patchwork show

New data from the U.S. Census Bureau presents the most detailed picture yet of the dramatic rise in the number of people covered by health insurance since the Affordable Care Act went into effect.

County-level data going back to 2010, when the law was signed, shows a patchwork of people living without health insurance that ticked down slowly for the first three years under the ACA. But, once the online insurance exchanges opened at the end of 2013 and Medicaid expanded, the population living without coverage dropped noticeably.

The recently released Census report is county-level data for 2015. Overall, the nationwide uninsured rate dropped 7.7 percentage points for people under 65 years old between 2010 and 2015, from 18.2 percent in 2010 to 10.5 percent in 2015.

Infection

Stanley gets so caught up in trying to bring his brother back as soon as he can that he almost forgets about his burn until it’s too late.

Sure, the fresh wound still smolders and sizzles and stings for the first few days, but it’s in such an awkward-to-reach spot near his shoulder blade that Stanley patches it with gauze and some cream as best he can, and then ignores it, focused on bringing Stanford back from that portal. Without the other two journals, he doesn’t have much hope, but he rifles through the physics and math textbooks left around his brother’s house in an attempt to somewhat understand how the hell this thing works.

The the fatigue and fever kick in, and Stanley is no doctor but he knows this is not good.
