    The Astonishing World of Virtual Reality

    The Astonishing World of Virtual Reality

    Virtual Reality for many is an escape from the perils of life and into a new world filled with a digital experience. VR to many seems like a new form of technology only appearing recently with tech companies such as Oculus working to provide an affordable gaming experience. However, VR can be traced back to 1950 when Morton Heilig introduced the idea of an Experienced Theater combining all senses in one experience to provide an immersive story-telling experience. The Sensorama was born, containing smells, sound, vibration, 3-D visuals, and wind. People realized this was a real possibility and thus the world of Virtual Reality began to bloom.

    Medicare For All: A Comprehensive Study

    Millions of Americans attend the doctors every year; however, hundreds of thousands go bankrupt each year due to medical bills, and the issue is only increasing causing concern. According to a recent AJPH study, the American Journal of Public Health which focuses on health policy and public health, states that there are around 530,000 bankruptcies due to medical bills annually. This leaves many Americans with great financial struggle which can often lead to decreased emotional well-being. In fact, according to a study from the University of Princeton, “High income improves evaluation of life but not emotional well-being” by Daniel Kahneman and Angus Deaton, states that money does not equal increased happiness, but less money is frequently associated with emotional pain. In recent years democratic politicians such as Bernie Sanders have proposed plans to expand healthcare to all, but faces a lot of opposition from both Democrats and Republicans and has been a recent subject of debate in the recent 2020 election cycle. So with many Americans facing issues with paying for medical bills, and thus an overall decrease in emotional wellbeing, how would Bernie Sanders’s policy of Medicare For All affect the United States? And what opposition does it face, and why?
