Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is pushing the idea of a universal health care system in the United States. He is among the front runners in polling, so it is actually having an effect on housing stocks. The U.S. already spends more of its GDP -- 17 percent in 2017 -- on health care than any other nation.Question: Would a universal health care system benefit the U.S. economy in the long run?Phil Blair, ManpowerYES: Universal health care will level the playing field for a basic human need.

MANILA - In 2008, Albien Emmanuel Gacias was only fighting to save his own life. Little did he know, he would soon be saving the life of others. Gacias said his dream to be a doctor started when his mother succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2006, only to find out later that he would also battle a different form of the disease. “Ever since my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I wanted to become a doctor but due to financial constraints, parang hindi ko na siya naisip (I did not think about it anymore),” he told ABS-CBN News in an online interview Saturday.

Escalante, Utah • On the eastern end of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, narrow slot canyons shoot through the rocks in shades of terra-cotta red and pale peach. To the west stand surreal rock spires, the hoodoos for which the badlands are known. But what’s buried beneath undulating gray formations here is what caught Washington’s attention: coal. Decades ago, that gray swath signaled big profits for any company prepared to dig it up. But today, even the government officials charged with assessing the roughly 9 billion tons of coal deposits say they are unlikely to attract investors' interest. In this fight, ideology has triumphed over economics. While administration officials trumpet a potential coal boom here, it’s unclear whether there will be many takers. Several of the tourist operators, conservation groups and researchers who invested in the area over the past two decades fear that even a modest amount of mining will undermine the … [Read more...] about Trump has opened up Utah’s Grand Staircase to coal mining, why has no one taken him up on it yet?
