Ordering a sausage roll, a bottle of blue V energy drink and a three-pack of antacid tablets are among New Zealanders’ food delivery habits.

But Delivereasy director Nick Foster predicts that soon anything and everything could be delivered to your doorstep by chauffeurs, as demand for on-demand delivery increases.

During the pandemic, the on-demand food delivery industry exploded as it became an essential service for those in isolation with Covid-19.

“The on-demand delivery market in New Zealand has grown significantly over the past few years and during this time we have seen a few new international companies enter the sector, increasing competition and market share.

“Restaurant and hospitality registrations tripled from March 2020 to 2022, and we’re now running a delivery every six seconds,” he said.

The most popular dishes ordered were burgers, followed by a butter chicken curry and dumplings, he said.

Foster said trends in customer behavior here and abroad showed it was clear consumers wanted almost everything delivered on demand, not just food.

More food companies and other categories would add on-demand delivery to their services, he said.

MenuLog chief executive Morten Belling said the company started delivering food to New Zealand nine years ago and consumer behavior changed after the lockdowns, with people opting to buy without touching.

For example, the number of orders on Menulog from convenience stores such as Night ‘n Day has increased nearly 420% since April of last year.

The availability of convenience stores, which gave consumers access to everything from light meals to basics like bread and milk, was a big factor in the growth in demand, Billing said.

It also led to some pretty weird command choices.

One person ordered a sausage roll, a bottle of Blue V and a three-pack of Qucikeze, while another customer ordered just a pack of Quickeze one evening at 11:37 p.m.

“We are also seeing an increase in demand outside of the traditional dinner time period, with more customers ordering breakfast, lunch and between meals. It’s no longer about being a dinner brand, but an on-demand brand.

“We are seeing healthy competition in New Zealand, which is always great for consumer choice. He is also playing a key role in helping the restaurant and hospitality industry rebuild post Covid and continue to grow in the future.

FedEx based in Tennessee (FDX) provides expedited package delivery services to businesses and residences. I am bullish on the stock.

Throughout the first half of 2022, inflation and supply chain bottlenecks were frequent topics of conversation in the financial media. For essential and discretionary items, many people rely on FedEx to get orders fulfilled in a timely manner.

Given the aforementioned macroeconomic challenges, potential investors might assume that FedEx financial data would be disappointing this year. Still, FedEx might surprise you with its resilience and the company’s optimistic outlook for an admittedly difficult year.

Overall, savvy investors should find FedEx to offer decent yield and attractive value with its stock. The shipping industry may continue to be under pressure for some time, but FedEx should be able to manage its issues and deliver results for business stakeholders.

Stuck in neutral

If there’s a term that can describe FedEx action, it’s “limited by range.” Throughout 2022 so far, the stock does not appear to be above $250, but it also refuses to stay below $200.

Even though stock price appreciation is elusive with FedEx stock, at least the company’s long-term investors can reap decent dividend payouts. Currently, FedEx offers a forward annual dividend yield of 2%. Knowing this, income-oriented investors may consider reinvesting dividends to take advantage of the compounding principle.

Prior to a recent earnings event, FedEx had a 12-month P/E ratio of around 12, which is quite reasonable. This number could change if the value of FedEx stock increases over the next few days, but even if the P/E ratio hits the teens or 20s, the stock should still offer good value.

Still, it would be nice to see FedEx stock finally break through its range. If anything could make that happen, it would be a solid financial report. So, let’s check it out and see how FedEx fared in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2022.

Freight was great

Make no mistake: FedEx is fully aware of its problems. The company specifically cited some familiar issues many businesses face today, including “decline in shipping demand due to slowing economic growth and supply chain disruptions, as well as the increase in transport purchased and wage rates”.

Thus, any quarterly results must be understood in this problematic context. In other words, investors shouldn’t expect FedEx to knock it out of the park with the company’s quarterly data.

