The Northwest Pasadena health care provider will pay for training caregivers to be trained in two programs aimed at improving the way caregivers respond to patients and to help patients with chronic illness.ChapCare employees will be trained under the Certified Medical Assistant Program, a course designed to enhance patient relations and diagnostic procedures. They will also be certified under the Care Navigator Apprenticeship Program, to train and prepare caregivers to respond to the needs of patients who have complex, ongoing problems. According to ChapCare, tasks will include all aspects of clinical care, and mentally preparing patients for self-management.Recently, two-full time Care Navigators were deployed at ChapCare to work with patients in the Pasadena area. Chapcare was chosen for the CNAP program by the Work Education and Resource Center, the company that trains those enrolled in the program.“Providing high quality, comprehensive care to our patients is our foremost concern,” said Margaret B. Martinez, ChapCare’s CEO. “These new programs help support this goal by enhancing and expanding our primary care team and the breadth of services they can provide.”ChapCare was founded in 1995 by members of the Pasadena community to establish primary health care services for low-income and uninsured individuals. They began providing medical services in 1998 and since have expanded to nearby cities in the San Gabriel Valley, such as Monrovia and El Monte. Currently, they provide 64,000 annual visits for over 15,000 patients.For more information on ChapCare, please call (626) 398-6300 or visit www.chapcare.org.

11 Honeybee respect

first_imgBy Amanda M. EllisUniversity of GeorgiaWhen a honeybee buzzes the blooms in your garden, give it somerespect. The pollination it and other honeybees are providing issupplying an estimated one-third of the world’s food. In the United States alone, honeybee pollination provides a$20-billion boost to agriculture. And we may be in danger oflosing these vital pollinators.Over the past 20 years, some exotic honeybee pests have beenintroduced into the U.S.The most devastating of these is the varroa mite. To a bee, thismite is like having a basketball-sized tick attached to yourside. You can imagine the damage it causes as it sucks thehoneybee’s blood.Varroa mites transmit viruses to the bee, too, causing evengreater sickness. These mites have all but wiped out wild U.S.colonies of honeybees. As a result, the honeybees in NorthAmerica are virtually all domesticated, relying on beekeepers tomanage the devastating mites.Garden pollinatorsAnd just when overall bee health is at its lowest, we needhoneybees more than ever. Honeybees are important pollinators forgardeners at all levels.Pollination is the movement of pollen from the male part of aflower to the female part. It’s vital to plant reproduction. Mostplants need pollination to produce fruit. Some even requirecross-pollination to set more and larger fruit.Other types of native bee pollinators are out there. But habitatdestruction and urban development have reduced their populations,too, in many areas.Honeybees fill the pollination void left by native species.They’re excellent pollinators because of their generalistforaging habits and large colony sizes, with 30,000 to 60,000bees per hive.Honeybees visit plants to collect both pollen and nectar to useas food. They use pollen as a protein source for rearing babybees. And nectar, which they process and store in the hive ashoney, is their primary energy source.Bee dancingTo “tell” one another where pollen and nectar-rich plants are,honeybees use a special dance language known as the waggle dance.During spring and summer, forager bees work from sunup tosundown, working themselves to death in only six weeks.Pests such as varroa mites bring bees’ death even faster, makingthis valuable pollinator scarce in many areas. The honeybee laboratory at the University of Georgia is at theforefront of honeybee research. The lab’s primary researchemphases focus on controlling bee pests and studying pollinationecology.Scientists are making strides in both areas. And just in time.Honeybee health is at an all-time low.Honeybees are a vital component not just of a successful gardenbut of agriculture, too. So, support and promote honeybees andbeekeeping in your area. After all, honeybees give you one-thirdof all the food you eat.(Amanda Ellis is a graduate student in entomology with theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)

Financial trade groups support AML modernization bill

first_imgTwelve financial groups on January 4th thanked Reps. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) and Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) for introducing an anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorist financing modernization bill that will help prevent criminals from using shell companies to hide illicit activity.The bill would impose a beneficial ownership reporting requirement on closely held, non-public legal entities and provide financial institutions with access to reported information to help them with their customer due diligence compliance efforts.“Financial institutions should be able to rely on the information reported by businesses to FinCEN, which would, in turn, reduce the reporting burden on those businesses,” the groups said. 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

Clippers’ Austin Rivers hopes to be back in time for playoff opener

first_imgNow, it’s Austin Rivers.While Jamal Crawford is rightly credited as the team’s top reserve, Rivers has been just as valuable, averaging 12 points and shooting 44.2 percent from the field.“As much as he’s been important to us offensively,” Doc Rivers said, “we’re going to miss his defense especially, putting him on literally anybody one-to-three. We don’t have that anymore, so hopefully we get it back, shoot, by playoffs.”The most pressing question is what Austin Rivers’ injury means for the Clippers’ hopes of not losing their grasp of the fifth seed. He said as long as he is healthy by Game 1 – regardless of opponent – he’ll be content.“We’re going to win our games,” he said. “We’ll get seeded wherever we get seeded. I just want to be right for Game 1 and I believe I will be. So with that note, obviously, it is frustrating because you don’t want to have anything nagging but at least we have time to get it right.”March madness****Doc Rivers called the March schedule “one of the hardest months I’ve ever seen,” with 18 games, five sets of back-to-backs and four one-game trips.For better or worse, the Clippers survived it.Now, they get to play their final five games over 13 days, giving them ample time for rest and practice.“That’s going to be helpful for us just to practice,” the Clippers coach said. “Even though we won’t go long, we went a whole month without a practice (before Tuesday), so it will be nice to be able to get back on the floor and just work, and try to get our continuity.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Rivers said he “just felt something jerk, pull a little bit,” in his left leg after his first shot against the Wizards and after a couple more minutes asked out of the game. He is targeting a return in time for Game 1 of a best-of-7 first-round series, which is at least two weeks away.“It’s just another guy out,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “It’s been that way all year, so guys are pretty used to it.”The Clippers have been undone by injuries in the last 15 months, and this season Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have both missed 21 games with injuries that overlapped and left the Clippers without at least one of their stars for a span of two months.Austin Rivers said “people haven’t given (the Clippers) enough credit” for the way the Clippers have overcome injuries this year.“People are always looking for something wrong with our team instead of looking for what’s right,” he said. “Why don’t you look at how many injuries we’ve had and still been able to hold down the ship in the West, and still be a top-five seed in the West without Blake and Chris for a big chunk of games?”center_img PHOENIX>> Austin Rivers shuffled slowly through a corridor of Talking Stick Resort Arena. The reserve will be critical to the Clippers in the playoffs, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to help them before then.Rivers will likely be sidelined for the remaining five games of the regular season after suffering a strained left hamstring in Wednesday’s win over Washington.“It’s definitely a little frustrating,” Rivers said, as he watched his teammates warm up prior to tip-off against the Suns. “This is the time of year, if anytime, I want to be healthy. … At least it’s not during the playoffs.”last_img read more
