first_imgblackred/iStock(DALLAS) — An American Airlines flight bound for Dallas from Chicago was forced to make an emergency landing after a passenger tried to open the emergency exit door in the middle of the journey.American Airlines Flight 2300 left O’Hare International Airport Tuesday and was less than 45 minutes into its flight to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport when the plane had to be diverted to St. Louis, Missouri, because of the unidentified “unruly passenger,” the airline said in a statement Wednesday.“He started coming at the door,” passenger Jonathan Cowan told ABC News. “He just had these big, black gazing eyes. There was really no emotion. … He had all the door levers being flipped up. He was just going at it, attacking it.”The door, however, could not be opened. Airline experts said that emergency doors are kept sealed during flight by cabin pressure inside the plane.Others on board were quick to subdue the unruly passenger.“I got him to the ground, pinned him,” Cowan said. “A couple other gentlemen got on back of me and helped pin him down.”Alexa Campanile, a passenger who shared a video with ABC News, said that after the man attempted to open the exit door, passengers were the first to take action and then flight attendants assisted.“The aircraft landed safely and law enforcement met it upon arrival,” American Airlines said in its statement. “There were no injuries to passengers or crew members. We thank our crew members for their quick action to ensure the safety of everyone on board and providing excellent care to our customers during a difficult situation.”The unruly man was tied up and held down until the plane landed in St. Louis. Video shared by passengers showed the unidentified man being detained by authorities and later removed from the aircraft in St. Louis.Officials at St. Louis Lambert International Airport did not comment on the incident and referred ABC News to federal authorities.An FBI spokesman in St. Louis said that the agency had coordinated with airport police during the incident and that no one had been arrested. The man was released without charges.“There was no nexus to terrorism or criminal activity,” the spokesman told ABC News on Wednesday.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgCSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced the successful implementation of the first phase of Fletcher Allen Health Care’s comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) system, PRISM (Patient Record and Information Systems Management), after a 15-month planning and implementation period. PRISM is now operational in the hospital’s inpatient areas as well as the Emergency Department, Walk-In Care Center, and inpatient pharmacy. Fletcher Allen is now positioned to meet the regulatory requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. Under ARRA, hospitals will receive monetary incentives if they demonstrate “meaningful use” of EHRs by 2011.(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090422/CSCLOGO(link is external))Benefits of the new EHR system from Epic include ease of viewing all patient information in one place; accessibility of patient information from remote locations; ability for multiple parties to concurrently check patient information; and instant access to medical orders. To date, Fletcher Allen’s providers are entering 92 percent of all medical orders electronically (and 96 percent of all medication orders), reducing the turnaround time for receiving medications and tests, and enhancing the accuracy of clinical documentation.”We adopted an electronic health record to improve safety and quality of care for patients,” said Sandra Dalton, senior vice president of Patient Care Services and chief nursing officer at Fletcher Allen. “With CSC’s healthcare expertise and track record in clinical systems implementation and improvement, we have succeeded in completing the first phase of our project on budget, on schedule and in just 15 months. We hope other hospitals are encouraged by our achievement.””The success of this project proves that EHRs can be implemented quickly and effectively,” said Deward Watts, president of CSC’s Healthcare Group. “The commitment of Fletcher Allen’s senior executive team, including the medical staff leadership, was crucial to its completion. When combined with CSC’s clinical and technical expertise, it enabled Fletcher Allen to rapidly move from a manual process to an electronic system where nearly all medical orders are being entered automatically.”As part of the project, CSC provided clinical transformation consulting services and IT design, building, testing and activation support. When completed, PRISM will be operational throughout Fletcher Allen including the hospital’s more than 30 facilities in Vermont as well as affiliated medical practices, which include approximately 750 physicians. CSC continues to offer technology support services to Fletcher Allen as the hospital prepares to conduct phases two and three of the project, which are slated to be complete by the end of 2010.CSC’s Healthcare Group, which serves healthcare providers, health plans, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, and allied industries around the world, is a global leader in transforming the healthcare industry through the effective use of information to improve healthcare outcomes, decision-making and operating efficiency.About Fletcher AllenFletcher Allen Health Care, together with our partners at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, is Vermont’s academic medical center.

