Weekly Address: What You Need To Know About Ebola

 

In this week’s address, the President discussed what the United States is doing to respond to Ebola, both here at home and abroad, and the key facts Americans need to know. There is no country better prepared to confront the challenge Ebola poses than the U.S. and although even one case here at home is too many, the country is not facing an outbreak of the disease. Our medical professionals tell us Ebola is difficult to catch, and is only transmitted through direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who is showing symptoms.

 

The President made clear that he and his entire Administration will continue to do everything possible to prevent further transmission of the disease domestically, and to contain and end the Ebola epidemic at its source in West Africa.

 

 

 

Q&A on America’s Response to Ebola

 

 

This week at the White House, the President updated the nation on our government-wide response to Ebola, we discussed efforts against ISIL with our international efforts, and the First Lady asked, “Turnip for What?”

We Continued to Respond to Ebola

 

On Wednesday, the President met with Cabinet officials and Dr. Tom Frieden — of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — in the Cabinet Room of the White House.
After the meeting, President Obama laid out our comprehensive plan to contain Ebola, prevent its spread in the United States, and combat it at its source in West Africa.
Have questions about how exactly the disease spread? We’ve got the facts:
  • Ebola cannot be spread through the air, water, or food in the U.S. You cannot contract Ebola through casual contact with someone who has no symptoms.
  • Ebola can only be contracted through bodily fluids, contaminated objects, or infected animals.
  • Ebola only spreads when people are showing symptoms.
Now that you’ve got the key facts, pass it on to someone else who needs to know.

 

 

Today, the President appointed Ron Klain to coordinate the government’s comprehensive response to Ebola. Mr. Klain has served as Chief of Staff to two Vice Presidents, and his talent and managerial skills extend far beyond the White House. He has a great working relationship with leading Members of Congress and brings extensive intergovernmental operations experience to the job.

 

 

 

We Joined International Military Leaders to Discuss Efforts Against ISIL

 

On Tuesday, President Obama headed to Joint Base Andrews to meet with military leaders from over 20 partner nations and discuss coalition efforts to ultimately degrade and destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL.
At the meeting, hosted by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Dempsey, the President reiterated that:
  • The U.S. will take action against targets in both Iraq and Syria, so ISIL cannot find safe haven anywhere.
  • The U.S. will act as part of a broad international coalition, because this is not our fight alone.

FLOTUS asked: “Turnip for What?”

 

On Tuesday, the First Lady hosted her very first Vine and Twitter Q & A to answer questions about Let’s Move! before welcoming students to the White House for the annual fall harvest. During the Q & A, the First Lady answered a range of questions – including healthy Halloween ideas, her favorite fall vegetables, the status of the White House bees, and asked, turnip for what?

President Obama Meets with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi

 

This morning, President Obama met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, marking the first bilateral summit between the two heads of state.

 

“It is an extraordinary pleasure to welcome Prime Minister Modi to the White House for the first time,” President Obama said in remarks after their meeting. The President recognized the Prime Minister’s historic victory in the Indian general election earlier this year, and the two leaders discussed the broad partnership that exists between the United States and India:

 

I think that the entire world has watched the historic election and mandate that the people of India delivered in the recent election.  And I think everyone has been impressed with the energy and the determination with which the Prime Minister has looked to address not only India’s significant challenges, but more importantly, India’s enormous opportunities for success in the 21st century.

We have had an outstanding discussion around a range of issues.  And we, during our discussions, reaffirmed that as two of the world’s largest democracies, vibrant people-to-people contacts between India and the United States, including an incredible Indian American population that contributes so much, that we have so much in common it is critical for us to continue to deepen and broaden the existing framework of partnership and friendship that already exists.


“I think that the entire world has watched the historic election and mandate that the people of India delivered in the recent election.”

– President Barack Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama Hosts the National Design Awards Luncheon

 

 

 

Remarks by the First Lady at Annual Cooper Hewitt Luncheon

East Room

1:08 P.M. EDT

 

MRS. OBAMA:  Well, good afternoon everyone, and welcome to the White House.  Yay!  (Applause.)  See, I always have to loosen you guys up.  You’re in the White House, you’re a little stiff.  (Laughter.)  But let me just take a moment to notice these nice chairs — pretty nice.  This is a new addition to the luncheon, those of you who have been here.  (Laughter.)  This is — round of applause.  (Applause.)

 

ef5cb0f175323126610f6a7067001b06

 

Well, it is truly a pleasure to be here with all of you today as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the National Design Awards.  And I have been fortunate enough to be here for — this is my 6th year that we’ve had the pleasure of hosting this event here in the East Room.  And every year, I truly look forward to learning more about the honorees.  I mean, I get to read everything, but then, every now and then, I get to sit down and talk to you guys and actually learn a little bit about how you do what you do.

 

And what I discover is that these men and women are some of the most daring and creative minds in the world.  From a designer at Google who’s using data and crowd-sourcing to create art that will take your breath away, to the former Hollywood set designers who are now creating some of the most unique buildings and interiors that you’ll ever see — and they like each other, I think.  (Laughter.)  And then there’s this fashion designer whose parents tried to convince him to be a lawyer, or a doctor, or a dentist, or something like that.  And I’m sure that I speak for all women — (laughter) — when I say that I’m grateful that Narciso chose another path.  (Laughter and applause.)  Well done.

 

And it’s that idea of a path — a life’s journey — that I’d like to spend just a moment reflecting on.  Because every year at this event, I love asking our honorees how they ended up in these cool careers in the first place.  And more often than not, they tell me some crazy, quirky, interesting story about a string of coincidences that led them here today -– a chance meeting that turned into a partnership or business; a passion that no one ever dreamed they could actually make a living from; a mentor, a teacher, a family member who sort of led them into the career.