The first piece of good news is that FedEx managed to post moderate revenue growth. Specifically, the company posted revenue of $24.4 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $22.6 billion in the prior quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet had modeled $24.5 billion in revenue, so we can call the actual result in line with expectations.

As for net results, FedEx reported diluted/adjusted GAAP earnings of $6.87 per share. That result was roughly in line with analysts’ estimate of $6.88 per share, and it showed an improvement over the prior year’s result of $5.01 per share.

Perhaps the most notable result of the quarter was FedEx Freight’s operating margin improvement of 570 basis points to 21.8%. According to the company, “the improved results were due to a 28% increase in revenue per shipment thanks to the continued focus on revenue quality and profitable growth.”

Ted Up for a Happy New Year

While FedEx’s Freight segment has certainly performed well, the real star of the show might have been FedEx’s forecast for fiscal year 2023. To quote Argus Research President John Eade, “their forecasts are aggressive, far superior to Street’s expectations for next year. They are therefore ready to have a good year in their fiscal year 2023.”

Before various adjustments, FedEx expects diluted EPS for the full year of $22.45 to $24.45. That’s above what analysts had expected, as they braced for fiscal 2023 EPS of around $22.21. The company’s upbeat outlook may be the catalyst that caused FedEx’s stock price to surge after hours trading following the earnings release.

Clearly, FedEx Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Michael C. Lenz is gearing up to end the year strong. “We expect further momentum in fiscal 2023 and beyond as we execute our initiatives to increase profitability and returns,” Lenz said.

On top of all this, FedEx is engaged in an aggressive stock buyback program. In fiscal 2022, FedEx repurchased $2.2 billion of common stock from the company. Additionally, in the first half of fiscal 2023, FedEx plans to repurchase $1.5 billion of its common stock.

The Taking of Wall Street

As far as Wall Street is concerned, FDX is showing as a strong buy, based on 12 buy ratings and three hold ratings. The average FedEx price target is $293.86, implying an upside potential of 20.8%.

Takeaway meals

There are plenty of reasons to love FedEx now. The company buys back its own shares, which is a sign of self-confidence. Additionally, the stocks are trading at a low valuation and investors can expect to receive regular dividend payments over the long term.

So don’t worry if FedEx’s results were only “compliant”. The company’s ambitious forward-looking directions — and its ability to deliver decent results under tough conditions — should offer plenty of encouragement to FedEx shareholders today.

Sometimes what companies imagine in their attempts to maintain their profit margins is beyond us, the consumers. One of the things that gets into the news cycle is the notion of “shrinkflation.”

That’s exactly what it sounds like, the idea that the cost of the products we buy are increased by companies that essentially keep the goods the same price but reduce the amount of product we get.

Shrinkflation is just sneaky. It’s one thing when the price of the food we buy goes up 20%. We notice it, and of course we are not happy. But having the same package, staying the same price but reducing the content by 25% is shrinkage. It’s downright misleading and the last thing brands should do if they’re looking to nurture long-term relationships with their customers.

Some recent examples of shrinkage that consumers have shared on social media:

• A 32 oz Gatorade is now 28 oz.

• Wheat Thins used to weigh 16 ounces per pack, but now weighs 14 ounces.

• Some brands of toilet paper have fewer sheets.

While eating a bag of Doritos last night, I noticed that the packet had 25% less Doritos.

Some companies have been even sneakier with their cereal boxes. They kept the same height of the box but reduced the other dimensions of the box. Why? Because if you reduce the height of the box, unless all the other brands on the shelf are doing the same thing, your box looks smaller. But by reducing the other dimensions of the box, you can sell less product at your usual price and people won’t notice it immediately.

If shrinkage is an attempt by companies in tough times to increase their profit margins by offering fewer products, what about when things are looking up? When inflation drops, do we think the companies ripping us off will reverse course?

No. What they are doing now is not a course they will reverse.

