GPHC to offer counselling for burn patients

Posted on by

first_imgThe Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) has announced that it will be offering counselling sessions to burn patients to assist them with their healing process.These sessions are expected to help with the patients’ journey to deal with their scars.Guyana Times understands that this idea was conceived after several complaints by patients in the Burns Care Unit (BCU) of the hospital about their physical appearance while going through therapy.The patients to receive counselling are between the ages of 20 and 40 and who would have suffered third-degree burns about their body. In addition, they are victims that were attacked by their former lovers.Meanwhile, counselling is expected to be done by senior workers who have experience of working with burn victims and know what these patients are going through.The counselling session is expected to begin on Monday and will be for one hour on a daily basis.However, just recently, the city hospital announced that nurses attached to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) Psychiatric ward will be undergoing continuous training to ensure they are always prepared to deal with all patients.last_img read more

Lakers Knicked up, 107-106

Posted on by

first_img• Photo Gallery: 02/13: Lakers vs. Knicks • Slideshow: 02/13: Lakers vs. Knicks LOS ANGELES – So much for the Lakers returning to the comforts of home after their two-week road trip. So much for things being different against the New York Knicks with Kobe Bryant on the court instead of serving a suspension. Bryant finished with 31 points while the Knicks got 24 from Curry and 19 each from Quentin Richardson and Jamal Crawford. They made the plays late and the Lakers dropped another game to a team with a losing record. Lakers coach Phil Jackson had warned his players they couldn’t fall back on their 19-6 home record. The Lakers, however, now have lost three consecutive home games, going back to games against Charlotte and San Antonio before the long trip. The Lakers had a chance to win on the final possession but couldn’t get the ball to Bryant. Odom inbounded to Ronny Turiaf and got the ball back but wound up changing directions and missed an 18-footer over David Lee. Prior to that, Curry finished an alley-oop dunk with 7.1 seconds left off a Crawford pass. The Knicks kept possession after Richardson missed a 3-pointer as Lee grabbed the offensive rebound and passed it back outside to Crawford. The end result was all the same Tuesday night, another crushing late-game loss. The Lakers returned to Staples Center, only to fall 107-106 to the Knicks and extend their season-long losing streak to four games. It was a victory that had Knicks fan Spike Lee running down the courtside seats to celebrate in front of Lakers fan Denzel Washington. The difference was an Eddy Curry alley-oop dunk and a Lamar Odom missed jumper in the last 10 seconds. center_img Odom went scoreless in the first half and finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. Turiaf finished with 11 points, but the charge he took with 1:08 left was one of the plays of the game. Stephon Marbury drove the lane and attempted a shot trying to beat the 24-second clock. He went crashing into Turiaf, however, who had position a step outside of the restricted area. The Lakers took a 104-103 lead as Bryant drove into a crowd and was fouled by Richardson. Bryant made both free throws with 59.5 seconds remaining. Curry then bowled over Smush Parker for a basket but Bryant sank a jumper to push the Lakers in front 106-105 with 29.9 seconds to play. That set up the game’s fateful possession, the alley-oop from Crawford to Curry. The Lakers were back at Staples Center for the first time since Jan. 28, with a new video for player introductions that prominently mentioned Bryant’s suspension and featured highlights from his return the next night against Boston. Bryant unloaded 43 points on the Celtics and talked before Tuesday’s game about the frustration of having to pace around his hotel room watching the Lakers lose 99-94 to the Knicks without him. But Bryant added he was more concerned about the Lakers snapping their three-game losing streak than any kind of payback. Jackson agreed, with an aside that nobody in the league office in New York was staying up to watch. “They see all the games,” Jackson said. “This one’s not any more important to them than any other.” Bryant couldn’t contain his excitement about being home after the Lakers’ longest road trip in 17 years. “We feel like we’re in Shangri-La,” he said. “I felt like kissing the ground when we got here.” Jackson was most concerned about the Lakers suffering the inevitable “lag” of coming home and ordered his players to report early to Staples Center to get re-acquainted with shooting on their home floor. ross.siler@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Chinese FA opens probe into Demba Ba racism controversy

