Cuba's infant mortality rate, at 4.3 per 1,000, is lower than the United States’ 5.7 per 1,000, according to the World Health Organization’s 2015 data. And Cuba’s rate is much better than the infant mortality rates in some of the poorest parts of the U.S. In the Englewood neighborhood, for instance, 14.5 babies per 1,000 do not reach their 1st birthday. That’s a rate comparable to war-torn Syria.

Dorothy Brown runs out of excuses on e-filing – Editorial – Chicago Tribune

For 17 years — starting with her first bid for office in 2000 — Brown has been promising to modernize the filing system in the nation’s largest unified court system. Every election cycle, she boasts about how much she’s done and vows to finish the job soon. Yet last year, more than 60 percent of the county’s 178,000 civil filings were on paper. And the ones that are filed electronically might as well be on paper, because the digital documents aren’t immediately accessible. “Brown has not explained why she cannot implement any of the measures other state and federal courts have taken to provide access to e-filed complaints,” Kennelly wrote in granting a preliminary injunction instructing the clerk to make the filings available.
