"We are creating these minicamp right in neighborhoods where children live and go to school, so that they are easily accessible to children. The addition of lights in every minicamp, thanks to our partnership with Musco Lighting, allow more children and families can play, especially in the darkest winter months. This means that even more children can benefit from all our gaming. "

Depending on the quality of the proposals received, the foundation plans to award 80 percent of funding to local get-out-the-count (GOTC) efforts and 20 percent of funding to statewide coordination. The foundation seeks to award multiple grants to local GOTC efforts, for which each proposal can range from $5,000 – $75,000.

Hispanic adults are twice as likely than non - Hispanics to feel frequent or constant stress related to mass shootings white

Washington, Aug. 15, 2019 - A large majority of adults in the United States feels stress caused by the massacres with firearms, and one-third of adults say they fear mass shootings them prevented from attending certain places and events, according to a new survey on stress and gun massacres conducted by the American Psychological Association (American Psychological Association, APA).


"It is clear that the massacres firearms are causing damage to our mental health, and should concern in particular that are affecting the daily lives of many of us," said Arthur C. Evans Jr., PhD, executive director of APA. "The more events of this type occur in places that concur frequently, the greater the impact on mental health. There is no need to directly experience these events to feel affected. Just hearing that occurred may involve an emotional impact, and this can have a negative impact on our mental and physical health. "

To better understand the impact of the shootings on stress and health in the aftermath of the recent and tragic massacres of El Paso and Dayton, APA commissioned nationally representative survey. It was conducted online by The Harris Poll between 8 and 12 August, and was attended by 2,017 adults aged 18 and over residing in the United States.

The current survey found that more than three quarters of adults (79%) in the United States say they feel stress as a result of the possibility of a mass shooting. In addition, many adults report that are changing behavior as a result of fear of massacres with firearms. Also, nearly one in three adults (32%) feel that they can not go anywhere without worrying about being victims of a shooting; while about the same percentage (33%) say that fear prevents them from attending certain places and events. In addition, about a quarter (24%) of adults reported changes in their lives because of fear of shootings.

Cundo asked which sites will cause stress related to the possibility that a slaughter occurs, the most common responses of adults included public events (53%), shopping (50%), schools or universities (42%) or cinemas (38%), while only one in five (21%) ensures that you never feel stress as a result of the possibility of a gunfight.

"The massacres with guns are a problem of public health, and we need to adopt a comprehensive public health approach to understand and devise lasting political solutions," added Evans. "It is important that people and legislators realize that it is not an insoluble problem, but something whose possibility of change is in our hands".

Hispanic adults (32%) are more likely than non-Hispanic white adults (15%) to say they feel stress related to the possibility of shooting frequently or constantly. Hispanic adults and African Americans are also more likely than non-Hispanics to ignore how to cope with stress they feel as a result of massacres with firearms (44% of Hispanic adults and 43% of African Americans vs. 30% of white adults white) adults. Meanwhile, adults blacks are more likely to feel that they or someone they know will be victims of a mass shooting (60% compared with 41% of white adults and 50% of Hispanic adults ).

Women say they feel stressed more often than men about the possibility of a shoot (85% vs. 71%) and parents of children under 18 are almost twice as likely than those without children of those ages say they feel stress frequently or constantly to the possibility of a slaughter with firearms (28% vs.16%). In addition, 62% of parents say "live in fear that their children may be victims of a mass shooting."

But is that nation has failed to break down barriers that affect children of color.

Data Book 2019 KIDS COUNT ® will be available on June 17 in  https://www.aecf.org/

"All 74 million children in our increasingly diverse country have unlimited potential, and we have data, knowledge and evidence to create policies that will help them achieve it.," Said president and CEO of the Foundation Casey, Lisa Hamilton.

*Almost one in six American children grew up in poverty. 2017 was the first year since 2010 that saw an increase in the number of uninsured children. State rankings: New Hampshire and Massachusetts are again in first and second place.
*South and west contain the 18 states with the lowest rating.


The 2019 Data Book explores the growth in child population of America since 1990.

*US child population It increased from 64.2 to 73.7 million between 1990 and 2017. Texas, Florida and California accounted for half of the total growth of the nation.
*The percentage of American children who were Latinos more than doubled from 12 to 26 percent.

From 1990 to 2017, 38 states and the District of Columbia saw double the percentage of children from immigrant families; 12 had seen those percentages quadrupled.

Hotlines can be drawn between areas of great improvement in the welfare and policies that have supported these successes. Policymakers must take additional steps to help all children thrive.

By Fútbol de Puerto Rico, National Team Players of PR & Noticias Sur P.R.

April 4, 2019 - The departure of Amado Guevara from the technical direction means that we are going for the seventh coach of the men's team in just 3 years.

Related to his abrupt departure, we think it is fair to express the feelings of his associates.

It should be noted that the previous 6 dismissed technical directors were not iconic soccer figures and did not have the same expressions of support as shown here.


Now it must be the goal of the "Federación Puertorriqueña de Fútbol", its reinstatement, before it's too late.

Lucía Aragón (Amado's wife): Coach Amado leaves with the gratitude and recognition of those he directed, not with the atrocities and lies that @ESPN_JorgeRamos said. Mission accomplished @ pereyraespn. I remind you that he only coached four (4) games. PR has never gone to Gold Cup, World Cup etc.

Cody Laurendi: Lucia you are too kind! It is my honor to play for not only the national team but for @AmadoGuevara20. He is someone who exemplies professionalism and am forever grateful for!

Emmanuel D’Andrea: He did not want to comment on the decision of the dismissals of Guevara and Bertani, but he did want to thank "the effort and the professional contribution they provided".

Joshua Javier Calderón: Thanks to @ AmadoGuevara20 and @juanbfutbol (Juan Bertani) for all their sacrifice and work they have done for our team. I wish the best to these great coaches.


Sidney Rivera‏: Reflecting on yesterday, I’m really happy and proud to have made my international debut for Puerto Rico. The result wasn’t what we had worked for, but this is part of football. I want to thank profe @AmadoGuevara20 & @juanfutbol (Juan Bertani), for the opportunity, their work & their confidence in me.

Juan Bertani: Thank you... It has been an honor. When asked about the island of charm, I will talk about my players ...

According to one of the videos of Amado Guevara, broadcasted on YouTube ... "The legends are written in the light of the full moon"... It is the duty of all of us, to insist that the howl of "El Lobo" be heard once again in Puerto Rico, for the benefit of our football.

If every household get rid of opioid analgesics once they are no longer medically necessary for the purpose for which they were prescribed, this would have a major impact on the crisis of opioid suffering families and communities in the United States. "

Opioids are potent prescription drugs to reduce pain can help patients control successfully, provided they are prescribed for proper condition and used properly.

The unit also recently updated information about the disposal of opioid prescription unused on your website, Disposal of unused drugs: all you need to know , which can help people determine what the best disposal option according to your situation.


"Too many Americans, both teens and adults, access to opioids for the first time to find them in the medicine cabinets of their parents, relatives and friends. There are millions of pills opioid unused that should not be available or on hand in our homes" said Dr. Douglas Throckmorton, MD, deputy director of programs control Center Drug evaluation and Research, FDA. "Our campaign 'Eliminate the risk' serves both to educate Americans about this issue as to provide easy steps to follow so they can immediately eliminate opioid prescription from their homes and avoid contributing inadvertently to the risk that a friend or a loved one use these drugs improperly or abused.

Because it must pay attention to signing your tax preparer

Tax preparers who do not sign tax returns are one of the worst problems during the last minute rush

Sacramento, California, April 9, 2019 - It happens every tax season. Preparers unreliable taxes set up tables in malls or rent office space from February to April. Produce countless tax returns, often touting statements "big and fast" taxes.


"We call them ghost tax preparers because they disappear after tax season. Never stay in one place or sign tax returns, and this makes it difficult to find them, " said Susie DiMaggio, president of the board of the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) , a non-profit organization ordered by the state that administers the registration of more than 40,000 unlicensed tax preparers.

By law it requires that tax preparers sign (typed or handwritten) statements of federal and state taxes preparing as proof that they have retained their services - a detail that preparers ghost tax expect taxpayers overlook .

"It seems small, but it is one of the most important details," said Esperanza Escobedo, CRTP and member of the board of CTEC. "The validity of your tax return actually depends on your signature."

This is how Phantom tax preparers work. Print tax returns for clients, then told you to sign and send by mail. What many taxpayers fail to note is that, instead of a name, the tax return says "autopreparada". For electronically filed tax returns, his name has also been omitted.

