11:05 am
the city says the savings come from using new plowing techniques. for example, the city had more plows working simultaneously to clear the larger streets faster. some college community students in cedar rapids are looking at how cities treat roads in the winter. students did research and tests to see if a new mixture would work better. they showed off their work to the city's streets superintendent yesterday. students started with the city's mixture of salt, sand and chloride. then - they created their own mixtures with everything from beet juice to cheese. they tried both the city's mix and their own mixes on pans filled with ice. teachers say they want students to think about the science behind the winter road treatment process. " 20:03:02 we did some research on alternatives, so they've learned that chloride the salt they put on the street, do cause the road and the water system."

" i believe it is going to be foolhardy to think that
11:07 am
system is going to be, really a savings for iowa, or a savings for our children." governor branstad says managed care will save money and improve efficiency. while critics say it will reduce health care options for medicaid patients. senate democrats have created a medicaid oversight bill that cleared committee last week. today, the subcommittee plans to hold a public comment session and hear what people have to say about this bill. the legislation would give lawmakers new methods to monitor privatized care in iowa. fewer cases of breast cancer country. but more women are opting to take drastic measures to avoid it altogether. and more people are coming down with the zika week the c-d-c released new predictions on how far the virus could spread. meteorologist justin gehrts

then surgeons began to preserve normal breast areas by doing lumpectomies instead? now in a surprising new finding from researchers at the us agency for healthcare research and quality, the trend seems to be changing again. total mastectomies, complete removal of the breast - jumped by more than a third between 2005 and 2013. part of the reason for the increase was a doubling in the number of women opting for double mastectomies; having both breasts removed even if cancer is found only in one. actress angelina jolie made headlines when she had both her breasts removed, because she had a genetic mutation, which raises cancer risk. doctors suggest that some high-risk women prefer having the double surgery to the anxiety of having frequent mammograms and biopsies. survival rates are no different for women who have a mastectomy versus women who have a smaller lumpectomy. but double mastectomies do, of course, reduce the chance of developing cancer in the other breast. obviously each woman needs to make a decision about what is best for her. with this medical minute, i'm dr timothy johnson.

"the market looks very good, very strong again here this morning. feeders leading the way higher. we're still waiting on the cash market to trade yet this week. but we're seeing a lot of short covering a lot of new spec money coming as well too. the key now will be for the cash market to stand together and trade 136-138 this week or not." "a little more of a mixed trade. not much going on. a little bit of a spillover yesterday from the cattle sector but here today a little bit of spread action buying the nearby selling the deferred. but really lackluster right now. and waiting on to see if this cash market can surge back up and support it again or not." ---- even though the farm economy is trending downwards.. agriculture
