first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Defending ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup champions, Clarendon College, are clinging to their cup by the slimmest of threads, knowing that only a victory over Rusea’s High in this afternoon’s quarter-final match at the Juici Field is good enough to save their season. Only four of six matches are scheduled today with the other two, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) versus The Mannings School at STETHS and Vere Technical up against Marcus Garvey at Wembley set for tomorrow. The ‘Russians’ are on four points from one victory and a draw in this round of the competition and are matched by Dinthill Technical on points, but boast a one-goal difference  to lead Group S. Clarendon College sit on three points and cannot lose today if they are to keep their title, at least through to the semi-finals. In the group’s other fixture, Dinthill will need to avoid defeat to Glenmuir and hope that Rusea’s draw with Clarendon College, if they are to advance ahead of all the others. It’s all a tricky situation and not dissimilar to what obtains in the other three groups. It is all even in Group P, with Manchester High, Lacovia High, St James High and Paul Bogle High on three points apiece. The separation, however, should come after St James host Manchester at Jarrett Park at 3:00 p.m. and Lacovia welcome Paul Bogle to Santa Cruz (at STETHS) in the opening game of a double header. Group Q is equally poised, with the impressive Petersfield High taking aim at Lennon at Frome Sports Complex, where a win and a draw or loss for either team in the Port Antonio vs Seaforth clash at Carder Park, will see them claim a spot in the last four. STETHS will tackle Mannings at 3:00 pm in their Group R encounter tomorrow, while Vere Technical could still advance with a win over Marcus Garvey and enough goals to add to a loss for STETHS. “We are a confident set of people at STETHS, the players have been through a lot so far this year but are ready,” said STETHS coach Omar Wedderburn. “It continues to be work in progress and we look forward to the Mannings game, because as I told my players, each team is in it to win it. We must want it more than the others,” Wedderburn said firmly. Today’s matches Lacovia vs Paul Bogle at STETHS St James vs Manchester at Jarrett Park Petersfield vs Lennon at Frome Sports Complex Port Antonio v Seaforth at Carder Park Clarendon College vs Rusea’s at Juice Field Glenmuir vs Dinthill at Juice Field All matches start at 3:00 pm, except the Juice Field double-header, which begins at 1:00 p.m.last_img read more

first_img– Advertisement -Mayoral candidate Bruce Lantz and incumbent mayor Jim Eglinski both painted very different pictures of the city’s future. Lantz pressed for a freeze on capital project spending, while Eglinski insisted that the city must continue to upgrade its services, including the new fire hall, to preemptively address the needs of a rapidly expanding population. However, both candidates did agree on one thing: high taxes are putting a strain on businesses and fixed income earners, such as seniors. Lantz reiterated his platform promise to put a stop to tax increases and halt the introduction of new capital projects for the city. [asset|aid=567|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=moosefm_news-20081105T0333.mp3]Incumbent Mayor Eglinski attributed the higher taxes to higher assessment rates, but vowed to review the assessment process and work with residents and businesses to find a solution to the issue. [asset|aid=565|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=moosefm_news-20081105T0329.mp3]Taxes have been a hot-button issue in this election after last year’s assessments saw many residents and businesses owners face a dramatic increase in the cost of their property taxes.

first_imgLANCASTER – News stories on the second anniversary of an unsolved hit-and-run death of a young woman who had stopped to aid a stray cat have opened a new lead for the California Highway Patrol. CHP investigators said a tip from an anonymous caller led them to “someone of interest” in the death of Jannet Lynn Hair, a 21-year-old student at Antelope Valley College. “I think it was a combination of things. This person had some knowledge. When the stories came out, they came forward with it,” Officer Perry Heidebrink said. As the two-year anniversary approached, Capt. Doug Rich, commander of the Antelope Valley station, renewed the call for anyone with information to contact the CHP. Hair had been studying for her certificate in American Sign Language because she wanted to help deaf children and had even been considering fostering a deaf child after she finished school. She was a humanitarian and animal lover. She had three dogs, two cats, and a potbellied pig, all of which had been given to her by friends who knew she could not turn away an injured or abandoned animal. Hair graduated in 2001 from Littlerock High School. Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Hair was run down about 9 p.m. Nov. 30, 2003, after stopping her sport utility vehicle on Avenue O near 155th Street East to rescue a stray cat from the middle of the road. A vehicle coming the other way struck her – and the cat – and kept going. There were no witnesses to the collision because of the time of night and the dark, remote location: a two-lane road at the edge of Lake Los Angeles. CHP officers said they received several 911 calls minutes later reporting a pedestrian having been hit and killed. Hair was dead when rescue crews arrived. Pieces of the vehicle that struck Hair were left behind, leading investigators to believe she was struck by a 1994 to 1997 GMC or Chevrolet full-size pickup truck or SUV. CHP investigators inspected nearly 2,000 pickup trucks and SUVs similar to the one that hit Hair, but found none connected to the case. last_img read more

