Obama to Hit Campaign Trail for Democrats in California and Ohio

Siphiwe Sibeko

Former President Barack Obama will finally leap back into the political fray this weekend, campaigning for various Democratic candidates ahead of this fall’s crucial midterm elections.

In his first stop, Obama will campaign in Orange County, California, a typically Republican stronghold where Democrats now hope to flip congressional seats in November.

On Saturday, the former president will rally with seven Democratic congressional candidates, including Josh Harder (CA-10), TJ Cox (CA-21), Katie Hill (CA-25), Gil Cisneros (CA-39), Katie Porter (CA-45), Harley Rouda (CA-48) and Mike Levin (CA-49). These districts are all significant to the Democratic party’s attempts to regain a majority in the House of Representatives, as they are Republican-held but won by Hillary Clinton in 2016.

California Net Neutrality Bill Heads to Governor’s Desk

California lawmakers have greenlit a net neutrality bill that will be the strongest government-mandated protections in the country, but are likely to wind up in a courtroom battle with the FCC. The bill still needs Governor Jerry Brown’s signature to become law, however. The state Senate voted to pass the legislation on Friday, a day […]

Cancer, Schmancer. In California, Coffee Is King

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — It turns out that California and the Trump administration do agree on at least one thing: Don’t mess with coffee.

Trump’s hand-picked food and drug czar, Scott Gottlieb, said Wednesday that he “strongly supports” a proposal by officials in Sacramento to exempt the morning elixir from the state’s list of known cancer-causing compounds despite a court order to the contrary.

I think coffee is fantastic. I think it’s good for me, good for my heart, makes me happy.

Sid Silverthorn, who drinks about three cups of coffee a day. As a cancer survivor, he says, of all the things alleged to cause cancer, coffee is the least of his worries.

Java fans received the news nonchalantly, making it clear they would not be put off their cup of Joe no matter what Gottlieb or state officials had to say about it.

Sid Silverthorn, sipping his favorite hot beverage outside a Sacramento Starbucks, said he’d been treated for prostate cancer a couple of decades back and since his recovery has been vigilant about products that could harm his health.

Coffee, he said, is not one of them.

“I think coffee is fantastic,” the 88-year-old said with relish. “I think it’s good for me, good for my heart, makes me happy.”

Despite the passion of hard-core consumers like Silverthorn, vendors worry that cancer warnings posted on their doors wouldn’t exactly be seen as welcome signs.

“I think it would evoke a visceral reaction,” said Lauren Taber, spokeswoman for Pachamama Coffee Cooperative in Sacramento. “People go into their local coffee shop and think ‘Wait, I can get cancer from this?’”

In this state, coffee drinks can be an art form — with devotees routinely laying out $ 5 or more for triple non-fat spiced lattes, extra hot or upside down. But that has clashed in this case with another state obsession: triple-checking the purity of food and drink.

The whole brewhaha started with an eight-year-old lawsuit that culminated earlier this year with a Los Angeles Superior Court judge’s ruling that coffee must be labeled a carcinogen under California’s Proposition 65, a law that requires public disclosure of chemicals determined by the state to pose a risk of cancer.

I think it would evoke a visceral reaction … People go into their local coffee shop and think, ‘Wait, I can get cancer from this?'

At issue is a chemical called acrylamide, a byproduct of coffee roasting also present in many other foods that are roasted, fried or baked. It is already on California’s list of potential cancer-causing agents, but had not been widely associated with coffee until the lawsuit. Industry officials argue that a cancer warning is off base, because coffee contains only trace amounts of acrylamide.

The state agency that oversees Proposition 65, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, responded in June to the judge’s ruling with a proposal to exempt coffee from the cancer disclosure law.

The agency pointed to a report by the World Health Organization’s international Agency for Research on Cancer that concluded there was “inadequate evidence” to link coffee drinking to malignancies. In fact, the report found that coffee was associated with a reduced risk of liver and uterine cancer and was not a cause of breast, pancreatic or prostate cancer.

The agency aims to finalize its proposed regulation by the end of this year.

Gottlieb, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said a cancer warning on coffee “would be more likely to mislead consumers than to inform them.” And, he said, it could violate a federal law that prohibits misleading labels on food.

But at this point I don’t think it makes a difference to people. … We’re all addicted.

The coffee industry’s main trade group, which counts Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts among its members, warmly welcomed Gottlieb’s support.

“Now that science has so comprehensively established the facts on coffee, we believe it is incumbent on regulators to give citizens confidence in what they are consuming,” Bill Murray, CEO and president of the National Coffee Association, said in an email.

Kirsten Richardson, 30, a North Carolina resident who was visiting Sacramento this week and stopped in for a vanilla latte at The Mill, a local coffee shop, said she was glad to hear the FDA had vindicated her favorite drink.

“But at this point I don’t think it makes a difference to people,” she added. “We’re all addicted.”

Jerry Brown Declares Surfing the Sport of California – A Random Law?

There are a handful of mixed emotions with this news being: random, confused, appreciated, but also even more confused?!

Governor Jerry Brown made the pending news official by signing a bill stating so.

“The new law declares surfing to be “an iconic California sport” — though it acknowledges that surfing originated with the Polynesian people and was imported into California from Hawaii.” – nypost.com

If you were a surfer living in California before this law was passed and the “craze of surfing hit the west coast in a legal way”, you would know that you can’t watch world tour surf events televised. You can only view the world’s best surfers travel from country to country and surf the best waves in the world if you were to tune into your WSL app and stream the event.

With this law passed – does this mean things will change? Surfers will now be able to tune in to an official channel and watch the world tour just like every American nestling into their lazy boy chair for football season. To me, this law just seems random and out of place. Where was this representation of ‘surfing’ before?

