Hundreds of parents say kids wrongly taken from them after doctors misdiagnosed abuse

“The doctor said red splotches on their 6-week-old’s skin and healing rib fractures were each “diagnostic of physical abuse.”

Other experts who reviewed the records and examined the baby on behalf of the Parkers disagreed. Two of the doctors noted that the baby had a significant Vitamin D deficiency that could lead to fractures in infants from routine handling. Another reported that the marks on the child’s skin — which the parents first noticed and brought to the attention of doctors — did not behave like bruises, and appeared to match the straps of the baby’s swing.”

U.S. Coast Guard Intercepts Highlight Growing Drug Submarine Epidemic

I’m all for going after drug smugglers… but don’t piss on our leg and tell us it’s raining…

“Even in international waters crewing an unregistered semi-submersible is illegal. This may actually increase the safety of the crews. Previously crews attempted to scuttle the boat because without the cocaine no crime could be proven. But now merely being on the low profile boat is illegal, so there is less incentive to abandon ship. Staying aboard and awaiting capture reduces the risk of drowning.”

Bernie Sanders unveils $150 billion plan to expand high-speed internet access

Well he didn’t say Nationalize… but it would be Government owned…

Sanders calls for broadband to be considered a public utility, much like electricity, and calls access “a basic human right.” The plan would provide $150 billion in grants and technical assistance to states and communities for the purpose of building out their own “democratically controlled, co-operative, or open access broadband networks.”
