Education Ministry to Work Closer With Nurses on ‘Zero-To-Three’ Initiative

first_img “The Ministry believes nurses and midwives have a crucial role to play, especially in early stimulation and pre-education years from three months to three-plus years, and even further in the early-childhood levels from three to eight months to five years of age. This means we must look closer and work far more strategically with you, our health sector colleagues and partners,” he told the nurses. Addressing the opening of the 28th Nursing and Midwifery Research Conference at the University of the West Indies School of Nursing on Thursday (May 24), Senator Reid said nurses and midwives are professionals who are often involved in the first point of contact with babies after birth, and they can help with the development of infants. Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says the Ministry intends to partner more with nurses and midwives in the roll-out of the ‘Zero-to-Three’ initiative. Story Highlights Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says the Ministry intends to partner more with nurses and midwives in the roll-out of the ‘Zero-to-Three’ initiative.Addressing the opening of the 28th Nursing and Midwifery Research Conference at the University of the West Indies School of Nursing on Thursday (May 24), Senator Reid said nurses and midwives are professionals who are often involved in the first point of contact with babies after birth, and they can help with the development of infants.“Across the world, the nursing profession has had a long history of raising concerns and lobbying for changes on matters to do with ethics and healthcare practices. This lies at the heart of what attracted many to the profession in the first place,” Mr. Reid said.“The Ministry believes nurses and midwives have a crucial role to play, especially in early stimulation and pre-education years from three months to three-plus years, and even further in the early-childhood levels from three to eight months to five years of age. This means we must look closer and work far more strategically with you, our health sector colleagues and partners,” he told the nurses.Mr. Reid said in addition to this, the Ministry will be seeking to partner with the UWI School of Nursing, Mona, in other ways that will benefit the nation in the long run.“Jamaican nurses have also developed a most outstanding reputation of not only being well-trained but also generally professional in the delivery of patient care, whether they practise in Jamaica or are ambassadors for Jamaica serving elsewhere in the world,” Mr. Reid said.“This conference will, therefore, allow for the sharing of experiences, new challenges and new paradigms drawn from across the globe and how these may have an impact locally,” he said.Meanwhile, Senator Reid encouraged the UWI School of Nursing to transform its training and testing procedures for students with more use of technology, similar to how the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) is now working on online examination for Jamaican students to do some of their CXC tests from their homes.He said with more online services available for the training and testing of nurses, underserved people in the region who have access to the Internet will be better able to participate and pay for the services that can be taught through theory.“One of the challenges with the structure of the University of the West Indies is that smaller territories are generally being underserved, because you [the students] have to move from smaller territories to campuses of the University. Over time, the cost becomes very competitive, and we can use technology to reduce the cost of delivery of education and training,” the Minister said.The Nursing and Midwifery Research Conference is being held from May 24 to 25 under the theme ‘Promoting excellence in patient care through evidence-based nursing and midwifery practice’.The objectives of the conference are to inform nurses and midwives of new technology and best practices available in the sector, and to hear their concerns regarding the development of Jamaica’s health sector.last_img read more

