Trump should be transparent about health

first_img“Given heightened tensions with a nuclear-armed North Korea, among many other tense global problems, Americans also need to know that their president, with ultimate control over our nation’s vast nuclear power, is of sound mind.“Some people wondered about Ronald Reagan’s mental fitness during his second term, before he was tragically diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.“I hope to show Americans they need not harbor any similar doubts about me.“When George W. Bush had my job at a substantially younger age, he submitted himself to a wide battery of tests from a team of doctors, and he released detailed results.I owe the public the same — or a greater — level of transparency.“Medical records are confidential by law, and I can choose to withhold the results from the public, selectively or entirely. But I realize that I am not an ordinary citizen, and my health is a public concern.“I pledge to release all results, whether positive or negative, including any medications that are prescribed for me and any other doctors’ recommendations. In the run-up to the exam, the president rebutted questions about his mental health by tweeting that he “would qualify as not smart, but genius … and a very stable genius at that!”Here’s what a more presidential president would be saying this week about his health, mental and physical:“I know that, at 70, I was the oldest president ever to be sworn in for his first term.“Although I believe I am in good shape, the public cannot help but wonder about my health.“Media reports about my eating and sleeping habits, as well as my own admission during the campaign that I could lose a few pounds, can only contribute to the concern.“The days in which a president could hide health problems, even major ones, from the public are rightly gone.“Americans should know whether their president has the energy to stay focused through a long workday and the chances that a significant health issue could compromise the executive office in the years to come. “Given my father’s Alzheimer’s and my own age, I will also insist on taking a mental acuity test. I will release the results of that test also, and I will repeat it every year.“In my effort to show the American people the same respect my predecessors did, I will also honor another long-held tradition and release two decades of tax returns along with the results of my medical exam.“Presidents releasing their tax records is a bipartisan norm and a valuable one“It gives Americans a sense of how their president has conducted his private affairs and of what potential conflicts of interest he has.“These traditions exist for good reasons.“I am no more special than any other person who has held my office, and I deserve no exceptions from these expectations.”More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationcenter_img Categories: Editorial, OpinionThe following editorial appeared in The Washington Post:President Donald Trump is scheduled to undergo a routine physical examination Friday.last_img read more

Wege misses point on fossil fuel impact

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion As usual, Russell Wege, an advocate for the fossil fuel industry, spews facts illogically thinking that he’s persuading us that “fossil fuels not solely to blame for climate change [May 13 Op-ed].” He starts off by saying that the climate began to warm 200 years ago, which is absolutely true. And that was because of the start of the Industrial Revolution and the burning of fossil fuels.  Since the Industrial Revolution, the concentration globally has increased by about 40 percent.According to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the burning of fossil fuels has everything to do with the warming of our climate.Even if Mr. Wege refuses to agree with the leading scientists and institutions of our day, here’s a question for him: Has he been on roads in Albany during rush hour? Where does he think the exhaust fumes go? Has he seen snow in the winter black from fossil fuels dissolving in it and then going down the sewers into our water supply?There’s something that Mr. Wege doesn’t even consider in his call to not lessen our use of fossil fuels: Do future generations not deserve to have some fossil fuels left in the ground? Will future inhabitants of planet Earth be denied from using fossil fuels in, for example, medicines, because they are gone? Our descendants may call the time we are living in the Age of Greed.Christine BishopGuilderlandMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesAlbany County warns of COVID increaselast_img read more

