Shaun King Provides Backstory For Winston Crab Legs Photo, Blasts People Criticizing The QB

first_imgShaun King clarifies James Winston and the crab legs story.Shaun King Crab LegsThursday night, former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, posted an Instagram photo of himself celebrating his No. 1 selection in the NFL Draft with a plate full of crab legs. Normally, such a photo wouldn’t be newsworthy – but given the fact that Winston was caught shoplifting crab legs from a Tallahassee Publix last April, it didn’t go unnoticed. Winston, who was criticized heavily for the post, eventually took it down, reportedly at the request of his new employer.Former NFL quarterback Shaun King, who is dialed into the football scene in northern Florida, has provided a bit of backstory on the photo Friday morning. He says that the crab legs were a gift from Captain Keith Colburn of The Deadliest Catch after Winston helped auction off a king crab at Mike Alstott’s charity auction earlier this year. He’s blasting people who have been critical of Winston.If people only knew how STUPID they sound killing this kid over that picture smdh— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015I was seated at the table right next to jameis at the mike alstott charity auction, when captain keith asked jameis to help him auction off— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015This huge king crab he had flown in for the event. Captain keith is from the deadliest catch show. I wasnt sure how jameis was gonna— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Handle the request, but it didnt faze the young man at all he simply said ok sure, we r here to help the alstott foundation right.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015That same captain keith in a gesture of thanks sent jameis and his family 25lbs of king crabs legs for his draft event last night.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Thats the backstory behind last nights picture for those of you who need to seriously have some self evaluation done— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015While the backstory may be a bit more heartwarming than many would have guessed, Winston likely still knew the reaction he’d get for the post. Whether it was worth it – well, that’s a question that the new Buccaneers quarterback can answer.last_img read more

Research team receives federal grant to study obesity in children with spina

first_imgChildren with spina bifida are known to have a decreased level of energy expenditure, although we cannot specify how much less as compared to their typically developing peers. Our hypothesis is that the number of calories we currently recommend parents feed their children may be higher than it should be, inadvertently contributing to excess weight gain.”Michele Polfuss, Joint Research Chair in the Nursing of Children at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Jul 10 2019Children with spina bifida, a congenital condition of the spine and spinal cord, have a higher rate of obesity compared to typically developing peers. One barrier to better prevention of obesity is accurately assessing body fat.Michele Polfuss is leading a research team in a $3.6 million federal grant to investigate methods of accurately measuring patients’ body composition in a clinical setting.Polfuss is the Joint Research Chair in the Nursing of Children at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. With an interdisciplinary team of professionals, she will determine methods of providing information on the amount of energy expended or calories used in children with spina bifida and determine an accurate assessment of their weight category. For people who are not disabled, health providers can get a fairly accurate assessment of a person’s weight status by measuring the person’s height and weight, and then using this information to calculate a body mass index. That doesn’t work well for children with spina bifida who may be unable to stand or have orthopedic complications that challenge their ability to have an accurate measure of height or weight performed, said Polfuss. If the measure of height or weight is not accurate, then the BMI is inaccurate.Related StoriesNew therapeutic food boosts key growth-promoting gut microbes in malnourished childrenUCR biomedical professor to investigate how body’s cannabis-like molecules influence obesityDaily intake for phosphates in infants, children can exceed health guidance valuesThe aim of the project is twofold, said Polfuss. “We want to find a feasible method of measuring body fat that can be conducted cost-effectively and accurately in the clinic – and to provide better guidance to the family on nutritional intake recommendations, with the ultimate goal of preventing and treating obesity.”The project team includes health professionals from four pediatric spina bifida programs at children’s hospitals across the United States – Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Children’s Hospital of Alabama-Birmingham and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh – who are working with 232 children.”We are happy to help lead the effort on this important and needed research,” said Nancy Korom, chief nursing officer and vice president at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. “Our mission is to have the healthiest children in the state, and through this multi-site initiative, we can improve the health of children across the nation.”The five-year grant comes from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, part of the National Institutes of Health.

