Water Crisis in Flint, Michigan

A state of emergency exists for the city of Flint, Michigan because for nearly two years, people have been drinking, bathing in, washing their clothes and cooking with a water supply that is polluted by lead. And, their government is 100% to blame. How is it that a city of roughly 100,000 people ended up with an undrinkable water supply? In short, the financial crash of 2008 caused an already weakened Flint to nearly collapse, resulting the Michigan state government taking over. In an effort to save money, the Michigan Governor and his staff chose to temporarily move the main water supply for Flint from Lake Huron to the Flint River. They knew that the river was polluted and corrosive, requiring the water to be treated daily with an anti-corrosive agent to be used for human consumption. The cost would be roughly $100 per day. Officials chose not treat the river water, and made the switch without further testing.

Motorcycle Helmets Save Lives

Helmet usage on motorcycles has been a long debated issue. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), only 19 states mandate that all motorcycle riders wear helmets. IIHS also states, "Helmets are about 37 percent effective in preventing motorcycle deaths and about 67 percent effective in preventing brain injuries." This seems like a pretty good reason for motorcyclists to wear a helmet. Yet trends are moving towards states repealing motorcycle helmet mandates and allowing riders to choose.
