La cifra de muertos por la erupción del Volcán de Fuego el pasado domingo en Guatemala se elevó hoy a 99, de los cuales 28 ya han sido identificados, informó hoy el Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Forenses (Inacif).

Este miércoles fueron ingresados 24 cuerpos a las distintas morgues administradas por el Inacif en los departamentos centrales de Sacatepéquez y Guatemala, así como al sureño Escuintla.

Este miércoles también se registró el descenso de material volcánico, flujo piroclástico y lahares en el ala suroriental del coloso, de 3.763 metros de altura sobre el nivel del mar, ubicado en el departamento de Escuintla, pasando por encima de varias comunidades en ese lugar.

 

 

Urban Family Practice has opened a new office on Buffalo’s East Side, in the Jefferson-Utica Plaza. The purchase has kept primary care in a neighborhood where choices for family medicine care are few. An open house on June 2, 2018 w offered residents a chance to tour the facility and more.

Urban Family Practice opened its second location Monday at 1315 Jefferson Ave. in the former location of the University at Buffalo Family Medicine Clinic, filling a gap in basic medical services left by the recent closure of several offices.

Last June, 7,000 patients, mainly East Side residents, received a letter stating that UB Family Medicine was closing its primary care clinic on Jefferson Avenue because of difficulties recruiting physicians to the practice to supervise the training of residents there.

Dr. Raul Vazquez, chief executive officer of Urban Family Practice on Niagara Street, purchased the clinic site. The new Jefferson Avenue Urban Family Practice will be operated by Dr. Chet Fox, a former professor at UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences who used to work at the clinic.

“I was there, so I get to be the clinical leader at my old site – so my new site, is my old site,” Fox said in a statement.

The opening of Jefferson Family Practice also coincides with the recent closure of Lifetime Health’s William E. Mosher Health Clinic on Main Street downtown. Fox said the closing of the Mosher Clinic left an additional 5,000 to 7,000 patients looking for a primary care doctor, and Urban Family Practice will attempt to absorb as many of those patients as it can.

“I’m excited that we can do this for the community, I’m excited that we can restore primary care, and that we can do it in a way that we’re building the care model of the future,” said Fox.

Cynthia Nixon met with grassroots and community leaders Wednesday for an economic development roundtable at The 9th Ward on Delaware Avenue and March in Buffalo Pride Sunday.

Her campaign stop was originally scheduled at the Agustin Olivencia Community Center, however, staff members told her that the center does not host political events, causing campaign organizers to quickly scramble for a different location.

Nixon, an activist and actress, launched her campaign for governor in March. She has often criticized Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s economic development policies. On Wednesday, she said Cuomo’s policies only benefit those who contribute to him and have not reach the minority communities. She also said there is very little oversight and job creation.

Things she has heard in Buffalo are similar to what Nixon have heard from visits in Syracuse and Rochester. She said the top down economic development approach just doesn’t work.

“It just doesn’t work for the members of the community that need it most, particularly communities of color,” Nixon said. “They know that all this economic development money is being spent here but they’re just not feeling it. We need to stop giving tax breaks to corporations and millionaires and billionaires.”

During her first trip to Buffalo as a candidate for governor, Nixon also visited famous local joints. She, along with Jim Anderson of Peace Action New York State, stopped by the Anchor Bar. She also showed off a box of Paula’s Donuts on Twitter.

In New York City the Mayor and African American leaders have thrown their support for Nixon
