While getting evaluated by a specialist used to take up to several hours, new in-ambulance technology being tested by hospitals nationwide is helping patients get evaluated within minutes. May is American Stroke Month, and a good opportunity to learn how a new technology known as InTransit Telestroke (ITTS) may treatment. With ITTS, stroke neurologists can examine patients by using video technology from ambulances, decreasing the time between a patients onset of symptoms and crucial treatment. In the case of strokes, every moment counts, and thanks to ITTS, were able to deliver treatment faster than ever before, says Gary Belt, M.D., stroke neurologist at Atlantic Health Systems Overlook Medical Center in Summit, N.J., a not-forimplement ITTS technology. Recent research highlights patients evaluated with ITTS in ambulances while intransit to the hospital can be treated with the brain saving drug alteplase 13 minutes faster than those patients not assessed until they are in the emergency department (referred to as door-to-needle, or DTN, time), according to a recent study by researchers at Overlook Medical Center and Atlantic Health System and published by the journal Stroke. assessed 89 presumptive stroke patients in ambulances over 15 months from January 2015 through March 2016. Atlantic Health System paramedics responding to neurological emergencies used an InTouch Xpress device -a portable unit with a highand screen -allowing video communication with a stroke neurologist who performed a neurological evaluation of the patient while in-transit to the emergency department. Once the patients arrived at the participating hospitals emergency department, the neurologist assumed care and, when indicated, administered alteplase, a tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) that breaks down blood clots to restore We are constantly looking for ways to treat stroke patients as quickly as possible, as each passing minute of lost blood supply translates to more brain damage, says John J. Halperin, M.D., senior study investigator and chair, department of neurosciences at Overlook Medical Center. Our observations suggest that pre-hospital evaluation with telestroke may provide a scalable, affordable way to speed stroke treatment, as well as more rapidly direct patients to the centers capable of performing the procedures that will serve their needs best. StatePoint May is American Stroke Month: What to Know Now Prince Harry and American Actress Meghan Markle Exchange Vows in Blackest Royal Wedding EverBy Lauren Victoria Burke Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, an American actress with an African American mother, were married on May 19 after exchanging vows at St. Georges Chapel in the Windsor Castle in England about an hour from London. The ceremony was striking for its racial diversity in a royal family not know for it. The blend of African American and British culture noted by many onlookers resulted in a memorable ceremony with cutting edge aspects and for the British royal family. It wasnt just the entrance of tennis champion Serena Williams wearing Versace or Oprah Winfrey in a pink Stella McCartney dress and hat, it was the music, the style and the words spoken at the ceremony. Gone was that often accompanies royal ceremonies; the weddings diversity made the affair even more regal. The brides mother, Doria Ragland, stood nearby, sometimes shedding tears, as the only blood relative on Meghans Markles side of the family to attend the wedding. Markles father, Thomas, was too ill to attend the ceremony after a recent heart ailment. Sheku Kanneh-Mason, a Black 19-year-old classic cellist from Nottingham Black musician to win the BBC Young Musician of the Year award in 2016, performed at the wedding. Kanneh-Mason performed Sicilienne, Aprs un rve and Ave Maria during a break in the ceremony when the royal couple had to depart the altar to sign a registry in a backroom and out of the sight of their guests. During an address focused on the power of love, that as spirited, Bishop Michael Curry, the head of the U.S. Episcopal Church, brought the Black church to the royal wedding. Curry began and ended his speech quoting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. saying, We must discover love. And when we do, we will make a new world. Karen Gibson directed The Kingdom Choir in a performance of Stand By Me. The Ben E. King song is a R&B standard from 1961. A Black woman in an updo directing a Black choir in Stand By Me after a Black preacher gave a three-point sermon, complete with altar of the United Kingdom.