Have we really reached the point where this is how companies think of consumers that has allowed them to make a profit for so many years? Obviously yes. But the problem is that consumers have nowhere to turn. As Doritos plays hard and fast with our emotions and taste buds, so will all of their crunchy competitors. While someone has to start, its success will get almost everyone following. In other words, it accumulates to create a huge cumulative loss for consumers at cash registers.

Dayle Lopez, a Seattle attorney, reminds us that it’s really not OK, that there’s a fine line here.

“False advertising comes into play here when brands intentionally reduce the amount of product they put in the same package,” he said. “It’s legal for a company to reduce the size of their packaging, but they can run into issues where they keep the same packaging and, for example, reduce the amount of product they put in by a third or a half.

In a time when brands have to fight to maintain consumer loyalty, what they really need to do is find ways to grow our dollar. Shrinkflation further tears trust between consumers and the businesses they patronize.

With consumer loyalty to brands more important than ever, it’s impossible to think of shrinkage as anything other than brands scoring on their own lens. It is hoped that they will also understand this before losing customers to competitors who keep things honest.

Despite all the innovations in restaurant logistics, marketing, and delivery automation, there’s no denying that most food purchased locally pales in comparison to the quality of food eaten fresh. Thanks to an invention by a rocket scientist that says it has solved the problem of condensation building up in packaging, we could be on the cusp of a revolution that allows more food to travel better.

Called SAVRpak, the product is a small 4-inch by 4-inch piece of vegetable paste that is cooled and then stuck inside a shipping container before leaving the store in the hands of a courier or consumer. . Harnessing the power of thermodynamics – not chemistry as some initially expected – these food-safe wraps absorb moisture that strips the crunch from foods such as fried chicken, pizza, french fries, onion rings and dozens of other cuisines that degrade when trapped inside an airtight box.

Bill Birgen, a rocket scientist who has worked for the US Department of Defense, NASA, DARPA and Virgin Galactic, invented the SAVRpak a decade ago after years of frustration that the sandwiches he made every Sunday nights during a week of lunches would be a soggy mess by the end of the week. His career specialty was controlling harsh environments at very high altitudes, including humidity and condensation that can degrade electronics and lead to catastrophic equipment failure, so this problem was well within his wheelhouse.

“He used it in his meals for about eight years without really talking about it, because that’s what rocket scientists do,” said SAVRpak president Scott Nelson, a former vice president of marketing at Panera. “A friend of his said to him, ‘Hey, silly, that’s a big deal, you know. We could probably do something with that. So here we are.”

A mission to end soggy food

Asked what motivated him to leave such a big job for a startup, Nelson said his years at Panera – including the first six months of COVID – highlighted the lack of innovation in the world of technology. packaging, which has become a much bigger issue as much of the restaurant business has shifted to off-premises channels.






President Scott Nelson joined SAVRpak in 2021.


“When we get this delivery food, it’s soggy, the fries are wet, the burger buns are wet because condensation is forming in those containers,” he said. “Pizza isn’t as crunchy and crunchy as it should be…what we’re doing is ending soggy food.”

When asked if placing the chilled dough product in a small delivery package could create its own issues, such as food chilling, he said testing has proven that “temperature trends don’t were not statistically significant. He added that the company also traveled to Canada to conduct extensive testing on the fries with McCain Foods, the world’s largest maker of frozen potato products.

Breaded and fried products show the most positive results to date, with pizza, chicken of all kinds and appetizers like mozzarella sticks and onion rings all “absolutely amazing” when baked. packaged with one of the moisture absorbing packs.

“The question is, what is it not working well with?” Nelson asks. “We’re always trying to figure that out because we’re looking for things that we know will work well, but I’m sure there are things that it doesn’t work well with, but we cover most of the delivery stuff. keys with what we do.

Beyond these items, which make up the bulk of U.S. delivery and takeout, SAVRpak is also exploring large-scale applications for the technology, such as enabling product suppliers and restaurants that ship a lot of produce across the country to use the packs when transporting lettuces and herbs, for example. It is possible to significantly reduce food waste along the way.

