For Robin Addison, Jan. 20 was like any other Monday night. She had just slipped into her pajamas after a long day of work at Providence Regional Medical Center when, around 8:30 p.m., she got a phone call from a fellow nurse. “Robin, I think we have to open the unit,” she recalls Sarah Wilkerson saying. “The unit” is a pop-up biohazard chamber that can be erected to quarantine someone with an infectious disease. The hospital obtained it in 2015 with Ebola patients in mind. It had never been used Wilkerson, the hospital’s infection prevention manager, explained that a Snohomish County man had tested positive

Chi-Com med staff is contracting this bug at an alarming rate. If the Quarantined 'potentials' are not also separated from each other then they will all get it. No? Hope I'm wrong.

Johns Hopkins Hospital made arrangements weeks ago just in case the virus started to spread.

A new study shows the number of Washington state drivers involved in deadly crashes who tested positive for THC has doubled. According to research by AAA between 2008 and 2012, an estimated eight percent of Washington drivers involved in fatal crashes were positive for THC. That rate now is more than double since weed became legal in Washington. In the five years before legislation, an average of 56 Washington drivers involved in fatal crashes each year were THC positive.

EVERETT, Wash. -- A dangerous new virus that has sickened hundreds and killed six victims in China has now spread to Washington state, say officials with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is the first case of the "novel coronavirus" detected in the United States. The victim, a Snohomish County man in his 30s, recently traveled to China. He is now in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, where he is reported to be in "good" condition, said Dr. Chris Spitters of the Snohomish County Health District. It is unclear if the man has transmitted the virus to anyone else in the United States.

Seattle’s top prosecutor and public defender have jointly accused the city’s presiding municipal court judge of improper conduct, arguing his calls for harsher sentences and his handling of a case involving a prolific offender have undermined public confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary. In a letter Wednesday to Seattle Municipal Court Presiding Judge Ed McKenna, City Attorney Pete Holmes and Department of Public Defense Director Anita Khandelwal asked McKenna to step away from his leadership post and to change his behavior or recuse himself from all criminal matters.

Over the last two years, Amazon has amassed a real-estate portfolio in Bellevue in excess of 1 million square feet, room enough for several thousand employees. On Wednesday, Seattle employees in the company’s enormous operations organization — responsible for the delivery of orders to customers — learned that their jobs would be moved over the next four years to the city across Lake Washington. “Our vision is to create an urban campus in downtown Bellevue where employees will all be within walking distance of each other and have easy access to public transit,”

On a chilly night almost two years ago, in a cramped, cluttered room in a dirt-cheap motel on Aurora Avenue, I found myself sitting face-to-face with six heroin addicts. They were nice kids. They seemed tired. Wrung out. But they were honest, and funny at times, and I liked every one of them. I´ll never forget Ace, who was 30-years-old, with a closely shaved head and a slow, drawn out way of speaking. And, of course, they broke my heart.

Investigators are still trying to determine why a man who had reportedly been driving erratically Tuesday night fled police, sparking a chase that ended in a shootout in which a Kittitas County sheriff’s deputy was killed. One clue may be the immigration status of Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, who was also killed in the shootout in the small town of Kittitas. A police officer was wounded in the shootout but is expected to recover. Flores Del Toro, a Mexican national, was in the United States illegally on an expired agriculture visa, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said.

He said she cut him off before shoving her. He then grabbed her by the backpack and tried to push her over the railing

Mike Bloomberg is considering making Hillary Clinton his running mate, a source close to his campaign has told Drudge Report. Polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be a formidable force to take on Trump in the race for the White House, the source said. Former New York City Mayor and Democratic candidate Bloomberg is said to be considering even changing his official residence from New York to Colorado or Florida - where he also has homes - because the electoral college makes it difficult for US president and vice-president to reside in the same state.

