It's been too long since I made a roundup, and I have MANY ARTICLES to link. Here's the first half, which is all healthcare-related. This is pretty much all news/analysis.

* Is Trumpcare already here? (Politico)

* Something new for the Minnesota Legislature: a caucus of first Minnesotans (MinnPost)

* Left out of AHCA fight, Democrats let their grass roots lead — and win (WaPo)

* Sanders, Democrats rally thousands across the country to save Obamacare (Chicago Trib, Jan 2016)

* Will Obamacare Really Explode? (Politico). Interview with Kaiser Family Foundation health care expert Larry Leavitt.

* Inside the GOP’s Health Care Debacle: Eighteen days that shook the Republican Party—and humbled a president (Politic). Nice summary of events and what went wrong.

* The Republican Waterloo (Atlantic). AHCA post-mortem by conservative David Frum, who's watched his moderate views be completely eclipsed in recent years by the far right. Very interesting perspective from the other side.

* HHS Inspector General Confirms Investigation of Trump Administration Suspension of Affordable Care Act Outreach Efforts (press release from Sen. Warren). I'm not sure what this might amount to, if anything, but it seems hopeful?

* How Republicans quietly sabotaged Obamacare long before Trump came into office (Salon)

* The GOP’s top priority is in trouble (WaPo). Explanation of some of the difficulties in making the tax cuts GOP wants and how the AHCA was supposed to smooth the way for some of them.

* President Trump's healthcare plate is full, and it won't go down easy (Modern Healthcare). Laundry list of health-related issues Trump + Congress will be dealing with this year, not just ACA.

* GOP senator acknowledges Americans’ ‘right’ to health care (MSNBC)

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

Hello, everyone! We hope the writing is going well. It’s time for some housekeeping and general reminders.

Second, on 2 April, we’ll open a post here for the mandatory check-in. By 8 April, you must leave a simple comment on that post to let us know you’re still committed to the exchange. Anyone who doesn’t comment will be defaulted automatically at the end of the check-in period.

If you’ll be unable to check in with us during that time, please contact us in advance at fandom5kmod@gmail.com.

Third, a quick reminder that if you’re looking for a beta or cheerleader, or you’re interested in beta-reading or cheerleading for someone else, the beta post is here.

And, finally, a huge thank-you to our pinch hitters! We have two pinch hits outstanding. You can check them out and sign up at this post.

Black cockatoos

Christmas Eve last year:

Went outside my parents' house and heard a bird call that didn't fit. Took me a minute to realise that it was a yellow-tailed black cockatoo call. Not something I normally hear/see near my parents' house in Australia. Quickly grabbed my sis' camera with her awesome zoom lens to get photos, as the two cockatoos were pretty high in the banksia (I think) tree.

One of the biggest differences that the IDW Jem series has done is change the LOOK of the characters, not just updating them but varying the bodyshapes significantly, and none moreso than that of Stormer.

Misfits 2 000.jpg

The original series, designed as it was to sell toys, used the generic bodytype of the doll line. It varied the charatcers, but everyone had the same shape. (One character, who wouldn't have had a doll, was Techrat, was originally intended to be deliberately androgynous, but ended up being definitely male).

The new series has given us Rubenesque Stormer, a more pear-shaped Shana, and a definitely buff Roxy, and it's just been accepted from the get go. How realistic that is, is another story, and this issue looks into it from Stormer's POV

Warning: This issue contains body shaming and fatphobia.

Here's another example of why I think Paul Jenkins is one of the most underrated Spidey writers around.
