Indiana Gov. Holcomb, Republicans keep legislative control with big wins in state races

first_imgIndiana Governor Eric Holcomb was elected for a second term by a hefty margin as the Republican party swept the state to retain supermajority control of the state Senate and House of Representatives. Indiana, home to Vice President Mike Pence, was also one of the first states to go to President Donald Trump on election night, gaining him 11 electoral college votes.Holcomb won his reelection campaign defeating Democratic nominee Woodrow Myers and Libertarian Donald Rainwater. Holcomb first became the Republican nominee for governor in 2016 when former governor Mike Pence ran as Donald Trump’s vice president. The Associated Press called the gubernatorial race around 7 p.m. Tuesday night with 12 percent of the vote reported.Holcomb ran his reelection campaign on the promise to usher in a new era of record job commitments, record infrastructure investments and new career training opportunities. Holcomb succeeded to hold onto his supporters as the leader of the state’s coronavirus response despite some pushback on ongoing mask mandates.“Around here in Indiana… we don’t just dream big things. We do big things and we aspire to be a positive influence all along the way,” Holcomb said at a watch party with Republican supporters Tuesday night.Myers conceded to Holcomb and called him to congratulate the governor about an hour after the election was called. Myers thanked Hoosiers who supported him in a tweet shortly after.Sophomore Claire Kloska, a native of South Bend, said she was not “too surprised” Holcomb came out ahead.“Just because Indiana has had a Republican governor for the past 15 years and the general population tends to vote red, making it probably the most likely outcome,” Kloska said.Shelby Riehle, a sophomore from LaPorte, said she also was not surprised. Despite the disputes and concerns over the pandemic, Riehle said she thought conversations over the health crisis were productive.“I feel like both candidates addressed the virus considerably in their platforms,” Riehle said. “I am pleased and think [Holcomb] will continue to be a strong leader for our state.”In the general assembly, the GOP appeared as of late Tuesday night, to keep its lock on legislative control to hold onto its two-thirds majority in the House and the Senate.Though the Democratic party heavily focused its efforts on the contested attorney general seat, Republican candidate former Indiana Congressman Todd Rokita won with 60 percent of the vote against Democratic candidate former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel.Tags: 2020 election, Attorney General, general assembly, Governor Holcomb, indianalast_img read more

Reporting immunization status next step to protect against outbreaks

first_imgParents can help ensure immunizations for their children are up to date by viewing their own past records to provide to public health officials. As well as public health clinics, parents are able to get their children immunized through their primary care providers or community pharmacists.The government shares, mandatory reporting is part of the ongoing plan to increase immunization rates for all vaccine-preventable diseases. This effort commenced with the measles immunization catch-up program in April 2019. The most recent data indicates that increasing the opportunities for guardians to get children immunized is improving immunization levels overall.“This spring, we launched the catch-up measles immunization program throughout schools and public health units, which is having a positive effect,” said Dix. “Since April, the number of kindergarten-to-Grade 12 students having received two doses of measles vaccine has increased by over 33,000. Based on the records reviewed so far by health authorities – amounting to over 566,000 – nearly 95% of students have received one or two doses of vaccine.”B.C. has a comprehensive provincial childhood immunization program, which includes coverage for a wide variety of diseases including measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, pertussis, polio, HPV, varicella, diphtheria, influenza, meningococcal disease and hepatitis.For more information on immunizations;Advertisement To check on immunization status, or to find a public health unit anywhere in the province, visit; CLICK HERE Learn more about measles and the vaccines online; CLICK HERE To learn more about B.C.’s provincial childhood immunization program, visit; CLICK HERE Visit BC Centre for Disease Control’s website for the latest measles updates in B.C.; CLICK HERE “Through this additional measure, we can be confident that health officials will be able to provide better protection to our students by preventing outbreaks,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Education. “Improving the rates of immunization of children and youth is critically important for student safety and healthy schools across B.C.”Public health officials will review school enrolment records in late August and into October 2019 to match them against immunization records for kindergarten-to-Grade 12 students that currently exist in the provincial immunization registry.For the first year of the reporting requirement, the goal will be to help parents get their children up to date on immunizations by the end of the school year.Mandatory reporting of student’s immunization status increases public health’s ability to respond during an outbreak, as it allows health officials to quickly identify those who are under-and unimmunized.Advertisementcenter_img VANCOUVER, B.C. – Students enrolled in the provincial school system will be expected to provide immunization records.The Vaccination Status Reporting Regulation is the new mandatory reporting requirement in place by the Province.“In the wake of the global measles outbreaks this spring, B.C. is implementing several measures to protect children and families from this and other communicable diseases through improved immunization,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health.- Advertisement -“Starting this school year, parents and guardians will be expected to provide the immunization status of their children to their local public health unit,” said Dix. “This mandatory reporting of the immunization status of students will ensure the public health system is prepared in the event of an outbreak. Furthermore, with the up-to-date records, public health can reach out to families with children behind on their immunizations and provide an opportunity to catch them up, as well as discuss any concerns with parents.”According to the government, most parents are already in compliance with this requirement, which means nothing further will be required when their children/ students start the new school year.For parents or guardians of children with an incomplete or missing record will be contacted by public health as to how to provide their child’s immunization information if needed and receive information on upcoming school-based or community health clinics where their child can receive immunizations if they require them.Advertisementlast_img read more

