Downside risks include macroeconomic weakness negatively impact DIS, particularly the Parks segment, pay-TV cord-cutting remains a risk and ESPN programming rights costs grow quicker than expected. Upside risks include improving consumer sentiment driving strength in advertising, theme parks, and consumer products. Macquarie gave Disney an Overweight rating with a $93.00 price target on July 25, noting that Disneys newest movie, Planes, has been lagging at the box office. Foxs Dawn of the Planet of the Apes defended at top with $36m domestic against a $170m budget. This is a ~50% drop from its debut week, which is on par with its predecessors drop but better vs. other summer sequels this year that saw a +60% decline on their second weekends. Universals The Purge sequel enjoyed a solid debut at $30m against a $9m budget, while Disneys Planes sequel missed with $18m (vs. predecessors $22m), against a $50m budget. American International Group American International Group is expected to report second quarter EPS of $1.06 on revenue of $8.13 billion, compared to last years EPS of $1.12 on revenue of $8.35 billion. Sterne Agee gave AIG a Neutral rating with a $57.00 price target on July 17, noting that the industry has been lackluster recently. Despite a fairly benign operating environment and reasonably strong equity market performance, we find most of our 2Q estimates are modestly below consensus.

Two Men Steal Surfboards from Paralyzed Marine Who Teaches Surfing to Disabled Children




Randy Abbott had served in the Marine Corps for 14 years as a recon scout sniper. At the end of his service, he needed back surgery, but when his spinal cord was accidentally severed, he was left paralyzed from the waist down. Thanks to specially-designed surfboards which allowed him to get back into the water, he was able to contradict doctors predictions that he would never surf again. In fact, in addition to surfing three to visit site four times a week, Abbott even opened a surf camp for kids with disabilities. However, last Monday night, two thugs assaulted Abbott and threw him out of his wheelchair, leaving him with cuts and scrapes. One guy was cutting the straps and I said, Hey, Im paralyzed, dont steal my surfboards! Abbott recalls. And then the other guy came at me and took a swing at me, and I took a swing at him. He missed, and I connected, Abbott continued. I caught him with a pretty good uppercut. The former Marine went on to explain that the assailant who had cut the straps then came around behind him and threw him out of his wheelchair. The man then kicked the wheelchair, which rolled some 50 feet down the parking lot. Then they threw my surfboards in the back of their (Toyota) 4Runner and took off, Abbott said. Abbott describes the two assailants as white males between 20 and 26 years old, one a shaggy blond and the other with a long brown ponytail.

Management of Anticoagulant-Associated Intracerebral Hemorrhage




They offer a review of current oral anticoagulation therapies and describe various agents mechanisms of action. Beginning with warfarin, the most well known and widely used anticoagulation agent, the authors move through newer oral anticoagulants such as the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran etexilate and the direct factor Xa inhibitors rivaroxaban and apixaban. The authors review administration of vitamin K, fresh frozen plasma, prothrombin complex concentrates (both three-factor [used off label] and four-factor PCCs), and recombinant factor VIIa, as well as the use of dialysis, in reversing the effects of anticoagulants. Reversal of warfarins effects has been widely tested, and the supplement offers a sample protocol for this. There are far fewer studies of reversal of the targeted oral anticoagulants (dabigatran etexilate, rivaroxaban, and apixaban), for which no specific antidotes have been identified as yet. The authors describe current and potential treatments used in cases of AAICH involving these agents. The authors review the American Heart AssociationAmerican Stroke Association Guidelines for the management of spontaneous ICH. These AHA Guidelines include reversal strategies for AAICH but were written before the newer oral anticoagulants were approved for use. The authors point out that investigations of ICH treatment are ongoing and discuss a number of recent clinical trials. Also discussed are surgery for AAICH and the controversy over when to restart oral anticoagulation therapy following AAICH. Institutional protocols for the treatment of spontaneous ICH and AAICH, involving a multidisciplinary approach, are discussed and their development in individual institutions is strongly recommended. Learning Objectives As noted earlier, CME credits are offered to those interested.

Oh, Boy! Woman Gives Birth In Compton Alley « Cbs Los Angeles








Luckily, the unidentified woman found an abandoned couch and took a seat, according to Compton Fire Department Battalion Chief Ken Benson. The woman delivered the baby on her own while screaming for help, prompting people living nearby to call 911, a videographer said. Her baby boy was born at 3:30 a.m. near Greenleaf and Long Beach boulevards, Benson said. There were no apparent problems and there were normal vital signs, Benson said. I dont think she (the mother) was getting all the care she was supposed to getShe delivered the placenta, too. Firefighters arrived to find the woman holding her son, who still had the umbilical cord attached. The woman and baby were taken to a hospital for examination and were said to be in fine condition.