Calgary mulls public hearings plebiscite question for 2026 Winter Games bid

first_imgCALGARY – Calgary is wrestling with how to get public input, and what question to ask in a plebiscite, as timelines tighten on bidding for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Games.A plebiscite, which was a condition of the provincial government contributing money to a bid, will likely be held in November.A council committee overseeing a bid was told by city administration Tuesday a plebiscite can’t happen sooner, or later, than that.The deadline for cities to submit 2026 bid books to the International Olympic Committee is January.The question that will be put to Calgarians is under construction. Mayor Naheed Nenshi would like financial parameters to be included in the question.“It has to be a very simple question,” the mayor said. “Are you in favour of Calgary bidding on the Olympics or not, but it also has to be informed by how much is that going to cost.“Do you support us spending this kind of money on it?”But who is paying for what is a key question still be to fully answered. And there’s a time crunch, as the Calgary bid must have a complete financial breakdown for Calgarians to digest before they go to the voting booths.Committee chair Coun. Evan Woolley said the plebiscite “will be the ultimate arbiter of whether we push the send button on this bid” and “Calgarians need enough time to be able to make that decision.”“It remains an incredibly short runway on timelines,” Woolley said.The Calgary Bid Exploration Committee estimated almost a year ago the 2026 Winter Games will cost $4.6 billion with games revenue covering almost half.How much money will come from the three levels of government and the corporate sector likely won’t be known until September, according to Nenshi.“We should have the cost in June or a little bit later than that,” the mayor said. “What we’re not going to have is what the various contributions are from private sector, from other governments, from the city.“We probably won’t have that until September and that, of course, is critical for the public engagement because people need to know what we’re actually talking about.”The committee, which includes the mayor and six city councillors, declined to recommend holding non-statutory public hearings of council for the games, but asked administration to come back in June with ideas on how Calgarians could still have public input.“If we’re doing a plebiscite, I just think a public hearing is window dressing,” Nenshi stated. “It’s a lot of time, it’s a lot of work, it’s a lot of money to organize that.“It’s very difficult people who are working to come down to (city hall) so you never get a full cross-section of people.”Another variable is work on a bid is slowly transitioning from a city project team to a bid corporation.The bid corporation chair is expected to be named within days and the chief executive officer should be announced within a month, according to Nenshi.The cost of bidding for 2026 is about $30 million, which will be split between the federal and provincial governments and the city if it goes ahead.The plebiscite, which will cost just under $2 million, isn’t included in the bid budget.Nenshi believed the provincial government will contribute funds since the plebiscite was its condition.last_img read more

Torontos Ryerson University says bedbugs found in one of its classrooms

first_imgTORONTO – Bedbugs have been found in a classroom at Toronto’s Ryerson University, the school said Wednesday, noting that it was working to exterminate the insects.A spokeswoman for the downtown university said staff used a canine unit to search two classrooms in its Victoria Building on Tuesday, and found bedbugs in one of the rooms.“Bedbugs were found in a single desk in VIC 205,” Johanna VanderMaas said in a statement. “VIC 205 was treated with steam immediately.”VanderMaas said a canine unit will be brought back into the room on Thursday to ensure it is clear of the bedbugs.“Only once the room is deemed to be clear will students and faculty will be allowed back in,” she said.The school’s efforts came after a student newspaper, The Eyeopener, published a report of insects found inside tables in a classroom. The paper said it took photos of the bugs and sent them to five exterminators, who all said they were bedbugs.Jacob Dube, a student who worked on the piece, said Tuesday that Ryerson students reported seeing insects they believed to be bedbugs in a classroom in the school’s Victoria Building as far back as December.Several students who spotted the insects, including Eyeopener reporter Stefanie Phillips, later said they found what appeared to be bug bites on their skin.Dube said the university had been receptive to the student newspaper’s reporting, with officials asking the students to show them exactly where the bugs were spotted in order to independently verify their information.On Tuesday, Ryerson said it was looking into the matter and noted that students had been helpful in bringing their concerns forward.The university’s campus is located in the downtown core, close to the city’s bustling Yonge and Dundas square.last_img read more