first_img‘Best Scientists and Best Minds’ at Oil Companies Failed To Innovate When They Had the Chance FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享By Matt Smith for Vice News:Around the same time NASA was planning its moon missions, US oil companies were working on technologies that could have reduced greenhouse gas emissions.Scientists and engineers had submitted patents for techniques to peel carbon dioxide out of fossil fuel exhaust, boost engine efficiencies, and produce electricity from fuel cells, according to industry documents released Thursday. They also pondered ways of offsetting the expected effects of increased carbon dioxide levels by pouring sulfur particles into the air to reflect solar energy back into space, or manipulating the weather to control smog.But the industry ultimately settled on raising doubts about whether any effort to rein in carbon emissions was needed to head off the threat of global warming, according to the researchers who have collected those records.“Faced with the knowledge of climate change and climate risks, particularly by the latter part of the 1960s, the oil companies had a choice,” said Carroll Muffett, president of the Washington-based Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL). “They could invest in responding to and reducing that risk, or they could invest and continue to exploit oil and to look for ways to explain away climate change and explain away climate risk. Our research strongly suggests they chose that second path.”…The CIEL documents could spell trouble for other companies, said Tom Sanzillo, finance director at the Cleveland-based Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).“There is a clear potential — I would say a high likelihood — of multiple levels of litigation against oil companies,” said Sanzillo, the former chief of the New York state pension fund. Those could include private lawsuits as well as government actions; there’s also the prospect of a revolt by stockholders who find the company facing unexpected liabilities or a congressional investigation.“This looks like it’s pretty serious, and it just seems to get worse,” he said.CIEL’s previous release revealed industry studies from the 1950s and ’60s that identified the burning of fossil fuels as a contributor to the rise of carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere. A 1968 study produced for the API warned that rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere “may be the cause of serious world-wide environmental changes.”But around the same time, oil companies began promoting alternative theories for climate change that scientists had discounted, such as changes in the sun’s intensity or the orbit of the Earth. A 1968 paper co-sponsored by Gulf Oil declared that cyclical changes in the Earth’s axis “must be recognized as the number-one contender in the climatic sweepstakes.”“They resurrected the theory of astronomical or solar-driven climate change that had been moribund for years,” Muffett said. “Industry-funded research resurrected it, and it’s become a go-to argument for climate denialists even to this day.”Sanzillo said the oil companies had “the best scientists and the best minds,” and may have been far more aware of the risks than the nascent environmental movement in the 1960s and ’70s. But that means they “bear a certain responsibility,” he added.“It’s a shame that many of the technological innovations that they were developing didn’t come to fruition,” he said. “The oil companies, as a research entity, are probably some of the best minds in the world on energy, and it’s unfortunate that they’ve not helped to develop real solutions over the decades. That’s what society was looking to them for.”Full article: https://news.vice.com/article/the-oil-industry-sought-patents-for-low-carbon-technologies-decades-ago-then-abandoned-themlast_img read more

first_imgBy Diálogo October 09, 2020 The United States on September 21 slapped new sanctions against the Iranian Ministry of Defense and Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro for his role in supporting the Tehran regime’s weapons program.“Our actions today are a warning that should be heard worldwide: No matter who you are, if you violate the U.N. arms embargo on Iran, you risk sanctions,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at a news conference announcing the restoration of sanctions on Iran.The Maduro regime denounced the sanctions and said they would fail to prevent both countries from maintaining free economic and commercial relations.“Venezuela rejects and denounces before the international community a new aggression on the part of the U.S. government, which announced, without any basis whatsoever, alleged unilateral sanctions […] as part of a sustained campaign of aggressions against […] Iran [and] Venezuela,” the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry said in a statement.Sanctions against Maduro, which were not detailed, come at a time when Venezuela’s ties to Iran have been strengthening and are suspected of extending to the military sector.In mid-August, Colombian President Iván Duque, relying on international intelligence, accused Maduro of looking into buying medium and long-range missiles from Iran. “The information is that [the missiles] still haven’t arrived, but there are instructions from [Venezuela’s Defense Minister Vladimir] Padrino,” Duque said at a virtual event.Maduro mocked the claim during a broadcast, and said that buying missiles from Iran would be “a good idea […] given the great relations we have with Iran.”The Tehran regime has been coming to the rescue of the oil-starved country delivering 1.5 million barrels of fuel to Venezuela in May. In late April, Iran flew in components, technicians, and equipment through Iranian state-owned and U.S.