Des Moines to End Experimental Bike Lanes in East Village

DES MOINES, Iowa — The City of Des Moines is doing away with the experimental bike lanes in the East Village.

The decision comes after businesses and neighbors in the area complained.

City leaders installed the lanes last year but left it up to the community to decide whether or not it wanted to keep them.

Crews are currently working on redesigning the road. Portions of East Grand will be closed throughout the week, as crews work on the road.

Middle Tennessee chapter of Sea Hawkers Booster Club holds chapter formation informational meeting

The Organizational Formation of Middle TN Sea Hawkers set to hold in Nashville on May 25, 2019

Sea Hawkers Booster Club is the Official Booster Club of the Seattle Seahawks and in line with the organization’s goal of spreading the word and creating more awareness about the Seattle Seahawks, the Middle Tennessee chapter of the Sea Hawkers Booster Club is set to be officially launched in May 2019. The organizational formation is scheduled to hold on the 25th of May 2019 with the agenda including the nomination of key officials as well as the discussion of the formation of the bylaws guiding the organization.

The Sea Hawkers Booster Club was established as far back as 1976 with the sole aim of taking the love for the Seahawks and helping the community right alongside them. Since it was founded over 4 decades ago, the non-profit has grown with several chapters in the United States and across the globe, all staying true to the primary goal of establishing the organization. It is in the same vein that a new chapter in Tennessee is set to be officially launched, consequently bringing the good cause of the Sea Hawkers Booster Club closer to the people of Tennessee.

The organizational formation meeting will give an opportunity for attendees and other such interested persons to put in place a solid framework or foundation for the organization. Some of the important agenda items of the meeting include the nomination and eventual voting of key officials of the organization by those in attendance that want to form this Middle Tennessee Sea Hawkers Chapter. The positions open for nomination and voting are President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Membership Coordinator.

The name of the chapter will also be deliberated on with attendees given the chance to nominate and vote on the official name of the chapter. The formational BYLAWS of the chapter will also be discussed and then voted on. This ensures that the chapter is not only given the best possible foundation to build a strong structure but will also ensure that the Middle Tennessee chapter of the Sea Hawkers is set up in line with the core principles of Sea Hawkers Booster Club.

The meeting will be held at the Nashville Public Library Donelson Branch Meeting Room from 2:45 PM to 4:30 PM on Saturday, May 25, 2019. Interested attendees are advised to be at the venue 10 minutes early as the doors will be closed to any show up after 2:50 pm just to not disrupt the meeting and so all in attendance have time to have their questions answered without interruption.

Organizers of the Middle Tennessee Sea Hawkers have also reiterated that the organization is not a replacement for the TennesSeahawks or any other watch party group going on at all.

More information about the meeting and other details of the Middle Tennessee Sea Hawkers (not official name till voted on) can be found on Facebook.

Woman sues Kansas hospital after she says an employee contacted her accused rapist

ATCHISON, Kan. – An Atchison Hospital employee is accused of leaking a patient’s personal information to the woman’s suspected rapist, leading him to rape the victim a second time.

The hospital says patient confidentiality and protecting personal information is a top priority, and they blame a former employee whose actions they call “deeply disturbing.”

The victim was sexually assaulted in May 2017; she went to Atchison Hospital for an evaluation and to have a rape kit processed.

She told hospital staff who attacked her and was adamant they not disclose that information to anyone.

According to a lawsuit filed against Atchison Hospital and one of its former employees though, an X-ray technician at the hospital contacted the woman’s assailant to tell him the victim had accused him of sexual assault.

The woman said that led to her alleged attacker relentlessly harassing her through text messages, social media and phone calls, as well stalking her in public and her at her house, eventually raping her a second time. The lawsuit also says the hospital employee harassed and hounded her as well.

The suit blames Atchison Hospital for not securing patient medical information.

The hospital’s CEO wrote a letter to the patient, apologizing for any “concern or difficulty” the incident caused her.

