DR. ROGER YOUNG ELECTED TO NATIONAL BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF MARCH OF DIMESBurlington, Vermont – Roger C. Young, MD, PhD, Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and Director of Vermont Perinatal Care at Fletcher Allen Health Care, has been elected to the national Board of Trustees of the March of Dimes Foundation, during their annual summer meeting. March of Dimes trustees, who serve as volunteers, represent the public in governing the organization and advancing its mission and serve five-year terms. “Dr. Young is committed to the core mission of the March of Dimes. We look forward to working with him over the next five years,” said Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, President of the March of Dimes. Dr. Young has reviewed scientific grant applications for the March of Dimes for six years, and has been a member of the organization’s Scientific Advisory Committee since 2006. During his career, which also has included academic appointments at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center; Medical University of South Carolina; and Duke Medical Center, Dr. Young has conducted basic and translational research, culminating in a five-year National Institute of Health-sponsored research project on the physiology of the uterus. He is a recognized leader in the field of uterine physiology of pregnancy, and has a long-range goal of decreasing the rising rates of premature birth in the United States – also a component of the mission of the March of Dimes. He has published 41 peer-reviewed articles and dozens of abstracts, and has presented at numerous national and international meetings. He has also co-edited one book. Dr. Young is a graduate of McDaniel College, Western Maryland College, and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He and his wife, Dr. Kathryn Schwarzenberger, have three children and live in South Burlington, Vermont. In accepting the new position, Dr. Young noted: “I am honored to have been elected to the March of Dimes Board of Trustees. One of the major goals of the March of Dimes is to reduce the rate of preterm births, reduce the complications of prematurity, and help each baby get the best possible start on life. Despite decades of research, prematurity rates are sadly rising in the US, and it feels as if we are losing the battle. The March of Dimes has recently renewed its efforts, and stated bold new goals, to reduce prematurity. To accomplish these goals will require a broad spectrum of help – from volunteers, administrators, businesses, and most importantly, individual contributors. It is a wonderful organization, and I am looking forward to helping in any way.” The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies(r), the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. In Vermont, the March of Dimes is investing over $935,000 in 2008 to further its mission within local communities, including two major research projects at UVM College of Medicine and several local community projects.

Kaka admits he had problems with Mourinho at Real Madridby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveKaka has spoken of his problems with Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.The Ballon d’Or winner admits he had issues with ‘The Special One.'”I was convinced that Real Madrid would be good, I think I was persistent, I got as far as I could, to my limit,” he said to Grande Circulo de SporTV.”My problem at Madrid was continuity first and then the coach, as I spent three years trying to convince Mourinho that I should have more opportunities but it was his choice, it was out of my control.”The first year I had a hip problem, then the adductor and I was operated on.”I was out of action for six months and when I returned, it was Mourinho.”I was an excellent professional, and today I can say with great joy that I can go to Real Madrid and the doors are always open.”Florentino says that I was one of the most professional athletes in the club.”Once Mourinho left, however, things didn’t get any better for the Brazilian.”In the 2013/14 season, with the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti, Florentino Perez wanted to renew the team with players from the academy and new players, and Ancelotti was very clear with me.”He told me that the president had asked for these people to play and I told him that I had to play because I wanted to be at the World Cup, so the best option was to leave. “With football being such a small world, it was inevitable that Kaka would cross paths with Mourinho again.”There’s no problem,” he added.”I went to Manchester to a sponsor’s event, I stayed at the same hotel as him and we stayed talking for two hours.”Mourinho is exactly what people see on camera, at the time he’s explosive, but he is an extremely intelligent, very prepared guy, so what people see in the interviews is all prepared.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

He said on Sky Sports: “They have cocked it up over many years. They have cocked it up. They have cocked it up, they are responsible for this. Poor recruitment, poor selection of, well managers, going with them and then pulling off them.”Van Gaal won the FA Cup and then they sacked him. Jose Mourinho they sacked him after two and a half years when they had given him a contract six months before.”They have pulled off managers in what would be the sort of thread of it and they have gone for completely different styles of managers in Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.”They have now gone with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has taken the club in a completely different direction again, and if you change direction as a board every two years and you invest £250million along the way in each manager you are going to have big problems.”And Manchester United are basically now getting the pain they deserve for poor decisions at board level.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to ensure that the clean up job that he is doing – which needs to be done because of the mess that’s gone before him – he needs to make sure that he actually gets the opportunity to spend that £250million that the others have got to spend so that he can have an opportunity.”There are things out there that I like. There are things that I liked from Jose Mourinho as well, I didn’t want him to be sacked, but there were things I liked out there today.”
