    Legislative debates can be stuffy. This year's session in Nebraska was more like reality TV, featuring culture-war rhetoric and open hostility. Nebraskans couldn't get enough of it, tuning in constantly and sending thousands of comments to their state senators. Viewership soared as attention focused on a filibuster by Sen. Machaela Cavanaugh, who tried to shut down restrictions on transgender health care. The drama peaked when Sen. Julie Slama hobbled in from a hospital to cast a deciding vote to restrict abortion and transgender care. Protesters howled outside the chamber. Nebraskans now must wait until January 2024 for the next season.

      A Florida professor known as “Dr. Deep” has resurfaced after spending a record 100 days living underwater. Dr. Joseph Dituri raised his face to the sun Friday for the first time since March 1. That's when he started living in an underwater lodge for scuba divers at the bottom of a lagoon in Key Largo. His stay set a new record for living underwater without depressurization, shattering the previous mark of 73 days. Dituri says his interest was never about entering the record books but rather expanding knowledge about how the body responds to extended exposure to extreme pressure and isolation. The University of South Florida educator hopes to present findings from his experiment at a conference this fall.

          A Delaware bankruptcy judge says the names of individual customers of collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX Trading can be permanently shielded from public disclosure. The judge on Friday rejected challenges to the secrecy filed by lawyers for several media outlets and for the U.S. bankruptcy trustee, which serves as a government watchdog in Chapter 11 reorganization cases. Lawyers for FTX and its official committee of unsecured creditors say its customer list is both a valuable asset and confidential commercial information. They say secrecy is warranted to protect FTX customers from theft and potential scams, and to ensure that potential competitors do not “poach” them.

          At this stage, it is an age-old debate: which is healthier, brown rice or white rice? While experts agree that both provide valuable nutritional benefits, they have individual properties that uniquely supplement the body.

          Before hot mix asphalt was invented, most paved roads in the USA were created by spraying hot asphalt liquid cement on top of compacted gravel. In many rural areas of the USA, this tar-and-chip method of paving is still used on thousands of miles of secondary roads.

          A Florida organization is helping veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental and physical ailments get back into the civilian world. The Boca Raton-based Grey Team has worked with more than 700 veterans since its founding seven years ago. The center uses a 90-day program of exercise and high-tech machines to help the veterans. Co-founder Cary Reichbach says the center is performing magic. Several of his clients agree, saying they feel better mentally and physically. One 81-year-old Vietnam vet has gone from a walker to a cane and hopes to jog 3 miles soon. Yet one expert in veterans health is skeptical of the program's selective participant pool and high-tech machines.

          U.S. health advisers are backing the full approval of an Alzheimer's drug that received preliminary approval last year. A panel of advisers to the Food and Drug Administration on Friday voted in favor of the infused medication from drugmakers Eisai and Biogen. The FDA granted accelerated approval in January based on early results suggesting the drug could modestly slow Alzheimer's. Friday's full-day meeting focused on more recent study results intended to show that the drug clearly benefits patients. A decision from FDA is expected by July 6. It will be significant because insurers have delayed paying for the drug until it has full approval.
