    NBA players call off Israel visit

    Magic Johnson and other past and present NBA stars, who were slated to attend the inauguration ceremony of Jerusalem’s new multi-purpose sports arena in September, have called off their visit to Israel.

    The Jerusalem Municipality and the event’s production company, Ariel, were surprised to receive a phone call from the stars’ representatives on Sunday, informing them that they were cancelling their participation in the festive event.

    Ariel and the municipality have been working on the Jerusalem Arena inauguration ceremony, which will take place on September 4, for several months now.

    …The municipality had planned a major opening, which would create a media buzz around the new sports complex. The highlight of the event was supposed to be a festive exhibition game between 10 retired and present NBA players and the Hapoel Jerusalem basketball club.

    The guest of honor would have been Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Jr., one of the greatest basketball players of all times.

    The Ariel company had also planned to bring a leading international
    musician to the ceremony. Talks held with Beyoncé and Kanye West have been unsuccessful so far.

      They were surprised? SMH, they are living in a dam bubble.

    • TresL

      I hope they cancelled because of the injustice of the attacks on the Palestinians and not just for safety reasons, although that’s reason enough.

      I seem to recall, very recently, that an Israeli official said nig*ers should not be playing for the Israeli basketball team. He thought that was an honor that should be reserved for Israelis only, which I assumed to mean white Jews. There are some nasty people over there.

    Gaza: at least 19 killed and 90 injured as another UN school is hit

    Harriet Sherwood in Jerusalem theguardian.com,
    Wednesday 30 July 2014 07.28 EDT

    At least 19 Palestinians were killed and about 90 injured early on
    Wednesday when a UN school sheltering displaced people was hit by shells during a second night of relentless bombardment that followed an Israeli warning of a protracted military campaign.

    Pierre Krahenbuhl, commissioner-general of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, condemned “in in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces”.

    He said in a statement: “Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN-designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.

        I just find it interesting that Palestinians are told by IDF to flee to such and such place, only for said place to get hit with rockets later.

        If I did not know any better I would think Israel is deliberately having Palestinians concentrated in specific areas for the sole purpose of taking them out. But I’m just paranoid.

    The GOP’s impeachment dilemma will only get worse

    By Paul Waldman July 29 at 12:31 PM

    Today John Boehner declared that any talk of Republicans impeaching President Obama is a sinister plot originating in the White House, from which so many other sinister plots have come. “It’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House,” he said. “This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president’s own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. Why? Because they’re trying to rally their own people to give money and show up in this year’s elections.” Which is partially true. Democrats do want to talk about impeachment, and it does help them raise money (though while an actual impeachment would certainly get Democratic voters to the polls in November, it’s much less likely that just talking about it will do so). But that’s only part of the story.

    Boehner and other Republican leaders are now trying to walk an impossible tightrope. On one hand, they’re arguing that they have no interest in impeaching the president — they know that it would be a political catastrophe if they did — and any suggestion to the contrary is nothing but Democratic calumny. On the other hand, they’re arguing that Obama is a lawless tyrant who is trampling on the Constitution. If that contradiction has put them in a difficult situation, they have no one to blame but themselves.

    Across US Job Market, Layoffs Are Becoming Rare
    By The Associated Press

    The risk of losing your job is getting smaller and smaller.

    As the U.S. economy has improved and employers have regained confidence, companies have been steadily shedding fewer workers. Which is why applications for unemployment benefits have dwindled to their lowest level since February 2006 — nearly two years before the Great Recession began — the government said Thursday.

    The trend means greater job security and suggests a critical turning point in the economic recovery. It raises the hope that workers’ pay will finally accelerate after grinding through a sluggish recovery for the past half-decade.

    When the economy sank into recession at the end of 2007, employers cut deeply into their staffs. And then during the recovery, they hired only hesitantly. Instead, they sought to maximize the productivity of their existing employees.

    But in recent months, the picture has brightened. Employers have added 200,000-plus jobs for five straight months, and the unemployment rate has reached 6.1 percent, the lowest since 2008.

    @blakehounshell: Liberal Democrats in Congress don’t want to talk about Israel http://t.co/SjhEqMYzHr

    • Miranda

      Those were cult-like responses. This is like some John Grisham novel where it turns out all the members of Congress were told the night before they were elected, they would win only if they pledged their soul to Israel in return for eternal life and riches after they left office. This is just bizarre. It makes no sense. We’re talking about folks who represent districts that I’m sure the overwhelming majority are not pro-Israel freaks that think killing children is all a part of “defending itself”.

