Marine Band's rehearsal for the swearing-in ceremony held today: Marine Barracks Annex, 7th and K Streets, SE, Washington, D.C.

The President’s Own” United States Marine Band will participate in the Inauguration of the President of the United States on Jan. 20, 2021. While seated directly beneath the platform, the Marine Band provides music for the inaugural ceremony at the U.S. Capitol to include “Hail to the Chief” after newly sworn-in President Joe Biden has taken the oath of office. Thomas Jefferson was the first President to be inaugurated in Washington, D.C. An accomplished musician himself, he is credited with giving the Marine Band its nickname “The President’s Own.”

The Marine Band can serve as a source for the following topics:

  • Marine Band Director Colonel Jason K. Fettig is the music adviser to the White House. He provides musical insight for events such as Inaugurations, State Dinners and Arrivals, and other White House functions. This is the sixth inaugural he has participated in, and his second as the Director.
  • Marine Band members hail from more than 30 states and Washington, D.C., and can speak about their individual experiences both for the 2021 and previous inaugurations. Some members have participated as far back as the Clinton administration.
  • Marine Band Historian Master Sgt. Kira Wharton can provide anecdotes about “The President’s Own”…

One in two surveyed (52%) expect actions will be taken to address racial disparities in healthcare in the wake of COVID-19

A new Quest Diagnostics Health Trends™ study finds that Black and Hispanic/Latinx Americans are nearly two times as likely as White Americans to say their access to COVID-19 vaccines, treatments, and healthcare, once available, is worse than other racial/ethnic groups.

The study, titled COVID-19: Magnifying Racial Disparities in U.S. Healthcare, is based on a nationally representative survey conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX).

“COVID-19 has exacerbated long-standing inequities in healthcare, particularly among communities of color. Our new Health Trends research reveals people perceive, trust and engage with the healthcare system for COVID-19 differently depending on race and ethnicity,” said Harvey W. Kaufman, M.D., Senior Medical Director, Head of the Health Trends Research Program for Quest Diagnostics. “Importantly, it also reveals they expect America’s COVID-19 experience will lead to meaningful change in healthcare. Policymakers and providers should take these insights to heart, particularly as our country embarks on an unprecedented vaccination campaign.”

COVID-19: Magnifying Racial Disparities in U.S. Healthcare reveals racial divides in perceptions of access to healthcare and trust during the pandemic.

Select findings below:

Black and Hispanic/Latinx Americans lack confidence in access to COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics

  • Black and Hispanic/Latinx Americans are nearly two times as likely to say their access to COVID-19 vaccines, once available, is worse than other racial/ethnic groups, compared to White Americans (Black, 21%; Hispanic/Latinx, 17%; White 9%).
  • In addition, a larger proportion of Black and Hispanic/Latinx Americans felt access to COVID testing (15%, Black; 17%, Hispanic/Latinx vs. 8% White), COVID therapeutics (22%; 19% vs. 10%), quality preventative care during COVID (23%; 17% vs. 9%) and quality COVID-19 care (20%; 15% vs….

The APAA letter highlights the importance that primary aluminum plays in U.S. defense, critical infrastructure, and other areas
By / Finance Reporter

The American Primary Aluminum Association (APAA) in a letter congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on his upcoming inauguration, called for unity in our country, and urged the incoming Biden Administration to maintain protections for America’s primary aluminum industry. APAA member companies stand ready to work with the Biden Administration to strengthen the U.S. economy, rebuild domestic supply chains, and create new aluminum jobs across our great nation.

“As the Biden Administration takes office, it inherits a program under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 that has saved thousands of American aluminum jobs,” said Mark Duffy, CEO of APAA. “As a result of the Section 232 program total U.S. primary aluminum production has increased by nearly 60 percent, and two idled smelters have restarted. If the Section 232 measures are removed before balance is restored in the global market, it is likely that the remaining U.S. smelters will be forced to shut down, leaving U.S. supply chains for this critical material vulnerable to disruption.”

The APAA letter highlights the importance that primary aluminum plays in U.S. defense, critical infrastructure, and other areas. APAA member company, Century Aluminum, has the sole remaining North American smelter of high-purity aluminum, which is essential to a variety of military applications, including light-weight armor plating to protect U.S. troops in combat. We must ensure that U.S. manufacturers like America’s primary aluminum industry can Build Back Better and look forward to being a partner with the Biden Administration in that effort.

International asset protection attorney, Kevin L. Day, JD, MBA, speaks with Solomon RC Ali's MBA: Minority Business Access podcast

The country’s leading international asset protection, privacy protection, and estate planning attorney, Kevin L Day, JD, MBA, caught up with MBA: Minority Business Access podcast, granting an exclusive interview filmed from the Magnify Your Wealth summit in Denver, Colorado. Day shares little-known legal strategies and techniques his firm uses to ensure that his clients, which include high-profile CEOs, entertainers and professional athletes, are able to protect their assets, lower their lawsuit profile and protect their privacy, thereby making their assets “lawsuit proof.”

Day and his firm have become the preeminent experts and notable speakers throughout the United States, instructing other attorneys and high-net-worth individuals on their legal rights when it comes to enforcing trusts that have been established outside of the United States.

“We have lots of actors and ballplayers who want privacy, which is usually the drive, and lawsuit protection is good for them too,” Day tells MBA host Solomon RC Ali. “Clients will come to us and say, ‘I need lawsuit protection.’ Then lowering their profile and other things that are concerns of their family come into play.”

Continues Day, “Lawsuit protection boils down to, if you own it, it can be taken, even if it is a deferred right. Until 1987, if you wanted to lawsuit proof something and you put it into a trust, you could not be the trustee or the beneficiary, so you had to give…
