It is a 24/7 initiative that is designed to provide adequate clinical support required for precious deliveries done in any of the hospitals which themselves may not have sufficient neonatology infrastructure to handle extreme pre-term deliveries. The service was launched on 25th September, 2019.Requests for retrievals from few hospitals and parents, where the facility to cater to premature babies was not available, led to the launch of this service, which further helped in channelising our efforts to consciously reach out to more hospitals and offer our services for babies in distress.All the units of Cloudnine would be taking part in the senior consultant rota although the service is currently operational at Cloudnine Jayanagar and Cloudnine HRBR. With 80 beds, a team of 20 neonatologists and more than 100 specialised NICU-trained nursing staff spread across six hospitals, NETS offers advanced care – on time.Since December 1, 2019, an outrage of neonatal deaths in India were reported from six government hospitals in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Among the factors that have been proved detrimental to child survival are lack of education in the mother, malnutrition (more than half of Indian women are anaemic), age of the mother at the time of birth, spacing and whether the child is born at home or in a facility.Despite several efforts, one area that has been a neglected subject of attention of our policymakers, government and industry at large is the neonatal transport, in other words providing transport services and right medical care to pre-term babies who are not getting the required clinical treatment they deserve at the time of their birth due to lack of quality NICU infrastructure.

Aftershocks follow Southern California earthquake

first_imgHomeNewsEnvironmentAftershocks follow Southern California earthquake Jul. 06, 2019 at 4:59 amEnvironmentNewsAftershocks follow Southern California earthquakeAssociated Press2 years agoAftershocksearthquakeKern County Fire Chief David WittMayor Peggy BreedenRidgecrestsprawling Navy installationthe Mojave Desert Aftershocks from Southern California’s largest earthquake in 20 years rumbled beneath the Mojave Desert on Friday as authorities tallied damage in the sparsely populated region.The strongest aftershock thus far hit shortly after 4 a.m., registering magnitude 5.4 and awakening people all the way to the coast.Thursday’s 6.4 magnitude quake struck at midmorning about 150 miles (240 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles, near the town of Ridgecrest and a sprawling Navy installation.Multiple injuries and two house fires were reported in the town of 28,000. Emergency crews dealt with small vegetation fires, gas leaks and reports of cracked roads, said Kern County Fire Chief David Witt.He said 15 patients were evacuated from the Ridgecrest Regional Hospital as a precaution.Ridgecrest Mayor Peggy Breeden said that utility workers were assessing broken gas lines and turning off gas where necessary.Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake said in a statement late Thursday that no injuries were reported and so far all buildings had been found to be intact but assessments were continuing across its 1,875 square miles (4,856 square kilometers). Its workforce was ordered to not report on Friday.A Ridgecrest senior center was holding a July 4th event when the big quake hit and everyone made it out shaken up but without injuries, she said.“Oh, my goodness, there’s another one (quake) right now,” Breeden said on live television as an aftershock struck.Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency for Kern County. The declaration means that the state will help the county and municipalities in it with emergency aid and recovery efforts.Breeden noted at a news conference that other nearby governments have offered to help the recovery effort.President Donald Trump said he was fully briefed on the earthquake and that it “all seems to be very much under control!”California Highway Patrol Lt. John Williams said officials found cracks on several roads in the county, but overpasses and underpasses were in good shape.“It almost gave me a heart attack,” said Cora Burke, a waitress at Midway Cafe in Ridgecrest, of the big jolt. “It’s just a rolling feeling inside the building, inside the cafe and all of a sudden everything started falling off the shelf, glasses, the refrigerator and everything in the small refrigerator fell over.”Video posted online of a liquor store in Ridgecrest showed the aisles filled with broken wine and liquor bottles, knocked down boxes and other groceries strewn on the floor. Flames were seen shooting out of one home in the community.Lucy Jones, a seismologist with the California Institute of Technology’s seismology lab, said the earthquake was the strongest since a 7.1 quake struck another area of the Mojave Desert on October 16, 1999.“This has been an extremely quiet abnormal time,” Jones said. “This type of earthquake is much more normal … The long term average is probably once every five or 10 years somewhere in Southern California.”Jones said that the 6.4 quake was preceded by a magnitude 4.2 temblor about a half hour earlier.“This is an isolated enough location that that’s going to greatly reduce the damage,” she said.There was little likelihood the quake raised the risk of a quake on the mighty San Andreas Fault, the sleeping giant that runs through much of California and is expected to be the source of the feared “Big One,” the scientists said.“We have never seen a foreshock more than 10 kilometers, 6 miles, away from its mainshock and this is substantially farther than that to the San Andreas,” Jones said.The quake was detected by California’s new ShakeAlert system and it provided 48 seconds of warning to the seismology lab well before the shaking arrived at Caltech in the Los Angeles suburb of Pasadena but it did not trigger a public warning through an app recently made available in Los Angeles County.USGS seismologist Robert Graves said the ShakeAlert system worked properly. He said it calculated an intensity level for the Los Angeles area that was below the threshold for a public alert. The limits are intended to avoid false alarms.Rodriguez reported from San Francisco.

