Getting his teeth into the community

first_imgThe center serves a large number of recent immigrants from Central America. During his externship, Lisann spoke in Spanish to better connect with patients. He also developed techniques to build children’s confidence once they’re in his chair, like counting down and focusing on deep breathing before Lisann uses a needle to administer a shot of anesthetic. He tells Diego the sensation will be like a quick mosquito bite and asks him to give a thumbs-up to let him know he’s OK.Fourth-year HSDM students like Lisann complete a community-based general dentistry externship to expand their perspective of oral health delivery systems, and build on their medical and dental knowledge by providing care in a community setting. Besides Charles River Community Health Center, other HSDM externship sites include Boston Health Care for the Homeless, Brookside Community Health Center, Community Health Center of Cape Cod, The Dimock Center, Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital, Harvard Street Neighborhood Health Center, Lynn Community Health Center, Mattapan Community Health Center, and the VA Boston Healthcare System.Harvard School of Dental Medicine student Ryan Lisann with his young patient, Diego.Once on site, students collaborate with community dentists to develop treatment plans and treat underserved populations. HSDM students spend 12 weeks in each externship, twice the typical six-week externship at other dental schools, which gives them time to build a closer connection to the patients, dentists, and staff at the sites.“We love working with HSDM students,” said dental director Janice Cho at Charles River Health. (She is also a lecturer at the School.) “We look forward to having the externs rotate through the health center as they bring a positive energy and provide compassionate care to patients who need it the most,” she said.Charles River Community Health Center serves the communities of Allston, Brighton, and Waltham by providing comprehensive, coordinated care. The center’s roots are in Allston-Brighton, where it was first established as the Joseph M. Smith Community Health Center more than 35 years ago. Dental services have been offered since the beginning, and HSDM students have been part of dental care at the center for nearly 20 years.“The aim of Charles River Community Health is to provide a dental safety net experience that externs hopefully enjoy, learn and grow from,” said Cho.“There’s such a great need for community dental care in the U.S.,” Lisann said. “This experience has taught me so much and opened my eyes to areas where I can have the most impact.” For Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) student Ryan Lisann, completing one of the last requirements of his four-year D.M.D. program — a three-month externship at Charles River Community Health Center in Brighton — was an experience that will shape his career.“I’m really passionate about education and wanting to work with kids, so getting to work in a community health setting and treating pediatric patients confirmed the path I want to take,” Lisann said.“Seeing patients arrive at a clinic, particularly young children, with a mouth full of cavities is incredibly disheartening. It’s clear that education is part of the solution.”Lisann hopes to use early childhood dental education to address disparities in oral health and fill gaps in care to lessen the need for fillings. After graduation, while his peers go on to residency programs and dental practices around the country, Lisann plans to work part time and pursue a master’s degree in education before applying for a pediatric dentistry residency.On a recent Friday at Charles River Community Health Center, Lisann was treating 10-year-old Diego. Speaking reassuringly in Spanish to the young Venezuelan, Lisann explained the procedure he would be using to fill two cavities.“The biggest thing is building trust,” Lisann said. “Many kids we treat here are seeing a dentist for the first time.” “Seeing patients arrive at a clinic, particularly young children, with a mouth full of cavities is incredibly disheartening. It’s clear that education is part of the solution.” — Ryan Lisannlast_img read more

