What does affordable health insurance mean in 40 US cities? The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) deems health insurance to be affordable if it cost a person or family less than 8% of their yearly household income. Under Obamacare, anyone with access to affordable health insurance (8% of household income, or less) had to buy it, or pay a tax penalty. This rule became known as Obamacare’s “individual mandate.” The individual mandate went into effect in 2014. Fast forward to 2017. An eHealth study found that health insurance was unaffordable (greater than 8% of median household income), in 47 of 50 major U.S. cities, for the average family of 3. In 2018, the Trump administration eliminated the individual mandate penalty What’s the impact? People who buy their own health insurance, now have the option to purchase lower-cost coverage, like short-term health insurance. What is short-term health insurance? Short-term health insurance is coverage you can buy for a limited period of time with limited benefits… How limited is the period of time? Currently 3 to 12 months in most states… But new regulations passed in August 2018 allow some short-term plans to renew up to 3 years. How limited are the benefits?

Trump's 10 Point Immigration Plan From His Speech In Phoenix Arizona: 1. Build A Physical Barrier/Wall At The Border: "We will use the best technology, including above and below ground sensors that's the tunnels. Remember that, above and below. Above and below ground sensors. Towers, aerial surveillance and manpower to supplement the wall, find and dislocate tunnels and keep out criminal cartels and Mexico you know that, will work with us. I really believe it. Mexico will work with us. I absolutely believe it. And especially after meeting with their wonderful, wonderful president today. I really believe they want to solve this problem along with us, and I'm sure they will." 2. End 'Catch And Release': "Under my administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came." 3. Zero Tolerance For Criminal Aliens: "According to federal data, there are at least 2 million, 2 million, think of it, criminal aliens now inside of our country, 2 million people criminal aliens. We will begin moving them out day one. As soon as I take office. Day one. In joint operation with local, state, and federal law enforcement." In addition, Trump promised to sign "Kate's law", named after Kate Steinle who was murdered by an illegal immigrant criminal. Trump says he will do so, "To ensure that criminal aliens convicted of illegal reentry receive strong mandatory minimum sentences." 4. Block Federal Funding For Sanctuary Cities: "We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist federal authorities." 5. Cancel Obama's Unconstitutional Executive Orders: "We will immediately terminate President Obama's two illegal executive amnesties in which he defied federal law and the Constitution to give amnesty to approximately five million illegal immigrants, five million." 6. Suspend The Issuance Of Visas To Areas Where Adequate Screening Cannot Occur: "According to data provided by the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration, and the national interest between 9/11 and the end of 2014, at least 380 foreign born individuals were convicted in terror cases inside the United States. And even right now the largest number of people are under investigation for exactly this that we've ever had in the history of our country." ... "Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to begin a comprehensive review of these cases in order to develop a list of regions and countries from which immigration must be suspended until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put in place." 7. Insure That Other Countries Take Their People Back When We Order Them Deported: "There are at least 23 countries that refuse to take their people back after they've been ordered to leave the United States. Including large numbers of violent criminals, they won't take them back. So we say, OK, we'll keep them. Not going to happen with me, not going to happen with me." 8. Complete The Biometric Entry-Exit Visa Tracking System: "For years Congress has required biometric entry-exit visa tracking systems, but it has never been completed." "In my administration we will ensure that this system is in place." ... "We will ensure that E-Verify is used to the fullest extent possible under existing law, and we will work with Congress to strengthen and expand its use across the country." 9. We Will Turn Off The 'Jobs And Benefits Magnet': "Immigration law doesn't exist for the purpose of keeping criminals out. It exists to protect all aspects of American life. The work site, the welfare office, the education system, and everything else." 10. Reform Legal Immigration To Serve The Best Interests Of America And Its Workers: "If companies want to leave Arizona and if they want to leave other states, there's going to be a lot of trouble for them. It's not going to be so easy. There will be consequence. Remember that. There will be consequence. They're not going to be leaving, go to another country, make the product, sell it into the United States, and all we end up with is no taxes and total unemployment. It's not going to happen. There will be consequences."

