Couples can now apply for Clark County marriage licenses online

first_imgCouples who want to marry in Clark County now can apply for a license online.The Clark County Auditor’s Office launched the online application in July to improve its services to the public, said Auditor Greg Kimsey.“Some of the questions on the applications sometimes people need to do research on, such as, ‘Where was your mother born?’” Kimsey said. “We are finding people find it very convenient to be able to do the application from the comfort of their own home or in their car on their mobile device.”Applicants still have to go to the Clark County Recording and Marriage License Department at 1300 Franklin St. to pay the $64 marriage license fee, in cash, and provide a signature certified by the auditor’s staff. No appointment is necessary.There are no efforts under way to allow applicants to pay their fee online with a credit or debit card, Kimsey said. Using an electronic signature also isn’t in the foreseeable future.“We don’t envision a time when people would be signing it outside of our office,” Kimsey said.So far, the online tool has not been well-publicized. Only about 10 percent of applicants use it, said Paul Harris, recording manager at the Clark County Auditor’s Office.Clark County receives about 2,500 marriage license applications each year, Harris said.To access the online application, visit Achen: 360-735-4551;;; read more

Telangana Medical Contract employees intensified their protest

The employees criticised the contractors for not paying the salaries of contract, sanitation, patient care and security workers since two months and alleged that contractors are playing with their lives by saying that they will pay the salaries after bills are cleared from the government. The employees warned the contractors to pat the salaries in two days, failing which they go into indefinite strike in 24 hospitals.last_img read more

Harris County Very Skeptical About States Potential NonCitizen Voter List

first_imgAlvaro ‘Al’ Ortiz/Houston Public MediaElection signs at an early voting location at Spring First Church, in Spring, TX on October 28, 2018.Civil rights groups are urging Texas counties not to take action on a state-circulated list of potential non-citizen voters. In Harris County, the state’s most populated county, officials say they’ll further investigate the list before sending out citizenship checks.The state wants local election officials to check the citizenship of about 95,000 registered voters who were not citizens when they obtained their driver’s license or state ID.Douglas Ray, with the Harris County Attorney’s Office, said he’s “very skeptical” about the validity of the list.“We think that there’s probably a lot of people, a lot of people, who got their driver’s license when they weren’t citizens, but who subsequently became citizens and registered to vote,” he said.Ray also pointed to a situation years ago where the state believed tens of thousands of registered voters were dead. Many turned out to be very much alive. He said the county is also worried about citizens not responding in time to the citizenship checks requests — they have 30 days, by law — and then losing their right to vote.“We don’t want to take the risk, especially under these circumstances, that large numbers of people who are citizens, have the right to vote, have registered to vote, are disenfranchised just because they didn’t get their mail,” Ray said. “That’s one of the risks that we’re not willing to take at this point.”Officials in neighboring Galveston County have started mailing out the requests. Cheryl Johnson, the county’s top voter registration official, said the county has a “duty” to reach out to registered voters whenever it receives information that a registration might be invalid.“When the Secretary of State puts work on the dashboard, we work that work,” she said. “I have a responsibility to ensure the integrity of my voter roll.”Johnson said she believes the state did “due diligence” in coming up with the list of possible non-citizen voters, but said the county will notify the state if it finds any problems with the data. Johnson said Tuesday afternoon the secretary of state’s office had informed her that some individuals should not have been placed on the state’s initial list of potential non-citizens, though she couldn’t say how many. (The initial list included fewer than 900 people in Galveston County.) There were reports of similar errors in other Texas counties.Johnson said her office is going back through a first batch of notices asking for proof of citizenship sent out Monday to see if any of those letters went to the wrong people.“We’re going to send a letter out to those folks, letting them know there’s no need for them to take any further action,” she said.Johnson said as the process plays out, any citizens mistakenly removed from the voter rolls would be notified, and would be able to re-register.This story has been updated.