      The response from Keith Ellison is most telling. You can’t tell me there is not some backroom arm twisting that involves more than just funds for your district. This is scary.

      • http://oldhollywood.net/ woody45

        Sen. Bernie Sanders, a darling of the left who identifies as a democratic socialist, was curt. His tone changed suddenly when the topic shifted from the Veterans Administration bill that he had been shepherding through Congress to Israel’s operation in Gaza.

        “That’s not where my mind is right now,” he told the Beast.

        Politics USA tells me everyday what a courageous hero this guy is but you can smell the fear in his answer.

    Chuck Todd’s impeachment tirade
    By JONATHAN TOPAZ | 7/30/14 7:53 AM EDT

    Chuck Todd on Wednesday railed against both the White House and congressional Republicans for engaging in “disgusting” and “embarrassing” rhetoric on impeachment and suing the president.

    “This is sort of an embarrassing moment for Washington,” the NBC News chief White House correspondent said. “The leaders for both parties here — they’re driving away people from the polls, they’re driving people away from politics. This is cynical, it’s ugly, it’s disgusting.”

    The “Morning Joe” panel was discussing reports that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has raised $2.1 million on fundraising largely related to its campaign materials that Republicans are trying to impeach Obama. At a White House press briefing on Tuesday, press secretary Josh Earnest read a list of GOP lawmakers that have suggested impeaching the president and said he wouldn’t call on Democrats to stop fundraising on the issue.

      LMAO…yeah as long as the GOP was talking reckless about impeachment on AM hate radio, Fox News or their KKK town halls it was all good with the Village idiots like Chuckles the Clown. The “serious” pundits were cool with it. But once the White House and Democrats flipped the script on the GOP about impeachment and polling has shown that nobody is here for the GOPs scam the pundits are butthurt that it has backfired so spectacularly. I however, love it! Those Village tears make me smile! Stay mad assholes….STAY MAD.

    White House won’t tell Dems to stop fundraising off impeachment
    By EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE 7/30/14 6:39 AM EDT

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Tuesday called repeatedly for Republicans to stop talking about impeaching President Barack Obama — but said he wouldn’t do the same for Democrats who’ve been fundraising off it nonstop in recent days.

    “It is up to Democrats to make their own decisions,” Earnest said at the White House daily briefing. “I will leave it to Dem strategists who have a much better sense than I do about the best way to raise money for their campaign committees.”

    Earlier in the briefing, Earnest read through a list of Republican members of Congress who have spoken supportively of impeachment: Reps. Steve King of Iowa, Ted Yoho of Florida, Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania, Blake Farenthold of Texas, Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan and Steve Stockman of Texas, whom Earnest sarcastically referred to as “the distinguished.”

    Earnest said that if House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) truly believes that the impeachment talk is a “scam” by Democrats just to raise money, “then I suspect that there may be members of the Republican conference that didn’t receive the memo.”

    • Kennymack1971

      The Village is pissed because there’s really no way to clean this up for the GOP and they know it. They can try to run with the “It’s a Democrat fundraising scheme!” but the Internet has too many receipts of GOPers in Congress talking about impeaching President Obama. The GOP leadership could’ve shut this down long ago. They didn’t. So they’re going to reap the whirlwind and there’s nothing the Village can do about it.

      • jziglar

        They’ve been out in the open since 2009 screaming about impeachment. No one believes that they have no interest in impeaching President Obama.

        I’m loving the DCCC twitter feed. LOL, social media been killing the GOP ever since Plouffe and Messina told everybody to get on twitter 4 years ago and become your own reporter. Its unfortunate that this kind of engagement/push back didn’t happen prior to 2010…but you live and learn..LIVE AND LEARN….now the beltway media is all upset that folks will not only call out the GOP..but call out their asses as well for pretending like they haven’t been assisting this mess all along.

        • Kennymack1971

          THIS. They’re stunned that the WH took that impeachment talk and hung it right around John Boehner and the GOP leadership’s necks. Now they’re stuck: If they completely, unequivocally disavow any talk of impeachment and yank it off the table, the Teabaggers will be furious. If they don’t they’re basically giving the Democrats free license to go upside their heads with this all the way through the midterms. And the Village is watching this unfold helpless to do anything except whine about the White House. I love it!

      Nope.

