Rep. Mark Amodei and other NV/CA based officials – “Lake Tahoe Needs an Upgrade.”

Lake Tahoe may be getting a facelift…after decades of being nearly loved to death…

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mark Amodei (NV-02) today announced the introduction of the Lake Tahoe Restoration Reauthorization Act, along with original cosponsors: Reps. Dina Titus (NV-01), Susie Lee (NV-03), Steven Horsford (NV-04), and John Garamendi (CA-03). The legislation reauthorizes $415 million in funding through September 30, 2034 to reduce the threat of wildfire, improve water clarity, combat invasive species, and restore the environment in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

“Anyone who has experienced Lake Tahoe’s exceptional beauty understands the importance of preserving this national treasure for future generations,” said Rep. Mark Amodei.  “In order to do so, we must continue making Lake Tahoe a priority by responsibly investing in management solutions that will preserve its unique environment, our local economy, and the community’s quality of life. Our legislation upholds this federal commitment by continuing to focus on the key priorities that will prevent imminent threats and combat invasive species in the region. I’m proud to once again team up with the entire Nevada Delegation and my colleagues from California on this important bipartisan initiative and look forward to continuing to work together to protect the Tahoe Basin.” (more…)

Attorney General’s nationwide demand reigning in Facebook’s “Children’s Content”

Atty Gen. Aaron Ford
Facebook can be toxic to young children.

Nevada Attorney General Ford and Other AG’s Urge Facebook to Abandon Launch of “Instagram Kids”

Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford has joined a coalition of 44 other attorney generals urging Facebook to abandon its plans to launch a version of Instagram for children under the age of 13. In their letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the AG’s cite serious concerns about the safety and well-being of children and the harm social media poses to young people.

The attorney generals also explain how social media can be detrimental to children for many reasons, and that Facebook has historically failed to protect the welfare of children on its platforms.  “While social media can be fun and entertaining, it can also pose many risks, especially to our youth who do not recognize those risks or understand how to protect themselves,” said AG Ford“Parents, my office is looking out for you. Have conversations with your children about posting personal information on social media. Talk about the risks of associating with people they don’t know. While we continue to protect our children and youth, it’s critical for you to continue to have these conversations with your family.”

In their letter, the attorney generals nation-wide express concerns over Facebook’s proposal, including: 

  • Research that social media can be harmful to the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children;  
  • Rapidly worsening concerns about cyberbullying on Instagram; use of the platform by predators to target children;  
     
  • Facebook’s checkered record in protecting the welfare of children on its platforms; and  
     
  • Children’s lack of ability to navigate the complexities of what they encounter online, including advertising, inappropriate content and relationships with strangers.  At a Congressional hearing in March, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg dismissed the idea that social media is harmful to children, despite strong data and research that reveals a link between young people’s use of social media and an increase in mental distress – including self-injurious behavior, and suicide. Instagram has been frequently flagged for increasing children’s thoughts of suicide, depression, and body image concerns. Additionally, the attorney generals argue that young children are not equipped to handle the many challenges that come with having an Instagram account, including that they often lack a developed understanding of privacy. There is also a risk that predators may exploit children online and cloak their identities using the anonymity of the Internet. One report found an increase of 200 percent in recorded instances in the use of Instagram to target and abuse children over a six-month period in 2018. In 2020 alone, Facebook and Instagram reported 20 million child sexual abuse images. Cyberbullying is also a major concern. A 2017 survey found that 42% of young Instagram users had experienced cyber-bullying on the platform – the highest percentage of any platform measured.  As children spend more time online during the COVID-19 pandemic these issues have become a bigger, more menacing problem. The attorney generals also cast doubt on Facebook’s ability to protect children from their proposed Instagram platform and comply with relevant privacy laws such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). They point out that the company has a record of failing to protect the safety and privacy of children. For instance, Facebook’s Messenger Kids app contained a glitch that allowed children to circumvent restrictions and join group chats with strangers.  In addition to Nevada, other attorney generals participating in this letter include: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Northern Mariana Islands, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Drag racing on Fairview near Edmonds did some damage…

Drag race northbound on Fairview didn’t quite make the curve at Edmonds…taking out a lot of backyard fencing.  Notice the dark skid-marks on the pavement and the slam up against the curb.

One car went out of control, ripped out two backyard fences, barely missing a power pole.

Two vehicles speeding north on Fairview entered the curve at Edmonds Monday evening and one of them lost control. One car went in to a long skid, smacked up against the curb, took out a long stretch of back yard fencing on one home, and then continued on to demolish part of the the next door neighbor’s fence as well. But somehow the spinning black vehicle barely missed a power pole, coming to rest aimed in the opposite direction of travel.

Neither of the young men were hurt. The vehicle they were racing left the scene and was no where to be found. No word on whether the two young men in the black vehicle knew who they were racing against. To be continued.

Fourth of July is on the horizon….

