Australian government hopes to establish triage by phone

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:47 pm

Sunday, January 29, 2006

The Australian federal government hopes to slash hospital emergency department waiting queues by setting up a 24-hour national medical hotline.

A government source said that the National Health Call Centre Network would be manned by registered triage nurses 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Triage nurses would perform a diagnosis over the phone based upon the description given by the patient. The patient would then be referred to the nearest emergency department, their local GP or pharmacy – as determined by the nurse.

The issue is expected to be discussed at next month’s Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting in Canberra. It is believed that the states and territories are supportive of the system.

If agreed upon by COAG, the service will be jointly funded by state/territory and the commonwealth governments at a cost of $40 million a year. The service would take 18 months to set up.

The service will be ran from a centralised call centre and be managed by a private contractor.

Julia Gillard, the opposition’s spokeswoman for health said any national call service needed to be linked with local GPs and medical services.

Gillard claims that under a Labor government, an after-hours “Pizza Hut” style service would be implemented, with a single national number connecting to a local call centre.

“You would be talking to people in the locality you are in and who know the local services,” she said

The Australian Medical Association, an organisation representing more than 27,000 doctors in Australia has slammed the proposal saying it will only deter people from seeking appropriate medical treatment.

Hemorrhoid Or Anal Fissure?

Filed under: Plastic Surgery — Admin @ 3:18 pm

By Mark Freeman

Hemorrhoid or anal fissure. Either one is a very painful condition. Some people who have anal fissures think their pain is caused by hemorrhoids and some who have hemorrhoids mistakenly think they suffer from an anal fissue. Here we’ll try to explain the difference.

An anal fissure is, simply stated, a small tear or cut in the lining of the anus. Anal fissures are generally caused by straining while on the toilet or by constipation. Sometime fissures are related to severe bouts of diarrhea. Fissures can be quite painful, especially during a bowel movement when the fissure is stretched. There will be red blood streaking the stool if you have a fissure.

Over 90% of fissures will heal without surgery. Recommendations to help prevent recurrence are increasing the fiber intake in your diet. This can be best achieved by taking an over the counter fiber supplement. Drink plenty of water to help keep your stools soft. Some take stool softeners, but do not take them for a longer period of time than is suggested by the manufacturer. Warm sitz baths can help ease the pain. Sit in a few inches of warm water for 15 minutes two to three times a day. When you wipe, use a cotton ball or pad soaked in witch hazel. You can buy pre moistened wipes in your drug store. Some who suffer with fissures are prescribed topical cortisone creams. Tylenol and Ibuprofen can help ease the pain.

Hemorrhoids are a very common medical ailment that affect both men and women. A hemorrhoid is an enlarged or swollen anal vein. As with anal fissures, hemorrhoids develop due to bad bathroom habits, such as sitting on the toilet for prolonged periods or straining. You will notice bright red blood with hemorrhoids. You may suffer from internal or external hemorrhoids. Generally internal hemorrhoids, which appear higher up in the anus are not painful, and only cause bleeding. It’s when an internal hemorrhoid prolapses, or drops outside of the anus and becomes what is know as an external hemorrhoid that it becomes painful and problematic.

Like anal fissures, hemorrhoid symptoms can be helped by sitz baths, wiping with cotton soaked with witch hazel, taking stool softeners, drinking more water, and increasing the fiber in your diet with a fiber supplement. There are numerous over the counter medications that can help relieve symptoms.

Please remember, not all rectal bleeding is due to hemorrhoids and fissures. If you experience any rectal bleeding it should be checked immediately by a physician.

Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Gaza continues after another ceasefire violation

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:34 pm

Thursday, August 21, 2014

On Tuesday, an interim ceasefire between Israel and the armed factions in Gaza was broken again, ending the talks between the delegations of both sides in Cairo before a long term agreement could be achieved.

The armed factions in Gaza renewed their rocket launching into Israel, while Israel renewed its targeted bombings in the Gaza Strip, including an apparent attempt to kill Hamas military chief Mohammed Deif, collectively resulting according to Hamas in at least nineteen Palestinian deaths. Reportedly at least 80 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip since Tuesday and sirens were heard in many areas across Israel, including Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Mohammed Deif deserves to die… as long as we have an opportunity, we will try to kill him

Yesterday, Moussa Abu Marzouk, Hamas’ exiled deputy leader, announced on Facebook Israel had tried to kill Mohammed Deif, Hamas military chief since 2002, and “The wife of the great leader was martyred with his daughter”. Israeli Interior Minister Gideon Sa’ar commented on the event to Israeli Army Radio, “Mohammed Deif deserves to die just like bin Laden. He is an arch murderer, and as long as we have an opportunity, we will try to kill him”. Reports suggest Deif already suffered from a number of disabilities caused by earlier Israeli assassination attempts.

