CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE  Amid growing evidence that repeated concussions and blows to the head can have long-term, possibly fatal outcomes, local concussion experts are working to better inform people about head injuries.

.

Specialists at Cape Regional Medical Centers Concussion Center are gearing up for fall sports season injuries, typically to student athletes although adults and seniors can have such injuries all year.

.

More awareness about head injuries is needed.

.

Theres a misconception that concussions are strictly due to sports injuries, but we have a program and treatments that serve kids and adults who get concussions just as much from falls and car accidents, too, said A.J. Weiss, concussion center rehabilitation and treatment manager.

.

Gov. Chris Christie earlier this year signed a law designating the third Thursday of September as Concussion Awareness Day in New Jersey. Legislators said they hoped awareness would lead to education about the serious consequences of concussions, treatment and resources.

.

Of the 2.8 million traumatic brain injury-related emergency department visits and hospitalizations in 2013, most were concussions, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and about 300,000 children who were treated in a single year for a concussion or brain injury got hurt while playing sports or in recreation.

.

Scientists have explored more about concussions in recent years, especially as high rates of head injuries are found in sports such as football. Researchers have looked into how repeated head injuries and concussions could lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease.

.

A report published in July in the Journal of the American Medical Association by Dr. Ann McKee, chief neurologist of VA Boston Healthcare System and director of the CTE Center at Boston University, said 110 of 111 brains of deceased National Football League players were found to have CTE.

.

Part of what we do for education is informing people about second impact syndrome, which can be fatal, Weiss said. It happens when someone sustains a second concussion before the first one heals, and that could lead to weeks or months of therapy, permanent damage, or worst case, death.

.

Concussion symptoms include dizziness, headache, vision trouble, sometimes brief unconsciousness, fatigue, poor balance, sensitivity to light, vomiting and disorientation, among others.

important to pay attention to accessibility in your Android

can be less optimal if the user is visually impaired…”

How to Find More Usability Problems with Fewer Users

By David Travis.

why this is a myth helps us generate ideas to help us increase the
number of problems we find in a usability test.”

“I teach at General Assembly in Seattle as a Part Time UX Instructor.

that could be used by using free collaborative tools. So I created my
own. …”

Does Accessibility Slow Down the Development Process?

By Andrea Fercia.

“I’ve been focusing on web accessibility for a few years now. One of
the complaints I’ve often heard from business owners and managers is
that implementing accessibility is hard and slows down the development
process. For this reason, sometimes accessibility gets postponed or
set aside in the erroneous belief that’s something that can be ‘added’
later. Here, I’d like to share my thoughts on why I think the first
statement is misleading. I’ll also discuss why postponing
accessibility is an ineffective process that can add a considerable
amount of time to your development process.”

Rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey:

Before discussing the challenges of rebuilding, there is very good news for America from Harvey.

.

The outpouring of volunteer assistance (think Cajun Navy) is truly an outstanding example of a citizenry united in selfless acts of rescue neighbors helping neighbors in crisis. This outreach by thousands of Americans to other Americans stands in stark contrast to the recent news of hateful acts perpetuated by an isolated (but highly publicized) few.

.

The rescue operations in Houston, and nearby areas, have crossed racial, ethnic, religious and gender boundaries, very clearly demonstrating that Americans have great concern for all of their fellow citizens. This outpouring of humanity is a clarion call for all Americans to reaffirm that Americas rich diversity is the strength of our nation.

.

snip

.

With all the political interest in our national infrastructure, the rebuilding of Southeast Texas can serve as a first, shining example of how that national project can be made to work  and made to work directly for those citizens sorely in need of restoration of their everyday lives. Will the White House and Congress agree now on an infrastructure project, and move fast enough to help victims of Harvey rebuild, or will we have more red-tape and political posturing?

.

snip

.

Let us speculate that, in a rare show of consensus, even unity, the combined efforts of the president, Congress and the pertinent federal agencies can be marshaled to kick off one of the greatest public-service and civil-engineering feats ever attempted, in full cooperation with state and local authorities  with the showcase for the effort being the precincts surrounding Corpus Christi, Houston and countless other affected towns and cities near the Gulf Coast.

.

Flexibility in legislation at the state level will be needed to supplement federal assistance. Famously anti-tax Texans may need to explore a method to raise discreet taxes and fees that expire against hard deadlines, with no renewal mechanism, with the proceeds dedicated solely to the relief and rebuilding effort.

.

Of course, there is an upside to the rebuilding, especially in that it will invigorate the private sector and create jobs for those in desperate need. Many municipal and commercial buildings have been impacted and will need materials to rebuild. Damaged infrastructure will need repair and replacement, including roads, highways, railways, subways, ports, pipelines, generators, and sewer systems. This will create more demand for materials, supplies and skilled workers, ultimately benefiting the tax-base.

