Two doctors to face action for denial of ambulance

first_imgGopichand, a resident of the Sambhal district in Uttar Pradesh, had to carry his dead cousin home on his shoulders after a hospital in Behjoi denied him an ambulance last week. The incident would have remained unknown but for his heartbreaking pictures going viral, after which District Magistrate Anand Kumar Singh ordered action against the erring medical personnel. A probe conducted by Deputy Collector Preet Pal Singh found that two doctors and a pharmacist working with the government hospital in Behjoi showed carelessness and did not provide Mr. Gopichand an ambulance to transfer the body of his cousin to Sadatbadi, his village, which is 5 km away. Senior district officials told The Hindu that the incident was unfortunate, but it also revealed the lack of sufficient ambulances and hearse vans in every hospital. A hearse van was parked outside the Sambhal district hospital, 15 km away from the Behjoi hospital. “It was a complete nightmare at the hospital. My cousin, Surajpal, was a labourer who got seriously injured while working. He was declared dead by the doctors at the Behjoi hospital. Let alone an ambulance, the hospital authorities did not even care to provide me with a stretcher. They just asked me to take away the body,” Mr. Gopichand told The Hindu.‘Complete apathy’“I was alone at the time in the hospital. So, without the stretcher, I took the dead body out of the hospital and asked for the ambulance. But there was complete apathy again. So I carried him on my shoulders. Later, I somehow arranged for a motorcycle and took the body home,” he added. “I have directed the chief medical officer, Amita Singh, to take action against the doctors and the pharmacist,” Mr. Singh told the media, adding that he has asked for one more hearse van for the district.last_img read more

Michigan To Host Alabama Commit On Official Visit

(Photo by Gene Sweeney Jr/Getty Images)Although three-star cornerback Jahquez Robinson committed to Alabama earlier this week, it appears he’s not ready to sign just yet. With the Michigan Wolverines suddenly pursuing the Sandalwood product, a potential recruiting war could be brewing.Robinson has received scholarship offers from several prestigious programs, which includes LSU, Florida and Oklahoma. Nonetheless, he decided to give his commitment to the SEC powerhouse in the Crimson Tide.While Michigan could just concede to Alabama in these sweepstakes, it turns out that Jim Harbaugh and his coaching staff are intrigued enough with Robinson to offer him a scholarship as well. Clearly, the surprising news has thrown a wrench in the cornerback’s plans.Despite not knowing too much about the Wolverines, Robinson is fond of the offer. In fact, he’ll visit Ann Arbor while his recruitment window is still wide open.From Maize n Brew:“I have to get on a visit, but very excited to get up there,” he said. Some things Robinson said he will be looking for on his future visit include how the coaches coach their players, meeting coach Jim Harbaugh, getting to know Zordich more and seeing what Zordich expects out of his players.“I wouldn’t say a school can do anything, but if I feel the school is a better fit for me and benefits me more than (Alabama), that’s what will change my mind,” he said.Robinson is listed as the No. 40 cornerback in the 2020 class, per 247Sports.It’ll be interesting to see if Michigan can pry him away from Alabama, regardless of the Crimson Tide’s success with secondary players.Stay tuned.last_img read more

UNESCO DirectorGeneral deplores new press restrictions in Nepal

An ordinance issued on 9 October tightens previous controls ordered after the Government was dismissed in February and a state of emergency declared.At the time, media outlets were closed or taken over by the armed forces, critical reports were banned and journalists were arrested. “All of these acts represent attacks on the independence of the media, and therefore on democratic progress,” Mr. Matsuura pointed out today. “The new curbs on media rights contained in this ordinance would indicate that the situation is getting worse.”The UNESCO chief appealed to the Nepalese authorities to reconsider their action. “At a time when the planning of democratic elections has been announced in Nepal, legislation that justifies censorship and curtails the ability of media professionals to do their job can only appear to be incompatible with a free and open electoral process.”He said a reconsideration of the ordinance by Nepal would signal respect for free, pluralistic and independent media, which are indispensable conditions for democracy and good governance. read more

