WARWICK, R.I. - Mary Balcerzak's nightmare was coming to an end. The coronavirus-positive woman spent 10 hours sitting with other infected patients in a small emergency department meeting room before health-care workers were able to find a bed for her in tiny Room 25. Now, 36 hours after she arrived, Balcerzak, 70, was about to move upstairs where she belonged, to a bed on a floor inside Kent Hospital. In a nearby hallway, five people sat in chairs, one man drinking tea, quietly talking to himself. Two elderly women lay on gurneys in another corridor. The patient in Room 28 needed to be moved to intensive care, but there was no bed available. This is what a slow day looks like in a hospital emergency department overwhelmed by the coronavirus. On other days, health-care workers have drawn blood from patients as they sat in their cars, set up intravenous drips in the packed waiting room or shunted patients to the overflow tent outside. There was simply no other choice, no other … [Read more...] about Inside a Rhode Island hospital E.R. overwhelmed by omicron

5 WASHINGTON - The second week of August began as a time for vacation for President Joe Biden and some of his team. Then Afghanistan imploded. The reports out of Kabul were harrowing: Images of desperate Afghan nationals clinging to U.S. military airplanes leaving the country and, days later, a suicide bombing at a gate to the airport that killed 13 U.S. troops. Addressing the nation on Aug. 16, Biden defended his decision to leave Afghanistan but acknowledged that the Taliban takeover of the country "did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated." Administration officials and allies publicly argued there was no good way to exit a war that had been lost years ago, and privately said that within a few weeks, most Americans - who largely supported the decision to bring U.S. troops home from the 20-year conflict - would forget about the messy process. But across the river in Arlington, aides working for Democrat Terry McAuliffe's … [Read more...] about Inside Biden’s declining popularity as he struggles with multiple crises
With the Pikes Peak racer, Bentley has already built a faster Bentayga by cutting 660 pounds (300 kilograms) of fat. The problem is you can’t just go to the dealership and buy one since the SUV-turned-race-car was engineered only to go up the hill at the Colorado event with Rhys Millen behind the wheel. However, an amped-up version of the opulent SUV is in the works and everyone will be able to buy it. “Everyone” as in those with the means to pay what will be a significant premium over the already pricy Bentayga . According to a new report published by Autocar , the Bentayga Speed is coming out later this year with an upgraded twin-turbo 6.0-liter engine. Crewe’s engineers have apparently massaged the W12 engine to squeeze an extra 50 horsepower through various hardware and software upgrades. That would bring the grand total to a massive 650 hp, which would represent an extra nine horses compared to the Lamborghini Urus with which the Bentayga shares a lot of the hardware. … [Read more...] about Bentley Bentayga Speed To Pack More Punch Than Lambo’s Urus?
