India and a hundred years of ILO

first_imgVery much like us humans, institutions are mortal too. They too are born, grow, peak and die. The similarities go further. Like us, most institutions die in their infancy. And only a few—very few—live up to be a hundred years old. It is then something very heartening that the United Nation’s Specialised Agency, the International Labour Organisation—more commonly known to us as ILO—has completed a hundred this year 2019. Yes, ILO was set up one hundred years ago in 1919, having come into being as a part of the League of Nations that was established under the Treaty of Versailles — the treaty that ended the first world war. Also Read – A special kind of bondIt is then something of a contradiction that the League of Nations itself died young, within 20 years of its birth. It could not withstand the onslaught of Nazism and Hitler’s gruesome ambition. Like any ordinary building in the Poland of 1939 that Hitler invaded to inaugurate the Second World War, the League of Nations collapsed when the first bombs rained on Warsaw. But not ILO. ILO survived the League of Nations and the bloody Second World War, one of the very few organisations—a significant other being the World Health Organisation (WHO)—within the League of Nations to do so. And when in 1945, the United Nations was born post-San Francisco Conference, ILO became one of the first specialised agencies of the UN. Also Read – Insider threat managementA year earlier in 1944, reeling from the genocide of Jews in Europe that followed in the wake of Nazi Germany, the Declaration of Philadelphia had restated the traditional objectives of ILO and then gone on to add a significant other, the centrality of human rights to social policy. I was profoundly fortunate to have worked in ILO for 20 years and oftentimes wondered where the longevity and the resilience that has enabled ILO to last for so long, comes from. And I have realised that the resilience and the longevity come from the fundamentals upon which ILO has been built, the fundamental being the importance that ILO has always placed, then as now on promoting and ensuring social justice. It comes from ILO’s strong underlying belief that lasting peace comes not from growth and development alone, but when such growth and development go hand in hand with social justice and equity for all. As the Philadelphia Declaration of 1944 would remind us, there can also be no social justice or equity without human rights. For growth without equity, and social justice that is strongly based on human rights and fundamental human freedoms is unsustainable. ILO’s strength comes from its strong certainty and conviction that poverty anywhere constitutes a threat to prosperity everywhere. It believes that prosperity cannot be sustained merely through government policies and programmes (though these are very important) or through profit-making, job-giving businesses, industries and corporate (though these are also very important) but that sustainable prosperity and therefore lasting peace will happen only when, governments, businesses, industries and corporates join hands with workers and employees to establish a 3-party, or as we in ILO would say a tripartite collaboration, where governments, employers and employees can work with each other for equitable growth for everyone, everywhere. ILO then is the only UN Agency that is tripartite in nature with equal representation for the governments of countries that are its members as well as representation for the employers and workers of every such member country. Thus, while the UN and its other specialised agencies such as for example, the UNICEF, WHO, etc., have only the governments represented in them, in ILO, not only the governments but representatives of employers and workers organisations of all member countries are also members of ILO. How then does ILO work? Just as our Parliament pass national laws which are enforceable in the country, ILO lays down international standards which are international laws. These international laws come in the form of ILO Conventions. ILO adopts various international Conventions at it’s annual International Labour Conference (ILC) that is held every year in Geneva in the month of June. ILC is truly a world tripartite parliament consisting of governments, employers, and workers representatives of its 187 member countries. The International Labour Conference then is the world’s largest forum of governments, employers and workers and no doubt represents the largest number of peoples across the world. The International Conventions that ILO adopts are international laws, or international standards as they are called, which once ratified by a member country has the force of an international treaty and is binding on the ratifying country. Let me pause here to show how much of ILOs work in the past 100 years is today an unconscious part of our global collective thinking. Many of what we today consider common-place social thoughts, which are an inherent part of our thinking, are actually contributions of ILO, absorbed globally across countries, through the many Conventions that ILO has adopted in these years. Thus, the concept of 8 hours work, 8 hours rest and 8 hours recreation, the concept of payment for overtime, work beyond 8 hours, the concept of rests after certain intervals of work, are contributions of ILO to our thinking and