20 Tips For Hurricane Safety

Please enter your email address here 2. Have a “GO” bag: Always have a set of supplies ready to take with you on short notice. Non-perishable food, bottled water, extra clothing, flashlights and batteries, a NOAA weather radio, medicines, and a first aid kit are just a few of the items that will ensure your survival. Although you’ll see recommendations to have a 72 hour supply, this figure is arbitrary, and a week’s worth would be even better.3. Have cash on hand: Power for credit card verification could be down after a hurricane; if you don’t keep some cash on hand, you’ll have a power shortage: Purchasing power.Let’s say you haven’t received an evacuation order, and you’re going to ride out the storm in place. Here are some considerations you want to take into account: FOOD4. Keep it Cold: Have the refrigerator and freezer down to their coldest settings so that food will take longer to spoil.5. Collect Ice: Collect ice in plastic bags and place them throughout to prolong freshness. If there are open spots, fill Tupperware containers or plastic soda bottles/milk jugs with water, freeze them, and place them in the spaces. The fuller the fridge is, the longer the items in it will stay cool.6. Wrap It in Foil: Wrap food items in aluminum foil, eliminating air pockets, and cram the foil packs together as closely as possible.7. Eat the Perishables Now: Eat the perishables first, canned foods later.8. Keep It Closed: Don’t leave the refrigerator door open while deciding what food to take out. Visualize where a particular item is and then open the door. Close it as quickly as possible.WATER9. Water, Water everywhere: Have a stockpile of 5 gallon bottles of water or a plentiful supply of smaller bottles.10. Fill the Tub: Fill all bathtubs with water. You might think this is overkill, but every member of your family needs 1 gallon of water per day. It goes fast.11. Drink the Melted Ice: As refrigerated ice in containers melts, don’t waste it. Use it as an additional source of drinking water. Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom HITTING THE ROAD1. Make a G.O.O.D. (Get Out Of Dodge) decision: Rugged individualists may want to ride out the storm, but some coastal residents would be best served by hitting the road. When the authorities say it’s time to evacuate, you should be ready to go. Don’t forget to turn off the power, gas, and water before you leave.

Put Up The Shutters:  If you have hurricane shutters, put them up at least 24 hours before hurricane landfall. It’s no fun to have to stand on a ladder in gale force winds and pouring rain to install them. Been there, done that.13. Move Furniture/Plants Inside: Move the patio furniture and potted plants indoors. If you can’t for some reason, chain them together against an outer wall downwind from the direction of the storm.14. Pick a “Safe Room”: Choose a room in the interior of the home, preferably one without unshuttered windows.15. Place candles in pans: Candles can be knocked over by winds and cause fires. If you must use them, stick them in a pan with shiny sides that would be deep enough to cover the flame.16. Have Tarps at the Ready: Large tarps can be used to cover windows and, after the storm, to cover any areas of the roof that might have been damaged.OTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS17. The Kids: Have board games, toys, and books to keep the children’s minds off scary winds. If you’re evacuating, let kids bring their favorite stuffed animals, blanket, or pillow to keep them calm.18. Your Other Kids: Don’t forget to take into account the needs of your pets. Have food, water, and their favorite toy available, whether you leave or stay at home.19. Your Other, Other Kid: Make sure your car is in good working order and filled with gas. Having some spare gas cans will be useful in case of a shortage at the pumps, and can be used to run generators (although never inside).20. Keep your radio on: A NOAA weather radio, battery-powered or hand-cranked, will be an important source of information on the progress of the storm, and for community updates.Being prepared for a hurricane can make sure that the storm will be just a bump in the road, and not the end of the road for you and your family. Have a plan of action, get some supplies, and you’ll join the ranks of the few, the proud, the prepared!Joe Alton, M.D.  is a disaster preparedness expert, member of the Wilderness Medical Society, and NY Times/Amazon bestselling author of “The Survival Medicine Handbook: THE essential guide for when medical help is NOT on the way” and other books.

England knocked out of home World Cup by outstanding Wallabies

first_imgSunday Oct 4, 2015 England knocked out of home World Cup by outstanding Wallabies On Saturday night England became the first ever host nation to be knocked out at the group stages of the Rugby World Cup as Australia outplayed them in front of a packed house at Twickenham. The Wallabies were marshalled by the sensational Bernard Foley, as England struggled up front and lacked the firepower to break the opposition defences.Following a narrow loss to Wales, England needed to win to stay in the competition, but the 33-13 drubbing at home has meant that they have no chance of qualifying, despite still having one match left to play, against Uruguay.On a night when Australia’s most attacking threat, Israel Folau, had a fairly poor match, Foley and crew were able to create gaps in the English defence, while the superb David Pocock menaced the breakdown.Chris Robshaw and coach Stuart Lancaster will have the week from hell, having to answer to a brutal media response, and disappointed fans who expected a lot more, even if Pool A was always touted as the group of death.We’ll have more reaction from the match over the course of the next few daysGuard of Honour – the players formed a guard of honour as the hosts bowed outADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby , Rugby World Cup , Wallabies Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Health care for  gender-oppressed people complicated by COVID-19

first_imgHow are women and other gender-oppressed people, especially those from 15 to 44 who are of child-bearing age, being affected by the coronavirus COVID-19?All women and nonbinary people will be impacted in many ways — including reproductive health care and rights, work on the job and on “the second shift” in the home and as members of society.It’s essential to remember that Black and Brown people are always the hardest hit by all kinds of disruptions in racist, sexist, anti-LGBTQ2+ class society — from nature’s hurricanes (think Hurricane Katrina) to human-made economic crashes (think 1929 and 2008) to pandemics (think 1918).Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, there is no good news overall. But there are glimmers of hope and possibility.Retired New York City midwife Ellen Catalinotto shared some good news with Workers World: “In a webinar held by the American College of Nurse Midwives on March 21 participants learned that as of now data from China shows the virus is not transmitted from a pregnant woman to her fetus and there is no evidence of the virus in breast milk.“Many expectant parents are worried about giving birth in hospitals. They are concerned about risk of infection as well as restrictions in who may accompany the laboring patient. There is increasing interest in delivering in birth centers or at home. However, only low-risk patients are eligible and there are relatively few places where these services are available.”Activists demonstrate for reproductive rights for all gender-oppressed people in Mobile, Ala., May 31, 2019. Credit: StriveTelemedicine available for contraception …The role of telemedicine — online, remote medical care — offers many advantages for obtaining contraceptives. It keeps sick people from gathering, while protecting both patients and practitioners and is much less expensive.A March 18 article by rewire.news detailed information about a number of telemedicine providers. Patients must fill out a questionnaire on a website or app and then receive a prescription after a doctor reviews the information.Online sources include contraceptive provider PRJKT RUBY.  The company, which prescribes and ships to 49 states (except North Carolina), “has seen a 10 percent increase in patients in recent days.” CMO Dan Snyder predicts that will continue. Pill Club, which ships to 50 states, but can only prescribe in 37, “reported a 30 percent increase in the past week in prescriptions referred to them from other pharmacies.”Co-founded by a pediatrician at Stanford Medical School in California, Pandia Health, which presently prescribes in three states, but aims to partner with providers in 50, offers a virtual visit to a doctor for a prescription. Pandia Health Birth Control Fund offers financial assistance.Planned Parenthood Direct, an app-based service in 37 states, advises patients to contact a local care center for financial help. Nurx, available in 37 states, also tests for sexually transmitted illnesses and will soon offer coronavirus testing and consultations for those who have been exposed and have symptoms.… But not for abortion careMedical abortion care, which involves taking two pills, is restricted in many states due to anti-choice bias and not strictly medical science. As Dr. Daniel Grossman, an abortion provider and professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco, told rewire.news: “The effectiveness of medication abortions done by telemedicine is pretty much the same compared to having an in-person visit.”At present pills for medical abortion are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration under a so-called “Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategy,” which prohibits mailing drugs to patients. An experimental study in 11 states involving in-home medical abortion consultations, run by the nonprofit group Gynuity, was set up in 2016 with special FDA approval. It has successfully provided remote abortions for 600 patients.Under pressure from the pandemic, Dr. Grossman hopes the FDA will lift the REMS “at least temporarily,” as will states that currently ban telemedicine for medication abortions.Trump cuts in public health ‘exacerbate’ pandemicProbably the Trump administration’s worst attack on sexual and reproductive health and rights is the “domestic gag rule,” which went into effect last year on Aug. 19. The Trump revision of Title X regulations was that reproductive care and service providers at women’s health clinics could no longer offer referrals for abortion or provide abortions in the same facility. This has had a profound effect on 4 million poor Medicaid recipients, including women and gender-nonconforming people who are youth, people of color, those living in rural areas,  survivors of domestic violence and/or those living with disabilities.Guttmacher Institute’s latest statistics on March 11 show that the gag rule has reduced Title X funding by at least 46 percent after about 1,000 clinics left the network: “The Trump administration’s ongoing attempts to undermine the [Affordable Care Act] and reshape Medicaid to better fit its conservative ideology have put the entire U.S. health insurance system on shaky footing in ways that may hamper the COVID-19 response.”The report continues: “And the administration’s broadly discriminatory and xenophobic policies — including policies targeting people with low incomes, people of color, LGBTQ+ people and immigrants — will heighten the challenges of combatting an epidemic for communities that are already marginalized.”The report further warned that reproductive justice advocates “need to guard against the possibility that [the administration] will seize the opportunity of COVID-19 to further restrict people’s fundamental rights and access to health care.”Part 2 of this topic will focus on women and gender-nonconforming people at work on the job and on“the second shift” at home and as members of society.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ali Lmrabet ends hunger strike – Campaign for his release continues