Botulinum Toxin Deactivated by One Slight Change

first_imgA researcher at Brookhaven National Laboratory mutated a botulinum enzyme by just one amino acid, and abolished its toxicity.  The mutation, a change from a glutamate to a glutamine at one position, increased the distance from a zinc atom to a water molecule by 0.6 angstrom, less than one tenth of a billionth of a meter.  This was enough to prevent the botulinum enzyme from cleaving its target protein, a neurotransmitter.  The modified enzyme could still bind to it, but not cleave it.This experiment points out the specificity of enzymes.  We are led to believe that evolution works by mutating things recklessly, but look how slight a change totally disarmed this enzyme.  A second observation is that toxins like botulinum might have originally had a beneficial function, but became toxic through degenerative mutations.  Though difficult to prove, it is an interesting suggestion that, just as with mentally ill humans, it doesn’t take much to turn a benign individual into a killer.  That isn’t evolution.  It’s a breakdown in quality control.  Another possibility is that botulinum’s function, cleaving a neurotransmitter, was originally beneficial.  As reported before, many deadly poisons actually follow a “hormesis” curve and only become harmful above certain levels (see 02/12/2003 headline).  Botox is now all the rage.  In minute amounts, it is proving versatile for everything from beauty treatments to tumor reduction; see for instance this report on EurekAlert about University of Pittsburgh scientists using to ease symptoms of enlarged prostate.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Ohio’s Crop Progress Report – May 23rd, 2016

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While some growers in the northern part of the State were able to begin planting due to warmer weather, most growers throughout the rest of the State continued to delay planting as their fields were too wet for planting activities, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician of the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 2.8 day suitable for fieldwork for the week ending May 22nd. While corn and soybean planting progress moved somewhat, both are behind the five year averages. There were frosts early in the week, which raised concern about damage to wheat, fruit, and vegetables, as well as the emerged early planted corn and soybeans. Emerged corn is looking yellow and stressed, and some will need to be replanted if the weather cooperates. Hay fields were being chopped across the state, though much of it for haylage, as conditions made it too difficult for dry hay baling. Other activities included tillage, spraying, and fertilizer application.Read the entire report herelast_img read more

