A robotic system at Stanford Medical Center was used to perform a laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery successfully with a theoretically similar rate of complications to that seen in standard operations. However, as there were only 10 people in the experimental group (and another 10 in the control group), this is not a statistically significant sample.

If this surgical procedure is as successful in large-scale studies, it may lead the way for the use of robotic surgery in even more delicate procedures, such as heart surgery. Note that this is not a fully automated system, as a human doctor controls the operation via remote control. Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery is a treatment for obesity.

There were concerns that doctors, in the future, might only be trained in the remote control procedure. Ronald G. Latimer, M.D., of Santa Barbara, CA, warned “The fact that surgeons may have to open the patient or might actually need to revert to standard laparoscopic techniques demands that this basic training be a requirement before a robot is purchased. Robots do malfunction, so a backup system is imperative. We should not be seduced to buy this instrument to train surgeons if they are not able to do the primary operations themselves.”

There are precedents for just such a problem occurring. A previous “new technology”, the electrocardiogram (ECG), has lead to a lack of basic education on the older technology, the stethoscope. As a result, many heart conditions now go undiagnosed, especially in children and others who rarely undergo an ECG procedure.

Wikinews visited ‘Doc Wilkes House of Horrors’ located in Longview, Texas recently for a private tour. Co-owner Laura Wilkes led the tour and introduced a select number of actors featured in the haunt.

The attraction offers a broad array of elaborate sets and rooms, professionally designed to scare attendees. A broad host of costumed actors finish out the horror-related theme for customers.

Wilkes said the attraction’s physical design is meant to, “…play on peoples’ natural fears–the dark, narrow passageways, those types of things.”

Attendees are greeted by the presence of an antique hearse near the main entrance and the queue area is designed to present a spooky atmosphere with an array or arcane relics.

The haunt’s namesake and co-owner, Eugene ‘Doc’ Wilkes is heavily involved in the attraction’s operations. Wilkes has a lengthy performing history, having been a magician and western style actor for many years.

The cast of ghouls includes a human doll, several creepy clowns and other scary attractions. Elaborate lighting and sound effects also heighten the sensory experience.

The haunt is open Friday and Saturday evenings through October, with one Thursday special ‘Blackout Night’ planned for October 22. This year marks the attraction’s 13th consecutive year of operation.

If you’ve heard of the ‘The Apprentice’, the NBC show hosted, written, and produced by Donald Trump, involving entrepreneurs competing for a chance to land the ultimate job, you might have also heard of a law suit that was filed against him, by a Richard J. Hewett, a rejected applicant claiming he was turned away because of age discrimination.

Changing your career at any age can be a scary and stressful situation, but making a career change after 50 can leave you dealing with an entirely new set of issues. Not only do you consider age discrimination, but you think about having to learn new job duties, your physical capabilities, keeping up with the younger employees, and whether this job change is in your best interests at this time of your life.

If you’re thinking about making a career change after 50, here are some things you must know.

Assessment- Make an assessment of your life and the things that truly make you happy.

Do not Rush- You’ve made it this far so don’t rush into the first job that comes along. The grass is not always greener on the other side. Consider all your options.

Career Counseling- Talk to a career counselor. You don’t want to change your entire life if you’re going through a mid-life crisis. Talking to a career counselor can help you make good choices whether you need a new career or just a life change.

Money doesn’t buy Happiness- Don’t change your career to make more money if it’s not a job you can be happy with. Money doesn’t make you happy. Choose a career that provides you with an income you’re comfortable with and allows you to enjoy your job.

Skills- When you’re in your 50’s it’s not unusual to realize the importance of making the most of your skills and knowledge. While this is something anyone with a job thinks about, as you get older you might want to also consider fulfilling your mental or spiritual needs.

Don’t be Afraid- Changing careers is a stressful time no matter what anyone says. Ask your family and friends for support when you need it.

Possibilities- Do a reality check. Set goals that you can achieve and are obtainable. Don’t confuse your dreams with reality.

Resentment- Don’t resent your younger co-workers. You were once in their shoes. They need you just as much as you need them!

Contacts- Don’t be afraid to use old contacts when you’re thinking about making the big change. They might have some helpful information you can use.

Alternatives- Maybe full-time work is not for you. Look at other alternatives such as volunteering, temp-work, consulting, part-time work, or maybe a combination of these.

Keep in Shape- As you get older it is most important that you stay healthy and fit, both mentally and physically. Make sure you maintain a positive outlook on life. Wisdom and health is a powerful combination!

Go with the Flow- As you get older it’s not always easy to agree with the younger generation. Learn not to be a stick in the mud. Times have changed and you need to be flexible.

Making a career change after 50 is not always easy, but it is possible. With a little persistence, a healthy and positive attitude, and the support of family and friends, you can change your career and continue having a productive and enjoyable life.

About the Author: Dr David McDermott walked away from a career as a plastic surgeon where he was helping people change on the outside. He now teaches profound personal change from the inside out. His main interest is in teaching people how to choose and achieve goals that are aligned with who they are and who they want to become.