Cancer Death Rate Drop Spares 1.5 Million Americans

first_img“The continuing drops we’re seeing in cancer mortality are reason to celebrate, but not to stop,” said John R. Seffrin, PhD, chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society.The overall cancer death rate rose during most of the 20th century, peaking in 1991, largely due to lung cancer deaths among men who smoked.According to the most recent data, lung cancer death rates declined 36% between 1990 and 2011 among males and 11% between 2002 and 2011 among females due to reduced tobacco use.Death rates for breast cancer (among women) are down more than one-third (35%) from peak rates, while prostate and colorectal cancer death rates are each down by nearly half (47%).Story tip from KathrynAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThe American Cancer Society’s annual cancer statistics report finds that a 22% drop in cancer mortality over two decades led to the avoidance of more than 1.5 million cancer deaths that would have occurred if peak rates had persisted.Cancer death rates have declined in every state, with the most progress recorded in the Northeast.  The steady decline in the death rate for the four major cancer sites — lung, breast, prostate, and colon — is the result of fewer Americans smoking, as well as advances in cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment.last_img read more

Nashiro crowned WBA super flyweight champ

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Nashiro landed a series of clean lefts and rights to take the lead on the judges’ scorecards in the early rounds at Higashi Osaka Arena, while Castillo fought back with effective counter punches and seized control of the match heading into the decisive round.After Castillo took the eighth and ninth rounds, Panamanian referee Guillermo Perez stepped in to halt the fight when the bleeding from a gash over the champion’s left eye picked up, dashing his hopes of retaining the belt in his fifth title defense.“I wondered before the fight if I could be given another shot at a world title if I fail to win this time. And I’m satisfied with the fact that I beat such a strong champion,” Nashiro said after improving his record to 8-0, including five knockouts.The match was fought evenly on the judges’ cards through nine rounds — 86-86, 85-87 and 87-85. Yet Castillo praised Nashiro for putting up a brave fight and Castillo made no complaints about the decision to stop the fight.“I felt no pain but I was bleeding severely,” he said.“I don’t have any complaints about the referee’s decision. Nashiro was brave and deserved to be the winner.” center_img HIGASHI-OSAKA – Unbeaten Japanese boxer Nobuo Nashiro wrested the WBA super flyweight title from Mexican champion Martin Castillo with a technical knockout Saturday.Nashiro, 24, captured the crown in his eighth professional fight, matching the shortest time in which a Japanese boxer has claimed a world title since his debut, when the referee stopped the fight 1 minute, 2 seconds into the 10th round of the scheduled 12-rounder.last_img read more

Funniest Rick Pitino memes and tweets on escort scandal at Louisville

first_imgRick PitinoRick Pitino is under the most severe threat to his celebrated tenure at the University of Louisville after former players and top recruits said his staff paid strippers and escorts as recruiting devices to convince them to attend the basketball-rich school.A former escort spoke exclusively to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” about how she helped coordinate stripper and escort parties inside the dormitories at U of L in order to convince blue-chip high school talents and prep All-Americans to choose Cardinal nation over other suitor schools.Five former Louisville players and recruits confirmed allegations that a former member of the basketball staff paid for escorts to dance at parties they attended, ESPN reports, and one former player said he had sex with a dancer after the staff member paid her.Prostitue-turned-author Katina PowellThe lid was blown off the program after a former escort, Katina Powell, wrote the barnstorming book, Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen. Powell details in her memoir that she was paid $10,000, per party, by former Louisville director of basketball operations Andre McGee to provide escorts to dance and have sex with recruits and players between 2010 and 2014. She said she organized at least two dozen of such parties during this time period.Where McGee (and others who paid for these parties) got the money is still a mystery and under investigation by the NCAA.Pitino, long a Hall of Fame-caliber and controversial coach, denies vehemently that he had any knowledge that such activities were popping off under his watch. But already many pundits and fans predict that his Titanic-sized image and program has hit the iceberg and will eventually sink to the depths of ignominy.Fans are also weighing in on the growing scandal, albeit in the most hilarious and witty ways via social media. Take a look at the funniest Rick Pitino memes and tweets about “hookers for hoops.” //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsSo it looks as if Rick Pitino and his players are the real Papa Johns #Louisville— Steven Shaw ℹ (@czechov) October 20, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jslast_img read more

