Back to school: The CDC wants you to put this in your kid’s backpack this year

Back to school season is officially here, and federal health officials are recommending parents and caregivers to take an extra step to ensure their child’s safety.

‘BACK TO SCHOOL’ ADVICE FROM IOWA SENIOR CITIZENS GOES VIRAL

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends placing a “backpack emergency card” in your child’s backpack. The card should include the child’s name, date of birth and contact information for their parent or guardian. Additionally, it should provide an out-of-town contact and detail any of the child’s special needs or medical conditions – such as allergies – in case of an emergency situation.

“You know how easily books and papers get lost or destroyed in your child’s backpack, so make sure that their emergency card can withstand the wear and tear. Consider laminating their emergency card and picking a secure place in their backpack where their card can be quickly and easily located,” the CDC recommends.

TEXAS SCHOOL OFFERING ‘ADULTING 101’ TO TEACH STUDENTS ‘HOW TO SURVIVE’

Speaking of back to school, 63 percent of moms feel extra stress at the beginning of the school year, according to a recent survey. This is especially true for those who have young children, surveyors found.

Michael Waltrip’s ‘Blink of an Eye’ is the untold story of day Dale Earnhardt Sr. died

When NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip woke up on the morning of February 18, 2001 – the morning of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in Florida – he felt different.

Charlotte Motor Speedway in the early 90s. Benny Parsons interviews Dale Earnhardt Sr and Michael Waltrip. (Michael Waltrip)

“Some mornings I wake up and I can’t remember where I put my keys, but I remember every detail of that day vividly. I told my wife that they were not beating me that day, even though I had never won a NASCAR Cup race. Nobody had ever lost 462 races and then just won,” Waltrip told Fox News. “But Dale Earnhardt Sr. had told me I had the ability, and that day, I knew I would.”

At that point in his tumultuous career, Waltrip had completed some 462 Cup races – and failed to cross the line first in each and every one of them – branding him with the gong of NASCAR’s longest-ever losing streak. But under the Florida sun on the legendary racetrack, Earnhardt blocked the field of 40 cars to allow Waltrip a much-coveted victory.

“With 30 laps to go, I took the lead for the first time. Behind me was his son Dale Earnhardt Jr., and behind him was Dale Sr., the three of us working together,” Waltrip recalled. “And then crossing the line and taking that checkered flag – the emotion I felt was relief.”

It was a unique friendship amid the vicious arena of professional racecar driving. The celebration would be short-lived. Earnhardt Sr. crashed on the last lap.

New documentary to be released this month

“I’m a Christian and I believe in angels and God. I believe those angels took me straight to Victory Lane and I didn’t stop at the crash. I was waiting for Dale to walk through the gate but he didn’t. I knew something was wrong,” Waltrip said. “No one had answers. Half an hour later, my publicist delivered me the ultimate news.”

Waltrip’s story and his bond as the chronic underdog with the feared and famed Earnhardt — known in the sport as “The Intimidator” — is the subject of a new documentary, “Blink of an Eye,” directed by Paul Taublieb.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. in an interview for the new documentary

“I didn’t want this to be just a race car movie, it’s a movie about what happens when somebody really believes in you,” he said. “It’s an untold story, a marvelous story. Dale Earnhardt Sr. was the Michael Jordan or the Brad Pitt of the racecar world. When you deal with a real person and their family, there is a sense of responsibility.”

And while Earnhardt was a deeply private person, Taublieb hopes audiences see the many layers beneath his exterior as a ruthless competitor staring down the finish line.

“Dale had a heart of gold and truly cared about other people,” he surmised. “And Michael taught me as a filmmaker to own your emotions, be raw and share who you are. Some might think he was a loser, but he definitely was not.”

And for Waltrip, telling his story is a catharsis bound by faith and belief in overcoming adversity.

“For a few months after that Daytona, I was just going through the motions,” he added. “Then I came out of it, and I went back to Daytona to win.”

