Gov. Baker Pushes Flu Shots; Courts Plan for Jury Trials | Massachusetts News

By STEVE LeBLANC, Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Getting a flu shot this year is one of the best ways to help the state guard against a spike in demand for health care services caused by any potential new surge in coronavirus cases, Gov. Charlie Baker said Thursday.

Public health officials have warned that an increase in both diseases could put pressure on the state’s hospitals and health care system, the Republican said at a news conference at a CVS Pharmacy in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston.

Baker Hughes is well positioned to gain since it

These are no ordinary cakes, though.

“I’ve been very, very lucky,” said Nicole England.  

She may consider herself lucky to be thriving in a year like 2020, but talent is what got her here.

She is an artist and her paint is icing. Her palette will likely please yours.

With thousands following her out-of-this-world work on social media, it may be hard to believe her career started when she got a promotion at a local grocery store at the age of 16. 

“I didn’t have any dreams of being a cake decorator when I was younger. I just wanted to get more hours in the bakery to fix up my truck,” England said. 

England started her own business in 2013,
