Please enter your email address here Reggie Connell Reply  From Florida Hospital Apopka Diane V Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 April 30, 2018 at 10:50 am Here’s a closer look at comfort care, who it’s for and how it can provide solace for patients and families facing a life-limiting illness.What Is Comfort Care?Comfort care is a form of specialized medical care that focuses on easing the symptoms of a disease as a patient nears the end of life. Like hospice care, comfort care may be administered when curative treatment is no longer an option, or when a patient decides to forego further treatment.Patients can opt to receive comfort care in a hospital, in a specialized medical setting or in the comfort of home. A patient’s individual comfort care team may comprise his or her primary doctor, nurses, specialists and other care providers, all working together to provide relief from pain, discomfort, and stress.Sometimes, the services provided during comfort care extend beyond the medical. Emotional counseling, pet therapy, massage therapy and music therapy may all bring comfort and joy to an ailing patient. Spiritual guidance can be an instrumental component for people of faith, lending support and insight during a patient’s final journey.Who is a Candidate for Comfort Care?Any person, of any age, facing any life-limiting illness can receive comfort care. This may include cancer, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.Many doctors recommend this symptom-focused form of care in the early stages of a serious illness when curative treatment is still possible. At this stage, it is called palliative care. Both comfort care and palliative care focus on easing discomfort and improving quality of life for the duration of disease or illness.How is Comfort Care Paid For?Comfort care services are typically covered under Medicare Part A, Medicaid, and most private insurances, making it widely accessible. This benefit generally covers the care team’s services, medications, supplies, and equipment related to a patient’s life-limiting illness.There may still be co-pays, co-insurance or a deductible under insurance plans, but a patient’s individual comfort care team will work with the patient, family and insurance providers to ensure he or she receives all available benefits.Why Is Comfort Care Important?The compassion at the heart of comfort care is a special gift during these most challenging days of one’s life. With a comprehensive team of care professionals working together to provide physical, emotional and spiritual support, a patient is better able to approach his or her death with dignity, grace, and peace of mind.For some people with a long-term, incurable illness, the physical and emotional toll of treatment may at some point begin to outweigh the benefits. It’s one of the most difficult decisions many of us will ever have to face. But when that time comes, comfort care can take over from curative treatment to help patients live life as fully as possible until the end. Comfort care can provide relief for the family or caregivers of a terminally ill patient, freeing them up from the practical tasks of caregiving as well as the stress of seeing their loved one suffer.Nothing can make death easy. But with the body and mind relieved of pain, stress, and discomfort, ailing patients are better able to spend their final days enjoying the people and things that are most important in life. Reply Diane, I am truly sorry about your mom entering comfort care. Is she nearby you all, or is she back in NY? I know that it is hard on you all, you and your sisters, but you all are doing right, to respect your mom’s wishes. You are lucky to have your sisters to lean on each other, throughout the ups and downs of your lives. I sincerely hope your mom will be comfortable. Every morning I wake up and turn on my phone, and it states LG, life is good, but there are plenty of times, I think to myself, life is hard. Thank you, Commissioner Velazquez, for sharing such a personal story with us. Our prayers will be with you and your family. Gov.

British Red Cross to invest £12 million in its charity shops

first_imgBritish Red Cross to invest £12 million in its charity shops The British Red Cross is to spend £12 million over the next five years to improve its charity shops. It plans to open 20 new shops in commercially viable areas each year until 2012, refit 140 existing shops, and close about 70 of the least profitable shops.Sue Azzopardi, British Red Cross Head of Trading, said that the investment is intended to double its charity shops’ profits to £8 million by 2012. “We are right at the beginning stage of implementing the retail investment plan”, she said, “but are already starting to see the benefits – British Red Cross shops are making more sales overall and selling a wider variety of goods”.The charity reports that shops undergoing minor refits have already seen an average profit rise of 15%, and shops undergoing major refits have achieved a 17.5% increase in profit.The British Red Cross Trading Department currently generates an income of £23 million and profit of £4 million. It employs over 600 staff and engages over 6,000 volunteers. This makes it responsible for approximately 11% of total British Red Cross fundraising.As part of the investment the charity will also be introducing electronic tills, networked via the web, into all shops. This should streamline the management of information in shops and give a greater commercial focus.There will also be a renewed campaign to recruit Red Cross volunteers, both to Red Cross shops and into a variety of service delivery roles across the charity.The charity has today introduced a new salary structure for all shop staff consisting of a base salary and additional earnings related to the income of their shop. The charity says that this brings its shops into line with current practice across charity and mainstream retail sectors.Funds are predominately generated by goods donated and sold through British Red Cross charity shops, with additional funding coming from greeting cards, independent living products (ILP) and bought-in goods (BIG).www.redcross.org.uk Howard Lake | 1 July 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Trading About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Kettler Elected to Board of Directors for NASDA, Urges Passage of…

