Pack programme brings primary healthcare to the people

first_imgHealthcare workers will through the Pack be able to diagnose and manage a range of common ailments. (Image: UCT)A comprehensive low-cost medical tool, the Practical Approach to Care Kit, or Pack, which allows healthcare workers to diagnose and manage a range of common ailments, is now being rolled out by South Africa’s University of Cape Town.Pack covers 40 common symptoms and 20 conditions including cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases, TB, HIV and Aids, women’s health, and end-of-life care. This makes it an essential for poorer, under-resourced regionsNow BMJ, a global healthcare knowledge company, has joined with the UCT Lung Institute’s Knowledge Translation Unit to develop and distribute the Pack programme to healthcare workers in low to middle-income countries.INCREASING HUMAN CAPACITY IN HEALTHCAREThis collaboration will train and support doctors, nurses and pharmacists to improve primary healthcare in underdeveloped areas. BMJ will provide technical development, marketing, sales and licensing to help implement the Pack programme globally.“It is crucial for healthcare workers to be provided with the latest evidence-based recommendations, and locally relevant information, to diagnose and treat patients effectively,” said Dr Fiona Godlee, editor-in-chief at BMJ.“We are delighted to partner with UCT to bring the programme for use in underserved communities to help improve the delivery of primary care.”In accordance with South Africa’s National Development Plan or Vision 2030, in the healthcare sectorhuman capacity is key. Managers, doctors, nurses and community health workers need to be appropriately trained and managed, produced in adequate numbers, and deployed where they are most needed.Since Pack was first launched in South Africa in 2007, it has reached 20 000 health workers in 2 000 clinics and hospitals across the country.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Eleven Ohio FFA chapters were chosen to receive a $500 grant to participate in the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program’s (OSGMP) nutritional-awareness campaign, “Food for Thought Challenge.”Introduced at the annual Farm Science Review, Food for Thought is a statewide competition among FFA chapters to increase awareness about the nutritional value of a diet with whole grains, among other healthy behavior changes, in their schools and communities. Participants will create a campaign that will promote small grains in any way they choose. Participating FFA chapters submitted campaign entries in September and were selected in October based on the originality of their campaign ideas.FFA chapters selected to participate in the Food for Thought challenge include:• Cory-Rawson• Cedarville• Eaton-MVCTC• London• Madison-Plains• McComb• Mowrystown• North Union• Ridgedale• RiverdaleThe selected chapters met on November 10th at the Ohio FFA center to kick off the contest.

Glenn Harsh, June 25

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are Y-DROPping our second pass of nitrogen on the corn and we are moving along in between rainstorms. Luckily a couple of farms up north didn’t get quite as much rain, but at the home farm we got 3.5 inches over 3 days and then we got another tenth after that. It depends where you are as to how wet it is.We have a moderately high clearance rig but in some spots this corn is 6.5 or 7 feet tall and it is definitely pushing us. I was able to get out yesterday and go through a couple of those fields pushing the height for our rig.We are still tissue sampling and that looks pretty good. There are no major deficiencies. In some fields hit by those big rains w are seeing a little N loss in those fields and sulfur sometimes goes with that.There are going to be some holes in some soybeans from this last set of rains. I am seeing that around the neighborhood too. It depends on which rain cell you got under. You have to really watch your fields.It is definitely getting on the late side to replant some of those areas, but if you can get 30 bushels to the acre instead of zero there is some value there. It really depends on those rains this week and whether you are able to get into those spots. If we go another week, the chances are better for 20 bushels instead of 30 and you have to think about those green spots you’ll have to combine around next fall. Next week is a tougher replanting decision.You can go around and see those fields that were maybe worked one time and find that density layer with a soil probe. On these no-till fields with cover crops you don’t find that layer and that definitely helps with water infiltration and with more organic matter it can hold more water too.Our corn looks pretty good and the weed control is good. With soybeans there are a lot of fields that still need that post-emergent pass. Because of the rain and some wind people haven’t been able to get back out in the fields. There are still a lot of fields with foxtail or some of the pigweed species. It is time to get back into some of those bean fields.last_img read more

