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.

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.

California Bill Seeks Ban on
Fossil-Fueled Vehicles by 2040
Bloomberg News, by Ryan Beene    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/3/2018 8:28:53     Post Reply
California would ban the sale of new cars and trucks powered by fossil fuels in 2040 under legislation introduced Wednesday in the state legislature. "We’re at an inflection point: we’ve got to address the harmful emissions that cause climate change," Democratic Assemblymember Phil Ting, the bill’s author, said in a statement. If the measure becomes law, by January 1, 2040, all new passenger vehicles sold in California would have to be so-called zero emission vehicles such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell cars. More cars are sold each year in California than in any other state -- and more than in some countries.

Motel 6 was sued on Wednesday by Washington state’s attorney general, who accused the discount hotel chain of illegally providing guest lists to U.S. immigration authorities, knowing of their interest in people with “Latino-sounding” names. Attorney General Bob Ferguson said six Motel 6 locations in Washington provided names, birth dates, license plates and other personal information belonging to at least 9,151 guests to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from June 2015 to May 2017. Ferguson said Motel 6 knew ICE used guest lists to target people based on their national origin, and that the disclosures led to

The White House kicked off a new round of budget negotiations with Congress on Wednesday, as President Trump told Democrats to abandon a “radical political agenda” on immigration and agree to a no-strings spending bill to keep the government open beyond a mid-January deadline. Democrats are hoping to include a long list of their priorities in the bill, which is due by Jan. 19: a boost in domestic spending, a pension bailout for some labor-union members, more money for the anti-opioid fight and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and a permanent legal solution for illegal immigrant “Dreamers.”

This Is How to Sneak Oil Into North Korea
Bloomberg Technology, by Serene Cheong, Dan Murtaugh    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/3/2018 6:08:14     Post Reply
Donald Trump’s desire to squeeze Kim Jong Un’s regime risks being undermined by the furtive maneuvers of oil tankers at sea. The enforcement of international measures limiting sales to North Korea -- part of an effort to force Kim to abandon nuclear weapons -- is becoming near impossible because suppliers of illicit fuel are using an old oil-trading practice that helps obscure its origin and destination. Ship-to-ship transfers, when cargoes are pumped from one tanker to another in the ocean, are legal and typically used to break up large oil shipments into parcels on smaller vessels. But they can also be used as a trick that

President Trump lashed out Wednesday against Steve Bannon, saying that his former top campaign and White House adviser had “lost his mind.” “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.” Mr. Bannon harshly criticized the early days of the Trump White House in an upcoming book. Excerpts were released Wednesday. The president said Mr. Bannon does not represent the Trump base but “is only in it for himself” and called him a secret ally of the news media that opposes the administration. Mr. Bannon gave author Michael Wolff a biting expose that

President Donald Trump denounced his former top strategist, Steve Bannon, on Wednesday, saying that he ‘lost his mind’ after leaving the White House last summer. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind,” Trump said of Bannon in a statement the White House issued. “Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look.” The statement represented an emphatic break from the person considered the architect of Trump’s presidential campaign. Bannon continued to enjoy access to the president after he left the White House, but that has ended, one person familiar with the

Actress Meryl Streep says curiosity over her silence regarding disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein should be directed at other women: First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump. The New York Times interviewed actor Tom Hanks and Ms. Streep for their upcoming movie “The Post,” but the conversation soon turned to Hollywood’s sexual misconduct scandals and the #MeToo movement. The Academy Award winning actress said that scrutiny over her muted early response is misguided. “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me,” Ms. Streep told the newspaper for an interview published Wednesday.

A bill that seeks to amend the laws concerning entry to Israel so that the Minister of the Interior will be able to strip the Israeli residency of east Jerusalem residents who are involved in terrorist activities or operate against the state of Israel was approved during preliminary discussions on Wednesday morning. The bill is also known as the Abu Tir law after the Palestinian Hamas activist from east Jerusalem Muhammad Abu Tir who enjoys full residency rights in the State of Israel while serving in the Hamas movement, a terrorist movement calling for the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state.

London - Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards have deployed forces to three provinces to put down an eruption of anti-government unrest, their commander said on Wednesday, after six days of protests that have left 21 people dead. (Snip) But, in a sign of official concern about the resilience of the protests, the Revolutionary Guards commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said he had dispatched forces to Isfahan, Lorestan and Hamadan provinces to tackle “the new sedition”.

Donald Trump never intended to win the election and was left ´horrified´ after his shock victory, a sensational new book has claimed. On the morning of their historic win, everyone on Team Trump was busily lining up opportunities for themselves after what they believed would be an inevitable loss. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable news star, Steve Bannon would become leader of the Tea Party movement, while Ivanka and Jared Kushner would be celebrities. Melania, who had been assured she would not become First Lady, would get to go back to lunching while Trump had started floating the idea of his own

Phase two of the remaking of Trump. An internal conflict over the trajectory of the GOP’s evolution in the Trump era quietly reached a turning point in late 2017 that has become clear only in hindsight. The “originals”–who joined Trump’s campaign when no other Republican political professionals would–have been purged or sidelined. The president has opted to outsource his legislative priorities to conventional Republicans in Congress, and he has delegated the conduct of foreign affairs to responsible administration officials. The contemptible alt-right and their “America First” allies are beside themselves even as erstwhile Trump skeptics in the GOP are suddenly
