Healthcare Plan for All Americans

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “If there’s one thing Americans need to know about the healthcare plan President Donald Trump unveiled last week, it’s this: The president is delivering more choice, lower costs, and better care for every American, whatever their healthcare needs or however their healthcare is paid for,” Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar writes in Townhall.
 
“The previous administration’s attempt to fix our healthcare system, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), focused primarily on a tiny slice of American healthcare: the individual insurance market. President Trump’s plan goes much further.”

Marsha Blackburn, Josh Hawley: Sister-City Partnerships May Be China’s Newest Political Weapon

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Yesterday, Wednesday, October 8th, 2020, Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) urged the U.S. Conference of Mayors to reevaluate the 157 sister-city partnerships between U.S. and Chinese communities, which ostensibly promote cultural exchange and economic development.

“The recent actions of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), however, suggest that sister-city partnerships may be China’s newest political weapon,” the Senators wrote. “Clearly, the CCP hides behind the veil of soft diplomacy and mutual benefit until their foreign partners exhibit ideological nonconformity… Sister-city partnerships may leave American communities vulnerable to Chinese espionage and economic coercion. With that, we urge you to heed the CCP’s strategic intentions and attempts to exploit our freedoms at the Federal and local levels.”

NASA’s Perseverance Rover to look below Mar’s Surface using Ground Penetrating Radar

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – After touching down on the Red Planet February 18th, 2021, NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover will scour Jezero Crater to help us understand its geologic history and search for signs of past microbial life. But the six-wheeled robot won’t be looking just at the surface of Mars: The rover will peer deep below it with a ground-penetrating radar called RIMFAX.

Unlike similar instruments aboard Mars orbiters, which study the planet from space, RIMFAX will be the first ground-penetrating radar set on the surface of Mars.