 

And as we reflect on the obstacles, and all the zig-zags and false starts that the folks we honor in this room have faced, I also want us to ask ourselves a few questions:  What can we do to help smooth the path for those who come after?  How do we make sure that our young people know about these careers?  I think about that all the time.  Who knows that you can do the stuff you do?  They don’t teach it in school, and we don’t want to leave it to luck or coincidence or chance to allow the next generation to make their dreams come true.

 

And more importantly, what are we doing to prepare the next generation for the opportunities that we do create for them?  How are we reaching our young people where they are in a way that really moves them and inspires them to commit to their education and fulfill their boundless promise?  Because in this age, as you know — and I’ve got teenagers — (laughter) — when our kids are always buried in some screen or device, what I’ve learned is that we can’t just lecture them anymore.  They tune us out.  (Laughter.)  It happens every night at dinner, it’s so sad.  We’ve got to really engage them and find ways for them to interact with us in new ways and with the world around them.

 

And that’s why I am so excited about the new Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, which will reopen in December, because you all are embracing the technology of the next generation in some really exciting ways.  I haven’t got a chance to see it; I’m going to come visit when it’s open, but I understand that you’re giving everyone who enters this new museum an interactive pen they can use to download information from ultra-high-definition exhibition tables — which means that essentially a visitor can record their visit, and then share and view it online long after they leave the museum, which is really kind of cool.  You’re also creating something called an “immersion room,” where a visitor can choose from hundreds of different wallpapers and patterns, or they can create something of their own and then instantly project them onto the walls around them.

 

And then of course there’s all the wonderful work that you’re doing outside of the museum that I am so proud of.  You’re sponsoring Teen Design Fairs and allowing kids to meet with experts, where they get feedback and they learn from some of the best in the world.  And you’re supporting budding designers with your DesignPrep Scholars program that’s in D.C. and New York.  And as usual, I got a chance to meet that group before I came into the room, and I want us to just take a moment — I want all those young scholars to please stand so that we can acknowledge you.  (Applause.)  Yay for you guys.  You can sit down now.  (Laughter.)

 

We’re very proud of you guys, and I’ve heard some really exciting things about the workshops earlier today and hopefully you all learned something too.  But here’s what I want you to think about — your mind, your creativity got you into the White House.  Remember that.  (Laughter.)  So you can do anything, all right?  This is pretty cool, right?  We’re very proud of you, and we’re proud of everything that Cooper Hewitt is doing.  Because the truth is, you all get it.  You really do.  You know that it’s not enough to simply celebrate the best design in America today, you know that we’ve got to really cultivate the best designers of tomorrow as well.

 

And it is an honor that during this special anniversary that we’re here at the White House that I’m able to thank you all once again for everything you do to make this world a better, more fun and interesting place, and what you’re doing to pass on that passion and imagination and commitment to our next generation.  It is truly a treat and an honor for me.  So thank you all, and congratulations.  (Applause.)

 

And now, it is my pleasure to introduce someone else who knows a thing or two about reaching out to our young people.  Under his leadership, the Smithsonian has used technology and educational programming to open up the museums, exhibitions and artifacts to more people than ever before — and my daughters are among those young people.  And while we are sad to see his time as Secretary of the Smithsonian end in just a few months, we’re pleased to have him here for this event one last time.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my dear friend, Dr. Wayne Clough.  (Applause.)

Updated from Monday…WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will deliver a speech on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University on Thursday, which will come after Obama headlines a fundraiser in Chicago for Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn.

 

The last president to speak at Northwestern, according to the university, was President Dwight Eisenhower in 1954. Obama will deliver his speech at 1:15 p.m. at Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson St., on the Evanston campus.

 

“I am extremely pleased to announce that President Barack Obama will come to Northwestern’s campus in Evanston to make a major address about the economy and his plans to keep expanding opportunity for Americans,” said Northwestern President Morton Schapiro in a statement.

 

Obama arrives in Chicago on Wednesday evening. After spending the night — it’s not known whether he will go to his Kenwood home — Obama heads downtown for the fundraiser at the Gold Coast home of Meredith A. Bluhm-Wolf, the daughter of Chicago business honcho Neil Bluhm, a major Northwestern benefactor — in 2013 Bluhm, a law school alum, donated $25 million to Northwestern.

 

After the fundraiser, Obama heads to Evanston for the speech on the economy at NU’s Kellogg School of Management. White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer said in an email sent Wednesday that in the Northwestern speech, “the President will make the case for what has always fueled America’s leadership — and that’s America’s economic greatness. He’ll take a step back from the rush of current events to explain what we’ve done to recover from the Great Recession and what we need to do to ensure that more middle-class Americans feel that progress in their own lives.”

 

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at the Tuesday briefing that Kellogg was selected because  “this is one of the top business schools in the country and is an appropriate venue for a serious speech about America’s economy.”

 

On Monday, a Sun-Times videographer spotted military aircraft doing a practice run for the presidential visit at a parking lot near Soldier Field while other spotters in Evanston saw U.S. military aircraft landing on the NU campus lakefront landfill area.

Obama to use Gary airport, not O’Hare or Midway after FAA fire

 

President Barack Obama will fly in and out of the airport at Gary, Ind., on Wednesday and Thursday, in the wake of flight delays still plaguing O’Hare and Midway airports following an arson fire on Friday damaging the FAA radar facility in Aurora.

 

Most of the cancelled and delayed flights on Tuesday were at O’Hare. Obama is flying to Chicago on Wednesday evening and departing Thursday afternoon after delivering a speech on the economy at Northwestern University in Evanston and headling a fundraiser for Gov. Pat Quinn on the Gold Coast in Chicago.

 

Obviously, O’Hare is much closer to the NU campus, but the White House did not want Air Force One and the president to get in the way of air traffic.
