SGA addresses College readership, renovations

first_imgThe Student Government Association (SGA) discussed the Le Mans Hall basement renovation and the Saint Mary’s Readership Program at Wednesday’s meeting. Student body president Rachael Chesley started the meeting by talking about a meeting with the designer who will be leading the project to renovate Le Mans Hall. “We presented her with all the ideas we talked about last week,” Chesley said. “There are a lot of possibilities that can be done down there.” Different ideas have included a television area, pool table and ping-pong table. Chesley said the basement would be split into eight zones, and SGA’s next steps would be to brainstorm what should go in those zones and to choose a theme color for the area. “We want it to be a really fun area that is engaging and interactive,” Chesley said. SGA will create a committee to discuss what should be done in Le Mans and they are trying to adhere to a particular time frame, she said. Chesley said they hope to have the project completed when students return from Spring Break. To meet that deadline, SGA will finalize the ideas at the beginning of spring semester. “First, we want to have the color we want down there,” Chesley said. “Then, after the color we pick the finish that we want down there. It’s a huge room so it all has to kind of connect still and off of that we have to think of furniture.” In addition to the discussion of the basement renovations, the Board also spent time reviewing the campus’ readership program, which SGA sponsors to supply students with free copies of USA Today, The New York Times and The South Bend Tribune. “We want to bring awareness to the program because it is a great thing we have here on campus so we looked at what other colleges are doing,” Chesley said. The Board discussed hosting “coffee-house style” meetings with professors at Dalloway’s — the campus clubhouse — and having the professor pick an article and present it to students. Chesley said students know about the free access to newspapers on campus, but they don’t always realize SGA sponsors it. The Board also talked about giving out prizes to students are “caught reading.” Students seen reading the newspaper could be given prizes by members of SGA, Chesley said.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Joins Johnstown Tomahawks Hockey Team to Discuss New Opioid Prescribing Guideline Recommendations for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

first_img Press Release,  Public Health,  Public Safety,  Substance Use Disorder Johnstown, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf and medical staff of the Johnstown Tomahawks hockey team joined local leaders at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena to discuss the new prescribing guideline recommendations for the safe and effective use of opioids in orthopedics and sports medicine.“These guidelines are a crucial piece of my administration’s continued fight against the opioid and heroin abuse crisis,” said Governor Wolf. “In communities across Pennsylvania I have heard the same heartbreaking story – that a young person from a good family, with a great future ahead, got a sports injury and was prescribed too many opioids by a well-meaning doctor. That’s why these new prescribing guidelines are so important for athletes at all levels of competition.”“In our organization, we consider the players to be more than just athletes; they are also someone’s son who hope to one day play this game at the collegiate or professional level,” said Dan Goncher, Johnstown Tomahawks team medical director. “Every medical decision is made with consideration of both the short and long-term outcomes of their injury.  Knowing the country’s growing epidemic of opiate addiction, we use narcotic pain medications for severe injuries only, and for as short a duration as is possible.  My practice and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to meet with Governor Wolf and participate in the round table discussion today.”The Safe Prescribing of Opioids in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine guidelines address the use of opioid pain medication in orthopedics and sports medicine. They are intended to help health care providers improve patient outcomes and to supplement, but not replace, the individual provider’s clinical judgment.Under Governor Wolf’s leadership, the departments of Health and Drug and Alcohol Programs have convened the Safe and Effective Prescribing Practices Task Force. Membership of the task force includes various state agencies, representatives from medical associations, provider advocates, and community members.The task force has now developed and adopted guidelines for nine medical specialties on the safe and effective use of opioids in the treatment of pain:Emergency Department Pain Treatment Guidelines: To appropriately relieve pain and attempt to identify those who maybe be abusing or addicted to opioid analgesics and refer them for special assistance.Opioid Use and Safe Prescribing for Geriatric Pain: To highlight special problems concerning using opioids when treating older adults for chronic non-cancer pain.Guidelines on the Use of Opioids to Treat Chronic Non-cancer Pain: To address the use of opioids for the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain. These guidelines do not address the use of opioids for acute pain, nor do they address the use of opioids for the treatment of pain at the end-of-life.Guidelines on the Use of Opioids in a Dental Practice: To address the use of opioids for the treatment of acute dental pain.Obstetrics and Gynecology Pain Treatment: To address the use of opioids for the treatment of pain in pregnant patients, during and immediately following delivery, and during breastfeeding.Opioid Dispensing Guidelines: To focus on several key areas that can impact pharmacists of any practice setting. Focal points include assessing the appropriateness of opioid pain medication at the point of dispensing, recognition of “red flags” on prescriptions as well as high risk medication combinations, available resources for those with a substance use disorder, and methods to prevent diversion from the emergency department.Guideline on Use of Addiction Treatment Medications in The Treatment of Pregnant Patients with Opioid Use Disorder: To address treatment for opioid use disorders during pregnancy and is intended to help health care providers improve patient outcomes when caring for these patients.Guidelines on Safe Prescribing of Benzodiazepines for Acute Treatment of Anxiety and Insomnia: To address the use of benzodiazepines for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia.The Safe Prescribing of Opioids in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.If you or someone you know is suffering from the disease of addiction, call 1-800-662-HELP or visit www.pa.gov/opioids for treatment options.

