first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window),Businesses such as walmart, dollar generals etc are not enforcing the wear a mask law. It’s no different than no shirt no shoes no service and masks are law. As the governor said this law needs to be enforced at the local level to insure the vulnerable safety. Come on mayors, County Executive, our state representatives do your job to protect people in this county.,A Executive Order by the Governor is not Law, it is treated as such, and only until revoked or suspended. Further, a mask is only required at this time in the event a 6’ distance requirement cannot be maintained between people. What are we becoming, asking for an enforcement penalty or detainment for not complying with wearing a mask in public? If people are in such fear perhaps they themselves should impose self imprisonments rather than asking to impose their will on others WNY News Now Stock Graphic.JAMESTOWN – Western New York will officially enter phase three of reopening on Tuesday.New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, while speaking during his daily press conference update at the Governor Mario M.

Broadway.com Culturalist Challenge! Rank Your Top 10 Favorite Roses in Gypsy

first_imgThe Broadway.com staff is crazy for Culturalist, the website that lets you choose and create your own top 10 lists. Every week, we’re challenging you with a new Broadway-themed topic to rank.Here she is, boys! Here she is, world! Now the question is: which one is your favorite? Gypsy opened on May 21,1959 at the Broadway Theatre, and 57 years later, there have been five Main Stem revivals, two film adaptations (three if you count the taped West End revival) and the possibility of a third starring Barbra Streisand. Audiences still beg Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne’s tuner to entertain them, and that is in part due to the brassy, bossy, bombastic role of Rose. Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly and Patti LuPone have taken home Tonys for playing the iconic character, and Imelda Staunton nabbed an Olivier Award for leading 2015’s West End revival. Rosalind Russell and Bette Midler have portrayed her onscreen, and of course, we cannot forget Ethel Merman’s original take on the relentlessly ambitious stage mother. So which Rose performance can you truly never get away from?

How to give to charity without going into debt

first_imgby: Peter AndersonWith the holidays upon us, many are anticipating a time of relaxation and celebration. We look forward to going to family gatherings, big holiday dinners and sharing in some good holiday cheer.But what about those who are less fortunate? Many of them won’t be able to celebrate with large holiday dinners or even with roofs over their heads. For me, the holidays bring with them a stark reminder of how blessed I am, and just how important it is to help others who don’t have as much.But what if you’re in a situation where you’re trying to work your way out of debt? Should you still be giving to charities? Is there a way to give without digging yourself an even bigger hole?Giving Makes Us Healthier, Happier PeopleBefore we delve into how to give when you’re getting out of debt, I think we should all remember the importance of giving to others. When you give, you’re not only helping those who are on the receiving end, you’re helping yourself.Studies show that people who are more giving tend to be happier and healthier, both short and long term. For example, a 2008 study by Harvard Business School professor Michael Norton and colleagues found that giving to others, even in amounts as small as $5, can lead to increased well-being for the giver. continue reading » 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Salmonella found in peppers, but no outbreak link so far

first_imgJul 18, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Texas and North Carolina officials yesterday announced recalls of avocadoes and jalapeno and Serrano peppers after some samples tested positive for Salmonella. But Texas officials said they did not find the Salmonella strain involved in the current nationwide outbreak, while the strain in the North Carolina produce was not yet known.Jalapeno and Serrano peppers are the top suspects in the ongoing nationwide outbreak linked to the relatively rare Salmonella enterica Saintpaul strain, which has sickened 1,220 people.The Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) said in a press release yesterday that Grande Produce, an Hidalgo-based produce importer and distributor, was voluntarily recalling avocadoes, Serrano peppers, and jalapeno peppers after North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) lab found Salmonella in the company’s products.Texas officials said jalapenos and Serrano peppers that tested positive in their labs for Salmonella did not contain S Saintpaul. The TDSHS said their tests revealed Salmonella group C1, not Salmonella group B, the group that includes the Saintpaul strain.The TSDHS said it has tested about 70 food products for Salmonella in recent weeks, and the only two that tested positive were jalapeno and Serrano peppers from Grande Produce.William Ayres, a spokesman for the TSDHS, told CIDRAP News that Texas has not received any reports of illnesses linked to Salmonella group C.Texas officials, along with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are overseeing the recall and are investigating where the avocadoes and peppers were shipped and where and how the produce was contaminated. The agencies are telling Grande Produce’s customers to pull the products from store shelves.Meanwhile, North Carolina officials asked a Charlotte food distributor to recall jalapeno peppers and Hass avocadoes it received from an unnamed Texas food supplier because of possible Salmonella contamination after two samples tested positive for the pathogen, the NCDHHS said in a press release yesterday.Authorities were determining how many of North Carolina’s food distributors, restaurants, grocery stores, and other merchants received the produce.”We are working quickly and carefully with our state, local, and federal partners in an attempt to solve this case,” said Steve Troxler, North Carolina’s agriculture commissioner, in the statement.Leah Devlin, North Carolina’s public health director, said there was no indication that the Salmonella strain is the one linked to the national outbreak. The state’s laboratory and the CDC are conducting additional tests to determine if the pathogen found in the two produce samples matches the outbreak strain, the NCDHHS said.See also:Jul 17 North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services press releaseJul 17 Texas Department of State Health Services press releaseJul 17 CIDRAP News story “FDA ends warning on tomatoes, focuses on peppers”last_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Monday, June 17

