Saturday, June 24, 2017

All images: Alex Cranz/Gizmodo I sat down on the train, two laptops, a tablet, and an e-reader crammed in my purse. There was a moment of relief—I’d managed to snag a seat on a rush hour train—and then, I felt a moment of sheer terror. My purse felt unusually light despite being full of gadgets.

Consumer issues stemming from the GOP health care initiative – Washington Post

Saturday, June 24, 2017

WASHINGTON — Republicans in full control of government are on the brink of history-making changes to the nation’s health care system.