first_imgVarious Chinese media reports said a furious Ba later claimed that Zhang had hurled racially insulting remarks at him.The Chinese Football Association (FA) said in a statement that it had launched an investigation and would hold hearings to determine whether any league conduct rules were violated.“If this is true, there will be stern punishment in accordance with the rules,” it said.“We oppose racist behaviour in any form.”The statement did not mention any particular players.Ba has not commented publicly on the affair but has retweeted anti-racism posts on his personal Twitter account.In a post-match press conference, Shenhua coach Wu Jingui had confirmed that “a Yatai player used insulting language toward” Ba.Following the match, Chinese social media exploded with calls for an investigation.If misconduct is proven, any guilty parties could indeed face tough sanctions from domestic football authorities who will want to nip any controversy in the bid.Chinese football is already under government scrutiny after splurging teams brought in a series of high-priced foreign players on transfer deals in recent years, prompting the government to impose tough spending curbs amid concerns over clubs’ solvency.Ba, a Senegalese international, had played for Shenhua in 2015-2016 before being sidelined by a broken leg.Brief spells with Turkish sides Besiktas and Goztepe followed before Ba returned to Shenhua in June during the summer transfer window.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Demba Ba in actionSHANGHAI, China, Aug 6- China’s football authority said Monday it was investigating reports that Senegalese striker Demba Ba was subjected to racial slurs by an opposing Chinese player during a weekend match, vowing “stern punishment” if the incident proved true.The African former Chelsea forward, now with Shanghai Shenhua, became embroiled in a heated confrontation with Changchun Yatai midfielder Zhang Li late in their 1-1 Chinese Super League draw on Saturday night after Ba collided with one of Zhang’s teammates.last_img read more

Man Utd and I are not thinking alike, says Herrera

Posted on by

first_img0Shares0000“I will listen to United, of course, but also to other clubs. I don’t close any doors,” said HereraMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 11 – Ander Herrera claims he won’t ‘close any doors’ as he decides his future but admits he and Manchester United are ‘not thinking alike’ over a new deal.The Spaniard only has a couple of months left to run on his current deal at Old Trafford and the two parties have been negotiating on a potential new deal for some time. United reportedly face competition from a host of clubs, including Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Juventus, who all want to sign Herrera on a free transfer at the end of the season.And Herrera admits that United and his representatives are no closer to finalising a new deal at the club.Herrera told Diario ABC: “It’s true that I only have two months left on my contract and as it is right now Manchester and I are not thinking alike and there is no renewal agreement.“But my duty is still to continue to listen to United. What it’s clear to me is that I will continue playing for a big team.“I take care of myself for that reason, I feel well and I want to continue in football for as long as my body allows me to because the day I retire I will begin to regret to have hung up my boots.“I will listen to United, of course, but also to other clubs. I don’t close any doors.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

King Ben will likely rule again in theaters

Posted on by

first_imgI’ll bet ya didn’t know this: There are two Ben Stillers. There’s box-office king Ben, who has had such $250 million-plus grossing smashes in recent years as “Night at the Museum” and “Meet the Fockers.” Then there’s box office commoner Ben. Remember “School for Scoundrels,” “Envy” and “Duplex”? Didn’t think so. My strong hunch is that Stiller will be royal Ben once again this weekend with the debut of his new wide-release comedy “The Heartbreak Kid.” It bowed in more than 3,000 theaters today, has an appealing marketing campaign and was directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who also did “Something About Mary” with Stiller. I think “Heartbreak” is a shoo-in for a first-place debut with an opening weekend gross of $25 million to $30 million. SEEKING TICKET SALES: I’ve heard zippo buzz about “The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising,” which opened in nearly as many theaters as “Heartbreak” but won’t make nearly as much money. If it takes in more than $10 million today to Sunday, I’ll be seeking a new crystal ball. Holdovers “The Game Plan” and “The Kingdom” should easily edge it out for the second and third spots, but I’m not sure in which order. SLOWLY EXPANDING HORIZONS: The Brad Pitt flick “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” will be a little easier to find since it expands to 61 locations today while “The Darjeeling Limited” starring Owen Wilson and Adrien Brody will be in 19 theaters. Then there is the new George Clooney thriller “Michael Clayton,” which has him in a more serious “Good Night, and Good Luck” mode than Danny Ocean mode. “Clayton” bowed in 15 locations today. THE OTHERS: With about 1,000 theaters apiece, the drama “The Jane Austen Book Club” expands from extremely limited release today and will try to build on positive word of mouth while the Jennifer Lopez- produced urban drama “Feel the Noise” will do its best to make some box-office noise. Expectations are lower with fewer screens so $5 million or so should be the most either film could hope for. LOOKING UP? Will the Stiller comedy, strong holdovers and the rest of the field be enough to put the domestic box office back on solid footing after a two-week mini-slump? Maybe. It’s no shoo-in since a year ago this weekend, “The Departed” had a $26.9 million bow, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning” opened to $18.5 million, and “Employee of the Month” debuted at $11.4 million. These are the numbers the field must top. CRUISE CRED: Tom Cruise knows he’s still on the comeback trail after his “Mission Impossible III” movie bombed and Paramount Pictures severed ties with him. So instead of playing up Tom Cruise, superstar, he is reminding people in initial TV spots for the new war drama “Lions for Lambs” that he is a three-time Academy Award nominee. Cruise is third-billed behind Oscar winner Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. He’s never won the the golden statue but was a strong contender with Best Actor nods for “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Jerry Maguire” and a supporting-actor nomination for “Magnolia.” But then again, Cruise’s Oscar winning ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, has some serious Oscar cred after winning for “The Hours.” That did nothing to help the performance of her summer mega-bomb “The Invasion.” greg.hernandez@dailynews.com (818) 713-3758160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tough new treatment for ovarian cancer prolongs life

