North Decatur Square: Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar Now Open, Hand & Stone Massage Opening Soon

Two more businesses are in the mix at North Decatur Square, a shopping center anchored by the Whole Foods 365 store. Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar opened in November and is located at 1575 Church St, Decatur, Ga. The burger bar chain got its start in North Carolina. The company has more than two dozen locations located in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Georgia, Tennessee and Colorado. "Our philosophy to prepare simple foods-such as the quintessential American dish, the hamburger-with culinary passion satisfied a craving among restaurant-goers like nothing had before," the company says.

A spokesperson for Whole Foods has officially rebutted rumors that the Whole Foods 365 store will be converted to a Whole Food store. The company recently announced it was discontinuing the 365 concept, but reports said the current 12 stores would remain open. Representatives from the company initially declined to comment about what the discontinuation of the 365 concept would mean for the Decatur store. But a spokesperson for Whole Foods recently told Decaturish that the Decatur 365 store will remain in place for now.

A National Transportation Safety Board report into a fatal Dec. 20 plane crash in Atlanta may be delayed. Local employers seeking to check the immigration status of potential employees have been cut off from the government’s E-Verify system. Brewers in Georgia have been barred from releasing new beers while their federal regulator, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, remains shuttered. Some real estate agents have reported prospective home buyers reversing course due to economic uncertainty. Many local government contractors fear they won’t receive back pay for their work. But still, a spokesman for the Georgia Department of Labor said the state has not seen a jump in unemployment claims compared with this time last year.

What’s not affected: Congress has already approved funding for about 75 percent of the government, including for Georgia’s largest federal employers: the military, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Social Security checks are being paid and the U.S. Postal Service, which is largely self-funded, is still delivering mail. The Atlanta Federal Reserve is operational, too, since it’s considered an independent entity within the government. Several programs of major importance to parents, including Head Start and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the federal parent to PeachCare, are also fully funded. What’s still unclear: Several components of the social safety net. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, previously known as food stamps, feeds more than 1.5 million low-income Georgians and has enough money to cover benefits through February. But there are significant fears that an extended shutdown could lead to rationing or even the cessation of benefits. Read more about what a federal shutdown means for Georgia.

William "Beau" Wrigley, former president and CEO of Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co., seen here in a 2008 file photo, has been named chairman of the board of directors - at Surterra Wellness, a medical cannabis company with operations in Florida and Texas. William "Beau" Wrigley, former president and CEO of Wm. William "Beau" Wrigley Jr., billionaire heir of the Wrigley chewing gum company where he served as chairman, president and CEO, now leads a medical cannabis business soon to operate an Austin dispensary. Surterra Wellness, one of three companies licensed to cultivate and sell medical cannabis in Texas, named Wrigley its new chairman on Monday.

65 million into the Georgia-based company with existing dispensaries in Florida. Wrigley becomes the latest executive bringing high-level corporate experience to the growing legal cannabis market - . "I haven’t been this excited about a business in a very long time," Wrigley said in a statement. Since Mars Inc. acquired the Wrigley Co. in 2008, Beau Wrigley has served on the board of various technology, media, and health and wellness companies. Surterra CEO Jake Bergmann said Wrigley’s reputation and expertise in building trusted consumer brands should boost the image of both Surterra and the U.S. "It validates a lot of what we’ve been working on," Bergmann said. Wrigley’s involvement with Surterra did not surprise Heather Fazio with Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy.

In recent years, other leaders have publicly expressed interest in the growing legal market. Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner this spring joined the board of a New York-based cannabis company. News of appointments - such as Wrigley’s is likely to become the norm, Fazio said. "It’s only a matter of time," she said. For now, though, Texas’ legal cannabis remains limited. Under the Compassionate Use Program, only three companies, including Surterra, have licenses to operate dispensaries in the state. They can serve only patients with intractable epilepsy. But patient advocacy groups are pushing for legislation to expand the program’s reach by adding qualified diagnoses and expanding the number of providers. Fazio said business leaders like Wrigley, who say they are committed to patients who could benefit from legal cannabis, can be strong advocates for an expanded program here. Suterra plans to roll out the first batches of medicine in Texas in the coming weeks. Its goal is to open a wellness center where patients can pick up their prescriptions.

In the world's most expensive health care system, defensive medicine, inefficient insurance processes and preventable conditions related to obesity account for about one-third of U.S. That cost alone can make up the gap between the percentage of gross domestic product spent on health care in the U.S. Rawson, who also authored a paper for the journal on the roots of health care reform. The non-invasive but expensive imaging tools of radiology are a major player in the practice of defensive medicine. Patient demand for such studies also has increased utilization as has the proliferation of mobile and other non-hospital based imaging. A more positive aspect of the decade of growth is imaging's replacement of exploratory surgical techniques for diagnosing, as an example, internal injuries in the abdomen, Rawson said.

