November 21, 2019. [24:43] Sacha Baron Cohen is the well-deserved recipient of ADL’s International Leadership Award, which goes to exceptional individuals who combine professional success with a profound personal commitment to community involvement and to crossing borders and barriers with a message of diversity and equal opportunity.  Over 100 years ago Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant.” Through his alter egos, many of whom represent anti-Semites, racists and neo-Nazis, Baron Cohen shines a piercing light on people’s ignorance and biases. https://youtu.be/ymaWq5yZIYM

"Sacha Baron Cohen has denounced tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google as “the greatest propaganda machine in history” and culpable for a surge in “murderous attacks on religious and ethnic minorities”.  Baron Cohen was speaking on Thursday at Never Is Now, the Anti-Defamation League’s summit on antisemitism and hate in New York, where he was presented with the organisation’s international leadership award. He said that “hate crimes are surging, as are murderous attacks on religious and ethnic minorities” and that “all this hate and violence is being facilitated by a handful of internet companies that amount to the greatest propaganda machine in history”  Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Mark Thompson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OodpUmYk3MY

RECALLED


(As of November 4, 2019)

Potential Listeria Contamination of Mann Brand Products Sold in U.S. and Canada

Click for the notice and full list of recalled products or go to https://mannpackingproductlist11-2019.us/




Salinas, CA. – November 3, 2019 – Mann Packing Co., Inc. (Mann) announced today the voluntary recall of a series of vegetable products sold to select retailers in the United States and Canada. The voluntary recall is a response to a notification by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency of a potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. To date, public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.
Mann Packing is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Mann Packing will continue to work closely with the authorities to investigate the issue.


 The recalled products have “Best If Used By” date of October 11, 2019 to November 16, 2019. Please see below for a full list of affected products as well as product images available.



For any inquiries or comments, all consumers are welcome to call the 24 hour customer service line at 1-844-927-0707 or email Mann Packing Co., Inc. at consumers@mannpacking.com

(Foodborne Bacterial Illness) - Overview, Symptoms, Causes, Treatment, and Prevention. Learn more: https://healthery.com/health/listeria...  Listeria is an infection caused by a bacterium called Listeria monocytogenes. The bacterium is found in animal feces, soil, and water. It is a food-borne illness that produces diarrhea, muscle aches, and fever. In severe infections, it affects the brain and causes meningitis, headaches, convulsions and can even lead to death.   It affects people that are immunocompromised, the elderly and pregnant women and their unborn children. Healthy people do not suffer from listeria infection but it can be fatal to unborn babies and neonates. There is a better prognosis if the disease is diagnosed early and the person infected began on antibiotics.

LISTERIOSIS



Signs and symptoms | The disease primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, and newborns. Rarely, people without these risk factors can also be affected. A person with listeriosis usually has fever and muscle aches, often preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. Almost everyone who is diagnosed with listeriosis has invasive infection (meaning that the bacteria spread from their intestines to their blood stream or other body sites). Disease may occur as much as two months after eating contaminated food. The symptoms vary with the infected person: High-risk people other than pregnant women: Symptoms can include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. Pregnant women: Pregnant women typically experience only a mild, flu-like illness. However, infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn. Previously healthy people: People who were previously healthy but were exposed to a very large dose of Listeria can develop a non-invasive illness (meaning that the bacteria have not spread into their blood stream or other body sites). Symptoms can include diarrhea and fever. If an animal has eaten food contaminated with Listeria and does not have any symptoms, most experts believe that no tests or treatment are needed, even for people at high risk for listeriosis. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Listeriosis#Signs_and_symptoms




Cause | Listeria monocytogenes is ubiquitous in the environment. The main route of acquisition of Listeria is through the ingestion of contaminated food products. Listeria has been isolated from raw meat, dairy products, vegetables, fruit and seafood. Soft cheeses, unpasteurized milk and unpasteurised pâté are potential dangers; however, some outbreaks involving post-pasteurized milk have been reported. Rarely listeriosis may present as cutaneous listeriosis. This infection occurs after direct exposure to L. monocytogenes by intact skin and is largely confined to veterinarians who are handling diseased animals, most often after a listerial abortion. It can be more common in patients with hemochromatosis. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Listeriosis#Cause




Bacteremia | should be treated for 2 weeks, meningitis for 3 weeks, and brain abscess for at least 6 weeks. Ampicillin generally is considered antibiotic of choice; gentamicin is added frequently for its synergistic effects. Overall mortality rate is 20–30%; of all pregnancy-related cases, 22% resulted in fetal loss or neonatal death, but mothers usually survive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Listeriosis#Treatment




