Re: “Arkansas Medicaid sees enrollment bump

If I was one of the insurance companies that had individuals drop off because of the work requirement, I would put some efforts towards sending out letters and making phone calls trying to get those to re-enroll. I wonder if they have any outreach efforts going on.

Re: “Over the hump headlines and open line

Has it been discussed: Trump says that windmill noise causes cancer.

The top 10 list of most absurd Trump claims had to be reorganized. "Windmill noise cause cancer" debuts at #7
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/20…

I'm sure there aren't any studies showing wind turbines sound cause cancer. On the other hand, I heard Trump has been known to make the brown noise, the sound that makes one spontaneously crap the pants.

He'd probably claim coal power plants don't cause cancer. Please, someone bait him if he hasn't said it already.

Re: “Another negative review of Arkansas's Medicaid work rule

And yet California has the highest income tax rate. Companies and people are still doing well there.

Re: “Amended bill to exempt young workers from minimum wage increase clears House panel

The non-profits could ask for volunteers from the community, especially those that run the risk of losing their insurance.

Re: “Buying way into the Ivies: What else is new?

The link in "As I write, the school some cynics call the University of Spoiled Children has pondered expelling her." is broken.

Re: “A parent defends Haas Hall charter school

"Combining high and low level achiervers [sic] doesn't and has never worked!"

Which studies show?? I mean, I'm sure there are probably some, but "never" is wrong except in our Trumpiverse. Haven't we identified successful schools that had more of a mix between low and high achievers, socio-economic disparities, ethnic diversity, and lingual challenges? Did they hinder/diminish high achievers? How was it measured exactly?

Isn't the proficiency vs growth debate part of this too?

https://www.the74million.org/article/barnu…

Does building separate classes and developing separate teaching areas for low achievers result in better outcomes always?

I'd argue that my child and his would have some advantage if they were exposed to a variety of achievers and fellow students with diverse backgrounds when they enter employment after their education/formative years compared to others that were segregated into groups. But, I admit I don't have the facts or studies to back this position.

Mr. Taylor and I both write from the truthiness within us, although I'm not absolutely sure.
