PLUCK UP! Covid cases are rising again, and a new Delta variant is mutating disturbingly fast thru unvaccinated hosts, aka asymptomatic spreaders who might not realize the harm they're doing. To stop the virus, we need to stop giving it the chance to infect new people. That's how it "learns" to get around vaccines & anti-viral drugs.

The science is fascinating! Dr. Woodson lays out the latest facts about COVID, with interesting videos and links to more information -- including a free vaccine and booster event Thursday November 18th: https://nwlocalpaper.com/its-go-time

โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒƒ JUST ONE NIGHT โ€“ In an exercise in empathy and activism, dozens of Philadelphians camped out at City Hall last week, in solidarity with the Cityโ€™s 6,000+ unhoused adults and children facing the long, cold winter ahead. Attendees demanded Mayor Kenney move faster to appropriate the nearly 130,000 unused/abandoned houses that could be rehabbed to provide emergency shelter.

People talked and brainstormed well into the frosty night. โ€œSh*t has to change,โ€ said Jamaal Henderson of ACT UP Philly. โ€œWe need to unite against do-gooderism, and demand power not pity.โ€ Organizations are coordinating a Winter Offensive to advocate and provide for the needs and safety of neighbors suffering in the current housing crisis. โ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ„๏ธ

๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿš‚ TANKERS OF TROUBLE: For the first time in US history, a highly-explosive methane gas may be shipped by rail across the river from East Falls, Manayunk, Roxborough & other North Philly neighborhoods.

Until 2019, shipping "liquified natural gas" (LNG) so close to populated areas was considered too dangerous -- the potential explosive energy of a single 30,000 gallon tanker car is equal to 620 tons of dynamite. LNG trains are often miles long, linking hundreds of cars. An explosion could cause destruction akin to an atomic bomb! ๐Ÿงจ๐Ÿงจ๐Ÿงจ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Even a mere leak could generate flammable v***r clouds that can ignite on-site or drift with the wind and blow up elsewhere. Liquidized gas can also overheat and v***rize within a tanker, in which case the increased pressure rips out in a massive fireball. Oh yeah, even without exploding, LNG v***r clouds can asphyxiate if you inhale enough to displace the air in your lungs... โšฐ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Ž

So why is this legal? What happened in 2019 to allow this gross public safety hazard, and what can be done to reverse the risk? All you need to know about "bomb trains" at the link, including a petition you can put your name on today, that might help stop a disaster tomorrow: https://nwlocalpaper.com/fright-train ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

11/01/2021

๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโ›“Capitalist Punishment: The US imprisons more citizens by far than any other country in the world โ€“ most for nonviolent drug, property and immigration offenses. Whether or not we agree on locking up all these people, surely, they donโ€™t deserve to be abused or denied critical care. However, in Pennsylvania and other states across the nation, countless men and women face cruel and life-threatening medical negligence from their captors with little or no accountability.

Incarceration is not meant to be fun or convenient. Itโ€™s a total loss of personal liberty. A prisoner is a ward of the state, completely dependent on the correctional system for food, shelter and health care needed for basic survival. If we as a society support locking up all these people, then we need to take responsibility for them.

According to Police Policy initiative, about 40% of incarcerated men (& 70% of women) have been diagnosed with a mental illness or disability. Yet less than a third of these individuals are receiving adequate treatment. Many are getting none at all โ€“ often denied vital medications or given the wrong ones. When inmates fail to control themselves, they are punished and isolated, which only increases their stress. No wonder su***de is a leading cause of death in US jails since 2000.

Cory Clarkโ€™s โ€œAmerican Injusticeโ€ series provides an unblinking look at our prison system through a distinctly local lens, starting with how weโ€™re failing to medically care for all the citizens we put behind bars:

Local Voice for NW Philly

Founded in 2014, The Local offers hyperlocal news with a โ€œhypervocalโ€ spin.

โ€œEast Falls Localโ€ started as a page for photos & items of interest specific to our neighborhood of East Falls, Philadelphia. Soon after, we began sharing features on EastFallsLocal.com, and in a free publication we offered at first seasonally, and then monthly as our popularity grew. In 2017, CultureWorks of Greater Philadelphia took us under their humanities wing as a non-profit project promoting free, independent press. Thanks to a generous grant from Citizens for the Arts in Pennsylvania in 2018, we became โ€œThe Localโ€ and expanded to highlight contributors throughout NW Philadelphia -- reporters, community leaders, and developers, as well as fiction & humor writers, memoirists, reviewers, and more.

Re-booted as nwlocalpaper.com (thanks Todd!), weโ€™re telling the stories you wonโ€™t find in anywhere else, from the โ€œfront linesโ€ of developing neighborhoods struggling with real issues and celebrating unique triumphs every day.

SUBMISSIONS: Authors, artists, designers, photographers, and makers of all kinds -- email [email protected] for guidelines and a โ€œWish Listโ€ of content weโ€™re currently seeking. SPONSORS & ADVERTISERS: In addition to print ads and social media blasts, we offer a variety of exciting ways to connect with our diverse, highly-engaged audience. Since weโ€™re a 501-C3 (non-profit organization), your contributions may be tax deductible! Email [email protected] for more information. Thank you for supporting free local press.
