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.

Tax time

first_imgBy April SorrowUniversity of GeorgiaApril 15, the 2009 tax deadline, is near. Remember, not all tax services are the same and that some things have changed, say financial experts with the University of Georgia. “Shopping around for a tax service makes a difference. You will save in terms of the fees you pay and the amount of taxes you end up owing or have due to you in a refund,” said Michael Rupured, consumer economics specialist with UGA Cooperative Extension. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program certified by the Internal Revenue Service provides free preparation and, in most cases, electronically file returns. The program targets working families with incomes less than $45,000 a year. Call 1-800-829-1040 to find out more. The AARP Tax Counseling for the Elderly program often provides senior citizens free tax services. It will prepare returns for VITA-eligible filers, too.“You can use the Internet to prepare and file your return,” Rupured said. “Online options are generally very user-friendly, though often somewhat tedious and time-consuming.”Other options are professional accountants to commercial tax preparation chains, he said. But the fees charged vary depending on qualifications, complexity of the return, the number of forms required and other services provided. Some companies offer tax refunds on the spot. But, Rupured said these refund-anticipation loans are an expensive way to get refunds. With electronic filing, the IRS will deposit refunds in seven to 10 days.Itemize or not?Two-thirds of Americans choose standard deduction over itemizing deductions. But taking the time to itemize could save money, said Joan Koonce, a financial management specialist with UGA Extension.“Medical expenses that exceed 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income are deductible,” she said. “You can also deduct mortgage interest paid on your first and second home. First and second mortgages, home equity loans and home equity lines of credit apply. Real estate and other property taxes are deductible expenses, too. In addition, primary mortgage insurance premiums are deductible by some homeowners who purchased their home during a certain period of time.” State and local income taxes or sales tax paid on retail purchases are also deductible. As are charitable gifts given to IRS-approved organizations. Gifts to religious, scientific or educational organizations might also be deducted.Total work expenses – such as union dues or equipment — greater than 2 percent of adjusted gross income can be deducted.“Remember that if you and your spouse are married filing separately and one of you chooses to itemize deductions, the other must do the same,” Koonce said. “Keep receipts for the items you are deducting in the event you are audited.”In addition to deductions, you may qualify for a credit. You might be eligible for the credit this year if you did not receive an economic stimulus payment, received less than the maximum economic stimulus payment, gained an additional qualifying child or could no longer be claimed as a dependent on another person’s tax return.“Keeping up-to-date on the tax changes for this season is important to help you ease the tax burden or possibly get a refund,” Koonce said. Here are a few changes for the 2008 tax season: • You can contribute $1,000 more than last year to an Individual Retirement Account. The max contribution for those under 50 is $5,000. It’s $6,000 for those 50 and older. • Each year, the standard deduction and exemption amount adjust for inflation. The standard deduction has increased $200 to $10,900 for married couples filing jointly; $5,450 for married couples filing separately and singles; and $8,000 for household heads. Personal and dependency exemptions increased to $3,500.• Green tax credits are available up to $500 for home energy-saving improvements. You can get a credit of 30 percent, up to $2,000, for equipment that is solar or wind powered.• Children’s investment income, or kiddy tax, taxes certain amounts of investment income from investments held in a child’s name at the parents’ marginal tax rate. Now, children under 19 and full-time students up to age 24 can be taxed at their parents’ marginal tax rate on their investment income over $1,800.For more information, go to the IRS Web site at www.irs.gov.last_img read more

Supari denies H5N1 caused girl’s death

first_imgNov 13, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesian Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari today denied reports that a 15-year-old girl who recently died had H5N1 avian influenza.News services—citing one of the girl’s doctors and a local health official—reported yesterday that tests from two laboratories showed that the girl from central Java, who died Nov 7, had the virus. If the reports are correct and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes her infection, her illness will be listed as Indonesia’s 138th H5N1 case and 113th death.However, Supari said today that two laboratory tests came back negative, according to reports from Agence France-Presse and Xinhua, China’s state news agency. “Both of the laboratory tests showed that she was negative of bird flu, so the total death toll (of bird flu) remains 112,” she told Xinhua.The girl reportedly lived near a poultry slaughterhouse.News about human H5N1 infections in Indonesia since June has been difficult to evaluate, because the health ministry said then it would no longer promptly report H5N1 cases, instead giving only periodic updates. Some health officials have said the lack of prompt reporting will hamper efforts to monitor the world’s pandemic risk level.In other developments, 17 people from Sudiang subdistrict in Indonesia’s South Sulawesi province have been hospitalized in Makassar for symptoms that resemble avian influenza, the Jakarta Post reported today. Thirteen of the patients are children.Andi Kurina Bintang told the Post that the patients had high fever, coughing, and breathing difficulty. “Rapid tests showed they may be infected with H5N1 avian influenza virus, but we are waiting for blood test results to come back from the Hasanuddin University lab,” she said.She said 31 chickens had died in the subdistrict the week before three toddlers became ill, according to the Post report.Sulistiawati, a livestock official in Makassar, told the Post that rapid tests on several of the chickens were positive for the virus.See also:Nov 12 CIDRAP News story “Indonesian sources say teen died of H5N1 infection”last_img read more
