    Based on the results of this year's study, if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in the award-winning facilities: Nearly than 89,000 additional lives could be saved; Over 61,000 additional patients could be complication free; Over $5.6 billion in inpatient costs could be saved; The average patient stay would decrease by half a day; Over 300,000 fewer discharged patients would be readmitted within 30 days; Patients would spend nine minutes less in hospital emergency departments per visit. If the same standards were applied to all inpatient care, the impact would be even greater.

    • TripAdvisor has released its 2017 Travelers' Choice Awards, naming the 25 best beaches in the US. • Florida's Siesta Key Beach claims the title of America's best beach, followed by coastal stretches across the country in Hawaii, California, Georgia, and more. • TripAdvisor also found the cheapest month to visit each beach destination, and the average rate for a hotel room there. The world is full of gorgeous beaches, so it's easy to forget that the US has some spectacular beaches of its own — especially if you don't live along the coast.

    “Sales of Joy Villa’s music has skyrocketed after she wore a pro-Trump dress to the Grammy Awards,” CBS Pittsburgh (KDKA) reports. “On the red carpet Villa wore a gown of red, white and blue with the words ‘Make America Great Again’ on the front and ‘Trump’ on the back,” KDKA reports. “After her appearance at the Grammy’s the 25-year-old’s EP ‘I Make The Static‘ jumped to number one on Amazon’s top digital albums, and is still there Monday,” KDKA reports. “She was also climbing the charts on iTunes.”

    Last night when I saw and read about this 25 year old black girl who wore a PRO-TRUMP dress to the Grammy's, my mind began to wonder if she was a sincere fan. Then I saw the designer of the dress was a pro-Trump immigrant. So I went to Amazon and checked Joy Villa's album. "I Make the Static" was something like #2,300 on the charts. I decided to buy it. I was not alone. As of 6:30 am Central time, she is #1

    There’s no easy way to rate dog intelligence. As psychologist Stanley Coren wrote back in the 90s, there’s adaptive intelligence (i.e., figuring stuff out), working intelligence (i.e., following orders), and instinctive intelligence (i.e., innate talent) — not to mention spatial intelligence, kinesthetic intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and more. Indeed, as animal behaviorist Frans de Waal has argued, humans tend to judge animal intelligence in limited and unfair terms and often bungle the experiment. While labs at Yale, Duke, and around the world are studying this question, for now we do at least have data on one metric: working intelligence. Coren, in...

    EW.com ^ | January 21, 2017 | James Hibberd
    Donald Trump’s inauguration ratings were the second-highest in 36 years, according to Nielsen. The swearing-in of the 45th president was seen by 30.6 million viewers across 12 networks. The only inauguration over the last three decades that tops Trump’s number in the linear ratings? Barack Obama’s first inauguration back in 2009, which had a record-setting 37.8 million viewers. Before that, you’d have to go all the way back to Ronald Reagan in 1981, who was seen by 41.8 million viewers (Nielsen tracks inauguration ratings back to 1969). The numbers are all the more remarkable considering Trump is entering into office...

    DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- The gap between the super-rich and the poorest half of the global population is starker than previously thought, with just eight men, from Bill Gates to Michael Bloomberg, owning as much wealth as 3.6 billion people, according to an analysis by Oxfam released Monday. Presenting its findings on the dawn of the annual gathering of the global political and business elites in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, anti-poverty organization Oxfam says the gap between the very rich and poor is far greater than just a year ago. It's urging leaders to do more than pay...

    22% name Barack Obama as most admired man; 15% name Donald Trump Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman 9th time Obama has won; 21st time for Clinton PRINCETON, N.J. -- Americans are most likely to name President Barack Obama as the man they admire most in 2016. Twenty-two percent mentioned Obama in response to the open-ended question. President-elect Donald Trump was second at 15%. It is Obama's ninth consecutive win, but the seven-percentage-point margin this year is his narrowest victory yet. The results are based on a Dec. 7-11 poll.

    With the election of Donald Trump, Fox News has actually seen ratings grow since November 8. CNN and MSNBC, on the other hand, have watched viewership fall off sharply. “I believe Fox News’ prospects for 2017 to be very strong,” Fox News’ James Murdoch said at a conference this week, adding that ratings “are less down than we expected.” Murdoch also said CNN and MSNBC numbers have dropped “quite a bit more” than Fox’s, partly because they had risen so much more during the campaign. Over the years, the Fox News audience has been more loyal and less prone to...

Here are The Hill’s initial rankings of where the potential candidates stand. 1. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) How would the 2016 election have panned out had Warren challenged Clinton in the primary? That’s one of the great unknowables of Democratic politics.