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionProject Dance was exhilarating, joyfulWhen, as a parent, a sibling, or grandparent, as part of the school putting on an annual performance, do you ever find yourself experiencing an exhilarating rush?Maybe that’s when you choke up a little watching in a suspended state, or start to move with the music because that’s what the capacity crowd is experiencing. This was a public school modern dance performance choreographed by three remarkable teachers.But Project Dance at Schenectady High School’s auditorium on June 6 far transcended the expected line-up of participating students who would not necessarily have received creative training in a private dance studio.And yet very little about that evening’s performance distracted the viewer.  Members of each dance performance not only knew their moves, but many injected energy and a personal flair into the instant. This year the costumes were great; the lighting moved and the dancing was remarkable. This was about artistic expression; about precise coordination and the mastery of complicated moves and gestures. All the performers got it. And in this precious context everyone in the theater got it. This event was about the result of young adults working together; about a moment under the lights; about determined pride that they can do this exceeding well.And, this SHS experience clearly has positive implications for what each performer can accomplish in the future. Congratulations.Frank F. GilmoreSchenectadyHearings needed to reveal Mueller factsMarc Thiessen’s May 31 column, “Americans don’t want impeachment, but Dems won’t listen,” is misleading regarding the Mueller report.Mueller stated, “Under long standing [Justice] Department policy, a President cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office. That is unconstitutional. Charging the president with a crime, therefore, was not an option. If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”Mueller went on to say that the Special Council was not impeded from investigating and did find 10  instances of possible obstruction of justice, which was detailed in the report. He stated that even though the special counsel was prohibited from indicting the president, he implied that Congress could take the information and proceed accordingly.The report also contains grand jury and witness testimony corroborating the findings. Some of this is redacted and Congress has struggled to have the attorney general release the full report.Justin Amash, R-MI, held a town hall meeting in which he outlined the key parts of the report that informed him of his decision to impeach.An attendee said this was the first time she had learned of this information and only gets her information from conservative outlets.Because so few have actually read the report, it’s important for Congress to hold public committee hearings of witnesses so the people can have the information to determine the truth.Sandra J. NataleSaratoga Springs Grateful for student article on deafnessThank you for publishing the Student Gazette on June 7. We’d like to particularly thank Nia Roberts, who wrote “Five things you didn’t know about deaf people.”  It was outstanding, well-written, and hit home with our family.We have a deaf daughter, Kate, who attended the Capital Region BOCES Deaf and Hearing Impaired program from pre-school through 10th grade. In the spring of her sophomore year,  she visited a friend at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf. Kate left Schoharie that Friday as a deaf 10th-grade girl, but returned home a few days later as a young woman who identified as deaf. She was very articulate as to why she needed to be part of the larger deaf community, and there was no saying “no” to this young woman. Kate entered MSSD as a junior. She received her undergraduate degree from Gallaudet University and then earned master’s degrees in international relations from the University of Limerick, Ireland, and later from Gallaudet. After working for not-for-profit organizations serving the deaf, including in Haiti and Malawi, she is now on the faculty at Gallaudet University herself.We’ve attended Gallaudet University athletic events and theater productions over the years. If there is something that the deaf cannot do – except to hear – we have yet to discover it.Most deaf people we have met do not consider their deafness to be a disability. That, to us, is key. It’s about how you define yourself. Kudos to Nia for bringing deaf awareness to us all.Gail and Michael BreenSchoharie Isachsen will bring integrity to MiltonFor over 50 years, I have lived in the town of Milton. Elected town government officials have come and gone. Some of those folks have been very effective. Some, however, have not been. I was pleased to read that Ryan Isachsen, one of my fellow Ethics Board members in Milton, was running for Town Council. Ryan was part of the Ethics Board for a number of years, including one term as chairman.Ryan was always unbiased and fair in his assessment of the complaints brought before the board. Ryan never bowed to political pressure during his tenure on the Ethics Board.Ryan is a man of great pride in his work. He’s a local man with a wife and two children, not to mention his four dogs. He will work tirelessly for the benefit of all constituents of the town of Milton, with no partiality or favor to political party. He’s what we need in the town now. I’m a Democrat in a sea of Republicans; however, I have always voted for the folks I thought best suited for a position, not by party line. Please vote write in Ryan Isachsen on June 25. Polls open at noon.Suzanne CanellBallston Spa Get us Chick-fil-A and save the planetAccording to a National Geographic article, replacing the beef on your plate with carbon-light chicken will cut your dietary carbon footprint in half.The article states: “That’s according to a first-ever national study of U.S. eating habits and their carbon footprints.”Maybe now it’s time we fully embrace Chick-fil-A.There’s plenty of room up here in the north.