Another interesting point is as the popularity of surfing grows, so do the number of people in the line-up. If you know the history of surfing, you know the sport is incredibly sacred. There are rules to the line-up, there must be respect for the ocean and others in the water, and there is an overall underlying sub-culture within the sport. To this day, there are still spots you keep secret from those that are new to surfing for preservation of the sport. Will surfing become so mainstream that paddling out will be an absolute nightmare? Will a number of new surfers outweigh the amount of experienced surfers out in the line-up? There are so many unanswered questions.

But there is one thing I know, we have to educate. If we get outnumbered by bandwagon surfers, we need to make sure to inform others the rules to the line-up, help them understand the respect they must have for the ocean and others in the water, and understand that this is an incredibly personal and sacred sport. We must preserve surfing.

Avid surfer and Democratic state Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi of Torrance comments on the matter – “I am stoked that surfing is now California’s official sport. No other sport represents the California Dream better than surfing — riding the waves of opportunity and living in harmony with nature.”

What are your personal thoughts on this new law?

California Crews Scramble To Keep Flames From Reaching Homes

(AP Photo)

LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) — More than 1,000 firefighters battled Friday to keep a growing Southern California forest fire feeding on dry brush and trees from reaching foothill neighborhoods a day after flames roared to new ferocity and came within yards of homes.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for Orange and Riverside counties as the fire carved its way along ridges in the Cleveland National Forest.

Some hillsides were allowed to burn under the watchful eyes of firefighters — to reduce fuel and make it harder for flames to jump roadways into communities if winds pick up again.

Aircraft dropped retardant as homeowners sprayed their houses with water from garden hoses while the blaze south of Los Angeles gained renewed strength Thursday evening, propelled by 20-mph (30-kph) gusts.

Hundreds more firefighters joined the effort, bringing the total to 1,200. The fire has chewed through 28 square miles (72 square kilometers) of dense chaparral and is only 5 percent contained.

It’s one of nearly 20 blazes across the state. Officials reported progress in the fight against two major Northern California wildfires — one called the Mendocino Complex Fire that is the largest in state history — burning more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Sacramento.

Cleveland National Forest officials tweeted that the Southern California fire is growing as fast as crews can build containment lines.

“We continue to actively engage, but cannot get ahead of the fire,” the statement said.

Teresita Reyes was among some 20,000 people under evacuation orders, saying she was attending a wedding Wednesday when she received the order to evacuate. The 51-year-old state health inspector congratulated the couple and left quietly to head back to her house in the city of Lake Elsinore and grab important documents.

Since then, Reyes and her husband have been staying at a hotel with a faulty air conditioner while their three dogs and cat are holed up at the family’s plumbing business.

“It is nerve-wracking and unreal,” she said. “We were on pins and needles for a little while there because it got real close.”

Brown’s proclamation late Thursday ordered state agencies to help local governments.

Fifty miles (80 kilometers) west of the fire, residents in the city of Long Beach awoke to ash on their cars and in their yards.

A resident of the small community of Holy Jim Canyon in the forest was scheduled for a court hearing Friday on charges that he deliberately set the fire.

Forrest Clark, 51, is charged with arson and other crimes and could face life in prison if convicted. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Michael Milligan, chief of the Holy Jim Volunteer Fire Department, told the Orange County Register that Clark had a decade-long feud with neighbors and sent him threatening emails last week, including one that said, “this place will burn.”

The fire — named for the canyon where it started — destroyed a dozen cabins after it broke out Monday.

Firefighters are trying to keep flames away from Santiago Peak, where critical communication infrastructure for the region is located.

Crews turned a corner in their battle against a Northern California fire and achieved 51 percent containment of the Mendocino Complex — actually twin fires that are being fought together. The fire destroyed more than 100 homes and has blackened an area about the size of the city of Los Angeles.

And near the Northern California city of Redding, the year’s deadliest fire was nearly half surrounded and was burning into remote and rugged forest land.

Firefighters had almost contained a huge fire near Yosemite National Park.

The fires all grew explosively in the past two weeks as winds whipped the flames through forest and rural areas full of timber and brush that is bone-dry from years of drought and a summer of record-breaking heat.

Air quality has been another casualty of the fires. A smoky haze stretches from the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range to Sacramento and hovers over the San Francisco Bay Area, with most major population centers in between enduring air quality that’s considered dangerous for many residents.

The sheer size of the fires is numbing in a state that is still reeling from enormous blazes last year and has yet to hit its historically most dangerous months.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Blasts Google for Linking California GOP to Nazism

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Google on Thursday for listing “Nazism” as one of the ideologies of the California Republican Party.

“Dear @Google, This is a disgrace,” McCarthy tweeted along with an image of a Google search result showing Nazism as an ideology of the California GOP.

In another tweet, McCarthy also called the results “the latest incident in a disturbing trend to slander conservatives.”

The reference to Nazism appeared in Google’s “knowledge panel,” which offers summarized search results drawn from a number of sources including Wikipedia. The results changed to eliminate the ideologies during the day on Thursday, according to Vice News, after the website reached out to ask Google about the controversy.

A Google spokesperson told the site it does not politicize search results and that the “Nazism” listing for the California Republican Party was not implemented by a Google employee.

“We regret that vandalism on Wikipedia briefly appeared on our search results. This was not the the result of a manual change by Google,” a Google Communications account tweeted in response to McCarthy. “We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that happened here.”

Still, other conservatives expressed anger at the situation as well. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted his displeasure, and linked the Google results to another tech complaint he had this month. He told his followers last week that Instagram provided a warning message saying posts with his name often “encourage” harmful behavior.

