Lumea is a game changer for digital pathology. Lumea On Monday, the 37thAnnual JP Morgan Healthcare Investment Conference kicks off in San Francisco—a week-long orgy of PowerPoint decks, spreadsheets and geeked-out cocktail parties that draws tens of thousands of digital health entrepreneurs, execs from health care, biotech and Big Pharma, as well as investors from across the globe. But don’t let all of their wonky banter about the ACA and the FDA fool you into thinking this is just an opportunity for scientists, doctors and health policy experts to nerd out; health care venture capital firms raised a record $9.1 billion in 2017, and according to a study commissioned by Forbes, health care startups are on pace to raise more this past year than in 2012 and 2013 combined. Health tech is big business, and there is no place where more health business is conducted than at the J.P. Morgan conference and the dozen or so off-shoots that have sprung up alongside the main event over … [Read more...] about ‘Flyover Tech’ Is All the Rage at the 2019 J.P.

Aamer Madhani USA TODAY Published 12:26 PM EDT Oct 31, 2018 MOBERLY, Missouri – Sen. Claire McCaskill, the veteran Democrat fighting for her political life in next week's midterm election in this reddish state, is taking some unconventional steps to tout her moderate credentials. In a radio ad in her race against Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, she insists she’s “not one of those crazy Democrats.” On the stump, the two-term incumbent boasts that she’s sponsored 30 pieces of legislation, including bipartisan bills to regulate the pharmaceutical industry, that President Trump has signed into law. She points out that's she voted with Trump on about 48 percent of legislation on which the president has expressed an opinion. A member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, she has even gushed about the president’s defense secretary, Jim Mattis, to voters in this state that Trump won … [Read more...] about Midterms: Republican Josh Hawley challenging Democrat Claire McCaskill in Missouri
As he approached the end of a prolific high school career at St. Louis University High, Dustan Davidson attracted a lot of attention from colleges all over the country. Naturally, he wanted to go where the best runners were. For him, that was Oklahoma State. The Cowboys, fresh off a Big 12 indoor track conference title, were excited to have Davidson on board. But when he arrived, it became apparent that Stillwater, Oklahoma wasn’t the best fit for him. “As soon as I got there, there was a lot of turnover on the roster,” said Davidson, now a redshirt sophomore at Missouri. The old in-state program was undergoing a transformation of its own around the time Davidson was considering transferring. One athlete in particular was putting Mizzou cross-country on the map and making the program appear more appealing – not just to current high schoolers, but to former Missouri recruits who had initially ventured elsewhere. In the true spirit of cross-country, … [Read more...] about The ManeaterFormer in-state recruits come running home as transfers, thanks to Schweizer
Grant Suneson 24/7 Wall Street Published 11:09 AM EDT Oct 8, 2018 From 2016 to 2017, the U.S. economy improved in several key metrics. The median household income increased by more than $1,500, unemployment dropped from 4.9 percent to 4.4 percent, and the poverty rate fell from 14.0 percent to 13.4 percent. While this is good news, the effects weren’t felt equally across all 50 states, and much of the gains in median household income went to households that were already wealthy. Income inequality in the U.S. remains high and incomes vary dramatically at the state level as well. The typical household in the wealthiest state earns over $37,000 more each year than the typical household in the poorest state. The South holds a higher-than-average concentration of the poorest states in the country. Many of the wealthiest are coastal states in the West, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast regions. Both states outside of the lower 48 — Alaska and Hawaii — are among the 10 … [Read more...] about Wealth in America: Median household income in richest, poorest states
