(AP Photo/Gerald Herbert) Christian women’s organization creates major following at TCU ReddIt printThe TCU Department of Criminal Justice wants to find a resolution to the heated tensions among police officers and the community.“Building Public Trust in A Time of Turmoil: Policing in the 21st Century“, a forum with police officers and officials, will take place on Nov. 29 as a way to inform people and start a conversation about police and the Fort Worth community.  Ronald Burns, a criminal justice professor at TCU, said the idea for the forum came about after the department joined together when tensions were high between the police and the community. Burns said the forum is an attempt to find a resolution to the issues at hand.“The faculty got together during one of our meetings during the height of all the tension, and we decided we wanted to do something,” Burns said. “What we do best is share knowledge, so we thought, ‘Let’s bring together professional people who are in the field and can share different viewpoints.’”While the AddRan College of Liberal Arts has hosted discussions in the past, this one is the first of its kind. The forum will focus on four topics: leveraging project partnerships, the challenges of building community relations and diversifying the police, officer involved shootings and deaths in police custody and police and their decision to use force. Open to all TCU faculty, staff and students, the forum has invited a panel of professionals to speak about the prominent issues that law enforcement is facing today.  Speakers include Lt. J.K. Driver, a special assignments coordinator with the Fort Worth Police Department, and Dr. Stephen Bishopp, associate director for research with the Caruth Police Institute and a sergeant from the Dallas Police Department. The panel will also consist of Sgt. Chris Gorrie, Officer Chad Scroggins, Officer Tracey Knight and Thomas Le Noir from the FWPD and chief civil rights prosecutor George Lewis. Burns said he thinks the panel is well-equipped to discuss this problem. “A lot of brilliant minds are speaking, and we hope in sharing information and putting minds together, we can contribute in our own way,” he said. The discussion will be held in the Kelly Center from 1-5 p.m.  Twitter The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Interfaith organization creating a safe space for all religions Twitter Campus Christian organization set to host the Awakening retreat TAGStext only + posts Alexis Biermanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexis-bierman/ Alexis Biermanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexis-bierman/ Some TCU Catholics consider election from a moral viewpoint Facebook Previous articleAlcohol violations reach all-time highNext articleMen’s basketball claims Global Sports Classic championship Alexis Bierman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Alexis Biermanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexis-bierman/ ReddIt Facebook Linkedin Alexis Bierman TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history last_img read more

County colleges told not to resume in-person classes this fall By BRIAN DAY Published on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 | 4:45 pm Community News Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek implored residents to wear masks on Wednesday as health officials reported 13 new cases of COVID-19 in the city and county officials announced colleges will not be able to resume in-person classes this fall.But city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian cautioned that the case count was “almost assuredly” low due to ongoing problems with the statewide electronic lab reporting system. No new deaths were reported.State officials said the data issue has been resolved, but the process of working through the backlog is ongoing. Meanwhile, Pasadena Public Health Department officials have been working to get better data directly from health care providers, according to Derderian.The city had seen a total of 2,146 reported novel coronavirus infections and 111 fatalities as of Wednesday.Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek issued a video statement Wednesday urging Pasadenans to make use of the only weapons we have against COVID-19.While restrictions on businesses and other activities have changed over time during the pandemic, “one thing has been pretty consistent,” Tornek said. “We know that until we have drugs that work, all we really have to fight the spread of the infections are social distancing, cloth face coverings, and good sanitation.”“The fact that wearing a cloth face covering has become controversial is really quite astonishing. I know a lot of people don’t like them, but the rules are simple and clear: You must wear them to slow the spread of the disease.”Officials have previously said the city was hoping to not have to issue citations to bring about compliance, but the possibility remains on the table.“We don’t want to fine people or occupy our police officers’ time with an enforcement burden, but you must really wear your face covering whenever you go out,” the mayor said. “Remember, we’re all in this together, and this is a simple and tangible way that each of us can do our part.”Huntington Hospital was treating 33 COVID-19 patients on Wednesday. Twenty-eight tests were pending.Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that schools and universities in the campus will not be able to resume in-person classes in the fall semester.“Colleges and universities in Los Angeles County may continue their essential operations, but most academic instruction must continue to be done via distance-learning,” county health officials said in a written statement.“Institutions may continue to offer in-person training and instruction only for students who are or will become part of the essential workforce and only for required activities that cannot be accomplished through virtual learning. All other academic instruction must continue to be done via distance-learning,” according to the statement. “Faculty and other staff may come to campus for the purpose of providing distance learning, and other activities related to the purposes above, as well as maintaining minimum basic operations.”Institutions were urged to “limit their on-campus student residency to only providing housing for students who have no alternative housing options,” the statement said. “Collegiate sports may only proceed in compliance with all the California Department of Public Health Specific Interim Guidance for Collegiate Athletics.”County health officials announced 2,428 new infections and 58 new deaths.“The number of new cases reported today includes about 700 backlog cases from the state,” county health officials said in a written statement. “We anticipate receiving additional backlog cases later this week.” Death and hospitalization rates were not affected by the problem, officials said.Seventy-one percent of Wednesday’s new cases involved people under 50 years old, health officials said.The county has reported a total of 214,197 novel coronavirus infections and 5,109 deaths since the onset of the pandemic in March.Officials reported 1,538 L.A. County residents were hospitalized with COVID-19 on Wednesday, with 32 percent of them being treated in intensive care units.“Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have suffered the loss of someone they love to COVID-19. As the number of deaths continue to rise, we join with others across the county to offer our heartfelt condolences,” said L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer.“I know that our decision to delay fully reopening colleges and universities is disheartening news for our students who were looking forward to life on campus. But this postponement means that we will continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 and get to the point where we can return to campus when rates of community transmission are lower,” Ferrer said.“Colleges and universities are an important driver of innovation, cultural vibrancy, and economic activity in the county,” she said.” At the same time, the very nature of the way that colleges and universities operate creates a significant risk of outbreaks of COVID-19 among students, faculty and staff. And these risks extend beyond campus into the broader community. That is why we have made the difficult, but necessary decision to limit the reopening of these important institutions.”California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced 11,645 new infections and 180 additional deaths in the state. But he added that 5,433 of the cases were newly detected, while the other 6, 212 were the result of the state catching up on its recent data backlog.In all, California had seen 586,056 cases of COVID-19 and 10,648 deaths, according to the California Department of Public Health.Officials said 5,442 patients were hospitalized with the virus statewide, with 1,699 of them — or 31 percent — in intensive care units.As of Wednesday, L.A. County accounted for 37 percent of California’s COVID-19 infections and 48 percent of the state’s fatalities. 28 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Protect your heart with a quick scanORMC, MCH offer heart health checkups

first_img Previous articleFormer heavyweight champion Leon Spinks dies at 67Next articleAP PHOTOS: Sistine Chapel key-keeper opens up after lockdown Digital AIM Web Support By Digital AIM Web Support – February 7, 2021 February is National Heart Month and to help get people’s attention about the risks of heart disease, both Odessa Regional Medical Center and the Medical Center Hospital are encouraging people to get a heart view scan. ORMC will be offering a heart view scan for a flat rate of $75 throughout this month while Medical Center Hospital usually offers the same rate year-round. A heart view scan is a non-invasive way to detect health problems before symptoms occur. The scan usually takes about 10 minutes and is performed on a 64-slice CT scanner. “Usually each year, this is easier for us to put this at the top of minds for people since it is National Heart Month,” Madison Tate, ORMC director of marketing and community relations, said. “People can get a quick look at their heart and make sure that everything is working well and find out if there’s any need for a follow up.” The tests do not require a physician’s order and no insurance will be filed. “The February promotion allows us to give people who don’t have insurance or typically not have this covered, a flat rate of $75. It’s not very common that you can get a flat rate for any kind of medical service so this is something that we like to push to encourage people and to take advantage of it.” Tate says ORMC usually holds this promotion each year and is hopeful that more people can become aware of it and take advantage of it. “Because it’s a little more cost effective, we’re hoping more people will jump on that and do something that they may not have done throughout the year,” Tate said. According to ORMC Chief Medical Officer Rohith Saravanan, the most important thing is to help people realize how important heart health is. “One of the things we try to help people recognize is the importance of taking care of their heart and give them a little encouragement to take care of their heart,” Saravanan said. “Nothing special about February other than the fact we can use it to bring heart to the top of minds so people can think about checking on their heart.” Saravanan said the process is basically a quick CT-scan. “We have a scanner that means it takes multiple slices through the tissue and help you see it really well. We put them through a cat scan of their heart and it takes 10 minutes to do.” This specific test looks for calcium deposits within the walls of the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle. “And when you see the calcium deposits, you’re talking about a hardened plaque,” Saravanan said. “A hardened plaque is one that can crack and that’s what usually causes an acute heart attack, one that requires immediate attention or otherwise it can cause severe damage to the heart or even death.” With the help of the multi-slice technology, Saravanan says they can get a pretty clear image of the beating heart and reconstruct it with a three-dimensional picture and look at all the other blood vessels that supply the heart and see which part has a high calcium score. “If you have a high calcium score, you have to follow it up with another appointment,” Saravanan said. “There are more tests that would come but the early detection can prevent you from getting worse and finding out you have a heart disease when you have a heart attack. That’s the worse time to find out. To prevent that is why we do these heart view scans.” Dr. Fernando Boccalandro of MCH also talked about the importance of getting a heart scan done as soon as possible. “As you know, heart disease still affects everyone and is the first cause of death in the U.S. and around the world,” Boccalandro said. “A heart scan can allow to detect a coronary disease early and classify a patient as a high-risk or a low-risk and we can estimate what measures we need to take to prevent or mitigate this problem if you have it.” One of the ways people can also do to keep their hearts healthy is by obtaining a healthy diet and exercising. “Heart health is in our hands,” Boccalandro said. “We can significantly modify the risks over time if we lead a heart-healthy diet. If we exercise and keep our weight under control then it can significantly decrease your risk over time. a lot of things that people need to remember is that they have the health in their hands. If they do the right measures, the risk is low.” For more information or to schedule an appointment at ORMC, call 432-582-8500. To book an appointment at MCH, call 432-640-2255.

In addition to the Delhi University, even the Ministry of Human Resource Development has been directed to submit an affidavit on modalities for ensuring easy access to PwD category students to examination centres for physical exams. While asking the Delhi University to conduct the physical examinations by September 14, the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad has further directed the Delhi University to submit details about how many students submitted their answer sheets for online Open Book Exams though emails so that a clear picture can be ascertained about the efficacy of the entire process. In today’s proceedings, the Delhi University informed the court that out of 38058 students who were expected to take the exams on August 10, 36663 students registered and 33957 students actually uploaded the answer sheets on the portal. For the PwD category, 358 students were expected to take the exams, out of which 308 registered and 258 students actually attempted the exam. ‘These figures do not include those students who sent their answer sheets through email and did not upload them on the portal’, DU informed the court. Appearing on the behalf of the Grievance Redressal Committee, Mr BB Gupta informed the court that the Delhi University did not share the passwords of the grievance emails sent by the students. It was further informed by Mr Gupta, that despite the Committee having its meeting on the Indepence Day as well, the Delhi University did not share the details of the Grievance Officers with the Committee. The court expressed its disappointment with the fact that the Grievance Redressal Committee was not allowed to function properly despite the orders of the court. The court pulled up the University and said: ‘Why are you maintaining so much secrecy around the passwords? Why are you frustrating the cause of the Grievance Redressal Committee? Should we issue contempt notice to your officers?’ When the court directed the Delhi University to immediately send the details of the Grievance Officers to the Committee, the same was done during the course of the proceedings. Petitioner Prateek Sharma also informed the court that many students are unable to apply for Post Graduate courses as the University has not provided them with mark sheets for the fifth semester. The court was also informed that many other Universities are demanding provisional certificates from students who are seeking admissions in Post Graduate courses. In light of these facts, the court directed the Delhi University to provide digital marks sheets to the students for the past semesters. In addition to this, the court directed the University Grants Commission to issue an advisory to all Universities to not to demand provisional certificates for admissions in Postgraduate courses as according to UGC’s own guidelines, Universities are granted time till end of September to finish exams for Undergraduate courses. For students applying to Universities abroad, the court directed the Delhi University to make an Email ID for students who have received provisional admission in foreign universities but can’t submit provisional certificates due to delay in declaration of results. These students will send a mail to the said ID indicating their cause, and subsequently, the University will send ‘Letter of Request’ to all these foreign Universities requesting them to postpone the requirement of submitting provisional certificates in light of delay caused in declaration of results.

While staying the said order, the Single Bench of Justice Navin Chawla has adjourned the hearing on merits till October 16. Filed by Association of Healthcare Providers, the petition challenges the September 12 order of the Delhi Government on the ground that no prior consultation was held with private hospitals to ascertain the demand-supply situation of critical care beds. It is further argued that ignoring the needs of other severely sick patients requiring critical care and ICU management at these private hospitals, is gross injustice. ‘Reserving 80% beds in ICU will deny urgent care to seriously ill patients, requiring vital surgical intervention and intensive care’, the petition states. While citing that other States who are similarly situated have not passed such an order, the Petitioner has argued that the order to reserve 80% in ICU for COVID patients, over and above beds already reserved for them, violates the fundamental right to access medical facilities of other critically ill patients.
