Remote area critical patients to be moved to San José hospital by

first_imgNo related posts. Last Friday, the first critical patient, who had a cardiac problem, was flown in from Santa Maria de Dota. Patients living in remote areas will arrive at the Calderón Guardia Hospital by helicopter.This was done through an agreement between the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS) and the Ministry of Public Security (MSP). The objective of this agreement is to shorten the time of transfer of patients in a critical health situation.For the landing of the helicopters, the hospital prepared an area on the northeast side, where the patient is admitted directly to the Emergency Service.The patient was treated and stabilized in Santa Maria de Dota and then transferred to the medical center where he is under observation and waiting for a series of tests to define his diagnosis.According to Donald Corella, head of the Emergency Department, the Calderón Guardia Hospital conducted a series of trainings and drills in conjunction with the Ministry of Security, which allowed the so-called Golden Code to be activated within the hospital.This Golden Code applies a series of protocols to be prepared either to receive a patient in a critical health situation from a remote location or that the hospital staff is transferred by helicopter to the hospital of the care network.

The NFC West is not exactly a division loaded with

first_imgThe NFC West is not exactly a division loaded with top-flight QBs, though it was generally thought that the Rams’ Sam Bradford was the best of the bunch.However, after a week where the second year pro completed just 17 of 30 passes for 188 yards and zero touchdowns it seems as if the gap may be closing, through little fault of his own.“I was quite honestly disappointed with the performance of Sam Bradford last week against the Philadelphia Eagles,” ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Jaworski pointed to Bradford’s supporting cast as reason to doubt him, saying the Rams have “maybe the slowest receiving core in the National Football League.”Harsh words, but of the wideouts who caught a pass last week, none are exactly household names. And, to top it off, the team lost Danny Amendola to a dislocated elbow.“Then you look at Jason Smith, the right tackle, he got hammered last week and when you look at Bradford he had a very difficult time setting his back foot and delivering the football,” Jaworski added. “He struggled because of the pass protection.”Nobody seems to be saying Bradford is a bad QB, just that his supporting cast could hold him back. One week in Arizona’s Kevin Kolb does not appear to have a similar problem, as he threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns.“After one game, I would say right now Kevin Kolb may be the most stable quarterback in the division,” Jaworski said.

Rep Hauck invites residents to think local during Buy Michigan Week

first_img30Jul Rep. Hauck invites residents to think local during Buy Michigan Week Categories: Hauck News,News Legislator: Local business serves as key cog of state’s economyState Rep. Roger Hauck today encouraged residents in Isabella and Midland Counties to consider buying locally made products and services during Buy Michigan Week – running through Aug. 5.Purchasing goods and services locally creates a positive impact on a region through small business growth, more available jobs and strengthened state and local economies.“Around 50 cents of every dollar spent locally will stay local – helping provide money to our schools, roads, first responders and other areas of need. When that money is not leaving the state, it can make a huge difference on the economic health of our communities,” said Hauck, of Mt. Pleasant. “Michigan has a tremendous track record as a producer, and this week is a great opportunity to bring awareness to what we can do when we invest in our state’s industries as consumers.”In October, the Michigan House passed a resolution supporting “Buy Nearby” – an annual statewide promotion for shopping at local retail outlets instead of alternatives online. The Buy Nearby project estimated that if Michigan residents made a concerted effort to buy locally, an additional $9 billion in economic activity would follow and nearly 74,000 jobs could be created. Up to $2.5 billion in additional wages could be cultivated through the new jobs, per the project’s report.In recognition of their work, Hauck plans on distributing and delivering tributes to local businesses in the area as Buy Michigan Week kicks into gear.last_img read more

Amazon has pulled off a coup by signing up directo

first_imgAmazon has pulled off a coup by signing up director Woody Allen’s first ever television series.Allen will write and create the series with Amazon Studios, with on-demand service Amazon Prime Instant Video acting as the distribution platform.“I don’t know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I’m not sure where to begin,” said Allen, who is best known for films such as Annie Hall, Blue Jasmine and Vicky Christina Barcelona. “My guess is that [Amazon Studios’ VP] Roy Price will regret this.”The series has received a full season order, which separates it from most other original Amazon series in that they are usually put through an online pilot process that takes into account customer feedback.The show will debut concurrently in the US, UK and Germany at an unspecified date.“Woody Allen is a visionary creator who has made some of the greatest films of all-time, and it’s an honour to be working with him on his first television series,” said Price.“From Annie Hall to Blue Jasmine, Woody has been at the creative forefront of American cinema and we couldn’t be more excited to premiere his first TV series exclusively on Prime Instant Video next year.”Amazon Studios counts series such as Mozart in the Jungle and Golden Globe-winning Transparent among its biggest TV efforts to date.last_img read more