Prevention | The main means of prevention is through the promotion of safe handling, cooking and consumption of food. This includes washing raw vegetables and cooking raw food thoroughly, as well as reheating leftover or ready-to-eat foods like hot dogs until steaming hot. Another aspect of prevention is advising high-risk groups such as pregnant women and immunocompromised patients to avoid unpasteurized pâtés and foods such as soft cheeses like feta, Brie, Camembert cheese, and bleu. Cream cheeses, yogurt, and cottage cheese are considered safe. In the United Kingdom, advice along these lines from the Chief Medical Officer posted in maternity clinics led to a sharp decline in cases of listeriosis in pregnancy in the late 1980s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Listeriosis#Prevention

Our Voice Magazine

a magazine created for and by the LGBT+ community. its purpose is to give us the recognition we deserve.



In current times, LGBT+ issues are more talked about, and we're starting to have more representation in the media, but it's still not enough. There are still places where we are very much in danger for who we are and who we love. Many of us are artists, writers, actors and more, but we still don't have the spotlight. The goal of Our Voice is to change that.
Our Voice is focused on OUR community. It isn't reporters and interviewers writing stories to fit their agenda. It's about us, for us, and by us. It's a collection of creative writing, true stories, art and photography from the people in our own community and it's free. It's about time we got the recognition we deserve.
While the founder is based in the United States, Our Voice Magazine is for everyone. While there are guidelines, submissions are open for anyone  around the globe. We need unity. We need to be heard.

[0:08] As much as I wish I could, I currently can't afford to donate to the Anton Yelchin Foundation, so instead, I made this in memory of him for what would have been his 30th birthday. https://www.facebook.com/roryjroche/videos/vl.259913924918559/1598718326927886/?type=1
  2. "Muninn." This here is a tidbit. It's still a WIP of a much larger project, but I was happy enough with the step that I slapped on a quick background so I could share it with you. If you like what you see and you want one of your own, remember, commissions are open!  This is Muninn, one of Odin's ravens.  The strangest thing happened, too. My keyboard switched to Icelandic without prompting. https://www.facebook.com/roryjroche/photos/a.1996285004031059/2427050954287793/?type=3&theater

  1. "ADL International Leadership Award Presented to Sacha Baron Cohen at Never Is Now 2019." Ani-Defamation League, Youtube. November 21, 2019. [24:43] Sacha Baron Cohen is the well-deserved recipient of ADL’s International Leadership Award, which goes to exceptional individuals who combine professional success with a profound personal commitment to community involvement and to crossing borders and barriers with a message of diversity and equal opportunity.  Over 100 years ago Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant.” Through his alter egos, many of whom represent anti-Semites, racists and neo-Nazis, Baron Cohen shines a piercing light on people’s ignorance and biases. https://youtu.be/ymaWq5yZIYM
  2. "Sacha Baron Cohen RIPS Facebook." The Young Turks, Youtube. November 22, 2019. [16:15]  Sacha Baron Cohen denounced tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, and Mark Thompson, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. "Sacha Baron Cohen has denounced tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google as “the greatest propaganda machine in history” and culpable for a surge in “murderous attacks on religious and ethnic minorities”.  Baron Cohen was speaking on Thursday at Never Is Now, the Anti-Defamation League’s summit on antisemitism and hate in New York, where he was presented with the organisation’s international leadership award. He said that “hate crimes are surging, as are murderous attacks on religious and ethnic minorities” and that “all this hate and violence is being facilitated by a handful of internet companies that amount to the greatest propaganda machine in history”  Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Mark Thompson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OodpUmYk3MY

  1. "Help Us Survive." Dee Langone Bonney, Rory J. Roche. Retrieved November 26, 2019. My name is Dee, I’m 60 years old, and in failing health. I used to enjoy dancing, and now I can barely walk. I have a talented son, who is also disabled. He has so many dreams and goals and I want to see him flourish. I hate having to ask for help, but our lives depend on it. It’s just the two of us now. My husband died in 2007, and we got by with some financial help from my parents and my life’s savings. We lost my mom to negligence in a nursing home in 2011, and my dad to kidney cancer in 2016. We have no family to help us financially, or look after my son should I need a hospital. Our current situation weighs heavily on us and causes more anxiety and stress than we can handle. I can’t sleep, and my son can barely keep meals down. We have only one hope for both of us to survive. We need a new environment; one where my son can thrive, and I won’t have to worry if I need to stay at a hospital. One where it isn’t a struggle for me to get in and out of my home. We need it soon. Before my health requires hospitalization. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-us-surivive?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
