"The suit by Josef Robinson, a nurse at Dignity’s Chandler Regional Medical Center in Arizona, challenges the hospital’s refusal to provide insurance coverage for his hormonal treatment and other medical care and the sex-reassignment surgery his doctors have recommended."


"Dignity, formerly Catholic Healthcare West, is the nation’s fifth-largest private hospital chain, with 39 hospitals, 24 of them church-affiliated. Its California facilities are covered by a state law that prohibits discrimination based on gender identity. But Arizona has no such law, and Robinson’s suit instead relies on federal laws against sex discrimination."

BRIAN JOSEPH with Capitol Weekly: "Gwen Caplan’s nightmare began with a Yelp search."


"It was the summer of 2012 and the middle-aged mother of two was looking for someone to move her and her kids from San Rafael, Calif., to Glendale, Ariz. Money was tight, so Caplan scoured the web for an affordable but reputable moving company."


"Her search unearthed several moving companies. One was called America’s Best Movers. It had terrible reviews online. “I said to myself, ‘It’s a good thing I used Yelp. I’m not going to use these people,’ ” Caplan would later tell a criminal grand jury."

Driving a car with mind control: just a nerdy sci-fi dream, or bizzarre truth-is-stranger-than-fiction scenario?


JUSTIN SIDHU with Daily Californian: "A Cal Hacks 3.0 team outfitted a Tesla to be driven with mind control technology during the annual campus hackathon in November."


"Make School, a San Francisco technical school, students Abenezer Mamo, Casey Spencer and Lorenzo Caoile, along with UC Riverside student Vivek Vinodh, comprised the third-place-winning team that created what they called the Teslapathic Project. The team adapted an existing technology called an electroencephalogram, or EEG, headset to allow the car to be operated with mind control."


"We decided to create Teslapathic after seeing the recent trend toward autonomous and self-driving vehicles,” Vinodh said in an email. “We wanted to tackle the problem in a unique way which gave the controller more freedom while still having control of the vehicle."
