As Republicans look at ways to replace or repair the Affordable Care Act, many suggest that shrinking the list of services that insurers are required to offer in individual and small group plans would reduce costs and increase flexibility. That option came to the forefront last week when Seema Verma, who is slated to run the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in the Trump administration, noted at her confirmation hearing that coverage for maternity services should be optional in…
There are very few scenarios where I could see myself considering the flesh of a fellow human being as food, and the ultimatum "eat today or die tomorrow" comes up in all of them. Most people are probably with me on this. But Bill Schutt's newest book, Ca nnibalism: A Perfectly Natural History , reveals that from a scientific perspective, there's a predictable calculus for when humans and animals go cannibal. And far more humans — and animals — have dipped into the world of cannibalism tha…
Every day on his way to class, Terrence Johnson walks by a bronze statue and thinks about history. The statue depicts James Meredith, who in 1962 became the first African-American to enroll at the University of Mississippi. "He transcended so much," says Johnson, a junior. "The fact that he had the will to integrate a university like this in Mississippi that has such a rich and chaotic history ... that will always be with me." Johnson's a journalism major, with a minor in African-American…
Simon Okely, the former guitarist for the Melbourne band Oh Mercy, is establishing himself as a solo artist under the moniker Slow Dancer. His sound, a delicate blend of folk and indie R&B, is largely inspired by classic blues from the '60's and '70s — he grew up listening to his parents' Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett records before discovering the haunting sounds of José González and Nick Drake. Those influences are subtle but detectable in his new single, "Don't Believe." A s…
Dirty Projectors frontman David Longstreth decided he couldn't wait any longer. In a Twitter post yesterday, the singer said it had been "four years, seven months and 11 days" since the band's last album, which was "long enough!" Longstreth live-streamed the entire new record , playing it from a turntable, on the Dirty Projectors Facebook page. It's since been made available from both Apple Music and Spotify . Longstreth calls Dirty Projectors a breakup album, a series of cathartic songs…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zjfm_XOxLOs Malaysian investigators want to talk with a senior North Korean diplomat in connection to the poisoning death of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The development comes as the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lampur insists no poison was used. "The Malaysian Inspector General says authorities have added two North Korean suspects to their list — including the second secretary of North Korea's embassy in Kuala …
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpV4ot-VEyA Over the next few days, thousands of conservatives will converge on a conference center just outside of Washington, D.C., for the Conservative Political Action Conference. It's a gathering that, for the last several years at least, had a gravitational pull for any leader on the right who may have hoped to replace Barack Obama in the White House or play a role in opposing his presidency. Now that room is likely to be filled with elation since…
Koshary is to Egyptian cuisine as the pyramids are to its culture. Emblematic. Iconic. Beloved. Also spelled koshari or kushari (those pesky transliterations from Arabic script!), it is widely considered Egypt's national dish. Rice, lentils (black or brown), chickpeas and pasta are cooked individually, then tossed together and topped with cumin-scented tomato sauce and crunchy fried onions. Things get kicked up a notch with condiments of garlicky vinegar and a peppery hot sauce called…
