Bud Pierce, MD, Candidate for Oregon Governor

On Oct. 12, about 100 anarchists damaged property in 35 Portland locations, Dr. Bud Pierce, Republican candidate for governor says this must stop.

No one should be allowed to break the law without consequences. What was once a vibrant and culturally diverse city is becoming a place where laws are meaningless”

— Dr. Bud Pierce, Oncologist and Candidate for Oregon Governor

SALEM, OR, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Dr. Bud Pierce, Oregon Republican candidate for governor, said that we cannot allow Portland anarchists to break the law without consequences.

On Oct.12, a group of about 100 anarchists damaged property in 35 Portland locations. The price tag of the violence is estimated to be over $500,000.
The violence occurred following a memorial for self-proclaimed anarchist Sean Kealiher. This is the second anniversary of his death.

Dr. Pierce said, “Portland’s crime wave is a direct result of its cutting back on law enforcement last summer. Some of the city’s leadership can’t seem to make that connection.”

In a Facebook post, The Portland Police Association (PPA) made it clear that the city’s police force is understaffed.

Daryl Turner, the Executive Director of the PPA, wrote, “In the last 20 years, Portland’s population has grown by over 170,000 people. During that time, PPA has grown and evolved its policing policies and practices to better meet the city’s desire for broadminded and sophisticated police professionals. Yet our city has fewer police officers now than in 1999.”

Turner added that the agency would need to hire 840 additional officers to meet the 2.5 officers per thousand population that is considered appropriate according to FBI statistics.

Dr. Pierce, who is a strong advocate of public safety, said, “Law enforcement must have the proper resources and training necessary to combat this surge of violence. They also must have a government that supports them, not demonize them.”

“No one should be allowed to break the law without consequences. What was once a vibrant and culturally diverse city is becoming a place where laws are meaningless,” Dr. Pierce added.

Dr. Bud Pierce has placed public safety at the forefront of his campaign agenda. He has committed to strengthening law enforcement’s role and providing citizens with the protection they need to live without fear of violence.

Bud Pierce, M.D, Ph.D. is a business owner and senior partner of Oregon Oncology Specialists, one of the last physician-owned practices on the West Coast. He announced his candidacy for governor on the Republican ticket in April 2021. Approved photos and biography can be found at www.BudPierce.org/newsroom.

First Lady Tammy Murphy Continues to Push Maternal Health by Attending the Opening of TRU Birth Center in Lakewood

LAKEWOOD, NJ, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On October 17 2021, First Lady Tammy Murphy will attend the grand opening of TRU Birth Center.

As an energetic voice for maternal health, the First Lady has sought to shine a spotlight on practical solutions for New Jersey’s mothers. TRU Birth Center, conveniently located in Central New Jersey, exemplifies this vision and is one of the first institutions to be optimized for expectant mothers.

TRU Birth Center is under the medical direction of the experienced, well-known and much beloved Clara Surowitz, MD, FACOG, who has earned a name as one of the tops in her field and is highly sought after for her warmth, expertise and care.

TRU Birth Center is currently celebrating the impressive milestone of its 100th birth. The 100 mothers who have benefitted from TRU care have all been tremendously happy and satisfied with the care and service they received.

TRU Birth Center was designed around a core philosophy of bringing better results for expectant mothers. TRU accomplishes this by providing an innovative blend of medical and midwife care. Expectant mothers receive the security of one of the region’s top OB-GYN teams, while also enjoying the comfort of a personal Certified Nurse Midwife. With this unique approach, Dr. Surowitz and her team have succeeded in increasing maternal health outcomes.

TRU’s approach has been validated by industry groups. Dr. Surowitz has recently been recognized by Amerigroup for having New Jersey’s lowest rate of cesarean deliveries. Additionally, the birth center will significantly cut costs for the health care system, with the average birth being performed roughly half the costs compared to hospital deliveries according to a New York Times article. This combination of health and economic optimization can provide a boon for mothers everywhere. Robyn D'Oria, CEO of Central Jersey Family Health Consortium, feels this could be an important precedent. “TRU has proven that a mother-first philosophy is not only better for maternal and infant health, but it also makes good business sense. By taking proper care of expectant mothers, birth centers can do good and do well at the same time.”

The First Lady established maternal health as one of her core goals with the establishment of the Nurture NJ initiative in 2019. Since then, she has implemented the Nurture NJ Maternal and Infant Health Strategic Plan – a practical goal-oriented strategy aimed at reducing maternal and infant mortality for all New Jersey residents. The plan includes increased maternal health screenings, more access to medical care, and increased coverage for beneficial birth services like doula attendance.

She has expressed her excitement that mother and infants could receive a renewed focus, even from private medical establishments. “Our state has always worked best when the public and private sectors work together. I am excited that the Nurture NJ emphasis on maternal health is being adopted by the state’s medical institutions and I’m looking forward to see how much better we can make it for mothers everywhere.”

In addition to First Lady Murphy, the event will be attended by local officials, doctors, community leaders, and many of the mothers and families who are part of the 100 births of TRU Birth Center. There will be a number of informative sessions as part of the program.

People, Places and Struggles: The Priceless Care of Our Children

Small Girl Plays Outside of Daycare

Journalist Amy Lane examines the very real challenges facing child care centers and families in northern lower Michigan.

