3 Children with Congenital Heart Defects Undergo Surgery in Senegal

Posted on by

first_imgDr. Camanor (far left) head of the team with the kids at the Robert’s International Airport. Authorities at the Ministry of Health (MoH) through the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK) in collaboration with La Chaîn de L’espoir (The Chain of Hope) has sponsored three children that were diagnosed of congenital heart defects to undergo surgery at the Cuomo Centre for Pediatric Cardiology in Darkar, Senegal, a release from the hospital has said.La Chaîn de L’espoir (the Chain of Hope) is a French non-governmental organization, which is a network of excellence and expertise committed to providing access to child care for the poorest countries that do not have technical and human resources to treat them.The three children, who are between the ages the of 1-3 years, are Marthaline Gborhn Dwan, Ronel Desire Saygar, and Famata Jackson.According to the release, the children departed for Senegal on Saturday, October 13 for the life-saving medical heart procedures.The kids were accompanied by their mothers on a team headed by JFK Pediatrician (children doctor) and JFK Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sia Wata Camanor.The going of the children was made possible through cooperation between JFK and La Chaîn de l’Espoir.Earlier, Dr. Camanor diagnosed the kids of heart defects, but since then, they have been treated and managed at the JFK children’s ward.She said that with the help of the newly established Cuomo Centre for Pediatric Cardiology in Dakar, the kids will undergo ‘free open-heart surgery’ on Monday, October 22.“The surgery is soft but takes a couple of hours, so we have to arrive sooner to do the proper examination to confirm diagnoses and also make sure the patients are fit for such surgery,” Dr. Camanor said.She said that though the procedure is life-saving, it is a major treatment that involves risk and therefore needs proper care and attention.According to Camanor, JFK has worked with different organizations, including the HeartGift of the United States that received five kids, while the institutions they worked with helped to provide services, but did not provide plane tickets and the visas.Dr. Camanor said that because of the major challenges in the health sector, La Chaîn l’Espoir undertook an exploratory mission to Liberia and met with officials of the government, including the management of the JFK Medical Center to discuss the possibility to aid Liberian pediatric patients until the health sector is equipped to handle such cases.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Frustrated Lampard bemoans Chelsea’s missed chances

Posted on by

first_imgChelsea’s Frank Lampard rued his side’s missed chances following their 1-0 Club World Cup defeat against Corinthians in Japan.Goalkeeper Cassio produced a number of good saves – including a late stop from Fernando Torres, who should have scored.Lampard told Chelsea TV: “It was always going to be a tough game. They’re a very good team and you come away with that bad feeling we had enough chances to at least draw the game.“They’re very organised and counter attack. We knew what they were going to bring. It’s disappointing really to get all the way here and not win it.”More reaction to follow later.See also:Chelsea beaten in Club World Cup 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Extension SNAP-Ed making strides in addressing Ohio’s nutrition issues