Top US court rejects Trump immunity claim, orders records handed over

first_imgThe court ruled 7-2 against Trump in a case brought by Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance, a Democrat who is seeking the president’s financial records in connection with a “hush money” payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels that may have violated campaign finance laws.While the court ruled that Trump’s accountants must turn over the records, it did leave room for his lawyers to challenge the scope of the district attorney’s subpoena in a lower court.Both of the conservative justices appointed by Trump — Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh — joined Chief Justice John Roberts and the four liberal justices in rejecting the claim by Trump’s lawyers that a president enjoyed absolute immunity.”Two hundred years ago, a great jurist of our Court established that no citizen, not even the President, is categorically above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding,” Roberts said. “We reaffirm that principle today.” ‘Tremendous victory’ The other case concerned a request by three Democratic-led House committees for Trump’s tax returns and other records and the Republican president received a temporary reprieve there.In another 7-2 ruling, the court sent the congressional case back to a lower court, saying it needs to further examine the question of separation of powers between the legislative and executive branches of government.Vance called the ruling “a tremendous victory for our nation’s system of justice and its founding principle that no one -– not even a president -– is above the law.””Our investigation, which was delayed for almost a year by this lawsuit, will resume, guided as always by the grand jury’s solemn obligation to follow the law and the facts, wherever they may lead,” Vance said.Even if Trump’s financial records are eventually turned over to the New York prosecutors they may remain hidden from public view because of grand jury secrecy.Jay Sekulow, Trump’s attorney, sought to portray the rulings as a win for Trump but the president reacted angrily.”This is about PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT,” Trump tweeted.”This is all a political prosecution,” Trump added. “Now I have to keep fighting in a politically corrupt New York. Not fair to this Presidency or Administration!”The president had a more measured response several hours later. “From a certain point I’m satisfied, from another point I’m not satisfied,” Trump told reporters.Sekulow said he was “pleased” by the decisions.”The Supreme Court has temporarily blocked both Congress and New York prosecutors from obtaining the President’s financial records,” Sekulow said. “We will now proceed to raise additional Constitutional and legal issues in the lower courts.” The US Supreme Court delivered a blow to President Donald Trump on Thursday, rejecting his claim of immunity from criminal investigation and ruling that his financial records must be handed over to New York prosecutors.But the nation’s highest court, in a decision in a separate case, temporarily blocked Trump’s Democratic opponents in Congress from accessing his tax returns and business files.The rulings prompted a string of furious tweets from Trump but they may actually allow the New York real estate tycoon to keep his tax returns and other financial documents hidden until after the November election.center_img ‘Continue to press our case’ Nancy Pelosi, Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives, said she would continue to press for Trump’s  records to be handed over to Congress.”The Congress will continue to conduct oversight For The People, upholding the separation of powers that is the genius of our Constitution,” Pelosi said. “We will continue to press our case in the lower courts.”The Democratic-led committees are looking into the president’s finances and those of the Trump Organization and his family in what started as a probe into foreign influence in the 2016 election.Trump’s secrecy over his tax returns and personal finances has prompted speculation about his true worth and possible financial entanglements.Trump promised to release his tax returns during his 2016 campaign for the White House but has declined to do so.US presidents are not required by law to release details of their personal finances but every US leader since Richard Nixon has done so.The politically sensitive cases were being closely watched because of their potentially far-reaching implications on the limits of presidential power and congressional authority.In both the New York and congressional cases, subpoenas were issued to Mazars, Trump’s longtime accounting firm, as well as to Deutsche Bank and Capital One bank demanding his financial records.Topics :last_img read more

