On Alexanders medical practice once she returned

first_imgOn Alexander’s medical practice once she returned to Charlotte: I’m sure to fill a need, a very stark…need, and to differentiate her practice, to build her practice, her caseload was largely based around gynecology, obstetrics, as well as early childhood diseases. She did treat a wide variety of these illnesses, and in fact, when she became the president of the county medical society, she spearheaded this entire campaign against hookworm, which was hugely prevalent in the South at the time and especially infected, unfortunately, children. She also later on grappled with this huge flu pandemic that swept across the South in 1918.Also there were pandemics involving malaria and typhoid as a result of the end of World War I. So she started off in gynecology, then worked into helping children and then eventually when she gained her prominent position as president of the medical society, she was able to spearhead entire campaigns branching out into what had formerly been territory entirely designated to male doctors.,This month WFDD will be taking a look at the stories of pioneering leaders in our series, “Her Voice: Revolutionary North Carolina Women.”,In the latest installment of our series “Her Voice: Revolutionary North Carolina Women,” we look at one of the first,Fifteen years before Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus, another woman refused to give up her seat.,At the turn of the 20th Century, a 19-year-old African-American woman from Henderson, N.C., began building a school – the Palmer Memorial Institute – that would educate more than 1,000 black youth. Annie’s father was a doctor during the Civil War, and he had a female patient who was so embarrassed during this time period to be examined by a male doctor that she refused medical treatment, and she subsequently died. So her [Alexander’s] father decided that his daughter would go into medicine to maybe help rectify this issue. To his credit, he felt that there was a terrible choice to be made. ‘Shall I allow female patients to die out of their embarrassment, or shall I put a female into my doctor’s position and remove that embarrassment and thereby save their lives?’ So, clearly that was a noble position to take and one that was extremely novel for his generation, in the time period, to have to push his daughter to become a doctor. He benefitted a lot of people. But I wonder how much say in the matter Annie actually had. For the final installment of this month’s series, “Her Voice: Revolutionary North Carolina Women,” we go back to the 19th Century, to a town just outside of Charlotte and a time before women had the right to vote.Here we find Annie Lowrie Alexander, who would become the first licensed female medical doctor in the South. WFDD’s Bethany Chafin spoke with author and filmmaker Anna Fields about how Alexander became a pioneer in medicine.Interview HighlightsOn the beginning of Alexander’s career in medicine: On where Alexander did her medical studies:center_img At first her father hired a tutor and then supplemented that education with his own mini medical lessons. And then at the age of only 17 she went to the Women’s Medical College in Philadelphia. She graduated there with honors in 1884 actually, and moved to Baltimore where she spent another full year teaching anatomy and interning while she was studying for her medical license. She then passed the licensing exam in Maryland. She had the highest grade in the class of 100 students of which she was the only woman. Once she took the North Carolina medical exams and passed, she became the first female doctor in the entire South. So, pretty amazing. In Charlotte there was only one hospital. And so Annie remodeled her home so that she could see patients there as well. I’m sure there were many more patients than there were hospital beds, so she remodeled the first floor of her home into essentially a hospital ward, and she would see patients actually in the rooms above. She did slowly build up her practice. She was making rounds for the people who truly could not come to her home. She would make house calls on her horse-drawn buggy…until she finally purchased an automobile in 1911. This of course was Ford’s Model T.

Want to reduce your risk of dementia in older age

first_imgWant to reduce your risk of dementia in older age? Move as much as you can.We’ve all heard about techniques to get us more physically active — take the stairs, park the car a bit further from your destination, get up and march in place for a minute or two when standing or sitting at a desk.Now a study finds even simple housework like cooking or cleaning may make a difference in brain health in our 70s and 80s.”Exercise is an inexpensive way to improve health and our study shows it may have a protective effect on the brain,” says Dr. Aron S. Buchman with Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, who led the study.Previous research found just 45 minutes of walking three days a week actually increased brain volume among individuals 65 and older.The new study, published Wednesday in the online issue of Neurology, is unique because Buchman was able to analyze the actual brains of study participants. The findings are a “great thank you” to the participants who agreed to donate their brains for research after death, he says.The study looked at 454 older adults who were 70 or older when the research began. Of those adults, 191 had behavioral signs of dementia and 263 did not. All were given thinking and memory tests every year for 20 years.In the last years of research before death, each participant wore an activity monitor called an accelerometer, similar to a Fitbit, which measured physical activity around the clock — everything from small movements such as walking around the house to more vigorous movements like exercise routines. Researchers collected and evaluated 10 days of movement data for each participant and calculated an average daily activity score.The findings show that higher levels of daily movement were linked to better thinking and memory skills, as measured by the yearly cognitive tests. And when Buchman analyzed brain tissue under a microscope, this finding turned out to be the case even for individuals with at least three signs of Alzheimer’s disease, such as amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. Even though these individuals might have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, 30 percent of them had “normal” cognition at death, says Buchman.Why one person shows signs of dementia and another, who has similar degenerative changes in the brain, does not, is a mystery. But Buchman says the new findings suggest that physical activity may be protective, even amidst developing Alzheimer’s. It sort of masks the symptoms, he says, and is an “empowering finding” suggesting you can have some control over your brain health even if you don’t have control over developing Alzheimer’s.”It’s almost as if the physical activity was helping the brain to bypass the physical damage,” says Dr. Tim Church, a preventive medicine specialist with Pennington Biomedical Research Center at Louisiana State University who was not involved in the research. “It appears that physical activity was critical to creating a reserve that protects against those physical damages.”And, while intense activity and exercise is highly beneficial, even light activity can make a difference, says Buchman. “As long as you have some activity and you’re moving, whether you’re chopping onions, typing, sweeping the floor or even running,” you can reduce your risk of cognitive decline.The findings are impressive, says research scientist Carl Cotman, director of the Institute for Brain Aging and Dementia at the University of California, Irvine, showing that physical activity may “offset the ill effects of brain degeneration.” He adds that lifestyle interventions such as an increase in physical activity and movement can be powerful even in the presence of disease. Cotman was not involved in the research.But exactly how the protective effect may work is unclear. Buchman says the current findings are a “great start” but he hopes to look more closely at participant’s brains to measure different proteins and try to identify which ones might link physical activity to better cognition.There are some caveats to the study. The findings do not show clear cause and effect. Study participants with dementia had significantly lower indications of movement compared to those without dementia. It may be possible that as people lose memory and thinking skills, they also reduce their physical activity.And the study did not have data on how active participants were over the course of their lives. It could be that older adults who moved more were also lifelong exercisers so it’s not known if physical activity in early life may have played a role.While previous research suggests that people may be able to beat back dementia with exercise, Buchman acknowledges that “more studies are needed to determine if moving more is truly beneficial to the brain.” Copyright 2019 NPR.

