|Ex-CIA Officer Arrested On Suspicion Of Exposing U.S. Spy Network In ChinaMTPR / 1 h. 49 min. ago more|
A former Central Intelligence Agency officer is under arrest on charges of illegally retaining highly classified information relating to the U.S. spy network in China – including notebooks containing lists of informants and details of their operations, the Justice Department announced Tuesday. Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, a naturalized U.S. citizen who now lives in Hong Kong, was taken into custody Monday night at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. An investigation of the former CIA case officer began in 2012, five years after he left the agency, the Justice Department says. He began working at the CIA in 1994 and had a top-secret clearance. A court affidavit says that in 2012, while Lee and his family were in Honolulu during a layover en route from Hong Kong to the U.S., the FBI executed a court-authorized search of his hotel room. There, agents found and photographed the contents of two small books that contained handwritten notes "pertaining to, but not limited to, operational notes

|Why It's So Hard To Shop For Health CareMTPR / 9 h. 32 min. ago more|
Shopping for health care is kind of like going to a grocery store where there aren’t any price tags. That jar of spaghetti sauce might cost $4, or maybe $50. But in health care you typically don’t find out prices until you get to the checkout counter. People with one kind of card pay one price, those with another pay a different one, and you may do better or worse if you offer cash. Last year Montana lawmakers, frustrated by how hard it is to shop for the best deal in healthcare, set up a special committee to find solutions. That committee meets for the first time Wednesday.
|White House Doctor Says Trump Is In 'Excellent' Physical, Cognitive HealthMTPR / 9 h. 47 min. ago more|
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwDTv1_LYcY President Trump is in excellent health with "no indication" of "any cognitive issues" — but he could afford to lose a few pounds and start exercising over the coming year, according to the president's physician. Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral who directs the White House medical unit, conducted Trump's annual physical last Friday. He told reporters on Tuesday that the president's cardiac health is strong and that there are no concerns about any memory or cognitive issues. "I found no evidence that the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process," Jackson told reporters during Tuesday's White House briefing. The tabloid-style book Fire and Fury by journalist Michael Wolff, published this month, led to speculation about Trump's mental fitness for office. Trump responded to the criticism by calling himself a " very stable genius ." Jackson said on Tuesday that Trump asked him to perform the cognitive exam, which the

|Man Ruptures His Throat By Stifling A Big Sneeze, Prompting Doctors' WarningMTPR / 10 h. 13 min. ago more|
Now, there is ample reason for you to cover your nose when you sneeze. It's flu season , after all, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has made it quite clear it doesn't want you spreading your germs with reckless abandon. But let's not go overboard here, people. In a report Monday in the journal BMJ Case Reports, several ear, nose and throat specialists detail the woes of a man who tried to entirely stifle a strong sneeze. And those woes aren't exactly pretty. The unnamed patient in question — a 34-year-old described as "previously fit and well" — attempted to stop a particularly forceful sneeze by "pinching the nose and holding his mouth closed." Not long afterward, he noticed something was wrong. It hurt when he swallowed and he observed a "change of voice." What's more, his neck had swollen and, when he tried to move it, produced an unsettling popping and crackling sensation. As it turns out, his doctors noticed it too, once he had been admitted to the emergency
|We Asked, You Answered: What Shaped Trump's View Of Poor Countries?MTPR / 10 h. 21 min. ago more|
On Friday, we posed this question to our audience: What do you think of the way poor countries are portrayed by aid groups and the media? The question came in light of President Donald Trump's reported description of El Salvador, Haiti and nations in Africa as "shithole countries" last week. "When well-meaning people describe poverty as a hellhole, we shouldn't be surprised that people end up thinking of poor places as 'shitholes,' " tweeted Dina Pomerantz , a prominent development economist at the University of Zurich. More than 100 readers shared their thoughts in our online form and Twitter . One blogger even wrote a reaction blog on the topic, saying it's unfair to make the connection between Trump's comments and the way aid groups portray poverty. Here's a roundup of responses, which have been edited for length and clarity. We're using the same old stereotypes. "While many NGOs and aid agencies are working to shift the narrative around poverty, many still use the tired old tropes.
|Veteran Sues After Scalpel Found Inside His Body 4 Years After SurgeryMTPR / 10 h. 27 min. ago more|
Glenford Turner had surgery in 2013 at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Connecticut. Four years later, according to a new lawsuit, doctors discovered that a sharp metal surgical instrument had been accidentally left inside the Army veteran's body. "It's perplexing to me how they could be so incompetent that a scalpel that really should only be on the exterior of your body not only goes into the body but then is sewn into the body," Turner's lawyer, Joel Faxon, tells NPR. "It's a level of incompetence that's almost incomprehensible." The lawsuit alleges that a trainee surgeon performed the radical prostatectomy at VA Connecticut Healthcare System, West Haven Campus. "Subsequent to the surgery, [Turner] had unidentifiable abdominal pain at the time," Faxon says. "Nobody could ever really figure out what it was." The object was discovered when Turner, now 61, went for MRI in 2017 for a separate medical issue. The magnet in the MRI machine "reacts to the scalpel in his abdomen, and you have
