Showtime websites used visitors’ browsers to mine cryptocurrency 

It’s unclear who introduced the JavaScript into the websites – it could’ve been a hacker, it could’ve been Showtime or its parent company CBS, though the latter seems less likely.

Ah the good ol’ hacker is such an easy scapegoat. That mysterious Ninja that attacks at night and installs spurious JavaScript. The scourge of the inter-tubes. I’m guessing it was Showtime and that this is really easy to figure out from their version control system.

Here’s your Graham-Cassidy cheat sheet, as GOP scrambles for votes 

Graham-Cassidy wouldn’t eliminate Obamacare’s requirement that insurance companies cover people with pre-existing conditions, and it wouldn’t let states seek a waiver from that provision, either.

But it would let insurers charge people with pre-existing conditions far more than people without them — which is illegal under current law. The new version would also let states raise Obamacare’s cap on out-of-pocket costs. Together, those and other efforts to deregulate the insurance markets could effectively prevent people with expensive health conditions from obtaining coverage, even if it were technically available.

This is called a hustle.
