Midland wasn’t far behind, ranking No. 2 with 6.19.Sutliff & Stout, the law firm who published the study, compiled the list by pulling all data for alcohol involved crashes during the last five years for every Texas city with a population more than 50,000, averaging an average of fatalities during the last five years, dividing it by total population, with Odessa’s population estimated at 115,000, and dividing the number by 100,000.The Odessa Police Department stated in a news release Wednesday they are concerned about public safety on the roadways and have ramped up their DWI enforcement to try and lessen these numbers.The release added the best enforcement relied upon the citizens’ own safety and discipline and those visiting, and the number could be lowered by being smart after drinking an alcoholic beverage.OPD advised in the news release to always have a sober driver when going out and to not allow an intoxicated person to operate a motor vehicle. The release also stated OPD is available to assist should a person refuse to take a safe, sober ride home, and asked the public to call 9-1-1 to report intoxicated driver incidents.The release detailed that should anyone be at an establishment that appears to be over-serving customers, to report it immediately to the police.DWI ARRESTS MADE BY OPD DURING THE PAST FIVE YEARS:2013: 4622014: 5832015: 6642016: 6672017: 6662018: 187Average per year: 608.4The number of arrests in 2018 is ranging from Jan. 1 to March 31, the release detailed. OPD also reported the average number of crashes during the past five years as 86.2, and the average number of fatal crashes involving alcohol during the past five years at 6.4.Odessa District of TxDOT Spokesperson Gene Powell said TxDOT declined to comment on the study itself, but said they spend millions of dollars every year trying to combat drunken driving with various campaigns.“We encourage people to not drink and drive every chance we get,” Powell said. “Any drunk driving fatality is preventable and we hope people make the right choice behind the wheel.”See the study HERE.

Marianne Williamson runs for Congress in LA

Posted on by

first_imgSpiritual teacher, author and lecturer Marianne Williamson is running for Congress in California’s 33rd District.Campaign trail · Congressional Candidate Marianne Williamson speaks and answers questions to potential voters while campaigning. – Photo courtesy of Ileana WachtelWilliamson is running as an independent, a stance she believes is necessary to change the national political dialogue. She faces the incumbent democratic candidate Henry Waxman who has represented the general district for more than thirty years.Politics is a new field for Williamson. Though some might believe there is a gap between the spiritual and political worlds, Williamson disagrees and has based her campaign on the same principles.“I think the fact that people do see politics as separate from our lives is part of the problem in America,” Williamson said. “The fact that politics has become a spectator sport and that there’s only a certain group that is deemed ‘political types’ is dangerous.”Williamson began her career as a lecturer. The best-selling author is taking ideals of self-transformation and using them to tackle issues such as food corruption due to high-fructose corn syrup and processed foods, climate change and the United States’ reliance on fossil fuels.She also hopes to close the gap between the “haves” and the “have-nots.”Williamson believes that the tools individuals use to change their lives can be applied to larger groups — such as the United States. Her campaign hopes to bring attention to a dialogue that is rarely heard in full.In 1997, Williamson published The Healing of America, which discussed a holistic perspective on the United States’ political system. She encourages citizens to “reclaim their spiritual voices” in all aspects of their lives, especially politics.Similar principles outlined in the book are the ones upon which Williamson said she will challenge Waxman. Williamson plans to decline all funds provided by special interest groups and instead focus on the issues of the people.“To me, politics should be a container for a deep national conversation,” Williamson said. “Whereas at present, politics is the purveyor of the most shallow conversation possible, and looking to the political status quo to change this seems absurd given that the political status quo brought us to where we are.”David Moreno, a sophomore majoring in international relations and political science, sees the spiritual aspect of politics to be a competitive edge for Williamson.“To be honest and successful in politics requires individuals to shut out the interest groups and listen to what’s right by the people — and themselves. I think it’s unique to say it aloud, but not a new idea.”Williamson hopes to promise graduates the ability to create their own jobs, careers and fields.Referencing Oregon as an example of an educational system that provides free higher education, she is working to get funding out of politics and into educational opportunities.“Higher education is becoming more and more a luxury of a small group who can afford it. This is as un-American -— as undemocratic — as you can get,” she said.Students on campus recognized the power of scholarship and the need for a university education.“Although it may seem more as a luxury due to college sports, location and connections, higher education is still expected for students and will continue to be that in the future,” said Ashley Warner, a senior majoring in communication.Kevin Keer, a sophomore majoring in computer science and physics, disagreed.“Many universities such as USC have programs that help underprivileged students achieve the goal of reaching college. Cost is normally a deterrent from certain schools but sometimes it attracts other students to some other schools.”Williamson provided the following advice for students seeking success.“I think that if [the government] does right by [students] that when you get out of college, you can create your own six-million dollar company if you want to. [the United States should] give you the tools and then watch you run.”last_img read more

