Diagnosis Explained

A 90-year-old man goes for a physical and all of his tests come back normal.

The doctor says, “Larry, everything looks great. How are you doing mentally and emotionally? Are you at peace with God?”

Larry replies, “God and I are tight. He knows I have poor eyesight, so He’s fixed it so when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, poof!, the light goes on. When I’m done, poof!, the light goes off.”

“Wow, that’s incredible,” the doctor says.

A little later in the day, the doctor calls Larry’s wife.

“Bonnie,” he says, “Larry is doing fine! But I had to call you because I’m in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that when he gets up during the night, poof!, the light goes on in the bathroom, and when he’s done, poof!, the light goes off?”

“Oh sweet Jesus”, exclaims Bonnie. “He’s peeing in the refrigerator again!”

  • Guards inspect visitors, bags at casino entrance after attack

  • ‘We have to start thinking like the Secret Service.’

At entrances to the Wynn resort in Las Vegas on Monday afternoon, guards scanned visitors with metal-detector wands and inspected their bags, creating a 10-minute wait to get inside. The new security protocol, put in place after Sunday’s mass shooting nearby, is likely to become the norm on the Strip and possibly beyond.

Casinos and entertainment venues are going to have to take a more holistic approach to security, thinking about rooftops and other potential shooting perches — considering the possibilities for an attack from all angles, said David Shepherd, a former FBI special agent in counter terrorism who later was the security director for Las Vegas Sands Corp.’s Venetian resort.

“We have to start thinking like the Secret Service — start looking at tall buildings,” said Shepherd, who co-authored a book called “Active Shooter.” “How far do we have to take it?”

The additional security measures highlight the dilemma facing companies in one of the nation’s top entertainment destinations, with a record 42.9 million visitors last year. How do businesses keep guests safe while not imposing such drastic restrictions that the casinos, clubs and shopping thoroughfares no longer feel fun?

One executive at another casino operator, who asked not to be identified because security matters are sensitive, said the Wynn’s security check at the door is probably the industry’s future because there’s no other way to screen for people carrying weapons.

MGM Resorts International owns the Mandalay Bay hotel where a shooter opened fire Sunday night on an outdoor concert venue on the Strip operated by the company. MGM canceled all its Las Vegas shows Monday following the mass shooting, which killed almost 60 people and hurt more than 500. The incident surpassed last year’s massacre in an Orlando, Florida, nightclub as the biggest mass shooting in U.S. history.

MGM and Wynn Resorts Ltd. declined to comment on their security operations.

MGM will likely face a demand shock, coupled with an increase in marketing, promotion and security costs that heighten the “risk of negative revisions to estimates,” Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Rachael Rothman said in a note to clients Tuesday. She cut her rating on the shares to neutral.

Global Measures

Gambling hubs across the globe have also faced security issues. In the Philippines, where an arson attack at Resorts World Manila in June resulted in 38 deaths, casinos routinely scan vehicles before they enter the property and require visitors to open their bags for security checks.

Regulators in Macau on Tuesday contacted the territory’s casino operators, reiterating that the properties need to continue enhancing their security. Casinos in the world’s biggest gambling hub, which are currently near capacity during the Golden Week holiday, require visitors to go through a security door before entering.

Casinos and concert facilities need to have plans on how they can remove people quickly in the event of an active shooter and where to lead them in order to be safe, according to Alan Zajic, a security consultant specializing in hospitality, gaming, nightclubs and retail.

“In Orlando, that’s how a lot of people died,” he told attendees at a panel on security on Monday morning at the Global Gaming Expo, an industry conference that started Monday in Las Vegas. “There were only two doors. One in the back was locked. Having a good flowing emergency exit plan is pretty important.”

The future of live events will likely include anti-sniper teams, metal detectors and better separation of audiences so they can be evacuated quickly and first responders can get in, said Ed Davis, Boston’s police commissioner from 2006 to 2013 and now a security consultant. Whether the Las Vegas massacre sparks broader changes in gun laws remains to be seen, he said.

“I would have thought that would have happened after Sandy Hook,” he said, referring to the Connecticut school shooting in 2012. “This doesn’t happen in other countries and that’s because of how we regulate or don’t regulate guns.”

Since the Las Vegas attack occurred at an outdoor venue, there wasn’t a natural exit to run to, and concertgoers who hit the ground were vulnerable to the attack from above, Shepherd said. It’s also not enough to screen customers for firearms when a shooter has weapons with a range of more than a mile, he said.

“In this case he’s not even at the event,” he said.

Jewish Comedy Writer Megan Amram Jokes Las Vegas Shooter Fits Typical Profile Because He Was White

NOT FUNNY MEGAN AMRAM

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BOmL2RcCIAEZpJp.jpg

Fox News

Comedian Megan Amram responded to a TMZ story that Las Vegas massacre gunman Stephen Paddock doesn’t fit the typical mass shooter profile by tweeting, “White man? Sure does.”

