first_imgBy Dialogo February 17, 2012 On February 15, the keel was laid for the patrol vessel Miramar, at a ceremony presided over by the general director for materials of the Brazilian Navy, Admiral Arthur Pires Ramos, at the Estaleiro Ilha S.A. (EISA) shipyard in Rio de Janeiro. This is the third patrol vessel in a series of five vessels from this shipyard under contract with the Naval Engineering Directorate. The Miramar is part of a series of 27 ships to be built in the immediate future, with the following characteristics: – Length overall: 54.20 m; – Moulded breadth: 8.00 m; – Maximum draft: 2.48 m; – Full-load displacement: 500 t; – Maximum sustained speed: 21 knots; – Crew: 35 + extra accommodations for 8; and – Weaponry: one 40-mm cannon and two 20-mm machine guns The first two ships in the class, ordered from the INACE shipyard, the patrol vessels Macaé and Macau, have already been incorporated into the Brazilian Navy and will be based in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Natal, respectively. These vessels are designed to patrol Brazilian territorial waters, performing a variety of tasks, including, in conflict situations, conducting surveillance and defense of the coast, shoreline maritime areas, and oil platforms at sea and contributing to port defense; and in peacetime, promoting monitoring aimed at securing the resources of Brazil’s territorial waters, contiguous zone, and exclusive economic zone, repressing illicit activities (illegal fishing, smuggling, drug trafficking, and pollution of the maritime environment), contributing to the security of shoreline facilities and maritime platforms against acts of sabotage, and conducting search-and-rescue operations in Brazil’s area of responsibility. We can appreciate it and say that the Brazilian naval engineering and Brazil Navy are very proud of the compact and modern construction characteristics of NPa Miramar Project which are very appropriate for the needs of the Country. We hope the Project in the future will be evaluated favorably by The American and Africa navies.last_img read more

That’s why I took him and threw him out of the club. I was the bouncer, picked him and tossed him out of the club on that one touchdown.”Colts safety Sergio Brown’s apparent verbal jibes saw Gronkowski shove him off the field when blocking for one New England touchdown in 2014.”All the linemen are sexy, they’ve got that sexy body and everything. They did a great job. They’re the ones who should get laid tonight, those linemen.”Offensive linemen are often the forgotten men in the NFL. Not for Gronkowski, who was sure to make sure they got some love after a win over the Bills in 2014.”Sean, need some help?”White House visits became a regular occurrence due to the Patriots’ multiple Super Bowl wins and during one trip in 2017, Gronk crashed the daily briefing of then-press secretary Sean Spicer to see if the under-pressure official needed some assistance.”I’m a shark expert. I heard there’s some great whites out there. I haven’t seen any great whites yet. They don’t know me yet. I only swam with tigers. So maybe I’ll go say, ‘Hi’ to my friends.” But Gronkowski was remembered for more than just being one of Tom Brady’s favorite receivers.Here, we take a look at some of his most memorable quotes.”I’m addicted to working out. Before I go to bed, I’ve got to hit my sit-ups and push-ups. While I’m watching a TV show, I do push-ups. I even watch SpongeBob still, so there we go.”Gronkowski’s physicality set him apart in the NFL — and it turns out a cartoon character helped when he needed to get the reps in. View this post on Instagram Rob Gronkowski was not just an All-Pro tight end, he was also a self-declared chick magnet, shark expert and SpongeBob SquarePants aficionado.The 29-year-old announced his retirement from the NFL on Sunday, bringing an end to a nine-year career spend entirely in New England that included three Super Bowl victories with the Patriots. Happy Easter everyone! Just crafting up my giant Easter Egg!A post shared by Rob Gronkowski (@gronk) on Apr 1, 2018 at 9:32am PDT”My screen name in fourth grade on AIM was ‘chickmagnet4life’, so it started in fourth grade…and that’s for life!”Renowned for his offseason partying, Gronkowski claims his reputation as a ladies’ man was cultivated early on.”My drink is usually vodka with water because it gets you hydrated and drunk at the same time.”Gronk has partied on buses and boats, yet he seemingly never forgets to stay hydrated.”At one time I wanted to be a WWE wrestler. I still do. I want to go in the ring once and mess around and jump off the ropes and do a Stone Cold stunner.”A dream was realized at WrestleMania 33 when Gronkowski entered the ring and shoved over Jinder Mahal after he had taunted the Patriot. A more prominent role in the WWE could be on the cards now he has left the NFL.”In high school I was scared to dance. I was shy at dancing. I practice at home, I was practicing in the mirror. Dancing everywhere.”The “Gronk Spike” was the tight end’s customary celebration, though he was never afraid to show off his “moves,” which apparently needed honing at home first. Last offseason Gronkowski went swimming with tiger sharks, which made him the perfect player to talk to when great whites were spotted in the local area.”That little nutcracker dude that’s guarding the house! I like how he just sits there and stays still.”That was Gronk’s description of a member of The Queen’s Guard, who he was trying to emulate with his endzone celebration at Wembley in 2012.last_img read more

Yet, these problems are at the root of poor health in many low-income communities. A new article published today in the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved describes a new approach to educating medical students about the real world.The course, developed by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, apprentices medical students to community health workers (CHWs) in inner city Philadelphia. CHWs are trusted laypeople who come from the local community, hired and trained by healthcare organizations to support high-risk patients.By pairing up with community health workers, students had the opportunity to understand life from a different perspective. Most students had not experienced poverty or trauma in their own lives. The course also helped students to overcome implicit bias and discrimination, which often permeates healthcare experiences.”Thirty-year-old, uninsured, and taking street Xanax. You automatically think . . . difficult patient,” explained one student. “She had little dreads and they were dyed red. And the community health worker loved it. She was like ‘oh my god, your hair is so cute!’ Then the patient got this big smile on her face and was so willing to talk to us. My whole impression of her changed from this really difficult patient to just a sweetheart.”The Institute of Medicine and the Association of American Medical Colleges recently recommended medical schools should train students in skills related to community engagement, including the “cultural humility” needed to deal non-judgmentally with patients from very different walks of life. So far, relatively few med school programs aim to provide that training. When they do, it is often through lectures and reading assignments more than hands-on experience.Related StoriesHome-based support network helps stroke patients adjust after hospital dischargeSleep disorders in patients with low back pain linked to increased healthcare visits, costsAMSBIO offers new, best-in-class CAR-T cell range for research and immunotherapyPenn’s early experience with this teaching experiment has been so promising that the course is now a permanent part of the curriculum, and is being expanded for nursing and social work students. The Penn Center for Community Health Workers is building on this course to develop online cultural competency training for students and even practicing clinicians.”In medical school, you learn about antibiotics and MRIs. There is a lot more to health than that,” said lead author Shreya Kangovi, MD, MS, director of the Penn Center for Community Health Workers. “Unless we train our future healthcare professionals to understand what life and health are like for real people, we’ll be failing them.”The article reports that in interviews, participating students indicated that the rotation generally met its goal of imparting community engagement skills. Students showed a better understanding of the life circumstances – from homelessness to the difficulty of getting a taxi in inner-city neighborhoods – that affected patients’ health care experiences. They also seemed to develop more confidence and competence at overcoming those challenges, as well as a greater appreciation for what community health workers do. To date, 60 students have participated in the rotation.Kangovi and colleagues hope that the new rotation will serve as a model for other teaching hospitals that want to prepare students to care for low-income patient populations.​last_img read more
