Don’t cut the cord too fast: A pause benefits most newborns

first_imgHealthDon’t cut the cord too fast: A pause benefits most newborns An extra half minute may not seem like much, but a lot of oxygen-rich blood reaches the baby through the umbilical cord shortly after birth, said Dr. Maria Mascola of ACOG’s Committee on Obstetric Practice.advertisement WASHINGTON — Don’t cut that umbilical cord too soon: A brief pause after birth could benefit most newborns by delivering them a surge of oxygen-rich blood.New recommendations for US obstetricians, the latest in a debate over how quick to snip, suggest waiting “at least 30 seconds to 60 seconds after birth,” for all healthy newborns.That’s double what often happens now. It’s common in the US for doctors to cut the cord almost immediately, within 15 to 20 seconds of birth, unless the baby is premature.advertisement Surprising study finds possible culprit in preterm births The latest evidenceStudies began showing that babies born prematurely benefit from longer access to cord blood, with a lower risk of transfusions, anemia and bleeding in the brain. In response, ACOG recommended a pause for them.Now ACOG cites research showing full-term babies benefit, too, with a lower risk of even mild iron deficiency that can delay cognitive development. One study showed waiting 3 minutes to cut the cord led to slightly better early brain development.Today’s adviceThe World Health Organization says to wait one minute; some other groups say it’s OK to wait two minutes, or even five. ACOG settled on “at least” 30 seconds to one minute.However long the pause, it shouldn’t interfere with mom holding her baby. NIH’s Raju recommends telling parents, “While the baby’s nice and warm on your skin, we’ll take our time and then clamp.”Are there risks?Doctors won’t delay cutting if the baby has problems breathing and needs emergency care.An initial fear that delayed clamping spurs maternal bleeding has proved unfounded. But babies do need to be monitored for signs of jaundice, a risk for any newborn but one that may be slightly increased with delayed clamping.What about cord blood banking?Some parents bank their child’s umbilical cord blood for possible future medical use. Delayed cord cutting means there’s less left to store, and ACOG said families should be counseled accordingly.— Lauran Neergaard About the Author Reprints It may flow for up to five minutes, she said, but much of the placental blood transfers in that first minute — and there’s increasing evidence that it has some health benefits.Here are some things to know:Does the cord really matter once the baby breathes?It can give a boost to what Dr. Tonse Raju of the National Institutes of Health calls the amazing transition that happens as the baby takes his or her first breath.In the womb, the placenta acts as the fetus’ lungs. But within seconds of birth, the circulation changes and lungs once filled with fluid inflate as the baby inhales air. Cut access to lingering placental blood in the cord too soon, and the baby misses extra oxygen to supplement those early breaths.Before the 1960s, it wasn’t uncommon to wait five minutes or more to cut the cord. Then, for unclear reasons, doctors began clamping and cutting almost immediately.“Unfortunately, the value of immediate clamping has never been shown,” said Raju, a perinatology specialist at NIH’s National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. He wasn’t involved with the new recommendation. M.

City contractors to start survey work this month on CU Boulder South site

first_img Published: Dec. 15, 2017 City contractors will begin surveying the CU Boulder South site this month and prepare for groundwater monitoring slated to begin after the first of the year.CU Boulder owns the 308-acre parcel of land just outside the city limits southwest of Boulder. CU Boulder and the city have identified about 80 acres at the site for potential flood-mitigation purposes to provide protection to downstream neighbors.Data gathered over the next several months will inform the city’s preliminary flood-mitigation engineering efforts, how much university land will be required for flood mitigation, and future annexation discussions between CU Boulder and the Boulder City Council.Pending finalization of a city-university access agreement, site visitors can expect to see contractors walking around the property with survey equipment beginning in December.The goal of site surveying will be to gather topographic data points, information on bridges and culverts and to understand the geographic features of the CU Boulder South property.Upon completion of the surveying work, city contractors will begin drilling small wells on the property to allow for remote monitoring of groundwater levels. To do this work, they will rely on small backhoes, drilling equipment and other necessary implements.Once the work begins, surveying, construction and installation of monitoring wells will take place Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The city currently anticipates completing all phases of the work before the summer of 2018, depending on subsurface conditions and the weather.In July 2017, the city and Boulder County jointly approved the 2015 Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan update, which provides a framework for further assessment of flood mitigation and for discussions between the city and the university about future uses for the CU Boulder South property.Use of the property for city flood mitigation would require Boulder City Council approval of an annexation agreement between the city and the university.For more information visit www.colorado.edu/cubouldersouth and www.southbouldercreek.com.Categories:Deadlines & AnnouncementsCampus Community Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

