FAHC, CVMC use roving telemedicine unit

first_imgCentral Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) and Fletcher Allen Health Care, now affiliated as Fletcher Allen Partners (FAP), recently made a significant step in sharing resources while improving patient care without the need for transporting the patient to Burlington.  Intensivists, Dr. Gil Allen and Dr. Ryan Clouser, located at Fletcher Allen in Burlington, were able to consult with Dr. Craig from The Health Center in Plainfield while he was at the bedside of a patient in CVMC’s intensive care unit by means of a roving telemedicine unit.  Intensivists are physicians with specialized training in critical-care medicine who care for patients in intensive care units.Via telemedicine, CVMC physician Dr. Philip Brown (foreground), talks with colleagues at Fletcher Allen in Burlington (from left) Ryan Clouser, M.D., intensivist, Allen Mead (dark suit) faculty practice director, Steve Leffler, M.D., chief medical officer, Anne Dixon, MD division chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and Gilman Allen, MD intensivist. The roving unit is basically a computer monitor mounted on a cart with a camera on top that can transmit images and sound securely from one hospital to another.  The camera at CVMC is remotely controlled from Fletcher Allen and can pan the area and focus in on the patient or the physician. According to Dr. Phil Brown, CVMC vice president of medical affairs, the roving unit is easily moved and ‘we expect to use it in the ICU and the Emergency Department to help [Fletcher Allen physicians] evaluate patients [at CVMC].’Dr. Craig was able to present the case of a patient with multiple medical problems, providing background, current test results and the current status of the patient. The intensivists, in turn, asked questions and recommended next steps. The patient enthusiastically participated in the interview with Fletcher Allen intensivists and Dr. Craig. CVMC hospitalists and ICU nursing staff were also present. Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in caring for hospitalized patients, particularly those with complicated illnesses, on a daily basis. Dr. Sarah Swift, medical director of CVMC’s hospitalists, said ‘I am excited about this new capability. It gives our hospitalists the capability to communicate more directly with Fletcher Allen’s intensivists to consult on our more difficult cases. This will enable us to provide more care locally rather than transfer the patient.’ In the fall of 2011, CVMC entered into a formal affiliation agreement with Fletcher Allen to help develop a coordinated health system in Vermont that will build on our joint efforts to deliver high-quality care to Vermonters as efficiently as possible.  This agreement closely aligns the two organizations with state and federal health care reform agendas that promote enhanced integration.Implementing the roving telemedicine unit is part of an ICU improvement initiative, which is one of two quality improvement initiatives chosen by the FAP Quality Council for the upcoming year.CVMC 12.9.2011last_img read more

Leading investment firms push Texas regulators to crack down on natural gas flaring

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Investors managing more than $2 trillion are calling on Texas regulators to ban the routine burning of natural gas from shale fields, arguing that the energy industry hasn’t moved quickly enough to curb the controversial practice.AllianceBernstein, California State Teachers’ Retirement System and Legal & General Investment Management said they support eliminating gas flaring by 2025, according to a letter to the Texas Railroad Commission, which oversees oil and gas in the state. All three investors have been vocal on environmental issues before, but it’s the first time large institutional investors have taken such a public stance to the Texas regulator.“Actions of leading operators demonstrate the financial and technical viability of ending routine flaring,” the fund managers said in the letter, which was seen by Bloomberg. “It is clear, however, that voluntary actions alone have been insufficient to eliminate routine flaring industry-wide.”Investors and environmentalists are increasingly drawing attention to flaring because of its wastefulness and contribution to climate change. Flaring is utilized around the world as a way to deal with gas that producers can’t — or don’t want to — transport or store. Much of what’s burned, especially in the shale fields of Texas, is so-called associated gas coming from oil wells.The sheer abundance of gas in the Permian Basin of West Texas and New Mexico means local prices for the fossil fuel are often so low that it’s cheaper for shale operators to burn it rather than pay for pipeline connections and storage. Last year the Permian flared enough gas to supply 5 million U.S. homes, according to Oslo-based Rystad Energy.The Texas Railroad Commission has come under attack for allowing companies to effectively flare at will over the past decade as shale production boomed and helped make the U.S. the world’s top oil producer. The commission allows companies to flare during the start-up of wells and during emergencies. It also issues waivers that can be utilized right through the early and most productive phase of a shale well’s operation. After more than a year of public pressure, the commission recently proposed reducing the amount of flaring time allowed under some waivers and requiring operators to provide information on why they need to flare, but it set no targets and resisted calls for an outright ban. [Kevin Crowley]More: Investment giants urge Texas to end most natural gas flaring Leading investment firms push Texas regulators to crack down on natural gas flaringlast_img read more

