New courses and languages on OpenWHO this month.
New courses and languages for COVID-19:
Learning how to use the COVID-19 Vaccine Introduction and deployment Costing (CVIC) tool – The aim of this course is to demonstrate the use of the CVIC tool and target national programme managers and personnel who have been involved in the costing, budgeting or financing processes of COVID-19 vaccine delivery in a country.
SARS-CoV-2 antigen rapid diagnostic testing – SARS-CoV-2 antigen rapid diagnostic tests (Ag-RDT) are being used globally to test suspect COVID-19 cases in contexts where PCR diagnostic may not be available. This course aims to provide Ag-RDT users with an understanding of the theoretical and practical components of SARS-CoV-2 Ag-RDT testing.

New courses in other topics:
WHO Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Emergencies – The objective of this course is to provide high-level information and contextual understanding of WHO Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Emergencies. The course is available in both English and French and is designed for personnel who will be assigned by WHO to go on deployment in response to health emergencies.
Recognizing and managing anaphylaxis – This course provides guidance on how to recognize and differentiate between anaphylaxis and immunization stress-related response and respond to anaphylaxis as an adverse event following immunization.

Neglected Tropical Diseases training package – NTDs are a group of diseases that affect mainly deprived populations in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Aiming to protect communities and empower healthcare workers around the world, OpenWHO has launched dedicated training resources to address some of these diseases – TungiasisPodoconiosis and Scabies – with additional courses under development.

One Health approach training:
Two new courses have become available on the OpenWHO One Health Channel. These trainings explore principles and best practices for strengthening the One Health approach for zoonotic diseases nationally and sub-nationally.
Navigating the Tripartite Zoonoses Guide (TZG). A training for advocates and implementers and the Joint Risk Assessment (JRA OT). A Training for Implementers.

New translations
The following 6 translations for COVID-19 have been launched this month:
Clinical management: Rehabilitation of patients with COVID-19 in Russian
Clinical management: Initial approach in Somali
Clinical management: General considerations in Indonesian
Occupational Health and Safety in Dutch
Neglected Tropical Diseases in the context of COVID-19 in Portuguese and Arabic
Updates to course content. A new video recording has been added to the Scientific and strategic talks on COVID-19 portal. In this new video, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove gives an overview of the epidemiologic situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and outlines the global response and way forward.

We are pleased to announce that OpenWHO now has 37 courses on COVID-19, spread across 52 languages. All courses for COVID-19 can be accessed here. You can use the toolbar to filter courses by language. You can also access our catalogues which show all courses and languages available for COVID-19 and other health-related topics here.
New Antimicrobial Resistance channel. This new channel offers learning resources to support implementation of the Global Action Plan on AMR (2015), by building health care worker competencies to help combat antimicrobial resistance in their daily clinical practice. Currently, the page hosts two courses which are available in several UN and national languages: 
Antimicrobial Stewardship. A competency-based approach and Drug-resistant tuberculosis: how to interpret rapid molecular test results.

New Stories from the field page
The “Stories from the field” page highlights how OpenWHO learning resources are being deployed in countries to support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and other health threats. To read these inspirational stories, please access the page under ‘Find out more’ in the top menu or click here.

These Are the Richest States in America

The annual median household income in the United States was $65,712 in 2019, according to estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

But that figure varies significantly among states – Mississippi had the lowest recorded median household income, at nearly $46,000 – while high-performing states approached $90,000, according to 2019 Census data. U.S. News analyzed the data for its 2021 Best States rankings, and determined which states had the highest median household income.

Rich people ditched NYC for these random cities

By Sarah Paynter

May 12, 2021 | 1:32pm

Did the wealthy really flee to Florida during the coronavirus pandemic? 

Miami was positioned as the alternative to New York City during the pandemic, but a new report shows that the Sunshine State wasn’t the top destination for wealthy buyers fleeing the Big Apple — it was Denver. 

In Miami, it’s still a buyer’s market. Only 764 luxury homes and condos sold in 2020 compared with 803 the year prior, and a glut of luxury homes and condos available for sale made the market look weak, according to a new Coldwell Banker Global Luxury report.

