Letters to the Editor for Monday, March 18

first_imgWe often hear about a “woman’s intuition.” What if prodigies and women share one thing in common, the ability to communicate with a higher power? This is knowing without knowing how or why. Men have had a thousand years to solve humanity’s problems; they have failed miserably. The only way we are going to be able to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, disease, war and climate change is if women, relying on their intuition, collectively and individually solve them.If a woman is picked to run on the Democratic ticket, I will go on the record now of pledging $10,000 to the Democratic National Committee if a woman is picked to head the party.Americans will have a real choice in 2020; they can rely on women and their intuition or Donald Trump whose only source of knowledge is Fox News, who relies only on his own “native” intelligent without any input from intuition. There can be no greater choice between Democrats and Republicans. Richard MoodyMiddleburgh Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMen in power have failed, let’s try women insteadcenter_img Leverage water in AmsterdamWith a green movement underway with new solar, and wind farms, we should also look into what made Amsterdam the manufacturing city it was, and that is water. Amsterdam was formed where the Chuctanunda Creek, and the Mohawk River meet which helped power many of the mills that put Amsterdam on the map. There are many old dams along the Chuctanunda in Amsterdam that were used before for power so why not make them useful again? Amsterdam, along with county, and state officials can look into repairing those dams to make hydroelectricity that can power either government buildings, homes, businesses, or directly into the grid. With the newly constructed Chuctanunda Creek Trail which goes past these dams, the trail can help people see the historic dams, but also see how they are shaping Amsterdam’s future. The former polluted creek can have the potential to reduce the city’s carbon footprint, and I hoped is looked into more by government officials. While Amsterdam isn’t the manufacturing city it once was, these dams can help the city be known for something else.

Read More Italian giant AS Roma has announced the club’s first commercial partnership with Chipper in advancing football in Nigeria and other African countries, Sportinglife.ng reports. The partnership which sees Chipper becomes the club’s official Money Transfer Platform for Africa, kicks off with a powerful community impact project between Chipper and AS Roma, who are making special edition AS Roma x Chipper footballs, that are handmade in Africa and made to last 8x longer than standard synthetic balls. The balls will be distributed to grassroots programs in communities facing disadvantage in Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Uganda and South Africa, as well as through AS Roma’s youth partners in Nigeria. “We are delighted to welcome Chipper into the AS Roma family,” said Giorgio Brambilla, Commercial Director at AS Roma. “We have been greatly impressed by what Chipper has already achieved in such a short space of time with their technology and financial solutions and their plans for the future are hugely ambitious.” Inspired by the Chipper’s mission to “chip away” at the financial challenges facing the region, AS Roma and Chipper have utilized their respective expertise to design a set of drills which incorporates financial education with football training. This fun, educational, and creative set of drills will not only be given out with each football but it will be made available for free to everyone. The special edition Chipper x AS Roma balls are being made in partnership with Alive and Kicking, the world’s only not-for-profit ball manufacturer and the only formal ball producer on the African continent. At the 2018 World Cup, with Italy having failed the qualify for the tournament, Roma famously lent its support to Nigeria’s national team, the Super Eagles, before becoming the first football club in the world to launch dedicated social media accounts in both Pidgin and Swahili, both of which will now be presented by Chipper. “Our mission at Chipper is to unlock opportunities and bring Africa together, one transaction at a time,” says Hasan Luongo, Vice President of Growth at Chipper. “At Chipper, we wanted a partner that shared our vision for unlocking opportunities and developing football in Africa and, in AS Roma, we have found the perfect fit. Partnering with AS Roma provides a unique opportunity to both celebrate and support AS Roma and the continent’s unmatched passion for the game of football.” About Chipper: Founded by Africans and built out by a global team, Chipper provides fair financial services that allow its users to move their money freely at home, across the continent and around the world. In providing a new way to transact, Chipper ‘chips away’ at the financial challenges facing the region. Learn more at www.chipperscash.com.

Veterans Face Transportation Barriers When Seeking VA Health Care

first_img WMFE: Time-Consuming Trip To And From New VA Hospital Fox News: IG Report: 300,000 Vets Died While Waiting For Health Care At VA Veterans Face Transportation Barriers When Seeking VA Health Care Meanwhile, an inspector general report finds “serious” problems with enrollment data among the wider Department of Veterans Affairs issues delaying care. This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations. Sign up for an email subscription.center_img More than 300,000 American military veterans likely died while waiting for health care — and nearly twice as many are still waiting — according to a new Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general report. The IG report says “serious” problems with enrollment data are making it impossible to determine exactly how many veterans are actively seeking health care from the VA, and how many were. For example, “data limitations” prevent investigators from determining how many now-deceased veterans applied for health care benefits or when. (9/3) Floridians depend on cars to get just about anywhere. And getting to the doctor without one can be tough. Orlando resident David Williams knows this reality well, especially since the brand new Orlando VA Medical Center moved from the downtown core to the suburbs. (Aboraya, 9/3) last_img read more
