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

Fox News, by Travis Fedschun

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/13/2017 11:13:27 AM

(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.

As sexual misconduct allegations continue to rock liberal Hollywood, the mainstream media establishment, and politicians of both political parties, at least the Democrats can count on CNN to eschew reporting about dozens of sexual allegations on members of their party. (Snip) When CNN is not busy giving President Donald Trump 93 percent negative coverage, covering for Islamic terrorists, botching gun reports, or being sued by over 200 African-Americans for racial discrimination, they are busy covering for Democrats across the United States by not reporting on scandals.

A retired lieutenant general said Thursday that President Trump’s comments to troops deployed overseas, which included remarks about the economy and military’s recent success, were “somewhat insulting.” “First of all, I’m thankful for the fact that he did address the soldiers. But the message I heard and some of the things he said would not have rung very well with me had I been a deployed soldier,” CNN military analyst and retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said. Trump spoke from his Mar-a-Lago estate to troops deployed overseas via video teleconference. During the call, the president praised the military’s recent performance,

ESPN lost 2 million subscribers last fiscal year, underscoring the challenge owner Walt Disney Co. faces attracting young people who don’t pay for cable. The network, one of the most watched on the cable dial, had 88 million U.S. subscribers at the end of September, including people paying for online versions, Disney said in its annual report Wednesday. That’s down from a peak of 100 million in 2010 and marks the lowest total since 2003. To ensure the long-term future of one of its most profitable businesses, Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger is negotiating to include ESPN in new digital forms

Washington - Lawyers for Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, notified the president’s legal team in recent days that they could no longer discuss the special counsel’s investigation, according to four people involved in the case, an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal. Mr. Flynn’s lawyers had been sharing information with Mr. Trump’s lawyers about the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining whether anyone around Mr. Trump was involved in Russian efforts to undermine Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe won’t face prosecution and is free to remain in the southern African nation following his resignation on Tuesday after 37 years in power. “There aren’t any plans for former President Robert Mugabe; he’s free to stay in Zimbabwe and he won’t face prosecution,” Simon Khaya Moyo, a spokesman for the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front, said Thursday by phone. “We don’t have anything against him or his family. He’s the hero of our liberation.” Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, is due to be sworn in on Friday to replace Mugabe, who’s ruled since independence in 1980.

Palm Beach, FL - President Donald Trump has a Thanksgiving Day message for the nation: Look at all I’ve done. Trump is telling followers in an early morning holiday tweet that, “your Country is starting to do really well.” He says: Jobs are “coming back, highest Stock Market EVER, Military getting really strong, we will build the WALL, V.A. taking care of our Vets, great Supreme Court Justice, RECORD CUT IN REGS, lowest unemployment in 17 years….!” Trump is celebrating the holiday from his private club Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.

Cuba´s foreign minister and his North Korean counterpart have rejected the United States´ “unilateral and arbitrary” demands while expressing concern about escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, the ministry said. North Korea is searching for support amid unprecedented pressure from the United States and the international community to cease its nuclear weapons and missile programmes, which it carries out in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions. The country, which has made no secret of its plans to develop a missile capable of hitting the US mainland, has maintained warm political relations with Cuba since

Charlie Rose, formerly of PBS and CBS. Glenn Thrush of The New York Times. The collapse of the liberal establishment Masters of the Universe continues. Yet for some reason, the Democratic and liberal establishment think now is the time to condemn … Bill Clinton. (Snip) The only thing that has changed for liberals is being caught as enablers and hypocrites. None of these people now complaining about Mr. Clinton have had any sort of epiphany. They just realize their defense of sexual assault in the 1990s makes it impossible for them to continue the fraud of casting conservatives as the enemies of women.

Drinking coffee is more likely to
benefit than harm you, finds new study

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 11/23/2017 2:33:21     Post Reply
Coffee is "more likely to benefit health than harm", a new review has found. People appear to reduce their risk of a range of health problems when they drink three to four cups a day, experts found. They concluded that drinking coffee seems safe "within usual patterns of consumption", except in pregnancy and among women who are at risk of a fracture. (Snip) Their study, published in The British Medical Journal, found that drinking three or four cups a day compared to drinking none has been linked to a lower likelihood of developing or dying from cardiovascular problems, such as heart attacks and stroke.

(Video) - An employee at an Illinois CVS tricked a customer into handing over a winning $1 million scratch off lottery card, a new lawsuit charges. Carlos Figueroa sued last week to block the Illinois Lottery Board from awarding the winnings to CVS employee Russell Kelly before the full case is heard early next year. Figueroa maintains that on October 30, he bought a “Merry Millionaire” instant scratch off at a CVS in Waukegan, but the ticket was mangled due to a vending machine error, the Chicago Tribune reported. That's when Kelly allegedly “coerced” Figueroa into handing him the ticket to see if it was a winner.

A former ethics director has filed a complaint against Kellyanne Conway for comments she made about the Alabama Senate race. “I have filed a complaint with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which investigates Hatch Act violations,” Walter Shaubtweeted. Mr. Shaub is the former director of the Office of Government Ethics. His complaint centers around Mrs. Conway’s comments earlier this week blasting Democratic candidate Doug Jones. Mrs. Conway did not advocate on behalf of Republican candidate Roy Moore, but said that Mr. Jones’ was a “doctrinaire liberal.” “Doug Jones in Alabama, folks, don’t be fooled.

Draft Bernie is no more. The liberal activists who’d hoped to recruit Sen. Bernard Sanders to lead a new third party appear to have given up on the senator, dropping his name from their movement as they search for a new champion to pave an independent path in the next presidential election. Comprised of former Sanders staffers and volunteers, the group says the invite to Mr. Sanders still stands, but it’s changing its name from “Draft Bernie for a People’s Party” to “Movement for a People’s Party.” “We are motivated to continue whether Bernie is prepared to join us yet or not by the fact that a new party is inevitable in the United States,”

A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share."

A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling on the underside. (Snip) The charges against Mr. Moore are not only serious; they are completely credible.

The NFL is considering an idea for next year to keep players inside their locker rooms during the playing of the National Anthem. "I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen," said one person familiar with the owners´ deliberations on anthem-related issues.Years ago, the players would come out on the field to warm up and then return to the locker room during the National Anthem. The league is thinking of going back to that policy. Washington Post: That person said it was "too early to tell" for certain

The American political community has not taken adequate notice of Hillary Clinton’s book What Happened (the title is not posed as a question). It was generally panned when it came out a couple of months ago for blaming everyone but herself for her defeat. I have never been a Clinton-basher, and I was astonished by the venom, untruthfulness, and zealotry of her account. Mrs. Clinton writes persuasively of seeking “grace” after her defeat, and concluded most of her speeches throughout the 2016 campaign calling for “love and kindness,” yet she is unrelievedly ungracious. She describes her opponent as a clear

In a statement released to The Dallas Morning News, the longtime Republican said the image -- which first surfaced on social media earlier this week -- was taken while separated from his former wife in recent years. "While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women," Barton, who is twice-divorced, said in the statement. "Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better

WASHINGTON – Justice Anthony M.

A senior director with the American Civil Liberties Union said Thursday that Kennedy has been distracted by the “deep faith” of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who refused to bake a wedding cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins. Kennedy, an 81-year-old Republican, has been instrumental in scoring several key judicial victories for gay rights. “I think
