Instead, they will be putting the money into a retirement fund.“We don’t have any plans to buy anything crazy or go on any big trips,” Tina explained. “The most fun is going to be depositing that check!” Harold added.Inspire Your Friends With This Lucky Story By Sharing It To Social Media – Photo by Louisiana LotteryAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Mediterranean Home Mixes Old World With New School

first_imgScottsdale Living Magazine Winter 2012 Old world meets new school: Mediterranean home captures fun and energy of New York City and ChicagoA sprawling new home in North Scottsdale perfectly blends Old World Mediterranean with regionally-inspired modern design.From the exterior, the custom home’s entrance is reminiscent of a courtyard from more than a century ago, which leads into a custom carved entry door. Taking more than two years to build by Dan Couturier of Madison Couturier Custom Homes, the Italian-inspired home is surrounded by Arizona’s untouched desert landscape with mountains and golf courses as backdrop views. Complementing its natural surroundings, the exterior features elements that give a rustic look, like paint that gives a weathered appearance, uneven cobblestones and textured roof tiles.Designed by architect Jim Hann of James Hann Design AIA, the Mediterranean inspiration was carried through much of the home’s common areas, guest rooms and master wing. Tasked with creating rooms that conveyed the character of the exterior, interior design firm Est Est’s Tony Sutton and Kim Schapiro took inspiration from centuries-old structures with Old World colors and dramatic textures throughout the gathering areas to create a sense of tradition at every turn. No detail was overlooked, from the awe-inspiring Venetian plaster and elegant fireplaces to stonewalls and spiral staircases, all set against a neutral palette. Taking authenticity to the highest level, Est Est used reclaimed two-tier wood beams, placing them in an unexpected place — the ceiling — to evoke surprise in the kitchen and living room.“This Tuscan villa is a true reflection of what you would see in Italy,” says Sutton, lead designer and president of Est Est. “Although the home is brand new, the couple wanted it to feel as if it was hundreds of years old and passed down from generation to generation. At the same time, they wanted tucked away rooms that surprised guests with modern and unexpected colors that reflected their age and love for entertaining.”In a few rooms, the interior design makes a dramatic shift from the Old World style. The young couple wanted fun gathering and entertaining areas that paid tribute to two different styles. As a nod to the husband’s roots in the Midwest, Est Est’s designers created a Irish-style pub room that could easily be found in an old Chicago neighborhood.Surrounded by hardwood floors and an oversized dark wood bar, this traditional take on a “man cave” features a decades-old shoe shine chair and vintage-style clock as focal points of the room.In another area of the home at the bottom of a classic spiral staircase in the basement, Est Est designers created a fun and modern setting with a New York City vibe by using plush red and purple tones that contrasted against leopard print carpet. Geometric columns covered in metallic tiles create a sense of rhythm. An energetic take on a room almost exclusively used for parties, designers wanted to capture the ambiance of big city nightclubs throughout.View photos of this Mediterranean custom home:last_img read more

Study examines concussion-like symptom reporting in uninjured athletes

first_imgPinterest Uninjured athletes reported concussion-like symptoms in a new study that suggests symptom reporting in the absence of recent concussion is related to male or female sex and preexisting conditions, which can include prior treatment for a psychiatric condition or substance abuse, according to an article published online by JAMA Pediatrics.Every state in the U.S. has passed legislation pertaining to sport-related concussion. In general, the laws mandate that injured student athletes be evaluated by a qualified health care professional before they can return to participating in sports. Decisions about returning to activity are based on symptom reporting.Grant L. Iverson, Ph.D., of Harvard Medical School, Boston, and coauthors sought to clarify factors associated with concussion-like symptoms in uninjured adolescents using data from more than 30,000 student athletes. It is important for clinicians to understand factors that may be associated with baseline symptom reporting so they can properly make decisions about when athletes may return to activity. Share on Facebook Share LinkedIncenter_img Share on Twitter Email The authors found symptom reporting was more common in girls than boys and that in the absence of a recent concussion, 19 percent of boys and 28 percent of girls reported a group of symptoms similar to postconcussional syndrome.Preexisting psychiatric, developmental (e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder [ADHD] and learning disability) and neurological factors (e.g., migraines) were associated with higher rates of reporting symptoms that resemble postconcussional syndrome at baseline.Prior treatment of a prior psychiatric condition was the strongest indicator for symptom reporting in boys, followed by a history of migraines. For girls, the indicators were prior treatment of a psychiatric condition or substance abuse and ADHD.While prior concussions were modestly associated with increased risk for reporting clusters of symptoms, they were less so than preexisting developmental and psychiatric factors.“When managing a student athlete with a concussion, it has been widely noted that the athlete should be ‘asymptomatic’ at rest and with exercise before returning to sports, and sometimes athletes are kept out of school for prolonged periods while they wait for symptoms to resolve, which could have negative consequences for their academic, social and emotional functioning and contribute to symptom reporting. These results reinforce that ‘asymptomatic’ status after concussion can be difficult to define,” the study concludes.last_img read more