Govt. Proposes Half-Yearly Report of Economy’s Performance

first_imgGovt. Proposes Half-Yearly Report of Economy’s Performance Finance & Public ServiceMay 25, 2012 RelatedGovt. Proposes Half-Yearly Report of Economy’s Performance RelatedGovt. Proposes Half-Yearly Report of Economy’s Performance By Alphea Saunders, JIS Senior Reporter Advertisements RelatedGovt. Proposes Half-Yearly Report of Economy’s Performance FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Government is proposing a half-yearly report on the performance of the economy for each fiscal year, as it seeks to further strengthen the role of Parliament in providing oversight for the country’s economic programme, and specifically, in controlling the debt. The report is being proposed  under the Financial Administration and Audit Act regulations, Minister of Finance and Planning, Hon. Dr. Peter Phillips, explained to the House of Representatives, Thursday May 24, as he opened the 2012/2013 Budget Debate, under the theme: ‘A New And Binding Covenant For Stability, Equitable Growth And Prosperity’. Dr. Phillips said the report  would be within the context of the country’s medium term economic programme, and that the Public Administration and Appropriations Committee (PAAC) would be expected to then consider, usually in November of each year,  the status of the medium term economic programme; the progress on meeting the specified fiscal targets, including the fiscal deficit/surplus and the primary surplus;  the resource and borrowing needs for the remainder of the current fiscal year; and the implications for the specified targets for the ensuing fiscal year, in the context of the medium term economic programme. “As part of this effort, the PAAC would need to indicate its views of spending priorities, borrowing needs and revenue needs for the ensuing fiscal year. Ultimately though, for these systems to work, the Parliament will need to be seized of national as distinct from sectional interests,” the Minister said. Most of all, he said, it will require a commitment to sound fiscal operations on behalf of the country and its future.  He further suggested that the new agreement will require Parliament to change its mode of operations in this regard, if proper foundations for growth are to be laid. “In expectation of this, it would probably be appropriate for Parliament to review the role of Parliament’s Tax Committee so that it can consider the mid-year report of the PAAC before the ensuing fiscal year and make recommendations in relation to revenue raising measures,” he said.last_img read more

US plans $1B pot to strip out kit from Huawei, others

After spending 10 years in journalism, he moved… Read more Related Español Author Chris Donkin A US government committee set out proposed legislation which would provide $1 billion in funding for operators to replace network equipment manufactured by Huawei and other companies deemed a security risk.The cash will be available to niche and rural operators in the country, many of which use equipment supplied by companies considered by US authorities to be a threat within their infrastructure.In a statement, leaders of The House of Representatives’ Communications and Technology Subcommittee said the proposal would help “small and rural wireless providers root-out suspect network equipment and replace it with more secure equipment”.Echoing many other statements made by US authorities on the telecommunications supply chain, the group argued the move was necessary for national security reasons as “companies such as Huawei and its affiliates can pose a significant threat to America’s commercial and security interests”.If the bill becomes law the funding will be managed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with operators required to apply to the regulator for a share.The Secure and Trusted Communications Network bill was presented by leaders of the committee and will now go through all its members before being passed through the US’ other legislative bodies.In addition to instructing the FCC to set up the $1 billion pot and open the application process, the bill formally prohibits the use of government funding to purchase equipment or services from companies considered a risk.The announcement comes a week after FCC commissioner Geoffrey Starks called on authorities to step-in and ensure rural operators do not take the financial burden of stripping-out equipment from their networks.Huawei has repeatedly denied its equipment is a security threat.