Formula 1 World Championship could finish in January: Ferrari boss

first_imgLondon: As Formula 1 seeks to salvage the 2020 season affected severely by the coronavirus pandemic, the world championship could be extended into January next year, says Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto.”We’re assessing various ideas — races closer together, maybe doing two or three races in January, cancelling (Friday) practice,” he said as quoted by BBC.Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, Binotto said: “I have felt, along with the other team principals, that these are decisive moments.”We’ve decided to give complete freedom to (Formula 1 chairman Chase) Carey and the FIA to put together as soon as possible a timetable for us to get racing again, we are willing on our side.”Carey said in a statement last week that he “fully expected the season to start at some point this summer, with a revised calendar of between 15-18 races”.So far, the first eight races have been called off and the British Grand Prix in July is also under threat.The final race of this season is slated to be the Abu Dhabi GP on November 29.Formula 1 CEO Chase Carey had said earlier in the week that they are expecting to run a shortened season of 15-18 races once racing starts after the coronavirus pandemic, which has brought entire sporting calendar to a grinding halt.The original 2020 calendar had 22 races but the season is yet to start with the first eight postponed or cancelled and more likely to be called off amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.The campaign was supposed to begin March 15 with the Australian Grand Prix, but that race was called off hours before the scheduled start of free practice, followed in rapid succession by the postponement of the next six races on the schedule: Bahrain, Vietnam, China, the Netherlands, Spain and Monaco. On Monday, Azerbaijan Grand Prix, set for June 7 in Baku, was also postponed.

Tennis News ‘Not easy to dominate’ – Federer feels for younger generation

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Germany: Roger Federer expressed sympathy for the younger generation of tennis players on Sunday, saying that their successes outside of the Grand Slams were being overlooked. Federer, 37, won the ATP tournament in Halle for a record-stretching 10th time on Sunday, notching up his 102nd career singles title.He was one of two 37-year-olds to be playing in an ATP final on the same day, with veteran Spaniard Feliciano Lopez also in the singles final at Queen’s.ALSO READ | Federer survives scare from Tsonga, enters last eightFederer admitted that the continuing success of older players such as himself, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic had left little elbow room for the younger generation.“As long as me, Rafa and Novak are around it is not going to be easy for a young guy to come up and dominate,” he said.“Maybe it would be good for the sport if they did, I don’t know. People seem to like it as it is.”Yet Federer insisted that the success of players such as Stefanos Tsitsipas, Borna Coric and Karen Khachanov should not be overlooked.Coric, 22, beat Federer in the Halle final last year, while 23-year-old Khachanov broke into the top 10 this year after beating Djokovic in straight sets in the final of the Paris Masters last November.Federer argued that such triumphs were not being given enough recognition, and were being drowned out by the overwhelming focus on the four majors.“I think there is too much focus on the Grand Slams these days which isn’t fair,” said Federer.ALSO READ | Haris’ 89 off 59, Wahab Riaz’s 3/46 help Pakistan crash South Africa’s semis hopes“In my day, it was a huge success to win your first Masters 1000 tournament and break into the top 10.”“Khachanov beat Djokovic in the Paris final as well.

