CRE outbreak
Two patients died at the Ronald Reagan
UCLA Medical Center in a superbug CRE
outbreak, caused by two medical scopes
that still carried the bacteria even after they
were disinfected. In addition to the two
victims, seven hospital patients were
infected with the deadly superbug between
October and January. The medical center
has contacted 179 others who had
endoscopic procedures between October
and January and is offering them home
tests to screen for the bacteria. The
superbug, carbapenem-resistant
Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, can kill up to
half the patients who contract them.

The world’s largest aircraft, Airlander 10, is poised to fly again after the
UK government awarded a grant worth $5.25 million to get the ship off the
ground again. The 300-foot-long aircraft was created by British design
firm Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) over five years ago. It was to be used by
the US Army for surveillance in its Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence
Vehicle program in an attempt to bring blimps back into the military's
arsenal. But budget cutbacks prompted the Pentagon to cut the program,
and the aircraft was sold back to HAV in 2013. While the US was
interested in the aircraft for military purposes the UK seems to be more
intrigued by its potential for commercial aviation.
