Leahy: Appropriations bills on time and on budget

first_imgStatement Of Vice Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)On Fiscal Year 2019 Appropriations Bills“A Path Forward”Senate FloorThursday, September 6, 2018In the last few months, the Senate has achieved record progress in processing appropriations bills.  As we return from the Labor Day weekend, the Senate has already passed 9 of the 12 Appropriations bills by overwhelming margins and the Appropriations Committee has reported the remaining 3 bills with bipartisan support.    The end of the fiscal year is only few short weeks away, but, because of the record pace of our work, there is no reason that we cannot conference all of these bills with the House, and send all nine to the President’s desk before October 1.  That would be quite an accomplishment.  It would show the American people that when it matters, Congress can come together and do the job we were sent here to do.  That includes passing responsible, thoughtful, and well-considered appropriations bills, on time, and on budget.   It is important that we conference all of the bills we have passed in the Senate so far and send them to the President’s desk.  We cannot just pick and choose which ones to advance based on political expediency.  The hard work has been done, we know the issues we need to resolve, and now is the time to bring these bills across the finish line.Minibus # 1 contains the Energy & Water Development bill, the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies bill, and the Legislative Branch Appropriations bill.  It provides much-needed resources for the support and care of our Nation’s veterans and their family members, and it makes critical investments in our country’s water infrastructure and energy programs.  Yesterday, we held a public conference on the first minibus, and I am pleased to report that we have made significant progress. One of the reasons we were successful in moving bills in the Senate is that we have advanced appropriations bills that are free of poison pill policy riders, from the left or the right.  That is the only path to success in the Senate, where we rightfully need 60 votes to advance legislation, and it is the only path to success for conferencing the 3 minibus bills.  I challenge House Republicans to come to terms with that reality.  No one should mistake Democratic cooperation in the Senate for a sign that we will support a conference report that contains poison pills.  We will not. Minibus #2 contains four appropriations bills: the Agriculture, Rural Development and Related Agencies bill, the Interior, Environmental and Related Agencies bill, the Financial Services and General Government bill, and the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill.   The House plans to appoint conferees to this minibus later this afternoon, and I encourage the Senate to follow soon thereafter.  The Agriculture Appropriations bill is a win for farmers, families, and rural communities.  Every state in this Nation has rural communities and farm economies that benefit from these important programs – from clean water programs to investments in rural broadband, from rural housing assistance to agricultural research – this bill touches millions of lives.  In the wake of uncertainty and chaos caused by trade wars and tariffs, our farmers and rural communities deserve better than inaction on appropriations.  Both the House and the Senate have passed their versions of the bill – let’s get to work and send a conference bill to the President. The same goes for the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development bill, which makes critical infrastructure investments across the Nation, which we desperately need.  Improving the Nation’s infrastructure was one of President Trump’s key campaign promises, but instead of proposing realistic solutions, he has criticized the very budget deal that made increases in infrastructure possible, and proposed cutting – not increasing – funding for infrastructure programs in his budget.  Here we have an opportunity to invest in our country and start to address our crumbling bridges and roads.  We cannot and should not kick the can down the road. The Interior bill makes critical investments in programs that help ensure we have clean water to drink and clean air to breathe, and funds our national parks and other public lands.  The Financial Services bill funds regulatory agencies that U.S. citizens rely on to protect them from unfair, unsafe, or fraudulent business practices, like the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Federal Trade Commission.  