Indigenous man was pepper sprayed before fatal shooting by RCMP in Saskatchewan

first_imgThe Canadian PressA police officer says an Indigenous man who died in 2017 after being shot by Saskatchewan RCMP was hit with pepper spray first.An inquest into the death Brydon Whitstone heard that officers in North Battleford, Sask., had boxed in a vehicle carrying Whitstone and a passenger after a police chase.RCMP Sgt. Pernell St. Pierre told the inquest he broke the car’s passenger side window to get a better look inside.He said he released pepper spray inside the car but Whitstone did not react to it.St. Pierre said Whitstone, who was 22, also didn’t respond to calls from officers to show his hands.The inquest had already heard that Whitstone put his right hand into his pants after he was told to get out of the car, even though he didn’t have a weapon.RCMP officers testified they followed the sedan Whitstone was in because it matched the description of one involved in a possible drive-by shooting, but the car failed to stop.The inquest heard the car Whitstone was driving crashed into two police vehicles and was badly damaged before it finally came to rest.Const. Jerry Abbott, the officer who shot Whitstone, told the inquest Whitstone appeared to reach for something in his pocket which Abbott thought was a gun, so he shot the man from Onion Lake, Sask., twice in the chest.An investigation by Regina police determined no criminal charges should be filed against police.The inquest is expected to conclude Friday.last_img read more

Official Highlights Values Governing Moroccos Policy Over Western Sahara

Rabat – Communication Minister and Government Spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi highlighted, on Thursday in Rabat, the immutable values governing Morocco’s policy over the “Western Sahara.”During a press briefing following the weekly cabinet meeting, held under the chairmanship of head of government Abdelilah Benkirane, the minister highlighted the autonomy proposal which constitutes the framework that would encourage a mutually-acceptable political settlement.The project on the table regarding the future of MINURSO mission “is balanced and in line with the parameters set following the phone conversation between King Mohammed VI and UNSG Ban Ki-moon,” El Khalfi added. The official went on saying that Morocco is convinced of “the pertinence and soundness of its choices” in the management of its relation with the United Nations and other parties, and fully trusts its friends to defend its choices.He noted that Morocco is adopting, at the same time, an integrated and complementary policy based on the promotion of economic and social development in the southern provinces, the setting up of the bases of extensive regionalization, the openness on unbiased and objective UN human rights bodies, in addition to the promotion of human rights across the Kingdom through the reinforcement of the role by the National Council for Human Rights (CNDH).This multidimensional approach, namely the relation with the UN, economic and social development, administrative and territorial policy related to regionalization and human rights, “earned Morocco the esteem of the international community,” said El Khalfi.He also underlined that the Kingdom’s proposals and opinions receive positive feedback, in the service of Morocco’s unwavering choice which is defending its national and territorial integrity. read more

New drive for paediatric HIV treatment launched at global AIDS conference

A new global push to end paediatric AIDS by 2020 was launched today at the 21st International AIDS Conference, the world’s largest forum devoted to any single health or development issue, said the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) today.To achieve this goal, UNAIDS emphasized, “Prevention efforts will need to be matched by an equally robust effort to address the treatment needs of children living with HIV.” The new global push comes at a time when children, aged 0 to 14 years, accounting for 5% of people living with HIV in 2015, represent 10% of all AIDS-related deaths. Half of all children who acquire HIV perinatally die by their second birthday unless they receive antiretroviral therapy, with peak mortality occurring at 6 to 8 weeks of life. Discussions at the Conference also underlined the need to increase the political commitment for paediatric HIV treatment, scaling-up of point-of-care diagnostic tools for children, intensifying testing efforts for older children, strengthening of service delivery and patient monitoring for mothers and their infants, and expanding the array of child-appropriate antiretroviral medicines. The joint UN programme credited sustained gains in preventing new HIV infections among children for laying the groundwork to end paediatric AIDS at least a decade sooner than the global target for the epidemic as a whole. This effort will also support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) relating to health (SDG 3) has a target to end the epidemic of AIDS by 2030.UN Members States, in June 2016, adopted a new political declaration to fast-track progress towards combating HIV and AIDS over the next five years and end the epidemic as a public health threat by 2030. UNAIDS further said that the renewed global push to close paediatric treatment gaps support the AIDS-free component of the Start Free, Stay Free, AIDS Free framework launched by the programme and its partners. read more