Other typical fraud include ...

*The coach hits a commercial label on the tax return rather than sign with your name. Customers receive the copy you "tag" to make it appear as if it has been "signed", however, often a blank copy without a commercial label is presented.
*The coach said that "forgot" to sign the tax return and promises to sign it after receiving payment.

California taxpayers should always verify that the tax preparer is legally qualified. State law requires that anyone who comes to prepare tax returns have to be an attorney , certified public accountant (CPA), tax preparer registered with the CTC (CRTP) or enrolled agent (EA) .

Taxpayers may denounce tax preparers ghost ctec.or g . CTEC is a nonprofit organization established in 1997 by the California State Legislature to protect taxpayers from fraud and incompetent tax preparers.

Energy WRB: What will it take to develop more renewable energy in the Caribbean?

By PRNewswire-Hispanic PR Wire
By Denise Ruggiero, 813-251-3737, druggiero@wrbenterprises.com

Tampa, Florida, March 13, 2019 - With the abundance of clean energy resources in the Caribbean - sun, wind, water and geothermal - is a more natural environment for renewable energy generation . So why do not more renewable energy is produced in the Caribbean, and why no more projects in development?

With over three decades of experience developing renewable energy projects and operating utilities, Energy WRB can address some of the challenges that prevent increased generation of renewable energy in the Caribbean.


Contain costs - Most Caribbean island nations lack the scale to absorb the high costs and complexities of developing relatively small installations for renewable energy if compared with those of larger and more developed countries. Populations, economies and a relatively smaller demand for energy, less kilowatt hours are produced to amortize the anticipated investment costs effectively in terms of costs. However, as prices for renewable energy equipment continue to decline and technologies advance, the options of solar, wind and geothermal are increasingly viable and economical solutions for diversified energy portfolios.

Leveling the learning curve - Government leaders with a long - term stable and implementation plans for increased renewable energy vision attract the best opportunities for project development. By working collaboratively, the utilities, government, regulators and developers can help level the learning curve for initial projects.

Understand that the earth is precious - Ensure appropriate land for the location of the project poses significant challenges. There is great pride in the ownership of land, with plots that have been transferred from generation to generation. In addition, there is a history of informal land transactions, leading to unclear property titles. Consequently, these problems can lead to resistance in local landowners against land transactions and long - term leases.


Clarifying investment requirements - Banks, investors and multilateral organizations have mandates, terms, titles and agreements that can be misinterpreted in negotiations with governments, utilities and regulators. It must be clearly defined policies and processes to avoid misinterpretations of the terms of the projects.

Develop conditions for a sustainable future - Develop renewable systems requires reliable and accessible investment audits to avoid price increases electricity. It is a long - term strategy that requires cooperation between stable government policies, companies flexible utilities, competent regulatory bodies responsible investors and credible development partners to design, develop and deliver renewable energy projects as promised.

WRB Energy develops renewable energy projects to help stabilize electricity prices, reduce dependence on imported fuels and boosting economic growth in Latin America and the Caribbean. Visit  https://wrbenergy.com/ and https://wrbenergy.com/content-solar-jamaicas-first-utility-scale-solar-plant/.

Among the measures that would authorize S.726:

The FDA would have the proper authority to order cosmetics and personal care products that jeopardize consumer safety, for example, a contaminated product is removed; It would require companies to file timely reports on adverse events, FDA would be required to assess the safety of at least five chemicals used in cosmetics and personal care products annually, and It would require companies to include information about ingredients and warnings about products for sale online.  The requirements of the law have no impact on the budget and program funds new rates paid by companies of cosmetics and personal care products.

The lifestyle choices can help patients with glaucoma to preserve the view

By PR Newswire-Hispanic PR Wire

The American Academy of Ophthalmology provides recommendations on how people can take control of their health, regardless of medication and surgery

San Francisco, Jan. 22, 2019 / PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE / - Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and affects approximately 3 million people in the United States. Since the early stage of the disease there are no symptoms, about half of those affected do not know they have it. When glaucoma causes vision loss, it can not be recovered. During January Awareness Month Glaucoma, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (American Academy of Ophthalmology) reminds society that early detection and treatment, and some lifestyle choices can help protect vision.

