US: Lack of paper trail a concern amid fears of election hacking
17 May 2018 - As the midterm congressional primaries heat up amid fears of Russian hacking, roughly 1 in 5 Americans will be casting ballots on machines that do not produce a paper record of their votes.

Disruption of daily rhythms linked to mental health problems

Night owls were 88 percent more likely to have emotional and behavioral problems than other teens and 25 percent more likely to have poor mental health. (more)

Most young adults have little confidence that government safety-net programs will be there for them as they get older, and they're not too sure about their own financial situation, either. Only 16 percent of younger adults are very confident that they'll have the financial resources to deal with their own care needs when they get older. (more)