Patients wait two months to have hair washed after nurses said not

first_img‘The nurse in charge said staff were often too busy to provide personal care and this meant some patients could go up to two months without having their hair washed’Care Quality Commission report on Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich The inspection found a host of failings including long waits in A&E Credit:Dominic Lipinski/PA  “We spoke with the nurse in charge who said staff were often too busy to provide personal care and this meant some patients could go up to two months without having their hair washed.”Patients in the hospital’s acute medical unit told how they were left “very embarrassed” after being ordered to use pads for incontinence, and sleep in soiled ones, because staff were too busy to help them use a commode.A spokesman for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said: “The report does note that we have made progress since the last CQC inspection in February 2014, and we are pleased that our staff received a rating of ‘Good’ for providing a caring, kind, and compassionate service.”He said the trust planned improvements to care in its wards and A&E department, had made changes to improve privacy and that the failure to record vital signs related to one patient, who had received treatment throughout.  Patients were forced to wait two months to have their hair washed because nurses said it was not their job to help the sick bathe or shower, a damning report says.Queen Elizabeth Hospital in south London has been ordered to make urgent improvements after watchdogs found A&E staff failing to monitor patients’ vital signs, with sick patients treated in chairs and corridors due to overcrowding.Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) intervened after hospital staff failed to notice that a patient with blood poisoning was deteriorating badly. NHS sign The patient – who had suffered a cardiac arrest just six weeks earlier – was left for almost six hours without vital signs being monitored, with action only taken after they began shaking and struggling to breathe.Watchdogs said some staff were found treating patients “sharply” and with a lack of kindness.On medical wards, patients were told to use incontinence pads because staff said they were too busy to help them go to the toilet.The report said: “We spoke with a patient on ward 18 who told us they had repeatedly asked staff for a bath or shower and had been told it wasn’t their job to provide this. Two other patients on this ward told us they would like to have their hair washed but staff told them they were too busy. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Madeleine McCann investigators probe convicted child killer from Germany

A convicted paedophile and serial killer from Germany has emerged as a figure of interest in the hunt for missing Madeleine McCann, according to a former Portuguese detective.Martin Ney, 48, who is serving life in prison for abducting and killing three German children between 1992 and 2001, is reportedly being investigated by officers from Portugal’s Policia Judiciaria.The 48-year-old child sex monster is said to closely resemble a photofit issued by detectives in the case and was understood to have been in Portugal in 2007, when the three-year-old was abducted.Ney, who is in jail in his native Germany, has previously been interviewed by detectives investigating Madeleine’s disappearance but has denied any involvement.Originally from Hamburg, the predatory paedophile targeted children on holiday sometimes entering their apartments or tents wearing a mask and carrying a weapon and other times using camouflage in order to ambush them. Police issued a photofit of a suspect in 2013 Madeleine McCann disappeared in May 2007 from Praia da Luz Madeleine McCann disappeared in May 2007 from Praia da Luz Police issued a photofit of a suspect in 2013 After training as a teacher he is known to have travelled extensively, including to Ecuador, Peru and Portugal. Last Friday marked the 12th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance from her parents’ holiday apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.Scotland Yard currently has a small team of detectives continuing to work on any potential leads.A spokesman for Scotland Yard refused to comment on the claims that a foreign paedophile was now being probed as part of the investigation. He resembles a photofit issued in 2013 of a man who was spotted acting suspiciously in Praia da Luz around the time Madeleine was abducted.Clarence Mitchell, the McCann’s spokesman said: “It might be him and he fits the profile, he is a known predatory paedophile and he’s a foreigner.”It is quite possible and plausible police are looking at him again but it could be someone else. There is a degree of credibility it is Ney but we cannot speculate.”Ney has been previously interviewed by detectives over Madeleine’s abduction, and denied it. He is in a German jail now.”He added: “Kate and Gerry are not in a position to comment on this, nor would they because it is operational detail and they will not discuss it.” In 1992 he killed 13-year-old, Stefan Jahr, the following year he struck again, abducting and murdering eight-year-old Dennis Rostel and then in 2001 he killed eight-year-old Dennis Klein.He is also suspected of killing another child in Holland in 1998 and one in France in 2004.All of Ney’s previous victims have been boys, but police working on the McCann case have continued to consider him as a person of interest. Scotland Yard are continuing to investigate the disappearance of Madeleine McCannCredit:PA But Goncalo Amaral, the controversial former Portuguese police chief, who was sacked in 2007 after claiming the McCanns were involved in their daughter’s disappearance, told the Australian media that a jailed German paedophile was now the main suspect.Last week Cressida Dick, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police confirmed that a small dedicated team, from Operation Grange, continued to investigate Madeleine’s disappearance and were following up a number of lines.She also said they were awaiting a decision from the Home Office whether to continue funding the unit for another year.

