More robots in Chattanooga operating rooms CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Is there a robot in your surgical future? Area doctors say improvements in cameras, mobility and size are making the high-tech devices much more useful for surgeons in many more specialties than before. Dr. Lee Jackson, who has done more than 1,500 prostate surgery operations at CHI Memorial, recently took robotic gear to a monthly show-and-tell meeting with primary care and family doctors. They needed to see what the gear looked like, Jackson explained, because more and more of their patients will see it if they need surgery. “It’s kind of like the iPhone - when it first came out, it was a novel thing, but people weren’t sure how one would use it,” said Dr. Amar Singh, a urologist who since...

Human Rights Commission rejects David Leyonhjelm 'angry white male' ... Libertarian senator David Leyonhjelm says he will consider appealing a Human Rights Commission decision to reject his racial discrimination claim against a journalist who labelled him an "angry white male". The Liberal Democrat senator from NSW complained about an article by Fairfax Media's Mark Kenny in which he was also described as a "boorish, supercilious know-all with the empathy of a besser block". Senator Leyonhjelm is opposed to section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act, which makes it unlawful to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate on the basis of race, and said the point of the complaint was to demonstrate the absurdity of the law. But that has been turned on its head by the commission's decision to rebuff the claim at the first hurdle, declaring ...

Another person dies at Arizona immigration detention center PHOENIX — Advocates say the weekend death of a 36-year-old woman at a detention facility in Arizona that's had the most in-custody immigrant deaths in the U.S. is another example of inadequate care and poor practices at the privately run site.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced on Monday that Guatemala national Raquel Calderon de Hildago died at a hospital near the Eloy Detention Center after a series of seizures. Hildago died Sunday, becoming the third nationwide in-custody death for the immigration agency since Oct. 1.
