Broome County takes part in March for Meals campaign, how you can help

first_img“I actually got really addicted to it. It’s really awesome getting to work with these elderly people, seeing their lives, and it just really makes an impact,” he said. Hamza Syed got involved with volunteer about four years ago. One way to support the organization is to become a volunteer. It calls on the community to support our local Meals on Wheels programs, which deliver meals to older adults in the area. That kicks off March 16, where location politicians will be out on the streets to see what volunteers do first-hand. And it doesn’t take much to make a difference. Syed says dedicating a whole month to bringing awareness to Meals on Wheels is important. “To bring awareness to the program and the importance of it in the community to help keep older adults independent in their homes for as long as possible,” said Office for Aging Meals on Wheels coordinator Rebecca Morales.center_img “Not a lot of people do this work. It’s usually the same exact people for the past few years. I think I’m one of the youngest people here, so it would be great to see young faces in because we need more people doing this work,” he said. BROOME COUNTY (WBNG) — This month, Broome County is participating in the national March for Meals campaign. Another part of the campaign is “Meals on Wheels Community Champions Week.” “You make a tremendous impact on your community and it doesn’t involve that much time, like an hour and a half a day. And you don’t even have to drive, you can be one of the persons sitting in the car just giving the food out and you are literally changing peoples’ lives and their days,” said Syed. “So they can put a face to the program and see the people we serve, so when they’re out there doing their official duties, they’ll hopefully remember us and the program and the people we serve,” said Morales. If you want to get involved with Meals on Wheels, or know someone who would benefit from it, contact the Office of Aging at (607)778-2411.last_img read more

Local politicians weigh-in on stimulus package

first_imgFirst, is the money going to health care, which can be flexible based on need. “That is a drop in the bucket, as to need,” the governor said. “I spoke to our House delegation, Congressional delegation, this morning. I said to them, this doesn’t do it.” Second, is the money going to small businesses to keep them afloat, including in the Southern Tier. However, Governor Andrew Cuomo doesn’t think the proposed $3.8 billion will be enough and changes need to be made. “If you’re a small business and you have to close because customers or your workers can’t come in, you will get a low-interest or no-interest loan to keep you going during the crisis. If you keep your employees that loan is forgiven,” said Schumer. (WBNG) — The proposed stimulus package has finally passed the Senate, and local leaders are happy to see progress. “It’s a good thing that Democrats and Republicans are coming together here to pass an economic stimulus package so we can be able to respond to the economic crisis our country is facing right now,” says Representative Anthony Brindisi. Finally, the money going to individuals and families. Outside of that disagreement, the three focal points of this package are what makes most local leaders approve of this package. “Let’s say a hospital needs to hire a nurse who is not working right now, but they need her back because they have new patients and new needs under coronavirus. They’ll be able to pay for childcare if she has a child at home who’s not in school. So she can, or he can come into work,” say Senator Chuck Schumer. “$1,200 for individuals and an additional 500 dollar cash payment per child, I think is a really good thing. It will help a lot of people throughout the Southern Tier,” said Brindisi.last_img read more

Vietnam reports another victim of avian flu

first_imgNov 8, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – A 35-year-old man from Hanoi has become the 42nd Vietnamese to die of H5N1 avian influenza, while the number of suspected cases in Indonesia continued to grow, news services reported today.Samples taken from the man were positive for the H5N1 virus, according to tests performed at the National Institute of Epidemiology in Hanoi, health ministry official Tran Duc Long told Agence France-Presse (AFP).The man became ill after eating a chicken with his family, was hospitalized Oct 26, and died Oct 29, according to a Reuters report. If confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO), his case will bring the number of confirmed H5N1 cases in Vietnam to 92.In addition, doctors in Vietnam said they suspected H5N1 killed a 68-year-old man from Quang Tri province, Reuters reported.Meanwhile, Indonesia continued to test for human infections. A 16-year-old girl who died in a Jakarta hospital on Nov 6 is suspected of having had H5N1 infection, according to an AFP report today.”Based on the symptoms, especially high fever, heavy pneumonia and a rapid lowering of lymphocyte cells in the blood, I tend to believe that the patient has bird flu,” said Ilham Patu, a spokesman at the Sulianti Saroso hospital in South Jakarta, in an AFP interview. Samples from the victim will be tested for H5N1.Elsewhere in Indonesia, officials were testing dozens of birds, as well as samples from 14 relatives and neighbors of 19-year-old Ina Sholati, who died of H5N1 in Tangerang last month, AFP reported. WHO confirmed her yesterday that she had the H5N1 virus.AFP cited a report from the Kompas daily newspaper that 11 chickens had died at Sholati’s home in early October and were dumped in a nearby pond. Sholati’s 8-year-old brother, Ilham Junaidi, who is recovering from a confirmed H5N1 infection, played in the pond. The same source told the newspaper that neighbors hadn’t been told how to prevent avian flu infection.The Jakarta Post reported today that the Sulianti Saroso Hospital was still treating Sholati’s daughter and nephew, as well as a nurse.”Both her daughter and nephew tested negative for bird flu. They don’t have bird flu symptoms and seem to be in good health. However, we are still waiting for the test results of a nurse who took care of Ina (Sholati),” Patu told the Post. “If she tests positive, there is a great possibility that she got the virus from Ina. The nurse has no history of being in close contact with birds or chicken.”Reported numbers of human cases of avian flu in Indonesia continue to vary. Today’s AFP story said Indonesia has had more than a dozen suspected avian flu deaths. The Indonesian government had tallied 40 human cases of avian flu with 15 deaths as of Nov 1, according to a presentation given at the global conference under way in Geneva and posted on the WHO Web site. The WHO has confirmed nine cases, five of which were fatal.The battle against poultry outbreaks also continued. In China, authorities culled 6 million chickens over the weekend in response to an outbreak in the county of Heishan in Liaoning province in northeastern China, according to Xinhua news service. Local farmers cooperated with the government and received about US $1.16 million in compensation.See also:Indonesia’s presentation at Geneva conference on pandemic fluhttp://www.who.int/mediacentre/events/2005/04_Indonesia_Sri_mulhani.pdflast_img read more