NEWS SCAN: Botulism cases, Tdap vaccine for seniors, BC mumps outbreak, animal welfare & eggs

first_imgJul 8, 2011Improperly stored soup leads to 2 botulism casesAs a reminder of the dangers of botulism, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) detailed in today’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) two cases of botulism poisoning this year resulting from eating improperly stored potato soup. On Jan 28 a 29-year-old Ohio man was hospitalized after 5 days of progressive dizziness, blurred vision, and difficulty swallowing and breathing. He had bought refrigerated soup but had stored it unrefrigerated for 42 days before tasting some from the then-bulging container on Jan 18, noting a bad taste, and discarding the remainder. He required 57 days’ hospitalization before being transferred with residual weakness to a rehabilitation facility. On Apr 8 a 41-year-old Georgia woman was hospitalized after 4 days of progressive dizziness and difficulty swallowing. In the hospital she developed respiratory distress, required mechanical ventilation, and was treated with botulism antitoxin. Five days before hospitalization she too had tasted soup that she bought refrigerated but left unrefrigerated for 18 days. The report concludes, “If a low-acid food such as potato soup is stored unrefrigerated in an anaerobic environment (eg, a sealed container), without a barrier to bacterial growth, spores can germinate, resulting in bacterial growth and botulinum toxin production. Because heating food to a temperature of 185°F (85°C) for 5 minutes inactivates the toxin, proper preparation also is an important safeguard.”Jul 8 MMWR reportFDA approves Tdap vaccine for those over 65The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today approved GlaxoSmithKline’s tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine, Boostrix, in people 65 and older, the agency said in a press release. “Currently,” the FDA said, “there are vaccines approved for the prevention of tetanus and diphtheria that can be used in adults 65 and older. Boostrix, which is given as a single-dose booster shot, is the first vaccine approved to prevent all three diseases in older people.” Boostrix was approved for adults 19 to 64 in 2008. The safety and effectiveness of Boostrix was based on a study of about 1,300 people ages 65 and older. Boostrix was originally approved in 2005 for use in children and adolescents 10 to 18 years old.Jul 8 FDA press releaseMumps outbreak spreads from Whistler ski areaHealth officials from the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority (VCHA) reported yesterday that they are investigating a mumps outbreak that started in the Whistler ski resort area and has since spread to other cities, including Vancouver. In a report posted on ProMed-mail, the Internet-based reporting system of the International Society for Infectious Diseases, they said 90 mumps cases, mainly in young adults, have been reported since February. Transmission among the initial cases appeared to spread through the sharing of marijuana joints, cigarettes, drinks, and utensils. Many of the cases in Whistler are employees of the ski report or surrounding establishments. Though several of the more recent cases don’t have links to Whistler, some are clustered along the same household or social network. The authors said Whistler has a seasonal workforce and includes people from many different countries. They added that most of the infected patients had not received two doses of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Young people born between 1970 and 1995 in the area may be vulnerable to the disease, because a second dose at age 18 months was not recommended until 1996. The health department has launched an extensive vaccine campaign that also targeted a large ski and music event in Whistler. Communication and immunization activities will also target area colleges in the fall.Jul 7 ProMed postHumane Society, egg industry reach animal welfare agreementThe Humane Society of the United States and United Egg Producers today unveiled an agreement to push for federal mandates on animal welfare standards for egg farms, Food Safety News reported. The two groups have frequently clashed over animal welfare issues. The proposed new standards, which would be the first addressing the treatment of animals on farms, would phase out battery cages in favor of housing systems that include nesting boxes and scratching areas. Eggs that don’t meet the new standards wouldn’t be cleared for sale in the United States. The egg industry has pledged $4 million toward overhauling industry practices over the next 15 years, according to the Food Safety News report. The pork industry criticized the agreement, because it reduces producers’ ability to decide what’s best for the animals and respond to market demands. Scientific studies comparing the safety of conventionally produced eggs versus those produced with cage-free methods have been limited and have yielded contradictory findings.Jul 8 Food Safety News storylast_img read more

Luján: Year In Service To New Mexico’s CD3

first_imgU.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján From the Office of U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján:WASHINGTON, D.C. –  U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M), the U.S. House Assistance Speaker, secured $5.7 million in federal benefits for constituents in 2019 and assisted more than 1,000 individuals living in New Mexico’s Third Congressional District through the office’s casework services. This year, Congressman Luján introduced 27 bills and co-sponsored 375 bills to improve the lives of New Mexicans. Thirteen bills, amendments, or measures written by Luján were passed or included in legislation that passed the U.S. House of Representatives. This includes legislation to revitalize Native languages, protect federal lands near Chaco Canyon from oil and gas drilling, help combat the opioid crisis, improve broadband access, and expand health care to rural communities. As Luján worked to serve the communities in New Mexico’s Third Congressional District, he also announced that more than $11.9 million in federal grants were designated for the district, sent 117,202 letters to New Mexicans who contacted the office seeking information on policies and legislative priorities, and traveled 12,620 miles throughout the district to meet with constituents. In D.C., the Luján team helped give individuals from New Mexico’s Third Congressional District an inside view of Congress with more than 180 Capitol tours and by fulfilling 18 requests to have American flags flown over the Capitol, including one flag that went to Pojoaque Middle School to replace a damaged flag.“Families across New Mexico deserve progress on the critical issues affecting our communities – and that’s exactly what was accomplished this year. I was proud to work alongside my constituents to lower health care costs, protect our public lands and sacred sites, and invest in workers,” Luján said. “As we look to the new year, I will continue working on behalf of New Mexicans and fighting for policies that uplift working families.”In addition, the House of Representatives passed more than 400 pieces of legislation this year – including more than 245 bipartisan bills – that would lower health care costs, invest in workers, and invest in our nation’s infrastructure.last_img read more