Panasonic Hospi Is a Robot Helper For Hotels

first_img Review: ‘Daemon X Machina’ Has Big Robots, Small Fun on Nintendo SwitchThis Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow Blower Stay on target You’re going to start encountering a lot of robots when you travel, it seems. They’ll be guiding you through busy airports and attending to your needs when you check in to your hotel.LG’s new bots will greet you on the concourse, and Panasonic’s will be waiting for you in the lounge and hotel lobby. This smiley little fellow is HOSPI(R), and he’s actully being given double duty to start his new career.I say new career because HOSPI isn’t a brand new creation. Panasonic already has a number of HOSPI bots that are employed in the health care sector. Those units have been tasked with picking up and delivering medication and taking various specimens to the lab for testing.HOSPI is now moving from hospitals to hospitality. He’ll offer hotel guests a chilled bottle of water in the lobby and make important announcements like when the next courtesy shuttle is leaving.Like LG’s robots, he’s also going to learn the ropes at the airport. At Narita International in Tokyo, he’ll be busing tables in the lounge.Like most robots tasked with serving humans, HOSPI is packed with sensors that allow him to navigate busy areas without adding to the chaos.Panasonic thinks HOSPI can ease some of the tourist burdens that’s headed Japan’s way in a few short years. Airports and hotels are already gearing up for the 2020 Olympics, and HOSPI is the kind of robot that could free up human staff for more complex duties… things that require an actual human touch.last_img read more