first_imgThe grants will help trained nurses to upgrade their nursing education.(Image: NAACP)Khanyi MagubaneThe training of nurses in South Africa has been boosted by a cash injection of R70-million (US$7-million) over the next four years.Atlantic Philanthropies, an international organisation aimed at improving nursing education and the quality of healthcare delivery in South Africa, will be offering the bursaries to qualified nurses who want to pursue further studies in the field and go into areas of specialisation.Health minister Barbara Hogan says the programme will bring back much needed confidence in the sector. “Through this programme, South African nursing will compete internationally, attract the best candidates for the profession and encourage nurses who have moved abroad to return to the country.”“The Atlantic Philanthropies are fully committed to ensuring that nurses in South Africa get the resources they need and the respect they deserve,” says Makhosazana Xaba, a trained nurse and the programme executive of the Atlantic Philanthropies.Atlantic Philanthropies is focussed on improving the health of South Africans by increasing the number of health professionals who can deliver quality and professional healthcare.Seven universities across the country will benefit from this scheme.From 2009 to the end of 2012, the universities will use the bursaries to improve and transform nursing education in several key areas including research, clinical care, maternal, child health, community health, and critical care nursing.The four institutions receiving major grants of between R16-and R17-million ($1.6-million and 1.7-million) are the Departments of Nursing at the Tshwane University of Technology, the University of Fort Hare, the University of the Free State, and the University of the Western Cape.Smaller grants of R1-million ($100 000) will be awarded to three other universities. These are; the North West University, Stellenbosch University and the University of KwaZulu-Natal.All seven grants will be issued through the organisation University Based Nursing Education South Africa’s programme.The funds will then be managed by Inyathelo-The South African Institute for Nursing Advancement.Inyathelo is a non-profit trust that promotes philanthropy and strengthens the NGO sector and institutions such as universities.Growing nursing educationThe Adelaide Tambo School of Nursing Science at the Tshwane University of Technology will use the money for nursing services to the community of Shoshanguve, a township east of Pretoria.Extension 12 and 13 of the township will specifically benefit by means of mobile clinics offering primary health care, cancer and palliative care, management of lifestyle diseases, and early childhood development.Meanwhile, the Department of Nursing Sciences at the University of Fort Hare will introduce new doctoral and research masters programmes to the post-graduate degrees offered at the university.In conjunction with the grant, Fort Hare will also commit an additional R40-million ($400 000) of its own to build a centre of nursing excellence, designed to develop post-graduate programmes.The school of nursing at the University of the Free State will establish a unique Virtual Health Teaching and Learning facility. This will provide hands-on clinical training for students, and volunteers from the local community, to play the roles of people with specific illnesses and disorders.The university will also use part of the grant to establish a new unit for continued professional and research capacity development.The School of Nursing at the University of the Western Cape plans to create a centre for teaching and learning, with the aim of increasing research capacity and to provide academic support for postgraduate students.      Providing networks for South African nursesNursing is one of South Africa’s most prominent professions within the medical sector. There are a number of established organisations, which cater to the needs of nurses in the country.The South African Nursing Council (SANC) is one of South Africa’s leading nursing organisations.It was established to monitor nursing and midwifery practice based on criteria set by the council; to formulate and to ensure the implementation of nursing and midwifery legislation and policies.The objectives of SANC include promoting health standards for South Africans, controlling and exercising authority in respect of all matters affecting the education and training of registered nurses, midwives, and enrolled nurses, acting as a liaison between the education and training institutions and the working environment of nurses as well as advising the minister of health on matters falling within the scope of the Nursing Act.The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) is also an organisation which works within the areas of advocacy and promoting the training of nurses at the highest standard.Denosa currently represents 65 000 nurses and nursing staff in both the public and private sector. The organisation is very instrumental in speaking out on issues affecting nurses.It regularly addresses government on issues of nurses’ salaries, the working condition of their members and the speedy appointment of nurses at health institutions.Other organisations operating in South Africa include the Association of Nursing Agencies of South Africa (ANASA).ANASA was establishment to represent nursing agencies in November 1994. It has now grown to represent over 50 agencies.Nursing agencies provide specialised services including private nurses who work from patients’ homes, nurses working in retirement homes, sport events and private education facilities.Related articlesUK honours top SA nurseHealthcare in South AfricaMobile Hiv Testing in KZNSomalia: first doctors in 18 yearsUseful LinksAtlantic PhilanthropiesNursing services of South AfricaDenosaAnasalast_img read more

