County’s Top Public Health Official Reports Death Threats CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Monday, June 22, 2020 | 11:41 am Barbara Ferrer, Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public HealthLos Angeles County’s top public health official, who has led the fight against the coronavirus, said Monday her life has been threatened repeatedly but promised to continue to “follow the science.”Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, issued a statement that began, as her daily briefings do, with a recounting of the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths in the county to date and a moment to honor those who have been lost.“COVID-19 has upended thousands and thousands of lives all across the nation. The virus has changed our world as we know it, and people are angry. As of today, 83,397 cases have been reported in Los Angeles County and 3,120 people have died from this virus,” Ferrer said. “We mourn every single one of those deaths, and we are working tirelessly to slow the spread of COVID- 19 and find good solutions for the future of our communities.”Ferrer then noted that an increasing number of public health officials nationwide have been threatened with violence. Though Ferrer did not mention her by name, the former chief health officer for Orange County, Dr. Nichole Quick, resigned earlier this month as a result of such threats.“In my case, the death threats started last month, during a COVID-19 Facebook Live public briefing when someone very casually suggested that I should be shot,” Ferrer said. “I didn’t immediately see the message, but my husband did, my children did, and so did my colleagues.“One reason I handle these briefings myself is to shield the extraordinary team at L.A. County Public Health from these attacks which have been going on, via emails, public postings, and letters — since March,” she said. “It is deeply worrisome to imagine that our hardworking infectious disease physicians, nurses, epidemiologists and environmental health specialists or any of our other team members would have to face this level of hatred.”Ferrer acknowledged the frustration many feel over stay-at-home restrictions that have lead to job losses and economic struggles, but made clear that even as these rules are being relaxed and businesses are reopening, the fight against the virus is far from over.“We did not create this virus …. and while frustration boils over in our communities as people are done with this virus, this virus is not done with us,” Ferrer said. “As public health officials, we try hard not to be influenced by partisan politics or public sentiment — we must follow the science in order to save lives. And the science says if we don’t change the way we go about our daily routines, we could pay for it with our lives or the lives of others around us.”She urged people, as she does daily, to wear face coverings to stop the spread of the virus, comparing the masks to seatbelts, which the public also resisted.“The data proves that seatbelts save lives, and the data also proves that wearing a face covering will help stop transmission of COVID-19, which will save lives. And that’s what drives public health officials and is our passion: saving lives,” she said. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Major winter storm bringing dangerous snow, ice, rain to evening rush hour

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A major winter storm is barreling through the Northeast Tuesday, bringing dangerous snow, ice and rain to the evening rush hour commute.New York City was coated in snow Tuesday morning and the snow has since changed to sleet and freezing rain. Most areas saw .5 to 2 inches of snow or sleet with a glaze of ice.New York City’s evening rush hour will be messy as the sleet and freezing rain warms up to rain.Drivers should be prepared for “a slow slog,” said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who declared a state of emergency.“We continue to urge everybody to please take it slow and proceed with caution,” Murphy told reporters Tuesday.New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio added, “The evening rush hour will be very slippery. It’s going to be slower and more difficult than usual.”“If you have the option to not drive back but use mass transit, please do,” the mayor said.In Hartford, Connecticut, the snow will be transitioning to ice during the evening commute. While in Boston, snowfall may be especially heavy at that time.Public schools in Worcester, Massachusetts, are among those closed for the day.Three to 5 inches of snow and sleet will be possible in southern New England when the storm ends.The snow will eventually change to rain for all the Northeast coastal cities overnight, but inland, it’s a different story. In Pennsylvania, New York state and New England, some areas may see up to 1 foot of snow.The storm also stretches as far west as Minnesota, bringing heavy snow to Minneapolis and Green Bay.Up to 1 foot of snow is possible, as well as ice from Chicago to Detroit.The storm in the Northeast and Midwest moves out on Wednesday.Meanwhile, on the West Coast, Seattle is buried under record-breaking snow after it was hit on Monday with its fourth snowstorm in one week.With more than 20 inches from the storms, the city is experiencing its snowiest February on record and snowiest overall month in 50 years.That storm is now headed for California, which should see significant rainfall in San Francisco and Los Angeles on Wednesday.Mudslides and flash flooding are possible.The heaviest rainfall will be in Northern California, where residents could see more than 4 inches of rain.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The Revivalists’ David Shaw Gets Mauled By Tiger Onstage, Keeps Going