Dani Ceballos hails Alexandre Lacazette as Arsenal’s de facto No.10 and likens forward to Karim Benzema

first_imgDani Ceballos hails Alexandre Lacazette as Arsenal’s de facto No.10 and likens forward to Karim Benzema Ceballos has likened Lacazette’s role to Benzema’s at Real Madrid (Picture: Getty)Ceballos added: ‘When City pressed us we found spaces going out with our goalkeeper. ‘When you play with your goalkeeper you always have one more player: he is the one who has to hold the ball until a forward jumps to press it and there, through a third man, find the exit. ‘Our third man is Lacazette, who does what Karim does in Madrid.’ Advertisement Dani Ceballos says Alexandre Lacazette is key in the way Mikel Arteta sets up his team (Picture: Getty)Dani Ceballos has highlighted the important role Alexandre Lacazette plays in the way Mikel Arteta sets up his team at Arsenal and likened the forward’s position to that taken up by Karim Benzema at Real Madrid.On the face of it, Lacazette has had his worst season yet in front of goal for the Gunners, managing just 12 goals in all competitions compared to 19 last term and 17 in his debut campaign at the Emirates, and the 29-year-old has faced some criticism for his level of performance.Eddie Nketiah’s recent breakthrough means Lacazette is no longer guaranteed a starting spot and there have even been rumblings that Arsenal would be open to selling the striker this summer.

El Gobernador Wolf anuncia la inclusión de la identidad de género, la orientación o expresión sexual en la recopilación de datos sobre la COVID-19

first_imgEl Gobernador Wolf anuncia la inclusión de la identidad de género, la orientación o expresión sexual en la recopilación de datos sobre la COVID-19 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter May 13, 2020center_img Equality,  Español,  Press Release,  Public Health El Gobernador Tom Wolf dio otro paso más en defensa del trato justo y la inclusión de la comunidad LGBTQ de Pennsylvania al anunciar las maneras en que la comunidad se considerará en los datos sobre la COVID-19.A medida que los condados del estado pasan de la orden de quedarse en casa de la fase roja a los esfuerzos agresivos de mitigación de la fase amarilla, el Departamento de Salud realizará extensas investigaciones de historias clínicas como parte del rastreo de contactos en aquellos con resultado positivo para el virus.El departamento ha elegido trabajar con Sara Alert, una nueva plataforma de recopilación de datos y ha solicitado una modificación del sistema de la plataforma para recopilar datos sobre la orientación sexual e identidad de género (SOGI, por sus siglas en inglés). El departamento es uno de los primeros en adoptar la tecnología. Esta modificación del sistema sustentará a la plataforma para recoger estos datos en todos los estados y las entidades que la utilizan a medida que avanzamos.El departamento también solicitó a la eHealth Authority Board (Junta de Autoridad de Salud Electrónica) que las seis organizaciones de información de salud del estado trabajen para reflejar los datos de orientación sexual e identidad o expresión de género de registros de salud electrónicos que luego pueden ser utilizados por los proveedores de atención médica para informar los datos sobre la COVID-19 al departamento.Es prioridad asegurar que todas las personas en Pennsylvania que presentan síntomas de COVID-19 tengan acceso a las pruebas de diagnóstico. Con el fin de garantizar que Pennsylvania sea un estado saludable para todos y especialmente durante estos tiempos sin precedentes, la Administración Wolf solo se asociará con organizaciones y entidades que tengan un compromiso establecido con prácticas no discriminatorias en nuestra respuesta a la COVID-19.Se trata de una práctica que se hizo eco en la declaración del Gobernador sobre los estándares de atención no discriminatorios, anunciada el 30 de marzo.“Los estándares de atención de Pennsylvania en tiempos normales y de crisis se basan en el marco de la asignación ética. Esto significa que la atención se brinda en pie de igualdad a todas las poblaciones independientemente de la edad, la raza, el género, el credo, el color, la orientación sexual, la identidad o la expresión de género, la discapacidad, la etnia, la religión o el nivel socioeconómico del paciente.Desde la asunción a su cargo, el Gobernador Tom Wolf ha luchado por obtener todas las protecciones contra la discriminación para la comunidad LGBTQ de Pennsylvania.En abril, anunció la creación de un Grupo de trabajo para las disparidades de salud, presidido por el Vicegobernador John Fetterman, para abordar las necesidades únicas de las poblaciones vulnerables de Pennsylvania, que incluye a nuestra comunidad LGBTQ. Se recomendó el deseo de recopilar los datos sobre la orientación sexual e identidad de género (SOGI) en los casos de COVID-19 a favor de la defensa de los líderes de la comunidad al grupo de trabajo.Todos los residentes de Pennsylvania que sientan que ellos o un ser querido han sido discriminados de alguna manera pueden comunicarse con la Comisión de Relaciones Humanas de Pennsylvania aquí.View this information in English.last_img read more