This latest tech controversy comes shortly after the Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump’s reelection committee sent a letter May 17 asking Facebook and Twitter to address political bias on their social media platforms.

Meet the California Students Demanding On-Campus Abortion Access

Adiba Khan and Marandah Rain Field-Elliot, seniors at the University of California in Berkeley, are part of a student-led revolution in the state demanding an expansion of access to comprehensive reproductive health care at public universities.

via Students United for Reproductive Justice at Berkeley on Facebook

Together with Phoebe Abramowitz, Khan and Field-Elliot co-authored the College Student Right to Access Act (SB 320), which would require universities across the golden state to offer medication abortion at on-campus health centers. It was introduced in the state senate earlier this year by Senator Connie Leyva; Khan and Field-Elliot plan to work as full-time organizers advocating for the legislation after graduating this month.

Despite false anti-abortion claims that the pill is dangerous, medication abortion has an over 98 percent success rate—and is safer than many of the services currently offered at college health centers. SB 320 would remove unnecessary barriers to medication abortion on campuses across the state, providing critical care to, especially, students of color and low-income students who feel the impact of anti-abortion policies and practices disproportionately.

Khan and Field-Elliot talked to Ms. about the logistical challenges they’ve faced in their groundbreaking efforts—and the importance of demonstrating campus-wide support for reproductive healthcare access.

Reproductive justice advocates have said your work will change how we look at abortion accessibility. What makes SB 320 such a revolutionary bill?

AK: This is the first time in history that legislation has broadly attempted to offer abortion care across public university systems—in addition to making abortion seen as a positive and good service. It is a bill that centers abortion as not simply just “the right to choose,” but, if it passes, ensures concrete accessibility and visibility.

MF: This bill demonstrates that students can be change makers and that we can demand access to abortion in our own spaces. This bill would ensure that medication abortion services are available to all students who might need them, wherever they live or go to school or however much money they make. That’s a game changer—not only for students who are considering abortion and need care, but also for how we think about reproductive health and abortion care more generally. By integrating abortion care into the services provided by student health centers, which are the primary source of medical care for students, this bill tackles stigma head-on and helps normalize abortion and women’s reproductive health care. Students already seek abortion care but are being forced to go off campus, which is an unnecessary barrier that can make it difficult to access affordable care. It’s not easy to raise the money or find transportation to get to a far-away clinic—some students in the state have to travel upwards of 4 hours for abortion care.

AK: Offering medication abortion on campus is an important step towards ensuring students have meaningful access to the full range of reproductive care. This is critical for students because they now will have the ability to make choices about their reproductive bodies, including the choice and having legitimate access to ending a pregnancy. Many students across the UC system are lower-income, work to fund tuition in addition to taking classes and are from underrepresented communities. Having this service allows students to have support right on campus and ensures students don’t have to miss work or class to access abortion. By integrating abortion as a “regular” health service, the stigma of it will decrease, and this will help students feel less stigmatized for having an abortion because the service is not discrete but widely visible. If passed, millions of students across California now will have the ability to access a service that has been for decades declared their constitutional right.

What challenges have you faced in this campaign?

AK: At Berkeley, our administration often cited lack of money and security concerns as a reason to not provide the service. After SB 320 was introduced, we experienced obstacles in securing funding for implementation of medication abortion services across California’s public university systems. We also ended up having to write out community colleges from the bill. Fortunately, we’ve secured the necessary funds to carry out the vision of the bill—but we still have to convince legislators and university administrators of why it’s critical to ensure abortion access and why the abortion pill should be available at student health centers.

MF: People often raise concerns about the costs associated with implementing the bill. Fortunately, a consortium of funders has stepped forward to cover the costs to bring medication abortion to public university student health centers in California if SB 320 becomes law. The funds are sufficient to bring the abortion pill to every University of California and California State University school—as well as any private or community college that opts in. Aside from that, one of the biggest challenges is convincing even liberal-leaning decision makers that abortion access is worth taking the political risk to invest in.

How have you fought back?

AK: Our student organizing when the campaign was first starting at UC Berkeley included using petitions to secure meetings with university administrators in addition to securing passage of a symbolic resolution we authored in the student senate. Our petitions played a key role in the passage of the resolution, which urged our health center to provide medication abortion. Media coverage about the resolution was noticed by The Women’s Foundation of CA, [which led to the launch of a state-wide campaign].

MF: Demonstrating campus support has been crucial to this work since day one. We wouldn’t have the campaign that we have today without effective campus organizing. That’s how all this started—and now we have a statewide campaign of students and allies across California who are working to pass SB 320. The campaign includes bill sponsors Access Women’s Health Justice, Act for Women and Girls, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice, Berkeley Students for Reproductive Justice and the Women’s Foundation of California.

Has the administration been supportive?

AK: Our experience working with the administration has not been positive. We’ve done everything they’ve asked—studied the student health centers to be assured they are able to provide this service, securing funds for implementation, making a case for why these services are needed and building support among the student body—but none of that mattered to them because they only seemed concerned about their public image and not having to deal with a service that is politically charged.

As a woman of color, I’ve been really troubled the lack of diversity among the administrators I’ve worked with. I want to stress how every single major administration I worked with was white. Only one of these administrators seemed genuinely on board with our campaign becoming a reality. All of the health administration and almost the entirety of university administration. Representation at high levels of power can contribute to advancing progressive and proactive measures that that support and assist communities of color.

MF: The university administration has been frustrating to work with. We’ve repeatedly been told that while the administration is “pro-choice,” but they aren’t willing to actually ensure students can access abortion care because they’re afraid of the public relations backlash. Students shouldn’t have to wait for student health centers to do what they can and should do.

What do you think of criticisms from anti-abortion activists that the bill could be a liability to California’s public universities?