Rodgers rules out Balotelli bid

first_img “We still have a few bits and pieces we would like to do to solidify the group, but there’s no names or definite signings yet.” The early signs of the post-Suarez era have been promising for Rodgers. Liverpool have beaten Olympiacos, Manchester City and AC Milan to reach the final of the International Champions Cup, which is being played at the Sun Life Stadium, home of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. Their opponents have also won every match on tour, including a creditable 3-1 win over Real Madrid on Saturday. Liverpool last season finished some 20 points above United, who were woeful under David Moyes. But Rodgers is expecting a much tougher fight from Liverpool’s arch-rivals this year thanks to Louis van Gaal’s appointment as manager. “It was unfortunate it didn’t work out for them last year, but I would suspect, and they will expect, to put up a greater challenge this year,” said Rodgers, who is clearly a fan of Van Gaal. “Louis is someone I have watched for many years, he is a very experienced manager,” he added. “It was unfortunate what happened with David. “But I am sure Louis van Gaal will look forward to the challenge of working in the Premier League because it will be different to any other league he’s worked in.” Rodgers thinks the rivalry between the two teams could give an extra edge to the match, which is scheduled to be played in extremely humid conditions. “It will have no bearing on the season, but this is a big rivalry,” he said. “It has been a long couple of weeks and we want to finish it off with a really good game and win it.” The England players in Rodgers’ squad will be familiar with the setting for the final, which kicks off at 1am UK time on Tuesday morning. England played Honduras and Ecuador at the Sun Life Stadium in the build-up to their poor World Cup campaign, which saw them exit the tournament in the group stages. Jordan Henderson, who played in both warm-up games and was a first-choice midfielder during the tournament, says he is over the disappointment of what happened in Brazil. “You can’t afford to dwell on things,” the Liverpool midfielder said. “Everyone was disappointed with the World Cup but as soon as it’s over you have got to forget about it. “Now we are here, playing for Liverpool so it’s a different ball game. You have to concentrate on what’s ahead.” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he will not be signing Mario Balotelli this summer. Rodgers is adamant Balotelli will not be coming to Anfield though. “I can categorically tell you Mario Balotelli will not be at Liverpool,” Rodgers told a press conference on the eve of Liverpool’s game against Manchester United in Miami. “In my last press conference I was asked a question about Mario Balotelli and I talked about what a talent he was and what an excellent player he was. “And the next day it was wrote as if we were signing him. “I just gave my perception of him as a player. It shouldn’t be transmitted in to us signing the player.” Rodgers has used the £75million he received for Suarez to fund the signings of Lambert, Origi, Emre Can, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Lazar Markovic. The Northern Irishman continues to be linked to more players though, the latest two being Sevilla star Alberto Moreno and Atletico Madrid defender Javier Manquillo. Rodgers would not name any of his targets, but he admitted he is still in the market for new additions. Press Association Rodgers showered praise on Balotelli last week, which led to speculation he could sign the AC Milan front man. The Liverpool boss has already signed Lille striker Divock Origi and England’s Rickie Lambert to help plug the gap left by Luis Suarez’s departure, but he could still make a move for another striker. last_img read more