first_imgThe Revivalists are true road warriors, selling out venues of all sizes nationwide. Beyond his charismatic stage presence and truly outstanding talents, frontman David Shaw is known for pushing the limits in extreme situations. Such was the case on Friday night when the band played an impromptu outdoor show in Pensacola, Florida.The band was going through their standard set, mixing songs from their 2015 release Men Amongst Mountains amongst fan-favorites like “Soulfight,” “Catching Fireflies,” and, of course, “Stand Up.” Frontman Shaw, pedal steel guitarist Ed Williams, bassist George Gekas, guitarist Zack Feinberg, drummer Andrew Campanelli, saxophonist Rob Ingraham, and keyboardist/trumpeter Michael Girardot then introduced a new cover, “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor.Fans were stoked on the debut, until things suddenly took a turn for the worse. An escaped tiger barreled onto the stage and went straight for Mr. Shaw, who blocked its face with his newly-branded African-tribe tatted-up arm, then promptly wrestled it to the ground. After a brief scuffle, the tiger ran off, looking a little worse for the wear, but not before it was able to gash open Shaw’s head.That didn’t stop the Hamilton-bred, New Orleans-based rockstar, who was bleeding profusely onto the stage and, at points, crowd. The band quickly moved straight into their 2015 single “Keep Going,” bringing the energy in the crowd to an all-time-high despite Shaw’s blood volume being at an all-time low. It was a night to remember to say the least. Check out the photo of Shaw’s injury below.[photo via The Revivalists]Happy April Fools!last_img read more

Embracing the unscripted life

first_imgIn a time of global change and uncertainty, Harvard continues to support, encourage, challenge, and prepare its students to face times of calm and crisis and help them to understand that “life never follows a script,” Harvard President Drew Faust told the College’s Class of 2010 on Tuesday (May 25).Faust’s remarks in the Memorial Church were part of the annual Baccalaureate Address, a Commencement week ritual dating to 1642 that gathers seniors for an informal farewell from the University’s president and the clergy.In her speech, Faust recalled the words of Robert F. Kennedy, who addressed South African students in 1966 who were fighting to end apartheid. Kennedy, said Faust, told those students that they lived in times of danger and uncertainty, but also in times of great possibility.“Now you have your own uncertainties and dangers and your own scripts to write,” Faust told the seniors. “The world has never needed you more. And we send you into that world with our confidence — our confidence in your commitment and our confidence in your abilities to create a script from the unexpected for which you are so well prepared.”On the hottest day of the year, the young men and women poured into the sweltering Memorial Church, dressed in their traditional black caps and gowns for their Harvard farewell.The time-honored ceremony included readings from Hindu scripture, the Holy Quran, the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and the Analects of Confucius. In addition, there were comments from the Rev. Peter J. Gomes, the Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church.As is customary, Gomes was stationed at the church’s front steps and welcomed the seniors, who processed in a long line that snaked through the Old Yard. He greeted them with a solemn nod or friendly word.Faust said that changes at Harvard, ranging from the reforms in its financial aid programs to the successful introduction of a new undergraduate General Education curriculum, combined with a changing global landscape, provided lessons for the seniors that were “too important to forget.”Her first lesson concerned humility.“If Harvard graduates were writing the book on it, someone once said, the title would have to be ‘Humility and How I Achieved It,’ ” Faust joked. But, she added, “humility, in fact, is what makes learning possible — the sense of ignorance fueling the desire to overcome it.”Reiterating her “parking space theory of life,” Faust encouraged the seniors, in her second lesson, to be risk takers and aim for goals where they can do what they love.“Don’t park 10 blocks away from your destination because you think you’ll never find a closer space. Go to where you want to be. You can always circle back to where you have to be.”The students were well aware of her third important lesson, she said, that “the world really needs you,” acknowledging that they had already developed “a deep sense of obligation” through extensive humanitarian work and volunteer efforts.“You need to be the authors, the entrepreneurs, of your own lives,” offered Faust as her final lesson. “And this part I don’t have to tell you either. You are already doing it,” she said, referring to student projects such as a nonprofit group that built a girls school in Afghanistan. She also mentioned a soccer ball, born out of an engineering class assignment, that “can store energy and convert a playground ballgame into a power source for people in developing nations.”“Keep asking the big, irrelevant questions; keep thinking beyond the present,” Faust told the students. “Then live what you have learned.”Senior and Adams House resident Crystal Chang, a molecular and cellular biology concentrator who has plans to attend dental school, said Faust’s theme of embracing a life that doesn’t go according to a script is a message that everyone can appreciate.“It was very encouraging and very inspiring at the same time,” she said.last_img read more
