Microsoft is bringing the start menu back to Windows 8.1. My favorite quote in this article is "This will make Windows 8.1 easier to use on computers that have a keyboard and a mouse. "

Oh how badly Microsoft has lost its way.

In my opinion Tesla's only crime here was selling to a legal opportunist. These guys are just as shady as patent trolls. It is interesting how installing no tamper tape on the fuse box magically fixes the issue.

Ouch. This could cause lower participation by the young and healthy than needed by the Affordable Care Act to ensure long term affordability of rates. If rates are not affordable, then this entire health financing system will collapse.

If more old and sick people join than projected, then rates will increase in order to cover higher claims than expected. Higher claims costs means that premiums will rise even more for all enrolees. As premiums rise, even more of the young and healthy will drop out because what was affordable before is no longer. Meanwhile the old and sick will remain in the plan because even expensive insurance is cheaper than paying medical claims out of pocket. This change in risk leads to even higher average claims cost. Higher costs equals higher rates and even fewer young and healthy can justify the cost of premiums. This circle continues round and round with costs always outpacing premiums. In the insurance industry this is known as the death spiral and the only way to stop the fiscal bleeding is to terminate the insurance relationship.

Young people on the upper range of income eligible for subsidies are finding that they don't always qualify. That could influence the number of young adults who enroll.

Yep. The way they set it up that is pretty much inevitable.

It doesn't look like our pilot can see over the dash of the plane.

The seats go up and down off going pilots always put them down. Airlines have a minimum height requirement as well. Not just for pilots but crew as well.

As the right and left quibble amongst each other as to whether the Affordable Care Act has any redeeming value, we are quickly reminded that we have done nothing to solve the underlying problem.  That is the rapid increase in US health care costs.   Hep C treatments using this drug will cost billions each year.   Given that the Medicaid hep C prevalence is double that of the comercial insured market this could bankrupt the Medicaid plans in many states.

Love Stumptown. When ever I have a choice of coffee it will always be Stumptown whether picking up a latte from a local coffee shop or picking up a bag of beans from New Seasons.

I love the traditional atmosphere sitting on the Thai cushions with the low tables. All of the food that we have had there has been excellent.

Fantastic tamales. Imagine homemade tamales by a old Mexican grandmother who has been perfecting her craft for years. This is a good description of the Tamale House. The cheese and Jalapeno Tamales are awesome. They have a mixture of Mexican cheeses inside with a strip of fire roasted jalapeno. The pork and chicken tamales with green chilies are wonderful as well. When you order tacos they make the tortillas from scratch in front of you then grill them to order. The food is fresh and you will not be disappointed. The place is a hole in the wall. But so are all the best Mexican restaurants.