The hottest market is the Mile High City

Denver was the hottest luxury housing market in the US in 2020, according to the Coldwell Banker report, which weighed the pace and number of home sales against available homes on the market to determine how hot luxury markets were in 2020. 

In Denver, brokers sold 4,957 luxury homes in 2020, making the market 36.8% hotter than it was last year when comparing sales to available inventory of homes for sale.

The most expensive home that sold was $8 million, but most luxury homes sold for about $1.49 million.

“Businesses gave people the freedom not to come into the office, and we got bombarded. It was relocation on steroids with people coming from everywhere,” said Louie Lee of Coldwell Banker Realty in Colorado. 

Runners-up outside Seattle and San Francisco

Suburbs also made a good showing. King County, Washington, and California’s East Bay came in second and third as Seattle and San Francisco residents moved further out into their surrounding counties. Neither county even made the list last year.

In King County, about 4,431 luxury homes sold in 2020. The most expensive sale was $45 million, but the typical luxury home sold for $2.16 million.

The ranking is surprising since Seattle had one of the most severe early COVID-19 outbreaks in the country. But homes outside Seattle sold faster than ever as buyers sought larger homes with yards and distance from the city. 

“We also saw a market for buyers wanting a nearby second home where they could escape to a safe retreat,” said Jennifer Cameron, vice president of Coldwell Banker Bain Global Luxury.

Newark Launches Guaranteed Income Pilot Program

Newark Launches Guaranteed Income Pilot Program

(NEWARK, NJ) — On May 10, 2021, Newark 

Mayor Ras J. Baraka launched the Newark Movement for Economic Equity, a two-year research study that will give a guaranteed income, or unconditional cash payments, to Newark residents. The city will start with an initial cohort of 30 residents before scaling to 400 residents in Fall 2021. An early adopter of guaranteed income, Mayor Baraka first called for the policy in his 2019 State of the City Address. Now, Newark’s pilot will be one of the nation’s largest in collaboration with Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, a national network of mayors advocating for a guaranteed income to ensure that all Americans have an income floor.

The pilot program is one of many initiatives established by Mayor Baraka to address the economic insecurity faced by Newark’s residents, and also serves as one component of his comprehensive equitable development strategy for Newark. In a city where about one in three residents live below the federal poverty line, the pilot program will be a much-needed source of financial relief, and allow residents to stave off falling into a deeper cycle of economic insecurity. The research study will be led by the Center for Guaranteed Income Research (CGIR), and will be conducted in conjunction with Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, a national organization advocating for and supporting pilots around the country.

“We must emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic with new purpose, new vision, and new ideas to transform our community and truly improve the quality of life of our residents,” said Mayor Baraka. “Here we have an opportunity to directly empower and strengthen hundreds of lives immediately, while also demonstrating how to do so to the entire nation.” …Continue Reading.

Gavin Newsom Proposes $12 Billion to Combat Homelessness, Worse in California Than Any Other State

BY ALEXANDRA HUTZLER ON 5/11/21 AT 3:13 PM EDT

Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed $12 billion in new funding to help combat homelessness—which is worse in California than any other state in the country.

The investment would be broken into three parts: $8.75 billion for homeless housing units and affordable apartments; $3.7 billion for homeless prevention and rental support; and $1.5 billion to clean up roadways and public spaces.

Newsom’s plan to address the Golden State’s homelessness crisis was first announced in a statement early Tuesday morning. The Democrat provided more details at a press conference in San Diego.

“There’s no greater manifestation of our failure as a society broadly, or as a state more specifically, than the issue of homelessness,” Newsom said Tuesday. “And that’s what brought to bear a strategy to do something radically different.”

Newsom added, “What we’re announcing here today is truly transformative. What we’re announcing here today is truly historic. It’s unprecedented, not just in California history—what we’re announcing today is simply unprecedented in American history.

The plan, the Democrat said, aims to “functionally end family homelessness” within five years.