With Mark Cuban as backer and a stack of high profile awards, SAVRpak emerged from the shadows in 2021 and used the recent National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago as a release party to showcase its humidity control product. Drop-In which extends the shelf life of products up to three times.

The company has signed a major agreement with Sysco to use the product in 75 of that company’s warehouses, as well as a number of smaller independent restaurateurs. From there, the company plans to grow rapidly, and Nelson said his team “talks to almost every major QSR, whether it’s piloting or testing.”







SAVRpak fries

SAVRpak claims its product can help French fries retain their crispiness.


While the Orange County-based company has fewer than 15 employees, Nelson said “anyone can work with us in any form,” especially large operations with 50 or more locations. The goal, of course, is to rapidly scale up production to meet the already massive demand seen by delivery volumes.

Further afield, SAVRpak is also exploring packaging partnerships so operators don’t have to travel to purchase a second product for delivery and takeout. Currently, SAVRpaks cost between 18 and 25 cents per unit.

“It’s not just an extra cost for packaging, it’s about delivering food that tastes good 30 minutes later, food that is what it’s supposed to be,” Nelson added. “I want those chefs to be proud of that item arriving at the customer’s door 30 minutes later. We’re doing this for the chefs.

Three men were charged with kidnapping another in 2019, but a BC Supreme Court judge was not convinced the kidnapping was real.

It’s a case involving guns, drugs, money, torture simulation videos and a brazen attempt to evade the RCMP by jumping over a condo balcony. of 11 floors. Abdulkadir Handule, Abdullah Abdullahi and Obinna Njoku were charged with the abduction of Arnold Hue between July 2 and July 4, 2019.

Judge Janet Winteringham wrote that the events were ‘highly suspicious’ and left her unable to prove the kidnapping charges beyond a reasonable doubt. Ultimately, Handule and Abdullahi were convicted of forcible confinement, and Njoku was acquitted.

It all started in an underground Metrotown mall parking lot where Hue claims he was kidnapped at gunpoint by the three men. Hue was transported to a Burnaby condo in a Dodge Charger driven and registered in Njoku. Security footage shows the four men entering the condo where Hue was being held for ransom until the RCMP “rescued” him on July 4.

While in the apartment, Handule and Abdullahi created mock torture videos of Hue, including one where he was tied up in a bathtub with a fake blood substance smeared around the bathroom to make it appear as if he was tied up in a bathtub. they had cut off Hue’s thumb. Other videos showed Hue crying and being tied up with string in one of the condo’s bedrooms. Text messages obtained by police show the pair discussing whether to make it look like they were torturing Hue to get a stranger to pay a higher ransom.

Njoku was not present for much of Hue’s lockdown, including creating the videos. However, he was present when the RCMP arrived.

When the RCMP entered the condo on July 4, Handule, Abdullahi and Njoku fled to the balcony and began descending to the lower floors of the building. Handule was found on a balcony a few floors down with a gun at his feet, Abdullahi fell to the ground was found in a rhododendron bush, and Njoku fled to a 10th floor balcony. From there, Njoku walked through a sliding glass door and attempted to blend in with the condo residents who were being evacuated. He even went so far as to pick up a small child and carry her up the stairs “much to her mother’s dismay”. Njoku was then arrested in the lobby.

Despite the evidence against them, the defendants claimed that Hue was complicit in the kidnapping in an attempt to extort money from his criminal associates.

Before July 2, Hue helped an associate named David Cheung ship packages and collect money suspected of being linked to drug trafficking. At the time, Cheung owed Hue around $6,000. Hue had agreed to help Cheung with a “favor” on June 30, 2019. In his testimony, Hue was vague about the details of this favor, changing his testimony several times. Winteringham wrote that Hue was “unable or unwilling” to recall details.

