Last Day to Help JHR Give Youth A Voice!

In Writing (all kinds) on January 15, 2018 at 5:41 PM
Last Day to Help JHR Give Youth A Voice!
  
 
 Leslie Spence
Dear Donna Kakonge,
Today is the last day of JHR’s groundbreaking Give Youth A Voice campaign – six weeks of raising awareness and taking action to help youth world wide.
To date, we have raised $20,077.76, surpassing our goal of $15,000!
We thank all of you who have acted to make this Holiday campaign a success through your enormous generosity and support. And there is still time to make JHR your charity of choice in 2018. Help us help youth find their voice and vocation – world wide. Support the campaign with a last-minute gift, or become a monthly donor through 2018 here.
If you have not yet read all the stories of how your support can help change young people’s lives, click the links below!
We started by sharing the story of Leslie Spence who set up a youth radio station in Webequie First Nation and Emilee Gilpin who found a job after her JHR internship.
We shared how young Syrian journalists are working with JHR to get news out to the Syrian people, as reported by CTV News,
We recognized Jordanian journalist Nour Ezz Addin for her powerful and courageous reporting on torture.
And we both supported and celebrated young media entrepreneurs in South Africa, for their work coming up with bright new ideas to reach out to young people across South Africa.
These brave young journalists strengthen our work and the casue of strong media world wide.
Follow us on social media @jhrnews for further news on how we continue to Give Youth A Voice!
Thank you again for your support. Without you, none of this would be possible.
Sincerely,
Rachel Pulfer
Executive Director, Journalists for Human Rights

MANISH’S ZODIAC PREDICTIONS ( 15th JAN – 21st JAN )

In Writing (all kinds) on January 15, 2018 at 3:00 AM

Aries ( 21 March–19 April ) – There is a strong focus on your life direction and career this week. You could be mulling over some major decisions about where you’re headed. Collaborating with others helps build your faith and optimism. You’re in a better position to see the benefits of partnering going forward, or there could be more helpful, happy, or pleasing people coming into your life. You do find yourself more willing to take on responsibilities with your loved ones. You’ll do what needs to be done in your relationships, but they aren’t a huge priority for you right now. Favorable Dates: Jan 16 Favorable Colors: Red & Blue

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – This is a good time for you to assess your life, take stock of what you’ve done, and focus on what you should be focused on. You can see the work you’ve put in and decisions you’ve made come to the point where you’re rewarded for being smart and responsible or punished for not. You can be much more emotional, and you can be more outward with your emotions. You want a closer connection to the people you’re closest to and want to get to their inner core as well. Intimacy becomes more important for you. Favorable Dates: Jan 21 Favorable Colors: Red & Blue

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June ) – The week is a strong one for making important adjustments, getting your daily routines and self-care problems into order, and doing editing or revision in your work. Attempting to push ahead new initiatives is not advised for now. There can be an increase in your personal influence in groups, with friends, and with a partner. You might especially enjoy coming to someone’s aid. This can be a time for rediscovering old passions. You’ll have plenty of time for sorting out your desires, needs, and goals for this week. Favorable Dates: Jan 20 Favorable Colors: Red & Purple

Cancer  ( 21 June – 22 July ) – This is an excellent time for researching, editing, or otherwise going over a business, health, and financial matters. You are likely to feel especially motivated to do things that you’ve been letting slide. Brand-new endeavours may not get off the ground, but work in progress can benefit greatly from your attention now. You can also focus on a spiritual venture, and improve your connection to your intuition.  In general, you feel more optimistic about life, and you try to focus on the good, even when you’re upset. Favorable Dates: Jan 17 Favorable Colors: Red & Blue

Leo  ( 23 July – 22 August ) – You would be drawn to your inner world this week, and to making inner changes that have a strong impact on your life. You are tuned in to the deeper issues and looking beyond the surface of matters for answers. Subconscious issues can become more obvious to you, and working on them is a good thing. That can be a great time for therapy or for focusing on your spiritual self. Your intuition can be incredibly good, so listen to what your gut is trying to say to you. Favorable Dates: Jan 20 Favorable Colors: Yellow & Blue

