From Florida Hospital – ApopkaThere’s a good chance you take a prescription drug – about 82 percent of American adults do, and an additional 29 percent take up to five, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What you may not realize is what eat and drink can impact how drugs work.Richard Montgomery Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply 1 COMMENT TAGSFlorida Hospital – ApopkaFood and Drug Interactions Previous articlePassport Week returns to ApopkaNext articleMagnolia Park Eco-Tourism Meeting Report Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply October 21, 2016 at 6:21 pm We sat down with Tenille Yates, registered dietitian, and Richard Montgomery, pharmacy services director, with Florida Hospital, who fills us in on four foods that most commonly interact with medications.1. Green leafy vegetables“When it comes to leafy greens, we tell patients to only enjoy them once or twice a week rather than avoiding it all together,” says Yates. “The biggest one is a drug called Warafin, a blood-thinning drug.”“And vitamin K, which helps clot blood, is the antidote if you have too much Warafin in your system,” Montgomery adds. “The drug may not perform as well to keep your blood thin.”2. Aged cheese“Tyramine shows up in aged cheeses like gouda, parmesan and blue cheese,” says Yates. “It is also in wine, beer, soy sauce and most meats.”“Those can interact with MAO inhibitors (anti-depressants such as Nardil), anti-Parkinson’s medications and antibiotics,” says Montgomery. This can add to a rise in blood pressure.3. GrapefruitIf you’re a fan of grapefruit or grapefruit juice, it’s smart to check with your physician and pharmacist before taking medications, such as cholesterol meds, blood thinners or tranquilizers, with it. Grapefruit juice blocks special enzymes in the wall of the small intestine and can actually destroy many medications to a certain degree.4. Dairy products“Be careful when taking certain antibiotics,” says Montgomery. “The calcium in the milk, can bind with the antibiotic to make it less effective.”As with any prescription for new medication, or even if you’re trying a new over-the counter drug, it’s a good idea to read the drug warning label first. Mongtomery advises asking whether you should take the drug with meals or not and if there are any specific foods that you should avoid.“Your pharmacist is a great resource so don’t be too shy to ask us,” he says.

Reports News Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Canva July 15, 2020 – Updated on July 17, 2020 US – RSF concerned that visa review could force dozens of Voice of America journalists to leave the United States June 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information A spokesperson for USAGM announced on July 9 that the agency is assessing renewal applications for J-1 visas at Voice of America (VOA), one of the broadcasters overseen by USAGM. USAGM’s new Trump-appointed CEO, Michael Pack, allegedly signalled that he would not approve visa extensions. Sixty-two contractors and 14 full-time VOA employees currently working in the United States on J-1 visas are at risk of being forced to return to their home countries, where some could face retaliation due to their reporting. An unknown number of foreign journalists at USAGM’s other media entities are affected by this decision as well. “Foreign journalists are crucial to the mission of USAGM’s media outlets, which is to produce news in dozens of languages so citizens in nations without independent media can access reliable reporting,” said Daphne Pellegrino, Advocacy Manager for RSF’s North America bureau. “Failing to extend the visas these journalists rely on to work in the United States only empowers governments that restrict freedom of information, and more critically, it could endanger the safety of journalists who have been working for USAGM media outlets when they return to their home nations. USAGM should quickly reverse course to ensure these journalists can remain in the United States, where they can work safely and help further the agency’s mission to inform.”This is not the first decision Pack has made since being appointed CEO of USAGM that threatens to weaken the agency’s media outlets. Just weeks after his confirmation, Pack abruptly removed the heads of four of the agency’s news outlets on June 17 in what was described as the “Wednesday night massacre.” At the time, RSF called on USAGM and the new heads of each outlet to respect their independence, as required by the agency’s statutory “firewall” protecting USAGM outlets from outside editorial interference.The United States is ranked 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Comments are closed. A new distance-learning programme enabling the study of the control ofhazardous substances in the workplace is now available. CoSHH risk assessment 2003 is a new user-friendly multi-media course thatreplicates the original programme, which is usually held at IOSH’s Wigston headoffice, but enables delegates to study at their workplace or home rather thanhaving to travel. The course covers CoSHH regulations, hazard data, CHIP regulations and anumber of other key factors in the control of hazardous substances. It allows amuch greater degree of flexibility, and rather than having to complete it intwo days, you can finish as and when you like. Original course tutor, Geoff Hornby, has teamed up with computer-basedtraining specialists to design the programme, which contains a CD that aims togive the health and safety professional everything they need to gain acomprehensive understanding of CoSHH regulations. The CD, which will require a minimum of Windows 95 to run, also comes with afull copy of lecture notes, copies of both written and practical assessmentsand a videotape to accompany the practical exam. This allows the course contentto be reviewed over and over again. The programme, which can be purchased either on individual or five-personlicences, costs £575+VAT for a one-person licence, or £1,950+VAT for afive-person licence. To purchase a copy of the programme or to take part in the course, contactZoe Whitehead in IOSH’s professional affairs department on 0116 257 3124.

