"Harbinger of a new era in Georgia health care?" | Georgia Health News | 09/29/13

"Harbinger of a new era in Georgia health care?" | Georgia Health News | 09/29/13 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it

Leading public health and global health organizations such as the CDC. World-class medical schools and universities. A health care IT industry that’s called the biggest in the country.

 

Atlanta and Georgia have tremendous assets in the field of health. But is there any teamwork among them, any synergy, any collaboration? Russ Lipari, who runs Validus Group, an Atlanta-based corporate development, government affairs and strategic advisory firm, sees a big opportunity to spark new partnerships among health organizations in the region.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

This is the kind of "partnership work" that the Frontier Medicine Better Health Partnership is innovating in Montana for Frontier/Rural America.  Check us out at our website: www.FMBHP.org.

A Hospital Crisis Is Killing Rural Communities. This State Is ‘Ground Zero.’ | Huffington Post | 09/22/2017

Inside three Georgia counties that have struggled to keep their hospitals ― and futures ― alive.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: "Inside three Georgia counties that have struggled to keep their hospitals ― and futures ― alive....Wheeler County, Candler County and Cook County.

 

Rural hospitals are in danger across the country, their closures both a symptom of economic trouble in small-town America and a catalyst for further decline.

Since 2010, 82 rural hospitals have closed nationwide. As many as 700 more are at risk of closing within the next 10 years, according to Alan Morgan, the CEO of the National Rural Health Association, a nonprofit professional organization that lobbies on rural health issues.

The reasons are complex, woven into the fabric of a changing economy and an evolving health care system. But these rural hospital closures are hitting the southern United States the hardest.

“The Southeast of the U.S. is where things are going horribly wrong. You’ve got higher levels of obesity, diabetes, hypertension ― you pick up any health disparity or measure and it’s there,” Morgan said. “And again this is where now we are shutting down rural hospitals.”

INSIGHT:  Written by a Republican turned Democrat

Pretty good actually.

"What about Bernie? I’ve been a Democrat for 2 months and 6 days. That is 2 months and 6 days longer than Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Please note I put the letter “I” in his Senate Party/State designation. He is an Independent. He is not and never has been a Democrat.

Throughout the Democratic Primary Campaign, I checked his Senate site weekly. It wasn’t to see if he was doing his job as a US Senator, he wasn’t doing his job. He was out campaigning. I checked to see if that “I” next to his name changed to “D”. It never changed and that is because he didn't join. He didn't write the letter to the Secretary of the Senate to change his party.

It didn’t change. The reason it didn’t change is he didn’t join the Democratic Party at that time, just as he isn’t a member now. For him to run as a Democrat while rejecting the Democratic Party is dishonest."

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT:The biggest celestial event of 2017 will take place on Monday, Aug. 21, but you may miss it if you do not know precisely when to look.

The moon’s shadow will travel from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States with only a narrow zone, called the path of totality, experiencing a total solar eclipse.

In this path, the moon will block out the sun completely for less than three minutes, so being in the path at the correct time is extremely important.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: It's been 40 years since a total solar eclipse was visible in the United States.

On Monday, Aug. 21, the event that millions have anticipated will unfold when the moon passes directly in front of the sun.

The path of totality stretches from Lincoln Beach, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina. In this swath, the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's atmosphere, known as the corona. During an eclipse, a halo appears around the sun.

Outside of the path of totality, observers will see a partial eclipse.

However, storms and cloudy conditions may spoil the view for some.

The Great American Total Solar Eclipse will race across the U.S. on Aug. 21, 2017, casting a shadow over 21 of the country's national parks coast to coast.

It's been nearly 100 years since a total solar eclipse has traveled the width of the U.S. and has been visible from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. During the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, the disk of the moon will move directly in front of the sun and will cast a shadow across the country.

The path of totality for the Aug. 21 solar eclipse is about 70 miles (113 kilometers) wide and stretches from Oregon to South Carolina, encompassing 21 U.S. national parks or historical monuments and scenic trails.

African Americans are the only racial group the Census Bureau identifies that has been left behind. White, Asian and Hispanic households have all seen at least modest income gains since 2000."