AK: The abortion pill is actually much simpler to provide than some of the care already offered at student health centers. Many on-campus student health centers also offer other reproductive health services including pregnancy options counseling, birth control and sexually transmitted infections testing—just not abortion. The liability associated with providing medication abortion is no different from any of these other services.

MF: Those criticisms aren’t based on facts—it’s just rhetoric that anti-abortion activists use to stop abortion or at least push it out of reach. There is overwhelming evidence proving that abortion pill is safe and effective. It’s FDA-approved and works effectively 98 percent of the time—this was confirmed very recently in a report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine. It can and should be offered at every student health center.

What sparked your interest in reproductive justice?

AK: My interest was shaped by my experience growing up in Oklahoma and witnessing classmates suffer from a lack of access and ability to make autonomous choices about their reproductive lives. I experienced fear of the impact of not only the lack of access to affordable reproductive health care, but the absence of reproductive rights; I was surprised to know that while California has enacted progressive reproductive rights, that does not translate into accessibility. Our movement is not about “the right to choose,” but about the idea that anyone should be able to have access to their rights.

MF: I was inspired to join SURJ after being in Washington, D.C. during the release of the 2015 videos slandering Planned Parenthood. It was then that I fully grasped the magnitude of the threats to abortion rights, and how the only way we can ensure access for all people is if young people rise up to demand change.

How has attending UC Berkeley shaped your interest in student activism?

AK: I genuinely believe the ability for students to have organized effectively to advance our original local campaign at UC Berkeley would not have been possible without students and faculty who share an understanding for progressive advances within reproductive justice. While we experienced obstacles during our negotiations with UC Berkeley health and the university administration during the original campaign, our student body played an integral role in not only advancing our campaign, but in shaping it in becoming a statewide bill.

MF: Being at such a politically charged, historically activist campus has empowered me to work with other change-makers on my campus. We may work in different issue areas, but we all share the same vision of a more progressive future.

What advice do you have for students who want to get involved in the reproductive justice movement but lack experience in activism?

AK: When I began this campaign as a sophomore, I also had no previous experience in activism. My advice is to learn to be patient and to take incremental steps to make your vision a reality. This campaign started two years ago and we’ll soon be coming up on year three. While a single person may be able to spark a movement like I did, it requires various people to ensure the growth, progression and legitimacy of a campaign. Organize with others who share the same vision and seek advice and help from those who have the power or resources to support you in achieving your goal. Most importantly, you will feel burned out and defeated at times and that’s normal but doesn’t mean the movement is over. Sometimes you just need to find a different path. The university administration didn’t grant our initial request, but now we have an actual piece of legislation that will have an even greater impact that we originally intended.

MF: The biggest piece of advice I have is to understand that this work can happen both incredibly slowly and incredibly quickly. For a long time, I felt like the grueling work we were putting in was not leading to any change. Then, it seemed like all of a sudden, this bill skyrocketed and became a statewide movement. But you have to recognize that even when you feel like nothing is happening with your work, you are making change and that change will soon be evident. Keep working, keep mobilizing, keep pushing for better access.

Cannabis tourism in California – a women’s wellness retreat with puff love

At the Ganja Goddess Getaway, yes, there are yoga classes and spiritual talks but the mother lode comes from the spliffs, edibles and pot-infused mocktails that aid the healing

Wearing a T-shirt with the slogan “Mary Jane Smokewear”, a woman with long, grey pigtails crawled towards me, offering a hit off a balloon bag inflated with marijuana vapours. I was sitting cross-legged under a Ganja Goddess Getaway-branded gazebo on a perfect California afternoon and it was the umpteenth time that day that a stranger had come over, unprompted, to share their weed.

The bag was just one way my fellow ganja goddesses were getting high. Plates piled with spliffs, giant blunts, laced caramel-pecan candies and fruity mocktails enhanced with pot-infused tinctures also made the rounds. At one point, I was handed a wizard pipe packed with a “tiramisu”. Where a domestic goddess might use cream and ladyfingers, a ganja goddess gets “baking” with alternating layers of green and hash.

Kaiser Permanente Provides Total Health Care to Special Olympics Southern California as the ‘Official Health Partner’

PASADENA, Calif. — Kaiser Permanente Southern California has signed a three-year agreement as the “Official Health Partner” for Special Olympics Southern California. In yesterday’s contract signing, the two entities acknowledged their shared vision and commitment to diversity, inclusion and total health for individuals and communities.

“There are many reasons why this partnership works,” said Julie Miller-Phipps, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals, Inc., for the Southern California Region. “Special Olympics Southern California has led the charge in transforming lives through the joy of sport for people with intellectual disabilities and in doing so they have reached, touched and taught the public about the importance of inclusion and acceptance of each other’s differences. We believe that by actively supporting and participating in SOSC events, we can strengthen and spread further a message of understanding and respect for children and adults with intellectual disabilities throughout the communities we serve.”

“Improving the health and wellness of individuals with intellectual disabilities is one of Special Olympics Southern California’s goals,” said Bill Shumard, president and CEO of Special Olympics Southern California. “With Kaiser Permanente as a teammate, we’ll be able to transform even more lives through health education, health promotion and health care. We look forward to partnering with them over the years.”

As part of the commitment, Kaiser Permanente has appointed Southern California Permanente Medical Group Family and Sports Medicine physician, Aaron Rubin, MD, to serve as the official chief medical officer for SOSC.

“Providing exceptional care to the communities we serve is part of what drives our physicians at Kaiser Permanente. The inspiring Special Olympics athletes will receive the highest standard of medical expertise and sideline care from our Permanente physicians, led by Dr. Aaron Rubin. SOSC can rest assured that their athletes are in good hands with him at the helm,” said Edward M. Ellison, MD, executive medical director for the Southern California Permanente Medical Group.