3 Free Video Editing Applications

first_imgPro video editing tools at a price everybody can afford – free!Although Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro are getting most of the love these days, there are a few other video editing options that provide a professional toolkit, but won’t cost you a dime. In this post we share 3 FREE video editing apps.As for paid professional apps, Adobe has been on top of the subscription model, including Premiere Pro in the Creative Cloud at a cost effective price of $49/mo. Final Cut Pro X costs a 1/3 of it’s previous price, now available from the Apple App Store for $299.99.  Lastly, Avid Media Composer will set you back $1,300 or $49/mo.So, how do the FREE alternatives hold up to their professional counterparts? Let’s take a look…DaVinci Resolve 11 LiteDaVinci Resolve started off as a color grading system, however that changed once Blackmagic Design purchased the system from JDS Uniphase Corporation in 2009. Since that time Blackmagic has been expanding the editing capabilities of the app with every release (along with more powerful color tools). Resolve 11 is the premiere color grading app it’s always been, but it also includes a comprehensive video editing toolset, similar to what you’d find in the paid NLEs we discussed above.DigitalTutors highlighted some of the recent video editing related additions to the app in their recent blog post:DR11 incorporates a updated edit index that can filter clips by flags and offline clips.A variety of different editing and trimming tools that increase the power and precision of editing clips.A new JKL trimming tool allows you to trim during playback, both forwards and reverse at different speeds.Transitions can be added through a drop down menu that’s accessible by right clicking between cuts within the timeline. The drop down menu contains preset options that can be changed by the user.The full version of Resolve 11 costs $995, however Blackmagic has made a free ‘Lite’ version of the application available with much of the same functionality as the paid version. In fact, all of the editing tools from the paid version are available in the Lite version (the biggest differences between the versions is missing 3D features and noise reduction).DaVinci Resolve Lite is available for both Mac and PC. Download at Blackmagic Design.Filmmaker Central has a detailed introduction to DaVinci Resolve Lite:EditShare’s LightworksLightworks is a professional video editing application created by Editshare. With the ability to edit 2K and 4K video, Lightworks has been used on several Oscar and Emmy Award winning productions such as Hugo, Mission Impossible, The Departed and Braveheart.While the functionality is impressive, Lightworks does have a steep learning curve. If you have no real experience with video editing applications then you’ll need to dive head first into the documentation and online tutorials (of which there are plenty).Lightworks is available on Windows, Linux and Mac. Download at LWKS.comHere is EditShare’s tutorial on creating a project in Lightworks:iMovieYou may be thinking “iMovie, really?”Yes, iMovie doesn’t have the toolset that Final Cut Pro X does. Yes, iMovie comes with EVERY Mac. Yes, iMovie has some really cheesy transitions and backgrounds! I hear what you’re saying! But iMovie’s interface and workflow is similar to just about every other professional non-linear video editing application. Successful video editing is, above all else, about storytelling and iMovie has everything you need to put together a story on a timeline base. Final Cut Pro X borrows some of it’s look and features from iMovie, so it’s a solid primer before you take the FCPX leap.iMovie is, and always will be, available on Mac only. It costs $14.99 as a stand alone app, but does come FREE with all new Macs.Which one of the FREE video editing apps do you like best? Do you know of other free solutions that did not make the list?

