The New Science of Seeing Around Corners | Quanta Magazine
Using shadows or bounced light to see round corners. Some of this is taking advantage of pinhole camera like effects caused by objects in the environment, some of it is lasers. All of it is lots of image processing.

Why Is American Mass Transit So Bad? It's a Long Story. - CityLab
Especially for the Toronto vs us cities bus map. In general though the problem is poor service because all the money went to infrastructure and not running them so people can’t rely on them. Also don’t cover a large enough area and not joined up.

Post-apocalyptic life in American health care | Meaningness
Lots of getting things done with healthcare in the states is either waiting on hold a lot, or knowing who to call at which company to sort out problems. And even then the system is so complex that you still might not be able to sort it out.

Also, interesting on the skills required to negotiate this sort of system vs better systematised ones.

Includes suggestion that hiring a 150 USD/hr advocate is the smart move for complicated situations if you can afford it.
