Anonymous Declares War on Donald Trump

“This is a declaration of total war.”

Hacktivist collective Anonymous has doubled down on its war against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. In 2015, Anonymous issued a stern warning to Trump after he announced that he’d ban Muslims from entering the United States. “Donald Trump, think twice before you speak anything. You have been warned,” the masked spokesperson said. The group then took down Trump Tower’s website by overwhelming its servers. Previously, Anonymous had launched cyber attacks on ISIS, the Westboro Baptist Church, and the Ku Klux Klan.


Today, Anonymous declared “total war” on Trump, calling for “hacktivists around the world” to “shut down his websites” and “research and expose what he doesn’t want the public to know.” The group’s goal is to “dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand,” and it promises to start by shutting down his Trump Chicago website on April 1, 2016—April Fool’s Day.

Here’s an excerpt from their call to arms.

“Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time and what we see is deeply disturbing. Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America, you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas. You say what your current audience wants to hear, but in reality, you don’t stand for anything except for your personal greed and power.”

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

Cancer is still the second leading cause of death after heart disease for both men and women. The American Cancer Society predicts that 2020 will bring almost 1.8 million new cancer cases and 600,000 cancer deaths, but there's also some good news. The American Cancer Society recently published a report in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians stating the U.S. cancer death rates experienced the largest-single year decline ever reported.

Between 2016 and 2017, cancer death rates fell by 2.2%. While cancer death rates have been steadily falling over the past three decades, it's normally by 1.5% a year. Cancer death rates have dropped by 29% since 1991, which means that there have been 2.9 million fewer cancer deaths in the past three decades than there would have been if the mortality rate had remained constant.

In order to celebrate the New York Public Library's 125th anniversary, the library announced a list of the top 10 most checked out books in the library's history. The list, which took six months to compile, was determined by a team of experts who looked at the "historic checkout and circulation data" for all formats of the book. Ezra Jack Keats's "The Snow Day" tops the list, having been checked out 485,583 times through June 2019. While many children's books topped the top 10 list, the number one choice is significant because the main character of the story is black. "It's even more amazing that the top-ranked book is a book that has that element of diversity," New York Public Library President Anthony W. Marx said.
