    The US military plans a portable device that uses focused sound waves to treat troops bleeding internally from wounds sustained on the battlefield. Ultrasound can seal ruptured blood vessels deep within the body without the need for risky surgery. The lightweight device has to be designed so that soldiers can operate it with minimal training. Blood loss from wounds to the extremities is regarded as a major, preventable cause of battlefield death. It's a grand challenge but we're keen to have a go at it Lawrence Crum, University of Washington The ability to treat soldiers with internal bleeding on the...

Official Navy records establish that Kerry served well in Vietnam, albeit a host of witnesses have come forward to challenge the legitimacy of both the record and Kerry’s self-exalted hero status.

The network's Sam Donaldson showed the GOP candidate the cartoon, noting: "Three weeks ago, Trudeau drew a cartoon in which a television viewer...
