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.

On the timing of moulting processes in reproductively active Northern krill Meganyctiphanes norvegica
The interactions between moult phasing, growth and environmental cues in Northern krill (Meganyctiphanes norvegica) were examined through analysing populations at seasonal, weekly, and daily timescales. The analyses were carried out on resident populations of krill found in three different neritic locations that experience similar environmental signals (the Clyde Sea, Scotland; the Kattegat, Denmark; Gullmarsfjord, Sweden). Seasonal analyses were carried out on the Clyde Sea population and showed that moulting frequency increased significantly moving from winter to summer. The proportion of moulting females in summer samples was often more than double the proportion of moulting males, suggesting that females had a comparatively shorter intermoult period (IMP). Weekly samples taken from the Kattegat showed a similar pattern. However, although the difference between the proportion of female and male moulters was significant in one week, it was not another, mainly because of the variability in the proportion of female moulters. Such variability in females was equally evident in the daily samples taken at Gullmarsfjord. It suggests that females have a shorter IMP (12.5 days) than males (18.4 days) and are more likely to moult in synchrony. Nevertheless, the daily samples revealed that males are also capable of moult synchronisation, although less frequently than females. Shortened IMPs in females were not a result of the abbreviation of specific moult stages. Accordingly, reproductive activity did not alter the course of the normal moult cycle. There was no significant difference between the total body lengths of males and females indicating that females achieve the same levels of growth despite moulting more frequently and having to provision the energy-rich ovaries. This is in contrast to most other crustaceans where the energy costs of reproduction reduce female growth. The fact that females were less abundant than males, probably by suffering a greater level of mortality, suggests that different behavioural strategies, particularly vertical migration regimes, were adopted by each sex to maximise growth and reproduction.
SEC-Bacolodpeople “acted strictly as observers of the proceedings,” it added, and thatthey did not participate in any manner whatsoever, and did not give any opinionor legal advice. BACOLOD City –The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) – Bacolod Extension Office deniedit is taking sides in the ongoing management dispute among two factions of theYanson family that owns and operates Vallacar Transit, Inc. (VTI), thecountry’s biggest bus company. That same day,the other faction also held a stockholders’ meeting — at the Ceres bus compoundin Barangay Mansilingan. This faction was composed of VTI founder Olivia Yansonand her two other children Leo Rey Yanson and Ginnette Yanson-Dumancas. On Dec. 7 SECrepresentatives were seen at the stockholders’ meeting of a faction of theYansons, the so-called Yanson 4 or Y4 composed of siblings Roy, Ricardo Jr.,Emily, and Ma.

