Pediatricians say Florida hurt sick kids to help big GOP donors

quote [ With her son in terrible pain, Meredith Stroud arranged for surgeries to fix his problems.
But just days before the procedures were to take place, the surgeons' office called to cancel them.
Like nearly half of all children in Florida, LJ is on Medicaid, which has several types of insurance plans. The state had switched LJ to a new plan, and his surgeons didn't take it. ]

Oh Florida politicians, you so Florida.

Iconic Plague Images Are Often Not What They Seem

quote [ "In the pictures that have been mislabeled as the plague, we see in them what we want to see of the plague," says Jones. We see groups of victims mid-demise, covered in lesions, reaching up to the heavens for help that we know won't come.
Almost everything about that is wrong. ]

Having a bad job may be worse for your health than having no job at all

quote [ People working in low paying, unstable jobs show more signs of chronic stress than their counterparts who remain unemployed. ]

The study.



I don't find this surprising, but then I don't think a person's purpose should be to work 9 to 5 for no reason either.

Despite Proven Technology, Attempts To Make Table Saws Safer Drag On

quote [ It's unclear whether the Consumer Product Safety Commission will finally pass a rule requiring all new saws to have an active injury prevention monitoring system built into them. ]

Guy invents way to stop getting your fingers cut off from a table saw. Nobody adopts the method, so he starts selling it on his own and lobbies for more regulation. Conflict of interest? Sure. But also a pretty smart idea.

A comprehensive guide to the new science of treating lower back pain

quote [ A review of 80-plus studies upends the conventional wisdom. ]

Given that if I'm not sleeping on an air matress, it's on a couch, my heating pad and back exercises are a godsend.

quote [ Aug. 1 (UPI) -- A Congressional Budget Office analysis estimates that a bill proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders that would allow Americans to buy prescription drugs from Canada and other countries would save taxpayers nearly $7 billion over the next 10 years. ]

How do they vote against this?

The Cautionary Tale of the Harlem Hoarders

quote [ In 1947, it took police five hours to plough through the junk and find the first Collyer brother?s body. It took them three weeks to find the second brother just 10 feet away, buried under a collapsed junk tunnel inside the four-storey brownstone. ]

Thumb is the police walking under a 12 foot ceiling. I have a dear friend with a hoarder in his family. It really is a serious illness. It makes me want to go the opposite direction and be happy with as little as possible. Well, maybe except for tools. A few more hoarding links in extended. Just a few, I promise.

Single Payer, Meet All Payer: The Surprising State That Is Quietly Revolutionizing Health Care

quote [ ONE UNHERALDED REASON for Trumpcare?s many difficulties was a sea change in public opinion. A new Associated Press poll finds that 62 percent now agree the federal government has a responsibility to provide health coverage to all Americans, up from 52 percent in March. Republicans looking to take away coverage ran headlong into this wave of support for a bigger governmental role in health care. ]

Interesting read, a number of things I didn't know about Maryland's health care system.

FDA wants to make cigarettes non-addictive

quote [ The agency intends to reduce the amount of nicotine allowed in traditional combustion cigarettes with the goal of making them ?non-addictive.? ]

I'm all for this if it means I never have to smell cigarette smoke again.