-sanctioned Mahan Air to help resume production at Venezuelan refineries.More recently, relations have extended to the retail grocery industry with the opening in Caracas of a supermarket by an Iranian military-owned conglomerate with ties to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, according to the Wall Street Journal.The new sanctions, which targeted 27 Iranian entities and people in the nuclear, missile, and conventional arms sector, were “futile” the Iranian Defense Ministry said in a statement.The U.S. government is imposing sanctions against the Iranian Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics, its Defense Industries Organization, senior officials of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as well as key producers and suppliers of military-grade, dual-use goods, for Iran’s ballistic missile program.“The efforts today are to continue to reduce that risk that they [Iran] will have the wealth and resources to foment terror throughout the region and indeed throughout the world,” Pompeo said.last_img read more

Meet the Court: Justice Barbara Pariente April 15, 2002 Jennifer Krell Davis Regular News Meet the Court: Justice Barbara Pariente [Editor’s Note: This is the fifth installment in a series of brief profiles on the justices of the Florida Supreme Court as produced by the Bar’s Public Information and Bar Services Department. These profiles serve to let Bar members and others get to know each justice as an individual.] Bar Public Information CoordinatorAlthough becoming a judge wasn’t her initial aspiration, Justice Barbara J. Pariente is focused on being a jurist committed to the needs of children and the legal profession.Justice Pariente has long been concerned about the ways children are affected by the legal system and currently serves as liaison to the Supreme Court’s Family Court Steering Committee. She also participates as a faculty member on the court’s Justice Teaching Institute and serves as a member of The Florida Bar’s Commission on the Legal Needs of Children.Pariente passionately “wants to take steps to ensure our legal system adequately addresses the needs and interests of children.” Children’s needs must be addressed “as early as possible” or those problems have the potential to escalate, she cautioned. “The focus should not be counting cases, but making sure the case counts.”Although deciding issues ranging from capital murder to family law is demanding, Pariente said she truly enjoys coming to work at a court with such a collegial group of justices.“We always take our job seriously, but try not to take ourselves too seriously,” she said.Pariente also values the work of the court’s staff, saying gratefully, “We get excellent information.”Another network of support for the justice is her family, which she calls her main passion. Her husband, Fourth District Court of Appeal Judge Fred Hazouri, provides her with both emotional and mental support.“He has had to make a great sacrifice [with us living in different parts of the state], and I probably don’t adequately express how much I appreciate that sacrifice,” Pariente said. “And, on top of that, his intelligence and common sense and his own sense of integrity and professionalism are traits I have always tried to emulate.”She counts herself blessed to be the mother of three and grandmother of six, one of whom was born this past February.“My grandchildren are a never-ending source of wonder and delight,” she said with a smile.Pariente’s family was an important factor in initially deciding whether to apply for a vacancy on the Supreme Court.“It seemed that at that point in my life things were coming together that made it the right time for me to apply,” she said. “My youngest son was in college, there were no women sitting on the court at that point, and it seemed like the opportunity of a lifetime to at least aspire to.”Pariente also held herself to the standards to which she had held others when sitting on a judicial nominating commission.“I was mindful that, to be a good judge, it was important to have a certain amount of life experience and professional experience, and I certainly followed that myself,” she said.Pariente began her distinguished career at George Washington University Law School, where professors encouraged her to challenge herself and take on internships. She spent several summers working for the Public Defender’s Office in Washington and for a legal services office doing landlord-tenant cases. Pariente said law schools should stress internships and mentoring as ways to help students learn how to become better lawyers and how to build good client relationships.Communication with clients and advocacy for children in the legal system are areas in which Pariente thinks lawyers should receive a greater amount of training.