At the same time, consumers find themselves paying a growing portion of their drug bills out of pocket as the structure of insurance changes. These two developments have combined to result in significant consumer hardship.

As Trump interviews for SecDef, I have ONE suggestion…

Posted by Allen B. West on Dec 20, 2016 3:57:27 PM

We’ve discussed here the actions of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and his warnings to President Obama. I believe Duterte was concerned about a Hillary Clinton presidency and an even weaker America. Duterte needs a strong America that reasserts its respect and regard in the Pacific Rim and thwarts the advance of communist China. Also, Duterte still has a very ingrained problem with Islamic jihadism… a bomb was just found in a garbage can outside the U.S. embassy there. But that’s not all…

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Foundation Makes the USA a Better Place for Women

A battered but undeterred stay-at-home-mom stashing money into a cereal box to save enough to leave her abusive husband and protect her children. A man from Ethiopia who was not only brave enough to defy his community by opposing female genital mutilation (FGM), but who, after moving to the US, continues to call home to keep pressure on families to not cut their girls. These courageous individuals are among those with whom the AHA Foundation had the privilege to collaborate on leading trainings about honor violence over the past month.

Henry M. Paulson, Jr. Calls For Action to Preserve China's Wetlands

Posted by WWSG Staff on Nov 8, 2016 9:20:00 AM

 Henry M. Paulson, Jr. Calls for the Preservation of Chinese Wetlands

China’s coastal wetlands sustain millions of migratory birds. But since 1950, about 60 percent of them have disappeared, converted for the expansion of industry, agriculture, and cities. China’s wetlands provide an estimated $30 billion a year in ecosystem services.

At Beidaihe Coastal Wetlands and Waterfowl Seminar 2016, Hank Paulson, chairman of the Paulson Institute and a lifelong conservationist, noted progress on preserving China’s endangered wetlands but called for urgent measures to stop the continuing “worrisome” loss. Paulson also announced the launch of a month-long awareness campaign of videos and blog posts on the Paulson Institute’s Wechat and website to raise awareness of the importance of wetlands and the migratory birds they sustain.

Announcing the Braigo Companion App with Shubham Banerjee

Announcing the Braigo Companion App

From the same company that brought about affordable Braille printing using Legos, another product has been launched that helps visually impaired people. Braigo LabsTM and its founder, Shubham Banerjee, has created a software application that takes visual information and translates it into textual audio.

The visually impaired community faces a unique problem. Information is often visual-based, whether on the Internet or in our daily lives. While many companies and nonprofit organizations have invested capital to create tools that can help, many are standalone solutions and require upfront training. Some are more expensive, and others are unaffordable. Existing screen readers or accessibility tools on our computers today are not able to explain what an image says. This challenge extends across multiple languages and countries.