Mourinho A player asked me to not criticize him in public

first_imgDuring his time as a pundit for BeIn Sports, Jose Mourinho revealed that a Man United player didn’t like it when he criticized him in public.Jose Mourinho’s ways with his players have always been pretty straight forward, his tactic is to push all the players to a point where they either break or become better footballers.Throughout Jose Mourinho’s career, there have been many players who had very public problems with him and many of them even went to war with the manager.The case of Iker Casillas at Real Madrid comes to mind, but the Portuguese manager became the enemy with many of those players and the whole situation ended in a very similar manner to the one at Manchester United.There is a clear pattern that emerged long ago, but manager Jose Mourinho seems to have understood the problem a little better.In his many revelations during his new job as a pundit for BeIn Sports, Jose Mourinho spoke about a mysterious player from Manchester United who approached him and very politely asked him to critique him in private rather than in front of all the other players.It’s hard to guess who this mysterious player is, but we have out money on either Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, or Luke Shaw.All of these players were publicly criticized by Mourinho, even in front of the cameras.Jose Mourinho on new generation of players. #MourinhoVia @beINSPORTS pic.twitter.com/KzaAQBlYzI— Harry Minhas (@harrym20) January 18, 2019These revelations also brought up a certain learning experience from Mourinho, which he shared during this Saturday’s broadcast for BeIn Sports.“Recently, when I was coaching one player he told me and he was very polite, ‘please when you criticize me can you do it in private’,” he said as quoted by BBC Sport.“I told him why? ‘Because of my stature, in front of the other players when you criticize me I don’t feel comfortable’.”“Nowadays you have to be very smart in the way you read your players, and try to create the best situation.”“With Drogba, he is the kind of player that the more pressure from the manager, the more quality in his performance,” Mourinho added.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“There are some players where if you squeeze them they answer in the best way.”“There are other mentalities and personalities and the reaction is not the best. They were brought up in a different way, an easier social life, coming to the top level of football, everything came too easy to them.”“Some of them they don’t react in the same way. Certain moments, some strong public words, some of them have some risk,” he concluded.Jose Mourinho reveals one Man Utd player who did not respond well to criticismhttps://t.co/mILLT0zYDE pic.twitter.com/Z3SrX0wmCl— Mirror Football (@MirrorFootball) January 19, 2019After three very difficult experiences in the last three clubs he managed, Jose Mourinho must have learned something along the way and there is a big chance that the last job at Manchester United will help him grow as a professional manager.There is no way that Jose Mourinho will approach to his next job in the same manner ever again, his last experiences at Real Madrid, his second spell at Chelsea and the Red Devils must have been enough for him to learn his lesson.However, if Jose Mourinho still feels that he is the one who is always right about his approach with the players, then he is the one in the wrong here.The man may never reveal who this player was, only he knows who asked him to change his tune and he may take this secret to the grave.It’s a little amusing that the man stated he wouldn’t talk about Manchester United, but he is spilling the beans about pretty much everything little by little.The journalists who are asking him these questions put him on the spot, but he could’ve easily refused to answer and yet he didn’t.Mourinho: “The phrase I kept with me, the biggest one in the Premier League, Sir Alex told – ‘the day a player is more important than the club, goodbye!’ – not anymore. The manager is there to coach them. Not to keep discipline at any cost.” #mufc [beIN] pic.twitter.com/s4GxJkDlqX— United Xtra (@utdxtra) January 17, 2019Why do you think Jose Mourinho is revealing more secrets about his time at Manchester United?

Marriage equality and mourning Mildred Boesser fought till the end

first_imgWhen the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage nationwide last week, President Obama called the ruling “a consequence of the countless small acts of courage of millions of people across decades who stood up.”Mildred Boesser stood 5 feet tall, and she was one of those people. On the day of the ruling, Boesser was on her deathbed at home in Juneau, surrounded by family.Download AudioSara Boesser and Mildred Boesser in September, 2014. (Photo by Melissa Griffiths)“Friday she was still up and in the chair and talking and holding court and doing well,” says Sara Boesser, Mildred’s daughter. “But she was ready to go and she said, ‘Why am I still here? Why am I still here? I am ready.’ And then the Supreme Court ruling came through and she said, ‘That’s why I’m still here,’ and she was so happy.”The wife of an Episcopalian minister, Mildred spent decades fighting for gay rights and marriage equality. Just last year, shetestified to the legislature in support of a bill that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.“For the record, I’m 88 years old. I’ve lived in Alaska since 1959. I’ve been married for 65 years to the same man and together we’ve raised four children. I’m also a Christian and my faith informs what I do,” Mildred said. “I can’t begin to tell you how saddened I am by the fact that in this great state I love so dearly, a person can be fired legally from a job, evicted from housing, denied credit or financing simply because of whom they happen to love.”Sara Boesser and her partner Juanita Reese recently got engaged. (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO)Mildred’s advocacy work stemmed from her daughter Sara.Sara recounts her mother visiting her while she was a senior at the University of Washington in Seattle. It was the early 1970s.“I was working at a bookstore called Madwomen Bookstore downtown and it had a lot of feminist and progressive and some lesbian books,” Sara says.As they were leaving the store, Sara decided at that moment to tell her mother:“At the crosswalk, light hit green and we started across the crosswalk. I said, ‘Mom, did you know that I’m a lesbian?’ She kind of kept going and she looked at me and said, ‘No, but I’m glad you told me, but that doesn’t change anything about what I feel for you.’ And we got across the crosswalk.”Throughout the years, Mildred spoke up in the State Capitol Building, in city halls across Alaska and knocked on doors in support of gay rights. Sara says her mother never missed an opportunity to testify in the Capitol, even when Sara herself was discouraged.“At some point it became too difficult for me to go back to those same legislators and tell them again that we are no threat. I couldn’t do it anymore,” Sara says. “And my mother still would. She wouldn’t even sometimes tell me she’d done it and then I read about it in the paper and think, ‘Wow, way to go Mildred.’”Liz Dodd is a close family friend. She worked alongside Mildred in 1998 against the state constitutional amendment that defined marriage as between a man and a woman. Dodd says the hearings were antagonistic and she recalls times when lawmakers were rude.“You would have this bank of legislators sitting around their little dais there and little Mildred at the table in front of them, soft spoken, just preaching love basically,” Dodd says.Sara Boesser was honored to be Mildred’s daughter.“People would stop me on the street always and say, ‘I love your mother. She’s my surrogate mother. She’s my grandmother. She’s a mother to us all.’ I was always very proud of her,” Sara says.The respect was mutual, says Dodd. Dodd recounts her last conversation with Mildred.“She started to talk about Sara and how Sara was her hero and how Sara inspired her and made her stronger,” Dodd says. “And she said, ‘I had brought this person into the world and then all through the years, I’ve watched her in absolute amazement at who she is.’”After the Supreme Court ruling, Sara announced to her mother and father that she and her partner of four years are getting married.“The last day that she was alive, she said, ‘I’m sorry I’m going to miss your wedding.’ I said, ‘Oh, don’t worry mom. You’re my first invitee and you’re going to be there with us, don’t you worry,’” Sara says.Mildred Boesser passed away at age 90 on June 29, 2015. She is survived by her husband Mark, her four daughters and countless others who considered Mildred their mother.last_img read more