DeMar DeRozan, Spurs prepared for pressure of Game 7 in Denver

first_imgDuterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Game 1 of second round, 7:30 p.m. EDT, TNTNEED TO KNOW: The 76ers and Raptors met in the second round of the 2001 playoffs, with Philadelphia winning in seven games. … Toronto is 2-14 overall in Game 1 of a playoff series. …Toronto is 21-3 against Philly since the start of the 2013-14 season.INJURY WATCH: Philly forward Mike Scott’s status for Game 1 is still to be determined because of a bruised heel.KEEP AN EYE ON: Jimmy Butler. The Sixers guard/forward matched a career-high in field-goals made (15) against Toronto on Dec. 5. He also tied his career best in steals (six) on Oct. 24. Going way back, Butler had a career-most five blocked shots against Toronto on Dec. 22, 2014.PRESSURE IS ON: The Raptors. Kawhi Leonard’s teams are 13-0 when he plays against Philadelphia. He was 3-0 against the 76ers this season and averaged 30.3 points.NUGGETS AT SPURSSeries tied at 3. Game 7, 10 p.m. EDT, TNTNEED TO KNOW: The Nuggets are 1-2 in Game 7s. Their only win was in 1978 against Milwaukee. … Under Popovich, the Spurs have gone 3-3 in Game 7s.INJURY WATCH: Murray took a knee from Jakob Poeltl to the left thigh on a screen in Game 6.KEEP AN EYE ON: Gay. The veteran forward had his best performance of the series in Game 6 with 19 points. “I’ve been a scorer my whole career, man. I’m going to continue to shoot,” Gay said. “It’s been a gift and a curse for me.” Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess UAAP men’s volleyball: UST ends campaign on high note, La Salle trumps UP Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte DeRozan’s point : It’s not his team playing a hostile crowd when the Spurs face the Denver Nuggets at Pepsi Center in the first-round series finale Saturday.Still, the second-seeded Nuggets went a league-best 34-7 at home in the regular season behind all that noise.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“Go out there and play free, play smart,” said DeRozan, whose team forced a winner-moves-on scenario with a 120-103 victory Thursday in San Antonio. “We can’t get caught up in the crowd.”The Spurs are packing enough outfits for a week’s worth of travel — just in case. Should they win, it’s off to Portland to start the Western Conference semifinals. Should they lose, the offseason begins. LATEST STORIEScenter_img “We’re not going to pack for no reason,” Spurs forward Rudy Gay said. “If I’m going to pack my clothes, I’m going to use them.”That’s the sort of swagger the Spurs bring to the court. DeRozan believes that experience will play a role against a youthful Nuggets team that is in the postseason for the first time since 2013. With an average age of 24.9, the Nuggets have the youngest squad in the West bracket. The Spurs check in at 27.2.And while Denver has proven a difficult place to play, the Spurs won in the Mile High City during Game 1 and had a 19-point lead in Game 2 before Jamal Murray rescued the Nuggets.“It’s literally win or go home. Simple as that,” said DeRozan, who played in two series that went to seven games in 2016 when he was with Toronto. “Once you understand the meaning of that going into the game, you understand that every single second on the court matters.“The guys that have been in a Game 7 understand what it’s like.”ADVERTISEMENT PRESSURE IS ON: The Nuggets.

The Hawks lost the first-round series to Indiana.“You’ve got to play a perfect basketball game,” said Millsap, whose team would host the Trail Blazers with a win. “The team that comes out and executes more, the team that’s more physical, the team that’s more aggressive, I think they’re going to win the game.”Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic is coming off a monster game in which he had 43 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. He is averaging nearly a triple-double for the series.As for what he expects Saturday, he is not really sure.“It’s my first Game 7,” Jokic said. “It’s probably going to be even tougher than this one.”San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich facing Denver’s Michael Malone is another intriguing element in this game. Malone referred to his coaching counterpart as Bobby Fischer — the late chess prodigy — as they tried to outmaneuver each other. This is Malone’s first playoff series as a head coach. In contrast, Popovich has been to the postseason 22 straight seasons, with five titles.For his part, Millsap will try to keep his young teammates from feeling too many nerves.“All the pressure is on them,” Millsap said. “This is why we fought so hard for home-court advantage. No pressure on us.”Here’s a look at Saturday’s games:76ERS AT RAPTORS San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan (10) drives to the basket against Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap (4) and center Nikola Jokic (15) during the second half of Game 6 of an NBA basketball playoff series, Thursday, April 25, 2019, in San Antonio.
