Willie Nelson Shares New Politically Charged Single, “Vote ‘Em Out”

first_imgWillie Nelson has shared a new single, “Vote ‘Em Out”, which he debuted last month at a concert he hosted in support of Democratic senatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke. Nelson has publically praised O’Rourke in recent times, as the liberal Red Headed Stranger has been a Texas resident for over a half of a century.Nelson’s charitable work dates decades back, highlighted by organizing the first-ever Farm Aid in 1985, along with Neil Young and John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews joining the organization in 2001. The long-running nonprofit concert series seeks to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to support farming families, and since its inception has raised more than $50 million dollars.Willie’s new politically inspired tune has a country twang to it, with Nelson ambitiously proclaiming, “If you don’t like who’s in there vote ’em out, that’s what election day is all about, the biggest gun we got is called a ballot box, so if you don’t like who’s in there vote ’em out.”Listen to a recently recorded studio rendition of Willie Nelson’s politically-charged ballad below:Willie Nelson – “Vote ‘Em Out”[Video: WillieNelson]Recently on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Nelson discussed his admiration for Democratic Texas Senate candidate, Beto O’Rourke, a polar opposite of Ted Cruz in every single way, and the Texans badmouthing his free benefit concert for O’Rouke. Nelson and Stephen Colbert also discussed Willie’s looks over the years, pondered which famous folks Nelson would most like to smoke a joint with, and amusingly responded to photos of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Women with heart risk

first_img <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3dkH1_8_Bs” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/d3dkH1_8_Bs/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the United States, deadlier than all forms of cancer combined. To make matters worse, in women the symptoms of cardiovascular disease may present differently than in men, and both treatments and risk factors may differ as well. The good news is that up to 90 percent of heart disease may be preventable, and that research into the unique risks and treatments faced by women has begun.Addressing the challenges that women face from this silent killer was the topic of the inaugural Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forum, “Women and Heart Disease: What You Don’t Know May Kill You.” Presented in collaboration with the Huffington Post, the panel discussion was held Thursday at the Leadership Studio of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). It was streamed to the Web and is available for viewing.The first step, the panel agreed, is to raise awareness of gender differences. The panel included Paula Johnson, cardiologist and executive director of the Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH); JoAnn Manson, chief of the division of preventive medicine, and co-director of the Connors Center, BWH; Frank Sacks, professor of cardiovascular disease prevention, department of nutrition, HSPH; and, speaking online from Nashville, Tenn., Stephanie Mohl, senior government relations adviser, American Heart Association.Tightness in the chest. Pain running down the arm. These are considered classic symptoms of heart disease, and they are — in men. In women, however, symptoms may include gastrointestinal upset, shortness of breath, or “overwhelming fatigue,” said Johnson. While these symptoms may be easily dismissed, especially by busy multitaskers, they shouldn’t be, because awareness is the first line of defense against a disease that kills a woman each minute. Contact your doctor, advised Johnson, for example, for heartburn, “if you take a Tums, and it doesn’t go away.”Many of the risk factors are different for women, as well. Although obesity, high blood pressure, and smoking all increase the chances for heart disease in women and men, women are disproportionately affected by diseases such as diabetes and certain disorders in pregnancy, such as pre-eclampsia, said Johnson. In addition, hereditary factors may play out differently in women, whose risk also goes up following menopause.Treating these risk factors is a major first step. “Heredity is not destiny when it comes to cardiovascular disease,” said Manson. Instead, behavioral changes, including diet and even moderate exercise, can greatly reduce the risk of heart disease or stroke. Although the effects of poor diet or exercise habits increase as we age, the opposite is true as well, as small changes have even greater benefits.“Women in their 60s or 70s, when heart disease rates go up, can really make a lot of progress in preventing heart disease and stroke by diet and by healthy lifestyle,” said Sacks. (These changes may also help prevent dementia.)The options for a “heart-healthy” diet, he said, are many. Nor, he stressed, is this diet the same as a low-fat diet. Fried fish, for example, can be quite healthy, if fried in a polyunsaturated canola or corn oil. He recommended the DASH diet, first developed by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which is high in fruits, vegetables, fish, and poultry, and calls for restricted intake of processed and red meat. (DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.) And although research, he said, is still ongoing about the role of sodium, in general health professionals believe we consume too much.Mohl noted progress in educating women and in reducing mortality in women. Citing the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, she called for increased awareness, both in personal and public choices. “We’re trying to make the healthy choice the easy choice,” she said. “As we’re building new roads, let’s make sure we have bike paths or crosswalks, so people can walk safely” to encourage walking and biking. “Provide calorie counts, so people can eat better.”More research into how heart disease manifests in women, the panelists agreed, is also necessary. Only recently have clinical trials included women and minorities, said Johnson. Even then, the results for these subgroups often are not broken out, which means that gender or population differences cannot be addressed.This research must not only look into the causes and treatment of heart disease, but also into prevention. “We need much more research on how do you effect behavior change,” said Manson. “So much can be prevented, but very few women are doing this. Having funding for that type of behavioral change research — what works and what doesn’t — couldn’t be more valuable.”last_img read more

