IMPORTANCE Detailed, nationally representative data describing high-risk populations and circumstances involved in insulin-related hypoglycemia and errors (IHEs) can inform approaches to individualizing glycemic targets. OBJECTIVE To describe the US burden, rates, and characteristics of emergency department (ED) visits and emergency hospitalizations for IHEs. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Nationally representative public health surveillance of adverse drug events among insulin-treated patients seeking ED care (National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance project) and a national household survey of insulin use (the National Health Interview Survey) were used to obtain data from January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2011. MAIN OUTCOMES AND MEASURES Estimated annual numbers and estimated annual rates of ED visits and hospitalizations for IHEs among insulin-treated patients with diabetes mellitus. RESULTS Based on 8100 National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance cases, an estimated 97 648 (95%CI, 64 410-130 887) ED visits for IHEs occurred annually; almost one-third (29.3%; 95%CI, 21.8%-36.8%) resulted in hospitalization. Severe neurologic sequelae were documented in an estimated 60.6%(95% CI, 51.3%-69.9%) of ED visits for IHEs, and blood glucose levels of 50 mg/dL (to convert to millimoles per liter, multiply by 0.0555) or less were recorded in more than half of cases (53.4%). Insulin-treated patients 80 years or older were more than twice as likely to visit the ED (rate ratio, 2.5; 95%CI, 1.5-4.3) and nearly 5 times as likely to be subsequently hospitalized (rate ratio, 4.9; 95%CI, 2.6-9.1) for IHEs than those 45 to 64 years. The most commonly identified IHE precipitants were reduced food intake and administration of the wrong insulin product. CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE Rates of ED visits and subsequent hospitalizations for IHEs were highest in patients 80 years or older; the risks of hypoglycemic sequelae in this age group should be considered in decisions to prescribe and intensify insulin. Meal-planning misadventures and insulin product mix-ups are important targets for hypoglycemia prevention efforts. © 2014 American Medical Association. All rights reserved.

Does collaborative modeling improve water resource management outcomes? How does collaborative modeling improve these outcomes? Does it always work? Under what conditions is collaborative modeling most appropriate? With support from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Institute for Water Resources (IWR), researchers developed an evaluation framework to help address these questions. The framework links the effects of collaborative modeling on decision-making processes with improvements in the extent to which resource management decisions, practices, and policies balance societal needs. Both practitioners' and participants' experiences suggest that under the right circumstances, collaborative modeling can generate these beneficial outcomes. Researchers developed performance measures and a survey to systematically capture these experiences and evaluate the outcomes of collaborative modeling processes. The survey can provide immediate feedback during a project to determine whether collaborative modeling is having the desired effect and whether course correction is warranted. Over the longer term, the systematic evaluation of collaborative modeling processes will help demonstrate in what ways and under what circumstances collaborative modeling is effective, inform and improve best practices, and raise awareness among water resource planners regarding the use of collaborative modeling for resource management decisions. © 2013 American Water Resources Association.


