They look like fettuccine come to life — little flatworms that glide along riverbeds and perform miracles. Chop off their tails, they grow them back. Split them in half, they grow whole again. But chop off their heads, and not only do they grow new heads, but those new heads contain old memories! Whoa!
The retired Formula One race car driver suffered a severe head injury Sunday while skiing in France. Doctors say Schumacher suffered bruising throughout his brain. They can't yet predict whether he will recover, but they're more optimistic. He's had a second surgery.
ANCHORAGE — Too few Alaskans are getting an annual flu shot, doctors say, with some patients claiming they are too healthy to need a vaccination and others saying the side effects scare them away.
“Every year you get hundreds of thousands of people in the United States alone who are hospitalized as a result of influenza infection,” said Dr. Joe McLaughlin, Alaska state epidemiologist. “You don’t get that with the common cold.”
This week, Alaska state health officials began tracking adults who die from the flu, KTUU-TV reported.
FAIRBANKS — Just a few minutes after the “open” sign lit up Thursday at Outlaw Tamales, owner Cylle Pompa was already worried that supplies were running low.
A car had just pulled up and ordered four-dozen pork tamales from the tiny North Pole food hut. A few minutes later, another vehicle arrived to put a dent in the chicken tamale reserve. Eight-dozen more tamales had been pre-ordered and were waiting for pick-up.
Reported cases of influenza in Juneau have quadrupled in the last week, says a nurse at Bartlett Regional Hospital.
Kim Vermedal, a registered nurse and the hospital’s infection prevention specialist, said that this year’s flu season started a little later than usual.
“It’s not too late to get vaccinated,” Vermedal said. “We don’t know how long this season is going to last, but it could last into March.”
FAIRBANKS — This has been a lower-than-expected year for the aurora borealis, though it’s not yet clear what impact, if any, that might have on tourists that visit the Fairbanks area to see the northern lights.
Fairbanks had received coverage in major trade publications, including The Lonely Planet and National Geographic, advising readers that this would be a good year to see the aurora.
John Binder was named deputy commissioner of the Alaska Department of Transportation Monday.
“John brings to the department proven leadership and management from his time with the Air Force. He has a wealth of aviation education and experience and strong Alaskan roots,” DOT Commissioner Pat Kemp said in a statement.
Binder will be responsible for overseeing the State of Alaska international airport system and the Division of Statewide Aviation, which includes 252 state-owned rural airports.
JUNEAU — Several new laws are taking effect in Alaska with the new year, the biggest of which centers on the state’s oil production tax.
The oil-tax cut pushed by Gov. Sean Parnell and passed by lawmakers in April was the biggest legislative story of 2013 and could be one of the biggest political stories of the coming year. The tax cut is the subject of a referendum, and voters will decide in August whether to keep or repeal it.
LAS VEGAS — Six states were named Monday by federal officials to develop test sites for drones — a critical next step for the burgeoning industry that could one day produce thousands of unmanned aircraft for use by businesses, farmers and researchers.
Alaska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Texas and Virginia will host the research sites, providing diverse climates, geography and air traffic environments as the Federal Aviation Administration seeks to safely introduce commercial drones into U.S. airspace.
