Southcoast Health gears up for busy flu season with outdoor clinics – News – The Herald News, Fall River, MA

NEW BEDFORD — The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced its flu vaccination campaign kickoff on Oct. 1 and local hospitals are jumping in and taking action through flu clinics.

Linda Hevenor, vice president of clinical operations for Southcoast Health, said that she was amazed at the turnout at one of the clinics. “There was a line down the hallway, something I haven’t seen in over four years,” she said.

According to the CDC, it was estimated that vaccination coverage for people 6 months and older increased nearly 52% during the 2019-2020 season from the previous year. Although the flu vaccine does not protect against COVID-19, Hevenor said that it decreases the burden of respiratory illness, good for both patients and the health care workforce. She said that having a dual infection could lead to greater morbidity and mortality rates.

Southcoast Health is encouraging all staff, providers and patients

Restaurants prepare for colder temperatures during the pandemic

Honest Coffee Roasters is a café in downtown Huntsville, when restaurants were first allowed to let customers back inside back in May, Owner Christy Graves took the cautious route and kept people outside.

Graves and her employees relied on their large garage door to serve people right out on the sidewalk and several outdoor tables and chairs to give people places to eat and drink. It’s part of a lot of adjustments they’ve made.

“We made a real effort to increase our to-go capabilities, we added a second

How the Pandemic Put a Lid on New Orleans’s Outdoor Drinking Culture

Few American cities can claim a bar and drinking culture as intertwined with their mythologies as New Orleans. The port city is a fabled destination for its expert boozing and “go-cups” — the beloved alcoholic beverage served in a to-go cup, available for purchase at most of the 1,400 establishments with liquor licenses in the city. Empowered by the ability to roam city streets cocktail in hand, visitors find themselves stopping in and out of bars, gathering around street performers, making new friends. By the end of a weekend, it may inspire a new sense of self-will in the visitor — “Why can’t I walk around with a drink as I please in my city?”

5% Dividend Yield From Postal Office Real Estate: Postal Realty (NYSE:PSTL)

Postal Realty Trust (PSTL) is an internally managed real estate investment trust (‘REIT’) that owns properties leased to the United States Postal Service (‘USPS’). The fragmented state of USPS properties makes PSTL an unlikely growth story with a hefty 5% dividend yield as a starting point. While the tenant concentration is a potential cause for concern, PSTL appears to be a worthy addition to any dividend growth portfolio.

Postal Office Real Estate

For those who are unfamiliar with postal office real estate, the USPS is a government entity whereas the underlying USPS properties are often privately owned. PSTL owns 666 such properties spread across 47 states, with a heavy concentration everywhere except the West coast:

While it is tempting to put PSTL in the same league as triple net lease (‘NNN’) operators such as Realty Income (O), there are important distinctions to make. Typical NNN REITs like

How AETHER Makes and Tests Their Lifetime-Guarantee Outdoor Apparel

What’s one of your favorite adventures you’ve tested gear on?

Palmer: Years ago, Jonah and I did this thing we called “chasing winter.” The resorts across the Rockies close for the elk migration at a certain point after the first week of April, so that first week was kind of a sweet spot for Jonah and I — we were thinking, “Well, the roads are probably clear and we can chase the final days of winter and ski on six or seven resorts and actually strap the skis and snowboards on the side of our motorcycles.” 

So we were wearing a combination of both our moto gear and our snow-sports gear, because we would roll into a parking lot and go ski. Going through the high plains of Wyoming, about negative 26 or 27 degrees, 45-mph crosswind, I realized our stuff really works. I’m going 90 miles an hour in

Real Estate Commission Lawsuit Continues. Are Agent Commissions at Risk?

Within the real estate industry, commission is one of the most hotly debated topics. Real estate is one of the few remaining industries that is primarily commission-based. While real estate agent commissions are always negotiable, most commissions tend to fall within the 5% to 6% range. This commission is traditionally split between the buyer’s agent and seller’s agent but paid by the seller out of the sale of the home.

A lawsuit that takes aim at that concept recently received approval to proceed from a federal judge in Illinois, the home of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Moehrl v. National Association of Realtors et al. is a lawsuit that could become a potential class action in Illinois. It alleges commission splits and multiple listing service (MLS) organizations are inherently anticompetitive.

The suit was filed on behalf of home sellers who paid a commission within the last four years. It

How Hawa Hassan Built a Cookbook Around East African Grandmothers: Women Who Travel Podcast

LA: No, no, it really does. Sort of going on to food appropriation and recipe appropriation, I mean, you kind of touched on this before, but where do you think that line lies between who gets to cook what?

HH: I think all of it is rooted in respect. I think everyone should eat what they want, they should cook what they want, but how are you sharing that space when you’re in it? Are you occupying it? Are you closing the door behind you when you get into someone else’s culture? Who else is in that position to better tell those stories that is from that place? And then also, what is your reasoning for being in that space? Is it to learn more and to bring the world closer to one another and to make the table longer? Or is it to just, again, occupy it?

It’s like,