Glaucoma damages the optic nerve, which transmits visual information from the retina to the brain. Usually, the disease progresses slowly and gradually destroys peripheral vision. Because people are not aware of the early loss of peripheral vision, a patient may lose most of it before you even know you have glaucoma.

Therefore, the Academy recommends that everyone undergo an eye exam full 40 years. This test allows the ophthalmologists-doctors specializing in eye care and eye surgically thoroughly review, including the optic nerve for signs of damage and other problems that can affect vision. Among those most at risk of developing glaucoma include the following:

People over 40 years.
People of African, Asian or Hispanic descent.
The people that identified them high eye pressure for an eye exam.
People with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
People who have experienced trauma or eye injury.
People whose cornea is thin in the middle.
People who have health problems such as diabetes, migraines, high blood pressure or poor blood circulation or other health problems that affect the entire body.

Proper treatment of glaucoma depends on the particular type and severity of the disease. Usually, the initial treatment consists of ophthalmic eye drops or laser treatments. These techniques are effective to reduce intraocular pressure reducing amount of fluid in the eye, and to increase the fluid drainage from the eye.

Apart from the drugs and surgery, several recent studies suggest that lifestyle choices can also help minimize the risk of vision loss from glaucoma.

Exercise regularly. A study just published in Ophthalmology, the journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, showed that people who are physically active can slow vision loss from glaucoma.

Medite. A new study published last month in the Journal showed that a plan Glaucoma relaxation with meditation can reduce eye pressure in patients with glaucoma and improve quality of life by reducing stress hormones like cortisol.

Do not use the CBD as a remedy "natural" for glaucoma. The CBD, or cannabidiol, is not psychotropic cannabis and hemp component, and touted as a magic remedy that cures everything. A study published last month in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science shows that actually increased eye pressure in mice.


Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, especially vegetables. One study showed that people who ate more vegetables had a risk between 20 and 30% lower for glaucoma. Why? Nitrates of vegetables can be converted to nitric oxide, which can improve blood flow and help regulate the pressure inside the eye.

Do not smoke. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of glaucoma and has an overall negative effect on eye health.

Maintain a healthy body weight. People with body mass index (BMI) higher with increased risk of diabetes, and diabetes puts people at risk for glaucoma. Having a body mass index too low also linked with increased risk of glaucoma.

"Patients often surprised when their ophthalmologist tells them they have glaucoma, because they have no symptoms," said Dianna Seldomridge, MD, clinic spokeswoman American Academy of Ophthalmology. "Therefore it is very important to have an eye test regularly for symptoms of disease that you do not see. The good news is that innovative treatments and surgical techniques today are better than ever."

Between 1992 and 2016, excessive exposure to environmental heat killed 783 American workers and injured more than 69,000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Agricultural workers are particularly vulnerable because they are often poor and are afraid to take breaks to drink water and cool off in the shade due to them.

Heat helps protect workers with an Apple Watch app that alerts them about weather conditions and when hydrated and take breaks as required by law. It allows workers to receive notifications educational videos about what to wear and what to eat and drink to prepare for their turn in the fields. The application also functions as a 911 hotline for workers who need medical care in the camps often sections.

An app to be piloted in the hot agricultural fields of California that protects the lives of farm workers with a wearable watch application that provides immediate heat warnings, health notification and proactive heat stress education. My mission is to change “work or health to work AND health.”

This application is the first project of the American Legacy Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 organization founded by Florez to empower women to address issues of social justice in Latino communities. In 2017, Florez was named a national scholar HERLead, allowing access to initial funding for videos in Spanish and English. Florez also worked with a team of developers student at the School of Engineering of the USC Viterbi to encode the original application of the concept.

Florez spent his childhood in Shafter, California, a small farming community in the Central Valley. The freshman at USC descends farmworker, and her great-grandmother died of a disease caused by heat.


"Being able to create heat is significant for me and my family. I have always heard of the dangers in the fields of my elders, and my great-grandmother sacrificed his life for his work. I want to make sure other families do not have to suffer the pain and workers do not have to sacrifice their health for their work, "Florez said.

Florez has raised more than $ 60,000 for releasing heat, and the funds raised were used to partner with FocusMotion to develop a single qualified methodology to monitor the health and activity of the farm worker, creating an efficient solution that benefits both farmers and workers . Heat has been tested on three farms in the Central Valley of California.

At the age of 12, Jacob knew what he had to do. In the course of the years, her parents had discussed many times the safety of firearms. Jacob stopped, he left the gun, and ran to the picnic tables to tell their parents.

"That's exactly what they should do if they find a gun children , " said Kathleen Eubanks-Meng, DO, medical family in Kansas City. "As parents, we can protect our children at home, but you also have to make sure they are safe and sound wherever you are - in a park, in a friend 's house or elsewhere".

Research has found that firearms injuries are the third leading cause of death among young people aged 17 years and younger. Security of firearms at home -Keep the firearm and ammunition in separate places and closed with key- is the most important safety measure parents can take. But teach children how to respond when they see a gun is also necessary, according to Eubanks-Meng.

"Almost one in three families with children under 12 have a gun in the house , " he said. "Because of this, while ensuring that their own firearms are stored safely out of reach of your children, we recommend that parents discuss in advance with people from other houses that your child will be visiting to see if they have guns fire. This includes the homes of friends, relatives and even the babysitter ".

Parents may feel uncomfortable asking if there 's a gun in the house and, if so, whether it is locked closed and stored properly. But thus it helps avoid accidents. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analyzed by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence show that between 2012 and 2016, an average of seven children and teens die and 39 are injured by firearms every day . This translates into 2,737 deaths and 14,470 injuries resulting from the use of firearms each year.

"Injuries caused by firearms occur too often among children who do not understand that real guns are not toys need to understand that, of being a firearm, should follow safety rules. Stop, do not touch, move away from place and tell an adult , "Eubanks-Meng said.

By Megan Moriarty, American Academy of Family Physicians, (800) 274-2237, Ext 5223,. Mmoriarty@aafp.org

Leawood, Kansas, September 5, 2018 - Imagine this: Your son is playing a game of football or basketball. When advancing to kick the ball or stop a shot rival team accidentally collides with another player and they both fall to the ground, dazed and a little dazed. Or this: driving home, you crash the car from behind and throws him violently collision forward and backward, and left him with a headache and dizzy.

What these situations have in common? Both can cause a concussion, traumatic brain injury as a result of a shock, a blow or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and the brain quickly move forward and backward.

"Concussions can happen to anyone, for any activity," says Dr. Melinda Dunn, who is a doctor of family in Overland Park, Kansas. "Not to be practicing a sport: it can be a fall or other accident Even if it's a mild concussion, can have serious consequences.".

As a family physician, Dunn sees patients of all ages, from babies and toddlers to teenagers, adults and seniors. Dunn is trained to handle a variety of health problems, including chronic health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, and severe injuries such as concussions.

As students return to school and begin in autumn sports equipment, it is extremely important that parents are aware of the causes and symptoms of a concussion. According to familydoctor.org , more than half of visits to hospital emergency rooms for traumatic brain injuries are children between 5 and 18 years. Although usually hear from those injuries in football news, concussions can occur in almost any sport or activity.


It is important to know what to look for after receiving a blow to the head to take measures to prevent even greater damage in the future. Symptoms of a concussion may be headache, trouble concentrating, memory loss, appearance of lightheadedness, confusion, dizziness or balance problems, blurred vision, nausea, sensitivity to light or noise and status changes mood, behavior or sleep. The signals may occur soon after the injury, but some symptoms may not occur until after several hours or even days.

If you suspect that there has been a concussion, see your family doctor. Be prepared to tell what happened and to explain what symptoms are present. If the incident occurred during a sporting event, parents should not let your child return to play until the doctor gives its approval.

When someone has suffered a concussion, the risk of another increases. And a second concussion can be more severe.

"Safety should always be the first priority," says Dunn. "There is no guaranteed way to prevent a concussion, but can reduce the risk by using protective equipment that fit well, like a helmet, and always wearing a seat belt."

The FDA recommends safety this fall juices

By PR Newswire-Hispanic PR Wire

Silver Spring, Maryland, September 5, 2018 - Nothing better describes the fall as driving through the countryside or taking cider or fresh juice. Unfortunately, serious outbreaks of foodborne illness, often called "food poisoning", have been linked to the consumption of cider and fruit juices and vegetables unpasteurized or otherwise processed to remove harmful germs that cause disease. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States reminds consumers to read labels carefully before buying and consuming juice and cider products.