However, Hue was consistent in saying that he was ordered to receive $3,000 from unknown persons and to take that money to Metrotown Parkade where he was “kidnapped”. Hue said he used his waiting time in Metrotown to run some errands, including buying a Nike backpack. Whether on purpose or by accident, Hue parked in one of the few areas of the parade that was not visible to CCTV cameras. He said he was kidnapped by the three men, but changed details of how many guns were pointed at him and how he ended up in the Charger.

Security footage showed 44 seconds elapsed between the time the loader was seen behind a pillar where Hue was parked and his departure. Winteringham said there was no way any of the circumstances described by Hue happened within the 44 seconds. Hue also brought his backpack with him, which contained all of his belongings, which Winteringham says implies he knew he was going somewhere. Hue also took the time to lock his vehicle before getting into the Charger.

All of this left Winteringham unable to prove the kidnapping charges beyond a reasonable doubt. However, it was clear that Hue’s “kidnapping” had become confinement, leading Handule and Abdullahi to plead guilty to the lesser charge. The evidence against Njoku suggested possible involvement, but was not sufficient to prove his involvement beyond a reasonable doubt, leading to his acquittal.

Reports: Clemson should hire Michigan’s Erik Bakich as baseball coach | Clemson https://assises-image2013.com/reports-clemson-should-hire-michigans-erik-bakich-as-baseball-coach-clemson/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 02:10:00 +0000 https://assises-image2013.com/reports-clemson-should-hire-michigans-erik-bakich-as-baseball-coach-clemson/ CLEMSON — Clemson is expected to hire Michigan head coach Erik Bakich to lead its baseball program, according to multiple reports.

CLEMSON — Clemson is expected to hire Michigan head coach Erik Bakich to lead its baseball program, according to multiple reports.

Bakich, who began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant at Clemson in 2002, led the Wolverines program for almost exactly 10 years. He was the 2019 National Coach of the Year after leading Michigan to second place in the College World Series.

The 44-year-old former East Carolina replaces Monte Lee, who was fired as Tigers coach on May 31. Clemson has missed the NCAA Tournament in consecutive seasons, the first such streak since the mid-1980s.

Bakich may have led the Big Ten’s most consistent program at Michigan. After not making the playoffs in his first two years at Michigan, the Wolverines have appeared in the NCAA Tournament in five of the last seven campaigns, excluding the COVID-shortened 2020 season. They’ve also finished above .500 in Big Ten play every year Bakich served as head coach.

Before coming to Michigan, Bakich was the head coach of Maryland from 2010 to 2012. There, the Terrapins finished with 17 wins in his freshman year, but won 32 in his third and final season.

Bakich has a clear connection to Clemson having worked under Jack Leggett in 2002. But he also spent the next seven seasons helping a branch of Leggett’s coaching tree, former assistant Tim Corbin (1994-2002), to make Vanderbilt a college baseball powerhouse. Bakich served as scouting coordinator and batting coach for the Commodores and worked with outfielders.

As a scout, Bakich helped Vanderbilt land the nation’s top-ranked class in 2005. Perhaps his biggest scouting victory came in shock to future No. 1 overall David Price, who then finished second in voting for the 2010 Cy Young Award with the Tampa Bay Rays.

During his time alongside Corbin, the Commodores recorded 54 wins in 2007, while they also had 40+ seasons in 2004 and 2008. Corbin then led Vanderbilt to national titles in 2014 and 2019 – this last a win over Bakich’s Wolverines.

Clemson athletic director Graham Neff hopes Bakich can breathe some life into a baseball program that has strayed from its usual standards in recent seasons. Not only have Clemson missed the tournament in consecutive seasons, but the Tigers finished 25-27 in 2021 – the program’s first losing season since 1957. They bounced back to finish 35-23 overall in 22, but a 13-16 record in the ACC game – after a 2-9 start – made Clemson the last team to qualify for the conference’s 12-team tournament.

Lee, a former College of Charleston head coach and South Carolina assistant, finished with a 242-136 record in seven seasons in charge of the Tigers. He was making $500,000 a year coaching the Tigers. Bakich earned around $800,000 a year in Michigan.