Tim Davie Profit and revenue have declined at BBC

first_imgTim DavieProfit and revenue have declined at BBC Worldwide in the wake of the sale of a chunk of the BBC America cable channel.The absence of a chunk of revenue from BBC America, 49.9% of which was sold to AMC for US$200 million (€180 million) earlier this year, caused the year-on-year revenue and profit reverses the commercial arm of the BBC said this morning.Headline 2014/15 revenues of £1 billion (€1.4 billion) were down 3.9% and headline profit decreased 11.9%, taking the annual total to £138.6 million. Worldwide said the declines were caused by the absence of BBC America revenues for most of the second half of the year.Comparing like for like revenues across its ongoing operations, it said there was a 0.4% increase in the £948 million recorded, and a 4.1% hike in profit of £127.1 million. Digital sales, advertising revenue across its channels and the contribution of UKTV were cited as key drivers.BBC Worldwide CEO Tim Davie said the AMC-BBC America deal “significantly enhanced future prospects for our BBC America channel, while also enabling us to boost shareholder returns for the year”.The proceeds of the AMC deal helped Worldwide generate a record amount of cash for the BBC, with an annual increase of 30.3%, taking the return to the Corporation to £226.5 million. Worldwide also contributed a greater amount in commissioning spend, becoming a production or distribution partner on various BBC shows, and in turn funding, or deficit-funding, a chunk of their budget.Reacting to the 2014/15 annual report, which was published today, BBC director general Tony Hall (pictured left, above) said it was a year of “positive progress at BBC Worldwide” against a “backdrop of market transformation that presented some challenges”.Hailing Worldwide the most successful commercial arm of any pubcaster in the world, he added that the Corporation wants it to return a cumulative £1 billion across the next five years.“Although commercial returns are a small part of the BBC’s funding mix, we are nonetheless determined to maximise their impact,” Hall said. “Therefore, looking ahead to the next phase of the BBC’s development, and a new charter period, it is the board’s aim to sustain annual financial returns at around this new level, even without the one-off benefit of BBC America proceeds.“We are therefore looking to BBC Worldwide to generate around £1 billion in returns for the Corporation in the five years starting from 2014/15 – an increase of almost one quarter on the previous half-decade.”Tim Davie (right) said that the business had “taken steps to drive innovation and underpin the sustainability” in the 2014/15 reporting period including investing in indies and relaunching its channel offering. “This is essential work in the context of a global media market undergoing structural and systemic changes, some of which constrain our trading and outlook in certain areas,” he said.In its last report, Worldwide reported a downturn in US sales. In its latest annual update said digital sales eclipsed linear for the first time in North America. Overall regional sales were £299.9 million compared to £342.5 million a year earlier. Profit was £32.9 million against £44.3 million across the same period.In the UK, headline 2014/2015 sales were £361.8 million compared with £362.2 million a year earlier and profit was £52.7 million against £56.2 million.There was growth in terms of Worldwide’s Australia and New Zealand business with 2014/15 revenues of £81.9 million compared to £76 million in 2013/14. Profit was £16.3 million against £13.3 million a year earlier.last_img read more

Liberty Global CEO Mike Fries Liberty Global rema

first_imgLiberty Global CEO, Mike FriesLiberty Global remains committed to the UK market and remains confident about its long-term growth prospects despite hitting a “speed bump” that had contributed to share-price volatility recently, according to president and CEO Mike Fries.Speaking to investors at the company’s annual shareholders meeting, Fries said that after averaging 20% return on equity for the last eight years, “there has been more volatility in our share price than we’re used to and like you we do not like it”.Fries said that some of the volatility was related to the UK market. He said Virgin Media had outperformed the sector, but that it had not met expectations for various reasons.Fries said the conditions that had led to the business delivering a positive return largely continue to exist today “with the exception of Brexit, of course…and movements in inflation and consumer discretionary income”.He said that shareholders had got “a little skittish” about the UK market. He said that the business continued to grow, and this is what investors should focus on. He said that Liberty Global was a relatively heavily leverged business, which contributed to shares volatility on the downside as well as on the upside.“We are about creating value over the long term and…nothing has changed our view,” he said. He said he believed the UK remained a healthily competitive and “rational” market.“I would characterise this as a speed bump,” he said, rather than a major obstacle to growth.Answering a question on Brexit, Fries said that there had been “no direct impact as such” but that the economic indicators were moving possibly in the wrong direction to some extent, with inflation up and discretionary spending down. He said Liberty wanted to “give people more for more”, increasing prices as it improved its offering.Fries said that Virgin Media is “not hunkering down or playing defence”. He said it was investing in products and delivering higher speeds, was investing in quad-play through building a substantial mobile play, was focusing on realising efficiency and “most important, expanding our footprint” to reach an additional homes.Fries said that there had been good results through to the end of Q1 from Project Lightning, the Virgin Media network expansion project, with higher RGUs and new customers.Fries said that Liberty Global had “retooled” the project following problems that had let to the number of homes connected being overstated at the start of this year, and changed management where necessary, as well as revising the company’s go-to-market approach. He said that penetration in new build areas was meeting expectations.Fries said that Liberty Global has continued to grow in other European markets.Referring to Liberty’s plans in the Latin American and Caribbean market, where it has acquired Caribbean operator CWC, Fries said that the company had revamped CWC’s management and turned things around quickly. He said he was still hopeful that the overall Latin American business could be spun off by the end of this year. The company is currently traded via a tracking stock.Fries said that there would be considerable opportunities to grow in the Latin American and Caribbean region through acquisition, and having a separate stock market listing would enable this. He said that there would nevertheless be close cooperation between the Latin American business and Europe, particularly over things such as procurement.Answering a question on CWC, Fries said that “the business that was handed over to us” wasn’t quite as promised, and Liberty had to restate some of its accounts. “It is a complicated business. We love the underlying opportunity,” he said, in a region with low broadband penetration.Fries said that Liberty had always been focused on creating long-term shareholder value, despite short-term issues.He said that Liberty was capable of innovating at a speed that would keep it ahead of the competition. He said Liberty Global was on track to continue delivering cash after 48 straight quarters of continued cash-flow growth.last_img read more