Wisconsin runs wild in win over Indiana

first_imgThe misty air soaking the 77,849 that filled Camp Randall wasn’t enough to suppress the early-game fireworks in the Wisconsin football team’s 51-3 rout of Indiana Saturday afternoon.Indiana (4-6, 2-4 Big Ten) came in boasting the country’s ninth-best scoring offense averaging 43 points a game, but was quickly grounded when Wisconsin freshman cornerback Sojourn Shelton  intercepted Hoosiers quarterback Nate Sudfeld on the Hoosiers’ fifth play from scrimmage.“I knew they were going to be a team that threw the ball deep,” Shelton said. “He threw it up. I saw it and at that point I just wanted to turn into the receiver.”Wisconsin’s (8-2, 5-1) game-opening turnover set the stage on the seven-yard line for senior running back James White who burst through the first level and was loose, bringing Camp Randall to its feet on a record-setting 93-yard touchdown run to give the Badgers a lead that they would never give back.“He broke it and away he went. It would be a great way to start the football game every week, so if we can continue that it would be good,” Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen said with a chuckle after the game.White’s explosive play on Wisconsin’s first drive was conceived on an adjustment made by the offensive-linemen and coaches in the tunnel before the game even started.“That first play, we actually made an adjustment as we were running out of the tunnel,” redshirt freshman Dan Voltz said. “My coach came over to me and we kind of switched up the ideas a little bit. It was just a zone play to the right, so nothing special but we just executed and it was a touchdown.”The 93-yard run by White broke the record for the longest run in Wisconsin history – previously held by Tom Brigham for a 91-yard run in 1963 – and put the senior over the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in his career.“It feels good,” White said of reaching 1,000 yards rushing this season. “It’s probably every running backs goal to get 1,000 yards … I mean, it’s a good accomplishment but we still have a lot of things to do out here the next two weeks.”The defense put Wisconsin in a position to put Indiana in a deep hole early after Sudfeld turned the ball over on consecutive plays on a fumbled snap that was recovered by senior outside linebacker Brendan Kelly on the Hoosiers’ own 14-yard line.“It started well,” Kelly said. “Two turnovers in the first quarter is always going to take the wind out of the sails of an offense.”This time it was redshirt sophomore running back Melvin Gordon’s turn to take a trip to the end zone for the first time in three weeks, putting Wisconsin up 14-0 less than three minutes into the game.Sophomore kicker Jack Russell kept the scoring party going for the Badgers making two-consecutive field goals to put Wisconsin up 20-0 and nailing three field goals to surpass his career total of two field goals made coming into the game.After the Hoosiers held the Badgers without a touchdown for nearly 23 minutes, Wisconsin offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig decided to get creative with a jet-sweep hand off to senior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis who took it to the end zone on a 32-yard run for his first rushing touchdown of his career, putting Wisconsin up 27-0.“It’s always fun to getting the ball on reverses, bubbles things like that,” Abbrederis said. “Whenever you get the ball in space you have to make something happen with it, so it’s fun doing it.”Abbrederis would get his chance to run the ball again on a similar play call that saw two players sweeping in different directions for the Badgers. This time the senior receiver would run for a 49-yard touchdown to give Wisconsin 37 points.While the offense was taking care of business moving the ball, the Wisconsin defense was taming Indiana’s usually wild offense.The Hoosiers’ best chance to find the end zone came midway through the third quarter with the ball on Wisconsin’s one-yard line, but Indiana’s second quarterback Tre Roberson was unable to get the play off in time over the noise of the crowd giving Indiana a delay of game penalty that would doom the drive to just a field goal.“It was a big stand there. It was important for them to get the stop at that point,” Andersen said. “They take great pride in the three points that they gave up today against this offense is a tremendous accomplishment. That was a big time defensive stop.”Three points would be all Indiana could muster as the Wisconsin defense continued to smother its opponent, snapping the Hoosiers’ record-streak of 10 games with at least 28 points.With the game well in hand entering the fourth quarter, Andersen began to clear his bench, but that didn’t slow down the offensive attack with freshman running back Corey Clement taking the reins and rushing for 109 yards and two touchdowns.Clement’s 100-yard effort in the fourth quarter pushed Wisconsin to 554 yards on the ground in 50 carries, which is good for an 11.1 average per rush.Moving forward, Wisconsin gets ready for the border battle with Minnesota, giving Andersen his first taste of the battle for Paul Bunyan’s ax.“It’s rivalry week,” Andersen said. “Here we go.”last_img read more

Syracuse’s struggle for consistency culminates in season-ending 3-1 loss to Akron

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ UPDATED: Nov. 19, 2018 at 11:40 a.m.HAMILTON, N.Y. — Sondre Norheim stuck his arms up and shrugged his shoulders. Just a few minutes ago the Orange had been thrown into desperation mode. They had a season to save, down a goal, and little time to do it. Now, the dagger had been stabbed in its chest.An Akron offensive player trailed behind his teammates and pumped his fist as he started toward the Syracuse goal, the keeping place of the last ball to touch an Akron forward’s foot. Syracuse stalled. Then, its season flashed before them. The Orange (7-6-4, 1-4-3 Atlantic Coast) lost, 3-1, to Akron (11-6-2, 1-2-1 Mid American) in the second round of the NCAA men’s soccer tournament. The Orange’s season ended at the hands of a team it had already beaten. In a game with the same amount of goals. Head coach Ian McIntyre said Akron didn’t do anything different, either. SU’s season-long struggles to find consistency between games finally fell on its head. By nature of the same end of game struggles that plagued it in each of the past two seasons, the Orange dropped another game. Many held their hands over their faces to shield the harsh reality: it was over.“There’s a finality in every college game. That’s the emotionally challenging part of college athletics, what makes it so special.” McIntyre said. “You rent your jersey for four years. And then it’s time to graduate.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse forward Severin Soerlie consoles Jonathan Hagman after the game. Paul Schlesinger | Staff PhotographerFollowing a loss to Virginia Tech earlier in the season, Syracuse retreated to their hotel. The early season woes had reached their breaking point. It wasn’t the loss, it was the way it lost. Syracuse took Virginia Tech to double overtime scoreless. In the final two minutes, the Hokies’ Nico Quashie broke through the Syracuse defense for a doorstep goal. “The worst way to lose,” Jonathan Hagman said.Players threw their belongings on the sideline. Some dug their faces into their jersey and dropped to the ground. Others cried. The Orange returned to its hotel with the frustration flowing. It needed a night to cool down, to figure things out, but Hagman couldn’t sleep. The season started to form an eerie similarity to a year prior. Syracuse had talent, but ends of games it faltered. Early-season losses dragged. SU tried to find the positives in its draws. Syracuse hadn’t won a conference game in almost two years, and nothing — physical play or a personnel change — provided any immediate answer.As Syracuse learned about itself, its record felt the burden. The Orange had piled up four losses to that point, and were on its way to its second straight losing season.But the next day was different. Enough was enough, Hagman said.“I’m tired of saying that we are doing a good job but we’re not getting the result,” Hagman said to goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert. And Hilpert sought to find a solution. He scoured many members of the team and asked for what the Orange can change. A different mindset? A new approach? He caught people at the hotel, and walked up the rows of the bus on the way back to Syracuse.Hilpert reported his findings back to McIntyre: SU is too good to be playing this poorly, they said. Syracuse didn’t need to change, it just needed to realize.“It wasn’t like any tactical thing,” Hagman said. “We just decided: we’re not losing.”Hugo Delhommelle stood alone on the field after the Orange left the field. Paul Schlesinger | Staff PhotographerAgainst Akron in October, the mood shifted. Norheim felt the difference. Many others did too. The early part of the game seemed tense, Norheim said, but then Hagman got the first goal to cross the line. Then another. And another. In the “turning point” of the season, Syracuse was dominant. And for the first time all season, it followed through.It ripped three-straight wins. It knocked off then-No. 1 Wake Forest at home. Then it dominated Ohio State a similar way. There was a different sense among the SU players. The Orange didn’t squander big moments, it rose above them. Many players looked back at the season-shifting run. Against Virginia Tech in the first round of the ACC tournament, many players shrugged off the similarities. Hilpert, when prompted of the possibility of matching up with Akron again at Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament selection watch party, grinned.