Five US Marines missing after aircraft crash into sea off Japan

Five U.S. Marines were missing after two Marine Corps aircraft collided in mid-air and crashed into the sea off the coast of Japan on Thursday, in what U.S. officials said may have been a refueling exercise gone wrong.

Japan’s defense ministry said its maritime forces had so far found two of the seven Marines who were aboard the aircraft — an F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet and KC-130 Hercules — at the time of the incident.

One was in a stable condition at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, while the second had been found about 10 hours after the collision and brought aboard a Japanese military vessel, the ministry said. No other details about the second Marine were known, a ministry spokesman said.

Search and rescue efforts for the remaining five continued.

The incident adds to a growing list of U.S. military aviation accidents around the world in recent years, prompting hearings in Congress to address the rise.

The Military Times reported earlier this year that aviation accidents jumped nearly 40 percent from fiscal years 2013 to 2017. At least 133 service members were killed in those incidents, it said.

U.S. military accidents are a sensitive topic in Japan, particularly for residents of the southern prefecture of Okinawa, which is home to the bulk of the U.S. presence in the country. A series of emergency landings and parts falling from U.S. military aircraft have highlighted safety concerns.

“The incident is regrettable, but our focus at the moment is on search and rescue,” Japanese Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya told a news conference. “Japan will respond appropriately once the details of the incident are uncovered.”

The Marine Corps said in a statement the incident occurred around 2 a.m. local time in Japan (1700 GMT Wednesday) about 200 miles off the Japanese coast.

The two aircraft had launched from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni and were conducting regular training when there was a “mishap,” the Marine Corps said.

The Marine Corps did not elaborate on the nature of the incident. A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it occurred during a refueling exercise.

Officials who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity were unsure precisely how the mishap occurred but none suspected foul play. An investigation has begun.

Trump keeps promising to protect pre-existing condition coverage — but his policies say otherwise

President Donald Trump promised again Wednesday to protect coverage for Americans with pre-existing conditions. His repeated pledges ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections mask the fact that his administration has backed efforts to undermine the popular Affordable Care Act provision.

On Wednesday morning, the president claimed that Republicans will “totally protect people” with pre-existing conditions, while “Democrats will not!” Trump’s tweet was his second this month promising to fight for the protections. Democrats have hammered the GOP over the issue as they try to take a House majority in November’s elections.

The ACA bars insurance companies from charging customers more or denying them coverage if they have a health problem before their coverage begins. Even as Trump has publicly backed pre-existing condition coverage, his administration has helped to put the provision in jeopardy. The Justice Department decided not to defend Obamacare in court against a Republican-led lawsuit from 20 states challenging the health-care law’s constitutionality.

They argue the full Affordable Care Act does not hold up legally after Republicans scrapped its core individual mandate provision as part of their tax law last year. By declining to defend Obamacare, the Trump administration tacitly supported the litigation, which could lead to the end of the pre-existing condition provision if the states win their lawsuit.

On Monday, his administration also moved to expand access to short-term health plans that may not necessarily cover pre-existing conditions. Health-care advocates also raised concerns that the House’s Obamacare repeal plan — which all Democrats opposed as it narrowly passed the chamber last year with GOP support — could weaken the protections. Republicans never managed to repeal the law as the Senate failed to pass its own version of the bill.

Democrats have made health care their top messaging priority as they try to flip the House and numerous governor’s offices around the country. Attacks over pre-existing conditions have put Republicans on the defensive. Now, numerous politicians who backed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare are pledging their support for the provision, which about three-quarters of Americans support, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation survey.

Even a U.S. Senate candidate who signed on to the lawsuit challenging Obamacare — Missouri’s Republican attorney general, Josh Hawley — has promised to protect pre-existing condition coverage as he pushes to repeal the law.

It is unclear how Republicans would protect people with pre-existing conditions if they got rid of Obamacare. As Democrats hammer them over health care, GOP lawmakers have proposed bills to shield those patients.

But the proposals have possible loopholes that could jeopardize coverage, according to Politifact.

