In OtherWords: June 28, 2017

Here are two interesting numbers: The Senate health care bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, would throw 22 million more Americans off their insurance over the next decade alone, the Congressional Budget Office estimates.

Tory-DUP deal promises British soldiers won't be prosecuted for N. Ireland 'Troubles' killings

Nestled in the agreement between the Tories and the Democratic Unionist Party is a promise to draft a law to protect British security forces from prosecution over killings committed during the 30-year so-called 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland.

The contentious promise is contained in a section of the document, published Monday, entitled Legacy, which states that:



"The UK government will work with the Executive and all parties to seek the implementation of the legacy bodies in the Stormont House Agreement, to provide better outcomes for victims and survivors."

Dead heads: Turkish site reveals more evidence of neolithic 'skull cult'

Fragments of carved bone unearthed at an ancient site on a Turkish hillside are evidence that the people who spent time there belonged to a neolithic "skull cult"  -  a group that embraces rituals around the heads of the dead.

The remains were uncovered during field work at Göbekli Tepe, an 11,000-year-old site in the south-east of the country, where thousands of pieces of human bone were found, including sections of skulls bearing grooves, holes and the occasional dab of ochre.

Pieces of three adult skulls recovered from the sitehave hallmarks of being carved with flint after being scalped and defleshed first. Evidence that the latter was not always an effortless affair is found in multiple scrape marks where the muscles once attached to the bone.

But the intentional carvings look very different to other marks on the skulls. "The carvings are very deep lines in the bone and are definitely intended," said Julia Gresky at the German Archaeological Institute in Berlin. "It's the first evidence we have for carved human skulls anywhere."

'Wake-up call': US Pacific Command admiral warns of ISIS danger in Pacific

The spread of Islamic State to the Philippines should be a "wake-up call" for US allies in the Pacific and require a new regional partnership, according to the admiral in charge of US Pacific Command (USPACOM).

Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) fighters from Syria and Iraq are providing resources and ideology to homegrown radicals on the island of Mindanao, resulting in the weeks-long battle with the Philippines military in the city of Marawi, Admiral Harry B. Harris Jr. said in Australia on Wednesday.

"Marawi is a wake-up call for every nation in the Indo-Asia Pacific," Harris said at an Australian Strategic Policy Institute event in Brisbane, Queensland. "These terrorists are using combat tactics that we've seen in the Middle East to kill in the city of Marawi, in Mindanao, the first time ISIS-inspired forces have banded together to fight on this kind of scale."
