Pediatricians call for more federal aid to fight RSV wave | app https://welcometopoole.co.uk/pediatricians-call-for-more-federal-aid-to-fight-rsv-wave-app/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 18:47:13 +0000 https://welcometopoole.co.uk/pediatricians-call-for-more-federal-aid-to-fight-rsv-wave-app/

WASHINGTON — After two winters spent masked and 6 feet away, pediatric respiratory viruses have returned with a vengeance, and pediatric hospitals, ER doctors and pediatricians are pressuring Congress and the Biden administration to provide more support .

Children’s hospitals deal with a wave of respiratory syncytial virus, also known as RSV, every year. But this year, the RSV wave is more like a tsunami, as COVID-19 mitigation measures have reduced many children’s immunity. For most children, RSV is mild and does not require hospitalization, but it can be serious, especially in infants and toddlers. There is no vaccine.

]]> Biden tears up GOP, calls DeSantis ‘Trump incarnate’ https://welcometopoole.co.uk/biden-tears-up-gop-calls-desantis-trump-incarnate/ Tue, 01 Nov 2022 09:15:32 +0000 https://welcometopoole.co.uk/biden-tears-up-gop-calls-desantis-trump-incarnate/

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — President Joe Biden on Tuesday lashed out at Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as “Donald Trump incarnate,” focusing on a potential 2024 GOP presidential candidate as he was campaigning for Democrats facing tough fights in next week’s midterm election.

In a final week sprint for Democrats ahead of Election Day, Biden will campaign in New Mexico on Thursday, California on Friday and Pennsylvania on Saturday. By many accounts, Democratic control of Congress and several state houses is in jeopardy, and Biden is trying to stem that tide.

In Florida, a state known to be popular with retirees, he focused on federal programs for the elderly and those less well-off. He said the current crop of GOP candidates “isn’t your dad’s Republican party” and said he prayed for God to deliver “clarification” to his opponents.

After those remarks in Hallandale Beach, he headlined a fundraiser for gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist in Golden Beach. He capped off his day in Florida with a rally at Florida Memorial University, a historically black university, for the state’s Democratic Party, including Crist and Senate candidate Val Demings.

At the event for Crist, Biden made the personal stakes against DeSantis, a major White House opponent of Biden. Biden suggested DeSantis was just another version of former President Trump and criticized him for “demonizing the LGBTQ population.”

“For me, this is one of the most important races in the country,” Biden said. “Charlie runs against Donald Trump incarnate.”

Crist noted that DeSantis would not commit during a gubernatorial debate last week to serving his full four-year term if re-elected.

“Governor DeSantis only cares about the White House, he doesn’t care about your house,” Crist told the audience.

The president’s scathing attacks on DeSantis stood in stark contrast to their cordial encounter earlier in October when Biden traveled to Florida to view the devastation wrought by Hurricane Ian. In front of the cameras, Biden said DeSantis was doing a “good job” managing the recovery from the storm. The Republican governor officially welcomed Biden to his state and praised the collaboration between officials on the ground and the federal government in Washington.

But on Tuesday in Florida, Biden shot DeSantis.

At one point, during his evening remarks at the Florida Memorial, Biden recalled that Crist – who had previously served as governor from 2007 to 2011 as a Republican – “was a great governor before and will make an even greater governor again. because of who he goes. To replace. »

Minutes later, Biden noted that the nearby port of Miami had recently received a $16 million federal grant because of one of its biggest legislative victories: the $1 trillion infrastructure legislation. He then pivoted to DeSantis.

“I’m sure your governor will take credit for it somewhere along the line,” Biden said.

The president also blasted Republicans who have come to light on the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He asked how such a political onslaught could happen and “no one in this party is condemning it for exactly what it is.”

In Hallandale Beach, he hit out at Demings’ Senate Republican opponent, incumbent Marco Rubio, for failing to support his Cut Inflation Act, passed in August by the Democratic-led Congress.

It includes several health care provisions popular among the elderly and less well-off, including a $2,000 cap on out-of-pocket medical expenses and a $35 per month cap per insulin prescription. It forces companies that raise prices faster than overall inflation to pay a rebate to Medicare.

“Not a single Republican voted for this in the United States Senate,” Biden told a crowd at a community center in Hallandale Beach. “Every lone Republican in Congress voted against these savings, including Senator Rubio.”

Biden’s appearances with Crist and Demings came after some of the Democrats’ most beleaguered candidates, including Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock and Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly, opted out of appearing with him.

