It’s been a busy weekend at the WYM headquarters and so we’ve curated a slightly shorter list of stories worth your attention.

1/ Healthcare Reform Gives Senate Run For It's Money
Senate Republicans finally unveiled their version of the healthcare reform bill last week, fast-tracked for a vote this week just before the summer recess. Remember that one time the House tried to pass an Obamacare reform bill and couldn’t muster enough Republicans to pass the bill?  At least 8 GOP Senators have indicated they are unlikely to support the bill (and Republicans can only lose 2 of those votes to still pass the bill).

2/ Amazon Buys Whole Foods
Amazon bought a grocery chain that would help make it the 4th largest grocery brand in the United States, backed by one of the most powerful technology companies in the world. You don’t think there is about to be a huge disruption in the food industry, do you?

3/ Stuck in Scandal
Having watched enough thousands of hours of news in my life, I’ve come to learn that the truth usually falls somewhere in the middle of what you think, and what you least expect. Which is why I read both of these articles with equal weight when it comes to the still ongoing (and going to be going on for a while) Russia investigation.

4/ A Program That Can Lie
Contrary to what sci-fi tv would have you to believe, we’re still pretty early in the big picture of advanced computing and Artifical Intelligence. However, Facebook this open sourced the code they had written for a bot that could negotiate, lie, and bargain with another person. Nope, not scary at all.