Trusted health sites spread myths about a deadly pregnancy complication

Preeclampsia, a dangerous form of hypertension that can develop during pregnancy or in the days and weeks after childbirth, is one of the most common causes of maternal death and severe complications in the U.S. The large majority of deaths occur after delivery, often from strokes.

But you’d never know it from the incomplete, imprecise, outdated and sometimes misleading information published by some of the most trusted consumer health sites in the country.

Instead, you might come away with the impression that, as Harvard Health Publishing says, preeclampsia “occurs only during pregnancy.”

More from ProPublica:

Five first responders to the Pulse massacre. One diagnosis: PTSD.

Have you had problems changing your name or gender marker?

How two common medications became one $455 million specialty pill

From an article on the government-affiliated site MedlinePlus, you might conclude that the “cure” for preeclampsia is delivering the baby. Until this weekend, the Mayo Clinic’s site said the same thing. In reality, said Eleni Tsigas, executive director of the Preeclampsia Foundation, even after delivery, “it can still take a while for the mother to get better, and some mothers get worse before they get better.” If treatment is delayed because people believe the danger is in the past, mothers can die.

Preeclampsia has been back in the news, thanks to Beyoncé’s Vogue interview discussing her recent experience with the condition. That’s led to a spike in Google searches of symptoms, preventive measures and treatments. Many of those readers are going to health websites that regularly make Top 10 lists for trustworthiness, and journalists are linking to the same highly regarded sites in their stories. Yet the information on some of those sites — especially about the risks of preeclampsia in the postpartum period — has been “bad or misleading,” Tsigas said, something she called “really disturbing.”

“It can mean the difference between life and death,” she added.

Preeclampsia affects 3 to 5 percent of expectant and new mothers in the U.S., up to 200,000 women a year, and it is responsible for 15 percent of premature births. No one knows what causes it, although the placenta is believed to play a role. As in Beyoncé’s case, the risk factors include having twins, being black and being over 35. But it can strike any woman, usually after the 20th week of pregnancy, and it can quickly become a crisis. Around the world, preeclampsia kills about five women every hour. At least 60 percent of preeclampsia deaths are preventable, and patient education is an important part of the solution, experts say.

In affluent countries, the condition is highly treatable. Yet in the U.S., preeclampsia accounts for 7.4 percent of maternal deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, killing more than 50 mothers a year — one reason the U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rate in the industrialized world. One of those women was Lauren Bloomstein, a neonatal intensive care nurse in New Jersey, whose 2011 death some 20 hours after giving birth was chronicled by ProPublica and NPR as part of our Lost Mothers project.

The greatest risk is to black mothers, who are more likely to enter pregnancy with chronic high blood pressure and to develop preeclampsia. They are more than twice as likely to die from the condition than white women, the CDC Foundation reported this year. Preeclampsia-related complications are the third-leading cause of maternal deaths among African-American women.

After reading reports about Beyoncé, ProPublica took a look at how top health sites discuss preeclampsia. We sent screenshots and links to Tsigas, one of the leading experts on the condition in the U.S., for review last week.

Virtually every site we asked her to look at contained some problematic language, Tsigas noted in her written comments. Her biggest area of concern: A number of sites flubbed how they explained postpartum preeclampsia — sometimes mentioning it only in passing, or sometimes failing to mention it entirely. In the case of the Mayo Clinic, the main overview article that had long been on the site had “no mention of postpartum anywhere,” Tsigas wrote. The Mayo Clinic site did discuss post-birth preeclampsia in a separate article, but it didn’t link to that information in its main overview, so it was easy to overlook.

Postpartum preeclampsia can be especially dangerous because the symptoms, including swelling, gastric problems and headaches, often mirror the discomforts of normal birth. Meanwhile, new moms are often too tired and overwhelmed to go to the doctor or the emergency room unless they are sure something is wrong. Accurate information about post-birth complications is essential, said Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist and co-director of the Columbia University Preterm Birth Prevention Center in New York, “because in that period, women might not have access to a provider, and they will look up their symptoms online.”

Tsigas also took issue with sites, including MedlinePlus and (until this weekend) the Mayo Clinic, for using a variation of this language: “The only cure for preeclampsia is delivery of your baby.” This idea that the condition goes away after delivery is long-outdated, but — as ProPublica and NPR’s reporting has shown — it continues to be all-too-prevalent among providers, including ER staff. The language may also reflect the concern among some medical professionals that if women don’t believe their condition is serious, they will resist delivering before their due date or by cesarean section — and put themselves and their babies at risk.

