA School of Dentistry and theUCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science found in a clinical trial that nanodiamonds protected disinfected root canals after the nerve and pulp were removed, thereby improving the likelihood of a full recovery. The findings are a milestone for the use of nanodiamonds in humans.Nanodiamonds are tiny particles made of carbon and are so small that millions of them could fit on the head of a pin. They resemble soccer balls but have facets like a...
Hey! I was recently invited to an early interview with FIU and was wondering if the decision is binding if I were to accept an offer? If anyone has already attended an early interview (NOT early decision) and can give me an answer I would greatly appreciate it! ALSO: Was there any specific questions you can remember? How are the students/faculty? How many people were at your interview? How long did it take for them to contact you? How was the structure of the day? and was the...