Virgo ( 23 August – 22 September ) – This period involves coming to a greater understanding of how the way you manage your resources impacts your confidence. Money and security matters require some revising and reorganizing. You want close and strong emotional bonds with the people in your life right now, and you won’t settle for anything less than that. For singles, intimate relationships or increased need for privacy or exclusiveness can be impacting friendships and goals, and this is the time for cutting back, simplifying, and coming to a better position. Favorable Dates: Jan 18 Favorable Colors: Yellow & Blue

Libra  ( 23 September – 22 October ) –Your ambitions are building, and attention to practical matters pays off. It’s a good time to think in big terms and seize career opportunities as they arise. You are exploring different ways of building your sense of value and worthiness. Money issues or sources of income may change and there can be some reshuffling to do. Ultimately, you could be finding ways to increase your income or your earning potential. Opportunities for cooperation, loving and personal gestures, and shared happiness emerge in this week. Favorable Dates: Jan 15 Favorable Colors: Red & White

Scorpio ( 23 October – 21 November ) – You could be re-assessing the ways in which you approach relationships, as well as what it is you want from your connections. Looking to the past in order to improve the present and your future is what this is about.  You are especially open to new insights, and you might lend a sensitive ear to other people’s problems. You could feel especially reinforced and uplifted when you discover someone who truly understands your perspective. A sense of inner joy and peace can be with you, which effectively boosts your personal magnetism. Favorable Dates: Jan 19 Favorable Colors: Red & Yellow

Sagittarius ( 22 November – 21 December ) – This week brings stronger attention to money matters, personal possessions, and issues of comfort and security. You’re likely to feel in a stronger position in terms of outlook and knowledge. Events occurring now tend to point you in the direction of a more simplified, streamlined, and improved way of life. This is a good time for exploring new adventures or perspectives with a partner and people you care about. Romantic possibilities may come from a person who is of a very different background than you. Favorable Dates: Jan 17 Favorable Colors: Red & White

Capricorn ( 22 December – 19 January ) – This period ushers in good energy for recommitting to plans and projects, as well as for new resolutions to explore, grow, and expand beyond the regular experiences of your life. You would improve your lifestyle dramatically to make you a much healthier, happier person, and you can streamline your daily life and routine so that you’re more productive, efficient, and accomplish more. During the weekend, the need for some privacy and downtime is natural as you prepare for more outgoing and visible times. Favorable Dates: Jan 20 Favorable Colors: Red & White

Aquarius ( 20 January – 18 February ) – You feel you have good energy on your side pushing you to your best. You’re finally coming out of the shadows and into the light, and you’re ready to take the plans you’ve been working on for some time and make them a reality. You can have more mental stimulation, come up with more ideas, and find it hard to keep anything to yourself  The week pulls your attention to happiness goals, friendships, and networking and bringing more joy and pleasure in reaching out and making connections. You can be more spiritual, intuitive, and tuned in to the subtle energies around you.Favorable Dates: Jan 15 Favorable Colors: Red & Grey

Pisces ( 19 February – 20 March ) – You might enjoy recognition for past work, and you can quite effectively work on or revive old projects that are likely to have long-term appeal and profitability. You can renew your connection to your values, improve your sense of security, and be more in touch with your senses. You can be more invested in your beliefs, and defend them against anyone who you feel threatens them. If single, you can meet someone new who you’re really interested in and connect with, and if in a relationship, you can make it fun again and inject new life into it. Favorable Dates: Jan 21 Favorable Colors: Blue & White

[TPS] – Public invited to provide input on TPS organizational culture

In Writing (all kinds) on January 12, 2018 at 5:52 PM
Toronto Police Service
News Release

Public invited to provide input on TPS organizational culture

Friday, January 12, 2018 – 4:31 PM
Strategy Management
416-808-7018

The Toronto Police Service is modernizing its policing model. Part of that effort includes assessing the Service’s organizational culture – the values, beliefs, and behaviours that shape how Toronto Police Service members do their work and interact with the community.

