Here is a video about expanding the window for transplanting hearts. Quite interesting and just one more step forward in transplantation.
Just an FYI for anyone who is still receiving social security checks in the mail. ---------------------------------------------------------
Social Security deadline arrives for switching to direct deposit
For millions of seniors getting a monthly Social Security check in the mail, time's up.
Today (March 1) is the U.S. Treasury's mandatory deadline for switching over to electronic payments for Social Security and other federal benefits.
That means, unless you're over age 90, the days of a monthly paper check in the mail are coming to an end.
"We are getting lots of calls. People are resigned that they need to switch and they're calling to do so," said Walt Henderson, director of the U.S. Treasury's Go Direct program.
This week, he said, Go Direct's call center has been getting up to 45,000 calls a day.
Since the mandatory switch was announced in April 2011, millions of seniors – some reluctantly – have been signing up for electronic payments, either directly deposited into a bank account or onto a Direct Expressdebit card.
About 94.3 percent of all Social Security and SSI recipients are getting paperless payments, according to Henderson. As of this week, that still leaves roughly 4.25 million seniors who haven't signed up but Henderson said he's hopeful of getting "close to 100 percent" compliance.
"All we're doing is changing the delivery," said Henderson. "We're not requiring you to get on the Internet or buy a computer. We're putting an electronic deposit into your bank account. Beyond that, we're not changing anything."
Anyone who turned 90 as of May 1, 2011, isn't required to sign up for electronic payments.

I like the new look very much!
Did you notice the new look on Transplant Friends? I just had an interior designer come over my house- LOL
In this afternoons news they finally mentioned for tx pts to be extra careful after 6/7pm with the mosquitos. If you're having flu like symptoms to get tested right away. I was outside watering around 6:45pm and I thought I saw a mosq. buzzing around OH NO, I threw the hose and turned it off and went inside. :)