first_img Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Sep 17, 2019 Kettler Elected to Board of Directors for NASDA, Urges Passage of USMCA SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Kettler Elected to Board of Directors for NASDA, Urges Passage of USMCA Facebook Twitter Kettler Elected to Board of Directors for NASDA; Urges Passage of USMCAIndiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler spent much of last week in Albuquerque, New Mexico meeting with his counterparts from across the country at the annual National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) meeting. At the meeting, Kettler was elected to serve on the board of directors as an At-Large candidate.Kettler says he’s excited to represent Indiana on the NASDA board.“They’ve become much more engaged in Washington the last several years as a representative for the various state departments of agriculture across the country…from an Indiana perspective, why should we be involved? We’re so diverse in our agriculture…we obviously have a strong livestock component, certainly a strong crop component in a lot of ways, and so by being involved in NASDA, that allows us to also learn from my counterparts across the country and some of the issues and concerns that they’re dealing with.”Trade was a hot topic at the meeting as the group continues to urge Congress to ratify USMCA. Kettler says all of us in the industry know getting USMCA done is important.“We’ve got an agreement, at least in principle, with Japan. I think that’s going to get done. We all know the importance of that. If we can get USMCA across the finish line, between those two pieces it gives our industry a lot of stability in the markets. Not only for crops, certainly for livestock as well.”China, though, is a different story.“It’s my belief, in talking with people in Washington, D.C., talking to my counterparts in NASDA last week, we all understand China is very complicated and it’s not going to happen overnight. So, I believe if we get USMCA passed, get an agreement with Japan, we provide some significant stability in agriculture that we need, and then we’ll be able to get the China piece eventually figured out.”In addition to serving on the NASDA Board of Directors, Kettler will also continue to serve as the Chair of the Plant Agriculture & Pesticide Regulation Committee that focuses on, obviously, pesticides, but also biotech regulations.

Internal police documents reveal strategy with foreign journalists

first_img Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes August 21, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Internal police documents reveal strategy with foreign journalists Follow the news on China Organisation June 2, 2021 Find out more News News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison to go further News ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures April 27, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information RSF_en Although Chinese police have attacked or manhandled around 10 foreign journalists since the start of the Beijing games, they were told not to obstruct the international press in directives sent to police stations at the end of July, of which Reporters Without Borders has obtained a copy. These directives nonetheless clearly instruct them to investigate the Chinese who talk to the foreign media, and another directive on 7 August (also obtained by Reporters Without Borders) orders them to deal quickly with religious demonstrations.”The rules for the foreign press adopted in January 2007 were simple and explicit – freedom of movement and freedom to interview,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Chinese police documents obtained by Reporters Without Borders show that the police were indeed ordered to let foreign journalists work, but they were also ordered to investigate the Chinese who told them embarrassing things.”The press freedom organisation added: “The recent arrests of Chinese who wanted to stage demonstrations or express themselves during the Olympic Games were examples of this desire on the part of the authorities to target their own citizens rather than the thousands of foreign journalists.”Reporters Without Borders is releasing three Chinese police documents on official strategy towards the foreign media. While the aim of these documents is to ensure that the thousands of accredited foreign journalists in Beijing are free to conduct interviews, they also ask the police to prevent non-accredited journalists from working and above all to investigate the Chinese who talk to the press. This suggests there could be reprisals after the games, when all the journalists have gone.Dated 25 July and entitled “Four directives for handling foreign journalists,” the first document asks the police not to block their camera lenses (1), not to damage their equipment (2), not to confiscate their memory cards (3) and not to investigate when they are involved in minor offences (4).Reporters Without Borders knows of several cases in which these directives were clearly violated. Uniformed officers physically prevented Hong Kong journalists from filming a crowd getting out of hand during the sale of tickets for the games on 25 July. Reporter John Ray of Britain’s ITN was arrested by Beijing police officers while covering a demonstration by pro-Tibet activists on 13 August. He was forcibly restrained for 20 minutes although he identified himself as journalist, while his cameraman was prevented from filming the arrest of the protesters.Police destroyed material and equipment of a photographer with the London-based Guardian newspaper. And in Xinjiang, Associated Press photographers were forced to delete the photos they had taken.The second document is entitled “Eight directives for not intervening when a foreign journalist is interviewing a Chinese.” It tells police not to intervene if the journalist is accredited (1), if the journalist is not accredited but is not asking political questions (2), if the person agrees to be interviewed (3), if the journalist asks about a third country (4), at news conferences given by foreign organisations that have permission (5), if the journalist is asking about sensitive matters but the interviewee is not causing people to gather and disrupt public order (6), if the interviewee talks about subjects such as Tibet, Xinjiang, Taiwan and Falun Gong or criticises the Party or government but is not behaving outrageously (7), if a journalist photographs or films policemen without disrupting their work (8).As regards point 7, the directive tells the police to “speak to the interviewee in accordance with Chinese legislation and to follow and monitor the journalist.” There have been more than ten cases of Chinese being arrested after trying to alert international public opinion to abuses they have suffered. Two Beijing women in their late 70s were sentenced to a year of reeducation through work on 17 August for asking permission to demonstrate during the games, while Zhang Wei, a former resident of Beijing’s Qianmen district, was arrested on 9 August after complaining to foreign journalists about the way she was rehoused.Reporters Without Borders has seen that, during protests by Christian or pro-Tibet foreigners in Beijing, the authorities prefer to let police disguised as young patriots or members of civilian surveillance groups intervene rather than directly arrest the demonstrators.At the same time, the public security department’s campaign to intimidate Beijing human rights activists before the Olympic Games enabled the authorities to sideline these spokesmen for social, religious and political demands. More than 40 of them were put under house arrest, forced to leave Beijing or forced to go into hiding for fear of reprisals.The third document is an analysis by the Criminal Affairs Bureau of three incidents involving pro-Tibet activists, Christians and a delinquent. Directives tell the police that the priority is to carry out a thorough investigation and avoid bad publicity. The Criminal Affairs Bureau recommends arresting foreign demonstrators and deporting them as quickly as possible. The police are told to do everything possible to “depoliticise” their actions by stressing the public order consequences to the public.Point 4 of the directives tells the Beijing police to deal with “religious cases as quickly as possible.” They are told to “keep the crowd at a distance, devise all sorts of ploys to defuse the situation and immediately inform the Religious Affairs Department.”Read the directives on www.rsf.org News Although Chinese police have manhandled around 10 foreign journalists since the start of the Beijing games, they were told not to obstruct them in directives sent to police stations at the end of July, of which Reporters Without Borders has obtained a copy. These directives nonetheless clearly instruct them to investigate the Chinese who talk to the foreign media. March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Intelligence service seizes Arab-language daily in latest act of censorship

