Health workers honored for heroically saving lives in Vegas mass shooting

LAS VEGAS -- As the influx of victims from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history flooded nearby emergency rooms, hospital workers heroically answered the call to serve, tirelessly providing around-the-clock treatment and care. Among the heroes was Jacqueline Rodriguez, a nursing aide at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, who immediately raced back to the hospital despite just finishing a 12-hour shift. Running from patient to patient, rushing hospital equipment to doctors and nurses who needed to administer them to patients, lifting patients onto gurneys and moving them to treatment areas were some of the work, Rodriguez did as she and her colleagues dealt with t...Keep on reading: Health workers honored for heroically saving lives in Vegas mass shooting.....»»

Cruz, Sanders face off on Obamacare – CNN News

Sen. Ted Cruz urged fellow Republicans Tuesday to quickly &'8220;honor the promises&'8221; the party made over the years to repeal Obamacare. &'8220;2010, 2014, 2016, I believe were a mandate from the voters. We're tired of the premiums going up. We're tired of deductibles going up,&'8221; Cruz said at a CNN town hall debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders over the future of Obamacare. &'8220;Should Congress move swiftly to repeal Obamacare? Absolutely.&'8221; Cruz and Sanders &'8212; two senators with diametrically opposed views of government's role in health care &'8212; faced off at the debate moderated by CNN's Jake Tapper and Dana Bash and featuring questions from an audience consisting of both defenders and critics of the Affordable Care Act. Cruz's call on his party to &'8220;repeal every word of Obamacare&'8221; came as the GOP is grappling with how quickly to repeal the law. The party hasn't yet reached a consensus on an alternative to the law. President Donald Trump said Sunday that a replacement plan may not be rolled out until next year. The GOP's incredible, shrinking Obamacare repeal The town hall debate underscored the many challenges surrounding efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act &'8212; a sweeping health care law that covers some 20 million Americans. The evening began with each lawmaker laying out starkly different views of the controversial law. &'8220;If you are one of 20 million Americans who finally has received health insurance, forget about it &'8212; you're gone,&'8221; Sanders warned about repealing Obamacare. &'8220;That means when you get sick, you ain't gonna be able to go to the doctor. And when you end up in the hospital, you'll be paying those bills for the rest of your life, or maybe you'll go bankrupt.&'8221; Cruz, a Texas Republican who made his name in national politics by fiercely opposing the health care law, said former President Barack Obama made a series of promises that were broken. &'8220;If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,&'8221; Cruz said. &'8220;Millions discovered that was not true.&'8221; Several policy questions are at the center of the ongoing battle about reforming Obamacare, including the popular provision to protect people with pre-existing conditions and the controversial mandate that nearly all Americans get coverage. Republican lawmakers are also wrestling with how to live up to their promises to make Obamacare more affordable and to reform Medicaid. The CNN debate highlighted how Republicans and Democrats fundamentally disagree on many of these issues. One woman in the audience, Neosho Ponder, spoke about her fight against breast cancer and said she was undergoing radiation treatment. Ponder expressed fear that without Obamacare, she wouldn't be able to afford health insurance. Cruz insisted that Republican lawmakers support prohibiting insurance companies from canceling coverage for someone just because they are sick. All GOP proposals that have been introduced to replace Obamacare with, Cruz said, &'8220;prohibit companies from jacking up the insurance rates because they got sick or injured.&'8221; Ted, I cannot believe what you just said. It's a direct contradiction of everything you ran for President on,&'8221; he said. &'8220;What Ted has said is he wants to get rid of all federal mandates. Did you say that a hundred times?&'8221; &'8220;I didn't say it once,&'8221; Cruz said. &'8220;Virtually all of the Republican legislation that has been filed — that the Democrats have opposed — maintains a continuity of coverage.&'8221; The issue of pre-existing conditions came up again when Maria Shahid Rowe, a woman who is five-months pregnant, said she was worried she wouldn't be able to get health coverage without Obamacare. Cruz responded that Democrats are mandating that people get &'8220;every coverage on earth &'8212; and it sounds really good.&'8221; However, &'8220;you should get the policies that meet your needs,&'8221; he said. Sanders shot back that before Obamacare, Shahid Rowe's pregnancy would have been treated as a pre-existing condition. &'8220;What Ted is really telling you is they will not guarantee coverage for you.&'8221; Another woman in the audience, Melissa Borkowski, told Sanders she simply can't afford the health services she needs. Burkowski recently had an abnormal Pap smear, but said she couldn't get additional tests because she hasn't met her out-of-pocket deductible. Her fear: that she may now have undiagnosed cancer. Sanders, who repeatedly stressed that Obamacare was far from perfect, said it is &'8220;totally absurd&'8221; that Borkowski has such an &'8220;outrageous deductible.&'8221; &'8220;If you were in Canada, you know what? You would get the health care that you need,&'8221; he said. &'8220;The idea that we have policies like that, like the one you describe, is clearly an outrage.&'8221; Cruz lamented that coverage choices have gone down &'8220;dramatically&'8221; since Obamacare became law. The senator, whose Canadian birthplace became a political controversy during his 2016 presidential run, also added: &'8220;Bernie mentions Canada quite a bit. I know quite a bit about Canadian health care. I was born there. You know Bernie, that may be the best argument against your position. Look what it produced.&'8221; Sanders joked as he gestured at Cruz: &'8220;Look what the result is.&'8221; Another key pillar of Obamacare that came up was the so-called &'8220;employer mandate&'8221; &'8212; the law's requirement that small businesses employing 50 or more workers to provide healthcare for its employees. LaRonda Hunter, who owns five hair salons in Texas, said she can't afford to provide coverage to her employees because of low profit margins and that the Obamacare rule is preventing her from growing her business.