to our laws. These thoughts were of course derived by small and large groups agitating against long hours of work in sweat-shops across Europe and the US. But their universal acceptance by governments and businesses and most vitally as an inalienable right of all of us – for verily we are all workers – was ILO’s contribution. The concept of equal pay for equal work, which lay the foundation of gender equity in the workplace is another contribution of ILO to our thinking and laws. While no doubt UNICEF and UN itself have played a great part in universalising the concept of child rights, the abolition of child labour and the concept that the right place for a child is school and not workplace is itself yet another contribution of ILO’s conventions. The abolition of forced labour and bonded labour is another ILO contribution. Similarly, the essential necessity for social protection and for putting in place social safety nets that are now gaining ground even in India is a contribution of ILO to global social thought. During the 100 years of its existence, ILO has adopted 189 Conventions that lay down standards at the workplace thus contributing to social justice, equity, and peace. It is then worth repeating that ILO derives its strength, resilience, and longevity from the principles of equity and social justice linked to human rights. India is particularly fortunate to have had a very long association with ILO, and vice versa. ILO has benefitted from India’s many contributions to it. India is a Founding Member of ILO when way back in 1919 India was still a British colony. India and ILO have since then influenced each other in many ways. In 1928, ILO opened an office in New Delhi. Since then, there has been a strong and continuing consistency between ILO’s and India’s development and social goals. The Indian Labour Conference which meets regularly every year is itself modelled on ILO’s ILC. India has been the recipient of many important Technical Cooperation Programmes of ILO. India, for example, was the first country to join ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC). For many years India continued to have the largest IPEC programme anywhere in the world. However, there are some downsides in India’s relations with ILO as well. For example, the pace of ratification of ILO’s conventions has been rather tardy, the country has ratified only 47 of ILO’s 189 Conventions. Notably and a bit strangely, India has not yet ratified ILO Convention No. 87 which ensures the freedom to form associations and the protection of workers to organise. This despite our Constitution’s Article 19 granting every citizen the fundamental right to freedom of association. Another serious shortcoming has been historical and continuing deficiency of Indian officials in ILO, especially at the senior-most levels. Because of the UN’s convoluted system of basing the appointment of its officials on an archaic quota system, India has always had far fewer officials in ILO than its economic and political strength, its population, workforce, and particularly its workforce in the non-formal sectors for whom social justice and equity are paramount, and the globally proven leadership skills and abilities that Indian managers have shown across global corporates and business would have prescribed. The quota system ensures that not only the number of Indians in ILO continues to be very insignificant, but that they do not rise very high in the system. For a long time after 1919 when India joined ILO, India had only 3 Indian officials there. Even at the time of Independence, India had only 6 officials. This disappointing trend continues, and the numbers of Indians in ILO continue to be insignificant even today. Also very notably, in its 100 years of membership to ILO, there was never ever an Indian as the Director General of ILO. This is a glaring lacuna that needs to be immediately rectified. In the centennial year of India’s association with ILO, the government of India should strongly push to ensure that the next Director General of the ILO is from India. So what is the future of the ILO? The answer is simple. So long as there is work and a workplace, so long as there are jobs, and businesses, industry and corporates, so long as there are employees and employers, ILO will continue to exist, because of its objectives of bringing in a lasting peace through social justice and equity for all. Finally, it is interesting to recall that ILO was the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1969, fifty years ago, fifty years after it was established in 1919. If 50 years ago, ILO deserved the Nobel Peace Prize, in today’s angry world of protectionism, of barriers to migration, of isolationism, of continuing gender inequity, of anti-people and anti-worker sentiment, ILO deserves the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize; not for itself, but for emphasising the continuing importance of social justice and human rights for sustainable prosperity and lasting peace across the world. And most of all, for ensuring that poverty, which exists in abundant measure across the world today, does not pose a threat to the visibly growing prosperity in many pockets around the world. I hope that ILO wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize so that it can strengthen its continuing fight for these outcomes. Is the Nobel Peace Committee Listening?