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex Democrats Must Invest in Black Voter Outreach to Flip Red States to Blue States, Experts SayBy Jeffrey L. Boney This November, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate will be up for grabs, making this one of the most crucial midterm elections in recent memory. Thirty-three of the 100 seats in the Senate will be regular elections, while the other two seats will be special elections, where the winner will serve a six-year term from January 3, 2019, to January 3, 2025. If Democrats are able to held House seats, while holding on to all of their current seats, they will take back the House in 2018. Things are a lot closer in the U.S. Senate; Democrats Senate seats to take the Senate back. Every major election cycle there are always discussions about turning battleground states that have traditionally been red states into blue states. Here in the U.S., a state is referred to as a red state or blue state depending on the party that those voters in that state traditionally choose during elections. If the majority of voters consistently choose the Republican Party, then that state is deemed a red state, whereas if the majority of voters consistently choose the Democratic Party, it is considered a blue state. In order for Democrats to turn traditional red states into blue states in November, they will need increased voter registration and strong voter turnout in the Black community to make that happen. Focusing on these two important factors could like Texas, Nevada, Tennessee, Utah, Arizona, Mississippi, and others from red states to blue states. More importantly, there are 39 gubernatorial elections and many other local, county and statewide races that will also be impacted by this 2018 election. While there are many U.S. House and Senate races that already have a clear cut favorite before the race even begins, there are many other races in battleground states that could look of Congress. U.S. Congressman Beto ORourke (D-Texas) has become a formidable opponent in his extremely competitive race to unseat Republican incumbent U.S. Senator Ted Cruz in November. According to a recent Quinnipiac University poll that was conducted in midApril, the Senate race shows ORourke trailing Cruz by only three percentage points, which is well within the margin of error. ORourke is also beating Cruz on the fundraising end, hauling in a quarter of 2018 alone. A win by ORourke would completely change the political dynamics in the state of Texas, and would energize the Democratic Party in other states across the nation.

Photo courtesy of Getty Images In addition to getting out and exploring new things, encourage daily writing, coloring and expression by asking kids to creatively capture their summer experiences. Teaching kids to write and draw about things they find fun is a great way to reinforce what theyve learned and foster a love for writing. Letting kids get creative begins with the right supplies. For example, Zebra Cadoozles and Starters come in different designs to get creativity flowing. Make summer adventures more memorable by encouraging kids to capture them through these ideas: 1. Write about experiences in a journal or diary. 2. Mom and Dad can join in on the fun by writing or creating their own bullet journals using Zebra Sarasa Fineliners, Mildliners and more. Bullet journals can be perfect for planning summer activities. 3. Take photos to share with friends and family both online and in-person. 4. Draw pictures of the favorite parts of the day. An option like Zebra Zensations Colored Pencils are perfect for writing, coloring, sketching and expressing creativity for every craft and project. Theyre refillable and triangular-shaped, so they wont fall off the table. 5. Share experiences on social media. 6. Collect drawings, writing entries and photos to create a summer keepsake or scrapbook. Find more ideas for capturing summer experiences at zebrapen.com. Capture Lifes Moments FAMILY FEATURES Summer may be a break from formal education, but keeping kids excited about learning can be an easy way to keep them active and engaged instead of zoned out on screen time. The National Summer Learning Association estimates that kids can lose up to two months of learning during the summer but involving kids in educational summer activities can prevent them from forgetting skills they learned during the school year. Encourage your kids to keep learning outside of school with these fun and educational summer activities.Visit a Science Museum Spend a rainy day enjoying a science museum, which offers hands-on experiences to make learning fun. Kids can build on what theyve already learned and apply new discoveries when they return to school in the fall. Many museums offer special prices for families, which makes it an opportunity for the whole family to bond. Once you get home, talk about favorite exhibits or lessons and ask kids to express those memories on paper in the form of a journal entry or colorful drawing.Head to the Zoo or Aquarium At a conservation-oriented destination like an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)-accredited zoo or aquarium, kids can learn about the importance of environmentally friendly practices, animal care and welfare and more. Families can also explore the unique challenges facing endangered species and discover how members are Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE). After learning about animals that need help, kids can visit zebrapen.com/aza for fun games that reinforce what they learned. Kids can also draw their favorite animals, real or imaginary, and take a photo to enter Zebra Pens AZA SAFE contest. Prizes include zoo or aquarium tickets and items from the Zensations product line.Go on a Nature HikeHikes provide abundant nature lessons, giving kids a chance to get some exercise while exploring and appreciating their surroundings. Visit a national or local park to get some fresh air and learn about preserving nature. Along with a picnic lunch, bring along information about local wildlife and plants, and have kids search for each item on the list as a scavenger hunt. Back at home, test their memories by having them create a collage of all the things they found.See a Show at a Childrens eaterExperiencing live theater is a positive way to introduce kids to new cultural experiences. Because theyre typically short in run time, most shows can hold the attention of kids of all ages while conveying important life lessons. Pick a show with lots of interaction that can allow kids to stay focused and maybe even participate in the show. Acting out their favorite scenes, illustrating favorite characters or writing a new scene or different ending are all ways to keep the learning going after the curtains close.Join a Library ProgramSpecial summer programs at libraries can give kids a chance to enhance their reading skills. Many local libraries offer contests that challenge kids to read a certain number of books during the summer and include a series of incentives for reaching certain milestones. The reading component is often supplemented with crafts and activities to make reading fun. Extend the challenge even further by choosing a favorite book and asking kids to write or draw a sequel that takes those characters on another exciting adventure.

