So far, Jay Kay & Co. have released two new tracks “Automaton” and “Cloud 9” – both are stellar additions to their already amazing library. It’s always nice, though, to go back in their catalogue and enjoy the songs that made them what they are today.Full Video Of Jamiroquai Performance From 20 Years Ago Has Surfaced [Watch]The group, who take their name from a native American tribe, has now shared a pro-shot video of “Seven Days in Sunny June” from their 2005 Dynamite record.

Governor Tom Wolf: Medicaid Block Grant Effort Could Cut Health Coverage for Children, Seniors, and Addiction Treatment January 23, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Healthcare, Human Services, Medicaid Expansion, National Issues, Press Release, Public Health, Seniors Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today said the federal government should not pursue a block grant program that would cut funding for Medicaid coverage for many hard-working Pennsylvanians and their families, including seniors getting nursing and home care, people with disabilities, children and those being treated for substance use disorder.“The current plan to replace the Affordable Care Act would cut health care for our most vulnerable residents, including children, seniors, and individuals suffering from opioid and heroin addiction,” Governor Wolf said. “This will have a devastating impact for many Pennsylvanians, and I will fight any attempt to cut coverage for hard-working families and seniors.”Shifting Medicaid to a block-grant program has emerged as part of a still unknown plan to follow the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A plan introduced in 2012 by the current Speaker of the House to block-grant Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) would lead to funding reductions of approximately one trillion dollars in just a decade, and impact services that could result in:Seniors and children losing their health insurance;Some of our most vulnerable Medicaid enrollees losing access to drug and alcohol treatment, which is essential in battling the opioid and heroin public health crisis that took over 3,500 lives in Pennsylvania in 2015;Nursing home care for Pennsylvania seniors put at risk;Closures of rural hospitals and put rural health care in danger.Governor Wolf has already contacted U.S. congressional leadership and Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation, warning of the impact on these populations and communities from a repeal of the Affordable Care Act.Pennsylvanians are encouraged to share their Medicaid stories with the Department of Human Services here.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf read more
The validation process involvesadjudication at the regional and directorial levels for one week before thecases go to the national level (for another three weeks). BACOLOD City – “Why me? Why is thishappening to me?” Lieutenant Colonel Jovie Espenido, sacked deputy director foroperations of the Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO), asked this yesterday as hefaced the local media. Minutes after Espenido’s Bacolod Citypress conference, PNP chief General Archie Gamboa in Camp Crame, Quezon Cityindicated the police official could be further investigated for violating thegag order he issued. On July 30, 2017 Ozamiz City’s MayorReynaldo Parojinog and 14 others were killed in a shootout led by Espenido whowas serving search warrants at Parojinog’s properties in barangays Baybay SanRoque and Baybay Santa Cruz. “Why are you resorting to characterassassination? Nagpapakita lang ba nakayo ay guilty?” Espenido asked. “Bakitako? Bakit natabo sa akin (ito),” lamentedEspenido. “Hindi man ako politician. Dapat tigilan na ang pag-accuse sa akin.” Regarding Gamboa,he said, “May authority talaga siya right then and there na makapagsabi na ‘go’or ‘no. Because that is the prerogative of the chief PNP. Ikaw ang chief PNP,baka mabalikan ka, kasi ang mga tao nakatingin sa ’yo.” Espenido was removed from the BCPO twoweeks after describing Bacolod City as “shabulized”. PNP’s National Adjudication Board,under deputy chief for administration, Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan, hasone month to finish the validation of the information on these police officers. The PNP chief had been mum on the 356policemen included in the government’s drug watch list despite repeatedquestions from the media. “We have internal mechanisms. I willdeal with him internally,” Gamboa said. The narco list is a consolidation ofintelligence and other reports from various law enforcement agencies and stillneeds to be validated. Prior to holding yesterday’s pressconference here, Espenido on Monday issued a statement seemingly criticizingthe PNP for his inclusion in the narco list. He said there was a “failure ofintelligence.” The police officer, now on floatingstatus at the office of the Philippine National Police director in Camp Crame,did not say if these politicians were based in Bacolod City or NegrosOccidental, or elsewhere in the country. “I will deal with Espenido squarely asthe chief PNP and he being a member of the PNP,” Gamboa told reporters on thesidelines of the 1st anniversary of the Integrity Monitoring and EnforcementGroup in Camp Crame. It was Secretary Eduardo Año of theDepartment of Interior and Local Government who confirmed that Espenido was inthe narco list. He then advised Espenido to clear himself by undergoing the PNPvalidation process. Gamboa, however, did not specify howthe PNP would deal with Espenido’s statements. Police Lieutenant Colonel Jovie Espenido will undergo summary hearing for violating the gag order of the Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, General Archie Francisco Gamboa. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN Gamboa said he will submit the resultof the validation during the joint command conference of the PNP and the ArmedForces of the Philippines with President Rodrigo Duterte on March 5. He promised the policemen he would nothumiliate them by revealing their names, said Gamboa. Both Parojinog and Espinosa werelinked by President Rodrigo Duterte to illegal drugs. In November 2016, Espenido was alsothe police chief of Albuera, Leyte when its mayor, Rolando Espinosa Sr., waskilled in a shootout as police were attempting to serve a search warrant. Prior to his Bacolod City assignment,Espenido had stints in, among others, Albuera, Leyte and Ozamiz City in MisamisOccidental. In an interview with online news siteRappler, Espenido said there was “a failure of intelligence-gathering because hindi nila nai-process.” Espenido confirmed yesterday that thevalidation process on him had started. He said policemen already visited hishouse in Isabel, Leyte and even took photos. The police official believed he mayhave ruffled the feathers of some politicians in his assiduous campaign againstillegal drugs. He stressed he does not believecolleagues in the police service plotted to besmirch his reputation becausethey shared the same mission – stop drug trafficking. He accused unnamed “influentialpoliticians” of scheming to include his name in the government’s list ofpolicemen with alleged links to illegal drugs. The list also includes localgovernment officials and judges, among others. Espenido said he told his family tocooperate with the police. (With a reportfrom the Philippine News Agency/PN) read more
