Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare

Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare

In a surprising move, Chief Justice Roberts sided with Sotomayor, Breyer, Ginsberg, and Kagan for the 5-4 decision upholding the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act, dubbed “Obamacare” by opponents (and even used affectionately by supporters).  The ruling today ensured that millions of uninsured Americans will have access to affordable coverage, although the Medicaid expansion was determined to … Continue reading

Apples and Beninese Pie a l’Afrique

Apples and Beninese If there’s one thing I learned in Benin (and really, there are hundreds of lessons I’ve learned here), it’s that the best baking really does not come from a box. If you want truly awesome sweets, it’s gotta be from scratch. It’s just so much fun to tweak recipes to find what … Continue reading
