5 dead, over 100 evacuated from Florida
nursing home due to intense heat,
loss of power after Irma

Fox News, by Travis Fedschun

(Video) - More than 100 people were evacuated from a Florida nursing home Wednesday after five people were reported dead at the Hollywood facility, whose residents were suffering from intense heat caused by a lack of electricity after deadly Hurricane Irma swept through. Irma may have moved on from Florida, but lingering dangers caused by the storm, including carbon monoxide poisoning and heat-related incidents caused by a lack of air conditioning, remain in the Sunshine State, as millions wait for power to be restored. Hollywood Fire Rescue and police said at a news conference a total of 115 people were

Comments:
I have been wondering if anyone died from Hurricane Irma after the relentless hype on both TV and talk radio. I had to tune out talk radio listening to this repetition of stating the obvious over and over. And when the conversation got to the news person standing out in the blasting winds in various garb, my blood pressure could take it no more. Some how, in the midst of all this hysteria, they missed the countless dead from the floods (mudslides) in Italy, and other parts of the "real" world (Far East) occurring at the same time. (And, it's still on-going.)

FTA: The nursing home did have a generator, but it is unclear if the generator was functional

Unclear? Seems pretty clear to me. What? they didn´t want to turn it on because they were saving it for a rainy day? Or maybe they forgot they even had it?

Was the nursing home not required to have emergency generators?

There you go. Backup power check must be part of periodic inspection of these facilities. It´s not just about air conditioning, but also other life support equipment for patients. Not an option.

In my experience, the best nursing homes are in small towns.

People die in nursing homes all the time... Did these 5 pass because of the heat or as my late husband told me when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, When your times up it´s up. Period.
Either way I am sorry to hear that..
I think this place should be put on notice if they had a generator and didn´t get it going..

My wheelchair bound sister is in a Houston nursing/assisted living facility. No electricity, flooded first floor. Her room is o the second floor. She made it, due in large part thanks to an extremely conscientious, lower-level, staff member who saw her through the storm. Sister´s family have made their appreciation known through contributing toward a replacement vehicle for the staff member whose car was on site and was destroyed.

Let´s face it, before air conditioning and swamp draining, Florida was not a highly desirable place to live year-round. The most vulnerable people need a lot of modern day help to survive. When systems break down, they are the first to die.

There is a lot more to this story and it´s not good. A lot of fraud and now they are trying to blame the power company because they weren´t on the emergency list.

Another facility was evacuated in Apopka this evening for not having AC.

The elderly and disabled are incapable of caring for themselves. This is criminal.

NBC insiders confused by
Megyn Kelly’s new show
New York Post [Page Six], by Oli Coleman    Original Article

NBC insiders are going to need some serious convincing about Megyn Kelly’s new show. If TV critics are confused by what one called her “Bride of Frankenstein” morning show, Page Six hears that veteran network producers are baffled by the decision to make her “Megyn Kelly Today” a “politics-free zone.” In the run up to Monday’s premiere in the 9 a.m. “Today” slot, Kelly — who built her reputation on hard-hitting Washington coverage, not to mention her public spat with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — said that she’s “not a political animal and I never have been.” During the launch episode she announced that

Passed over for higher command, U.S. Navy Adm. Scott Swift on Monday announced his unexpected retirement as commander of the Pacific Fleet. "I have been informed by the Chief of Naval Operations that I will not be his nominee to replace Adm. (Harry) Harris as the Commander, U.S. Pacific Command,” Swift wrote in a prepared statement (Snip) On Jan. 31, the cruiser Antietam ran aground on a Japanese shoal. Less than five months later, the cruiser Lake Champlain bashed a South Korean fishing boat.

A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing.

Chelsea Manning barred from entering
Canada for offences ´similar to treason´
Telegraph [UK], by Staff    Original Article

Chelsea Manning, a former American soldier jailed for leaking troves of classified information, said on Monday that she was banned from entering Canada due to criminal convictions in the United States. Manning had tried to cross at the official border office at Lacolle, Quebec, on Friday. On Monday, she posted a letter from Canadian immigration officials to her Twitter account that said she was not admitted because she was convicted of offences deemed equivalent to treason in Canada. "So, I guess Canada has permanently banned me? Denied entry b/c of convictions similar to "treason" offence," she wrote.

We may not know her name, but this woman made history on Monday. The woman, who has asked to keep her identity private, became the first female to successfully complete the Marines´ infantry officer course in Quantico, Virginia. “I am proud of this officer and those in her class? who have earned the infantry officer MOS,” Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller said in a press release. (Tweet) The lieutenant was one of 88 Marines to complete the grueling 13-week course which "trains and educates newly selected infantry and ground intelligence officers in leadership, infantry skills, and character required to serve

Evil Klingons Modeled After President

Liberals are celebrating the links they see between the antagonists of the new Star Trek and what they believe to be the ideologies of President Trump and his supporters. The “connections” aren’t difficult to find, as co-executive producer Aaron Harberts told Rolling Stone that the “Trump phenomenon” was “front and center in our minds” in creating the new series. In Sunday’s two premiere episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, a Klingon, T’Kuvma, tries to unify the Klingons against Starfleet’s mission for multiculturalism. To sum it up, he believes in isolationism and racial purity…and taking over the world.

As the world carries on with its normal routine despite his prediction that the world would end this past Saturday, Christian numerologist David Meade clarified that the end of the world is still imminent. Specifically, Meade says the world´s end will begin October 15, 2017. That´s when, Meade says, "Jupiter crosses the womb region of Virgo." "That´s when the action starts," he continued. "Hold on and watch -- wait until the middle of October and I don´t believe you´ll be disappointed." Clarifying his earlier prediction, Meade says the "mainstream" got it wrong in thinking something "visible" would happen on September 23.

The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably. Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein. Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took a knee on the floor of the House tonight during a special order by the Congressional Black Caucus focused on rooting out racism and defending the First Amendment. "Someone had the lack of judgment to provoke the situation and call their mothers a name," Jackson Lee said of President Trump using "son of a bi*ch" last week to refer to NFL players who knelt during the National Anthem in protest of racial injustice. "I refuse to accept that as a standard of leadership for the highest office in the world -- and even if

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

At a Friday rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump criticized football players who protest during the national anthem: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ (Snip)Here are five reasons the NFL anthem protests are not going as well as the media would like to think. 1. Vague And Unclear Protest Goals One of the keys to a good protest is to have a clear goal. If the discussions on Sunday were any indication, nobody is entirely clear
