First Lady Melania Trump: “Give Focus to Our Next Generation”

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Over the last couple of weeks, I have had time to reflect on many things personal to me. One of the most honorable and important roles I have ever undertaken has been serving you, the American people, as the First Lady of this country.

When I thought about where I wanted to put my time and efforts, there was no hesitation. BE BEST has one simple purpose—to help children. It serves to provide the tools children need to prepare them for their futures.

BACH says Nashville donor gives extra time for Military Families experiencing Stillbirth or Infant Loss

 

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital Public Affairs

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – For many, pregnancy is a special time culminating in the birth of a healthy baby for parents to hold, cuddle and bond for many years to come. Those first days of life are usually spent at the hospital with mom and baby rooming in together while they recover from the rigors of labor and delivery.

Sadly, for some mothers who experience miscarriage or stillbirth that is not the case. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports miscarriage occurs in about 10 to 20 percent of pregnancies and stillbirth occurs in about one in 100 births each year.

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital was gifted a Cuddle Cot, earlier this year by a Nashville, Tennessee family in memory of their daughter Frances Marie Wiegand. During her 32-week obstetrics appointment at a Nashville-area hospital, mom, Jane Wiegand learned that her baby had passed away in the womb. After delivering her stillborn daughter, the bassinet cooling unit preserved the baby’s condition giving the family extra time during their hospital stay to treasure, grieve and appreciate their daughter.(U.S. Army photo by Maria Yager)

NASA’s Insight lander has probe just under the Surface of Mars

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s InSight lander continues working to get its “mole” – a 16-inch-long (40-centimeter-long) pile driver and heat probe – deep below the surface of Mars. A camera on InSight’s arm recently took images of the now partially filled-in “mole hole,” showing only the device’s science tether protruding from the ground.

Sensors embedded in the tether are designed to measure heat flowing from the planet once the mole has dug at least 10 feet (3 meters) deep. The mission team has been working to help the mole burrow to at least that depth so that it can take Mars’ temperature.

NASA's InSight retracted its robotic arm on Oct. 3, 2020, revealing where the spike-like "mole" is trying to burrow into Mars. The copper-colored ribbon attached to the mole has sensors to measure the planet's heat flow. In the coming months, the arm will scrape and tamp down soil on top of the mole to help it dig.