    • TresL

      It’s better than fundraising off of the four dead Americans killed in Benghazi. Damned hypocrites!

      I don’t know why they couldn’t foresee that if you float impeachment to motivate the rabid racists in your own party that it just might motivate PBO’s supporters as well. I’m sure there are others out there with sense who may not support PBO but know damned well he’s done nothing worthy of impeachment.

      Thanks idiots for engaging the Democratic electorate for the mid-terms and giving them a reason to vote.

    Democrats ask: Where’s FLOTUS?
    By EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE | 7/29/14 6:56 PM EDT Updated: 7/30/14 8:03 AM EDT

    First lady Michelle Obama is the most popular member of the Obama administration, and Democrats say she’s the one they want to see more of in the midterms.

    She’s a woman and an African-American, with a direct appeal to two groups that the Democrats need to turn out in major numbers in November. She can bring the Obama brand without the baggage of President Barack Obama himself. She can go to states where he can’t. She’s a fresh draw for donors and voters.

    So where is she? Democrats want an answer — they desperately need the help, and especially the cash.

    DETROIT (AP) — An 8-year-old boy who was lying in bed early Wednesday died after a bullet fired from outside went through a home’s wall and hit him, Detroit police said.

    The child was struck about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday at his east-side home, and was taken to a hospital, where he died, police said. The boy’s name wasn’t released by police, but The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press identify him as Jakari Pearson.

      I’m not understanding this defense strategy at all. Did Maureen actually have a sexual relationship with Jonnie?

      • Town

        Bob McDonnell and Maureen McDonnell have two separate sets of lawyers. Bob’s lawyers are trying to throw Maureen under the bus; Maureen’s lawyers are trying to throw Bob under the bus.

        Maureen McDonnell’s defense is that she hated Bob b/c he ignored her so she developed a crush on this dude and accepted his gifts. She could not have conspired with Bob because she hated Bob and Jonnie took advantage of a poor lonely woman being ignored by her husband. At least one Generic McDonnell Daughter has already testified that Bob was a crappy husband & dad and never there for any of them.

        Bob McDonnell’s defense is sure, he was a crappy husband and yeah, he did ignore her but that’s because he was Workin’ Hard for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Their marriage was broken so he couldn’t have conspired with her to take gifts from Jonnie in exchange for state favors. And sure, he hyped up Jonnie’s company but he would’ve done the same for any Virginia governor because that’s his job. And plus, all these other people took gifts from Jonnie so why aren’t you prosecuting them?

        I don’t think the two teams are in collusion with one another because it is clear and apparent that Bob & Maureen McDonnell hate each other. I think she was willing to ride or die for him when they were first indicted but he signaled loud and clear he was throwing her under the bus and he would be driving that bus. So to save her own hide she needs to throw him under the bus.

        Whether they are convicted or acquitted he will be divorcing her. She will be left broke with nothing except her straggelly ends to sustain her. Hopefully one of her daughters will take her in. She doesn’t seem to have had any form of work or income in her background. Bob probably made her stay at home and she at 60something years old has no discernable marketable workplace skills.

        To answer your question the Bob McDonnell defense team thinks she may have had a sexual relationship with Jonnie or want people to think she did because his defense attorneys tried to get Jonnie’s secretary to admit Jonnie & Maureen were sexually involved

    Why Won’t More Wealthy Black Celebs Dig Deeper in Their Wallets?

    More wealthy African Americans should be willing to make big-dollar contributions to the political causes they care about.
    By: Keli Goff

    Posted: July 25 2014 3:00 AM

    Though the outsized influence of wealthy conservative donors like the Koch brothers tend to dominate debates about the role of money in politics, a new report indicates progressives now appear to have a fundraising advantage. According to the Sunlight Foundation, the top donors to super PACs for the past year have leaned progressive. But none of the top donors are women or minorities.

    While increasing the number of women who are major political donors has become more of a priority for both Republicans and Democrats in recent years, there’s been less focus on the importance of increasing the number of people of color who give in large amounts to political causes—even though super PACs are increasingly becoming the great influencers in our political process, whether we like it or not.

    I certainly don’t consider this ideal for democracy, but they’re a fact of life, and not treating super PACs as a priority is like playing in only half of a Super Bowl and surrendering the rest of the game to the other team. Which is why instead of merely focusing on increasing voter turnout among African Americans, we should also be encouraging more wealthy African Americans to become major players in America’s fundraising game.

