Journalist, counselor, painter, and US 2012 Presidential candidate Joe Schriner of Cleveland, Ohio took some time to discuss his campaign with Wikinews in an interview.

Schriner previously ran for president in 2000, 2004, and 2008, but failed to gain much traction in the races. He announced his candidacy for the 2012 race immediately following the 2008 election. Schriner refers to himself as the “Average Joe” candidate, and advocates a pro-life and pro-environmentalist platform. He has been the subject of numerous newspaper articles, and has published public policy papers exploring solutions to American issues.

Wikinews reporter William Saturn? talks with Schriner and discusses his campaign.

House approves Senate amended economic stimulus package

Posted by VZWk94v8 on March 23, 2019

Friday, February 8, 2008

The United States House of Representatives has passed the bipartisan US$152 billion economic stimulus package that gives one-time rebates to United States citizens, US$600 for individuals or US$1,200 for couples plus US$300 for each child. US$300 checks would be sent to people on low-income including retirees on Social Security which was not included in the original bill backed by President George W. Bush. The plan would begin to decrease rebates for citizens with taxable incomes of US$75,000 for individuals and US$150,000 for couples. The checks would go out to more than a 130 million Americans according to Treasury secretary Henry Paulson.

The House overwhelmingly approved the more broad Senate amended bill which included the low-income portion mentioned above along with provisions that would keep illegal aliens from receiving a rebate check. Despite some opposition from some Congressmen, such as John B. T. Campbell III of California’s 48th congressional district, the plan passed overwhelmingly 380–34.

Campbell called the plan “wealth redistribution” and noted it did not have safeguards to prevent illegals from receiving these rebates and also claimed that stimulus plan would increase the deficit more and noted the cause of the looming recession was because of “credit problems.”

The United States Senate voted hours earlier on the bill which passed in the Senate, 81–16. after having to shed some incentives included by Senate Democrats which caused the bill to fail. Some of the incentives that were left out of the plan in a compromise to gain Republican support were demands for benefits for long-term unemployed workers and stipulation that would allow low-income citizens to pay off heating bills and let home builders pay off losses off the current year against previous tax years.

President Bush approved of the package, noting in a statement, “This plan is robust, broad-based, timely, and it will be effective, this bill will help to stimulate consumer spending and accelerate needed business investment.”

Triple limb-reattachment fails – boy loses foot

Triple limb-reattachment fails – boy loses foot

Posted by VZWk94v8 on March 19, 2019

Tuesday, April 5, 2005Terry Vo, the 10-year old Australian boy who had two hands and a foot reattached by surgeons after losing them in an accident, has had to have the foot re-amputated. He will be given a prosthetic foot in its place.

The operation to re-attach three limbs was thought to have been a first – but was ultimately unsuccessful, with the foot having died inside, and receiving insufficient blood supply following the surgery to reattach it.

“That would lead to the small muscles in the foot actually constricting, the toes bending over and a deformed …. foot that is sort of clawed over and doesn’t have good sensation,” said plastic surgeon, Mr Robert Love today, on Australia’s ABC Radio.

“Even if you can get all of that to survive, he [would be] worse off than having had an amputation.”

“What is very disappointing is that for the first two days after [the operation] the foot looked absolutely magnificent,” he said.

Terry’s hands were healing well, said the surgeon. The prosthetic foot would allow him to walk normally, since his knee was intact.

Retirement Living In Omaha Has Many Benefits

Posted by VZWk94v8 on March 18, 2019

byAlma Abell

When the kids have grown up and start their own families, many seniors move out of their large family homes in favor of something smaller and more manageable. One of the best options for seniors is a retirement community. Retirement Living in Omaha offers many advantages over maintaining a private residence.

YouTube Preview Image

One of the greatest benefits of retirement living is being among people their own age. Seniors who live in retirement communities are close to other people in their age group. Many senior living communities organize a number of activities that are created especially for older adults. There is never a dull moment for active seniors. Those who prefer a more peaceful life aren’t disturbed by young families.

Retirement communities are designed for seniors to age in place. Living spaces include hand rails and bathroom fixtures that are accessible whether the resident is walking on their own or using a walker or a wheelchair. Apartments typically have emergency call systems so seniors can get help quickly if they need it. Residents with health problems can alert staff so a medical team can assist them immediately.

Seniors who have mobility problems can get help with their daily living tasks without having to burden their family members. Staff at senior living communities provide housekeeping services and offer cooked meals for residents who can’t or don’t want to prepare their own food. Apartments are large enough for family members to visit comfortably. Adult children are often surprised at how happy their parents are when they choose Retirement Living in Omaha.

Residents can be as independent as they like when they live in a retirement community. Many seniors like to leave the community to shop or take walks in nearby neighborhoods. Others stay on the property and enjoy the manicured grounds and wide range of activities available on a regular basis for residents.

On-site medical care may be provided to residents who need it. Most reirement comminities also have a barbershop and beauty salon so residents can remain well-groomed. Transportation may also be available for medical appointments or for shopping trips. However, seniors who have personal vehicles may keep them in the parking garage for their convenience.
