Veteran waits three years for VA to approve abdomen surgery | News

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) — Veteran Michael Phelan says for the last three years he’s been living with a medical condition that makes him look like a pregnant woman. He also says the VA would not perform the necessary surgery to correct the issue, but all that changed when CBS46 got involved. “It doesn’t make it completely go away but it holds it in quite a bit,” said Phelan as he showed CBS46 reporter Bobeth Yates how he wraps an abdominal binder around his stomach. “For a lack of a better phrase it looks like I’m pregnant. I have to wear an abdominal binder just to keep my stomach in because it’s so distended. It sticks out so much,” Phelan continued. Phelan says this all started three-and-a half years ago when he was diagnosed with stage one colon cancer. “I had surgery to remove that cancer, but after the surgery my whole abdominal wall kinda let go and I needed surgery to correct that”. But Phelan is diabetic and he says the VA refused to schedule the corrective surgery because his blood work showed one of his glucose levels was slightly above normal. “The VA said my A1C needed to be right at 7 or below 7 to have corrective surgery and my A1C was at 7 at the time, b...

New Year Brings New Opportunities | News, Sports, Jobs

As I pen this week’s column, the tractor has cooled off from pushing snow around, day temperatures are in the 40s and Christmas is here. With the 2019 deer season finally coming to a close, many take this time over the holidays to sit back and reflect. Heck reflect, I haven’t finished putting my gear up yet. Either way, the holiday season is a time to spend with friends and family, trade stories, take a break and begin to look toward the next season. Unless, like some of us, you are still chasing birds around. A new calendar year brings one thing many look forward to each year — sportsmen show season. Whether you are looking to expand your gun collection, find a new piece of clothing or gear or finally take that hunt of a lifetime, show season gives us all the opportunity to see what is out there. Back in the day I would head off the week after New Year’s to start the show circuit and be back sometime before Easter. It sounds exciting, but after more than 20 years on the road doing shows I’m able to pick and choose the ones I personally attend now and have Pro-Staff doing ones closest to them. Show season kicks off with the Archery Trade Association annual show in Indianapolis o...

Shipping containers have been used for everything from urban farms to off-the-grid getaways and all-in-one pools.

Shipping containers have been used for everything from urban farms to off-the-grid getaways and all-in-one pools. Made from the thousands of surplus containers that sit on docks around the world, these homes can be an eco-friendly alternative to traditional building materials. Shipping container diehards also love their durability and, in some cases, their portability—although this can cost a lot of time and money. And while there are plenty of DIY plans out there, it can be hard to devote the time to transforming a utilitarian box of steel into a cozy abode. Luckily, several companies sell shipping container homes—one is even available on Amazon—that can be delivered and assembled in as little as 10 weeks. Containers typically come in two sizes, either 20 feet by 8 feet or 40 feet by 8 feet. The smaller of the two equals about 160 square feet of living space, but the larger container gets you 320 square feet. That’s tiny home living at its smallest, so some manufacturers will also combine containers to create bigger models. To help you figure out which one is the perfect design for you, here are five shipping container homes you can order right this second. Key features: Altern...

Gear-obsessed editors choose every product we review. We may earn money if you buy from a link. How we test gear. Cross-training is a valuable and often neglected component of endurance training. Recent studies show that regular cross-training—a plyo circuit, a bootcamp-style workout class, or even some boulder hopping—yields real results on race day. If you’re considering adding some variety to your routine, or if your schedule already includes cross-training, you should be wearing shoes that can withstand the stress and protect you from injury. For most, that means swapping your running shoes for trainers with more support. Consider a 2017 study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology that showed introducing well-trained ultramarathon runners to explosive plyometric workouts for just 12 weeks was enough to see a 4 percent increase in running economy. In other words, the runners showed a 4 percent decrease in the amount of energy and oxygen required to maintain race pace. Cross-training works because running the same miles for months is monotonous for our legs. Our muscles adapt to the work, become more adept at managing stress, and, because they’re never pushe...

On a foggy February morning in Oxford, England, I arrived at the John Radcliffe Hospital, a

On a foggy February morning in Oxford, England, I arrived at the John Radcliffe Hospital, a shiplike nineteen-seventies complex moored on a hill east of the city center, for the express purpose of being hurt. I had an appointment with a scientist named Irene Tracey, a brisk woman in her early fifties who directs Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences and has become known as the Queen of Pain. “We might have a problem with you being a ginger,” she warned when we met. Redheads typically perceive pain differently from those with other hair colors; many also flinch at the use of the G-word. “I’m sorry, a lovely auburn,” she quickly said, while a doctoral student used a ruler and a purple Sharpie to draw the outline of a one-inch square on my right shin. Wearing thick rubber gloves, the student squeezed a dollop of pale-orange cream into the center of the square and delicately spread it to the edges, as if frosting a cake. The cream contained capsaicin, the chemical responsible for the burn of chili peppers. “We love capsaicin,” Tracey said. “It does two really nice things: it ramps up gradually to become quite intense, and it activates receptors in your sk...

GP announces plans to upgrade, invest $70 million in Gurdon plywood, lumber mill

Three months after shuttering south Arkansas plants in Crossett and Hope, paper goods giant Georgia-Pacific (GP) will invest up to $70 million to upgrade its plywood and lumber operations in Gurdon to help sustain the more than 700 local jobs at the company’s facilities in Clark County. “We are making state-of-the-art improvements that will transform our Gurdon facilities, greatly improving the utilization of raw materials and overall operating efficiencies, making jobs more meaningful, and turning us into an even stronger competitor,” said Mike White, the company’s western regional operations manager. Company officials said the list of capital improvements will be significant, highlighted by the installation of an advanced packaging system; new panel assembly stations with state-of-the-art scanners; an upgraded power plant; and software and security enhancements. Work on the projects began earlier this summer and will be completed in 2020. “This investment is validation of the work, commitment, and loyalty of our employees and the support Gurdon and Clark County have demonstrated for years,” said White, who started as an electrician at the plant when it was built in 1979. “And...

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 for business (15-inch, Intel) review

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 3 for Business packs faster performance and longer battery life than its AMD-powered sibling. Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 3 for Business, powered by 10th Gen Intel processors, fixes almost every criticism we had with the AMD model. Not only does it provide faster performance, but the enterprise model lasts for 1.5 hours longer on a charge. You get all those benefits without giving up the Surface Laptop 3′s slim, aluminum design and gorgeous 15-inch display. Despite being branded as one, this Intel-powered Surface Laptop 3 doesn’t feel like a business laptop. Regardless, the Surface Laptop 3 is one of the best 15-inch laptops on the market.  The Intel version of the Surface Laptop 3, or the Surface Laptop 3 for Business, starts at $1,299 for a base model equipped with a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. That’s not enough storage for most people so we recommend spending $1,399 for the 256GB SSD model. That storage bump normally costs $300 but an ongoing $200 off discount spares customers of Microsoft’s overpriced upgrade.   Our $1,599 (retail price is $1,799) review unit packs a Core i7-1065G7 CPU, 16GB of RAM an...