“I would hope that law schools will consider courses that embrace interdisciplinary approaches to those areas of law that really demand it, such as family law and similar areas,” Pariente said. “In my view, to best represent a child or a parent, it is important for an attorney to recognize underlying issues, such as learning problems, substance abuse, or mental illness.”Justice Pariente said she is focused on working to make the legal system meet the demands of society for all its citizens. read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Former Jets legend Joe Namath estimates that he suffered five concussions in his career. Decades later, another Jets great, Curtis Martin, remembers one particularly devastating hit that had him so dazed that he walked into the wrong huddle. Islanders hero Bob Nystrom said he suffered six concussions, including one that had the newlywed briefly forgetting his wife’s name.These New York sports legends and others gathered at NYIT-Old Westbury this week to bring attention to the massive scale of head injuries in sports as part of the annual Head Injury Awareness Celebrity Sports Forum organized by the Hauppauge-based Head Injury Association.The event, which coincided with Brain Injury Awareness Month, drew a large crowd that included high school coaches and various professionals.Namath and his fellow athletes were part of a panel using their celebrity status to highlight the need for more research and education on concussions. Experts were also on hand to discuss new treatment options, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, also known as HBOT, which is commonly associated with healing wounds.“We need to discover more about our brains, we need to find out how to heal them,” Namath told the crowd. “So, let’s stay after that. Let’s stay strong and continue the efforts to healing the brain once it’s been injured.”Namath is doing more than just lending his voice. He has also attached his name to the Jupiter, Fl.,-based Joe Namath Neurological Research Center, which has been experimenting with hyperbaric oxygen therapy for brain injuries.Namath has completed 120 so-called “dives” in the chamber, though he joked that the first two times he was ensconced in the tube-like machine were unsettling.Dr. Barry Miskin, co-medical director at the research center, presented scans of Namath’s brain over the course of treatment that indicated improvements.“Hyperbaric oxygen could be a really good treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury,” Miskin told the audience. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 2.8 million in 2013 were either hospitalized, visited an emergency room or died in the US from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the treatment for 14 ailments, though concussions are not on the list, which prohibits insurance companies from providing coverage for the treatment.“Ultimate end game is to have the drug of oxygen approved,” added Miskin.Other professionals discussed the misconceptions about concussion treatment, such as the long-held belief that patients should spend the first few days after suffering a brain injury resting in a dark room.New research has indicated that light exercise is the best way to treat concussed patients, especially in young people who are generally more active. But people with post-concussion syndrome may require more advanced treatment.“We recognize that every concussion is unique,” said Hallie Zwibel, director of sports medicine at NYIT.There was a consensus among the athletes and health professionals that concussion awareness has increased exponentially over the last few decades, though they acknowledged it was important to continue educating parents, young athletes, and coaches.“When I was in medical school, we may have mentioned two minutes of it,” said Jerry Balentine, vice president for Medical Affairs and Global Health at NYIT.Martin, who played 11 season in the NFL, retired in 2006. Back when he was playing, he said, exiting the game for a concussion “was a joke.”In the decade since, the NFL, which has been criticized for its response to concussions and resulting brain injuries in retired players, announced prior to last season that it would invest $100 million to support independent medical research on concussions. Current rules establish that players who appear dazed undergo so-called “concussion protocol” before they’re cleared to play.As treatment options go, HBOT took center stage at this week’s forum, largely due to Namath’s celebrity. The treatment has so far garnered mixed-results. Some of the most high-profile studies on HBOT have been conducted by the US government, at a cost of about $70 million.In three separate studies, researchers returned a conclusion that any improvements were attributed to a placebo effect. But other research has been move favorable, including one in Israel that found patients with prolonged symptoms registered significant improvements because of HBOT.Miskin characterized HBOT as a potential game-changer.Dr. Alan Sherr, owner and operator of Northport Wellness Center and founder of Hyperbaric Medical Solutions in Woodbury, agrees.“There’s a wide range of tools that are available for people who have experienced concussion injuries,” Sherr said after the forum. He noted that HBOT for concussions may be “new to that world in this context, but not new to the world of science as it relates to hyerbarics.”Dr. Henry Prince, medical director at Hyperbaric Medical Solutions, said one of the biggest themes of the event was that “finally concussions are being taken seriously and that the best way to move forward is through education.”Prince appreciates Namath’s role in pushing science forward.“He’s saying what we’ve been saying for a long time,” he said, adding, “hyperbaric oxygen therapy remains and incredibly effective and important tool for the treatment of concussions.”Jon Reese is the president of Mike It Count, a nonprofit that provides a range of services to veterans, including house and education. He turned to Hyperbaric Medical Solutions after suffering through a Traumatic Brain Injury stemming from multiple sports-related concussions and challenges with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on Lower Manhattan, where he worked on Wall Street.Reese spent years meeting with neuropsychologists and going through therapy and made a little progress. Last December he tried out HBOT and “it’s the healthiest I’ve been in 16 years,” he said.