The royal couple are tipped to be the toast of the celebrity circuit but they will have to work hard to maintain their A-list status

Touching down to a city in lockdown cannot have been what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had in mind when they had imagined starting a new life in Los Angeles. With a stay-at-home order in place, all activities usually associated with the city – premieres, parties, events and schmoozing – were on hold when they reportedly arrived last month, and studios had stopped production.

The NBA superstar was killed in a helicopter crash in January along with eight others, including his daughter Gianna. On Saturday he was confirmed as one of nine new members of basketball’s hall of fame. Bryant played his entire, 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he won five championships and was named an All-Star on 18 occasions. He retired in 2016 as the NBA’s third-highest all-time scorer. He also won gold medals with Team USA at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

How Policymakers Can Keep Food Flowing and on the Table During This Pandemic   

Cache   

EDITOR’S NOTE: This op-ed was published with permission of SPUR, an urban planning policy group in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, its immediate impact is most acutely felt in the loss of life, sickness, and social distancing we are all witnessing in the Bay Area. But, now only a couple weeks into “shelter-in-place” orders here in California and elsewhere across the country, the secondary impact on the economy is crashing down on us.

Huge sectors of the economy have ground to a halt, resulting in businesses shrinking dramatically or closing up shop altogether, and laying off millions of people. In California alone, 1 million people filed for unemployment benefits in just two weeks. Looking ahead, projections on the number of people who might lose their job vary widely, but they are all grim and of historic proportions. Job losses are already leading record numbers of people to apply for CalFresh benefits (formerly food stamps) through state’s online application, GetCalFresh.

​Applications for CalFresh submitted online through GetCalFresh nearly quadrupled in one week as shelter in place went into effect. (Source: Tracey Patterson, GetCalFresh, via Twitter)

Amidst this economic havoc, we all still need to eat. This means we need both a functioning food supply chain and people need to be able to access food.

To keep food flowing and avoid historic levels of hunger, policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels can, and should, take immediate steps. While some important measures have been taken including Congress providing additional CalFresh (formerly food stamp) benefits for many people and authorizing funds to families whose kids are missing school meals; the Governor directing the national guard to assist food banks; and local shelter in place orders recognizing food businesses as essential services — more needs to be done.

After talking with policy experts and organizations working all across the food system in the Bay Area, we compiled a list of specific actions that agency heads and elected officials can take right now. This is by no means a comprehensive list — but it’s a start and we encourage policymakers to act quickly to dampen the impact of the virus — on farms, at family’s dining room tables, and everywhere in between.

City and County Policymakers Should:

Ensure county social services agencies are adequately staffed to process the surge of new applications that has begun.

In California, many of our social safety net programs like CalFresh and CalWorks (formerly known as welfare) are administered at the county level by Social Services agencies. These agencies are about to see an unprecedented flood of applicants. Without adequate staffing and streamlined processes, they will become a bottleneck that slows food assistance and cash aid, primarily funded by the federal government, from reaching people who need it. San Francisco’s Human Services Agency recently adapted well to receive a surge of applications for CalFresh after a policy change that went into effect in 2019 — and agencies in counties throughout the region will need to match or surpass that level of effort, with even less lead time.

Provide funding to expand programs that supplement government food assistance programs, like healthy food incentives, food vouchers, fruit and vegetable prescription programs, and food pantries.

CalFresh is a critical lifeline for people struggling to make ends meet. But, benefits often aren’t enough to buy enough food. Healthy food incentive programs like Double Up Food Bucks, Market Match, ¡Más Fresco!, and Fresh Creds all provide matching dollars to people using CalFresh that help stretch food budgets further. CalFresh also falls short because you can’t generally access benefits if you don’t have a US citizen in your family. Because of this, local governments can’t rely on CalFresh to reach everyone who is food insecure. Instead, local governments should also direct funding to programs that don’t have the same eligibility requirements as CalFresh. Programs like Vouchers for Veggies (already operating in San Francisco and Los Angeles), for example, have already been working well and can scale more broadly. The local food banks operating in SPUR’s geography (San Francisco, Alameda, and Santa Clara counties) are already operating on overdrive and they too can use financial support to meet the need that is only going to grow, as can programs such as Meals on Wheels.

School districts should make it as easy as possible for parents to pick up “to go” meals for their kids at emergency food access sites.

Across the Bay Area school districts have rapidly moved from in-school meals to serving breakfast and lunch at community-based pick-up locations. And just this past week, the USDA waived the rule stipulating that the school district cannot receive the traditional per-meal reimbursement unless a child is present while still encouraging local administrators to ensure “program integrity.” Stopping fraud is an important concern, but any process that local districts develop to identify eligible families should keep the barriers to accessing this school meals substitute as low as possible during this extraordinary time.

Lift restrictions on delivery routes during the crisis

Keeping the food supply chain running smoothly during this time includes allowing food delivery trucks to move around at hours that may usually be restricted. Los Angeles, for example, in its emergency declaration, lifted its normal “delivery curfew”. As the California Grocers’ Association has highlighted, mayors and county executives should recognize that for the time being, regulations cannot assume a business-as-usual context.

At each U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farmers Market, a sample of what $10 of USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits can purchase. 

