Healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente, with Southern California headquarters in Pasadena, has issued practical tips for staying active in the heat while at the same time keeping yourself safe from heat stroke and heat exhaustion.“Temperatures are heating up and your body may be unable to properly cool itself, which could lead to a heat stroke or heat exhaustion. Know the signs and symptoms,” Kaiser Permanente said in an advisory on coping with the hot weather.The advisory said heat exhaustion occurs “when you are hot, sweat a lot, and do not drink enough to replace the lost fluids.”“Heat exhaustion is not the same as heatstroke, which is much more serious,” it continued. “Heatstroke can lead to problems with many different organs and can be life-threatening.”Signs of a rapidly progressing heatstroke could include unconsciousness for longer than a few seconds, convulsion, severe difficulty in breathing, a rectal temperature of over 104 degrees, confusion, severe restlessness or anxiety, a fast heart rate, reddish dry skin even in the armpits, and severe vomiting and diarrhea.A person in a heatstroke can either be sweating heavily or not sweat at all while feeling very hot, Kaiser Permanente said.Dr. Angeline Ong-Su, from Kaiser Permanente’s Panorama City Medical Center, said heatstroke can occur when the body reaches a temperature higher than 104 degrees.Anyone seeing symptoms of heatstroke in a family member or any other person should call 9-1-1 and should prepare to administer first aid, according to Kaiser Permanente’s online Health and Wellness page. The page also lists first aid steps in responding to heatstroke:• Move the person into a cool place, out of direct sunlight.• Remove the person’s unnecessary clothing, and place the person on his or her side to expose as much skin surface to the air as possible.• Cool the person’s entire body by sponging or spraying cold water, and fan the person to help lower the person’s body temperature.• Apply ice packs over as much of the body as you can.• Check the person’s rectal temperature and try to reduce it to 102°F or lower as soon as possible. Temperatures taken by mouth or in the ear are not accurate in this emergency situation.• If a child has stopped breathing, begin rescue breathing or CPR.• Do not give aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce a high body temperature that can occur with heatstroke. These medicines may cause problems because of the body’s response to heatstroke.• If the person is awake and alert enough to swallow, give the person fluids (32 fluid ounces to 64 fluid ounces over one to two hours) for hydration. Make sure the person is sitting up enough so that he or she does not choke.Kaiser Permanente said person suffering from heat exhaustion would usually experience a throbbing headache, vision changes, extreme nausea and vomiting and excessive sweating, or may be confused or altogether lose consciousness. The person could also experience muscle cramps and abdominal pains, and feel extremely tired.A person experiencing such symptoms should be moved indoors or to a shaded area, immersed in a cold- or ice-water tub, or sprayed with cool water and fanned.Other tips to respond to heat exhaustion include giving the person cool fluids, applying wet towels or ice packs to the neck, forehead and underarms, removing some of the clothing, and moving them to a cooled-off room where they can rest.For more tips and information about heat stroke and heat exhaustion, visit here.

