Surgeon operates on the wrong eye of a boy

A Washington couple is considering a malpractice suit when an Oregon doctor performed surgery to their 4-year-old son Jesse Matlock on the wrong eye.
Tasha Gaul, the boy's mother said of his surgeon after last week's operation, "She said, 'Frankly, I lost sense of direction and didn't realize I had operated on the wrong eye until I was done operating on the eye,'" in a report by the AP.

Donors pledge $788-M to seal Chernobyl

A three-day international conference was held in Kiev, Ukraine on Tuesday that raised $788 million of pledges to help build a temporary encasement at the site of the Soviet-era Chernobyl nuclear power plant that exploded 25 years ago.
Falling short of the $1 billion target, the project that will seal the plant from releasing radioactive materials during the dismantling of the sarcophagus was delayed for three years due to budgetary constraints, said Al Jazeera.
