Rotary Club of Oklahoma City COVID-19 Preparedness Plan  

mcgirt v. oklahoma

Mike Hunter was elected as Oklahoma’s eighteenth attorney general on November 6, 2018. As attorney general, he has made the safety and security of all Oklahomans one of his top priorities. 

Determined to end the state’s opioid overdose and addiction epidemic, his office has taken a multidisciplinary approach to solving the problem.
Shortly after taking office, he formed the Oklahoma Commission on Opioid Abuse. The commission brought all stakeholders to the table and saw seven pieces of legislation become law in 2018. The laws give more tools to law enforcement personnel, prevents the diversion of opioid prescriptions from flooding the market and holds distributors, manufacturers and businesses accountable through proper oversight.

Inside Look at Wall and Broadway

 by John Frost
 Lately, many investors have been exposed to new terms and techniques which are used by Wall Street Firms and many investors do not know what or how these terms apply to “the market” for stocks. Let’s start with the term “order flow”. Most people cannot explain what the term “order flow” means with respect to the money earned (or, in some cases, unearned) by a number of firms, and you know who these “no commission”, “no fee”, “no charge” and discount trading firms are.
To understand, one has to go back to the workings of an auction market. In a typical auction, there are two parties vying to trade a particular stock, bond, option or derivative. There is an offer or ask price and a bid price which are different, one being higher than the other. This is the spread. For any security, this difference may be very narrow or it may be quite large. Usually, stocks are purchased at the “ask” price and sellers must be content with the “bid” price. Both the bid and ask move up or down, causing, the spread to narrow or widen depending on the audience participating in any transaction representing volume and frequency. This assumes that there is a security available for trading. Traditionally, the order flow was controlled by a specialist or specialist firm which maintains an orderly market. This is supervised by the various exchanges. The key to making money is the spread. If a specialist acts as a market maker, as these discount firms do, they “match” the buys and sells in house at the posted price but keep the spread. In other words, they “earn” the spread that they make. There have evolved computer programs which can instantaneously survey all the market makers and choose the one with the narrowest spread or the widest spread. Which market maker chosen for the order flow is determined by the discount broker. A good broker will seek the narrowest spread but the door is wide open for an abuse of the system. You may draw your own conclusions.

Malaria Partners International - Striving to elimnate Malaria Worldwide
With Polio "Nearly" eradicated, we now strive to tackle the next preventable worldwide killer.

Malaria is seen by many as the next worst, widespread disease that is impacting the world – after polio.  Malaria is a mosquito borne blood disease.  In simplest terms, it has the most severe impact on children 5-years old and younger, as millions of the youngest children have died.  For adults, it has the impact of a very bad case of the flu, thus resulting in mothers who cannot care for their children and fathers who cannot go to work to pay for food for their families.

To address this head on, Malaria Partners International (MPI) was created by Rotarians to fight Malaria on a worldwide scale. Founded by Seattle Rotary Club 4, MPI now involves more than 40 other Rotary Clubs and significant partners in the international health field. MPI’s efforts first focused on the African country of Zambia and are now spreading to other African countries including The Gambia, Tanzania, and Uganda.

MPI on the Ground

The MPI approach to attacking malaria is unique, using lessons learned from polio eradication programs to trace and target hotspots of malaria outbreaks. The Zambia project has focused directly on the training and equipping of over 1,250 village health care workers who can test for and treat malaria at the local level, impacting over 625,000 local residents.

Another major aspect of the Zambia project is the effective partnership with the national government in the work.  This government involvement provides the long-term sustainability that will make this effort endure through the years.
