Pelosi announces bill on 25th Amendment after questioning Trump’s health

PELOSI SERIOUS ABOUT 25th AMMENDMENT

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday announced legislation to create a commission that would allow Congress to oust a president from office, using the 25th Amendment, a day after she accused President Trump of being “in an altered state” from his coronavirus treatment.

“This is not about President Trump,” Pelosi maintained Friday. “He will face the judgment of the voters. But he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents.”

Pelosi denied that the timing of the legislation had anything to do with the election and argued that setting up a commission on presidential capacity is needed to “give some comfort to people” on the stability of the government.

Trump immediately shot back and said Pelosi’s effort is really to remove a future President Joe Biden.

DAWG SAYS: BOTH IDEAS COULD BE TRUE.

KIDNAPPED WOMAN SAVED BY LOCKSMITH AFTER A SECRET MESSAGE

A woman in Utah held against her will was saved by a locksmith after she wrote 911 on her hand, according to a report.

Grant Nielsen Eggertsen, 45, faces charges of aggravated kidnapping in the course of committing unlawful detention, as well as criminal trespass of a dwelling and simple assault after he kidnapped her at her home in Midway, about 45 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, the Deseret News reported.

ALERT LOCKSMITH SAVES KIDNAPPED WOMAN

A repairman showed up last Friday to replace the locks and she discreetly warned him with the signal on her hand.

Eggertsen allegedly showed up the night before and refused to leave.

“She asked him to leave multiple times and he would not leave and he was holding her in her room against her will,” authorities wrote, adding that the suspect threatened to burn the house down.

When cops showed up after the locksmith called police, the woman “quickly opened the door and walked fast out the front door and stated that [Eggertsen] was downstairs in the house,” authorities said.

The case is being investigated as a matter of domestic violence.


METFORMIN RECALL FOR CANCER CAUSING AGENTS

METFORMIN RECALL FOR CANCER CAUSING AGENTS

A diabetes drug has been recalled because it contains high levels of cancer-causing agent

METFORMIN RECALL FOR CANCER CAUSING AGENTS

An Indian pharmaceutical company is recalling some metformin tablets because they may contain higher-than-normal levels of a carcinogen.

A widely-used diabetes drug has been recalled after manufacturers found it contained unacceptably high levels of a cancer-causing contaminant.

Indian pharmaceutical company Marksans Pharma Limited is recalling metformin hydrochloride extended-release tablets because their levels of NDMA, a “probable human carcinogen,” were higher than the acceptable daily intake limit of 96 nanograms per day, according to a recall published this week by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Metformin tablets are used to treat type 2 diabetes and are designed to lower glucose levels.

The recall applies to metformin tablets between 500 mg and 750 mg, sold under the brand name Time-Cap Labs, Inc.

NDMA IS WHAT CAUSED EARLIER RECALLS

The recall expands an earlier recall of the same product from this summer. But it’s just one of several metformin products that have been found to contain NDMA in the last year. Seven other pharmaceutical companies have issued recalls for metformin hydrochloride extended-release tablets due to their carcinogenic contents.

The FDA is still investigating where NDMA comes from and how it ends up in metformin products. Most levels found in medications are generally low and fall within the FDA’s accepted daily intake, but recently recalled medications exceed that. Marksans Pharma Limited, India, however, did not reveal how much NDMA its recalled products contained.

The recall applies to the following products, which can be identified by their National Drug Code numbers listed below (National Drug Codes can be used to search and identify products online through the FDA). The tablets are either embossed with 101 or 102 on one side and are plain on the other.

Metformin Hydrochloride Extended-Release Tablets, USP 500mg:

90 counts: 49483-623-09

100 counts: 49483-623-01

500 counts: 49483-623-50

The Most-Photographed Lighthouse In The Country Is Right Here On The Northern California Coast

Considered a photographer’s mecca, it’s no secret that California’s coastal beauty regularly attracts visitors from all over the world. There are tons of great photo ops to be found along our breathtaking coastline including hidden beaches, clifftop parks, and tons of historic lighthouses. In fact, we may just be home to the most photographed lighthouse in the country: Pigeon Point Lighthouse. It’s likely you’ve seen photos (or taken one yourself) of this popular lighthouse, and it’s no wonder why. Located in the most beautiful setting, this historic lighthouse makes for a pretty wonderful sight!