Gas Lines Point to a Need for Resilience

first_imgBy now we’ve all seen the photos of houses buried in sand along the Jersey Shore, burned-out homes in Queens, and submerged subway stations in Manhattan. Those spectacular images were in the first wave of news from Superstorm Sandy last week.The secondary, lingering effects might not be as dramatic, but they are nonetheless highly significant. And they demonstrate, ever so clearly, our need for greater resilience. As of late-afternoon Sunday, November 4th, there were still 1.8 million customers without power, the vast majority of them in New York and New Jersey. That’s down from 8.5 million without power at the peak, but it still includes almost a quarter of New Jersey. In some places outages may last for weeks.Outages in August in New Jersey aren’t so bad — there might be some discomfort from the heat, but few at real risk of safety — but with temperatures dropping into the 30s early this week, power outages become quite serious. The vast majority of our heating systems require electricity to operate — for the fans, pumps, and controls — though there are some exceptions. RELATED ARTICLES Power outages and gas stationsAlong with these obvious problems of power outages — lack of lighting, heat, and appliances — power outages affect us outside the home as well.As we learned in New Jersey and Long Island, without power most gas stations can’t operate. The American Automobile Association estimated on Thursday, November 1st, that 60% of service stations in New Jersey and 70% on Long Island were closed because they don’t have power to pump fuel. Only 23% of New Jersey service stations were still without power by Sunday morning, but lines persisted in many areas.There were also actual fuel shortages, which contributed to the problems. The U.S. Department of Energy reported that 13 of the region’s 33 fuel terminals were closed as a result of the storm, along with two major gasoline pipelines serving the area.Without gasoline, we can’t run our cars. But those shortages also meant that homeowners with smaller, gasoline-powered generators were running out of fuel. A mobile generator and battery bankWith the net-zero-energy house my wife and I are currently building (rebuilding) in Dummerston, Vermont, we’re thinking of installing a fairly conventional grid-connected solar-electric (PV) system, but using a new inverter that is coming out early next year that allows you to plug a load into it when the sun is shining — even when the grid is down. (Most grid-connected PV systems can’t operate when the grid is down, though the sun may be shining brightly.)Rather than a battery bank for back-up electricity during power outages, we’re thinking of using the plug-in hybrid car we plan to buy for most of our emergency power needs. It will have a battery system (which we’ll normally charge using electricity from our PV array), so why install a second battery system that will only get used during occasional power outages. Our car can be our resilient power system. Moving toward resilienceThe solutions to these problems are many-faceted. Relative to the need for generators, we should build greater resilience into our homes. All homes should be able to maintain livable conditions in the event of loss of power or heating fuel. This is a familiar refrain of mine.We can do this with much better building envelopes (significantly higher insulation levels, triple-glazed windows, tighter construction) and passive solar gain. With such features, the temperatures in those homes should never drop below 45 or 50 degrees Fahrenheit, even in the middle of winter if there’s no power and our heating systems can’t operate. Reducing dependence on carsRelative to gasoline shortages and the inability to pump gas during outages, we can achieve greater resilience by reducing our dependence on the automobile. This isn’t a quick fix, but through involvement in local planning efforts and by influencing transportation funding priorities, we can produce more pedestrian-friendly spaces that allow people to reach key services safely on foot or by bicycle.If we create communities that can function reasonably well without automobiles during times of emergencies, those will be places where automobile use may also drop during normal times. These will be cleaner, safer, healthier places that move us toward sustainability.center_img Making Houses Resilient to Power OutagesCreate Resilient HousesBuilding Resilience for a ‘Close Encounter’ with DisasterMaking the Case for Resilient DesignResilience: Designing Homes for More Intense Storms Designing Houses and Communities To Be Smarter and More ResilientResilient Design: Dramatically Better Building EnvelopesResilient Communities Designing Homes and Communities That Can Survive a Disaster Alex is founder of BuildingGreen, Inc. and executive editor of Environmental Building News.

LaVar Ball questions Trump’s role in son’s release

first_imgKammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH FILE – In this July 7, 2017, file photo, LaVar Ball, father of Los Angeles Lakers’ Lonzo Ball and UCLA player LiAngelo Ball, watches the Lakers play the Los Angeles Clippers during an NBA summer league basketball game, in Las Vegas. President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday, Nov. 19, that he should have left three UCLA basketball players, including LiAngelo Ball, accused of shoplifting in China in jail after LaVar Ball minimized Trump’s involvement in winning the players’ release during an interview Saturday, Nov. 18, with ESPN. (AP Photo/John Locher, File)WASHINGTON — Outspoken basketball dad LaVar Ball questioned the extent of President Donald Trump’s involvement in securing his son’s release from the custody of Chinese authorities during a combative 20-minute CNN interview on Monday night.The president, in tweets Sunday, said he should have left LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in jail because LaVar Ball “is unaccepting of what I did for his son” and“very ungrateful!” LaVar Ball has refused to thank Trump.ADVERTISEMENT Pelicans’ Cousins ejected for swinging elbow at Westbrook Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 LaVar Ball didn’t back down during the CNN interview, telling host Chris Cuomo that Trump has more important things to do than ask for his gratitude.“That’s on your mind, that a father didn’t say ‘Thank you’? And you’re the head of the U.S.? Come on,” Ball said. “There’s a lot of other things that’s going on.

I’ve seen 16, 17-year-old kids that have had to go to jail for life, that were my friends,” Ball said. “He wasn’t physical. He returned it. He fessed up to it.”LiAngelo and fellow UCLA freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have been suspended indefinitely. They were arrested and questioned about stealing from high-end stores next to the team’s hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins stayed before leaving for Shanghai to play Georgia Tech. All three apologized for their actions and thanked Trump for his role in securing their release, which occurred while the president was traveling in Asia.The trio isn’t allowed to suit up, be on the bench for home games or travel with the team. Without them, No. 23 UCLA lost to Creighton on Monday night in the Hall of Fame Classic.LaVar Ball is attempting to build an empire around the basketball skills of his three sons — Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo, LiAngelo and prep prospect LaMelo — and his own bombastic personality.