Although the hospital fired the X-ray technician, the suit says Atchison Hospital gave her positive reviews so she could quickly get a new job at Saint Luke’s Cushing Hospital in Leavenworth. Saint Luke’s said it was unaware of the reason for the employee’s termination at Atchison before the lawsuit was filed, and they have since put her on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

Atchison Hospital representatives said it’s reviewed the situation to see what could be done differently in the future.

The hospital said it “immediately implemented changes to internal controls including even stricter accessibility requirements to its Health Information Management Department. Patient confidentiality at Atchison Hospital and our ability to protect personal information is a top priority of ours.”

Listen: A Blitz Of Health Care Bills

Julie Rovner, Kaiser Health News’ chief Washington correspondent, talks with Robin Young on “Here and Now” about Democrats’ plans to push a package of health care bills through the House this week. The measure will give lawmakers a talking point about their efforts to bolster the Affordable Care Act after the Trump administration has sought to weaken it. The package, however, includes several bills with bipartisan support to get generics on the market sooner. So, voting against the package will prove tough for Republicans. Rovner and Young also discuss bipartisan efforts on Capitol Hill to eliminate surprise medical bills that patients get when their doctors or hospitals are outside their insurance network and the administration’s new requirement for drugmakers to add medications’ list prices in TV ads.

Wells Fargo Donation Helps Build Homes for Central Iowa Families

DES MOINES, Iowa — A donation from Wells Fargo will help five central Iowa families get a place to call home.

Wells Fargo donated $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity, and the money will be used to build those families homes in the Birdland area of Des Moines.

Construction on the first home got underway Tuesday, and 100 Wells Fargo employees were on hand to help. Team members say getting their hands dirty is what motivates them to give back.

“When you’re out here and you’re actually working and you’re learning how to build a wall and figuring out what this wall is going to mean to somebody one of these days and how it becomes a part of somebody’s home, it’s way different than writing a check, and I think that’s what our team members love the most,” said Jodi Kness, Wells Fargo’s senior vice president.

This will be the 100th Habitat home Wells Fargo has built in the metro.

WPTavern: Bear App Adds WordPress Publishing Integration for iOS

For several years, Bear App users have eagerly requested the ability to publish their notes to WordPress. Bear features a zen writing experience blended seamlessly with note-taking capabilities, a combination that landed the app an Apple Design Award in 2017.

People use Bear for everything from taking notes to writing chapters for books. Many users also rely on the app for writing drafts for blogs they plan to publish on other platforms. This often requires multiple steps for copying and pasting content, especially when there is media or HTML included in the content.

Two years ago, the app’s creators had WordPress publishing on their to-do list but it wasn’t yet a priority. They were reluctant to implement their own publishing tool with the WordPress APIs and preferred a solution that would rely on external apps.

Things have changed in the past couple of years, as writing apps have more pressure to provide a frictionless connection to publishing capabilities in order to remain competitive. WordPress’ market share has grown to be an estimated 33% of the the top 10 million websites. In fact, Bear recently moved its blog off of Medium and over to WordPress in February 2019.

This week, maintainers of the open source WordPress mobile apps, and Bear announced that they have collaborated on a solution that allows users to publish notes to WordPress blogs on iOS. Recent updates to both Bear and WordPress apps enable users to click the share icon on a note and see WordPress pop up as an option. The content is shared with all of its formatting, headings, lists, links, and media in tact.

Bear screen recording

The developers at Shiny Frog, makers of the Bear app, explained the solution they landed on for the WordPress integration:

We built an open source library for processing TextBundle files. TextBundle is an open standard for sharing plain text files that include attachments like photos. WordPress then worked to add TextBundle support to its iOS app. Bear hands your note off to WordPress as a TextBundle file, and WordPress converts it into a blog post.

Using an open standard like this allows other other developers to build on top of it to create their own integrations for other platforms. It also keeps the Bear app team from having to stay up to date with all the changes to APIs of multiple platforms.

The new WordPress publishing integration works with any site you have in the WordPress mobile app for iOS, including both self-hosted and sites. Notes must begin with an H1 tag in order to have the blog post title automatically populated. Bear App users can start publishing to WordPress immediately after updating both apps to the latest versions released this week.