Dr. Rubin, who previously served as medical director of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games Los Angeles, will oversee approximately 40 Southern California Permanente Medical Group physicians and medical support staff at the games, providing sideline medical care and ongoing medical care to the athletes and SOSC over the next three years. The medical team will also assist SOSC’s Healthy Athletes, a program that provides free health screening to all SOSC athletes.

Kaiser Permanente staff and physicians will volunteer at SOSC competitions throughout the year, including the 2018 Summer Games on June 9 and 10 at California State University, Long Beach. More than 1,100 athletes from across Southern California will compete for gold, silver and bronze medals and ribbons. The Games feature four sports: track and field, basketball, bocce and swimming, and will introduce a new sport, flag football. The Games are free and open to the public.

Dennis Rodman Enters Rehab for ‘His Issue with Alcohol’ After DUI Arrest in California

Dennis Rodman has entered rehab after he was arrested Saturday night for DUI in Newport Beach, California.

Rodman’s agent, Dennis Prince, tells PEOPLE the decision was made by Rodman, saying, “Dennis decided it was time to get help for his issue with alcohol and finally get to the underlying root before it’s too late.”

Prince added he was “very proud and supportive” of Rodman and asked for “prayers and support at this time.”

According to TMZ, Rodman was pulled over for a traffic violation on Saturday at about 11 p.m. Rodman reportedly failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.

Rodman, a five-time NBA champion and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, was previously arrested for DUI in December 1999 in California. He pled guilty in that case, causing him to attend a three-month alcohol program and pay around $ 2,000 in fines, according to ABC News.

He previously checked into rehab in 2014. In 2016, he was charged with a hit-and-run for a wrong-way related crash on a Southern California freeway. He was also charged with driving across a dividing section and without a valid license, as well as giving police false information.

Rodman, 56, played 14 seasons in the NBA, spending the first seven years with the Pistons before two years with the Spurs followed by three seasons with the Bulls. He closed his career with short stints on the Lakers and then Mavericks. During his career, he made the All-Star game twice and made eight All-Defensive teams.

Keep cell phones away from your body, warns the California Department of Public Health

Are cell phones bad

How far away is your cell phone from you right now as you read this? Is it sitting right next to you on your desk or your bedside table? Is it in your pocket? Either way, no matter how badly you think you need your smartphone within arm’s length at all times, you could be doing significant long-term damage to your body.

The scientific community has yet to reach a consensus on the severity of exposure to radio frequency energy emitted from cell phones, but a new set of guidelines from the California Department of Public Health suggests that high use could impact human health. If you use your cell phone constantly, you should decrease your exposure.

Kaiser Permanente Provides $600,000 to Help People Impacted by Recent Fires in Southern California

PASADENA, Calif.Kaiser Permanente, the nation’s largest integrated health system, today announced a $ 600,000 contribution to provide immediate support for relief and recovery efforts in communities impacted by the Southern California wildfires, from Santa Barbara to San Diego.

Kaiser Permanente is giving $ 350,000 to the United Way of Ventura County Thomas Fire Disaster Relief Fund. The organization will also provide $ 250,000 to the American Red Cross for immediate disaster relief. The funds will be used to provide food, shelter and comfort to victims of the fires throughout the impacted counties.

“We are saddened by the devastation these firestorms are causing,” said Julie Miller-Phipps, president, Kaiser Permanente in Southern California. “It is particularly heartbreaking that so many people have lost their homes just before the holidays. It is vital that we offer our Kaiser Permanente members, their families and the communities we serve the support they need during this critical time.”

“We want our friends and neighbors to know that we stand united with them now more than ever and are grateful for the support from Kaiser Permanente,” said Eric Harrison, president and chief executive officer, United Way of Ventura County. “As a result, we have reset our Thomas Fire Fund Goal to $ 2.5 million by the end of 2017 and will deploy these funds to those who have experienced devastation and heartache beyond measure.”

Gail McGovern, president and chief executive officer of the American Red Cross, expressed gratitude for the donation, stating, “We are so grateful for the generous support of Kaiser Permanente to the American Red Cross as we work to provide food and shelter to people affected by the fires. We truly appreciate their meaningful support of our humanitarian mission.”

Kaiser Permanente has contributed financial resources to relief and recovery efforts following several major natural disasters this year. For instance, the health care organization donated $ 2.75 million in support of Northern California following the devastating fires in October. Kaiser Permanente also donated to the American Red Cross and Mental Health America of Greater Houston for hurricane relief following Hurricane Harvey.

The wine was pale garnet, with notes of smoke and blackberry giving way to a lingering, slightly tart, finish. One sip sent my head spinning.

First Fire Death Confirmed in Southern California

A 70-year-old woman was killed fleeing Southern California’s raging wildfires this week, authorities confirmed late Friday. The woman, identified as Virginia Pesola, was found at a crash site along an evacuation route in Ventura County on Wednesday night. The medical examiner on Friday said Pesola died of “blunt force injuries with terminal smoke inhalation and thermal injuries.” Pesola’s death is the first caused by a spate of wildfires that consumed 160,000 acres of land and forced out tens of thousands of residents. Fire officials said they’d made “progress” containing the flames by Friday, but weather forecasters warned that strong Santa Ana winds could reignite fires this weekend.

