Let’s talk about the secret surgery

No Comments

first_imgTo the Editor:It’s time to talk about what was once known as the ‘secret surgery.’ As a recipient of life-saving ostomy surgery and volunteer with the Bayonne Ostomy Alliance, I am writing in support of Ostomy Awareness Day on October 7.United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) estimates 725,000 to 1 million people are living with an ostomy in the United States. An ostomy is a type of surgery that creates an opening (stoma) in the abdomen allowing for the removal of bodily waste into a pouch outside the body. This life-saving surgery may occur due to birth defects, cancer, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, trauma (such as a military service injury or accident), and other medical conditions.This year’s theme is “Navigate the Journey Together” and meant to recognize ostomy patients are not alone. Resources such as The Bayonne Ostomy Alliance and ostomy nursing specialists are available for those adjusting to a ‘new normal’ life. This year’s champion for the day is Rolf Benirschke, a former NFL placekicker and Pro Bowler with the San Diego Chargers. He excelled on and off the field in life after surgery and was one of the first to speak publically about this misunderstood surgery. Please help us to continue to shatter this silence.Everyone is welcome at meetings of The Bayonne Ostomy Alliance. Please join us at the Bayonne Medical Center, the second Wednesday of every month from 2:30 to 3:45 p.m. in the 2B Conference Room or contact Larry Pilarski at [email protected] LARRY PILARSKIBayonne Ostomy Alliancelast_img read more

Thai company indefinitely postpones planned polyethylene plant in Ohio

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Petrochemical Update:Thailand-based PTT Global Chemical’s long-awaited final investment decision (FID) to build an ethylene-polyethylene complex in Ohio will remain under consideration for an indefinite period.“Due to circumstances beyond our control related to the pandemic, we’re unable to promise a firm timeline” for an FID, the company said in a mid-May email referring to the project to turn shale gas ethane into ethylene to polymerize into 1.5 million tonnes annually of polyethylene.The Bangkok Post had reported as recently as on Feb. 12 that a decision related to the FID was going to be announced by mid-year. It quoted the company’s CEO Kongkrapan Intarajang saying PTTGC was seeking low interest financing for this project as it was a good fit in a strategy to expand overseas revenue.However, an industry expert told Petrochemical Update that conditions needed for such a complex had deteriorated even before Covid-19.“Prior to the pandemic the planned PTTGC project for Ohio faced a cumulative set of troublesome risks,” Tom Sanzillo, director of finance at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, an organization that examines issues related to energy markets. “The pandemic only increased the weak fundamentals and created greater uncertainty about the fate of the project,” Sanzillo told Petrochemical Update on May 25.PTTGC officials have given a number of firm dates for final decision and now they have put the decision off indefinitely, he said. “It would be a very big surprise if this project was revived. The oversupplied market, low prices, increased competition and now an unpredictable demand outlook and uncertain growth path all weigh to the downside,” he added.[Renzo Pipoli]More: Thailand’s PTTGC indefinitely postpones Ohio project amid challenges Thai company indefinitely postpones planned polyethylene plant in Ohiolast_img read more