PAGE 8 THE STAR MAY 26, 2018SPORTS By FGS Sports Raise your hand if you put money on the Atlanta Braves to be atop the NL East on May 25. While optimists believed the Braves would be muchimproved in 2018, most believed 2018 would be a rebuilding year. Alas, just nine weeks into the season and Atlanta rules. Its time to admit that the Braves are for real, and its time to look at the possible reasons why. Surprise Power Heading into the season, one of Atlantas biggest weaknesses appeared to be their lack of power. Besides Freddie Freeman, it was hard to believe any one on the roster was a lock for 10 or 15 home runs. However, the Braves are fourth in the National League with 57 home runs to date, and second in slugging percentage behind the Cubs. A perceived weakness has turned out to be a strength. Ozzie Albies Albies has been the biggest contributor to Atlantas surprising power this season. At age 21, hes one of the youngest players in the majors, but hes also been one of the best. Among National League players, only the Nationals Bryce Harper has more home runs to date. Hes driven in nearly as many runs as Freeman while also playing the role of table-setter, leading the league in runs scored. The Bullpen For teams that are in the process of rebuilding, the bullpen is usually the last piece of the puzzle to fall into place. Having the third-highest bullpen ERA in the NL last year, there were many questions surrounding the Braves relief pitching this season. Until now, Atlanta has used six different relievers in 20 appearances in 2018, and all of them have an ERA under 3.00. Another good sign that their pitching is deep and they can rely on anyone coming out of the bullpen. The Nick Markakis Revelation The Braves expected the 34-year-old Markakis to be a steady and consistent part of their lineup this season, but they did not expect him to have arguably the best season of his has an OPS (on-base plus slugging) over .900 and he has provided more than adequate protection for Freeman. If Markakis stays consistent and continues to produce, he has a fair chance to contend for a batting title and set a new careerhigh for home runs. Everyone Else Atlanta is getting contributions from nearly everyone on the roster. Catchers Kurt Suzuki and Tyler Flowers have been more productive offensively and defensively Ender Inciarte has struggled at the plate, but is still making an impact with his speed and defense. Ryan Flaherty and Johan Camargo have both base. And, rookie Ronald Acua Jr. has hit the ground running after his promotion to the big leagues. He has been impressive excitement surrounding this surprising, young team.