The Wrath of Hurricane Harvey

CBS News

September 3, 2017, 9:10 AM

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-wrath-of-hurricane-harvey/

.

.

Nine days after Hurricane Harvey came ashore, we’re still struggling to fully comprehend its aftermath. At least 45 people are confirmed dead as of this morning, while the economic toll is estimated in the tens of billions. Mark Strassmann has been there through it all:

.

Harvey hit Texas with Old Testament wrath — a deluge along the state’s Gulf Coast that dumped more than four feet of rain in four days.

.

Watery misery kept rising in Harris County, which includes Houston. By mid-week, 30 percent of the county — 450 square miles — was under water. One man, who dove out of his truck as it became swamped, told Strassmann, “I thought it was just a couple of feet, you know? I didn’t think it was that deep until it was too late. I couldn’t do nothing about it.”

.

Houston was in over its head. Rescues became a daily, even hourly drama. “The current was getting high, we had to bust a window to get out,” said resident Gillis Layho.

.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner had decided against evacuating residents in America’s fourth largest city. “You cannot evacuate 6.5 million people within two days,” he said. “You can not; that would be chaotic. We would be putting people more in harm’s way.”

.

In one of America’s most flood-prone major cities, relentless rains swamped neighborhoods and highways. A dangerous water world trapped tens of thousands of residents. Life-and-death 911 calls scaled beyond the capacity of first responders.

.

County Judge Ed Emmett asked for volunteers to come forward with boats and high-water vehicles. A civilian navy responded, and neighbor rescued neighbor. Harvey became an all-hands-on-deck moment.

.

One volunteer said, “If this was my family, I hope somebody would come for them.”

.

“We knew we had a lot of people with boats who wanted to help,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo. “They had the courage, the integrity, and the intestinal fortitude. As a result of them wanting to get in the water and get in the boats, I know for a fact that a lot of people lived because of them.

.

Harvey’s new flood became evacuees. Houston’s convention center became its major shelter. Nearly 10,000 people poured in, doubling its original capacity.

Before discussing the challenges of rebuilding, there is very good news for America from Harvey.

.

The outpouring of volunteer assistance (think Cajun Navy) is truly an outstanding example of a citizenry united in selfless acts of rescue neighbors helping neighbors in crisis. This outreach by thousands of Americans to other Americans stands in stark contrast to the recent news of hateful acts perpetuated by an isolated (but highly publicized) few.

.

The rescue operations in Houston, and nearby areas, have crossed racial, ethnic, religious and gender boundaries, very clearly demonstrating that Americans have great concern for all of their fellow citizens. This outpouring of humanity is a clarion call for all Americans to reaffirm that Americas rich diversity is the strength of our nation.

.

snip

.

With all the political interest in our national infrastructure, the rebuilding of Southeast Texas can serve as a first, shining example of how that national project can be made to work  and made to work directly for those citizens sorely in need of restoration of their everyday lives. Will the White House and Congress agree now on an infrastructure project, and move fast enough to help victims of Harvey rebuild, or will we have more red-tape and political posturing?

.

snip

.

Let us speculate that, in a rare show of consensus, even unity, the combined efforts of the president, Congress and the pertinent federal agencies can be marshaled to kick off one of the greatest public-service and civil-engineering feats ever attempted, in full cooperation with state and local authorities  with the showcase for the effort being the precincts surrounding Corpus Christi, Houston and countless other affected towns and cities near the Gulf Coast.

.

Flexibility in legislation at the state level will be needed to supplement federal assistance. Famously anti-tax Texans may need to explore a method to raise discreet taxes and fees that expire against hard deadlines, with no renewal mechanism, with the proceeds dedicated solely to the relief and rebuilding effort.

.

Of course, there is an upside to the rebuilding, especially in that it will invigorate the private sector and create jobs for those in desperate need. Many municipal and commercial buildings have been impacted and will need materials to rebuild. Damaged infrastructure will need repair and replacement, including roads, highways, railways, subways, ports, pipelines, generators, and sewer systems. This will create more demand for materials, supplies and skilled workers, ultimately benefiting the tax-base.

The Wrath of Hurricane Harvey

CBS News

September 3, 2017, 9:10 AM

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-wrath-of-hurricane-harvey/

.

.

Nine days after Hurricane Harvey came ashore, we’re still struggling to fully comprehend its aftermath. At least 45 people are confirmed dead as of this morning, while the economic toll is estimated in the tens of billions. Mark Strassmann has been there through it all:

.

Harvey hit Texas with Old Testament wrath — a deluge along the state’s Gulf Coast that dumped more than four feet of rain in four days.

.

Watery misery kept rising in Harris County, which includes Houston. By mid-week, 30 percent of the county — 450 square miles — was under water. One man, who dove out of his truck as it became swamped, told Strassmann, “I thought it was just a couple of feet, you know? I didn’t think it was that deep until it was too late. I couldn’t do nothing about it.”

.