“There’s no question that delivery is often indicated, and sometimes quite urgently, to save the life of mother and/or baby,” Tsigas wrote. But, she added, “No provider should tell a patient that ‘the cure for preeclampsia is delivery.”’ Instead, she said, delivery should be seen as a “critical treatment” along with other measures, such as medication to reduce blood pressure and magnesium sulfate to prevent seizures and strokes. Describing delivery as a cure “lets everybody off the hook. Moms, their partners and even the providers all stop paying attention to mom’s health concerns after she delivers her baby. … We need to continue to monitor mom until her blood pressure and other vital signs return to normal.”

The Mayo Clinic updated its language over the weekend, saying it had “self-identified the need to refine its preeclampsia content” before ProPublica reached out last Thursday. “All content is reviewed by Mayo Clinic’s subject matter experts for medical accuracy, relevance and to ensure a Mayo Clinic-wide interpretation of the best-available evidence from sources such as U.S. federal agencies and guidelines,” Dr. Sandhya Pruthi, the Mayo Clinic website’s chief medical editor, wrote to us on Friday. “All health information is reviewed on a scheduled, rolling basis, and any critical developments (e.g., FDA pulls drug from market) are processed swiftly to ensure that the content is accurate and relevant.”

Before and After: Old Mayo Clinic Language

Left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to serious — even fatal — complications for both you and your baby. If you have preeclampsia, the only cure is delivery of your baby.

Updated Mayo Clinic Language

If you have preeclampsia, the only cure is delivery of your baby. Even after delivering the baby, it can still take a while for you to get better … Rarely, preeclampsia develops after delivery of a baby, a condition known as postpartum preeclampsia.

The Mayo Clinic also updated its language to note that black women have a higher risk of developing the condition. Two other respected sites, of the Cleveland Clinic and MedlinePlus, continue to omit this important fact. That doesn’t surprise Monica McLemore, an assistant professor of nursing at the University of California, San Francisco, who studies racial disparities in infant and maternal outcomes. “A lot of the sites are designed by people who don’t understand the importance of informing a variety of women about what their risks are,” she said.

Victoria Vinci, a Cleveland Clinic spokesperson, said its site would add the risk for black mothers in the next regular update. “Our standard for updating our page articles is every three to four years. This one is coming up on that mark.”

Incorrect information on MedlinePlus, which is published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, is especially problematic because it carries the government’s seal of approval. “Medline should be the gold standard,” McLemore said.

Yet the site’s main preeclampsia article “does not reflect the latest information,” Tsigas wrote. In addition to the already-noted problems, she cited the article’s suggestion that protein must be present in the urine for a preeclampsia diagnosis to be made. One of the mistakes providers often make is discounting spiking blood pressure and other symptoms because a protein test is inconclusive.

Nor, Tsigas said, is the information about treatment in line with current recommendations from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and other leading maternal health organizations. “The recommendations for bedrest and salt reduction aren’t really evidence-based,” Tsigas pointed out.

Medline Plus’ Language

Treatment The only way to cure preeclampsia is to deliver the baby. Most often, at 37 weeks, your baby is developed enough to be healthy outside the womb. As a result your provider may want your baby to be delivered so the preeclampsia does not get worse. You may get medicines to help trigger labor, or you may need a C-section. If your baby is not fully developed and you have mild preeclampsia, the disease can often be managed at home until your baby has matured. The provider will recommend: Bed rest, and lying on your left side most or all of the time

Drinking plenty of water

Eating less salt

Frequent doctor visits to make sure you and your baby are doing well

Medicines to lower your blood pressure (sometimes)

Medline’s article comes from a company called A.D.A.M., part of the Georgia-based health care services conglomerate Ebix Inc., which also provides content to other health sites. “You raise some important points, in particular about postpartum preeclampsia,” A.D.A.M.’s editorial director, Brenda Conaway, wrote in an email on Monday. “As it happens, this article” — last reviewed in May 2016 — “is currently in review as part of our editorial review process. I will be talking with the senior medical editor and our medical director about the article today, and we will update it to reflect any needed changes.”

