Northwestern University Has Developed An AI System That Helps Detect Covid-19 On Chest X-Rays

Earlier last week, Northwestern University researchers announced that they successfully created a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) radiology tool that can detect Covid-19 in chest x-rays.

The study has since been published in the journal Radiology, and indicates that the system “classified 2,214 test images with an accuracy of 83%.”

Dr. Aggelos Katsaggelos, a senior author of the study, states in the press report that “We are not aiming to replace actual testing […] X-rays are routine, safe and inexpensive. It would take seconds for our system to screen a patient and determine if that patient needs to be isolated.” Dr. Ramsey Wehbe, another main author of the study, explained that “It could take hours or days to receive results from a COVID-19 test

Electoral College protects rural interests, give value to our system

Dennis Clayson, Opinion contributor
Published 6:00 a.m. ET Nov. 29, 2020


President Trump and President George W. Bush won the electoral vote during the election, but not the popular vote. How does the electoral college work?


If metro areas want something different from states such as Iowa, then voting in Iowa becomes essentially meaningless.

There is a movement afoot to eliminate the Electoral College and replace it with a popular vote. It is a very bad idea.

To proceed, we need to leave our naiveté at the door and recognize that voting methods that allow the “correct” side to win are preferred by that side.

A pure popular voting system appears appealing, but there are sound reasons why the Electoral College system was created to select a president.

Allowing everyone to have an equal voice in an election is a worthy goal, if everyone has an equal

SU is only college in state system bringing students back after Thanksgiving


Incoming Salisbury University chief diversity officer Joan Williams explains her plans for the upcoming academic year.

Salisbury Daily Times

Salisbury University students will return to campus Monday following the institution’s traditional Thanksgiving break.

However, SU is the only institution within the University System of Maryland to bring students back to campus for in-person instruction, opting not to end the semester early or transition to a virtual platform for the remainder of its class schedule.

This only includes the 12 schools that fall under the USM. The state currently holds a 6.3% positivity rate and has recently taken extra precautions to combat the virus. 

The decision stems from the university’s ability to keep its COVID-19 cases minimal. As of Friday, Nov. 27, SU has a 1.4% positivity rate, confirming 21 cases out of nearly 1,500 tests over a seven-day span.

Salisbury University administrators and staff helped a small number of

Maine university system sees virus spike days before students leave campus

Maine’s public universities are seeing a spike in students test positive for the coronavirus just days before they’re supposed to return home to finish the semester remotely. As a result, several students — those who have tested positive and their close contacts — will have to quarantine on campus through the Thanksgiving holiday.

The University of Maine System saw two dozen students test positive for COVID-19 over the weekend. As of Monday morning, there are 84 active cases of the virus across the seven public universities, according to the university system’s daily coronavirus updates.

That’s the highest number of active cases the universities have recorded since the start of the fall semester, when the University of Maine System started regularly testing students and employees.

Sixty-six of the cases are at the flagship campus in Orono, where 13 new cases among students were reported on Sunday, according to system spokesperson Dan
