Diabetic patients advised to wear soft, closed shoes at all times

first_img Sharing is caring! National Epidemiologist Dr. Paul RickettsPatients who suffer from diabetes are being advised to ensure that they wear proper foot gear which is soft, closed shoes at all times.Diabetes Mellitus is a disease of the pancreas which is an organ behind your stomach. Normally, the pancreas releases a hormone called insulin that helps your body store and use the sugar and fat from the food you eat.One local doctor has admonished diabetic patients to pay special attention to the shoes they wear as statistics indicate that there are an increasing number of amputations on the island.National Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Ricketts noted that amputations are an issue and are increasing at a media breakfast meeting last week.“Individuals who are diabetic need to understand and we need to work with them to ensure that their blood sugar levels are adequately controlled. The less control you have the more likely you are to develop problems with your feet. In addition to that diabetics need to understand that they have to take care of their feet to avoid some of the trauma that goes on and which then predisposes them to develop infections in the feet which could ultimately lead then to amputations.”According to Dr. Ricketts most patients do not wearing proper shoes which can protect their feet against abrasions or injuries which could lead to amputations.“I have a difficult time trying to convince patients to that they need to wear protective foot wear at all times. I tell them you need to wear a soft close up shoe, once you get up and start walking around make sure you have shoes on; you’re coming to Roseau, you’re coming to the doctor make sure you have proper shoes on but u know what happens? Many people feel well they want to wear stylish shoes or they feel their foot is too hot in the sneakers.”Of importance is that many diabetic patients loose sensation in their feet and often innocently knock their feet while walking around in their homes and do not realize it, the foot then “becomes infected and that’s where the beginning of a cascade of events end up”.He said many times some patients do not fully grasp the situation which they are in but he is “absolutely positive” that amputations are done in the patient’s best interest.According to him patients have to understand that while they may not want to lose an entire limb, by refusing to amputate may lead to them losing their lives. “So we ought to choose which do you prefer? Do you prefer to lose a toe or do you prefer an entire limb or do you prefer to lose your life?”Dr. Ricketts also announced that the Ministry of Health has undertaken a Foot Care Program in which they offer training for the health care workers which will enable them to detect “that something is going wrong early and therefore refer on to a specialist for further treatment or intervention”. They are certain medications available as well which may improve circulation in the feet and the Ministry is also promoting these medications to assist patients with circulations challenges. Dr. Ricketts also acknowledged that “a lot needs to be done in terms of educating and promoting proper foot care; awareness by patients, also the need which we are addressing for more skills in identifying and managing foot problems as well as treating those individuals who develop problems that may be threatening the survival of that limb”.

Myles Garrett regrets swinging helmet at Mason Rudolph: ‘I made a mistake, I lost my cool’

first_imgBrowns head coach Freddie Kitchens and quarterback Baker Mayfield were scathing of Garrett, who addressed the incident himself post-game.’THAT’S ASSAULT’: NFL players react to Myles Garrett’s helmet-swinging attack”I made a mistake, I lost my cool and I regret it,” Garrett told reporters. “It’s gonna come back to hurt our team. The guys who jumped in to the scrum… I appreciate my team having my back but it should never get to that, it’s on me.”“He understands what he did. He understands what he did is totally unacceptable.” — Kitchens on Garrett— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) November 15, 2019When asked if the incident overshadowed Cleveland’s win, Garrett said: “A win is a win. I don’t think it’s overshadowed by what happens in eight seconds.” Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett said he made a mistake and regrets it after his ugly hit on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.Garrett, an NFL Pro Bowler in 2018, ripped off Rudolph’s helmet before swinging it and hitting the Steelers QB in the head late in Cleveland’s 21-7 victory over Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh’s Maurkice Pouncey then aimed kicks and punches at Garrett in shocking scenes in Cleveland on Thursday. Pittsburgh’s Rudolph also spoke to the media afterwards and he hit out at Garrett.”Not in my years. I thought it was cowardly and pretty bush league,” Rudolph said when asked if he had seen anything like that in football. “… I’m fine and good to go.”Pressed on whether Garrett should be suspended, Rudolph replied: “I don’t know what the rules are. I know it’s bush league and he is a total coward. … It’s OK, I’ll take it. I’m not going to back down from no bully. We will see what happens.”last_img read more

