Michael Bloomberg’s commandeering of the 2020 Democratic party nomination campaign is a dangerous moment for the party and the country. If Democrats give in, it will have horrific consequences. Michael Moore lays out the truth of Bloomberg’s record and how support for Bloomberg is an endorsement of the Trumpian values we claim to have been resisting.
A recent article on a AED scavenger hunt got me interested in the topic, since I am interested in heart health. Having a working app seems like a great idea, similar to the Plugin App for finding electric car charging stations.
Yet despite the enormous investment in these AEDs, the death rate from sudden cardiac arrest is no better than it was 20 years ago. It still kills more Americans than lung, breast, and prostate cancers and AIDS combined. Worldwide, it kills about 7 million people a year.

In November 2007, Anna Malofiy awoke in her Southampton, Pa., home to find her husband, Eugene, shaking and unresponsive. She called 911 and attempted cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A few minutes later, a police officer arrived with an automated external defibrillator (AED), the Powerheart model, made by Cardiac Science Corp. By administering an electric shock, such devices can save your life if your heart stops beating.
Colombia appears to have disarmed and quieted FARC for now.

The article itself is loaded with insight, and I will offer just one gleaned therefrom and offer one criticism: In the United States, fertility rates have dropped from 2.12 children per woman to 1.72 today, and this has happened in the last 13 years. Such a rapid decline is dangerous and unprecedented. Most of the 5,700 words are centered around economics, but the United States is not alone – Hispanics are right there with us, Mexico experiencing a similar decline. The situation in South Korea is critical.
