Trump says coronavirus vaccine won’t be delivered to New York right away

first_img“He doesn’t trust where the vaccine is coming from,” Trump added. “These are coming from the greatest companies anywhere in the world, greatest labs in the world, but he doesn’t trust the fact that it’s this White House, this administration, so we won’t be delivering it to New York until we have authorization to do so and that pains me to say that.”In response, a senior advisor to Cuomo said on Twitter that the governor “is fighting to ensure the communities hit hardest by COVID get the vaccine.”Trump “has failed with his pandemic response, lied to Americans about how bad it was when he knew otherwise & was fired by voters for his incompetence,” Rich Azzopardi said. – Advertisement – Trump said Friday that it was an “unfortunate mistake” when Pfizer claimed earlier this week that it wasn’t part of Operation Warp Speed. While Pfizer did strike a deal with the U.S. government for vaccine doses in July, the company had been working on a vaccine for the coronavirus long before.This is a developing story. Please check back for updates. – Advertisement – President Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. government would not deliver a coronavirus vaccine to New York if and when one is available.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo “will have to let us know when he’s ready for it because otherwise, we can’t be delivering it to a state that won’t be giving it to its people immediately,” Trump said during a press conference from the White House Rose garden. – Advertisement – Trump’s comments were his first in-person remarks since NBC News and other news outlets projected over the weekend that Joe Biden won the presidential election.Over the past week, the U.S. coronavirus outbreak has worsened, with the nation reporting more than 150,000 new infections Thursday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The seven-day average of daily new cases stands at 131,445, 32% higher than a week ago, according to a CNBC analysis of Hopkins data.On Monday, Pfizer said that the Covid-19 vaccine it developed with German drugmaker BioNTech was 90% effective in a late-stage trial.

NRA has changed its mission over years

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In 1947 when I was 11 years old, I summered at a boys camp in Maine. Part of the program was rifle training and range shooting. The training, which was exciting and beneficial, was part of the NRA Junior program. I qualified for diplomas as marksman, pro-marksman and sharpshooter. This was my first exposure to the NRA, and it was the way the NRA was in 1947.Being from the Poconos in Pennsylvania, I was brought up to be a sportsman and hunter. In high school, I received a used Remington 32-pump deer rifle, which I used hunting with my father and uncle, hunting deer and bear. I joined the U.S. Air Force and trained with the M1 carbine. I then purchased a new Remington 760 pump — as semi-automatics were not allowed in Pennsylvania. The NRA in the 1970s and 1990s got new leadership and turned from a sportsman, hunting, training organization to a political lobby for the gun-manufacturing companies.In Austria, high school graduates receive nine months training in the army handling automatic weapons, but aren’t allowed to keep them in their possession at home. College students must take the nine months training sometime along the way.The NRA isn’t what it used to be and I don’t contribute to them. I urge sportsman/hunters to do the same. I understand that Remington Arms a New York manufacturer in Ilion may have to declare bankruptcy. What a shame. It’s my favorite gun manufacturer.ARNO HIRISClifton ParkMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusControversial solar project goes before Clifton Park Planning BoardHigh-risk COVID exposure reported in Clifton Parklast_img read more

Preparations for 51st Annual Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb underway