114 Years of healthcare innovation

St. Luke's Medical Center marks its 114th anniversary by reflecting on the dramatic changes that have transpired since October 1903 when retired Reverend Charles Henry Brent of the Episcopal Missions set up the Dispensary of St. Luke the Beloved Physician. A free clinic which served the underprivileged individuals of Calle Magdalena (now Masangkay Street) in Tondo, Manila has since moved to E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue in Quezon City and expanded its reach as it established a second hospital in Bonifacio Global City. As it plans to redevelop its existing facility in Quezon City, St. Luke's now even prepares plans for a third one located in Azuela Cove, Lanang, Davao City.

Trump's comments about anthem, Curry inflame sports stars

CATHERINE LUCEY, Associated Press br /> TIM REYNOLDS, Associated Press br /> SOMERSET, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump sharply criticized protests by NFL players for a second straight day and rescinded NBA star Stephen Curry's White House invitation on Saturday in a series of tweets that outraged football and basketball stars and even prompted LeBron James to call the president a 'bum.' Trump started by announcing that Curry, the immensely popular two-time MVP for the Golden State Warriors, would not be welcome at the White House for the commemorative visit traditionally made by championship teams. Later, Trump reiterated what he said at a rally in Alabama the previous night that NFL players who kneel for the national anthem should be fired, prompting immediate condemnation from a handful of team executives, the league commissioner and its players' union. The Warriors said it was made clear to them that they were not welcome at the White House. They said that when they go to Washington this season they will instead 'celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization.' Curry had said he did not want to go to the White House anyway, but the Warriors had not made a collective decision before Saturday. 'U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!' James tweeted in a clear message to the president — a post that Twitter officials said was quickly shared many more times than any other he's sent. 'So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!' James also released a video Saturday, saying Trump has tried to divide the country. 'He's now using sports as the platform to try to divide us,' James said. 'We all know how much sports brings us together. ... It's not something I can be quiet about.' Warriors general manager Bob Myers said he was surprised by the invitation being pulled. 'The White House visit should be something that is celebrated,' Myers said. 'So we want to go to Washington, D.C., and do something to commemorate kind of who we are as an organization, what we feel, what we represent and at the same time spend our energy on that. Instead of looking backward, we want to look forward.' Added Warriors coach Steve Kerr, after his team's first practice of the season: 'These are not normal times.' As a candidate and as president, Trump's approach has at times seemed to inflame racial tensions in a deeply divided country while emboldening groups long in the shadows. The latest sports comments come a little over a month after Trump came under fire for his response to a white supremacists' protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump later pardoned Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Arizona's Maricopa County, who had been found guilty of defying a judge's order to stop racially profiling Latinos. Trump's latest entry into the intersection of sports and politics started in Alabama on Friday night, when he said NFL players who refused to stand for 'The Star-Spangled Banner' are exhibiting a 'total disrespect of our heritage.' Several NFL players, starting last season with then-San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, have either knelt, sat or raised fists during the anthem to protest police treatment of blacks and social injustice. Last week at NFL games, four players sat or knelt during the anthem, and two raised fists while others stood by the protesters in support. Other players have protested in different ways over the past season since Kaepernick began sitting during the 2016 preseason. 'That's a total disrespect of everything that we stand for,' Trump said, encouraging owners to act. He added, 'Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you'd say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired.' On Saturday, Trump echoed his stance. 'If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem,' Trump wrote in an afternoon pair of tweets. 'If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do!' Trump has enjoyed strong support from NFL owners, with at least seven of them donating $1 million each to Trump's inaugural committee. They include New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft, who Trump considers a friend. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell strongly backed the players while New York Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said the president's comments were inappropriate and offensive. Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who has supported the players who have knelt, said the country 'needs unifying leadership right now, not more divisiveness,' and San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York ripped Trump's comments as 'callous.' 'Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities,' Goodell said in a statement. Plenty of other current and former stars from across sports weighed in Saturday. Richard Sherman of Seattle Seahawks said the president's behavior is 'unacceptable and needs to be addressed.' In his Friday remarks, Trump also bemoaned what he called a decline in violence in football, noting that it's 'not the same game' because players are now either penalized or thrown out of games for aggressive tackles. 'No man or woman should ever have to choose a job that forces them to surrender their rights,' DeMaurice Smith, the NFL Players Association executive director, said Saturday. 'No worker nor any athlete, professional or not, should be forced to become less than human when it comes to protecting their basic health and safety.' Trump has met with some championship teams already in his first year in office. Clemson visited the White House this year after winning the College Football Playoff, some members of the New England Patriots went after the Super Bowl victory and the Chicago Cubs went to the Oval Office in June to commemorate their World Series title. The Cubs also had the larger and more traditional visit with President Barack Obama in January, four days before the Trump inauguration. North Carolina, the reigning NCAA men's basketball champion, said Saturday it will not visit the White House this season. The Tar Heels cited scheduling conflicts. Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, said Trump has 'taken indecency to a new low.' 'I think that the president has forgotten that he is the standard bearer for our country, that little boys and little girls look up to the president,' he said. 'Little boys and little girls want to be like the president. They want to talk like the president. I think that the president has insulted the American people with this low level of verbiage.' Warriors forward Draymond Green said the good news was that Golden State won't have to talk about going to the White House again — unless they win another title during the Trump presidency. 'Michelle Obama said it best,' Green said. 'She said it best. They go low. We go high. He beat us to the punch. Happy the game is over.' ___ Reynolds reported from Miami. AP Sports Writer Janie McCauley in Oakland, California, and AP writer Corey Williams in Detroit contributed to this story. .....»»