“As we modernize, we are talking to our members about what they think we, as a Service, do well and where we can improve. It’s also important for us to continue the conversation with the community that helped inform the creation of our Action Plan: The Way Forward. We are inviting the public to share their views either by attending roundtable discussions or filling out an online survey so we can get their input during this assessment process,” explained Deputy Chief Barbara McLean.

The Service has hired MNP, a Canadian professional services firm, to complete the organizational culture assessment. An important part of the assessment is offering the opportunity for community members across the city to provide their input, either in person or by a survey.

The public will be able to provide input via an online survey available at the following link: Organizational Culture Survey or participate in a facilitated roundtable that will be held in various locations across Toronto.

About the roundtables:

Roundtable sessions will be held in the evenings at the following locations:

Session #1: Rexdale Community Hub, 21 Panorama Court, TorontoJanuary 23, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #2:High Park/Parkdale, location to be confirmed, January 25, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #3, Agincourt Community Services Association, 201 Chester Le Blvd., January 30, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #4: North York Civic Centre, 5100 Yonge St., February 1, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #5: Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Dr., February 6, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #6: Regent Park Community Centre, 402 Shuter St., February 8, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #7: York Civic Centre, 2700 Eglinton Ave. W., February 13, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Session #8: Flemingdon Park/East York, location to be confirmed, February 15, 2018, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Due to a limit on the capacity for each session, please register ahead of time for an upcoming roundtable discussion by following this link: Roundtable Registration. Venues and times will be kept up to date on the registration page as locations are confirmed.

About the Action Plan: The Way Forward
Mandated to look beyond the way policing is currently done in Toronto, the Transformational Task Force (TTF) proposed a modernized policing model for the city that is innovative, sustainable, and affordable. The model will place communities at its core, be intelligence-led, optimize the use of resources and technology, and embrace partnerships as a means of enhancing capacity and capability. The final report contains 32 recommendations and was accepted by the Toronto Police Services Board in February 2017 as the Service’s Business Plan for the next three years.

CAMH entrusted with $100 million donation

In Writing (all kinds) on January 11, 2018 at 6:11 PM

Your dedication to mental health has sparked unprecedented hope!

Dear Donna,

When I joined the CAMH Foundation nine years ago as President and CEO, I always hoped to celebrate a day like today with you — you helped make it a reality.

Today is a turning point.

Today we announced that CAMH has been entrusted with Canada’s very first $100 million donation dedicated to finding the causes and cures of mental illness.

It’s an anonymous gift, given in the spirit of public service and intended to fuel the discovery that will save lives and create social change for all Canadians.

This donation will enable CAMH to attract talent, explore big ideas, support young scientists and leverage data to unlock the mysteries of the brain.

By partnering with CAMH, you are helping people living with mental illness know that there is hope, and change is coming.

Watch this inspirational video of young CAMH researchers and scientists as they talk about their hope for the future of mental illness.

This day would not be possible without the ongoing support of people like you. Every donation has helped build CAMH into Canada’s largest mental health academic health science centre, attracting world-class talent, research facilities and once-in-a-lifetime investments like this one.

I’ve never felt more hopeful than I do at this moment. Thank you for your generosity and commitment.

This is only the beginning.

Darrell Louise Gregersen

FAHP, ICD.D
President & CEO, CAMH Foundation

P.S. There’s reason to hope — watch this powerful video about the discoveries that are waiting to be uncovered. You can also watch the announcement recorded live on our Facebook page.

P.P.S. The news of this annoucement is spreading — here are a few reactions from CAMH supporters from across Canada:

Tears in my eyes.. As a parent who deals with teens with mental health issues, @CAMH ‘s anonymous donor will help SO MANY FAMILIES. #SickNotWeak #EndTheStigma #THANKYOU — Anonymous (@mom2kyandkay), January 11, 2018 This.

