>>US scientists intending to travel to Cuba for a conference on coma and death this week were informed five days before the opening ceremony that they would not be permitted to attend.... Between 75 and 100 US delegates were due to attend the Fourth International Symposium on Coma and Death, which started on 9 March and runs for four days in Havana. US nationals would have accounted for about half the audience. ?This was a high class-scientific conference,? said Stuart Youngner, director of the Center for Biomedical Ethics at Case Western Reserve University and one of those scheduled to speak in Havana. ?The subject was brain death, coma and its relation to organ transplantation, hardly controversial or something that threatened the security of the United States.?
Ain't election year politics grand (NOT!) The link for the above is US scientists blocked from Cuba; Officials would not issues licenses for travel to conference on coma and death, but registration is required, and is ordinarily restricted to working scientists.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