New technology replaces the standard way to repair a hole in the

first_imgThis new method eliminates the need for a patient to be placed on blood thinners as they do when a device is implanted in the heart.Noble Stitch is considered a no footprint procedure, which means that it’s minimally invasive, using a catheter to place a stitch to close the hole and leaving nothing behind. Using the new method also reduces complications that can arise from an implanted metal device, such as the risk for blood clots or irregular heartbeats.”Dr. Clifford Kavinsky, professor of interventional cardiology and cardiovascular disease at Rush Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 21 2019Rush University Medical Center is the first hospital in Chicago to use a new technology that enables specially trained physicians to use a single stitch to close an opening between the upper chambers of the heart -; a condition that is found in about one in four people, most of whom are unaware of it. Known as Noble Stitch, the new technology replaces the standard way to close this opening in the heart, which uses an implanted metal device that stays within the heart muscle. This opening in the heart, also known as a patent foramen ovale (PFO), remains when the upper heart chambers do not close naturally after a baby is born. The opening allows for blood to bypass the lungs in an unborn fetus until the lungs are exposed to air. After a newborn takes a first breath, the hole usually closes naturally within a few months.”We have found that this opening remains in over 25% of adults. In the overwhelming majority of people it is a benign condition,” said Kavinsky.Related StoriesCancer incidence among children and young adults with congenital heart diseaseCutting around 300 calories a day protects the heart even in svelte adultsWeightlifting is better for the heart than cardioMost people are not aware they have this opening. In some people, particularly the young, small blood clots can cross through this opening and go up to the brain and causes a stroke. In young people who have had a stroke because of this opening, there is a procedure where a catheter is inserted through a small incision in the inner thigh (groin) and then advanced up into the heart, where it is used to insert a device that stitches the opening closed,” said Kavinsky.According to the American Heart Association, more than 1.3 million Americans have some form of congenital heart defect (CHD), with about 40,000 children born with a heart defect each year. The causes of congenital heart defects are unknown.In January 2018, the FDA approved Noble Stitch for use in vascular and cardiovascular procedures in the United States.”The NobleStitch EL, which has been used extensively in Europe and Italy, is an excellent option for patient with PFOs,” said Dr. Joshua Murphy, assistant professor of pediatric cardiology at Rush University Medical Center.When done properly, the stitch provides the best short and long-term outcomes for patients, with essentially a natural, native, atrial tissue.””As a center of excellence for PFO treatment procedures, we are glad to be the first to offer this treatment option to our patients,” said Kavinsky.A study for PFO closure using Noble Stitch will begin at Rush in the fall of 2019.