Still, the president’s advisers insist he can be helpful in talking about GOP policies they deem objectionable to voters.

Meanwhile, Republicans are optimistic about their prospects across Florida as voter registration trends and changing demographics suggest the state will continue to shift to the right.

Democrats are particularly concerned about the trend in Miami-Dade County, home to 1.5 million voting-age Hispanics. It’s been a Democratic stronghold for 20 years, but the GOP made significant gains in the last presidential election. Republicans, including Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nunez, predict the region will turn red on Nov. 8.

If the Democrats lose Miami-Dade, it could virtually eliminate their path to victory in Florida statewide contests, including presidential elections, in the future.

Biden seized on Florida Sen. Rick Scott’s February proposal to end all federal laws after five years, which the president said would force Congress to reauthorize Medicare and Social Security, as hallmarks of what he called the “ultra-MAGA” agenda that Democrats are running against.

Biden, who often ends his speech by asking, “God save our troops,” offered a salty addendum with his Hallandale Beach remarks.

“God, enlighten some of our Republican friends,” Biden said.

Builders warn of a long wait as labor shortages and supply chain disruptions plague the industry https://welcometopoole.co.uk/builders-warn-of-a-long-wait-as-labor-shortages-and-supply-chain-disruptions-plague-the-industry/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 19:22:32 +0000 https://welcometopoole.co.uk/builders-warn-of-a-long-wait-as-labor-shortages-and-supply-chain-disruptions-plague-the-industry/

Jackie Poole has slowly begun renovating the Central Queensland home she shares with her husband and two sons.

She says since the family bought the Rockhampton home in 2015, they’ve turned it into their “dream home” – almost.

‘We are hoping to get the kitchen refurbished which would involve extending out onto the terrace and knocking down a few walls,’ Ms Poole said.

“We are also considering changing the roof and floor a bit.”

But she says the family wants nothing more than a swimming pool.

She says it would be ideal for her four and six-year-old sons as the hot Rockhampton summer approaches.

“It’s perfect timing,” she said.

“The boys have both just learned to swim and it’s going to get hot.”

The family was so excited to build one that they had the hole dug for the pool during previous renovations in 2018.

But Ms Poole says her plans have since been derailed.

She says she struggled to find a builder to complete one of her renovations until mid-2024.

“I was shocked,” she said.

“I had spoken to a builder before and knew there was a bit of a wait, but I didn’t think it was that long.”

Labor shortages and price hikes are hampering the industry

Mitch McDouall runs Acute Builders in central Queensland serving an area from Monto to St Lawrence and west to Alpha.

He says he is far from short of work.

“We are complete for at least two years,” he said.

“The other day we booked a job with a former client for 2024 and it’s probably a four month project, so yeah it will take us into 2025.”

Mr. McDouall says he and many other builders are working through a backlog.

“It seems like a weekly occurrence now that we’re saying no to jobs,” he says.

“It’s definitely a tough conversation to have.

“But physically we can’t do more work than we currently are.”

He says a labor shortage is hampering the industry’s ability to meet demand.

“Traders and apprentices, they’re both pretty hard to find,” he says.

“It’s also difficult because a few more guys won’t really make a difference; you need more supervisors as well as more tradesmen.”

McDouall says labor shortages combined with rising costs are making it a tough market for consumers.

“There have been a lot of people who are quite shocked by the amount of price increases, myself included,” he says.

“Obviously, the longer people wait for us to renovate, the more the prices go up.

“So we try to get through it quickly and efficiently, so the better it is for them in terms of money.”

Unique moment for builders

According to Master Builders regional manager Dean Phillips, although consumers are paying more, builders are actually worse off.

“The perception is that because it’s more expensive to build, builders make more money – but it’s the opposite,” he says.

Mr Phillips says a labor shortage and supply chain issues are contributing to construction delays in the industry.

“The material and supply chain shortages we saw as a result of COVID have not gone away,” he says.

“And there just hasn’t been commercial availability to get jobs as quickly as we would like.

“There is a skills shortage in general and a significant labor shortage.”

Ms Poole says she will have to ‘keep dreaming for a while’ before her renovations can be completed.(ABC Capricorn: Pat Heagney)

But despite the challenges, Mr Phillips says it’s a unique time to be a builder in the industry.

“They’re kind of in the box seat, the trades have all the power when it comes to negotiations,” he says.

“They are finally being paid as they deserve.

“If builders can collaborate and work together a little more, that will definitely contribute to a stronger industry.”

Ms Poole says it’s not an ideal situation, but they’re happy to wait for the job to be done right.