“It’s an incredible journey,” Reese added.Namath and his brethren noted that they’re grateful for the opportunities sports afforded them. That they’re now speaking out about the effects of head injury is not intended to preclude people from playing professional sports, they just want to ensure future athletes are armed with as much information as possible—something that eluded them when they were coming into their own.“The only way that we’re going to make this world better for our children is through education,” said former Jet Marty Lyons. “We got to work hard at it, we got to work smart at it and we got to work together.”(Photo credit: Steven Gaines/NYIT-Old Westbury)Disclaimer: Hyperbaric Medical Solutions is a client of Morey Publishing, parent company of Long Island Press.last_img read more

first_imgLeadership is, at times, an honor, a burden, a privilege, a headache, a riddle, a mirror, a crisis, and a joy. Sometimes it’s two or more of these at the same time.But leadership is first, foremost, and always, a responsibility.A responsibility to whom? Ask any good leader, and they’ll tell you that they have, broadly speaking, three constituencies:1. Their teamWhen a leader is responsible to the team, that leader:communicates a clear and compelling direction for the team;shares the credit with the team for all successes;accepts the responsibility for all “failures;”treats team members as individuals;creates a context where team members can grow and develop their potential.2. Their organizationA leader is responsible to the organization that employs him or her, no matter whether that employment is paid or voluntary. This means that the leader:delivers results that drive the organization forward;acts in a way that presents the organization in the best possible light;makes decisions and takes actions that support the long-term success of the organization;communicates honestly with others within the organization, even when — in fact, especially when — the information is negative or otherwise uncomfortable;realizes that his or her employment represents an investment by the organization, and always makes sure that the return on that investment is greater than the cost.3. Their communityCorporate social responsibility is becoming more and more important, particularly to the millennials who comprise the workforce and the customer/member base. Because of this, a responsible leader:actively looks for ways that the goals of the organization intersect with the goals of the community (and that community can be local, regional, national, or global);understands that the organization is, in a sense, a “citizen” of the larger community, and strives to make sure that it’s a good citizen;recognizes that when you’re in a community, it really sucks when one of your neighbors is a jerk — so a good leader tries very hard to not be a jerk;supports the larger community through sponsorships, scholarships, and/or other outreach opportunities;asks not just, “Is this good for my organization?” but also, “Is this good for my community?” when making decisions (and, again, “community” can be local, regional, national, or global).That’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s not always possible to deliver on all the implied promises. Sometimes one responsibility ends up being in conflict with another, and the leader has to make a decision. But then, that’s what leaders do, don’t they? They make decisions.The big picture here is that I want you to take your credit union leadership seriously. It’s not just about getting your reports done on time. That’s management. Leadership is something bigger.Yes, it’s a responsibility. But try changing the word “responsibility” to “opportunity.” As a leader, you have an opportunity to make a difference. To your team, to your organization, and to your community. That’s the foundation on which credit unions are built.I think that’s pretty cool. 26SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Bill Stainton Bill Stainton works with extraordinary leaders who want to produce breakthrough results with their teams.

McCabe contributed a kill and a block.With the second-set win, SU secured two sets in a conference match for the third time this year and for the first time since Oct. 24.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLooking to close out the match, Syracuse scored the first four points of the third stanza on the strength of two McCabe blocks. SU kept pushing ahead after UVA got on the board, taking its biggest lead of the set at 13-6. For the rest of the set, Virginia fought to stay in it, keeping the game close and slowly chipping away.After outside hitter Silvi Uattara brought SU to match point on her 16th kill, UVA scored three straight to tie the set at 24. Virginia defensive specialist Karlie Suber missed on a serve, bringing Syracuse to its second match point.For the final point of the Orange’s season, middle blockers Monika Salkute and Leah Levert combined on a block to take the set, 26-24.On McCabe’s senior night, she scored 12.5 points on seven kills and five total blocks, four of them solo. Uattara led the offensive attack with 16 kills on 36 attempts.Also playing in her last match, Melina Violas got the start as a defensive specialist and recorded four digs and 22 serve receipts. Stacey Smith, also a senior, had 9.5 points. Comments Published on November 28, 2014 at 9:55 pm Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
