Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – August 11th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – I’m not sure who decided to call the Senate’s August work period “recess,” but it could use a rebrand. I’m using this month to reconnect with Tennesseans from all corners of our great Volunteer State.

This past week, I visited Middle Tennessee, and received updates from local businessmen, health care professionals, and local officials who are tuned in to the region’s many successes, and emerging opportunities for growth.

Tennessee’s strong workforce, right-to-work law, and central location make companies eager to set up shop.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Shared Humanity on the Streets

 

Open Table NashvilleNashville, TN – I got the call that I was needed and I should come to the clinic immediately. The clinic sat on an especially impoverished stretch of Murfreesboro Road that would never be featured on any list of tourist attractions. The tiny space was constantly filled with people, most of whom had no insurance, no way to pay, and many who were currently experiencing homelessness in the area.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope takes new image of Jupiter

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD –  On June 27th, 2019, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captured a new image of Jupiter that reveals the giant planet’s trademark Great Red Spot, and a more intense color palette in the clouds swirling in Jupiter’s turbulent atmosphere than seen in previous years. The colors, and their changes, provide important clues to ongoing processes in Jupiter’s atmosphere.

The bands are created by differences in the thickness and height of the ammonia ice clouds. The colorful bands, which flow in opposite directions at various latitudes, result from different atmospheric pressures. Lighter bands rise higher and have thicker clouds than the darker bands.
