Pete's Prep: Friday, Nov. 1, 2019

  • The Washington Post: "A new cystic fibrosis therapy dramatically improved patients’ lung function and showed clear signs of targeting the genetic root of the disease, instead of just alleviating symptoms — a breakthrough so long-sought that many doctors and patients are moved to tears when talking about it."
  • The NY Times: "Senator Elizabeth Warren on Friday proposed $20.5 trillion in new spending through huge tax increases on businesses and wealthy Americans to pay for “Medicare for all,” laying out details for a landmark government expansion that will pose political risks for her presidential candidacy while also allowing her to say she is not raising taxes on the middle class to pay for her health care plan."
  • WLOS TV: "The North Carolina General Assembly has gone home for a brief respite still without a final two-year budget and Medicaid deals after nine months of legislating."
  • The Asheville Citizen-Times: "Buncombe commissioners may implement changes to their trash contract following widespread complaints about Waste Pro, the service provider for the county's unincorporated areas."
  • The Daily Wire: "A new study out of Penn State’s Political Science Department found that rather than conservative content online leading to radicalization, as the popular “gateway” narrative insists, the reverse appears to be true."
  • The Wall Street Journal: "...a study, published Wednesday in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association, that doctors say shows encouraging results. Among healthy patients, people who made changes in nutrition and exercise showed cognitive improvements on average. People who were already experiencing some memory problems also showed cognitive improvement—if they followed at least 60% of the recommended changes. It’s unclear whether the lifestyle changes can actually help prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease, or simply improve cognition."