Taking the Nelson Mandela Route

first_imgThe Nelson Mandela Route starts in the Eastern Cape, in King William’s Town, which began as a London-based Missionary Station in 1826 and provides a backdrop to early European influences in a struggle region of British, Boer and Xhosa conflicts.The town’s Amathole Museum has a Xhosa Gallery, Missionary Museum and German Settlers display. The grave of Black Consciousness leader Steve Biko is also in the town.The Mandela Route moves through Bhisho, home of the provincial government, and takes a scenic drive on the N2 to Mthatha, which hosts the Nelson Mandela Museum.The museum is a collection of heritage sectors spread across three locations: Qunu, Mveso and Mthatha. A display reflecting the life and times of Mandela can be found at the Bhunga Building section of the Nelson Mandela Museum in Mthatha.Mandela has received thousands of gifts from presidents, groups and ordinary people. Accepted on behalf of the people of South Africa, they are in safe-keeping at the museum for the benefit and appreciation of the nation. Artefacts ranging from children’s letters to bejeweled camel covers say more about the donors than their famous recipient.Scenes from Mandela’s childhoodThe second sector of the museum is the Community Museum and Youth & Heritage Centre in the village of Qunu, where Mandela spent his childhood.Here, tourists can view the remains of young Nelson’s primary school, the rock he used to slide down with friends, and the graveyard where his son, daughter and parents are buried – all set in the rolling hills of Pondoland, where Mandela grazed his family’s cattle.Alongside the N2 is Mandela’s current home, where he entertains a steady stream of people from the neighbouring village and holds an annual party for children on his birthday. A tunnel running under the N2 allows visitors to “cross” the road in safety.A thatched open-air museum at Mveso – the third sector of the Nelson Mandela Museum – shelters a photographic exhibition depicting significant moments in Mandela’s life. Nearby are the remains of the homestead where Mandela was born and raised.Free guided tours of all three sectors of the Nelson Mandela Museum can be arranged via the museum in Mthatha.The Mandela Route then moves back to East London, which has a museum housing a superb collection of southern Nguni beadwork.Staying on the trail of the man himself, one has to leave the Eastern Cape, as he did.Mandela in JohannesburgThe Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg is a state-of-the-art tribute to the rise and fall of apartheid. Twenty-two exhibition areas take the visitor on an emotional journey through a state-sanctioned system based on racial discrimination.It was put together on a seven-hectare site by a team of curators, film-makers, historians, designers and architects. Film footage, photographs, text panels and artefacts depict the epic saga of apartheid.Mandela’s humble house in Orlando West, Soweto has been turned into the Mandela Family Museum. It houses an assortment of memorabilia, paintings, photographs and collection of honorary doctorates bestowed on Mandela from universities around the world.This matchbox home at 8115 Ngakane Street was the abode that Mandela shared with his first wife, Evelyn Ntoko Mase. She moved out after their divorce in 1957, and when Winnie Madikizela married Mandela in 1958, she then moved into this Soweto home.Mandela seldom stayed here as he was living life on the run as the “black pimpernel”. Nearby is the Hector Pieterson Memorial to the schoolboy shot during the June 16 riots of 1976, as well as the home of Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu.Mandela’s larger-than-life character and famous “Madiba jive” are also captured in an outsize 6 metre statue at the upmarket shopping destination Nelson Mandela Square (formerly Sandton Square) – a prime photo opportunity for tourists.This famous builder of bridges between people has also had the largest cable-stayed bridge in southern Africa named after him. It links the Johannesburg central business district of Newtown and the northern parts of the city.Robben IslandFinally – or firstly? – to Robben Island, off the coastline of Cape Town.The famous prison has incarcerated indigenous African leaders, Muslim leaders from the East Indies, Dutch and British settler soldiers and civilians, women and anti-apartheid activists, including South Africa’s first democratic President, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.Today it is a museum which acts as a focal point for South African heritage. Ex-political prisoners act as tour guides in a place of exile and imprisonment which epitomises the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.last_img read more

