The NHS is not fit for the future' and unless it undergoes radical change it may be forced to abandon free healthcare for all, in the future, the service's top doctor has warned.
Medical director of NHS England Professor Sir Bruce Keogh said the NHS must become far less reliant on hospitals and needed a complete transformation' of the way it operates.
Sir Bruce told the Guardian: If the NHS continues to function as it does now, it's going to really struggle to cope because the model of delivery and service that we have at the moment is not fit for the future.'
A federal judge in Pennsylvania has released an opinion in a case of a deported illegal alien who returned to the U.S. that appears to torpedo the amnesty plan President Obama announced Nov. 20 and implemented through memos to government officials, ruling it unconstitutional.
"President Obama's unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional," said U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab.
The judge noted Obama "contended that although legislation is the most appropriate course of action to solve the immigration debate, his executive action was necessary because of Congress's failure to pass legislation, acceptable to him, in this regard."
"This proposition is arbitrary and does not negate the requirement that the November 20, 2014, executive action be lawfully within the president's executive authority," the judge wrote. "It is not."
Tropical forests are growing faster than scientists thought due to rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
A Nasa-led study has found that tropical forests are absorbing 1.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year as they photosynthesise and grow.
And this is far more than is absorbed by the vast areas of boreal forest that encircle the Arctic.
All of the net gains in in jobs since 2007 have gone to immigrants -- both legal and illegal -- according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies, meaning that fewer native-born Americans are working today than were at the end of 2007.
From November 2007 through November 2014, the number of employed native-born Americans has decreased more than 1.45 million, while the number of employed immigrants has risen by more than 2 million (as the immigrant population grew rapidly, too), according to data compiled by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In a video produced by Campus Reform, students at George Washington University gleefully sign a petition to deport U.S. citizens in return for providing citizenship to illegal immigrants.
"Please sign our petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen, in exchange for one undocumented immigrant," read the petition. "Everyone must be allowed a shot at the American Dream.' Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another's dreams come true."
According to the campus activism organization, about two-thirds of the students they spoke with in an hour agreed to sign the petition.
"It makes sense," one student said. "Like, I've noticed that there is a lot of like hatred against undocumented immigrants and it's not necessarily their fault."