A jawbone found in Aruba is not that of missing American Natalee Holloway, who was a recent high school-graduate at the time of her disappearance. Officials confirmed the news after Dutch scientists completed tests on the bone. The jawbone, which also had a wisdom tooth with it, was found by an American tourist close to the Phoenix Hotel. A second bone had also been found by another tourist earlier this month.

The bone was sent to the Netherlands Forensic Institute where scientists completed tests. They compared the bone to dental records given to them by Natalee’s father, from which they confirmed the the bone was not that of Natalee, although it was human. It was said to be unlikely that the bone was Holloway’s as there is no physical evidence that she was murdered.

Beth accepts the forensic conclusions, is emotionally exhausted from the inexplicably long wait, and deeply disappointed in the time and manner in which she learned of the results.

Taco Stein, the Aruban Solicitor General, released a statement after the announcement was made. He commented on the speed of the identification; he said that they had quickly ruled out Holloway because her records had shown that she had her wisdom teeth previously removed.

Tim Miller, the Director of the Texas EquuSearch, released a statement after talking to Natalee’s father. He said “Dave [Natalee’s father] has been in contact with Aruban authorities and spoke with FBI this morning, the agent working the case. Dave believes it is Natalee.”

An attorney for Natalee’s mother, Beth Twitty, released a statement saying “Beth accepts the forensic conclusions, is emotionally exhausted from the inexplicably long wait, and deeply disappointed in the time and manner in which she learned of the results.” He commented on the Aruban authorities saying that “Apparently Aruban prosecutors were more sensitive to media concerns than the painful vigil of a mother.”

Natalee Holloway disappeared on the island in 2005 while on a school trip. She was last seen leaving a nightclub with three men, one of which was later identified as Joran van der Sloot. Van der Sloot was detained twice by police but has never been charged with Holloway’s disappearance. He is currently in Peru facing a different murder charge. Aruban authorities have said that they are checking neighboring islands to find a match for other missing persons.

Adam Kokesh, an Iraq War veteran, activist, radio show host, and currently a candidate for the US Libertarian Party’s 2020 presidential nomination, spoke with Wikinews to discuss his background, political positions, and campaign for President of the United States.

Kokesh, who hails from Arizona, has been active in the anti-war movement since returning home from combat in Iraq. After an initial honorary discharge from active duty with the US Marine Corp in 2006, Kokesh was given a general discharge from the Marine Forces Reserve in 2007 after images of him wearing his uniform while participating in a protest with the Iraq Veterans Against the War were published in The Washington Post. Kokesh has also been involved in demonstrations in support of free speech, gun rights, and marijuana decriminalization. Some of these activities have resulted in his arrest. Kokesh previously hosted a show on RT and currently hosts a show on internet radio.

Politically, Kokesh supported the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns of Ron Paul. He was a featured speaker at Paul’s Rally for the Republic in 2008. Kokesh ran for US Congress as a Republican in 2010 in New Mexico and for US Senate in Arizona in 2018. He announced his 2020 candidacy in 2013 during a jailhouse interview. He has based his campaign on the pledge to begin “dissolving the federal government in a peaceful, orderly manner” and to resign as president and take the title of “Custodian of the Federal Government.”

Other contenders for the Libertarian Party’s 2020 presidential nomination include former Libertarian Party Vice Chairman Arvin Vohra, businessman John McAfee, and New Hampshire state representative Max Abramson. Congressman Justin Amash and former Rhode Island governor and US Senator Lincoln Chafee are both reportedly considering runs. Former New York gubernatorial candidate Larry Sharpe and former Massachusetts governor William Weld were both previously considered potential candidates but Sharpe suggested he would not run and Weld has decided to run in the 2020 Republican Party presidential primaries, challenging President Donald Trump.

With accredited Wikinews reporter William S. Saturn, Kokesh details his background and activism, his thoughts on the Libertarian Party, the Presidency of Donald Trump, and the goals for his campaign and presidency.

For some people a vacation truly means just a stay away from home in a hotel or other lodging. It is meant as a time for rest and relaxation. However, increasing numbers of travelers now want their vacations to be a window into the world and all that it offers. For those thrill seekers, only an Exotic Vacation Agency can help them find the adventures they so desire. An Exotic Vacation Agency truly has the knowledge necessary to make even the most remote location and extreme activities possible.

Any sort of getaway can be planned and reserved by an Exotic Vacation Agency for their guests. For example, cruises are always popular. A cruise can be a romantic trip to the Caribbean or a trip that explores the rugged coast of South America. Lodgings on land can be cottages on stilts standing in deep blue waters just off shore or tree house units high in the trees.

For some travelers, there is only one way to travel. They enjoy taking the typical tourist vacation to Hawaii, merely lounging by the hotel pool or setting a towel on the sand of a crowded beach. Visiting Hawaii as a thrill seeker is an entirely different trip. Now you can hike into the lush green playground of the island mountains and climb an inactive volcano in the footsteps of the first Hawaiians. But no active traveler stops there. Mexico our neighbor to the south is also a popular travel destination for the adventure oriented traveler. Explore the Yucatan of Mexico with an experienced tour guide as you trek through history with the remnants of the ancient Mayan civilization at your feet.