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — At a time when many child care providers closed during the pandemic and never reopened – and those that are open may house long waiting lists – there’s heightened attention to the importance and challenges of a sector underpinning society and economy, in northern Michigan and beyond.

Child care providers have been among those aided by Venture North Funding & Development, through consulting, loans, or Regional Resiliency Program grants that helped small businesses survive the pandemic and rebound. Learn more about the challenges and dedication of those at early childhood’s grass roots, the owners and directors of businesses that are about the future of our families, communities and economy. Journalist Amy Lane offers insight and stories that are at the heart of this critical issue in this month's Northern Lights. Read the below excerpt and then head over to our website to read more today.

From the Venture North "Northern Lights" e-newsletter:

Run by owners passionate about helping children, families and communities, the businesses educate and care for young ones in their most critical phase of development, operating many times on thin margins and challenged to find staff – and even public acknowledgement – of the significance of the work that they do.

“I think that the pandemic has shone a spotlight on them,” said Mary Manner, co-coordinator of the Great Start Collaborative of Traverse Bay, the region’s early childhood initiative. “It made people have to confront that reality, that child care is an essential part of our economy. Because without child care, people can’t go to work. Or if they do go to work, they have cobbled together some system of care that is not in the best interest of the child.”

PARIS, FRANCE, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Thursday morning, October 14, 2021, teachers in Tehran and 44 other cities (25 provinces) rallied to protest against the difficult living conditions and the regime's disregard for their legitimate demands. They vowed to continue their protests until they obtain their demands, including the release of all imprisoned teachers.

Widespread gatherings of teachers have so far been reported in 45 cities, including Tehran, Khorramabad, Sari, Kermanshah, Borujerd, Khorramshahr, Shiraz, Pol Dokhtar, Andimeshk, Yazd, Qazvin, Isfahan, Mashhad, Ardabil, Marivan, Malayer, Javanrud, Selseleh, Hamedan, Qom, Zanjan, Behbahan, Saqez, Norabad Mamasani, Arak, Ilam, Shirvan, Fereydoun Kenar, Bandar Anzali, Aligudarz, Sanandaj, Ahvaz, Yasuj, Kerman, Bushehr, Bandar Abbas, Darab, Takestan, Bojnurd, Izeh, Jolfa, Aleshtar, Jahrom, Kuhdasht, and Tabriz.

The teachers' protest in Tehran took place outside the Planning and Budget Organization and in front of the regime's Ministry of Education offices in other cities, despite the clerical regime's repressive measures, including sending plainclothes agents to the scene and preventing the protesters from taking film or photos.

In Ahvaz, the repressive State Security Force (SSF) attacked the demonstrators gathered in front of the regime's radio and television building and dispersed them. In Kerman, the SSF arrested some of the teachers to prevent the gathering, but teachers carried out their protest, neutralizing the regime's plans.

In Tehran, a large placard held by the protesters read: "Teacher is vigilant and hates discrimination."

Among the slogans used in the gatherings in different cities across Iran were:

"No surrender, no compromise, our ranking must be realized,"

"Imprisoned teachers must be freed,"

"We will not relent until we obtain our rights,"

"Teacher, demand your rights,"

"Astronomical plunder (by the regime), is bringing misery to the public,"

"Social justice equals, implementing the Ranking Act," and "Implementing the Ranking Act without cheating."

The signs carried by the demonstrators read:

"No to the imprisonment of teachers,"

"Imprisoned teachers must be freed,"

"Teachers should not be imprisoned," and "Laid-off teachers should be reinstated in their jobs.”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed the protesting teachers and called on the youth and students to support their legitimate demands, especially the release of imprisoned teachers.

The teachers’ nationwide protests and solidarity in more than 40 cities against the mullahs’ inhuman policies, for restoring the teachers’ trampled rights and the right to free education for Iran’s children show the Iranian people’s resolve to liberate Iran from religious tyranny, Mrs. Rajavi said.

The only way to achieve the rights of all sectors of Iranian society, teachers, pensioners, workers, nurses, and the medical staff, suffering from the regime’s oppression and corruption, is the overthrow of Khamenei and henchmen like Ebrahim Raisi by the MEK Resistance Units and supporters of The Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), through an uprising.

John Castorani for Virginia

Republican Congressional Candidate John Castorani

RICHMOND, VA, USA, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — John Castorani, the leading Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s 7th Congressional district has submitted some incredibly encouraging fundraising numbers for the 3rd quarter of 2021. Castorani’s campaign has released financials that show an impressive $263,812.52 from over 10,600 individual donations.

The recently retired U.S. Special Ops and Intelligence officer who served in combat zones in many global hotspots has zeroed in on national security as a key campaign issue.

Castorani is fast becoming a rising star in his party with his no nonsense, common sense approach and advocacy of such issues as the second amendment and small government.

John Castorani states, “We raised $263,812.52 from 10,600 individual donations, and I thank each and every one of them for their generous support. This only reaffirms my connection to the hard working folks in Virginia’s 7th Congressional district and conservatives around the nation who are exceedingly alarmed with our spending and our security both at home and abroad. I pledge to work hard for the people of the state and the people are making sure I have the resources to beat Democrat incumbent Abigail Spanberger.”
