Steel Tridents Salvaged from the World Trade Center Honor Victims and Heroes of 9-11

Steel Tridents Salvaged from the World Trade Center Honor Victims and Heroes of 9-11 CITY OF WEEHAWKEN UNVEILS 9/11 MEMORIAL ON HUDSON RIVER WATERFRONT September 9, 2011 Steel Tridents Salvaged from the World Trade Center Honor Victims and Heroes of 9/11 WEEHAWKEN, NJ – The crowd of more than 200 people that gathered on the banks of the Hudson River in Weehawken, N.J. on Wednesday, September 7th, included many important dignitaries, from local mayors to legislators to Attorney General Paula T. Dow. But it was two pieces of steel that served as the center of attention. The massive steel tridents salvaged from the World Trade Center site rest above an infinity pool in Weehawken’s Port Imperial development and stretch majestically skyward, against the backdrop of the Hudson River and New York City skyline. Weehawken Mayor Richard F. Turner unveiled them on Wednesday as part of the city’s official 9/11 memorial. “These steel tridents – two of the 13 that survived the wreckage – will forever symbolize the connection between Weehawken and the World Trade Center,” Mayor Turner said, referencing the five residents who lost their lives in the attacks and the many others who came to the waterfront to help victims who were evacuated from Lower Manhattan. “More than 60,000 people were evacuated to Weehawken on that day. Volunteers brought food and water and came together in a time of need. Most Americans will always be able to look back and remember where they were on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Weehawken residents will remember more clearly where they were that afternoon.” Attorney General Dow spoke on behalf of Governor Chris Christie, praising communities like Weehawken that grew stronger in the face of a tragedy. Other dignitaries, such as U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-13) and State Sen. Brian P. Stack, spoke on behalf of their constituencies. Members of the Weehawken Fire Department, Weehawken Police Department and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey were also on hand. Mayor Turner wound down the ceremony by reading the names of all five Weehawken residents who perished on 9/11. A bell tolled after each name was read and a bagpiper played “Amazing Grace”. The Weehawken High School Marching Band concluded the ceremony on a less somber note with its rendition of “God Bless America”.

Si salir a la calle es posible hágalo! !Go outside if possible do it !!!

Salir si es posible Salir de casa ya no es tan fácil, lo cual puede añadir una sensación de claustrofobia. Especialmente ahora que en muchos países se acerca la primavera y el verano. Aquellos con jardín, terraza, patio o balcón pueden usarlos para tomar aire y hacer ejercicio. “Debe mantenerse un balance entre salud mental y física, siempre atendiendo a las informaciones oficiales que imparten los gobiernos”, comenta Eva Lloyd, profesora de educación preescolar de la Universidad del Este de Londres, en Reino Unido. “Si es seguro salir al parque, las personas deben hacerlo también”, agrega Lloyd. Exit if possible Leaving home is no longer so easy, which can add to a claustrophobic feeling. Especially now that spring and summer are approaching in many countries. Those with a garden, terrace, patio or balcony can use them for air and exercise. "A balance must be maintained between mental and physical health, always taking into account the official information provided by governments," says Eva Lloyd, professor of preschool at East London University, in the United Kingdom. "If it's safe to go out to the park, people should do it too," adds Lloyd.

Arrive to NEW YORK HARBOR US NAVY COMFORT

The USNS Comfort, a Navy hospital ship equipped with 1,000 beds and 12 operating rooms, arrived in New York City Monday as it hopes to ease the strain on area hospitals reeling from the coronavirus pandemic. The intention is that the ship will host non-coronavirus-related patients, freeing up resources at medical centers dealing with the outbreak. New York City rapidly emerged as the U.S. epicenter for the virus. As of Tuesday morning, the coronavirus death toll in the city was marked at 914, which represents more than a quarter of the U.S. death count of 3,170, per the Johns Hopkins coronavirus database. As a result, medical centers around the area are in dire need of more beds. The USNS Comfort should help with that. President Donald Trump said Saturday that beds "will be opened up all over the city," thanks to the assistance provided by the ship. El USNS Comfort, un buque hospital de la Armada equipado con 1,000 camas y 12 quirófanos, llegó a la ciudad de Nueva York el lunes, con la esperanza de aliviar la presión sobre los hospitales del área que se tambalean por la pandemia de coronavirus. La intención es que el barco albergue a pacientes no relacionados con el coronavirus, liberando recursos en los centros médicos que se ocupan del brote. La ciudad de Nueva York emergió rápidamente como el epicentro estadounidense del virus. A partir del martes por la mañana, el número de muertes por coronavirus en la ciudad se marcó en 914, lo que representa más de una cuarta parte del recuento de muertes en Estados Unidos de 3.170, según la base de datos de coronavirus de Johns Hopkins. Como resultado, los centros médicos de la zona necesitan urgentemente más camas. El USNS Comfort debería ayudar con eso. El presidente Donald Trump dijo el sábado que las camas "se abrirán en toda la ciudad", gracias a la asistencia brindada por el barco.

La luz del sol y la infección de la gripe....Sunlight and flu infection

Sunlight and flu infection Placing infected patients in the sun may have helped because it inactivates the influenza virus. [7] It also kills bacteria that cause lung infections and other infections in hospitals. [8] During World War I, military surgeons routinely used sunlight to heal infected wounds. [9] They knew it was a disinfectant. What they didn't know is that an advantage of putting patients in the sun is that they can synthesize vitamin D on their skin if the sunlight is strong enough. This was not discovered until the 1920s. Low levels of vitamin D are now linked to respiratory infections and may increase susceptibility to influenza. [10] In addition, our body's biological rhythms seem to influence how we resist infections [11] New research suggests that they may alter our inflammatory response to the influenza virus [12]. As with vitamin D, at the time of the 1918 pandemic, the important role that sunlight played in synchronizing these rhythms was unknown.