first_img Coronavirus infects press freedom in Africa News January 24, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Intelligence service seizes Arab-language daily in latest act of censorship SudanAfrica Receive email alerts Read in Arabic (بالعربية)Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the seizure of the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Sudani by Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS), the latest act of media censorship in Sudan. Fourteen thousand copies of the pro-government daily were seized two days ago, without any reason being given. The newspaper, once independent and critical of the government, was bought by a member of the ruling National Congress Party and ever since has reflected the political views of its owner. “Media censorship remains widespread in Sudan,” Reporters Without Borders said. “In 2012, we recorded the seizures of 20-plus newspapers by the intelligence and security services. The latter have stepped up their activities and intensified their onslaught on freedom of information. Pro-government newspapers, which had previously escaped censorship, are now targets too, and forced to exercise self-censorship.” Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent Photo : Ashraz Shazly / AFP Related documents cp_soudan_24012013_ar-2.pdfPDF – 122.07 KB April 6, 2020 Find out more Organisation News News RSF_en April 10, 2020 Find out more Sudan : Press freedom still in transition a year after Omar al-Bashir’s removal SudanAfrica to go further Follow the news on Sudan News The intelligence and security services offered no explanation for the seizure of Al-Sudani, but political developments appeared to be at the root of their action.

The government subsequently took action against its opponents, with the intelligence and security services banning the media from reporting anything about the agreement signed at the Kampala meeting.Sudan is 170th of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders, and sits firmly among the 10 countries that show the least regard for freedom of information.

Government shuts down Al-Jazeera offices in Baghdad

Interior minister Falah al-Naqib told the US TV network CNN that the 7 August order was aimed at protecting Iraqis and that the government did not want Al-Jazeera or anyone else endangering civil peace in Iraq. The minister had said a few days earlier that some stations were encouraging kidnapping by showing pictures of hostages under threat of execution. Reporters Without Borders strongly protested against a month-long ban in February on Al-Jazeera covering the activities of the then transitional Governing Council. The Council had also shut down the local operations of the satellite TV station Al-Arabiya on 24 November last year until it promised in writing not to encourage terrorism.center_img December 16, 2020 Find out more Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News RSF_en to go further RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa February 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