Prostata: An Alternative Health Product To Improve Prostate Health

Prostata: An Alternative Health Product to Improve Prostate Health

by

Chris Robertson

If you or someone you love has an enlarged prostate, an alternative health product called Prostata can help. It contains a blend of vitamins, minerals and herbs that are proven to be beneficial for prostate disorders.

What is Enlarged Prostate?

It’s important to understand what an enlarged prostate is and that you are not alone. Most men realize they may have an enlarged prostate when they begin to urinate more frequently or if they have difficulty starting to urinate. There may also be issues with dribbling or leaking. It is the most common prostate health concern for men over the age of 50, and more than half of men have an enlarged prostate by age 60, according to the American Urological Association (AUA).

The medical term for enlarged prostate is benign prostate hyperplasia, or BPH. It is called “benign” because it is a noncancerous blockage in the prostate that slows or prevents the flow of urine through the urethra. Prostate cells will multiply and create an enlargement. This places pressure on the urethra as it becomes narrower. Then the bladder has to use more force to push urine through. In time, the muscle of the bladder may become stronger and thicker, and may contract even when there are only small amounts of urine. Eventually, the bladder will not empty itself of all the urine, and this increases the risk for urinary tract infections.

Traditional treatment of an enlarged prostate includes medication, minor office procedures, and surgery. These are determined based on the severity of symptoms.

Natural Remedies

As with any health condition, there are natural remedies and herbs that can help improve prostate health. The alternative health product called Prostata provides all natural prostate support. It is a nutritional supplement containing amino acids, saw palmetto herb, selenium, lycopene, vitamin E, pumpkin seed extract, nettle root, pygeum africanum, zinc and copper. These all contribute to a healthier prostate in different ways. For example, nettle root benefits the urinary tract. Saw palmetto and amino acids support prostate structure and urinary function. Vitamin E promotes cellular health.

Combined, these substances can help decrease daytime and nighttime urinary frequency. They can help with urinary dribbling, stream flow, urinary delays, etc. If you are experiencing burning or pain during urination, Prostata can decrease these symptoms. It also helps with incontinence and may improve sexual behavior.

Prostata is easy to buy online; no prescription is needed since it is an all-natural alternative health product. There are no known side effects, and the capsules may easily be taken as a dietary supplement daily. Look for Prostata at an online store that offers nutritional supplements and herbs at an affordable price. Even if you don’t yet have symptoms of an enlarged prostate, you can start using Prostata early on to encourage good prostate health.

US adds 173,000 jobs in August; unemployment rate drops to seven year low

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:43 pm

Monday, September 7, 2015

The US economy added 173,000 jobs in August, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. The unemployment rate fell from 5.3 to 5.1 percent, the lowest since April 2008.

Although August job gains were lower than most economists forecast, job growth numbers for June and July were revised upwards by a combined 44,000. Average job gains over the past three months stand at 221,000, compared to March-May’s 189,000 monthly average. Over the past twelve months, job growth has averaged 247,000 per month.

Average hourly earnings rose 0.3 percent, or 8 cents, marking the largest increase in earnings in seven months. Hourly earnings had risen by 6 cents in July. Wages have risen by 2.2 percent over the past year.

Job growth in August was primarily concentrated in the health care and social assistance, financial activities, and professional and business services sectors. Those three areas of the economy added a combined 108,000 jobs. Food service and drinking places employment increased by 26,000 over the month, and other economic sectors saw employment hold steady. Manufacturing, on the other hand, saw employment decline by 17,000 in August. A stronger dollar and worldwide economic weakness make US exports less desirable, leading to a flattening in manufacturing employment so far this year after steadily rising in the early years of the US economic recovery.

The solid overall job gains led analysts to slightly raise expectations for a decision by the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this month. Investors raised the likelihood of a September rate increase from 26 percent before the jobs report to 30 percent, and stocks dropped by over one percent on Friday. “The payrolls data is certainly good enough to allow for a Fed rate hike in September,” said Deutsche Bank’s head of currency strategy, Alan Ruskin. “The big question is still whether financial market volatility will scupper the plans.”

“This is the first time the market has looked at a Fed meeting and really has no idea what the Fed is going to do,” said Mark Kepner, a New Jersey equity trader with Themis Trading. “Right now you’re looking at the overall uncertainty and that’s what’s hanging on the market. I don’t think this number in and of itself changes how somebody’s going to vote.”