“It just makes you more confident,” Hilpert said. With Wake Forest on the other side of their own bracket, just one win by both teams away from a rematch, the prophecy seemed real.The Orange started off on the offensive. John-Austin Ricks picked off multiple passes early on in the game. One led to a chance by Ryan Raposo in front of the goal. The freshman received the ball off the right-center of the goal and fired a shot off the head of an Akron defender. The ensuing cross deflected wide and SU worked the ball in to Raposo for another. Hugo Delhommelle, who hasn’t scored a goal all season, shot more times than he had in any game all year. When the ball finally found its way near the Syracuse goal, Kamal Miller’s foot kept it away.After an early Akron goal, Djimon Johnson placed his arm around Hagman’s shoulder, who struggled to keep his head out of his jersey. Johnson yelled and Hagman jumped. The next play, Syracuse took it upfield. It took its chances: Massimo Ferrin’s shot was saved by Akron goalkeeper Ben Lundt. Hagman tacked on another. Then, Ferrin led a one-man break up the field, faked right, faked left and, with the swift move of his left foot, gave the Orange life. “With 25 minutes left,” McIntyre said. “I felt good about the game.”Jonathan Hagman trailed behind his Syracuse teammates. Paul Schlesinger | Staff PhotographerBut the script flipped. A step over move that works frequently for Ferrin, in which he kicks the ball behind a defender then jumps laterally the the other side, was halted multiple times. Akron was crisp with their passes and powerful with their delivery. Delhommelle wanted to score Sunday. He wanted to keep Syracuse in it. He wanted to provide the opening push of a run of which the Orange had already some familiarity. After Akron’s second goal, Syracuse pushed its players forward. All season SU had searched for one play to shift the momentum. But again and again, it came up empty.“I really thought that we had them,” Delhommelle said.Hagman fell to the ground and put his hands over his face to shield the tears. The senior, who was not made available after the game, went into the locker room as Delhommelle stood at center field with his hands over his face. Inside the locker room, some sat in the corner and didn’t move. Hagman walked out with his face red. Miller and Hilpert, who were also not made available, walked out with their eyes still watery. An SU athletics employee asked Hilpert to keep his head up. He nodded and walked off the field, never to return in a Syracuse uniform.The entire SU contingent watched in disbelief. The Orange ended its season, like it had so many games earlier in the year, without an answer.After the game, McIntyre stood adjacent to the SU locker room. The snow picked up and formed a pile on top of his head. He looked back at the game, and at the careers of some of his seniors. All season long, he had preached to them what it’d taken them so long to realize. As it settled in players’ minds at the start of Syracuse’s mid-season win-streak, losses became easier to gloss over. The Orange can beat any team in the country, they thought. They’d proved it, and a loss is just a setback. There was always another game to look forward to.“That second goal was important, wasn’t it?” McIntyre asked. He didn’t pause and wait for an answer. He already knew it. Syracuse won’t have a chance to correct this. It’s done.CORRECTION: In a previous version of this post, Hendrik Hilpert was misquoted. The Daily Orange regrets this error.

