It was great to see this unit today and celebrate this milestone with the unit, the young people and the charity.”Oliver adds: “Teenage Cancer Trust know that teenagers don’t stop being teenagers just because they have cancer, so we thought an arcade machine was a great way to keep them occupied during long stays in hospitals. We’ve certainly enjoyed playing on it today, and we hope the young people do too!”The twelve bed unit took the charity four years to develop and opened to patients in 2010. The unit cares for patients aged 13 to 18 with bone and soft tissue tumours from the West Midlands as well as across the UK. Teenage Cancer Trust recently opened an additional space for 18-24 year olds in the same hospital.The unit, which includes two six-bed bays, all equipped with TV and DVD/CD playing facilities and a parent’s recliner chair/bed, provides a home from home for many young people and their families. Unlike ‘ordinary’ hospital wards, it has a conservatory with a lounge area including a pool table, digital jukebox and gaming zone, a kitchen with built in appliances, an outside patio as well as access to media facilities such as the internet, TV and music.Source:Teenage Cancer Trustlast_img read more

This was explained today in a media statement that a team of special investigators are in country and the goal is for them to take another and a more expert look at some of the homicides committed within the islands. “The Commissioner alerted the Council to the arrival of an investigative group of senior police, who would be in TCI for twelve weeks to review a number of murder cases.” The special team is being funded by TCIG. Also being reviewed is the illegal landings and troubles with poachers. The Council made up of the Governor, the Premier, the Border Control Minister, the Attorney General and the Police Commissioner notes that the total number of arrivals have been more limited in recent months, and were also considerably fewer in individual vessels. Still, it was explained that the British Ambassador to the Dominican Republic was arranging for a visit by the Governor and Minister of Border Control to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Santo Domingo to discuss illegal fishing and maritime issues.

first_img Apple Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Microsoft is jumping on the digital health bandwagon. Gety Images For the past couple years, tech companies like Apple, Google and even Facebook have been doing something seemingly against their interests: Encouraging us to stop using them. On Monday, Microsoft joined those companies by encouraging business people to be more mindful of their time too. The new features, built into the company’s Office 365 business productivity service for Windows PCs, Macs and mobile devices, tracks how people use their computers and then displays that information on a dashboard.For example, Microsoft’s software will soon start showing people how often they focused on a task and for how long. And it will also cheer them on if they successfully disconnected after work. You can even set goals for how often you have quiet days, Microsoft said. Read on ZDNet: Microsoft Build 2019: Azure is the star, and Windows is a bit player The new features, announced at the company’s Build developer conference in Seattle, are the latest in a growing trend of tech companies aiming to make us feel better about using their devices and services. They’re doing this by encouraging us to be more mindful about how much of our lives get taken up by technology in the first place. At Apple, this comes as part of a feature called Screen Time, which shows you how often you use your phone and what types of apps you’re using most. You can also set limits on how long you can use specific apps, like Facebook. Google’s Android software for phones and tablets has a tool called Digital Wellbeing that offers similar features. Even Facebook and Instagram, which are often derided as places people zone out and lose hours tapping and scrolling, have a screen time feature. For Microsoft, these features are part of a broader refinement to Microsoft’s Office 365 business software. The suite, which includes access to the company’s popular Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook apps, is used by 180 million people. Microsoft said the new features will be available “in the next few months.”  Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

first_imgRussell A. Neverdon, Sr.According to the director of the Baltimore City Board of Elections, the first draft of the 2014 general election ballot (Nov. 4) was due Aug. 22, and Russell A. Neverdon Sr. is still fighting to have his name included on it as a candidate for Baltimore City State’s Attorney.On Aug. 25, attorney Edward Smith Jr., filed paperwork with the Circuit Court of Baltimore City on behalf of Neverdon, a veteran Baltimore defense attorney who has been running an independent campaign for the State’s Attorney’s office.According to the Neverdon campaign, a judge has been assigned the case and the office of the Attorney General will represent the city Board of Elections. A pre-trial conference was set for this week.Neverdon claims he collected 5,686 petition signatures, which would be significantly more than the 4,160 needed for him to be included on November’s general election ballot along with the winner of the June 24 primary for state’s attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby (she handily defeated the incumbent Gregg Bernstein by almost 10 points).However, Board of Elections director Armstead B.C. Jones Sr. has declared only 3,099 of the signatures collected are valid.State election law requires names on a petition to exactly match names on voter registration rolls and each name has to be dated. According to the Board of Elections about 500 of the submitted signatures were names of people not registered to vote in Baltimore City and another 300 signatures were not dated.After Jones determined Neverdon was a little more than 1,000 signatures short, Mosby essentially declared victory in a tweet on Aug. 15.“The verification process has (been) completed and I’m confident in BOE’s (Board of Elections) analysis. Our democracy has played out and I’m excited about next steps,” Mosby said.Despite the ruling of the Board of Elections and Mosby’s declaration of victory, Neverdon presses on.“We’re going to challenge the constitutionality of it and some of the other discrepancies and put it in the hands of the court. But, at the same time that does not challenge the fact that I’m still a candidate,” Neverdon said. “The question becomes whether your name appears on the ballot and that’s what the signature campaign was about, getting my name to officially appear on the ballot,” added Neverdon who said he is not averse to continuing his candidacy via a write-in effort.The veteran defense attorney says he agreed to stay out of this year’s Democratic primary in an effort to prevent splitting the Black vote in the race to unseat Bernstein. He says he doesn’t regret the decision.“The (overarching) goal was to give Baltimore a chance, that if they wanted change that they could do it and I felt that with two candidates challenging the same person…there was a good chance that would have ended up being the result, the vote would have been split,” Neverdon said.  “I thought it was in the best interest of Baltimore City to… make sure that didn’t happen.”last_img read more