California Braces for ‘Explosive Fire Growth’ With New Winds

Firefighters struggling to contain a spate of wildfires ravaging Southern California are bracing for high winds expected Thursday that forecasters say are a “recipe for explosive fire growth.” With hundreds of homes destroyed and tens of thousands forced to flee in Ventura County, authorities said some progress had been made Wednesday but fire crews are racing against the clock to prevent an inferno when the Santa Ana winds pick up on Thursday. State fire chief Ken Pimlott warned residents that there would be “no ability to fight fire in these kinds of winds.” “At the end of the day, we need everyone in the public to listen and pay attention. This is not ‘watch the news and go about your day.’ This is pay attention minute-by-minute,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times. Fire officials said the priority now is tackling flames to keep the blaze from reaching the Ojai Valley. Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state emergency over the raging fires, which have left about 90,000 acres of land from Santa Paula to the Pacific Ocean completely scorched.

California gunman who killed 4, wounded 10 was out on bail

RANCHO TEHAMA RESERVE, Calif. (AP) — The gunman behind a rampage in Northern California was out on bail charged with stabbing a neighbor, others had complained about him firing hundreds of rounds from his house, and he had been the subject of a domestic violence call the day before the attack.

California Shooting Spree Stemmed From Neighborhood Dispute

Police in Northern California said the gunman who killed four people and wounded 10 others Tuesday had an ongoing dispute with a woman who lived in his neighborhood. That woman, who filed a restraining order against him earlier this year, was one of the first to be killed in the rampage. The Associated Press reports that the gunman—who was identified by multiple news outlets as Kevin Neal—had stabbed the neighbor during a dispute in January. Neal’s mother told the news agency that she had paid the bond to have him released from jail. Neal reportedly told his mother the day before the attack, “I’m on a cliff and there’s nowhere to go.” Police say they responded to another “domestic violence” incident involving him on Monday. “This was a bizarre, murderous rampage (to) get even with a neighbor,” said Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston.

California is the first state to officially recognize a third gender

California is the first state to officially recognize a third gender


California is the first state to officially recognize a third gender

Though California is currently dealing with still-raging wildfires, the government made time for gender rights. California Governor Jerry Brown signed the Gender Recognition Act on October 15th, which gives transgender, intersex, and nonbinary people the opportunity to select a third gender option on California state-issued IDs, like driver’s licenses and birth certificates. As Equality California noted, this bill makes California the first U.S. state to not require people to identify as male or female on official documents and is a major milestone for the LGBTQ+ community.

California Senators Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) and Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) authored this landmark bill, SB 179. “It will keep California at the forefront of LGBTQ civil rights,” Atkins said at a news conference when they proposed the bill in January 2017, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Along with having a third option for gender on government IDs, the Gender Recognition Act will make it easier for people to change their gender on existing documents. It will also allow people 18 years old or younger to apply to change their gender on their birth certificates.

While the legal recognition of a third gender in the U.S. is relatively new, Esquire noted that countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, Thailand, and the U.K. have already enacted or have started to consider bills like these.

It’s also important to note that California isn’t the only state to take steps to better represent nonbinary people. (The new California law defines “nonbinary” as an “umbrella term for people with gender identities that fall somewhere outside of the traditional conceptions of strictly either female or male,” according to The Sacramento Bee.) The state of Oregon became the first state to offer a third option for gender on its driver’s licenses. NBC reported that New York and Washington, D.C. also proposed bills that offered a third sex on driver’s licenses and ID cards.

With states like California and Oregon leading the way, there’s hope that the rest of the country will follow in making the U.S. a more inclusive nation for all.

Fires in Northern California Kill At Least 28 People

The fires tearing through Northern California have claimed at least 28 lives, with 14 deaths reported in Sonoma County alone, according to officials.

Sonoma County Sheriff Rob Giordano provided an update on the death toll in his jurisdiction during a press conference Thursday that was livestreamed via Facebook.

“We are moving into a recovery phase,” Giordano said, describing efforts to search for missing persons and, in some cases, recovering their bodies.

Thirty detectives and 10 search and rescue workers are currently handling 900 missing persons reports. Of those, 437 people have been accounted for and are safe. Another 463 people are still missing, although Giordano noted that in many situations it has been a communication issue. Cell service has been a problem in the area, he said.

Another 10 search and rescue workers from another jurisdiction may soon join the effort. Cadaver dogs have also been brought in to help find bodies.

“We’re doing targeted searches,” he said. “Teams of people are going out looking for a very specific person based on a missing person case to a very specific place. That’s how the majority of the recoveries have been handled so far.”

In terms of identification of the deceased, Giordano cautioned that it “is going to be hard.” He continued, “So far in the recoveries we have found bodies that have been almost completely intact and we found bodies that were nothing more than ash and bones. ”

In some cases, authorities have been able to identify the deceased through medical devices.

The fires have destroyed thousands of buildings and have forced people forced to evacuate. Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma counties have been the hardest hit areas. A number of wineries have also burned down.

Updates are being posted to the official Facebook pages of both of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office and Sonoma County, as well as emergency site Nixel.

Were Downed Power Lines Linked to California Wine Country Fires?

When the first reports of multiple fires in California’s Sonoma County poured in Sunday night, emergency dispatchers were at the same time sending out fire crews to investigate downed PG&E power lines and exploding electrical transformers in the area, the East Bay Times reports. Personnel were reportedly sent out to at least 10 locations over a 90-minute period to look into sparking wires and other electrical-system problems. San Francisco-based utility PG&E and others in the state have been in the past found responsible for major destructive wildfires over power-line maintenance issues. The utility released a statement Tuesday night acknowledging the equipment issues over the weekend in Sonoma—reportedly caused by high “hurricane-strength” winds—but noted that any broader questions about maintenance issues causing the area’s wildfires are at this point “highly speculative.” In April, PG&E was fined $ 8.3 million for a power-line maintenance problem that caused the September 2015 Butte Fire in Amador County. State fire officials are still investigating the cause of the Wine Country blazes, which are only 40 percent contained. As of late Tuesday night, the wildfires ravaging the area had killed at least 17 people and destroyed more than 2,000 homes in multiple counties.

Fires in Northern California

Updated 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 9

Evacuation of approximately 130 patients from the Santa Rosa medical center was successfully completed by 6 a.m. Monday due to fires burning in the area. The majority of our patients were transferred to Kaiser Permanente in San Rafael. Patients were also sent to our Kaiser Permanente San Francisco and Oakland medical centers, and other local community hospitals. Our top priority is the safety of our patients, members, staff and our community.

Patients requiring medical support were transported to other facilities by ambulance. Non-critically ill patients were transported via private buses. We want to extend our thanks and appreciation to our dedicated staff who worked tirelessly to ensure all patients were evacuated quickly and to our patients and their families for their cooperation and support.

Our Santa Rosa hospital and Napa medical offices were not damaged, but were closed Monday and scheduled appointments and surgeries were cancelled.

All routine prescheduled procedures and appointments for Tuesday at our Santa Rosa Medical Center, Rohnert Park and Mercury Way medical offices are cancelled. For members needing to be seen, walk-up urgent care will be available in Rohnert Park. In addition, members are encouraged to use video visits and telephone appointments for primary care needs. Members with questions about scheduled appointments should contact the Appointment and Advice Call Center at 1-866-454-8855.

Our pharmacies in Santa Rosa and Napa are currently closed. Members who need a prescription or refill can go to any open Kaiser Permanente pharmacy. There are pharmacies open in San Rafael, Petaluma and Novato. If there is no nearby Kaiser Permanente pharmacy or if other assistance is needed, including redirecting mail order prescriptions, members should call the Kaiser Permanente Pharmacy Call Center at 1-888-218-6245.

Families seeking information about patients who were evacuated from the Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa hospital can call at 855-599-0033. Kaiser Permanente nurses and other staff are encouraged to contact their local staffing centers if they are available to assist.

Kaiser Permanente is making an initial $ 250,000 donation to the American Red Cross to help with the community’s immediate needs. We will continue to evaluate the situation and provide more information as it becomes available.

It’s important to take precautions to stay healthy if you or your family are in an area being impacted by the current fires — especially those with respiratory conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Kaiser Permanente recommends that you:

  • Stay indoors and keep your windows closed (unless instructed otherwise).
  • Use “controller” steroid inhalers (like QVAR) as prescribed.
  • Use “quick relief” inhalers to help with shortness of breath.
  • If you have oxygen, use it if you have difficulty breathing.
  • Turn on your air conditioner to see if it helps, especially if it’s central air. If you have a window A/C unit, make sure the filter is clean.
  • Use fans in each room to help move the air in your house.

Kaiser Permanente and Target to Open 31 More Retail Clinics in Southern California

PASADENA, Calif. — Kaiser Permanente, the nation’s largest integrated health system, and Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) announced they will launch 31 additional Kaiser Permanente-staffed retail clinics in Target stores across Southern California. Through this collaboration, Kaiser Permanente will provide care to its members and Target guests at the in-store clinics, branded “Target Clinic, care provided by Kaiser Permanente.”

The program builds on the two respected brands’ successful existing collaboration, which began in 2014. There are currently four Kaiser Permanente-staffed Target Clinics located in the following areas: San Diego (Mission Valley), Vista, Fontana and West Fullerton. Four additional Kaiser Permanente-staffed Target Clinics in San Diego (Chula Vista, Santee), Orange County (North Irvine) and Riverside (Hemet) will open this November, with additional clinics set to open in existing Southern California stores over the next three years.

“This is the evolution of a successful relationship that is focused on quality and convenience,” said Julie Miller-Phipps, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals, Inc., for the Southern California Region. “We are proud to expand our existing efforts to bring affordable, quality health care to even more Target guests throughout Southern California.”

“Kaiser Permanente’s integrated care delivery system, which prioritizes prevention, and Target’s focus on an exceptional guest experience mean Southern Californians can expect to receive high-quality, patient-centered health care in convenient, trusted and familiar settings, wherever they live and work,” said Ed Ellison, MD, executive medical director and chairman of the board, Southern California Permanente Medical Group.

“From annual flu shots to care for a child’s sore throat, guests in our four pilot stores have told us they appreciate having access to high-quality health care services from Kaiser Permanente during their Target run. Expanding the number of Target Clinic locations makes these offerings available to even more Southern California guests, and gives Kaiser Permanente members additional reasons to choose Target’s easy, convenient and inspiring shopping experience,” said Steve Lafferty, senior director, Wellness, Target.

Kaiser Permanente will staff the new clinics with licensed nurse practitioners and licensed vocational nurses, and will have physicians available via telemedicine consultations. The clinics will offer Target guests a broad array of services, including: pediatric care; women’s health care; monitoring and care for chronic conditions including diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure; basic dermatology services; and treatment for minor illnesses including strep throat, vaccinations, sinus pain, earaches, asthma, and cold and flu.

MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic of CVS Health, has been providing administrative services to Kaiser Permanente in support of its four existing Target Clinics. MinuteClinic will provide the same services to the new Target Clinics when they open to patients. After a clinic visit, eligible Kaiser Permanente members will be able to receive a one-time fill at the CVS Pharmacy co-located to the Target Clinic.

“CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic are pleased to play a role in this unique health care relationship,” said Sharon Vitti, senior vice president and executive director of MinuteClinic. “Both CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic have a proven track record of delivering top-notch care to patients and we look forward to serving the pharmacy needs of Southern California residents through our presence in Target stores.”

The Target Clinics will accept cash or credit, as well as a broad range of health insurance plans.