California had more than 161,000 people experiencing homelessness as of January 2020—a 7 percent increase from 2019— according to a federal report released earlier this year. In Los Angeles county, one of the nation’s largest counties, the number jumped 13 percent to 66,436 by January of last year.

Roughly half the country’s estimated 211,000 residents living on the streets or in vehicles reside in the Golden State alone. NEWSWEEK

A new state database showed that nearly 250,000 people sought housing services from local housing officials in 2020. Of that number, nearly 92,000 people found housing while 117,000 people are still waiting for help.

The spending proposal to combat homelessness comes as part of Newsom’s $100 billion pandemic recovery plan. The so-called California Comeback Plan will combine the estimated $75 billion budget surplus and the $26 billion the state’s expected to receive from the federal stimulus bill.

As part of the package, Newsom called for another round of direct cash payments to residents. If the plan gets approved by the Democratic-controlled state legislature, two-thirds of Californians would benefit from the $600 stimulus checks.

“Direct stimulus checks, going into people’s pockets,” Newsom said. “That direct relief, that’s meaningful.”

The plan also comes as Newsom faces a likely recall election later this year. Two weeks ago, California Secretary of State Shirley Weber announced that recall proponents had gathered enough signatures to force a special election by year’s end.

But polling has shown that opposition to the recall is growing. In January, 45 percent of Californians said they were against removing Newsom. The latest survey from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies found the amount of respondents against ousting Newsom rose to 49 percent.

Slightly more than half (52 percent) of the poll’s respondents approved of Newsom’s job performance, which was also a modest increase from the January survey.

USDA Announces Assistance for Coastal Communities; Priority for National Scenic Areas Hit by Wildfire

WASHINGTON, May 20, 2021 – U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Justin Maxson today announced that USDA is making priority funding available for coastal National Scenic Areas that have been devastated by wildfires. National Scenic Areas are environmentally protected, federally designated locations that have outstanding natural and scenic value.

“Under the leadership of President Biden, Vice President Harris and Agriculture Secretary Vilsack, USDA is committed to getting help to rural communities that have been impacted by wildfires in many parts of the country,” Maxson said. “As severe weather and natural disasters continue to threaten the livelihoods of residents and businesses in rural America, we want the communities we serve to know that USDA stands ready to help.”

USDA is reserving $2 million under the Rural Business Development Grants program for eligible projects in rural communities located on a river or ocean coastline. Priority is being given to National Scenic Areas impacted by wildfires.

Projects must be consistent with any USDA Rural Development state strategic plan, local and area-wide community and economic development strategic plans and support other economic development activities. Funds may be used to create business support centers, finance job training and support leadership development.

Eligible entities include rural coastal towns, communities, state agencies, authorities, nonprofits, federally recognized tribes, institutes of higher education and cooperatives.

Applications will be scored, reviewed and selected on a competitive basis. They must be submitted to the applicant’s nearest USDA office by July 6, 2021, at 4:30 p.m. local time. Additional information is available on page 27365 of the May 20, 2021, Federal Register (PDF, 245 KB).

Under the Biden-Harris Administration, Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities, create jobs and improve the quality of life for millions of Americans in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing; community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural, Tribal and high-poverty areas. For more information, visit www.rd.usda.gov.

USDA touches the lives of all Americans each day in so many positive ways. In the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA is transforming America’s food system with a greater focus on more resilient local and regional food production, fairer markets for all producers, ensuring access to safe, healthy and nutritious food in all communities, building new markets and streams of income for farmers and producers using climate smart food and forestry practices, making historic investments in infrastructure and clean energy capabilities in rural America, and committing to equity across the Department by removing systemic barriers and building a workforce more representative of America.

“AHRQ funding set the stage for my career and enabled me to participate in regional and national quality improvement activities and be part of advocacy and policy work in women’s and obstetrics health services research.”

Kimberly Gregory, M.D., M.P.H., was 5 years old when she decided she wanted to be doctor. Today, she has an endowed chair (Helping Hand of Los Angeles—The Mariam Jacobs Chair in Maternal Fetal Medicine) and is Professor and Vice Chair of Women’s Healthcare Quality and Performance Improvement in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, where she leads health services research projects on quality of maternity care and pregnancy outcomes.

