Los pediatras y la Organización de Defensa del Niño hacen eco del requisito de la Administración Wolf sobre el uso de máscaras en niños

first_imgLos pediatras y la Organización de Defensa del Niño hacen eco del requisito de la Administración Wolf sobre el uso de máscaras en niños July 27, 2020 Press Release,  Public Health En el día de la fecha, los pediatras de la Academia Estadounidense de Pediatría y una organización de defensa de niños están valorando la importancia del uso de máscaras en toda la población, incluidos los niños mayores de dos años. Esta guía refleja la del Gobernador Tom Wolf y la Secretaria de Salud la Dra. Rachel Levine como una medida de mitigación obligatoria para detener la propagación de la COVID-19 en el estado.“Vimos el aumento reciente de casos en el condado de Allegheny y debido a que todos usamos máscaras, practicamos el distanciamiento físico y la higiene de manos, los casos están disminuyendo”, dijo William Keough, MD, MSc, FAA, Copresidente, PA Chapter, Academia Estadounidense de Pediatría, Comité de Defensa, Director Médico, UPMC Health Plan. “Usar una máscara al estar fuera de casa junto con la higiene de manos, toser en el pliegue del codo y practicar el distanciamiento físico son maneras científicamente comprobadas desde hace décadas de disminuir la propagación de una infección para todas las personas mayores de 2 años. Por la salud de todos, haga su parte para detener la propagación de este virus mortal”.“Un informe reciente en la revista científica Nature evaluó el uso de máscaras faciales para prevenir la transmisión de virus respiratorios en más de 245 niños y adultos”, dijo Trude Haecker, MD, FAAP, Presidente, Capítulo de PA, Academia Estadounidense de Pediatría y pediatra general en Philadelphia. “Este estudio aleatorizado concluyó que las máscaras quirúrgicas pueden prevenir la transmisión de los coronavirus y virus de la influenza. La PA-AAP recomienda que todos los niños de 2 años en adelante usen máscaras faciales en todos los lugares donde no se pueda mantener el distanciamiento social, incluso al ir las compras, al consultorio del pediatra o al asistir a la escuela este otoño en base a la decisión que tome su distrito escolar local”.“A pesar de la peligrosidad de este virus, somos muy afortunados de poder vencer a este asesino con soluciones simples, de bajo costo e indoloras, como las máscaras faciales y el lavado de manos”, dijo Donna Cooper, Directora Ejecutiva de Ciudadanos Públicos para Niños y Jóvenes (PCCY, por sus siglas en inglés). Trágicamente, este asesino obstinado ya tomó la vida de algunos niños en edad preescolar. Por su bien y por la vida de quienes los rodean, los niños mayores de dos años deben usar una máscara cuando están en contacto con personas ajenas a su familia. La experiencia de primera mano también nos dice en PCCY que los niños también se sienten cómodos cuando ven que pueden contribuir para proteger a su familia y su comunidad de la COVID”.Encuentre las Preguntas frecuentes en la orden sobre el uso de máscaras de la Secretaria de Salud aquí.Encuentre apoyo para la respuesta de la Administración Wolf a la COVID-19 de parte de exgobernadores aquí y de expertos en políticas de salud pública aquí.View this information in English.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Agony of Defeat

first_imgHow many of you remember the old sport show called Wide World of Sports?  It was on long before anybody heard of ESPN.  The “agony of defeat” was exemplified by a skier falling off the end of a ski jump and crashing. This was the beginning of each show.  The “agony of defeat” could easily be seen because the skier was obviously hurt by the accident.  How about the emotional part of a defeat?Athletes put a lot of effort in training into their sport these days.  Some are naturals and win all the time.  How about the young boy/girl who works just as hard but comes in out of the awards each time?  It takes a good coaching staff and family support to keep these young athletes from getting depressed.  If you were ever an athlete, I am sure you remember certain defeats more than a lot of your wins.  I still remember my last baseball game when I missed stealing second base.  We not only lost the game, but we lost the conference as well.  I had the base stolen but my spikes got caught in the mud and I stopped one foot from reaching second base.  This is not the way I envisioned finishing my high school athletic career.last_img read more

