Health - The New York Civil Liberties released a report today claiming there are flaws in the privacy protections in the state’s networks for sharing medical records.  New York’s system allows hospitals and doctors to upload patient information into regional databases without the consent of the patient.  The other main problem is the all-or-nothing approach New York uses.  Once consent is given, a doctor can see every bit of medical history including sensitive records.

Syracuse - Another possible scandal is unraveling on the campus of Syracuse University.  Apparently, there have possible violations of the school’s internal drug policy.  An NCAA inquiry has begun, however; Kevin Quinn, a senior vice president for public affairs says the inquiry does not involve any current student-athletes.  Allegedly, at least 10 players since 2001 have tested positive for a banned recreational substance or substances.
