Health – BBC News

A woodcarver who has been donating his skills and time to show his appreciation for the work of health care staff during the coronavirus pandemic said he is “thrilled” with the response his project has received.

Johnathon Whittaker, who is a full-time self-employed wood carver and sculptor, has been making hand-carved plaques to thank health care workers.

Since starting the idea in April, Mr Whittaker and his wife Christie, who helps with administration, have been inundated with requests.

The couple from Plymstock in Devon have been making plaques for care homes and the South Western Ambulance Service, as well as their original idea for NHS workers.

“I am feeling a mixture of emotions, excitement, happiness, anxiety, nervousness…there is a lot going on inside my head right now,” said Mr Whittaker.

“I never expected it to boom like it has, but I am loving every minute of it.”

The other night, midway through watching a clip from “Plandemic” — a documentary that went viral on social media last week, spreading baseless lies and debunked nonsense about the coronavirus to millions of Americans overnight — I had a terrifying thought:What if we get a COVID-19 vaccine and half the country refuses to take it?It occurred to me that all the misinformation we’ve seen so far — the false rumors that 5G cellphone towers fuel the coronavirus, that drinking bleach or injecting UV rays can cure it, that Dr. Anthony Fauci is part of an anti-Trump conspiracy — may be just the warm-up act for a much bigger information war when an effective vaccine becomes available to the public. This war could pit public health officials and politicians against an anti-vaccination movement that floods social media with misinformation, conspiracy theories and propaganda aimed at convincing people

TIMES-TRIBUNE ARCHIVES Dr. Elsie Cole, retiring president of the Scranton District Dental Society, turns over the gavel to Dr. Frank B. Gardner, 1954 president, at the election and installation dinner on Dec. 14, 1953, at the Hotel Jermyn. From left: Gardner, Cole, Dr. Joseph Newman, Dr. John C. Specker and Dr. C.W. Taylor.


From the time she was 5 years old, helping her father count supplies and prepare gold for fillings, Elsie Cole was destined to become the first female dentist in Lackawanna County.


Born in Scranton in 1892, she was determined to follow in the footsteps of her father, P.F. Struppler, who had a dental practice in West Side. She attended the School of Lackawanna and then Temple School of Dentistry, where she met Jesse Cole, another dental student who would become her husband. They married in 1914, a year after they graduated.

    personal-training-workoutAfter having spent the Summer back in the States, I returned back to London last month and straight back to work. Unfortunately my time away over the Summer has been spent largely socialising and catching up with friends and family. My fitness has frankly gone out the window, except for a few early morning jogs. So to kick start me back into a healthy regime I decided to try a course of personal training sessions once again, as this worked so well for me before. I was looking for intense results and the motivation to get me back on track.

    My trainer Daniel turned up at my home and within a few minutes had analysed my lifestyle, eating habits and exercise shortcomings. With a knowing nod of his head, he assured me, “We’ll get you back into top shape, but you’ll have to make some changes”. Okay so I was
