The data will also be used to help distribute nearly $900 billion in federal funding for such things as schools, roads and other public services.In 2010 Census data was used to distribute more than $400 million to support local schools, transportation, housing, and healthcare programs.Some immigrants and minorities have been hesitant because they feel answering the questions could lead to queries about their immigration status and a distrust of the government.In 2019, the Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration from including a question about immigration status on the Census.If those communities do not participate it could lead to an undercount, which the city says could be devastating.The census can be completed online at Community News Pasadena Census Response Rate Increases More than 62 percent have been completed questions By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, MANAGING EDITOR Published on Monday, May 25, 2020 | 1:35 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimescenter_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

We must all do more to ensure the survival of these majestic animals for future generations.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast – April 10, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jeremy KappellAfter a mostly sunny and seasonably cool start to your Wednesday, we’ll see gradually increasing clouds across the Buckeystate.  There will be a sizeable temperature gradient with highs only in the low 40’s on the Erie Lake Shore, however, most will enjoy 60’s. Winds will be on the order of 5 to 10 mph out of the east and northeast.Meanwhile a strong late season storm system looks to develop across the Plains by late Wednesday and Wednesday night.  Ahead of this system, warming winds will arrive across the Buckeye State on Thursday with high temps warming through the 60’s and 70’s in most areas despite considerable cloud cover.  The exception will be far northern Ohio which will be stuck on the wrong side of a stationary front allowing for much cooler conditions for Toledo and norwest sections of the state.A large area of rain with embedded rumbles of thunder will approach the state from the west by Friday morning.  This activity will work it’s way across the state and generally weaken to showers as it progresses to the east.  Rainfall looks to be fairly light on the order of 0.10 to 0.30″ for most with heaviest across Western Ohio.  Expect seasonable highs in the 60’s for most of the state.Temps will cool only a bit behind a cold front as we slide into the weekend on a dry note.  High pressure looks to bring some quiet conditions Saturday with highs reaching the upper 50’s northwest and middle 60’s southeast.  Confidence is increasing that another low will form across the Lower Mississippi River Valley by late Saturday driving the potential for some heavier rainfall late Saturday night and into Sunday especially for southern parts of the state where locally more than an inch could fall.Following a breezy and cooler Monday with temps topping out in the 40’s and lower 50’s, data suggests we’ll warm it up quickly into the middle of next week with highs returning to the 60’s and lower 70’s statewide by Tuesday and into the 70’s on Wednesday.  We’ll see another chance for showers and maybe thunderstorms late Wednesday and into next Thursday.  Stay tuned.last_img read more