When she began her fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine, Dr. Gregory recognized that “there were very few people doing health services research in women’s health in general, and none in obstetrics.” In particular, she saw a gap in the use of evidence-supported practices, such as vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). With her first AHRQ grant in 2002, Dr. Gregory, who is also the Division and Fellowship Director of Cedars-Sinai’s Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, identified patient factors, hospital factors, and clinical policies associated with VBAC success rates and maternal and neonatal complication rates.

One study she led found that conditions such as hypertension, obesity, and urinary tract infection history led to variation in VBAC success rates and neonatal complications.

In 2009, Dr. Gregory received another AHRQ grant to develop indicators specific to pregnancy and childbirth services using the existing AHRQ Quality Indicators™. As a result of her findings, childbirth-related anesthesia complicationschildbirth complication and morbidity rates, and childbirth-associated hemorrhage and infection, among others, met AHRQ’s criteria for inclusion in its Patient Safety Indicators. These indicators provide researchers, quality improvement experts, clinicians, and hospitals with insights into systematic ways to track data to improve quality of care and patient safety during pregnancy and childbirth.

Rising cesarean rates and maternal morbidity and mortality rates led Dr. Gregory to use her next AHRQ grant to examine regionalization of maternity care by referring high-risk women to medical centers equipped to manage their unique comorbidities. “Maternity care in the U.S. is not standardized, and disparities persist during childbirth,” said Dr. Gregory.  She conducted a study to categorize obstetrical services, resources, patient care activities, and their association with maternal and neonatal safety outcomes in 239 non-military hospitals in California.

Her study found that childbirth services, including the ability to perform a cesarean delivery within 30 minutes and 24-hour pediatrician access, varied widely across California hospitals. “These variations in hospital-level services may provide some basis for variation in the outcomes achieved by childbirth hospitals,” said Dr. Gregory. “Understanding the optimal composition of regional obstetric care is critical to improving maternal and childbirth outcomes.”

Dr. Gregory is a Professor at both the David Geffen School of Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Fielding School of Public Health’s Department of Community Health Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Gregory is currently Chair of the Women’s Preventive Services Initiative Advisory Board, fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and member of the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine, the American Gynecological and Obstetrics Association, the National Medical Association, the Association of Black Women Physicians, and the American Public Health Association.

The Lower East Side’s (Not Very Well Known) Black History

By Valeria RicciulliPhoto: Thierry Trombert

Since its founding in 1988, the Tenement Museum’s walking tours of the Lower East Side have told the stories of the European, Chinese, and Puerto Rican families who made their homes in the neighborhood throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. But they have never included the history of Black New Yorkers in the area. The museum’s founders had wanted to incorporate African American histories when its first exhibitions were being planned in the 1980s. “In researching these tenements, they thought they were going to find stories of Black New Yorkers who lived in these buildings, and they didn’t,” said Kathryn Lloyd, the director of programs at the museum. “But obviously, that’s not a sufficient answer.” The Tenement Museum is beginning to address this gap with a new walking tour called “Reclaiming Black Spaces,” which focuses on the history of people of African descent in the neighborhood, going back to when Manhattan was a Dutch colony in the 17th century. The five-stop tour, which officially launches on June 12, is part of a larger initiative to highlight the Black history that the museum has neglected, which also includes an upcoming exhibit about the Moores, a Black family who moved into an LES tenement in 1869.

Below are some highlights of the tour.

Tour Stop: 143 Allen Street, Sebastiaen de Britto’s Farm

Highlight: The farm was part of the first free Black community in North America.

