Unions battle in Ohio over hospital workers

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

The Service Employees International Union, a trade union in the United States and Canada, was trying to unionize 8,300 workers in nine different Ohio hospitals through elections that were scheduled for this Wednesday and Friday. But then organizers from a second union, the California Nurses Association, visited the hospitals to encourage the workers to vote not to join the S.E.I.U. These actions led to the service employees union on Tuesday asking to postpone the vote by workers at the nine hospitals, all which are a part of the Catholic Healthcare Partners system.

Andy Stern, the service president is quoted as saying, “nothing more than a flimsy cover for out-and-out union busting that we normally see from employers, not organizations that claim to care about workers.”

The California Nurses Association, said it dispatched organizers to Ohio because in its view the unionization efforts were part of a “sweetheart deal”.

Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of the nurses association, condemned this agreement. She called it “a rigged scam” in which the service union would bargain without care if they won the vote.

“This was a top-down deal between an employer and a hand-picked union,” Ms. DeMoro said. “There was a gag order on everyone, and as a result this was a banana republic election.”

“As for the future,” DeMoro said, “no election is planned.” She said that delaying the election was “a significant victory for employee rights.”

Dave Regan, president of a service employees’ local representing 35,000 health care workers in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky, called the nurses union’s conduct as, “Their conduct is indistinguishable from that of the most vicious anti-union employers,” Mr. Regan said. “It violates every principle of unionism. Real people are worse off today as a result of their behavior.”

Orest Holubec, spokesman for Catholic Healthcare, said the system’s hospital in Lima had obtained a restraining order to bar the California nurses from entering restricted patient-care areas and aggressive leafletting outside hospitals. “They were doing exactly the kind of things we were trying to avoid,” Mr. Holubec said. “They poisoned the well to the degree that we didn’t have the conditions that we tried to establish for a pressure-free environment.”

A Guide To Anti Aging Skin Care}

A Guide to Anti Aging Skin Care

by

Kylie ReedFollowing is a brief anti aging skin care guide. Hopefully, it will help you understand the benefits and drawbacks of anti aging skin care treatment.There are hundreds of products on the market designed to help enrich your skin. Each claims to be the best. Each claims to make you look younger. How do you know what works and what doesn’t? The following information will hopefully provide some answers.The sun is responsible for 90% of the changes that we attribute to getting older. Wrinkles, fine lines, changes in tone and texture are all caused by UV radiation. Sagging and bags under our eyes are caused by a loss of elastin. That’s the other 10%.Much of the damage is done before we reach the age of twenty. So ask yourself why does nearly every anti aging skin care guide harp on the importance of using sunscreen? Why do some anti aging skin care treatment companies include sunscreen as an ingredient?Until recently, it was believed that there were no disadvantages to the use of screening lotions. Now, we know that it may decrease the risk of squamous and basal cell cancer, but it increases the risk of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.It remains unclear whether the increased risk of melanoma is caused by the sun block chemicals being absorbed through the pores of the skin or merely over-reliance on the products. Regardless, the research is clear; anti aging skin care treatment which is designed to be used daily, should not contain sunscreen.Now, just because the damage was done when you were young, does not mean that you cannot correct some of that damage. If you can encourage your body to create new collagen, new elastin and new skin-cells, while increasing levels of proteins that are important for all of these processes, you will look younger.The average anti aging skin care guide does not cover any of these issues, just as the average anti aging skin care treatment does not work in any of these areas. You must diligently search to find products, which will effectively address these issues.Ingredients that have been found to be truly effective include Keratin, wakame and nano-lipobelle. There is clinical research supporting the effectiveness of anti aging skin care treatment containing these ingredients.The best, most natural Keratin is a combination of natural bioactive keratin and a nutritional hydrolysed keratin, and is derived from the wool of New Zealand sheep. Keratin is a protein that is needed to create and repair the skin’s layers and cells. This particular type of protein can be easily absorbed and used by the human body for that purpose.No anti aging skin care guide would be complete without mentioning the negative effects that free radicals have on our skin. You probably already know they may cause cancer, but did you know, they also cause changes in collagen and elastin fibers that eventually become wrinkles.Just as we may take antioxidants orally to destroy free radicals inside our bodies, we need antioxidants for our exterior, or our skin, as well. Nano-lipobelle and wakame have powerful antioxidant capabilities. Wakame extract is derived from a specific kind of sea kelp.While, Nano-lipobelle is a specially created formula containing vitamin E and co-enzyme Q-10. It is designed to penetrate through all the skin’s layers, destroying free radicals as it goes. Only the best anti aging skin care treatment contains all of the nourishing ingredients mentioned here.That completes our mini anti aging skin care guide. Though there is much more to learn, hopefully this information gives you a place to start. Visit us for more information regarding anti aging skincare.