    To clarify, plenty of wealthy black Americans make political donations. Plenty attend political fundraisers, perform at them and host them. Earlier this week, Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes hosted a fundraiser headlined by President Barack Obama and attended by Scandal’s star, Kerry Washington. But while the amounts raised at events like this are certainly significant—the cheapest tickets were $1,000, and the maximum amount an individual can donate to a political party is $32,400—the sum an individual can give to a super PAC is limitless.

    Comedian Bill Maher gave $1 million to a progressive super PAC in 2012. That same year, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson gave a whopping $30 million to super PACs benefiting Republicans and nearly as much four years earlier. So where are the black Sheldon Adelsons?

    No ‘Rainbow Families’: Canadian Fertility Clinic Refuses to Match White Patients With Nonwhite Donors

    Dr. Calvin Greene, the administrative director at the Regional Fertility Program, told the Calgary Herald that his stand on race mixing is firm and has been policy since the clinic opened in the 1980s.
    By: Stephen A. Crockett Jr.

    Posted: July 28 2014 7:44 AM

    A Canadian fertility clinic doesn’t want to create “rainbow families,” so it refuses to match clients with donors of different ethnicities, claiming that children should be able to easily identify their “ethnic roots.”

    A 38-year-old white woman named Catherine (she didn’t want to give her last name) told the Calgary Herald that she was looking into the process of in vitro fertilization and was shocked when the Regional Fertility Program, a Calgary clinic, told her that she could only use sperm donors who were also white, in order to avoid “creating rainbow families.”

    “I was absolutely floored,” she told the newspaper.

    Catherine believes that because of the clinic’s policy, many of the same men have been chosen by different patients in the area, which was one of the reasons she cited for wanting to broaden her search to include other races.

    “Frankly, it’s appalling how many people have the same donors, probably because of this policy,” she told the Herald. “A friend of mine just went through this process and used the donor that I would have picked.”

        Calgary fertility clinic in hot water after
        refusing to help with mixed-race babies

        GLORIA
        GALLOWAY AND CARRIE TAIT

        OTTAWA and CALGARY — The
        Globe and Mail

        A Calgary fertility clinic is at the centre of an ethical and political controversy after it refused to help a woman become impregnated with sperm from a donor who did not share her skin colour.

        The Regional Fertility Program, a privately owned company that is the only facility of its sort in Calgary, said in a statement on Monday that one of its doctors was voicing his own opinions when
        he told a single Caucasian woman seeking in vitro fertilization that she could receive sperm from only white donors.

        he clinic went on to say that a ban on creating mixed-race babies that was in place for decades was removed last year, but the website was not properly updated to reflect the change.

        Monday’s statement that the clinic had revised its approach did not come until after the old policy had
        received a strong rebuke from federal government and fertility experts across the country. The incident also highlighted the fact that fertility clinics in Alberta and other parts of Canada are not regulated and that the doctors who work in them set their own parameters.

    Russia’s envoy to the E.U., Vladimir Chizhov, said Wednesday that the pressure through sanctions “lead nowhere” and wouldn’t “contribute to de-escalation of the situation in Ukraine,” according to Reuters.

    President Obama on Tuesday announced the sanctions would be Russia’s punishment for aiding separatists in Eastern Ukraine who are believed to have shot down Flight MH17.

    The sanctions target Russia’s state-owned United Shipbuilding Corporation, which builds navy vessels, and three major Russian banks: VTB Bank, Russian Agricultural Bank and the Bank of Moscow.

    GOP lawmaker: No to Obama lawsuit
    By Bob Cusack – 07/30/14 06:00 AM EDT

    A Republican congressman opposes legislation that would authorize a lawsuit against President Obama for his executive actions.

    Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) told The Hill that the lawsuit, spearheaded by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), is “theater, is a show.”

    Jones, who will vote no on the legislation that is scheduled to hit the House floor on Thursday, said he prefers impeaching Obama.

    “Why not impeach instead of wasting $1 million to $2 million of the taxpayers’ money? … If you’re serious about this, use what the founders of the Constitution gave us,” Jones said.

    GOP attorney: No Miss. law prohibits crossover voting

    An attorney for the Mississippi Republican Party says there is no law in the state that prohibits crossover voting in a primary and runoff election, only an intrepretation by the attorney general.
    The Clarion-Ledger11 p.m. CDT July 29, 2014

    An attorney for the Mississippi Republican Party says state law does not prohibit people from crossing over to vote in party’s primary and another’s primary runoff, an issue in Chris McDaniel’s presumed challenge to his GOP runoff loss to Sen. Thad Cochran.