Chicago’s mass transit system apologized this week after a tweet recognizing Abraham Lincoln for Black History Month sparked a backlash. The Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) official Twitter account retweeted a post with photos of a man dressed as the Great Emancipator waiting for the Red Line train. “In honor of Black History Month, Abraham Lincoln was seen making a guest appearance on the CTA,” the CTA wrote Wednesday, which was also Lincoln’s 111th birthday. The tweet was quickly deleted after users criticized the agency for celebrating a white man during Black History Month, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Willaim Barr assumed the reins of the Department of Justice (DOJ) a year ago, succeeding Jeff Sessions as attorney general (A.G.) of the United States. (snip) Barr's DOJ has all but exonerated McCabe of any crimes -- indeed, on February 14, the DOJ indicated that it would not pursue charges against McCabe. If Barr and the DOJ are unwilling to hold McCabe accountable, why would conservatives expect anything different with Comey, Brennan, or Clapper, or Obama, or any of the others who were so central to the coup that continues to this day? It's business as usual at Barr's DOJ

Sen. Amy Klobuchar has reversed her position on English being the official language of the U.S. The Minnesota Democrat and Democratic presidential hopeful announced that she now holds a “strong position against” the English-language amendment which she voted in favor of back in 2007. (Tweet) “I think that when you look at a state like this state, and a country like ours that is so diverse, you don’t want to have that provision in law because then it would be very difficult to have, say, government documents and other things translated into other languages,” she said at a campaign event in Las Vegas on Friday, according to The Associated Press.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) issued a scathing denunciation of the mainstream media on Friday, accusing several outlets of ignoring her campaign in favor of lesser candidates and blaming that coverage in part for her campaign's failure to gain traction with primary voters. In an email to supporters on Friday, Warren's campaign said it could no longer "count on the media to cover our campaign fairly." It argued that other candidates, such as former vice president Joe Biden, received more coverage despite posting less impressive results in early primary states.

One of Robert Mueller's former top prosecutors said the outside prosecutor picked to review the case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is a ruse to investigate President Trump's perceived enemies. Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller's "pit bull" during the Russia investigation, said the Justice Department swapped out the "loser case" of Andrew McCabe,

Now that as many as six serious Democratic candidates remain in the race, pundits increasingly believe the party is headed for a brokered convention. Hold on to your hats if that happens, because it’s even more complicated than it sounds. Presidential nominating conventions used to be “brokered” because the delegates were largely appointed by — and loyal to — political bosses. Delegates voted on multiple ballots as rivals vied for the bosses’ favor, making the quadrennial events the political equivalent of reality television. You could never be sure which governor or senator would be voted off the island and which would become the ultimate survivor.

The Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act is not about restricting abortions but about giving newborns a chance to survive no matter where they are born, said Sen. Ben Sasse, the bill’s lead co-sponsor, at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday. During the hearing, called “The Infant Patient: Ensuring Appropriate Medical Care for Children Born Alive,” Republican senators questioned why a baby born in a hospital should be treated differently than a baby born in an abortion facility. Democrats, lacking an answer, changed the subject. Thirteen committee senators heard from five female witnesses, three who shared powerful testimony and two who expressed concerns about the bill.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg said on Friday (February 14) that school strikes, now in their 78th week, would go on until those in power did what was required to "save our future". Hundreds of people took part in a school strike march near the Swedish parliament in Stockholm on Friday, the place where Thunberg started her school strike in August 2018 to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. The two-kilometre march ended in Medborgarplatsen square where Thunberg addressed the protesters. The demonstration was part of a nation-wide school strike for the climate, organised by the

Bless his heart. Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg was roasted on Twitter for his failed attempt at slinging Texas slang while pandering to voters in Houston. At the time, Bloomberg unconvincingly bragged that President Trump is scared of running against him. “Mini-Mike”– who looked so nervous that he’d worry the warts off a frog — made the claims while speaking to the Harris County Democratic Party. Bloomberg awkwardly stammered as he read off the teleprompter: “Now if I were from Texas, I might say Donald Trump is scared as a cat at the dog pound. But since I’m from New York, I’ll put it this way:
Roger Stone Juror Could Serve Jail Time if it's

Andrew Napolitano, who is hardly a cheerleader for Team Trump, told Tucker Carlson Thursday evening that Tomeka Hart, the woman who served as foreperson on the jury during Roger Stone's trial, could face jail time if it's determined she lied about her bias when she was selected to serve on the jury. Stone was convicted of seven counts of making false statements, witness tampering and obstruction, but Hart, a former Democratic congressional candidate, is rabidly anti-Trump and had no business being on the jury, let alone foreperson. “Is it your view a problem that the foreman of the jury in Roger Stone’s trial turned out to be a former Democratic congressional candidate