MAY 26, 2018 THE STAR PAGE 9 MAY 22, 2018Good evening, Georgia. I stand here tonight grateful to the thousands of you who have joined me on this drive to history. We are writing the next chapter of Georgias future. Where no one is unseen, unheard or uninspired. A Georgia where we prosper together! Stacey Evans and her campaign and all of her supporters tonight for a hard-fought race. And I know for the journey that lies ahead, we need every voice in our party and every independent thinker in the state of Georgia energized, and by our side to succeed, so I hope future. But our mission is about more than success at the ballot box in November. Our mission is to see beyond the challenges that face us, to create a Georgia where our dreams and aspirations become real and lasting legacies. A state of excellent schools, with jobs that create wealth and opportunity, and good leaders who stand up for all of us. Because that is why we are here. To ensure that all Georgians from farmers in Montezuma to mill workers in Dalton know we value them. That educators in Sparta and airport workers in College Park former prisoners across our state working towards more know we believe in their redemption. We are here to ensure that everyone who calls Georgia home has the freedom and opportunity to thrive -to live their very best lives! I am a product of the power of that mission. I am the child of a shipyard worker and a college librarian, who were called to become United Methodist ministers. A proud daughter of the Deep South. I grew up the second of six children in a family where we struggled to stay above the poverty line, but we never struggled to know what was right or to believe in our possibilities. My parents instilled in us the core values of faith, family, service and responsibility. Hard work is in my bones. So is a deep respect for those who wake up early and come home tired but ready to read to their kids or change clothes for a second job. And all those who are just getting by or are doing well but worry for the next generation. A respect for those who care for their loved ones or who have earned their rest and retirement. A respect for our service members, their families and veterans that call our state home. Our campaign, and our work, is for them and their security as we shape the future of this state we love. In this tough race to come, we the solid ground beneath our feet. But we must remember were in the state where the red clay gives life to generations of dreamers. The state where Martin marched on ballot boxes and challenged a nations conscience. The Georgia that gave us the Godfather of Soul and the queen of the Met and that sent a peanut farmer to the Our states rich, complicated history courses through our memories on nights like tonight. When the unexpected becomes truth, it reminds us of who we are how weve stumbled and commands that we embrace our obligation to live up to Georgias tradition of pride and of promise, to remember our complex roots Together, we will shape a future with boundless belief and historic investment in our children at the core of every decision we make. That means and real pathways of opportunity from cradle to career. Because when all of Georgias children have a chance to reach their potential, regardless of their zip code or their familys salary, we can reach our potential as a state and unleash the full power of our people. Thats why public schools must remain the beating heart of Georgia to propel our young people toward lives of security, happiness and achievement. But even as I speak here tonight, public education is under assault in our state, with our kids and our educators being told to do more and more with less and less. As the states Public Education Governor, I will use every tool we have to ensure that we stop shortchanging our children and sabotaging our futures. Our children deserve better than a basic education. They deserve excellence no matter where they learn; and, together, we will deliver. We deserve an economy that works in all 159 counties, and gives Georgians the freedom to do more than just survive. We deserve a diverse and inclusive economy, one where everyone can succeed. That gap between struggle and success has too often been overlooked by our leaders. Together, we will renew the respect for the dignity of region of Georgia. Including who made tonight possible. Everybody wins when we choose to honor hard work with wages you can raise a family on. We can invite corporations to our communities, and at the same time, invest in the thousands of small businesses that keep our neighborhoods alive. I will be a governor who brings more than jobs to Georgia together, we can build career pipelines in renewable energy, spur creativity through a growing entertainment industry, and increase the strength of our trade unions to grow an economy that lifts every Georgian. We can build an economy as strong and diverse as our citizens. A state where we can give our people license to dream and the opportunity they deserve to achieve. Across Georgia, we are ready for more. I was down in Macon a few months ago, where I met Pam, a proud mother about to send both of her daughters teach, the other wants to study criminology. The one who wanted to be a teacher was a few months away from giving birth to her own child. Pam understood that for her daughter to have a brighter future, she would spend the next four years raising her grandchild. A choice she made readily, because she dreamed of more for her girls. She is determined that both her girls pursue degrees she never received. Then I asked Pam about her dreams beyond her daughters, beyond her grandchild, what did she dream for herself. And, honestly, she looked at me like I was crazy. Finally, Pam told me shed been a cashier at the Piggly Wiggly for twenty years, and thats what shed be doing for the rest of her life. So I asked again, what did she want for herself. She hesitated and then