COVID-19 ~ One Year Anniversary — By Hook Or By Book

Today marks the one year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a pandemic. It’s a tragic milestone to mark as millions around the world have lost their lives, and 1/3 of survivors continue to battle long term symptoms. Thankfully, with the vaccines, there is light at the end of the tunnel. My husband […]

Whole30 Lunch – Homemade Baked Potato Chips with Boiled Eggs and Tessamae Ranch Dressing

Leverage Ambition

2018! I am on Round 2, Day 2 of my Whole30 diet. First round last year I lost 13 pounds, and looking to lose 10 more this time around. I have to admit I gained 3 pounds or so since my last round. I haven’t had raw sugar however I did have non-compliant meat and dairy products sparingly. I think this had to do with the weight gain. Also it is that time of the month as a woman, so typically I gain at least 5 pounds of water weight. Crazy I know, but I am hoping this was the reason for the weight gain too.

Day 2 of the Whole30 and the menu I have had thus far consists of Kale Chips that I baked in the oven at 425 degrees fahrenheit, and actually only drizzled some olive oil on top with Himalayan salt and pepper. I didn’t have…

SECUELAS – Escribir sobre la punta de la i

AFTERMATH

They no longer knew who to protect. Day after day revenue growth had drained all of the hospital’s resources. The supply of medicines had long since been suspended.The sick crowded in the corridors and the dead, in offices, laboratories and waiting rooms after the cellars and parking lots did not fit another soul. And when we thought we had seen it all, hunger arrived, well equipped with misery and frustration and sneaked into our homes without meeting the slightest resistance.
People were clamoring for justice, but the lawyers were exhausted and could not cope. The demands piled up one on top of the other, fiery, impatient, angry. We were all so busy with our problems, with our troubles, that no one realized that there were hardly any trees left to make coffins.

Opinion | I Was an E.M.T. While Covid-19 Devastated New York – The New York Times

Then things got worse. Scores of “diff breathers” turned into cardiac arrests, and worse — 83Rs and 83Ds — codes for dead after resuscitation initiated and for dead on arrival. That deep cough we once heard when we arrived on the scene was replaced by the agonized wails of inconsolable family members. A father or mother or grandparent had just died, and we couldn’t even offer the comfort of a hug because the virus was so contagious.

On one day in April, 800 people died.

The E.M.T.s and paramedics of the pandemic are the firefighters of Sept. 11. First in, last out. The risks have been consequential.

It was a terrible blessing to be an E.M.T. at a time when the city was in desperate need. Many of the people we tried to save died, but many lived. I still feel shaken when I think about those deaths. But I never felt hopeless inside the screaming ambulances that radiated so much light.

 

Guam governor offers Greene history book after falsely calling US territory a foreign land | TheHill (F. Gump: Stupid is as stupid does)

Guam has been part of the United States since 1899, and people born on the island in the west Pacific Ocean have been considered U.S. citizens since 1950. Guam’s roughly 170,000 residents do pay federal taxes but not federal income tax.

The island served a key military role during the Pacific campaign in World War II and there are roughly 6,200 active duty U.S. troops stationed there.

Greene made the gaffe last month during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, urging the U.S. to stop sending aid overseas.

“I’m a regular, normal person. And I wanted to take my regular, normal person, normal, everyday American values, which is: We love our country. We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America, not for what, China, Russia, the Middle East, Guam — whatever, wherever,” the Georgia Republican said.

Arizona House Republican says party thinks ‘everybody shouldn’t be voting’ | TheHill (only wants “quality” people voting?)

“Not everybody wants to vote, and if somebody is uninterested in voting, that probably means that they’re totally uninformed on the issues,” he said. “Quantity is important, but we have to look at the quality of votes, as well.”Source: Arizona House Republican says party thinks ‘everybody shouldn’t be voting’ | TheHill