Wisroc community gets ICT hub

The Wisroc community at Wismar, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) is one of the most recent to benefit from an Information Communication Technology hub. Located at the Stacy Walters Library, this newest hub is equipped with 10 laptop computers and Internet access.The new ICT hub at Wisroc, LindenAccording to Senior Social Management Officer of the National Data Management Authority, Jasmaine Payne, the main aim of the initiative is to ensure online access to Government services.“One of our main missions is to ensure that we bring Government services online; and so the ITC hubs that we have across the country — this will be the 128th across the country — will help to first give access to poor, hinterland and remote communities… “We have been working over the last several years to ensure that we bring these services to the communities, so that when we bring Government services online, they already have access,” she explained.While such hubs are usually placed in Government-owned buildings, calls have been made for collaboration with non-governmental organisations so as to take the service to more communities. Owner of the library, overseas-based Guyanese Ingrid Walters, has said she is pleased to have the hub situated at the location. The library is utilised mainly by residents of Wisroc.“I’m very pleased that the Government has stepped up and decided that they are going to do something with this building, like utilising some of the space we have here. It’s very expensive for me to keep filling this place with books. I’m overwhelmed”, she said. The hub will be managed by a committee which is expected to ensure smooth operation.

Man who shot 4 police officers during standoff in Bankers Hill sentenced

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: May 18, 2018 KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Man who shot 4 police officers during standoff in Bankers Hill sentenced to 20 years in prison May 18, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A man who shot at four police officers after holing up in his ex-girlfriend’s condominium in Bankers Hill was sentenced Friday to 20 years in state prison.As his trial entered its eighth week last month, Titus Colbert pleaded guilty to four counts of assault with a firearm on a peace officer.He admitted firing at two San Diego police officers who attempted to gain access to one of the bedrooms in the condominium and later shooting at two SWAT officers who were trying to position themselves on the roof of the building.Related Story: Former girlfriend of Bankers Hill SWAT standoff suspect says he was having a mental breakdownColbert, 36, had faced multiple life terms behind bars if convicted of premeditated attempted murder of a peace officer and assault with a semiautomatic weapon, charges that were dismissed as a result of the plea bargain.Colbert, who throughout his time in custody spoke out in court, saying he had special powers and was part of the New World Order, made a brief statement after Judge Louis Hanoian pronounced the stipulated sentence.“I apologize for my actions,” the defendant said. “And thank you for treating me so well.”Deputy District Attorney Michael Runyon said Colbert took two rifles and a revolver belonging to his roommate in Las Vegas and showed up at his former girlfriend’s condo in Bankers Hill a few days before his Nov. 4, 2015, arrest.Related Story: Bankers Hill suspect lashes out in court, judge orders him to leaveAccording to Runyon, the morning of the shooting, Colbert’s ex-girlfriend, Ashley Davies, realized he had broken into her complex and sent him a text saying: “You’re trespassing! You’re going to jail!”Colbert responded by texting, “(Expletive), I’m going to be a star. (Expletive) you for putting my life in danger,” the prosecutor said.When officers responded to Davies’ sixth-floor condo near the roof of the complex, a shot rang out from behind her door and an officer returned fire, according to Runyon.The prosecutor said officers retreated and more shots were fired at them and members of a SWAT team.Hours later, police observed a rifle, revolver and a magazine for a rifle being thrown out of the window from where Colbert was holed up, Runyon said. After Colbert’s arrest, officers found 17 expended casings and another rifle under a pile of clothes in the room, the prosecutor said.Defense attorney Melissa Tralla told the jury that Colbert had a psychotic break and was paranoid and delusional. She said that days before, Colbert had called Davies at least 50 times and was rambling and not acting right.The attorney said Colbert was showing signs of mental illness by age 6, and was diagnosed with schizophrenia by age 15. last_img read more

