AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin Senate Republican leadership on Thursday released a draft of its long-awaited healthcare bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017. The bill contained only one mention of the ongoing opioid crisis: It appropriates $2 billion for fiscal year 2018 for the secretary of Health and Human Services "to provide grants to states to support substance use disorder treatment and recovery support services for individuals with mental or substance use disorders." Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander has argued, among others, that the appropriation is "by far the largest amount Congress has ever appropriated in one... [Read More]

Terrell Ortiz was sitting in the passenger seat of his white Nissan Altima parked in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, when a man suspected of being a rival gang member walked up to Ortiz's window, shot him multiple times, and fled. At the same moment, three rooftop microphones picked up the sounds of the shots and sent them to a computer at the New York Police Dept. and to a person in California. Together, they confirmed the noises, figured out their location, and dispatched police within minutes. Ortiz, 26, was rushed to a nearby hospital... [Read More]

Joe Raedle/Getty Images The comforting news in the results from the Federal Reserve's annual stress test is that the largest 34 bank holding companies would all survive a recession. Based on this glorious accomplishment, the clamoring has already started for regulators to allow these banks to pay bigger dividends and to blow more money on share buybacks, and for these regulators to slash regulation on these banks and make their life easier and riskier in general. We don't want these banks to survive a recession in too good a condition apparently. And it would likely be better... [Read More]

Aaron P. Bernstein/Reuters These are strange days for the healthcare industry. In Washington, Congress continues to debate a major overhaul of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Trump is pushing large cuts to Medicaid funding, and many states are still waiting to see what becomes of their insurance exchanges due to rising premiums and waning insurer interest. Amid all of this uncertainty, conventional wisdom suggests that the industry would pull back and take a wait-and-see approach to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) until the future becomes clearer. But, in fact, the opposite is true. Not only does... [Read More]

Nissan is trying to return its all-electric Leaf to its former state of glory. The Nissan Leaf is the world's best-selling electric car, but that's largely been a product of it being a very early, affordable contender in the electric vehicle space. The Leaf, which can drive 107 miles on a single charge, has lately been eclipsed by incumbents like the Chevy Bolt, a $37,495 car with 238 miles of range. As Tesla prepares to officially launch its mass-market Model 3 in July, Nissan's Leaf is set to get more competition. But Nissan is gearing... [Read More]

CBS If you watch TV today you're definitely going to see some real-life gadgets and brands. Sometimes, those products are included in the shot because a company offered money to get their product on-screen for a period of time. But other products are included in the scene because a prop or set professional on the production just needed stuff to fill out the scene, according to Jon Holtzman, who used to help Apple get free exposure on TV and movies during the early 90s, when it needed it. Think about the iconic Apple laptop Carrie Bradshaw... [Read More]

AP Photo/Saris Declassified documents released last week shed light on the Central Intelligence Agency's central role in the 1953 coup that brought down Iranian Prime Minister Muhammad Mossadegh, fueling a surge of nationalism which culminated in the 1979 Iranian Revolution and poisoning U.S.-Iran relations into the 21st century. The approximately 1,000 pages of documents also reveal for the first time the details of how the CIA attempted to call off the failing coup — only to be salvaged at the last minute by an insubordinate spy on the ground. Known as Operation Ajax, the CIA plot was... [Read More]

Jason Lee / REUTERS The US is pushing China deeper into a corner over the crisis with North Korea. It wants the Chinese to persuade the North Koreans to give up their nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. The popular perception is that Beijing has substantial leverage over Pyongyang, partly because China is North Korea's largest trading partner. This impression also stems from China's proposals to mediate trade concessions between North Korea and the United States. The US has recently urged China to continue to use its leverage over North Korea and said there will be consequences... [Read More]

Brexit secretary David Davis has said he is "pretty sure" but not "100 percent certain" that he can negotiate a free trade deal when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. "It's a negotiation… you can be sure there'll be a deal [but] the deal I want is the free trade agreement, the customs agreement and so on," Davis said on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday. "I said it will be turbulent [and] there will be difficulties but at the end of the operation there is a point of common interest in both sides. ... [Read More]
