  • Mayfield and Chubb combine to carry Browns past Ravens 40-25

    first_imgMOST READ Mayfield threw for 342 yards and a touchdown, Nick Chubb ran for a pivotal 88-yard score and the Browns beat the Baltimore Ravens 40-25 Sunday to earn a share of first place in the AFC North.Chubb finished with 165 yards and three touchdowns against the league’s third-ranked rushing defense. Jarvis Landry had eight catches for 167 yards before leaving with a suspected concussion, and Odell Beckham Jr. had two catches for 20 yards in a supporting role.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSBecoming his own manSPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40The addition of Beckham and the maturation of Mayfield, combined with an improved defense, created high expectations for the Browns (2-2) during the offseason. Then Cleveland started 1-2, losing twice at home. Worse, Mayfield threw five interceptions and just three touchdown passes.None of that mattered after the Browns breezed past the Ravens. This jewelry designer is also an architect CHOKE HOLDBeckham and Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey tangled several times during the game and got into a heated scuffle in the third quarter. Beckham threw a punch and Humphrey choked him after they wrestled to the ground. Both players were penalized.“I ran to him after the game, apologized,” Humphrey said. “That’s not really the brand of football I really want to represent. When the whistle blows, it’s got to be over with.”HAIL BRIANThe Ravens inducted former coach Brian Billick into the team’s Ring of Honor, adding his name to the facade on the upper deck.

Simple as that,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “We’re not doing our assignment the way we’re supposed to, too many times, and it’s costing us big plays.”ADVERTISEMENT Becoming his own man Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (24) prepares to cross the goal line after avoiding several tackles from Baltimore Ravens defenders during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019, in Baltimore.

Mayfield hit Landry for 65 yards and connected with Ricky Seals-Jones for 59. Then, of course, there was that 88-yard run. In all, the Browns had 10 plays of at least 16 yards.As a result, Cleveland finds itself tied atop the division with the Ravens, who won it last year. It’s the first time Cleveland has been in first place after four games since 2013.“We haven’t really won anything,” Kitchens conceded. “Guys, it’s just one game.”Still, it’s worth noting that Cleveland went 1-15 in 2016 and 0-16 just two years ago, and this victory came against a team that owned a 30-10 lead in a series that began in 1999 — three years after Art Modell moved the original Browns to Baltimore.Jackson’s deft passing and elusive running were a key part of Baltimore’s 2-0 start, but for a second straight week he couldn’t make up for his own team’s porous defense. He got the Ravens to 24-18 with 9:51 left before Chubb took a pitch deep in his own territory, burst through a hole on the right side and ran untouched into the end zone.“Anybody could have ran through that hole,” Chubb said.A subsequent fourth-down gamble by Baltimore failed before Jackson threw successive interceptions. The first one ended a run of 248 passes without being picked off.Jackson went 24 of 34 for 247 yards and three scores. He had 66 yards rushing.Down 17-10, the Ravens were moving for the potential tying score when Mark Ingram had the ball pried loose by Jermaine Whitehead, and Chad Thomas recovered at the Cleveland 26. It was Baltimore’s first turnover of the season.The Browns immediately went the other way and grabbed a two-touchdown advantage late in the third quarter with a 2-yard run by Chubb.

  • NHL tests puck and player tracking in regularseason games

    first_imgLAS VEGAS — The NHL for the first time has tested real-time puck and player tracking in regular-season games and intends to have it in place across the league next season.Microchips were added to players’ shoulder pads and fitted inside specially designed pucks for two Vegas Golden Knights home games this week, against the New York Rangers and the San Jose Sharks. Antennas around the arena tracked the players and the puck through radio frequencies and relayed the data to a suite where league and Players’ Association executives and representatives from 20 teams and various technology firms, sports betting companies and TV rights holders were watching.Previous versions of puck and player tracking were tested at All-Star games and the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. The latest tests were intended to refine the logistics of using the technology in meaningful games and to show how the real-time statistics can be used on broadcasts, in betting applications and even to create virtual reality and augmented reality simulations.Stephen Whyno, The Associated Presslast_img read more