Nevada Rural Counties RSVP is ready-to-get-ready to pump-up their 28th Annual 4th of July Celebration at Mills Park, Carson City.  The seasonal fun begins July 1st and runs through the evening of July 4th, a rather well known date on the USA’s calendar.  RSVP brings a carnival, craft fair, and of course a fireworks show on the evening of the 4th of July.

With the return of summer and the Mills Park celebration, RSVP is ready to welcome a great community turnout.  But a word to the wise – Covid-19 is still with us.  Even if you’re vaccinated wear a facemask just to be safe.  because not everyone is vaccinated yet but we’re getting there.

Carson-Tahoe RMC Achieves High Nationwide Ranking

Carson Tahoe Health joins the three percent of hospitals in the nation to have received Pathway to Excellence designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The Pathway designation is a global credential that highlights an organization’s commitment to creating a healthy work environment where nurses feel empowered and valued.

CTH nurses — from the urgent cares and medical group clinics to the Regional Medical Center and surgery rooms — are an integral part of the healthcare team. And at Carson Tahoe, they have a voice in the policy and practice decisions that influence their work.

“Pathway nurses are engaged, resulting in higher job satisfaction, reduced turnover, improved safety, and better patient outcomes,” says Joanne Miller, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Vice President & Chief Nursing Officer at CTH. “I am proud of each and every one of our staff who worked through a grueling pandemic, a major medical records transition, and a Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ) survey, to still put a priority on their commitment to excellence and on one another’s well-being.

CTH nurses worked collaboratively with many other members of the organization to advance these areas:
— Safety
— Quality
— Shared decision-making
— Leadership
— Well-being
— Professional development

As a Pathway organization, Carson Tahoe leads the effort to enhance quality of care, patient and nursing safety, and the future of healthcare delivery,” says Allen Fink, DO, MHA, CPE, FACEP, Vice President & Chief Medical Officer at CTH.

This news comes as we honor the first day of National Nurses’ Week (May 6 – 12, 2021). The journey to this award came as a result of countless hours of all CTH staff working as a team.

“Although a necessary part of healthcare, it’s not all about the surveys and awards – it’s about taking great care of people,” says Alan Garrett, CPA, CGMA, MBA, President & Chief Executive Officer at CTH. “That’s what we do at Carson Tahoe … putting our community, which is comprised of our patients, guests, staff, and physicians at the forefront of all we do.”

Nevada A.G. demands equal care for pregnant black women….

Attorney General Ford Urges Congress to Pass the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford joined a coalition of 22 attorneys general urging Congress to pass the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021. The legislation is aimed at combating the high Black maternal mortality rate and increasing access to maternal and prenatal care.  As Mother’s Day approaches, the coalition is highlighting the need to advance health equity across the country for all racial and ethnic minorities – especially Black mothers. The coalition issued a letter today to Congressional leadership calling on Congress to pass House Resolution (H.R.) 959, the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021. This legislative package addresses the social determinants of the Black maternal mortality crisis, including improving access to housing, transportation, and nutrition services.

“Receiving adequate healthcare treatment for African-American mothers is an issue that has been discussed for years with little action,” said AG Ford. “Just like receiving the COVID-19 vaccines, there is a lack of equity, fairness, and equality in the medical world and it is still very prevalent today. For generations, black women, were at one point used as subjects in medical experiments, tests, even case students for today’s leading perinatal care. Yet, U.S. black mothers are more likely to suffer life-threatening complications during pregnancy, give birth prematurely, die in childbirth and lose their babies more than any other race. They need our support and protection. I believe the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021 will finally bring some awareness and solution to this inequity,” AG Ford Continued.

The Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021 is co-sponsored by Rep. Lauren Underwood (IL-14) and other members of the Black Maternal Health Caucus.

The Momnibus is intended to help decrease maternal mortality among Black mothers, who die at a rate three to four times higher than white mothers. Similarly, Native American, Asian-American and Pacific Islander, and Hispanic women are more likely to face maternal mortality than white women and non-Hispanic women. As the White House announced on April 13, “quality, equitable healthcare is a right, not a privilege.” However, many risk factors play into increased rates of maternal mortality, including preexisting conditions, socioeconomic status, lack of health insurance, and implicit bias and discrimination in health care.

The Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021 addresses maternal mortality by ensuring women have access to equitable care at all stages of pregnancy. The legislative package is comprised of 12 bills that address the crisis through a multifaceted approach of increased grant funding, enhanced data collection and improving community programs. By specifically addressing the social determinants of health, the package aims to reduce maternal mortality by providing funding to community-based maternal health organizations; diversifying the perinatal workforce; supporting mothers and improving maternal health care for individuals with mental health conditions, substance abuse disorders, and those who are incarcerated; enhancing postpartum care; and promoting maternal health innovation such as telehealth, maternal vaccinations, and payment options from pregnancy through the postpartum period.

If passed, the policy changes would benefit individual state programs by increasing funding, furthering access to community supports and enhancing education services for mothers. More broadly, the legislation would assist state attorneys general in working to protect residents against race-based discrimination within the health care system.

In addition to Nevada, other states joining the act include: Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