KwaZulu-Natal is an important hub of industrial development in sub-Saharan Africa, thanks to its rich natural resources and well-developed infrastructure.The container terminal at the Port of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. (Image: Brand South Africa)Economic activities in the province are mainly concentrated on the port of Durban and the capital, Pietermaritzburg, with significant contributions in the Richards Bay-Empangeni area, the Ladysmith-Ezakheni area, the Newcastle-Madadeni regions as well as on the south coast.KwaZulu-Natal province overviewGallery: All-year sunshine in KwaZulu-NatalKwaZulu-Natal provincial governmentTrade & Investment KwaZulu-NatalInvestment opportunitiesKwaZulu-Natal is a competitive region for foreign investment, particularly for re-export opportunities through the port of Durban.The province has identified nine prime targets for inward investment: textiles, clothing, plastic products, chemicals, fabricated metal products, automotive components, wood and wood products, footwear, machinery and appliances. Of these, primary and processed aluminium at world competitive prices from local suppliers, provides a real opportunity for investors in the sector.Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal promotes strategic business growth in the province. Services to prospective inward investors include:Pre- and post-establishment support, such as feasibility studies, liaison with government departments, marketing, technical and financial analyses, and assistance with legal formalities and regional regulations.Provision of infrastructure and utilities.Lease or sale of land and property.Loans for acquisition of plant and equipment.Working capital loans.Introductions to key contacts, such as auditing companies, legal practitioners, material suppliers and shipping groups.IndustryRichards Bay is the centre of operations for South Africa’s aluminium industry. The Richards Bay Coal Terminal is instrumental in securing the country’s position as the second-largest exporter of steam coal in the world. Richards Bay Minerals is the largest sand-mining and mineral-processing operation in the world.Richards Bay Coal TerminalThe vehicle-manufacturing industry has created a considerable multiplier effect in component and service providers. The automotive leather industry has grown rapidly, with exports significantly increasing foreign exchange earnings. KwaZulu-Natal has also recently undergone rapid industrialisation, thanks to its abundant water supply and labour resources. Industries are found at Newcastle, Ladysmith, Dundee, Richards Bay, Durban, Hammarsdale, Richmond, Pietermaritzburg and Mandeni.Substantial progress has been made to the Dube Trade Port and King Shaka International Airport project at La Mercy. It is estimated that redevelopment of the current airport site will create 269 200 jobs over a 25-year period.Durban Chamber of CommerceNewcastle Chamber of CommerceZululand Chamber of BusinessManufacturingThe three largest manufacturing industries are pulp and paper products (19%), chemicals and petrochemicals (17%), and food and beverages (16%).In the chemicals and petrochemicals sector, industrial chemicals comprise a third, at R1.1-billion, of the gross output, petroleum and coal products 30% at R1-billion, chemicals 21% at R700-million, and rubber and plastic products the balance. In the textiles, clothing and leather sector, which represents 15% of the manufacturing sector, textiles contributed 54% at R1.6-billion and clothing 27% at R800-million.The manufacturing sector is geared for export, with nearly a third of South Africa’s manufactured exports being produced in KwaZulu-Natal.TourismThe Lubombo Spatial Development Initiative (see below) has created unique opportunities for investment in tourism in the St Lucia region. The governments of Mozambique, South Africa and Swaziland are launching tourism investment opportunities on a scale unparalleled in Africa – in an area of immense potential underpinned by a wealth of natural and cultural resources, including a pristine coastline, classic African game parks, the southernmost coral reefs in Africa and rich indigenous cultures.KwaZulu-Natal Tourism AuthorityKwaZulu-Natal WildlifeLubombo Spatial Development InitiativeStraddling southern Mozambique, eastern Swaziland and northern KwaZulu-Natal, the Lubombo region has some of the most picturesque and unspoiled natural attractions in Africa. At the heart of the region nestles the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, one of South Africa’s seven Unesco World Heritage Sites.The Lubombo region is currently enjoying the biggest and most prolonged tourism boom in its history. The year 2005 marked the 17th successive year of increased foreign visitor arrivals in South Africa, with a record of over 7-million overseas tourists choosing to holiday in the country.The growth in international tourism comes on top of a large, established domestic tourism market currently worth twice as much as its foreign counterpart.Recognising the opportunities offered by this robust growth, a number of excellent tourism investment opportunities have been identified in each of the three countries. These range from beach resorts to boutique hotels and game lodges, and are designed to help establish the Lubombo region as global tourism destination.Until now, the region’s inaccessibility has inhibited development beyond some game reserves and a few lodges. A major new tourist road and secondary roads are being constructed as part of the Lubombo SDI.Some R630-million has been committed to regional support networks such as new roads and the upgrading of the major national access route, park infrastructure such as game fences, internal road networks and tourism facilities, the restocking of the park and various regional programmes that include major new malaria eradication drive.Brand South Africa reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Harold Watters, Ohio State University ExtensionIt seems everyone has a “package” that gives an extra yield bump. Many of these packages contain micronutrients. In Ohio, because we generally have clay in our soil and reasonable levels of organic matter, we don’t usually see a yield impact from applying micronutrients. But should we be concerned about micronutrients?Our soil tests are most reliable for pH, phosphorus and potassium and can work reasonably well for zinc, too. We usually use a combination of soil and tissue tests to determine micronutrient deficiencies. Soil pH can also help us know where to look for deficiencies. See your copy of the Corn, Soybean, Wheat and Alfalfa Field Guide for descriptions and pictures of nutrient deficiencies by crop.Typically we will see deficiencies occur in small isolated areas of a field first. When these are noted, pull both a soil and a tissue sample out of the “good” area and out of the “poor” area and compare the results. Also check a recent yield map for losses in that area. Nutrient deficiencies I have seen of late are potassium from early dry conditions and occasionally sulfur — neither of these are micronutrients however.It is interesting to note that we have two different philosophies in Ohio on nutrients. We build and maintain for the macros, but wait until we see deficiencies and apply as needed for the micros. This difference in philosophy results from the fact that we have so few micronutrient deficiencies in Ohio.Are we short on sulfur yet? Maybe, in some very low organic matter soils, but generally probably not. In nine trials I have conducted over the past six years I have yet to see an increase in yield from the addition of sulfur, but I am doing the work again this year. I do expect as we continue to clean up our power plant emissions that we will eventually see a need for added sulfur. In the meantime, save your money, or do a little trial work of your own.What about that other “stuff” that costs just $5 an acre. I regularly check out those advertisements, and listen to the sales pitch at farm shows but usually walk away without making a purchase. I recently had a farmer tell me about a product that was absolutely the “best ever, and guaranteed to boost yield.” I asked him why I never heard of it? Because if it’s that good, there would be 25 university tests showing how great it is… and we (the OSU Agronomic Crops Team members) would be telling everyone about it.

Tags:#Cartoons#web 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App rob cottingham Related Posts 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… This one came to me while I was watching an episode of Burn Notice (please hold your applause until the end of the post), where Michael, Fiona, Sam and Jesse have realized they have a piece of unspeakably important information in their hands. And maybe a decade ago, I would have found their dilemma compelling.But today? In a few minutes, they could post it to Tumblr, Posterous, WordPress, 4chan and – just for the hell of it – Plenty of Fish, with plenty of time left over for Michael and Fiona to agonize over their relationship, for Sam and Fiona to explore their rivalry for Michael’s attention (I suspect they each had emotionally distant parents), and for Michael and Jesse to finally acknowledge the sexual tension between them.It’s possible I’m overreaching. That may have to be a two-parter.My point is this: time was when a screenwriter’s greatest enemies were the studio system, writer’s block and, well, other screenwriters. But now writers working in the action/adventure/suspense/blowing-stuff-up genre also have to contrive ways to deprive a character of connectivity.So to the action movie clichés of which wire to cut and cars slamming into fruit carts, you can soon add batteries running low, cell phone jammers, and “Why did I choose AT&T?”
