How Can I Keep My Child Safe Around Water?

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here From Florida Hospital – ApopkaBecause drowning is the leading cause of death from injury for toddlers in Florida, Stacey McConkey, MD, pediatrician, offers the following tips to prevent water tragedies:1. Always supervise children in and around water.2. Install four-sided, five-foot- high fencing with a self-closing, self-latching gate around pools and spas to prevent direct access from the house.3. Always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved Personal Floatation Device (PFD) when on a boat.4. Never leave a young child alone or with a sibling in the bathtub, not even to answer the phone or to get a towel. If you must leave, take the child with you.5. Although they can’t “drown-proof” a child, swimming lessons are a must.6. Never swim in unguarded areas, such as canals or ponds.7. Learn CPR and know how to reach your Emergency Medical Service; keep a phone outside near pools and have emergency numbers posted.Children should follow 4 rules for swimming: Swim with a buddy, never alone. Don’t dive or jump into bodies of water; always wade in first.Don’t push or jump on top of others.Be prepared for an emergency.​“Swimming pools are where most submersion injuries occur, but small children can drown in less than an inch of water – in a matter of seconds – making even ‘kiddy pools,’ bathtubs, buckets and toilets potential hazards,” says Dr. McConkey. “By simply taking a few simple safety precautions, parents can significantly reduce their child’s chance of drowning.”– For more details, go here.

The Centre provides day, respite and residential care and rehabilitation for 70 individuals every year.About two thirds of Castel Froma residents have sustained a brain injury following a traumatic accident or as a result of a medical problem. Others suffer from Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or other degenerative neurological conditions. The youngest resident is 22, and the oldest, 91.In addition to 24-hour nursing care, Castel Froma offers physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy to help residents to retain their independence for as long as possible.It costs £3.5m every year to provide such quality, long-term care and although Castel Froma receives income from the NHS to cover basic costs, £260,000 is needed each year to provide additional equipment, rehabilitation and therapy support, and social activities for residents.Up until September 2011 the organisation did not actively fundraise, existing almost exclusively on legacy and endowment gifts. But when it became clear that the building was no longer fit for purpose, the organisation decided that a long-term fundraising strategy was imperative. As a result, a Fundraising Director, Susie Murray, was appointed to spearhead the organisation’s fundraising activities.Susie knew that a CRM system was fundamental in creating a high performing fundraising department and so began to search for a provider. As a small charity with no fundraising history, Susie’s main priority was to get a flexible, cost effective solution that could grow with the organisation. Susie explained, ‘I was immediately impressed with how user friendly the software was. thankQ was head and shoulders above the competition in that respect, and that was such an important consideration for us’.Castel Froma will be using thankQ to handle its fundraising and events activities as part of an ambitious plan to raise £7million for a new building and to provide a long-term future for the organisation and the care of its residents. Susie is confident that thankQ is the right partner for the job, telling us, ‘I would really recommend thankQ. Even though it’s early days for us, I can fast forward three years and see how thankQ will help me to monitor and grow all our traditional fundraising areas and how it will take us from a start-up to a multi-million pound charity’.Castel Froma is actively seeking opportunities to develop new and exciting partnerships.

Senators Look to Extend Disaster Assistance Programs

first_img By Gary Truitt – Jan 27, 2013 Senators Look to Extend Disaster Assistance Programs SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow has joined Max Baucus of Montana and Roy Blunt of Missouri in introducing legislation to extend ag disaster programs that expired at the end of fiscal year 2011 and were not included in the nine month farm bill extension. The bill would backfill the programs for 2012 and extend them through 2013 as Congress works to pass long-term farm legislation. Without an extension – the Senators say many farmers and ranchers will be left with no support to recover from severe fires and drought that swept the country last year – as well as early freezes for fruit growers. Stabenow notes the nation is helping those families who lost everything because of weather disasters like Hurricane Sandy – and says it’s only right to help farming families who lost everything because of weather disasters.The Livestock Indemnity Program, Livestock Forage Program, Emergency Livestock Assistance Program, Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program and Tree Assistance Program would all be extended under this bill.center_img Home Indiana Agriculture News Senators Look to Extend Disaster Assistance Programs Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleAppeals Court Issues Mixed DecisionNext articleDairy Industry Turbulence could Settle in 2013 Gary Truittlast_img read more

Ukraine

first_img February 26, 2021 Find out more News Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV News LINKS:- The freedom of expression body The Institute of Mass Information- The opposition paper Antenna- The online opposition paper Ukrainskaia Pravda Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority June 19, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ukraine Ukraine is rather behind where the Internet is concerned. The price of computers and especially the cost of connections is too high for most people. Continuing delay in privatising UkrNet, the government telecommunications firm, is also an obstacle to the introduction of competition and thus much lower prices.But bold journalists in this country under the iron hand of President Leonid Kuchma have been using the Internet since the late 1990s to put out independent news. This has come at a big price, as shown by the murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze.Progress in the Gongadze murder enquiryUkrainskaya Pravda was founded in spring 2000 as the first opposition newspaper published only online. Its incisive articles soon made it popular with Ukrainians. “It’s a way to be a free journalist that’s otherwise impossible in Ukraine,” said Gongadze, its founder and editor. In the months before he vanished, he several times reported he had been threatened. In July 2000, he even complained to the country’s prosecutor-general, Mihailo Potebenko, about “deliberate intimidation” to frighten him and stop him working.On 2 November that year, his headless corpse was found near Tarashcha, 140 km from Kiev. Revelations that top government officials were probably involved jolted Kuchma’s regime. But the authorities vigorously blocked a search for the truth. The prosecutor-general’s office and the interior ministry opposed any serious attempt to investigate Gongadze’s disappearance and murder.But investigations started making progress in 2002. On 19 July, the prosecutor-general ordered a new analysis of tape recordings implicating Kuchma and agreed to a new autopsy on Gongadze’s body with the help of European experts. On 5 August, a new prosecutor-general, Svyatoslav Piskun, granted Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard the right to legally represent the civil parties in the case. On 3 September, Piskun admitted the law had been broken during the enquiry, formally recognised the body as Gongadze’s and that he had been decapitated. On 10 September, Piskun said the public prosecutor in Tarashcha, where the body had been found, had been charged with forging the initial statement about the body and with not having tried to identify the body immediately. The Tarashcha police investigator, Sergy Belinsky, was also charged with forgery.On the second anniversary of Gongadze’s disappearance, on 16 September, Reporters Without Borders asked for permission to re-examine, with an independent expert of its choice, all the forensic tests done so far as well as related documents. It also asked the prosecutor-general’s office to question four men who reportedly followed Gongadze in the weeks before he vanished.The same day, Gongadze’s widow Myroslava, with the help of the Damocles Network and the Institute of Mass Information, filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights, accusing the prosecutor’s office of obstructing investigations. In October, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Ménard and a French pathologist went through all the results of the previous forensic analyses. An independent autopsy, at the request of Gongadze’s mother and arranged by Reporters Without Borders, was done in January 2003 and formally identified the body as that of Gongadze. The investigation, which should now focus on former interior ministry officials, has not produced any further results.Monitoring increasesIn January 2001, an Internet department was set up in the State Information Committee with the aim of “monitoring false news about Ukraine.”On 28 February, a government decree put the State Centre for Information Security under the secret police, the SBU, which thus gained control over the Internet.On 1 June, an NGO was set up to administer websites using the national domain name “.ua”. Among its founders, apart from the SBU, were several ISPs previously in charge of running the domain but which had yielded control to the new body. The NGO proposed a law on 12 November to step up monitoring of the Internet under the guise of fighting terrorism, organised crime and pornography.On 26 June, investigative journalist Oleg Yeltsov was summoned for questioning by the SBU and accused of “violating state secrets” by posting on the website Ukraina Kriminalna (Criminal Ukraine) an article describing the lifestyle of former secret police chief Leonid Derkach and his son, a member of Ukraine’s oligarchy. Yeltsov’s apartment was searched while he was away being questioned.On 16 July, SBU chief Volodymir Radchenko told a press conference in Kiev that the SBU wanted all Internet users to register with the authorities. He said this was so a directory could be produced for users.On 23 August, President Kuchma signed a decree about openness of telecommunications in Ukraine that gave the government a month to spell out steps to improve state regulation of the flow of information.On 25 September, access to the website of the opposition newspaper Antenna in Cherkassy was blocked. The previous day, the local militia had visited the paper’s offices and offered “protection” for the website.In December 2001, journalists of the online newspaper Forum were called in by the SBU and accused of revealing state secrets on the website on 15 June that year in an article reporting the results of an inspection of the state reserves office. Legal aid from the Institute of Mass Information enabled the journalists to escape prosecution.On 21 February 2002, the editors of the online political newspaper Obkom filed a complaint against the national tax authority the day after its officials went the paper’s offices to search them even though they only had a warrant to search a bank on the floor below. Despite editor Sergy Sukhobok’s protests and presentation of various legal documents allowing the site to operate, the officials seized computer equipment and some of the archives. Although the tax authority said later the search had been done “by accident,” the computers were never returned.

Dudley discussed how household debt could reach its 2008 peak all over again later this year.“Following a period of steady deleveraging that began during the Great Recession, households have gradually increased their borrowing during the past three years,” said Dudley. “Later this year, total household debt is expected to reach its previous peak, from the third quarter of 2008. Given past experience, one might wonder whether this level of indebtedness is sustainable or a reason for concern.”Household debt reached a peak of $12.7 trillion in Q3 2008. Following the peak, debt declined for several years until recently. The past three years have seen a gradual increase in debt, reaching $12.6 trillion by Q4 2016. Borrowers have shifted away from housing-related debt into student loan and auto debt. While housing-related debt remains at $1 trillion below peak level, auto loan and student loan debt has increased by $367 billion and $671 billion, respectively. The Fed’s briefing ended with some notes on the state of student loans.The New York Fed noted that student loan debt has begun to level off, though still remain at a high level. Payment progress is particularly slow for those who borrowed more. Despite the debt, The New York Fed still found that those with higher degrees are still more likely to become homeowners than those without. The gap grows even more with age.Those with bachelor’s degrees and no debt become even more likely to own a home with age. That number increases even more for higher degrees. Even those who just attend college and don’t graduate, and still hold debt, are more likely to become homeowners.
