PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Roman Catholic leaders in Philadelphia are predicting as many as 2 million people could turn out to see Pope Francis during his first U.S. visit as pontiff.

The pope plans to attend a World Meeting of Families event in late September and lead an outdoor Mass.
Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput on Monday says it gave him “great joy” to be at the Vatican this month when Francis confirmed the trip.

The pope also is expected to visit New York and Washington.

Lamont A. Nelson- Designer Graffiti Start-Ups Designer Music CD Covers and Signs for Community Persons, Models, Musicians, Business Leaders and Communications Reports

Lamont A. Nelson-Designer Graffiti Start-Ups Designer Music CD Covers and Signs for Community Persons, Models, Musicians, Business Leaders and Communications Reports


























Lamont A. Nelson, Designer Graffiti Artist and Model. 

Lamont A. Nelson and fellow graffiti artist hit a snag early in their attempt to start a designer graffiti company. The local businessman was having difficulty believing that their handwriting styles were accurate.

For years, Lamont kept designing graffiti on card boards cut from an empty cereal box.  One long time friend said he had been reading graffiti for 30 years and had never seen a pattern like the one Nelson submitted. 

But none sought out the designer graffiti.

Many even thought that people don’t have interest in the type of graffiti that was hand written on empty cereal boxes as Nelson did.

But Lamont knew what he was after. People did have interest in designer graffiti. And he was one of the few who wrote it.

A national designer graffiti artist, Nelson is aware that finding comfortable graffiti could be a nightmare, practically impossible. Graffiti in general had left walls, bill boards, banners, and even trains in the inner city with handwriting like scribbled letters, words and sentences. Forget the scribble graffiti favored by conventional writers. They needed murals with letters shaped like a designed P, like flare font, except neat or clean.

Lamont A. Nelson has started producing Designer Graffiti free of eye sore, content, making the designer graffiti one of the highest-profile style to change in the face of growing complaints over bad-graffiti from activist groups and some consumers.

The change—which only affects original graffiti, not other varieties like Old School Graffiti or Hip-Hop Graffiti—has been in the works since about three years ago, when Van Stone, Founder of Van Stone Productions Inc., community organization, began working to change bad-graffiti for inner city areas in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to eliminate illegal graffiti. 

The Anti-Graffiti program in Philly made it possible for graffiti artist such as Nelson to actually use designed graffiti to replace blight and vandalism in the city.

Nelson is designing music cd covers, signs and even labels in graffiti style for weather and traffic reports.  Soon he will follow up with sports reports and other type of reports featuring information written in designer graffiti handwriting.   Other graffiti writers have also said they plan to change.

And he is using his newly discovered modeling skills to help fashion become a thing about good handwriting skills as well as sexy looks.

Pope confirms Philly trip for families conference

Pope confirms Philly trip for families conference
 
AP Photo
In this photo provided by the Vatican paper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis speaks at the World Meeting of Families, an interreligious conference on traditional family values, at the Vatican, Monday, Nov. 17, 2014. Pope Francis confirmed Monday that he will travel to the U.S. next year to participate in a rally for families in Philadelphia.
 
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Organizers of the World Meeting of Families for months were coy when asked if Pope Francis would come to Philadelphia for the massive Roman Catholic-sponsored gathering.


It turns out that when the pontiff finally confirmed his attendance Monday, organizers already had gotten inside information from an unimpeachable source: Francis told Gov. Tom Corbett during a Vatican meeting in 
March that he would make the journey, his first papal visit to the United States.

"The Holy Father answered our invitation by whispering three words in Tom's ear: `I will come,'" said Susan Corbett, Pennsylvania's first lady.

Protocol kept them from saying anything publicly until now, she said at a news conference hours after the pope's statement.

Still, the timing of Francis' announcement - made during an interreligious Vatican conference on traditional family values - came as a bit of a surprise and set cellphones abuzz in Philadelphia around 3:30 a.m. EST. 

Organizers had not expected official word until later next year.

The September voyage will come at a time when the U.S. church is trying to keep Catholics in the fold, including Latino immigrants who have been joining Protestant churches or leaving organized religion in significant numbers. Expectations will also be high for Francis to address the clergy sex abuse scandals.

The World Meeting of Families is a conference held every three years in a different city to celebrate the importance of family. It will be the first pontifical trip to the U.S. since 2008.

"What an historic day, and an unparalleled day for the city of Philadelphia," Mayor Michael Nutter said. "We could not be more excited."

Details of Francis' itinerary will not be finalized until next spring or summer, officials said. But his confirmed attendance will likely help spur fundraising for the huge event. Just over half of the $45 million budget has been raised so far, said Daniel J. Hilferty, president and CEO of Independence Blue Cross who also serves on the organizing committee.