Debra Messing responds to Trump’s Twitter jab with a call for gun control: ‘Now that I have your attention’

Westlake Legal Group debra-messing-donald-trump-reuters-ap Debra Messing responds to Trump's Twitter jab with a call for gun control: 'Now that I have your attention' Tyler McCarthy fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/debra-messing fox-news/entertainment/genres/viral fox-news/entertainment/events/feud fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 701475c1-62c8-5136-9007-11d81925c58c

After getting some Twitter attention from President Trump, actress Debra Messing seized the opportunity to call on him to push for gun control.

The “Will & Grace” star goaded a response out of Trump after a series of controversial tweets in which she agreed with an Alabama church’s assertion that African-American supporters of the president are mentally ill. She also joined her co-star Eric McCormack in calling on The Hollywood Reporter to publish the list of attendees to an upcoming fundraiser for Trump’s reelection campaign in Beverly Hills.

She used the attention to tweet on Monday: “Now that I know I have your attention @realDonaldTrump, please read this thread— a PARTIAL list of souls lost to preventable,devastating gun violence. America wants universal background checks. The majority of Americans want assault weapons ban. Take Action and I’ll call you Sir.”

CELEBRITIES CALL FOR GUN CONTROL AFTER TEXAS SHOOTING: ‘WE HAVE A CRISIS HERE’

Messing’s reply came with a retweet that listed some of the more high-profile mass shootings that have occurred in the U.S. in recent years, including the Las Vegas attack that killed 59 people in 2017, the Orlando nightclub shooting that killed 49 people in 2016 and the Newtown, Conn., shooting that left 26 dead, including 20 small children.

‘SEINFELD’ STAR JOHN O’HURLEY SLAMS ‘WILL & GRACE’ STARS FOR ‘LUNACY’ OVER TRUMP COMMENTS

Messing initially caught Trump’s eye after calling for a list of his supporters in Beverly Hills over the weekend.

“Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know,” she tweeted on Saturday.

The note gained a response from the president, who took to the social media site to write: “I have not forgotten that when it was announced that I was going to do The Apprentice, and when it then became a big hit, helping NBC’s failed lineup greatly, @DebraMessing came up to me at an Upfront & profusely thanked me, even calling me ‘Sir.’ How times have changed!”

This is hardly the first time the 51-year-old star has been provocative with her tweets about gun violence. She previously received backlash after endorsing a tweet that suggested that, if she were to die as a result of gun violence, she wanted her ashes thrown into Sen. Mitch McConnell’s and former NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch’s eyes while “still smoldering.”

Steve Hilton: Trump is more pro-worker than any previous Republican president. Here’s why

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6082419010001_6082409858001-vs Steve Hilton: Trump is more pro-worker than any previous Republican president. Here's why Steve Hilton fox-news/us/economy/jobs fox-news/us/economy fox-news/shows/the-next-revolution fox-news/politics/executive/economic-policy fox-news/politics/executive fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc b3aa022e-7cf0-5865-b206-2dd12a336892 article

President Trump has laid out a simple strategy.

“Our economic policy can be summed up in three simple, but beautiful words: jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said at a rally in Greenville, N.C. in July. “We’ve created six million new jobs since Election Day. If I would’ve said that, no one would have believed it. If I would’ve said that, fake news would have said, ‘He’s exaggerating.’”

The first step in bringing jobs back was to get the economy moving after the years of stagnation under the anti-business policies of President Obama and the Democrats. Almost immediately after President Trump was elected, his pro-enterprise agenda led to confidence rising, investments booming, and growth returning to levels that the experts said we’d never see again.
 
Now that formula – lower taxes and less regulation – is pretty standard conservative policy. What’s different about President Trump is that he is a populist. He is pro-worker in a way that we haven’t seen before from a Republican president.

TRUMP: LABOR UNION CHIEF ‘LIKES WHAT WE ARE DOING UNTIL THE CAMERAS GO ON’

Establishment Republicans became slaves to a laissez-faire ideology that favored the financial sector and the coastal knowledge economy over manufacturing and the heartland. They adopted a pro-donor agenda of open borders and free trade at any price. They worshipped the Wall Street wheeler-dealers who said making things in America didn’t matter. Let’s import cheap labor. Who cares what happens to American workers and their communities when manufacturing moves to Mexico and China?