“It certainly comes down to everything that goes on behind the scenes that we can’t really have control over,” she says.

“I have no choice but to keep dreaming for a while.

“The hole [for the pool] sort of filled up with water, so I guess we could probably swim if we were desperate.”

Dive boat captain faces new charge in California’s worst modern maritime disaster that killed 34 | app https://welcometopoole.co.uk/dive-boat-captain-faces-new-charge-in-californias-worst-modern-maritime-disaster-that-killed-34-app/ Wed, 19 Oct 2022 02:56:04 +0000 https://welcometopoole.co.uk/dive-boat-captain-faces-new-charge-in-californias-worst-modern-maritime-disaster-that-killed-34-app/

LOS ANGELES — More than three years after 34 people were killed in the worst maritime disaster in California’s modern history, the captain of the dive boat Conception faces a new federal indictment amid a legal battle over his guilt rages.

Jerry Nehl Boylan, 68, of Santa Barbara, was indicted by a federal grand jury on Tuesday for misconduct or neglect of a ship’s officer, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California. He is charged with “a series of failures and abandonment of ship, which constituted ‘misconduct, gross negligence and disregard of duty,'” prosecutors said.

Special blend made
state a gas island

Re. “Newsom targets drifting gasoline prices”, page A1, October 8:

Much is written about the absurdly high gas prices in California compared to the rest of the country. The discrepancy is attributed to many factors, including the big profits made by California oil companies.

Never mentioned, however, is the fact that California is a gasoline island. Because California is the only state in the union to mandate specialty gas (for cleaner air, we’re told), California is cut off from gasoline produced for the rest of the country. The law of supply and demand has been repealed; thus, we are at the mercy of California’s specialty gas refiners, and they are laughing to the bank.

One wonders if the air in the other 49 states is dirtier than ours or if we are the biggest fools in the nation. Go figure.

49ers money darkens
Chavez’s intentions

Re. “49ers pay more for Cindy Chavez”, page B1, October 2:

In light of the San Francisco 49ers’ massive contribution to Cindy Chavez’s campaign for mayor of San Jose, there could be no more dangerous outcome than winning her the race. 49ers money has already corrupted the Santa Clara city government, turned council meetings into clown shows and, in many ways, pulled the city out of its pocket. For that to happen in San Jose is too big a risk to take.

The audience wonders if the contribution is payment for services already performed by Santa Clara County Supervisor Chavez or a down payment for future favors. His acceptance of the money also raises tough questions about his ethics and intentions, while questioning his respect for the office and the people of San Jose.

Niners contribution pales
compared to black money

Re. “49ers pay more for Cindy Chavez”, page B1, October 2:

Your article about the 49ers’ contributions to Cindy Chavez’s mayoral campaign is disturbing. But that’s only a small part of the picture. His competitor, Matt Mahan actually received more direct campaign contributions ($672,914 vs. $557,679).

And that’s a small change from national and state races where midterm election spending is estimated to reach $9.3 billion, much of it ‘dark money’ where the source is legally. hidden.

Candidates know they need to appeal to Big Money contributors to be competitive, so the concept of acting for the public good is relegated to a lower priority.

The only way to solve this problem is to overthrow Citizens United. Joint House Resolution 48 proposes a constitutional amendment to achieve this and restore the principle that constitutional rights belong to the people. In the meantime, all news media should regularly publish available information on political contributions.

Warriors must deal
with disruptive green

Re. “The video of the Green-Poole altercation becomes a vial: the team tries to move on”, page C1, October 8:

It’s disturbing how determined the powers that be in the Warriors organization are to punish anyone who posted a video of Draymond Green punching Jordan Poole. They seem more concerned with protecting Green than Poole. Green is a hothead, a loudmouth who keeps getting away with crude tirades on and off the court (his podcasts), and Stephen Curry, Steve Kerr and Bob Myers keep making excuses for him. They call it the heart of the team; in reality, he is the loudmouth of the team and a liability.

We wonder if Golden State is waiting for Green to attack Kerr or another teammate. Green is a loose cannon with a big mouth and no one should want their kids to see, hear and maybe imitate his behavior on or off the pitch.

Get involved locally
with debate on abortion

Re. “Appeals Court Ruling Allows Abortions to Resume in Arizona,” October 7:

With the recent upset of Roe against Wade, there has been an increase in feelings among the public who believe women face betrayal and injustice when discussing abortion rights. This social justice issue is currently unfolding in many states, but with recent events in Arizona, there is hope.