If You Live in California You’ll Soon be Able to Sue Your Bank

The bill, passed by the Democratic-controlled legislature, now requires the approval of Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, who is expected to sign it into law shortly.

Under the bill, judges could override contract clauses that require customers to settle disputes through arbitration in cases where a bank commits fraud using customers’ personal information.

Mandatory arbitration clauses, which have become standard practice since a 2011 U.S. Supreme Court decision, make consumers agree not to sue in the future as a condition of purchasing products or services.

Clauses inserted into Wells Fargo


wfc



account-opening agreements have blocked customers from taking the third-largest U.S. bank to court over last year’s disclosures that it opened millions of accounts without customer knowledge. Regulators fined the bank $ 190 million for the alleged deceit, of which $ 5 million was to be paid to customers.

The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released a rule this summer ending forced arbitration clauses for banks and credit cards, but the rule is not retroactive and does not apply to Wells Fargo customers in the phantom accounts scandal, even those recently revealed as alleged victims.

Excellence in Stroke Care: Kaiser Permanente Hospitals in Southern California Receive Quality Achievement Awards

PASADENA, Calif. — Kaiser Permanente Southern California hospitals received quality achievement awards from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association. The recognition demonstrates Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to and success in implementing high standards of stroke care by ensuring that its stroke patients receive treatment that meets nationally accepted, evidence-based standards and recommendations — which can improve the quality of care for stroke patients, and may also reduce disability and save lives.

The Kaiser Permanente hospitals listed all received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Quality Achievement Awards and a place on the Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll.

“Kaiser Permanente hospitals in Southern California have the expertise, the dedication and the infrastructure to provide outstanding care for complex stroke conditions,” said Navdeep Singh Sangha, MD, who serves as Kaiser Permanente Southern California’s regional telestroke lead and is co-assistant chief of neurology at Los Angeles Medical Center. “These awards from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association confirm Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to using the latest science to treat our stroke patients.”

“The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association recognize the Kaiser Permanente hospitals for their commitment to stroke care,” said Paul Heidenreich, MD, MS, national chairman of the Get With The Guidelines Steering Committee and professor of Medicine at Stanford University. “Research has shown there are benefits to patients who are treated at hospitals that have adopted the Get With The Guidelines program.”

Get With The Guidelines® puts the expertise of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association to work for hospitals nationwide, helping hospital care teams ensure the care provided to patients is aligned with the latest research-based guidelines. Developed with the goal to save lives and improve recovery time, Get With The Guidelines® has impacted more than 3 million patients since 2003.

According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds, someone dies of a stroke every four minutes, and nearly 800,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.

Dr. Brent Fogel: Santa Monica, California, January 18, 2015

2015-03-03-APBDKINDSIGHTDRBRENTFOGELSANTAMONICAJAN182015sized.jpg

It was one or a combination of Fate, Destiny, Kismet, Serendipity, Chance, Luck or other that brought Dr. Fogel and I together. I had been searching for a diagnosis for my worsening mobility, balance and other bodily function impairment for some five years, at multiple facilities and with many practitioners both in and beyond Los Angeles, to no definitive avail, when my case came to the attention of Dr. Fogel, at UCLA. One thing that impressed me early on was Dr. Fogel’s reporting. Doctors write lengthy reports after seeing patients, as a key part of the patient’s medical record. I had seen many reports by doctors through the course of my quest and, while all well intentioned and laced with professional jargon, most if not all reports I had read up to this time contained inaccuracies and/or omissions. But Dr. Fogel’s reporting was on another level. It was one hundred percent accurate in detail and fully complete, like no other I had seen. This in itself won me over and gave me full confidence in him, something that I hadn’t known up till that point with other specialists. I really believed that Dr. Fogel could give me diagnosis. When there is confidence, all parties are empowered. In late 2010, after over seven years of testing and hoping, Dr. Fogel gave me a definitive diagnosis of Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease, a rare, untreatable, inexorably worsening genetic condition that affects mainly Ashkenazi Jews (Eastern European heritage). Dr. Fogel got me into a clinical trial at Baylor in Dallas and, while this didn’t pan out, it led me to connect with Susan Coddon, Dr. Jeffrey Levenson and other members of the Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease Research Foundation (www.apbdrf.org), a tight knit group of fellow sufferers and carers, mostly around my age, who together wield and radiate a powerful dynamic of experience, wisdom, concern and pro-activism. One initiative is that I now dedicate my photography exhibits to raising awareness and support for APBD. Here, I’ve invited Dr. Fogel to speak at the opening reception of my current exhibit in Santa Monica and, not surprisingly, he is a raconteur of the highest order, giving attendees a comprehendible understanding of APBD. Whether by Fate, Chance or other, I am eternally grateful to Dr. Fogel for my diagnosis and all else resulting from our connection, and for illuminating my path.

Excerpt: The Sodium Reactor Experiment was a pioneering nuclear power plant built by Atomics International at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory, nearby Simi Valley, California. The reactor operated from 1957 to 1964. On July 12, 1957 the Sodium Reactor Experiment became the first nuclear reactor in the United States to produce electrical power for a commercial power grid by powering the nearby city of Moorpark. In July 1959, the reactor suffered a serious incident in which the reactor core was damaged causing the controlled release of radioactive gas to the atmosphere. The reactor was repaired and restarted in September 1960. In February 1964, the Sodium Reactor Experiment was operated for the last time. Removal of the deactivated reactor was completed in 1981. Recent competing technical analysis of the 1959 incident has produced contrasting conclusions regarding the types and quantities of radioactive materials released. Members of the neighboring communities have expressed concerns about the possible impacts to health and environment from the incident. In August 2009, the Department of Energy hosted a community…
