A Brief History: Universal Health Care Efforts in the US - PNHP. (Transcribed from a talk given by Karen S.
Palmer MPH, MS in San Francisco at the Spring, 1999 PNHP meeting) Late 1800’s to Medicare The campaign for some form of universal government-funded health care has stretched for nearly a century in the US On several occasions, advocates believed they were on the verge of success; yet each time they faced defeat. The evolution of these efforts and the reasons for their failure make for an intriguing lesson in American history, ideology, and character. Other developed countries have had some form of social insurance (that later evolved into national insurance) for nearly as long as the US has been trying to get it.

New studies show just how hard US politicians have worked to restrict abortion access - The Academic Times. A pair of recently published studies quantify the barriers to accessing abortions that state lawmakers across the U.S. have established in recent years, in what one researcher described as a “death by a thousand cuts” for reproductive health care.
As detailed in a research letter published Feb. 22 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers found that in the three years and 11 months between January 2017 and November 2020, state legislatures enacted 227 laws restricting abortion access in 35 states. Meanwhile, a Feb. 18 study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that the number of laws restricting medication abortions — the non-invasive “abortion pill,” which is highly effective in the first 11 weeks of pregnancy and which the Food and Drug Administration says a pregnant person can safely take at home without a follow-up exam — went from 16 in 2000 to 96 by December 2018.

Katalin Kariko's work in mRNA is the basis of the Covid-19 vaccine. Karikó has spent decades of her career researching the therapeutic possibilities of mRNA, a component of DNA that is considered to be one of the main building blocks of life.
Through multiple setbacks, job losses, doubt and a transatlantic move, Karikó stood by her conviction: That mRNA could be used for something truly groundbreaking. Now, that work is the basis of the Covid-19 vaccine. Karikó, 65, began her career in her native Hungary in the 1970s, when mRNA research was new and the possibilities seemed endless. But the call of the American dream (and more researching and funding opportunities) took root. In 1985, she and her husband and young daughter left Hungary for the US after she got an invitation from Temple University in Philadelphia.

Universal child care would generate up to $29 billion a year in tax revenues, new report says.
A cross-Canada, universal child-care system would generate $17 billion to $29 billion in annual government revenues and easily pay for itself in the long run, according to a new report.
Published Wednesday by the Centre for Future Work, the report finds that the combination of jobs created by an expanded child-care system and increased participation in the labour force by women could add more than $100 billion to Canada’s GDP. The report suggests that building an affordable, national child-care program is Canada’s best path toward a post-pandemic economic recovery. Oslo got pedestrian and cyclist deaths down to zero. Here’s how. In 2019, Oslo, Norway recorded zero pedestrian or cyclist deaths.
There was only a single traffic fatality, which involved someone driving into a fence. (For comparison, preliminary figures in London show 73 pedestrian and six cyclist fatalities in 2019; New York recorded 218 total traffic fatalities, including 121 pedestrian and 28 cyclist deaths.) Oslo’s achievement means that it is just one step away from “Vision Zero”, an undertaking to eliminate all deaths on public roads. The foundation for reaching Vision Zero is to significantly reduce the number of cars on the road.
Oslo officials have removed more than a thousand street-side central parking spots, encouraging people to lean on an affordable and flexible public transport network, and added more bike lanes and footpaths.
