In Town With Little Water, Coca-Cola Is Everywhere. So Is Diabetes. – The New York Times


The effect on public health has been devastating. The mortality rate from diabetes in Chiapas increased 30 percent between 2013 and 2016, and the disease is now the second-leading cause of death in the state after heart disease, claiming more than 3,000 lives every year.

Krugman Says


Agent Strzok Testifies on the FBI


Outrageous!


The center mass of Trump’s campaign of inhumanity is focused on infants again, this time their global feeding: in the name of “choice” HHS opposed a World Health Organization resolution in support of breastfeeding, citing the near consensus research from field populations that breast milk gives human infants the best chance of healthy development and disease resistance; if fact the US delegation forced Ecuador by threats (to military aid and trade) to withdraw the resolution before the assembly. After scrambles and nations saying no, Russia agreed to sponsor the resolution. Without US objections nor White House-directed, diplomatic threats. Everyone knew the US backed down. 2 Replies54 Recommend

Donna Brazile wrote and spoke about its frozen will. Jim Clyburn said the difference between campaign polls and voting feet would be radio spots, too late for yard signs. Charles Blow rails against its moral failures; Joy Reid counts its harm. Paul Krugman warns about self-inflicted faults. But the billion campaign shared no funds. No crumbs.

Polls are preliminary, not final. Feet win.

Ocasio-Cortez is authentic. “A fighter,” she brings deep, joyful spirit. She wants healthcare, housing and education from public money; not “free,” but shared. The difference between her and traditional Democrats? She beat a vaulted machine boss: in line for House Speaker in a waterfront district that bounds both sides of a river, a different borough on each side; a purged 2016 voter in a district with an international airport, a pro ball park, the US Tennis Open, and lots of public riverlands, she motivated the least motivated voters. If you take no corporate money and knock on doors, your values and message are clear.