When reached by ProPublica, Harvard Health Publishing also agreed to make revisions. The problems with its preeclampsia write-up extend beyond the initial assertion that preeclampsia only occurs in pregnancy, Tsigas said. By focusing on eclampsia — seizures — as the main danger to mothers, it ignores the immediate risk of strokes caused by high blood pressure. Women with preeclampsia also have a much higher risk of heart attacks and strokes later in life.

The site’s chief medical editor, Dr. Howard LeWine, said the current language that the condition “occurs only during pregnancy” would be quickly revised. He said the wording is “technically correct” — preeclampsia only occurs in women who’ve recently been pregnant, and even postpartum preeclampsia is believed to originate during pregnancy. But, he acknowledged, “it gives the wrong impression. It’s misguiding people and will get changed.”

Thai official says cave boys may have to dive despite danger

A top Thai official said Tuesday that heavy rains forecast for the coming days could worsen floods in a mountain cave, forcing authorities to speed up their extraction of the 12 boys and the soccer coach who are trapped there.

Officials early said the 13 are mostly in stable medical condition and have received high-protein liquid food after they were located late Monday night in the cave in northern Chiang Rai province during a desperate search that drew international help and captivated the nation.

Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda said Tuesday that the boys may need to swim out using diving equipment ahead of bad weather forecast for later in the week. He said the boys would be brought out via the same complicated route through which their rescuers entered.

While efforts are to pump out the floodwaters continue, Anupong said it’s clear some areas cannot be drained and in order to get out, the boys may need to use diving gear while being guided by two professional divers each. He conceded that if something went awry, it could be disastrous.

“Diving is not easy. For people who have never done it, it will be difficult, unlike diving in a swimming pool, because the cave’s features have small channels,” he said. “If something happens mid-way it could be life-threatening.”

Raw video shows rescuers discovering all 12 boys and their soccer coach alive deep inside a partially flooded cave in northern Thailand late Monday, more than a week after they disappeared.

Video released early Tuesday by the Thai navy showed the boys in their soccer uniforms sitting on a dry area inside the cave above the water as a spotlight from a rescuer illuminated their faces.

Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said the health of the boys and coach were checked using a field assessment in which red is critical condition, yellow is serious and green is stable.

“We found that most of the boys are in green condition,” he said. “Maybe some of the boys have injuries or light injuries and would be categorized as yellow condition. But no one is in red condition.”

Cave rescue experts have said it could be safer to simply supply them where they are for now, rather than attempting to have the boys dive out. That could take as long as months, however, given that Thailand’s rainy season typically lasts through October.

US economic advisor Larry Kudlow in good condition following heart attack, White House says

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow, an important voice in U.S. trade policy, suffered a heart attack and is in good condition at Walter Reed Medical Center.

“Earlier today National Economic Council Director and Assistant to the President Larry Kudlow, experienced what his doctors say was a very mild heart attack,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Monday evening.

“Larry is currently in good condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and his doctors expect he will make a full and speedy recovery. The President and his Administration send their thoughts and prayers to Larry and his family,” she said.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted the news earlier on Monday evening ET, literally only minutes before a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un:

Kudlow, a former CNBC contributor and Wall Street economist, has played a leading role in crafting policy toward America’s major trade partners, including China.

Just last weekend, Kudlow accused Canada of directing “polarizing” comments toward the United States following a fractious G-7 meeting of advanced economies. The conclave in Quebec pitted the United States against most of its traditional allies, which are trying to head off a full-blown trade war.

“Here’s the thing,” he told CNN, speaking of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “He really kind of stabbed us in the back.”

But personal health concerns for Kudlow are unlikely to alter ongoing talks between the United States its global commerce partners, said Vishnu Varathan, head of economics and strategy at Mizuho Bank.

“I probably would venture to answer that it wouldn’t materially affect anything around the trade talks,” Varathan said. The U.S. is negotiating trade disagreements with the European Union, China and NAFTA partners including Mexico, among others.

