They packed the human skin in cardboard boxes lined with foam and dry ice, and shipped it off. With that, the workers at a facility in southwestern Ohio became part of an incredible drama unfolding 8,000 miles away. A volcano had just rained superheated ash, steam and gas over New Zealand's White Island, a tourist site that dozens of people from around the world were visiting for the day. Some people perished before they could be rescued. Many of the survivors were left badly burned. And doctors were now struggling with another huge problem. They were low on human skin to temporarily cover the burns. Urgent calls went out to skin banks - a vital but niche part of the world of rapid-response medicine. At Community Tissue Services in Kettering, Ohio - on a campus overlooking a quiet pond outside Dayton - a shipment was quickly pulled together of around 300 square feet of human skin, or enough to fully cover more than 15 bodies. "It takes a huge amount of skin when you have an … [Read more...] about New Zealand needed human skin to treat volcano burn victims. Help came from Ohio.

As the clock ticks toward the next possible government shutdown in two weeks, it is time to stop future shutdowns forever. The most recent government shutdown cost the economy $11 billion and lasted 35 days, during which time federal workers missed paychecks, contractors were out of work, government services were disrupted, businesses suffered, economic growth was damaged and consumer confidence took a big hit.ADVERTISEMENTEven worse was the loss of confidence in our political system. The shutdown was an international embarrassment and effectively a self-imposed disaster. It is not supposed to work this way. Every year, Congress and the president are supposed to agree on a set of appropriations bills to fund the government on time. Otherwise, they are supposed to pass a temporary “continuing resolution” extending current funding.

Steve Addazio? Really, dude? A retread from the coaching scrap heap was the best candidate the Rams could find to lead their football program? Please tell me Colorado State is kidding. Oh, I’m sure the 60-year-old coach who lost 48-24 to lowly Kansas in September before getting fired Dec. 1 by Boston College is a fine man. He has been called Vitamin Addazio, a reference to his energetic game-day pep talks. He coaches with his hair on fire, which might explain his clean-shaven dome. But from all appearances, when looking to fill a new $220 million football stadium with something more than apathy, CSU athletic director Joe Parker’s No. 1 criteria was to find a coach who had eaten a cheeseburger with Urban Meyer, who actively consulted with the Rams during their search.I’m not certain, however, that Addazio was even Urban’s best available friend. Tony Alford, genuinely proud to be a CSU Ram, was the obvious choice for this job. He gained 1,845 yards rushing for the … [Read more...] about Kiszla: Really, dude?
