‘This Shouldn’t Be About Politics.’ Hong Kong Medical Workers Call for Border Shutdown Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Hong Kong’s medical system came under strain Tuesday as thousands of hospital staff joined an escalating strike aimed at pressuring the government into sealing the border with mainland China amid the deadly coronavirus outbreak, which claimed its first local fatality in the early morning. Facing staff shortages, public hospitals curtailed services to focus on emergencies only, according to the city’s Hospital Authority. It called on patients with minor conditions to seek private care.

My internet company charges me twice as much for internet as other companies because I have no choice, but 5G will fix that

Many Americans have only a single option for internet service providers (ISPs) that effectively hold a monopoly over an area.  ISPs that control an area often have no incentive to lower their prices, or even improve their services and products. As an example, my ISP charges me $80 per month while another ISP might charge $40 per month for the exact same service.  Netgear CEO Patrick Lo told Business Insider that 5G wireless networks would change that, and would allow new ISPs and operators to ...

Whicker: Super-lightweight champ Jose Ramirez might be on verge of two long campaigns

RIVERSIDE — Last July, Jose Ramirez was boxing Maurice Hooker for two super-lightweight championships in Arlington, Texas. “It was on his network, in his hometown, in front of Texas judges,” said Robert Garcia, Ramirez’s trainer. “The first four rounds were close. I told Jose, hey, we’ve got a lot going against us here. You’ll have to give me a little more.” Garcia was hoping Ramirez would turn on the juice in the last 20 or 30 seconds in order to steal rounds. Ramirez replied, “Okay, tell me wh...

Bonus tracks from Reasonably Suspicious interview with #RodneyReed's attorneys: Why all the forensics from his case have been discredited

For the October Reasonably Suspicious podcast, my co-host Mandy Marzullo and I interviewed attorneys for death-row inmate Rodney Reed, who is scheduled to be executed on November 20th. Despite this apparent failure, Bryce Benjet of the national Innocence Project and Quinncy McNeal of Mayer-Brown in Houston are in fact excellent lawyers, and their habeas-corpus-phase deconstruction has left little evidence remaining from the prosecution's case that convicted their client.Regardless, Reed's execu...

Buffalo Beauts D Lenka Čurmová Is Making History

Lenka Čurmová has been a difference maker for the Buffalo Beauts since training camp. She added an exclamation point to that notion in her very first NWHL regular season game. The 5-foot-8 Slovakian defender had a number of noteworthy firsts in the Beauts 3-1 victory over the Connecticut Whale on Oct. 5, 2019. Čurmová opened the scoring with a goal on the power play at 4:29 of the first period. While MJ Pelletier and Corinne Buie picked up the assists, the goal itself was the first o...

Tips to Avoid Talking Too Much to Reverse Mortgage Borrowers

While reverse mortgage originators are likely to agree that they need to give potential borrowers all the information they need in order to make an informed decision, talking too much about reverse mortgage product features and details could actually work far more against a loan officer’s efforts. It also has the potential to affect the tens of millions of Medicare beneficiaries that populate the United States. This was the main argument made by Craig Barnes, education leader at Reverse Mortg...

Comment on cabbage and mushroom “lasagna” by Claire

Deb, you never lead us astray. I “made” this this morning but actually didn’t finish because we started eating it during the phase where the mushrooms and cabbage simmer in the bechamel sauce. My 18 month old son was particularly crabby and wanted me to hold him and let him stir everything himself. The sitter was here but even she couldn’t keep him from the stove. Lo and behold we tasted it to check the seasoning while waiting for everything to thicken up…and then just kept eating. Lunch was a b...

My giant dog and his achy joints love this bed

My Great Pyrenees, Nemo, loves sleeping on this pet bed so much I got him two. Nemo could not have been comfortable sleeping on my tiled floors, or the hardwood, but he hates sleeping on the bed with me. My father kept asking me why I didn't get him a bed and I kept thinking Nemo'd ignore a mattress, but I gave it a shot... Lo and behold! Nemo loves laying around on his doggie bed. I got tired of dragging the one around the house for him, so I got a second for his other favorite place to s...
