Kompany hit for six

first_img The influential defender was ruled out for at least a month after limping out of City’s season-opening Barclays Premier League win against Newcastle on August 19. Kompany has said he hopes to return inside a month – possibly for the trip to Stoke on September 14, or the start of the Champions League campaign three days later – but manager Manuel Pellegrini has warned he will not be rushed. Pellegrini said: “(There is) nothing new with Vincent. Press Association Manchester City fear captain Vincent Kompany could be sidelined for up to six weeks with his groin injury.center_img “Doctors said from the beginning it could last for six weeks. We will see next week how he improves but less than one month is impossible.” njuries to Kompany and Matija Nastasic, as well as another to Micah Richards, have led to increased speculation that City could sign another defender before next Monday’s transfer deadline. City have been heavily linked with Atletico Madrid’s Martin Demichelis, who worked with Pellegrini at Malaga, and a deal could move closer if the Spanish side secure Ajax’s Toby Alderweireld as a replacement. There have also been reports linking City with Porto’s £38million-rated Eliaquim Mangala, but that would seem unlikely given the apparent interest in Demichelis, as well as the cost. Pellegrini said: “There are a lot of names linked with Manchester City. It is not my duty to answer (on) all those names. “We will see next Monday what will happen. “We have some days to bring someone in. We will see what we can do.” City spent almost £90million earlier in the summer acquiring Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic. With that business long done, and the likely addition of one defender, Pellegrini insists this deadline day will not be a busy one at the Etihad Stadium. He said: “For Manchester City, no, for the rest of the teams, I don’t know.” last_img read more

RBR Health Screenings Could Be Life-saving

first_imgLITTLE SILVER – Parents worry. That’s what they do; it’s part of the job description.Parents of Red Bank Regional High School students had the opportunity this week to learn how to prevent a child from being hurt and how to detect a potentially life-threatening condition.“Information is power,” said Red Bank parent Brenda Terry.A panel offers a preview of a screening program that will be available beginning next week to school athletes at Red Bank Regional High School. Left to right are: Dr. Loyda Rivera, Olympian Joetta Clark Diggs, Matthew J. Morahan III Health Assessment Center for Athletes program director Diana Toto, Major League Soccer medical coordinator John Gallucci and Dr. John Shumko.She joined other parents, students and staff at the regional high school for a presentation on a new program that will evaluate students for possible cardiac-health problems, establish a baseline metric to measure concussions and provide information about concussion prevention and treatment.“It’s what you don’t know…,” Terry said, not finishing her thought.The school district has partnered with Barnabas Health. Doctors will be on campus from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 12 through Thursday, Aug. 15, to provide cardiac screening and concussion base-line evaluations for fall athletes, free of charge.Terry, whose 16-year-old son, Aaron, plays soccer at the high school, said she hadn’t given much thought to a possible heart condition that could put her seemingly healthy son at risk. What changed her mind was the number of young people who have died from such conditions – including two RBR students who died during the 2012-2013 school year.“It really is so scary,” she said.Last school year, Albert Martin and Riyadhna Farrow, who were RBR seniors, died suddenly from what school public information officer Marianne Kligman said were cardiac-related episodes.“It was an eye-opener,” Red Bank Parent Kathy Noble said of the students’ deaths. That’s what prompted her to come to the school Tuesday night with her daughter, Kyleigh, “to find out what the program is about.”The program is the Matthew J. Morahan III Health Assessment Center for Athletes, administered by Barnabas Health, owner and operator of six medical facilities in the state, including Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.Barnabas Health – through the invitation of the district board of education – will conduct an educational program for the school population that offers information about cardiac conditions and symptoms and provides some basic screening to detect conditions that could pose a serious health threat, especially for those engaged in strenuous sports.Barnabas operates the program out of all of its facilities, offering two free screenings a year at each facility, along with screenings it provides for schools.While physicians and program representatives will screen athletes Monday through Thursday, additional screenings will be conducted during the year for other athletes as well as the entire student body – at no cost to the students or families.The basic physical most students receive prior to playing organized sports doesn’t traditionally include an electrocardiogram, said Diana Toto, program director.The most common cause of sudden cardiac death is from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is often characterized by a thickening of the heart wall. HCM often goes undetected, especially in young people, until an athlete goes into cardiac arrest during extreme physical activity, said Dr. Loyda Rivera, a pediatric cardiologist at Mon­mouth Medical Center. “The problem is that it could be the first sign and the last sign.”There are other conditions to be on the lookout for, such as congenital abnormalities of the coronary arteries or Marfan syndrome, which affects the heart’s connective tissue, Rivera said.Be aware of symptoms, she advised, such as shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, especially after little or no exertion; chest pain or discomfort; palpitations; dizziness, fainting, seizures or convulsions.A panel of experts, assembled at RBR Tuesday night, advised everyone – not just athletes – that they should always drink fluids even prior to exercise.Concussions happen even with appropriate equipment, said Dr. John Shumko, program medical director. He noted that about 1.7 million people in the U.S. each year seek medical attention for traumatic brain injuries, resulting in 52,000 deaths annually.The important thing for those who have suffered a concussion it to receive proper attention and heal sufficiently before returning to sports or other activities. In most cases, that could take between 10 days and a month, Shumko said.The danger is that the patient will suffer a second impact, which has a high fatality rate, especially among young athletes.“Death can occur in a few minutes,” Shumko said.“What we’re talking about, cardiac issues, concussions, you can’t put a Band-Aid on it,” said Joetta Clark Diggs, a four-time Olympic long-distance runner who is the program spokeswoman.“It’s important to be as aware as possible to avoid disasters,” said Gene Horowitz of Red Bank, who was there with his son, Josh, who will be entering high school next month and plans to play soccer.Horowitz already has taken his son to see a doctor in preparation for school and sports. His son acknowledged that more kids are taking these discussions seriously, particularly after the deaths of Martin and Farrow. “They’re more aware and taking care of themselves,” he said.“I’m impressed RBR did this,” said Barb Kirkpatrick of Shrewsbury.Kirkpatrick’s daughter, Erin, suffered a concussion last November that prevented her from attending school full time for the remainder of the school year. “She’s still recovering,” Kirkpatrick said.“It’s good they’re doing this,” Erin said.Noble added: “This is going to help a lot of kids and give peace of mind to a lot of parents.” By John BurtonSchool joins Barnabas Health to prevent cardiac, concussion problemslast_img read more