51 of employers view mental health as biggest threat to staff health

first_imgAround half (51%) of employer respondents believe that mental health conditions are the biggest threat to their employees’ health over the next five years, according to research by Axa PPP Healthcare.Its study of 1,000 managers in organisations employing 50 or more staff, also found that 78% of respondents feel they have some responsibility for their employees’ health.The research also found:44% of respondents believe obesity or a high body mass index is the biggest threat to employee health over the next five years, while 30% feel high blood pressure poses the greatest risk.74% of respondents work for a business that has an employee health and wellbeing strategy in place.67% of respondents think that technology will play an increasingly important part in their organisation’s health and wellbeing strategy over the next five years.58% of respondents which do not currently have a health and wellbeing strategy in place are planning to introduce one within the next few years.Chris Horlick (pictured), distribution director at Axa PPP Healthcare, said: “Employee wellbeing is one factor employers can do something about; and [it is] well worth doing so [because] employees who are mentally and physically well will have the resilience to drive better business performance.“To achieve this, it’s important for employers to consider their workforce as a whole and introduce health and wellbeing strategies that also tackle any specific health needs.“It’s essential to provide solutions that support healthy, active lives and, for employees who should become ill or injured, provide early access to investigation and treatment for an early recovery and return to work.“The extent of employers’ interest in employee health and wellbeing and their acknowledgment that they have some responsibility for employee health are both welcome findings. The challenge is to turn this goodwill into meaningful action through a more strategic approach to health and wellbeing management programmes that deliver measurable, sustainable benefits to employees and employers alike.”last_img read more

Ironcast is a Steampunk Metal Gear Puzzle Game

first_imgStay on target Controller Patent Teases SNES Games on SwitchPlay These Nintendo Switch Games Before ‘Pokemon Sword and Shield&… If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.One of the most absurd things about the Metal Gear series, a series that includes characters like CIA Director Hot Coldman and old people hypnotizing themselves through arm implants, is the concept of the Metal Gear itself. “The missing link between infantry and artillery” or “the weapon that learned to walk upright,” they’re just tanks with legs that shoot nukes. But the games treat them like this apocalyptic game-changer even though in this world your corpse can turn into a fire demon if you’re consumed with enough revenge.Ironcast by Dreadbit, now available on Nintendo Switch, is very different from Metal Gear. It’s a quick puzzle game, not a protracted stealth game. And it’s about a fantasy version of Victorian Europe military, not modern global military. But like Metal Gear, it shares a fascination with tanks with legs. Also like Metal Gear, Ironcast is generally pretty great.AdChoices广告Ironcast is set in an alternate 1800s where England and France are at war with each other, and much of the fighting is conducted with great steam-powered war machines. Your initial playable character is Welsh socialite Aeres Powell and you can unlock a mech called The Warwick. Suffice it to say, Ironcast is very steampunk. It’s certainly not the most obnoxious steampunk aesthetic we’ve ever seen (that dubious honor belongs