(14262) Republicans In Complete Meltdown Mode Over Healthcare, Can Dems Take Advantage? - YouTube
what GOP want to do is slide back on mid-term promise about preexisting conditions, sure you no longer get denied, but still got to pay much more, than the other one with no preexisting condition

More than 24,000 Scots hospitalised because of drinking
50p minimum price per one unit of alcohol, to come into effect March 2018, after years of legal fight against the alc lobby vested interest. (Sugar Tax, ) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-42066394 - Minimum pricing has been broadly welcomed by health bodies and alcohol awareness groups, who say it will target the kind of drinking that leads to the greatest harm. //
People from the most deprived areas are nearly eight times more likely to need help, according to the NHS. There were 36,235 alcohol-related hospital admissions last year - the equivalent of more than 100 a day. They involved 24,060 individual patients - up from the 35,376 admissions involving 23,656 patients the previous year. Alcohol-related admissions had been falling for almost a decade but the latest figures show there were 685.2 hospital admissions per 100,000 people last year - an annual increase of almost 2%. //&! http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/drink-related-hospital-stays-on-the-rise-1-4619230

The Fix: Can The Junior Doctors' Strike Save The NHS? ( Novara Media )
new junior doc contract is a back door to privatisation in the future. those new contracts. [...] some areas of healthcare will always be unprofitable ... [...] 7 day NHS is smokescreen [...] stealth cuts (pay and pension already, now contracts, and also the bursaries turned into debt contracts thus that item off the gov balance sheet) [...] "need to treat the public as grown ups ... that is how much health care for a sick and old population cost."

[ abuse of human condition, evolution ] he argues that our social standing in today's society is no longer determined by the accent you speak with, the school you attended, or your parents.

Facebook wants to narrow the inequality gap between its technical and non-technical workers | PandoDaily
Facebook is advocating for higher wages, paid time off, and other benefits for many of the non-technical workers it hires through independent contractors. [...] This news follows increasing unrest about how tech companies, which are known for offering many of their employees ridiculous benefits and high pay, treat the workers who don’t write a line of code but still help the business run. [...] Yet the Journal notes that these benefits pale in comparison to those offered to the company’s technical workers, who receive better pay, more vacation time, and $4,000 in “baby cash” on top of their paid parental leave. The gap might be shrinking, but it’s still more like the Grand Canyon than an itty-bitty schism. [ aka a gesture and PR ]
