Electrofunk phenom GRiZ continues to turn heads with his energetic blend of saxophone and production, and today he’s returned with a brand new track. The new offering sees GRiZ partner with soul singer and pianist Leo Napier, who wrote the new original tune “Before I Go.” Though the song deals with the heavy subject of addiction, its an infectious groove that showcases the stripped down style of Napier with the hyped-up energy that only GRiZ can bring to the table.GRiZ describes the track in his social media post, saying: “This song is about addiction and letting go. Leo did an amazing job writing and I’m happy I was able to bring this to life. It really hits home to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as it has helped me.”Listen to the new jam below.
Read Full Story A work requirement policy imposed by the state of Arkansas on Medicaid participants failed to achieve its stated goal of boosting employment, according to new research led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Instead, the policy harmed health care coverage and access, the study found.Under Arkansas’ requirements, which were implemented in the summer of 2018, adults ages 30–49 had to work 20 hours a week, participate in “community engagement” activities, or qualify for an exemption to maintain coverage. A federal judge paused the program in April 2019, but 18,000 adults had already lost Medicaid coverage as a result.For the study, which was published in Health Affairs and discussed in a KATV news segment on Sept. 10, researchers led by Benjamin Sommers, professor of health policy and economics at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, analyzed data collected through telephone surveys with 2,706 low-income adults in Arkansas and three control states.The researchers found that people who lost their coverage experienced adverse consequences and economic hardship. The study showed that 50 percent reported serious problems paying off medical debt, 56 percent delayed care because of cost, and 64 percent delayed taking medications because of cost.