Provocative signs spark discussions on campus

first_img“Fag.” “Yeah, but she’s a slut anyway.” “Mexicans are lazy, though.” “Don’t Jew me.”Mollie Berg | Daily TrojanThese are just a few of the phrases that the Women’s Student Assembly, an advocacy group that falls under Program Board, included on fliers leading up to an Wednesday event intended to explore discussions of race, class and gender. The posters, which sparked conversation among some and offended others, were meant to depict insensitive language that some students face regularly.“We wanted to start a discussion around the way some people experience discrimination every day and bring awareness to that, because a lot of people hardly ever experience language that targets or offends their entire community,” said Kaya Masler, a director of WSA.The advertisements were posted around campus, though many were taken down by Monday. Neither WSA nor Program Board was responsible for removing them, Masler said, though she speculated that it was possible that individuals had removed the signs.The Division of Student Affairs oversees advertising at USC. According to the division’s regulations, as outlined in SCampus, content of printed material cannot contain “fighting words,” speech that, “considered objectively, is abusive and insulting rather than a communication of ideas.”Several students said they felt the signs encouraged discussion and a dialogue about slurs. Jennifer Joseph, a senior majoring in human performance, said that though she never saw the signs, she heard about them from a group of friends who saw them.“It gets people to talk for sure,” Joseph said. “We were all curious about what they were there for.”The event, “PLUG IN: An Interactive Workshop on Race, Class and Gender,” will run Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ground Zero Performance Cafe. Due to scheduling, the event falls on the 12th anniversary of the attacks on 9/11, which Masler said was not intentional but a fact not lost on the event’s planners.“We’re going to do a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11 at the event, and it’s kind of about working past isolationist fears as a community and as a nation,” Masler said.Masler recognizes that not all students took kindly to the insensitive language on the flyers.“I think some people were [offended],” Masler said. “They should be. But, once again, this campaign is not intended at all to condone this language but rather to encourage people to get angry about it and respond to it.”Emily He, a sophomore majoring in biology, was one of the students who said she was turned off by the language on the signs.“It’s just uncomfortable,” He said. “I found some of the flyers a little bit offensive, so it didn’t make me interested in reading any further at what the fliers had to say.”Even some supporters of the event worry that the inclusion of sensitive language could lead to misinterpretation.“It was edgy, but I’m afraid it could be interpreted [in] the wrong way,” said Josh Fasky, a senior majoring in neuroscience. “Impact versus intent is a very fine line to navigate and should be approached carefully.”The Political Student Assembly, the Black Student Assembly, the Latino/a Student Assembly, the Queer People of Color Club and Lambda Upsilon Lambda are all co-sponsoring the event.The fliers for the Ground Zero event are not the only campaign that has attempted to draw attention to insensitive language. The LGBT Resource Center created fliers for resident advisors that list derogatory slurs and how they might hurt students. Some of these phrases include “b-tch,” “ghetto,” “whore” and “that’s so gay.”“[It’s] to put it out there that people should rethink the language they use and how certain words can affect an individual negatively and how we should think before we speak,” said Vincent Vigil, director of the LGBT Resource Center.Vigil said the fliers are part of a campaign called “Words that Hurt and Why,” which is part of the center’s Ally Project.Masler ultimately hopes that, through group workshops at the event, students will gain tools and approaches to deal with discrimination based on race, class or gender.“I don’t think the event is about political correctness as much as it is about being aware of what one another goes through and being better allies of one another’s experiences and struggles,” Masler said. “It’s not so much about policing each other as it is about helping each other be more culturally and racially sensitive.” Follow Daniel on Twitter @danielrothberglast_img read more

Almost 35,000 Donegal homes and businesses awaiting broadband

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has said that 34,107 homes and businesses await the green light for the National Broadband Plan (NBP) in County Donegal.The NBP aimed to ensure that every home, school and business in Ireland had access to high-speed broadband. Despite this 36% of homes and businesses are still awaiting the provision of high-speed broadband services.Deputy McConalogue commented, “Despite ongoing assurances from this Government over the last number of years, the National Broadband Plan has still not been given the go ahead and it is rural Ireland and Donegal in particular who are suffering. “Recent census figures have put Donegal as the poorest county in Ireland, high unemployment has contributed to youth emigration and the IDA hasn’t secured the set-up of any new companies in the region over the last number of years. I believe lack of high-speed broadband is a contributory factor and this needs to be addressed urgently.”He added it is evident that over the last number of years there is a growing appetite for remote working for career, health and lifestyle reasons and companies are more open to supporting remote workers in order to retain talent.“Donegal has everything to offer in terms of finding a healthy work-life balance and we need to be able to capitalise on this working trend however we need the IT infrastructure and broadband services to support our families who want to live and work here.“This Government must stop the delays and ensure that the National Broadband Plan is rolled out as soon as possible” concluded McConalogue.