HoustonArea Residents Have Their Say On The HighSpeed Rail Project

first_img 00:00 /01:04 There was a line out the door at at meeting in northwest Harris County on the high-speed rail project.Texas Central Railway says the privately-funded project will get riders between Houston and Dallas in only 90 minutes while providing jobs and pumping tax revenue into local communities.Janice Shaw lives in the Tomball area, a couple of miles from the train’s proposed route. She says she’s looking forward to a new transportation option where you don’t have to drive.“Just being able to get on the train and go up,” said Shaw. “In Dallas they have a good rail system, a good bus system, so you can get all over.”The Federal Railroad Administration has been holding meetings along the train’s proposed route to get public comment on a draft environmental impact study. The majority of speakers at Monday’s night meeting in Cypress said they were against the rail line. Some said the train would disrupt their rural quality-of-life. Others feared the project would eventually require taxpayer dollars.One of the people at the meeting was Crystal Stewart. She has about 13 acres in Madisonville, northwest of Huntsville. Stewart says she inherited the property and her family has farmed there for decades. She’s now worried Texas Central will try to seize it by eminent domain.“It would change it completely,” said Stewart. “It would no longer be the country. It would no longer be rural land. It would no longer be the place that I go for serenity, for self-care.”The Federal Railroad Administration is expected to release a final report later this year on the train’s environmental impact. Comments about the train’s proposed route are also being taken online. The deadline to comment is March 9.  To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen X Sharelast_img read more

