‘Make sure our children don’t learn about road safety the hard way’

first_imgParents and motorists are being asked to ensure that our most vulnerable road users don’t learn lessons the hard way as thousands of children and young people get ready to return to school this week.Donegal County Council’s Road Safety Officer Brian O’Donnell is calling on all parents and motorists to lead by example this new term.“This is a time of great preparation for families as everyone gets set for the new school year and as children are our most vulnerable road-users, it is up to all of us to ensure we play our part in keeping them safe on our roads,” says Brian O’Donnell. “We should all demonstrate good road safety behaviour at all times as children will learn from our example. When travelling to school by car or bus, make sure they know how important it is to put their seatbelt on at all times. Stress the importance of always putting on a seatbelt any time they get into a car, no matter how short the journey and always demonstrate good, safe responsible road behaviour.”Brian advises “if your child walks or cycles to school, take them on the route in advance and make sure they know where they are going and how to use the roads and footpaths safely.“We are all fully aware that dangerous parking around schools is a serious problem, so we are appealing to motorists to assist schools by driving with proper care and attention and parking well away from no parking areas around schools. Motorists should adhere to the speed limits at schools during school hours and take responsibility for their own actions”.The following ‘back to school’ advice is for parents and children: For motorists:Reduce distractions in your car so you can concentrate on the road and pedestrians.Remember to be especially careful in around schools and other areas where children are being picked up and dropped off.Slow down when passing a stationary school bus when it is dropping off or picking up children and always adhere to the speed limits.Be a good role model. Set a good example by always wearing your seatbelt, also ensuring that all passengers are wearing their seatbelt and always putting your phone away when driving.For children:Not only are children at risk in vehicles or on bicycles, they are highly vulnerable as pedestrians.Teach children at an early age to look left, right and left again before crossing the road. Then remind them to continue looking until safely across.Teach children to put phones, headphones and devices down when crossing the road. It is particularly important to reinforce this message with teenagers.It’s always best to walk on footpaths and cross at a safe location, using pedestrian crossings when available.Children under 10 need to cross the road with an adult. Every child is different, but most children are unable to judge the speed and distance of oncoming cars until they are at least aged 10.For further information on road safety for parents, teachers and students, visit www.rsa.ie‘Make sure our children don’t learn about road safety the hard way’ was last modified: August 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Back to schoolroad safetylast_img read more

SA doctors develop affordable heart valves

first_img7 May 2015Cardiac surgery techniques and technology were driven, in the 1960s in Europe and America, by the high death toll from rheumatic heart disease (RHD). In the 1970s the global burden of disease changed and RHD all but disappeared in the global north – but it continues to kill hundreds of thousands in the developing world. A locally developed heart valve is set to change that.Rheumatic heart disease is caused by a preceding group A streptococcal (strep) infection – or strep throat. If left untreated, the antibodies that attack the bacteria in the throat also attack the valves of the heart, and this in many cases proves fatal to the patient.While is not completely understood why rheumatic heart disease is so common in the under-resourced parts of the globe, access to antibiotics is thought to be an important factor.One of the few ways to treat RHD is surgery – replacing the heart valves, says Professor Peter Zilla, head of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Groote Schuur Hospital and Red Cross Children’s Hospital.Zilla is also the medical director and chief executive of Strait Access Technologies, a start-up with support from the University of Cape Town that aims to develop, manufacture and market cardiac-related medical devices that address the need of the millions of RHD patients worldwide.“Today, in the countries where there is relatively easy access to cardiac surgery, such as the US, Europe and Japan, there is a negligible rate of RHD,” Zilla says. “But in the remaining majority of the population, who live in Africa, India and poorer regions of Asia, an estimated 70- to 75-million patients live with rheumatic heart disease. Of those, about 24% will need heart-valve surgery, and of those who need it, about 70% are likely to be dead by the age of 27 if they do not have surgery.”Strait Technologies says on its website that 1.4-million deaths per year are caused by Rheumatic Heart Disease. And the majority of these are preventable through valve replacement or repair.Estimates put the rate of RHD in Mozambique at 30 cases per 1 000; at 33 cases per 1 000 in Tonga; and up to 51 cases per 1 000 in India.With the current focus in the global north on lifestyle diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes, Zilla says it became apparent that the solutions for rheumatic heart disease needed to be developed locally.Affordable and accessibleSpeaking at an event in Cape Town in April, Zilla says his company, Strait Access Technologies, has developed plastic heart valve technology that will be both affordable and accessible in the developing world.The plastic heart valves can be inserted by the use of non-invasive surgery, at a significantly lower cost than those produced in the global north.“Since access to cardiac surgery is limited in these countries, it is crucial that our treatments for heart-valve diseases are not reliant on the specialised infrastructure needed to perform open-heart surgery, and the valve eliminates the need for continuous anti-coagulation medication,” Zilla said.These plastic heart valves, expected to be ready for clinical use in the next two or three years, are already attracting significant international attention from China and other countries.Zilla said that while high-tech first-world surgery may cater for only the few, Africa was developing novel and simple procedures that could hold the key to closing the gap in treatment between the rich countries of the global north and the under-resourced countries of the developing world.SAinfo and UCT.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, April 3, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We should see sunshine across the state again today, our last day of pleasant weather before shifting into a wet period for tomorrow. Clouds will be on the increase this evening after sunset. Scattered showers move in tomorrow, and continue through a good part of Friday. Rain totals are still expected to be minor at up to a half an inch with coverage at 90% of the state. However, some models are trying to ramp up those rain totals a bit. We are standing pat this morning. Clouds will try to give way to from west to east as we move into the later part of the day on Friday. The weekend starts nice on Saturday with plenty of sun and mild temps. However, on Sunday clouds will increase ahead of our next system. That system is coming a little faster but still has some good moisture with it this morning. That being said, we are going to shave a little off the top end of the event in our forecast right now. Showers can start to fall after midnight Sunday night in far NW Ohio, but will generally wait over a majority of the state until Monday morning. Rains then continue through Monday night, ending by sunrise Tuesday morning. Rain totals are expected in the .5”-1” range and we are keeping coverage at near 90%. We do thin that thunderstorms are no longer a significant concern, although we wont rule out a couple here and there. With out the thunderstorms, the highest end of the previous rain range just is not likely. The map at right shows precipitation totals from now through Tuesday morning. Tuesday features a mix of clouds and sun, and while we can’t rule out a shower or two, we don’t expect a lot of moisture in this time frame. However, it is becoming clear that we can’t quite get through the day with no moisture. These widely scattered showers will end up with coverage at 30% or less. Partly sunny skies are expected for Wednesday. However, rain then moves into southern Indiana Wednesday night through Thursday morning, bringing up to .3” with 80% coverage. We likely miss out up north. The rest of Thursday we turn out partly sunny and see mostly sunny skies on Friday. The extended period stars off drier, as we are moving our bigger rain chances back a couple of days. However, there is significant disagreement among many models on how the pattern unfolds with regard to timing and intensity of precipitation going all the way back to the midweek system for next week. Right now, are going to keep the 13th and 14th mostly dry, but then look for several waves of moisture coming through for the 15th through the 18th. Those waves still can bring big rains, with 1-3” possible combined. However, again, the timing of the moisture and fronts is not set in stone by any means, and we could be seeing some changes in this forecast from next Wednesday forward over the next few days. The overall total moisture for the period is similar…but when and how does it come through?last_img read more