La peinture CIL® offre des conseils faciles et économiques

pour embellir les espaces de vie en plein air

CIL Outdoor Living Photo -- 2

CIL Outdoor Living Photo 2: Illuminez les meubles extérieurs usés avec des couleurs vives, comme le Noble Blue de CIL (50BB18 / 216) présenté sur les chaises Muskoka et Tarragon Leaf (70GY 49/201) sur le repose-pieds.

 CIL Outdoor Living Photo -- 1

Utilisez des alternatives de coloration. Si vous avez un pont en bois surélevé, où l’air est facilement ventilé, envisagez de lui donner un aspect terre cuite en choisissant une combinaison de teintes de peinture terreuses. “Rag” les peintures pour mélanger les couleurs ensemble, puis éclabousser au hasard la peinture noire sur la zone pour créer l’aspect des galets. Peindre un sol extérieur avec une couleur pâle – comme le ciel bleu ciel de la CIL, Billowing Clouds (10BB 65/094), le vert pâle Farm Life (90YY 72/225) ou le corail léger Bali Sand (90YR 72/159) – crée également une vie chaude région.

Improviser avec des meubles. Pourquoi investir dans des meubles de patio coûteux quand vous pouvez utiliser de la peinture d’extérieur durable – comme la peinture extérieure semi-brillante CIL Dimensions – pour donner un aspect neuf aux anciennes pièces? Avoir une table d’intérieur, vous pouvez faire sans? Transformez-le en une belle table de patio. Vous cherchez à faire un meilleur usage des vieilles chaises de cuisine dépareillées? Poncez et repeignez-les pour un usage extérieur.

Soyez économe. Vous seriez surpris par les trésors que vous pouvez trouver dans les magasins d’aubaines qui font des pièces idéales pour votre espace extérieur. Si vous cherchez un bar extérieur, achetez un meuble usé et peignez-le d’une couleur distincte. Rangez-le avec une barre en plastique et vous êtes prêt à vous amuser. Peignez de vieilles chaises Muskoka en bois avec des tons clairs et brillants ou des nuances pastel pour donner vie à votre espace.

“Le ciel est la limite quand il s’agit de décoration extérieure”, souligne Goldman, suggérant d’utiliser l’art extérieur, des miroirs et des accessoires colorés tels que des bougeoirs, des coussins résistants aux intempéries et des jardinières comme finition.

Pour plus d’idées de décoration extérieure, visitez le http://www.cil.ca ou le blogue de CIL à talk.cil.ca.

Date: Thursday, January 18th
Time & Location: TBD

#BlackOnCampusUofT Town Hall Pt. II
How do we successfully tackle anti-black racism on campus? 

Back by popular demand! Thank you to everyone for their support and attendance at our first Town Hall denouncing anti-black racism on this campus. As we look into the future, we want to turn this situation in the Engineering department as a push into finding effective ways to propel an anti-black racism campaign on campus.

Together as a community let’s brainstorm ways we can effectively resolve acts of anti-black racism, and help uplift each other as a community.

Date, Time, & Location: TBD

Black and Educated? Unveiling The Contradictions and Redesigning The Future 
Delivered by Chizoba Imoka and moderated by Dr. Kofi Hope as apart of Hart Houses Hancock Lecture

In an education system based on Western values and knowledge, Black students go through school feeling alienated and graduate ill-equipped to bring about transformative changes in their communities. Is it not time to restructure the system?

Chizoba Imoka disrupts the perceived Black and “Educated” contradiction and advances an alternative vision of education that acknowledges colonial history, is responsive to socio-political concerns and enables a new generation of social justice leaders to make real change.

Following her presentation, Chizoba will be joined by a Rhodes Scholar, Doctor of Philosophy in Politics, community activist and youth advocate, Kofi Hope for an onstage discussion.

