The Affordable Care Act is already cutting health care costs, especially at hospitals that in the past provided charity care for uninsured, low-income patients. The reduction in charity care in states that have expanded their Medicaid programs with federal funds means the costs for this care are no longer being shifted to insured and self-paying patients, which makes health insurance more profitable for hospitals and insurers without increasing consumer costs. But this drop in costs is happening only in the states in about half of the nation that have expanded their Medicaid programs. The other states — mostly in the South and the Plains — have been involved in political struggles that have blocked expansion of health insurance for their poor residents. Expanding state-run Medicaid assistance programs has been called critical for the success of the new federal health care law.
Today the Wall Street Journal published a letter to the editor from Commission chair Judge Patti B. Saris regarding Mortimer Zuckerman’s op-ed “Harsh Sentencing, Overstuffed Prisons—It’s Time for Reform” (May 3, 2014): Sentencing Guidelines Are Being Intelligently Adjusted The amendment originated with the U.S. Sentencing Commission and is something we carefully considered over several years. Regarding Mortimer Zuckerman’s “Harsh Sentencing, Overstuffed Prisons—It’s Time for Reform” (op-ed, May 3): Mr. Zuckerman mentions a Justice Department sentencing panel proposing an amendment to federal guidelines. In fact, it was the U.S. Sentencing Commission, an independent, bipartisan agency that is part of the judicial branch, which voted unanimously on April 10 to amend the federal sentencing guidelines to modestly reduce sentences for the majority of federal drug offenders. We appreciated the support for this change from the Justice Department and others ranging from bipartisan members of Congress to the Federal Public and Community Defenders to Right on Crime, but the amendment originated with the commission and is something we carefully considered over several years. This amendment has been transmitted to Congress and unless Congress acts to disapprove, it will go into effect Nov. 1, 2014. The federal sentencing guidelines are advisory but carry substantial weight in determining federal sentences. The amendment reduces the guideline levels assigned to most drug-trafficking offenders based on the quantity of drugs involved in the offense. The commission determined that the guideline levels for drug quantity no longer needed to be so high. We estimate that our amendment will affect the sentences of almost 70% of federal drugtrafficking offenders and reduce their sentences by 11 months on average. These sentence reductions will correspond to a reduction in the federal prison population of approximately 6,500 inmates within five years and many more over time. The commission carefully weighed public safety concerns, and based on past experience, existing laws and guidelines and expert testimony it concluded that the amendment should not jeopardize public safety. Our amendment is modest in scope; only Congress can change statutory mandatory minimum penalties. But we believe it is an important start.
As the ranks of vegetarians in the United States and around the world grow in number, many are applying the same ethical considerations and health benefits to their companion dogs who are omnivores just as we are. The ethical advantages are no different than for human vegetarians — a break with the slaughterhouse and with cruelty to animals raised for food. The health benefits would appear to be equally compelling, since the meat found in dog food generally consists of that deemed unfit for human consumption. Yet a cloud of controversy hangs over the issue of whether a dog can live healthfully on a vegetarian (meatless) or vegan (animal product-free) diet. Though discussed at length in the popular media, no one seems able to offer more than anecdotal evidence to support one view or the other. In an effort to settle the question and quell the nagging doubts of those who choose to provide their companion dogs with a vegetarian diet, a survey was initiated to gather and analyze data on the diet and health status of a large number of vegetarian dogs. Participants were solicited through PETA's newsletter, and data on 300 dogs over a period of one year were received. The survey included questions on the dogs' diets and health history, as well as general information, such as age, breed, and sex.
January 2014 Delta Says No to Phone Calls During Flights The jury is still out on the Federal Communications Commission's decision to lift the ban on allowing passengers to make phone calls during flights. According to a poll conducted by CNET, 80 percent of the 2,051 individuals who responded say no to the question "Do you want in‐flight cell phone calls?" It seems as though Delta has paid attention to responses like this to the recent news of the possible lift of the ban. In an official memo to Delta employees, CEO Richard Anderson said "Delta will not allow cellular calls or internet‐based voice communications on‐board Delta or Delta Connection flights." Anderson also mentioned their customer research and direct feedback from frequent flyers tells them allowing voice calls during flights would ruin travelers' flight experiences. Delta is a company on the progressive front when it comes to bettering the flying experience for its passengers. This notion is backed up by the company's quick response to the FAA allowing electronic devices to be used during all phases of flights (from gate to gate). Delta was the first airline to file their plan with the FAA.

PURPOSE During the OBD--II drive cycle, the OBD--II system checks each emission control system by monitoring it for proper operation. It is necessary to run the OBD--II drive cycle: D After repairing an affected vehicle to eliminate a fuel--related or emission--related diagnostic trouble code (DTC). The OBD--II drive cycle will monitor the affected emission system and confirm that the repair was successful. D If the vehicle’s I/M test (“smog check”) results indicate that the OBD--II Readiness Monitors are “incomplete.” Readiness Codes for 1996--98 models are not set to “complete” until all required monitors have gone through one complete monitor cycle. OBD--II monitors could identify a failure. After that, Readiness Codes are set to “complete” after each individual monitor has been completed. Effective January 2, 2001, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will require that vehicles must have all OBD--II Readiness Codes “complete” at the time of an I/M test. This bulletin contains: S OBD--II drive cycle procedure for 1996-97 affected vehicles only (Refer to the appropriate service manual for 1998 and later model OBD--II drive cyle procedures.) S Warranty claim information for OBD--II drive cycle on all affected vehicles. NOTE: On 1996--97 V6 models, after all Readiness codes are complete, turning the ignition off will cause all the Readiness status readings to show incomplete (“INCMP”). This may require that an I/M test be performed before the ignition key is turned off.