The pope is also expected to visit New York and Washington, but Vatican officials would not confirm those legs of the trip Monday. The Vatican's envoy to the United Nations strongly hinted last week Francis would visit New York to address world leaders at the General Assembly.

The World Meeting of Families, set for Sept. 22-27, will feature several days of workshops, lectures and other activities. The conference - and the events surrounding it - are open to anyone who pays the registration fee.

Francis is expected to participate in the gathering's closing days and, like Pope John Paul II in 1979, celebrate a Mass on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

"We're very, very grateful for this opportunity," said Archbishop Charles Chaput, who was at the Vatican for Francis' announcement Monday.

Organizers expect more than a million people will come to the papal events, some from as far as Francis' native South America. Hotels within a 10-mile radius of downtown Philadelphia have already sold out, and organizers are hoping local families will volunteer to host visitors.

Just last week, more than 10,000 Philadelphia Catholic schoolchildren sent handwritten notes encouraging the 77-year-old Francis to make the visit. A large crowd of enthusiastic students attended the news conference.

"Pope Francis is probably one of my favorite people ever ... I love how he's just so open about everything," said Emily McDermott, 16, a sophomore at Hallahan High School, an all-girls Catholic school. "This is amazing. Like they said, it's history, so we were all just so proud to be a part of this."
 

Man who died from Ebola endured treatment delays

Dr. Phil Smith, medical director of the Nebraska Biocontainment Care Unit, answers a question during a news conference in Omaha, Neb., Monday, Nov. 17, 2014, on the death of Dr. Martin Salia, who contracted Ebola in his native Sierra Leone, and died Monday, Nov. 17, 2014, while being treated at the Nebraska hospital. Salia died of the disease shortly after 4 a.m., Nebraska Medical Center spokesman Taylor Wilson said.
 
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A surgeon who contracted Ebola in his native Sierra Leone did not receive aggressive treatment until nearly two weeks after he first started showing symptoms - a delay that doctors said probably made it impossible for anyone to save his life.


Dr. Martin Salia was in the 13th day of his illness when he reached Omaha on Saturday. He had waited three days to be formally diagnosed after an initial test for Ebola came back negative. He then waited five more days to be flown to the United States.

By the time the 44-year-old Maryland man got to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, the deadly virus had done too much damage, shutting down Salia's kidneys and making breathing difficult, doctors said. He died Monday.

"In the very advanced stages, even the modern techniques we have at our disposal are not enough to help these patients once they reach a critical threshold," said Dr. Jeffrey Gold, chancellor of the medical center.

The virus has already killed more than 5,000 people in West Africa.

Salia, who chose to work in his homeland despite more lucrative opportunities elsewhere, was first tested for Ebola on Nov. 7, but the test was negative, and he was discharged from a treatment center in Sierre Leone.

It's not unusual to see false negative tests for Ebola in the early stages because the amount of the virus in the bloodstream is still low, said Dr. Phil Smith, the infectious-disease expert who leads the Nebraska Medical Center's biocontainment unit.

The U.S. government warns doctors to be wary of possible false negative tests for Ebola.

Salia tested positive for the disease on Nov. 10 but did not arrive at an Omaha hospital until Saturday.

Two other Ebola patients treated in Omaha this fall arrived at the hospital roughly a week earlier in their illnesses, before nausea, vomiting and more serious symptoms set in. Both of those men recovered.

Government officials in Sierra Leone promised a full investigation into the treatment Salia received.

"At this point, we can't say for certain whether it was this misdiagnosis or not that led to his death," Deputy Information Minister Theo Nicol said in a statement to The Associated Press. The government planned to request a full medical report from the hospital where he was last treated.

Salia, a permanent U.S. resident, was reportedly receiving blood from an Ebola survivor while in Sierra Leone, the government statement said. The treatment is believed to provide antibodies to fight the virus.

The government statement questioned whether "the strain of the 16-hour trip could have had a negative impact on his recovery."

Doctors with an air-transport service assessed Salia in Sierra Leone last week before deciding he was stable enough for the long flight to Nebraska.

In Omaha, Salia was placed on kidney dialysis and a ventilator and was given several medications, the hospital said. He was given the experimental Ebola drug ZMapp and received another plasma transfusion from an Ebola survivor.

"I know that we gave him every possible chance to survive. I think that his family feels confident in that as well," Dr. Daniel Johnson said Monday at a news conference.

Salia's wife, Isatu Salia, who lives in New Carrollton, Maryland, said Monday that the family believed he was treated "in the best place possible."