    “You heard me right,” said Michael Wallace, attorney for the state Republican Party. “There is an attorney general’s opinion on the subject, but that is all. The attorney general may be right. I wasn’t telling the judge that the attorney general wasn’t right. I was telling her that the issue has never gone to court. … The attorney general may be 100 percent right, but the issue has not been tested in court that I know of. It may have came up in a county court somewhere that hasn’t made it to reported cases. But to the best of my knowledge, it hasn’t been tested. All we have is an attorney general interpretation.”

    — –The WNBA’s longtime star player Lisa Leslie made history when she became the first woman to dunk in a professional basketball game on July 30, 2002.

    Leslie also made history by becoming the first WNBA player to win the regular season MVP, the All-Star game MVP and the playoff MVP in the same season.

    Born in 1972, Leslie didn’t get into basketball until middle school.
    She later went on to play for her high school basketball team and then to play for the University of Southern California.

    As if the WNBA star’s accomplishments weren’t enough, Leslie also helped bring the Olympic women’s basketball team to victory in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

    The years following her Olympic gold win, Leslie continued to win
    championships and MVP honors before becoming the first woman to slam dunk in a professional game.

    The most frightening candidate I’ve met in seven years interviewing congressional hopefuls
    By David Wasserman July 30 at 6:00 AM

    As a House analyst for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, I’ve personally interviewed over 300 congressional candidates over the course of seven years, both to get to know them and evaluate their chances of winning. I’ve been impressed by just as many Republicans as Democrats, and underwhelmed by equal numbers, too. Most are accustomed to tough questions.

    But never have I met any candidate quite as frightening or fact-averse as Louisiana state Rep. Lenar Whitney, 55, who visited my office last Wednesday. It’s tough to decide which party’s worst nightmare she would be.

    – -World Hepatitis Day: July 28th 2014-

    – – —All across the world, World Hepatitis Day is our chance to call for a change in attitude to viral hepatitis. We’re got loads of ways for you to get involved; take a look below to find posters, the official WHD website and many more materials for you to hold your very own WHD event.
    – – — -SNIP – – –
    Viral hepatitis is liver inflammation due to a viral infection.[1] It may present in acute (recent infection, relatively rapid onset) or chronic forms. The most common causes of viral hepatitis are the five unrelated hepatotropic viruses Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis D, and Hepatitis E. In addition to the nominal hepatitis viruses, other viruses that can also cause liver inflammation include Herpes simplex, Cytomegalovirus, Epstein–Barr virus, or Yellow fever. [Hepa- /hepat- = liver]

    — —–☺Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide.[4] Other common causes of non-viral hepatitis include toxic and drug-induced, alcoholic, autoimmune, fatty liver, and metabolic disorders.[5] Less commonly some bacterial, parasitic, fungal, mycobacterial and protozoal infections can cause hepatitis.[6][7] Additionally, certain complications of pregnancy and decreased blood flow to the liver can induce hepatitis.[6][8] Cholestasis (obstruction of bile flow) due to hepatocellular dysfunction, biliary tract obstruction, or biliary atresia can result in liver damage and hepatitis.[9][10]
    – – —-SNIP —

    — – — –☺Vaccines are available to prevent hepatitis A and B. Hepatitis A immunity is achieved in 99-100% of persons receiving the two-dose inactivated virus vaccine. The hepatitis A vaccine is not approved for children under one year of age.[59] Vaccines to prevent hepatitis B have been available since 1986 and have been incorporated into at least 177 national immunization programs for children. Immunity is achieved in greater than 95% of children and young adults receiving the three-dose recombinant virus vaccine. Vaccination within 24 hours of birth can prevent transmission from an infected mother.

    In Kansas, Brownback tried a red-state ‘experiment.’ Now he may be paying a political price
    By Zachary A. Goldfarb July 30 at 6:00 AM

    GODDARD, Kan. — Gail Jamison, a lifelong Republican, voted for Sam Brownback for governor in 2010 believing he would restore school funding that had been greatly reduced by the recession.

    Four years later, she has joined with more than 100 prominent Republicans in publicly throwing their support behind Brownback’s Democratic opponent — because, she said, Brownback pursued a hefty tax cut for the rich that deprived schools of needed resources.

