    “We Can’t Trust the Unvaccinated”:
    Dr. Leana Wen on Vaccine Mandates & How to Stop the Delta Variant

    “The highly contagious Delta variant is causing a rise in cases around the world, from the Olympics in Tokyo to Russia, Indonesia and the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued new guidelines suggesting that people resume wearing masks indoors, but state and local officials are not legally required to implement CDC guidelines. Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and former Baltimore health commissioner, says she supports the new CDC guidelines because an “honor system” of trusting people to wear masks unless they were vaccinated clearly did not work. “We know that we can’t trust the unvaccinated,” she says. She also discusses global vaccine inequity, how to overcome vaccine hesitancy, and her new memoir, “Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health.”

      believe it or not.”

    As Florida’s COVID crisis worsens, Biden admin sends ventilators

    “DeSantis doesn’t want to “hear a blip about COVID” from Biden, but he does want to receive life-saving media equipment from the Biden administration.”

    “The federal government has sent hundreds of ventilators and other equipment this week to help Florida
    respond to a record number of Covid hospitalizations. The devices, which came from the federal government’s Strategic National Stockpile, included 200 ventilators and 100 smaller breathing devices and related supplies, said an official of the Department of Health and Human Services.” (NBC)

    “The report added that the equipment request came from “local and state health officials.”

    As usual, cannot post a quote on here for love nor money about children hospitalized with Covid.
    On Monday there was a report in one facility in Louisiana of a dozen children hospitalized, six were under 2 yeaars of age. Three were on mechanical ventilators, and one was one month old.

    This is my position too

    Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Mr Biden said the US was keeping the commitments it had made to Afghanistan, such as providing close air support, paying military salaries and supplying Afghan forces with food and equipment.

    But he said: “They’ve got to fight for themselves.” Mr Biden urged Afghanistan’s leaders to unite and “fight for their nation”.

    President BIden:

    “And I think that people should understand, seeing little kids — I mean, four, five, six years old — in hospitals, on ventilators, and some of them passing — not many, but some of them passing — “

    President Biden:
    “And I find it interesting that some of the very people who are saying that, who hold government positions, are people who are threatening that if a schoolteacher asks a student if they’ve been vaccinated, or if a principal says that, “Everyone in my school should wear a mask,” or the Schoolboard votes for it, that governor will nullify that. That governor has the authority to say, “You can’t do that.” I find that totally counterintuitive and, quite frankly, disingenuous.

    Remarks by President Biden
    Before a Briefing from the FEMA Administrator, Homeland Security, and COVID-⁠19 Response Teams

    “Let me be clear: If you’re in a state where hurricanes often strike — like Florida or the Gulf Coast or into Texas — a vital part of preparing for hurricane season is to get vaccinated now. Everything is more complicated if you’re not vaccinated and a hurricane or a natural disaster hits.

    If you wind up having to evacuate, if you wind up having to stay in a shelter,
    you don’t want to add COVID-19 to the list of dangers that you’re going to be confronting.”

    Coco Austin unites moms deemed ‘perverted’ for breastfeeding kids over 5.
    —————

    Why stop at 5? Carry on until they are away in college, until they are too far for the milk.

    • August 11, 2021 at 2:58 pm

      A woman’s body will make breastmilk for as long as she nurses.
      If a newborn has been confused by a bottle nipple she can be taught to nurse on the breast. Also if needed for any reason, mom can be taught how to re-lactate.

      Many women are sadly dis-informed from the get-go. And are not encouraged to nurse their newborn right away on colostrum (already there before your milk comes in). It is full of stuff that has lifelong immunity
      and human taurine which uniquely feeds the rapidly growing brain. My daughter was allergic to almost everything and it was scary. So don’t ask me how long i nursed her if the topic is bothering you!!
      She danced a very athletic style of ballet in her teens at a top ballet company – and on to University.
      —-So my profound gratitude for breastmilk knows no bounds. Fave topic!

    • August 11, 2021 at 3:10 pm

      “Historically, until relatively recently, “extended” – or to better describe it “full-term” – breastfeeding was the cultural norm. According to anthropologist Kathy Dettwyler, in societies where children are allowed to nurse as long as they want, self-weaning usually happens between 3 and 4 years of age.
      Her research on breastfeeding duration in non-human primates (based on a number of variables such as length of gestation, weight gain, age at sexual maturity and dental eruption)
      places the natural duration of breastfeeding in modern humans between 2.5 and 7 years.”

        I am all for breastfeeding and did just that. The age limit is what makes me ponder. My pre-K and K children being breastfed in the evening? It’s a stretch (for me).

        • August 11, 2021 at 3:40 pm

          4 years on this earth is no time at all if you think about it! If they are in school they most likely have weaned, though they might nurse at bedtime which is nice for Mom and child, until a complete self-weaning.