In any event, Harvey puts an exclamation mark on the pattern of disastrous rain events in recent years and may be a harbinger of more such events in the coming decades.
 
“Expect #HarveyFlood record will be broken in 5, 15, 25 years from now — sooner rather than later,” tweeted David Titley, professor of meteorology at Penn State."

Detailed View of a Solar Eclipse Corona
Image Credit & Copyright: Miloslav Druckmüller (Brno U. of Tech.), Martin Dietzel, Peter Aniol, Vojtech Rušin

Explanation: Only in the fleeting darkness of a total solar eclipse is the light of the solar corona easily visible. Normally overwhelmed by the bright solar disk, the expansive corona, the sun's outer atmosphere, is an alluring sight. But the subtle details and extreme ranges in the corona's brightness, although discernible to the eye, are notoriously difficult to photograph. Pictured here, however, using multiple images and digital processing, is a detailed image of the Sun's corona taken during the 2008 August total solar eclipse from Mongolia. Clearly visible are intricate layers and glowing caustics of an ever changing mixture of hot gas and magnetic fields. Bright looping prominences appear pink just above the Sun's limb. A similar solar corona might be visible through clear skies in a thin swath across the USA during a total solar eclipse that occurs just one week from tomorrow.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: On Aug. 21, 2017, a once-in-a-lifetime celestial event will give Earthlings across the United States a dazzling sight (through protective eye gear, of course). On that day, the moon will pass directly between the Earth and the sun, and as it does so it casts a shadow on Earth. The part of the shadow that obscures our planet is called the umbral shadow, or the umbra. For people who are standing on the parts of the planet within the umbra get to see a total solar eclipse — the magnitude is 1.0 or greater. But if you are outside the path of the moon's full shadow or umbra then you see varying magnitudes of the solar eclipse. Here's a look at the path of the total solar eclipse, called the Great American Total Solar Eclipse, by state, so that you can make plans to be in the best spot for the spectacle. Make sure if you do look at the eclipse that you do so through protective eclipse viewers.

"Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad rebels in Syria, a move sought by Moscow" | The Washington Post | 07/19/2017 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
Closing the secret program is an acknowledgment of the limits on Washington’s ability to oust the Syrian president.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

..... #AnotherWinForPutin #AnotherLostForAmerica

INSIGHT: Toward the end of the Obama administration, some officials advocated ending the CIA program, arguing that the rebels would be ineffective without a major escalation in U.S. support. But the program still had the support of a majority of top Obama advisers, who argued that the United States couldn’t abandon its allies on the ground and give up on the moderate opposition because of the damage that it would do to U.S. standing in the region.

Even those who were skeptical about the program’s long-term value, viewed it as a key bargaining chip that could be used to wring concessions from Moscow in negotiations over Syria’s future.

“People began thinking about ending the program, but it was not something you’d do for free,” said a former White House official. “To give [the program] away without getting anything in return would be foolish.”

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: "The recent request from President Donald Trump’s vote fraud commission for a mountain of sensitive data from the states sparked a backlash and baffled many officials — not only because of concerns about privacy and security but because an organization already exists doing much of the same work.

“There’s no reason to re-invent the wheel when we’re already here…and we do it very well,” said Shane Hamlin, executive director of the Election Registration Information Center, also known as ERIC.

ERIC is a non-profit group currently made up of 20 states — both red and blue — and the District of Columbia that shares large amounts of sensitive voter data to root out possible fraud, ensure more accurate voter rolls and encourage registration."

Republican governors have (successfully) sought to sabotage the program.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: "When he talks about his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, President Trump almost always asserts that Obamacare is “exploding.” Republican members of Congress make similar claims, insisting that Obamacare is unsustainable—and that they therefore have no choice but to “repeal and replace” it.

There is some basis for this argument. More than 1,300 counties only have one insurer in their exchanges, meaning there is no competition. But there is a nuance that Republicans willfully ignore: This is a problem of their own creation that is largely confined to red states.

 

Where Republican governors have sought to sabotage the program, they have largely succeeded. Where Democratic governors have tried to make the ACA work, they too have largely succeeded.

Here are the basic numbers. In states with Republican governors, more than 40 million people live in counties with only one insurer. In states with Democratic governors, there are 10.7 million people who live in such counties."
