  • Court tosses $300,000 hospital bill for promised $1,300 tab

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado’s Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a woman who expected to pay about $1,300 for spinal fusion surgery but was billed more than $300,000 by a suburban Denver hospital that included charges it never disclosed she might be liable for. This week’s ruling in favor of Lisa French, who underwent two surgeries in 2014, follows efforts by many U.S. states and the federal government to help curb health care costs by restricting or eliminating so-called “surprise billing ” and requiring increased price transparency for consumers. In a unanimous opinion, the Colorado justices ruled Monday that...

    Maryland lawmakers advanced a bill Monday that would prohibit stores from providing plastic bags to customers starting July 2022. An iteration of this legislation passed the House and was voted out of the Senate Finance Committee last year, but it did not reach the Senate floor due to the abbreviated legislative session. With an amendment from Del. Brian Crosby (D-St. Mary’s) that would allow orchard farmers to provide plastic bags to customers for its fruits and vegetables, the Plastic Bag Reduction Act, sponsored by Del. Brooke Lierman (D-Baltimore City) and Sen. Malcom Augustine (D-Prince George’s), moved out of the House...

    The curator of parliament's art collection said that artefacts in Westminster are being reevaluated, as many statues and paintings have a 'racist history' and were bought with wealth from the slave trade. The Palace of Westminster lobbies, which are open to the public, are lined with artwork featuring 18th and 19th Century politicians, many of whom were connected to the slave trade. Melissa Hamnett, the head of heritage collections and curator of works of art, said officials are looking at the collection in light of the Black Lives Matter movement.

While golden retrievers are consistently among the top three most beloved dog breeds in America (Labrador retrievers have been No. 1, followed by German shepherds for the past several years), the friendly canines...

    Theresa May taunted Jeremy Corbyn that he had 'failed' today after the Tories held key London seats in local elections and made gains in other parts of the country. In the biggest test of public opinion since the general election, Labour's efforts to wrest the strongholds of Westminster, Wandsworth and Barnet from the Tories fell flat. In Barnet, where Labour needed just one seat to secure control, the Tories entrenched their position - with defeated councillors launching a furious attack on Mr Corbyn for failing to get a grip on the anti-Semitism crisis. Labour also came up short in crucial...

    As Rumor, a German shepherd, took long, elegant strides around the ring at the 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, she seemed to cover every inch of the green carpet. It was as if there were no other dogs in the room, and soon that was indeed true as Rumor stood alone, earning best-in-show honors on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. “The German shepherd standard talks about quality and nobility,” said Thomas Bradley, the best-in-show judge. “She is just magnificent.” Last year, Rumor, named after the Adele song “Rumor Has It,” was favored to win it all, but she...
