    You never know what you'll find next to a Dumpster. That's where Chris Gulley of Rock Island spotted two authentic Cherner chairs, designed in 1958 by Norman Cherner and manufactured by the former Plycraft Inc. of Lawrence, Mass. Gulley didn't know that immediately, though, on that day about 11 years ago when he was driving down Harrison Street in Davenport. All he knew is that the two chairs he saw sitting next to a Dumpster in an alley were very unusual-looking and that he wanted them. "I knew instantly they were special, and I about killed us both turning the...

    Forty million Americans have end-stage kidney disease, or ESKD. About 500,000 of them are in the terminal stage, as are 5,000 Israelis. African- and Hispanic Americans have a double-to-quadruple risk for the fatal disorder, compared to Caucasians of European origin. Now an Israeli research team has discovered new genetic data on a DNA region that could predict who will develop the disease, and eventually help millions of people of African ancestry, The Jerusalem Post has learned. So far, the only ways to prolong their lives are undergoing dialysis a few times a week or getting a kidney transplant. The team,...