FALLS CHURCH, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved proceeding with the previously announced separation of its U.S. public sector business under a new name, CSRA Inc., as well as the declaration of a special cash distribution of $10.50 in the aggregate per CSC share (the “Special Dividend”). The separation will occur through a one-for-one pro rata distribution of all CSRA shares to CSC stockholders. Following its separation from CSC, CSRA is expected to complete its previously announced combination with SRA International (SRA) on November 30, 2015, subject to satisfaction of the conditions to the merger. The new company will officially change its name to CSRA Inc. upon completion of the combination. “The vision we outlined in May – creating two pure-play leaders in the commercial and public sector markets – is becoming a reality,” said Mike Lawrie, president and CEO of CSC. “Today’s announcement marks another important milestone towards the completion of our business separation and the establishment of CSRA, a new leader in U.S. public sector IT services.” Subject to satisfaction of applicable conditions, the distribution of shares of common stock of CSRA is expected to occur on November 27, 2015, after the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and the payment of the Special Dividend is expected to occur on November 30, 2015. The NYSE is scheduled to close at 1 p.m. ET on November 27, 2015. In the distribution, CSC stockholders will receive one share of CSRA common stock for each share of CSC common stock held on November 18, 2015, the record date for the distribution. Following the distribution of CSRA shares, CSC and CSRA each will pay concurrent special cash dividends which, in the aggregate will total $10.50 per share. Of that $10.50 per share dividend, $2.25 will be paid by CSC and $8.25 will be paid by CSRA. Payment of each portion of the Special Dividend will be made to holders of CSC common stock on the record date who receive shares of CSRA common stock in the distribution. The combination with SRA remains on track for completion on November 30, 2015 subject to satisfaction of the conditions to the merger. In connection with the completion of the merger, the common stock of SRA will be automatically converted into the right to receive $390 million in cash and CSRA common stock constituting approximately 15.32 percent of CSRA’s outstanding common stock. No portion of the Special Dividend will be payable on CSRA shares issued in the SRA merger. Both CSC and CSRA will be listed on the NYSE. CSC common stock will continue to trade under the ticker symbol “CSC.” Shares of CSRA common stock will begin trading under the symbol “CSRA.” Beginning on or about November 16, 2015 and continuing up to and through the distribution date, it is expected that there will be two markets in CSC common stock. Shares that trade in the “regular-way” market will be entitled to receive both the shares of CSRA common stock and the Special Dividend; shares that trade in the “ex-distribution” market will trade without the entitlements to shares of CSRA common stock or the Special Dividend. Shares of CSC in the “ex-distribution” market will trade under the ticker symbol “CSC WI.” CSRA anticipates that “when-issued” trading will begin on or about November 16, 2015, and will continue up to and through the distribution date. Shares of CSRA in the “when-issued” market will trade under the symbol “CSRA.WI.” Subject to satisfaction of relevant conditions, “regular-way” trading in CSRA’s common stock is expected to begin on November 30, 2015, the first trading day following completion of the separation. CSC shareholders who hold common stock on the record date and decide to sell any of their common stock before November 30, 2015 should consult with their stockbroker, bank or other nominee to understand whether the shares of CSC common stock will be sold with or without the entitlements to CSRA common stock or the Special Dividend. No action or payment is required by CSC shareholders to receive the shares of CSRA common stock or the Special Dividend. An Information Statement containing details regarding the distribution of the CSRA common stock, the Special Dividend and CSRA’s business and management following the separation and the merger with SRA will be available to CSC stockholders prior to the distribution date. The distribution of shares of common stock of CSRA is expected to be tax-free to CSC stockholders for U.S. Federal income tax purposes, however the Special Dividend is not expected to be tax-free to CSC stockholders. CSC stockholders are urged to consult their tax advisors with respect to U.S. federal, state, local and non-U.S. tax consequences of the distribution and the Special Dividend. The transfer agent and registrar for the CSRA common stock will be ComputerShare Trust Company, N.A.

