The Seattle Sounders showed some resiliency and toughness in their 3-1 win over the New York Red Bulls. After unveiling their 2016 MLS Championship banner in front of 45,600 appreciative fans, the Sounders let their one goal slip away then answered with back to back goals Jordan Morris and Harry Shipp to secure their first win of the season.
SOUNDERS RESILIENT ON DEFENSE
The New York Red Bulls (2-1) strolled intro Century Link Field with the best record in the Eastern Conference Sunday Night and a roster that had last year’s top goal scorer in Bradley Wright-Philips and top assist man in Sacha Kljestan. The Sounders were without suspended Center Back Roman Torres. Gustav Svenson moved from right back to Center back and Oniel Fisher started at right back for Svenson.
Despite the makeshift backline, the Sounders played their best defensive game of the young season. After giving up two goals in each of the previous two games, the Sounders played solid team defense from the frontline to the backline. Goal scorers Jordan Morris, Clint Dempsey and Harry Shipp put in work on the defensive end. The Sounders ability to play team defense passed its sternest test of the day when Fisher left the game due to an injury and was replaced by Roldan who was playing midfield at the time. Alvaro Fernandez entered the game and stepped in for Roldan in the midfield
SOUNDERS BEAT THE PRESS
The Sounders solid defensive play neutralized the Red Bulls offense despite the visitors winning the possession battle ( 52% to 47%). The Sounders were able to create more offensive shots due to the team’s ability to dribble past the Red Bulls high press. Seattle’s ability to break the Red Bulls pressure was the key in the Sounders winning the game according to Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch.
“With the ball, we weren’t sharp enough and able to make enough plays to create advantages. Then with our pressing, a number of times guys were able to dribble out of two or three players and start to create advantages because we let them out of tight spots meant that we had to deal with numbers up, numbers down situations, and counters in attacking plays. If we could win more of those balls, then we could actually set ourselves up to have more advantages the other way. We have to be better at our pressing and forward defending and then have to be better in possession.”
The Sounders’ win over the Red Bulls snaps New York’s 18-game MLS regular-season unbeaten streak dating back to last July 3.
Mayor Murray, along with Councilmember Debora Juarez and the Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL), announced the Seattle Preschool Program (SPP) will add 20 new classrooms for the 2017-2018 school year, bringing the total number of classrooms to 53. The program will expand to serve more than 1,000 three and four-year old students, compared to roughly 600 students in the program today. The new classrooms expand the geographic diversity of SPP by adding seven classrooms in North Seattle.
Over the last decade, research has shown that investments in high-quality early learning lead to better academic results and lives for children and families. Early learning helps prepare children to enter school with the skills they need to succeed – and is one of the best ways to eliminate race-based disproportionalities in achievement, opportunities, and outcomes.
The healthcare bill introduced by House Republicans on Monday will cause millions of people to lose their health insurance, experts say.
Among the hardest hit will be low-income families, who will be forced to go back to the Emergency Room for their medical care, says Marty Lynch, executive director of LifeLong Medical Care, a 40-year-old Federally Qualified Health Clinic with 14 locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
FQHCs like his — long the safety net for poor and undocumented families in underserved areas — are now bracing for the fallout from the planned repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Around 5 million Californians were able to get health insurance thanks to the ACA’s expansion of Medi-Cal (California’s name for the health insurance program for low-income people known as Medicaid in the rest of the nation) and the federal tax subsidies the ACA provides for those who buy insurance through the online marketplace. The state’s uninsured rate dropped to a record low of 7.1 percent last year. The majority of patients who today access FQHC services have insurance either through Medi-Cal or Covered California, the state’s online marketplace.
Many of those customers could lose their health insurance under the new bill, called the American Health Care Act, which would change Medicaid funding so that states would be forced to choose Medicaid funding as a block grant or as a per capita cap. Health care advocates believe neither funding mechanism will cover California’s ongoing needs.
They have spoken out strongly against the bill. Carmela Castellano-Garcia, president and chief executive office of CaliforniaHealth + Advocates, observed that the new bill would abandon “our most vulnerable communities by rolling back foundational safety-net programs like [Medi-Cal] expansion.”
After California Representatives Mimi Walters, R-Laguna Niguel, and Devin Nunes, R-Tulare, voted to repeal the ACA March 9, Health Access Executive Director Anthony Wright said in a press release:
“It is stunning that Californians like Rep. Nunes and Rep. Walters voted for this bill, given the direct and disproportionate impacts on California and our health system.”
NAM interviewed LifeLong Executive Director Lynch about how his clinic would be impacted by going from ‘Obamacare’ to ‘Trumpcare.’
Has the ACA been a game changer for LongLife?
Oh yes, totally. Medi-Cal expansion and subsidized private insurance under the ACA have substantially increased our insured patient population. In 2013, [prior to the ACA] we had 25,000 insured patients. At the end of 2016, we had 59,000 patients. About 60 percent of our previously uninsured patients got coverage.
How are you able to draw primary care doctors to treat your Medi-Cal patients when the reimbursement rate for the program is so low, in fact, one of the lowest in the country?
Health care payment methodology for FQHCs is ruled by federal law. It’s a lot better than what doctors in the Medi-Cal network get in other health care facilities.
But our workforce is a big issue. We are experiencing a shortage of primary care doctors, like everywhere else in the nation, because more doctors are opting to become specialists.
So with more Medi-Cal patients coming to your clinic since the ACA, has your bottom line improved, and by extension, has that allowed you to expand services?
FQHCs received a financial boost under President (George W.) Bush. The ACA expanded funding further.
It definitely takes some pressure off to have more patients. With the extra income, we were able to open additional clinics in Pinole, Rodeo and downtown Oakland. We now have an urgent care facility in San Pablo. We have been able to hire more dentists and mental health care providers.
LongLife has also benefited from the federal government’s pumping of more money into the so-called Section 330 grants. [The 330 grant money gives qualified clinics the option of offering services that aren’t billable to insurance plans.] But this grant has to be renewed annually and with all that’s happening in Washington, the $4 million we should get under Section 330 is now not certain. We had planned to use that money to expand our Pinole center. Some of that money would have also been used to build a clinic in the City of Richmond, one which will have among other things a family care center, pediatric care, dental clinic and urgent care services.
So have you put all your expansion plans on hold?
We could be paralyzed by Trump fear, but we don’t want to let that happen. I am very disappointed with all the talk about repealing and replacing. Our community will be in a much worse place when it comes to accessing health care. They will be going back to the day when they resort to the Emergency Rooms to get their health care.
How is LifeLong preparing for the financial cliff that is likely to happen?
As a community clinic, we’ll adapt with whatever resources we have. But that won’t happen without patients getting hurt.
