"Human bias in public assistance systems has created deep inequalities for decades," says author Virginia Eubanks. But it's really important to understand that automated systems "don't actually remove that bias, they simply move it," she says.

The plans would come with a disclaimer that they don’t meet the Affordable Care Act’s consumer protections, such as guaranteed coverage, or the requirement to offer robust benefits.

Officer Mader used de-escalation techniques instead of deadly force in an encounter with RJ Williams, a Black man with a gun. Mader was fired for NOT shooting. We sued on his behalf and won— but we need police to embrace de-escalation techniques to save lives.

It’s been one of the worst flu seasons on record. If you have the flu, you can help out by staying home until you’re no longer contagious. But how long is that?

Aid groups say the deadly aerial bombardment by Syria's government and its allies has smashed parts of at least five hospitals and left more than 500 people wounded. There's virtually no medical care available to them.

Thanks again, Kansas.

"What is known is that a Kansas country doctor became concerned when he noticed this three-day flu wasn’t typical. It was an “influenza of the severe type,” he wrote, and hit young, strong and otherwise healthy people the hardest."

Within six to nine months, the 1918 influenza pandemic had killed at least 20 million people worldwide. Some reports said 40 million.

Insolent human repeatedly objects vocally to cat's helpfulness despite the fact that plastic bottles are killing the planet and they most certainly do not belong on that shelf.

Saturn’s B ring peaks

These fluffy peaks are among the tallest seen in Saturn’s main rings, towering as high as 2.5 km above the plane of the rings, a significant deviation from the vertical thickness of the planet’s main rings, which is generally only about 10 m. They rise abruptly from the edge of the B ring to cast long shadows in this image.

But these mountains are far from solid: they are constantly changing accumulations of ring particles that respond to the gravity of moonlets and wave-like formations induced in the rings.

Part of the Cassini Division, between the B and the A rings, appears at the top of the image, showing ringlets in the inner division. This is one prominent region at the outer edge of the B ring where moonlets up to a kilometre or more in size are found. It is possible that these bodies significantly affect the ring material streaming past them and force the particles upward in a ‘splashing’ manner, in reality making them impossible to ski.

Images like this are only possible around the time of Saturn’s equinox, which occurs every half-Saturn-year, or about every 15 Earth years. The illumination geometry that accompanies equinox lowers the Sun’s angle to the ring plane and causes structures jutting out of the plane to cast long shadows across the rings.

This image was taken by the international Cassini spacecraft’s narrow-angle camera on 26 July 2009, two weeks before the planet’s 11 August equinox, as the Sun shone directly edge-on to the ring plane.