What’s the story?: The land here was once owned by Sebastiaen de Britto, a formerly enslaved African who was brought to the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam from Santo Domingo in the early 17th century. De Britto and his wife, Isabel Kisana, were part of a group of 30 enslaved people who petitioned the Dutch West India Company for their freedom and were given land. After being granted so-called “half freedom” (they still had to work for the Dutch West India Company whenever they were summoned, and their children were still considered property of the company) in 1647, De Britto and at least two other freed Black families built homes and began to farm the land that is now the LES. The six-acre de Britto farm sat roughly between what is today Ludlow and Bowery, from the east to the west, and Rivington to Broome, to the north and south. The farm was part of a much larger community of free Black farms that ran along a band in the middle of the island, from around Canal Street all the way up to midtown, acting as a barrier, as Lloyd put it, between the Dutch and the Lenape settlements further north.

What remains: There’s nothing left of the de Britto farm. The land grant expired in 1650, and there’s no mention of de Britto or Kisana in historic documents after that. When the British took over New Amsterdam in 1664, they stripped away the rights of Black people, including the right to own land.

What’s there now: The landmarked Sutton House, the home of cotton trader George Sutton in the 19th century. As Lloyd said, “This land, over centuries, goes from being a site of, in some ways, freedom and advocacy for Black New Yorkers to … a site of the history of enslavement and New York’s reliance on people in bondage to build us the wealth that this city has today.”

Tour Stop: 193 Eldridge Street, Studio We

Highlight: Studio We, a community music-performance and rehearsal space built inside an abandoned building in 1968.

What’s the story? In the late 1960s, the five-story tenement at 193 Eldridge Street was, like many buildings in the city at the time, nearly falling down. It had a caved-in roof, no plumbing, and many of the floors had collapsed. In 1968, the building’s caretaker, Howard Green, was heading to Europe, and his friend, jazz trumpeter James Dubois, asked if he could take care of it. He and several other musician friends moved into the building and turned it into a jazz venue they called Studio We. They built a stage on the sixth floor and set up other performance and practice spaces throughout the building. Studio We quickly became central to the city’s Loft Jazz scene — an avant-garde form that pulled both from jazz traditions and pop genres, and was almost exclusively performed in residential settings like old tenement buildings. Dubois’s brother opened a soul-food restaurant on the first floor, where people could grab food for the performances. The space symbolized the late 1960s idea “that Black Americans should be responsible for creating the world and society they want to see for themselves,” Lloyd says. “Ideas of independence from white cultural structures and white financial structures that are dominating in the city, in society, and in jazz music at the time.”

What remains: Aside from the dark-red columns flanking the entryway to the building, nothing remains of Studio We. Dubois and his group of musician friends stopped holding performances there in the mid-1970s, but the memory of the music space was kept alive by one of its founding musicians, Juma Sultan, who went on to tour with Jimi Hendrix and have a successful musical career. Today, at 79, he lives in upstate New York, and his archive of photos and documents from Studio We’s heyday helped the museum put the story of this site together. He’s still playing gigs.

What’s there now: The brick tenement is now a condo building with five multimillion-dollar luxury lofts. A unit that sold in 2018 for $2.25 million featured exposed beam ceilings, reclaimed wood shelves, and “exposed brick whitewashed with Belgian limestone paint,” per the listing.

Tour Stop: 363 Broome Street, Engine 55

Highlight: The fire station where Wesley Williams, one of the very first Black firefighters in New York City history, started working in 1919.

What’s the story? Williams, who was from Harlem, was by no means embraced by his white colleagues: His co-workers wouldn’t eat with him, and once even left him inside a burning building. “He’s really sort of a pathbreaker, not only for being one of the first Black firefighters in the city, but we can sort of see him as a predecessor of the civil-rights movement, because he faced extreme racism entering the firehouse,” Lloyd says. Williams went on to become the first Black lieutenant in the FDNY in 1926, and was the second person in department history to earn a perfect score in the physical exam required to earn that rank. He later co-founded the Vulcan Society, a fraternal organization for Black EMTs and firefighters, dedicated to fighting discrimination in the fire department.

What remains: The Engine 55 fire station remains largely as it did then, but there’s nothing to connect it to Williams. He is instead memorialized in Harlem, where there’s a statue of him inside the Harlem YMCA , and the street where it’s located, 135th Street, was renamed Wesley Williams Place.
