TAMPA ‘ Women may still be a minority among veterans in the United States, but they’re the fastest-growing segment of the veteran population.

To better serve their needs, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has signed a five-year contract with the University of South Florida’s Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation to offer a women’s health mini residency program.

The joint effort, announced Wednesday, aims to train VA-employed physicians and nurses on how to better address women’s health care issues, said Dr. Christine Kolehmainen, director of education for Veteran Affairs Women’s Health Services.

The Argument Beneath The Argument: The Future of USF at a Crossroads #CreateACultureOfExcellence

Note: I understand this article is long winded. Just know that I gave everything I wrote here a lot of thought, and that I did everything in my power to ensure respect is paid to all parties in the USF community.

As the University of South Florida suffered back-to-back PR Headaches (the bungled release of the new academic logo and slogan “Ambition over Tradition“, as well as Coach Charlie Strong’s poor choice of words in the post-game press conference after the UCF game), it dawned on me that USF is having difficulty recognizing the argument beneath the argument, and this is contributing to the poor reaction by the university. Consider this: we’ve all been in an argument with a girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse where we are arguing a specific point, and then it suddenly dawns on you that you and your loved one are not having the same argument. The argument, for them, is not necessarily about cleaning a toaster, it’s about the time you accidentally forgot to clean her mother’s crystal, or that time you left the sugar out and there were ants. There is an argument beneath the argument, and when you figure that out, you can resolve the issue and move on with your lives. You go above and beyond to make sure items are cleaned, and this makes her happy in the long term. Plus, your house is cleaner, and that’s always good.

Sunburn ‘ The morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics ‘ 2.15.19

Look for Governor Ron DeSantis to unveil today a proposal to make good on his commitment to clear the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship waiting list. To accomplish this, the Governor will propose an education savings account-styled program for poverty-stricken families.

Florida Politics does not know what the backstory is here, but we have discovered (we say discovered because it’s been sitting out there for a week and no one has noticed it) that Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg asked to be recused from a case involving state Rep. Emily Slosberg, who is being accused of petit theft, trespassing, and criminal mischief. The Governor’s Office granted Aronberg’s request and has re-assigned the case. Here is the EO.

As USF spring game rolls around, Sawtelle still isn’t playing

TAMPA’ There was little doubt about it. With just over a minute left in the game, Tulsa was leading South Florida 24-22 and, deep in its own territory, looking for a first down that would clinch the win and end the Bulls’ super fast 5-0 start to open the 2018 season.

That was the last tackle Sawtelle would make. A neck-shoulder injury forced him to the sidelines, and he never came back after the Tulsa game.

As practice comes to an end here this week with the spring game set for 1 p.m. Saturday at Corbett Field, USF’s soccer stadium, Sawtelle still isn’t back, although he is better.