Staff Picks – February ’14

No Comments

first_imgSPENCER’S PICKTHE GOLDFINCH BY DONNA TARTTBorn in Mississippi, Donna Tartt is a rising star in the pantheon of young American writers. She made a name for herself when she published her first book, Secret History, before she reached 30. Then came Little Friend, which won her the WH Smith Literary Award in 2003. Now, a decade later, out flies The Goldfinch, a fiction finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. This woman is the real deal. Her Dickensian story involves Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New York kid who gets drawn into a criminal underworld, and revolves around his fixation on a real painting by Carel Fabritius from 1654, which Tartt first spotted in Amsterdam years ago and happened to be on display at the Frick Museum in Manhattan when this novel came out. In the book Decker steals the little painting from the Met.Don’t copy that!CHRIS’ PICKOUT AMONG THE STARS BY JOHNNY CASH (COLUMBIA/LEGACY)Rare are those transcendental occasions when new material from one of your favorite artists (and by favorite I mean someone whose life and work has touched yours so deeply that you integrate some of theirs into your own), who have long since passed, is posthumously released. Rarer still is when that new material is not just throwaways and B-sides, but an entirely brand new album of truly great songs. So is the case with Johnny Cash’s Out Among The Stars, slated for release next month. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee in 1981 and 1984 and produced by famed “countrypolitan” architect Billy Sherrill, it contains 12 tracks that had been tucked away in Columbia’s vaults and simply forgotten—only to be discovered by The Man In Black’s son, John Carter Cash, while cataloguing his father’s archives in 2012. The songs include duets with June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings and Nashville’s “A-Team” of musicians at the time. They are tiny, sparkling, moving gems that demand to be cranked at maximum volume so they can travel through your eardrum, ricochet off your heart and join Johnny up there shining, glimmering, radiating out among the stars.RASHED’S PICKBRONX BOMBERSThe ghosts of Yankees past are currently on loan to the intimate Circle in the Square Theatre, where legends such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Thurman Manson and Joe DiMaggio come to life in a witty and heart-warming play centered around the iconic Yogi Berra, whose love of the Yankees is only surpassed by his devotion to his wife Carmen. Bronx Bombers (opening Feb. 6) begins with a tense scene in a Boston hotel room one day after megalomaniac Reggie Jackson’s epic dugout blowup with manager Billy Martin at Fenway Park. The aloof Berra, played brilliantly by Peter Scolari (Bosom Buddies, Newhart), appears rattled and calls a meeting with Munson, Jackson and Martin. The audience is then invited into Berra’s dreams, where his brethren come together to bicker, laugh and inspire. All the while, Berra looks on quietly before his long-simmering emotions pour out in a fiery, impassioned speech. Bombers is replete with Berra’s adorable “Yogisms,” a brilliant feast (featuring hot dogs; what else?), a beautiful love story, and a front-row seat into baseball heaven that reminds us why this is America’s favorite pastime.#TOMOTHY’S PICKJUNIOR JOHNSON’S MIDNIGHT MOONYou’ve got to love a label that says this about itself: “Few family recipes carry a jail sentence. But to Junior Johnson’s family, it was a way of life. With the law on his heels, Junior ran the finest moonshine to the dry rural south.” Each jar of Midnight Moon, distilled from corn at their place in Madison, N.C., is supposedly “hand-filled with real fruit, the way moonshine was meant to be made.” We started with the apple pie flavor—a blend of apple juice and a cinnamon stick—and found it hard to stop. In fact, we may never eat pie again if we can drink it instead from a mason jar. Fortunately we didn’t have to cross state lines to get some of this moonshine (just try a liquor store in Nassau or Suffolk)—and we heard no sirens following us when we took it back home for a little nip just before bedtime.

How to balance saving for retirement with saving for your kids’ college education

No Comments

first_imgParents often find themselves between a rock and a hard place when it comes to doing what’s best for themselves and their children. One financial adviser offers a formula to make it easier.by: Ruth Davis KonigsbergIt’s a uniquely Gen X personal finance dilemma: Should those of us with young children be socking away our savings in 401(k)s and IRAs to make up for Social Security’s predicted shortfall, or in 529s to meet our children’s inevitably gigantic college tuition bills? Ideally, of course, we’d contribute to both—but that would require considerable discretionary income. If you have to chose one over the other, which should you pick?There are two distinct schools of thought on the answer. The first advocates saving for retirement over college because it’s more important to ensure your own financial health. This is sort of an extension of the put-on-your-own-oxygen-mask-first maxim, and it certainly makes some sense: Your kids can always borrow for college, but you can’t really borrow for retirement, with the exception of a reverse home mortgage, which most advisers think is a terrible idea.The flip side of this, however, is that while you can choose when to retire and delay it if necessary, you can’t really delay when your kid goes to college. Moreover, the cost of tuition has been rising at a much faster rate than inflation, another argument for making college savings a priority. Finally, many parents don’t want to saddle their young with an enormous amount of debt when they graduate.According to a recent survey by Sallie Mae and Ipsos, out-of-pocket parental contributions for college, whether from current income or savings, increased in 2014, while borrowing by students and parents actually dropped to the lowest level in five years, perhaps the result of an improved economy and a bull market for stocks. But clearly, parents often find themselves between a rock and a hard place when it comes to doing what’s best for themselves and their children: While 21% of families did not rely on any financial aid or borrowing at all, 7% percent withdrew money from retirement accounts. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Russian meddling casts ‘dark shadow’ over MH17 trial: Prosecutors

No Comments

first_imgDutch prosecutors accused Russia on Tuesday of interfering with the probe into the downing of flight MH17 and casting a “dark shadow” over the trial of four suspects in the disaster.Moscow had tried to track down witnesses in the trial that started on Monday in the Netherlands, leaving some in fear for their lives in case they were identified, prosecutors said.Three Russians and a Ukranian are on trial over the 2014 crash of the Malaysia Airlines jet in rebel-held eastern Ukraine with the loss of all 298 people on board, 196 of them Dutch. “There are clear indications that Russian security services are actively attempting to disrupt efforts to establish the truth behind the shooting down of flight MH17,” prosecutor Thijs Berger told judges.Russian spies had also tried to hack Malaysian and Dutch authorities investigating the crash, he said.”Seen as a whole, this information casts a dark shadow over these proceedings,” Berger said.The trial opened in the absence of the suspects — Russian nationals Igor Girkin, Sergei Dubinsky, Oleg Pulatov and Ukrainian citizen Leonid Kharchenko. Pulatov is the only one represented by a lawyer and he denies all involvement. International investigators say the Boeing 777 was hit by a Russian-made BUK surface-to-air missile, fired from territory held by pro-Moscow rebels battling Kiev. ‘Campaign of disinformation’ Relatives of those who died have repeatedly called for the trial to examine the role of Russia in the crash.”The court has made it crystal clear that the Russian government is staging a campaign of disinformation,” Anton Kotte, a board member of a foundation for MH17 victims, said Tuesday.”And we will have to be prepared for much more distortion of the truth as the case proceeds.” Kotte lost his son, daughter-in-law and grandson.Moscow has repeatedly denied any involvement in the crash of MH17, or in eastern Ukraine generally.Pulatov’s defence lawyer rejected the prosecutor’s “sharp” comments, saying the remarks on witness safety were “not only premature, but highly public”.”I wonder why the Dutch authorities at the same time when it suits them, ask for the cooperation of the Russian Federation,” lawyer Boudewijn van Eijck said.Prosecutors have said Russia was trying to trace potential witnesses in the trial, some of whom will testify anonymously.”The use of Russian security services to discover the identify of witnesses in this investigation is a very real scenario,” Berger added.”Several witnesses in this investigation say that they fear for their lives if their identities were to come to light.”‘Fear of reprisals’ The prosecutors added that Russian security services were already “accused of multiple murders that have been committed in various European countries”.Special protection had been given to one witness, who was willing to be named later in the proceedings but was remaining anonymous for now given the security concerns, prosecutors said.Only referred to as M58 at this stage, the witness was a Russian volunteer attached to a separatist unit close to the BUK when it was launched on the day MH17 was shot down.The witness had testified that Russian military personnel — whom separatists said were from Russia’s FSB security agency — were with the missile at the launch site, they added.”Once it became clear in the following hours that it was not a military aircraft but civilian flight, MH17, the disinformation campaign started immediately,” prosecutor Dedy Woei-a-Tsoi said.Another witness identified only as S24 had “expressed a fear of reprisals by the Russian Federation”. And a third, known as V9, had asked to remain anonymous because “I might get picked up by Russian special services,” the prosecution added.The case was adjourned for two weeks and will resume on 23 March.Topics :last_img read more
