Beth LeBlanc The Detroit News Published 9:25 AM EDT Oct 19, 2018 The Republican and Democratic candidates for secretary of state have similar goals of easing visits to state offices for driver's licenses and vehicle registrations as well as improving voting options, but strikingly different ways of achieving them. Democrat Jocelyn Benson is promising a 30-minute guarantee of service at state offices — much like Mike Duggan's 30-minute guaranteed emergency room service when he headed the Detroit Medical Center. Republican Mary Treder Lang is advocating for more online services so residents don't need to visit the office more than once every eight years. Treder Lang opposes same-day voter registration, one of the key changes in Proposal 3, while Benson views it as an expansion of voting rights and participation. Benson backs the redistricting commission in Proposal 2, arguing it is a fairer way to draw political boundaries, while Treder Lang contends … [Read more...] about Jocelyn Benson, Treder Lang clash on SOS reforms, voting changes

But there is no reliable system for telling patients or doctors that the results of their genetic tests are no longer valid. ByGina Kolata Oct. 16, 2018 The results of a genetic test may seem final — after all, a gene mutation is present or it is not. That mutation increases the risk of a disease, or it does not. In fact, those findings are not as straightforward as they might seem, and the consequences may have grave implications for patients. While a person’s genome doesn’t change, the research linking particular bits of DNA to disease is very much in flux. Geneticists and testing labs constantly receive new information that leads them to reassess genetic mutations. As a result, a mutation The result: The … [Read more...] about The Results of Your Genetic Test Are Reassuring. But That Can Change.
