Is it OK for doctors to 'google' patients?
Yahoo News - about 2 years
The practice of “googling” others for professional reasons or out of personal curiosity is so ubiquitous that the name of the popular Internet search engine has turned into a verb. The authors of a new paper in the Journal of General Internal Medicine write that sometimes, the practice is acceptable. They hope their paper sparks conversation among colleagues and the American Medical Association about the possibility of guidelines for providers in the digital age, one in which most medical students can't remember a world without search engines. “The motivation is to protect patients and prevent harm,” said Maria Baker, a Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute genetics counselor.

WATCH: Woman In Her 90s Gives Amazing Back-To-School Gift
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A Seattle woman in her 90s is helping a much younger generation get a head start this fall. Jean Renny donated $20,000 to the Salvation Army so about 100 low-income kids could go on a back-to-school shopping spree, King 5 News reported. The children each got $200 to spend at J.C. Penney on Tuesday. Many stocked up on classroom staples like pencils, notebooks and backpacks, King 5 footage above shows. But some kids desperately needed other basics, like footwear. "There was a child today whose feet were hurting him because his shoes were three sizes too small. … [T]hat's the way he showed up and we see that over and over again," Lora Marini Baker, a Salvation Army spokeswoman, told The Christian Post. Renny, a widow, did not have children and "is very interested in helping children," Baker said. Though Renny was not able to attend because of health issues, the Post said she would receive a video of the event. Her good deed ignited a pageful of well-wishers on ...

Collecting state sales taxes on Internet purchases (2 letters)
Denver Post - almost 5 years
Re: “State’s ‘Amazon tax’ was right idea in wrong place,” April 8 editorial. I wonder if those who are pushing a “fair sales tax” are thinking about the ramifications of a really fair tax. Local retailers today collect and remit taxes based on where they are located, not where their customers live. If online shops are to be required instead to collect and pay taxes to all the various jurisdictions where their customers live, then for a really level playing field, the “store down the road” should have to demand legal proof of residence from customers and collect and remit sales tax based on the city and state of residence. I think instead the only logical answer to the “level playing field” argument is to require online stores to collect and remit sales taxes to the places where they are registered as businesses. I’m not sure that in this case Colorado would get the tax windfall for which the legislators are hoping. Sharon Mumper, Colorado Springs This letter was published in th ...