BMW SA expands export programme

first_img5 August 2013BMW South Africa has expanded its export programme to facilitate increased production and will export its BMW 3 Series from Maputo in Mozambique, in addition to shipping from the Durban port.“BMW South Africa has increased its production output with the introduction of a third shift, which was implemented towards the end of last year,” BMW South Africa managing director, Bodo Donauer, said in a statement last week.“Our overall annual production figure will increase from around 50 000 units per year to more than 80 000 units in 2013.The number of vehicles exported from South Africa will also more than double from 33 000 units to over 70 000 vehicles per year.“In line with this increase in volumes, we have had to look carefully at our export logistics and using Maputo in conjunction with our existing export supply chain in Durban makes sound business sense,” Donauer said.About 14 000 vehicles will be exported from the Maputo car terminal each year. Exports through Durban will also increase by approximately 20 000 vehicles – an increase of over 60% on current levels.“We have aligned our service offering of road freight logistics, clearing and forwarding and terminal services with the customs requirements of South Africa and Mozambique to provide an integrated process from the BMW vehicle distribution centre in Rosslyn to on-board the vessel in Maputo,” said Group Business Development executive at Grindrod Freight Services, Walter Grindrod.Grindrod is responsible for BMW South Africa’s road freight logistics, as well as serving as the private operator of the Maputo car terminal concession.“We have run trials to test the system and are confident the export route is sound. Going forward, we expect two shipments per month to take place with these export vehicles destined for markets in Japan and other parts of the East,” Grindrod said.Transport and logistics have long presented a challenge for South African automotive manufacturers, and the use of the Maputo terminal is envisaged to improve existing supply-chain corridors.“To play on a world stage, we need to ensure we are competitive in all elements of the manufacturing process including supply chain and logistics,” Donauer said.“The decision to use Maputo is the first step in ensuring the development of a robust, well thought out and competitive logistics network, which includes access via multiple SADC [Southern African Development Community] ports and can easily incorporate sea, rail and road freight.“The idea of a southern African development community is the ultimate vision for the type of supply chain needed to fully service South African manufacturers,” he said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Mobile Application to Diagnose Disease by Hearing you Cough

first_imgTags:#health#mobile#news#NYT#Real World#web Feeling a bit under the weather? Soon you’ll be able to cough into your mobile phone for an instant diagnosis. A research firm called STAR Analytical Services is working to develop software that can analyze the sound of a cough and identify it as either associated with a common cold, the flu, or something worse – like pneumonia or another serious respiratory disease. Just as doctors have been doing for years, the software will “listen” to the wetness or dryness of a cough and determine whether all you need is a lozenge or if you need to come in for a doctor’s visit instead. Turn Your Head…Towards Your Mobile PhoneThe American and Australian scientists at STAR have received a $100,000 grant from the Gates Foundation to develop the cough-analyzing software for developing countries where access to health care is more limited than in first world nations. Despite the poor economic conditions of these under-developed countries, there are a plethora of mobile phones which are being used for everything from early warning systems to mobile payments to health alerts. An mobile app that diagnoses disease would fit right in. The way the diagnostic software works is by comparing the sounds of the mobile user’s cough to a database of coughs associated with all the different types of respiratory diseases. There would also be multiple coughs per disease stored in the database to take into account variations by age, gender, weight, and other factors. While to our untrained ears, many coughs sound just alike, a tuned-in doctor – or in this case, a mobile app – can listen to the entire structure of a cough from the initial intake of air to the final 100-150 milliseconds of a cough that contains the distinctive “wet” or “dry” and “productive” or “unproductive” sounds that help to classify the cough’s seriousness, explains an article on Discovery News. Even the loudness of a cough is taken into account – healthy people have coughs that are 2% louder than a sick person’s. At the moment, the software exists as a computer application but the scientists plan to have it re-written, when complete, as an application for mobile phones. There’s no word on when the mobile application will be released, but the scientists will need to collect around 1000 cough samples before the database is ready. If they’re able to then design a successful analytical tool for mobile phones, the impacts to people’s health would be far-reaching – and not just in developing countries, but everywhere in the world.