COVID-19 Update: A Look at Long-Term Care Facilities

Posted on by

first_imgAs of Wednesday, there have been a total of 162,068 positive COVID-19 cases statewide, an increase of 652 overnight. Of that number, there have been 11,880 deaths. Over a seven-day average, with cumulative data from April 11 to June 2, there have been 5,232 lab confirmed deaths at long-term care facilities from the virus. Hospitals statewide have reported a total of 2,250 hospitalizations from April 4 to June 2. Increasing transparency and accountability is another major highlight, calling for new procedures to regulate and monitor facility owners, improving oversight and increasing penalties for those who fail to comply. Lastly, it calls for an overall more resilient and higher quality system. The goal is to require facilities to maintain infection control preventionists to better support current surveillance efforts. There are four core recommendations outlined in the report, the first being to strengthen the emergency response capacity. It suggests establishing a new long-term care emergency operations center, which would be a “central point of command” specifically for public health response for these facilities, Murphy said. It also calls for a forward-looking COVID-19 testing plan and stronger resident and family communications. That’s why weeks ago Gov. Phil Murphy called for a team of experts to look at ways to improve the quality, safety and resiliency of the long-term care system. On Wednesday, the team released its report during the governor’s daily press conference. NEW JERSEY – Residents and staff members of long-term care facilities have been hit the hardest during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We continue to trend in the right direction on all the vital indicators,” said Murphy. “The past two weeks have been filled with many more green lights than red ones.” The team was led by 30-year health policy expert Cindy Mann and former deputy commissioner at the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services Carol Raphael. Their recommendations outline how facilities can move forward and reopen for new residents and visitors, and how they can best address mitigation and protection, said Murphy. The team conducted over 50 interviews to put the report together. That’s why this week the governor announced reopening dates for outdoor dining and nonessential in-person retail shopping, effective June 15. Restaurants and bars will have to abide by numerous safety and sanitary protocols when they do open, Murphy said. Salons and barber shops will reopen June 22, with gyms and health clubs expected to follow shortly after.center_img Next, the report suggests stabilizing facilities and bolstering their workforce, Murphy said. That means ensuring staff members have access to paid sick leave, higher wages, minimum staff ratios for direct care and medical loss ratios to ensure payments are used for patient care “and not for lining owners’ pockets,” he added. “That’s a common sense call given that approximately one-third of the New Jersey nursing homes surveyed in 2017 were cited for an infection prevention and control deficiency,” said Murphy. But new hospitalizations and patients in the hospital, ICUs and on ventilators continue to trend downward since the peak of the virus mid-April. “One of the greatest challenges we have faced throughout this pandemic has been the spread of COVID-19 in our long-term care facilities,” said Murphy. “This virus has had a tremendous impact and taken a significant toll on both residents and staff members. New Jersey is far from alone in this grim reality.” “COVID-19 exacerbated longstanding, underlying systemic issues affecting nursing home care in New Jersey,” Murphy said, reading from the report.

10 months agoBayern Munich chiefs Kovac, Salihamidzic concerned after Liverpool draw

Posted on by

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Bayern Munich chiefs Kovac, Salihamidzic concerned after Liverpool drawby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich coach Niko Kovac believes getting Liverpool in the Champions League round of 16 is the toughest draw they could land.The Bundesliga champions will travel to Anfield for the first leg on February 19 with the second leg at the Allianz Arena on March 13.Kovac said, “Liverpool got to the final last year, they’re top of the Premier League and one of the favourites for the Champions League.“We’re FC Bayern München, though, and I’m sure Liverpool know they’ve got to come here to Munich for the second leg. The chances are 50-50. We’ll see what happens. I’m very confident we’ll get through.”Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: “They’re the team of the hour, they’re the league leaders in England.“They play good football, they’re very physical and they’re full of energy.“You need two good days. They were in the final last year, they’re a top side, it’s a tough one but these are the challenges that you look forward to as a player and that you have to overcome in your career.”Winger Arjen Robben was also gushing in his praise of Jurgen Klopp’s side.“It’s an epic match. Liverpool are a super team who have gone through a great development,” Robben told Bayern’s website.“They have big players, a lot of pace and creativity in attack and they’re a real unit. The atmosphere will be phenomenal. It’s just a great draw. It’s a dream for every player to be involved in a game like this.”However, Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer claimed that the Reds can still be “vulnerable” defensively having shipped seven goals in the group stage.“They’re having a very good season and we know they were in the Champions League final last year,” Neuer said.“They certainly won’t be delighted with the draw, either. They can counter quickly and they’re dangerous in front of goal, but they’re also vulnerable, as we’ve seen, and they’ll be up against a good Bayern attack.” last_img read more
