    By ALEXIS ZOTOS 6 News Reporter KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Next week is the deadline for most people who qualify to sign up for the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. But alternatives exist to either traditional insurance or the plans offered through the health insurance exchange. Hundreds of thousands of Americans participate in Christian healthcare sharing ministries across the country. Sarah Lewis is self employed and for years paying for health insurance was a financial burden. "My husband and I own our own business and the cost of insurance was so high and they kept raising it. So we...

    It's gotten little attention, but it's true: The individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act requires all Americans to have health insurance or face penalties, but members of medical-sharing ministries are exempt from the individual mandate that will be enforced beginning in 2015. It's there because of the work of then-Congressmen Tom Perriello, a Virginia Democrat and Sens. Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, and Republican Charles Grassley of Iowa, who fought to add the exemption to the law. It's the same principle that allowed for the Amish to be exempted from the individual mandate—with the crucial difference that it's a...

    FULL TITLE: Netflix customers' ENTIRE movie rental history to be shared with Facebook... including all your guilty pleasures Netflix users will soon be able to share every film they have watched with their Facebook friends - allowing the social networking giant even more lucrative information on its users' leisure time. Up until now the Video Privacy Protection Act prohibited Netflix and other streaming services such as Hulu from sharing their customers' history or allowing them to post it themselves. However, Congress has now passed a bill to the 1988 act that allows users to opt in or out of forthcoming...
  • Vanity: Enemy of the State

    My wife and I were at my parents for Thanksgiving, along with my sister. During dinner conversation, we discovered my sister was an enthusiastic Obama supporter. Unfortunately, the conversation ended up in a long political argument. My parents refused to say how they voted, but it was pretty obvious they're drinking the Koolaide too, along with my brother, who wasn't there. As you can imagine, I've been thinking a lot about this since. There's more than a little bit of regret I have from the conversation, but beyond that, I think it was the first time I've actually come face...

    On a conference call this afternoon the FBI announced a reversal of their decision to cut off the intelligence sharing of information from the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC). The FBI shut down reporting to the 77 fusion centers on March 1st, and we reported on the shutdown yesterday. The FBI had announced that they would be resuming the TSC reporting, but without the Personal Information Intelligence (PII) that fusion centers had previously had access to (as I updated on the article yesterday afternoon). Fusion center officials had said yesterday that resuming the TSC reports without the PII would be

    World governments have failed to finalise a deal on sharing vaccines and virus research material in the event of a global flu pandemic. The World Health Organisation says they've reached agreement on most elements at the two-day meeting in Geneva but some key issues are still to be resolved. These include the sharing of data between labs and intellectual property rights on viruses, issues made more important by the swine flu strain that's now infected eight and a half thousand people in 38 countries.

    The Little Red Hen A Little Red Hen lived in a barnyard. She spent almost all of her time walking about the barnyard in her picketty-pecketty fashion, scratching everywhere for worms. She dearly loved fat, delicious worms and felt they were absolutely necessary to the health of her children. As often as she found a worm she would call "Chuck-chuck-chuck!" to her chickies. When they were gathered about her, she would distribute choice morsels of her tid-bit. A busy little body was she! A cat usually napped lazily in the barn door, not even bothering herself to scare the rat...

    New federal legislation says universities must agree to provide not just deterrents but also "alternatives" to peer-to-peer piracy, such as paying monthly subscription fees to the music industry for their students, on penalty of losing all financial aid for their students. The U.S. House of Representatives bill (PDF), which was introduced late Friday by top Democratic politicians, could give the movie and music industries a new revenue stream by pressuring schools into signing up for monthly subscription services such as Ruckus and Napster. Ruckus is advertising-supported, and Napster charges a monthly fee per student. The Motion Picture Association of America...

The Defense Agency was due to publish its report on Aug. 5, but U.S. demanded it to withhold the detailed intelligence, which delayed writing and publication of the report.

    LOWER BURRELL, Pa. -- A Lower Burrell school student is facing a three-day suspension for sharing gum with a classmate. Jolt chewing gum has caffeine and ginseng. The Lower Burrell school superintendent said consuming and passing out the gum violates the school's drug awareness policy. That's because caffeine is considered a stimulant. Parents told Channel 11 they did not understand the suspension. Resident Elizabeth Grombacher said, "I think it's stupid. Everything's getting too politically correct it's so wrong." "It's probably just like Mountain Dew or something like that. If it's got a lot of caffeine in it and they probably...
