"If you want to understand North Korea then you need to read Inspector O."
NEW YORK (AP) — The hero, a police inspector, prowls a city known more for its political malevolence than its street crime. If you read the local newspapers, you could think it's a city with almost no crime at all. There…

China officially claims it ended the harvesting of executed inmates' organs in January 2015. Some foreign doctors who have worked in China say authorities are behaving more responsibly, but other observers say China hasn't done enough to prove that it's fulfilled that pledge.
BEIJING (AP) — A Canadian patient's receipt of a kidney transplant after waiting just three days during a recent visit to China raised an immediate red flag among surgeons at the Montreal-based Transplantation Society:…

Ante baja oferta y alta demanda de órganos era una genial idea. Pero bueno existe los medios radicales de abrir niños en sectores de bajos recursos y extraer órganos que algún cuello blanco necesita para vivir y los paga bien

And God, let's not repeat the Act Up! scenario of the 1980s again when sex was more important than human lives. -_-

If Democrat Hillary Clinton wins the White House, expect her to mount a rescue effort. But how much Clinton could do depends on finding willing partners in Congress and among Republican governors, a real political challenge.
WASHINGTON (AP) — With the hourglass running out for his administration, President Barack Obama's health care law is struggling in many parts of the country. Double-digit premium increases and exits by big-name insurers…

No politician will fix healthcare when they take donations from the pharmaceutical and health insurance industries. These industries lobby for continuing the status quo and will fight tooth and nail against any change that cuts into their profits.

People seem smart enough: "One man wanted money for travel costs to Orlando to shoot independent news video. He hadn't raised anything two months later. Another organizer raised just $25 for travel money to hold a community healing ceremony inspired by ancient shamanic rituals. She dropped that plan in favor of sending painted rocks with an inspiring word of support."

Many residents have opposed a significant proposal aimed at helping: the new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument, created this week by President Barack Obama. Supporters have said the project could bring 450 jobs in a sparsely populated region where unemployment has been as high as 20 percent in recent years.
MILLINOCKET, Maine (AP) — Among the empty storefronts on once-bustling Penobscot Avenue, longtime resident Jean McLean stood in her art gallery, the sole employee left at a business that once had three. "Right now, it's…

Who is going to dig this well and bottle this water?  Who is going to construct these plastics and glass factory?  Who will make these farms especially in Maine where the winter months would drive the cost of raising those chicken beyond what the market will pay?  No one.  That is why it is not already being done.  Big industry was there.  Big industry was there and they left.  The local people could make the effort to start and industry.  But most people wont put forth the effort, they want to be accommodated.  They want someone else to make the effort so they don't have to do anything different except benefit from the efforts of others.  Most people are lazy.  After all it is much easy if someone else makes the effort to do things for them.  Just like people who do not speak English will not make the effort to learn English and expect others to learn their language so they don't have to make any effort of their own.  No es esta la razón por la que habla en español en un artículo escrito en Inglés a un público de habla Inglés? Es más fácil para usted si alguien aprende a hablar español por lo que no es necesario para aprender Inglés. Esto no es la verdad?

The schedules drew new attention this week after the AP analyzed the ones released so far. The news agency found that more than half the people outside the government who met or spoke by telephone with Clinton while she was secretary of state had given money _ either personally or through companies or groups _ to the Clinton Foundation.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Seven months after a federal judge ordered the State Department to begin releasing monthly batches of the detailed daily schedules showing meetings by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state,…

Those condemning the Clinton Foundation need to read what it does. Nothing profitable about an organization that tries to fix world problems like hunger, clean water, education, health... Much different than Trump mantra of campaign donations being funnelled into profits for Trump family fortunes.
