Sajid Javid gets leadership bells ringing over EU

first_imgSAJID Javid has long been talked of as a future Tory leader, and yesterday he become the latest senior party member to express doubts about Britain’s membership of the EU. The former treasury minister was speaking at a press gallery lunch in parliament, and was asked by one of the journalists if he would “shed a tear if Britain left the European Union?”. “No” came the reply.While The Capitalist wonders what Javid’s former colleagues at Chase Manhattan and Deutsche Bank would make of his comments yesterday, there is little doubt that it will have gone down very well with a huge number of the Tory backbenchers and members who will decide their next leader.Obviously conscious of the talk of his ascent, Javid started his speech: “I have today agreed to let my name go forward for the leadership of… Oops, wrong speech.” Subtle.When asked if he actually wanted to be the Tory leader, he replied: “I’m not making plans to lead any party”. A perfect non-denial denial.No surprise then that the odds on Javid, whose department is in charge of gambling law, are getting shorter by the day. Leadership contest klaxons weren’t the only bell that Javid set off during the lunch either.Cabinet members are regularly given a dressing down by the PM if their mobiles go off in their weekly meeting, and some funny details of the various ministers’ dubious ringtone choices have emerged. Sajid Javid revealed that his ringtone is You’re Beautiful by James Blunt, “but only when Chris Bryant calls”. The Labour MP was recently engaged in a tiff with the teeny-tiny pop star. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldLivestlyThe Best Redhead Actresses, RankedLivestlyNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableySenior Living | Search AdsSenior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look At The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinitionPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

It can be driving an ATV through an overgrown area, 4-wheeling is popular out here, throwing sparks and sometimes leaking some flammable liquid we do see that happen,” said Heck.Jeff Nickell has fought more than 150 brush fires in the area. He said many of the homes here don’t have “safe zones.”“A lot of the homes, since they don’t own the lots next to them – they don’t have a safe zone for the house.  You know to try to have a good buffer between your house and where the brush is,” said Nickell.Fire crews said the goal is always to save property but brush fires in the area have forced people to evacuate before.“Keep your gross mowed, keep stuff off your property line. Contact neighbors who own rough property and have them clean it up,” said Nickell.Firefighters said the cleaner you can keep your property line, the better. That means trimming overgrown brush, mowing the lawn and getting rid of anything that may be laying around.

Lehigh Acres fire crews are trained annually to battle brush fires. And every year, they do. Fires creep dangerously close to people’s homes.“We have to deal with getting in between houses to keep it off the structures to make sure they don’t catch fire,” said Jeff Nickell, a firefighter and EMT.Many times, people cause brush fires unknowingly.

4 Reasons Why A Specific Diagnosis Makes a Big Difference for People with Refractory…

first_imgHelping your doctor to uncover a more specific diagnosis can make a difference. You’ll know what you’re up against, what to expect in the future, and what treatment options may end up working well.However, there are challenges to finding a specific diagnosis. No two people living with specific epilepsy syndromes have the same initial signs and symptoms. Also, signs and symptoms can change over time, confounding diagnosis. For example, up to 3 out of 4 people with a rare and severe form of epilepsy may no longer have the same seizure types as when the seizures first started.1  Misdiagnosis and under-recognition are common problems for rare and severe epilepsies, including Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), Dravet syndrome and Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). In one study, nearly 30% of patients with LGS were previously misdiagnosed.2 In another study, the time from onset to an accurate diagnosis of Dravet syndrome was ≈4.8 years.3Here are four reasons why a specific diagnosis could make a real difference for people living with refractory epilepsy:1. You’ll know what you’re up against.It’s fairly common for people to reach adulthood before receiving a specific diagnosis. But knowing earlier could mean all the difference—it can unlock treatment options, access to foundations and grants or financial assistance, connect you with a supportive community of others who can share their experience, and much more.One of the benefits of finding your specific diagnosis is the opportunity to connect with advocacy groups. They are a community of support that brings families together to share advice, support, participate in events, learn about grant opportunities, or simply feel at ease in each other’s presence. For many, finding their support group made a world of difference.2. You’ll get to connect with a community of people who understand exactly what you’re going through.If you learn that you or your loved one is living with LGS, Dravet and TSC there are many resources available where you can find invaluable information, take advantage of support programs, and have opportunities to connect with others with similar experiences. See how one mother looked to her community for information. “Lili was 6 months old when she was diagnosed with seizures. She was first diagnosed with infantile spasms syndrome, and then it was around the age of 3 or 4 that it transitioned into LGS… Close to her turning 6 months old and all of a sudden I remember like we would go into her crib and we would be like hi Lili, and she would make this jumping movement… And so we called the pediatrician, and it’s ironic now because we remember saying to him… “She’s doing this weird behavior where it’s almost like a seizure and she’s like jumping and she’s doing it several times and we don’t know what it is.”We sort of always thought, well, she’s going to grow out of this, or it’s going to get better, or the next medication we try is going to just stop all of these seizures… There was such little information.There’s nothing wrong with getting a second opinion and seeking out other doctors. I think the research component and doctors who are on sort of a cutting edge of different treatments and willing to try other treatments and have experience trying other treatments, is important.” -Natalie, Lili’s mom3. You’ll get information about clinical trials and treatments that might helpHaving a specific diagnosis can open the door to treatment options that may help, and help your doctor identify new treatment options. Without a specific diagnosis, a tailored treatment can be challenging.2,5 Treatment plans and management can be personalized to particular conditions.2,34. You’ll know more information to help you prepare for what may happen in the futureMany families advocate for a specific diagnosis in order to get access to the best possible treatment plan, additional resources, and a community of support. Finding a specific diagnosis is possible—and it starts with filling in the gaps before you talk to your doctor.Talk to Your DoctorLiving with uncontrolled seizures can be scary, and seizures often vary from person to person—that’s why it’s so important to know what to tell your doctor to help fill in the gaps that may lead to a more specific diagnosis. This assessment was created based on extensive research to help you and your doctor begin the conversation and gain valuable insights toward finding a more specific diagnosis or simply learning more about what may be behind the uncontrolled seizures.References 1.