Paralyzed Marine Who Was Assaulted and Robbed Inspires Others




Randy Abbott spent 14 years as a Marine Corps recon scout sniper and his back required surgery after he got out of the service. But surgeons accidentally severed his spinal cord, which led to him becoming paralyzed and in need of a wheelchair. Instead of feeling bad about himself and his situation, Abbott started a non-profit called The View From 42, which trains rescue to service dogs. He also founded a surf camp for children with disabilities. He was able to do this with the help of custom-made surfboards that are designed for people with disabilities. But two thugs threatened his livelihood when they allegedly assaulted Abbott on Monday night by throwing him out of his wheelchair and kicking it 50 feet down a parking lot and then stealing his surfboards and fleeing the scene in a Toyota 4Runner. The former Marine says he spotted the men cutting the leash from his boards as he exited his training center. I was right there in my wheelchair, Abbott said. I said, Hey, Im paralyzed. Dont steal my surfboards! And then they came and attacked me. The public has come forth to show support for Abbott by starting a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to replace his surfboards.

Makita Brings Brushless Motor Technology to OPE Category with New 18V LXT® Stri




At AACC's annual meeting, Chuan-xin Wang, MD, PhD, director and professor of clinical laboratory medicine at China's Shandong University, will present the results of a study to find new colorectal cancer biomarkers. Wang identified four microRNAs in the blood that were highly accurate in diagnosing colorectal cancer and were able to differentiate stage I and II patients from healthy controls. This discovery could enable doctors to diagnose patients when they are in the early stages of the disease and most likely to respond to treatment. A major obstacle in treating go!! multiple myeloma is that almost all patients who achieve remission eventually relapse. Most of these relapses are due to undetectable minimal residual disease (MRD), which is the persistence of small numbers of myeloma cells in a patient's body following successful treatment. John Mills, PhD, a clinical chemistry fellow at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, will present his findings at AACC's annual meeting on a highly sensitive mass spectrometry method known as miRAMM for detecting MRD in patients with multiple myeloma. Mills' method uses blood samples, a more reliable test than traditional MRD tests that use bone marrow samplesbecause not all myeloma cells are confined to the bone marrow. This new method could increase survival rates of multiple myeloma patients by identifying those who need treatment for MRD. Obstructive sleep apnea in children can lead to behavioral difficulties, learning disabilities, pulmonary/systemic hypertension, and decreased growth. However, the current gold standard for diagnosing sleep apneathe overnight sleep studyis labor intensive, expensive, and limited by availability, in addition to being a potentially traumatic experience for children. At the AACC annual meeting, Trevor Pitcher, PhD, a clinical chemistry fellow at the University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky, will report the results of research showing that an immunoassay can effectively detect in urine the stress-coping peptide urocortin 3, which is significantly increased in children with sleep apnea.

Janet Patton: The Advantages And Disadvantages To Cutting The Cable Cord | Family | Kentucky.com








This could come as a problem, since Roku and Google are constantly working on improving their services. Apple has updated their software before, but this could be the first major upgrade. Apple employees have revealed that there is a major problem with upgrading Apple TV and that is the cable companies themselves. The Comcast-Time Warner Merger has certainly slowed things to a crawl, but sources say that they are all dragging their heels when it comes to working on a deal that will allow live streaming on Apples device. CNBC has already signed on for live broadcasts, and Fox recently joined the on demand band wagon, but that still leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to those cutting the cable cord. With companies like Roku and Google on the rise, Apple has to step up their game in a big way, although that might be a problem since the upgrade might not be released until some time in 2015. Apple already has a number of products on the horizon, even if they have to delay the release of the Apple TVs free upgrade. With the iWatch and iPhone coming soon, fans might be appeased for the time being. Once the cable merger is settled, it could only be a short period of time before they are back on track.

Japan teen murder accused 'wanted to dissect' someone: report - Yahoo News




"Do you need premium channels, HD channels, movie channels? Or could you go back to standard cable package?" Hunter said. "The other thing we also tell people is cable is one place you can negotiate your price." It's true: You've probably heard that obnoxious recording of a cable operator attempting to stop a customer from cutting off service. That's extreme but it's basically standard procedure to attempt to retain customers. The main way cable companies do this is by offering a lower price. So the next time the cable bill sends you through the roof, call and threaten to cancel. But what if you really mean it? Going cable-free requires a mental shift, but it's pretty easy for most people these days. With a decent antenna, you can get major broadcast channels and public television. You may not even need a digital antenna; old UHF versions still work sometimes. In Lexington, KET viewers sometimes need an outdoor antenna or antenna booster amplifier to pick up the local public television channels, the station said. Add internet service and you can find a lot more good and bad TV.
