Some links, from last week, for your reading pleasure this week.

MinnPost, a non-profit online publication, profiles (and debunks) Minnesota’s uninsured population.  Quite interesting, not at all what I thought.

There’s a country more obese than the United States: Australia.  PSFK reports on the government’s response involving measuring tapes, the easy to remember phrase “green for lean, red for spread,” and $30 million.

The X PRIZE Foundation and WellPoint are offering a $10 million prize if you can improve quality and lower costs in American health care.  I’m a big fan of the idea, though I think a better approach would be to offer smaller prizes with specific desired outcomes.
