Just when birth control for men seems to be making vast improvements.

Trump officials weigh fate of birth-control mandate

The era of free birth control for women could be coming to an end.

The requirement that insurance companies cover contraception at no cost is believed to be on the chopping block now that Tom Price has taken over the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Price opposed the mandate as a member of Congress and could take aim at the regulation — and other rules related to ObamaCare — as Republicans in Congress move to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.


Politics as usual.

Thousands demonstrated in Paris and other French cities Sunday to protest corruption, taking aim specifically at presidential candidates Francois Fillon and Marine Le Pen, both accused of misusing public funds.

“To jail with the corrupt” and “Down with the privileged” read placards brandished on the Place de la Republique, the vast square in central Paris which has long hosted huge protests.

Conservative candidate Fillon has been mired in scandal since last month when it emerged that his wife netted at least 680,000 euros ($720,000) for a suspected fake job as a parliamentary assistant over a period spanning 15 years.

Two of Fillon’s children were also put on the parliamentary payroll for brief periods.

Removing even well paying more construction jobs.

Having spent most of my life on the edges of construction sites, I find this depressing. But I understand that it is progress. Better – faster -stronger- more efficient.
Society faces enormous challenges in constructing high-quality, future-oriented built environments. Construction sites today look much like the building sites did at the beginning of the 20th century. Current research on digital fabrication in architecture indicates that the development and integration of innovative digital technologies within architectural and construction processes could transform the building industry — on the verge of a building industry 4.0. Digital technologies in architecture and construction could increase productivity creating new jobs.
