Obamacare Lives!

'Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them'

Leaving a note asking that their children be taken care off, a New York City couple jumped to their death early Friday after pointing out they could no longer afford their health care costs.
According to the New York Post, the bodies of the unidentified couple — both in their 50’s — were discovered between Park and Madison avenues.
Police state that the woman had a note in her pocket reading, “Our kids are upstairs, please take care of them.”
In the man’s pocket was another note stating, “We both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.”
Their deaths came within hours of the U.S. Senate holding off on the repeal of Obamacare — a huge set-back for Dumbass Trump and the wingnuts.

  4. Taco Bell
  5. Wendy's

How data science can help us fight human trafficking

July 30 marks the United Nations’ World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, a day focused on ending the criminal exploitation of children, women and men for forced labor or sex work.
Between 27 and 45.8 million individuals worldwide are trapped in some form of modern-day slavery. The victims are forced into slavery as sex workers, beggars and child soldiers, or as domestic workers, factory workers and laborers in manufacturing, construction, mining, commercial fishing and other industries.
Human trafficking occurs in every country in the world, including the U.S. It’s a hugely profitable industry, generating an estimated US$150 billion annually in illegal profits per year. In fact, it’s one of the largest sources of profit for global organized crime, second only to illicit drugs.
