Today’s selection of articles includes:

  1. Is the Affordable Care Act working?“, by Troy Griggs, Haeyoun Park, Alicia Parlapiano, Sona Patel, Karl Russel, & R. Smith (NY Times). A clear overview of the ACA’s impact to date.
  2. The spy who told me: Asia is where the real trouble is at“, by John McLaughlin (OZY). Why China’s saber-rattling merits top attention from US officials.
  3. To improve a memory, consider chocolate“, by Pam Belluck (NY Times). Two words to remember: cocoa flavanols. I’m not sure why the article conflates chocolate with candy bars; chocolate exists in several other (and, dare I say, better) forms.
  4. Kissing business acquaintances“, by B.R. (The Economist).