“We’re incredibly optimistic about our work and the profile of our work as a top 15 job and the interest it would have,” Neff said at a May 31 press conference. “And, again, our desire to win, and win big, and the necessary investment and resources that would entail, we’re ready to present a great package.”

[This article by Andy Miller and Lauren Sausser first appeared in Kaiser Health News, republished with permission]

When Dr. Roy Guerrero, a pediatrician in Uvalde, Texas, testified before a U.S. House committee on gun violence on Wednesday, he told lawmakers of the horror of seeing the bodies of two of the 19 children killed in the Robb Elementary Massacre. They were so pulverized, he said, that they could only be identified by their clothes.

In recent years, the medical profession has developed techniques to help save more gunshot victims, such as the rapid evacuation of patients. But trauma surgeons interviewed by KHN say even these improvements can only save a fraction of patients when military-style guns inflict the injury. Suffering from gaping wounds, many of the victims died at the scene of the shooting and never made it to the hospital, they said. According to surgeons, victims arriving at trauma centers seem to have more injuries than in the past.

But, the doctors added, the weapons used are not new. Instead, they said, the problem is that there are more of these particularly deadly weaponsand these weapons are be used more frequently in the mass shootings and daily violence that plagues communities across the country.

Doctors, frustrated by the carnage, are calling for sweeping measures to curb rising gun violence.

Weeks after the Uvalde school shooting, it remains unclear what steps the country will take to prevent another attack of this magnitude. The House passed measures to reduce gun violence on Wednesday and Thursday, but approval in the Senate appears uncertain at best.

Many doctors agree that something substantial needs to be done. “One solution will not solve this crisis,” said Dr. Ashley Hink of Charleston, South Carolina, who was working as a trauma surgery resident at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2015 when a white supremacist killed nine black members of the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. “If anyone wants to hang their hat on a solution, they clearly aren’t knowledgeable enough about this issue.”

Weapons fired in mass shootings — often defined as incidents in which four or more people are shot — aren’t just military-style rifles, like the AR-15-style weapon used at Uvalde. Trauma surgeons said they are seeing an increase in the use of semi-automatic handguns, like the one used in the Charleston church shooting. They can hold more ammo than revolvers and fire faster.

Overall, gun violence has increased in recent years. In 2020, firearm injuries have become the leading cause of death among children and adolescents. Firearm-related homicides increased nearly 35% in 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in May. Most of these deaths are attributed to handguns.

Yet trauma surgeons such as Dr. Rob Todd at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta blamed military-style rifles and the end of the nationwide ban on assault weapons in 2004 for higher levels of deadly gun violence.

A recently published study by JAMA Network Open revealed that for every mass shooting death, approximately six more people were injured. Trauma surgeons interviewed by KHN said the number of injuries per patient appears to have increased.

“I feel like we’re seeing an increase in the intensity of violence over the past decade,” Dr. Joseph Sakran, trauma surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He cited the number of times a person is shot and said more gun victims are shot at close range.

Survival rates in mass shootings depend on several factors, including the type of firearm used, the proximity of the shooter, and the number and location of injuries, Dr. Christopher Kang of Tacoma, Washington, who is president-elect of the American College of Emergency Physicians.

Several recent shootings left few survivors.

The perpetrator of the Charleston massacre shot each of the nine people who were killed multiple times. Only one of these people was taken to hospital and when he arrived he had no pulse.

Last year, shootings at three Atlanta-area spas left eight people dead – only one person shot survived.

Chaos at the scene of a mass shooting — and the presence of an “active” shooter — can add crucial delays to getting victims to the hospital, Dr. Jean Armstrong, professor of surgery at the University of South Florida. “With high-energy weapons, you see more injury, more tissue destruction, more bleeding,” he added.

dr. Sanjay Guptaa neurosurgeon who is chief medical correspondent for CNN, wrote about the energy and force of gunshots of an AR-15 style rifle, the type also used in the recent mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. This energy is equivalent to dropping a watermelon on cement, Gupta said, citing Dr. Ernest Mooredirector of surgical research at Denver Health Medical Center.