NEWS ANALYSIS: Government regulators quietly gathered aircraft makers and airline executives to start working on ways to keep hackers from compromising flight management systems. The Federal Aviation Administration has decided the time has come to take a close look at the security of its data systems. These systems, which include networks that help the agency run the air traffic control system, send radar images to flight controllers and control connections to the radios that keep flight controllers in touch with pilots in the air. The FAA has convened a committee of aircraft manufacturers, airline executives and pilots to look into ways to boost the security of these critical systems. The concern about data security is a fairly new thing for the aviation business. While airlines and aircraft manufacturers have the same exposure to hackers, malware and nation state spies as any other business, until recently little thought had been given to the data systems that support airline flight systems. But that was before things started to break. In April, American Airlines grounded several flights because their onboard flight planning software crashed as flights were leaving the gate in a number of cities.Some flights were cancelled and others were delayed. Social media lit up with word that the iPads that pilots were using for flight planning and terminal navigation had crashed and the software they were using had stopped working.As it turned out, the problem with the airline's iPads wasn’t due to hackers or malware, but rather a bug in the mapping program provided by Jeppesen , an aviation and marine navigation software company owned by Boeing. The problem was fixed in a few days when the software was updated. In the meantime, the airline's pilots flew using paper charts, just as they'd learned to do in flight school. However, the American Airlines flight groundings demonstrated clearly just how vulnerable aviation safety might be if something even more serious goes wrong. The potential vulnerability was underscored when the FCC admitted that the agency had been penetrated by a cyber-attack shortly before that and was hiring one of its existing consultants, SRA International of Fairfax, Va. on a sole-source contract to help deal with it. If you don't recall hearing any news about an FAA cyber-attack, that's because the FAA, unlike most businesses, isn't required to disclose such attacks. But because it's a government agency, it still has to make its procurement actions public and that's how the information came to light. Fortunately, Washington is overrun with journalists who scour obscure reports for such things and it was Nextgov.com , which is part of Government Executive magazine that published the first reports about the cyber-attack that hit the FAA. The attack on the FAA is actually part of a much bigger and more difficult problem. How will the airline industry secure the global web of networks that aviation authorities use to provide data and flight clearances to planes, to update flight plans, and that pilots use to send flight plans and other data to the FAA and to their employers. Those networks, which have slowly evolved since they were first put in place in the 1960s, basically just grew. At first, they were never part of any overall plan.

ZTE has found a way to sell to U.S. agencies by collaborating with a local company, which is raising concerns from security officials and a lawmaker over spying. According to Bloomberg on Monday, the telecoms equipment manufacturer has linked with Baltimore-based Prescient, a unit of cybersecurity company CyberPoint International, to make its videoconferencing system available to federal offices. The videoconferencing system, which carries both ZTE's and Prescient's names, was approved in November by the U.S. General Services Administration for sale to federal agencies. Prescient also said it assessed the device, documented its flaws and installed a U.S.-built hardware- and software-based firewall to block potential unauthorized access. Jerry Caponera, general manager for global partnerships at Cyberpoint explained in the report, China is where most manufacturing is done, and people will purchase their products either way. "They said they wanted to sell products in the U.S., and we said we could help with that," Caponera said. "We said if your goal is anything else, we can’t help." Engineers at Prescient also spent six to nine months assessing ZTE’s videoconferencing system for spyware and defects, creating software and hardware to help protect the device from any intrusions, he said. ZTE had also approached Prescient in 2011 and asked for help to improve its U.S. sales, but at that time, prescient had bee exploring developing a niche market in securing overseas-made technology, making it more attractive to U.S. buyers, Caponera said. The move comes after a U.S. House Intelligence Committee asked federal agencies and contractors last October to boycott ZTE and Huawei products because it may help China spy on the country . Both companies however, have denied links to espionage , stating they are not controlled by the Chinese governmen According to Stewart Baker, a former assistant secretary for policy at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, it is difficult to counter deliberate compromises of technology equipment. "At first blush, though, it makes me profoundly uneasy," Baker, currently a partner at law firm Steptoe & Johnson, said. Ray Mota, founder of U.S. networking equipment industry consulting ACG, also noted the partnership with prescient may be a way for ZTE to work around Congress's warnings. The U.S. market for networking equipment has been largely closed since the House committee report advised contractors and agencies to avoid ZTE and Huawei, he explained. "Some people have backed off both companies after that report. This is an opportunity for ZTE to open up the door and break down some barriers. Some people will say, 'Oh yeah, we'll use a ZTE product if this other American company says it's secure and certifies it'. They see this as an avenue to get back in here," Mota said. When approached by the newswire, Nina Zhou, a ZTE spokesperson did not reply to questions on the vendor's work with CyberPoint's Prescient. "ZTE shares a global interest in promoting, not undermining cybersecurity," Zhou said.