first_imgBy Huwmanbeing [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsNewport, In. — The 51st Annual Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb is scheduled for October 5, 6 & 7 as the Newport Lions Club prepares for the annual gathering of antique auto enthusiasts. Hoping to stage another record-setting festival, the Lions will hold the event over the famous 1800-foot-long, 140-foot-high Newport Hill, once a proving ground for early automobile designs.Nearly 300 cars are expected to compete in 31 classes in timed runs over the hill, while some 500 show cars, street rods and street machines are judged alongside classic antique vehicles in nine classes for trophies. Newest additions to the competition are three antique motorcycle classes, limited to side-valve models 1953 and older and grouped by engine displacement.Among early registered competitors is a very rare 1919 Stanley Steamer Touring Car. The last Stanley to run the hill a few years back was driven by company founder E.F. Stanley’s grand-daughter.Practice runs will be held from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday; and from 8 to 10 a.m. Sunday. Opening ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m. Sunday with competition runs starting at 11 a.m.This year’s the festival weekend will begin Friday morning, October 5 as the Flea Market and food concession stands will open all day. That night will feature the “Cruise At The Bottom” cruise-in and a street dance. Also featured Friday will be the annual Gospel Music Jamboree at the Newport Methodist Church, featuring Southern Gospel recording artists The Lesters from St. Louis, Missouri.With the opening of the hill for practice runs at 8 a.m. Saturday, some 300 Flea Market and Swap Meet booths will be open for business, as well as numerous food concessions around the courthouse square. The Lions Club’s pork barbeque will also begin serving Saturday’s helping of hogs cooked for the annual feed. The Big Wheel Races for kids age 3-8 will also be held at noon Saturday, with registration at 11:30 a.m. A Pretty Baby Contest will also be judged at 2 p.m., with prizes presented to the winners following the close of practice runs. Shortly afterward, the annual parade will wind its way through the streets of Newport.The relocation of the Collector Car and Automobilia Auction last year proved successful and it will be held on the Main Street Starting Line following the parade. “Dancing With The Cars, a Cruise-In and Street Dance are scheduled for Saturday evening and the day will be capped off with a huge fireworks display at dusk.The festival will conclude with a giant prize drawing Sunday afternoon, including the Lions Club’s restored raffle vehicle, a 1939 Buick Series 40 Special four-door sedan with the famed Buick Straight-Eight power plant.Special edition souvenirs will be available, including wool pennants, similar to ones sold at the first Lions Club Hill Climb 51 years ago; 2019 Hill Climb photo calendars with more than 100 pictures of cars and festivities; and limited edition steel license plates. Competition drivers will receive a special edition collector hat pin and extras will also be for sale, along with shirts, hats and sweatshirts. Copies of two official history books on the Hill Climb, covering the first Newport Hill Climb in 1909 until today, will be on sale throughout the weekend, along with various other souvenir offerings.The Newport Hill Climb likely began as an “innocent” challenge between two owners of those new-fangled automobiles. While early autos had trouble making it up the crest of the hill, soon topping the 140-foot plus hilltop became common, but still a great struggle on the early gasoline engines. Then it wasn’t just enough to top the hill; you had to be the fastest to climb it.The first Hill Climb was held in 1909 and organized by the businessmen of Newport as a way to capitalize on the interest in climbing the hill. Hill Climbing contests were becoming more common place, and by 1915 the “newness” had worn off, and board-track and other circular racing forms were becoming more popular. The event was rekindled as an antique auto hill climb in the 1960’s and the Lions Club took over sponsorship in 1968.Lions Clubs are an international service organization, which sponsor such projects as the Leader Dog School for the Blind in Rochester, Michigan, cancer research and treatment facilities at the Indiana University Medical Center, eye glass and hearing aid recycling projects, and diabetes awareness programs. Local Lions Clubs also support various other groups and organizations in their home communities.More information on the Newport Antique Auto Hill Climb is available from the Newport Lions Club, Box 398, Newport, IN, 47966, or by calling 765-492-4220.

Wijnaldum’s camp awaits Liverpool on new contract

first_img That means that the Thiago Alcantara speculation is coming from the Bayern Munich man’s camp. TEAMtalk told you last month that Klopp was not interested in a move for Thiago, but the talk from Germany has been non-stop. However, if the Wijnaldum situation does not change, then so might Klopp’s plans. read also:Klopp, Solskjaer made last-minute attempt to sign Osimhen The Dutch midfielder has entered the final 12 months or his deal and there have been no sign of talks over an extension. That in itself is strange for a club whose transfer negotiations have been pretty flawless over the last few years. Gini Wijnaldum’s camp are still waiting for Liverpool to open talks about a new contract at Liverpool, according to Sky Sports. The midfield powerhouse made 35 Premier League starts, scoring four times as the Reds marched to their first top-flight title in 30 years. Although failing to trouble the headline writers and plaudits, Wijnaldum has been integral to Liverpool’s title success. And he is believed to be well-liked by boss Jurgen Klopp after he arrived from Newcastle for £25million in the summer of 2016. In fact, he was one of Klopp’s first significant signings in the summer of 2016. There’s no way that Klopp could replace the six-goal star for that sort of money and, as per the source, they are not actively looking to add to their midfield options.Advertisement Promoted Content7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table Top7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually TrueCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?8 Weird Facts About Coffee That Will Surprise You10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Playing Games For Hours Can Do This To Your Body FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… last_img read more