Medical advances over the years, including lessons learned from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, have helped save the lives of shooting victims, said Armstrong, who trained Army surgical teams American.

These techniques, he said, include the proper use of tourniquets, rapid evacuation of casualties, and the use of “whole blood” to treat patients who need large amounts of all blood components, such as those who have lost a significant amount of blood. some blood. It is used instead of blood which has been separated into plasma, platelets and red blood cells.

Another effective strategy is to train bystanders to help shooting victims. A protocol calledStop the bleedingteaches people how to apply pressure to a wound, dress a wound to control bleeding, and apply a tourniquet. Stop the Bleed came after the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were killed.

The CDC, which for the past two years has been able to conduct gun research after years of congressional bans, has funded more than a dozen projects to address the problem of gun violence from a perspective of public health. These projects include studies of gunshot wounds and the collection of data on gunshot wounds in emergency rooms across the country.

For some doctors, gun violence fueled political action. dr. Annie Andrews, a pediatrician at the Medical University of South Carolina, is running as a Democrat for a U.S. House seat on a platform to prevent gun violence. After the school shooting in Uvalde, Andrews said, many women in her neighborhood asked, “What can be done about this? I worry about my children. »

dr. Ronald Stuart, chair of surgery at San Antonio University Health, told KHN that those shot at Uvalde had wounds from “high-energy, high-velocity” bullets. Four of them, including three children, were taken to University Hospital, which provides high-level trauma care.

The hospital and Stewart had seen such carnage before. In 2017, San Antonio Hospital treated victims of the Sutherland Springs church shooting that left more than two dozen people dead.

Two of the four Uvalde shooting victims have been released, University Health spokeswoman Elizabeth Allen said, and the other two remained hospitalized Thursday.

It will take a bipartisan effort that does not threaten Second Amendment rights to make meaningful changes to what Stewart, a gun owner, called a “significant epidemic.” Stewart noted that public safety measures have reduced unintentional injuries in car crashes. For intentional violence, he said, no progress has been made.KHN (Kaiser Health News) is a national newsroom that produces in-depth journalism on health issues. Along with policy analysis and polling, KHN is one of the three main operating programs of KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation).

NEW YORK (AP) – Promised: new images. New testimony. New and damning revelations designed to eliminate all doubt. Hired to pack everything for the airwaves: a former president of network news. The time slot: 8:00 p.m. on the East Coast, once a hotspot for the nation’s most important television programming.

Presented in prime time and carefully calibrated for a viewing audience (itself increasingly an anachronism), the January 6 ratings debut was, in essence, a summer rerun. Conceived as a gripping legislative docudrama about an event most of the country saw live 18 months ago, it tried mightily to break new ground in a nation of short attention spans and endless distractions.


But did he? Can he? Even with gripping, violent video and the integrity of American democracy potentially at stake, a brilliant week-long production that continues with yesterday’s news – news that has been watched, processed, and debated until nausea – break through the static and make a difference today?

“The idea of ​​a televised investigative process perhaps seems a bit outdated when so many people already had so much access to what happened,” said Rebecca Adelman, professor and chair of media studies. and communication at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. “It’s a population that is obviously tired of a lot of things. I don’t know how much sustained attention anyone has left at this point.”

That’s why the hearings needed a key component that most legislative committees lack: a professional TV executive – someone who could curate and curate violent amateur and surveillance videos, 3D motion graphics, eyewitness accounts and depositions in a script constructed to echo.

Enter James Goldston, former president of ABC News. The language used by Axios to signal its involvement was instructive. Goldston, he said, would approach Thursday night’s hearing “as if it were a blockbuster special investigation” with “the ingredients of a national event.”

