A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse (RN) who has pursued extra clinical training and a master's degree and is able to practice medicine beyond the scope of what a regular RN can. How far beyond that scope NPs should be allowed to go is a question facing legislators across the country.
If a 911 call could ever be considered cute, this one sure is. A 5 year old girl calls 911 when she realizes that her father has chest pain and out of breath. Take a listen to Savannah's call that was being replayed on a TV show...
Change is difficult. Real change is really difficult.
I ran for the office of mayor of Cincinnati with one overriding pledge: To reverse the reckless direction of the past few years, a direction that threatened the very solvency of the city.
Our bond rating has been reduced, and may be again. We have spent one-time resources to balance the budget and the prior administration even tried to mortgage our parking system for some quick cash.
It simply cannot continue.
Decisions must be made that wisely spend our precious resources so that we can deliver good basic services to our residents, keep our neighborhoods safe, and create jobs–the pathway to a larger and diverse middle class.
The naysayers on council may say the first week was less than stellar. Actually it was a productive beginning on a new course.
We killed a bad parking deal and are taking a careful look at a streetcar project that is already over budget.
And we opened up government. People could be heard. Speakers were not limited as in the past and I listened carefully to everyone. Council members could freely express themselves, and actually introduce motions that will get a full hearing.
The public now has a two-year-old memo that indicates the streetcar is actually going to cost $15 million more than the city had previously acknowledged.
Change is difficult, and the naysayers on council will try to protect the past. But I see a bright, big and transparent future for our city. I invite all, including those who have been loud critics of me after one week, to join the progress we will share.

A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday.

The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.
“I said well go ahead,” said May. “And I said really? You’re kidding me right, and she said no it looks like a gun.”
“She took my monkey’s gun,” said May, who has retained her sense of humor.
