- Bald eagle threat: Lead ammo left behind by hunters
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.
- New York eyes 'textalyzer' to bust drivers using phones
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Police in New York state may soon have a high-tech way of catching texting drivers: a device known as a "textalyzer" that allows an officer to quickly check if a phone has been in use before a crash."Despite laws to ban cellphone use while driving, some motorists still continue to insist on texting behind the wheel — placing themselves and others at substantial risk," Cuomo said in a statement first reported by The Associated Press.Digital privacy and civil liberties groups already have questioned whether the technology's use would violate personal privacy, noting that police can already obtain search warrants if they believe information on a private phone could be useful in a prosecution.Many security experts are skeptical when it comes to promises that the textalyzer would only access information about phone usage, and not personal material, according to Rainey Reitman, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit organization that advocates for civil liberties when it comes to digital technology.The committee will hear from supporters and opponents of the technology, law enforcement officials and legal experts before issuing a report, Cuomo's office said.

- It’s official: You’ll soon be able to buy hearing aids over the counter
By Sean Captain - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
In stark contrast to last week, the U.S. Senate voted 88-1 today to actually approve a healthcare-related bill. The FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017 funds the Food and Drug Administration for the next five years and incorporates several smaller bills, including the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017. Already passed by the House of Representatives, the law will allow people with hearing difficulties to purchase a hearing aid almost as easily as they can buy any other set of wired or wireless headphones—without first visiting a doctor.
Currently, only companies certified as medical device makers are allowed to sell hearing aids, although consumer companies such as Bose, Doppler Labs, and Etymotic Research have been selling devices that incorporate hearing assistance into wireless headphones or earbuds. The legislation passed today (and virtually guaranteed to be signed by the president) will make it much easier for those companies to market their products as actual hearing aids, which consumers can buy without getting a medical exam or prescription.
That doesn’t mean any hearing aid maker can hang a shingle. The FDA will first set performance and safety guidelines. The process could take up to three years, but will probably go much faster, as it was already under way in anticipation of the legislation. One of the most important requirements will be providing apps or other simple tools that allow people, without the help of a doctor, to customize the devices to the specific amount of amplification, in the specific frequencies, that each ear requires.
- Lawmaker seeks probe after AP reveals maggots in NY facility
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Saturday Aug 12, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation into New York state's care for the disabled following a recent Associated Press story that revealed the case of a man infested with maggots in a state-run group home.Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, of Utica, told the AP on Saturday that he is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the group home and other state-regulated facilities for the disabled where there have been allegations of abuse and neglect.A copy of the report was obtained by The Associated Press, which found that New York state is not alone in making it difficult for members of the public to access records about allegations of abuse and neglect in state-regulated facilities for the disabled.
