A month ago, we all were worried about the scare of Ebola. One victim, Dr. Craig Spencer, has been declared free of the disease, and was discharged from Bellevue Hospital in New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio and his First Lady hugged Spencer in front of the media and a crowded audience. In another story, the family of Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan, who died at Dallas Hospital, reached a financial settlement with the hospital as reported. The negligence case has been closed, and business will be as usual.
East Orange General Hospital Kevin Slavin took the helm at the hospital when it had a host of financial problems and the complaints about the lack of quality service was the talk of the neighborhood. Ten years ago, the rumors swirled that EOGH would be closing down any day. Kevin Slavin took charge, and assessed that the community and hospital staff has a huge gap. The administration and the staff were working just for the sake of working.
The Newark school system has a lot of faulty procedures, as per many Newark parents. The person in-charge of the system, Superintendent Cami Anderson, has stopped answering the media. I understand that. The main goal is to prepare things for the needs of the students.
Michael Phelps was suspended for 6 months from swimming competitions. He was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and violating the USA swimming organization's code of conduct. The suspension was announced a day after he entered a six-week treatment program. He will not be eligible to compete at the April 6, 2015 USA Swimming competition and will not participate in August 2015 in Russia and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Many things have happened from the last editorial to this one. This includes the failure of the Secret Service, letting a man jump the fence of the White House. He then entered the front door near the East Wing, where the President and his family lives. Thank God that this person only had a knife, not a bomb, and was apprehended. Still, he reached near the executive mansion. We spend hundreds of millions on the security of the President, and this is a huge breach of security.
