Assured Home Health wants to remind you to get your Flu Shot. FLU SHOTS SAVE LIVES
Influenza, commonly called the “flu” is a contagious viral infection that affects the respiratory system- your nose, throat and lungs. If you’re 65 or older, a flu shot is your best protection against the flu.
It all comes down to this: Election Night 2016 Whichever way it goes, history will be made. In line with that, television history also will be made on Election Night 2016, since it’s guaranteed that the result will be something news operations never have covered before. Calling the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 8, the Super Bowl of network news is no exaggeration – especially since the occasion comes only once every four years. It’s a given that staffs and resources will be deployed in full force to report on the outcome of the presidential race between the principal candidates: the first woman possibly elected to the office, and a new-to-politics business magnate. Several broadcast networks will be all-in during primetime, waiting to announce whether the Democrats retain the White House with former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or the Republicans reclaim it with Donald Trump. Certainly, the path to the point where voters go to the polls has been colorful and controversial this time, a fact sure to be recapped – with plenty of specifics – throughout the night. Expect to see plenty of each network’s major anchors and political-show hosts before, while and after the returns come in. ABC will feature David Muir, George Stephanopoulos and recent debate comoderator Martha Raddatz prominently; Scott Pelley and past and present “Face the Nation” moderators Bob Schieffer and John Dickerson will be showcased by CBS; NBC will offer Lester Holt, who also moderated the first presidential debate, and “Meet the Press” Chuck Todd; and PBS’ coverage will be steered by “NewsHour” co-anchors Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff. On the cable side, CNN will have Anderson Cooper (who moderated the second debate, along with Raddatz), Wolf Blitzer and such political correspondents as Dana Bash, Gloria Borger and John King. Fox News Channel surely will give Megyn Kelly a showcase role that night, with third-debate
moderator Chris Wallace; MSNBC is certain to involve Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, with likely participation from the “Morning Joe” team of Joe Scarborough (a former congressman) and Mika Brzezinski; and C-SPAN, whose business is purely politics, will have the bulk of its work force on duty. Here are some things to watch for this Election Night ... and this Election Night very particularly. Which states voted which way: How many of the most pivotal states cast their ballots, and the important electoral votes, may give a solid indication of the win in the early hours after the first polls close. How early – or not – the race is called: The percentages of support have been shifting, depending on the given point in time, so this race ultimately might or might not end up being a tight one. The victory speech of the winner: Both Clinton and Trump have been so pointed in their criticisms of each other (remember, there was no handshake at the start of Debate No. 2), it will be interesting to see whether the triumphant one even mentions the other by name once it’s all over. The concession speech of the other candidate: And once it is all over, the words and tone of the person who didn’t get to the Oval Office also will be highly intriguing to gauge. The “spin” of each candidate’s principal support staff: The on-air arguing has been rather fierce on the part of many backers of each candidate, so after America has spoken and the results- are in, how strong their respective positions remain will be another curiosity. The post-result commentary by certain reporters: Though journalists are taught to keep their opinions out of their comments, some of them have had “encounters” along the campaign trail, either with the candidates themselves or with their handlers. When the contest is done, will they have remarks about those occasions? We shall see.
