Rice Village launches campaign to feed healthcare workers
Fare for Care is an initiative launched by the Rice Village, which is a meal donation campaign to feed healthcare workers at the Texas Medical Center during the coronavirus pandemic. The company is located in the 1938 shopping district.
The owner said that they provided $50,000 in seed money for the meal donation program. This would be enough to fund the first 5,000 meals. They will then match community donations for another 5,000 meals. It will potentially serve more than 15,000 meals to the emergency room and critical care teams at three hospitals in the Texas Medical Center.
The program will tackle two issues, which are the long and stressful hours medical professionals spend fighting the pandemic and Rice Village restaurants suffering a drastic reduction in business, causing painful layoffs.
Politan Row, the district's food hall, has been prompted to reopen in the campaign. It's resident chef's are among those who will prepare the meals for healthcare workers. It had been closed for several weeks following the declaration of the "Stay Home, Work Safe" order. Reorganizing its operations amidst the restrictions has been a struggle for the venture. They delivered its first batch of meals on Thursday to healthcare workers in the Texas Medical Center. The program delivered meals throughout the day to ensure medical personnel received fresh, warm food regardless of what shift they worked.
To contribute to the Fare for Care campaign, people can donate at https://rice-village.com/fare-for-care. The proceeds from the campaign will apply for ingredient purchasing and meal preparation. Neither Rice Management Company nor Rice Village will receive any profits from the operation and implementation of the Fare for Care program.

Borders closed to slow the spread of COVID-19
The shared border between the U.S. and Canada have been temporarily closed for any nonessential travel. President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that the Trump administration is planning on sending all the people crossing the border illegally from Mexico back on their way.
The two countries have agreed to take the step to slow the spread of the virus but also maintain their vital economic relationship. Canada relies on the U.S. for 75% of its exports. Trump also said that the decision would not affect the flow of trade between the countries. It will also prove to be one of the most aggressive attempts to curtail illegal immigration.
No final decisions have been made regarding the plan, according to the officials. Truck drivers and Canadian snowbirds are among those expected to get an exemption. These people that live in America for some parts of the year will be returning to Canada. Completely closing the border would cause severe economic damage to both the U.S. and Canada as the two economies are integrated. Much of Canada's food supply comes from or via the U.S., and 98% of its oil exports go to the U.S. About 18% of American exports go to Canada.
Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister, announced that anyone who is not a citizen, an American, or a permanent citizen would be restricted from entry. Even those who enter must self-isolate for 14 days on arrival. The level of integration of the two economies is the reason for the exemption for Americans from the restriction.
The United States has seen about 6,500 coronavirus cases and more than 110 deaths, while Canada has seen about 600 cases and eight deaths. The border was a vital aspect of life on both sides, according to Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland. Many Canadians criticized the decision to exempt Americans considering the high number of cases in the U.S.
Regarding the Mexican border, officials said the president had the authority to take such action in a pandemic. Mexico and Venezuela's efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus have been the weakest in North and South America.
Toddler killed in a hit and run crash
A hit-and-run crash on Friday night claimed the life of a 1-year-old in north Harris County. The child was buckled into the front passenger seat with a standard seatbelt rather than a child seat. The accident was reported around 11 p.m. on Friday in the 4700 blocks of Aldine Mail Route Road.
According to the investigators, a man was with the 1-year-old as they were traveling westbound in a black Nissan Altima.

The driver and the child were found unconscious without a belt in the driver seat. The toddler was given CPR on the scene. After being taken to an area hospital, the child was declared dead. The passengers of the Toyota Tacoma fled the scene after the crash on foot. They did not render any aid.
They were located to be hiding approximately 0.4 miles away in a residential area. The driver, identified as Jose Sergio Milla Iglesias, confessed to driving the vehicle and fleeing the crash site. He has been booked into the Harris County Jail on a felony charge of Failure to Stop and Render Aid-Involving Death.

ACTIVIST ARE BAILING OUT THE INDIVIDUALS ACROSS THE STATES
A network of volunteers were bailing out residents around the state after the release of several individuals held in Texas prisons by Gov. Greg Abbott delayed. The Texas Organizing Project announced it would continue by bailing out individuals with small bond sums imprisoned in Harris, Dallas, Bexar and Fort Bend county prisons, claiming that Abbott's policy was inhumane, and placing citizens who were merely convicted of offenses in a possibly dangerous position if they couldn't afford bail.
"If an individual has resources, they get to go home, irrespective of community safety," TOP's Michael Sneed said. "Abbott doesn't allow the person to get the same connection to justice because the victim is bad."
The executive order of Abbott prevented the release of those associated with a violent crime or the possibility of a criminal activity. The injunction further excluded individuals who in their lifetime were already accused of a serious offense, irrespective of the current allegation.
Now the Texas Supreme Court is reviewing the request.

