Texas Tribune [Austin, TX], by Sydney Greene

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/13/2018 6:46:17 AM

Big-city hospitals in Texas have been overwhelmed this week by an influx of flu patients, and state health officials say influenza activity is widespread across the state. At Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, waiting rooms turned into exam areas as a medical tent was built in order to deal with the surge of patients. A Houston doctor said local hospital beds were at capacity, telling flu sufferers they might be better off staying at home. Austin´s emergency rooms have also seen an influx of flu patients. (Snip) On Monday alone, Parkland´s emergency department had seen 930 patients — double what the hospital

Comments:
We have had 28 deaths reported as of yesterday in the DFW area here. It´s like suddenly hearing of West Nile Virus deaths suddenly in my "neighborhood" and warnings about breeding grounds for these mosquitoes.

Our physician´s office phoned to cancel my spouse´s appointment for a physical because the flu took out the staff and the doctors. It´s bad out there. We will not be going to Church for at least the next two Sundays here on the west coast of lower FL.

This flu is bad. The elderly and ´immune compromised´ need to be very careful.
This flu was the sickest my wife has been in a long, long time. Be careful.

Hubble at 28: Telescope has
helped explain mysteries of universe
United Press International, by Brooks Hays    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/24/2018 5:06:48 PM     Post Reply
Today, astronomers know the age and size of the universe with greater certainty and precision than they did 28 years ago, thanks to 28 years of working with the Hubble Space Telescope. "When I was a grad student 30 years ago, we were arguing about the size and scale of the universe," NASA scientist Jeff Hayes told UPI. Hayes has said those arguments featured estimates differing by a factor of two. "Today, thanks to Hubbles´ observations, we are down to a couple of percent," he said. Hubble was designed to measure the size and age of the universe, as well as the rate of its expansion, and it succeeded in doing just that.

Washington - Two US senators, one Democrat and one Republican, introduced legislation Tuesday aimed at better protecting online privacy in response to the Facebook data scandal. (Snip) The “Social Media Privacy and Consumer Rights Act” introduced by Republican Senator John Kennedy and Democrat Amy Klobuchar would require terms of service agreements to be in plain language, and enable users to see what information about them has already been collected and shared. It would also allow consumers the right to opt out and keep their information private by disabling data tracking and collection, and mandate that

Allison Mack of ´Smallville´ gets $5M
bail, home confinement in sex-cult case
USA Today, by Jon Campbell    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/24/2018 4:38:37 PM     Post Reply
Albany - Smallville actress Allison Mack will be released on a $5 million bond and confined to a California home as she awaits trial on felony charges for her involvement in an alleged Albany-area sex cult. U.S. Magistrate Judge Viktor Pohorelsky set Mack´s bail at $5 million bond during a hearing Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court after the 35-year-old actress spent the weekend in jail, according to the U.S. Attorney´s Office for New York´s Eastern District. But Mack won't be freed entirely: Mack was ordered to home detention with electronic monitoring in central California after prosecutors made the case the actress was a risk to flee

Nancy Pelosi promises ‘pro-choice

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday the Democratic Party doesn’t have litmus tests for its congressional candidates — though she made it clear that if Democrats flip control of the House, they will fight for abortion rights. Mrs. Pelosi told the student at the Georgetown Institute of Politics that Democrats will support pro-life Democrats over a pro-life Republicans in order to increase their chances of taking over the lower chamber and that she takes “heat” for that. “We will have a pro-choice gavel when we win the Congress,” Mrs. Pelosi said. “We need to have at least 218 votes to achieve that. So this isn’t a pragmatic

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will not recuse himself from the investigation into President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, according to a media report Tuesday. However, Mr. Sessions may step back from specific questions tied to the probe, Bloomberg reported. Mr. Sessions will access briefings on the status of the Cohen investigation and voice his opinion on decisions made by prosecutors, including whether to issue subpoenas or indictments, according to the report. That could put Mr. Sessions in a position where he asked about the Cohen probe by Mr. Trump, Bloomberg reported.

(Video) - James Comey´s "A Higher Loyalty" had a very big opening week. Flatiron Books announced Tuesday that sales topped 600,000 copies, a number that includes print, audio and e-books. The former FBI director´s memoir has been one of the year´s most anticipated releases. It includes his accounts of investigating Hillary Clinton´s emails and of his awkward encounters with President Donald Trump. Comey, fired by Trump a year ago, has likened the president to a crime boss who values personal loyalty over service to the country. Published April 17, "A Higher Loyalty" is the hottest political book since Michael Wolff´s

(Video) - A NASA aircraft has spotted something in the Arctic that it can´t explain and it has "never seen before." On April 14, NASA´s Operation Ice Bridge captured images over the Beaufort Sea, 50 miles northwest of the Mackenzie River Delta. The images, taken by mission scientist John Sonntag, show unusual or "curious" circles that the government agency can´t explain. “We saw these sorta-circular features only for a few minutes today,” Sonntag wrote from the field, according to NASA. “I don’t recall seeing this sort of thing elsewhere.” NASA released the above-image, in conjunction with the mission.

US Winter Olympians who competed in PyeongChang are heading to the White House this week, but some of the most notable names are skipping the prestigious event. The 2018 Winter Olympics were, at times, used by athletes to vocalize their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration. Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have all spoke out against the administration. They are among a large swath of about 60 Olympians who will not attend the White House reception this year. Chloe Kim, Mirai Nagasu, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Shaun White are also not visiting the White House

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

Chelsea Clinton took inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge for how to manage the birth of her first child, a new book claims. She and her aides ´studied´ how the British royal family had handled the birth of Prince George in 2013 in order to prepare for her own first baby, who was born a year later. Bill and Hillary Clinton´s only daughter Chelsea, as well as her staff, noted how press was handled and how the Duchess of Cambridge handled herself, and used it as a template for themselves, the book claims. The claim suggests that Chelsea saw herself

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is set to announce a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one,” The Washington Post reports. The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American. Sanders´s office has yet to release the details of the plan´s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
