Sin City: How Newport Earned A Reputation As America's Playground

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:00:05 +0000

What happens in Vegas started in Newport, Kentucky. The city was known as "America's Playground" from the 1920's to the 1960's, a hotbed for a criminal underworld of casinos, brothels and mobsters. The Sin City of the south didn't last forever. With reform movements, the election of a new sheriff and an FBI raid ordered by U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, Newport began to clean up its act.

Patch Could Replace Opioids To Relieve Pain

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 10:00:00 +0000

More than a year ago, 80-year old Helen Douglass described her shoulder and forearm pain following a stroke as nine out of 10. Last summer the Cleveland-area resident participated in a clinical trial for SPRINT, a small wearable stimulator patch and has no pain now. Her story is one of many SPR Therapeutics points to and the Ohio company is now marketing the FDA approved portable device that delivers neuro-stimulation to the nerve causing the pain. CEO Maria Bennett says SPRINT is somewhere between TENS and a fully implantable stimulation device. Some medical scientists believe the patch could become a substitute for opioid abuse.
