STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams will appear on Voice America Talk Radio Network national podcast Next Steps Forward with Chris Meek on Tuesday. “Dr. Adams’ motto ‘better health through better partnerships’ has never been more pertinent than today as Americans cope with the current pandemic and leadership works diligently in concert with the healthcare industry to find reliable solutions,” Meek said. “We all have a perspective about COVID-19, but one perspective that Americans are most interested in hearing is that of the U.S. Surgeon General. I’m delighted and honored to have the opportunity to speak with Vice Admiral Adams, especially in the midst of a public health situation unlike any other we’ve experienced in our lifetimes.” Adams is the 20th Surgeon General of the United States. He earned bachelor’s degrees in biochemistry and psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, a master of public health degree from the University of California at Berkeley, a medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine, and is a board-certified anesthesiologist. He served as the Indiana State Health Commissioner from 2014 to 2017 where he led efforts during the state’s unprecedented HIV outbreak, caused
MADRID (REUTERS) - The Spanish government faced a backlash on Monday (Oct 26) over its plans to put the country, one of Europe's worst Covid-19 hotspots, under a state of emergency for six months. Opposition parties said that was too long, epidemiologists said the move may be too little too late, and some citizens balked at nightly curfews. "The curfew doesn't make much sense. Does the virus only infect people between 2300 and 0600? No," said Marta Aragoneses, a 36-year old schoolteacher, enjoying a cigarette outside a cafe in Madrid's historic La Latina neighbourhood. Nearby, Mariano Moreno de Guerra, a pharmacist on his way to work, said what worried him was the length of the state of emergency and the powers it gave authorities. "They are acquiring a taste for confining people and that could be dangerous. Extending it by six months is an absolute outrage. I see a lot of potential for abuse." The country's total number of cases soared by more than 50,000 over the weekend to reach 1,098,320 as of Monday, while the death toll is 35,031. Disagreements between the minority central government, regional authorities and the opposition have for months hampered
Elon Musk doesn’t earn a salary for running Tesla, but is getting rich quick nonetheless. The outspoken CEO of the electric-car maker is poised to unlock the fourth tranche in an eye-popping $50 billion performance-based compensation deal, bring his total stock awards to-date to roughly $11.8 billion. Musk has been given the option to buy $3 billion worth of Tesla stock for a measly $500 million after the electric automaker’s six-month average market-cap hit $250 billion and Tesla reported its fifth-straight quarter of profitability, the company said in a Monday SEC filing. To earn his full, $50 billion award, Musk must lead Tesla to a market cap of $650 billion by 2028. Tesla’s board signed off on the compensation package in March 2018, when the company’s market cap was just $52.46 billion. As of Monday afternoon, Tesla is the world’s most valuable automaker with a valuation of over $385 billion. For his first three milestones, Musk received the option to buy 1.69 million Tesla shares at $350 a pop after each was certified. But following Tesla’s 5-for-1 stock split in August he now gets to buy 8.44 million shares at $70 each. Tesla’s stock is currently worth $413 a share.
