charge less per treatment. if we charge less her treatment, do they pass those savings to patient themselves. >> the other thing is the amount of stress that the system is under. you wouldn't want your doctor to be constantly treating patient after patient, running from room to room thinking about the next patient while treating you. i try to make sure that the doctor themselvess are under a safe amount of treatment and can direct more >> talk about this treatment footprint per dollar. what's that is and how will it make hospitals 30 pen usually more they're looking out how investmentment direct affect it is number of treatment that is can occur. each percent of equipment can cost millions and almosts of dollars. $5million on a radiation treatment machine, if it can increase the number of people
million. that means that the treatment per patient is only $1: that would mean it only costs the patient to $1 to be completely treated for their condition. >> >> bring this on a patient level. is it affecting the equal quality of care they're getting. >> the quality of care is one thing and also the time. everybody values time some the quicker that the patient seen from appointment to appointment or from one section of the hospital to the next is making sure that the patient can get out as quick as possible and the next patient can come in. >> but the one thing we look at is to make sure that the actual time that the patient is being looked at is not -- so we are only looking at the waiting times and not actual the time the patient is looked at. if we keep the time is patient
that means they can actually pay attention you as a person instead of just as a number or as a file. >> wow. sophomore at nc state. you have a bright future ahead of you. i am sure you are going to help a lot of people. we will send it over to bill. >> >> very, very nice. interview and yes i agree about that future. it is another redo for facebook trending topics feature, how that is taking the human element out to impress critics and we will

as you head out. they're not generally producing anrawon't produce much this afternoon either except for maybe along and east of i- 95. we will talk about why that is coming up. 70 is our current temperature at the airport. our dew point is 78. nice to have them into the 60s instead of 70s. it is a touch muggy butanes as much as the adsory. so we backed off that intense heat just a it is 64 in rockboro, 73 in goldsboro, and 78 in fayette april clinton. we have high pressure that will keep things fairly dry. ssthure system have winds that rotate clockwise, around this high will be mostly dry: but the eastern extent of that lies somewhere along the i-9 acorridor so we do have an on shore flow coming especially related to tropical depression eight. that may bring showers and
that's where we will have best chance. lookt he, three systems that we are tracking right no noe is headed out into the atlantic and it will be weakening. it should not be a threat to united states. we won't have to talk too much about that one, but tropical depression eight is next in line to have an impact on north carolina followed by tropical depression nine potentially. here a look, from tropical depression eight. we ve we can expect one to three inches of rain along the coast, 35 to 45 miles per hour wind gust, that's not enough to do much damage except toss trash cans and lawn furniture. we should have low lying flooding, maybe a little overwash on highway 12 because it takes too much to see that happening but this is not like throw be something that causes a lot of major damage. it is likely to get a name some time later today, and by tomorrow morning and into tomorrow afternoon it brushes
45 miles per hour winds, and it heads to the north and east. >> then we start tracking tropical depression no. 9. it should get a name later today, and it korma's cross the peninsula -- it comes across the peninsula. we are watching that closely, if something changes with the track, that's a long way away. it could have some impact on north >> the bus stop, we have a morning temperature of 73. at 3:00, the a chance of thunderstorm, not likely to have much rain around here, it looks dry at least through wednesday, a chance of thunderstorms on thursday but a trace to a quarter of an inch around here. ryan is here, and we have a

again, 70 eastbound blocked between 85 and cheek road. we are seeing pretty heavy northbound delays on i-85 today. let's look at the map and maybe the best way to get around that the d.o.t. is suggesting that you take the suggesting that freeway southbound all the way down to alexander and then over to 70. that's an option for you this morning. again, seeing pretty heavy traffic on 85 northbound around the 70 interchange, rit now at least, the southbound side of the durham freeway, that alternate route is about those coming up in a few minute. >> >> thank you. facebook is taking new steps to reduce the role of human judgment in the trending topics future. trending topics is the focus of controversy over the claim it is service was suppressing conservative news. facebook denied any bias. facebook say it is topics are selected by algorithm. editors will still make the list but they will not write the head line or a summary.
