- Dr. Jason Mitchell said that doctors are doing everything to prevent rationing care as New Mexico’s governor signed an executive order that moved the state a step closer to rationing care at any place where patients are being treated for coronavirus.
- ICUs in New Mexico hit 103% capacity, the highest in the country, according to HHS.
- Mitchell explained that while medical professionals are already exhausted, the toll that potentially “not having what you need for every patient is just crushing.”
Though Central California is the first area in the state to hit 0% ICU capacity, it will not be the last. The latest data show that the entire San Joaquin Valley’s ICU capacity is down to 5.6%, and the Southern California region is hovering around 10.1%.

The idea of doing the right thing and following the rules
Att ständigt få ryggdunkar glada hejarop! bra jobbat härliga gjort du är bäst osv! ja det glädjer mig oerhört! men jag kommer ingen stans med det jag stampar kvar där på min samma plats! den snälle den arbetsamme den som man alltid kan lite på! jag följer regler och lagar och gör det som ska göras! Men det värker i hjärtat när man ständigt ser sig bli överkörd utnyttjad och på annat sätt få fördelar av att tänja på regler ta genvägar och så vidare! varför ska man bli straffad för att man spelar efter livets regler! och inte bara tar enklaste vägen, och inte är den som hörs och syns mest! det svider när det är alltid den som inte är så nogräknad vinner! ja livet är inte rättvist, men jag har i alla fall ett hjärta som säger att jag gör rätt när jag foljer regler och visar…

Inside my dreams, I drift I paint myself a gift Letting my world come alive Palette of colors that thrive Spangling dreams with fairytales Bequeathing warmth to life's trails My dreams have no illusions Words fall without deception Stars tiptoe in with blues Tides bring in magnetic muse... I tuck dreams away for a rainy day My way of keeping sorrow at bay.
It is easy to decorate words. It is difficult to unwrap them and let them be able to have an effect on us
É fácil enfeitar as palavras. Difícil é desembrulhá-las e deixar que estas, possa surtir algum efeito em nós. É fácil perceber a riqueza , a ‘perola’ de como as palavras são trabalhadas, o jeito de serem colocadas num pedaço de papel e soarem harmonicamente quando lemos. Algumas podem ter diferentes efeitos. Muitas nos acalmam, outras provocam a nossa fúria e tem aquelas que não respontamrespondeixam uma incógnita no ar.
É fácil sublinhar o silêncio, porque este, nos ensina a melhorar mais do que qualquer outra forma de ensinamento. Na maioria das vezes, aprendemos mesmos é sem palavras. Tantas são as situações que corremos atrás delas, tentando organizar as respostas que tanto precisamos, que simplesmente, por não tê-las, deixamos tudo de lado e vamos nos desconstruir dentro dos nossos claustros.
Os problemas sempre fizeram parte do cotidiano humano. Um homem sem problemas, é um homem sem história […], é preciso termos…

According to the county health care agency, new cases of COVID-19 infections declined for the second straight day, with today’s total of 1,671, compared to 1,964 on Monday. Deaths were zero again.
A report from Billboard.
“Feliz Navidad” turns 50 this year, and it’s showing no signs of age.
The classic Christmas song is one of the top 10-performing hits in the decade-plus history of Billboard’s Holiday 100 chart, and one of the most popular Latin songs of all time.
Recorded in 1970 by Puerto Rican singer and songwriter José Feliciano, “Feliz Navidad” is a marvel in many ways. “It just came to me; there’s no rhyme or reason,” he recently toldBillboard. “The first lyric came to me, then I put the English lyric into it, not realizing I had made it the only bilingual Christmas song ever in the world. I created a monster.”
Feliciano stopped by The Tonight Show on Monday (Dec. 7) to perform his enduring hit. Watch below.
effective December 7, 2020, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is:
- Accepting first-time requests for consideration of deferred action under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) based on the terms of the DACA policy in effect prior to September 5, 2017, and in accordance with the Court’s December 4, 2020, order;
- Accepting DACA renewal requests based on the terms of the DACA policy in effect prior to September 5, 2017, and in accordance with the Court’s December 4, 2020, order;
- Accepting applications for advance parole documents based on the terms of the DACA policy prior to September 5, 2017, and in accordance with the Court’s December 4, 2020, order;
- Extending one-year grants of deferred action under DACA to two years; and
- Extending one-year employment authorization documents under DACA to two years.
USCIS will take appropriate steps to provide evidence of the one-year extensions of deferred action and employment authorization documents under DACA to individuals who were issued documentation on or after July 28, 2020, with a one-year validity period under the Wolf Memorandum.
DHS will comply with Judge Garaufis’ order while it remains in effect, but DHS may seek relief from the order.
The devices—used for CT scans, MRIs, X-Rays, mammograms, ultrasounds, and positron emission tomography—use a default password to receive regular maintenance. The passwords are available to anyone who knows where on the Internet to look. A lack of proper access restrictions allows the devices to connect to malicious servers rather than only those designated by GE Healthcare. Attackers can exploit these shortcomings by abusing the maintenance protocols to access the devices. From there, the attackers can execute malicious code or view or modify patient data stored on the device or the hospital or healthcare provider servers.
Aggravating matters, customers can’t fix the vulnerability themselves. Instead, they must request that the GE Healthcare support team change the credentials. Customers who don’t make such a request will continue to rely on the default password. Eventually, the device manufacturer will provide patches and additional information.