Apple announces The Beatles for iTunes

first_imgThere was a lot of speculation as to what the announcement from Apple would be today regarding iTunes. Those of you looking forward to a streaming music service will be very disappointed. As was suggested yesterday by a number of people, Apple thought this build up was worth it for managing to secure The Beatles back catalog for iTunes.All 13 studio albums are now available in remastered form, as well as the two-volume “Past Masters” compilation and the “Red” and “Blue” collections. Apple has also managed to get the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” concert film, thought to be an exclusive on the service.The individual songs are $1.29 each, albums $12.99 and double albums $19.99. There’s also the Beatles Box Set for $149 including all 13 albums, the collections, and the concert film. A quick calculation tells us that’s a saving of nearly $60 over buying everything separately.Read more at Apple.comlast_img read more

Latoll dAldabra un sanctuaire quasivierge peuplé de milliers de tortues géantes

first_imgL’atoll d’Aldabra, un sanctuaire quasi-vierge peuplé de milliers de tortues géantesL’atoll d’Aldabra, aux Seychelles, reste l’un des derniers sanctuaires quasi-vierges de la planète. Situé au beau milieu de l’océan Indien, il abrite notamment la plus importante population de tortues géantes au monde.Faisant partie des Seychelles, l’atoll d’Aldabra est formé de quatre îles principales de récif corallien. Elles sont séparées les unes des autres par des passes étroites et enferment un lagon peu profond, bordé d’une mangrove de palétuviers et de plages de fin sable blanc. À marée haute, l’eau turquoise permet de voir des raies, des requins et des tortues marines. À marée basse, de petites îles émergent dans le lagon, presque posées sur la mer.Mais aujourd’hui classé au Patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco, l’atoll d’Aldabra a bien failli disparaître dans les années 1970 pour laisser la place à une base militaire américaine. L’idée fut finalement abandonnée face aux protestations des défenseurs de la nature et des scientifiques. A l’heure actuelle, l’atoll abrite “plus de 400 espèces et sous-espèces endémiques (vertébrés, invertébrés et plantes)”. Parmi les 100.000 tortues géantes des Seychelles (les mâles peuvent atteindre 1,20m de long et peser jusqu’à 300 kg pour une durée de vie allant jusqu’à 250 ans) elles sont nombreuses à y trouver refuge. Un accès strictement encadré  C’est dans ce paradis terrestre que les scientifiques peuvent mener des études uniques, notamment sur les tortues. En effet, l’atoll d’Aldabra est préservé de toute influence humaine en raison de son isolement, des difficultés pour y accéder et de l’absence d’eau douce. Seule une quinzaine de personnes vit sur l’atoll : quatre scientifiques, quatre gardes, du personnel administratif, un cuisinier. Les visites touristiques sont strictement encadrées et seuls de petits groupes de 30 personnes maximum sont acceptés, encadrés par des gardes. Le droit d’entrée d’environ 100 euros par personne permet de financer la gestion de l’île. Citée par l’AFP, le Dr Jeanne Mortimer explique : “Aujourd’hui il ne reste que deux endroits sur terre où vit une importante population de tortues géantes : Aldabra et les Galapagos, mais les deux espèces sont différentes”. Elle indique également : “l’écosystème d’Aldabra permet aux scientifiques de comprendre comment vivaient les tortues au moment où elles étaient tout en haut de la chaîne alimentaire”, sans prédateur carnivore. Selon Frauke Dogley, directrice générale de la Seychelles Island Foundation (SIF) qui gère l’atoll et la Vallée de Mai (également classés par l’Unesco), la population des tortues d’Aldabra est stable depuis le début des années 1980. Néanmoins, l’espèce reste classée comme “vulnérable”.Des Tortues vertes en augmentationÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Mais Aldabra est également un lieu de reproduction et de ponte privilégié pour les Tortues vertes, une espèce marine. “En février, c’est le pic de la saison de reproduction, tous les jours on enregistre de 30 à 40 traces de tortues vertes qui montent pondre leurs œufs [ … ] sur l’île de Picard”, une des quatre îles de l’atoll, indique Janske Van de Crommercker, coordinatrice scientifique à la SIF. Alors que cette espèce est gravement menacée de disparition, “la population de tortues de mer est en augmentation, tous les ans on enregistre plus de traces de femelles”, se félicite la chercheuse toujours citée par l’AFP. Cela est notamment dû à l’arrêt de la pêche à la tortue. Grâce à un programme de surveillance par satellite et par le biais d’un émetteur implanté sur six Tortues vertes, les scientifiques ont pu constater qu’après avoir pondu, ces tortues se dispersaient un peu partout dans l’océan Indien. Certaines “partent vers le continent africain, au Kenya, une autre est passée aux Comores et se trouve actuellement à Madagascar et une autre se trouve du côté d’Arros”, une autre île des Seychelles, conclut Mme Van de Crommercker. Mais les spécialistes continuent de les garder à l’oeil. Le 7 avril 2013 à 12:03 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Alaska delegates contemplate the afterBern

first_imgOne Sanders fan stated his position in lights on his back. (Photos: Liz Ruskin/Alaska Public Media)Hours before the official start of the Democratic National Convention, Sen. Bernie Sanders faced a ballroom full of his delegates and tried to rally them to support Hillary Clinton. A few of Sanders’ Alaska delegates later spoke of the moment with a mix of sadness and pragmatism.Listen nowHere’s how it sounded when Sanders told the crowd what they did NOT want to hear:                                                                               “We’ve got to defeat Donald Trump,” he began, to general cheering, “and we’ve got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.”That’s when the booing started.“I think it was really telling that a huge majority of the delegates in there were extremelyOlivia Garrett, a Sanders delegate from Fairbanks.upset,” says Olivia Garrett. She certainly understands it. The 22-year-old, who is from Soldotna and now lives in Fairbanks, just might have been the first Alaskan to “feel the Bern.”“I worked for the Bernie campaign. And I’m just crushed that he didn’t get the nomination. I mean, I’ve put my heart and soul into this,” she said. “I’ve been a Bernie fan since I was 13 years old.”Garrett says the Sanders supporters need time to grieve. Alaska Democrats gave Sanders more than 80 percent of the vote in their March caucus, so he won 13 of Alaska’s 20 delegates. Garrett says some of the Alaska delegates remain in the “Bernie or Bust” camp, and she tries to respect that. But Garrett agrees with Sanders, that it’s time to back Clinton to defeat Trump.“What I’ve never understood is the people who intend to vote third-party, thinking that they will somehow pull off a third-party win,” she said, “because it just cannot be done, and this is not the time to risk it.”Genevive Mina, president of the UAA College Democrats, says she was moved when she heard Sanders recite his policy successes.“Talking about a $15 minimum wage, talking about trying to get single-payer healthcare, talking about fighting climate change, and recognizing this is after he’s gotten these same policies into the platform,” she said. “It’s really compelling to see what he actually has accomplished in his campaign, despite the fact that he hasn’t achieved enough delegates.”Sidell and Genevive Mina chat after the Sanders speech.Mina says she’ll vote for Clinton in November, but she’ll only campaign for state and local races. She says Alaska’s three electoral votes will likely go to Trump, and she plans to devote herself to down-ballot candidates, which she says are her priority anyway.Nineteen-year-old Nathan Sidell of Palmer says he’s moving on, too, hoping to not only defeat Trump but also pull the Democratic Party to the left.“I think the best thing we can do, as Sanders supporters, is really hold the fire to their feet.Nathan Sidell of Palmer, with one of the Robin Hood caps Sanders supporters distributed.Really pushing for our values. Really making sure that we’re not silenced,” he said.Sidell wore a stars and stripes kuspuk on the convention’s first day and held a green felt Robin Hood hat. The caps were handed to Sanders supporters on their way into his speech – symbol of Sanders’ position on taxing the rich, and a tangible souvenir of a campaign Sidell once hoped would end at the White House.last_img read more

Image courtesy of Kirsty Challen, B.Sc., MBCHB, MRES, Ph.D., Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, United Kingdom.July 18, 2018 — A new study finds The Pediatric NEXUS Head Computed Tomography (CT) Decision Instrument (DI) reliably identifies blunt trauma patients who require head CT imaging, and could significantly reduce the use of CT imaging. The findings of the study are published in the July issue of Academic Emergency Medicine, a journal of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM).The lead author is Malkeet Gupta, M.D., MS, assistant clinical professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).The study by Gupta et al, validates the NEXUS Head Computed Tomography Decision Instrument in pediatric patients and provides clinicians with a highly sensitive tool to guide selective imaging decisions in blunt head injury patients. Unlike other decision instruments, the decision instrument asks providers to use clinical judgment to identify low-risk patients who need no imaging and then to apply the decision instrument to further reduce the planned imaging. This “judgment first, decision instrument second” approach may decrease head CT utilization in low-risk pediatric populations by up to 34 percent.The findings of the study are discussed with Gupta in the featured episode of SGEM Hop (Skeptics Guide to EM Hot Off the Press).Joshua S. Broder, M.D., director of the Emergency Medicine Residency Program and vice-chief for education in the Division of Emergency Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine, commented on the study, “This study provides another tool in our armamentarium for assessing pediatric patients with traumatic head injury and has the potential to reduce CT utilization. Some elements of the decision instrument are poorly predictive; scalp hematoma alone, for example, does not indicate substantial risk of injury. Changes in nomenclature could help. For example, the term ‘high-risk’ may not accurately describe patients who fail one or more measures on the instrument, as the rate of significant head injury in this group was approximately 7 percent. ‘Non-low risk’ or ‘intermediate risk’ may more accurately describe some patients who might be safely observed without imaging.”For more information: www.onlinelibrary.wiley.comReferenceGupta M., Mower W.R., Rodriguez R.M., Hendey G.W. “Validation of the Pediatric NEXUS II Head Computed Tomography Decision Instrument for Selective Imaging of Pediatric Patients with Blunt Head Trauma.” Academic Emergency Medicine, April 17, 2018.

Action not words on NHS

first_imgBy Constantinos Psillides“The government responds with actions, not words,” health minister Philipos Patsalis said on Tuesday, reacting to criticism from MPs over the delays in introducing the National Health Scheme (NHS).MPs of the House Health Committee accused the government of derailing the NHS and “selling out public health to insurance companies.”“The government is working towards improving the legal framework governing public health, introducing digitisation, changing the way medicine is made available and restructuring all public hospitals with the goal of introducing a comprehensive NHS. We know the health sector’s issues firsthand. Public health doesn’t belong to anyone but the people and we should move on from petty politics. It is a matter that concerns everyone and we should all act in all necessary seriousness,” the minister said.Patsalis also informed MPs of the government’s intention to issue coupons to patients to use in the private sector who currently wait for months or years before they can be seen by a doctor in a public hospital.“We are discussing a variety of options. One is outright buy the services of doctors in the private sector.Another is issuing coupons for patients, so as to somewhat reduce the cost of visiting a doctor or undergoing a medical procedure in the private sector.”Main opposition party AKEL’s MP Irene Charalambidou attacked Patsalis, accusing him and the government of turning public hospitals into chaos, adding that the NHS is completely derailed and that “the government’s only concern is how to sell public health to insurance companies.”Charalambidou was referring to the government’s decision to push for a single-payer scheme, while at the same time leaving room to insurance companies to compete with the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO), a government set-up service tasked with dealing with reimbursing medical expenses for those insured.Last month, Patsalis said the NHS will not be implemented this year and the best case scenario is September 2016.Putting in place a new and efficient health system is part of the island’s €10bn bailout plan; the first phase of the NHS was to be implemented by July 2015, the second in January 2016 and the third in July 2016.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