Houston was in over its head. Rescues became a daily, even hourly drama. “The current was getting high, we had to bust a window to get out,” said resident Gillis Layho.

.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner had decided against evacuating residents in America’s fourth largest city. “You cannot evacuate 6.5 million people within two days,” he said. “You can not; that would be chaotic. We would be putting people more in harm’s way.”

.

In one of America’s most flood-prone major cities, relentless rains swamped neighborhoods and highways. A dangerous water world trapped tens of thousands of residents. Life-and-death 911 calls scaled beyond the capacity of first responders.

.

County Judge Ed Emmett asked for volunteers to come forward with boats and high-water vehicles. A civilian navy responded, and neighbor rescued neighbor. Harvey became an all-hands-on-deck moment.

.

One volunteer said, “If this was my family, I hope somebody would come for them.”

.

“We knew we had a lot of people with boats who wanted to help,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo. “They had the courage, the integrity, and the intestinal fortitude. As a result of them wanting to get in the water and get in the boats, I know for a fact that a lot of people lived because of them.

.

Harvey’s new flood became evacuees. Houston’s convention center became its major shelter. Nearly 10,000 people poured in, doubling its original capacity.

Path of Destruction: What Hurricane Harvey Left in its Wake

Story by Mallory Simon, CNN

From Corpus Christi to Houston, Texas (CNN)It begins with a couple of shingles in the road, a power line down here or there. The caravan of utility workers is a sign that things are getting worse. And then, at the Pioneer Beach Resort in Port Aransas it becomes clear that Hurricane Harvey came through with a vengeance.

.

RVs are lying on their sides, windows blown out. Debris is everywhere. Any trailer that wasn’t moved before the storm was destroyed, says Buddy Seeds, an owner there.

.

Riding a golf cart through the park, he shows a newly built rental cabin that’s been lifted off its foundation and flung at least 300 yards away.
“That one floated all the way to the dunes,” he says, pointing at the unit. The deck is all that remains. Mangled metal and snapped wood are strewn across the park, which is busy again, but with people hauling away ruined homes, or checking what can be saved. One man hangs sopping wet clothes on a line next to his damaged home. He hopes they are salvageable.

.

Seeds and other owners say the storm’s massive power caught them by surprise. About 4 feet of storm surge flooded the area from the nearby bay, flinging every trailer onto its side.

.

“The wind is what started the ball rolling … and then the water finished them off,” Seeds says.

.

A week after Hurricane Harvey slammed into the coast near Corpus Christi, Texas, and then dumped foot after foot of rain on Houston and its neighbors, we crisscrossed the 200 miles between the two cities to witness what the storm had left behind.

.

For some communities, it was the wind that did the damage. For others, it was the flooding from the massive rains. And for some, who had seemed to dodge both those bullets, it was a surprise late attack from rivers overflowing with the floodwaters heading south from Houston trying to find their way to the Gulf of Mexico.

VERONA  When Samantha Willcutt was an undergrad student at Mississippi State University, she waited tables at an upscale restaurant called The Veranda, eventually working her way up to manager.

.

She saw how really good food made people happy, but she wanted a more intimate setting, so after graduation, she went to work for Zoes Kitchen, which specialized in made-from-scratch, fresh, healthy Mediterranean-type fare.

.

I traveled around the country, opening new restaurants and managing them for a while, said Willcutt, 37. I was reading about nutrition all the time and what food was doing to my body and other peoples bodies. I wanted to push myself to learn more.

.

So, after 10 years in the restaurant business, Willcutt headed back to MSU and earned a masters degree in nutrition in 2016.

.

While I was getting my masters, I did a graduate assistantship in the Office of Nutrition Education at MSU Extension, she said. It was a nice combination of learning about nutrition and helping people. Thats when I said, Yep, this is for me.

.

In October 2016, Willcutt became one of three regional dietitians Extension hired to help in the fight against obesity and chronic disease in Mississippi.

.

The state has the second highest adult obesity rate in the nation, according to “The State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America” released in August 2017. Mississippi’s adult obesity rate is currently 37.3 percent, up from 23.7 percent in 2000 and from 15 percent in 1990.

.

Willcutt oversees the northeast region of the state. Two others came on board this summer: Kaitlin DeWitt oversees the southeast region and Juaqula Madkin manages the southwest region. The northwest position hasnt been filled yet.

.

Through the Office of Nutrition Education, they oversee Extensions Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education, or SNAP-Ed. They work with SNAP-Ed nutrition educators in county offices to help coordinate efforts to teach low-resource families ways to improve their diets, increase physical activity and manage their food resources.

.

When Sylvia Byrd was hired as the director in 2015, she brought a new attitude to the SNAP-Ed program, said Willcutt, a Starkville native. She didnt just want us focused on education. She wanted to expand the efforts and implemented PSE  policy, systems and environment  all moving parts that work together. Policy influences the system, which changes the environment.
