Health – BBC News

NHS and care workers will not have to pay to use Chichester’s Northgate car park until April 2021.

The news emerged during a virtual meeting of the district council’s cabinet where a number of incentives were detailed to attract people into the West Sussex city as the lockdown eases.

The initial suggestion was only for NHS workers to be allowed to park free of charge but members agreed with advice from the overview and scrutiny committee that care workers should be included too.

Money from car parks makes up a significant portion of the council’s income and the finances were hit hard when charges were suspended in March.

The incentives will come into play when charging returns on 8 June.

There will be free parking at the Avenue De Chartres car park every Saturday and Sunday for three months, and customers who use the MiPermit app will get one hour

The New York Times

The coronavirus patient, a 75-year-old man, was dying. No family member was allowed in the room with him, only a young nurse.In full protective gear, she dimmed the lights and put on quiet music. She freshened his pillows, dabbed his lips with moistened swabs, held his hand, spoke softly to him. He wasn’t even her patient, but everyone else was slammed.Finally, she held an iPad close to him so he could see the face and hear the voice of a grief-stricken relative Skyping from the hospital corridor.After the man died, the nurse found a secluded hallway and wept.A few days later, she shared her anguish in a private Facebook message to Dr. Heather Farley, who directs a comprehensive staff-support program at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware. “I’m not the kind of nurse that can act like I’m fine and that something sad didn’t just happen,” she

Hazzouri


Scranton dentist Dr. Albert Hazzouri loves dropping the name of his friend, President Donald Trump, in the course of doing business.


The New York Times reported Wednesday that Hazzouri tried to get the federal government to buy coronavirus test kits from his associates. Hazzouri mentioned his Trump connection when he encountered resistance, the newspaper reported.


Two years ago, Hazzouri alluded to his Trump friendship as he sought a Florida dental license before state regulators.


Repeated efforts to reach Hazzouri on Wednesday were unsuccessful.


Citing unnamed sources involved with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s operations, The New York Times reported Hazzouri repeatedly called FEMA officials and a separate team of Trump administration volunteers working on procurement. He wanted to help facilitate the purchase of about 100,000 kits from Mexico.


Hazzouri, 64, also mentioned his friendship with Trump while trying to obtain a

TIMES-TRIBUNE ARCHIVES Dr. Elsie Cole, retiring president of the Scranton District Dental Society, turns over the gavel to Dr. Frank B. Gardner, 1954 president, at the election and installation dinner on Dec. 14, 1953, at the Hotel Jermyn. From left: Gardner, Cole, Dr. Joseph Newman, Dr. John C. Specker and Dr. C.W. Taylor.


From the time she was 5 years old, helping her father count supplies and prepare gold for fillings, Elsie Cole was destined to become the first female dentist in Lackawanna County.


Born in Scranton in 1892, she was determined to follow in the footsteps of her father, P.F. Struppler, who had a dental practice in West Side. She attended the School of Lackawanna and then Temple School of Dentistry, where she met Jesse Cole, another dental student who would become her husband. They married in 1914, a year after they graduated.

Fitness Blog from fitnessbloggers | Fitness News, Tips and Articles

personal-training-workoutAfter having spent the Summer back in the States, I returned back to London last month and straight back to work. Unfortunately my time away over the Summer has been spent largely socialising and catching up with friends and family. My fitness has frankly gone out the window, except for a few early morning jogs. So to kick start me back into a healthy regime I decided to try a course of personal training sessions once again, as this worked so well for me before. I was looking for intense results and the motivation to get me back on track.

My trainer Daniel turned up at my home and within a few minutes had analysed my lifestyle, eating habits and exercise shortcomings. With a knowing nod of his head, he assured me, “We’ll get you back into top shape, but you’ll have to make some changes”. Okay so I was
