Today, @EnergyCommerce is considering the #BuildBackBetter Act, legislation that makes historic investments in #maternalhealth including some of @ACOG’s top priorities and #CLC asks. @ACOG enthusiastically supports the following policies within the bill. 1/
The legislation includes @RepRobinKelly #MOMMAsAct mandate that states extend postpartum #Medicaid coverage to 1 year after the end of pregnancy, as recommended by @ACOG & other maternal health experts. The data are clear that this policy will improve outcomes & save lives. 2 /
This means that every indiv. who relies on Medicaid for pregnancy-related care will have coverage in the critical postpartum period to see their primary care clinicians & be referred to specialists, incl. for cardiac & mental health, as needed to address their health concerns. 3/

➡️Over 70% per cent of Indian households use #LPG as their primary cooking fuel
➡️85% have #LPG connections
➡️54% continue to use traditional solid fuels

Read more 👇 Image
How has #LPGPriceHike affected consumption?
84% of households using traditional #solidfuels with #LPG cited high prices of LPG refills as a reason for stacking fuels. LPG prices have risen by 40% over the last 1 year.
#PressRelease: Image
80% non-users cite the inability to afford #LPG – either bcz of connection cost or recurring expense on #fuel – as the reason for not having an #LPGconnection.
Using traditional solid fuels for cooking increases exposure to indoor #airpollution for such households.

As of June 2021, India’s #COVID19 death rate could be 6.8-7.9 times higher than the official ~290 deaths/mn popn, shows a preprint by @YRDeshmukh, @countthedead, @h_tejas, @paulnovosad, @AditiBhowmick18 et al. Follow the thread to know more:
The discrepancy btwn the estimated current death rate & expected death rate as per trends in the past yrs is called ‘excess mortality’. 8 states had 22% excess mortality in the 1st #Covid19 wave and 46% excess mortality in the 2nd, compared to 2015-19
The study uses data on deaths from India's civil registration system, a @TeamCVOTER survey and govt data from public health facilities to estimate excess deaths

"The Dry" could have been just another murder mystery film, but what made it interesting was how it weaved in the #ecological crisis in #Australia - #bushfires & #droughts - with the social crisis in #rural farming communities & small towns.
The swirling dust devils, the dried up #rivers & creeks, correlates with a societal collapse. The washing of a car with waste #water, the red crud that emerges out of shower heads, all narrating how a #rain starved society has hit its #ecological limit.
It is also about the decline of the farming community in #Australia. A telling comment in the film - an old #farmer worrying about how his #land will be tilled after he is gone: "Farms with no people. Imagine that. No need for towns. No need for any of us."

We’re just starting our National Rural Business Summit on #COVID19 vaccines!

It’s not too late to join Gov. Dirk Kempthorne and @SecVislack for this timely conversation:…
.@TheCOVIDCollab Co-Chair & Former Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne: “Instead of talking about vaccine hesitancy, we should talk about vaccine confidence. We need to tell why we’re confident that these vaccines are working and safe“
“To once again get all our children back in school, we need more citizens vaccinated or we run the risk of another year of virtual education,” Gov. Kempthorne says. “Today’s summit is not just about talking — it’s acting” to vaccinate #rural America. #healthaction

Excerpts from "'America’s Post-Pandemic Geography' - Covid-19 is transforming all types of communities, from big cities to suburbs to rural areas" - from the Summer 2021 Issue of @CityJournal - by @Richard_Florida & @joelkotkin. A #Thread.

1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

For the past three months, I’ve worked with @RuralOrganizing on a project conducting exit interviews with #rural organizers from across the country this past cycle to learn what happened. We talked to 70+ organizers and here’s what I learned:…
First, I should note how vital it is we collect data on what happened after an election. Too often, organizers, who are constantly engaging the grassroots, are let go afterwards and their volunteers/connections/experience/ideas go with them...
Campaigns SHOULD care about what organizers have to say. So should the Democratic Party as a whole. For this project, we focused fully on recommendations that can be made to every sector of the political sphere: campaigns, 501c3s, 501c4s, candidates, etc. But I have more to say—

I hope you and your family are safe and healthy. We’ve been through a lot this year.

Oregon is in a time of flux. Some are working to build a better Oregon and some capitalizing on divisiveness. #orpol
I’ve always believed politics should be about working together to overcome our challenges, not the pettiness that’s now common.

As a rural Oregonian, I recognize my interdependence on my neighbors. It is time to bridge divides, build relationships, & develop #rural leaders.
The painful fact is that the political establishment has demonstrated a fundamental lack of understanding of rural areas and has failed to invest in developing rural leaders. This lack of support hurts all rural communities, especially rural BIPOC Oregonians. #orpol #Oregon

-#2 brand in the overall private market. (55% is B2C)

Hoy @vonderleyen abrió el Debate sobre el Estado de la Unión con un discurso en el que remarcó que esta tiene que ser la Década #Digital 🇪🇺.

Abro hilo sobre los pilares: en datos, tecnologías e infraestructuras. Con una mirada geopolítica, social, verde y económica.
- 20% de inversiones de #NextGenerationEU se destinarán a tres áreas: conectividad, habilidades y servicios públicos digitales.
- Otro 20% del Plan de Recuperación fortalecerá la soberanía digital en tres áreas: nube europea, conectividad regional, y quantum y supercomputación.
Principales acciones:
- Puesta en marcha de una #Identidad Digital Europea segura y gobernanza de datos personales.
- Cerrar la brecha con lo #rural en infraestr. y conectividad: financiación de redes de ancha banda para el 40% aún sin acceso + human-centred AI para agricultura.