But by the time her husband arrived in Omaha, he was already unresponsive, doctors said.

In a Friday telephone interview, she said she had spoken to her husband and prayed with him. Although his voice sounded weak and shaky, she said he told her "I love you" in a steady voice.

Salia graduated from the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons training program in 2008. He was free to practice anywhere he wanted, but he chose to stay in Sierra Leone, where the need for surgeons is immense.

"He honestly believed that's what God wanted him to do," said Bruce Steffes, executive director of the academy.

Salia was a member of a United Brethren Church congregation in Sierra Leone, and the church helped support his medical training.

Jeff Bleijerveld, director of global ministries for the church, knew Salia through missionary work. He said Salia's death is a testament to "his Christian faith, his willingness to, if necessary, lay down his life for others."

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (CBS) – The President of Penn State University announced Saturday that he will conduct his own review of the Freeh Report.
 
The 2012 investigation conducted by former FBI Director Louis Freeh found that high-ranking university leaders at the school concealed key facts about molestation charges made against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
In a written statement on the school’s website, President Eric Barron says his decision is in response to “questions by some in the Penn State Community,” and that it “calls for an examination.”

Surgeon with Ebola coming to US for care

Surgeon with Ebola coming to US for care

In this April 2014 photo provided by the United Methodist News Service, Dr. Martin Salia poses for a photo at the United Methodist Church's Kissy Hospital outside Freetown, Sierra Leone. Salia has tested positive for Ebola and will be flown, on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, to the Nebraska Medical Center, in Omaha, Neb., for treatment.
 
FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) -- A surgeon working in Sierra Leone has been diagnosed with Ebola and will be flown Saturday to the United States for treatment, officials from Sierra Leone and the United States said.


Dr. Martin Salia was to be taken to Omaha to be treated at the Nebraska Medical Center, Sierra Leone's chief medical officer, Dr. Brima Kargbo, told The Associated Press on Friday. Salia reportedly lives in Maryland.

Salia is a general surgeon who had been working at Kissy United Methodist Hospital in the Sierra Leone capital of Freetown. Patients, including mothers who hours earlier had given birth, fled from the 60-bed hospital after news of the Ebola case emerged, United Methodist News reported.

The hospital was closed on Tuesday after Salia tested positive and he was taken to the Hastings Ebola Treatment Center near Freetown, the church news service said. Kissy hospital staffers will be quarantined for 21 days.

A Sierra Leone citizen, the 44-year-old lives in Maryland and is a permanent U.S. resident, according to a person in the United States with direct knowledge of the situation. The person was not authorized to release the information and spoke on condition of anonymity.

His wife, Isatu Salia, said in a brief telephone interview Friday afternoon that she had spoken with her husband by phone earlier in the day and that he sounded weak but lucid and understood what was going on.

She said she understood that arrangements were now in place to bring him to the U.S., and that she needed to get to where he will be treated.

Salia received his surgical training from a group called the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons, which seeks to train African doctors on a level comparable to training they would receive in the U.S., said Richard Toupin, of Auburn, Indiana, a fellow medical missionary.

"He is one of the best-trained surgeons in his country," Toupin said. "He is a very competent surgeon."

Bruce Steffes, executive director of PAACS, said Salia graduated from the surgical training program in 2008. The training includes a requirement to practice in Africa for four years after completion. As a result, Steffes said, Salia was free to practice anywhere he wanted, but elected to stay in Sierra Leone, where the need for surgeons is immense.

"People like Martin are just absolutely dedicated, highly trained ... and doing their best in absolutely horrifying conditions," Steffes said.

Jeff Bleijerveld, director of global ministries for the United Brethren in Christ church, said he last talked to Salia in February 2013, when they met to discuss planning for a hospital in the southern part of Sierra Leone. 

He recalled watching Salia perform a hernia surgery on a young boy, assisted by a handyman who was not actually a doctor. He recalled Salia leading the surgical team in prayer before the operation.

The United Brethren played an early role in Salia's medical training.

"He's a quiet leader," Bleijerveld said. "Our people still have a real affection for him."

The doctor will be the third Ebola patient at the Omaha hospital and the 10th person with Ebola to be treated in the U.S. The last, Dr. Craig Spencer, was released from a New York hospital on Tuesday.

The Nebraska Medical Center said Thursday it had no official confirmation that it would be treating another patient, but that an Ebola patient in Sierra Leone would be evaluated for possible transport to the hospital. 

The patient would arrive Saturday afternoon.