These are not often words you hear about a committee hearing. These are the words of showmanship – something politics always had, real governance less so.

During the highly publicized (for its day) Kennedy administration, historian Daniel J. Boorstin coined the term “pseudo-event” – an event staged expressly for the purpose of being noticed. While this is not the case with the January 6 hearings – real governance is underway – the buildup and presentation makes it easy to conclude otherwise.

Could this be the only way to get the public’s attention? After all, since January 6, 2021, much of America has moved on to new worries.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, seized on some of them in a series of tweets attacking the committee. ‘When is the prime time hearing,’ he asked in six tweets, followed by ‘on $5 a gallon of gas’, ‘on formula shortages’, ‘on crime records in Democratic-run cities,” “on left-wing riots in 2020,” “on record grocery prices,” “on Democrats attacking parental rights at school board meetings,” and “on threats against Supreme Court justices and their families.”

By many appearances, the country is functioning as it was before the uprising. Joe Biden was inaugurated as scheduled 14 days after the uprising. No evidence of voter fraud has surfaced. The pandemic has receded. People talk about gun prices and gasoline prices and Russia – not its interference in the US election, but its invasion of Ukraine.

All of this, of course, belies the fact that the Capitol Riot undermined the sanctity and security of the democratic process. After more than 200 years in which the peaceful transfer of power has been taken for granted in America, suddenly and very violently it has not.

And yet, in this meme-soaked era where loud events fade from consciousness and are replaced by other loud events within days, what is apparently needed is what is essentially a very special episode of Congress, packaged like a documentary brimming with video and text clips – screenshots of messages, to catch the audience’s attention.

And this audience is… who, exactly?

The masses of Donald Trump supporters and opponents who have dug their heels in on both sides — those who think it’s ridiculous political posturing and those who insist that day posed an existential threat to democracy — don’t may not be the target audience. More likely, it’s the Americans who keep an open mind and have somehow moved on; who could use an encore in the most American way possible: being presented with on-screen drama to consume. (Unless you watch Fox, who vehemently refused to air it.)

High-profile public legislative hearings into the workings of government—from the Army-McCarthy hearings in 1954 to the Watergate hearings in 1973 to the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987—have a history of capturing the nation’s attention and being the essential version of their time. -see government television.

But this all happened back when a “telephone” was something that made calls and was plugged into the wall – long before the era of media fragmentation produced by the internet and, a decade later, the rise social media and content creation in your pocket.

The raw material presented Thursday evening was sometimes banal and procedural (depositions, speeches). But at times (the violent and profane video montage, the eyewitness account of Capitol Police officer Caroline Edwards), it was compelling, terrifying, and immediate.

“We lost the line! We lost the line! viewers heard a Capitol Police officer scream as he was attacked by rioters. Shouted another, terror in his voice: “Officer down! And this chilling cry, in the background of a scene of chaos: “We are coming!”

Then the production values ​​took center stage – a perfectly timed voiceover of Trump saying, “They were peaceful people: and ‘love in the air, I’ve never seen anything like it. “before the streak disappeared.

These are surely the moments that will be cannibalized on social media in the hours and days to come. Much of the political discourse takes place online these days, and what was once unmissable on TV is now on your phone, on demand. Content producers on TikTok, Twitter and Instagram create unforgettable moments. And if it was a produced TV show, it would be his little offspring.

“People will create their own fallout, seconds at a time,” said Robert Thompson, director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University. “Now…we’re in the age of developing stories as an interactive video game, where you take the coverage of that day and turn it into a meme and get 30 million viewers. I think that’s is how many people will experience these hearings.

So check your social media feeds, 2022 style, for the next phase of this drama – political, entertaining and unsettling all at once, and aggressively messy American.

“We looked at the pre-season. We have followed the season. And now it’s behind the scenes of “American Politics: The Sport,” said Western New England University historian John Baick. “I don’t think anyone remembers where he was when he watched the Capitol Investigations.”