Allow farmers’ markets to continue operating

Farmer’s markets not only provide fresh food to thousands of families around the Bay Area, but they also provide the primary place where local farmers sell their products and make a living. Like with grocery stores, the Governor deemed farmers’ markets an “essential service” that can remain open during the statewide shelter in place order. Despite this, some local officials have shut down farmers markets. Local leaders should ensure that farmers’ markets are allowed to remain open and follow state guidance to reduce the risk of exposure. The Community Alliance with Family Farmers can provide support on this issue.

State Policymakers Should:

Maximize flexibility so that as many people as possible can sign up for, and easily remain on, CalFresh

Governor Newsom, through an Executive Order, and the state Department of Social Services, through a waiver they received from USDA, have temporarily removed some of the requirements for documentation that often results in people losing CalFresh and other benefits they would usually be able to keep but for missing a paperwork deadline. This is an important first step to help keep people connected to food assistance when county and state administrative capacity is strained.

Congress’ second package of relief legislation authorized USDA to waive a number of the onerous requirements people face when signing up for SNAP/CalFresh. California’s Department of Social Services should seek a waiver from the USDA to maximize the flexibility allowed and make CalFresh as easy to access as possible for the surge of new applicants who need food assistance quickly.

Enroll as many people as quickly as possible in “Pandemic EBT”

Additionally, that same legislation also allows states to provide “Pandemic EBT,” which is money for food on a debit card issued by the state provided to families with school-age children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals and are no longer receiving meals at school. The state Department of Education and Department of Social Services should make it as streamlined as possible for parents of kids who were on school meals to get these benefits by: identifying matches between the school systems’ and Department of Social Services’ databases, enrolling families quickly, and focusing on opt-out mechanisms, rather than more cumbersome opt-in options.

Expand other federally funded food assistance programs

California Food Policy Advocates has a great set of additional recommendations that state agencies, including the Department of Social Services, Department of Education, and Department of Public Health, can take to maximize the impact of food assistance programs funded by the federal government such as WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) and the Child and Adult Care Food Program.

The CA Meals for Kids mobile app connects families with nearby afterschool and summer-meal programs.

Classify grocery retail workers as emergency employees in order to extend additional benefits.

Grocery retailer workers are considered “essential” during the pandemic yet they do not have paid sick leave, putting both themselves and the customers they serve in danger. Extending additional benefits including paid sick leave and childcare allows these employees to take care of themselves and serve the community. The United Food and Commercial Workers are pursuing this intervention in California, following implementation in Michigan, Minnesota and Vermont.

Implement safety protocols for grocery retail, drug retail and food delivery employees.

Councilmembers in Los Angeles have called for safety protocols and worker protections at the local level. In addition, New York has outlined a number of best practices for grocery retail. The United Food and Commercial Workers are pushing for a number of these policy changes which are examples of how California can support essential service employees.

Provide additional funding for emergency food providers.

The state of California has already recognized the importance of supporting the state’s food banks with state funds. While the most recent rescue package from Congress is likely to include more than $400 million for food banks nationwide, in California alone the need for funds could total one-quarter of that amount. State lawmakers should work with the California Association of Food Banks to identify and fill any remaining funding gaps in the weeks and months to come.

Federal Policymakers Should:

USDA should expand the SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot.

Currently, USDA allows people to use their SNAP benefits to buy groceries online for delivery in five pilot states. The USDA should both expand that pilot to as many states as possible, including California, and should also bring in as many additional stores as possible into the program. Food delivery is key for those who are unable to leave the house and high-risk populations during shelter in place. The California Department of Social Services has requested this intervention and notes that if the Federal Government approves online ordering they can implement online ordering within two weeks.

USDA should suspend its pursuit of new changes to SNAP that would drastically reduce access to food

Last year, USDA proposed three new rules that would, if implemented, drastically reduce SNAP access and benefits. At a time when Congress and the White House are rightly focused on increasing SNAP access, it does not make sense for USDA to move forward with these counterproductive rules.

Many farmers markets accept SNAP/EBT, but SNAP benefits are typically not extensive enough, and we recommend an across-the-board 15% increase in benefits to address this gap.

Congress should increase the base-level SNAP benefit by at least 15 percent

As the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has pointed out, SNAP benefits are already inadequate in many cases and as we move into a period of high unemployment, that will be even more true. An across-the-board increase of SNAP benefits by 15 percent would help close the gap.

Weekly reports of job losses and business closure make clear that we are about to go through a period of economic hardship in the US that is only rivaled by the Great Depression. Thankfully, since that time, policymakers have learned that there are steps local, state, and the federal government can take to blunt the blow of an economic shock. But those steps only work if they are taken and, given the magnitude of what we’re facing, there are immediate policy changes needed in every aspect of our food system.

Koronawirus: aktualizacja – 2 kwietnia   

Cache   

Liczba potwierdzonych zarażeń koronawirusem przekroczyła już 1 mln. Jeszcze niecałe pięć miesięcy temu, kiedy w chińskim mieście Wuhan odnotowywano pierwsze przypadki, świat nie spodziewał się nadchodzącego niebezpieczeństwa.

Były komisarz amerykańskiej Agencji Żywności i Leków (FDA) Scott Gottlieb powiedział w wywiadzie dla CNBC, że koronawirus nadal będzie stanowił zagrożenie w okresie jesiennym, jeśli nie zostanie wynaleziony skuteczny lek. "Jeśli nie będziemy mieć [sprawdzonego leczenia], wirus wróci jesienią i dalej będzie ograniczał nasze życie" - ostrzegł Gottlieb. - "Będzie krążył gdzieś w tle. Konsumenci nie będą kupować. Ludzie będą bali się wyjść na dwór i część z nich będzie dalej ulegać wirusowi."

