OU Daily: CART Installs Wi-Fi On All Buses
OU Daily: Staying connected during the commute just got a little easier with the installation of Wi-Fi on CART buses. All 22 of Cleveland Area Rapid Transit’s fleet of buses and trolleys have Wi-Fi that users can access for free, CART spokeswoman Vicky Holland said in an email. Installation began in the summer and finished up about a week ago, she said in an email. The connection is not connected to OU’s IT network and doesn’t require a sign-in. CART received a positive response when testing the new system on its Oklahoma City route, Holland said in an email. “It didn’t take long for the passengers to get used to it, and when we put another bus on the route for a couple of days, they clamored to get the Wi-Fi back,” Holland said in an email. The system was made possible by a state grant that paid for 80 percent of the cost of installation, Holland said in an email. It cost about $1,000 for each bus with a $39 monthly fee per bus to maintain the connection, she said in an email.

Pace slows in testing after Tulsa health scare
May 24, 2013 12:51 GMT
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Additional tests reveal no new cases of hepatitis or the virus that causes AIDS among patients of a Tulsa oral surgeon accused of running dirty clinics.
The pace of people seeking testing has slowed. About 3,900 patients of Dr. W. Scott Harrington have gone to state clinics for testing. In March, health departments urged testing for 7,000 patients. Just 54 patients sought tests within the past week.
Inspectors said they found unsanitary conditions inside Harrington's clinics at Tulsa and Owasso.
So far, 70 patients have tested positive for hepatitis C, five for hepatitis B and three for HIV, but there is no indication the diseases spread at the clinics. Health experts say the spread of disease in dental clinics is extremely rare.
Harrington is cooperating with the investigation.
