To Swim or Not to Swim

  • Posted on June 25, 2015 at 4:22 pm

To swim or not to swim; that is the question on many minds for those who live along North Carolina’s coast this morning. Yesterday, yet another shark attack happened off the coast of NC. This time it was an 8 year old boy in Surf City and he was only in water up to his knees stated Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. The boy only had minor injuries to his lower leg, his heal, and ankle. He was one of the lucky ones. This is the fourth shark attack in the span of two weeks in the same area so one may wonder; how many swimmers have to be injured before warning signs get posted? Not even two weeks ago a 12-year old girl and a 16-year old boy both lost limbs in similar attacks. Officials said the new case wasn’t serious and no warnings have been issued. This boys injury may have been minor but when you have that many incidents and you have kids losing limbs, a warning at minimum is necessary. The first attack by a shark happened on June 11th, to a 13-year old girl who was on a boogie board. She was luck to have received relatively minor injuries like the boy from Wednesdays attack. So, how many kids have to lose limbs before warnings go up? If the boy had received more grievous wounds would officials be taking this more serious?

EMT Saves Baby Born in Driveway

  • Posted on June 25, 2015 at 1:06 pm

It is not uncommon for some pregnant women not to make it to the hospital before giving birth in the not-quite-so-ideal locations without proper medical attention. A woman in North Adams, Massachusetts recently gave birth to her baby girl right in her driveway. The newborn, who her parents named Savannah, had come out so unexpectedly that she ended up hitting her head on the pavement. In a panic, her father called 911 immediately for help.

That is when, according to the story on Mass Live, the North Adams Ambulance Service was dispatched to their home said Brian Torchin. Assistant Chief Amalio Jusino along with his crew that included EMT Kevin Stant and Lt. Amanda Tobin made it to the home within 90 seconds. The team noticed that the baby was not breathing correctly and immediately went to work helping her. They kept both mother and baby warm and comfortable while they rushed them to the hospital. There it was found that Savannah had a fracture to her skull. The doctors there determined that the baby would heal just fine on her own. Both mother and child are now doing well.

Jusino said that the call was an emotional one and it was hard to hold back his tears however he is relieved that there was a happy ending for everyone involved.

Red Eyes and Chlorine

  • Posted on June 24, 2015 at 4:49 pm

The Centers for Disease Control has recently teamed up with Water Quality as well as the Health Council and the National Swimming Pool Foundation to run a few tests on the pool water. They started this quest to educate the public on the dangers of swimming pools as well as how to stay healthy when swimming in the pool.

It has been discovered that those coughs from the indoor pool as well as the irritated eyes are caused by a chemical mixture of sweat, chlorine and best of all, urine. As of recently the CDC has been completing these investigations as a result of an increase in disease outbreaks from swimming pools. The spreading of disease has been attributed to those with diarrhea swimming in the pool.

Even if the given source is not defecating in the pool, diarrhea can still be spread through the germs. This is why the CDC recommends that the everyone takes showers before getting into the pool.

The misconception that chlorine eliminated all germs and bacteria is untrue says Steven Murray CCMP Capital . In fact, chlorine can even mix with the germs to form great threat to the human population. Though the chlorine kills bacteria such as E.Coli, it takes 16 minutes to kill Hepatitis A and 10 days to kill the Cryptosporidium parasite.

So word of caution to those who want to dive into a public pool. Remember that before even getting into the pool, it is important to take a shower first.

Walmart Pulling All Confederate Flag Merchandise Off The Shelves

  • Posted on June 23, 2015 at 8:12 pm

Walmart knows when to get rid of merchandise that might indicate their stores support violence behavior, or condone the use of illegal items and substances. The Confederate flag is one of those items that Walmart wants to distance itself from especially after the horrendous incident in South Carolina recently. Walmart decided to remove Confederate flags from their assortment in all stores and on their website. The company announcement comes on the heels of South Carolina’s decision to remove the Confederate flag from the state capitol building.

Walmart is not the only store to offer Confederate flags and other symbols of the Civil War for sale. Amazon and EBay along with other retailers have an assortment of products that are now considered inappropriate and distasteful. Other stores should follow Walmart’s lead, and pull their versions of this offensive merchandise from their active merchandise category. Brad Reifler says that consumers across the country are expressing their desire to have those items taken off the market, and that will happen.

Removing the Confederate flag is a good first step, but getting rid of the hatred that the flag represents is harder fix. There is a deep rooted hatred that runs through the minds of some people, and that hatred is hard to remove.

