Tara Lipinski shot to fame in 1998 when she became the youngest Olympic gold medalist in figure skating history. But this early success never demotivated her.

Instead, Lipinski found success after the Olympics skating professionally on tour and is currently a figure skating analyst for NBC Sports. Even after stepping off the ice for the last time, the same factors that drove her to success in figure skating have helped her in her professional career, Lipinski told CNBC Make It.

“I’m competitive. There’s really no way around it,” Lipinski said. “I like to succeed and I like to figure things out. I find that when you do it – even if it’s not always successful – the process of getting there is exciting and you never know what’s going to happen. “

The 39-year-old says she likes to “pick out impossible things to do” and see if she can accomplish them. She also likes to have an internal “competition” between her and her goal.

“I don’t think I could wake up and just be happy without having something to work towards,” she says. “It’s fun, even if it doesn’t always go your way.”

Lipinski says she decided she wanted to be a commentator in the late 2000s while watching the world championships on TV, knowing full well there were other commentators like Peggy Fleming and Scott Hamilton who were already there. established “in their positions for more than 20 years”. “

But she went anyway. “Why I ever thought that was something that was going to be my next goal is beyond me,” she says. “I knew very well that it might not happen. But I’ve been commentating since 2009, 2010.

Cleveland Clinic and City of Cleveland Announce Donation to Lead the Safe Cleveland Coalition https://atriunfar.net/cleveland-clinic-and-city-of-cleveland-announce-donation-to-lead-the-safe-cleveland-coalition/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 21:45:39 +0000 https://atriunfar.net/cleveland-clinic-and-city-of-cleveland-announce-donation-to-lead-the-safe-cleveland-coalition/ January 13, 2022 Cleveland (Thursday, January 13, 2022) – Today, Mayor Justin Bibb, Chairman of the Board Blaine A.

January 13, 2022

Cleveland (Thursday, January 13, 2022) – Today, Mayor Justin Bibb, Chairman of the Board Blaine A. Griffin, CEO and President of the Cleveland Clinic, Tom Mihaljevic, MD, and August Napoli, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Cleveland and member of the steering committee of the Lead Safe Coalition made a major funding announcement to ensure Cleveland homes are lead-free.

The Cleveland Clinic is providing $50 million over five years to the Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition and the city, with board approval, is providing $17 million over two years from American Rescue Plan Act funds to the coalition.

In July 2019, the Cleveland City Council passed the Lead Safe Certification Act to address lead poisoning in children and Cleveland’s aging housing stock. Now a national model, the law requires all residential rental units built before 1978 to be proactively certified as lead-safe by March 1, 2023.

The Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition is a public-private partnership with over 500 members representing more than 120 organizations with the same common goal: to ensure that no child is poisoned by lead. Through its Lead Safe Home Fund, the Coalition provides homeowners with loans, grants and incentives to secure lead properties and help them obtain the necessary certificates. They also train residents and others to inspect and remove lead from homes. The Lead Safe Home Fund assists, educates and engages families, homeowners and landlords through the Lead Safe Resource Center.

To date, the coalition has raised approximately $47.3 million for the Lead Safe Home Fund. Today’s announcement by the City and Clinic of Cleveland will bring the Fund to approximately $115 million, enough funding to ensure that all rental homes built before 1978 are lead-safe, as well as expand its work to deal more quickly, completely and definitively with the impact of lead. poisoning in Cleveland. The additional funding will now allow the Coalition to reach homeowners more deeply, help families facing displacement due to lead poisoning, create a national lead-free childcare model, improve lead screening and testing rates, train additional lead-free workers, and address other health issues. concerns about Cleveland’s housing stock.

“By protecting the health and future of our children, we are protecting the health and future of Cleveland,” Mayor Bibb said. “This is an example of what we can accomplish through the power of collaboration and this investment is one more step in helping Cleveland become a safer, healthier and more equitable city.”

When the legislation was passed, Council Speaker Griffin noted that it would have to be a community effort and that the city of Cleveland could not do it alone. And unfortunately, the pandemic has impacted efforts, particularly landlords and renters, to ensure all rental homes have lead safe certificates by 2023. With a major injection of funding, the effort will be intensified and expanded.

“My conversations with Dr. Mihaljevic began when he came to Cleveland to run the clinic,” Advisor Griffin said. “He understood what the clinic meant to the Fairfax neighborhood and he understood how lead poisoned children bring these neurological impairments into adulthood.”

Nearly 90% of Cleveland’s homes were built before 1978, the year residential lead paint was banned. Lead poisoning is a public health crisis with a housing solution. That’s why the city, Cuyahoga County, the State of Ohio, foundations, hospitals, private sector companies and more have contributed to the Lead Safe Home Fund.

