A Native village on Alaska's western coast is reeling from back-to-back suicides of three young adults — with each subsequent death influenced by the preceding one.
A regional tribal health organization is sending an Alaska Native suicide-response-and-prevention team to Hooper Bay next week in what essentially will be a community debriefing.
Other response teams representing a variety of tribal groups are planning to travel to Hooper Bay as well, said Christopher Byrnes, emergency services director at the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp., which is sending the Alaska Native team as well as other mental-health experts.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has a $29 billion modernization plan that would add high-tech control systems, replace old subway cars and buses and expand service on North America's largest transit system.
De Blasio notes that nearly 75 percent of MTA revenue comes from city residents in the form of fares, tolls and taxes.
Cuomo laughed off de Blasio's concerns about the state's funding promises as "a joke" and has suggested the mayor call former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whom Cuomo praised for making significant investments in the MTA.
If the plan doesn't get funded, riders will have to put up with continued delays, aging subway cars and buses and outdated control systems while the MTA continues to fall behind more modern transit systems in global cities such as London, Paris and Hong Kong.
The MTA's plan calls for new control systems on Metro North and Long Island Rail Road designed to prevent collisions; more real-time countdown clocks at subway stations; new buses, subway and train cars; 86 miles of replacement subway track, continued work on the 2nd Avenue Subway plan, secondary rail lines on Long Island; and $3 billion for bridges and tunnels.
Labor unions that stand to pick up construction work under the project have called on the city to increase its investment.
