A few years ago, Richard Larison was leading efforts for Johns Hopkins Medicine International to expand health care access at a local hospital in Panama City, Panama, when a thought popped into his head. "You know, there are still people in my own country that still don't have access to good health care," Larison remembered thinking. Fast-forward to July 2012, when Larison stepped into a new role as CEO of Chase Brexton Health Care, a Baltimore-based nonprofit clinic embarking on an ambitious expansion in multiple suburban locations and a newly renovated headquarters in Mount Vernon.

This is where the boys are. And girls, too. Once again, mtvU, the media network for college kids and a subsidiary of MTV, the music network, is celebrating spring break in this Florida Panhandle city. The action starts today and is expected to draw thousands of students who will be flocking to the beach for fun, games, music and swag. While nonspring-breakers may want to postpone their visit until after the party is over, there is lots to do for students and nonstudents alike. 1 : Take a dive : Thanks to an abundance of natural, historical and artificial reefs, Panama City Beach is known as the "Wreck Capital of the South."

I am planning a trip to Panama City by public transportation. I will go from New York to Mexico by Greyhound and would appreciate any information about buses from the Mexican border to Mexico City and then to Panama City.Assuming no mechanical hitches, the trip from New York to the border and then to Mexico City should be fairly straightforward.The trip through Chiapas and Central America, however, will be of an entirely different character. You can expect to travel on slow, narrow, mountainous roads, and once across the Guatemalan border with Mexico, bus quality will be hit and miss.

As the crucial summer travel season starts, how much are tourism marketers scrambling to meet the challenges from fast-rising gasoline prices and airfares? Well, "What happens here stays here" is not staying around, at least for now. That feel-good slogan, which promotes visits to Las Vegas - also known as "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" - is being shelved for harder-hitting pleas. The familiar commercials with cute, funny tales about travelers whose lives are changed by trips to Las Vegas have been supplanted by spots with a fast-talking pitchman who urges the world to "do Vegas right now."

PANAMA CITY, Panama -- Panamanian voters overwhelmingly approved yesterday a $5.2-billion proposal to expand the country's national treasure, the Panama Canal. With 64 percent of votes counted, ballots in favor of the project led those opposed, 78.7 percent to 21.3 percent, prompting Panama's electoral tribunal to declare the "yes" vote victorious. That gave the green light to the first major modification to the 50-mile waterway since it opened in 1914. President Martin Torrijos staked his considerable popularity on voters approving the proposal, which he described in a recent interview as the "chance of a lifetime" for Panama.

PANAMA CITY -- Voters are likely to approve a $5.2 billion project to expand the Panama Canal today, according to polls, despite warnings of an accumulation of debt, competition, technical miscalculations in the project and possible environmental damage. Only scattered opposition has developed to the proposal to expand the 92-year-old canal to allow transit of a new, larger generation of container ships. If voters approve, construction would begin next year and finish in 2014, in time for the 100th anniversary of the canal's opening.
