    Amazon Device May Be Able to Read Your Emotions

    Amazon is working on a voice-activated device aimed at recognizing your emotions. The wrist-worn gadget is described as a health and wellness product, but could very well help the e-commerce behemoth target you for advertising. Andrew Mach speaks to Bloomberg News technology reporter Matt Day on the tech giant's move to wearable (and very personal) technology and the potential privacy concerns if the device ever makes it to market.

    Trump Impeachment Calls Grow Louder

    Trump Impeachment Calls Grow Louder

    Impeachment is having yet another moment on Capitol Hill, as Democrats look for a way to enforce what they consider their constitutional duty to investigate the Trump White House. In a surprise Rose Garden speech Wednesday, President Trump said he could no longer work with Democrats until they stop their investigations into his administration and finances. Meanwhile, Democrats argue impeachment is the answer because he's holding up those investigations. Andrew Mach speaks to Bloomberg News congressional correspondent Billy House about the temper tantrums on both sides of the aisle and the road ahead.

    Insurers Miss Mark on Mental Health

    Insurers Miss Mark on Mental Health

    May is Mental Health Awareness month, but the U.S. is in the midst of a mental health crisis. More than a decade ago, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act was passed, requiring insurers to provide comparable coverage for mental health and medical treatments. But insurers are missing the mark - denying claims, limiting coverage, and finding other ways to skate around the law.