first_imgNews Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists RSF_en June 24, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ali Lmrabet ends hunger strike – Campaign for his release continues Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today welcomed jailed newspaper editor Ali Lmrabet’s decision to call off his hunger strike after 50 days. The decision was announced yesterday by Prince Moulay Hicham, King Mohammed’s cousin, at a news conference in Casablanca in which the participants included Lmrabet’s lawyers and sisters and Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.Lmrabet has lost 22 kg since beginning his hunger strike on 6 May, and he is very weak. Ménard called for him to be given all necessary medical tests to ensure that he does not suffer serious aftereffects, and for him to be allowed to receive a visit from his personal physician, Jamila Rhandy, who has not been able to see him for the past week.Reporters Without Borders said Lmrabet’s decision to end his hunger strike was a relief to all his friends and colleagues but was not a victory. Certain sources close to the government had said King Mohammed might issue a royal pardon, but this had not yet happened. Lmrabet was still in prison, he still had to serve a three-year jail sentence for his opinions and his two satirical weeklies were still banned, so the international campaign had to go on, the organisation said.Reporters Without Borders confirmed that it would continue its own efforts to obtain Lmrabet’s release. This will include a campaign to alert tourists travelling to Morocco to the other side of a country that is subject to royal caprice and press freedom violations.”Keeping Lmrabet in prisons signals a step back for freedom of expression in Morocco and an increase in authoritarianism by the monarchy,” Ménard said. “No one in the Kingdom of Morocco or abroad should resign themselves to this violation of freedoms.”Lmrabet is Reporters Without Borders’ correspondent in Morocco as well as being the owner and editor of the French-language Demain Magazine and its Arabic-language version Douman. He has been in prison since 21 May when a court in Rabat convicted him of “insulting the person of the king”, “offence against territorial integrity” and “offence against the monarchy.” The court sentenced him to four years in prison, banned his two publications and fined him 20,000 dirhams (about 2,000 euros). He was rushed from prison to Avicenne hospital in Rabat on 26 May, four days after being jailed.An appeal court on 17 June upheld the conviction while reducing the prison term to three years. Lmrabet’s lawyers have appealed against this decision to the court of cassation.