    “I am shocked by what’s happened,” said Jamison, president of the Board of Education in this Wichita suburb. “I find it personally a very extreme stance.”

    As he runs for reelection, Brownback is finding that what he once called a “real live experiment” in red-state governance is struggling to produce the benefits he had promised, spurring an increasingly competitive gubernatorial race against state House Minority Leader Paul Davis (D). His troubles also provide a case study of what can happen when single-party control — now the norm in most states — combines with the sharp rightward shift of the Republican Party.

    • PBomb

      Ok, that lady has to be simple. I don’t know of any modern day Republican candidates who run on the platform of funding schools. How is she shocked that the Republican governor she voted into office gave the rich a large tax cut and it would have consequences.

      I just not buying it.

      • rikyrah

        let me explain it you, PBomb…
        see, when he talks about ‘cuts’, she thought he meant THOSE PEOPLE.
        when he talked about cutting funding to schools…
        it was THOSE SCHOOLS.
        a whole lotta White folk in suburbs never thought school cuts could make it down TO THEM.

    Whether they are convicted or acquitted he will be divorcing her. She
    will be left broke with nothing except her straggelly ends to sustain
    her. Hopefully one of her daughters will take her in. She doesn’t seem
    to have had any form of work or income in her background. Bob probably
    made her stay at home and she at 60something years old has no
    discernable marketable workplace skills.

    This comment was below, in regards to Maureen McDonnell. I want to touch on this some more.

    I have never heard of Maureen McDonnell ever having a job after marrying Bob. Seems like she was probably a stay at home mom; Bob’s college thesis was that women should not work outside of the home. They had been married for 35 years so if she was a SAHM she’s been out of the workforce for almost 40 years.

    No matter which way it goes for him, Bob McDonnell will be dumping his wife’s a$$. Now imagine, you are 60 years old, your husband has dumped you and you have no marketable workplace skills. He might break you off some $ but since the entire country has seen you twerking and jerking for some other man who is not your husband, ya might not get nothing.

    At any rate, you might have to go back to work. But what would you do? You don’t have any skills and you can best believe all your Republican job makers will close ranks and shut you out.

    But check it: Maureen McDonnell was known for being very nasty to low level staff people. How ironic it would be if she had to start over working along the very people she thought she was better than and was nasty to?

    It’s either that or going to jail with the very people she thought she was better than and was nasty to.

    Irony. It’s whats for dinner.

    — – –The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill (aka BP Oil Spill) was one of the worst oil disasters in history. How much damage was done? How is BP making up for it? This is what we discovered:

    – – –♠1. In the BP Oil Spill, more than 200 million gallons of crude oil was pumped into the Gulf of Mexico for a total of 87 days, making it the biggest oil spill in U.S. history.

    2. 16,000 total miles of coastline have been affected, including the coasts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.

    3. Even though the gushing well was capped in July 2010, oil is still washing up on shores, which might cause long-term damages to people living in the area.

    4. The initial oil rig explosion killed 11 people and injured 17 others.

    5. President Obama announced that his administration would create a $20 billion spill response fund
    – – —-SNIP —

    10. BP is responsible for close to $40 billion in fines, cleanup costs,
    and settlements as a result of the oil spill in 2010, with an additional
    $16 billion due to the Clean Water Act.

    Amid Tensions, Legal Immigrants Fear Signing Up for Obamacare

    The wave of unaccompanied undocumented minors entering the U.S. has capturednational attention. But a new Kaiser Family Foundation survey reveals a very different immigration issue.

    In California, legal immigrants entitled to health coverage under theAffordable Care Act (ACA) are afraid to enroll because they worry that doing so would expose an undocumented relative to investigation and deportation. That’s despite assurances from the government that any information gathered about immigrant families from ACA coverage applications will not be used toward immigration enforcement.

    In the survey, 54% of California’s documented and undocumented Hispanics who remained uninsured after the ACA’s first open-enrollment season, and 37% who are here legally and eligible for ACA coverage, said they worry that seeking coverage would bring attention to relatives’ immigration status. By many standards, California had great success in its first ACA open enrollment: 58% or 3.4 million of its previously uninsured population enrolled. But 62% of its remaining uninsured are Latinos; of those, 32% are eligible for coverage and 29% are undocumented and not eligible for coverage. Many come from families with mixed legal status. Bridging the fear gap is critical to providing the coverage for which legal immigrants are eligible. It also will be important to meeting overall goals for covering the uninsured in California and other states with large immigrant populations.