Fruit juices and vegetables provide important nutrients, but consuming juices that have not been processed may pose risks to your health and your family. When juices or vegetables freshly squeezed as much raw, the germs that cause disease products can end up contaminating their juice or cider are consumed. Unless the product has been processed to destroy any germs that cause illness, the juice could be contaminated. While the immune system of most people can combat the effects of foodborne illness, children, the elderly, pregnant women and people with weakened immune system (such as patients transplantation and individuals HIV / AIDS, cancer or diabetes) are likely to attract serious illness or even death by eating raw juices.

Most juices sold in the United States are pasteurized (heat processed) to kill germs that cause disease. The juice may also be subjected to non-thermal processes for the same purpose. However, some grocery stores, health food stores, cider, farmers' markets and local juices sold packaged juices that are prepared at the same time and have not been pasteurized or otherwise processed so that their safety is guaranteed . These unprocessed products must be kept refrigerated and include the following warning on its label:

WARNING: This product has not been pasteurized and therefore may contain harmful bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems

However, the FDA does not require warning labels on these juices or ciders freshly squeezed and sold by the glass, such as in apple orchards, farm markets, roadside stalls and establishments juices.

Follow these simple steps to prevent illness when buying juices:

Look for the warning label to avoid buying raw juices. You can find the unpasteurized products or otherwise processed in the refrigerated section of the supermarket, in the refrigerators of frozen or refrigerated containers are not as containers, bottles or cans of juice. Unprocessed juice is usually found in the refrigerated section of grocery stores.



If you are not sure if the label is not clear, or if the juice or cider is sold in glasses, do not hesitate to ask if a juice product has been processed.

Foodborne diseases: Know the symptoms

Consumption of food contaminated with germs that cause disease usually causes discomfort between 1 and 3 days after eating the contaminated food. However, the discomfort may arise in 20 minutes or up to 6 weeks. Symptoms of food poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and like flu (such as fever, head and body dollar pain) symptoms. If you think you or a member of your family suffers food poisoning, call your health care provider immediately.

Washington, July 5, 2018  - Professionals Latino health care are outraged by the zero tolerance policy administration Trump, with respect to refugees fleeing persecution and other immigrants - which has 2,000 separate children from their parents on the Mexico-United States border. Our organization's priorities are to improve the health and well-being of Latinos, and this federal immigration policy will lead to a worsening of health disparities in our communities.

Medical research shows that children do not have the ability to cope with an overwhelming and devastating environment that causes immense stress levels in the short term, and mental and physical long-term illnesses. Pathways deregulated healthy stress of children affected lead to serious mental illness in the future such as depression, suicide and schizophrenia, decreased immune protection causing cancers and cardiovascular diseases and other diseases, and cognitive abilities reduced.

In some cases, the service Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of the Department of Homeland Security United States deports parents before reuniting them with their children. Moreover, we believe that our broken immigration policy will not deter other immigrants coming to the United States in search of a better life.

We believe that the United States must comply with international human rights law created after World War II that says that separating parents and children is prohibitive. We ask Congress to focus on comprehensive migration policies including reducing the backlog in immigration applications, shorten the legal review process for refugees and others at the border, increase the number of judges and lawyers federal immigration and related workforce, and protect dreamers with a new path to citizenship. We ask policies that will improve the quality of life of all Americans.

Leawood, Kansas, July 2, 2018 - It starts with a small sneeze, or perhaps a slight headache. The climate is changing and, after all, you suffer from allergies. Surely you are not getting sick. However, before you know it, you're in bed with body aches as strong as if he had gone over a truck. And it happened so fast. Fever and the last thing you want to do is eat.

This is not change fall season, and pollen: has the flu, something that could have been avoided.

"The best way to fight the flu is with a flu shot before getting sick," said Michael Munger, MD, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians (American Academy of Family Physicians). "Remember, the flu is not contracted the flu vaccine, and is one of the easiest ways to keep you and your family healthy."

The flu vaccine is generally available each fall before flu reaches its peak, which usually occurs between December and February. But the flu season can last until May, according to the CDC. Check with your doctor to see when you can get the flu shot. All health care insurers even pay. If you do not get the flu shot at your doctor's office, remember your doctor where he received.

"There are also other preventive measures you can take," said Veronica Anwuri, MD a family doctor practicing in Kansas City, Missouri. "Always wash hands with soap and water, and cough or sneeze top shirt sleeve, and not in the hands; eat well and rest enough".

If your doctor diagnoses flu, antiviral drugs available drugs that, when taken quickly enough after getting sick, can help reduce flu symptoms and shorten the time you are sick. Counter medications that can help include acetaminophen, which can reduce fever and help with body aches. For children, Anwuri not recommend using nasal sprays or decongestants; nor take cough and cold, as there is little evidence that they are effective in treating influenza in children.

Hopefully, it will not come to that: remember that prevention is the key and that the flu vaccine is the best way to keep you and your healthy before the arrival of the flu season family.

Even though there DISH service interruptions routinely used against their diffusive transmission interruptions His 68 since 2010 far exceed those of all other distributors in that period- Univision expected to DISH take seriously our negotiations and its commitment to Hispanic consumers after they told clients this week he wanted to "reach a mutually beneficial agreement" with respect to "high quality content" of Univision.

Instead of fulfilling his promise to its customers, DISH has decided to devalue our programming implausibly offering a fraction of what you pay them to our counterparts in English. We are ready to continue negotiations and accept a short extension to the service in particular is restored because DISH customers are losing our coverage of the presidential elections in Mexico, which many describe as the most important in the history of That country. DISH must do the right thing for his Spanish-speaking audience, accepting restore service and negotiate an agreement in good faith.

Washington, June 27, 2018 - More than 3 million people visit Puerto Rico every year. Many come from the US mainland to visit relatives and friends or to enjoy the flavors of our food, natural beauty and learn about our history and traditions.

Undoubtedly, our island is one of the most biodiverse places worldwide. We have an extraordinary natural beauty, with a variety of fruits, flowers and unique plants that enrich our natural resources. As in other ecosystems, Puerto Rico is also home to insects and invasive species not found elsewhere, including the continental United States.


Unfortunately introduce these invasive species in an alien ecosystem to yours is like opening Pandora's box. Few know that introducing invasive pests that pose a threat to biodiversity. In the United States and Puerto Rico, these pests and diseases cost trillions of dollars each year in damage eradication costs and loss of earnings in trade. This in turn can lead to higher food prices due to reduced harvests.

Although often unintentionally, man collaborates with the movement of pests. Many do not realize that this situation can completely destroy the agricultural industry and natural resources as a result cause the loss of jobs. It also impacts food sustainability of a country. It is therefore important to note that when we travel to other parts of the world and Puerto Rico, the transport certain agricultural products such as fresh flowers, plants, seeds or even handicrafts made of palm leaves, can cause truly devastating effects. However, prevent these damages is very simple, we just follow the rules and policies of the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

It is in our hands to take precautionary measures in order to help protect agriculture, the environment, and forests of Puerto Rico and the United States of these invasive species that can consume and kill many species of trees and crops.


There are also some products that are prohibited to the United States. These are mangoes, citrus leaves, fresh pigeon peas, sweet potatoes, cotton seeds, plants with soil, cactus, etc. When in doubt it is always best to call the local office and check the list of prohibited or restricted products. It is important to note that the same applies to products sent by mail. If you want to make a shipment with fruits, seeds, plants or plant someone in the United States, we urge that you first accessed the website of US Department of Agriculture (USDA for its acronym in English) to find out what is permitted or restricted. They can also call our offices and we will gladly help.

It is very important that we value the natural resources we have. Just as we like to protect the place where we live, we must protect the biodiversity of others. We can only continue to enjoy the places we visited if we decided to do our part to preserve them.

We can all take care of our environment, no matter how small it seems the action we take. So when you see unknown insects or agricultural material signs of damage, they can put their bit and inform USDA APHIS PPQ. This can be done in the section "pests report" on the website of  https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/resources/pests-diseases/hungry-pests/espanol. In other words, USDA needs your help.


Therefore, if your travel plans include a visit to Puerto Rico, the United States Department of Agriculture invites you to joys of adventure and bring back unforgettable memories. The pests can leave. We count on you!

Leawood, Kansas, June 25, 2018 - When the family physician Michael Munger, MD, reaches one of his examining rooms, not always know what to expect. Sees patients from all backgrounds, all ages and all genres. It recently entered the exam room where he found one of his patients, a teenager who call Mitch, sulking in a chair next to her mother. He knows because he's Mitch care since childhood happy without any concern small.