Łączna liczba zachorowań: ponad 1,01 mln

Łączna liczba zgonów: przynajmniej 52 000

Łączna liczba wyzdrowień: przynajmniej 212 000

Na dobrej drodze

Dyrektor National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) dr Anthony Fauci poinformował w czwartek, że Moderna (MRNA  ) prawdopodobnie wypuści na rynek swoją szczepionkę przeciw COVID-19 za 12-18 miesięcy. 16 marca spółka rozpoczęła pierwsze testy leku na ludziach.

"Zbieranie danych, które upewnią nas, że możemy przejść do fazy drugiej, potrwa kilka miesięcy... Ostateczną radą na wirusa, który może powrócić, mogłaby być szczepionka" - powiedział Fauci podczas konferencji prasowej w Białym Domu. - "Tak samo jak w przypadku szczepionek na inne choroby, które były plagą w przeszłości, a o których teraz nawet nie myślimy."

FDA wyraziło zgodę na używanie w USA opracowanych przez Cellex Inc. testów na obecność przeciwciał koronawirusa. Wszystkie istniejące już badania polegają na wykrywaniu u pacjentów oznak zarażenia, ale test Cellex pozwoli lekarzom ustalić, czy dana osoba była kiedykolwiek chora na COVID-19.

Nadzór polityczny

Spikerka Izby Reprezentantów USA Nancy Pelosi zapowiedziała utworzenie dwupartyjnej komisji nadzorującej odpowiedź administracji Trumpa na pandemię, a także przebieg wdrażania pakietu stymulacyjnego.

"Komisja będzie upoważniona do zbadania każdego aspektu odpowiedzi rządu federalnego na koronawirusa, co pozwoli upewnić się, że pieniądze podatników są wydawane mądrze w celu ratowania ich życia i wspierania naszej gospodarki" - napisała Pelosi w liście do Partii Demokratycznej.

Powołanie komisji ma na celu kontrolowanie bieżących działań rządu federalnego, a nie oceny sytuacji po zażegnaniu kryzysu. Podczas czwartkowej konferencji prasowej prezydent Stanów Zjednoczonych skrytykował Demokratów za otwieranie śledztwa w czasie pandemii.

"Chciałbym przypomnieć każdemu w stolicy naszego kraju, a szczególnie w Kongresie, że nie czas na politykę i niekończące się partyjne śledztwa... Polowanie na czarownice za polowaniem. Koniec końców, przegranymi są organizatorzy tego polowania... i to wielkimi przegranymi" - stwierdził Trump.

Nowe przeznaczenie

Francuska policja poinformowała w czwartek, że znajdująca się pod Paryżem hala największego na świecie targu żywności zostanie przekształcona w tymczasową kostnicę. We Francji na koronawirusa zmarło już ponad 5000 osób, co doprowadziło do napięć między szpitalami a domami pogrzebowymi, szczególnie w okolicach stolicy.

"Ta lokacja umożliwi przechowywanie w najbardziej godnych i akceptowalnych z sanitarnego punku widzenia warunkach trumien zmarłych czekających na pogrzeb lub kremację z Francji czy zza granicy" - oznajmiła policja. Hala będzie funkcjonować jako kostnica od piątku.

Gubernator stanu Nowy Jork Andrew Cuomo ogłosił, że centrum konferencyjne Javitsa na Manhattanie zostanie przystosowane do leczenia pacjentów z koronawirusem. Budynek zostanie wyposażony w 1000 łóżek szpitalnych. Liczba zgonów w wyniku wirusa w Nowym Jorku przekroczyła 1500.

Brak sprzętu

Jako że prowadzone są nowe badania dotyczące transmisji koronawirusa przez osoby, u których nie wystąpiły jeszcze objawy, władze Los Angeles i Nowego Jorku zaleciły mieszkańcom noszenie maseczek ochronnych w miejscach publicznych. W tym samym czasie lekarze i pielęgniarki ryzykują życie swoje i swoich najbliższych, ratując ludzi bez odpowiedniego zabezpieczenia przed zarażeniem.

Departament Sprawiedliwości oraz Departament Zdrowia i Usług Społecznych USA walczą z niedoborem odzieży ochronnej, planując zaopatrzyć szpitale i ośrodki leczenia w Nowym Jorku i New Jersey w ponad 500 000 masek skonfiskowanych sprzedawcom zawyżającym ceny. Amazon (AMZN  ) zadecydował, że maski N95 nie będą już sprzedawane za pośrednictwem strony internetowej ogółowi społeczeństwa.

Bill Withers, Singer-Songwriter Of 'Ain't No Sunshine,' Has Died At Age 81

Bill Withers, the sweet-voiced baritone behind such classic songs as "Ain't No Sunshine," "Lean on Me" and "Use Me" has died. Withers was 81 years old. According to a family statement given to the Associated Press, he died Monday in Los Angeles due to heart complications. (On Friday morning, Withers' official Facebook page shared an obituary from Billboard that references the AP's reporting.)

Withers, who disdained the machinations of the record industry, stopped recording in 1985, just 14 years after he became a star with his debut album, Just As I Am.

The son of a West Virginia coal miner, William Harrison Withers, Jr. was born July 4, 1938. He grew up with a stutter and was one of 13 children in his family. Only six survived infancy.

He was the first man in his family not to go into the mines, and he couldn't wait to get away from the place where he grew up, as he told NPR's Morning Edition in 2015.