“A lot of the trade thoughts and the trade motivations were formed long before Larry Kudlow joined the team,” Varathan said. “They were already formed. You’ve got people like (trade advisor) Peter Navarro and all — hawkish views on trade.”

Deutsche Bank US operations designated to be in 'troubled condition' by the Fed: DJ, citing sources

The Federal Reserve has designated Deutsche Bank’s U.S. business as being in “troubled condition,” The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The downgrade to one of the lowest designations occurred about a year ago and has not been previously reported, the report said.

The Financial Times also reported Thursday, citing a source, that Deutsche Bank’s U.S. subsidiary was added to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s list of “problem banks,” or those with weaknesses that threaten their financial survival.

Deutsche Bank shares briefly fell more than 8.5 percent in U.S. trading. As of Wednesday’s close, the stock is down 39 percent this year.

“As a matter of policy, we do not comment on specific regulatory feedback,” a Deutsche Bank spokesperson said in a statement. “The ultimate parent of the Deutsche Bank Group, Deutsche Bank AG, is very well capitalized and has significant liquidity reserves.”

The spokesperson also said its principal U.S. banking subsidiary “has a very robust balance sheet.”

A FDIC spokesperson said the agency does not comment on open and operating institutions. The Federal Reserve declined to comment, saying bank ratings are confidential.

The Frankfurt-based bank has struggled in the last few years. It has reported three straight years of losses, and in April switched its CEO for the fourth time in six years. Last week, reports said Deutsche Bank will “sharply” reduce its U.S. presence as it cuts back on global equities trading. At the time, the bank declined CNBC’s request for comment.

Artificial intelligence could help diagnose a deadly heart condition

Artificial intelligence could help diagnose a deadly heart condition

It was a typical Saturday morning.

Angela Watschke was shuffling some of her kids around four years ago while the others were at home. Her then-2-year-old daughter, Abrielle, was lying on the bed when she started slipping off as her eyes rolled back. The toddler was experiencing cardiac arrest.

One of Watschke’s daughters texted her asking for help. The color faded from Abrielle as her father performed CPR and called 911. When Watschke arrived home, she found her street filled with ambulances and paramedics. She and her husband clung to each other until finally, someone said Abrielle was breathing on her own.

The hospital wasn’t sure what to do with the toddler. They sent Abrielle to another emergency room nearby, where doctors informed Watschke her daughter had a heart condition called long QT syndrome.

“I had no idea a normal, healthy 2-year-old in literally one moment to the next could go from perfectly fine to heart stop,” said Watschke, who lives near Minneapolis.

Named for the abnormal electrical wave patterns that characterize it, LQTS causes dangerously fast irregular heartbeats in response to stress and exercise, according to the National Institutes of Health. Many people don’t know they have it until it causes them to faint or have seizures.

Artificial intelligence could change that.

AliveCor, a medical device start-up, and Mayo Clinic used artificial intelligence to identify LQTS in patients whose EKG results appear normal. Their findings from a study, published in an abstract Thursday at the Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions conference, found the technology accurately diagnoses the genetic condition 79 percent of the time.

It could one day help doctors diagnose the condition earlier and more accurately than they currently can. It could also help consumers access tests more easily than they can now.

“I will submit that when the QT interval is caught in our patients early. This will be a life-saving modifier that we will have come upon,” said Dr. Michael Ackerman, Abrielle’s doctor and director of Mayo Clinic’s Genetic Heart Rhythm Clinic and the Windland Smith Rice Sudden Death Genomics Laboratory.

HHS secretary back in hospital for bowel condition

A spokeswoman says U.S. health secretary Alex Azar is back in the hospital for additional treatment and observation. He’s been diagnosed with a painful bowel condition called diverticulitis.

Health and Human Services Department spokeswoman Caitlin Oakley says Azar “remains fully engaged with the responsibilities of his job” and is in regular contact with his leadership team. Azar has been putting the finishing touches on a package of measures to reduce prescription drug costs, expected to be announced within weeks.

Diverticulitis is an inflammation or infection of small pouches that bulge outward through the colon. Such pouches — called diverticula — are common among older adults. They often don’t produce any symptoms unless they become inflamed or infected. Azar is 50.

He was first hospitalized over the weekend.
