The Anatomy of Fear Focus on CongressFrom the office of Rep. Val Demings Rep. Val Demings (FL-10) toured True Health and held a roundtable discussion with patients, health care professionals, and industry experts. The discussion focused on the devastating consequences of overturning the Affordable Care Act, and the work of House Democrats to address the soaring costs of prescription drugs. Rep. Demings is a cosponsor of the Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions & Making Health Care More Affordable Act.Rep. Val DemingsFollowing this discussion, Rep. Demings released a new report on diabetes medication prices in Florida’s 10th District. The report was commissioned by Rep. Demings and prepared by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The report is available here.The report shows that because Medicare is not allowed to negotiate drug prices, the costs to Medicare are nearly four times higher than in the United Kingdom, five times higher than in Australia, and three times higher than in Canada. For uninsured patients, the costs can be as much as 21 times higher.Said Rep. Demings, “Dr. King said that of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane. Let’s make this clear: access to health care is a matter of life and death. It is inexcusable that American families are dying for the sake of corporate profit. I am working in Congress to bring down costs for all Americans. Families should never have to worry that one illness or accident will mean bankruptcy or a lifetime without coverage.“This new report shows that like so many other medications, insulin in Central Florida is vastly more expensive than it is in other countries. Americans should not have to pay five to twenty times more for their medication than people in Australia or Canada. I support efforts to allow Medicare to negotiate prices, like the VA, and to bring more generics to market.“The Trump Administration is dead wrong in its lawsuit to strip healthcare from millions of Americans by ending the Affordable Care Act, which will cause immediate harm to older Americans, and increase out-of-pocket costs for families. Protections for patients with pre-existing conditions are not negotiable.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

Aerion Park will form a new global headquarters and integrated campus for research, design, build and maintenance of the company’s supersonic aircraft. The new project involves a multi-year $300 million investment that is expected to generate at least 675 jobs in Florida by 2026. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear center_img Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter “The Space Coast has become a hub for the aviation and aerospace industry, and my administration continues to make it a priority to expand this high-wage and important business sector,” said Governor DeSantis. “We are thrilled that Aerion has selected Melbourne for its new global headquarters and look forward to the company’s success.”“We are building the next generation of high-speed transportation networks that will revolutionize global mobility without leaving a carbon footprint on our world,” said Tom Vice, Aerion Chairman, President & CEO. “Our AS2 business jet – the world’s first privately built supersonic aircraft – is the first stage in that exciting endeavor. Having evaluated a number of potential locations for our new home, we are excited to partner with Florida and the Melbourne community to create a sustainable supersonic future.”Over the past decade, Florida’s Space Coast executed a successful strategy to diversify its economy to drive high-wage job creation. Brevard County now leads Florida in manufacturing job growth and is increasingly home to headquarters for some of the most innovative companies in aerospace. The announcement of Aerion Supersonic’s integrated campus and long-term investment in Melbourne is a major win for a community looking to emerge from the economic consequences of the COVID-19 crisis.“Today’s announcement is great news for Brevard County,” said Jamal Sowell, Florida Secretary of Commerce and EFI president & CEO. “Florida’s strong talent pipeline and low tax business climate continue to make it top of mind for businesses looking to relocate. We look forward to Aerion’s success as they start a new chapter in the Sunshine State.”“This is a truly transformational project for Florida that changes the game both for high speed air transportation as well for advanced aerospace manufacturing in the state,” said Frank DiBello, President and CEO of Space Florida. “The decision to locate manufacturing of this technologically advanced supersonic flight vehicle here in Florida is a testament to the growing strength and global recognition of the importance of Florida as a world-leading aerospace state. Space Florida is pleased to have provided financing, structure and development assistance to this project.”“Brevard County is home to the pioneers of space exploration and now the pioneers of sustainable supersonic transportation.” said Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast President and CEO Lynda Weatherman. “Aerion Park raises the profile of the Space Coast as the premier site for the most innovative aerospace companies in the world and is an example of what can be accomplished, even in the most challenging times, when the EDC and its state and local partners work together.”“Governor DeSantis, Space Florida, the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast, and private industry are actively taking steps to help our community recover from a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic,” said Chair of the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners Bryan A. Lober, Esq. “One of the earliest such steps is the introduction of an estimated 675 high-wage jobs to Brevard County in crafting the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet, which will help solidify not only our economy, but also our reputation as the world’s preeminent location for the aerospace industry.”“We are incredibly honored and thrilled to bring this news to our community at a time when it’s needed the most,” said Greg Donovan, A.A.E., executive director at Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB). “We are proud to be the location of the future where Aerion will innovate, create and introduce new technologies and products to the aviation industry worldwide.”“We are overjoyed to be a partner in fostering a new era of aviation by assisting in Aerion’s decision to locate within the City of Melbourne. Aerion’s business venture to manufacture supersonic business jets in Melbourne reinforces the Space Coast’s national reputation as an aerospace industry leader,” said the Mayor of the City of Melbourne Kathy Meehan. “The City of Melbourne is also proud to collaborate with Governor DeSantis, Space Florida, Orlando-Melbourne International Airport, and the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast to bring in $300 million of new investment and more than 600 high paying jobs to our community over the next six years.”“Dating back to the space race of the 1960s, FPL has a long and proud track record of helping power the innovation and ingenuity synonymous with Florida’s Space Coast,” said FPL President and CEO Eric Silagy. “Even as we all navigate the economic uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Aerion’s decision to build its headquarters in Melbourne serves as a reassuring reminder that better days are ahead for our state. FPL remains steadfastly committed to helping re-start Florida’s $1 trillion economy and move it forward once it’s safe to do so.”Aerion will break ground on the new campus later this year ahead of manufacturing of the AS2 business jet commencing in 2023. In addition to the 675 new jobs Aerion will bring to the state, Aerion Park is expected to attract key aerospace suppliers within the supersonic technology ecosystem to bring business to Florida, creating additional roles for scientists, designers, engineers and aircraft builders.

