|The Latest: Czech company: Our engine wasn't used in attack ||Matthew Berry's Love/Hate for Week 3: A little perspective |
A Czech company whose small jet engine is believed to have been used in a cruise missile that attacked a key Saudi Arabian oil installation says it was a low-quality copy, not their genuine product. Marek Fiala, marketing director PBS Velka Bites, a unit of the PBS Group, said: "We have nothing to do with this case and we feel damaged by the fact that we are linked to it," in a statement sent Wednesday to The Associated Press. The Czech company says that it believes the engine in the missile "is not a product made in Velka Bites," the Czech town where the PBS TJ100 engines are manufactured.

(Bloomberg) -- Pete Buttigieg unveiled a “Medicare for All Who Want It” plan on Thursday that would create a government-run option but also allows consumers to keep their private insurance.The proposal parallels the “Medicare for Choice” plan of presidential front-runner Joe Biden and offers a sharp contrast to Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All,” which would end private coverage.Buttigieg’s proposal “doesn’t force Americans off private plans they may want to keep, but offers them a meaningful public alternative,” his campaign said.The South Bend, Indiana, mayor proposed bolstering Obamacare subsidies, capping premium payments at 8.5% of income and limiting out-of-pocket costs for seniors on Medicare.His campaign estimated the plan would cost about $1.5 trillion over 10 years and would be paid for by cost savings on provider payments as well as an overhaul of the corporate tax code that would raise revenue.COMING UPMSNBC will host a seven-hour climate change forum on Thursday and Friday.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
