Jane Goodall takes Ivanka Trump to task after being quoted in the heiress’ new book about working women

Published

on

Primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall had stern words for presidential daughter Ivanka Trump on Tuesday after finding out the heiress and entrepreneur quoted her in a book about working women.

According to CNN Money, Trump’s book Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success, contains Goodall’s famous quote, “What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Goodall said on Tuesday after the book’s release that she did not know that President Donald Trump’s daughter would be using her quote, but offered up a word of warning.

“I sincerely hope she will take the full import of my words to heart. She is in a position to do much good or terrible harm,” Goodall said.

“Legislation that was passed by previous governments to protect wildlife such as the Endangered Species Act, create national monuments and other clean air and water legislation have all been jeopardized by this administration,” continued Goodall. “I hope that Ms. Trump will stand with us to value and cherish our natural world and protect this planet for future generations.”

Goodall, 83, is known throughout the world for her pioneering research into animal communication and is considered the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees. The London-born scientist, author and researcher has been a United Nations “messenger of peace” since 2002.

Since her father’s election, Ivanka Trump has been elevated to the rank of senior White House adviser with a West Wing office, although the nature of her duties is still ill-defined. Many observers of the Trump administration have criticized the first daughter for working in the White House while actively promoting her lifestyle brand including a clothing line and now Women Who Work.

We're all going to know someone who has died of the coronavirus when this is over. The tragic news is all over Facebook and Twitter already. My friend Patricia Bosworth, the actress and biographer, died on Friday of the virus. Everyone has friends and acquaintances who have the virus, family members who have died, favorite musicians or actors and friends of friends who are sick and dying. The virus has taken them from us, but so has Donald Trump with his inaction and lying and childish finger-pointing and failure to take responsibility.

HBO’s Bill Maher returns to rip Trump over the pandemic — and blast his fans who are rallying around ‘the guy who made it worse’

HBO's Bill Maher returned on Friday night via YouTube to blast Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic and took on fans of the president who are rallying around him, calling their response "irrational."

Speaking from what appeared to be his backyard, the "Real Time" host noted that Americans tend to rally around their leaders in times of crisis but that this president is not deserving of support.

"Was the current crisis preventable? " he asked. "Not all of it, of course. But we could have done what South Korea did, their nightmare started the day our's did. But while Trump shut up experts, happy-talked and lied his ass off, South Korea put a strong testing program into place, tracing people, and today they have twenty-0ne times the cases and thirty times fewer deaths."

Here’s what Wall Street doesn’t want you to know about its grip on emergency rooms

Published

on

Doctor Ling Min is the first emergency room doctor to be fired for going public with his concerns about poor hospital emergency room safety practices and shortages of medical supplies and protective gear for health workers.

He won’t be the last.

Like many hospitals in the US, PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center in Bellingham Washington, where Ling Min worked for the past 17 years as an emergency room doctor, has outsourced the management and staffing of its emergency room. So, Min works on-site at the hospital’s ER, but he is employed by a physician staffing firm that runs the ER. These staffing firms are often behind the surprise medical bills for ER services that patients receive after their insurance company has paid the hospital and doctors, but not the excessive out-of-network charges billed by these outside staffing firms.