    Analysts argue that Trump won because Hillary didn’t win like Obama did, or something like that. Obama argues that he was a better campaigner than Hillary was. But across the nation, it was clear that many former Democratic voters backed Trump in key areas. Hillary Clinton has been controversial since college, and nominating her certainly did the Democrats no good. Looking back, you can see that she didn’t promote outlandish things while on the stump. She sounded like an old-time Democrat, a God-fearing white pantsuit-wearing smiler of smilers. It’s just, well, America wasn’t fooled.

In addition to Trump’s victory in the contest to be the 45th President of the United States, the National Rifle Association’s five million members helped retain control of the Senate by backing victorious GOP contenders in Florida, Missouri, Indiana, North Carolina, and Wisconsin (at this time, New Hampshire’s Senate contest between Kelly Ayotte (R) and Maggie Hassan (D) remains too close to call). The House also remains comfortably under the control of the GOP. The NRA pumped more money into...

The four-day run-up until Donald Trump's accepting of the nomination, while giving a strong ratings performance, did not bring any atypical highs for the political meetup. Trump's speech didn't change that narrative by much. With all three broadcast networks and cable news networks now tallied for the 10 p.m. hour, it appears just over 32 million viewers tuned into Trump's extended time on stage. On the broadcast networks alone Thursday night, Trump's time on the stage brought in 12.3 million viewers to the 10 o'clock hour on through the...

    The U.S. is the breast country in the world. American women have the biggest boobs across the globe, with the average babe’s bosom measuring a D-cup (which would be an F in European sizes). The Journal of Female Health Sciences busted out this eye-raising new research after analyzing the volume of breast tissue in 342,000 women ages 28-30 in 108 different countries. They only surveyed ladies who were not pregnant or breastfeeding — and those whose boobs were not surgically enhanced — to get the most natural measurements. “Women born in the U.S.A have by far larger breasts than women...

    The most unaffordable place to live in the US is not San Francisco or Manhattan. It’s Brooklyn. A person earning the average salary in Brooklyn cannot afford the average home there — even if he could spend his entire salary (and then some) on housing, according to a survey released Thursday by real estate firm RealtyTrac, which looked at home sales price data in 417 of the most populous counties in the US as well as average wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The second- and third-most unaffordable places in America are Marin County, Calif., and Santa Cruz,...

    2016 has been breaking records for gun sales since it began.  In fact, records were being broken seven months before 2016 began.  We only have records until the end of May, but they show a clear trend.  If that trend were followed, then 2016 would have set the record for the most American gun sales in a year, ever. But that trend just got bumped, jumped, and Trumped.  It is now taking off like Falcon SpaceX rocket.  The reason, of course, is politics. The fact is, more than half of Americans associate guns with safety.  That trend has been...

    For six weeks, the editors of New York Magazine and Grub Street are publishing a series of definitive lists that declare the absolute best versions of 101 things to eat, drink, and do. Pizza: It’s what New Yorkers are made of. Now, we’re not talking Neapolitan or neo-Neapolitan, deep dish or Detroit-style — not even whole pies. It’s all about the slice, the economical, accessible, on-the-go meal in its many styles: the classic round slice; square in the Sicilian or grandma style; vodka-sauced; with or without toppings, from the minimal (sausage) to the maximal “gourmet” (Buffalo chicken); and so on....

    Below are my picks of the five people most likely to wind up sharing a ticket with Trump. These rankings are based on conversations with Republicans, a study of Trump's public comments about the various people in the VP mix and plain old intuition. 5. Joni Ernst The senator from Iowa has a very bright political future ahead of her. Ernst emerged as a surprising star of the 2014 Senate class with a sterling resume (military background, time spent in state legislature, etc.) and a gift for communicating. She's well-liked by many in the party and is seen as a...

    Many were probably just hoping for a brokered convention to derail the New York businessman. These “experts” were not simply wrong, they were drop-dead wrong. Trump will not only reach the number of delegates it takes to win the nomination outright on Tuesday June 7th, he has won the most primary votes of any GOP presidential candidate in modern history. Based on astute political analysis, who would have guessed? From Gateway Pundit: George W. Bush won 10.8 million votes in the 2000 Republican primary. Donald Trump has won 11.1 million votes so far this year. Donald Trump won Oregon tonight...

    Today Donald J. Trump released the much-anticipated list of people he would consider as potential replacements for Justice Scalia at the United States Supreme Court. This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership. Mr. Trump stated, “Justice Scalia was a remarkable person and a brilliant Supreme Court Justice. His career was defined by his reverence for the Constitution and his legacy of protecting Americans’ most cherished freedoms. He was a Justice who did not believe in legislating from the bench and he is a person whom I...
