Eight Million Americans can't all be wrong

4-17-2014 To Paraphrase the Presidents message on television today, eight million Americans can't be wrong about our healthcare plans. The affordable care act enrollment ended 2 wks ago. Eight million Americans signed up, 35 % are under the age of 35, healthcare spending has slowed more than anytime in last 20 years, medicare costs for thier life extended ten years and have 50% less spending. Congressional Budget Office says costs will be cheaper and cost less than 100 billion dollars with no denial of coverage. I know the new laws won’t solve all the problems, but it has saved and increase the deficit. Affordable care is working and Reublicans were all wrong because it is working and they had no alternative plans.

Breaking News Notes

Genetic Kidney Disease Research Among Top 10 Clinical Health Research Achievements of 2013

4-23-2014 Johns Hopkins-led research into genetic health factors that cause kidney disease to progress faster in African-Americans than in whites has been selected as one of the top 10 clinical research achievements of 2013 by the Clinical Research Forum.

The findings from the health studies, which were published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Dec. 5, 2013, combined data from two separate studies:

Mount Everest sherpas climbing group may cancel the entire hiking season because of avalanch that killed 13 people

Because the area is still unstable and if the group did continue to hike, they might be climbing over their friends dead bodies, many of them do not want to hike the rest of the season. Not only that, but some people have still not been found.

Nothing found as yet, no parts, no floating debrie, no oxygen masks, clothing, books,etc from Flight 370 Malasian Jet, 3 thoughts

4-23-2014 No wreckage found as yet. 1. There is always the possibility that the plane exploded in the air because it was carrying lithian batteries, and there is nothing left. But, if that happened, someone in the technology field would have seen some kind of explosion somewhere. Bluefin mobile sub has not found anything to report yet. The device can dive as far down as 14,000 feet.

2. If indeed the jet plunged into the ocean and immediately submerged under the sands it might never be found.

3. The other thought is maybe the plane did land somewhere, but it has not been seen because of jungle, or trajectory into the earth,etc.

It's time once again to change your web site login passwords

4-15-2014 Change your web site login passwords to protect yourself from the newest internet threat, Heartbleed. Research investigators are not sure how many passwords were compromised, could be as much as 30%, so it's going to make sense for you to change all of your banking,business and major search engines, and social sites passwords, a tedious task at best.However, you should wait until the individual sites say to change them.

Change comes hard sometimes, so you need to keep a list somewhere of your personal information, and that is not on your computer. Write them down somewhere, or save on a seperate hard drive stick.

I choose to be happy, no matter what you like because it is my right to do the things that make me happy as long as it hurts no one else

4-15-2014 I am an independent person. I support myself, I do not break the laws of this country and I support your right to do the same as long as it hurts no one else, nor you hurt anyone else. Equality and love are the words for today. My heart today goes out to the victims of the Boston Marathon and the survivors. There are some of them today who are running on prosthetic legs, propelling wheelchairs and getting on with their lives, while others pray for all of them alive or dead.

Republican men personally attacking a woman running for office in Texas, and you’re damn right it’s a true story.Wendy Davis

4-12-2014 As our political campaign has gained momentum, our opponents have gotten more and more desperate. But now they’ve stooped to a new low by attacking my family, my education, and my personal story – playing politics with the journey that has been my life.

Mine is a story about a teenage single mother who struggled to keep her young family afloat.

It’s a story about a young woman who was given a precious opportunity to work her way up in the world. It’s a story about resiliency, and sacrifice, and perseverance on the road to politics.

GM,Toyota,Ford Motor Companies Major Automakers Make Recalls

Black Box Pings Heard in Indian Ocean

4-7-2014 China scientists have been the first to report that their scientific devices heard pings that are possibly from the missing Malasia plane M370.

This has been confirmed by the Australians as well as the U.S. ships. A submersible ship is on the way from the U.S. to look closer at the bottom of the ocean in that area. Surface ships will continue to drag ping hearing devices to better locate where the black box might be in the interum.

Seems like Mr. Putin has things to hide and wants to deal with the U.S. after all. But I wonder what price we will pay to the Russians to help them in the long run? Was there a sweetheart deal? He played the game well, getting people to like him for taking care of safety issues during the Oympics, but what is in his heart when he takes another country as his?

“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
