A selling point in any national political contest between opposing parties has always been if the party in power has kept people safe. Not so much on the international stage but within its own borders. The GOP like to say that the Democrats have made the country less safe and continually claim the country is more violent now than ever before. However, the data doesn’t show that scenario. In fact, it shows a different reality that bucks “alternative facts;” Do you know where Myanmar is? A recent UN report finds it’s a country worse off than believed; Every week, there is a headline about gun deaths. A new analysis finds that the majority of gun deaths aren’t from what we think; A global event is occurring in our oceans and scientists don’t like it one bit; Think blinking your eyes is sexy? Or just necessary to keep our eyeballs wet? Seems there’s an even more important reason that we just never knew; and While we all embraced remote working, there’s a dark underside that many don’t even think about — until it’s too late. Go beyond the headlines…