Puerto Rico to Seek Buyers for Battered Electricity Utility

first_imgPuerto Rico to Seek Buyers for Battered Electricity Utility FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Puerto Rico’s governor said on Monday he intends to sell off the U.S. territory’s troubled power utility to the private sector, saying the process could take roughly 18 months to complete. A worker of Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority (PREPA) repairs part of the electrical grid after Hurricane Maria hit the area in September, in Manati, Puerto Rico October 30, 2017. The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) has yet to recover fully from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria, which in late September knocked out power to the entire island, leaving all 3.4 million residents in the dark and killing dozens of people. “The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority has become a heavy burden on our people, who are now hostage to its poor service and high cost,” Governor Ricardo Rossello said in a statement. “What we know today as the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority does not work and cannot continue to operate like this.” Less than 64 percent of homes and businesses are receiving power, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Energy. PREPA had promised that most of the island would have power by the end of December. The new plan calls for 30 percent of power generation to be from renewable sources. Rossello described how the process for breaking up the company would occur in three phases, calling it a move toward a “consumer-centered model.” Phase one consists of defining the legal framework via legislation. Phase two will be evaluating bids, and phase three will be “the terms of awarding and hiring the selected companies that meet the requirements for the transformation and modernization of our energy system will be negotiated.” Given PREPA is currently trying to work its way through bankruptcy and all of the island’s financial dealings must go through the federally appointed Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico, selling off PREPA’s assets could be a long process. One analyst was skeptical of Rossello’s plan. “He’s got no energy plan, no financial analysis, if he thinks he’s going to sell it off and the private sector is going to come in and invest, that is a recipe for Puerto Rico being raked over the coals by private interests,” said Tom Sanzillo, director of finance for the Cleveland, Ohio-based Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis. “This will produce a maximum amount of corruption and a minimal amount of electricity,” said Sanzillo, whose as provided expert witnesses to PREC proceedings.More: Puerto Rico to sell off crippled power utility PREPAlast_img read more

Lithuania plans major overhaul of second-pillar pensions

first_imgLinas Kukuraitis, Lithuanian minister for social security and labourIn the government’s presentation of the reforms, Linas Kukuraitis, minister for social security and labour, said the changes were essential to tackle the country’s deteriorating demographics and the low level of pensions for the poorest retirees.As a result of a falling birth rate and high emigration, Lithuania’s population has fallen by more than 23% since the start of the 1990s to an estimated 2.9m. It is expected to decline by a further 1% a year for the foreseeable future, reducing the number of workers supporting a single pensioner from 3.5 to 1.7 by middle of the century.Meanwhile, without reforms, the wage replacement ratio of current pensions was expected to fall from 42% to 34%.Contribution changesUnder Lithuania’s current “maximum accumulation” scenario, second-pillar savings in 2016-19 are funded by the so-called ‘2+2+2’ system: 2% of social security system contributions, with an additional 2% of additional payment from a salary, matched by a state contribution based on the previous year’s average state wages.  The government has proposed to change this over the coming five years to a ‘4+2’ formula, with transfers from the social security system ceasing and salary contributions doubling.For those currently paying the maximum contribution, proposed tax changes would in effect reduce the overall social security contribution, making it cost-neutral for these contributors, the government said.Employers and employees can voluntarily make contributions above 4%, qualifying for further tax relief.Alternative solutions were not deemed acceptable or feasible by the government, including raising the retirement age by eight years, increasing social security contributions by 12 percentage points, or increasing the working population by some 600,000.The reforms, if passed by the Seimas (parliament), would come into effect next year. However, the reforms include a 50% cut in pension fees, as well as a reduction in the minimum amount currently required to purchase an annuity. Pension funds will also be obliged to introduce life-cycle investment strategies.This policy has long been advocated by Bank of Lithuania, the sector regulator, which has argued that the majority of fund members were assuming either too much or too little risk for their age group. Lithuania plans to introduce auto-enrolment for younger workers as part of long-awaited major reforms to its voluntary second-pillar pensions system.The government in Vilnius yesterday announced the most radical pension system overhaul since 2013. The most significant proposal is the introduction of second-pillar auto-enrolment for workers under 40 years of age, with the right to opt out, delay or temporarily suspend payments.For the pensions industry, auto-enrolment is expected to save asset managers substantial sums in sales and marketing costs.last_img read more

Are You At The Right Age To Get Married?.