Withers' father died when he was just 13. Soon, another tragedy struck the family. "My social idol was my older brother," Withers told NPR. "He got hurt in the coal mines — he got crushed by a coal cart — so, he wasn't able to work in there anymore." Withers' brother became a mailman, and he saw a way out of the mines for himself, too.

Withers joined the Navy after graduating from high school in 1956. After a nine-year stint, he moved first to San Jose, Calif. and, a couple of years later, to Los Angeles. For a while, he was a milkman, and then worked in a factory making airplane parts. In the evenings, he would sit in as a singer at small clubs around the city. Between shifts, he learned how to play the guitar and began writing his own songs, which he began shopping around to labels.

Withers was first signed by Clarence Avant at Sussex Records; Avant brought in Booker T. Jones to produce 1971's Just As I Am. (Stephen Stills played lead guitar.)

The album resulted in the hit single "Ain't No Sunshine," which went to No. 3 on the Billboard charts and won a Grammy for Best R&B Song the following year.

But, as Withers told NPR, "Ain't No Sunshine" had started out as a B-side; label reps didn't see the song's promise. "The disc jockeys, God bless 'em, turned it over, and that's how I got started," he said, adding a zinger: "I call A&R ["artists and repertoire" decision-makers at record labels] 'antagonistic & redundant,' and that's why — because they make those genius decisions like that."

Just As I Am's cover shows Withers standing at the doorway of the factory where he still worked while he recorded the project, carrying his lunch pail. At that point, Withers was already 32 years old.

The following year, Withers released a second album, Still Bill. Its first single, "Lean on Me," went to No. 1; the album's second single, "Use Me," went to No. 2. Withers also became an in-demand songwriter for other artists, composing for such stars as Gladys Knight and José Feliciano. He made two more albums for Sussex — 1973's Live At Carnegie Hall and 1974's +'Justments — before the label folded.

Withers signed with the powerhouse label Columbia Records in 1975, but it was not a happy arrangement. Withers wanted to continue writing his own songs but later, he said in interviews that Columbia tried to mold him into someone he wasn't — urging him to record Elvis Presley covers, for example. Columbia thought he was difficult to work with. Whatever transpired, it was clear that the two sides just didn't mesh.

Not one of Withers' five albums for Columbia reached the Top 40. In 1981, he had his last big hit: "Just The Two Of Us," a duet with saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. Four years later, his recording deal with Columbia ended, and Withers, for all intents and purposes, walked away from the public eye as a performing artist. (He occasionally continued to write songs for others, however: for example, he wrote for Jimmy Buffett's 2004 album License To Chill, as well as for George Benson's 2009 project Songs And Stories.)

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. At the time, he told Rolling Stone: "I see it as an award of attrition. What few songs I wrote during my brief career, there ain't a genre that somebody didn't record them in. I'm not a virtuoso, but I was able to write songs that people could identify with. I don't think I've done bad for a guy from Slab Fork, West Virginia."

I’m a sucker for juxtapositions and Manuela, located in the downtown LA Arts District has it in spades. There’s graffiti, gardens with chickens and finger limes, a big expansive dining space that basically feels open air inside a warehouse, and a Los Angeles native making delicious fried chicken and biscuits with butter, all within a gallery complex as a creative expression of an art aesthetic. Whew. Sign me up. Chef Kris Tominaga, Manuela’s executive chef, was the inspiration for my LA visit because I wanted to explore “the Southern culinary realm” much further than just geography. Kris’s creative imagination has been captured by the idea of Southern cuisine, first notably with another Southern Fork alum Brian Dunsmoor, and I was interested in finding out how the cuisine shifts when on Manuela’s plates. And so yes, I went to LA in part to have a fried chicken and biscuits discussion, fried chicken that is now more available than just Sundays since Manuela has pivoted to takeout in the midst of the pandemic.

REPS LIEU AND GALLEGO CALL FOR INVESTIGATION INTO NAVY DECISION TO REMOVE CAPTAIN CONCERNED ABOUT CORONAVIRUS    

Cache   

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) and Congressman Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) called for an investigation into whether the Secretary of the Navy acted inappropriately by relieving an aircraft carrier Captain who expressed concern about coronavirus spreading among servicemembers in the Captain's charge.  

In the letter, the Members wrote:

Dear Acting Inspector General Fine:

 As veterans, we were taught that protecting the health and safety of troops was one of the highest priorities of any commander. As Members of Congress, we are disturbed that Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly relieved Captain Brett Crozier of command of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt. Captain Crozier had written a letter to his chain of command that requested the majority of the personnel be removed from the aircraft carrier because Covid-19 was spreading though the ship. Secretary Modly’s personnel action looks like retaliation and sends the message that the Navy does not want commanders to speak out to protect personnel. We request an investigation into whether the action by Secretary Modly was appropriate or legal.  

The letter by Captain Crozier requesting removal of personnel from the aircraft carrier was blunt and stark. He wrote “We are not at war. Sailors do not need to die. If we do not act now, we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset—our Sailors.” Captain Crozier noted that “[d]ue to a warship’s inherent limitations of space,” it was not possible to follow official guidelines for quarantine and social distancing. He warned that “The spread of the disease is ongoing and accelerating.”