Congress stands poised to deliver to the American people, but we must get moving.  Leaving these important agencies to limp along in a continuing resolution is both unwise and unnecessary.  We have laid the groundwork to finish these bills; we just need to find the will to do it. That brings me to the Minibus # 3, which contains the Defense Appropriations bill, and the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education bill.  It funds our national security and many of our domestic priorities and demonstrates the importance of the bipartisan budget agreement reached earlier this year.  In this combination of bills, we see the priorities outlined in that agreement, made into real policy to improve the lives of Americans.  As a result of the bipartisan budget deal, the Senate Defense Appropriations bill provides the men and women of our armed forces the resources they need to carry out their missions effectively and safely.  This is a goal that Republicans AND Democrats share, and I know that working with our House counterparts we can produce a good compromise bill for our troops and our nation. The Senate Labor, HHS and Education bill makes important new investments in health care and education.  It increases funding for the National Institutes of Health by $5 billion over FY 2017.  It backs our commitment to increase access to higher education by increasing college affordability spending by $2.3 billion over FY 2017.  It increases access to childcare by $3.2 billion over FY 2017, and it invests nearly $3 billion to combat the opioid crisis that has plagued communities across this country.  Unfortunately, the House did not follow the Senate path.  It produced a partisan Labor, HHS bill that short changes programs for working Americans and is loaded up with poison pill riders, from attacks on the Affordable Care Act, to restrictions on family planning.  We will have to work out those differences in the days and weeks to come.  While those differences are challenging, they are not insurmountable, but the compromise must be able to garner 60 votes in the Senate.  I have said many times that if we are to have a strong national defense, we need to have a strong economy, an educated and healthy citizenry, and an able workforce.  The programs funded in the Labor, HHS, and Education appropriations bill are critical to achieving that.  The deep ties that run between defense and non-defense priorities make it fitting that we have packaged these two bills together, but they must remain together if we are to get them across the finish line by October 1.  If they are decoupled, it will destroy the bipartisan process we have worked so hard to establish.It is possible that the CR will be included in this bill, so it is essential that it be bipartisan and free of any controversial matter. The reason we in the Senate have been so successful in moving appropriations bills this year is because we have worked together.  Republicans and Democrats cooperated with each other.  Each side showed restraint in pursuing issues we felt strongly about, because to do so would have imperiled the whole process.  And each side had to trust the other so that we could reach agreement to move these bills forward. We must finish what we started, the way we started it – through bipartisanship and cooperation.  That means that the Defense and Labor, HHS bills must remain together in one package – we cannot drop one and finish the other.  That also means the Senate must stand together if the House insists on producing partisan conference reports containing poison pill riders.  And, finally, that means we must remain committed to finishing all three packages of bills and sending them to the President.  If House Republicans decide to delay Minibus # 2 until after the election and drop the Labor, HHS, Education bill from Minibus #3, it means that the $18 billion increase for Defense assumed in the bipartisan budget agreement is enacted while the $18 billion dollar increase of non-defense programs could be left in the dust – a clear violation of the bipartisan budget agreement that was based on parity between defense and non-defense programs.   Funding the government is one of our most basic constitutional responsibilities, and Americans expect us to work together and across the aisle to reach agreement on these bills.  The programs funded in these bills make a real difference in people’s lives and they should not held up due to partisan differences.  Let’s do what we were sent here to do, and pass these bills before the start of the new fiscal year.last_img read more