Umpiring howlers dominate Day 1 of Ashes Test

first_img… 7 wrong decisions, 5 overturned by DRS in first inningsEVER since the World Cup, the debate regarding the umpiring decisions has been raging on. The standard of umpiring in the international cricket has become a hot topic among the fans and the World Cup final continued to add to that debate.One of the most experienced umpires in the world, Kumar Dharmasena recently admitted that his decision to award England six runs in the World Cup final against New Zealand was an error. It was a crucial decision, as England went on to win the tournament on the basis of more boundaries when the match ended in a tie.The umpiring howlers haven’t stopped over there as it has continued in the longest format of the game. The first Test in the Ashes series between England and Australia is currently going on at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.However, the first innings itself was full of wrong umpiring decisions as England and Australia relied heavily on the Decision Review System (DRS).There were a total of 7 wrong umpiring decisions with 5 being overturned by DRS. However, there were some unlucky ones as David Warner and James Pattinson were given out and they opted not to take the DRS despite being not out.Warner could have been dismissed in the second over itself when the umpire failed to spot a bottom edge on the bowling of Stuart Broad.But Australia were lucky as England opted not to take the DRS. Warner departed soon as this time Australia failed to take advantage of the DRS. The ball was missing the stumps but the umpire deemed it to be a clear dismissal.Then likes of Usman Khwaja, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade, Pattinson and Peter Siddle were affected as the umpiring decisions continued to be wrong. Khawaja was given not out by the umpires but England took the review and it showed that the batsman had edged the delivery.Matthew Wade, making his comeback into the side, was on the wrong end of the DRS. Despite being struck plumb in front of the stumps, the umpire did not deem it to be out. But England took the review and Wade was soon walking back to the pavilion.It was Smith’s turn to be affected by the poor umpiring decisions. Umpire signalled out on Broad’s delivery but Smith was quick to take the review and HawkEye showed that it was missing the stumps.The umpiring howlers continued as Peter Siddle was also given out but he quickly took the review and it showed that there was a big inside edge onto the pads.The on-field umpires for the first Ashes Test are Joel Wilson and Aleem Dar. Australia legend Shane Warne and former England skipper Nasser Hussain were also critical of the on-field umpires as they tweeted their frustrations. (hindustantimes)last_img read more