Where: Great Hall, Hart House
When: Tues., Jan. 23, 2018, 7-9 pm

Cost: Free for students / Register now

Des moyens naturels pour arrêter la transpiration excessive
Tout le monde sue dans les aisselles parce que nos corps ont juste été faits pour fonctionner de cette façon. Cependant, la transpiration peut aussi s’accompagner d’une horrible odeur qui peut causer beaucoup de problèmes. Non seulement l’odeur crée des problèmes, mais les taches sur vos vêtements ne sont probablement pas vos trucs préférés dans le monde non plus. Voici ce que vous devez savoir pour arrêter naturellement ou diminuer la transpiration excessive.

Déodorant
Tous les déodorants ne sont pas pleins de produits chimiques. Certaines marques sont assez naturelles, et par conséquent, vous devriez vous sentir à l’aise de l’appliquer. Certaines grandes marques incluent Natural Tom & Burt’s Bees. Vous pouvez également utiliser du savon naturel pour minimiser les sténoses – assurez-vous d’utiliser au moins deux fois par jour.

Poudre de talc
Beaucoup de gens ont réussi à endiguer la transpiration des aisselles en utilisant de la poudre de talc. Ce n’est vraiment bénéfique que si vous avez une légère transpiration des aisselles. La poudre de talc absorbera la transpiration et réduira les odeurs. Vous devez cependant utiliser de très grandes quantités de poudre de talc.

Aliments – Allez beaucoup plus léger sur les protéines et les graisses. Les fibres et les fruits aideront à la transpiration excessive. Une fois que vous avez l’habitude de manger ces deux pour une longue période de temps, il peut très bien résoudre les problèmes de transpiration excessive! Poids – Perdre du poids aidera à éliminer la transpiration excessive. C’est parce que devoir bouger plus de poids prend plus d’énergie et vous fait transpirer. Ce sont des mathématiques simples, en fait.

MANISH’S ZODIAC PREDICTIONS ( 8th Jan – 14th Jan )

In Writing (all kinds) on January 8, 2018 at 3:00 AM

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April ) – There is an inherent impatience with getting what you want this week. You would live in the moment and have a hard time waiting for things to happen. Whims of the moment take absolute precedence in your lives. You may decide to study or increase the dimension of your knowledge as you move from one level of wisdom to the next. Some of you may step back from a path, withdrawing to contemplate your situation or choosing a new area or discipline of knowledge to expand the inner horizon. Favorable Dates: Jan 10 Favorable Colors: Grey & Purple

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – You can see more opportunities to expand your life in new ways, and do things you weren’t sure you could do. You would be into the spotlight and want the whole world to see what you’ve been up to and give you credit or praise for it. Opportunity through study, friends, and gatherings of like-minded people can set you on a new path with speed. You would have the power to you and your beloved to renew your fires by affirming your shared course for what you really want. This is a stellar time for making a transition in love. Favorable Dates: Jan 9 Favorable Colors: Yellow & Blue

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June ) – Life takes a turn for the better this week, in almost every aspect of your life. You will have an earnest desire to be recognized as a strong figure of unquestioned achievement and authority. You will want to be known as the dominant force, the leader and the ‘expert’. You can be a bit of a perfectionist and demand the best of yourself, so you do need to not be so hard on yourself. You may come across as more practical, hard-working, and anxious. Favorable Dates: Jan 8  Favorable Colors: Blue & Yellow

Cancer ( 21 June – 22 July ) –. Personal changes run deep as you explore your ambitions and need for control over your life. You may study to advance your beliefs and your knowledge. You may wish to break the shackles of routine existence. You also shine a light on your future and your dreams, and you can make some progress with your future dreams. Career matters continue to bring some level of pressure, as the cosmos are asking you to structure your professional life in such a way that you are more effective in what you do. Favorable Dates: Jan 11 Favorable Colors: Red & Yellow

