But Hargrove says these beautiful marine creatures were suffering a fate akin to "solitary confinement". MORE ON FLORIDAWHAT MAGIC Inside the Florida...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – As the Omicron variants surges across the state and the number of COVID-19 cases is on the rise, Governor Ron DeSantis has called on the federal government to send thousands of additional doses of monoclonal antibody treatment. During a news conference Monday with Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo at Broward Health Medical Center, DeSantis said they were concerned when the federal government pulled back the supplies. READ MORE: FDA Expands Pfizer Boosters For More Children As Omicron Surges“The federal government had stopped sending both Regeneron and the Eli Lilly monoclonal. That was based off some preliminary study saying that it may not be as effective against Omicron. But of course, Omicron is not the only variant that’s out there. And it’s something that we actually have seen applied with Omicron patients, and we have seen symptoms resolved. So it’s not clear that this is not something that is going to not be a benefit, it may not be as good as it was against Delta, we obviously want to have that here for patients to be able...
              more   In an 11-page order released on Saturday, U.S District Judge M. Casey Rodgers rejected Florida’s motion to block a Biden administration rule that requires workers at hospitals and other health-care related facilities be vaccinated against COVID. The decision was in response to a motion filed by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody seeking a preliminary injunction against the federal rule which takes effect December 6. Moody’s argument contended that the requirement would increase health-care staffing shortages. However, Judge Rodgers concluded that Florida had shown “irreparable harm” to justify an injunction. Rodgers wrote in the order, “On review of the record, the court finds no adequate showing that irreparable injury will occur in the absence of a TRO (temporary restraining order) or preliminary injunction prior to December 6, 2021. The affidavits (of state officials) in support of the motion include assertions of how the various agencies and institutions anticipate they may be adversely impacted by the mandate. In particular, the affidavits express opinions of agency heads who ‘estimate’ that they ‘may’ lose a certain percentage or a number of employees,...

    Other right-leaning states - including Florida and South Carolina - may be the next to follow Texas' newly-implemented ‘heartbeat’ bill, as the new law drew criticism from U.S. celebrities.  Florida State Senator Wilton Simpson said in a Thursday statement that it could be 'worthwhile to take a look at the Texas law and see if there is more we can do here in Florida.'   Simpson was backed by Governor Ron DeSantis said, who said he'd mull a ban. Texas Right to Live legislative director John Seago told Forbes that South Carolina was also considering an abortion bill. The states - which like Texas both have Republican governors  - could follow the lead of the ‘Texas Heartbeat Act,’ which took effect earlier this week and bans abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected at about six weeks gestation. The Supreme Court upheld the ban Wednesday, and now states such as Florida and South Carolina are looking to follow the Lone Star State’s lead in restricting reproductive rights. Swaths of celebrities are lashing out against Texas’s abortion law, ‘I stand with the...

    There are potentially very dark clouds on the horizon for Democrats in the Sunshine State. Protests raged in the streets of Cuba. Many lawmakers from both parties spoke up to support the demonstrators under threat of violence from the Communist regime.And yet, what we learn about political unrest in Cuba could shed light on whether Democrats or Republicans control the House and Senate after the 2022 midterms, and the political stripe of Florida.Let’s start with members of the squad in the House of Representatives: Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.These progressive lawmakers are usually outspoken when it comes to U.S. foreign policy. Tlaib and Omar have made controversial remarks about Israel and American support for the Jewish state. But all were conspicuously quiet - for days - when it came to supporting the anti-communist protesters in Cuba."The silence of the squad is deafening," said Josh Kraushaar of National Journal. "They rarely miss an opportunity to speak out against violations of human rights in any part of the globe."And when one of the...
