As Senate works on emergency funding, NAFCU, trades share how FIs are helping consumers

first_imgAs the Senate works on coronavirus emergency funding packages, NAFCU joined with other financial trade groups Tuesday to keep lawmakers informed of how credit unions and other financial institutions are stepping up to support consumers during the coronavirus pandemic.“As this virus spreads, banks and credit unions will continue to get a better sense of the needs of their customers, members and communities,” the trades wrote. “While some states thus far have been more impacted than others by the virus, this is a situation that is changing quickly.

Building on a history of resistance, Black women lead the way in this election

first_imgWhile Harris’s nomination is historic and meaningful, Black women’s overwhelming interest and commitment to casting a ballot is not a new feature in American politics. In 2008 and ’12, Black women voted at the highest rate of any race and gender subgroup.  […]The passage in 1920 of the 19th Amendment, which granted voting rights to all women in theory but only white women in practice, had little effect on Black women’s lives. Through an array of legal and extralegal strategies, white Americans worked to keep Black people from practicing the constitutional right to vote.Black women passionately resisted these efforts. During the 1960s, for example, civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer led a nationwide movement to expand the voting rights of Black Americans. It was a bold act of defiance—and a matter of life and death. As Hamer explained in a 1964 interview with The Nation, “We’re tired of all this beatin,’ we’re tired of takin’ this. It’s been a hundred years and we’re still being beaten and shot at, crosses are still being burned, because we want to vote.” Fully aware of the consequences of her actions, Hamer refused to capitulate. “I’m goin’ to stay in Mississippi,” she added, “and if they shoot me down, I’ll be buried here.” […](You can learn more about Fannie Lou Hamer from this excerpt of Drawing the Vote: An Illustrated Guide to Voting in America, a graphic novel on the history of voting rights, by author Tommy Jenkins and illustrator Kati Lacker.)THREE OTHER ARTICLES WORTH READINGTOP COMMENTSQUOTATION“The vote is the emblem of your equality, women of America, the guarantee of your liberty. That vote of yours has cost millions of dollars and the lives of thousands of women. Money to carry on this work has been given usually as a sacrifice, and thousands of women have gone without things they wanted and could have had in order that they might help get the vote for you. Women have suffered agony of soul which you can never comprehend, that you and your daughters might inherit political freedom. That vote has been costly. Prize it! The vote is a power, a weapon of offense and defense, a prayer. Understand what it means and what it can do for your country. Use it intelligently, conscientiously, prayerfully.” ~~Carrie Chapman CattTWEET OF THE DAYBLAST FROM THE PAST- Advertisement – At Daily Kos on this date in 2018—If Democrats succeed on Election Day, women will be one big reason:There has been a lot of reporting on the phenomenon of white college-educated women moving away from Republicans and, in some cases, running toward Democrats due to how repulsed they are by Donald Trump. Some of this has been anecdotal, but the polling on women is telling. In a Washington Post/ABC news poll, Trump enjoys 48 percent support among men compared to just 33 percent support among women. And check out the trend lines from the same poll on female party identification over the last eight years, which is moving increasingly toward Democrats and away from the GOP. […]Democratic gains among women start around the end of 2014, when just over 50 percent of female voters identified as Democrats, and get a nice little bump when Trump becomes pr*sident, reaching 58 percent now. And in the eight-year period between 2010 and 2018, Republicans lost fully 7 points among women who identify with the party. – Advertisement –last_img read more

2006 SUMMIT COVERAGE: Author Barry says pandemic planners should expect waves

first_imgFeb 16, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – If the next influenza pandemic imitates past ones and plays out in waves, the first wave might serve as a warning that gives the world a little time to prepare for the worst, a leading expert on the pandemic of 1918 told business leaders at a Minneapolis meeting this week.John M. Barry, author of the 2004 book The Great Influenza, an account of the 1918 pandemic, said the first phase of that pandemic, in early 1918, was mild. The disease didn’t strike with full ferocity until the second wave about 6 months later, in September and October.”The first wave was so mild that you could read in a scientific journal article that this disease looked like influenza and acted like influenza but it can’t be influenza because it was, so far, absent the usual complications of influenza,” Barry told a luncheon audience on the first day of the “Business Planning for Pandemic Influenza” meeting at the Minneapolis Convention Center.”At first it wasn’t great at infecting people in large numbers,” he said. “Over a period of about 6 months, it was becoming more and more and more efficient, and then suddenly seemed to erupt simultaneously all over the world on three continents.”On the basis of pandemic planning meetings he has attended, Barry said planners don’t seem to be figuring on “the wave phenomenon.” “I think it’s important to take that into consideration, because you may well have 6 to 8 months after the first identified human [case],” before the worst phase hits, he said. “There may be an opportunity there.”The 1918 pandemic had three waves, as Barry recounts in his book. The last wave, in the winter of 1918-19, was milder than the second, though still much worse than the first.Barry said that in the pandemic of 1889, which also was severe, the third wave was the most lethal. If that happened in the next pandemic, “it would be good news for us, because by that time we would be fully protected by vaccine,” he said. Once a pandemic flu virus emerges, it is expected to take at least 6 months to develop and begin producing a vaccine precisely matched to the virus.US Army data make clear how fast the 1918 virus evolved in the course of the pandemic, according to Barry. At the first five major army camps affected, 20% of the troops who caught the flu suffered pneumonia, and 37% of the pneumonia patients died. At the last five camps hit by the virus, an average of just 3 weeks after the first five, only 7% of flu patients had pneumonia, and 17% of them died.”You have to understand that this is going to be a constantly changing enemy,” Barry said.If Barry sounded faintly reassuring on the subject of pandemic phases, he was the opposite on other points.He cited the prediction of other experts at the 2-day meeting that even if the next pandemic is severe, about 98% of people will survive. Though he didn’t take issue with that overall, he said the toll could be much worse in certain places or among certain groups. In 1918, about a third of the populations of Alaska and Labrador perished, and in Western Samoa the toll was 22%. In Fiji, 16% of the people died in just 2 weeks. And among young adults in general—the hardest hit group—an estimated 4% to 8% succumbed.In addition, today’s population is “clinically more vulnerable” to flu than the population in 1918, Barry said. The reason is the many people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly, HIV/AIDS patients, and cancer patients.To drive home the importance of preparedness, Barry talked about the widespread failure of public officials in 1918 to level with the public about the influenza threat. In an atmosphere of rigid wartime censorship, enforced by laws that “make the Patriot Act look like a resolution of the ACLU,” any utterance that could have been construed as harmful to public morale was punishable, he explained.Hence, public officials mostly downplayed or lied about the pandemic, saying things like, “This is ordinary influenza by another name,” Barry said. Rather than allaying fear and panic, this approach increased them.But there were a few places “that sort of did prepare and did tell the truth from the beginning,” he said. “In San Francisco, the city from day 1 told the truth about the disease.” As a result, “you didn’t get the panic and social breakdown that you got elsewhere.”The lesson is that when people are told the truth about a danger, they can prepare and deal with it, he said. “So preparation does make a difference.”Barry, of Washington, DC, is a distinguished visiting scholar at Tulane University in New Orleans.last_img read more
