SF New Mexican: Patients hit with fees amid health care consolidation.

Representatives of several of the state agencies that were contacted said consumers would be best served by asking whether out-of-pocket hospital-based service charges apply under their insurance plans before setting an appointment at a specialty clinic. Caveat emptor, never moreso than with health care.

Flightclub/Jalopnik: The Awesome R/C Plane Video That Pissed Off The FAA.

Hmmmph. I suspect proof skills/training may end up being required, along with insurance, for use over dense public areas. Most R/C’s don’t have cages around their propellers, and can easily cause personal injury. Imagine the outrage when a newbie takes a $600 drone purchased from Amazon and flies it over a local playground, loses control, and injures a child … all rendered in spectacular color footage.

ArtDaily: Rare Medieval knight’s sword provides cutting edge to Bonhams Sale.

“Fascinating to anyone who has studied weapons of this kind is a very similar sword which bears an inscription recording its entry into the Arsenal in the frontier city of Alexandria at the time of al-Malik Abu Nasr Shaikh al-Mu’ayyad in the year 1415 A.D. So it is not beyond the realms of the possible that the sword in the Bonhams sale also went Crusading.

ArtDaily: Lost treasure found after almost 100 years - Wartski exhibits missing Fabergé egg.

One of the eight missing imperial Faberge eggs will go on show in London after it was purchased by a scrap metal dealer in a flea market in the United States. London antique dealer Wartski said the man bought the egg a few years ago for about $14,000, completely unaware that it was worth about $33 million (24 million euros).” Now there’s a return on investment. I’d like to see the eventual provenance trace on this one.

n+1: What Happened to Canada?

What is happening in Canada is part of a much larger trend: the formidable disciplinary forces of late capitalism are exerting themselves everywhere, including in other western democracies, where governments are scaling back social programs while lavishing tax concessions and subsidies on industry. The European Union and the United States are similarly absorbing market shocks on behalf of business while allowing downturns to undermine the poor and working class.” Been wondering what the blazes is going on North of the border.
