Read Full Story Of the more than two million incarcerated Americans, many suffer from chronic health conditions, disease, and substance-use disorders, however some of their most urgent health concerns can be a throbbing tooth, or aching oral abscess.Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) students are learning this firsthand by providing care to patients incarcerated at Suffolk County’s Nashua Street Jail. Several HSDM students and faculty operate a weekly clinic at the 640-bed facility in downtown Boston as part of the Crimson Care Collaborative (CCC)—a team of medical, dental, and mental health professionals from Harvard and other institutions.“The waitlist for dental care is constantly overwhelmed, and many patients must wait in order to receive palliative treatment for highly progressed dental disease that can cause pain, sleep loss, or difficulty eating,” Mindy Truong, D.M.D. ’19, director of education for CCC at the jail said.Jails like Nashua Street traditionally offer limited short-term palliative dental care. The Suffolk County Sheriff ’s department welcomed the partnership with CCC to provide expanded health care options to inmates, along with the opportunity to train future health care providers in a correctional setting.“To our knowledge, this is the first collaboration of its kind involving student-delivered medical, dental and, mental health care in the correctional setting,” Lisa Simon, D.M.D. ’14, P.D. ’15, attending dentist for CCC said. “This benefits patients, who have expanded access to care, dental students, who learn about the unique correctional setting, and medical trainees, who can learn more about oral health.” Dr. Simon and colleagues recently wrote about the innovative model in an article for the American Journal of Public Health.The collaboration, spearheaded by Simon, began in October 2015 and has become a popular volunteer opportunity for DMD students. A student leadership board and faculty mentors run the clinic. Before entering the correctional setting, all volunteers attend mandatory training sessions, receive an overview of the U.S. justice system, and are screened for security clearance. Students’ roles range from conducting patient interviews and providing educational programs, to assisting or performing clinical treatment. To date, more than 15 D.M.D. students have participated in the program, and several alumni plan to work in a correctional setting or with formerly incarcerated people in the future.“I honestly wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when I signed up to volunteer at Nashua Street Jail. This is my first experience working with a population in a correctional setting,” Truong said. “I’m constantly reminded of the importance of considering the patient as an individual human being with unique experiences and perspectives, while remembering that we are all linked by a common humanity,” she said.Working with the incarcerated population, students gain awareness of the complex social determinants of health. They also work closely within interdisciplinary teams to collaborate on patient care and overall health.“People in jail face various health disparities that predispose them to increased morbidity and mortality. Many of our dental patients have complex medical conditions and/or mental health issues.” Zhen Shen, D.M.D. ’19, dental integrated clinician for CCC said.
Ole Krogh Pedersen, Danica PensionDifficult financial market conditions last year had been caused by concern about a trade war between the US and China, while negotiations regarding Brexit and Italy’s budget dragged on the euro-zone economy, the firm said.Krogh Petersen said Danica’s overall returns had improved since the introduction of a new investment strategy in 2016, in particular its allocation to alternatives.“These represent a growing part of our investments and, seen in isolation, have produced annual returns in excess of 10% in the past three years,” he said. “Our ambition is to further increase the share of alternative investments in the coming years.”Profits and M&A Denmark’s second-biggest commercial pension provider has reported that some of its pension products lost up to a tenth of their value over the course of 2018.Danica Pension’s pre-tax profits dropped by more than a third last year, which it said was due to the cost of integrating the activities of SEB Pension Denmark and transaction costs arising from the sale of its Swedish business .Costs related to higher insurance claims provisions were also to blame, it said in its full-year results announcement.Ole Krogh Petersen, Danica Pension’s chief executive, said: “After several years of solid positive returns, the challenging market conditions unfortunately not only hit Danica’s performance but also produced negative returns for our customers with unit-linked products.” Returns for customers with the market-rate, or unit-linked, pension product Danica Balance Mix experienced results ranging from a 0.9% profit to a 9.8% loss, depending on risk profile.The savings of those who had opted for medium risk and had 20 years until retirement suffered a 7% loss. Meanwhile, traditional with-profits pensions recorded a 1.7% return in 2018, down from 2.5% the year before.“Although pensions should be viewed from a long-term perspective, it is no secret that 2018 was not a satisfactory year in terms of returns,” Danica Pension said. Source: Finn Årup Nielsen Danica Pension’s office in Lyngby, DenmarkDanica’s profit before tax from continuing operations fell to DKK1.2bn (€161m) in 2018, down 35% from the DKK1.9bn gained in 2017.Danica sold its Swedish activities during 2018, but the deal has yet to be approved by Swedish authorities, meaning the sale price of DKK1.9bn has not yet been booked by the company.Total assets at the end of 2018 were DKK566bn, up from DKK427bn 12 months earlier. Danica Pension closed in on its long-term rival PFA in size terms – PFA’s total assets were DKK582bn at the end of June.However, Danica’s overall assets are set to shrink significantly once the effect of the Swedish sale shows through in its accounts.