.Leo  ( 23 July – 22 August )  – You want to be in comfortable environments, with people who will nurture and support you, and you don’t want to try anything new, different, or futuristic. You would prefer traditional and conventional methods. You would be more defensive of your beliefs, and you’ll stand up for them no matter what, but should be more open-minded. If single, you can meet someone through your or their work. If you’re in a relationship, you pay attention to the little things with your partner and are less affectionate but more practical in love. Favorable Dates: Jan 11  Favorable Colors: Red & Green

Virgo ( 23 August – 22 September ) – You’re more comfortable going outside of your comfort zone and trying things out that are totally different from what you’d normally do. Your own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interests you more than anything else. You’re open to unconventional people, unique ideas, and unusual solutions to problems. This week finds you beginning to focus on a special relationship in earnest; it will either be very romantic and passionate or very combative. Either way, keep your feet on the ground, you may be beyond your depth here. Favorable Dates: Jan 9  Favorable Colors: White & Blue

Libra ( 23 September – 22 October) – You can be presented with a new career opportunity or get promoted, set a new one for yourself, or make a good impression on someone. You feel ambitious and focus on what you can get done and succeed with. If single, you can meet lots of potential mates, and you spend your time dating and flirting, playing coy, and while you could fall in love, it’s the playful kind. If you’re in a relationship, you can try to make it feel like it did when you first met, and fall in love with them all over again. Favorable Dates: Jan 12 Favorable Colors: Yellow & Green

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November ) – Your creative side can take over, and you want to be more artistic. You want to focus on the fun times, spend your time laughing and cracking jokes, and don’t want to take anything too seriously. You’re also more comfortable in the spotlight, and crave more attention from people and choose to see the best in people and situations.  This is a good time to do something that’s mutually beneficial to you and someone else and to deal with other people’s money (debts, loans, taxes, inheritances, joint finances). Favorable Dates: Jan 13 Favorable Colors: Yellow & White

Sagittarius (22 November -21 December) – You want to focus on your career and the goals you have, and you can work carefully, methodically, and create plans for what you want that are realistic and attainable. You’re positive about your career and goals and feel that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. Your finances are looking up, and you are feeling more positive and idealistic. Friendships are changing and new friends can bring new opportunities for travel and social experiences.  A soul-mate helps you to make a decision that may be life-altering. Favorable Dates: Jan 14  Favorable Colors: Red & White

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January) – You would have a period of increased financial opportunities. You are likely to get a raise or better paying job, start a second job, turn a hobby into a money-making venture, or find other ways to get more money. The harder you work for it, the more you’ll get. You can also redo your budget and find more wiggle room, and increase your finances that way. You can spend more time with loved ones, and show more affection for them. It is a wonderful time for learning and exchanging visits with siblings and friends.  Favorable Dates: Jan 10  Favorable Colors: Red & Purple

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February) – Your financial focus shifts from outside interests to your own. Money should be improving this week. You would feel most content when you straighten out all the details of everyday life. Most of you would take care of these things happily, although some won’t let on. Rethinking old routines, ideas, or even relationships in favour of new approaches will, inevitably, be tense and argumentative and a willingness to consider every angle can make this process work for you. You’re probing the realm of romance and you would be having amazing realizations. Favorable Dates: Jan 12  Favorable Colors: Red & Yellow

Pisces (19 February – 20 March) – You can make your biggest steps forward in your career this week if you pay special attention to opportunities provided by a partner or mate. This can be a good period to take an existing hobby and turn it into something beneficial, especially financially. If single, you can meet someone through a sibling or neighbour, or who lives near you. If in a relationship, you can tell your partner exactly how you feel about them. Whether it is unlikely romance, quirky goals, or life in a caravan – cultivate flexibility and be your lovely self. .Favorable Dates: Jan 13  Favorable Colors: White & Purple

Stouffville, Ontario – 24 juillet 2012 – Les membres de l’équipe de triathlon du Canada, dirigée par le porte-drapeau Simon Whitfield, viennent d’arriver à Londres pour les Jeux olympiques de 2012, mais ils ont déjà une longueur d’avance sur leurs concurrents. C’est parce qu’ils portent le Venowave VW5, un appareil fabriqué au Canada, le premier du genre, conçu pour améliorer la circulation, augmenter le flux sanguin dans les jambes et les pieds tout en améliorant la santé générale.

«Nous sommes ravis de pouvoir aider nos athlètes canadiens», a déclaré John Saringer, inventeur de Venowave, président et directeur général de Saringer Life Science Technologies Inc., une entreprise de Stouffville, en Ontario. «Notre produit est conçu pour améliorer la circulation sanguine, que l’utilisateur est un athlète de haut niveau ou un senior souffrant d’un gonflement chronique des jambes dû à une maladie vasculaire. ”

Le Venowave VW5 breveté est une pompe de compression compacte à piles qui se porte sur le mollet juste au-dessous du genou. Entièrement certifié par Santé Canada, la Federal Drug Administration (FDA) aux États-Unis et CE en Europe, il utilise un mouvement ondulatoire doux pour augmenter le débit sanguin, fournissant ainsi plus d’oxygène pour améliorer la circulation et améliorer les performances musculaires. Lorsqu’il est allumé, il imite le système veineux du corps, empêchant le sang de rester immobile et la coagulation.

En plus d’utiliser le produit pendant les voyages aériens pour prévenir des affections telles que la thrombose veineuse profonde (un problème commun lors des vols long-courriers), les triathlètes du Canada utilisent également le Venowave pendant les activités de pré-échauffement, de récupération et de guérison. temps de garder le sang circulant pour un flux sanguin optimal pendant les jeux.

Les études cliniques indiquent que le Venowave est efficace. De nombreux patients impliqués dans une étude récente ont rapporté une amélioration clinique après l’utilisation de l’appareil pendant une période de huit semaines. Les chercheurs ont conclu que le Venowave est une «nouvelle thérapie très prometteuse» pour les patients atteints du syndrome post-thrombotique sévère – un terme utilisé pour décrire les symptômes à long terme de maladies vasculaires comme la TVP, telles que la douleur, l’enflure, la lourdeur et le picotement. Le dispositif révolutionnaire est également utilisé pour traiter et prévenir les jambes enflées (œdème), l’insuffisance veineuse chronique (IVC), les varices, les plaies diabétiques des jambes et des pieds, le lymphoedème et la maladie artérielle périphérique (MAP).

Ce qui rend le Venowave unique, c’est sa mobilité. Contrairement aux dispositifs pneumatiques généralement utilisés dans les hôpitaux qui se fixent sur un mur et obligent les utilisateurs à rester stationnaires, le Venowave est léger et ne pèse que 250 grammes. Il peut être utilisé pour la marche, la course et la randonnée. En attendant, il est tout aussi efficace que les plus gros appareils, souligne Saringer.

“Le Venowave peut pomper comme les machines plus grandes, mais dans un très petit paquet”, dit-il, notant qu’il a inventé le produit comme un moyen d’améliorer la circulation sans les limitations. “Nos corps sont conçus pour bouger, il est donc parfaitement logique de développer une technologie qui permette la mobilité.”

La Dre Sonia Anand, directrice de la médecine vasculaire au McMaster University Hospital de Hamilton, est une fervente partisane du Venowave. «Chez les personnes qui ont un gonflement chronique des jambes, le Venowave peut être très utile pour prévenir la fin de la journée ou un gonflement important des jambes», explique le Dr Anand, qui a établi une clinique de médecine vasculaire à Hamilton en 2001. traite un grand nombre de patients souffrant de problèmes vasculaires. “Les individus peuvent continuer leurs activités habituelles sans avoir à s’asseoir, être branché sur un mur ou accroché à une machine.”

