Pelosi Meets with AOC Behind Closed Doors

first_imgHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi is playing down reports of a rift with New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.She had a private half-hour meeting with the freshman Democrat this morning and was asked if the two buried the hatchet.Pelosi said, “There never was any hatchet.” She called the meeting very positive and said Ocasio-Cortez is very gracious.If Pelosi joins with AOC, and the freshman democrat “kisses the ring” this is the furthest left the party has ever been which President Donald Trump believes helps his chances to win reelection in 2020. Pelosi held a press conference after the meeting.Speaker Pelosi responds to Mueller’s warning on Russian interference: “The president calls this a hoax and Sen. McConnell refuses to act.””This is about patriotism for our country…and yet the Republicans still continue to say no need to protect that.” https://t.co/vRPssxdSSO pic.twitter.com/sLs5li8FVw— ABC News (@ABC) July 26, 2019last_img

Restoration work to begin on Swan Park this August

first_imgRestoration work is to begin on the much-loved Swan Park in Buncrana this August, it has been confirmed. The community park was destroyed in the Inishowen flooding of August 2017.Since then, community campaigners have worked to source money for repair works. An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was presented with an open letter signed by nine local groups calling for funds during his visit last September.Now, Donegal County Council has confirmed to Donegal Daily that the €1.7M works will begin later this summer.Inishowen Councillor Jack Murray said the news was a huge triumph for the people of Buncrana and surrounding areas.“We have had the money secured since last November and at last work will begin on the park later this summer, which is fantastic news for the community in Buncrana. “People were delighted when the funding was announced, but they were frustrated with the delay and thankfully now we have overcome every hurdle and this much-loved local amenity will be restored to its former glory,” he added.“You cannot overstate how beloved Swan Park is to the local community and everybody who uses it.“It was a big issue for tourism when it was first destroyed and I would often receive calls from around Inishowen and even Derry on its closure.So, it will be great for tourism again because it is one of the biggest attractions in Buncrana.”Restoration work to begin on Swan Park this August was last modified: July 12th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Arthur the miracle Pygmy goat

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A healthy and normal birth is just the first in step raising livestock. Anyone who has ever had livestock born on their property knows that the fun has just started but the work is not over.The eight Pygmy goat kids born in my barn in late February were a tremendous blessing. Eight was the largest number of kids I have ever had born from just three does. I have enjoyed caring for the kids and playing with them, but it has not all been fun.With an increase in numbers, of course comes an increase in the chance for things to go wrong. The first sign of trouble was baby goat with scours. I assumed poor Arthur just had an upset tummy so I treated him with products I had on hand designed to rectify issues like his.After two days of treatment, Arthur wasn’t any better so I stopped by my vet’s office and purchased another treatment designed to prevent scours. The scours went away, but a few days later, I found Arthur lying in the barn with a fever of 105.5 degrees Farenheit.Because I found Arthur in this state on a Sunday, I treated him myself with products that my vet had sold me to keep on hand for such occasions. By the next day, Arthur’s fever was gone, but he had developed another startling symptom — seizures. A trip to the vet with Arthur in tow was definitely in order.Before Arthur’s scheduled appointment, a previously undetected abscess blew out of the top of Arthur’s head. Both the vet and myself were relieved to have a visible source for some Arthur’s symptoms.My vet prescribed additional treatments for Arthur based on a diagnosis of the abscess and a guess that his seizures might have been caused by a Vitamin B deficiency.Two days later, Arthur’s fever was still gone, his appetite was better but his seizures were more frequent and severe. I called my vet back with the sad news that I thought Arthur was probably going to need to put out of his misery. The seizures were pretty constant and violent at that point.My vet wanted to try one more treatment and boy am I glad I took his advice. After another course of antibiotics and steroids, Arthur is symptom free of seizures and infection.Our best guess is that the abscess was the result of a rare infection from his disbudding (dehorning) procedure and that perhaps, because baby goats’ skulls are not yet fused, the infection got into his brain and caused the seizures.Whatever the cause, I’m happy to report that Arthur is back to normal. I’m thankful that I had access to excellent veterinary care to help me through this very rare side affect — infection — of the very necessary procedure of disbudding. The even more rare side affect of the infection — seizures — could not have been overcome without the advice and care given by my vet.Thank goodness for large animal veterinarians that are willing to take the time and go the extra step to help their customers and patients. Be kind to your local veterinarians. You never know when they just might help you save a life.last_img read more

Food for the winter

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Whether the weather is cold or mild this winter, it is a grim fact that there will be hungry Ohioans in the months ahead. This continues to be a terrible reality for far too many so close to home. Each year 186 million pounds of food are distributed by Ohio foodbanks to those in need around the state.“Hunger is a pervasive reality in the Buckeye state that impacts more than one in six Ohioans,” said Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director, Ohio Association of Foodbanks.Because foodbanks, including the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, can leverage funds effectively, monetary donations are more useful than actual food donations. In fact, for every $1 donated to Mid-Ohio Foodbank, four meals can be provided to our hungry neighbors.With that in mind, Ohio’s Country Journal and Ohio Ag Net are working to raise 10,000 meals at this year’s Farm Science Review. For each $4 donated, a FSR attendee will get to add a scaled-down bushel of corn to a container with the goal of donating funds for 10,000 meals for $2,500. Stop by our building to say “Hello” and help us to feed central Ohio’s hungry residents this winter.last_img read more
