Via: perrie-halpern • Health, Science & Technology • 67 Comments • a minute ago By ttga
Death has not only been a mystery, but also very hard to define. For centuries, it was defined when the heart stopped.

By Bob Nelson, 2018-01-20Two years after the standoff at the Malheur Refuge, many people in the region remain convinced that their way of life is being trampled. Joe Cronin on his ranch in the Malheur National Forest, in October.Peter van Agtmael/Magnum, for The New York Times I took the eastern route from Idaho, on a day of freezing rain, over the Strawberry Mountains, into the broad John Day River Basin, in Oregon. I was used to empty places. Most of my childhood was spent in this region of eastern Oregon, in remote areas of the sagebrush desert or in the volcanic mountains with their jagged peaks and old-growth forests. My family moved away just before I entered high school, and I never returned; I’ve felt in romantic exile ever since. This part of America that had once belonged to my childhood became the...

That’s the big takeaway from a new poll conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy and released by Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), the country’s most prominent anti-legalization group....

By: Bob Nelson • 2 days ago • Healthcare • 5 comments
The Children’s Health Insurance Program is enduring an unprecedented crisis: More than 100 days ago, funding for a program that covers 9 million kids technically expired. Republicans in Congress haven’t rushed to extend it long-term — not until they could get something in return.