DCs Top Cop Leaves for NFL

first_imgIn a surprise move, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier announced Aug. 16 that she will become the National Football League’s new senior vice president for security in September. When she steps down in two weeks, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) will appoint an interim successor and launch a nationwide search for the permanent replacement.D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier is leaving the department to work for the NFL. (Courtesy Photo)The departure of Lanier to a new job has District residents thinking about her tenure and who her replacement should be. D.C. Council member Kenyon McDuffie (-Ward 5) said he is looking forward to that process. “Given the national focus on community-police relations, it will be important that our next police chief come with a breadth of experience and leadership to continue to move the department forward,” he told the AFRO.There is widespread speculation in the community on who should succeed Lanier. On NewsChannel 8’s NewsTalk with Bruce DePuyt on Aug. 17, Ward 8 community activist Philip Pannell endorsed the department’s Assistant Chief Diane Groomes. “She knows the community well,” Pannell said.Ward 5 Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Kathy Henderson has her choice, too. “I think Assistant Chief Lamar Greene should get the job,” she said. Greene heads the department’s homeland security and special operations divisions. “He has the capability to lead the troops well and he gets along with the citizens.”Greene is not the only possible candidate getting support. Cinque Culver, the president of the River Terrace Community Association in Ward 7, said he favored Commander David Taylor. “I think Commander David Taylor should be the next chief,” he said. “I don’t know anyone else who could do a better job. He has done a great job at the Sixth District. The Sixth District covers Northeast and Southeast quadrants of the city and is located primarily in Ward 7.Lanier, a lifelong Washington, D.C. area resident, joined the police force in 1990 and steadily progressed through the ranks until D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty tapped her as the first female police chief in the District’s history in 2007.Lanier has been a popular figure in the District with a NBC4/Washington Post/Marist poll in September 2014 showing a 74 percent approval rating and even with the spike in crime experienced in 2015, {he Daily Caller’s Nov. 18, 2015 edition reported a 61 percent positive rating.“Cathy Lanier was a good police chief overall,” Culver told the AFRO. “She was very responsive to community leaders and we appreciate her presence at forums and community events. She was a good and compassionate lady.”Culver admired the way Lanier used data in her crime fighting techniques, often bringing charts, slides, and digital tools in her presentations to the community.While Lanier has been praised for technological upgrades, improving the police department’s overall public image among District residents and visitors, and taking on tough situations such as 2010 South Capitol Street shootings that left five people dead and nine injured, many of whom were teenagers and September 2013 Navy Yard shootings. Her critics point out her skirting the law and police-union agreements in the implementation of the “All Hands on Deck” procedures that require officers to be on duty for long hours for a few days without any administrative recourse, and her harsh punishments for police personnel whom were deemed not to be in her favor.D.C. Council member Brandon Todd (D-Ward 4) told the AFRO that he wants the next chief “to focus on community policing. We want the next chief to push our officers to do their very best,” he said.last_img read more

Viruses are 10x better at infecting humans in the morning

first_imgGetting ill sucks regardless of when it happens, although I’d argue around the holidays is the worst time to be sick. There’s lots of precautions you can take to avoid illness, and most of them are simple such as regularly washing your hands. But a recent study out of the University of Cambridge has discovered a new and interesting fact about viral infections: they are much more successful in the mornings.A virus takes hold by entering your body and then replicating inside living cells using the body’s own machinery against it to spread. Depending on how well it replicates, you get ill as your body fights to rid itself of the invader. What the Cambridge research team found is that a virus entering the human body in the morning is 10-times more successful at infection.The reason for this has been put down to our internal body clock (circadian rhythm) and how the work our cells do changes throughout the day. A virus requires the body to be working at full capacity to have the best chance of success, which is the case in the mornings. So a virus finds it much easier to enter the cells, infect them, and spread using the available resources in the AM. However, later in the day the body’s work slows, the cells aren’t as active, and it’s harder for a virus to take hold and thrive, and therefore can be a much less severe infection. If you disrupt the body clock, infection rate is always high (that’s bad news for shift workers).This discovery is important as Professor Akhilesh Reddy, who headed up the study, believes it can be used to help control disease outbreaks in the future. It also means different people can be prioritized for treatment based on what they do. For example, shift workers with disrupted body clocks should get the flu vaccine as a priority every year as they are highly susceptible.As individuals, we can take this new information on board and protect ourselves from getting ill more effectively. Take more precautions in the mornings, avoid contact with people who are ill more readily before lunch, and you may just avoid a bout of illness.last_img read more
