first_imgThe DRSWG Christmas Road Safety Campaign is encouraging all road users to ensure they have a safe way of travelling home from a night out over the Christmas & New Year holiday season. The campaign focuses on preventing drink driving over the festive period, asking “Who will be taking you home tonight?”The image features local taxi driver Paul O’Keeney, Sgt. Mark Traynor, Letterkenny Roads Policing Unit, Paddy Doherty HSE Ambulance Service and Ernie Gibson, Funeral Director demonstrating that anyone who does decide to drink or drug drive could be arrested, be seriously injured or even be killed. Inspector Michael Harrison from An Garda Síochána said, “We are appealing to drivers this festive period, not to drink or take drugs when driving. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will impair your driving and put the lives of yourself and other road users at risk. We will have roads policing operations running throughout the Christmas period, we are appealing to drivers who are out socialising, not to take the risk of driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. There has been a significant increase in the number of drivers that have been arrested for driving under the influence this year. Please do not put your own life in danger or the life of others by driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs”.Gareth Gibson, Donegal Youth Service, Inspector Michael Harrison, Brian O’Donnell, Sgt. Mark Traynor, Letterkenny Roads Policing Unit at launch at Listillion, Letterkenny.Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer added “Alcohol affects everybody’s driving for the worse. It creates a feeling of overconfidence, makes judging distance and speed more difficult and slows your reactions. All too often at this festive time ambulance crews are faced with the chaos caused by driving under the influence of drink or drugs. Either the driver is injured or they injure others, sometimes seriously, which is unacceptable. There are alternative ways of getting home, there are taxis and having a designated driver is always a good alternative. Please have a great festive season but don’t drive under the influence – we don’t want you to end up as a casualty or even killed. We are keen to promote this message over the next few weeks with support from local organisations including local businesses, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.”Cross Border launch 2019 – Inspector Michael Harrison, Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer, Inspector John Millar, PSNI, Harry Rutherford, Vice Chair, Road Safety NI and members of PSNI & Garda Siochanaat Cross Border Drink Driving campaign launch in Bridgend.Gardai launched their Christmas Drink Driving campaign on the N13 at Listillion, Letterkenny on Monday 2nd December and also along with the PSNI, launched their annual cross border Christmas Drink Driving campaign on the N13 at Bridgend, which is supported by the Donegal Road Safety Working Group as part of their ongoing road safety awareness programme, which also reinforces the continued co-operation between both forces with regard to road safety on both sides of the border.Everyone involved in promoting road safety, would like to take this opportunity to wish all road users a Happy and Safe Christmas and New Year.

first_imgOf the many things that were hard about watching Hurricane Sandy from the West Coast, the worst for me was how easy it would have been to stop watching. But I couldn’t make myself turn off the Internet. I watched with my eyes wide open. And I’m glad I did, because I found ways to help.Twitter is such a visceral force during an emergency like this. You can feel the fear swelling and the storm rushing in. It’s distracting. It’s stressful. But if it’s too much, you can lock your phone and go for a walk, and it’s 68 degrees and sunny out. And ahh, doesn’t it feel good to be off the grid, back in real life?The Internet had a dark side during the hurricane, and it was easy to get sucked in. So many fake photos went viral that pros had to work hard to sort them out. Stupid trolls tweeted false information in a time of crisis, tricking journalists and social media managers into sharing it. It was gross.The real news was bad enough. It was gut-wrenching to watch. I saw strangers and dear friends in trouble, and it was hard to concentrate on my airy Bay Area responsibilities. But I’m no good at disconnecting when something major is happening.Appreciating The Simple ThingsAs the storm churned on, I started to see a new thread emerge from people in New York and other storm-stricken places. I realize it’s not representative of everybody, and I know that the very ability to tweet something like this means that the tweeter got very lucky compared to people in Staten Island or Red Hook whose neighborhoods were destroyed. But more and more people in my streams started expressing their appreciation for the forced disconnection from the media madness. Then we began to organize. The Twitter channel @OccupySandy began to appear in my timeline. Occupy, that wayward, ground-up movement to fix our society, suddenly had a bright and worthy cause. I watched as the East Coast people in my life found help and found ways to help.And then then off-of-the-Internet, into-the-streets spirit started to spread westward. Leah Reich announced a Red Cross blood drive in San Francisco that she, Heathar Champ, and Amber Costley are working to turn into a grand campaign with its own website. Now, thanks to their initiative, I can do more to help than retweet and blog. I can give actual blood from my body.I have my reservations about being too wired in to virtual worlds, but all in all, after the too-real devastation of Hurricane Sandy, I’d say the Internet did a pretty good job.Lead image via @OccupySandy Tags:#hurricane sandy#Pause#social media Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit jon mitchell Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts last_img read more

first_imgReferencesMayo ClinicNational Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)Stepney, C., Kane, K., & Bruzzese, J.-M. (2011). My Child is Diagnosed with Asthma, Now What? Motivating Parents to Help Their Children Control Asthma. The Journal of School Nursing: The Official Publication of the National Association of School Nurses, 27(5), 340–347. Written by: Lakshmi Mahadevan, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Extension Specialist – Special Populations, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.Diagnosis: Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing), chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. The coughing often occurs at night or early in the morning (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute [NHLBI], 2018)A primary care doctor will diagnose asthma based on your child’s medical and family histories, a physical exam and test results. Asthma is determined to be intermittent, mild, moderate or severe. The level of severity will determine what treatment your child will start.Most children who have asthma develop their symptoms before five years of age.  Asthma is children younger than five years old can be harder to diagnose. A young child who has frequent wheezing with colds or respiratory infections is more likely to have asthma if (NHLBI, 2018):One or both parents have asthmaThe child has signs of allergies, including the allergic skin condition eczemaThe child has allergic reactions to pollens or other airborne allergensThe child wheezes even when he or she doesn’t have a cold or other infectionSymptoms Asthma symptoms vary from person to person (Mayo Clinic, 2018). Children may have infrequent asthma attacks, have symptoms only at certain times or have symptoms all the time.Asthma signs and symptoms include:Shortness of breathChest tightness or painTrouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing or wheezingA whistling or wheezing sound when exhaling (wheezing is a common sign of asthma in children)Coughing or wheezing attacks that are worsened by a respiratory virus, such as a cold or the fluReacting to DiagnosisThe initial diagnosis of a child with asthma may generate an emotional crisis for parents. Dominant emotions include denial, grief, self-doubt, powerlessness, anxiety, and guilt (Stepney, Kane, & Bruzzese, 2011)Denial: Initially parents may refuse to accept the diagnosis as a way to adapt. However, prolonged denial can negatively impact child’s treatment.Grief: Parents may grieve the loss of the ideal child, their perceived normal future, independence, previously established normal routines and changing roles within the family. Grief is not finite for many parents’ coping with a child with asthma and may occur over the life-span.Self-doubt and powerlessness: Parents may feel inadequate at managing asthma or doubt their ability to control environmental triggers or to juggle multiple medications, both of which can change with the seasonal nature of asthma.Anxiety: Parents may also experience anxiety about how to care for their child, the uncertainty of the severity and timing of the next asthma episode, medication side-effects, and/or potential lack of communication by health care professionals.Guilt: Another emotion parents may cope with in this phase is guilt. Parents may blame themselves for their child’s asthma and may feel as if they neglected their duty as parents when the child is diagnosed with asthma.Coping with DiagnosisParents coping with diagnosis, may consider the following:Seek information on asthma management strategiesUse strategies that are most effective. For instance, to increase the likelihood that the child takes daily medication, try keeping the medication with the child’s toothbrush (ie within plain sight and incorporate into routine).Practice identifying potential triggers and plan for availability of medication.Establish new routines that incorporate asthma management strategies.Establish and repeat family rituals such as dinnertime and bedtime so that stability and organization is restored.TreatmentTo control asthma, parents will need to partner with doctor to manage the child’s asthma. Children aged 10 or older—and younger children who are able—should take an active role in their asthma care. An active role to control child’s asthma includes:Arranging for treating other conditions that can interfere with asthma management.Avoiding things that worsen asthma (asthma triggers).Encouraging physical activity – although this can be a trigger, staying active is an important part of the child’s healthy lifestyle.Creating and following an asthma action plan for child both at home and school.An asthma action plan gives guidance to child on taking his or her medicines as prescribed; avoiding asthma triggers, incorporating t physical activity; tracking their level of asthma control; responding to worsening symptoms; and seeking emergency care when needed.

But Nadal accelerated after that and served out the victory on his second match point.Nadal, who is tied for a record 30 Masters titles with Djokovic, has never won the tournament in Paris. He will next face Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay, who beat 15th-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 6-7 (5), 7-6 (1), 6-2.Third-seeded Marin Cilic won 6-4, 6-3 against Borna Coric in an all-Croatian match.Cilic, who had 13 aces, will next play 14th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain.

He beat Richard Gasquet 6-4, 6-4.Frenchman Lucas Pouille kept alive his slim chances of qualifying for London with a 6-3, 6-4 win against Feliciano Lopez, but No. 12 Kevin Anderson’s chances took a blow after a 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 loss to Fernando Verdasco.No. 11 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s bid to reach London is over following a 2-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 loss to Julien Benneteau in an all-French match.Benneteau plays No. 7 David Goffin of Belgium, who won 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 against Adrian Mannarino.Also, No. 16 Jack Sock of the United States had 14 aces in a 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) win against Kyle Edmund and faces Pouille in Thursday’s third round. Nadal is also the oldest year-ending No. 1, testimony to his relentless determination.“It’s about the passion for what you are doing. It’s about the mentality of waking up every morning with the right motivation to go on court and improve something. That’s the winning mentality, no?” he replied, when asked what drives him. “The passion to improve something and practice every day with the right attitude to try to make that happen … not everybody is able to do it.”The only downside this season has been always losing to Federer, who leads the ATP Tour with seven titles.Federer has beaten Nadal four consecutive times — not dropping a set in three of them — and the 19-time Grand Slam champion was in outside contention for the No. 1 ranking before pulling out of Paris to focus on the season-ending ATP Finals in London next week.The 21-year-old Chung broke Nadal in the ninth game of the first set and held for 5-5.

When he puts on an India uniform, be it blue or white, something else happens: rather than adopting a disguise, a disguise adopts him. Then come the glares, the stares, the dance and the prance.It’s difficult to ignore the sideshow that make the bowler that is Sreesanth, but in Johannesburg, India took it all. Primarily it came accompanied by the most delicious outswinger since Kapil Dev’s and the most decisive Test match spell by an Indian fast bowler since Ajit Agarkar’s six-wicket haul against the Aussies in Adelaide in 2003 and before that Javagal Srinath’s 6-21 vs South Africa in Ahmedabad 10 summers ago. Sreesanth’s hijinks on the Highveld have led to a first-ever Test win on South African soil, a 1-0 lead in a three-Test series, with the hosts in a sweat and the match referee sitting up in his chair.But behind the manic Indian strike bowler is the boy Gopu who instructs his family to keep a lamp lit in the family prayer room during every big game he plays. It started with school cricket and the flame stayed lit all through the Johannesburg Test in the family home in Palarivattom on the outskirts of Kochi.Sreesanth is now being called the ‘character’ of the team who lights up the dressing room.Only the second Test cricketer from Kerala, Sreesanth’s profile in his home state has gone from being a local celebrity to the player whose giant portrait stares out from Nike posters.He is now being called the ‘character’ of the Indian team, the cricketer who lights the spark in the dressing room and it is easy to think of him as the clown. But somewhere behind the antics is a kernel of hard resolution and ambition. Old friend Pinku Thomas remembers Sreesanth solemnly, declaring he would play in a cricket World Cup and the rest of them laughing, “A Keralite playing in the World Cup. We could not imagine it!”advertisementHis bat, ball and body language psyched the oppositionJust like his tiny state in sport, Sreesanth has revelled in punching above his weight in cricket. As a young boy, he would voluntarily join weaker teams to try and beat stronger sides. “For all of us, playing cricket was just fun, for him it was sacred-like going to a temple,” says Thomas. A boy who took his college psychology textbooks to heart and read self-improvement books wrote in his 2000 diary that he would be playing for India by 2006.A Kochi coaching camp held in 1997 by a former Karnataka Ranji player Sashikanth changed Sreesanth’s life. Sashikanth recommended that Sreesanth move to Bangalore to join Florence Public School which had good facilities for cricket training.The next big step was in Chennai’s MRF Pace Academy, which eventually opened his way to cricket’s big league. After taking 22 wickets in his first seven matches for Kerala, he found his way into the south zone Duleep Trophy team, usually the platform for the best players to India colours. As the 2005 season witnessed a cleanout of old faces, a superb performance in the Challenger Trophy propelled him into the India team, where his idiosyncrasies caught the eye as much as his bowling.”He may look like it but I don’t think he’s a lunatic, there’s a lot of intelligence in his bowling” Sreekumar Nair, his Kerala state captain, believes it is the MRF Academy that sharpened the edges of an otherwise quiet, bespectacled boy. Nair usually carried two bats into the nets when facing Sreesanth, just in case one of them would break after by a succession of yorkers.Rahul Dravid came out of a corporate match in Chennai with his eyebrows raised and asked South Zone selection chief and former national selector V.B. Chandrasekhar if the nagging youngster had made the zonal team. That season he had not, on the advice of the Kerala selector who cited an “attitude problem”.Chandrasekhar, who faced Sreesanth two years ago in a company match, remembers the experience well. “I was 42 years old batting with a broken thumb, and this guy kept coming at me… short balls, yorkers, good reverse. He wouldn’t let up. I went away feeling that this is a guy India could need. He may look like it but I don’t think he’s a lunatic, there’s a lot of intelligence in his bowling.”advertisementEarlier this season in the Challenger Trophy, a batsman ticked Sreesanth off for marching down the pitch eye-balling him too much. When team coach Lalchand Rajput asked him later what he was trying to prove, Sreesanth said he tended to get “charged” while bowling and tended not to notice who the batsman was. “Don’t ever come that close to me again,” Sachin Tendulkar is rumoured to have said during the Challenger Trophy match. Due apologies were issued later.Suddenly the boy from Kerala is everyone toastIn a short career that is merely over a season old, Sreesanth has taken 27 wickets in six Tests at an average of 24.62 runs and an economy rate of 3.24 runs an over, a much better return for his work than in his ODI stats (22 ODIs, 29 wickets at an average of 34.37 runs, economy rate of 5.58).His future depends on the state of his fitness and how he is handled by the Indian team management. Chandrasekhar says, “The approach has to be well-balanced. If you try to admonish him, you run the risk of him going into shell and that’s not a good idea. You have to let him be himself but keep reminding him that he has a great deal of responsibility.”There is little doubt that Sreesanth enjoys all the attention and is engaging material for the cameras and the reporters’ notebooks. The son of S. Santhakumaran Nair, a retired officer with Life Insurance Corporation and Savitri Devi, a district treasury officer, the fast bowler’s family is full of performers. No mean dancer and drummer himself, Sreesanth’s elder sister Nivedita is an actress in Malayalam cinema and TV, brother-in-law Madhu Balakrishnan, is a prominent playback singer and brother Deepu runs a TV production house, but has spent the last few days handling the flood of endorsement offers that the most famous member of the family has received. Another celebrity cricketer in the making, and he better last.last_img read more

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. — An aspiring professional chef living in Dawson Creek made the Top 12 on last night’s fifth season premiere of Master Chef Canada.28 year-old Jen Jenkins, who grew up in both Mackenzie and Prince George and now lives in the Mile Zero City, made her first appearance on the show last night, when the Top 21 contestants were whittled down to just 12. The contestants’ first challenge for the panel of three judges was to make a signature dish using an ingredient they had brought from home.The stay-at-home mom had brought eggs with her to the challenge, deciding to wow the judges with her famous (among family and friends) Eggs Benedict. Jenkins explained that she’s worked on her version of the classic brunch dish for the better part of her life, and that it made sense she would open the competition with Eggs Benny. Jen Jenkins’ Eggs Benedict in a potato nest with hollandaise sauce and tomato salsa, which won her a spot in the Top 12 of Master Chef Canada’s fifth season last night. Photo by CTV.“I cook eggs everyday for myself, for my daughter, my husband. I figured why not go with that, and that’s what got me there today. For years and years I worked really hard on trying to create a Hollandaise sauce that was homemade instead of the packaged brand. I was always unhappy with the packaged brand. So I worked really hard on figuring out trying to make it and fixing it when it cracks. We used to have family meals every Sunday and I would do Eggs Benedict every time and everybody loved it. I would just start to put my own spin on it, but I’ve never done like I did last night with the potato nest. That was completely out of left field, I was like ‘I have to make it cooler, I have to make it better.’ And I did.”Dawson Creek resident Jen Jenkins and Master Chef Canada judge Claudio Aprile. Supplied photoAfter sampling all the dishes, the judges proclaimed that Jenkins was deserving of the white apron, allowing her to make the first cut of the competition. The winner will be walking away with $100,000 and the title of Master Chef Canada. Jenkins said that she’ll be continuing to stay focused during the rest of the competition in order to take home the title.Even if she doesn’t take home the title, Jenkins said that she’s already incredibly happy with qualifying for the show, which she applied for last August. Regardless of how well she does during the TV competition, the amateur chef will be making a big step toward her goal of turning pro: Jenkins said that she and her family will be moving to Ontario later this year after she was accepted to the Stratford Chefs School. Jenkins said that she’ll begin her studies next fall, with the goal of achieving her dream of being paid to do what she loves: cook delicious food.Master Chef Canada airs Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. on CTV.last_img read more

first_imgSrinagar: A Pakistani terrorist, who was indoctrinated and trained by 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, was arrested from Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said here on Wednesday.Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Mohammad Waqar Awan, who was tasked with reviving militancy in certain areas of the Kashmir valley, was arrested earlier this week and paraded before the media on Wednesday at the Police Control Room. Awan, a resident of Mohalla Miana in Mianwali area of Punjab in Pakistan, was indoctrinated by Lakhvi at his residence in Rawalpindi, officials said. The initial arms training to the Pakistani terrorist was also given by Lakhvi, who along with six others has been charged by the Pakistani authorities with planning and executing the Mumbai attacks in November, 2008 that left 166 people dead. Lakhvi is currently on bail, and the case is moving very slowly. Awan, known by alias of “Chota Dujana , told reporters that before he joined militancy, he was told that atrocities were being inflicted on the people of Kashmir by security forces but he saw no such thing in the Valley. “I received training for four months at a camp in Muzaffarabad. I was told that atrocities are committed on children and women. Prayers are not allowed in mosques and houses of Muslims are destroyed, he told reporters, adding he found that the conditions were different in Kashmir. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Police officials said Awan’s arrest and “confession” is live evidence for Pakistan as to how youths are manipulated on its soil, prepared for militancy and then sent here to join Jaish-e-Mohammad or Lashkar-e-Taiba. Asked if he was involved in any attacks in the valley, Awan said, I was not involved in any attack.” The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Baramulla, Abdul Qayoom, said Awan had infiltrated into the valley in July 2017. “He was active in Handwara (area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district). For the last about two years, he was active in different places of Srinagar. When he was returning to Baramulla, he was intercepted at a naka (check post). However, the driver of his vehicle rammed it into police vehicle and sped away.last_img read more
