Trump’s Georgia Call Crosses a Red Line – The Atlantic

The Raffensperger tape shows Trump’s Plan A to stay ahead of the law: election tampering. That plan will reach its finale on January 6—the point of no return, the last minute for stunts and sabotage. A shameful number of Republican members of the House and Senate have signed up for the stunts and sabotage, but not enough to prevent the inevitable outcome of a Biden-Harris inauguration on January 20.

If a president can pardon himself as well as his or her subordinates, a president can order any crime, or commit it himself, with absolute impunity. The very notion of a self-pardon is radically inconsistent with democratic accountability. If Trump tries to pardon himself, his successors must fight his attempt all the way to the Supreme Court. And given the Raffensperger recording, who doubts that Trump will try it?

The sensible American majority surely wants an end to Trump controversies after Inauguration Day, a return to normal governance and the crucial work ahead: overcoming the pandemic, restoring the economy, and renewing U.S. leadership of the world. But Trump gets a say too, as he got a say in the impeachment crisis. Trump is abusing the power of the presidency until his last hour in office. And his nonstop abuse seems likely to force a reckoning even by those most eager to move on. Trump will not be ignored; he will not let the chapter quietly close. Show him a red line, and he will cross it. And if the country’s red lines are to be reestablished, Trump will have to face the law he violated and violated and violated again.

Saludablemente…

Hassentidoque.wordpress.com

La salud es algo más que tener el peso adecuado, estar en forma, fuertes físicamente, la salud debe ser integral, pensando, sintiendo y hablando saludablemente, es como fortalecemos nuestro yo espiritual, nos hace falta mantener un equilibrio entre los factores biológicos, sociales y personales.

Cuidar las relaciones interpersonales que tenemos con quien nos rodean, es de vital importancia para fluir saludablemente, así creamos un ambiente en armonía, lo que nos mantiene tranquilos, felices, lo cual repercute favorablemente en nuestra salud.

Continúo escribiendo, sentada cómodamente en un pequeño sillón, con unos jeans deslavados, un suéter color morado y descalza, con una taza de tisana de frutos rojos jengibre y limón, escuchando Que reste-t-il de nos amours? (Chales Trenet) -Avalon Jazz Band-, cuando de pronto encontré la siguiente frase, que me parece va de la mano con vivir sanamente.

Antes de discutir RESPIRA… Antes de hablarESCUCHA… Antes de criticarEXAMINA…

How mass vaccinations halted a killer virus in 1950s Glasgow – BBC News

Glasgow Smallpox outbreak The long line of people outside the health centre wait patiently for their turn to be vaccinated.

Special clinics are getting through 600 jabs an hour but the queues are not getting any shorter.

Meanwhile, public health officials are desperately trying to trace anyone who has come into contact with those carrying a deadly virus.

It may sound familiar but this is in fact the picture in Glasgow in the grip of a smallpox outbreak in 1950.

Oral Health and Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Unique Collaboration between Dentistry and Occupational Therapy – Docwire News

Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are at risk for oral health disparities. With the dramatic rise in ASD prevalence to 1 in 54 children, it is likely that an increasing number of dental practitioners will encounter or be asked to treat children with ASD. This paper reviews explanations related to the increasing prevalence of ASD, provides reasons why children with ASD are at increased risk for poor oral health, and discusses unique interprofessional collaborations between dental practitioners and occupational therapists. Occupational therapists and dentists can work together to plan modifications to the dental environment or adapt dental protocols to reduce some of the barriers encountered by those with ASD, provide desensitization strategies before the clinic visit, or help a child with emotional regulation during clinical treatments.

High Rate of SARS-CoV-2 Transmission Due to Choir Practice in France at the Beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic – Docwire News

Twenty-seven participants, including 25 singers, 1 conductor and 1 accompanist attended a choir practice on March 12, 2020. The practice was indoor and took place in a non ventilated space of 45 m2. No choir member reported having been symptomatic for COVID-19 between March 2 and March 12.The mean age of the participants was 66.9 (range 35-86) years. The secondary attack rate was 70%: 19/27 participants were diagnosed with COVID-19 from 1 to 12 days after the rehearsal with a median of 5.1 days. Thirty-six percent of the cases needed a hospitalization (7/19), and 21% (4/19) were admitted to an ICU. The index cases were asymptomatic and possibly multiple. CONCLUSION: In the absence of valid barrier measures to prevent COVID-19 transmission, indoor choir practice should be suspended during the SARSCoV-2 surging phases. Transmission of the virus among gatherings from asymptomatic cases is a crucial issue and a main challenge to COVID-19 control.