Council to review snow clearing policy on Monday

first_imgCouncil will review the policy on Monday and determine the next steps to update the snow removal policy.  The full report being presented to Council is below. Snow removal is a source of financial stress for the City with snowfall amounts being unpredictable, finding the most financially efficient way to move the snow is an asset.With the 2017 and 2018 budgets exceeding the allocated snow clearing funds due to heavy snowfall. Having the right equipment and system in place is a must to ensure priorities for snow and ice control for streets, parking lots, and sidewalk/trails.The draft policy that will be presented to Council on Monday identifies priorities for snow and ice control for streets, parking lots, and sidewalk/trails. It also identifies levels of response which are operationalized in the administrative procedure.The draft also allows for the use of contracted services to help with clearing the streets and parking lots. Typically the contractors would work in a residential area, allowing City crews to move back to higher priority areas if required. It also allows for the ability to open a street, to make it safer to drive one – although it is not cleared from curb to curb. Crews would later go back and clear the street from curb to curb. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John City Council will hear from City staff Monday about a new plan for clearing snow in the City.Staff say the City can’t meet the existing policy directive with current resources. During the last review of the policy in 2010, staff changed to the current procedure that takes much longer to remove snow but doesn’t block residential drives.  Before 2010, plow trucks were used to remove snow with clearing completed within one to two days, yet the plows filled peoples driveways.Council asked staff before Christmas to review the current procedure and policy to align the two and to improve efficiencies.last_img read more

Alberta economy doing better than expected in June forecast TD economists note

first_imgIn its update report, however, it says the provincial economy appears to have started growing again in recent weeks, based on rising oil exports by pipe and rail, stronger wholesale and manufacturing shipments and a jump in small business confidence.It also cites an improvement in the jobless rate and positive population growth, along with more upbeat trends in Alberta’s stalled retail sales and housing sectors.The economists stop short of an immediate upgrade in their forecast, however, noting the volatility of regional statistics and the newly elected provincial government’s likely move to restrain spending.“All in all, recent encouraging data have added credence to the view that economic growth in Alberta is gaining some traction,” the report says.“While a continuation in this momentum would set the stage for a forecast upgrade, we remain cautious for now.” CALGARY — Economists at TD Bank say they are looking at upgrading their Alberta growth expectations for 2019 as signs point to a more robust than expected recovery from the effects of extreme heavy oil price weakness in late 2018.The bank suggested in a forecast in June that the province’s economy would grow by a “paltry” 0.5 percent this year and a slightly better 2.1 percent next year.It said the province’s mandated oil production curtailments had worked to strengthen heavy oil prices in early 2019 but business and household spending remained hampered by concerns around medium-term energy investment.