Nursing homes see a rise in fatalities
Four of a Lincoln Park nursing home's residents have died due to the virus COVID-19, while 15 other people at St. Mary's Home are sick. St. Mary's Home is a nursing home among the growing number of homes that are dealing with the pandemic outbreak. The Little Sisters of the Poor operate it. They have claimed to be closely following the guidelines by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention since mid-March.
The facility has 76 beds for residents, and another 50 apartments in an adjoining building have been hard-hit by the virus. More than 700 nursing homes in the state have had confirmed cases of COVID-19, while almost 100 of them have had the death of a patient, resident, or a staff member.
Donovan, a consultant for families to place loved ones in nursing homes, said that a measure like social distancing is tough in most homes where hands-on Care is necessary. And although there are restrictions in place for visiting families, the virus can get in through many ways, from packages to staffers.
Safety equipment in many homes like personal protective equipment to disinfectants is in short supply. The number of deaths in nursing homes across the country is almost 3,600. Illinois alone has seen around 300 deaths in nursing homes from COVID-19.
Petition to exempt Boeing from the CARES Act filed by families
Ethiopian Airlines 302 Boeing 737 MAX 8 flight crash that occurred on March 10, 2019, took as many as 157 lives as it crashed shortly after takeoff. Now, the family members of the victims want the U.S. Treasury to deny Boeing of financial assistance under the CARES Act.
The crash was among the two fatal 737 Max 8 crashes that occurred in the span of five months. Both crashes were thought to be caused by a faulty automated flight-control system. 1,744 family members and friends signed the petition that was filed on Friday
The document read that Boeing did not enter the pandemic crisis with clean hands and called for the company to no longer self-certify the safety of its aircraft and put the safety and innovative engineering first and shareholders last.
Clifford Law Offices in Chicago represented the families of 68 victims in the crash. They said that the families only wanted to be certain that Boeing did not receive any federal bailout money until assurances were given that this will not happen to any other families.
The aircraft company had appealed for at least $60 billion to aid the U.S. aerospace industry under the CARES Act. The Act is a $2 trillion federal stimulus law providing financial relief to businesses and workers in the U.S amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Ripple presenta una demanda contra YouTube: "Ya es suficiente" - Cointelegraph (Noticias sobre el Bitcoin, Ethereum y el blockchain)
Ripple Labs y su director ejecutivo Brad Garlinghouse han presentado una demanda contra Youtube por su supuesta complicidad en una serie de repetidas estafas de "XRP giveaway".
Ripple Labs presentó una demanda contra Youtube LLC en el Distrito Norte de California el martes 21 de abril. El caso busca daños y perjuicios por el fracaso de Youtube en detener a los estafadores e imitadores de XRP. Los demandantes, llamados Ripple Labs y su CEO Brad Garlinghouse, están tomando medidas contra Youtube para "provocar un cambio de comportamiento en toda la industria y establecer la expectativa de la rendición de cuentas", según una publicación oficial de la empresa. Ripple y Garlinghouse dicen que la estafa, a menudo conocida como "The XRP Giveaway", ya ha estafado a víctimas por "millones de XRP valorados en cientos de miles de dólares". La demanda presenta quejas contra Youtube por: (1) Violaciones de la Ley Lanham por infracción de marcas; (2) Violaciones de los derechos de publicidad de la ley de California y del derecho común, y (3) Violaciones de la ley de competencia desleal de California. La estafa se basa en ataques de phishing contra canales legítimos de Youtube, según el archivo. Usando un correo electrónico malicioso, los atacantes se apoderan de los canales de Youtube de los creadores de contenido, a menudo aquellos con vínculos legítimos con Ripple. Un desglose de la típica ruta de ataque tomada por los estafadores. Fuente: Ripple.com Se insta a los espectadores de los videos en cuestión a enviar "entre 5,000 XRP y 1,000,000 XRP" a una dirección que figura en la lista, que promete 5 veces la devolución del receptor. La demanda afirma que Youtube se beneficia a sabiendas de las acciones de los estafadores, a pesar de tener la capacidad de detenerlos. La demanda establece: "YouTube se beneficia de la estafa vendiendo a sabiendas anuncios pagados en nombre de los estafadores que se hacen pasar por Ripple y el Sr. Garlinghouse. Estos anuncios, llamados 'anuncios de descubrimiento de video', están diseñados por YouTube para aparecer en la parte superior de su página de resultados de búsqueda junto a los resultados orgánicos de búsqueda". Ripple menciona varios casos en los que Youtube concedió insignias de verificación a canales que habían sido tomados por los estafadores. Ripple afirma que ha presentado 49 demandas de desestimación a Youtube relacionadas con la estafa desde noviembre de 2019. Otras 305 demandas fueron presentadas contra canales que se hacían pasar por Brad Garlinghouse específicamente, dice el documento. Los demandantes alegan que ya se ha causado un daño irreparable a la marca Ripple y a la reputación de Brad Garlinghouse. Ese daño fue empeorado por la supuesta "inacción deliberada" de Youtube, según la demanda. "La inacción deliberada de YouTube ha perjudicado y sigue perjudicando irreparablemente la marca Ripple y la reputación del Sr. Garlinghouse. La inacción de YouTube también ha perjudicado a incontables individuos que fueron víctimas de la estafa. Estos daños continuarán creciendo en alcance y severidad si no hay intervención de la Corte". En la demanda se pide que se concedan indemnizaciones legales, compensatorias y punitivas, y que se restituya todo el enriquecimiento que Youtube haya recibido durante el período en que las estafas estuvieron activas.