to Nintendo’s own Codename Steam). And the 2D art is quite lovely in how it renders the creaky analog anitque technology. But if you’re allergic to all things Jules Verne you’re going to bounce off quick.If you stick around you though you’ll be rewarded with Ironcast’s peculiar combination of roguelike, turn-based strategy, and match-3 puzzle game mechanics. As the pilot of an Ironcast robot, you’ll engage in a series of one-on-one skirmishes with enemy vehicles. The machine has a complex array of functions, and to operate them you must match the right tiles on a puzzle grid.Ammo tiles let you fire one of your weapons. Energy tiles let you raise your shield or start walking to make yourself harder to hit. Repair tiles let you reverse damage done to specific systems, even if your overall health can only be restored outside of battle. And cooling tiles counteract the harmful overheating activating other systems causes. There are also special tiles for linking chains together, earning extra cash, and powering up chains.During your turn, you can perform as many actions as your tile resources allow, but you can only make two matches. That leaves you with a lot of decisions to make during each turn. Should I focus on defense and repair? Maybe I can take out the opponent before I fall apart? You can only store so many tiles at once, so instead of making one massive chain maybe I should save some tiles on the board for later?As you level up and earn cash, you’ll also be able to customize your Ironcast, opening up your strategic options. A good early ability is the cluster of rockets you can fire every four turns, a free attack that doesn’t need any ammo tiles. However, energy shields are resistant against rockets. So a good combo is to target enemy defense specifically with an upgraded shield-piercing laser, and then hit the exposed underbelly with rockets once the shields are down.You’ll have to learn tricks like this because Ironcast gets tough fast. Initial missions are pretty standard fights but later you’ll be dealing with waves of enemies or specific win conditions like avoid damaging enemy armor. These shifting requirements keep you from relying on any one particular set of tactics for too long.Unfortunately, this mission structure is presented in a roguelike fashion. Once you die you have the restart from scratch. Knowing my purchases wouldn’t last kept me from engaging with upgrades outside of missions even though they’re crucial for finishing the game. It’s a negative feedback loop. The only upgrades I could care about are the permanent ones you unlock with currency gained after each run. But at that point why not just make the whole game persistent? That’s the roguelike question, isn’t it.Also, with its focus on puzzle duels, it’s a little odd Ironcast is only a single-player game. Puyo Puyo Tetris alone is proof enough that multiplayer puzzle games work fantastic on Switch. You wouldn’t even need to worry about Joy-Con controls slowing you down since it’s all turn-based.I opened this review comparing Ironcast to Metal Gear, but its surprisingly complementary genre mishmash also reminded me of another absurd mech game: Steel Battalion. Controlling a giant robot with puzzles may not be as cumbersome as controlling a giant robot with a 40-button controller (or your own body on Kinect) but it’s equally silly. Ironcast’s strategy gameplay makes you think and that’s cool, but the silliness of its existence is what makes it a great video game.Want to learn more?

Clint Eastwood – The Quintessential Cowboy who was Allergic to Horses

first_imgWhen one thinks of Westerns one of the most recognizable figures to pop up is Clint Eastwood. Picture Clint in his iconic roles throughout his long career, from his star-making turn in A Fistful of Dollars (1964) to the Academy Award-winning Unforgiven (1992), from High Plains Drifter (1973) to Pale Rider (1985). You likely conjure his chiseled face, scruffy beard, and flat-brimmed hat, and you probably imagine his hands holding reins. Because he was almost always atop a horse. Only one problem: Clint Eastwood is allergic to horses.Clinton Eastwood, Jr. was born May 31, 1930, in San Francisco, California. Though his family moved often when he was young, he was raised in relative privilege. His home had a pool, and from an early age, he was athletic, a swimmer interested in healthy eating. As a young man, he worked as a lifeguard, a forest fighter, and golf caddy. He was drafted into the Army during the Korean War, though he didn’t see action, serving instead as a lifeguard at Fort Ord in Northern California.While stationed at Fort Ord, Eastwood met a young movie assistant who’d later help him land his first audition in Hollywood. A few minor movie roles followed, but Eastwood finally got a breakthrough when he landed the part of Rowdy Yates on the hit CBS Western series Rawhide, which ran for eight seasons, and set the stage for his future career. During the Rawhide years, Clint cashed in by performing with other cast members at rodeos for as much as $15,000 a time.Publicity photo for Rawhide, 1961In 1963, after the show went off the air, his Rawhide co-star Eric Fleming suggested Eastwood for the spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars, to be directed by the then little known Sergio Leone. The film, which introduced a more desolate and unforgiving terrain than traditional Westerns, made a star of Eastwood. He reprised his character, The Man With No Name, in the classic followups, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The role became uber-Eastwood: gravely voiced, mysterious, not necessarily law-abiding but principled in his own way, a man of few words, though they were memorable and oft-repeated, and who, yes, almost always rode a horse. Ah-choo!As with allergies to cats and dogs, allergic reactions to horse are usually triggered by the animal’s dander, or flecks of skin and hair. Horse urine, saliva, and sweat can also trigger a reaction. Highly allergic people can have a reaction to clothing or equipment that has come in contact with a horse. Symptoms include red, watery eyes, sneezing, a runny nose, hives, and rashes. Antihistamines can help relieve symptoms.Other celebrities allergic to horses include Rachel McAdams, Kate Middleton, Sandra Bullock, Ellen Pompeo, and Gordon Ramsay.At a film shoot for The Eiger Sanction (1975) Photo: Beat Albrecht -CC BY-SA 4.0As it happens, Clint Eastwood is allergic to cats and dogs too. He likely suffered sneezing and sniffling in1978’s Every Which Way But Loose opposite his co-star—an orangutan.The Fistful trilogy was savaged by critics; some called Eastwood’s acting “wooden,” though a few conceded his coolness. Even so, the movies were box-office successes and established Eastwood as a major star, which has hardly dimmed in his nearly 60-year career.As the Man with No Name in A Fistful of Dollars (1964)Eastwood has appeared in 50 films over the years. A trained pianist, he has scored several of his own films, including Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino. He has four Oscars—Best Picture and Best Director for Unforgiven; and Best Picture and Best Director for Million Dollar Baby. In the late 1980s, he served a two-year term as mayor of the wealthy boho town of Carmel-by-the Sea, California.As he approaches 90, Eastwood practices meditation has never smoked, eats healthfully, and continues to work: He directed Tom Hanks in the box-office hit Sully in 2016 and recently released a biographical thriller, The 15:17 to Paris, about an attempted terrorist train attack.Eastwood at the 2010 New York Film Festival Photo:Raffi Asdourian – Flickr CC BY 2.0Eastwood’s most recent cinematic efforts haven’t included horses. But if he were to return to riding, Horse Nation has a suggestion. Bashkir Curlies, a breed of horse known for its curly hair, are hypoallergenic. “Most people who are allergic to horses can handle them without suffering any allergic reaction,” Horse Nation reports. “Research indicates that a protein is missing from the hair of Curlies that may be what causes allergic reactions in allergy sufferers.”Related story from us: Eli Wallach almost got killed three times during the filming of Sergio Leone’s “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”Even better news, according to the International Curly Horse Organization (yes, there is such a thing): Curlies are hard-working, easily trained horses well suited for western work.

In the case of picture archiving and communications systems (PACS), that meant assembling the people, pieces and technology that go into rolling out imaging to radiology, cardiology, oncology and so on. I have asked the same questions many of you do — questions such as: Where is the data? How do clinicians get to it? Who owns it? How do we protect it? What is the optimal solution design? When you can address these basic questions, then you can determine how to make the information available so it is not only fluid, but requires a minimal amount of resources. However, we often get so caught up in the details of what to do at the department level to improve workflow that the big picture of how to spread imaging to the entire enterprise is lost. When considering when and where to store and access the vast amount of data, you cannot miss the forest for the trees. Leveraging Vendor-Neutral Archives Many healthcare systems are finding themselves in the same situation. Their general PACS and cardiology PACS are both aging, their image storage is reaching capacity, and the budget has been allocated for the implementation of an electronic health record (EHR) solution. In this climate, how do the diagnostic imaging departments address the needs of their cardiologists and radiologists, the needs of other clinicians and patients for automated, reliable information at the point of care as well as the hospital’s business needs to achieve meaningful use for their EHR? The trend in the industry has been to separate the PACS application from the image data and workflow engines, earning the title of vendor neutral archive. When I hear this terminology, I tend to cringe. Can a vendor ever be neutral? Of course not. But the image repository or archive can be neutral. That is why I prefer the term PACS neutral archive. Instead of locking you into a specific imaging system, images can be stored and retrieved from the neutral archive because it was built to exchange data with disparate systems. The basic need — to share data outside the walls of diagnostic imaging — becomes more important as organizations continue implementing EHRs. Imaging, of course, is a key component to providing the complete picture of the patient’s health, and in the same respect being able to simplify access to those images becomes more and more paramount to facilitating the care continuum.Earlier this year, when leaders at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare (MLH), a not-for-profit health system based in Memphis, Tenn., saw the opportunity to standardize their suite of diagnostic imaging solutions, they capitalized on it. The seven-hospital system made the decision to deploy McKesson’s portfolio of enterprise medical imaging products across its various facilities to help improve physician collaboration, streamline data management and simplify its imaging archive process with a single point of access.“By deploying these solutions together, we can improve workflow efficiency for our clinicians and decrease the complexity of our current IT infrastructure,” said Alastair MacGregor, senior vice president and chief healthcare information officer, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare. “In doing so, we expect to reduce our cost of ownership. We also will be able to consolidate information that’s essential for making diagnoses, which will enable our medical and clinical staff to make more informed decisions faster.” MLH will leverage McKesson Enterprise Image Repository, a PACS neutral archive, and McKesson Study Share, a Web-based knowledge management system, to help simplify enterprise-wide access to imaging information from both McKesson Radiology and McKesson Cardiology. Physicians will now have the ability to chat, launch a context-sensitive case for review, agree or disagree on the assessment, and immediately go back to their normal workflow from any computer. The ability to launch studies from either system with immediate notifications will help improve image management and staff collaboration. By reducing the complexity of interfaces across the enterprise, MLH plans to not only be able to improve decision support, but will also be able to lower the costs associated with interfaces and help decrease the need for future migrations.Consider the Architecture of the SystemWhether you have already implemented an EHR or are about to undertake an implementation, it is important to establish an architecture that syncs the workflow and technology solutions with the management of the image archive. There should also be consideration to expand the manageability and size of the archive to include all imaging sources and types. The architecture should allow the site to leverage and choose whatever cardiology, radiology or other ology system that fits their workflow and business needs while at the same time using the enterprise archive technology to connect the entire imaging enterprise. Now is the right time to look at your organization’s global imaging archive strategy. Besides the complexity of adding EHRs, healthcare organizations must also navigate the waters of continually growing image volume and the rapid consumption of imaging resources. All of these business challenges can be minimized with the right archive architecture and workflow solution.The paths to an enterprise archive and data access may not be identical for everyone, but every long-term strategy should consider the forest as well as the trees.   About the author: Thomas Coppa has many years of experience working on the enterprise IT team at Iowa Health System as an infrastructure architect, and was part of a team that led the charge toward an enterprise-wide solution for image data management. Currently, he is the technical consultant with McKesson Enterprise Image Repository.

Cuba acknowledges 51 cholera cases

first_imgTuesday’s Public Health Ministry statement _ carried in the Communist Party newspaper Granma and elsewhere _ made no mention of any cholera cases reported outside Havana.While Cuba’s state-run media had been largely silent about cholera before Tuesday, there has been an intensified campaign against water-borne diarrhetic illnesses, of which cholera is one. Several health centers in the capital require visitors to sanitize their shoes by stepping in chlorine when they enter, and state schools have been stressing hand-washing and other hygiene measures.While some have voiced nervousness over the outbreak, many said they were confident the government had a strong handle on the outbreak.Beatriz Guerra, a 26-year-old mother of two who lives in Miramar, said a state-run school attended by her eldest son was closed briefly last week to clean and disinfect the rooms and furniture. She said residents had been advised at neighborhood meetings to take precautions and be particularly vigilant of what their children were touching and putting in their mouth.“I know that they are taking the necessary measures,” she said. “One just needs to be very cautious.” (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) The government has not responded to repeated requests for comment in recent months, nor has it made any experts available to talk about the cholera situation. The family of one man, 46-year-old Ubaldo Pino Rodriguez, told The Associated Press last week that he died of cholera in Cerro on Jan. 2, about two weeks after going to the hospital with severe vomiting.Rodriguez’s sister, Yanise Pino, said her brother had a drinking problem and lived in squalid and unhygienic conditions in a tiny makeshift wooden dwelling.“When he began to feel bad he thought it was from drinking and nothing else,” she said, adding that he left the hospital of his own accord last month. She said that following his death authorities sealed off Ubaldo’s room and told her to burn all his belongings.Juan Bautista Ferrera, a retiree in Havana’s Miramar neighborhood, told AP that he was hospitalized with cholera for five days last week after suffering severe diarrhea.“I was isolated in a room and nobody could come to see me. I communicated with my wife by phone,” he said, adding he never worried about his life. “I’m 75 years old and I don’t fear anything. The medical attention was very good so I never thought for a minute I could die of it.” Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories Associated PressHAVANA (AP) – Cuba’s Public Health Ministry on Tuesday acknowledged 51 new cases of cholera in the capital amid growing concerns about the illness’ spread and disappointment in the diplomatic community over the government’s lack of transparency.The ministry said nobody had died from the latest outbreak, which began Jan. 6, and stressed that preventive measures already taken had put the disease “on the way to extinction.” It said cholera was first detected in the capital’s Cerro neighborhood, and then spread elsewhere. No other areas of the capital were mentioned, but there have been reports of cases in the leafy Playa neighborhood that is home to many foreign embassies. Several other European diplomats have told AP they are also considering issuing advisories, and have been concerned that the government is not sharing information with them in a timely manner. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.Tourism is the top sector in Cuba’s flagging Communist economy, with 2.8 million visitors a year and about $2.5 billion in annual revenue. A major cholera outbreak is sure to make some visitors think twice about a trip, despite Cuba’s sterling reputation in responding to epidemics and natural disasters.The island has a well-organized civil defense system capable of rapidly mobilizing government agencies and citizens groups. Brigades of workers go door to door, noisily fumigating homes and admonishing residents to eliminate standing water where mosquitos bearing another tropical disease, dengue, could breed.American tourists are barred from visiting Cuba due to the half-century old economic embargo, but 400,000 Cuban-Americans come down each year for family visits, and about 100,000 others get licenses to come on cultural or other exchanges. There have been no reports so far of any tourists coming down with the illness. Quick workouts for men ____Follow Paul Haven on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/paulhaven Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Ferrera’s wife, Caridad Neyes, said health workers gave them chlorine to clean their home and also handed out medicine. She said several restaurants in the neighborhood were closed but have since reopened.Cholera is a waterborne disease caused by a bacteria found in tainted water or food. It can kill within hours through dehydration, but is treatable if caught in time. Cholera is unusual in Cuba. But recent outbreaks in nearby Haiti have killed more than 7,200 people.It was unclear why a new outbreak was being seen in Havana. Rains, which can help spread the disease, are common in January, but the weather has been unusually dry this year.In August, Cuba announced that a cholera outbreak had run its course after sickening 417 people and leaving three dead. That outbreak originated in the eastern city of Manzanillo, in Granma province. Some have speculated the epidemic gained new life following the widespread devastation caused in October by Hurricane Sandy, which damaged more than 200,000 homes in eastern Cuba.On Tuesday, the British Embassy in Havana issued a travel advisory in response to the cholera reports, urging its citizens to take “sensible precautions” and seek immediate medical attention for diarrhea. U.S. diplomats on the island issued a travel warning Monday urging American citizens to follow local health recommendations.