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Three years ago, one of Ohio State University Extension’s community nutrition programs started making a special effort to expand its reach to children and teens.By any measure, the effort has been a wild success.Known as SNAP-Ed, it’s the nutrition education program for recipients of the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps, and for other low-income Ohioans. Ohio SNAP-Ed has always had a youth component, but in 2012, before the expansion began, it reached just 18,443 children and teens, said Pat Bebo, director of Community Nutrition for OSU Extension.Compare that to the number reached during the 2015 federal fiscal year that ended Sept. 30: 171,229. That’s an increase of 927% over 2012. The program grew primarily by expanding its involvement with schools with a significant low-income population — those that have 50% or more students eligible for free or reduced-price meals.“For the most part, schools are very receptive. They’re very interested in providing this information for their students,” said Bebo, who is also interim assistant director in charge of OSU Extension’s Family and Consumer Sciences program.SNAP-Ed also works with libraries, preschools, childcare centers and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program  — “anywhere children are” — to provide nutrition programming, she said. Helping young people make healthy food choices can have a long-lasting benefit and generate a ripple effect for the entire family, Bebo said.“Prior to coming to Ohio, when I was in Massachusetts, we did an evaluation of parents of children who participated in our SNAP-Ed programs,” Bebo said. “It showed that children were change agents for the family.“When children come home and say, ‘Let’s have water with dinner because soda is not the best choice,’ or ‘Let’s have vegetables with each meal,’ parents pay attention. If children say they want a healthier cereal with whole grains instead of the cereal with high sugar content, parents will buy that healthier cereal.“Often what it takes is educating the child on what the difference is, and why certain options are better for them. And they’ll choose it. It’s a simple thing. They’re willing to learn anything.“Children really can help the whole family change behaviors, which is one of the reasons why we really put an emphasis on reaching them.”Bebo provides leadership for Extension’s county-based community nutrition programs, which include SNAP-Ed and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). Designed for low-income consumers, the federally funded programs focus on helping people choose higher quality, nutritionally dense foods and include other aspects of healthy living, including food safety and physical activity.In 2015, SNAP-Ed, which is offered in 69 Ohio counties, also reached 40,766 adult participants. In addition, EFNEP, which is offered in 19 Ohio counties and is specifically geared for low-income families with children, reached 3,767 adults and 10,766 youths.“These are probably the best-evaluated nutrition education programs around,” Bebo said. “Year after year, we see that people who participate increase their intake of fruits and vegetables and increase their food safety behaviors. It’s significant.”Bebo related a story from Scioto County, where SNAP-Ed program assistants included taste-testing of mangoes in both their adult and school programs in September as a way to encourage eating a wider variety of produce.The result? The produce manager at the local grocery store had trouble keeping mangoes in stock.“He wasn’t sure what was going on,” Bebo said. “This speaks to the impact of children learning what different fruits and vegetables taste like, and then turning around and influencing the family.Despite the nutrition programs’ positive impact on participants, the issue of hunger is more complex than many people realize. But it’s something Bebo considers daily.According to a USDA report released in September, 7.5% of Ohio households experienced “very low food security” from 2012 to 2014. That was an increase from Ohio’s 6.4% average from 2009 to 2011. And it’s worse than every state but Arkansas, Missouri and Maine. Nationwide, the prevalence of very low food security has held steady over the last few years at 5.6%.“Food insecurity” is the term used for households that face uncertainty or limited ability to provide enough food. As part of a team working on a special project for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the national organization of nutrition professionals, Bebo examined how registered dietitians could get engaged in community initiatives designed to help fight hunger.“We have all these supports,” Bebo said, including community gardens, food banks and food pantries, “healthy corner store” programs, farmers market programs that help stretch SNAP benefit dollars, and educational programs such as those Bebo oversees.“But even with all these programs, individual food insecurity isn’t getting better,” Bebo said. “When a family goes to a food pantry, we’re plugging a hole.“It helps — significantly — but it doesn’t get to the reason why people are food insecure.” What’s needed, Bebo said, is additional research on the underlying issues of food insecurity.Bebo believes substantive behavior changes take place when messages are reinforced in many different ways.“We can’t solve these issues in a silo,” she said.When children hear a nutrition message in a SNAP-Ed program, are presented with healthier choices in school meals, and see more whole-grain breakfast cereals advertised on television, the combination makes a difference.“When you put messages in front of people in different ways, you will influence them to change.”OSU Extension’s Community Nutrition programs are continually improving, Bebo said, trying new ways to reach target audiences. They are part of the larger support system addressing food insecurity, but Bebo wants to continue to work on the underlying issues that remain elusive.“There absolutely has to be that safety net. It’s critically important for people to have that support and have ways they can provide nutritious food for their families,” she said.“But what are we not following through on? Are we missing something that would make a foundational difference?“I think the conversation we need to have has to be oriented around policy and culture, and we have to tease out the sociological and psychological components. It’s a very complicated issue and we need to learn to understand it so we can target interventions that truly will address a family’s food security.”last_img read more

