Improved technology for pacemakers
Scientists have redesigned the standard pacemaker in an effort to alleviate congestive heart failure. A standard pacemaker has a small computer placed beneath the collarbone and it monitors the heart. Two small leads are threaded through a major vein and placed inside the right side of the heart to r

The big change is a third lead that delivers electricity to the left side of the heart. It is threaded inside a vein that iays directly over the left ventricle. This causes both sides of the heart to pump together in rhythm.
Clinton promises to share defense technology with allies
By Terence Hunt AP White House Correspondent
LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Trying to calm fears of a nuclear arms race that would leave Europe vulnerable, President Clinton promised Wednesday to share any new missile defense technology with U.S. allies, saying “it would be unethical” to keep it solely for America’s protection.
Still, European leaders remained uneasy about the proposed American system.
Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Guterres, speaking for the European Union, declared, “We have — PII say all of us — a main concern” about the U.S. program.
Addressing a sweep of foreign policy problems at a news conference on his second day in Europe, Clinton also said there was “a much greater sense of urgency” in the Middle East peace process after Israel’s troop withdrawal from southern Lebanon. “All the balls are up in the air,” he said.
Quickening the pace of Mideast diplomacy, Clinton will meet here Thursday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. He also touched base by telephone Wednesday with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
The president spoke in the manicured gardens of the 18th century Queluz Palace at the conclusion of an inconclusive meeting with Guterres, who holds the current chairmanship of the 15-nation European Commission, and EU Commission President Romano Prodi.

Scientists study new pacemaker
WASHINGTON (AP) — Almost 5 million Americans have congestive heart failure , where their hearts gradually lose the ability to pump blood. Drugs help many, but some whose hearts worsen despite medication have few options.
Now scientists are experimenting with a new pacemaker-like
device called a “ventricular resynchronizer” that promises to help these struggling hearts beat more normally.
Prompted by such early promising results, scientists are hunting 2,000 more heart failure patients for a study to prove how well the experimental treatment, made by Guidant Inc., really works.
Microsoft files last brief before ruling
SEATTLE (AP) — Microsoft Corp., filing a last brief before the judge weighing its fate, offered top executives from Compaq, DreamWorks and other companies Wednesday as potential witnesses against the government’s proposal to break it into two companies.
Microsoft also submitted its suggested changes to the breakup plan. They would allow Microsoft more time before a possible
breakup and would keep one of the two new companies away from the watchful eye of the Justice Department.
Airlines set limits for pets on planes
ATLANTA (AP) — Vicky Jenks’ two dogs whined from inside a cage Wednesday as an airport skycap checked them as baggage for a flight to Honolulu.
Had she waited another day, Jenks would have been forced to choose between her dachshunds,
Peaches and Jake, and her new job in Hawaii.
“I probably wouldn’t have gone,” she said. “I don’t think I could have separated myself from them.”
With new federal rules requiring airlines to report the number of animals killed or injured on flights, several major carriers are refusing to allow pets to be checked as baggage this summer because of dangerous heat in cramped cargo holds.
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines, which carried Jenks and her dogs
to Honolulu, will not allow animals to be checked as baggage in June, July and August. United and American have announced similar bans through September.
The carriers said they had the safety of the animals in mind, even if it meant inconveniencing passengers.