  • Parents budget for term time holiday fines rather than keep their children

    first_imgJon Platt lost his legal challenge today at the Supreme Court, over a fine for taking his daughter on holiday during term-time After passing through the Magistrates, High Court and Court of Appeal, the high-profile dispute was finally settled in the Supreme Court, where it was concluded that even half a day’s absence was a breach of the law.Mr Platt was subsequently sent back to the Isle of Wight Magistrates, where he was fined £2,000 for failing to pay a £60 truanting fine.The most recent figures released by the Department for Education show that the number of parents taking their children on term-time holidays has risen despite a Supreme Court ruling that such absences are unlawful.Official statistics show that 8.9 million days in unauthorised absence were recorded during the autumn and spring terms of the last academic year, up from 7.4 million the previous year.Meanwhile, nearly two million pupils took at least one day off without permission, up from 1.7 million during the same period.

Parents are budgeting for term time holiday fines rather than keeping their children in school, as figures show that the number of penalties issued by many councils is on the rise.In England and Wales, 155 local authorities have issued around 400,000 penalties over the past three years. On average, 12 penalties were issued per 1,000 children – whether for truancy or for parents taking children away on holiday during term time – during the last academic year.However, there is wide variation among councils, with some issuing at rates five times the average, according to figures obtained by the BBC under freedom of information laws.Campaigners have warned that many parents are prepared to pay the £60 fine when they are planning a holiday during term time, since they are saving far more than this by travelling outside of the peak season.Craig Langman, of the group Parents Want A Say, told The Telegraph: “For those who can afford it, they will factor in the fine to the price of the holiday and they are still saving a fortune.”last_img read more

  • Patrina Grivas a disabled victim of neglect at Australian care facility

    first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Disabled Patrina Grivas has suffered years of neglect and injuries in state care, says her mother.Her parents, Lilly and Chris Grivas, had been advised to put her into state care when she was two years old and it was predicted that she would never walk or live a normal childhood after being diagnosed with a severe intellectual disability due to complications at birth.By the age of 24, she could play basketball and even go on overseas holidays with her parents. By 42 years of age, after being moved into a group home and spending a great amount of her time in state care, she has lost her independence, living in a barren room in a share house.Mrs Grivas said that her daughter’s sharp decline was due to a series of verbal abuse from an abusive carer. Ahead of the royal commission into abuse of people with disabilities, Mrs Grivas has pointed to unexplained injuries faced by her daughter.“My daughter is not the same girl she was 10 years ago,” Mrs Grivas told the ABC. In 2016, she suffered from hypothermia, nearly dying after being accidently locked outside overnight with no clothes in winter. “They found my daughter locked outside in the early hours of the morning screaming for help, no clothes on, just a nappy.”The disabled woman’s care provider, House With No Steps, complains that the NSW State Government was moving its disability services to the NDIS and only three days were given to adjust to the new home. The funding that Patrina had at the time only qualified her for “sleep-over care” and not one where carers had to watch over her.In another incident, Patrina had to be subdued, was placed in handcuffs and placed at the back of a wagon. Refering to the incident that took place in 2017, the care provider states that they were worried that she would self-harm and had to subdue her.In another incident the same year, another carer recorded a colleague verbally assaulting Patrina as she sat naked on her bed. The two-minute recording was reportedly just a snippet of a half-hour ordeal for the woman.Despite taking the matter to the police, the NSW Police officers had decided to allow House WIth No Steps to deal with the issue internally. The carer states that the worker was stood down and ultimately sacked.Mrs Grivas however states that Patrina suffered. She has photos of wounds to her daughter’s feet and is worried that her daughter lost weight due to the conditions she had to endure at the care facility. At a routine doctor visit, the mother had been informed that at one stage Patrina had broken five ribs but her family had not been informed of this to explain why her daughter had always been hunched up to one side during her mother’s visits.There are even reports of some staff members wearing clothes reportedly purchased for Patrina.Since charges were taken, staff members have been testing new activities with the young woman.Following a series of reports by the ABC in 2017 the Labor Party said, if elected, it would call a royal commission.last_img read more

  • Quand la biologie de synthèse pose des questions éthiques

    first_imgQuand la biologie de synthèse pose des questions éthiquesLes techniques d’ingénierie génétique permettent aujourd’hui de créer du vivant. Toutefois, de nombreuses questions éthiques se posent.De nos jours, la question mérite d’être posée : Peut-on créer du “vivant artificiel” ? A-t-on le droit de “construire du vivant” ? En effet, les techniques d’ingénierie génétique utilisées par les pionniers de la biologie de synthèse, qui transforment des bactéries en usines vivantes, soulèvent des questions éthiques.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En réalité, le problème est même d’ordre philosophique. Cela pourrait se résumer à la question posée lors d’un colloque organisé récemment par l’association Vivagora : “Qu’est-ce que l’artificiel, si on utilise les mêmes mécanismes que ceux qui sont dans la nature ? ” En effet, de nos jours, la frontière entre le vivant et l’artificiel se brouille tout autant que celle qui sépare le réel de la science-fiction. Ainsi, des bactéries, dont l’ADN a été largement modifié, peuvent détecter d’infimes traces d’arsenic dans de l’eau, être à la base de médicaments contre le paludisme ou encore permettre de produire de nouveaux biocarburants… “L’artificiel d’une génération devient souvent le naturel de la suivante, c’est particulièrement vrai pour les produits de l’agriculture”, relève Bernard Baertschi cité par l’AFP.Ce philosophe rappelle que les céréales actuelles sont issues de croisements et d’une intense sélection faite par l’homme. Ce sont des mutations génétiques savamment orchestrées par l’homme qui ont donné des agrumes sans pépin. M. Baertschi cite une phrase de Rousseau qui doit donner à réfléchir : “Tout dégénère entre les mains de l’homme”. Autre sujet de réflexion : “On avait une évolution darwinienne, l’homme est capable de le faire beaucoup plus rapidement, laisse-t-on faire”?, interroge-t-il. Pour lui, “est artificiel ce sur quoi nous avons pouvoir” et nous en sommes responsables.Le vivant soumis à un intense brevetage ? Avec la biologie synthétique, on a aujourd’hui la possibilité de “programmer le vivant comme on programmerait des ordinateurs”. Pour le bioinformaticien Franck Delaplace, “ce qui cristallise les peurs”, c’est “ce que fera l’économie de cette chose-là”. Devrons-nous un jour “payer pour vivre” si le vivant fait l’objet d’un intense brevetage ? D’autant qu’il est difficile de savoir exactement où nous en sommes. Si les chercheurs affirment parfois n’en être qu’au stade de la recherche fondamentale et vouloir mieux comprendre le vivant, ils vantent également les bénéfices attendus pour la santé ou l’environnement, avec notamment des bactéries dévoreuses de pollution.Le 10 février 2012 à 14:18 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

  • Samedi à 20H30 éteignez toutes les lumières pour lEarth Hour

    first_imgSamedi, à 20H30 éteignez toutes les lumières pour l’Earth HourSamedi, le WWF lancera la 5e édition de l’Earth Hour. De 20H30 à 21H30, l’organisation appelle les citoyens, villes et entreprises à éteindre toutes les lumières afin de lutter contre le réchauffement climatique.Que ferez-vous samedi entre 20H30 et 21H30 ? Même si vous ne le savez pas encore, le WWF vous invite à le faire dans le noir complet ! Pour la cinquième fois consécutive, l’organisation internationale invite tous les citoyens, pouvoirs publics, villes et entreprises à participer à l’Earth hour. Le principe ? Eteindre pendant une heure toutes les lumières pour sensibiliser à l’économie d’énergie et par là même à la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique. C’est en 2007 à Sydney, en Australie, que la première édition de l’Earth Hour avait été lancée. Elle avait alors rassemblé à l’époque 2,2 millions de personnes et plus de 2.000 entreprises. Tous avaient éteint leurs lumières pendant une heure pour participer à l’effort international. Un an plus tard, plus de 50 millions de personnes dans 35 pays participants faisaient de même. Devenue aujourd’hui “LA manifestation mondiale en faveur de la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique” selon Ban Ki-moon, secrétaire général des Nations Unies, Earth Hour devrait mobiliser cette année pas moins de 5251 villes et 150 pays, si l’on en croit le site dédié.La Tour Eiffel, l’Empire State Building, les pyramides de Gizeh, le Colisée de Rome, le Christ rédempteur à Rio, l’acropole d’Athènes, la tour Burj Khalifa à Dubaï ou encore la Cité interdite : 1.200 monuments devraient également éteindre leurs lumières samedi soir. Mais “au-delà du geste symbolique qu’est l’extinction des lumières pendant 60 minutes, les participants d’Earth Hour sont invités à rejoindre le mouvement lancé par le WWF dans le monde pour réduire leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre à travers une action concrète tout au long de l’année afin de maîtriser leur consommation d’énergie”, précise également le site de l’Earth Hour.Un faible risque de surtension À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéMais “pour réaliser des économies d’énergie et préserver l’environnement, quelques gestes simples suffisent, et cela sans remise en cause de notre confort !” A ce propos,les détracteurs de cette opération évoque très souvent un risque de surtension électrique une fois l’Earth Hour terminée lorsque tout le monde rallume les lumières. Une possibilité que le WWF juge peu probable. En effet, l’organisation explique que les personnes qui célèbrent l’Earth Hour ne rallument pas toutes les lumières tous à la même heure. Si tel était le cas, celle-ci tient à souligner qu’elle travaille de toute façon avec le Réseau de transport d’électricité (RTE) pour limiter le risque de ce genre de scénario. Une telle surtension est donc très peu probable selon le WWF.Pour participer ou avoir davantage d’informations sur la manifestation, rendez-vous sur le site dédié : http://earthhour.fr/Le 30 mars 2012 à 18:56 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

  • Air India narrows June quarter loss to Rs 246 crore

    first_imgAir India’s operational margins were affected by intense fare war unleashed by private carriers during the June 2016 (Q1) quarter, leading to the state-run carrier posting operational loss of Rs 246 crore. The silver lining was that the carrier narrowed its loss from Rs 316 crore in the corresponding quarter last year.Revenues grew 2.62 per cent to Rs 4,724 crore from Rs 4,603 crore in the year-ago period, according to The Economic Times. Air India had expected to post operating profit of Rs 90 crore in Q1.The carrier’s average revenue per passenger dropped 16 per cent on a year-on-year basis even though its membership of Star Alliance enabled it to grow its revenues, the Business Standard reported, citing a senior Air India executive who was confident of better performance in the second half of the current fiscal.”About 60 per cent of the revenue is earned in the second half of a financial year. We are expanding service to San Francisco and adding new service between Delhi-Madrid. Our load factors are growing and occupancy in premium cabins too is improving,” the executive told the daily.High debt-servicing costsThe carrier’s Rs 45,000-crore debt is forcing it to pay a huge sum as interest every year, affecting its profitability and efforts are on to restructure the debt.”Air India today has to annually pay Rs 4,000 crore to banks to service debt. It is a huge amount of money and profitability would be much easier if you remove that. I am committed to making the airline profitable on a year-on-year basis, but some debt restructuring needs to be done,” Ashwani Lohani, Air India chairman, told ET Now in July.Market share, PLFAir India’s market share in the domestic air traffic is about 15 per cent and it has a passenger load factor that has consistently declined from 84 per cent in May, to 82 per cent in June and 77.3 per cent in August, according to civil aviation regulator data.last_img read more

  • 12 killed in Thailand torrential rains

    first_imgA young child eats at her home near floodwaters in Bendang Pak Yong, Malaysia’s northeastern town of Tumpat, which borders with Thailand. Photo: AFPHeavy rains continued to hammer Thailand’s flood-ravaged south on Saturday, bringing the death toll up to 12 and leaving thousands of villages partially submerged, authorities said.The flooding, which was roof-high in some areas, has affected more than 700,000 people since it started a week ago, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.At least 12 people have died, according to the ministry and local officials, with the rain turning roads into rivers, inundating farmland and damaging more than 1,500 schools in the region.The downpour is expected to persist for at least two more days, according to Thailand’s Meteorological Department, which warned of flash floods.“The situation is very bad today and tomorrow. It’s still raining heavily,” said Junjuda Pornsri, a meterological official.Military bases across the region have been mobilised to help evacuate flood victims, provide temporary shelters and distribute emergency aid, the government said.In hard-hit Nakhon Si Thammarat province, two army helicopters were deployed to airlift food to families trapped inside their homes in Cha-uat district.Bapha Suthiphanya, a 60-year-old who has spent the past three nights in a makeshift government shelter in the district, said she was forced to evacuate her home after the waters rose above her head.“I was so shocked and scared. I’ve never seen water like this and I also can not swim,” she told AFP.Peak tourist seasonThe monsoon rains are unusually heavy for this time of year in Thailand, which normally sees a three-month stretch of relatively dry and cool weather starting in November.It is high season for tourists who flock to the kingdom’s island resorts, powering a crucial sector of the economy.But the deluge has already disrupted beach holidays in several traveller hotspots, including the popular islands of Samui and Phangan.Hundreds of tourists have had their flights delayed, while train and bus services on the mainland have also been suspended.Yet some travellers are refusing to let the storm stop the fun, with photos doing the rounds on social media of tourists coasting through flooded streets on pool floats.Neighbouring Malaysia was also hit by severe flooding earlier this week, with thousands stranded in relief centres in two northeastern states.But by Saturday, the number of evacuees in Kelantan and Terengganu had dropped to about 13,500, from almost 23,000 Wednesday, as weather conditions improved and authorities forecast less rainfall over the weekend.Prime minister Najib Razak visited Kelantan on Saturday and met with people seeking shelter at a relief centre.last_img read more

  • As Head of DOE Perry Would Favor Policies That Increase Natural Gas

    first_imgUPDATE:  The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has postponed a meeting that had been scheduled for Tuesday to vote on the nominations of Ryan Zinke and Rick Perry to head the departments of Interior and Energy. –Associated PressFormer Gov. Rick Perry faces a confirmation vote in the Senate on Tuesday for his nomination to lead the U.S. Department of Energy. Among all the questions Perry’s appointment has raised, one that’s gotten little scrutiny is what it might mean for natural gas prices.The Energy Department is one of the agencies that decides how much liquefied natural gas (LNG) the U.S. can export. But there’s a catch, as Maine Sen. Angus King explained at Perry’s Senate hearing last week.“For the DOE to issue a permit it has to be in the public interest,” he said.LISTEN: KUT’s Mose Buchele reports.So what does that mean? There are environmental and natural security implications to exporting. Environmental groups say it increases pollution and exacerbates climate change. Those in favor of exports think it gives the U.S. more leverage in foreign affairs. The Energy Information Administration says natural gas prices will rise over the next two years.But what King was talking about was domestic economic impacts. When natural gas is cheaper here than overseas, many U.S. companies can make money exporting it.Gurcan Gulen, a research scientist at UT’s Bureau of Economic Geology says over the last several years “many, many companies wanted to do this, and they had to get permits.”The economic activity generated by exports may have a marginal benefit on the economy, according to this analysis. But keeping cheaper gas in the country also brings benefits in the form of lower prices for factories, power plants and ratepayers.That’s what King was getting at when he questioned Perry.“My request of you is to be sure that the public interest definition includes affect on domestic prices,” he said. “Will you give me that commitment?”Perry, in a nutshell, said no.“If we produce it in America … it makes abundant good sense to sell it to the world,” he said.So, would exporting natural gas raise its price domestically?A U.S. Energy Information Administration analysis says yes. As gas exports increase, so do gas bills here. And the agency expects LNG exports to rise over the next couple years.But UT’s Gulen doesn’t believe they’ll rise dramatically.“Right now the global LNG market is a little bit oversupplied,” he said.He added that could change if the global economy starts to pick up steam. Copyright 2017 KUT-FM.

  • Bowser Pushes to Give DC Residents a Fair Shot During State Of

    first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterMayor Muriel Bowser gave her State of the District Address on March 18 promising to keep pushing her mission of offering everyone in D.C. a “Fair Shot.”The address was held at the University of the District of Columbia – Theater of the Arts (Auditorium) 4200 Connecticut Avenue and Windom Place, NW. It was at once a formal event while also filled with spirit and spontaneous moments.District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser gave her State of the District of Address on March 18 emphasizing every D.C. resident should get a “Fair Shot.” (Photo by Rob Roberts)Before she spoke, a sizzle reel of recent events in the District was shown. Everything from cutting the ribbon to the Audi Field, to the closing of D.C. General Hospital, to celebrating the Washington Capitals 2018 Stanley Cup victory.Bowser started her speech taking a swing at the current presidential administration saying, “In 2016, I know D.C. was hoping for and expecting a different outcome.”“We came out and made our voices heard. You came out strong for D.C. Statehood, a new constitution and boundaries that define a federal enclave. But things at the top of the ticket didn’t quite go as we had hoped…and so here we are.“Two years ago, at my State of the District address, I called on the President to work with D.C. on a range of issues that would make our city and our nation stronger. But for progress on revitalizing Franklin Park, I could stand here and recite the exact same list.“Over these past two years, instead of investments in infrastructure, housing and schools, we’ve gotten tweets, parade plans and shutdowns,” Bowser said.“Locally, though, we’ve stood by our D.C. values.”But even with the political jabs, Bowser stayed on her now seminal mission.“The truth is – I will work with anyone who wants to help us give more Washingtonians a fair shot. And while I will continue working with this Administration, it is time to think about our collective future. We’ve got to start looking ahead at the national debate in 2020.”She publicly urged the Council to move the District’s presidential primary schedule up to April instead of June, saying, “We know what the Bible says, “the first shall be last, and the last shall be first.” But in presidential primaries, the last, well, they’re just last.”“Voting last sends the wrong message. It reinforces the incorrect notion that since D.C. isn’t a state therefore we don’t matter, that we shouldn’t be taken seriously. It reinforces the notion that we can be taken for granted or discarded,” the mayor said.“We’ve seen what happens when Americans are dismissed, discounted and forgotten.”The Mayor gave shout outs to South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Cory Booker,  and Senator Kamala Harris when she spoke of 2020 hopefuls.“I also look forward to engaging candidates like Mayor Pete from South Bend, Indiana. I know I’m biased as a fellow  mayor, but I quite like the idea of having a president who understands the importance of not just talking about infrastructure, but actually investing in infrastructure.“And Senator Kamala Harris who, like us, is looking at how we can use tax credits and cash payments to recognize and reduce the financial strain middle class families in our nation are feeling,” she said.“What we want to know is how these candidates will work for Washingtonians?”On the local front the Mayor reiterated a balanced budget and fiscal responsibility throughout the District, talking about how over the last two decades D.C. went from a federal Control Board to a AAA bond rating.The Mayor spoke of how certain implementations helped to give D.C. residents a “fair shot,” including a $1,000 Early Learning Tax Credit for families, which will be made permanent, a $14 minimum wage which will rise to $15 in 2020 and the Kids Ride Free Program.A robust transportation system was one of Mayor’s most important missions. She started with offering free D.C. Circulator rides during February, then March. Now the D.C. Circulator will be free from now on, however the mayor made it clear what the District’s agenda was saying:“But, as much as we love the Circulator, Streetcar and Capital Bikeshare, we also know that they are no replacement for Metro.“We have always prioritized safety, reliability and building the capacity for Metro. So now – we need a commitment from Metro that they will return to late-night hours and that they will not become a system that only caters to white-collar workers commuting from the suburbs.“We’re not going to replace Metro with Uber and Lyft because we can’t move our region forward by further clogging our roads,” the mayor emphasized. “We need a Metro system that works as hard as our workforce and stays open as late as our region.”But it was when the Mayor spoke about housing that the crowd became most excited and at times most agitated as protestors chanted and interrupted part of her speech.Bowser pushed through continuing her plan to address homelessness, affordable housing and even the rising fatal shootings in the District.“In a city as prosperous as ours, it is our responsibility to decide how and when we adjust our policies to ensure that everyone living and doing business in the District is giving and getting their fair share.”The speech emphasizes an optimistic administration and one in which the Mayor is expected to turn in her FY 2020 budget before the council this week, in addition to testifying in support of the budget as well.For the entire transcript please go to: https://mayor.dc.gov/release/mayor-bowser-delivers-2019-state-district-addressFor a look at the mayor’s 2015 State of the District address go to https://mayor.dc.gov/release/state-district-address.last_img read more

Nurses are the primary healthcare providers in the U.S. today, taking on more and more responsibilities within the hospital and often working long, irregular shifts. A physically demanding profession, nursing is consistently listed as one of the top 10 occupations for work-related musculoskeletal disorders, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. By 2010, it’s estimated that 40 percent of nurses will be 50 years of age or older, potentially putting them at even greater risk for injury.Recognizing the indisputable correlation between patient and nursing safety, hospitals are amping up initiatives to foster safer environments for staff and patients alike. A key contributor is the use of ergonomically designed products that address a variety of issues such as device maneuverability and patient handling.A 27-year veteran of the nursing profession, Pat Stark, RN, ICU charge nurse at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center, Browns Mills, NJ, remembers the days when lifting the head of a patient’s bed required manually turning a crank at the foot of the bed. And she remembers the back and shoulder injuries that often resulted. Today, the center uses Hill-Rom’s motorized Total Care line of beds, and the nurses couldn’t be happier, says Stark.“Our nurses absolutely adore these beds,” she said.Features such as turn assist, head of bed alarm and trending, max inflate, and the rotation, percussion and vibration modules are some of the reasons why. These features eliminate awkward patient handling and movement, which benefits the nurses as well as the patients. Stark said when the center made the change about nine years ago, they were determined to purchase a product that was the most beneficial for both the staff and the patient, and had a variety of surfaces that could be used throughout the hospital. She’s convinced safety and ergonomic features played a big part in the decision-making process. “The max inflate feature makes it much easier to pull up patients and the chair egress position is fantastic for post-op patients, allowing them to ambulate easier and sooner,” Stark said. “We can also do chest PT without external devices. All we do is set the percussion, vibration and the rotation and raise the siderails — the bed does the rest.” For sicker patients, such as open-heart patients who may have multiple drips or a balloon pump, the center relies on the TotalCare Sp02RT bed. Since these patients can’t increase their mobilization, the bed’s functions allow nurses to turn them and help increase their respiratory function, explains Stark. For extremely large patients — more than 400 pounds — the center has access to the TotalCare Bariatric Bed that features an extra-wide, 42-inch, three-layer surface for comfort and IntelliDrive power transport.Nurses at Main Line Health in suburban Philadelphia recommend “try before you buy” when purchasing new devices. Several years ago the hospitals learned an expensive lesson when they purchased tablet PCs for their patient care technicians (PCTs) to use when performing vital signs documentation. The devices, which looked great at first glance, turned out to be very heavy and awkward to use, resulting in neck and shoulder pain. The tablets are now gathering dust while the PCTs collect their information by hand and transfer it into the hospital’s clinical documentation system from desktop computers.As the result of their search for full-featured medication administration carts and computers on wheels that were smaller, lighter and easy to maneuver, Main Line Health went live four years ago with several of Infologix’s mobile computing workstations.“In the past, we had injuries that resulted from pushing heavy carts. We also need to take into consideration that the nurses on the floor are getting older,” said Kristy Thompson, clinical IS educator for Main Line Health. “When we evaluated the current market offerings, we liked the Infologix carts’ drawer size and wider base, which makes them easy to maneuver on floors,” said Nicole Talmadge-Kellet, PMP, IS application manager, Main Line Health. “However, some of the nurses tend to overfill the drawers, making the carts less easy to wield along the hospitals’ carpeted areas. The nurses also like that they can raise and lower the workstation and tilt the keyboard and monitor. There is a fairly large area between the monitor and keyboard where they can prepare meds or write notes, and there is a holder on the side of the cart for bar-code scanners.” Recognizing that technology can change fairly rapidly, the nurses at Main Line Health have created a wish list for their next mobile computing purchase. The list includes increased maneuverability, smaller drawer size with a more individualized medication compartment and a hydraulic lift for adjusting the height of the workstation.“This underscores the importance of real-life testing before you buy,” said Talmadge-Kellet. Just as important, is knowing exactly what you want and asking the right questions, she added. What MLH nurses really want, they say, is to test products backed by sophisticated design work and rigorous ergonomic research. Better Design Leads to Better OutcomesErgonomics in healthcare goes way beyond comfort. Features that address not only ease of operation, but also optimized functionality, add to a device’s success. This is especially evident in the OR.To help ease the hand fatigue many surgeons experience during electrosurgery procedures, MEGADYNE introduced a new line of disposable suction coagulators that boast a larger, ergonomic handle. Available in 8, 10 and 12 French sizes, the new line reportedly better enables the surgeon to correctly match the coagulator to the size of the patient’s anatomy and surgical procedure being performed. Available in both hand-switching and foot-controlled options, the coagulator is fully insulated to reduce the likelihood of injury to surrounding structures and tissue, and its integrated guard prevents user shocks. Similarly, Medtronic’s Straightshot M4 Microdebrider is an ergonomically designed powered handpiece for sinus, nasal and laryngeal surgery. Its sculpted shape reportedly accommodates multiple hand positions and provides ergonomic comfort for small- and large-handed surgeons. A 2006 Medical Device Excellence Award Silver Award winner, the Straightshot M4, said Medtronic, is designed to provide better, more comfortable access to sinus and airway anatomy, allowing surgeons to perform more precise, complete removal of obstructive or diseased tissue and help improve patient outcomes in chronic sinusitis and airway tumor surgery.

A widely accepted technique used during surgery to stage breast, melanoma, and other cancers involves the injection of a radiopharmaceutical near the tumor, which results in its accumulation in the local lymph nodes. Surgeons use a gamma probe to identify those specific lymph nodes to drain the tumor. These sentinel nodes are excised by the surgeon and analyzed by the pathologist for the presence of cancer. New wireless gamma and PET probes locate the sentinel lymph nodes or cancerous tissues that accumulate the radiopharmaceuticals. The new Node Seeker 900 wireless system includes wireless operation for convenience, a touchscreen control unit for ease-of-use, IV pole-mountable for portability, and an on-board isotope for fast quality control checks.