Teisha Hyman emerges as key bench player with conference play ahead

first_imgWhen Teisha Hyman checked into Nov. 24’s game against then-No. 1 Oregon, she wasn’t worried about facing reigning Wooden Award winner Sabrina Ionescu or making a mistake that could get her removed from the game by SU head coach Quentin Hillsman. As the second quarter progressed, Hyman said she wasn’t even nervous in her first regular season appearance. “My mindset was don’t get scored on,” Hyman said. “Play good defense.”In five minutes against Ducks, Hyman looked assertive — she played point guard, pushed the ball up the court, took two shots and didn’t get scored on. She fit into Syracuse’s (5-4) fast-paced system perfectly. In her four games since, Hyman has emerged as a key player off the bench, averaging 9.8 points in 19.3 minutes and shooting 6-for-12 from behind the arc, showing flashes of what her game could become. Despite Hyman’s lack of Division I experience, the freshman’s decision-making on the court has been swift. She isn’t afraid to pull the trigger — she’s taken 32 shots, including 13 3-point attempts — and always looks to initiate transition opportunities herself or with outlet passes. Of SU’s non-centers, Hyman has the best field goal percentage (46.9%). “She’s very versatile,” Hillsman said. “She can score from all three levels. She can score in the midrange and she can finish at the rim. That’s what you want your guards to be complete players, and she’s a very complete guard.” AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHyman’s breakout performance came in the Orange’s 82-48 win over UMBC on Sunday, when she dropped 16 points, three rebounds and three assists with no turnovers in just 15 minutes. Her plus-25 plus-minus was more than double any other Syracuse substitute.Casey Darnell | Digital EditorHyman’s highlight play came in the final seconds of the third quarter when she quickly dribbled the ball up, feigned like she was driving, then nailed a stepback 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded to give SU a 25-point lead.She continued to show her complete skills in the fourth quarter when she grabbed a defensive rebound and went straight to the rim, euro-stepping around UMBC’s O’lesheya Braxton and scooping in a reverse layup. After the game, she didn’t want to talk about her career-best statline or highlight plays. Instead, she said she was disappointed by her two airballs. Hillsman, though, praised the freshman.“Any time she gets in space, she can get by most people in the country that’s guarding her,” Hillsman said after Sunday’s win.Hyman missed the first three games of the season due to a medial meniscus tear suffered over the summer, forcing Hillsman to use a combination of Alisha Lewis and Elemy Colomé at backup point guard. Her first full practice with the Orange came two days prior to the Oregon game. SU guard Gabrielle Cooper said Hyman pays extreme attention to detail in practice and constantly asks questions about plays and defensive schemes so she won’t be confused in games. Hyman said Syracuse’s “system” has been the hardest thing to learn.“We have a lot of plays, we have a lot of defenses,” Cooper said. “We switch up defenses mid-possession. That can be kind of confusing. (Hyman’s) always trying to make sure she knows so she’s able to translate that into the game.”Casey Darnell | Digital EditorFollowing Oregon, Hyman played 24 minutes in back-to-back nights against Houston and then-No. 3 Stanford in the Greater Victoria Invitational. “She was a little sore,” Hillsman said, and they agreed to keep her out against Green Bay the following night as a precautionary measure. In that game, three SU players, including starting point guard Kiara Lewis, fouled out in a 79-73 overtime loss. Hillsman said “it would have been nice” to have Hyman available, as she would have been Lewis’ replacement in overtime.Five days later, Hyman was deemed fit to play against then-No. 24 Michigan and proceeded to go 3-for-3 from behind the arc with an assist in the first quarter. She played just seven minutes after that as Lewis primarily ran the point in the second half and overtime.Even if Hyman continues her efficient play, she likely won’t be nudging veteran guards Lewis and Cooper out of the starting lineup anytime soon. The White Plains, New York native has proved she can be an important piece off the bench as the Orange try to claw back into the top 25, and, for now, she’s content with that. “The more comfortable she gets and the more minutes she gets, she’s going to be really good for us,” Hillsman said.