What We Started With

first_imgA leaky shellYou might say that everything above the mudsills was a modest bonus: a decent floor frame in the portion built on site, a ten-year-old roof in excellent condition, and a 12’x24′ deck. Oh, and a buried 250-gallon propane tank, still mostly full of gas.The house had a gas water heater and a gas furnace. The furnace was in a tiny attic-like spot in the 16’x32′ part, and I could see outdoors through the eave vents from the furnace location. The thermal boundary was, like the framing, creative.The blower door number was a tad over 3,100 cfm50 — about 0.63 cfm50 per square foot of shell area. We aim for 0.05 cfm50 per square foot of shell area at South Mountain, and frequently do better. In this project we reduced the leakage ratio 25:1. More on that to come. What Is a Deep Energy Retrofit?The High Cost of Deep-Energy Retrofits Did it make sense to buy a house that needed so much work?A sensible person may ask, Why did we buy this house anyway? We looked at a couple of parcels in West Tisbury (we were clear we wanted to stay in this town) and I felt that I didn’t want to go through the disturbance process that accompanies the development of raw land. I’ve been preaching that we need to fix what we have already built. I can assure you now that I have put my money, far too much of it in fact, where my mouth is.When all was said and done, we paid about $100,000 more for this house than a parcel would have cost, and we got an excellent well, a Title V compliant four-bedroom septic system (this is a good thing: we could expand), two underground electrical services — one 100-amp service for the outbuildings, and one 200-amp service for the house — two funky but useful outbuildings, an excellent concrete foundation housing 1,000 square feet of basement, and a developed site. One section of the house was moved here from EdgartownThe owner learned that there was a house in Edgartown that the property owner wanted to remove, and that the house was available for free if he moved it.The Edgartown house was a stubby L-shaped building, with a 16’x32′ section that contained a kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom, and a 22’x25′ section with living area.What I think happened — this is conjecture on my part — is that, in haste to get the project underway, the new foundation was possibly put into place before the conversation with the house mover occurred. I hypothesize that the house mover looked at the 22’x25′ piece and said it would be difficult/costly/impractical to move. So in the end the 16’x32′ portion was severed from the rest and moved, and the 22’x25′ section was duplicated new on site. RELATED ARTICLES In June 2013, Jill and I moved into our new house in West Tisbury on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.This house has an interesting history. The owner of the place had been living on the lot in a structure that began its life as the body of a box truck. It was 8’x16′ and had a small attached shed that housed the water pressure tank and the water heater. A small gambrel loft had been built on top; I could just barely sit up inside.There was a small gas heater, a 100-amp electric panel, a sink, and some built-ins. No shower. There was an outhouse on the property. You might say this was a tiny house before the Tiny House movement began. Marc Rosenbaum is director of engineering at South Mountain Company on the island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. He writes a blog called Thriving on Low Carbon. Marc teaches a 10-week online Zero Net Energy Home Design course as part of NESEA’s Building Energy Master Series. You can test drive his class for free. The floor plan left a lot to be desiredThe floor plan had only one bedroom and the south side was very modestly glazed, so we knew we were in for an interior gutting project and major re-framing of the exterior openings. Note to self: this is expensive; it’s better to buy a house with a floor plan and orientation you like!Once the drywall and fiberglass were removed, it was clear that some creative structural design had been incorporated. The 16’x32′ portion had no structural ridge or ties across, so it was held up by paint. The rear had three substantial wood ties across at roughly 6 to 7 foot centers, but we needed to remove the drywall to see that each was attached to the wall with a single 1/2-inch-diameter lag screw — about 1/10th of the fastening capacity that the design load would merit. Good thing it hadn’t seen a significant snow load.

I suspect the portion that was moved wasn’t much older than that, as the glass in the Andersen windows was dated 1996 and the walls were framed with 2x6s.The interior finish of the house was no great shakes: green carpet, white vinyl flooring, and inexpensive kitchen cabinets. There were some unpleasant odors, traceable to some rodent activity, and a 140-square-foot patch of basement floor where the water pipe came in from the well and the pressure tank and water heater sat; this area didn’t have a concrete slab, just crushed stone over filter fabric. Smelly soil gases.Plus, the insulation was in the ceiling of the basement, so the basement ran cold, which on Martha’s Vineyard means mold.There was a very creative outdoor shower, complete with clawfoot tub (see photo above). Bathtubs are another tale I’ll discuss in the future.last_img read more