“United Way and the entire Lead Safe Cleveland Coalition have done a wonderful job of making Cleveland rentals safe and the city has supported the work of the coalition. I’m proud that we’re doing more to support it,” Board Chairman Griffin said. “I cannot thank the Cleveland Clinic enough for the significant funding they provide. Being able to provide additional support to landlords is vital for the city and will help address the issue of housing instability. Funding will be transformational. Now the hard work begins.

In becoming President and CEO of Cleveland Clinic in 2017, Tom Mihaljevic, MD, pledged that Cleveland Clinic would do its part to create healthy communities. In 2022, the health system makes the prevention of lead poisoning its first community priority.

“This effort is essential because prevention is the only effective approach. There is no cure and no way to reverse the damage caused by lead poisoning once it is done,” said Dr. Mihaljevic. “I want Cleveland to be safe for all children, and I know that’s a problem we can solve. Our communities can only be safe and healthy when every person has the opportunity to live in a safe and healthy home.

On behalf of the Coalition, United Way of Greater Cleveland will serve as steward for Cleveland Clinic’s investment in the Lead Safe Home Fund. The coalition will also provide an annual report sharing progress toward building a safe Cleveland.

“Every day, four children in Cleveland are poisoned by lead, robbing them of the ability to reach their full potential,” said Napoli, “United Way of Greater Cleveland knows that the factors that keep people in poverty include the access to affordable, stable and secure housing.” He continues, “As a trusted partner, we are honored to manage the Cleveland Clinic’s historic investment in the community. It is a remarkable example of the power of collaboration between government, business and community leaders and demonstrates what can happen when a community comes together to solve problems that were once considered insurmountable.

Frustrated by partisan deadlocks in Washington, California’s predominantly Democratic legislature will begin debating on Tuesday whether to create its own universal health care system – a move that will test how far progressive politicians in the state are willing to go. Keep their campaign promises. Government-funded health care for all has been at the heart of California political rhetoric for decades. Gov. Gavin Newsom vowed to do so when he ran for governor in 2018, and voters elected him in a landslide. But that hasn’t been easily accomplished in the country’s most populous state, where nearly half of the people pay for work health insurance. In 1994, voters overwhelmingly rejected a voting initiative that would have created a universal health care system. Another attempt was passed by the state Senate in 2017, but it never got a vote in the state assembly. This year, the Democrats in the State Assembly are trying again with a new strategy. First, they want to pass a bill that creates a universal health care system and sets the rules. Then they want to ask voters to approve a big tax hike to pay off all of it. The plan, which would require voter approval, would raise taxes for businesses and individuals who earn at least $ 149,509 a year. The California Taxpayers Association, which opposes the plan, estimates it would raise taxes by about $ 163 billion per year. “If we can agree on a policy and get it passed, then it becomes more real. Then you tell voters what they are voting for. It’s really important, ”said Assembly Member Ash Kalra, a Democrat from San José who made the proposal. Questions about how to pay for a universal health care system have doomed previous plans. California’s 1994 proposal was also based on a tax on employers and individuals, and it failed after strong opposition from the insurance industry. Insurers, doctors and business groups are once again lining up to oppose the latest proposal, arguing it would cost too much and limit people’s choices. It expanded the state’s Medicaid program to cover low-income people 26 and under and 50 and over, regardless of their immigration status. Total cost of $ 2.7 billion per year. Newsom reiterated his support for a universal health care system on Monday, but declined to say whether he supported the plan in the legislature because he said he had not read it. When asked if he had “given up” on a universal health care system in California, Newsom said that a commission he founded was examining such a system and how much it would cost. He also said he was working with President Joe Biden’s administration on the “flexibility” needed for California to implement such a system. manifest the ideal. It’s hard work, “he said.” It’s one thing to say. It’s another thing to do. And, with respect, there are many different ways to reach the goal. “On Tuesday, the Assembly Health Committee is due to debate the bill that would create the universal health care system. They should not be debating the bill that would pay for it. But opponents of the plan will likely still highlight the cost. “At the health committee, I look forward to a solid discussion of the impacts of socialized medicine in California, including: how much tax will go up on the classroom. average, ”Republican Assembly Leader Marie Waldron said.

Government-funded healthcare for all has been a staple of California political rhetoric for decades. Gov. Gavin Newsom vowed to do so when he ran for governor in 2018, and voters elected him in a landslide.

But it hasn’t been easy to accomplish in the country’s most populous state, where nearly half of the people pay for private health insurance through their jobs. In 1994, voters overwhelmingly rejected a voting initiative that would have created a universal health care system. Another attempt was passed by the state Senate in 2017, but it never got a vote in the state assembly.

Questions about how to pay for a universal health care system have doomed previous plans. In 2011, Vermont adopted the nation’s first universal healthcare system. But state officials abandoned him three years later because they said they couldn’t afford to pay him.

California’s 1994 proposal was also based on a tax on employers and individuals, and it failed after strong opposition from the insurance industry. Insurers, doctors and business groups are once again lining up to oppose the latest proposal, arguing it would cost too much and limit people’s choices.

During his first three years in office, Newsom focused more on ensuring that everyone in California has health insurance. It expanded the state’s Medicaid program to cover low-income people 26 and under and 50 and over, regardless of their immigration status. On Monday, he offered to cover everyone at a potential cost of $ 2.7 billion per year.

Newsom reiterated his support for a universal health care system on Monday, but declined to say whether he supported the plan in the legislature because he said he had not read it.

He also said he was working with President Joe Biden’s administration on the “flexibility” needed for California to implement such a system.

“The difference here is when you are in a position of responsibility, you have to apply, you have to demonstrate the ideal. It’s hard work, “he said.” It’s one thing to say. It’s another thing to do. And, with respect, there are many different ways to reach the goal. “

On Tuesday, the Assembly’s health committee is due to debate the bill that would create the universal health system. They are not expected to debate the bill that would pay for it. But opponents of the plan will likely further stress the cost.

“In the Health Committee, I look forward to a solid discussion of the impacts of socialized medicine in California, including: how many taxes will rise on the middle class,” said the Republican Assembly leader Marie Waldron.

Donald Robinson, one of Detroit’s first black firefighters and the city’s first black fire marshal, has died. He was 89 years old.

Robinson died on Jan.6 at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, where he was admitted after falling ill on Dec.22, his daughter, Donna Robinson Milhouse, a judge of the 36th District Court, said.

Milhouse described his father as a hard worker who was dedicated to his family, loved the arts, and was a longtime champion for the city of Detroit.

“He loved his family and always said it and showed it,” said Milhouse, the eldest of Robinson’s three children. “As a father he supported whatever we wanted to do and he never saw limits to what we could accomplish. He also echoed this sentiment in his way of seeing art and his city. He really appreciated the beauty of the things around him and he didn’t approve of the labels, especially the negative labels on Detroit.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – One story we’ve been following has come full circle. Tony Short and Hazem Amiry, who once fought together in Afghanistan, were reunited on US soil on Friday evening.

Amiry was greeted by southern Arizona veterans and their families at Tucson International Airport. The crowd cheered and waved signs as he descended the escalator. Amiry then shook hands with Short, and the two kissed for the first time in seven years.

“I don’t know how to explain when I saw him,” Amiry said. “I am very happy.”

For Operation 22 Restore Hope, it was mission accomplished!

“It’s long overdue,” said Short.

Short served in the US Air Force for 22 years. In 2014, he was deployed to Afghanistan where he met Amiry.

“On January 29, 2015, we had an insider attack,” said Short. “If it hadn’t been for him and the relationship we actually built and our communication between us, I would say it unfortunately would have been a lot worse.”

So when Kabul fell and Short had the chance to return the favor, he did. With the help of Operation 22, a nonprofit organization that supports military veterans and first responders with PTSD, Short was able to bring Amiry to Old Pueblo.

“In fact, we eliminated about 15 Taliban in what we considered to be internal threats. So, yeah, I think the Taliban would have been looking for him, ”Short said.

Amiry, his wife and their five children; aged 10 months to 16 years old, will make Tucson their new home.

“It’s like leaving your whole life behind,” Short said. “And you show up with nothing but the clothes on your back.”

An Air Force widow recently donated her husband’s car to the family, and Automotive Diesel and Performance is providing free labor to fix it. Operation 22 is also collecting household items and monetary donations to help them get back on their feet.

“It gives me chills to know that he will take the oath of an American citizen as we take the oath to be a serviceman and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America,” said Mark Lacy, founder of the United States of America. southern Arizona. Musicians for Healing and Operation 22. “He’s going to be us; it will bleed red, white and blue. He will still have ties to his native country, but he will be an American citizen, as will his family. I just hope the community of Tucson embraces him and his family the same way they have embraced others.

Amiry’s family will join him as soon as he finds accommodation. He hasn’t seen them for five months. To help the Amiry family, click HERE.

Lawrence Tech’s annual Robofest Robotics Competition will return to in-person events for its 2022 competitive season. // Courtesy of Lawrence Tech

The Lawrence Technological University Robofest Robotics Competition in Southfield will return to in-person events for its 2022 competitive season, leading up to the Robofest World Championships being held on campus from May 12-14, 2022.

Teachers, students and volunteers from around the world kicked off the 23e season with a Zoom call on December 8 when the environmental theme for the 2022 competition was announced.