The Parent and the Politician

  • Posted on June 23, 2015 at 1:11 pm

It is unsure whether or not candidates running for United States politics realize just how pivotal their children are to their campaign and their image. Ted Cruz was seen getting ready to give a speech on his campaign when his advisors noticed that he had a more pressing matter at hand. The man who should have been going over his lines was struggling to get his daughter to eat breakfast. Politicians who are running for the presidency are showing themselves as young and fresh faces for the field of politics. With their children in tow, these candidates are trying to give off the impression that they can relate to the struggles of parenthoods. 90 percent of the candidates have used humourous and sometimes gut wrenching stories to detail what it is like to be parents. When their listeners and supporters hear these stories the get a deeper glimpse into the lives of the candidates. Listeners can connect with the politicians while they hear these stories; more so than when candidates are boasting numbers and data that they think will sway their voting decision. These candidates are proving how much they are willing to sacrifice in order to potentially run the country for American citizens. According to Susan Mcgalla on susanmcgalla.com, Mark Rubio was one of the first candidates to touch on how tough it was to be away from home while on the campaign trail. Americans get to see a more personalized part of politicians while seeing the members of his family who will hold them accountable.

The Rate is on the Rise

  • Posted on June 22, 2015 at 4:54 pm
Researchers who tracked the birth rate on American citizens were worried for the last decade or so. In the last 10 years, the birthrate a baby’s has been on a steady decline. However, a recent study word detail how an increase in birth rates is on the horizon for American families. For the first time since the year 2000 and 7 women are giving birth to more babies across every racial group and class division. In 2014 there were almost 4 million babies born. That calculates to a 53000 baby a year increase. The data was released by the CDC P. It was noted that fewer teenagers are having baby as well as women in their early twenties. For women between the early thirties and forties, the birth rate skyrocketed. Many of these women birth children that were there first born. In the same sentence, the rate for second, third, and fourth births were also on the rise. Asian and Pacific Islander women saw a 6% increase in birth rates while black, white, and Hispanic women saw a 1% increase. The decline in the last 10 years was attributed to teens fearing what life would be like as a teenage parent. The readily available birth control forms and wave of teens who are waiting to have sex also attributed to the decline. The CDC hopes that teenagers continue to wait to have children but don’t hold off too far into life said Jaime Garcia Dias.

The Little Purple Pill May Cause Heart Attacks

  • Posted on June 22, 2015 at 4:27 pm
Nexium has been touted to be the ‘little purple pill’ in their ad campaigns. The pharmaceutical company which manufacturers the heartburn drug wanted to ride the fame of the ad campaign regarding a little blue pill in hopes that consumers would remember the purple color and reach for their drug next time they had heartburn.
The purple color is not the only thing Nexium will be remembered for according to recent research findings. The purple pill, along with all the other proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), may be causing heart attacks.
The electronic data your doctor is inputing into his or her laptop while you’re in their office seems very rude and impersonal to the patient says Kevin Seawright. That it is, but it may also prevent you from having a heart attack. This method of keeping electronic medical records has the ability to allow to researchers to gather information on trends, side effects and a variety of other issues that may impact your health. That’s how is was discovered that patients who take commonly prescribed heartburn medication are having an above-normal rate of heart attacks.
The research findings may cause doctors and patients to treat heartburn with a different drug or different approach and save lives by preventing heart attacks caused from PPI heartburn drugs.

To Eat or Not to Eat: The Placenta Dilemma

  • Posted on June 18, 2015 at 6:58 pm

We human beings do some strange things in our efforts to live healthy lives and promote overall well-being. Among those strange things is eating one’s placenta after the birth of a baby. Those who promote this unusual dietary choice, also known as placentophagy, point to the animal kingdom where the practice is normal. They say that eating the placenta has a number of important nutritional and health benefits. Those on the other side say the scientific data just doesn’t stack up.

A study recently published in the Archives of Women’s Mental Health reviewed 10 other studies utilizing both human and animal subjects. Researchers could not find any usable data in these studies to support claims made by placentophagy proponents. On the other hand, other studies have shown that the placenta is far from safe. It can contain all sorts of bacteria, heavy metals, and other dangerous components.

The jury is still out as to the efficacy and safety of eating human placenta. Should you decide to do so yourself, you can consume human placenta raw, cooked, or even made into convenient capsules. Whether or not it does anything for you remains to be seen. If it turns out science eventually does prove placentophagy to be nutritionally or medically beneficial, you could say you were ahead of your time. In the meantime, The Aspire New Brunswick welcomes placentophages and anti-placentophages alike.