Laguna Novigrad bought Dalmatia hotels

first_imgLaguna Novigrad dd, one of the leading tourist companies operating under the Aminess hotels and campsites brand, has concluded an agreement to take over Dalmacija hotela doo, which is majority owned by HTP Korčula and HTP Orebić. Cover photo: HTP Korcula, Port 9 The companies owned by Dalmacija Hotel have 7 hotels, an apartment complex and a camp with mobile homes with a total capacity of 1.000 accommodation units, while 6 hotels, 3 camps with mobile homes and a complex of villas in Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia with a capacity of 3.850 accommodation units already operate under the Aminess brand. The combined companies employ more than 800 workers, and last year they realized about 1,43 million overnight stays with a revenue of 440 million kuna. “With this acquisition, HTP Korčula and HTP Orebić get a quality and proven partner that will ensure the continuation of successful business and added value for destination development. The takeover itself is coming, in a difficult time for tourism that we have not witnessed since the Homeland War, but it also shows the confidence of investors in the long-term perspective and sustainability of Croatian tourism. We are focused on achieving the synergy effects of united companies as soon as possible and preparing for the next, in many ways, challenging season. The goal is to connect and jointly develop all destinations in order to get the best possible tourist and economic effect, and preserve jobs in a region where tourism is one of the most important industries. The task is not simple, but we believe in the quality and potential of Korcula and Peljesac”, Said the President of the Management Board of Laguna Novigrad, Zrinka Bokulić. Aminess recently expanded its business to the island of Krk by taking over the management of the tourist company Hoteli Njivice doo, whose ultimate majority owners are also Oleg Uskoković and J&T Private Equity Group Croatia Investments. The company consists of two hotels, a villa complex and a camp that now operates under the Aminess brand. The value of the transaction is 140 million kuna, which will be provided by Laguna Novigrad by recapitalizing the indirect majority owner, the company Auctor Holding as from Prague, which is owned Oleg Uskokovic and J&T Private Equity Group Croatia Investments from Prague. The right to participate in the recapitalization of Laguna Novigrad will be provided to other shareholders in proportion to their participation in the share capital of the company. Considering the capacities and development potentials, the business goal of Laguna Novigrad is to be included among the 5 leading hotel groups in Croatia. With regard to the acquisition of a majority stake in the companies HTP Korčula and HTP Orebić, Laguna Novigrad will announce a mandatory offer to take over the remaining shares within the prescribed period.  Dalmatia Hotels was established by the Prosperus FGS Economic Cooperation Fund, which became the majority owner in 2014 as part of a pre-bankruptcy settlement, thus avoiding the bankruptcy of two key hotel companies in southern Dalmatia.last_img read more