Fbd killings Cops nab 3 more as many absconding

first_imgThree more persons have been arrested for their alleged role in setting house of a Dalit family ablaze in Sunped village, taking the total number of arrests in the case to seven while four accused were still at large.Commissioner of Police, Subhash Yadav said: “Seven persons out of total eleven accused named by the family have been arrested so far. We are hopeful to nab other culprits soon.” The three accused were held last night. He said the situation in the village was peaceful now. “Further investigations are underway,” he added. Earlier in the day, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar visited the family of the two Dalit kids, who were charred to death on the night of October 19/20.Khattar said the incident should not be given a “political or casteist colour”.Haryana’s Director General of Police Y P Singal has said that as per investigations so far, an old enmity appeared to be the trigger behind the gruesome incident. The Haryana government had on Wednesday recommended a CBI probe into the case, meeting the demand raised by the victim family.While the children perished in the blaze allegedly set off by some upper caste men who had a running feud with the Dalit family, their mother Rekha, 28, suffered serious burn injuries and was admitted to a Delhi hospital.Their father Jitender (31), was also injured while trying to save them. The family had named 11 people as accused.Eight police officials including Inspector Anil Kumar, Officer-In-charge of Sadar Ballagbarh police station have been suspended.Meanwhile, a team of forensic experts visited the house of the victims. They conducted a thorough search of the room and collected crucial evidence. The room was locked by the police since the incident and Jitender, the father of the slain kids, was shifted to verandah where he takes rest on a makeshift bed. Police teams also questioned Jitender’s neighbour on Thursday.“Since the accused had allegedly scaled walls and set the house afire by pouring petrol over window, we found it very essential to question neigbours in this case. Some of them may turn out to be eye witnesses,” said an official, who did not disclose further details.last_img read more

A lung cancer screening program in the 1950s through the 1970s was one of them. Chest X-rays and sputum cytology were used in the mistaken belief that they could spot lung cancer at a curable stage. Now American medicine appears once again ready to screen for lung cancer, this time using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT). Like the venture before it, this one is noble in nature and possibly just as flawed. But, if American physicians have no alternative, they may feel compelled to go forward. An estimated 160,000 Americans die each year from the disease. Many of them are among the one in three Americans (about 100 million) who are current or reformed smokers. Last December, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended that a subset — adults 55 to 80 who smoke (or until 15 years ago had smoked) a pack of cigarettes or more a day for 30 years — should  be screened with LDCT. Following this recommendation could be remarkably expensive and disappointing. The Affordable Care Act requires Medicare and private insurers to cover medical exams and procedures receiving a grade of “B” or better from the USPSTF. (LDCT lung screening received a “B”.) USPSTF’s recommendation was based on clinical trials published between 2000 and 2013, particularly the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), which showed a 20 percent reduction in lung cancer mortality. Otis Brawley, M.D., chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, notes, however, that the results also mean that 80 percent of lung cancer deaths still occur.The estimated 8,000 to 22,000 lung cancer lives that might be saved will cost upwards of $10 billion just for the initial wave of LDCT screening. Then there is the radiation burden. Even low-dose CT delivers 1.5 mSv, roughly equivalent to 15 chest radiographs. Suspicious findings will trigger follow-up testing (higher dose CT, FDG-PET/CT and biopsy), adding to the radiation and financial burdens for false and true positives alike. Brawley expects that screening will lead to further testing in at least one out of every four. Yet, only four out of every 100 who undergo further tests, he says, will actually have lung cancer.A simple blood test, however, may be available to eliminate or at least reduce the need for much of this testing. A blood-based assay developed by Gensignia, a privately held Italian firm, promises to significantly reduce the high false positive rate associated with LDCT. Test results show that, when paired with LDCT, the microRNA signature classifier (MSC) has negative predictive values of 99 percent and 99.86 percent for detection and death by lung cancer, respectively. This translates into a five-fold reduction in LDCT false positives, according to Ugo Pastorino, M.D., chairman of the Department of Surgery, Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori in Milan, Italy, where the assay was tested.“This is of great clinical relevance in the context of reducing the false positive rate and the potential side effects associated with repeated LDCT scans or other unnecessary invasive diagnostic follow-ups,” Pastorino said.Even a combination of imaging and in vitro testing, however, will not eliminate what may be the most damaging aspect of a lung cancer screening program — that such a program may enable some smokers to continue their risky behavior as they rationalize screening as a way to increase the safety of their habit. How ironic would it be that a program designed to reduce the risk of lung cancer increased it? This raises the question: would the money — conservatively speaking, $10 billion — be better spent on counseling and smoking cessation treatments for at-risk patients? Or, at the very least, should screening of current smokers be tied to their participation in smoking cessation programs?Before embarking on a new initiative to screen for lung cancer, insurers and regulators would be well advised to look at past efforts aimed at this disease and make sure the program they implement this time will substantially reduce lung cancer mortality and have no significant mitigating consequences; whether an in vitro test might reduce the cost and radiation exposure, while increasing the specificity of lung cancer detection; and that the burdens put on the patient and the healthcare system are justified.Greg Freiherr has reported on developments in radiology since 1983.