Moreno motivated for Reds move

Posted on

first_img The future of Denmark captain Daniel Agger remains in doubt now Rodgers has six centre-backs to choose from but for one of that group the way forward is clear. Trabzonspor were keen on veteran Kolo Toure but the Ivory Coast international intends to see out the final year of his Liverpool contract. “Trabzonspor are interested in me but I have expressed my pleasure at being a Liverpool player,” Toure told Sport-Ivoire. “Yes, it is always a possibility to join a lower league for more playing time but I am a competitor and I decided to stay at Liverpool. “The season is full of matches in the league and Champions League and I know I have time to prove I’m still hungry, but I know I will not play every game, that’s for sure. “I had talks with the coach, who clearly indicated that I was part of his plans. “I feel good physically and at 33 years of age I am ready for any challenge. “I continue to work hard in training to keep up the momentum and it is why the coach wants to keep me at Liverpool, because I am a fighter. “I intend to start the season with the same goals: to enable the club to progress and to please all fans of Liverpool. “It is a privilege to be at Liverpool. I am very happy to wear the shirt of this legendary club. “The situation can change at any time but for the moment I am at Liverpool and I want to carry on with the club.” At the other end of the scale Rodgers has been impressed by the progress made by 19-year-old Raheem Sterling, who has carried on the impressive performances of the previous campaign into Liverpool’s pre-season games. “Something we said to Raheem when he first broke into the team and we’ve reiterated is that you have to have an identity as a player,” Rodgers told liverpoolfc.com. “His identity is he has to score goals and create goals. That’s what the job is. He scored 10 goals last year and this kid is only going to get better. “When you look at the finish against Manchester City in New York, how many times have we seen [Lionel] Messi produce a touch like that, taking it through bodies when it’s so tight in the box? “The great thing with watching him now is that he gets you off your seat. When he gets the ball you think ‘Something could happen here’. “He’s taking it all in his stride and now he’s in a good place with every part of his game. “It’s just about maintaining that commitment to his work. He’s still only 19, but in big games he’s performed and he’s a wonderful talent.” “I am living a strange situation because I’m leaving the club of my life,” Moreno told ABC de Sevilla. “I was always aware of the two teams (trying) to agree. I never got into that but Sevilla have understood that Liverpool’s offer was good and I am going. “(I have) many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain forever etched on me and I could not help but mourn (his departure) because I did not expect it. “First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans…all very complicated. “Liverpool are a great team and of course I’m super-motivated. I hope things go well.” Moreno’s arrival will be the eighth through the doors at Anfield this summer, although Belgium striker Divock Origi immediately returned to former club Lille on loan. Acquiring the defender, providing much-needed competition for Jose Enrique, will take manager Brendan Rodgers’ spending past the £100million mark this summer. However, that has been significantly offset by the £75million sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and offloading high-earning goalkeeper Jose Reina to Bayern Munich, while the imminent sale of Martin Kelly to Crystal Palace could bring in another £2million. Defender Alberto Moreno admits his departure from Sevilla has been emotional and complicated but he is relishing the prospect of joining Liverpool. The 22-year-old arrived at the club’s Melwood training ground on Wednesday to finalise a £12million move to Anfield after Sevilla relented in Liverpool’s long pursuit for the left-back. Moreno was pulled from his side’s starting line-up to face Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday night and bade a tearful farewell to fans and team-mates after the 2-0 defeat at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Suit against Mexico City cardinal dismissed

Posted on

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Plaintiff Joaquin Aguilar Mendez filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging that Rivera, who was then a bishop in Puebla state, transferred a priest to Los Angeles in 1988 for nine months even though he knew abuse allegations had been lodged against him. The priest, Nicolas Aguilar Rivera, is no relation to the cardinal or the plaintiff. The judge’s ruling also dismisses claims against the Mexican Diocese of Tehuacan, where the cardinal was bishop at the time he transferred the priest. Rivera’s spokesman, Hugo Valdemar, told The Associated Press in Mexico City that the cardinal was pleased with the judge’s decision. “We are happy and satisfied that the judge confirmed what we have always said: This isn’t a case to be judged in the United States,” Valdemar said, noting the plaintiff had every right to present a complaint in Mexico. A lawsuit accusing Mexico City Cardinal Norberto Rivera of conspiring with Roman Catholic officials in the United States to shelter a pedophile priest was dismissed Tuesday. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle found Rivera could not be held accountable in a U.S. court because the plaintiff didn’t have enough evidence against him, said Mike Finnegan, the plaintiff’s attorney. “It was a legal technicality,” he said. “It didn’t reach any of the merits of the case and it didn’t get to the key issues in the case, which is Cardinal Rivera’s complicity in sending (the priest) to the United States as a child molester.” Steve Selsberg, an attorney representing the Mexican cardinal in Los Angeles, said the judge found no evidence of conspiracy after reviewing a year’s worth of discovery collected by attorneys from both sides. While it is The Associated Press’ policy not to identify people who allege sexual abuse, Mendez chose to come forward with his story. He said Tuesday that he was disappointed in the ruling, but planned to have his U.S. attorneys appeal the case.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