Singur farmers hold rally to demand return of land

Posted on by

first_imgThousands of people on Wednesday took out a rally in Hooghly district’s Singur, demanding the return of their farmland with the slogan: “Tata go back from Singur”. The rally started at the Sahanapara locality and concluded at the main gate of the Tata Motors’ aborted Nano factory site in Singur. Around 7,000 villagers, mostly ‘unwilling’ farmers and their family members, participated in the rally that was spearheaded by Trinamool MLA from Haripal and Singur anti-farmland acquisition committee’s convener Becharam Manna.”We participated in the rally because we want our farmland back. The state government has already taken possession of the acquired land which had been handed over to the Nano factory,” Mahadeb Das, an ‘unwilling’ farmer of Singur, said during the rally.The ‘unwilling’ farmers marched across many villages in and around Singur with placards reading “Tata go back and vacate our farmland”. They also welcomed the state government’s “historic decision” to reclaim the land.”We are very happy. We will now get back our land from the factory,” Das said. According to the records available, over 3,000 ‘unwilling’ farmers never accepted the compensation against their acquired land.Meanwhile, a section of the Singur villagers entered the Nano factory site as the private security guards were withdrawn from the premises on Wednesday morning. They ransacked the abandoned car manufacturing unit and allegedly took away some electric poles, asbestos sheets and iron rods from the Tata Motors unit.”Around 50 villagers, not part of the rally, managed to sneak into the factory and made off with some material,” a Singur villager said.advertisementVisiting Singur on Wednesday, social activist Medha Patkar welcomed the new state government’s move to return the land to the ‘unwilling’ farmers. “Now we can say the farmers of Singur fought bravely and got their due,” Patkar, who also undertook a rally in the area, said.She appealed to the state government to keep in mind the interests of sharecroppers and landless labourers while returning the acquired land.The Forward Bloc, which is among the Left Front constituents, on Wednesday squarely blamed the Tatas for acquiring the “fertile Singur land” for setting up industry. “We all know the land was fertile and the Tata Motors had forcibly acquired the land. The people are watching everything and they will not like this attitude of the Tatas,” party state secretary Ashok Ghosh said.For more News, click here.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

10 months agoBayern Munich chiefs Kovac, Salihamidzic concerned after Liverpool draw

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Bayern Munich chiefs Kovac, Salihamidzic concerned after Liverpool drawby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich coach Niko Kovac believes getting Liverpool in the Champions League round of 16 is the toughest draw they could land.The Bundesliga champions will travel to Anfield for the first leg on February 19 with the second leg at the Allianz Arena on March 13.Kovac said, “Liverpool got to the final last year, they’re top of the Premier League and one of the favourites for the Champions League.“We’re FC Bayern München, though, and I’m sure Liverpool know they’ve got to come here to Munich for the second leg. The chances are 50-50. We’ll see what happens. I’m very confident we’ll get through.”Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: “They’re the team of the hour, they’re the league leaders in England.“They play good football, they’re very physical and they’re full of energy.“You need two good days. They were in the final last year, they’re a top side, it’s a tough one but these are the challenges that you look forward to as a player and that you have to overcome in your career.”Winger Arjen Robben was also gushing in his praise of Jurgen Klopp’s side.“It’s an epic match. Liverpool are a super team who have gone through a great development,” Robben told Bayern’s website.“They have big players, a lot of pace and creativity in attack and they’re a real unit. The atmosphere will be phenomenal. It’s just a great draw. It’s a dream for every player to be involved in a game like this.”However, Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer claimed that the Reds can still be “vulnerable” defensively having shipped seven goals in the group stage.“They’re having a very good season and we know they were in the Champions League final last year,” Neuer said.“They certainly won’t be delighted with the draw, either. They can counter quickly and they’re dangerous in front of goal, but they’re also vulnerable, as we’ve seen, and they’ll be up against a good Bayern attack.” last_img read more

Slightly overshadowed by a few disappointing chants, which could be clearly heard on the pitch, but we showed a great response and ultimately we let the football do the talking.”I think the protocol was effective, and there was less chanting after that.

Oklahoma State Honoring Members Of Basketball Program Who Died In Plane Crash 14 Years Ago Today

Posted on by

first_imgOklahoma State honors 2001 plane crash victims.On January 27th, 2001, the Oklahoma State basketball program suffered an unthinkable tragedy when eight members of its family (two players and six staffers and broadcasters) died in a plane crash while returning from a game in Colorado. In the years since that traumatic event, the 10 people who died in the crash –including the pilot and co-pilot–have been memorialized with a banner hanging in the rafters of OSU’s home court, Gallagher-Iba Arena, and a memorial located inside the Athletics Center. Also, each year, at the home game closest to the date of the crash, Oklahoma State honors the 10. This post from the Cowboys’ official athletics Instagram account has all the details on the ceremony before tonight’s game against Baylor: Very touching and appropriate tribute for those whose lives were inexplicably cut short, and it’s incredible to think 14 years has passed since this tragedy happened.last_img read more