Georgia names Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Following the departure of Mike Bobo to the Colorado State job, Mark Richt has hired Brian Schottenheimer as his offensive coordinator. He will also coach the Bulldogs’ quarterbacks.The backgrounds of the two men could not be more opposite. Bobo had spent his entire life in the state of Georgia and, save for a single year, his entire adult life wearing Bulldog red, first as a quarterback, then rising the ranks from graduate assistant to quarterbacks coach and then to offensive coordinator. Scottenheimer was born in Denver, followed his father’s career around the country and played college ball at Kansas and Florida. And, like his father, Schottenheimer spent the vast majority of his coaching career in the NFL. Until today.Scottenheimer comes to Georgia from the St. Louis Rams, where he worked as offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams under Jeff Fisher for the past three years. The Rams finished 6-10 this season while ranking 18th in the NFL in yards per play, 28th in total offense and 21st in scoring offense. The son of longtime NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer, Brian has spent the past decade and a half in the NFL, first as the quarterbacks coach for the Washington Redskins (2001) and San Diego Chargers (2002-05), and then spent six years as the offensive coordinator with the New York Jets.Scottenheimer has two years of college experience, one as the wide receivers coach at Syracuse in 1999, and one as the tight ends coach at USC in 2000.Some SEC East context: Schottenheimer backed up Wuerffel on Spurrier’s best Florida teams. And we all know how Spurrier feels about UGA …— Travis Haney (@TravHaneyESPN) January 7, 2015“I’m excited to have Brian join our coaching staff,” Richt said in a statement. “His NFL experience will be a perfect fit for how we like to play offensive football here at Georgia. He’ll be excellent in developing our players in both the running and passing games which will benefit them while they are at Georgia and for their future.”He inherits an offense that returns three offensive lineman and a deep pool of running backs, led by 2014 freshman sensation Nick Chubb. The 10-3 Bulldogs ranked seventh nationally in yards per play, eighth in scoring and 12th in rushing. Schottenheimer will look to replace outgoing starting quarterback Hutson Mason as well as pass catchers Chris Conley and Michael Bennett.Georgia led the SEC in scoring this fall, and ranked among the top four in the conference in five of the past seven seasons. Only Alabama has been equally consistent over that span.“This is a great opportunity to become a Georgia Bulldog for both my career and my family,” said Schottenheimer in a statement. “I’m thrilled to be part of an elite program with such national tradition and a great staff already in place. I look forward to working with young men and being a positive and significant influence on their lives as we develop them athletically, academically, and socially.”As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the lastest.last_img read more

Video and Photos Check out the renovations Penn State is planning

first_imgFrom the looks of it, that’s precisely the message that they’ll be sending.Among one of the more impressive additions is the “Experience Room” where people will be able to step out on a chunk of artificial grass, and look into a semicircle of screens where it will feel like you’re on the field, getting the Penn State experience.