Although Captain Crozier’s letter appeared in the press, Secretary Modly did not accuse Captain Crozier of providing the letter to the press when he relieved him of command on April 2. It also appears Captain Crozier was absolutely correct: personnel needed to be removed from the aircraft carrier as soon as possible in order to prevent further spread of Covid-19 to our sailors.

Based on the above, it appears a prima facie case for retaliation by the Navy against Captain Crozier may have been established. We urge you to open an investigation into this matter as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

 

Ted W. Lieu

Ruben Gallego

Asian Americans speak out after rise in hate crimes during coronavirus: "We are all human. We are all one."   

Cache   

At a time when most people are staying inside fearing the same thing – coronavirus – one group is fearing for their safety in the outside world because of something else: Racism.

One group in California documenting hate crimes and discrimination targeting Asian-Americans said it had received reports of 550 instances in the week after it launched the effort. 

In New York, the NYPD made two hate crime arrests in cases involving assailants who made anti-Asian statements.

In Philadelphia, a graphic video recently surfaced on social media showing multiple young people surrounding an Asian, striking him in the head and he falls to the ground, according to CBS Philly. 

In Los Angeles, a flyer in posted in the Carson area, with a fake seal of the World Health Organization, told residents to avoid Asian-American businesses, according to Reuters. 

Those are just some recent examples of anti-Asian incidents. The Southern Poverty Law Center blamed President Trump's "racist and xenophobic language" when speaking about COVID-19 for "creating a climate of hate that is permeating the country and putting people at risk." Mr. Trump has several times referred to the virus as the "Chinese virus."

"There has been an increase in reports of bias-related attacks against Asians and Asian Americans in communities and online," the organization said.

On March 23, Mr. Trump tweeted support for the community: "It is very important that we totally protect our Asian American community in the United States, and all around the world. They are amazing people, and the spreading of the Virus...is NOT their fault in any way, shape, or form. They are working closely with us to get rid of it. WE WILL PREVAIL TOGETHER!"

Still, several lawmakers have spoken out against the president and his use of  the "Chinese virus" to refer to COVID-19.

"Asian Americans will likely encounter more discrimination because of your tweet below," said Ted Lieu, a Democrat from California, referring to one of Mr. Trump's tweets. "Please stop your unnecessary rhetoric. #COVID19 is now an American virus, an Italian virus, a Spanish virus. We all are impacted & we all need to work together," Lieu wrote. 

Lieu has responded to several tweets from Mr. Trump and the White House, writing that their "language will cause more discrimination against Asian Americans," and asking to "stop dividing Americans."

Other organizations are trying to combat anti-Asian stereotypes, too. Phenomenal Women, an organization with several initiatives for social causes, launched a campaign in response to the racism experienced by the Asian community in the wake of the Coronavirus.

Several celebrities, including fashion designer Phillip Lim and journalist Ann Curry,  have supported the organization by sporting its "Phenomenally Asian" t-shirts. All net proceeds from the Phenomenally Asian collection will benefit the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum, Phenomenal Women told CBS News.

Daniel Dae Kim, who announced he has coronavirus, has also used his platform to speak out against anti-Asian hate. "People have been asking me why I've been silent in the face of the blatant acts of racism against Asian people during this outbreak. The truth is there have been so many it's been too heartbreaking to comment on all of them," he wrote on Twitter.

The actor also wrote that the coronavirus "doesn't care what race, gender, religion or sexuality we are. Ironically, it knows better than we do a lesson I wish we could all learn, once and for all: that we are all human. We are all one."

In an essay for People Magazine, TV personality Jeannie Mai said, "It feels like there's two viruses. COVID-19 … and fearful ignorance."

"Hate will get you sick, even if the virus doesn't," Mai wrote. 

In an interview with CBS News, Mai said seeing headlines and social media posts about anti-Asian hate, and experiencing it herself, inspired her to write the essay. "The Real" co-host said she started getting a barrage of anti-Asian comments on her Instagram posts, including photos of herself with her boyfriend. 

"When I saw the comments about myself, I was embarrassed," Mai said. "I thought, 'My God, how terrible is it that people can be so ignorant and then make... my partner feel pulled into this because of me.' I felt at fault."

"I immediately take blame... And then, it wasn't until I saw other headlines with other people that I got angry," Mai said. "I got irate, actually."

Mai said the message she wants to send is for everyday people. "In your conversations, as we're 'FaceTime-ing,' as we're 'Zooming,' as we're posting on Instagram and we're talking to friends, as we're talking about how terrible this is, if anybody says any racist remarks, say something," she said.

"If you see something that's happening to any civilian out there, speak up, take action. Definitely don't just stand there. Be an up-stander, not a bystander," Mai said. 

When asked if she was involved with any social organizations, Mai simply said "I'm in the organization of being Asian."

"That, to me, is full-time right there. I got to do my part, I got to make sure I speak up when I see something wrong," she said. "And by the way, that's not just for Asians, I'm going to speak up when I see anything hideous in any of my circles."

'A battlefield behind your home': Deaths mount in New York to more than 1,900    

Cache   

New York rushed to bring in an army of medical volunteers on Wednesday as the statewide death toll from the coronavirus doubled in 72 hours to more than 1,900 and the wail of ambulances in the otherwise eerily quiet streets of the city became the heartbreaking soundtrack of the crisis.

As hot spots flared around the US in places like New Orleans and Southern California, the nation's biggest city was the hardest-hit of them all, with bodies loaded onto refrigerated morgue trucks by gurney and forklift outside overwhelmed hospitals, in full view of passing motorists.