New species of dart frog discovered in Colombia

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:09 pm

Thursday, August 30, 2007

Scientists have discovered a new species of venomous dart frog in Colombia.

The new species, dubbed the ‘golden frog of Supatá’, is 2cm (0.8 inch) long and has a range of just 50 acres (20 hectares), which is believed to be the reason why the frog remained undiscovered until now.

The frog was found in February during an expedition arranged by the Conservation Leadership Program (CLP), a nonprofit organization, but the discovery has only just been announced.

However, according to Giovanni Chaves, a biologist from the CLP, the frog is in imminent danger. “This frog exists in a little fragment of cloud forest that is under intense {{w|anthropogenic]] pressure, mainly the destruction of the forest for cattle-raising and agriculture,” he said.

“This discovery allows us to know a little more about the ecology of these beautiful animals, and it will also allow us to use it as a symbol to carry out campaigns of environmental education in this area, to show the need to protect and to conserve the fauna and flora of this region of Colombia.”

Colombia has one of the richest diversities of amphibians in the world, with more than 583 known species.

What’s A Guy Have To Do To Get Cheap Car Insurance Around Here?

Filed under: Fleet Management — Admin @ 3:33 pm

Submitted by: Anthony Peck

The dream, the impossible dream of picking up a car insurance policy that isn’t going to completely break your budget. Car insurance is a necessary evil. There’s no getting out of it. The good news is, cheap car insurance isn’t as far away as you think it is! All you have to do is understand how the system works, then figure out how to use it to your advantage.

That’s not so hard, is it?

To send your car insurance rates plummeting, all you need to do is:

YouTube Preview Image

a) Clean up your driving record. Absolutely nothing is going to drive up your insurance rates like having traffic violations on your license. Whether you caused an accident or just ran through a stop sign that was buried in trees, that ticket is going to take points off your license and send your insurance rates soaring.

Be diligent when you’re behind the wheel. Almost nothing stays on your driving record for longer than five years, so if you can manage to avoid trouble for the next five years or so you’ll be able to start with a clean plate-and a five year good driver discount to boot! In the meantime, consider signing up (voluntarily) for a driver improvement course. That will add points onto your license, which in turn will lower your car insurance rates.

b) Pump up your car’s safety features. Suffice it to say that your insurance company doesn’t want to have to pay out car insurance claims! That means that anything you can do to lower the chances that your car will either be stolen or involved in an accident is only going to help you. Simple things like airbags, seat belts, GPS tracking systems and fuel switches can send your car insurance rates plummeting in the blink of an eye.

c) Talk to your insurance agent about any other discounts you may qualify for. Are you a telecommuter? That can save you money for low mileage. A straight “A” student? You’re entitled to a good student discount. Is your credit score better than average? You get the picture! You’ll be amazed by what can save you money when it comes to your car insurance, and when you’re talking about your budget in today’s stressed economy every little bit helps!

d) What kind of car are you driving around in? Believe it or not, there are certain cars that seem to have earned a spot on Santa’s naughty list, because statistically speaking they just can’t keep themselves out of trouble! The Highway Loss Data Institute publishes a list every year showing the makes and models of cars that have been involved in accidents, traffic violations and thefts over the course of the year. If you’re driving a high risk vehicle you’re going to pay more for your car insurance-no questions asked.

Everyone wants to enjoy cheap car insurance, so what are you waiting for? Call up your insurance agent today and get the ball rolling on the low cost insurance coverage you deserve.

Florida’s Walt Disney World launches revamped attractions

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:17 pm

Tuesday, November 16, 2004

ORLANDO, Florida — Alien Encounter and The Living Seas at the Walt Disney World Resort are to open today with a makeover.

The Alien Encounter attraction at Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom has been revised to include Experiment 626 from the movie Lilo & Stitch. Now called Stitch’s Great Escape!, the dog-like blue creature will lash out of its tube and terrorise the audience. The Galactic Federation’s Grand Councilwoman, Captain Gantu and Agent Pleakley appear in this show, essentially a prequel to the movie.

At the Living Seas, Crush the sea turtle from the Disney/Pixar movie Finding Nemo will host a new exhibit called Turtle Talk, joining smaller Nemo exhibits, a mainstay at the attraction for several months. Vegetarian shark Bruce will soon become part of a shark education exhibit.

According to publicity, the Turtle Talk show will run every 15 minutes, from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. A sign language interpreted performance will run on Fridays at 10:30 am.

Disney is holding the Stitch’s Great Escape! Sweepstakes, with prizes including a five-day, four night trip for four to Walt Disney World Resort.