told me that no one had she told me: Theres a building down the road from my house in South Macon, and one day, Id love to turn it into a daycare facility. To help young women like my daughter not have to give up on their dreams. Maybe even give them a new skill. And help kids get a head start. But, she told me, no one would ever loan her the money because who was she to want so much? Im running for governor because Georgia must invest in Pam, Inc. To see her dreams as vital and real and necessary and true. Because as excited as we may become come to Georgia, we can grow the Georgia 5000 by investing in our people and their solutions for our state. When they hire 10 more neighbors and serve a generation, we all rise. With a governor who cares as much about Main Street, not only can Georgians like Pam succeed, but if we give them a chance they can lift up their entire communities. When Pam and her daughters and her grandchild prosper we are on our way to a future in Georgia that can inspire us all. Together, we stand prepared to stand up for Georgians who believe they are in this alone. Single mothers sifting through mounting bills on the kitchen table college grads battling against crushing loan payments that stand in the way of their ambition Over the last decade, Ive traveled to rural towns full of anxiety as the ground shifts beneath them We all know families battling crippling debt and the very fear that an illness or accident as they try to keep their loved ones safe and cared for To these families, and all Georgians I say: Im with you. Ive been there. Im still there. you. For Pam. For Georgia. I am running for you. Because your dreams matter to me and we can do this better together. But we have work to do in too many ways, Republican leaders have failed these folks. By being too mean and too cheap to expand Medicaid, by jeopardizing our rural hospitals for political gain, theyve put millions of Georgia families at risk. We can do better than that. I want to lead Georgia because I know we can do more: we can protect our healthcare and safeguard our kids education and their lives Together, we justice system and begin to defend our Dreamers Build the infrastructure that connects us to one another. Repeal campus carry and expand HOPE. We can lead a stronger Georgia, a more compassionate Georgia, a bold and ambitious Georgia. We can show the old-guard something new of all. I want every Georgia family to have the freedom and opportunity to thrive. You deserve nothing less, and I know our Georgia can deliver. But to claim our victory to write that next chapter and live those best lives we have a lot of work to do. We have to reach out to those who do not believe their voices matter. Who have been disappointed again and again by promises made and never kept. Who live in counties crushed by poverty and neglect. In suburbs isolated from jobs and opportunity and sometimes, each other. In cities where lack and harder to stay. In the next six months, we will work together to remake our Georgia. With your help, we will register every last person we know and we will talk to Georgians from all walks of life to engage them too. Because our campaign will be a coalition that reaches across backgrounds, sharing our constant belief in our capacity to win. And with your hands knocking and your feet walking and your voices speaking out, every Georgian we touch will understand the value and immense power of the vote. Inaction can be contagious but so can a passion for change. From our campuses to our neighborhood blocks to our senior centers, a wave is coming and I know Georgians wont stand on the sidelines. In the Book of Esther, theres a verse that reminds us we are born for such a time as this. A time to defend our values and protect the vulnerable stand in the gap and lead the way. A time to know that this democracy only works when we work for it. That is what we have done tonight and that is what we will continue to do all the way to victory in November. Because we know the power of the possible in Georgia. A Georgia that elected Shirley Clarke Franklin and Brenda Lopez and Jason Esteves and Keisha Lance Bottoms and Melanie Hammett and Sam Park. A Georgia that sees diversity as our strength and acceptance as our birthright. Thats why when I ask for your voteIm really asking you to vote for yourself. For the people you know and love, the ones you work beside and worship with. For the Georgians you may never know, but whose fate is undeniably tied to your own. These are the people on my mind tonight. And thats who will be on my mind every day as I go to work for you as your next Governor. So tonight, we celebrate we rejoice and say thank you to all who got us this far and tomorrow we hit the phones, the doors, and the streets to reach every Georgian with our message. This is our time to build a Georgia where everyone has the freedom and opportunity to thrive because our best lives are within reach. This is our moment, and this is our chance to lift up Georgia! we work, we will win! Thank you all. Now lets get it done! STACEY ABRAMSELECTION NIGHT REMARKS AS PREPARED Stacey Abrams Thanks Supporters After Historic Georgia Gubernatorial Primary Win By Jill S. Greenlee Associate Professor of Politics, Brandeis University Motherhood is taking center stage in U.S. politics. Capitol Hill with her newborn nestled in her lap. Two Democratic gubernatorial candidates, Marylands Krish Vignarajah and Wisconsins Kelda Roys, made waves with campaign ads that, in addition to touting their capabilities as leaders, also show them nursing their babies. A Democratic congressional candidate in New York, Liuba Grechen Shirley, was just granted permission from the Federal Election Commission to use campaign funds to cover the cost of child care numbers this year. Among their many experiences, roles and identities, many are emphasizing being a mom. What does this acknowledgment of motherhood tell us about