"It's like a battlefield behind your home,” said 33-year-old Emma Sorza, who could hear the sirens from severely swamped Elmhurst Hospital in Queens.

And the worst is yet to come.

"How does it end? And people want answers,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “I want answers. The answer is nobody knows for sure."

President Donald Trump acknowledged that the federal stockpile is nearly depleted of personal protective equipment used by doctors and nurses and warned of trying times to come.

"Difficult days are ahead for our nation,” he said. We're going to have a couple of weeks, starting pretty much now, but especially a few days from now that are going to be horrific."

Scientists offered more evidence on Wednesday that the coronavirus can be spread by seemingly healthy people who show no clear symptoms, leading the US government to issue new guidance warning that anyone exposed to the disease can be considered a potential carrier.

Stocks tumbled on Wall Street and markets around the world, a day after the White House warned Americans to brace for 100,000 to 240,000 deaths projected in the US before the crisis is over.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost more than 970 points, or over 4 per cent.

A new report on Wednesday from the United Nations said the global economy could shrink by almost 1pc this year instead of growing at a projected 2.5pc.

Under growing pressure, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis belatedly joined his counterparts in more than 30 states in issuing a statewide stay-home order. The governors of Pennsylvania, Nevada and Mississippi took similar steps.

Trump said his administration has agreed to ship out 1,000 breathing machines vital for treating severe cases of Covid-19. He said the US government has kept close hold on its stockpile of nearly 10,000 ventilators so they can be deployed quickly to states in need.

Meanwhile, European nations facing extraordinary demand for intensive care beds are putting up makeshift hospitals, unsure whether they will find enough healthy medical staff to run them.

London is days away from unveiling a 4,000-bed temporary hospital built in a huge convention centre.

In a remarkable turnabout, rich economies where virus cases have exploded are welcoming help from less wealthy ones.

Russia sent medical equipment and masks to the United States. Cuba supplied doctors to France. Turkey dispatched protective gear and disinfectant to Italy and Spain.

Worldwide, more than 900,000 people have been infected and over 45,000 have died, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University, though the real figures are believed to be much higher because of testing shortages, differences in counting the dead and large numbers of mild cases that have gone unreported.

The US recorded about 210,000 infections and about 4,800 deaths, with New York City accounting for about 1 out of 4 dead.

More than 80,000 people have volunteered as medical reinforcements in New York, including recent retirees, health care professionals taking a break from their regular jobs and people between gigs.

The few who have hit the ground already found a hospital system being driven to the breaking point.

"Its hard when you lose patients. Its hard when you have to tell the family members: I'm sorry, but we did everything that we could," said nurse Katherine Ramos of Cape Coral, Florida, who has been working at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

“Its even harder when we really don't have the time to mourn, the time to talk about this."

To ease the crushing caseload, the city's paramedics have been told they shouldn't take fatal heart attack victims to hospitals to have them pronounced dead.

Patients have been transferred to the Albany area.

A Navy hospital ship has docked in New York, the mammoth Javits Convention Centre has been turned into a hospital, and the tennis centre that hosts the US Open is being converted to one, too.

On near lockdown, the normally bustling streets in the city of 8.6 million are empty, and sirens are no longer easily ignored as just urban background noise.

"After 9/11, I remember we actually wanted to hear the sound of ambulances on our quiet streets because that meant there were survivors, but we didn't hear those sounds, and it was heartbreaking.

"Today, I hear an ambulance on my strangely quiet street and my heart breaks, too," said 61-year-old Meg Gifford, a former Wall Streeter who lives on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Nearly 6,200 New York City police officers, or one-sixth of the department, were out sick on Wednesday, including about 4,800 who reported flu-like systems, though it was not clear how many had the virus.

Cuomo said projections suggest the crisis in New York will peak at the end of April, with a high death rate continuing through July.

"Let's cooperate to address that in New York because it's going to be in your town tomorrow,” he warned.

“If we learn how to do it right here or learn how to do it the best we can, because there is no right, it's only the best we can then we can work cooperatively all across this country."

In Southern California, officials reported that at least 51 residents and six staff members at a nursing home east of Los Angeles have been infected and two have died.

Mayor Eric Garcetti warned residents of the nation's second largest city to wear non-medical grade masks whenever they go outside.

The number of dead topped 270 in Louisiana, Grand Canyon National Park closed to visitors indefinitely, and Florida was locked in a standoff over whether two cruise ships with sick and dead passengers may dock in the state.

Even as the virus appears to have slowed its growth in overwhelmed Italy and in China, where it first emerged, hospitals on the Continent are buckling under the load.

“We don't have enough masks, enough protective equipment, and by the end of the week we might be in need of more medication too," said Paris emergency worker Christophe Prudhomme.

Spain reported a record 864 deaths in one day, for a total of more than 9,000, while France registered an unprecedented 509 and more than 4,000 in all.

In Italy, with over 13,000 dead, the most of any country, morgues overflowed with bodies, caskets piled up in churches and doctors were forced to decide which desperately ill patients would get breathing machines.

England's Wimbledon tennis tournament was canceled for the first time since World War II.

India's highest court ordered news media and social media sites to carry the governments official version of developments, echoing actions taken in other countries to curb independent reporting.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte threatened to order law enforcement to shoot troublemakers and stop massive food and cash aid if there are riots and people defy a lockdown imposed on millions.