More Details Emerge on “Google Editions,” Google’s eBook Store

first_imgRelated Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#E-Books#Google#news#NYT#web center_img At the Frankfurt Book Fair, Google announced more details about their upcoming online ebook service known as “Google Editions.” Originally revealed earlier this year, Editions will be a hosted electronic bookstore for a selection of in-print books which would be provided by Google’s publishing partners. And unlike some other ebook formats, like those designed for Amazon’s Kindle for instance, the so-called “Google editions” will be readable on any device whether that’s a laptop, phone or dedicated eReader. According to news coming out of the Book Fair event, the new digital books program will launch in the first half of 2010 and will offer 400,000 to 600,000 ebooks at that time. Access AnywhereAlthough we already knew that the online store would host books in the cloud, we didn’t know just how that would work. Tom Turvey, Google’s director of strategic partnerships, now explains that the device does not need to be connected to the Internet to read the book after it was accessed once. He also clarified that the company is “not focused on a dedicated eReader or device of any kind.” Instead, consumers would go online one time from their device of choice and afterwards, a cached version of that book would be stored so that it could be read offline at anytime. “As long as you can get onto the library, you can access it,” says Amanda Edmonds, Google’s director of strategic partnerships, who was speaking at O’Reilly’s Tools of Change conference, also being held in Frankfurt at a venue near the Book Fair event. Although not specified, it seems probable that the offline caching done by Google Editions will be made possible via Google Gears, a browser extension that allows website content to be taken offline and then re-synced when an Internet connection returns. Business ModelsAs noted on The Bookseller, a site covering the Tools of Change conference, Google Editions will offer three business models. The first will allow a consumer to purchase the ebook from Google Books, Google’s online collection of digitized books. The second will allow consumers to purchase from a partner retailer and the third would direct consumers to a publisher’s website. In the first route, payments are split 63/37 in the publisher’s favor. If purchasing from a retailer, that split would be 45/55 with the 45% going to the publisher and the retailer splitting the remaining 55% with Google. No decision has been made on the split for the third option, purchases made via a publisher’s own website. Edmonds also noted that these splits are not set in stone just yet – discussions were “just beginning.” In addition, Google may discount books from their list price where permitted, but the discount would be taken from Google’s profits and not anyone else’s. Other news from the O’Reilly event pinned down the launch date of the Google Editions store. It will launch simultaneously in the U.S., U.K., and Europe in June 2010. Google would not give the names of the device manufacturers they intend on partnering with, but Edmonds says she doubts Kindle will be one of them. sarah perez 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

The Care and Feeding of Strategic Clients

first_imgStrategic clients require more from you than other clients. All clients are important, but your strategic clients have a different set of needs. They need you to be more engaged, and they need you to deliver greater outcomes than you would for a client that doesn’t have their same needs.CommunicationYour strategic clients require more communication. Because your relationship is deeper, they need to you to be aware of what they’re doing, and they need to know what you are doing. This isn’t just a good idea, it’s critical.You have to communicate with your strategic clients so that you understand their strategy. This is high level communication that ensures that you know where they are going, and that you are aligning the right resources to do your part. You also have to communicate much more frequently at a more tactical level, to make sure what is being delivered is working.Caring requires constant communication.ExecutionYou simply cannot retain a strategic client without being able to execute effectively. If they are strategic, they rely on what you sell to a great enough extent that you cannot fail them. The fastest way to lose a strategic account is to fail to execute.This is about outcomes. You are accountable for the outcomes you sell. The care and feeding of your strategic clients requires that you execute continuously. It’s not that you can’t have problems. It’s not that things can’t go wrong, or that you can’t hit a rough patch. You strategic clients have those same problems. It’s your ability to smooth out those rough spots and execute that allows you retain their business.Improved Performance, Yours and TheirsOver time, you have to help your strategic clients get better. Over that same period of time, you also have to get better.What you do has to help your strategic client get better at producing the results they need. You need to help them improve what they are doing. You will notice things as you execute, and those things will allow you to help them make changes, changes that improve their performance.You have to get better too. As you work together, you have to get better at delivering the outcomes you produce. As my friend, David Allen says, “The better you get, the better you better get.” It’s not enough to rest on your laurels. Or to believe your contract secures your relationship.New Value, New OutcomesBut wait. There’s more.The value that you created when you helped your strategic client understand their world and that led them to choose you is just the beginning. The value that you created as you executed is what allowed you to build the relationship. This is necessary, but not sufficient.From quarter to quarter and year to year, you have to create new value. You have to generate new ideas and new initiatives that take things up another level, that generate new outcomes. Some of these ideas and initiatives will be small, and some will be transformative. Sometimes the small ideas are what allow you to see the greater ideas. They are all important.The care and feeding of your strategic clients has always been about creating value. Essential Reading!
