Why should we care about Crimea?

Beyond the question of what exactly the Western powers expect of Russia and how likely it is that Russia will meet those expectations there is a more fundamental question that should be asked. Why should the west care what happens with Crimea? What US national interests, for example, are at stake there?

When Cutting Profits Makes Sense

Matt Miguelena worked at Healthcare Corporation of America (HCA), one of America’s largest healthcare companies, for nearly two decades before opting out to set up his own venture. Disillusioned with the increasing monetization of healthcare, in 2007 he created Allied Healthcare Professionals, a home health agency in California that focuses on doing healthcare “the old-school way,” he says.