Duterte, who has been condemned for a brutal anti-drug crackdown that left thousands of mostly poor suspects dead, also said he would ask police to punish people who attack health workers with toxic chemicals by dousing the offenders with the substance or forcing them to drink it.

The strain facing some of the world's best health care systems has been aggravated by hospital budget cuts over the past decade in Italy, Spain, France and Britain. They have called in medical students, retired doctors and even laid-off flight attendants with first aid training.

The staffing shortage has been worsened by the high numbers of infected personnel.

In Italy alone, nearly 10,000 medical workers have contracted the virus and more than 60 doctors have died.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. But for others, especially older adults and people with health problems, it can cause severe symptoms like pneumonia.

Polémica por cirujanos que operan a jugadores con lesiones que pueden esperar   

Cache   

Famosos cirujanos ortopedistas se encuentran envueltos en medio de la polémica tras seguir realizando operaciones a deportistas profesionales que no corren ningún peligro por las lesiones que sufren, como es el caso de los lanzadores de las Grandes Ligas.

Mientras que todos los profesionales de la medicina han respetado las normas establecidas por las autoridades de salud pública de establecer el distanciamiento social y mantenerse el máximo de tiempo recluido en los hogares, y sobre todo reservar el material sanitario para la lucha contra la pandemia del coronavirus, famosos cirujanos ortopédicos siguen realizando operaciones.

Hasta que el renombrado James Andrews tomó la decisión de suspender temporalmente las operaciones 'Tommy John' --la peor lesión que puede sufrir un lanzador dentro del deporte del béisbol-- en su centro médico que tiene establecido en Gulf Breeze (Florida).

'No estamos realizando ningún procedimiento no urgente, incluida la cirugía 'Tommy John', en cumplimiento de la orden ejecutiva del gobernador', dijo el portavoz del Instituto Andrews de Ortopedia y Medicina del Deporte al diario Boston Globe.

'Estamos cumpliendo con estas restricciones y todos estos casos están suspendidos', agregó.

Debido a la pandemia de coronavirus, el gobernador de Florida, Ron DeSantis, emitió una orden ejecutiva el 20 de marzo que prohíbe 'cualquier procedimiento o cirugía médicamente innecesaria, no urgente o que no sea de emergencia que, si se retrasa, no coloque la salud, seguridad o bienestar inmediato del paciente en riesgo o, si se retrasa, no contribuirá al empeoramiento de una afección médica grave o potencialmente mortal'.

La orden está destinada a conservar el máximo de material sanitario que pueda ser utilizado en el tratamiento de los pacientes que se han visto afectados por la pandemia del coronavirus

Mientras esto sucedía en Florida, dos lanzadores estelares eran operados de sendas cirugías 'Tommy John', de las que necesitarán entre 12 y 18 meses de recuperación.

El pasado jueves el estelar derecho de los Mets de Nueva York Noah Syndergaard superó con éxito la operación de 'Tommy John' que le realizó el doctor del equipo, David Altchek, en West Palm Beach (Florida).

Mientra, el pasado lunes quien pasaba por el quirófano para someterse al mismo tipo de cirugía era el abridor zurdo de los Medias Rojas de Boston, Chris Sale, que fue operado por el especialista Neal ElAttrache en el Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute, de Los Angeles.

El doctor ElAttrache también había confirmado, como segunda opinión, que Syndergaard tenía una grave desgarro del ligamento colateral cúbital (UCL) del codo derecho y recomendó su operación como esencial.

'Sé que voy a ser criticado por cuidar de este tipo de hombres, pero es esencial para sus medios de vida', declaró ElAttrache al periódico San Francisco Chronicle el pasado 24 de marzo.

'Si tienes en juego la carrera de alguien y pierde dos temporadas en lugar de una, diría que no es un procedimiento electivo no esencial o sin importancia... Tenemos que tener algunos criterios'.

ElAttrache dijo que era muy importante ofrecer al público la realidad de este tipo de operaciones y la gran importancia que tenían en el futuro de los deportistas profesionales, que necesitaban un periodo considerable de recuperación, además de luego tener que rehabilitarse de cara a volver a la máximo competición.

'No queremos que sea arbitrario', argumentó ElAttrache. 'Queremos que el público confíe en lo que estamos haciendo y el motivo por qué se toman las decisiones finales de operar a pesar de la situación por la que atraviesa todo el país debido al coronavirus'.

Además reiteró que todos los profesionales médicos tienen establecidos unos criterios de selección de pacientes que son los más estrictos y profesionales.

'Si no tuviéramos algunos criterios para seleccionar pacientes, fácilmente podríamos ser acusados de parcialidad por razones no médicas y perder la confianza del público', justificó ElAttrache.

La cirugía para Syndergaard se realizó en el Hospital de Cirugía Especial de West Palm Beach (Florida), mientras que el procedimiento quirúrgico de Sale se llevo a cabo en el Instituto Kerlan-Jobe de Los Ángeles.

Ambas están establecidas como instalaciones ortopédicas especializadas de carácter privado en lugar de hospitales públicos y se calcula que el costo promedio de cada operación de Tommy John supera los 30.000 dólares.

Los directivos de los Mets y los Medias Rojas han explicado que los procesos quirúrgicos de sus lanzadores se hicieron de la manera que no representaran una carga indebida para nadie que sufriera por el coronavirus.

Don't Keep Your Day Job with Cathy Heller (ep. 242)   

Cache   

Cathy Heller is igniting a movement of helping people everywhere find a deeper sense of purpose and encouraging us to make a soulful contribution to the world. In addition to being a wife + mother, Cathy is a business + life coach, musician, author and host of the wildly popular Don't Keep Your Day Job podcast.

