Benefits on Health Marketplace Plans will be Similar, but Costs will Vary |

by Michelle Andrews JUL 30, 2013 As the state health insurance marketplaces, also called exchanges, get set to launch in October, many people have questions about the coverage that will be offered there. Here are a few that were posed to me recently. Q. Are there unintended consequences of shopping through an exchange? For example, are the benefits of a plan with a lower monthly premium less comprehensive than the benefits of an expensive plan? And are there plans available only to people who qualify for subsidies, so that once income increases, the consumer must switch to a different plan?... Read more →

Guest Op-Ed: Getting ready for post-Trayvon riots: Preparation? Or Profiling

By Colin Flaherty Special for It seemed like a reasonable question: The AP reporter wanted to know if pundits and police over-reacted to the Trayvon verdict when they prepared for large-scale violence and chaos. I was supposed to know because I wrote a best-selling book on mob violence. Colin Flaherty MSNBC news analyst Toure said anyone who anticipated violence was a racist, blah, blah, blah. The other panelists mournfully nodded their heads in agreement as they always do when Toure makes one of his pronouncements on pervasive and permanent racism. Which is pretty much all the time.

Our agents had suspected the family since a 2005 Portland, Oregon armored car robbery in which $3 million in cash was stolen, but there was not enough evidence to charge the Cabellos with the crime—that is,...

Rutgers recruiting: Knights still recruiting pass-catching TE prospect, Jamal Custis

Todderick Hunt, July 24, 2013 12:59:26 PM EDT The Scarlet Knights have already secured two commitments at the tight end position within the recruiting class of 2014. But while the numbers would suggest they move on from recruiting the position, the players they have committed are more of the in-line blocking variety than productive pass-catchers. Therefore, the Rutgers staff appears open to adding a third prospect at the position, one who not only has the strength and size to block, but also stretch the defense. Jamal Custis, a 6-6, 220-pound pass-catcher fromNeumann-Goretti (Philadelphia, Pa.) certainly fits the mold. And... Read more →
