Molly Moo Cow. 10/2/22. Paul Goldfinger photo.

Molly comes to us from the cast of the OVID movie called “A Cow’s Life.”  She’s from France but has mooved here to learn the ways of American media since it seems to her that our media may crash and burn.

She speaks French and says, “Mo de Lo.”   The Lo is spoken with a nasal twang.  It  means, “Cut the grass.”

MATT BERRY.  “October Sun”

 

Take my rod down to the sea
And then catch some fish for you and me
There’s a black cloud that swirls above the bay
Like a bad dream that never goes away
Rise up and please don’t wake the crew
Fetch a lifeboat just for me and you
There’s an ill wind that blows across this day
Like a bad dream that never goes away

Modern Healthcare.

 

The Centers for Disease Control has changed its position on mandatory masking in health care settings, no longer recommending that it be universal.

It’s a “major departure” from the CDC’s previous recommendation of universal masking to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, The Hill says.

“Updates were made to reflect the high levels of vaccine-and infection-induced immunity and the availability of effective treatments and prevention tools,”

Even if masking is not universally required, if a provider works in a part of the facility experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak, or if they care for immunocompromised patients, they should wear a mask.

When transmission levels are high, masking is recommended for everyone in a health care setting when they are in areas of the health care facility where they could encounter patients.

Providers can choose not to wear masks when they are in “well-defined areas” that are restricted from patient access, like staff meeting rooms.

By Paul Goldfinger, MD.  Editor Blogfinger.net. 9/30/22

 

The photographs coming out of the Ian hurricane reporting are mostly horrendous, but sometimes they are beautiful art at the same time.

It was perhaps in the 1930’s that war photography  was recognized as sometimes being beautiful while it was bringing the story to newspapers and magazines at the same time.  Robert Capa, the Pulitzer winning war photographer, went to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War and also went in on D Day with the first wave, and his images have been shown in galleries and other collections of fine imagery.

The blending of news photography and fine art photography is widely recognized in today’s art world.

The AP photo above looks like an impressionistic painting.

You may recall Bob Bownés award winning photograph of the OG pier about to crash during Sandy.  It is dramatic and beautiful at the same time ; fine art and news imagery.

As you may know, we have a home in Ft. Myers, Florida  at a place called Tropicana Sands.   That location took the brunt of Ian, and I am receiving reports that the entire community of 470 manufactured homes is a “total disaster.”  One body has been reported plus residents have been rescued.  Fortunately Eileen and I are in NJ, and we also missed the brutal tornado that hit there  in January.

We still don’t know the condition of our home there, but the reports are not optimistic.

Now the reporting by worldwide news sources is rolling in and largely consists of still photos, drone videos and other imagery, and the  quality of that reporting is remarkable.

ice pop 2

Photograph by Paul Goldfinger. 2013.   Farmers market in Ft. Myers, Florida.

Her ice pop still hasn’t melted, and that is sometimes one of the great magical things about life and photography.

 

This city of Ft. Myers  has been hit hard by Hurricane  Ian on 9/28/22. We await reports of damage.

 

This song “I Got You Babe” is about being thankful when things go wrong:

“I got flowers in the spring, I got you to wear my ring
And when I’m sad, you’re a clown
And if I get scared, you’re always around
So let them say your hair’s too long
Cause I don’t care, with you I can’t go wrong

Then put your little hand in mine.

There ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb”
