Obamacare Ruined My Healthcare Coverage, And Now I'm Just Another Statistic - Forbes

Obamacare Ruined My Healthcare Coverage, And Now I'm Just Another Statistic - Forbes



In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, the farm animals, after hearing of many upbeat statistics on enormous increases in crop yields, simply wished they had “less figures and more food.” I am reminded of that passage as defenders of healthcare “reform” tell us how popular the new exchanges are or how healthcare costs have been driven down. I am one among those cheery statistics.
This year I purchased insurance on the exchange for the first time, adding force to the numerical case for the success of reform; yet like those characters in the Orwell novel I find that I just wish we had fewer statistics and were free to return to our old “substandard” insurance.

Project Ara is the codename for an initiative that aims to develop an open hardware[18] platform for creating highlymodular smartphones.[19] The platform will include a structural frame or endoskeleton that holds smartphone modules of the owner's choice, such as a display, camera or an extra battery. It would allow users to swap out malfunctioning modules or upgrade individual modules as innovations emerge, providing longer lifetime cycles for the handset, and potentially reducingelectronic waste.[20][21]Project Ara smartphone is scheduled to begin pilot testing in theUnited States in 2016 with a target bill of materials cost of $50 for a basic grey phone.[22][23]
The project was originally headed by the Advanced Technology and Projects team within Motorola Mobilitywhile it was a subsidiary of Google. Although Google has since divested Motorola toLenovo, it retained theAdvanced Technology and Projects group—which has since worked under the direction of the Android division.

“Just because we did studies over the last 70 years, it doesn’t mean that we did everything that is necessary to know for sure that fluoridation is not toxic to some processes in the body or development of the brain. Those studies have actually not been done,” said Grandjean, also head of the Research Unit at theUniversity of Southern Denmark and author of Only One Chance: How Environmental Pollution Impairs Brain Development – and How to Protect the Brains of the Next Generation.

Dr Yazami claims the chip, which took five years to develop, will not only slash charging times, but reduce the risk of battery fires as well.

Turkey Downs Russian Warplane - The Takeaway

Turkey Downs Russian Warplane - The Takeaway



On Tuesday near the Syrian border, a Turkish fighter jet shot down a Russian warplane.
Russian President Vladimir Putin called the event a "blow in the back" from Turkey, and warned of "significant consequences."
In response to the incident, NATO has called for an emergency meeting in locked down Brussels. Does this represent an escalation in the conflict? Can Russia, the United States, France, Britain, and Turkey work together in a crowded region?

  1. There is no perfect training program. In fact, very intelligent, very successful coaches often disagree with one another. That means you're going to have to learn a lot, think for yourself, and experiment. Don't like that? Take up jogging.

Haitians Protest Outside Hillary Clinton's Office Over 'Billions Stolen' by Clinton Foundation

Haitians Protest Outside Hillary Clinton's Office Over 'Billions Stolen' by Clinton Foundation



BY: 
Haitian activists protested outside of the Clinton Foundation in New York over the loss of “billions of dollars” that was meant to help rebuild after the devastating 2010 earthquake.
The activists are claiming the money was stolen through the Haiti Reconstruction Commission that was headed by Bill Clinton. In January 2015, the Clinton Foundation was the target of protests for wasting more than $10 billion and awarding contracts to non-Haitian companies.
The activists also said Haiti as a cover for foreign governments to funnel kickbacks of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. They believe that this was done for favors that Hillary was doing for the foreign governments while she was Secretary of State.
“We are telling the world of the crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for in Haiti,” said Dhoud Andre of the Committee Against Dictatorship in Haiti. “And we are telling the American people that the over 32,000 emails that Hillary Clinton said she deleted have evidence of the crimes they have committed.”
Five years, later a majority of Haiti is still in disrepair. The capital’s main hospital has yet to be finished, and there is a major rise of cholera. The Clinton Foundation said progress is being made especially in Haiti’s economic and tourist industries.

"We cannot sustain these losses," Hemsley said. "We can't really subsidize a marketplace that doesn't appear at the moment to be sustaining itself." He added that he saw "no data pointing to improvement" in the exchange market.