Well, President Trump does care. He said no to the one-sided trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), ripping them up or renegotiating them. He said no to open borders, building the wall, enforcing immigration laws, and pushing for a merit-based system. He prioritized manufacturing after years of neglect, even intervening with individual companies, to the pearl-clutching horror of the free-market zealots.

But look at the results. Since 2016, there’s been a massive turnaround. Last year’s gain of 264,000 manufacturing jobs was the highest since 1997. Overall, the latest jobs report showed an increase of 164,000, bringing the labor force to almost 163 million — a record high.
 
With President Trump, we’ve seen the lowest unemployment in 50 years and the lowest on record for African-American and Hispanic workers. But as I pointed out last week, even with our historically low unemployment, there are 6.1 million unemployed Americans still looking for work. Another 4 million Americans are in part-time jobs but want full-time positions, and a further, 1.5 million want and are available for work but have become disheartened and stopped looking. That’s over 11 million Americans who could be doing full-time jobs but are not.

We see all this in the labor force participation rate — it plummeted after the Great Recession. And while some progress has been made, there’s still a long way to go before every working-age American who can work is actually working.

More from Opinion

But here too, President Trump is doing something different and new, fighting for the American worker, with Ivanka Trump’s massively under-appreciated workforce development initiative. It was launched with an executive order last July and a year on, the results have been spectacular.

Over 300 companies and associations have gotten involved, along with 37 governors to make change happen at the state level. But the real point is the outcome.

Remember that number — 11 million Americans who aren’t in full-time work but could be? Well, Ivanka has been able to persuade the private sector to create over 13 million new training opportunities for American workers and students, including, most significantly, 1.2 million from the National Association of Manufacturers.

When you put all this together — the pro-growth tax cuts and deregulation, the specific help for workers to re-train, the tariffs that are encouraging manufacturing to come back to America, along with President Trump’s tough approach on immigration — not just controlling illegal immigration at the southern border but proposing a big shake-up of legal immigration to make it merit-based,  it adds up to the most ambitious pro-worker policy agenda this country has ever seen.
 
The president promised “jobs jobs jobs” — and that is exactly what he is delivering.

Brazilian leader Jair Bolsonaro to skip Amazon fires summit due to surgery

Brazil’s leader may be eager to speak about the ongoing Amazon fires that have drawn the world’s attention, but he will have to wait, because surgery is forcing him to skip the summit of regional leaders called for this weekend to discuss the matter.

An aide for President Jair Bolsonaro revealed that the far-right leader would undergo surgery to treat a hernia, his fourth operation since he was stabbed in the stomach during the presidential campaign in 2018.

The spokesman said Brazil may send a representative in Bolsonaro’s place or ask for the summit – scheduled for Friday in Colombia – to be postponed.

FLASHBACK: JAIR BOLSONARO, BRAZILIAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, STABBED DURING EVENT, SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY: REPORTS

Bolsonaro has drawn intense domestic and international criticism for his reaction to the ongoing fires raging in parts of the Amazon rainforest, with environmentalists blaming his government’s approach to environmental issues and its pro-business agenda.

The Brazilian Amazon saw more than 30,900 fires in the month of August, the highest for the month since 2010, according to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research.

Bolsonaro told reporters in Brasilia on Monday that he was eager to speak about the fires at the next U.N. General Assembly later this month. He said he wanted to speak “with patriotism” about the Amazon, a region he said was ignored by previous administrations.

“I will not accept alms from any country in the world under the pretext of preserving the Amazon when it is being divided into lots and sold,” the far-right president said.

BRAZIL’S TOURISM AMBASSADOR THREATENS TO ‘CHOKE’ MACRON, SAYS HE IS ‘SLEEPING WITH A DRAGON’

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres last week suggested holding a meeting to address the fires.

The fires also seem to be eroding Bolsonaro’s popularity at home.

Polling institute Datafolha reported Monday that 38 percent of Brazilians disapproved of the government’s actions – the worst since coming to power on Jan. 1 – with just 29 percent of the population backing it.

Datafolha interviewed 2,878 people Aug. 29-Aug.30; the survey has a 2-percentage point margin of error.

Bolsonaro, who has accused other nations of colonialism for offering $40 million to help tackle the fires, was elected to the presidency in October 2018, a month after he was stabbed in the abdomen during a campaign rally.