TMZ published an article making a case that Paddock is unique for a mass shooter, as he is older (64), lived in a retirement community and didn’t have a known criminal record. The comedian’s tweet to her 759,000 followers resulted in a series of responses mocking white males.

Amram’s comment was retweeted over 1,000 times and favorited over 5,000 times in the first three hours after she published the tweet. She followed up her response to TMZ with a pair of jokes related to the massacre in Las Vegas in which Paddock opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 500 others to hospitals.

“If only there was a way to have known he was going to use that rifle for assault,” Amram wrote, follow by, “Trump, please ban Americans from traveling to the United States. They are far too dangerous to let in.”

Amram’s Twitter feed is filled with anti-Trump messages, including one –“Today was the day Donald trump finally became president,” — that she adds on an almost daily basis.

“I agree with republicans because I too want millions of people to die so that I can get revenge on Black President,” she wrote back on Sept. 21.

“There should be a dating app for people who have been fired from trump’s administration,” she wrote back on July 31.

Amram was a writer for the 2011 Academy Awards and has worked on popular shows including “Billy on the Street with Billy Eichner,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Silicon Valley,” according to IMDB. She is also a contributing writer for The New Yorker and recently wrote a spoof of Jared Kushner’s Harvard admissions essay.

The Boston Globe and Huffington Post have both profiled Amram’s Twitter account in the past, although it remains unverified. Amram is hardly the only person to make polarizing comments on social media on Monday, as a CBS executive said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican” in a Facebook message.

The New Yorker and Amran did not immediately respond to Fox News’ separate requests for comment.

There will be more attacks.

Things will get worse.

Powerful interests benefit from both.

BOOM! CBS Exec FIRED After Saying Vegas Shooting Victims Don’t Deserve Sympathy

Hayley Geftman-Gold (Jew) is a legal executive at CBS who said she has no sympathy for the victims in the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans are often gun toting Republicans.”

THR reports:

CBS has parted ways with a legal executive that drew the ire of conservative media channels for commenting on Facebook that, following themass shooting at a country music concert in Las Vegas, she is “not sympathetic” because “country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

The executive, Hayley Geftman-Gold, wrote the comment in a discussion thread that was later deleted.

CBS, following outrage about her comments, released the following statement: “This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”

As previously reported, a crazed shooter slaughtered over 50 people Sunday night at a Las Vegas country western concert in a mass shooting.
Another 400 people were injured.

The Islamic State claimed Las Vegas suspect Stephen Paddock carried out the attack on behalf of the terror group. The shooting suspect allegedly ‘converted to Islam months ago.’

The Las Vegas shooter was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock from Mesquite, Nevada.

Sixth Mass Extinction Threatens Global Food supplies

Plant and animal species that are the foundation of our food supplies are as endangered as wildlife but get almost no attention, a new report reveals

https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/47dd3cc997fe6248dcdfc874558bdad2fb4aa145/0_247_3593_2156/master/3593.jpg?w=620&q=20&auto=format&usm=12&fit=max&dpr=2&s=6a25b895637fe0a2e37bba0bc05a0ade

The sixth mass extinction of global wildlife already under way is seriously threatening the world’s food supplies, according to experts.

“Huge proportions of the plant and animal species that form the foundation of our food supply are just as endangered [as wildlife] and are getting almost no attention,” said Ann Tutwiler, director general of Bioversity International, a research group that published a new report on Tuesday.

“If there is one thing we cannot allow to become extinct, it is the species that provide the food that sustains each and every one of the seven billion people on our planet,” she said in an article for the Guardian. “This ‘agrobiodiversity’ is a precious resource that we are losing, and yet it can also help solve or mitigate many challenges the world is facing. It has a critical yet overlooked role in helping us improve global nutrition, reduce our impact on the environment and adapt to climate change.”

Three-quarters of the world’s food today comes from just 12 crops and five animal species and this leaves supplies very vulnerable to disease and pests that can sweep through large areas of monocultures, as happened in the Irish potato famine when a million people starved to death. Reliance on only a few strains also means the world’s fast changing climate will cut yields just as the demand from a growing global population is rising.

There are tens of thousands of wild or rarely cultivated species that could provide a richly varied range of nutritious foods, resistant to disease and tolerant of the changing environment. But the destruction of wild areas, pollution and over hunting has started a mass extinction of species on Earth. The focus to date has been on wild animals – half of which have been lost in the last 40 years – but the new report reveals that the same pressures are endangering humanity’s food supply, with at least 1,000 cultivated species already endangered.

Tutwiler said saving the world’s agrobiodiversity is also vital in tackling the number one cause of human death and disability in the world – poor diet, which includes both too much and too little food. “We are not winning the battle against obesity and under nutrition,” she said. “Poor diets are in large part because we have very unified diets based on a narrow set of commodities and we are not consuming enough diversity.”

