There is no evidence here that Medicaid coverage leads to reductions in utilization in other dimensions. In fact, Medicaid coverage makes people more likely to visit the Emergency Department, and increases their number of visits relative to their baseline.
In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Pat Michaels and Chip Knappenberger explain the real science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: global warming is not hot—it’s lukewarm. Climate change is real, it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated—with many predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible. This new paperback edition of the book is an expanded edition of last year’s ebook-only edition of Lukewarming, and includes updates in science and policy following the accords reached at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

Until Proven Innocent: Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case
Featuring the coauthor Stuart Taylor Jr, Senior Writer, National Journal’ with comments by Victoria Toensing, Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division, Justice Department.
The Duke lacrosse rape case, which dominated cable news shows for months, turned out to be one of the most shameful episodes of prosecutorial abuse in recent memory. More than that, it exposed the soft underbelly of both the academy and the media—the rush to judgment by people obsessed with class, race, and gender politics. Stuart Taylor, one of the nation’s foremost legal journalists, and Prof. KC Johnson have just now drawn the vast material that surrounded the case into a riveting narrative that George Will called a “scalding and disturbing book on America’s civic culture” and John Grisham said “smothers any lingering doubt that in this country the presumption of innocence is dead.” Please join us for a discussion of this important new book.
