USNS Mercy Hospital Ship may reduce number of available beds to free up staff for other missions said Ship Commander

The Mercy Hospital Ship of US NAVY had docked in Los Angeles to provide support and help to the local hospital and to increase the available number of beds in the city. The ship might reduce the number of beds once the local hospitals can handle the workload, said the ship's captain and military documents.

The mercy will send the about 40 medical staff to nearby nursing facilities on Monday, said Navy Capt. John Rotruck, the ship's commander, said Wednesday. Rotruck said that the number of beds would be reduced from 1000 to 250 to free up the staff to join other missions. Currently, the ship has 800 active duty doctors, nurses, and staff members on board the vessel.

The ship had served in San Diego and left on March 23 for Los Angele and arrived four days later to provide noninfected patients with a possible treatment. The facility was designed to be a non-coronavirus zone with protocols for testing patients and staffers. Rotruck added that 51 patients had been treated on the ship since it had arrived, and 17 were on board on Wednesday. On average, 20-21 people per day come to the ship for the treatment.

In these days, seven crew member was tested to be Coronavirus positive, and about 112 members were quarantined because they had contact history from the infected crew members. But there are no more new cases of COVID-19 in crew members, and several infected members had started returning to duty.

Two suspects arrested after a high-speed pursuit through South LA, multiple vehicles damaged


A man along with a woman was involved in a pursuit leaving many others injured and destroying their way across South Los Angeles. The driver was at a speed of more than 100 mph and damaged multiple vehicles during that erratic police chase. Scott Reiff told that AIR HD started tracking the pursuit in the Monterey Park region where the driver reached up to 100mph. From 10:30 am, the drivers were involved in their destructive driving, followed by police, and they drove past residential streets, taking very sharp turns and blowing through the intersections. The driver circled S. Central Avenue, appeared to lose control of the truck, regained control, and avoided a spike strip put by the officers and this chase continued to 110 Freeway. The truck almost missed many vehicles before running into a sedan. A driver in the pick-up truck tried to block the suspect near E. Florence Avenue. Smoke emitted from the vehicle’s backside and the vehicle driver rammed into the other truck. They continued to Florence, and after some time, the rear tire blew. The suspects continued driving on the rim with less speed. The worn-out rim caught fire, the driver and passenger jumped off and were immediately arrested.

A family in Glendale, sued a medical facility with the blame of the death of their loved one


Now, a family is blaming the nursing home for the death of their loved ones. For this, they filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the facility on Thursday.


According to the suit, the nursing home practiced inadequate safety conditions during the pandemic.


Ricardo Saldana was living in the Glenhaven Healthcare in Glendale, and then a 77-year-old man contracted COVID-19.


"They put a patient with COVID-19 in my dad's room. They killed my dad," said Jackie Saldana.

Jackie, his father, suffered a stroke six years ago and was relatively healthy until the pandemic arrived. And the family said that he would have stayed safe and healthy if Glenhaven had kept proper precautions at the time of the pandemic outbreak.


The family also claimed that a nurse who was exposed to Coronavirus at another facility was serving in the Glenhaven facility.


Now Saldana family is suing the facility for elder abuse, willful misconduct, and negligence.


Scott Glovsky, the family's attorney, said that Ricardo is just one of the 10 cases of deaths due to COVID-19 in the facility, but the Los Angeles County Public Health Department had reported only five such deaths.


"His death has hit me like 100 knives going in my heart. My family is devastated," Jackie said.

Somewhere in the wild by Fredapsychic


Somewhere in the wild

In my little tiny house

It’s so cold, I have a jacket on

Listening to the birds chirping

Crazy how the little things make me happy

It’s amazing how my mind works

Everything i visualize becomes my reality

The power of the mind

It’s the most valuable asset

Yet some don’t value it because they have it for free

The power of the mind

It’s unimaginable


I’ve been so hurt in the past

Betrayed by people who i thought had my back

Life of a dark empath

Filled with so many emotions

Feeling emotions deeper than usual

Dealing with feelings that are not even mine

Helping people out of the goodness of my heart without expecting anything in return

These same people would drag my name through the mud at any chance they got


I heard the phone calls

I heard the side talks

I heard everything false that was spoken about me

I know they see my light

Lucia she calls me

Shining brightly even when i can’t see it

Sometimes we are blind to our own light

But others can see it

Sometimes they are intimidated by it

Sometimes they are intrigued by it

Other times they want to drag you down

They want to make you feel less than you are


I’ve done so much for people that don’t deserve any of my kindness

All they did was take advantage of it

This made me become cold hearted

Sometimes you go through a series of experiences and pain

You just go numb to it

You don’t feel it anymore

You become heartless

The same people wonder why you became like that

It’s not even about people anymore

It’s about how i feel on the inside

I had to go through a lot of healing and self reflection

Deep down i know i am a kind and loving person but it’s hard to show it in a world that sees such traits as weakness


I began to protect myself and cut toxic people out of my life

Even at the slightest sign of me being taken advantage of or made to feel less than i am

If i am not treated with love and respect, i am out

I honestly don’t have time for anything that isn’t bringing me joy and peace

I am beginning to be more selfish with myself and keep my peace


I noticed i love to play

As a child i wasn’t allowed to play much or express myself

I was super active as a child and they always told me to stay calm

They tried to make me become who i wasn’t

I had to grow up re-parenting myself

I had to remind myself that it is okay to play

I had to remind myself that it is okay to say how you feel

I had to remind myself that my opinions matter

I’m still in the process of healing

I protect my energy and sanity at all cost

I don’t want anything disrupting my inner world again


The world is full of wolves looking for prey

You either hunt or be hunted

You’re either a hunter or a prey

I’m living everyday life as it comes

Sometimes I’m still confused about what this is all about

I lay in bed wondering what my purpose is on this earth

I guess non of us are making it out here alive

I strive to live my truth

I strive to be my true authentic self

Till i let go of my physical body

My soul and works would live on

The writer apologized to a man who spent 16 years in prison for her rape

Alice Seabold apologized for the illegal conviction of a man who was found not guilty of raping her in 1981.


In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.


Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.


"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

A statement released by Broadwater's lawyers said he was "relieved that she apologized."

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.

In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.