Study of NASA astronauts finds microgravity causes alterations of brain structures

first_imgNew neuroimaging research indicates that long-duration spaceflight results in structural brain changes, which could be the result of increased intracranial pressure while exposed to low levels of gravity. The findings have been published in the journal Radiology.“I have been working with NASA since around 2009,” explained Larry Kramer, the corresponding author of the study and a professor of diagnostic and interventional imaging at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth in Houston.“There was an astronaut that had just returned from a mission who developed visual problems during spaceflight. NASA flight surgeons wanted more information beyond what they could see on clinical examination. They asked me to perform a high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging study of this astronaut’s eye at the MRI research magnet at UTHSC-Houston.” Share LinkedIn “This is how my involvement started. I was able to describe a number of abnormalities which then resulted in another 26 astronauts being scanned over several years. I have been involved in trying to understand the mechanism of injury to astronaut’s eyes since then. The current study is the evolution of original work published in 2012.”In the current study, Kramer and his colleagues examined the brain structure of 11 astronauts, including 10 men and one woman, before they traveled to the International Space Station. The researchers followed up with MRI studies 1, 30, 90, 180, and 360 days after the astronauts returned. The astronauts spent 171 days in space on average.The researchers observed expansions in the astronauts’ combined brain and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) volumes. There was also increased velocity of CSF flow through the cerebral aqueduct, a narrow channel that connects the ventricles in the brain.“Microgravity causes alteration of both the eye and brain. In the brain, this is predominantly in the form of expansion of the volume of the white matter compartment and to a lesser degree enlargement of the fluid file spaces in the center of the brain (ventricles). Our current study showed that these changes persist up to one year postflight and therefore may be permanent,” Kramer told PsyPost.However, the researchers noted that “the changes are small in magnitude and remain within the range for healthy adults of similar age.”The brain scans also showed alterations to the pituitary gland, with most of the astronauts showing evidence of pituitary gland deformation, which suggests elevated intracranial pressure during spaceflight.“We found that the pituitary gland loses height and is smaller postflight than it was preflight,” Kramer said. “In addition, the dome of the pituitary gland is predominantly convex in astronauts without prior exposure to microgravity but showed evidence of flattening or concavity postflight. This type of deformation is consistent with exposure to elevated intracranial pressures.”The study — like all research — includes some limitations.“The major caveat is that we are not able to obtain MRI data in orbit to know the true extent of changes that are occuring in the brain while in the microgravity environment. All MRI studies are performed preflight and postflight only. This void is partially filled by optical coherence tomography and ultrasound,” Kramer explained.It is also unclear what causes the brain and ventricles to swell.“The predominant theory is that redistribution of fluid from the lower extremities headward is the precipitating cause. We are working with creating negative pressure in the lower extremity and full body artificial gravity through centrifugation to see if these interventions will prevent changes in the brain and orbit from occurring. These interventions are currently being evaluated in microgravity analogue studies performed on earth,” Kramer said.The study, “Intracranial Effects of Microgravity: A Prospective Longitudinal MRI Study“, was authored by Larry A. Kramer , Khader M. Hasan, Michael B. Stenger, Ashot Sargsyan, Steven S. Laurie, Christian Otto, Robert J. Ploutz-Snyder, Karina Marshall-Goebel, Roy F. Riascos, and Brandon R. Macias.

World Premiere Of The Tenth Year

first_imgThis Father’s Day, if you find yourself in SoHo, New York City, I encourage you to check out The Tenth Year film, which is having its World Premiere at the SOHO International Film Festival on Sunday, June 17, at 11 AM at Village East Cinemas on Second Ave in NYC.This film was inspired by the true-life experiences of Renee Napier, who also had a song written about her life by singer/songwriter, Matthew West. Former soap opera actors, Austin Peck and his wife, Terri Conn-Peck, are the real-life couple who portray the on-screen couple, giving powerful performances in this drama that will have you in tears by its end. The Tenth Year was written and produced by father and son team, Richard B. Anderson and Richard Anderson and directed by Richard Anderson (past winner of Best Student Film on Long Island at the Hamptons Take 2 festival for Decisions and Journey). This true to life drama follows the lives of a broken couple who, after 10 years without their son, are still trying to get their lives back on track — but a parole hearing changes everything.Young filmmaker Richard Anderson is owner of RA Cinematics and his father, Richard B. Anderson is owner of Livingstone Media and the Founder of Hope Radio, where he is the on-air host of “The Morning Drive,” which broadcasts from Holding Out Hope Church in Middle Island, where he is the pastor. I was thrilled to be Line Producer on the film. Many know me from my interviews at events through FameHampton, so it was nice to showcase my other talents behind the scenes.

