Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Rand Paul to introduce bill to vote on spending bills individually In the wake of the three-day government shutdown that ended Monday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced that he is introducing a bill requiring Congress to vote on spending bills individually, instead of rushing the funding of governmental entities through all in one bill. “I’m introducing a bill to mandate that spending go through a normal appropriations process so we vote on spending individually,” Paul tweeted Tuesday. “I call my bill the Government Shutdown Prevention Act and I’m introducing it this week in the Senate because Americans deserve real spending reform.”
Republicans who won’t be coming back to Congress after 2018 midterm elections Rep.
Darrell Issa, R-Calif., will retire at the end of his term. “Representing you has been the privilege of a lifetime,” Issa, 64, said in a statement. But Issa could come back to Congress, after all. He is reportedly considering running for Rep. Duncan Hunter’s seat, should he end up resigning his own seat. Hunter, however, has said that he is “100% running for reelection.”
Home Depot awards $1,000 bonuses to hourly workers due to Trump tax cuts Home Depot is giving hourly workers in the U.S. a one-time cash bonus of as much as $1,000, crediting the Trump tax cuts. All U.S. hourly workers will get at least a $200 bonus in the current quarter, while employees of 20 years or longer will be awarded $1,000, the company told CNBC. “We are pleased to be able to provide this additional reward to our associates for continuing to deliver outstanding customer service,” Home Depot President and CEO Craig Menear said in a statement. “This incremental investment in our associates was made possible by the new tax reform bill.”
Iran protests fueled by economic hardship The biggest anti-government protests in Iran since
2009 have turned the spotlight on President Hassan Rouhani’s economic record. Iran’s economy has been picking up pace in recent years, helped by a nuclear deal that eased international sanctions. Growth has returned and inflation has fallen since Rouhani took office in 2013. The International Monetary Fund is projecting the economy to expand by 4.2% in the year to March 2018 — it was contracting five years ago. And annual inflation has fallen to 10% from 34%.
DOJ Threatens 23 Immigrant Sanctuary Jurisdictions With Subpoenas Twenty-three cities and states are facing subpoenas if they do not prove they are complying with federal immigration laws regarding sanctuary cities in a “timely manner,” the Justice Department announced Wednesday. Letters were sent to each of the jurisdictions, which include California, New York City and Chicago, on Wednesday, demanding they provide documentation that proves they are not violating federal law. That law _ referred to as Section 1373 _ prohibits state and local governments from standing in the way of their employees communicating with Immigration and Naturalization Service officials on the citizenship or immigration status of any individual.
Hour 2 – Question Vaccines… Get Fired
Former Medical Director of Cleveland Clinic Speaks Out After Being Fired for Questioning
Flu Vaccine Last January, the Medical Director and Chief Operating Officer of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, medical doctor Daniel Neides, was fired due to an article he wrote questioning vaccine safety. Dr. Neides became sick after receiving a flu shot, which caused him to examine more closely the ingredients included in the influenza vaccine.
Part Of The Opioid Epidemic Puzzle – People Like Them
Prescribing of opioids adds to patient satisfaction with care Brian D. Sites, M.D., from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and colleagues used data from the 2008 to 2014 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey to assess whether prescription opioid use is associated with satisfaction with care among 19,566 U.S. adults who had musculoskeletal conditions. The researchers found that 13.1 percent of patients with musculoskeletal conditions were opioid users, defined as receiving at least one prescription in two six-month time periods. Opioid users were more likely to report high satisfaction with care (odds ratio, 1.32), compared to nonusers when adjusting for sociodemographic characteristics and health status. A stronger association was witnessed with increasing level of opioid use (odds ratios with moderate opioid use and heavy opioid use, 1.55 and 1.43, respectively; P < 0.001 for trend).
Question of The Day!
How much GTF chromium should be taken for a diabetic patient?
Do you have a list of doctors or practitioners who will suggest the supplements like selenium, silica etc for autism? My autistic son has a naturopathic doctor, but she didn’t suggest these. The naturopath was also fine giving Tylenol to my son in case of a high fever.
Groundbreaking Science or Moment of DUH?
Everyday exercise has surprisingly positive health benefits The benefits of low-intensity
physical activity, such as standing, walking or doing household chores, can be more health beneficial than once thought. According to a study from Karolinska Institutet published in the journal Clinical Epidemiology, replacing half an hour’s sedentariness a day with everyday activity reduces the risk of fatal cardiovascular disease by 24 per cent.
Who Is Paying For This Research?
Climate Change Science Just Gets Sillier and Sillier
Is the humble sandwich a climate change culprit? Scientists at the University of Manchester have found a surprising global warming culprit – sandwiches. In the first study of its kind, the researchers carried out an in-depth audit of various sandwiches throughout their life cycles and found the triangular meals could be responsible for the equivalent annual carbon emissions of 8.6 million cars in Britain alone. What the researchers found was that not all sandwiches are created equal and that some varieties have larger carbon footprints than others. The highest footprint was found in premade, prepackaged, all-day-breakfast sandwiches. These contain eggs, bacon, and sausage and are kept packaged and refrigerated until sold and eaten – all of which is estimated to add up to 1,441 g (3.18 lb) of carbon dioxide equivalent, or roughly the same as driving a car for 12 miles (19 km).