Measurements of stratospheric NO2 by ground-based visible spectrometers rely on laboratory measurements of absorption cross-sections. We review low-temperature laboratory measurements, which disagree by amounts claimed to be significant. Our recalculation of their errors shows that in general disagreements are not significant and that errors in the ratios of cross-sections at low to room temperature are between ±3% and ±8.8%. Of these errors, up to ±3.5% was contributed by errors in the equilibrium constant,Kp, in those measurements where the pressure was above 0.1 mbar. We review measurements and calculations ofKp, which were accurate to ±5% from 300 to 233 K. Each method was potentially flawed. For example, infrared measurements of the partial pressure of NO2 ignored the dependence of absorption on total pressure. From thermodynamic theory, formulae forKpcan be derived from expressions for the variation of heat capacity with temperature. Contrary to common belief, coefficients in the formulae used by spectroscopists were not derived from the thermodynamic quantities. Rather, they were fitted to measurements or to calculations. Hence, they are empirical and it is dangerous to extrapolate below 233 K, the lowest temperature of the measurements. There are no measurements of NO2 cross-sections below 230 K. Extrapolation of these cross-sections to analysis of measurements of NO2 at the low temperatures of the Arctic and Antarctic stratosphere is also dangerous. For satisfactory analysis of polar spectra, the NO2 cross-sections should be measured at temperatures down to 190 K with a relative accuracy of ±1%. This difficult experiment would need a cell of minimum length 32 m whose length can be adjusted. Because their effects are circular, many errors cannot be removed simply. Although circular errors also arise in the measurements ofKpand of the infrared spectrum, their weights differ from those in the visible spectrum. The optimum experiment might therefore simultaneously measure the visible and infrared spectra andKp.
SeaWiFS was used to examine the spatial and temporal distribution of chlorophyll-a (chl-a) concentrations around the island of South Georgia during four summers between October 1997 and March 2001. A comparison was made between SeaWiFS and ship-collected (in situ) chl-a gathered during three of these seasons. A significant correlation was found between daily SeaWiFS and in situ match-ups (r(2) = 0.62). At low chl-a concentrations ( 5 mg m(-3)). Analysis of SeaWiFS data from two survey boxes (the Western and Eastern Core Boxes) sampled during cruises indicated significant differences between seasons and regions; the 1999 and 2000 seasons were nearly twice as productive as the 1998 and 2001 seasons. In addition, phytoplankton biomass was significantly higher in the Western (similar to1.4 mg m(-3)) than in the Eastern Core Box (similar to0.6 mg m(-3)). These seasonal and regional differences also were reflected in the distribution of copepods, one of the major zooplankton groups around South Georgia. SeaWiFS revealed patterns of growth outside of the survey boxes and cruise periods (January only). Blooms regularly occurred to the southwest and directly north of the island, and occasionally occupied the entire area between South Georgia and the Polar Front. In addition, blooms took place any time between October and March but not continuously. Primary production at South Georgia is mainly a local feature with little growth initiated upstream. However, chl-a may remain elevated downstream of the island (similar to40degreesW) as part of a continuous feature along the Polar Front to the 0degrees meridian. The passage of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current over the ridge and shelf waters in the vicinity of South Georgia may contribute micronutrients such as iron, and could partially explain the elevated chl-a levels associated with the island. We also examine the role of temperature, light and grazing on controlling phytoplankton productivity in this region of the Southern Ocean.
Beau Lund June 19, 2019 /Sports News – National 103-year-old nicknamed the ‘Hurricane’ wins yet another gold in 100-meter dash FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBrit Huckabay/NSGA(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) — At 103, Julia Hawkins might have fallen short of the record-setting 100-meter dash she completed two years ago, but she is still living up to her nickname the “Hurricane.”At the 2019 Senior Games in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Hawkins won gold medals in both the 50-meter dash and the 100-meter dash in the women’s 100-plus division.At the 2017 games, Hawkins, of Louisiana, set a world record with her 100-meter dash. She finished slightly slower at the race on Tuesday.“I’m thrilled I did as well as I did but I didn’t do as well as I have done,” Hawkins told “Good Morning America.” “I don’t know if it’s because I’m older, or maybe it was the atmosphere.”Hawkins is a mother of four, grandmother of three and great-grandmother of three who picked up competitive cycling later in life, winning multiple national titles.She turned to running at age 100 when biking on mountainous courses became too challenging.She is the oldest woman to compete on an American track, according to the National Senior Games Association, the non-profit organization that runs the Senior Games.“I just keep busy. I keep moving,” Hawkins said of her longevity. “I don’t do any exercises particularly. I used to, but I don’t think I need to anymore.”“I’ve always been careful how I eat, eat healthy and keep my weight at a certain point,” she added.Hawkins gets most of her activity working in her garden at her home in Louisiana. Inside her home are all the gold medals she’s accumulated over the years.“[I keep them] here and there. I’ve got a good many,” she said of her medals. “My husband made a box for me to keep them.”When it comes to planning ahead for her next race, Hawkins said, “You never know.”“When you’re 103, every day is a miracle,” she said. “I just keep getting up and I’m here again.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
