IIHS finds highest number of fatal crashes on July 4

Oklahoma residents who are wary about going out on the road on holidays have good reason for it. A recent analysis from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows that Independence Day is the deadliest holiday in America for fatal car crashes. The IIHS studied fatal car crash data from 2010 to 2014, 2014 being the last year with accurate data, and found that every year on July 4, an average of 118 people died.

Study finds drug combo extends life of pancreatic cancer patients

Pancreatic cancer is rare and aggressive. Many Oklahoma patients diagnosed with the disease die within a year of diagnosis, and a small percentage live for up to five years. However, a new study found that a four-drug combo can help early-stage pancreatic cancer patients live significantly longer than the current standard treatment.

New report shows A.I. more accurately diagnoses skin cancer

Residents of Oklahoma who are interested in the growing role that artificial intelligence plays in the medical field will want to know about a new international study published in the Annals of Oncology. Researchers tested a form of deep learning called convolutional neural networks (CNN) and found that AI can diagnose skin cancer more precisely than experienced dermatologists.

Coverage of self-driving car crash incurs Tesla CEO's criticism

While Tesla is rightfully considered a pioneer in self-driving vehicle technology, that technology still has a long way to go before it can be proven safe. A recent accident in Utah illustrates this fact. The driver of a Tesla Model S crashed into a fire truck and broke her ankle because, even though the Autopilot program was on, she was looking down at her phone. The reaction to this accident, or, rather, to the news coverage it received, should make residents of Oklahoma wonder about Tesla's priorities.