Salia came down with symptoms of Ebola on Nov. 6 but test results were negative for the deadly virus. He was tested again on Monday, and he tested positive. Salia is in stable condition at an Ebola treatment center in Freetown. It wasn't clear whether he had been involved in the care of Ebola patients.

Kissy is not an Ebola treatment unit but Salia worked at at least three other medical facilities, United Methodist News said, citing health ministry sources.

The U.S. State Department said it was helping facilitate the transfer of Salia; the U.S. Embassy in Freetown said he was paying for the expensive evacuation. The travel costs and care of other Ebola patients flown to the U.S. were covered by the groups they worked for in West Africa.

Sierra Leone is one of the three West Africa nations hit hard by an Ebola epidemic this year. Five other doctors in Sierra Leone have contracted Ebola - and all have died.

The disease has killed more than 5,000 people in West Africa, mostly in Sierra Leona, Guinea and Liberia.
The hospital in Omaha is one of four U.S. hospitals with specialized treatment units for people with highly dangerous infectious diseases. It was chosen for the latest patient because workers at units at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital and the National Institutes of Health near Washington are still in a 21-day monitoring period.

Those two hospitals treated two Dallas nurses who were infected while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who fell ill with Ebola shortly after arriving in the U.S. and later died.

The other eight Ebola patients in the U.S. recovered, including the nurses. Five were American aid workers who became infected in West Africa while helping care for patients there; one was a video journalist.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Applause filled City Council chambers Thursday morning, as a citizen and detectives received commendations and standing ovations, for their roles in helping save kidnap victim Carlesha Gaither and capture her alleged abductor.

Dwayne Fletcher was honored for spotting the crime and immediately notifying police, a decision that may well have saved the 22-year-old’s life, as she was dragged off a Germantown Street and thrown into a car, the start of a three-day ordeal.

Gaither was rescued when federal agents surrounded her car in Jessup ,Maryland, saving her, and arresting suspect Delvin Barnes.

I am another one of God’s shortcomings. I am a Black Angel (an angel has wings) and yet, I can not fly by Van Stone

I am another one of God’s shortcomings. I am a Black Angel (an angel has wings) and yet, I can not fly by Van Stone







 


I am another one of God’s shortcomings. I am a Black Angel –an angel has wings- and yet, I can not fly. I am One who is made to never forget about Love. I always care. But when I was made, I came up a being with some parts of me missing. What’s that that is missing you ask? I have no wings.  

I am an angel, and yet, I can not fly. I am prevented but nothing stops me. How can that be?  Why bother to try to prevent me if I can not be stopped?  I guess the reason why something like this happens, trying to stop me is because it seems like a good Idea at the time to try and stop me. 

I can’t be stopped from getting to you.  Stopped from being with you? Yes, things do happen.  Things do get in the way.  Good things prevent me though from getting to you just as much as bad things happen to get to get in my way of getting to you.   Yet, I have feet. And my feet, they both work just fine.

I’m told that my feet also are bad, but not so bad like I can not move about.  I do not complain about my feet, I just make them walk or run. I never crawl with my feet, I crawl with my legs and knees. I’m just reminding you that I am a man who can stand.

And if there is ever any way that I can run I will run to you to be with you.  But, I am an angel and yet, I can not fly. Another one of God’s shortcomings. I know, you will say, before the night’s end, that there are no shortcomings with God. You think not?

Just the telling that there are many who speak out, in the quick, to come to Dear Father God’s defense, as if there is a need for doing such a thing, demonstrates to another Angel that surely,   I am another one of God’s shortcomings. I am a White Angel-yes, I have wings- and yet, I can not fly.

The beautiful Black Angel She is… I am… we are… she is- here, and yet, I can not fly. I want to fly. Get off of me! Stop trying so hard to hold me down.  I will fly.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) — Tomorrow, New Jersey governor Chris Christie gathers stakeholders for a second meeting in three months on the future of Atlantic City.

Meanwhile, state senate president Steve Sweeney is floating his own five-point plan aimed at turning the city’s fortunes around.

Sweeney likened the current financial situation of Atlantic City to that which Detroit is only now coming out of.

Sweeney says it costs $370 million for schools and government in the shore town of 40,000, which, he says, is unsustainable given the current financial climate where property tax revenues are down by more than half.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — New, “supportive” housing exclusively for US military veterans was unveiled today in Southwest Philadelphia.

Such developments have helped drastically reduce the number of homeless vets.

Work is still underway at the Hardy Williams Veterans Center.  Construction is expected to be completed in January and veterans, aged 55 and older, should begin moving into the sixty one-bedroom apartments in February.

But US Rep. Bob Brady (D-Pa., second from right in photo below) says dedicating the project on Veterans’ Day sends a message:
