top Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina Considering US Presidential Run
Presumable he is referring to this:
One of the ACA architects has stated that:
A) the bill was written in such a way so that the CBO did not interpret the fine's as Taxes.
b) said : “In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in—you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, okay. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to passLook, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
this was in the news recently.

The american left is a pretty strange coalition. Many of the subgroups within the coalition have opposing interests and are only united by the fact that they are anti-republican. If the republican party is disolved, it will be interesting to see how if the democrats can stay unitied.

Probably because we spend more than before?
Productivity is way up since the 1950s. If you were to live according to a 1950's lifestyle including miles driven, size of home, vacation travel, amount of times going out to eat, drop internet, CATV, cell phones etc, you could save an enormous amount of money. Invest it in some index funds or take a dividend growth approproach and you would be pretty rich.

top Washington Redskins Stripped of Trademarks
This is not the first time this has occured. Last time, the federal circuit overturned the PTAB's decision as they had determined that the plantiff's had waited too long before filing as the Redskin's trademark had been around for years.
I would presume that the NFL would wind up making a similiar argument during an appeal as this trademark has existed for years.

Have any players been banned for life for causing physical harm?
Nope, Javaris Crittenton is currently involved in the legal system for murder. Gilbert Arenas pulled a gun on another player over a dispute in the lockerroom.
There are a number of other examples, but I guess causing actual harm is less bad for the NBA than embarrasing the NBA and its sponsors.

There are plenty of places in PG, Fairfax, Montgomery, and Arlington for under 500 a month. My wife was making 19k a year as a UMD grad student just a few years ago and was renting rooms in Silver Spring and Gaithersburg for $300 a month. Somehow she saved 10k a year. After she got a real job, she paid about the same for a room in Philly near the italian market.
You can get signifigant savings if you are frugal and put the effort into it. Most people don't put the effort or feel entitled. They then go into debt or buy stuff they don't need which makes investors wealthy.

What did you pay $500 for?
My inlaws are visiting from overseas so no insurance but:
$40 for a check up
$80 for x-rays $20 for anti-biotics
All in cash.
Later we found out that we could have gotten it all for free via the county health department. I guess it depends on what you are getting treated for.

top JPMorgan Files Patent Application On 'Bitcoin Killer'
Anyone check the IDS?
Applicant has a duty to disclose (See MPEP 2001) any and all prior art that they are aware of at the time of filing.
Per MPEP 2001.01
(c) Individuals associated with the filing or prosecution of a patent application within the meaning of this section are:
(1) Each inventor named in the application; (2) Each attorney or agent who prepares or prosecutes the application; and (3) Every other person who is substantively involved in the preparation or prosecution of the application and who is associated with the inventor, with the assignee or with anyone to whom there is an obligation to assign the application. *****
Individuals having a duty of disclosure are limited to those who are “substantively involved in the preparation or prosecution of the application.” This is intended to make clear that the duty does not extend to typists, clerks, and similar personnel who assist with an application.

top Pinch-To-Zoom Apple Patent Rejected By USPTO
Duty to disclose is only for art that applicant is aware of or believes is reasonably pertanant to the current application. This is why you see information disclosure statements which may have references cited in other pending cases, but may have nothing to do with the current claimset.
If applicant searches and finds new art then they should disclose it in a later IDS. Strangely applicants do cite prior art which reads on their claims and may be found by a foreign office, but do not ammend the claims to get around the prior art until a US examiner writes a rejection. This seems counter to the various compact prosection practices that the office and AIPLA advocate and may cost applicant more money.