Something happened recently and Mitch mood changed. His grades began to fall, invented excuses not to go to school, and I was not interested in playing lacrosse. Mitch longer felt embarrassed by his size 14 shoes, and now was being harassed because of their acne. In fact, the harassment got so bad I was afraid to report it for fear of reprisals.


Mitch's story is quite common. Harassment (bullying) can happen anywhere and may have different shapes as aggressive and unwanted behavior that includes a real or perceived imbalance of power.

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that last year, 20 percent of young people have been victims of bullying on school property, and 16 percent have been victims of electronic harassment. Verbal and social bullying is the most common, followed by physical harassment and cyberbullying. 70 percent of young people reported that their schools there are students who are bullied.

"The experience of being a victim of bullying can have a lasting and devastating effect on people of all ages, but especially children during the formative years," Munger said, who has a family practice in Overland Park, Kansas, and is the president of the American Academy of Family Physicians. "Parents and children sometimes can not solve a problem by themselves, and well ask for help".


Family physicians can help families identify and address the harmful effects of harassment such as physical injury, anxiety, depression and sleep disorders.

Kathleen Eubanks-Meng, DO, a family doctor in Lee's Summit, Missouri, has cared for high school students with symptoms of depression related to bullying online and in person. He said that harassment often arises from envy rising romances of others, or when girls disparage other girls for their height, weight or body type. He has even seen cases where teachers have been the source of harassment or stalking victims themselves.

"Whether insult someone, spreading rumors or excluding someone by the way, children can be cruel without understanding the harm they are inflicting," Eubanks-Meng said. "My job as a family physician is to advocate for my patients. Sometimes this means meeting with school administrators, coordinate orientation sessions, and develop customized plans that include school systems and home support."


Munger and Eubanks-Meng agree that a team-based approach to curb bullying can produce positive results, but emphasize the need to seek early help and be consistent. In doing so, it sends a message to the harasser that the behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

CPSC urges drivers not to use off - road vehicles and ATVs on roads in a new public service announcement

By PR Newswire-Hispanic PR Wire

Washington, May 23, 2018  - As we approach the weekend Soldiers Memorial Day (Memorial Day, by name) and the season when people go to drive your ATV or ATV (All-Terrain Vehicles or ATVs, by name and acronym), the Safety Commission US Consumer Product (US Consumer Product Safety Commission, CPSC) is launching a new public service announcement to encourage drivers not to use off-road vehicles on the road. Each year, about 650 deaths and about 100,000 injuries associated with ATVs are reported, according to the Annual Report of the CPSC (in English).


"Even as the laws of your county or city permit to drive an ATV on pavimentas road urge drivers to be cautious and not to use their vehicles off-road in such ways," said Ann Marie Buerkle, acting chairwoman of the CPSC . SUVs are not designed to be driven on paved surfaces; collisions with cars and other vehicles traveling the road can be fatal for drivers of an SUV. "

Almost a third (32%) of reported deaths, or at least 770 deaths (over a period of four years from 2010 to 2013 *) were linked to incidents involving an SUV driven on a road or paved parking. It is important that each driver, whatever their age, know the following:


SUVs or ATV vehicles are designed to operate only on unpaved terrain. This includes recreational vehicles (all-terrain vehicles, ATVs, and recreational off-road vehicles, ROVs), SUVs "side by side" offroad motorcycles and other utility vehicles.

ATVs are difficult to control on paved terrain and the risk is that they can tip over.
In paved terrain, off-road vehicles have a higher risk of crashing into cars, trucks or other vehicles.
In many states, it is illegal to drive off-road vehicles on paved roads.
More than 2,400 deaths related to ATVs were reported over a period of four years from 2010 to 2013, deaths occurring in any type of surface, includyendo paved surfaces. An estimated 430,000 injuries associated with ATVs were treated in emergency during this same period.


Besides knowing the dangers of driving on paved surfaces, drivers should always follow the safety tips below to operate an off-road vehicle:

Always wear a helmet and other protective equipment such as eye protection, boots, gloves, long pants and long sleeves.
Never carry more passengers than the number of seats available. Most ATVs are designed for one driver.
Get practical training from a qualified instructor.
Passengers under 16 must only drive models suitable for young off-road vehicles; never ATVs for adults.