His surgery is scheduled for Sunday and he must start a liquid diet on Friday – the date of the regional conference. Doctors said he would need 10 days of rest after the surgery, the BBC reported.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

South African priest accidentally shoots self through face with own speargun

A South African priest shot who himself through his head with his own speargun while spearfishing off the KwaZulu-Natal coast Friday has miraculously survived the accident and is recovering, reports said.

Rev. Connie Hallowell’s harrowing experience was captured in graphic photographs published in local and international news reports. Bleeding heavily from his head, Hallowell appeared surrounded by beachgoers as he sat on a beach with the spear still piercing through his face.

GRAPHIC PHOTOS: MAN SURVIVES HORROR INJURY AFTER BEING IMPALED BY 2.5-FOOT IRON SPIKE

The 48-year-old told the Times of London he had been about 65 feet offshore of the coastal town of Scottsburgh when he set the speargun down on the seabed and it accidentally fired. He said the 6.5-foot-long spear penetrated his face below his right eye and out through his left ear.

WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTOS

Hallowell managed to drag himself onto the shore where beachgoers and lifeguards rushed to stabilize him, the paper reported. He was then airlifted to a hospital to undergo surgery.

“It’s amazing that I am here at all,” he told the paper.

Despite the spear plunging so close to his eye sockets, Hallowell kept his vision in both eyes, the South Coast Herald reported.

Sitting up in his hospital bed for a brief interview with the Herald, Hallowell described his survival as “miraculous” and thanked people for their kind words and prayers.

“I’m doing very, very well,” he said. “I’m good, I’m recovering, looking forward to seeing you guys soon.”

Salmonella outbreak connected to backyard poultry sickens more than 1,000 across 49 states: CDC

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6014009438001_6014008273001-vs Salmonella outbreak connected to backyard poultry sickens more than 1,000 across 49 states: CDC Madeline Farber fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/ohio fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox news fnc/health fnc e554d6c5-1d00-520e-88f8-085363f6e85f article

More than 1,000 people have been sickened by a salmonella outbreak linked to backyard poultry, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an update late last week.

The CDC on Friday announced a total of 1,003 people have been sickened by the outbreak across 49 states — an increase of 235 people since the federal health agency last issued an update in July. At least two people have died and 175 have been hospitalized due to the illness.

As of Friday, 73 people in Ohio were sickened — the most of any state where cases have been reported. Tennessee followed closely behind with 67 cases.

DRUG-RESISTANT SALMONELLA LINKED TO SOFT CHEESE, BEEF SICKENS HUNDREDS: CDC

“Of 850 ill people with age information available, 192 are children younger than 5 years,” the CDC said, adding “epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicate that contact with backyard poultry, such as chicks and ducklings, from multiple hatcheries, are the likely source of these outbreaks.”

Many people reported buying chicks and ducklings from agricultural stores, websites, and hatcheries prior to becoming ill.

“Six of the outbreak strains making people sick have been identified in samples collected from backyard poultry environments at people’s homes in California, Minnesota, and Ohio and from poultry environments at retail stores in Michigan and Oregon,” said the agency.

Symptoms of salmonella usually develop 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria, with most people developing diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment.

“In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized,” according to the CDC. “Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other places in the body.”

Federal health officials say that children younger than 5 years of age, pregnant women, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The CDC estimates salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths in the U.S. every year.

Food is the source for about 1 million of those illnesses.

AMID SALMONELLA OUTBREAK, CDC WARNS: DON’T ‘KISS OR SNUGGLE’ CHICKENS

In May, when 52 people were affected by the outbreak, the CDC warned to not “kiss or snuggle” chickens. It also issued a list of precautions the public should take when handling the animals to avoid contracting the illness, such as always washing your hands after handling a backyard flock and not letting the birds inside the home — especially in areas where food is prepared.

The CDC also said at the time that children younger than 5 or adults over 65 should avoid handling “chicks, ducklings, or other poultry” altogether.

We’ve all been there,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior…”

The 36-year-old, who is engaged to Kenneth Petty, went on to say she was involved in an abusive relationship of her own, recalling, “I rlly [sic] used to think love had to hurt.”