Posted on by

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Dr. Steven A. Cannistra of Harvard Medical School wrote in an editorial that the 16-month jump in survival “is one of the largest benefits ever observed” from a new therapy for gynecologic cancer. In about 80 percent of ovarian-cancer cases, the disease spreads before it is diagnosed because early symptoms are so mild. Ovarian cancer is the top killer among gynecologic cancers in this country. Last year, about 22,200 American women were diagnosed with it and about 16,200 died from it, according to the cancer institute. Fewer than half the victims survive five years after diagnosis. To improve on that, doctors at dozens of U.S. hospitals, led by Dr. Deborah Armstrong at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, compared chemo regimens in 415 women. Each woman had surgery to remove ovarian tumors, but some hard-to-reach cancer cells remained in the abdominal cavity. It’s tough for intravenous chemo drugs to reach those cells, and there’s a limit to how high a dose can be given through the bloodstream. Half the women in the study got standard intravenous chemotherapy with Taxol and cisplatin. The others got intravenous Taxol, then abdominal infusions of cisplatin and more Taxol at high doses. The drugs were given through an implanted seal with a catheter or tiny tube, hanging down into the abdominal cavity. The women rolled back and forth to bathe all the cancer cells in the mixture. Pumping heavy doses of chemotherapy drugs right into the abdomen boosted survival of women with advanced ovarian cancer by 16 months in what experts call the first big advance in more than a decade against one of the most lethal cancers in women. There’s a high price, though: The treatment is so tough that nearly six in 10 women in a study could not endure it and switched to standard intravenous chemotherapy. Side effects included abdominal pain from bloating and problems with the catheter used to infuse the drugs. Still, in its first endorsement of any cancer treatment since 1999, the National Cancer Institute is urging doctors to begin using the procedure. Six medical groups that focus on ovarian cancer joined in the recommendation. The study was reported in today’s New England Journal of Medicine. The median survival time was about four years and two months for women who received only intravenous chemotherapy, but was slightly more than 5 years for women who also got at least some of the abdominal chemotherapy. But only 42 percent could tolerate all six cycles of abdominal chemotherapy. “It’s not perfect, but it is certainly a major improvement in outcome” – the biggest increase in ovarian cancer survival time since Taxol was introduced nearly 15 years ago, said Dr. Richard Barakat, chief of gynecologic oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. While more women on the abdominal treatment survived, their quality of life was significantly worse until weeks after treatment ended. Mary McFadden, a 68-year-old retired secretary from Ocean Pines, Md., who is near the end of the abdominal treatment, said her legs are weak, she is occasionally nauseated, and she has to urinate every hour. She has been too exhausted to do any household chores. “My husband’s been doing everything,” she said. Ann Henriques, 49, of Nyack, N.Y., also nearly done with her treatment, said she has to recline for days after the abdominal infusions because of abdominal pressure, and has suffered acid reflux and aches in her joints. But she had never found the treatment intolerable. “It’s going to save lives. I think it saved mine,” she said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
