To The Members Of Congress Who Voted To Deny Health Care For My Grandkids
All of the members of the House of Representatives who voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, and pass the replacement bill are cowards. They rushed this bill through the House in response to bullying from President Trump, the Freedom Caucus, and Speaker Ryan, many without even reading it. They did this not because most of them believed in their hearts it was a good bill but because they put politics before people. Because some of those people who will be hurt by this bill are my grandkids, I am “mad as hell and I won’t take it anymore.” I have a grandchild born with cysti...

The World Is Not Ready for the Next Pandemic
Across China, the virus that could spark the next pandemic is already circulating. It’s a bird flu called H7N9, and true to its name, it mostly infects poultry. Lately, however, it’s started jumping from chickens to humans more readily–bad news, because the virus is a killer. During a recent spike, 88% of people infected got pneumonia, three-quarters ended up in intensive care with severe respiratory problems, and 41% died. What H7N9 can’t do–yet–is spread easily from person to person, but experts know that could change. The longer the virus spends in humans, the better the chance that i...

Written by Sarah Schuster There are the quirky, small things that make you, you. Then, there are the things you do because of anxiety.