Located on a rocky promontory south of the San Francisco Bay, Pigeon Point Lighthouse is probably one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the entire West Coast–not to mention the tallest.

At 115-feet tall, Pigeon Point is tied with Point Arena Light as the tallest lighthouse on the West Coast.

Seeing it with your own eyes should definitely be on your bucket list, especially since its location next to the highway makes it easy for visitors to access.

The lighthouse and the land surrounding it are located within Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park.
Built in 1871, the lighthouse remains active in aiding the Coast Guard to this day, an amazing 150 years later.

NOR CAL ADVENTURES PIGEON POINT LIGHTHOUSE

Ships today are guided using an automated LED beacon, but back in the day, the lighthouse used a five-wick lard oil lamp and Fresnel lens.

The lens, standing at 16-feet tall and 6-feet in diameter,
was first lit at sunset on November 15, 1872.

Nowadays, it’s on display in the fog signal building.
The lighthouse tower has been closed to tours since the collapse of supporting brickwork in December 2001.
However, the lighthouse can still be viewed from the grounds where visitors can explore
by themselves or on a half-hour guided history walk

The lighthouse is definitely a man-made wonder worth marveling over, but the surrounding scenery is what makes it a destination to remember.

The coastal area around Pigeon Point is comprised of gorgeous reefs, rugged cliffs, and colorful wildflowers.
Typical wildlife seen in the area includes seals and whales.
Admission is free to the park and facilities include restrooms, picnic tables, and a park store.

The next time you feel like soaking up some coastal beauty, visit the equally beautiful and historic Pigeon Point Lighthouse.
And don’t forget your camera!

CLARK COUNTY HOUSHOLDS GETTING HELP WITH POWER BILLS

Clark County to pay thousands of late power bills for residents

CLARK COUNTY HOUSHOLDS GETTING HELP WITH POWER BILLS

Clark County announced Thursday it will effectively pay 15,700 late power bills of Southern Nevadans who are struggling financially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The county plans to pay NV Energy $5.3 million to cover costs of those late bills with funding from the federal coronavirus relief package, known as the CARES Act, enacted in March. Unincorporated Clark County residents will see their accounts automatically credited if they have indicated they are affected by the pandemic.

“The pandemic has been incredibly hard on the residents of Southern Nevada,” Clark County Commission Chairwoman Marilyn Kirkpatrick said. “Our families are struggling, and they shouldn’t have to choose between putting food on the table and paying their power bills. This effort will provide real help to the families who need it most.”

Nevada’s power company is lifting a self-imposed moratorium on collections and power shutoffs in the coming weeks. Overdue customers who haven’t told NV Energy that they are financially affected by the pandemic could be subject to shutoffs starting Oct. 22, according to the company, which will also resume collecting on bills from shutoff-exempted customers in November, although it may “adjust this timing if needed.”

NV Energy told a regulatory body that 68,282 of its residential and small commercial customers were late on their payments as of Aug. 20, with nearly half at least 90 days overdue. At that time, the company had $29.5 million in arrears compared with $6.8 million at the same time last year.

Nevada suspends practice of taking money from inmates who owe restitution


NEVADA STOPS TAKING INMATES FUNDS FOR RESTITUTION

State officials on Thursday temporarily stopped the Department of Corrections from using a victims’ bill of rights law to take up to 80 percent of money sent by families to some prisoners.

During the Board of State Prison Commissioners meeting, Gov. Steve Sisolak, Attorney General Aaron Ford and Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske voted to suspend the policy put forth in September by Department of Corrections director Charles Daniels.

The director was able to create the policy before the board voted on it. The department used Marsy’s Law as an “excuse” to take the majority of money that prisoners’ families are sending them, Nicholas Shepack, a policy fellow with the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, said in a phone interview Wednesday. The money is being taken from prisoners who owe restitution.

“Marsy’s Law doesn’t actually require what they’re doing,” Shepack said.

In November 2018, voters approved Marsy’s Law as an amendment to the Nevada Constitution. The law is meant to provide rights for crime victims, including the right to full and timely restitution. Read more in the article below:
