first_imgHealth officials confirm first flu death of this year’s flu season August 21, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, Posted: August 21, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Health officials today confirmed the first influenza- related death of the 2019/2020 flu season in San Diego County.The county’s Health and Human Services Agency reported that a 74-year-old Chula Vista man died Aug. 15 due to complications from Influenza B. The man, whose name was withheld, also had additional medical issues, according to county health officials.The county tracks flu activity year-round during each flu season, which corresponds with the county’s fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. Health officials didn’t confirm the first flu death in each of the last two flu seasons until October.“Influenza deaths can occur at any time since influenza circulates throughout the year,” said Dr. Dean Sidelinger, the county’s interim deputy public health officer. “The elderly, pregnant women and those with underlyingmedical conditions are at higher risk of developing complications from influenza.”Since July 1, health officials have confirmed 106 flu cases throughout the county. At this time in the last two flu seasons, officials had confirmed just 26 cases in 2018 and 114 in 2017. The 2017/2018 flu season resulted in 342 flu-related deaths, the most since the county began tracking flu data nearly 20 years ago.The season’s flu vaccine will not be widely available around the county until September, according to local officials. Certain local pharmacies and health clinics may have the vaccine before then, however. Residents can check if the vaccine is available near them by searching their ZIP code at cdc.gov/flu/freeresources/flu-finder-widget.html.County health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly advise the annual flu vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, especially in demographics with a heightened risk of serious complications.Residents can take precaution against contracting the virus by frequently washing their hands, cleaning commonly touched surfaces and avoiding contact with sick people.“It’s important to practice good hand hygiene and stay home if you are sick to avoid infecting others,” Sidelinger said. “People should cover their mouth when causing and sneezing to prevent the spread of germs.” KUSI Newsroom last_img read more

BCL Juba League men in drug dealing at 6 edu institutions

0 Comment

first_imgA total of 24 people, including seven leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League and two Juba League men, are involved in drug dealing in six educational institutions of the capital.A sub-inspector of police is also involved in the drug trading, according to the home ministry’s latest list of drug dealers. Three private universities – Eastern University, United International University and World University – are on the list. The list also includes Dhaka University’s Institute of Leather Engineering and Technology, Jagannath University and Dhaka College.The home ministry list of drug peddlers in educational institutions reveals that Md Parvez, Md Showrav, Md Tushan, Md Jewel and Md Samrat, all of them BCL activists of the Jagannath University unit, are involved in the drug trade on the campus. An employee of the university cafeteria, Anwar Hossain, is on the list. “We are struggling to locate the students as the list doesn’t give their full names,” said Jagannath University proctor Nur Mohammad when asked about the matter.The proctor added that one man has so far been identified.About the cafeteria employee, the proctor said, “We have confirmed that he is not involved in drug peddling.”Earlier on 25 August 2011, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained Joynal Abedin aka Russel, general secretary of university’s BCL unit, among three others with 522 yaba pills from the capital’s Shantinagar area.Though Joynal was caught red handed with 200 yaba pills, he denied his arrest to Prothom Alo.The home ministry list did not include Joynal Abedin’s name.Monir, a sub-inspector of New Market police outpost, and two others were found involved in the drug trade on Dhaka College campus.Two others were named as Mamun and Md Polash.Prothom Alo investigation identified a few hot spots of the drug trade around the college campus. Priyangan Shopping Mall’s lane, the lane opposite Eastern Mollika Shopping Mall, Bakusha Market’s Babupura Gali, the road behind New Market, and the third gate of BGB headquarters are on the list.Asked about the SI, Md Atikur Rahman, an officer-n-charge of the Newmarket police station, said seven or eight months ago, Monir was in this police station. Senior officials are investigating the matter after receiving the list.Raisul Islam aka Robin, Md Rajib, Md Sohel, Md Alauddin and Mosammat Jamila are involved in the drug trade on the campus of Hazaribag’s Institute of Leather Engineering and Technology.An officer of Hazaribag police station, on anonymity, said Raisul Islam is an organising secretary of Juba League unit in Hazaribag area. Hazaribag police station’s inspector Mojubur Rahman said Jamila is a professional drug peddler while Sohel faces several cases filed with the police station.Former president of BCL’s Dhanmondi unit, Sujauddin Tuhin, general secretary SS Ashfaq and Rashedur Rahman, Md Pavel, Md Jasim and Moshiur Alam aka Sohag are in the drug trade in the three private universities.Sujauddin Tuhin and SS Ashfaq denied such charges.Kalabagan police station inspector ASM Asaduzzaman told Prothom Alo, they could not find Rashedur Rahman, Md Pavel and Md Jasim at the addresses given in the home ministry’s documents.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Toriqul Islam.last_img read more

Ambiguity Surrounds Metropolitan Police Use of Force Policy

0 Comment

first_imgCouncilman Andy King, left, holds a sign as he marches with dozens of protestors just west of the Outerbridge Crossing in New Jersey on their way to Washington, Monday, April 13, 2015. The group, which plans to reach the nations capital next week, is protesting numerous police shootings across the nation. (AP Photo/Northjersey.com, Kevin R. Wexler)In the wake of high profile killings such as Walter Scott, Eric Garner, and Michael Brown, use of force by police officers is now a national discussion that has a history in Washington, D.C.In 1998 the Washington Post reported that the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) was the deadliest police force in America.Though MPD’s reputation improved, following the establishment of a Memorandum of Agreement between the city, MPD and Department of Justice in 2001, the agreement was recommended for early termination, ending in 2008, under the condition that the department continues to meet its reporting requirements.Residents and local organizations remain concerned with the use of force by MPD, which is a conversation MPD is reluctant to have. “We’re not going to discuss our Use of Force policy,” Lt. Sean Conboy of the second district told the AFRO.Conboy declined to clarify the “less-than-lethal projectiles” regulation of MPD’s “Use of Force” policy which states, “Consistent with the Department’s philosophy of using only the minimum amount of force necessary to control or subdue potentially violent subjects, less-than-lethal projectiles may be used only by authorized members with appropriate specialized training.”Conboy would not say who the “authorized members” are and whether or not all MPD members are trained to use non-deadly force.Instead, he said that the policy is clear enough, offering a regurgitation of the policy: “We have non-lethal implements that we can deploy.”Even with a “Use of Force” policy, a local ABC News station reported video footage from a cell phone that captured several MPD officers aggressively initiating arrests on a married couple, Forrest and Chadon Boggs, on the 1500 block of E Street NE on April 1.The video shows Chadon being shoved to the ground by an officer after she watched another officer straddle her husband’s back while he was on the ground.Forrest was accused of spitting on a police car and the couple was charged with assaulting an officer. Both were taken to a hospital and Chadon received four stitches.The department’s Public Information Office did not return phone calls from the AFRO regarding use of force documentation, police training, and questions on language within the “Use of Force” policy.National Association Against Police Brutality President Jonathan Newton offered an interpretation of MPD’s less-than-lethal projectile regulation based on his years as a police officer in Georgia, Ala. According to Newton, a University of the District of Columbia law student, each officer must be trained and certified to use non-lethal weapons on their belt – OC spray, ASP baton, and taser gun.“Every so often, you’re supposed to get recertified on whatever you wear on your belt,” he said. “Depending on the police department, most guys choose what to wear on their belt. If he falls out of certification for use of force on an ASP baton or OC spray, now he’s not really allowed to use that. That creates problems because you have less choices to use. Now all he has is lethal force and some hand cuffs.”Stating that use of force policies are difficult to enforce without video recordings, Newton is a proponent of body cameras within the MPD and elsewhere.In Slager’s case, who has since been terminated from the North Charleston Police Department and charged with murder, Newton said the ex-officer did what others have done but gotten away with. “The wheels of justice are moving not because another unarmed Black man was shot and killed by another White officer,” he said. “The wheels of justice are moving because an unarmed Black man was shot and killed by another White officer and it was caught on video.”According to American Civil Liberties Union of the Nation’s Capital Policy and Advocacy Director Seema Sadanandan, the MPD may be defensive over its “Use of Force” policy. “I think that what is cause for concern is the aggressive enforcement of low level offenses in the Black community,” she said. “I think that there is certainly something broken in our local justice system. Use of force is certainly an issue.”last_img read more

Abandoned Sites Turned into Affordable Housing in DC

0 Comment

first_imgD.C. At-Large council member Anita Bonds (D) also attended the ribbon cutting ceremony in Ward 5 on June 8.The H Street Community Development Corporation (HSCDC) and the Edmondson and Gallagher Property Services (E&G Group) held its official ribbon-cutting ceremony June 8 for the Barrow Milestone Residential, an affordable housing unit. Located in Ward 5, Barrow Milestone represents a success story in reconstituting formerly abandoned or vacant sites into mixed-use and affordable housing structures.Named for former HSCDC Executive Director William ‘Bill’ Barrow III, the property costs an estimated $32 million to construct and features state-of-the-art amenities including LED energy efficient lighting.For Barrow, who joined other guests including D.C. Council members Anita Bonds (D-At-large); Kenyan McDuffie (D-Ward 5); and Todd Lee, acting executive director, D.C. Housing Finance Agency, the naming was surreal.D.C. Council member Kenyon McDuffie (D) attended a ribbon cutting ceremony of the Barrow Milestone Residential development in his ward on June 8.“A lot of people have to wait until they are no longer here to have such an honor bestowed upon them, so this is really special,” Barrow told about 150 ceremony attendees. “There is a lot of thanks to go around especially when you go around and look at the beauty of this property. It stands as a shining example of the great partnerships dedicated to a singular goal of affordable housing.”Kenneth J. Brewer, executive director of H Street Community Development Corporation (HSCDC), told the AFRO that the Barrow Milestone development offers Washingtonians an opportunity to not only live in quality, affordable housing, but to also maintain their current neighborhood diversity for generations to come. “We want to ensure that as the children in Ward 5 grow into adults, they have an option of remaining in the District instead of moving into the suburbs surrounding D.C. because they have been priced out of affordable living,” he said. “Barrow Milestone represents what can be achieved when the city makes a commitment to improve the living conditions of all residents regardless of their income.”Principles of the H Street Community Development Corporation (HSCDC) and the Edmondson and Gallagher Property Services (E&G Group) cut the ribbon June 8 on Barrow Milestone Residential, a newly created affordable housing development. (Photo by Shantella Sherman)McDuffie said the complex, located on the east side of 4th Street, between Rhode Island Avenue and Bryant Street, Northeast, should help reinvigorate the neighborhood.”I am overwhelmed at the delivery of these 116 affordable units because they are all affordable, and based on their quality, will encourage more development in the immediate area,” McDuffie said. “Better retailers are attracted to the population density of the area and with new restaurants and the Metro just blocks away, the community has all the necessary elements for growth.”Milton Norman, a College Park, Maryland resident who works as a janitor near the new development, told the AFRO that the city’s investment in bringing both new businesses and affordable housing to the Rhode Island Avenue area made him hopeful of moving back into the city. “Before now, I could only afford to live in comfort outside of the city and this area was real sketchy and unsafe for a while, but that is changing,” Norman said. “Based on what I’ve seen just from the Metro down to 4th Street is enough to make me consider moving back across the D.C.-Maryland line.”At the ceremony Bonds called Barrow Milestone a “model for affordable housing success and perseverance,” that could not have been achieved without proper financial incentives. “With dedicated finances and incentives to developers, it was possible to create these wonderful units at a lease rate to tenants of $1,100 or less without supplemental capital. Let’s do more of this,” she said.Barrow Milestone is within a five-minute walk of the Rhode Island Metro Station and in close proximity to the Washington Hospital Center, Catholic University, and downtown.last_img read more

0 Comment

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterThe Robert I. Schattner Foundation awarded The American Kidney Fund (AKF) with a $150,000 grant to help children living with kidney disease and provide financial support for low income dialysis patients in the D.C. area.“The Foundation’s Board chose AKF for this gift as a meaningful extension of Dr. Schattner’s philanthropy and to honor Dr. Schattner by helping others who are living with kidney disease,” said Robert H. Sievers, treasurer of the Robert I. Schattner Foundation in a press release. “Though AKF helps thousands of patients nationwide, we know they also help many people right here in our backyard. We are pleased to know the Foundation’s gift will be well spent on programs that really make a difference in people’s lives.”The Robert I. Schattner Foundation awarded The American Kidney Fund (AKF) with a $150,000 grant to help children living with kidney disease and support low-income dialysis patients in the District.  (Courtesy Image/Logo)The Foundation’s gift will provide funding for three AKF programs in 2019:The Safety Net Program provides grants to low-income dialysis patients to help pay for treatment-related costs that are not covered by health insurance. This includes things like transport to and from treatments, over the counter medications and other needs.The Calendar Kids Art Program is an annual nationwide art contest for children and teens living with kidney disease.The Summer Enrichment Program provides financial support to help children and teens with kidney disease attend specialty camps that offer all the fun of traditional camps and are also equipped with the facilities and staff needed to handle the unique medical needs of kidney patients.The Robert I. Schattner Foundation, based in Rockville, MD, was established by Dr. Robert I. Schattner, a local dentist, inventor, businessman and philanthropist. Schattner died in 2017 from complications of kidney failure.“We are so grateful to the Robert I. Schattner Foundation for its generous gift to help ease the financial and emotional burden of children and adults living with kidney disease,” said LaVarne A. Burton, AKF president and CEO. “The Foundation’s gift will allow us to open exciting new avenues for the Calendar Kids Art participants to illustrate their journey with kidney disease, support summer enrichment activities for young patients and provide desperately needed funds to help dialysis patients in the Capital Region who have nowhere else to turn.”Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an often-preventable condition that can go undetected until it becomes life-threatening. As the leading nonprofit working on behalf of Americans with kidney disease, AKF has planned Kidney Month activities to inform and inspire at-risk individuals, policy makers and the public about kidney disease and living kidney donation.Many of the 30 million people in the U.S. don’t even know they have the disease, so AKF is taking action to provide several engagements and tools to help DMV residents get tested and stay aware of their kidney health.The AKF is offering several free screenings throughout the month of March in honor of Kidney Month.In Washington, D.C., there will be free screenings at the AmeriHealth Caritas Nutrition Wellness Day (March 16), Children’s National Medical Center Health Fair (March 19) and Hoop for All Foundation Flag Football Tournament (March 23). In addition to the D.C. kidney health screening events, AKF will host a Kidney Month presentation at the Washington Senior Wellness Center (March 19). Through Know Your Kidneys™, AKF helps people understand their risk for CKD and the importance of early detection to slow down or prevent its progression to kidney failure.There are also screenings in Richmond,VA (March 22-24) and the B’More Healthy Expo in Baltimore (March 16).For more information about AKF Kidney month activities go to KidneyFund.org/kidneymonth.

Netflix CFO David Wells Is Leaving the Company

0 Comment

first_imgDavid Wells, a 14-year veteran of Netflix who has guided the company through a period of massive growth since 2010 as chief financial officer, announced plans to leave the company.Netflix said Wells will step down after helping the company choose his successor and announced that its search for a new CFO will include “both internal and external candidates.” Wells said in a statement that after exiting Netflix, he intends to focus more on philanthropy “but I’m not sure yet what that looks like.”“After discussing my desire to make a change with Reed [Hastings, Netflix’s chairman and CEO], we agreed that with Netflix’s strong financial position and exciting growth plans, this is the right time for us to help identify the next financial leader for the company,” Wells said.Hastings, in a statement, said, “David has been a valuable partner to Netflix and to me. He skillfully managed our finances during a phase of dramatic growth that has allowed us to create and bring amazing entertainment to our members all over the world while also delivering outstanding returns to our investors.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

He also was a key leader in Netflix’s aggressive international expansion of the streaming service to more than 190 countries.It’s possible that Wells is simply looking for a change and that he’s “burned out,” said Raj Das, global head of digital practice at executive recruiter Buffkin/Baker. Or, Das speculated, “maybe the board said, ‘Let’s bring a fresh face into the mix to take the company to the next level.’” Buffkin/Baker is not currently working with Netflix on any executive-placement assignments, according to Das.Wells was named Netflix’s chief financial officer in 2010, when then-CFO Barry McCarthy departed. Prior to that, Wells served in a variety of roles, most recently as VP of financial planning and analysis. From July 2015 to July 2017, he lived and worked in the Netherlands as part of building up Netflix’s European operations.Before joining Netflix in 2004, Wells worked for Deloitte Consulting in multiple roles from August 1998 to March 2004 and in the non-profit world before getting his MBA. Wells holds an MBA and a master’s degree in public policy from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in commerce from the University of Virginia.Wells is on the board of the Trade Desk, a programmatic-advertising platform company, which he joined in January 2016, and serves as audit committee chair and on the compensation committee.last_img read more