When our skin is

clear and radiantwe feel better about ourselves. Learn more about taking care of your skin with natural,healthy anti aging skin care.

More worries of further contamination of food from China

Friday, September 26, 2008

The World Health Organization (WHO) is warning that more food imported from China may be contaminated with melamine, a chemical used in the manufacturing of plastics. Melamine, although nontoxic in very small amounts, can cause severe kidney problems in large doses.

Guanshengyuan, a Chinese company that makes children’s candy, has stopped selling its popular brand White Rabbit, which is sold nationally in China, after tests confirmed the presence of melamine. Bright foods owns the candy company. Earlier their powdered milk was found to contain melamine which sickened over 53,000 people and was responsible for the deaths of at least four infant children. Guanshengyuan has stopped exporting their goods to the nearly 50 companies overseas that buy them.

Melamine has also been found in Hong Kong in baby cereal and vegetable formula made by Heinz. It has also been found in wasabi crackers which are manufactured by the Chinese company, Silang House.

Another Chinese food company called Marudai Food Co. has also halted the sales of several items such as meat buns, cream buns and corn crepes made with cream over fears that melamine laced powered milk has contaminated their products. So far there have been no reports of any illnesses associated with Marudai Foods.

Further items recalled or other products that feared to be contaminated with melamine are Mr. Browns Instant Coffee and tea products, along with their powdered milk.

The first report of contamination came last week when the Chinese health ministry confirmed that the companies responsible for producing the milk were trying to repair their damaged public image by increasing output using melamine. The Chinese Health Ministry has stated that most of the tainted milk was produced by Shijiazhuang Sanlu Group Co.

The WHO says that women with infants should consider breast feeding for the time being on infants aged at least six months, until the contaminated milk can be removed from the consumption chain.

“WHO recommends that all infants should be fed exclusively with breast milk for the first six months of life. No other liquid or food, not even water, is needed during this period. Thereafter, infants should receive adequate and safe complementary foods while breastfeeding continues up to two years of age and beyond,” said the WHO in a statement on their website.

In 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed the presence of melamine in pet food that was imported from China. Samples indicated that wheat gluten, used as an ingredient in the pet food, was contaminated with the chemical. As a result of the contamination, the FDA said some of the contaminated gluten entered the human food chain. At least 45 people ate contaminated pork which was traced to pigs from a farm in California. The pigs had eaten feed that had been contaminated. There were no reports of deaths or illnesses.

Copiapó, Chile mining accident: in depth

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

The rescue of the Chilean miners trapped in the San José Mine in Copiapó, codenamed Operación San Lorenzo (San Lorenzo Operation), began on Tuesday night, at around 20:00 local time (23:00 UTC).

Florencio Ávalos was the first miner to be rescued, at 00:12 local time (03:12 UTC) on Wednesday. He was wearing a shirt signed by all his fellow miners. “The first miner is already with us. We saw it all, him hugging his wife Monica and his son Byron,” said President Piñera shortly after the first rescue. “We still have a long journey.”

“This will be recorded on every single Chilean heart forever,” Piñera added. “I hope the miners’ hope stay with us, just like the [February] earthquake victims’ [hope] and what the earthquake took off. We know that the disasters unite us all.”

All the 33 miners were rescued. The last miner, Luis Urzúa, was rescued at 21:55 Chile time (00:55 UTC). “It is a pleasure to be Chilean, [I’m] proud,” said Luis Urzúa to President Piñera. “In honour of the miners, their families, the rescuers […] let’s sing our national anthem. Viva Chile Mierda!,” said Piñera. Urzúa thanked Mining Minister Golborne and the First Lady Cecilia Morel for “fighting for their lives.” “I’m proud of my fellow miners,” Urzúa added.

Six rescuers, including a miner and a paramedic, descended to the miners’ shelter using the Fénix 3 capsule which was specially constructed for the rescue. They performed check-ups and talk with the miners before taking them back to the surface. The rescuers still don’t leave the mine.

The Fénix 3 capsules are 3.95 metres in height and weigh about 460 kilograms. They have an armour, an oxygen tube and a microphone. The occupants helmets contain an intercom to keep them in contact with the rescue team on the surface.

President of Chile Piñera assisted to the rescue. Bolivian President Evo Morales could not attend Carlos Mamani’s rescue. Mamani is the only Bolivian miner in the group.

A mass for the miners was conducted at 18:00 local time (21:00 UTC). The rescue takes between 15 and 20 minutes for each miner.

On Tuesday, Mayor of Copiapó Maglio Cicardini announced that the municipal schools in the city will have no classes this Wednesday “to transform the rescue of the Atacama’s 33 in a familiar meeting,” Radio Cooperativa reported.

“The miners will be taken to the Copiapó Regional Hospital for medical checkup, where they will have to stay for 48 hours,” Health Minister Mañalich said to Televisión Nacional de Chile.

Celebrations are taking place in several Chilean cities. In Santiago de Chile, people gathered in one of the most important points of the city, Plaza Italia. In Pichilemu, tens of cars are passing over its most important streets. In Copiapó, people gathered in its main square to assist a massive concert.

On August 5, 33 miners were trapped more than 700 meters (2,300 ft) underground, in the San José copper–gold mine, located about 40 kilometers north of Copiapó, Chile.

The youngest trapped miner is 19 years old, and the oldest is 63. There were several rescue attempts before reaching the miners’ shelter on August 22. The National Emergencies Office of Chile (ONEMI) released a list of the trapped miners on August 6, which included Franklin Lobos Ramírez, a retired footballer.

Chile is the worlds top producer of copper, according to The Economist. The San José Mine is owned by the San Esteban Mining Company (Empresa Minera San Esteban). The mine was closed down in 2007, after relatives of a miner who had died sued the company executives, but the mine was re–opened in 2008.

It was originally estimated that “it would take three to four months to complete the rescue of the trapped miners”. There were three plans to reach the miners: “Plan A” using a Strata 950 drill, “Plan B” using a Schramm T130XD drill, and “Plan C” using a RIG-422 drill. The first to reach the miners was “Plan B”, early on Saturday 9.

The last step of their rescue, announced by Health Minister Jaime Mañalich, was originally due to begin on Tuesday. Laurence Golborne, Minery Minister said “If it is possible, and the cement sets before and we don’t have any impediments to doing it, it would be wonderful,” in a press conference on Monday. The men will be extracted in a steel rescue capsule 54 cm (21 inches) in diameter.

On September 4, Chilean filmmaker Rodrigo Ortúzar announced plans to film a movie about the accident, called “Los 33” (“The 33”). The film will be released in 2011.

One miner is Bolivian, and the other 32 are Chilean.

Daniel Herrera, 27 years old, is a lorry driver. He has acted as paramedic assistant in the mine. He said to La Tercera “the miners were unhappy with the psychologist in the rescue team.”

Tooth Whitening: A Blossoming Change In The World Of Cosmetic Dentistry

TOOTH WHITENING: A Blossoming Change In The World Of Cosmetic Dentistry

by

Jessica Thomson

Dental bleaching or

tooth whitening

is a common process in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Our tooth becomes darker and with age the enamel becomes less porous, giving way to several oral infections. The discoloration of the teeth could be due to several factors like consumption of alcohol and cold drinks regularly, smoking, tea, coffee, food stains, chewing of tobacco and other harmful products. Age also becomes an important factor for the deterioration of our dental conditions.

These are the external factors possible for tooth decay but apart from these, there are many internal factors like: enamel defects, salivary dysfunction, dental plaque, fissures and defects in the outer surface of the enamel.

Several people cannot take time out from their busy schedules to take better care of their health and this is one of the major reasons why procedures like Laser Teeth Whitener and Zoom Whitening are gaining fast recognition.

How does it work?

There are two types of whitening processes:- Vital Whitening and Non Vital Whitening.

1 Non Vital Whitening: Such a process is conducted on a set of teeth that have gone through a root canal treatment and no longer has a live nerve. The dentist cleans the teeth from the inner parts of the tooth, that is, he puts a whitening agent inside the tooth and put a temporary filling over it. The tooth will be left this way for several days. This process can be repeated as many times as the tooth reaches its desired shade.