Elevated Jobless Claims Point to Weak Labor Market

first_img Email WASHINGTON – Seasonal factors boosted new requests for unemployment benefits last week as the job market remains weak amid a slow economic recovery.New claims for unemployment insurance jumped by 37,000 to a seasonally adjusted 464,000, the Labor Department said Thursday.The sharp increase comes after claims fell steeply two weeks ago to their lowest level since August 2008. But much of that drop was driven by temporary seasonal factors and not an improving job market.Two weeks ago, General Motors and other manufacturers reported fewer temporary layoffs than usual this time of year, a Labor Department analyst said. Last week’s rise partly reflects the fading of that trend.Before seasonal adjustments, claims actually fell by 13,113 to 498,022, the department said. The government seasonally adjusts most economic data to filter out the impact of recurring, non-economic factors.Still, new claims remain elevated. It’s a sign that jobs are scarce even as the economy slowly recovers from the worst recession since the 1930s.Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said the report suggests that businesses will add a net total of less than 100,000 new employees in July. That’s not enough to quickly reduce the unemployment rate, he said.“American companies … are just not hiring to any great extent,” he said. Many are still uncertain about the durability of the recovery, he said.Requests for unemployment insurance have been stuck near 450,000 since the beginning of the year, after falling steadily from a peak of 651,000 in March 2009.The weekly claims are considered a gauge of layoffs and an indication of employers’ willingness to hire.In a healthy economy with rapid hiring, claims usually fall below 400,000.The four-week average of claims, which smooths fluctuations, rose by 1,250 to 456,000, the department said.A total of nearly 4.5 million people continued claiming unemployment aid, the department said. That was a drop of 223,000 from the previous week.But that doesn’t include about 3.9 million people who received extended unemployment benefits the week of July 3, the latest data available. That figure fell by about 375,000 from the previous week because Senate Republicans had blocked an extension of long-term benefits for nearly two months.The Senate voted Wednesday to continue the benefits through November, and the House is expected to approve a similar measure Thursday. That would clear it for President Barack Obama’s signature.About 2.5 million people lost benefits due to the political impasse, but will now receive back payments because Congress restored the benefits retroactively.The economy began recovering last summer, but recently the rebound has shown signs of faltering.The housing market is slumping, consumers are cautious with spending and the impact of last year’s $787 billion stimulus package is fading.Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday the unemployment rate would gradually decline this year but at a “somewhat slower” pace than the Fed projected in the spring.The central bank forecasts the jobless rate will be between 9.2 percent and 9.5 percent in the final quarter of 2010.Bernanke said persistent unemployment is “an important drag on household spending” as it reduces incomes and causes “uncertainty about job prospects.”The unemployment rate fell to 9.5 percent in June from 9.7 percent the previous month.

There would also be more opportunities for the leading nations from the two hemispheres to play against each other.According to the report, the competition would be less demanding on players and would not involve every nation involved playing against every year. Tests would be arranged on a bilateral basis and points would be awarded that would count towards a league table, eventually resulting in a playoff stage to determine the championship winner.Crucially, the competition would be ring-fenced, strictly including only the Six Nations and Rugby Championship teams, as well as Japan and Fiji.Full StoryPhoto: Mike Hewitt/Getty Images ‘ AlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAaron Smith names South African as greatest World Cup scrumhalfSA Rugby MagUndoJapan-based Kiwi player: I hope to never experience this againSA Rugby MagUndo熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndolast_img read more

First Lady Of Atlanta Recalls ‘Pandemonium’ Of Olympics Bid

first_img This story is part of “Atlanta Remembers: The 1996 Olympics,” WABE’s series on the impact of the 1996 Summer Olympics on Atlanta, 20 years later. For more stories, click here. 16:52Sept. 18, 1990. Maynard Jackson was serving his third term as mayor when, on that September day in Tokyo, the president of the International Olympic Committee announced that Atlanta had won the bid to host the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.Jackson’s wife and first lady of Atlanta, Valerie Jackson, recently spoke with Lois Reitzes about that pivotal moment, calling the immediate reaction “pure pandemonium.” What Jackson recalls most vividly, however, is more akin to peace than pandemonium.“When Maynard pressed his hands up against his forehead and smoothed his hair back,” Valerie Jackson recalled, it was like “he had just come through a new baptism.” That same day, Maynard Jackson told the New York Times, “I’ve never felt more elated in my entire life … I felt like an exclamation point has just been laid down in the life of our city.”Long before that exclamation point was laid down in Atlanta’s history books, Maynard Jackson laid the groundwork for a robust Cultural Olympiad. In his first term as mayor, Jackson established the Office of Cultural Affairs. Reitzes called the move a “major statement.” And while Maynard and Valerie were not directly involved with the Cultural Olympiad, the Office of Cultural Affairs provided the very foundation upon which Atlanta’s arts scene could build itself a spotlight on the world stage.