U.S. politics today? As I have discussed in my work as a scholar of gender and politics, motherhood central to their candidacies. Heres why that appears to be changing. Mothers of young children not have young children. Research shows that women are less likely to have children than men, and that counterparts to not have children. If female candidates did have children, they were often adult children making their role as a mother less intensive and less central to their personal narrative at the time of their candidacy. Scholars have of government tend to do so when their children are older. Enter Hillary Clinton, whose groundbreaking presidential candidacy made motherhood central to her political appeals and policy agenda. While Clinton her child was an adult, she made motherhood a major theme in her campaign. She spoke about her own experience of raising a child. She elevated the voices of other mothers and drew attention to their concerns. And she relied on her own daughter, Chelsea Clinton who gave birth to her second child just weeks before the 2016 Democratic National Convention as a key surrogate for her on the campaign trail. By focusing on motherhood in so many ways, its possible that her historic nomination may have empowered more Negotiating motherhood Previously, female candidates with children had to deftly negotiate their role as a mother, rather than societal expectation associated with womanhood, social psychologists have found that motherhood may be at odds with public perceptions of what strong, competent leadership looks like. Moreover, women who highlight their children in campaigns may open themselves up to greater scrutiny. Voters may wonder, Who is caring for your children while you are governing? These are the types of questions that Republicans Jane Swift and Sarah Palin faced during their political careers. These are questions that similarly situated male candidates do not receive. Ironically, today, women without children may face the highest hurdle. There is some evidence that women most harshly by would-be voters because childless female candidates violate traditional expectations of women. Running as a woman Scholarship, that focuses on the issues that female candidates highlight and the types of voters they reach out to, suggests that making motherhood front and center may be a smart strategy. Scholars have found that in some electoral contexts, female candidates who highlight their gender and target female voters can build a strategic advantage. For example, as the only woman running in the Democratic primary for the Maryland gubernatorial seat, Krish Vignarajah may distinguish herself from her six male competitors when she highlights her role as a mother. Research suggests she might build women and spends more energy courting women primary voters, because these same approaches may Risks and rewards The current focus on motherhood in U.S. politics is a mixed bag. Running as a mom may open some female candidates up to the negative impact of gender stereotypes. On the other hand, some recent research suggests that gender stereotypes may no longer hinder women in the ways that they previously have. Other scholars argue that while gender stereotypes shape perceptions of female candidates, many voters ultimately cast their votes for the candidate of their preferred party, making gender and its stereotypes less consequential. Candidates who highlight motherhood risk oversimplifying their own complex motivations. They may end up perpetuating the myth that women perhaps because of motherhood are best at legislating on issues related to family life, thereby keeping them tethered to the home and hearth. Moreover, images of motherhood seen in electoral do not embrace many other forms of motherhood and mothering across racial, ethnic and other identity groups. On the other hand, when we ignore motherhood altogether, we do a disservice to all women. And, importantly, we may perpetuate the myth that women cannot or should not, to paraphrase Rep. Patricia Schroeder, have a brain and a uterus, and use them both. Source: https://theconversation.comWomen on the 2018 ballot are busting perceptions of motherhood and leadership

He was pronounced dead by a doctor at 1:50 p.m. The agency is investigating, which is standard procedure when an inmate dies in custody.

Each school needs hope. The eyes are the gateway to our souls that can litterly see down to our hearts. We must address the issues of the heart. In doing such, we must trust God. She therefore asked for the House to vote to make the statement In God We Trust to be the State of Floridas motto. This motto would be placed throughout the state, especially at the schools.

Kimberly Daniels Tashawn Gallon By The Florida/Georgia Star The shooting deaths in Parkland, Florida at a high school may change the countrys gun laws and the meth ods currently used to evaluate mental illness. It is clear that the majority of Americans are now having second thoughts about the gun laws and how and what guns are highly regulated. These high school students, along with their families and friends ex hibited their organizational skills White House with President Trump. They were extremely organized and showed no signs of bashfulness but did display anger. Their meeting was carried live as those in attendance shared their ideas. The President had a note pad, the visitors who were very attached to each other may have had notes but what they had most was determina tion to let the President know we need to change the gun laws and NRA. President Trump suggested that teachers be armed secretly. On Wednesday, it is believed that the majority of Americans watched the meeting hosted by CNN and was very disappointed that Governor Rick Scott of Florida was not present. However, Senator Mark Rubio, Republican and Senator Bill Nelson, Democrat, both of Florida, were present to make comments. Also present was a female representative from NRA.
