more doubts over his citizenship. on twitter, trump wrote: sadly, there is no way that ted cruz can continue running in the republican primary unless he can erase doubt on eligibility. dems will sue! cruz struck back - going beyond defending his u-s citizenship, to questioning trump's character. in a radio interview, cruz said it's clear his campaign's surge has rattled trump. he told voters to consider the billionaire businessman's values suggesting trump has little in common with voters in iowa and new hampshire. (voice of ted cruz, (r) presidential candidate) "well, look, i think he may shift in his new rallies to play 'new york, new york' because donald comes from new york and he embodies new york values." (nats "born in the usa") for his part, trump blasts born in the usa at his rallies. a not-so-subtle reminder cruz was born in canada. his mother was a u-s citizen. a strategy that could explain how trump has narrowed the gap with cruz in the latest iowa poll from the des moines register and bloomberg from 10 points a month ago to 3 points now. with trump on top of the republican field in all national polls, the gop establishment grows more concerned. in the party's response to president obama's state of the union address, south carolina governor nikki haley challenged the rhetoric of her own party's frontrunner. (gov. nikki haley, (r) south carolina) "during anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation." haley told reporters today it was trump and others she was calling out.

(sot: dr. jonathan foret, orthopedic surgeon) "usually they come in and just say that they fell, but after talking to them a little more, because their injury is typically more than we would see from a regular fall, they say they were trying out their hoverboard or their kid's hoverboard and had a fall." (reporter standup: britney glaser) "hoverboard injuries have increased so rapidly, that the consumer product safety commission has issued a warning to users about fall risks." (sot: dr. jonathan foret, orthopedic surgeon) "we've been seeing injuries both to the bones and joints, wrists and ankle injuries, fractures and those types of things," said dr. foret. "it's been more than what would be expected just from a typical fall." doctor foret says injuries are more serious because of the height and speed behind the fall. (sot: dr. jonathan foret, orthopedic surgeon) "i think they underestimate the stability of it and so they get on it and probably don't have the right protective equipment and then they fall and when they fall from an elevated platform, the energy is quite a bit more than falling from standing," said dr. foret. some of the broken bones have required casts.. even surgery, other tears, sprains, and strains can ground a person for several weeks. doctor foret offers these tips if you plan to step aboard a hoverboard.