first_imgLifestyleRelationships Are You At The Right Age To Get Married?. by: – July 1, 2011 Share Share 26 Views   no discussions By Korin MillerStudies reveal that you should reach a specific age before you get married.16-year-old Courtney Alexis Stodden recently tied the knot with her 51-year-old boyfriend Doug Hutchison. Everyone was not only baffled by their age difference, but by the fact this teen made a life-altering decision at the ripe young age of 16. Marrying young is nothing new. We’ve seen it in the past with celebs like Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears and Reese Witherspoon. And while Avril admits she got a divorce after three years of marriage because she thought she was too young, we can’t help but wonder if others have reached the same age-related issue.The Magic NumberThere are practical reasons for the mid-20s dividing line, and most of them boil down to two biggies: education and money. Turns out, the more years of higher education a woman has under her belt on her wedding day, the lower the chances that she’ll get divorced…and by 25, you’re more likely to have earned a degree or two. “Educated women tend to be more confident about who they are and less willing to settle for a man who doesn’t meet their standards,” explains Terri Orbuch, PhD, author of Five Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage From Good to Great.Odds are that by 25 you’re also supporting yourself, so there’s less incentive for you to rush into marriage because you’re seeking financial security from him.But the marriage-related benefits of working and having money of your own go beyond feeling secure, says Pepper Schwartz, PhD, author of Finding Your Perfect Match. Learning to budget your cash carefully when you’re single will help you avoid financial problems—one of the main causes of couple fights—for the rest of your life. And juggling responsibilities, dealing with differing personalities, and resolving conflicts on the job force you to develop skills that are necessary for maintaining long-term love.Knowing the Real YouAt 25, you’ve had time for some crucial life experiences, including a relationship or two that may have improved your Mr. Right radar. “You’ve probably dated enough to have a better idea of what you don’t want in a man, which makes it easier to know what you can live with and can’t live without,” says Orbuch.Perhaps the most important aspect of waiting is that you’ll know what your goals and values really are, says Paul Coleman, PsyD, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Intimacy. While you don’t want to marry someone just like you, marriage is a lot easier if you two share a similar outlook on life.Twenty-four and already married to the man of your dreams? Don’t worry: Many young marriages survive. But given the choice, you might consider putting off the big day until your mid-20s or later.Source: Cosmopolitan.comcenter_img Sharing is caring!

Bring on Ivory Coast says Appiah

first_imgGhana coach Kwesi Appiah said he would have wished to battle it out with tournament favourites Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals instead of Cape Verde.Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Appiah said if he had his way he would have changed the pairings to ensure that the Black Stars face the Elephants because the Blue Sharks have got nothing to lose.The former Ghana international said despite his views, he still holds a lot of respect for the Islanders and will employ every strategy to cripple their chances of making history with the Black Stars.“We need to respect Cape Verde,” Appiah said. “They are 100 per cent disciplined. It is not going to be easy. We need to work more to go past them.”He added: “I’ll prefer to meet Ivory Coast than meeting Cape Verde. When you are playing a team that has got nothing to lose it’s difficult because there is no pressure on them. That is the fear in me.”Ghana have booked a quarter-final date with the debutants on Saturday after leading their group following an emphatic 3-0 win over Niger.last_img read more

Pedro Strop rips Yasiel Puig after hit by pitch incident: ‘He’s stupid as f—’

first_imgHitting Yasiel Puig in the batter’s box? Not a great idea. pic.twitter.com/IaeeuSvqy1— FOX Sports Ohio (@FOXSportsOH) June 29, 2019Things calmed down after the game, but Strop didn’t understand why Puig was so upset. “He just reacted like that,” Strop said. “Maybe because it was a 3-0 pitch, maybe it looks weird. I wasn’t commanding my sinker, and I didn’t want to leave a cookie 3-0. He’ll swing 3-0 and hit it way out of the park. He just acted stupid.”I told him, ‘Why are you talking? You have a chance to do whatever you need to do on the mound. Now you’re just screaming.” Puig said he hasn’t had any previous incidents like this with Strop, but he hopes everyone can move forward and focus on the next game of the series. “I don’t know. You need to ask (Strop),” Puig said. “Myself and my teammates want to go out tomorrow and win the series. … We’ll play the game tomorrow and forget about what happened today.”The Cubs ended up winning, 6-0, after the Reds won Friday’s game. The two will play again Sunday at 1:10 p.m. ET to close out the three-game series. Cubs reliever Pedro Strop made it known he was not happy with Yasiel Puig after a hit by pitch incident in Saturday’s game against the Reds. “It’s not a secret he’s stupid,” Strop said of Puig (via the Chicago Sun-Times). “He’s stupid as f—. I mean, I have nothing against him, but he’s stupid. There’s no doubt about it.” MLB wrap: Brendan McKay was ‘fun to watch’ in debut with Rays It all started when Puig was hit by a pitch with two outs in the eighth inning. Strop hit Puig in the left thigh with a 94-mph fastball, causing a strong reaction from Puig as he threw his helmet to the ground and started yelling as he walked toward the mound.The benches from both sides cleared as they came to defend their teammates. Puig had to be held back, but no punches were thrown. Related Newslast_img read more
