Michigan State expects improved PG play this year but starting job still uncertain
INDIANAPOLIS – Tom Izzo is convinced his team will have improved point guard play this year, after uneven play at the position bogged down the Spartans throughout last season.

Warren's 'Medicare for All' would cost some of our employees their jobs, top health exec says
Bernard Tyson, chairman and CEO of managed-care firm Kaiser Permanente, told CNBC on Monday that presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren's "Medicare for All" proposal could force some of his employees out of their jobs.

Warren said Friday her Medicare for All proposal would cost "just under" the estimated cost of the current system, which is $52 trillion over a decade.cnbc.com
