If Universal Healthcare can work in Nigeria, it will work anywhere.
 
See how one Nigerian hospital is setting a hopeful example for the nation's health care, proving that high quality, affordable health care can be achieved despite devastating odds.

Since 2009, Colorado has had the single most effective anti-abortion program in the country. In its first four years (for which we now have full data), it reduced abortions by 42%, and teen pregnancies by 40%. And there is nothing particularly startling about the success, because it was done by the most obvious means possible: give contraception to women who want it but can't get access to it, namely teenagers and people who can't afford it. 

"Startlingly," this turns out to work quite well, quite inexpensively, and make basically everyone happy. ("Startlingly" is in quotes because I suspect that if I asked someone who knew nothing about American politics, "what would you do to decrease the rate of unwanted pregnancies?," they would probably guess pretty much exactly what Colorado did, and be not at all startled that it worked) 

(This is not actually a horribly new story, there are just some more numbers out. We've known that this has been working well for quite some time.)
A program to offer long-acting birth control, like free IUDs and implants, has helped reduce teenage pregnancies by 40 percent and abortions by 42 percent.

Hate spiders all you want, there’s no river wide enough to keep them away. Turns out, nature’s crafty little web builders are also master sailors, using their legs to catch the wind and their silk to anchor their bodies on water.

His campaign reported receiving 400,000 contributions during the past two months from 250,000 total contributors. Nearly 87 percent of the total amount raised during the quarter came from the donors who contributed $250 or less.

Nature is a dangerous place. I believe the wasp has won this fight.

Of the 547 people found by the Guardian to have been killed by law enforcement so far this year, 49.7% were white, 28.3% were black and 15.5% were Hispanic/Latino. According to US census data, 62.6% of the population is white, 13.2% is black and 17.1% is Hispanic/Latino.
 
Once again, The Guardian does a tremendous job of covering what our American corporate media can't find time for!  Thank you Guardian!

Hilarious six minutes about shaving a beard. The Un-Hitler is going to be all the rage.