Soon air pollution could be measured on every street corner

first_imgThe prototype consists of a sensor connected to a box which both shows the emissions levels in real time, and saves the results over time.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The technology is already in use in western Sweden, and researchers and other interested parties hope that the sensor could soon be used in many broad contexts. A collaboration with the University of Sheffield is also underway.”Air pollution is a global health problem. To be able to contribute to increased knowledge and a better environment feels great. With the help of these small, portable sensors, it can become both simpler and cheaper to measure dangerous emissions extremely accurately,” says Chalmers researcher Irem Tanyeli, who has helped develop the small sensors, which measure nitrogen dioxide with great precision.For the hi-tech sensors to make the move from the lab out into the real world, Irem Tanyeli worked with the Gothenburg-based company Insplorion, co-founded by Chalmers researcher Christoph Langhammer in 2010. With help from financier Mistra Innovation, he has been involved with the company’s efforts at taking on the great environmental challenge of precisely mapping air pollution.”This is a great example of how a university and a company can collaborate. Both parties contribute with their expertise to create a new product, contributing to a more sustainable society,” says Christoph Langhammer, Professor at the Chalmers Department of Physics.Exhaust gases from road traffic are responsible for the majority of nitrogen dioxide pollution in the air. Breathing in nitrogen dioxide is harmful to our health, even at very low levels, and can damage our respiratory systems and lead to cardiac and vascular diseases. According to the World Health Organisation, air pollution is the single biggest environmental health risk worldwide.The new optical nano-sensor can detect low concentrations of nitrogen dioxide very precisely—down to the parts-per-billion level (ppb). The measuring technique is built upon an optical phenomenon which is called a plasmon. It arises when metal nanoparticles are illuminated and absorb light of certain wavelengths. Christoph Langhammer and his research group have been working in this area for over a decade, and now innovations are starting to see the light of day. World’s fastest hydrogen sensor could pave the way for clean hydrogen energy Citation: Soon, air pollution could be measured on every street corner (2019, June 13) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-air-pollution-street-corner.html “In the future, we hope that the technology also can be integrated into other urban infrastructure, like traffic lights or speed cameras, or for measuring air quality indoors,” says Irem Tanyeli.A sensor is also installed on the roof of Nordstan in Gothenburg, one of Scandinavia’s biggest shopping malls, and soon more will be placed along the route of Västlänken, a major railway tunnel construction project, also in Gothenburg.The technology has already raised interest from several organizations, including the Urban Flows Observatory, an air quality centre at the University of Sheffield. They will conduct field testing, comparing the nanosensors’ results with data from a number of British reference stations.”There is a lack of small functional nitrogen dioxide sensors on the market. We find this nanoplasmonic solution interesting, and look forward to the test results,” says Professor Martin Mayfield at Urban Flows Observatory, University of Sheffield.Other interested parties include Stenhøj Sverige, a company, which develops gas and smoke analyzers for automotive repair shops and vehicle inspection companies, as well as IVL, Swedish Environmental Research Institute. IVL works with applied research and development in close collaboration with industry and the public sphere to address environmental issues.The new sensor technology is not limited to measuring nitrogen dioxide but can also be adapted to other types of gases. There is therefore potential for further innovation.”Nitrogen dioxide is just one of the many substances which can be detected with the help of optical nanosensors. There are great opportunities for this type of technology,” says Christoph Langhammer. Air pollution is responsible for 550,000 premature deaths a year in Europe and 7 million worldwide, according to the WHO. Measuring it can be a challenge, however, as the equipment tends to be large and expensive. But soon, this may change, thanks to a small, optical nanosensor developed at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, which can be mounted onto an ordinary streetlight. Provided by Chalmers University of Technology For the last two years, Irem Tanyeli has been working with optimizing the sensor material and conducting tests under differently simulated environmental conditions. The technology is now installed in a streetlight in Gothenburg, as part of a collaboration with lighting company Leading Light, to measure the quantity of nitrogen dioxide molecules in the urban environment. The new optical nano-sensor can detect low concentrations of nitrogen dioxide very precisely – down to the parts-per-billion level (ppb). The measuring technique is built upon an optical phenomenon which is called a plasmon. It arises when metal nanoparticles are illuminated and absorb light of certain wavelengths.

What is Kejriwals issue with LG whose role is clearly defined Sheila

first_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENT Published on Senior Congress leader Sheila Dikshit addresses the media in New Delhi on Friday   –  PTI SHARE June 15, 2018 Former Delhi CMasks incumbent to approach PM for full statehood to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should first read the Constitution and then approach the Prime Minister and Parliament for full statehood to Delhi, Congress leader Sheila Dikshit said on Friday, criticising the AAP’s ministers for staging a sit-in at the Lieutenant Governor’s office.Dikshit said the role of the Delhi Lt Governor and the Chief Minister is defined in the Constitution and wondered why AAP leaders were protesting at L-G Anil Baijal’s office since Monday. “What is his (Kejriwal’s) intention behind it?”At a press conference, the three-time Delhi chief minister said she feels “ashamed” that a Chief Minister is releasing photos sitting on a protest at the L-G’s office.Contrasting her governance with that of the Aam Aadmi Party, she said the BJP ruled at the Centre when she became the Delhi chief minister in 1998 and there was no conflict between them.She said the Congress also demanded full statehood for Delhi, but it never politicised the issue.She said Kejriwal must understand that Delhi is a Union Territory and he is wrong if he thinks he can have a governance model like Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.“He should first read the Constitution. If he thinks that there is a need to make amendments to the Constitution, he should approach Modiji and Parliament,” she said.Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said the AAP and the BJP were doing “dharna politics” as they are “not serious” about public issues such as water shortage.