We read the news about the new legislation that the Trump administration aims to pass in the United States that would withhold green cards from immigrants who have received public benefits like food stamps and Medicare. We decided to make this video in order to share some of our thoughts. We work hard to avoid reading the news, especially mainstream news, because it can be very triggering for us, but sometimes alters take over and read it anyway. In that event, we do our best to make the most of what we see. Some potentially triggering topics mentioned in this video include: grieving, immigration laws, the need for a complete upheaval of the current political system in the United States, our main testimony about being a survivor of CIA child snuff trafficking and how the peoples of Mexico/Central America were specifically targeted for use, empathy, American culture, white supremacy, denial We also want to mention that toward the end, we used a potentially triggering phrase involving the word "stones" and that throughout the video, we shake the camera slightly and some background noise can be heard. ~ Damien & co.

Brought to you by Desert Diamond: http://ddcaz.com WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump signed a bill into law Friday that will make it easier for the Department of Veterans Affairs to fire employees, part of a push to overhaul an agency that is struggling to serve millions of military vets. "Our veterans have fulfilled their duty to our nation and now we must fulfill our duty to them," Trump said during a White House ceremony. "To every veteran who is here with us today, I just want to say two very simple words: Thank you." Trump repeatedly promised during the election campaign to dismiss VA workers "who let our veterans down," and he cast Friday's bill signing as fulfillment of that promise. "What happened was a national disgrace and yet some of the employees involved in these scandals remained on the payrolls," Trump said. "Outdated laws kept the government from holding those who failed our veterans accountable. Today we are finally changing those laws." The measure was prompted by a 2014 scandal at the Phoenix VA medical center, where some veterans died as they waited months for care. The VA is the second-largest department in the U.S. government, with more than 350,000 employees, and it is charged with providing health care and other services to military veterans. Federal employee unions opposed the measure. VA Secretary David Shulkin, an Obama administration holdover, stood alongside Trump as the president jokingly suggested he'd have to invoke his reality TV catchphrase "You're fired" if the reforms were not implemented. The legislation, which many veterans' groups supported, cleared the House last week by an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 368-55, replacing an earlier version that Democrats had criticized as overly unfair to employees. The Senate passed the bill by voice vote a week earlier. Paul Rieckhoff, founder of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, applauded the move, saying, "In a nasty, partisan environment like we've never seen, veterans' issues can be a unique area for Washington to unite in actually getting things done for ordinary Americans." The bill was a rare Trump initiative that received Democratic support. Montana Sen. Jon Tester said the bill "will protect whistleblowers from the threat of retaliation." The new law will lower the burden of proof to fire employees, allowing for dismissal even if most evidence is in a worker's favor. The American Federation of Government Employees, the largest federal employee union, opposed the bill. But the Senate-passed measure was seen as more in balance with workers' rights than a version passed by the House in March, mostly along party lines. The Senate bill calls for a longer appeal process than the House version -- 180 days versus 45 days. VA executives would be held to a tougher standard than rank-and-file employees. The bill also turns another of Trump's campaign into law by creating a permanent VA accountability office, which Trump established by executive order in April. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, called the bill signing "a significant step to reform the VA with a renewed purpose and ability to serve our veterans." "The ultimate goal is nothing less than a transformation of the culture within the VA so that our veterans receive the best care possible," McCarthy said. The VA has been plagued for years by problems, including the 2014 scandal, where employees created secret lists to cover up delays in appointments. Critics say few employees are fired for malfeasance.