When I first asked Cathy to meet with me, I expected to spend the majority of our time sharing her expertise on how to shift into more meaningful, fulfilling work. And then life happened... the world is now in a radically different place and yet I find this a divine appointment.

Cathy often says “purpose is the opposite of depression” and she is truly lifting up others to be the happiest version of themselves. Today, Cathy shares her story of courageously taking control of her destiny and how you can, too.

SHOW NOTES:

  • Growing up, Cathy was surrounded by trauma, violence and instability - leading her to question her worth.
  • As an aspiring singer-songwriter, Cathy moved to Los Angeles + landed a record deal before being dropped a few months later. She viewed this as validation to just "grow up, get a job + be unhappy."
  • Is there any other way I can do music? Unhappy selling commercial real-estate, Cathy learned that songwriters license music for film, TV + advertisements.
  • For a decade, Cathy wrote songs for popular shows including The OfficeSNL and Parks and Rec, plus brands including Coca-Cola, American Airlines. McDonald's and Old Navy.
  • Using her personal expertise + experience, Cathy began offering online classes for aspiring songwriters that evolved into a significant revenue stream.
  • Encouraged by the success of her online courses, Cathy launched the Don't Keep Your Day Job podcast that inspires listeners to find more purpose in their life and get paid to do what they love full-time by interviewing creative entrepreneurs on their success.
  • "We are sitting on a gold. What we are missing is seeing the possibility. We're missing momentum which only comes from taking action."
  • "There are so many special, holy people in the world. If you dig long enough you'll weed your way through the people with an agenda and you'll find the real ones."
  • You're a masterpiece. You are a piece of the master. We need you. God doesn't make extras. Those powerful words from Rabbi David Aaron ignited Cathy's calling.
  • "The opposite of depression is not happiness. The opposite of depression is purpose + belonging."
  • "Everybody will say all the reasons why something won't work and the entrepreneur finds the one reason it will. That's true also about people of faith."
  • Cathy sees hope that the coronavirus pandemic will be a gift and an opportunity to emerge more fulfilled + happier.
  • Pivot into seeing the possibilities instead of succumbing to fear. 
  • Life is 10% what happens and 90% how you deal with it. Cathy's grandmother overcame the Holocaust + the Depression and chose to look for the possibilities.
  • In today's turbulent + uncertain world, Cathy encourages aspiring entrepreneurs to start with what's possible + take action.
  • Stop to feel it, give yourself compassion, take action. Cathy stresses the importance of learning to self-regulate, being mindful of our feelings + mental wellbeing as the first step in seeing possibilities.
  • Cathy has hope that the current state of the world is an opportunity to unify + support others.

CATHY HELLER'S LIVE INSPIRED 7

1. What is the best book you’ve ever read? Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn and The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.

2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Trust. I trust the world, my abilities + my business but I don't think I trust that I'm seen + loved by my husband because of what I've been through.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? My computer because I love being able to encourage others.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? My grandfather Ben, my mom's dad. He died right before I was born and I've always felt he's watching over me.

5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? My grandma would say, "Before you do something, think what someone else woke up with today."

6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? You are going to be okay. You have a huge role to play in the world and please know you're more than enough exactly how you are.

7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? Cathy made me believe that I had so much value and because of that I gave to others and lifted them.

To help combat fear, isolation and other uncertainty around coronavirus, I created a 21-day challenge to inspire our community to focus on what they can control and to remain ferociously optimistic that their best remains ahead. Sign up for the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge here.

Fox Racing and Smith Optics are also donating goggles.

SAN DIEGO (BRAIN) — Performance eye protection has been a focus of 100% with its lines of sunglasses and goggles.

Until two weeks ago.

Now the focus is clearly necessary eye protection.

100% announced Tuesday it donated a shipment of eyewear to a Los Angeles organization serving firefighters and emergency medical personnel for distribution during the COVID-19 pandemic. 100% is preparing more eyewear for front-line personnel in New York City, Denver, San Diego, Oceanside, California, Carlsbad, California, Phoenix and Louisville.

This comes at a time when Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, is emphasizing that Americans should avoid touching their eyes, which masks don't protect from exposure.

"This is where we can make a difference," said Diane Thibert, spokesperson for 100%. "We've always known the importance of eye protection. It's why we kicked this program into gear almost two weeks ago."

More than 1,000 pairs of eyewear, all with clear lens installed but also including the sun lens, have been donated with 500 more pairs being repurposed, said 100% CEO Ludo Boinnard. Also, a portion of all online sales will be donated to the CDC Foundation and those battling COVID-19.

"We're taking a larger inventory of wrap Active lifestyle sunglasses, having clear lenses manufactured for it quickly, so they can be PPE," Boinnard said.

Boinnard said his company has started allocating about 1,000 goggles to New York hospitals and others through the grassroots snow industry initiative Goggles for Docs. Fox Racing eyewear and Smith Optics also are part of the program.

"Glad to see the industry getting on with it," he said.

With the country struggling to get necessary personal protective equipment to first-responders and medical staff, Boinnard feels the need to help any way he can, noting he saw some hospitals so desperate for PPE, they were using promotional rain ponchos.

"We have raincoats in stock, so if this is also needed, we will provide those as well," he said.

100% is donating protective eyewear to first-responders and medical personnel.
