1998 “While the House voted and the bombs fell, the president prayed,” Newsweek wrote in the wake of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment on December 19, 1998 for “perjury and obstruction of justice.” Now, “he would be known by a harsh, rarely used word: ‘impeached.’” Clinton became the second president to be formally impeached by Congress—the first was Andrew Johnson in 1868. Only two other U.S. presidents have faced formal impeachment inquiries in the House: Richard Nixon in 1974 and now, Donald Trump regarding whether he sought help from Ukraine for his re-election. 1941 “Air-raid alarms along the Atlantic Seaboard last week raised a breath-taking question in the minds of its inhabitants: Can the Axis bomb New York and other points on the East Coast?” Newsweek examined the aerial theater of war as America…

ice and snow time

Rovaniemi, a city in Finland located at the Arctic Circle, sent its most famous resident, Santa Claus, to Beijing to attend the 2019 World Winter Sports (Beijing) Expo in October. He was one of the busiest people at the event. Donning Santa’s signature red cap and magnificent white beard, an actor introduced his town to visitors. “In my hometown, it is already winter, “the actor said. “The ground is covered with snow and 2 to 3 centimeters of ice.” Rovaniemi is one of the most famous winter sports resorts in Finland and boasts a wide variety of top-quality training facilities.

why it pays to share how much you make

SOME FASCINATING GOOGLE DOCS HAVE BEEN making the rounds lately—spreadsheets where people who work in various positions in different industries share how much they’re paid. “Talking about how much or how little money you make feels taboo, and it shouldn’t,” begins one document, featuring statistics from 1,000-plus journalists, including many at the nation’s top media organizations. “Knowledge is power…so let’s share what we make and any relevant info to help each other learn our worth!” Similar spreadsheets exist for people who work in the book publishing, advertising and paralegal fields, as well as for employees of museums and cafés. For anyone who works outside those industries, what’s most interesting is not so much who earns what, but the very fact that so many professionals are willing to share their information: how…

DO YOU TRUST AMAZON WITH YOUR LIFE? You might have to, because the big tech companies of Silicon Valley are looking to do for medicine what they’ve already done for retail, publishing, finance and other sectors of modern life: they want to bring on another digital revolution. What could go wrong? Ever since the Federal government began encouraging health care providers to adopt electronic health records a decade ago, Apple, Google and a slew of Silicon Valley startups have sought to bring about their own vision of telemedicine—turbocharged by data from wearable health-monitoring devices, artificial intelligence and smartphone apps. Apple’s bio-monitoring watches and Fitbit, the wearable exercise monitor recently bought by Google, are two prominent examples of products in the market now. Other companies are readying artificial-intelligence products that could augment or…