Renewables to surpass gas by 2016 in the global power mix

first_imgRenewables to surpass gas by 2016 in the global power mixA new report by the IEA finds that worldwide renewable power generation will exceed that from gas and be twice that of nuclear by 2016 and make up almost a quarter of the global power mix by 2018. In 2012, global renewable generation already exceeded the total estimated electricity consumption of China. June 27, 2013 Edgar Meza Markets Markets & Policy Share Power generation from hydro, wind, solar and other renewable sources worldwide will exceed that from gas and double that of nuclear by 2016, according to a report by the International Energy Agency (IEA).The organization’s second annual Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report, published on Wednesday, predicts that renewable power will increase by 40% in the next five years despite a difficult economic context.Renewables are now the fastest-growing power generation sector and will make up almost a quarter of the global power mix by 2018, up from an estimated 20% in 2011, according to the IEA.Furthermore, the share of non-hydro sources such as wind, solar, bioenergy and geothermal in total power generation will double, reaching 8% by 2018, up from 4% in 2011 and just 2% in 2006.”As their costs continue to fall, renewable power sources are increasingly standing on their own merits versus new fossil-fuel generation,” said IEA Executive Director Maria van der Hoeven as she presented the report at the Renewable Energy Finance Forum in New York.”This is good news for a global energy system that needs to become cleaner and more diversified, but it should not be an excuse for government complacency, especially among OECD countries.”While renewables are increasing across all sectors, the report cautions that renewable development is becoming more complex and faces challenges, including a growing debate about the costs of renewable support policies in several European countries that are suffering from stagnating economies and energy demand.Van der Hoeven warned that “policy uncertainty is public enemy number one” for investors: “Many renewables no longer require high economic incentives. But they do still need long-term policies that provide a predictable and reliable market and regulatory framework compatible with societal goals. And worldwide subsidies for fossil fuels remain six times higher than economic incentives for renewables.”Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

S.Africa: topic of affordability slams nuclear viability

She is the Senior Content Producer across media brands including ESI Africa, Smart Energy International, Power Engineering International and Mining Review Africa. RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR File Picture: Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa. IOL News South African state-owned power utility, Eskom, yesterday released its interim financial results reporting that its interim profits were down 34% to R6 billion ($502 million).This staggering figure has confirmed that the parastatal’s new nuclear build plan will need to be revised in terms of affordability versus real demand.Nuclear affordabilityInterim Eskom chief financial officer Calib Cassim, stressed during the media briefing on Tuesday that the utility simply cannot afford the planned nuclear power expansion.Cassim explained that: “If I had limited funds, I can’t be worrying about the future build if I can’t sustain existing operations.”“I can’t go and commit to additional expenditure on a nuclear programme,” Cassim added.Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa raised the affordability in question, during his attendance at the World Economic Forum in Davos this month.“We have to look at where the economy is – we have excess power and we have no money to go for a major nuclear plant building,” Ramaphosa told reporters.“We have said the nuclear process will be looked at in the broad context of affordability.” Read more…In support of Ramaphosa’s vision, Earthlife Africa director Makoma Lekalakala, commented: “What I understand is that Ramaphosa is reiterating what has been said in the past, that South Africa does not have the money to build nuclear.”Nuclear: not a viable solutionProfessor Anton Eberhard and Dr Amory Lovins of UCT’s Graduate School of Business, have recently published a paper titled ‘South Africa’s Electricity Choice’, which reiterates the point that new nuclear power is not viable in South Africa.The report explains: “The South African government’s obsession over the past decade with nuclear power may finally come to an end with a new president and administration committed to restoring good governance and securing reliable electricity supply at least cost to support economic growth and development.“The inherent complexity of nuclear procurement, financing and especially construction, means no new nuclear- generated electricity could flow for at least a decade, even with immediate procurement, and then only at prices well above other electricity options.”“The risk that the project might collapse as unfinanceable, or through corruption, creates further uncertainty around South Africa’s electricity choices,” the opening of the report stated.Read the full report: ‘South Africa’s Electricity Choice’.