Hashtags: #DACA #DefendDACA #saveDACA #DreamActNow #HateHasNoHomeHere Transcription: [Video description: Chris Haulmark is wearing dark blue long-sleeved and button-up shirt in the kitchen.] Hello everyone! This is Chris Haulmark, running for U.S. House of Representatives for Kansas’s Third Congressional District! Today, I wish to discuss an important issue: undocumented children and their families residing here in the USA. We enrolled about 800,000 children under the DACA program. DACA is defined as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The DACA program was established in 2012 by Obama administration. The DACA program's goals are to ensure no federal deportation prosecutions and to provide work authorizations for enrollees. Yes, the DACA program means that the qualified undocumented children and their peers can qualify for financial aid for colleges, be able to secure decent taxpaying jobs, and to open bank accounts. These tools help DACA’s children-now-adults in contributing to our society. It's wonderful! Hold on, here's an update! Right now, there is a huge risk that the Trump administration could remove the DACA program. This is unacceptable. There actually has been a debate before the Supreme Court. The US Supreme Court ruled, 4-4, on whether DACA is unconstitutional or constitutional. The U.S. Constitution states that only Congress has the power to establish laws, such as those governing immigration, among other topics. However, former President Obama established an executive order as policy, with instructions on how immigration authorities are to execute their jobs. Whew- what a mess! [grinning] So…. We really need the Congress to act on this non-existent law. There are two lawmakers in the US Senate (that I am aware of) who took action during the last few months, proposing a bill known as DREAM Act. The DREAM Act is the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Yes, that’s what it’s called. Those two lawmakers proposing the DREAM Act are Senator Dick Durbin and Senator Lindsey Graham. Durbin is a Democrat while Graham is a Republican. Durbin represents Illinois and Graham represents South Carolina. Okay- Both of those Senators proposed the DREAM Act, as we can see, it has not successfully passed into law, yet. Many families with undocumented children here in the USA have no documents to legally remain- they are extremely concerned. Hey! Just so you’re aware, DACA protected immigrants cannot collect welfare and cannot claim unemployment benefits at all. That mean DACA protected immigrants have been socially progressing, which is GREAT! However, if DACA is removed, the devastation for those families would be a traumatizing experience! To be deported back to other countries that are so completely foreign! To places so completely unfamiliar! Whew! Understand that the agency overseeing the DREAMers, whom are the people covered by the DREAM Act, is the USCIS- United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. The USCIS is adequately funded. It is not running out of money, being self-sufficient with its own budget. The USCIS seems to be operating along quite effectively. How is that self-sufficiency possible? Each undocumented individual must pay $495 bi-monthl- No, correct that, biennially. Yes, that’s correct. These funds are able to continually support and work with DREAMers. Let that sink in... Right now, it is very important for all of us to take action in providing support for all organizations and politicians in support of DREAM and DACA. So, in consideration, I will share information in the vlog description for viewers to know what we can do. [GRINNING] Let’s help out!

Patricia Kelly, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Critical Studies at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Canada Measuring Here and There, or the Decentralization of American Art When influential art critic and curator Lucy Lippard staged 955,000 in Vancouver, BC in January 1970, she was acknowledging the international aspirations and interconnectivity of much American conceptual art. Participating artists such as Robert Smithson, Douglas Huebler, and Sol LeWitt, had, by this time, well established practices concerned with mapping and relationality. Lippard's push towards decentralization signaled a broader desire among contemporary artists and critics to increase opportunities for sustained intellectual and creative inquiry, to understand art practice from a global (rather than regional) perspective, and to expand networks of like-minded artists across national borders in often unexpected and creative ways. Using this exhibition as a point of departure, this paper will explore the circulation of artists between the US and the West Coast of Canada in the late 60s and early 70s, and its potentially destabilizing effect on American art history. Conversation with James Luna & Michael Hatt, Ph.D. Dr. Hatt is Professor in the History of Art at the University of Warwick, England Wang Dang Doodle Encounters, or Representing the Indian, Then and Now James Luna's practice has focused on cross-cultural, multicultural, and current cultural issues in contemporary American Indian society. He will present his most recent installation, which opened last month at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Luna will be joined by Michael Hatt to discuss his work in relation to art history, the representation of Native Americans in the past, and the ways in which that history is presented to the public. Deborah Butterfield Deborah Butterfield is a major American sculptor whose subject since the 1970s has been the horse. Butterfield earned an MFA from the University of California, Davis, and is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, from such organizations as the National Endowment for the Arts. In this presentation, Butterfield will overview much of her career, from her college works to her current studio practice. Derrick Cartwright, Ph.D. Director of University Galleries and Professor of Practice, Art History at the University of San Diego Proliferating Participation: American Art Displays in Eras of Crisis Contemporary American museum culture is fraught with challenges. In the face of weakening public support, institutions today claim that they seek audience engagement as a key to maintaining relevance and achieving sustainability. This talk explores the ways that "participation" has often been held up as a virtue by American art exhibitions past and present. From Robert Henri's 1915 exhibition of Modern American Painting at the Panama California Exposition to ambitious projects, like Behold, America!, the stakes of encouraging new participatory practices have at once evolved and grown more urgent across the United States. www.TheSanDiegoMuseumofArt.org Video produced by Balboa Park Online Collaborative

Major U.S. City Drops “Sanctuary City” Law, Instantly Gets Surprising Result Democrats constantly claim that sanctuary cities paradoxically reduce crime. Luckily, we now can test that assumption. Phoenix, Arizona did away with their sanctuary city policy eight years ago to receive startling results. “We saw a 20-year low crime rate. When we were allowed and had the discretion to contact our federal immigration partners, crime fell dramatically,” Explains the executive director of the Arizona Police Association. (via Fox News) The changes were felt immediately. In less than a year from ditching sanctuary status Phoenix’s murder rate dropped 27 percent, robberies fell 23 percent and theft fell by 19 percent. Crime rates continue to decline year after year. But, the largest drop occurred as soon as sanctuary status was reversed, indicating that protecting illegal immigrants increases crime. The benefits of the Phoenix experiment were made apparent after a six-year study from University of California, Riverside, which found there is no benefit to being a sanctuary city, despite liberal claims that it drops crime. The study compared 55 American cities and found that there was “no statistically discernible difference in violent crime rates, rape, or property crime,” between sanctuary cities and regular cities. This study faced the difficult task of drawing conclusions by comparing vastly different cities. However, its conclusions aren’t the whole story. Now that we can compare the same city before and after sanctuary laws, it is clear that protecting illegal immigrants increases crime rates. However, even if Arizona didn’t see any changes and conformed to the University of California study that found no “discernible difference” in crime rates between sanctuary cities and law abiding cities, the case study still would not be reason enough to adopt sanctuary policies. Essentially, Democrats in sanctuary cities argue that sanctuary status lowers crime rates. They claim that illegal immigrants are more likely to cooperate with police when they do not face the fear of deportation. However, the California study thoroughly showed that that is not true: there is no reduction in crime. If cities want to violate federal law they should have good reason. If crime rates remain the same across sanctuary and non-sanctuary cities than there is absolutely no reason to propose sanctuary status unless sanctuary cities have nothing to do with crime rates. The true reason that Democrats prefer sanctuary cities is because illegal immigrants overwhelmingly vote Democrat. Democrats cannot compete in fair elections, so they offer legal protection for their secret constituents. All of the available evidence suggests either that sanctuary status has no impact or only increases rates of criminal behavior. This forces us to question the motives of Democrats.

The U.S. Department of Labor is moving forward with new 401(k) fee disclosure rules that will make it necessary for plan providers to thoroughly explain how their fees will impact your returns. The new compliance deadline is set for April 1st. These new rules will help both employers and employees better understand just how much they are paying in fees and allow them to make more informed decisions about their retirement savings plan. For employers, the uniformity will help them to better understand what is part of a plan for its price and enable them to shop around for the best company plan without making their decision solely based on cost. For employees, they will gain more knowledge about how additional fees can accumulate and can choose their investments and strategy more wisely. The new disclosure rules have been in the works since 2010, when the new regulations were originally published as part of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). ERISA was enacted in 1974 to protect the retirement assets of American workers by implementing rules for qualified benefit plans, such as pensions and now 401(k)s. The rules were originally set by the federal government to ensure that those who manage the assets within a retirement account do not misuse the assets and serve as a guideline to how plans should be administered.

Let's all work together to support President Trump's immigration promises. FAIR will monitor the Trump administration's progress on our website: http://www.fairus.org/legislation/trump-must-keep-his-promises Donald Trump's Immigration Plan Promises: 1. We're going to have a deportation force, and it will be done humanely. 2. On day one, I'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country. 3. On day one, we will begin working on an impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall. 4. We are going to end catch and release. 5. Under my administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came. 6. Zero tolerance for criminal aliens. 7. We will issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever and they will be placed into immediate removal proceedings if we even have to do that. 8. We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive tax-payer dollars and we will work with congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist Federal authorities. 9. Cancel unconstitutional executive orders and enforce all immigration laws. 10. We will immediately terminate President Obama's two illegal executive amnesties in which he defied Federal law and the constitution to give amnesty to approximately 5,000,000 illegal immigrants. 11. We are going to suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur. 12. Another reform involves new screening tests for all applicants that include an ideological certification to make sure that those we are admitting to our country share our values and love our people. 13. We will ensure that other countries take their people back when we order them deported. 14. We will finally complete the bio-metric entry/exit visa tracking system which we need desperately. 15. We will turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. 16. We will ensure that e-Verify is used to the fullest extent possible under existing law and we will work with congress to strengthen and expand its use across the country. 17. We will reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers. 18. Within just a few years, immigration as a share of national population is set to break all historical records, the time has come for a new immigration commission to develop a new set of reforms to our legal immigration system in order to achieve the following goals: -to keep immigration levels measured by population share within historical norms. -to select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in US society and their ability to be financially self-sufficient. 19. I will direct the department of labor to investigate all abuses of VISA programs that undercut the American worker. 20. We will be the administration that ended illegal immigration.

September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.

New enrollment in Cigna Corp's Medicare Advantage health plans for seniors and standalone Medicare prescription drug plans has been suspended by the U.S. government, citing noncompliance in its appeals and grievances procedures. The government said Cigna had deficiencies in its appeals and grievances processes in both Medicare Advantage and the Medicare prescription drug program. Cigna's Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D drug plans help pay for drugs administered outside of a hospital for some 1.5 million people. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/MDV61G6nCZo/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Steve's special guest, Ken Davis, CLU, ChFC, CFP, CPA. Ken Davis is the former president of the Phoenix Chapter of the Society of CPAs and has taught continuing education for the Arizona Society of CPAs on life insurance and annuities. Who are good candidates for IRC Section 79? Owners and key employees are frustrated with limits on funding K plans. The complexity and constant change of IRS and Department of Labor rules, on traditional qualified plans, are frustrating. Other frustrations for owners are that they pay substantial plan administration fees. To benefit from the K plans themselves they may have to match employee's voluntary contributions incurring a large cost. They suffer through constantly changing complex IRS and Department of Labor Rules on an annual basis. An alternative qualified retirement plan is a defined benefit plan. In most cases defined benefit plans can provide huge deductions. However, the cost of contributions for other employees is almost always too expensive to consider this option. New hybrid "cash balance" plans are a mix of defined contribution and defined benefit plans. They can maximize contributions to owners, and minimize contributions to employees, much more than traditional defined benefit plans. However, they suffer from high administration costs. The rules change often on these as well. They provide some flexibility in mandatory annual funding but the required contributions can still be oppressive. Section 79 plans solve many of these problems and are therefore highly attractive to frustrated owners and key employees. Clients must have money to fund any type of plan, including section 79 plans. So owners with excess cash flow and wanting to provide more benefits for themselves and their key employees are good prospects for section 79. Look for these situations for section 79: • Professionals making large cash flows like doctors, attorneys, CPA's and others may be good candidates. • High tech companies that are doing well are good candidates. • Virtually any business wanting to escape the limits and hassles of qualified plans, with substantial extra cash flow, is a good candidate. Can we use IRC section 79 if the client is not a "C" corp.?The biggest impediment to section 79 is that a "C" corp. must be involved for the owner to be eligible to participate. An owner must own a "C" corp. that is paying him/her enough compensation to fully fund the section 79 contributions over a five year period. The contributions to the plan stop there or another plan can be set up with a new policy. Income from all types of entities that they own can be included in the benefit formula. The compensation has to be "reasonable" under IRS guidelines. The "C" corp. must have a valid business purpose and not be set up just to fund the section 79 plan. Examples that may provide valid business purpose include: • Management companies • Equipment leasing companies • Invoicing companies • Finance companies, etc. Advise the client to employ a competent CPA to help with this task. Most have experience in this area of the law. Historically, tax advisors would set up various tax entities to make use of lower income tax rates for entities in lower income tax brackets, or to slip under maximum income rules for deductions and credits. The IRS got wise about this many years ago and created rules that combine all entities with common control for purposes of income tax brackets and deductions. Normally this is a bad thing. However, with section 79 plans, simply setting up a valid business purpose "C" corp. may allow the inclusion of the owner's income from all controlled entities for computing their life insurance benefits without violating the discrimination testing. These are complex rules and are something for the administration company and the client's tax advisors to help with. Of course, if any other employees opt in, all of their sources of salary from various companies are also included.

Brought to you by Desert Diamond: http://ddcaz.com President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that will direct the Treasury secretary to review the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial overhaul. It's Trump's first step at scaling back regulations on financial services. Trump has called the law a "disaster" and said it failed to address some of the causes of the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The president has also signed a presidential memorandum related to retirement planning. The administration's move will delay implementing an Obama-era rule that requires financial professionals who charge commissions to put their clients' best interests first when giving advice on retirement investments.

Industrial invasion in the remote archipelago had gone too far. Ancient cedar giants and rare spruce trees—lifeblood of Haida art and culture—had been leveled indiscriminately for too long. Buoyed by their courageous Haida elders, protesters united in peaceful resistance. A total of 72 people were arrested, but their tactics garnered global attention and won change: in 1987, the government established the Gwaii Haanas Park Reserve/Haida Heritage Site. http://www.movingimages.ca/catalogue/Art/re_athliigwaii.html

The movement is spearheaded by Theresa Spence, the leader of the Attawapiskat, a small native band in northern Ontario. Spence is now 22 days into a hunger strike on Ottawa's Victoria Island just across from the Canadian Parliament. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Sick veterans: they can now use their federal benefits. Some sick veterans can now use their federal health care benefits at CVS MinuteClinics for treatment of minor illnesses and injuries under a pilot program announced Tuesday by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The new program, currently limited to the Phoenix area, occurs three years after the VA faced accusations of long waiting times chronically at its centers, including its Phoenix facility, which treats about 120,000 veterans. The Phoenix pilot is a test run by Secretary VA David Shulkin who is working on a national plan to reduce veterans' waiting times. Veterans would not be bound by current restrictions under the VA Election program, which would limit attendance to those who have been waiting more than 30 days for an appointment or have to drive more than 40 miles to a facility. Instead, nurses Phoenix VA staffing help line medical center will be able to refer to veterans MinuteClinics for the care paid by the government when clinically appropriate. Shulkin has made it clear that he would like a more comprehensive national-level holistic care partnership between the VA and the private sector where veterans have greater access to private doctors. However, you want the VA to handle all programming and customer service - something that veteran groups generally support, but government auditors caution could be difficult to handle and expensive. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump plans to sign a law to temporarily extend the $ 10 billion election program until his money runs out, waiting for the administration's plan to wait for before the fall. That larger plan would have to be approved by Congress. #Veterans #treatment #restrictions #clinically #doctors #government #program #benefits #execution #working #nurses #department #smasciencia

The following statement is from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on the administration's budget request for the 2014 fiscal year: "Today, we unveil President Obama's Fiscal Year 2014 budget request for NASA -- a $17.7 billion investment in our nation's future. Our budget ensures the United States will remain the world's leader in space exploration and scientific discovery for years to come, while making critical advances in aerospace and aeronautics to benefit the American people. "This budget focuses on an ambitious new mission to expand America's capabilities in space, steady progress on new space and aeronautic technologies, continued success with commercial space partnerships, and far-reaching science programs to help us understand Earth and the universe in which we live. It keeps us competitive, opens the door to new destinations and vastly increases our knowledge. "Our drive to make new discoveries and dare new frontiers continues to improve life for people everywhere and raise the bar of human achievement. "The space station remains the centerpiece of our human exploration efforts. It allows us to perform technology demonstrations and scientific research only possible in microgravity, all while helping to improve life here on Earth and plan for missions into deep space. "With America now successfully resupplying the International Space Station with cargo launched from the U.S. by American companies, this budget ensures that our astronauts will also be launched from U.S. soil on spacecraft built by American industry within the next four years, ending our reliance on other nations and opening up new commercial markets in space. "We are developing a first-ever mission to identify, capture and relocate an asteroid. This mission represents an unprecedented technological feat that will lead to new scientific discoveries and technological capabilities and help protect our home planet. This asteroid initiative brings together the best of NASA's science, technology and human exploration efforts to achieve the president's goal of sending humans to an asteroid by 2025. We will use existing capabilities such as the Orion crew capsule and Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and develop new technologies like solar electric propulsion and laser communications -- all critical components of deep space exploration. "NASA's ground-breaking science missions are reaching farther into our solar system, revealing unknown aspects of our universe and providing critical data about our home planet and threats to it. Spacecraft are speeding to Jupiter, Pluto and Ceres while satellites peer into other galaxies, spot planets around other stars, and uncover the origins of the universe. The budget funds our amazing fleet of scientific spacecraft, including strong support for study of the Earth and its response to natural or human-induced changes. And on the heels of the most daring mission to Mars in history last year, provides funding to launch another mission to the Red Planet. We also will continue our steady progress to develop and conduct critical tests on the James Webb Space Telescope, leading to its planned launch in 2018. "While reaching for new heights in space, we're creating new jobs right here on Earth -- especially for the next generation of American scientists and engineers -- by supporting cutting edge aeronautics and space technology innovations and research and development that will help fuel the nation's economy for years to come."
