HMM 08 – 14 – 23

Today, on the Hudson Mohawk Magazine:

We begin with a look at the anti-Proud Boys rally in Saratoga on August 5th with Mark Dunlea talking with Linda LeTendre.

Then, we discuss the medical challenges of hypertension, or high blood pressure, with Vernessa Mitchell from the nonprofit Chasing Health, and her organization’s services available through partnerships with community programs including our People’s Health Sanctuary.

Later on, Moses Nagel brings us to the August 7th Roundtable session sponsored by the group All of Us where Jamaica Miles and others discussed the meaning of Black August.

After that, Elizabeth “EP” Press covers the push by Harbour Point residents to have the New York State Attorney General’s office legally apply pressure on the owner of the apartment complex where some residents have been displaced since June 22nd.

Finally, we end with our weekly discussion with retired meteorologist Hugh Johnson for a look at climate and weather. This time we explore the horrendous Hawaiian wildfires, the role of winds from a tropical storm in spreading those fires, and the recent prediction of above-normal hurricanes in the Atlantic.