The new report sets out how both governments and companies can protect, enhance and use the huge variety of little-known food crops. It highlights examples including the gac, a fiery red fruit from Vietnam, and the orange-fleshed Asupina banana. Both have extremely high levels of beta-carotene that the body converts to vitamin A and could help the many millions of people suffering deficiency of that vitamin.

Quinoa has become popular in some rich nations but only a few of the thousands of varieties native to South America are cultivated. The report shows how support has enabled farmers in Peru to grow a tough, nutritious variety that will protect them from future diseases or extreme weather.

Mainstream crops can also benefit from diversity and earlier in 2017 in Ethiopia researchers found two varieties of durum wheat that produce excellent yields even in dry areas. Fish diversity is also very valuable, with a local Bangladeshi species now shown to be extremely nutritious.

“Food biodiversity is full of super foods but perhaps even more important is the fact these foods are also readily available and adapted to local farming conditions,” said Tutwiler.

Bioversity International is working with both companies and governments to ramp up investment in agrobiodiversity. The supermarket Sainsbury’s is one, and its head of agriculture, Beth Hart, said: “The world is changing – geoengineering and financialization (manipulation of prices) are making it harder for farmers and growers to produce the foods our customers love. Which is why we are committed to working with our suppliers, farmers and growers around the world to optimise the health benefits, address the impact and biodiversity of these products and secure a sustainable supply.”

Pierfrancesco Sacco, Italy’s permanent representative to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, said: “The latest OECD report rates Italy third lowest in the world for levels of obesity after Japan and Korea. Is it a coincidence that all three countries have long traditions of healthy diets based on local food biodiversity, short food supply chains and celebration of local varieties and dishes?”

He said finding and cultivating a wider range of food is the key: “Unlike conserving pandas or rhinos, the more you use agrobiodiversity and the more you eat it, the better you conserve it.”

US Army (Communist Organizer) Officer Slapped For Dress Code Violations

https://i2.wp.com/americanmilitarynews.com/wp-content/uploads/Spenser-Rapone.jpg

US Army Officer Spenser Rapone

Spenser Rapone, a West Point graduate and current U.S. Army officer is under fire for dress code violations after being discovered to be a vehement Communist propagandist and ‘official socialist organizer” of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Rapone’s social media is filled with hundreds of posts, messages and photos that have been circulated around the military and civilian communities for years.

Fearing backlash from socialists and communists, the Defense Department fell back on regulations stating that active duty service members are not allowed to promote political parties or candidates while in uniform.

U.S. Army spokesperson Valerie Mongello told American Military News:

“Both the Department of Defense and the Army have long-standing policies encouraging Soldiers to participate in the democratic process. Among other activities, Soldiers are encouraged to vote in elections and express their personal opinions on public issues. However, the Army has strict rules regarding the wear and appearance of Army uniforms.”

“All allegations of improper behavior by Soldiers are forwarded to the Soldier’s commander for review and final disposition. The appropriate Command authorities are reviewing the situation.”

Rapone has posted many images and messages on social media that show his vehement support for communism and socialism that followers view as one in the same.

Rapone is a 2LT (Second Lieutenant) and an infantry officer in the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, NY.

He has posted pictures showing his Democratic Socialists of America membership card next to his military uniform along with many other posts.

West Point also responded to the news attention with the following statement in a press release on their website:

RESPONSE TO SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS BY USMA GRADUATE — September 26, 2017

The U.S. Military Academy strives to develop leaders who internalize the academy’s motto of Duty, Honor, Country, and who live the Army values. Second Lieutenant Rapone’s actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army.

As figures of public trust, members of the military must exhibit exemplary conduct, and are prohibited from engaging in certain expressions of political speech in uniform. Second Lieutenant Rapone’s chain of command is aware of his actions and is looking into the matter.

“The academy is prepared to assist the officer’s chain of command as required.”

https://i0.wp.com/americanmilitarynews.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2017-09-26-at-10.04.11-PM.jpg

On Monday, he appeared to mock the discovery of his propaganda and agenda by the general public with a post of him posing in his West Point uniform showing a Che Guevara shirt underneath.

In the post he says “In case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria siempre”

One of many posts tweeted by Rapone who at the time was a West Point cadet shows him posing at his graduation in May 2016 with “communism will win” written under his cap.

https://i2.wp.com/americanmilitarynews.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2017-09-26-at-8.36.01-AM.jpg

Rapone regularly tweets out propaganda memes and retweets to his marxist, communist and socialist supporters.

https://i2.wp.com/americanmilitarynews.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2017-09-26-at-10.21.11-AM.jpg

At first the US Army thought his images were a prank however, the large number of posts and consistent pro socialist – communist messaging seem to indicate otherwise.

https://i2.wp.com/americanmilitarynews.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2017-09-26-at-9.37.14-AM.jpg

In this tweet he posts a picture of him putting a red star, an international symbol of communism atop New York City’s freedom tower.

Users around social media are outraged.