Cyclone Fani leaves 12 dead in Odisha relief work underwayCyclone Fani leaves

first_imgcyclones Cyclone Fani: Flight operations resume at Kolkata, Bhubaneswar SHARE SHARE EMAIL Over ₹ 1,000 cr released for states affected by cyclone ‘Fani’: PM Modi Cyclone Fani kills 14, injures 63 in Bangladesh: report SHARE RELATED May 04, 2019center_img Published on A day after the “rarest of rare” summer cyclone Fani ravaged parts of Odisha, killing at least 12 people, a massive restoration-and-relief work was launched on war-footing on Saturday across 10,000 villages and urban areas, officials said. The extremely severe cyclonic storm, which made landfall at Puri on Friday, unleashed copious rain and windstorm that gusted up to 200 kmph, blowing away thatched roofs of houses, swamping towns and villages, before weakening and entering West Bengal, they said. Around 2,000 emergency workers, along with civil society organisations, personnel of the NDRF, the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force (ODRAF) and one lakh officials, were engaged in the restoration work, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said in a statement, before leaving for an aerial survey of the affected areas. The death toll due to the calamity, which stood at eight on Friday, mounted to 12 with four fresh casualties reported from Mayurbhanj district, the officials said, adding that detailed information from many areas was still awaited.All the four people were killed after uprooted trees fell on them at different places in Baripada, the emergency officer of Mayurbhanj district, S K Pati, said.“This is a rarest of rare summer cyclone…. The first such to hit Odisha in 43 years and one of the three to hit the state in the last 150 years,” Patnaik said.Assurance from PMPrime Minister Narendra Modi, who, spoke to Patnaik and discussed the prevailing situation in the aftermath of Fani’s landfall, is likely to visit the affected areas either on Sunday or Monday, CMO sources said.The prime minister has assured continuous support from the Centre.“Spoke to Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik Ji and discussed the situation prevailing due to Cyclone Fani. Assured continuous support from the Central Government … The entire nation stands in solidarity with all those affected by the cyclone in different parts,” Modi said in a tweet.Extensive damageThe districts of Puri and Khurda were the worst-affected, the chief minister said, adding that Cuttack, Bhadrak, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Balasore, Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar, Dhenkanal and Nayagarh were also hit by the cyclone.“In Puri and parts of Khurda, where the electricity infrastructure has totally been devastated, we have the challenge of having to set up the entire electrification afresh,” Patnaik said. Though the “extremely severe” cyclone weakened into a “very severe” cyclonic storm in a few hours, it flattened houses with thatched roofs and kutcha houses, uprooted scores of trees, electric poles and mobile towers in coastal Odisha.Hundreds of engineers and technicians were working to restore power supply, the officials said.Work was on to restore road communication, thrown into disarray with thousands of uprooted trees blocking the way at innumerable places, Patnaik said.Relief and rescue operationsThe men and machinery of the NDRF, the ODRAF and the fire services swung into action and launched a massive restoration work to bring back normalcy, Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) B P Sethi said.“For me and my government, every life is precious and we have worked with that goal. I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all the volunteers, panchayati raj institution (PRI) members, officials and staff who worked tirelessly and selflessly to get around 12 lakh people to safety,” Patnaik said.State Energy Secretary Hemanth Sharma said around 30 lakh power consumers were affected by the cyclone, which threw the electricity distribution infrastructure out of gear in most coastal districts.The restoration work was on in full swing, he added.Over 10,000 electric poles were uprooted or broken in Bhubaneswar, he said, adding that efforts were on to restore power supply in 25 per cent crucial sectors such as the airport, the railway station and hospitals.Another 25 per cent work would be completed on Sunday and efforts were on to restore complete normalcy at the earliest, Sharma said.The power network has been severely damaged in districts such as Puri, Khurda, Ganjam, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara and Balasore.The Quick Action Team (QRT) of the premier naval training establishment, INS Chilka, was immediately deployed to provide emergency assistance in cutting and clearing trees in some areas, said an official.A naval Dornier aircraft carried out an aerial survey and found extensive damage to vegetation at many places around Puri.Large-scale inundation was observed at many places, particularly in the low-lying areas between Puri and the Chilka lake, the official said.The chief minister said nearly 12 lakh people were evacuated and shifted to safer locations from about 10,000 villages and 52 urban agglomerations, 24 hours ahead of the cyclone, “probably the largest such exercise at the time of a natural calamity in the country“.The evacuees were accommodated in over 4,000 shelters, including 880 specially-designed cyclone centres, he added.