Professor to publish book following lives of veterans

first_imgProfessor Michael Messner was inspired by his grandfather and father’s services in World War I and World War II, respectively. (Photo from YouTube)Michael Messner, a USC professor of sociology and gender studies, will be publishing a nonfiction book titled “Guys Like Me: Five Wars, Five Veterans for Peace” on Nov. 9. His book will be released in time for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day and aims to shed light on the life-changing experiences of American veterans.The book focuses on five multigenerational men who fought in five different wars, including World War II, the Gulf War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Iraq War. Messner’s inspiration for this book stemmed from his grandfather’s service in World War I and his father’s efforts in World War II. “The way I grew up was being really fascinated by World War I but like a lot of veterans, [my grandfather] didn’t really want to talk about it,” Messner said.  “It’s very common for veterans of wars to feel that they really would rather not talk about it and to me that’s kind of part of a pattern [of] what I call ‘manly silence.’ It’s men learning … to hold things in and not show your vulnerability. So a lot of veterans … feel a sense of guilt or shame [for] things that they’ve experienced and [for] things that they’ve done.” Messner remembers wishing his grandfather a happy Veteran’s Day more than 30 years ago. He was surprised to hear his grandfather respond, noting that the holiday used to be called Armistice Day. Politicians had changed the name so they could keep having more wars, his grandfather said. Armistice Day, however, symbolized the end of all wars and the promise of lasting peace. To some veterans, like Messner’s grandfather, the holiday’s 1954 name change was an insult and indicates that the U.S. was founded on war, according to Messner. “He was very saddened by that and angry about it, and that’s one of the roots of my interest,” Messner said. “I mean obviously that was 30 or 40 years ago when that happened, but I’ve always kind of held on to that story.”Due to the misconception, Messner wanted to write a book to uncover the truths behind war, including the personal experiences of veterans and the trauma of war on their bodies, through mental illnesses like PTSD.  Messner said he interviewed veterans from Veterans for Peace, a nonprofit organization for U.S. veterans, to collect a variety of anecdotes for his book. “There [are] a couple [of] other people that I interviewed who aren’t among the five that I really profiled in the first chapter,” Messner said. Messner spoke to a female veteran and said that the woman’s anecdote was an important addition to the story since the female military experience is portrayed far less than men’s. Another anecdote in Messner’s book is from Ernie Sanchez, a World War II veteran. Messner said that Sanchez left the war because he was suffering from PTSD after he killed around 50 to 100 Germans in the line of duty. “[Sanchez] carries that with him for his whole life, and this sort of shame of having killed what he called ‘brothers, sons and people who were loved by others,’” Messner said. Messner also said that people’s active participation in war affects the way they view peace. “In the United States, most of us are so separated from the experiences of the military and war that we sort of think of ourselves as being at peace and we’re not,” he said. “We’re actually in permanent warfare right now in the world.” Messner hopes this book will share the stories of different veterans who were wounded physically and mentally by war. He said that many of these men are on a path to find peace and to separate themselves from the idea of endless war. “I want people to understand the experience of these veterans and hear their voices…” Messner said.  “We have these people who we’re sending over in our name… and they’re paying the price for our sense of complacency. These are guys who have come out of that place of silence and trauma and are speaking out for what they see as peace and justice.”last_img read more

Alexa Romero holds Binghamton to 1 run in Syracuse’s 13-1 victory

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Binghamton sent 18 batters to the plate Wednesday night. Fifteen times, Alexa Romero sent them back to the dugout. While Syracuse smacked Binghamton starter Allison Pritchard, Romero pitched like an ace. Three Bearcats reached base in five innings and only one scored.“She’s always coming in strong,” junior shortstop Sammy Fernandez said. “She usually always shuts down the opposing player. We can always expect her to make that big pitch.”When Romero joined SU’s rotation, Syracuse players and coaches knew she had the potential to be dominant. In Syracuse’s (19-12, 3-6 Atlantic Coast) 13-1 rout of Binghamton (9-16, 2-2 America East), the left-handed Romero pitched five innings. She gave up two runs or fewer for the eighth time this season when pitching at least five innings, and she lowered her earned run average to 2.38, breezing through the Bearcats lineup.On Tuesday, Romero had a hunch she would have a stellar outing. The Aurora, Colorado, native felt like she had her pitches moving well and hitting their spots in practice this week. One day later, pitching in her first game at SU Softball Stadium, Romero kept it rolling.Romero pitched with efficiency. The freshman threw 75 pitches through five innings, notching her seventh win of the year. Her counterpart gave up seven runs, walked six batters and threw 76 pitches in 2 2/3 innings.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJumping ahead in the count allowed Romero to utilize her movement pitches. Pop-ups and weak groundouts were products of Binghamton not getting the barrel of the bat on the ball.“I felt really good today,” Romero said. “I felt loose and relaxed.”In the bottom of the fourth, Stephanie Bielec’s bloop single to shallow left field gave Binghamton its first hit. One batter later, Romero made her only mistake of the game. A pitch to Kate Richard that caught too much of the plate resulted in an RBI double. When Romero could have surrendered more, her change up caused Bridget Hunt’s knees to buckle as she looked at strike three.“She’s just been doing her thing,” Syracuse head coach Mike Bosch said. “She’s been really consistent all season. She does a lot of things you really wouldn’t expect from a freshman.”This marks the second time Romero faced the Bearcats this season. The first encounter, a fall scrimmage in October, Romero said she pitched OK, but she didn’t elaborate. She instead reinforced that she has improved since then with her 75-pitch, three-strikeout victory on Wednesday night.