Batesville, IN— With a detailed plan to bring students back safely, the Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC) has announced that it will return to in-classroom instruction on the scheduled first day of school on August 5, according to Paul Ketcham, BCSC superintendent. The BCSC plan is contingent upon Governor Eric Holcomb moving Indiana into Stage 5 of its safe reopening plan in early July, as projected.“Using the guidance provided by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE), the BCSC administration is addressing every aspect of school life and making the adjustments we think are necessary to safely bring our students and staff back into our buildings,” Ketcham stated. “The governor has empowered local school districts to review the recommendations offered by the IDOE and to tailor those for each community. We’ve been working hard to determine the best practices for keeping students healthy while still delivering the quality education Batesville is famous for.”BCSC is developing a document entitled “Batesville Blueprint: Bringing Bulldogs Back Safely on August 5th,” which will provide a district-specific version of the IDOE guidelines. The guidelines will address common concerns such as safety on the buses, in the classroom, at mealtimes, and during athletics and other extracurriculars. In addition, the plan will address steps parents and guardians can take at home to reduce the risk of spreading communicable diseases within the school community.“To explain Batesville’s plans, I’ll be providing weekly video updates to students, parents, and other stakeholders between now and the start of school,” Ketcham explained. “These videos will help break down our plans into smaller sections, and will be shared on social media and on our special COVID-19 website.”More information and the videos will be available by clicking here. Like the guidance provided by the state, this local document is likely to be subject to revision.
How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start “Your stuff sometimes comes and goes,” Kershaw said of looking rejuvenated in 2020. “But your ability to compete and your ability to manipulate your way through games and figure out different ways to get outs, ultimately that’s what wins games. I’m thankful that my stuff has ticked up this year and I’m going to pitch as long as I’m having fun. I’m having a ton of fun and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon.”Thursday in Seattle must have been fun indeed.It was the 63rd time in his career that Kershaw has struck out 10 or more. The Mariners swung and missed at 19 of his season-high 96 pitches — the most empty air he has induced since a complete-game, 13-strikeout start against the Kansas City Royals on July 9, 2017.Over his past two starts, Kershaw has allowed just two runs on five hits while striking out 17 in 14 innings.“That was vintage Kershaw,” said Cody Bellinger, who was also a seventh-grader during Kershaw’s debut season. “It was cool watching from center field. I got to see how he was working and honestly just standing out there for the most part. … He was on his ‘A’ game today.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error When Clayton Kershaw got Skip Schumaker to swing and miss for the first strikeout of the young left-hander’s career on May 25, 2008, Shed Long Jr. was finishing up seventh grade in Alabama.Schumaker is on the San Diego Padres’ coaching staff now and Long is a big-leaguer with the Seattle Mariners — and Kershaw is still striking guys out.Long became the 2,487th strikeout of Kershaw’s career when he swung and missed at an 0-and-2 slider in the fifth inning at T-Mobile Park on Thursday.

(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)ExpandLong had plenty of company Thursday as well. Kershaw struck out 11 while allowing just four hits in seven dominant innings as the Dodgers beat the Mariners 6-1. The Mariners’ only damage against Kershaw was a solo home run by Kyle Seager in the fourth inning. Kershaw has allowed just six runs in 24 innings this season. Five have come on solo home runs.“In certain situations, I’m not going to say a walk is worse than a home run, but walks can lead to big innings,” Kershaw said. “Obviously you’re not trying to give up home runs. But you fall behind guys or keep attacking guys with fastballs early in the counts, sometimes those solo home runs will get you. I feel like I’ve been doing that a lot recently.“It’s not a great thing. I’m going to try and stop. But it definitely won’t beat you and I feel that sometimes walks and stuff like that can lead to big innings and that’s what ultimately can get you.”The strikeout of Long came to start the next inning and Kershaw retired seven of the final 11 batters he faced on strikeouts, relying on his breaking pitches but also showing the livelier fastball that has characterized his starts this season.“Today it took a few innings to get my slider going,” Kershaw said. “Really after Seager hit that homer, I tried to do some different things with it, finish it better. It definitely got better as the game went on. The curveball was pretty good throughout the whole day, which I was thankful for, being able to throw strikes with it early. A lot of guys were taking it so it was kind of a free strike. Then I was able to bury a few at the end for some strikeouts. All in all, it was a good day and I feel good about it.”The Dodgers have to feel good about what they see from a 32-year-old Kershaw who appears to be throwing freer and easier than he has in recent years while also being wiser for his years.“It’s a more dynamic Clayton,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.The Dodgers backed him with ample offense but the game might have turned on a call by home plate umpire Adrian Johnson in the third inning.With two runners on to start the inning, Matt Beaty appeared to take a third strike but Johnson called it a ball to even the count, 2-and-2. The next pitch, Beaty appeared to swing and miss at a pitch in the dirt. Johnson signaled Beaty had foul tipped the pitch — which came as a surprise to Beaty who had started to walk toward the dugout.Given new life, Beaty bounced a ground-rule double over the wall in the right-field corner to drive in the game’s first run. Three more runs scored on a passed ball and RBI singles by A.J. Pollock and Bellinger.Bellinger kept creeping out of his slow start with a solo home run later in the game, giving him home runs in back-to-back games. Over the past week, Bellinger is 7 for 25 with four home runs.“It’s more sticking with the process, analyzing every at-bat but not results, just going by feel, and if the feel is off talk with the hitting coaches and discuss it,” Bellinger said. “It’s a tough game. It’s best not to get too up or too down.“In this instance, where the team is so good, it definitely makes it a little easier. Obviously I don’t want to be hitting like this. But the team is going to have your back.”Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco
