Five months after the shooting, the law enforcement failures of that day have been well documented through the release of hours of video footage, a report by a Texas House investigative committee and testimony from the head of the Department of Public Safety. But inside a Texas Rangers investigation into the shooting and law enforcement inaction, authorities have turned to the potential cost of that delay and the question of whether a faster response could have saved lives.

Dr. Mark Escott, chief medical officer for the city of Austin, told the Austin-American Statesman, part of the USA TODAY Network, that he has begun a review sought by the Rangers to try to determine whether any victims had “potentially survivable wounds” — the results of which will be used by Uvalde County District Attorney Christina Mitchell Busbee to help weigh charging any responding officers.

Among the four, two students died at Uvalde Memorial Hospital; Dr. Roy Guerrero, a Uvalde pediatrician who arrived at the hospital after the shooting, said in a recent interview with the Statesman that those children had catastrophic injuries and that he does not think they could have survived, even with emergency care.

It is not hard to fathom that Bloomberg is so well connected to Wall Street with ties going back to the late 1970’s. With people like Bill McNabb of Vanguard or Lloyd Bankfein of Goldman Sachs and others have so much to loose if Bernie…

Focus Your Attention Elsewhere

“Focus your attention elsewhere” is one of the first lessons a 50 year old woman learns as she goes on a walkabout with an Aboriginal tribe in Australia. The story is told in the book, Mutant Message Down Under, A Woman’s Journey into Dreamtime Australia. This was my lesson, as well, and I share what I learned with my friends and clients.

Capturing the Boomer Dollar

There is a reason that the new concept in marketing is turning “silver” into “gold.” A distinct marketing strategy will need to be developed and employed to train younger staff to tap into this market.

Those Were The Days

In a world far removed from the harsh realities of now people joined together in fellowship and harmony. A world filled with youthful exuberance where any thought of despair was quickly dispelled. The laughter and gaiety that we shared in those seasons in the sun made our lives from which memories are made.