first_imgBetween 2005 and 2010, approximately one service member died every 36 hours, not by Afghanistan or Iraq insurgents, not from a result of a training exercise or automobile accident–but from suicide.In 2009 alone, 160 active duty military personnel took their lives, making suicide the third leading cause of death among the Army population (Army HP/RR/SP Report, 2010).With the increase in suicides the Army has designated the month of September as Suicide Prevention Month and joins the nation in observing National Suicide Prevention Week, Sept. 10-14, and World Suicide Prevention Day, Sept. 10.As more troops return home from deployment, the risk of suicide may grow. It is important that families of these service members become aware of the issue and learn to identify potential risk factors and warning signs associated with suicide.Understanding Suicide PreventionSeveral factors may influence a service member to attempt or commit suicide. As a military caregiver be aware of risk factors associated with suicide.Work-related problemsHistory of depression or other psychological issuesFamily history of suicide or suicide attemptsSerious medical problems or physical illnessRecent disciplinary or legal actionsSignificant loss (death of loved one or fellow service member within unit)Drug or alcohol abuseViolence in the home or social environmentUnsuccessful relationships or relationship strainExcessive debt and other financial problemsWarning Signs of Potential SuicideIf you notice significant changes in your warrior’s demeanor since he or she has returned home from war, they may be exhibiting signs of potential suicide. The following warning signs may indicate that your service member is suicidal:Changes in eating, sleeping habits, or personal hygieneTalking or hinting about hurting himself or herselfExpressing a strong desire to kill someone elseIndicating he or she will be better off deadObsession with death (for example, in music, poetry, artwork, letters)Changes in mood and behavior  (for example, depression, irritability, rage, anger)Increased alcohol and/or drug use or abuseIsolation and withdrawal from social situationGiving away possessionsUpdating will or otherwise finalizing personal affairsProblem with spouse or partnerSudden or impulsive purchase of a firearm or other weaponsAdditional ResourcesIf your service member is experiencing thoughts or symptoms of suicide–do not hesitate, call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) for immediate assistance. The Veterans Crisis Line and website is available for both veterans and active duty service members.For more information on suicide within the military, visit the Army Suicide Prevention Program. The program offers a variety of information and resources relating to suicide in order to improve readiness for service members and their families.As a caregiver, be aware of the Applied Suicide Intervention Training (ASIST). ASIST is a workshop for caregivers who want to feel confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

Stuttgart: Russia grabbed the men’s team gold at the World gymnastics championships here after China’s Sun Wei fell off the high bars in the closing routines on Wednesday.Russia finished with a huge score of 261.726, with China second on 260.729. Japan were third, just over 2.5 behind China but more than 3.5 ahead of the United States. Great Britain was fifth. It was Russia’s first world team title, although the Soviet Union collected the last of its eight golds in 1991.Less than a year before the Tokyo Olympics, Russia also took revenge for a narrow defeat at last year’s worlds in Doha, when China won by 0.049 of a point.China, Russia and Japan had exchanged the lead as the teams rotated through the six different elements.China seemed to have seized control on their penultimate challenge, the parallel bars.Their third and final man on the apparatus, Zou Jingyuan, delivered an imaginative and technically perfect routine to score a huge 16.383, by far the highest mark by any man in any discipline all afternoon. The second best was the 15.3 by Russian Nikita Nagornyy, also on the bars.Zou’s score also gave his team a total of 45.141 on the bars, the most by any of the eight finalists in any discipline.That meant China led Russia by 1.4 points going into the last routine, when the two nations met at the high bars for a final showdown.Japan meanwhile finished with the floor exercises and a series of errors ended their chances of finishing in the top two.As China went first, Sun immediately handed the initiative back to Russia as he slid off the bar to finish with just 12.766.Even though the last Chinese competitor Lin Chaopan scored 14.5, the final Russian Nagornyy held his nerve and scored 14.46.As the top two teams embraced, Sun turned away and covered his face with his hands. last_img read more