NSWMA Appeals to Truck Operators for Assistance

first_imgNSWMA Appeals to Truck Operators for Assistance UncategorizedAugust 23, 2007 RelatedNSWMA Appeals to Truck Operators for Assistance Advertisements RelatedNSWMA Appeals to Truck Operators for Assistancecenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) is appealing for truck operators to assist the agency in the massive clean-up process, in the aftermath of Hurricane Dean.“We are having a serious challenge in respect to the acquisition of trucks and that is slowing our ability to deploy them, so we are making a public appeal for persons with tipper trucks to come to 97 Hagley Park Road, so that we may engage them to give us the sort of numbers that is required to accelerate this particular programme,” Chairman of the NSWMA, Robert Bryan said at a press conference on August 22, at the NSWMA head office on Half-Way-Tree Road.Indeed, the truck situation is hampering the ability of the NSWMA to accelerate its clean-up programme, as it started out with some 20 trucks on August 21 to assist with the clean-up of the nation’s streets and had some difficulty in receiving the same amount of assistance on August 22. “With some effort, we got those numbers moving up again today but we need far more than 20,” he stressed.Commenting on the number of trucks needed, the Chairman said that it was more than triple the number that the agency was able to round up at the start of the week.“We will be deploying them based on the plan that we have,” he said, and pointed out that there would be a need to supervise these persons in clearing the road, in addition to paying attention to the resources that are available.Twelve new compactor units were handed over to the agency in June to help replace an aging garbage collection fleet. Five of the compactor units were deployed to Kingston, while two each were commissioned into service in Mandeville and Ocho Rios and the remainder in Montego Bay. An additional 60 units are expected to arrive by year end. However, the Chairman said that this would be dependent on the outcome of discussions with the relevant Ministries. Mr. Bryan also explained that in the wake of Hurricane Dean, it had become necessary to deploy crews with saws to facilitate the cutting up of trees and tree branches. “We will have to do this in other parishes and we are asking persons who may have this service available in the next couple of days to be on standby to make that service available,” he appealed.In the meantime, the Chairman pleaded for more patience on the part of the public as the challenge of the normal collection of garbage has been exacerbated in light of the damage left in the wake of Hurricane Dean.“There are areas that we are not just talking about hurricane damage but also a backlog of garbage and there are some areas that we are quite clear and understand that we have to pay particular attention to and deal with,” he said.“We are aware of particular situations in Stony Hill and in the Eastern side of the city. We are paying attention to those elements but we also have to be honest about the challenges, even without Dean, that the agency has been facing,” Mr. Bryan continued.He also called on all Jamaicans to continue assisting, wherever possible, in the clean-up process, while reminding that garbage should not be mixed with the debris.“In many communities, citizens have been working together and pulling the debris out on the main road and have done an excellent job,” he lauded.This community spirit, he said, had helped the NSWMA significantly, because it would facilitate a more structured pick up of the debris. “As we get the deployment of resources going, we will be working community by community,” he said.For truckers who make arrangements with persons for the removal of debris, the Chairman warned them to resist the temptation of dumping the debris in the first available empty lot or in gullies. “Of course it is simply not a solution, but compounds the problem.We are encouraging them to use the official dump sites in Kingston, which are all in operation,” he said.Mr. Bryan also said that the NSWMA was committed to informing the public about the daily activities of the agency in various areas. “What we will appreciate is to have citizens in those areas give us a call if they do not feel that they are seeing levels of that, because we are also mindful of the fact that based on our experience, we can have slippage between what is planned and what is taking place on the road,” he added.

It used to cost between Rs 1.58 lakh and Rs 2.5 lakh earlier.Ananth Kumar, Chemicals and Fertilisers Minister, said, “After cardiac stents, we have now decided to bring knee implants under price control.”The move will result in savings of around Rs 1,500 crore annually for an estimated 1.5 lakh patients requiring knee replacement surgery every year, he added.Justifying the move, Kumar said, “The government will not be a mute spectator to illegal and unethical profiteering.”He further said the government will take stringent action against hospitals, importers, retailers if they charge in excess of the MRP.