And, computerized tomography often can be used to quickly diagnose heart disease in an emergency room patient with chest pain rather than rushing off to a cardiac catheterization lab. Clinical decision support tools based on best practices that are integrated, as an example, into the electronic medical record system, can help ensure such optimal use of imaging. MCG Neuroradiologist Scott Forseen is corresponding author of an article in the journal that puts together these sorts of diagnosis and treatment guidelines for patients with low-back pain that are most likely to benefit from imaging. Overwhelming evidence suggests that high-tech images and back surgeries don't improve outcomes for many but the numbers of both are increasing. That does not mean cookie cutter medicine, Rawson said. Rawson is one of a dozen members of the American College of Radiology's Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute examining the role of radiology in new health care delivery and payment models.

Only one group in Georgia will receive all of the federal funding allocated for healthcare navigators this year. Navigators help people sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. 500,000 allocated to Georgia this year. 3 million the year before that. "It was a surprise that this small nonprofit got the whole statewide contract," Andy Miller, editor and CEO of Georgia Healthcare News. "It’ll be a challenge for them: they have focused on DeKalb County, Gwinnett County immigrant and refugee populations. So now they’ll be faced with signing up people all over the state. Insure Georgia and the Georgia Primary Care Association are the two other groups that received funding last year. "The federal agency overseeing this basically is saying that insurance brokers and agents are doing a very good job and are more cost-effective than navigators," Miller said. "And so they’ve cut the funding for these counselors to the point where now it’s down to about a third of what it was last year. And insurance brokers and agents are doing a good job in signing people up for the exchange, but they don’t reach a lot of populations that are chronically uninsured.

The Health and Human Services Department said Tuesday that, through the middle of January, more than 7.1 million people had signed up in 37 states where the federal government is running the insurance markets. At least another 2.4 million signed up in states running their own exchanges. The health insurance exchanges offer subsidized private coverage to people who don't have access on the job. The deadline for 2015 enrollment is Feb. 15, and officials are expecting the numbers to surge at the very end. But there is a cloud over this year's open enrollment season as well. That's because the Supreme Court has agreed to hear another sweeping challenge to the health care law.

This time, opponents argue that the legislation as written does not allow the federal government to subsidize premiums in states that haven't yet set up online insurance markets. Consumers in states running their own exchanges would continue to receive financial assistance. Supporters of the law argue that while its language may be difficult to parse, Congress clearly intended financial assistance to be available in every state. The case will be heard in March, and a decision is expected early in the summer. Of the top five enrollment states in Tuesday's report, only California is running its own market. Last year, Burwell had set a national target of 9.1 million people enrolled and paying their premiums. It's still too early to say if that goal has already been met, because the number only counts people who've sealed the deal by paying their first month's premiums.

The health care law also provides additional coverage for low-income people, by expanding eligibility for Medicaid in states that accept. On Tuesday, Indiana became the 28th state to agree to expand Medicaid, and the latest state with a Republican governor to do so. At least 9.7 million people have gained coverage through the law's Medicaid expansion, which targets low-income adults with no children living at home. Although Obama's Affordable Care Act still has its share of problems, it is succeeding in reducing the number of Americans without coverage. Congressional budget analysts estimate that about 19 million fewer people will be uninsured in 2015 than would have been the case without the law. The House planned to vote next week on annulling the entire law, said Matt Sparks, spokesman for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. A full repeal would face long odds of success in the Senate, where majority Republicans would need support from at least six Democrats to prevail. The president has said any such legislation will draw his veto. © 2015 The Associated Press.

Attorney General Chris Carr announced Monday that two citations have been filed in Fulton County State Court following an investigation into violations of the Georgia Open Records Act committed by former City of Atlanta employee, Jenna Garland. "Openness and transparency in government are vital to upholding the public trust. I am confident that this action sends a clear message that the Georgia Open Records Act will be enforced," said Attorney General Carr. The citations filed relate to two violations of the Open Records Act. The second citation states that the Department of Watershed Management received another open records request from WSB-TV on March 21, 2017 for certain billing records. ]old all" documents responsive to the request until the requestor asked for an update. The story alleged open records violations by then-mayoral press secretary Jenna Garland and potentially others.

The Office of the Attorney General requested that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation open an investigation into the matter on March 12, 2018, and these citations are the product of that investigation. Under Georgia’s Open Records Act, it is a misdemeanor to knowingly and willingly attempt to frustrate access to records that are not subject to exemption by intentionally making such records difficult to obtain or review. The act further states that any prosecution under this code section may only be commenced by issuance of a citation. The Attorney - General has authority to prosecute this matter and will be filing an accusation in Fulton County State Court for the conduct alleged in the citations.

The Atlanta City Council is pushing for new regulations on electric scooters that they hope will lead to more safety requirements for the popular — but some say dangerous — mode of urban transportation. In a resolution passed March 4, the council asked hospitals and healthcare outlets to voluntarily track scooter-related injuries and share the numbers with the city. Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore said she hopes the data will help the City Council write new safety requirements. While no data currently exists for Atlanta, Grady Memorial Hospital, the largest hospital in Georgia, estimated it receives between 80 and 100 scooter-related injuries per month, ranging from serious head injuries to broken limbs. Around the nation, it’s estimated there have been at least 1,500 injuries related to the scooters since 2017, according to a Consumer Reports magazine study published in February.

The magazine also found at least four scooter-related fatalities were confirmed nationally. The magazine compiled the data after contacting 110 hospitals in 47 cities where the two biggest scooter companies, Bird and Lime, operate. Aaron Nichols, a career coach visiting Atlanta from Washington, D.C., said he expected there would be risks riding scooters, but was taken aback by the number of injuries Grady treats each month. He and a couple of friends planned to ride Lime scooters to Piedmont Park. "They seem like they go pretty fast, so I would imagine it would be helpful to require helmets," Nichols said.

Also known as dockless electric scooters or e-scooters, the narrow, two-wheeled devices can be rented through smartphone apps that charge by the mile. They’re considered an alternative transportation mode for short trips in urban areas. At least four rental companies operate in Atlanta, including California-based Lime and Bird. Athens and Marietta - are the only reported cities in Georgia that have banned scooters. In February, Marietta voted to prohibit scooter rental companies from operating in the city, which city officials worried would ruin the city’s walkability and crowd sidewalks. Since early 2018, Atlanta has seen a surge in the number of scooters buzzing around the city, but they had operated with few regulations. Some cities require users to have a permit or be at least 18 to ride scooters.

In January, the Atlanta City Council enacted new rules prohibiting scooters from sidewalks and limiting their speed to 15 mph. A video showing a man riding a scooter on the Downtown Connector appeared on social media, illustrating the potential dangers. Two bills in the Georgia Legislature could bring statewide regulation to electric bikes and scooters if they pass by the end of the session. Neither bill would pre-empt local regulations. One bill would prohibit users from parking the devices on sidewalks and other places where they would obstruct pedestrians or vehicles. A second bill would allow electric bikes capable of traveling no more than 20 mph to travel on bike paths, but it would prohibit faster - ones from using those paths.

"Then I started receiving emails from people - a couple of them nurses - saying you all need to look at these scooter injuries," Moore told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. How the hospitals will submit the data has not been determined, but Moore said the information will be limited to the number and type of injuries received and will not include patient names or other personal information. "I just want us to be aware of the number of injuries," Moore said. "That awareness could lead to other changes." But Moore stopped short of saying if this could lead to helmet requirements.

A similar safety study is underway in Austin, Texas through a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study will focus on scooter-related injuries in Austin between September and November 2018, using public health data collected at hospitals - . Moore said she has spoken with CDC officials and is considering asking the federal agency to help Atlanta’s efforts. Grady Memorial Hospital’s chief of emergency medicine Dr. Hany Atallah told the AJC that the number of scooter injuries is difficult for hospitals to track. 250,000 in free helmets as part of their safety efforts. "We look forward to working with the City of Atlanta, the medical community and regulators to create a meaningful transportation ecosystem that is clean, efficient and safe," the company said.

A restaurant employee in Georgia has been arrested after shooting a customer for trying to skip out on the bill. A restaurant employee in Georgia was arrested after shooting a customer for walking out on the bill. The customer reportedly tried to pay for his meal at China Cafeteria in Decatur with an invalid credit card Wednesday night, WSB-TV reports. When the employee, Xin Xing Chen, realized what had happened, he and his co-worker went outside to confront the customer. A fight broke out between the three people and at one point Chen went back inside the restaurant, grabbed a gun and shot the customer. His co-worker was also shot by accident. The restaurant is known for its cheap food. One customer uninvolved in the incident told WSB-TV he was surprised something like this happened over such a small amount of money. 5 meal.

London, might 28 (reuters) - britain’s short-term lenders have change into a legislation unto themselves", bullying borrowers into extending loans, providing loans to children and drunk folks and harassing those closely in debt, a charity mentioned on tuesday.

The Emory Global Health Institute, along with local partners, has established the Refugee and Immigrant Health and Wellness Alliance of Atlanta (RIHWA), which seeks to improve the health and social services available to Atlanta’s refugee and immigrant communities. RIHWA is a partnership among Emory University, Georgia State University, the DeKalb County Board of Health, the CDC, Georgia’s refugee resettlement agencies, health care providers and clinics, and numerous community organizations. Its goal is to enhance existing partner programs to develop a comprehensive, integrated, and multidisciplinary approach to promote health and wellbeing in Atlanta’s refugee and immigrant communities. Fueled by his interest in supporting "local-global" efforts at Emory, EGHI Associate Director Parminder S. Suchdev, MD, MPH, was instrumental in establishing RIHWA. After spending more than a year listening to members of the Emory community and representatives from organizations that serve refugee and immigrant communities, the alliance began to take shape.