Letters to the Editor, July 2007

first_imgFUTURE TENSEYoung professionals seem to be devoting too much of attention to work (“Home Alone”, July 16). What they don’t realise is that they are rushing into the future and neglecting their present, the repercussions of which will be seen much later.-MANSI ANEJA, Bangalore The cover story is thought provoking.,FUTURE TENSEYoung professionals seem to be devoting too much of attention to work (“Home Alone”, July 16). What they don’t realise is that they are rushing into the future and neglecting their present, the repercussions of which will be seen much later.-MANSI ANEJA, Bangalore The cover story is thought provoking. The old deserve financial andfamilial attention in recognition of their contribution during theproductive years.-UDAYA S. MISHRA, on e-mail  In countries like Japan and China, annual appraisal of an employee depends on how one takes care of his/her parents. The required data is collected without the knowledge of the employee in collaboration with the parents. The private sector in India should adopt such measures to ensure workable relationship between the old and the young. -P.V. ARIEL, Secunderabad It is disheartening to read about the agonising life of senior citizens in India. Time is not far away when the last rites of the deceased will be performed without the attendance of their children. -CHANDER BHAT, on e-mailIt is not fair to blame the younger generation alone. The old should own up equal responsibility to bridge the gap between them and their children. Both generations should give each other space and independence. They are key to a healthy relationship. -MAN MOHAN BHATIA, DelhiYoungsters will realise and repent only when they will be disowned and discarded by their own children in the future. In their pursuit of acquiring wealth in today’s booming economy, they should not forget those who gave them birth. They should be scared of natural justice. -K. CHIDANAND KUMAR, BangaloreThe old feeling isolated is too frivolous a topic for a cover story. It didn’t deserve such a mammoth display. While so much is happening in and around India, INDIA TODAY could have chosen something more contemporary as its main story.-R.SINGH, DelhiAlthough a poignant article, the cover story did not deal with the true sandwich generation. With some senior citizens suffering at the hands of the younger lot, it is unfair to club everyone in one single category. Just like no two children can be compared, two adults too can’t be equated. -CHANDRIKA R. KRISHNAN, Bangalore  GENERAL UNREST General Pervez Musharraf may have demonstrated his commitment to fight back radical Islamism and the resurgent neo-Taliban (“Taking on the Mullahs”, July 16). However, what he doesn’t understand is that he may have just provoked many more such revolts around the country. J. -AKSHAY, SecunderabadThe year 2007 hasn’t proved lucky for Musharraf. First, he suffered setbacks from the judiciary for suspending Pakistan’s Chief Justice. And now he is pitted against another powerful political class: the mullahs. This is just a premonition of what is to come in the forthcoming elections. -CHETAN PRABHAKAR, Gurgaon  WONDER FULLTaj Mahal has retained its status in the Seven Wonders of the World (“A Vote of Love”, July 16). Without doubt, Taj is a symbol of love, as the number of votes it garnered to be a wonder stand testimony to the people’s love for it. A partof credit should go to the Supreme Court, which, to prevent the Taj from decaying, has prohibited construction around the monument. -K.PRADEEP, ChennaiSPORTING GLORYEvery state should take a cue from Gujarat on how to nurture their sportspersons (“The Rule of Iron”, July 16). The story brings a ray of hope that India will one day produce world class athletes. -SIDDHARTH GARG, DelhiMEDIA-CENTRICRakhi Sawant’s candid confession that media is her godfather is really praiseworthy (“Seedhi Baat”, July 16). She is, in fact, the creation of media hype only. -GAUTAM BHUYAN, BangaloreNEGATIVE ENERGYFor energy security in the country, the Government should first ban sale of new cars, especially in metros (“High Octane Crisis”, July 16). It is important not only for energy security, but also for controlling pollution in big cities, which in someway, is contributing to erratic weather changes. -RAHUL GARG, Delhi HISTORICAL SECRETSSuddenly publishers in India have taken it upon themselves to brush up the nation’s sense of history (“An Enchanted Past”, July 16). If Nehru and Edwina Mountbatten got along famously, Gandhi, too, had his share of controversies. With each new release promising to unsheathe some of the guarded secrets of pre-IndependenceIndia, walking down the trails of the past has never been so exciting. -ALAP MOHAN, Bangalore VALLEY OF DEATHThe growing number of suicides in Kashmir is a cause of concern for the state Government (“Extremism of Another Kind”, July 9). It should try and identify problems that are driving the youth towards suicide. Also, nongovernment organisations should take steps to introduce classes for those suffering from depression. -PRARTHANA ACHARYYA, GuwahatiAN EYE OPENER The story on useless ministries is thought provoking (“White Elephants”, June 18). It is disheartening to know that the creation of a plethora of departments has killed accountability. Language is bold, it depicts the flaws of the Government. -V.R. VENKATAKRISHNAN, Cochin DEVIL AND DEEP SEAadvertisementadvertisement Bhairon SinghShekhawat has his own reasons for fighting the Presidential Poll (“Whyis he Fighting”, July 16). Apart from BJP, he enjoys tacit support ofmany MPs and MLAs. At 83, even if he loses the election, his spirit isgoing to win.  -VIRENDRA KUMAR TANGRI, Dehradun I understand the hoopla against Pratibha Patil becoming the nextPresident. But her opponent is equally unworthy of the coveted post.What are the credentials of Shekhawat apart from being an old warhorsein politics?  -ALPANA DAS, Delhi It’s sad that Shekhawat has been pitted against Patil who is a stubbornloyalist of the Gandhi family. Politics played over the post of thePresident will be marked as one of the darkest chapters of Indianpolitics.  -PARANJYOTI DUTTA, Teok, Assamlast_img read more

Commonly used antibiotics linked with heart problems

first_imgOne of the most commonly prescribed classes of antibiotics may be associated with two types of heart problems, a study claims. A recently published study found that current users of fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as Ciprofloxacin, face a 2.4 times greater risk of developing aortic and mitral regurgitation, where the blood backflows into the heart, compared to patients who take amoxicillin, a different type of antibiotic. The greatest risk is within 30 days of use, according to the researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainRecent studies have also linked the same class of antibiotics to other heart problems, they said. Some physicians favour fluoroquinolones over other antibiotics for their broad spectrum of antibacterial activity and high oral absorption, which is as effective as intravenous, or IV, treatment. “You can send patients home with a once-a-day pill,” said researchers. “This class of antibiotics is very convenient, but for the majority of cases, especially community-related infections, they’re not really needed. The inappropriate prescribing may cause both antibiotic resistance as well as serious heart problems,” they added. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardThe researchers hope their study helps inform the public and physicians that if patients present with cardiac issues, where no other cause has been discovered, fluoroquinolone antibiotics could potentially be a cause. Scientists analysed data from the US Food and Drug Administration’s adverse reporting system. They also analysed a massive private insurance health claims database in the US that captures demographics, drug identification, dose prescribed and treatment duration. Researchers identified 12,505 cases of valvular regurgitation with 125,020 case-control subjects in a random sample of more than nine million patients. They defined current fluoroquinolone exposure as an active prescription or 30 days prior to the adverse event, recent exposure as within days 31 to 60, and past exposure as within 61 to 365 days prior to an incident. Scientists compared fluoroquinolone use with amoxicillin and azithromycin.last_img read more