Robofest will offer seven different competitions for 2022. The most popular, the Robofest Game, changes every year. This year’s challenge is called OceanBots. The robots must save objects representing “turtles” and place them in an area on a game table, while moving other objects representing “trash cans” to another location. They must also place two of the “turtles” on board the robot and maneuver around the “stakes” placed on the game table.

Other competitions will include:

  • Exhibition, in which students are free to imagine any task that a robot can do, and then design a robot to do it. Presentations are limited to four minutes and students must provide a video of their robot before the competition so that the judges can formulate questions.
  • RoboArts, which is similar to Exhibition, but the robots should focus on the visual and performing arts.
  • RoboMed, a competition of intelligent and interactive biomedical robots and medical devices with an entrepreneurial spirit encouraged.
  • Unknown Mission Challenge, in which students must design and program robots to accomplish a task they will not be told about until competition day. The robot must be completely disassembled at the start of the competition.
  • BottleSumo, in which students compete to be the first robot to push a water bottle – or the opposing robot – off a table.
  • RoboParade, in which students build and decorate robots to impress the judges during a parade focused on a common theme. This year’s theme is “Preserving our natural resources”.

Team registration opened on December 17th. The maximum team size is three for the BottleSumo, four for the Unknown Mission Challenge, and five for all other events. Regional competitions will be staged around the world in the first months of 2022, with the winners qualifying for the World Championships at LTU.

There will also be a Second Chance competition at LTU in April to qualify for the World Championships. Online competition options are also available. Students compete in the junior (grades 5-8) and senior (grades 9-12) categories, with the exception of RoboMed, which also has a college division.

All Robofest robots must be completely autonomous in performing their tasks, and no adult assistance is allowed in competitions. Robofest is an affordable robotics competition, with an entry fee of $ 75 and robot kits starting around $ 400.

Robofest participants are eligible for a scholarship of $ 3,000 per year over four years at LTU.

More than 30,000 students from all over the world have participated in Robofest since 1999. For more information, visit here.

At 4 p.m. on September 11, 2020, I had my last round of chemotherapy for diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

To be clear, I refused to call it “cancer”. I decided that I had been diagnosed with unwanted guests and they didn’t know which house they had entered.

Of course, this was important when the treatment was over and there was a flood of emotions.

We had done it; went through what most described as treatment that was like hell on earth. No more hair loss. No more nausea or general discomfort.

Michelle Maricic is pictured with her yellow lab, Buddy.  After serious health issues, Maricic is determined to give it back and help others, and Buddy is trained as a therapy puppy to help him achieve that goal.

I should probably step back a bit and explain that I had been an accomplished athlete and competitive runner. The chemo and its effects were both physically and mentally destructive for me.

So, one beautiful sunny morning in early 2020, I was on an eight mile run when I felt a pinch in my abdomen.

I thought it was a urinary tract infection. Maybe gallstones. Of course, nothing very serious.

It turned out I was wrong.

A shocking turn of events

Doctors said I had several tumors – four the size of tennis balls – in my abdomen that were starting to crush vital organs. I needed immediate surgery.

Mikel Arteta says it is impossible to accomplish both protecting the well-being of players and ensuring the integrity of the competition during the holiday season amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

A series of postponements over the holiday season has brought to light the dense game schedule during the holiday season, and Arteta says it is impossible to protect both the well-being of players and the integrity of the competition.

“We had a managers meeting where we tried to expose our feelings and the situation but the decisions are already made, so now we are not going to change that,” Arteta began.

“I basically said that we were discussing two things, namely the well-being of the players and the integrity of the competition.

In this situation, I think we are wasting our time trying to accomplish both, because then people say you have to use common sense, and common sense again in this situation doesn’t work.

“So whether we change the rules, whether we change the testing system (Covid-19), we change everything, we change or we can’t keep doing it, trying to achieve those two things, because that’s is simply impossible. “

Arteta is not the only manager to bemoan the heavy workload demanded from the players, Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp have spoken in recent days.

It’s a ridiculous schedule, ”Leicester boss Rodgers said.

“We all know the players aren’t fully recovered for 72 hours after a game, so for us to play on a Tuesday against Liverpool it’s ridiculous.

However, we have to play the game so there will be hardly any physical labor, just recovery and then we will watch video footage and prepare.

Klopp said the Premier League’s reluctance to reintroduce the rule allowing five substitutes has only made the problem worse.

“We wanted to play Boxing Day, we could have played Boxing Day without any problem,” Klopp said.

“But then playing the 26th and 28th just isn’t right. I think you can work out some solutions for that. It’s not that hard to play in a slightly different way, 26th (then) 29th, where is the problem, some teams are doing it. “

“[This] is the best league in the world, the most intense league in the world is the only league in Europe and maybe the world, I don’t know, we still have three substitutes. “
