The Scariest Movie Streaming On Netflix No One Is Talking About

Emily Madriga Updated July 11, 2019 Emily Madriga Updated July 11, 2019 The Blackcoat’s Daughter is the creepiest movie streaming on Netflix that no one is talking about.

Making wearables matter: Blood pressure monitoring could be the tipping point

Greg Yap Today’s wearables are still designed for the healthy and wealthy, not those who could benefit the most. Medical wearables offer the potential to collect health data and improve health via a combination of real-time AI and expert human intervention.

Jim Breslo: Free health care will attract more illegal immigrants to California hitting taxpayers with bill

the governor said. “Health care shouldn’t be one more worry.” Reading between the lines, Newsom may have mentioned rent and student debt to signal that he will work to get new government assistance for those expenses in the future. That would preserve his far-left credentials. But here’s a big problem: The policy of expanded health insurance obviously incentivizes more illegal immigration into the U.S. It also incentivizes illegal immigrants in other states to come to California. Under the expanded Medi-Cal program for illegal immigrants, it doesn’t matter when the young migrants arrived in the U.S., how they arrived, or what they have done since arriving. A young person brought to the U.S. as a baby 20 years ago by his …

FDR had a military event, too

(CNN)Some time ago, I was surprised to learn that Donald Trump wanted a military parade in Washington like the one he’d seen in France, and I wrote the commentary below about his childish demand for a grandiose spectacle. This commentary first published February 7, 2018. “I want a parade like the one in France,” President Donald Trump reportedly said to a military official, who passed that information on to The Washington Post. Trump had been the guest of French President Emmanuel Macron on Bastille Day in July 2017, and after attending the parade he enthusiastically exclaimed that it was “one of the greatest parades” he’d ever seen. And so, he wanted to preside over an equally spectacular one in Washington …