Stroller Strong

first_imgRachel Goodale. Independent/Courtesy Rachel GoodaleI’m not a mother (yet, nor nearing it) but Rachel Goodale, a North Fork woman creating a community of fit moms, makes having kids look and feel good. With the support of her husband, Kevin, and their two children, four-year-old Reece and two-year-old Reagan, she has furthered a lifelong fitness journey by creating Stroller Strong Mamas. Since 2015, Goodale has inspired mothers old and new to achieve a more active lifestyle — for themselves, and their families.When did the fit-mom lifestyle click for you?When I got pregnant in 2015, I got my prenatal and postpartum certifications. I started teaching prenatal fitness classes and, once I had my son, I added in mommy-and-me fitness classes. I currently teach a few mommy-and-me fitness classes a week in addition to cycling and other fitness classes at Bodyrite Training in Jamesport. I am thrilled with where I am now in my fitness career. I love what I do.How have you seen the community come together?I still have some of the original moms I taught years ago in my first prenatal classes. The community of moms who all come together for the same purpose — getting their workout in with their kids in-tow — has grown so much. It’s amazing the relationships that have formed through these classes. Many playdates are made during class, moms grab coffee together after a class. Sometimes you can’t even tell whose child belongs to who because we all work together to get the kids what they need while simultaneously working out. I’m always impressed by the mom who will help a child while never missing a beat on her squats. It takes a tribe when raising kids. I consider my Stroller Strong Mamas one of the best mom tribes I’ve ever been blessed to know.What do the dads say?Don’t be fooled by the name. Dads and babysitters join us. They are not excluded by any means. But I think there may be a little intimidation being surrounded by the mamas. I mean, we gave birth to these babies. Kidding aside, it’s really for any parent or caretaker looking to workout with their kids.What’s the “mama motto?”The Stroller Strong Mamas motto is “lead by example.” Kids watch and learn by what they see you do. They are sponges, and pick up on everything they see around them. Show them how to live a healthy lifestyle and the importance of being active by working out with your kids.Can you detail some stroller moves?One of my favorite moves with the stroller is an ab roll out. Using a mat, come on to your knees with the front side of the stroller facing you, and place your hands on the base. You roll out into a plank-type position and roll back to your starting position using your abs. Just like an ab roller you might see at the gym, but you are using the stroller.A second move is a split squat. Facing away but standing in front of the stroller, place your foot on the child foot rest on a stroller. Move your body by dropping your knee straight down while keeping your front knee right over the ankle. I love how this move targets just one side of the body. Another great move is walking lunges with the stroller being pushed in front of you. It gives clients stability and a little extra weight being pushed ahead. Any variations of lunges can be done with similar moves.Do the kids join in?The few usual moms who are extremely devoted and come to classes every single week are always on my Instagram and Facebook posts — their kids are super cute and they tend to become part of the workout or do moves from the workout because they are exposed to it so often. We have a few babies who just absolutely love being held and make their way into the workout because there’s always accommodations for baby-wearing exercises. I have a few older children who accompany their moms and do most of the workout with them.I love when moms send me videos of their kids way after class is over, demonstrating the moves. I think all the kids are my mascots.How many different types of classes do you have?I have my outdoor classes at local parks during the warm-weather seasons, usually May through November. I have the indoor class at Bodyrite, which incorporates all the amazing equipment they allow us to use for strength training and sculpting. That class is offered once a week all year long.  I also have an indoor cardio-based class at Infinite Energy Dance Factory in Riverhead which is seasonal.Any special holiday classes?I try to get creative around Christmas with some holiday-themed exercise moves. We play “reindeer games” with silly exercise contests. We have to have a little fun, especially when there are kids involved.What’s your advice to moms out there who can’t seem to make the time to work out or find the motivation?It’s all about creating a habit. Getting up a half-an-hour earlier once a week or finding a class to sneak away to at least once a week. On the days I can’t seem to find time to work out, I just make sure I keep moving. If you can, take a walk on your lunch break, run around with your kids after work — whatever gets you to keep it active. The motivation for your workouts is your kids and showing them the meaning of self-care firsthand.If you need even more motivation, find another mom to take walks with or commit to taking a class with. It’s incredible how motivating it is to workout with other people who hold you accountable for your workout.Learn more about Stroller Strong Mamas at www.strollerstrongmamas.com.nicole@indyeastend.com@NikkiOnTheDaily Sharelast_img read more
