Occassional Dimes

  • Robert Parker: Charlie Rose devotes a full hour to the world's most influential wine critic.

  • Unrest in Tibet (plus elections in Taiwan): Recent hour-long discussion on KQED's Forum.

  • The remaining entries are on health care related topics.

  • Treating the Numbers: Treating the numbers refers to the tendency of some Doctors "... to get a patient's test results to a certain target, which they assume will treat — or prevent — disease. But earlier this year, a study on a widely used cholesterol drug challenged that assumption."

  • Publicly-funded clinical trials of prescription drugs: Researchers highlight the many benefits of junking the current system, which relies heavily on Big Pharma.

  • Outsourcing the Patients: U.S. insurance companies are realizing that it is cheaper to have medical procedures performed overseas -- even after the cost of travel for patients and their families are included. Let's see if this revives supersonic travel!

  • Medical Tourism and Thailand: Not only are more Americans checking into Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok, the hospital has announced an alliance with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of South Carolina. Bumrungrad is one of the top hospitals in Thailand.