This is one of the most successful appeals it has run and is the highest total it has ever raised for a food crisis.The DEC does not normally make comparisons between appeals “because we take the view that all giving is generous and should be welcomed unreservedly.” However, it has made an exception in this case because of the scale of the public’s generosity. The East Africa Appeal’s total so far is the third highest total of any appeal in the charity’s 45 year history, and the largest for any African appeal.Only the 2004 Tsunami Earthquake Appeal (£392 million) and the 2010 Haiti Earthquake Appeal (£107 million) raised more.The DEC East Africa Crisis Appeal will remain open until the end of the year. It has already enabled the DEC member agencies and their partners to provide aid to nine million people in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia.www.dec.org.uk  63 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 17 October 2011 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Amazon to open non-Whole Foods grocery chain

Posted On May 18 2021 by

first_imgablokhin/iStock(SEATTLE) — Amazon, which bought Whole Foods in 2017 for about $13.7 billion, is planning to open a separate grocery chain, beginning in Los Angeles, according to The Wall Street Journal.Sources familiar with the project told The Journal the first new store could open at the end of 2019 and that talks are underway to add locations in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle, where the company is based. Amazon, which at the end of January reported a quarterly profit in excess of $3 billion as revenue surged 20 percent to almost $72.4 billion, also is considering acquiring regional grocery chains.The new grocery stores are expected to offer a variety of products at lower price points than many of those carried by Whole Foods, which, according to the company’s website, has 497 locations — 476 in the U.S., 14 in Canada, seven in the U.K. — and employs 89,000 people.Amazon recently abandoned plans to open a massive office in New York City that, the company said, would have created tens of thousands of jobs.Politicians and business leaders this week composed an open letter to CEO Jeff Bezos begging him to reconsider.When trading concluded on Friday, Amazon’s market cap was more than $821.1 billion.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ANNE ARUNDEL, Maryland) — Emergency responders have found the bodies of two missing men after a helicopter crashed Saturday off the coast of Maryland, according to the Maryland Natural Resources Police.The bodies were recovered from the wreckage in the Chesapeake Bay Saturday evening. The weather was very foggy and rainy in the area, though an investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.“The wreckage was found at about 6 p.m. in about 55 feet of water,” Maryland Natural Resources Police Capt. Brian Albert said in a statement just before midnight.Monumental Helicopters, a helicopter tour agency in Anne Arundel, Maryland, told Washington affiliate WJLA that it owned the copter that crashed.The Coast Guard had said earlier in the day they were searching for Charles Knight, 38, of Mount Airy, and Matt Clark, 36, of Pasadena.Maryland Coast Guard watchstanders received a report that a two-seat helicopter with two men aboard crashed about a mile south of Kent Island Saturday afternoon.The Coast Guard and Federal Aviation Administration, along with state and local partners, assisted in the search with a dive team and boats.The weather conditions were too poor for authorities to launch a search-and-rescue helicopter, Maryland State Police said.The cause of the crash is unclear at this time.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