It’s the busiest time of the year for renters and landlords

first_img196 Crosby Rd, Ascot is listed for rent for $800 per week. Picture: realestate.com.au“We like that it’s close to good restaurants and bars, as well as work.”With the increasing demand from renters to find affordable properties with desirable addresses and amenities, landlords with rentals outside of these areas will have to work harder to secure tenants. Marketing specialist Jennifer Grangier said there were a number of things landlords could do to better their chances at finding tenants quickly.“Invest in high quality, professional photos and prominent advertising,” she said.“If a property comes up as a top search and looks well presented, it is far more likely to rent.Ms Grangier said during the first two weeks landlords should research other similar homes in the area for rent.“List the property competitivity from the start, but do your homework.“Even a $10 per week increase over the market price could see [the property] on the market for weeks longer, which could end up costing the landlord hundreds or even thousands in lost rent. Keeden Gafa-Mangos outside the apartment building he has rented in. Picture: AAP/Sarah Marshall.AS many renters view the start of a new year as the ideal time to find a home, Brisbane landlords open their rental properties to those looking to move. Ray White, New Farm, principal Haesley Cush said January was a busier month for rental properties than any other time throughout the calendar year. “A lot of people tend to wait until now to move,” he said.“For some it’s the start of a new job, university or life in a new city. A new home is a new year resolution. It marks the start of change, a fresh start.”With the high demand from tenants comes an influx of new rental listings and available properties for rent.“With all this enquiry, Brisbane has the available stock,” Mr Cush saidhe said.“Landlords know there’s an abundance of tenants looking for new homes, so they take advantage of this by leasing their properties from January.”However, due to strong competition, some may struggle to secure tenants, and will resort to adjusting their rental prices to provide incentive.“The fight for the available tenant is very aggressive,” he said. “Developers are offering incredible incentives to tenants, leaving mum and dad investors with little option but to lower their rental price to compete.Despite this potential setback for some landlords, Mr Cush remains confident that January is a positive time for rental properties for both parties.Realestate.com.au chief economist Nerida Conisbee said the site had recorded more than 1.2 million searches for rentals in Brisbane in the first two weeks of 2018.Mr Cush said his agency alone had received more than 146 applications in this time.“To put that into perspective, we received a total of 104 application for the October – December quarter,” he said.Mr Cush said the majority of applications received by this agency were for New Farm. “We find that at this time of the year, rental properties in suburbs that cater to tenants’ needs perform best.“With demand high in the area, we’re ensuring there is no shortage of rentals on the market. “There were over 2,000 available properties in our immediate area advertised on realestate.com.au this month,” he said. Renters Keeden Gafa-Mangos and Jordan Lee Maass have recently secured an apartment in Teneriffe, after moving from a house in Greenslopes. Mr Gafa-Mangos said the couple started shortlisting properties to inspect during January at the end of 2017.“There was no shortage of apartments available to rent,” he said.“For us, it was pretty easy to find something with so many available options.”Mr Gafa-Mangos said the couple was happy with their new rental property.“We looked at a few others, but this was bigger and cheaper than previous ones we’d looked at.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach Northless than 1 hour agoNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by “A lot of the other places didn’t come with the amenities this apartment offered.“This was far better value for money.”Mr Gafa-Mangos said the new location was well suited to their lifestyle.“We wanted something in a location with a bit more going on. 78 Miller St, Chermside is listed for rent for $450 per week.

Cricket News Jhye Richardson suffers a dislocated shoulder in Sharjah ODI against Pakistan

first_img New Delhi: Australian speedster Jhye Richardson suffers a dislocated shoulder and will not take to the field again in the second ODI. The 22-year old suffered the injury on the fifth ball of the eleventh over diving to his left in an attempt to save a boundary in the deep midwicket area. He landed heavily on his right elbow, and immediately gestured for help, with his right arm hanging limply by his side.In truth, tonight’s unavailability will be the least of Richardson’s worries, or indeed Australia’s. There is a strong possibility the fast bowler may face several weeks on the sidelines, and with the World Cup less than two months away, his potential absence for the tournament will be a major cause for concern for the defending champions. Jhye Richardson suffers a dislocated shoulder in Sharjah ODI against Pakistan.The third game is scheduled to be played on March 27. Australia won the first game of the series.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Richardson has been in sublime form from quite sometime now and performing exceedingly well in the ongoing series against Pakistan. He maintained a probing good line for most of his five-over spell, removing both openers. He also bowled the only two maiden overs of the innings and conceding just 16 runs in his five overs.Of late, he had become one of the leading fast bowlers in the side, taking eight wickets in the last three ODIs against India and making a compelling case for a regular place in the XI in the one-day setup. In the more immediate term, Richardson’s injury left Australia with a bowler short, with Aaron Finch pressing himself into service to make up some of the shortfalls.Meanwhile, Australia is finally back on the winning ways of having won the last four games on the trot. This remains to be seen how men-in-yellow perform in the absence of the young sensation.  highlightslast_img read more