2 Vital Whitening: This is the most common type of tooth whitening process. A gel-like whitening solution that is applied directly to the tooth surface. This product usually contains a form of hydrogen peroxide. One can use this gel at home also but if done at the dentist s office, the process is quite faster due to the additional use of Laser teeth whitener that speeds the process. Laser teeth whitener is a process where some whitening agents are activated by a laser light or by the heat from these lights.

Nowadays, there are many products in the market like toothpastes with higher amount of Silica and Hydrogen Peroxide that promise the same results as the whitening processes offered by the dentists.

Teeth whitening

is not a permanent solution. Once done, you should take good care of your teeth and after a few days, one can go for a re-whitening session at the dentists or take help of the home remedies like: gels, strips and lose fitting mouthpieces that are less effective.

Due to the rise in public awareness regarding dental care, there have been greater number of people opting for Laser Teeth Whitener, gels that help in Tooth Whitening and even the new processes like Zoom whitening.

It is presumed that Indians who have an access to the reading and understanding of such procedures would opt for them and decrease the chances of being effected by Oral borne diseases or even cancers.

North Korea to send head of state to South Korea for Olympics

Monday, February 5, 2018

Yesterday, North Korea announced head of state Kim Yong Nam is to attend ceremonies in Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the upcoming Winter Olympics. The proposed visit would make Kim the highest-ranking North Korean official to go to the South in several years.

The move comes after the two Koreas announced a unified team to play women’s ice hockey in the games and the North canceled a scheduled joint ceremonial display, opting instead for a military parade on their side of the Korean Demilitarized Zone.

Kim holds the title of President of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly of North Korea, a purely ceremonial role in the legislative body of North Korea. He is to head a 22-member delegation supplementing artists, athletes, coaches, and a cheer squad of over 200. The last time a high-ranking official visited the South was the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon when army leader and Workers’ Party’s Central Committee member Hwang Pyong So came to the closing ceremony. Hwang was purportedly the second most powerful man in North Korea behind supreme leader Kim Jong-un until he disappeared in late 2017.

South Korea’s Ministry of Unification announced the delegation after the unified Korean women’s ice hockey team lost to Sweden 3–1. The two nations plan to march together on February 9’s opening ceremony but the North canceled a joint cultural event, instead announcing a military parade for the day before. The allies are to hold annual joint military exercises after the Paralypmics which follow the Olympic Games.

What Does An Attorney Do?

byAlma Abell

An attorney is a skilled professional who is licensed to practice law in a specific geographical area. There are many areas in law and in most cases a lawyer will tend to service clients with a specific need rather than attempt to offer legal assistance to everyone for everything. There are considerable differences within the law and those who practice personal injury law for example are involved in totally different areas of litigation than a lawyer who serves the real estate industry. Regardless though of what facet of law they practice, there are certain commonalities that define an attorney in Rockford, IL. Following are a number of actions that all attorneys use when practicing law.

All attorneys act as the advocate of their clients. This includes providing legal advice and counsel that serves the immediate interest of the client. The attorney presents the issues surrounding the case to the legal system in such a way that the client gets the best resolution under the existing law. These dual demands placed on the attorney in Rockford, IL are best obtained when the client offers full disclosure which allows the attorney to use his in-depth knowledge of the law when advocating on behalf of the client. It is when the attorney couples intimate knowledge of the law with intimate knowledge of the circumstances of the case, that chance for justice to prevail is enhanced.

Although any attorney upon graduation from law school can advocate for any client, there is an expectation that the attorney will excel in a particular area of law. With attorneys known for specific advocacies it makes it easy for clients to hire the right attorney for the situation. An individual who seeks a divorce will not hire an attorney who is known for defending those accused of a crime for example.

It is not just the law per se that people rely on attorneys for. In many cases an attorney is asked to draw up and individuals last will and testament, create a power of attorney or assist in setting up a trust fund for a family member such as a child or grandchild. The attorney can be asked to assist in drafting contracts used in business, employment contracts as well as rental contracts.

To sum up, an attorney in Rockford, IL makes sure that all transactions are conducted in accordance with law and insures that the best interests of the client are looked after.

Clark, Justen, Zucchi & Frost, Ltd. firm offers a free consultation and there is no fee unless a recovery is obtained.
