If you have 'stomach flu,' chances are it's actually norovirus: What you should know

Health
If you’ve ever gotten sick from eating something “bad,” you may have had an encounter with norovirus. Sometimes called a “stomach bug” or “stomach flu” — though it’s not related to the flu — norovirus is the leading cause of foodborne illness in the United States, causing between 19 million and 21 million cases of infectious vomiting and diarrhea each year.

Norovirus is a highly contagious virus that causes gastroenteritis, which is inflammation in the stomach and intestines. It can infect people of all ages...

The CES 2019 gadget show is revving up in Las Vegas. Here are the latest findings and observations from Associated Press reporters on the ground as technology's biggest trade event gets underway.

The Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker's computer graphics technology is used in both industries. But it was his unveiling of a new gaming-oriented graphics processor that elicited the biggest cheers Sunday night. Huang also detailed how his company's advances in artificial intelligence and a graphics technology called "ray tracing" are helping to generate ever-...
