opinion Nancy Kaffer Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Jul 19, 2019 If you're wondering about the worst thing that could possibly happen after the auto insurance reform Michigan lawmakers adopted becomes law next year, I've got a not-completely-hypothetical contender: What if no-fault reform works for some people, but not for Michigan's most vulnerable drivers? Michiganders pay the highest auto insurance rates in the nation; Detroiters pay the highest rates in Michigan. Michigan's no-fault auto insurance system offers unlimited, lifetime benefits to injured motorists, widely considered a primary driver of insurance costs. The no-fault reform passed this spring allows drivers to choose their own level of personal injury protection, sets a fee schedule for medical billing through no-fault insurers, and requires insurers to offer increased liability protection.

Advertisement Supported by CBD stores and face-mask pushers are going to destroy us all. ByMarisa Meltzer June 10, 2019 Within a half-mile radius in downtown Manhattan, there are five different matcha stores: MatchaBar, Matchaful, Cha Cha Matcha, the other Cha Cha Matcha and Matcha n’ More, which are each less than five minutes apart on foot. Matcha, a kind of powdered green tea used in Japanese tea ceremonies, has become a popular drink in the wellness scene for its grassy green color and antioxidants. High-end cafes in SoHo like Matchaful blend it with nut milks or spices and sell it for $7, more than the cost of a latte. At the same time, places that once catered to healthy-minded New Yorkers before wellness became a buzzword — spots like … [Read more...] about Has SoHo Become One Big Wellness Pop-Up?
Prisoners count. But where? That's a question state lawmakers across the country are grappling with as the 2020 census approaches. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, signed a billTuesday to make his state the latest to require that prisoners be counted at their pre-incarceration addresses instead of where they're serving time. That legislation is important, advocates of the change say, because the Census Bureau currently counts prisoners as residents of the places where they're imprisoned, and states use the census data to draw up their legislative maps. But because the majority of America's more than 2 million inmates are imprisoned temporarily and can't vote while in jail, the counting method can unconstitutionally inflate the voting power of residents in the legislative districts where prisons are located while diluting it everywhere else, the advocates say. That's especially a problem in sparsely populated areas with large prisons, they say. While … [Read more...] about Will ‘prison gerrymandering’ be the next big fight?
Following his teammate’s loss over the weekend, ONE flyweight champion Geje Eustaquio became more determined to keep his title in Philippine shores. Eustaquio faces Adriano Moraes for the third time in ONE Championship’s first trilogy bout at Mall of Asia Arena on Friday. The fight is the main event of the ONE: Hero's Ascent card. Over the weekend, Joshua Pacio, a Team Lakay fighter like Eustaquio, lost the ONE strawweight belt after absorbing a narrow decision loss to Yusuke Saruta. “(The loss) is pressure and at the same time motivation to keep me going,” said Eustaquio, who became the undisputed flyweight king after outsmarting Moraes in their rematch last year. “I’ve got a title to defend for my team and I’ll do my best to retain the title.” But Moraes, eyeing to become the only 3-time champion in ONE Championship, is motivated, too. The Brazilian fighter was the inaugural flyweight champion before losing the crown to Kairat Akhmetov … [Read more...] about MMA: Defeat of Team Lakay brother fuels Geje Eustaquio ahead of ONE title fight
