Changes Coming To Kidney Transplant Waiting List

WASHINGTON (AP) — New rules this week are bringing changes to the nation’s kidney transplant system that will give some patients a better shot at a longer-lasting organ, and move others up the waiting list. The goal is to get the maximum benefit out of a scarce resource: kidneys from deceased donors. “Not everyone’s going to get the same benefit out of a kidney transplant,” said Dr. Matthew J. Ellis of Duke University Medical Center, who is optimistic the new policy will help. “We’re trying to apply commonsense principles to address those issues.” The long-awaited changes from the United...

Wilson runs, throws Seahawks past Redskins, 27-17

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — All Robert Griffin III did was throw some passes to another injured player on the sideline before the game started. All Russell Wilson did was run, throw, scramble — and simply amaze. Wilson has left his fellow 2012 draft-mate in the dust, just as the Seattle Seahawks have risen to a level far above the current state of affairs with the Washington Redskins. Even on a Monday night when the reigning Super Bowl champs were stopping themselves early and often with ill-timed penalties, they were still easily the better team in a 27-17 victory. “It...