HomeSportsPertuset tabbed to lead the Hounds Top Searches Top Searches Seaman OhioYoungWEST UNION FOOTBALL The search to find a new boys varsity basketball coach for Manchester High School came to an end last week as the Manchester Local Board of Education tabbed 28-year old Kyle Pertuset, a 2005 graduate of Minford High School, as the new man for the Hounds for the upcoming 2015-16 season.Pertuset comes to the Greyhounds after two seasons as the varsity head coach at Lucas High School near Mansfield, where he took over a program that was in the midst of a 55-game losing streak and then managed two wins in his first season and doubled that total this past winter.“I am originally from southern Ohio and a graduate from Minford and Shawnee State University and I was fortunate enough to get the Lucas job, but I always knew that I eventually wanted to come back home,” Pertuset told The Defender in an exclusive July 4 interview. “This is a great opportunity and I was fortunate enough to get the job.”“I sent an e-mail to Manchester after I heard that the job was open and then I sent them all my information and got an interview, and about a week later here we are.”Pertuset will be working as a substitute teacher for the upcoming school year, working on his Master’s Degree as an Intervention Specialist, as well as leading the Greyhounds.Pertuset’s love for coaching began when he was in the seventh grade when he assisted in the coaching of a Pee-Wee basketball squad.“I remember when I was a youngster that I always told my Dad that if I didn’t make it as a pro basketball player, I’m going to be a coach,” said Pertuset. “I kind of figured out that the NBA wasn’t going to be in my future.”Pertuset is not coming to Manchester cold turkey, with no knowledge of the school and the Southern Hills Athletic Conference.“I’m pretty familiar with the area and the conference,” says the new Greyhound head coach. “Basketball is very important to people here and I’m excited about people’s passion for the sport, especially in the SHAC.”“It’s a great conference to play in and I did my student teaching at Peebles under Josh Arey so I had an early connection to the conference.”To catch up, Pertuset is spending countless hours watching film of last year’s Greyhound team, trying to get a feel for the personnel that he may or may not be aware of.“I have a pretty decent idea of what our strengths will be and what we can do,” said Pertuset. “Michael Walls did a nice job this summer of making sure our kids were in the gym so they didn’t get too far behind, taking them to a couple of shootouts and just keeping them playing. The kids have been down at the MEAC playing a lot so I don’t think the balls have just been laying around collecting dust. They’ve been playing so I’m feeling pretty good about the summer though I just got here.”Pertuset also talked to The Defender about what Manchester basketball fans can expect when his team hits the hardwood this winter.“We will be fundamentally sound and we will play smart,” Pertuset says. “We will take care of the basketball, rebound, and defend. I have a pretty decent idea of what we will run on offense and how we are going to play. I’m not real sure yet about how fast we will play, but if I have a choice I like to play fast and get up and down the court. I like to press so hopefully we will be able to run up and down the court, pressure the ball, and at the same time, grind it out on offense and get valuable possessions.”“If someone comes to watch us play next year, hopefully they will leave thinking we are a smart basketball team that does things the right way.”Pertuset has coaching experience in his pocket, beginning with two years as the junior high coach at Minford, where he also assisted with the varsity squad. From there, he moved on to Piketon for two years in the same role, junior high coach and varsity assistant, followed by the aforementioned two years at Lucas High School.Pertuset comes to Manchester with goals for the program, from the youngest players all the way to the varsity squad.“I want everyone to be on the same page,” says Pertuset. “The youth leagues and junior high are your feeder programs where it all starts. Those kids are your future so I want to sit down with all the youth basketball coaches about what we need to have put in place when the time comes and get it rolling.”“I eat, sleep, and breathe basketball and I’m a student of the game and I don’t think a day has gone by in the last eight to ten years that I haven’t at least looked at some kind of basketball. I’m obsessed with the game and it never feels like a job to me.”With Pertuset hired as the varsity head man, Walls will be moving up to the boys JV position, while Collin Flannery will be leading the junior high programs for the Hounds. Kyle Pertuset, shown here on the sidelines for Lucas High School, will be on the sidelines at Manchester High School for the 2015-16 season as the new boys varsity coach of the Greyhounds. last_img read more