Apple Introduces iTunes 8 and New iPods

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… frederic lardinois new iPod Shufflepush notification for iPhoneone more thing…TV ShowsWith regards to TV shows on iTunes, Apple announced the availability of a select number of shows in HD, including Monk, The Office, and Heroes. Apple also announced the return of NBC to the iTunes store.iTunes 8The user interface of iTunes 8 only received minor cosmetic updates such as a flat album cover view and one-click automated playlist creation. The major addition to iTunes is the ‘Genius’ feature, that will make buying recommendation and suggest playlists based on your buying behavior and the music already in your library.Apple also announced that iTunes will start sending data about the songs you listen to and your music preferences back to Apple. This is an opt-in service and, according to Jobs, completely anonymous, but privacy advocates are surely going to take a very close look at this.iPodsClassic: The iPod Classic has been cut down to one model with 120GB. According to Jobs, most users only considered the 80GB model anyway.Nano: The Nano received a major design overhaul, with a curved glass front and a larger screen and a built-in accelerometer. The UI for the Nano is now similar to that of the iPhone/iPod touch.One nifty new feature: Thanks to the accelerometer, you can now just shake your nano and it will automatically go into shuffle mode.The nano can now play 24h of music and 4h of video.The new nano will cost $149 for 8GB and $199 for 16GB and should ship in the next few days. It’s available in a whole rainbow of colors:blue, purple, orange, green, and pink. It also looks as if the new headphones for the iPod’s have microphones, though it is not immediately clear why. We assume that all the iPods now have voice recording built-in by default.Ipod Touch: Apple also introduced a new iPod touch, which keeps the same design as the old one, but is a bit thinner and has a stainless steel rim with integrated volume controls on the side (hey – I want that for the iPhone as well!) and built-in speakers.Nike+ now comes standard with the iPod touch, though you would still need a transmitter for your shoes.According to Apple, the iPod touch can play 36hrs of music and 6hrs of video and the price points are: 8GB, $229, 16GB for $299, and a 32GB for $399.App StoreAccording to Jobs, 100 million apps have been downloaded from the store in only 60 days.Games: Apple is clearly trying to push the iPod/iPhone as a mobile gaming platform. Jobs stressed that there are now over 700 games available for the iPhone/iPod touch platform. To drive this point home, Phil Schiller demoed Spore Origins for the iPod (our review of Spore for the PC was mostly negative, but the iPhone game has gotten rave reviews so far). Phil also demoed ‘Real Soccer 2009’ and ‘Need for Speed,’ which both look like they are very good games as well.2.1 FirmwareThe updated firmware is available for the iPod touch for $9.99.For the iPhone, Apple promises that this updated fixes the problems with dropped calls and crashes in Safari and other applications that have plagued the phone from the beginning. iPhone users can also expect better battery life, though Jobs did not go into any specifics. Apple also promises that backups will now be considerably faster (right now, some users are experiencing backups that can take hours).The update will be available on Friday.SummaryOverall, this was a bit of a lackluster event. While the updates to iTunes and the ‘Genius’ feature are interesting, the updates to the iPod line were, at best, incremental. The new look of the iPod nano is nice (though surely some will complain about it as well), but also nothing too revolutionary. Apple, of course, is in a hard spot, where it is constantly expected to surprise us. This event didn’t hold many surprises, especially because 90% of the news had already leaked before the even even started.One thing that did surprise us was that Apple did not make any announcements about the availability of push notifications for the iPhone in the next release of the firmware. It could still be part of the update, but so far, there is no indication that this will indeed be the case. Tags:#Features#news#web Related Posts At Apple’s “Let’s Rock” special event today, Steve Jobs introduced a new version of iTunes, the availability of HD TV shows for the American market, a new design for the iPod Nano and iPod touch, as well as a major update for the iPhone/iPod touch firmware. According to Jobs, Apple has sold 160 million iPods worldwide and now holds 73.4% of the market in the US.center_img Some things we didn’t see: Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Lautaro: ‘This cannot happen’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Lautaro Martinez was visibly upset after a 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund. “Inter were a completely different team after the break. This cannot happen.” The Argentine is the first Inter player to score in three consecutive Champions League games since Samuel Eto’o reached four in 2010. He had opened the scoring, followed by a Matias Vecino goal, but the 2-0 lead at half-time made little difference. “We did really well in the first half, but were a completely different team in the second. Perhaps we showed a lack of maturity, as we changed entirely after the break,” Lautaro told Sky Sport Italia. “It wasn’t physical, it was a lack of concentration and the drop-off in intensity more than anything else. We were leading 2-0, we cannot lose 3-2. It cannot happen. We need to mature and grow to play at this level. “We have not lost hope of qualifying, we’ve been trailing since the start in this group, but we can do it.”last_img read more
