John Oliver exposes the rehab money-making scheme - Alltop Viral

John Oliver took a week off of Donald Trump to expose another critical problem in the United States: the lack of oversight of rehabilitation centers. These centers, as Oliver points out, operate without any real oversight and exist solely for one purpose––making money. Centers take in anyone they can, sometimes even cruising down the street looking for homeless drug addicts who happen to have insurance, and provide sub-par and unproven care in ex...

You might not have noticed it, but supposedly Google has started to roll out Youtube Music on Tuesday. At least that's what they are claiming in this blog post though so far I haven't seen a single post of anyone actually having received it. Not one. As much as I enjoy some of Google's products, but they are so embarrassingly bad in launching new products it's unbelievable. What we want is: An announcement and immediate availability in all countries (where possible). What we get is: A pre-announcement, an announcement, some more waiting, prior access for some users and then some more countries at a later, not specified date.

There are also some racial themes that require background knowledge; f0r example, one of Childish Gambino's poses looks like a Jim Crow era poster.
