Where does Cuomo go after he leaves?
So, now that the state AG’s report on “Governor” Cuomo is out for the public to read in its entirety, most of the state’s elected representatives are finally calling for him to go.
The question now arises as to where he will go once he is removed, either forcibly by uniformed officers or willingly from the Executive Mansion and all other state offices, as I doubt he will.
I have an answer for that though.
All he has to do is call 561-832-2600 and ask for the reservations desk at the Mar-A-Lago.
I’m sure they have room for one more failed political career hack.
If he’s real nice and asks to speak to Donald, I’m sure he can get the Bridal Suite and the two of them can go over their joint re-election campaign together. I can see the banners now… Trump – Cuomo 2024. Who else ya gonna call ?
School staff should have to be vaccinated
Schools are getting ready to open, so it is already late in the game. ALL teachers and staff at every school should have to be vaccinated.
No elementary school child can yet be vaccinated against covid, nor can most middle school children be.
There are probably hundreds of high school students in the area who can be but have not yet been vaccinated. It is for the safety of themselves AND the community and the children whom they serve that teachers and staff present themselves as those who cannot as easily spread the virus.
It is imperative that just as medical centers and places where seniors live have demanded their staff be vaccinated, that those caring for our youngest also have this demand placed on them. Public health is a responsibility of each and every one of us. Superintendents, do your job and make this a rule.
Schenectady needs to fix its Wi-Fi situation
Schenectady Wi-Fi is a failure. Bring any device like a smart phone in range of Schenectady wireless and that device will lock onto Schenectady Wi-Fi. At that point, you are able to access NOTHING. Case in point: Try to park in and around City Hall. Open the Passport app on your phone. Enter the zone number of the parking lot you are in: “Internet failure” message appears.
Of course the failure is because your device latches onto the nearest signal, which is the non-functional Schenectady Wi-Fi.
While volunteering at a site in Schenectady, I cannot access any internet connections (mail, internet search, etc.) because the Schenectady Wi-Fi doesn’t work.
I recall the great fanfare with which city officials launched the city-wide access to the internet.
Perhaps one of those officials should try to use said system.
Don’t put off health visits for your kids
In 2020, there were 1 million less HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine doses given in the United States, as compared to 2019.
COVID-19 caused many parents to delay regular health care visits for their children. In fact, data show a 71% decrease in healthcare visits for children ages 7 to 17 years old during 2020.
The HPV vaccine is highly effective at preventing certain cancers, such as cervical, vaginal, vulvar, penile, anal, and cancers of the mouth and throat. The HPV vaccine is given to boys and girls beginning at age nine and through age 26. If you’ve had to put off your child’s vaccinations, talk to your health care provider about getting them back on your calendar.
The Cancer Prevention in Action Program (CPiA) works to increase HPV vaccination rates in children in order to prevent cancer in adulthood. CPiA is helping New York get back on track with HPV vaccination and other ways to prevent cancer.
To learn more about the CPiA Program go to www.takeactionagainstcancer.com or contact us at 518-770-6815. CPiA is supported with funds from the State of New York.
