University of Utah data tool clears up health care costs • A new data tool developed by the U. is helping doctors and surgical teams visualize when they stray from protocols by shining a light on the costs racked up by their patients.

Freeman had left for his two-year LDS mission to St. Louis in January 2010, full of faith and hope, but returned a few months later suffering severe depression, anxiety and migraine headaches. His mission president was understanding and his family in Springville was supportive. Only a few members made rude comments, but others — even once-close friends — avoided him.

The banking giant informed DWS on Thursday that its servers affecting UCard customers — similar to a debit card — were hacked from July 17 to Sept. 17 and personal information may have been "inappropriately accessed."