Les statistiques indiquent que près de 20 millions de personnes courent un risque élevé de développer une TVP chaque année et que plus de 50% des patients hospitalisés sont à risque de développer une TVP. Pendant ce temps, on estime que toutes les 30 secondes une personne dans le monde perd un membre inférieur en raison d’une plaie diabétique récurrente. Le Venowave favorise une guérison plus rapide dans les deux cas en raison de sa capacité unique à augmenter le flux sanguin.

Après avoir vu sa mère âgée subir une amputation douloureuse à la jambe en raison d’un ulcère du pied qui a refusé de guérir – même si elle était traitée par des chirurgiens vasculaires expérimentés et recevait des soins infirmiers quotidiens – Selwyn Firth, résidente de Toronto, l’a présentée au Venowave. croyant fermement dans ses capacités. Juste un mois après avoir utilisé le Venowave, une plaie d’orteil semblable sur le pied restant de sa mère avait complètement disparu. “Je pense que si j’avais su au sujet du Venowave quand la première blessure s’est produite, elle n’aurait jamais dû perdre sa jambe,” dit Firth.

Basé sur le succès initial de Venowave, Saringer Life Science Technologies recrute actuellement des patients qualifiés pour participer à des essais cliniques liés au traitement et à la prévention des ulcères de plaies diabétiques afin de

Reem Haleb and Zein Almoghraby
A huge thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us at Night for Rights this year. It was an incredible and enjoyable evening full of purpose, and we heard some very moving speeches that will stay in our memories for a long time.
Lieutenant General Romeo-Dallaire reminded us of the crucial role that media plays all over the world, specifically in conflict zones and the tremendous difference that brave journalists make on the daily.
Minister of Immigration Ahmed Hussen spoke of JHR’s effective feminist approach to media development in Africa.
Reem Haleb of Naseam Radio Syria showed us why press freedom is vitally important: “The Assad regime is more afraid of a camera, a mobile camera, than a weapon. Tyrants hate the truth, they silence journalists and create black holes to separate their victims from the world.”
Masai Ujiri delivered a powerful, charismatic and passionate speech as he reminded us that “democracy is not fool-proof” and we all have a part to play in standing up for human rights both at home and worldwide.

HISTORIC BLACK EDUCATIONAL ADVOCACY GROUP LAUNCHES GROUNDBREAKING CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Washington, D.C. – The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) is kicking off a Capital Campaign to retire its mortgage and to renovate its existing building at 310 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, Washington, D.C. The $1.5 million effort will seek contributions from non-profit foundations, businesses and corporations, affiliates, past presidents and life members.
With the facility paid off NABSE can better offer viable, robust programming, and greater opportunities to serve the educational needs of African American students, teachers and parents. The historical culture of the organization’s volunteerism, care, giving, and doing can be traced to a deep sense of advocacy for social justice in Black communities.
“The Capital Campaign will allow us to foster and expand the spirit of our work by assuring that we maintain a National headquarters where we can continue to create, advocate, and educate. Retiring our mortgage will allow us to concentrate on serious programmatic efforts to shape the educational policy for children of color in the United States to succeed.” said President Marietta English.
The National Alliance of Black School Educators is the nation’s premier non-profit organization devoted to furthering the academic success for the nation’s children- particularly children of African descent. NABSE boasts an outreach to more than 10,000 preeminent educators including teachers, administrators, superintendents as well as corporate and institutional members. Founded in 1970, NABSE is dedicated to improving both the educational experiences and accomplishments of African-American youth through the development and use of instructional and motivational methods that increase levels of inspiration, attendance and overall achievement. Visit http://nabse.org/ for more details.

V. Call Out for Zine and Podcast Participants & Volunteers

You can record your submission by making an appointment at the station if you would like to record it here. Alternately, you can record on your cell phone or other audio recording device and email the audio to admin@ckut.ca. You can also leave your submission on the listener’s comment line voicemail 514-448-4041 ext 2547

If you have any archives, cassettes, photos, flyers, or posters that you think should be included in our time capsule, please dig them up! We can scan and digitalize for you.