WeWork Sues ExEmployee for Disclosing Information to Reporters

first_img WeWork Companies Inc., a closely held operator of shared office space, has sued a former employee for unauthorized disclosure of information to Bloomberg News that showed the firm, which is valued at $16 billion, falling short of its financial goals.In a complaint filed late on Friday with the New York Supreme Court for Manhattan, WeWork accused Joanna Strange, who was fired June 10, of unlawful access to its computers and of stealing confidential and proprietary information. The firm, which operates sites in 40 U.S. and foreign cities, also accused Strange of breaching her contractual and fiduciary duties.Bloomberg reported on Friday that in late April, WeWork in an internal review document slashed a 2016 profit forecast by 78 percent, cut its revenue estimate by 14 percent and disclosed a 63 percent surge in projected negative cash flow.Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Adam Neumann told employees in meetings on May 9 and May 23 that the company had to rein in costs and get its finances in order, according to Bloomberg. WeWork said on Thursday that it reported a case of corporate theft to the U.S. Attorney’s office and that the “stolen document was prepared months ago for scenario planning purposes and does not reflect our robust operating momentum.”Reuters was unable to contact a lawyer for Strange.WeWork said it required all employees to sign an agreement that precluded them from disclosing proprietary information without written approval. This restriction applied both during and after Strange’s employment, the court filing said.After her termination, Strange accessed WeWork’s computers without authorization by using credentials belonging to David Fano, a senior executive, and disclosed the information to reporters, the filing said.WeWork said it was seeking unspecified damages and a trial by jury.Strange may say that at least some of the disclosed information was not truly proprietary, said Dan Eaton, a lecturer at San Diego State University’s College of Business and an employment lawyer. Some information about the company’s finances was known, he said.Strange may say that she had authorized access to the information, Eaton said. In California, granting access to and then misusing information is not a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act because the anti-hacking statue focuses on access, not misuse, he said.(Reporting by Herbert Lash; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn) WeWork Image credit: Mandel Ngan | Getty Images July 18, 2016 The only list that measures privately-held company performance across multiple dimensions—not just revenue. 2019 Entrepreneur 360 List –shares Add to Queuecenter_img WeWork Sues Ex-Employee for Disclosing Information to Reporters Reuters Next Article 2 min read This story originally appeared on Reuters Apply Now »last_img read more

A schoolboy who “dreamed” of working for Apple hacked the firm’s computer systems, Australian media has reported, although the tech giant said Friday no customer data was compromised. © 2018 AFPcenter_img Apple fined millions for Australia false iPhone claims The Children’s Court of Victoria was told the teenager broke into Apple’s mainframe—a large, powerful data processing system—from his home in the suburbs of Melbourne and downloaded 90GB of secure files, The Age reported late Thursday.The boy, then aged 16, accessed the system multiple times over a year as he was a fan of Apple and had “dreamed of” working for the US firm, the newspaper said, citing his lawyer.Apple said in a statement Friday that its teams “discovered the unauthorised access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement”.The firm, which earlier this month became the first private-sector company to surpass US$1 trillion in market value, said it wanted “to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised”.An international investigation was launched after the discovery involving the FBI and the Australian Federal Police, The Age reported.The federal police said it could not comment on the case as it is still before the court. The Age said police raided the boy’s home last year and found hacking files and instructions saved in a folder called “hacky hack hack”.”Two Apple laptops were seized and the serial numbers matched the serial numbers of the devices which accessed the internal systems,” a prosecutor was reported as saying. A mobile phone and hard drive were also seized whose IP address matched those detected in the breaches, he added.The teen has pleaded guilty and the case is due to return to court for his sentencing next month.

BSP chief rejects alliance with Cong in MP RajasthanBSP chief rejects alliance

first_imgCOMMENTS Mayawati claims Cong more keen on demolishing her party than defeating BJP October 03, 2018 Opposition unity suffered a major setback on Wednesday with the most critical element in anti-BJP political chemistry, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), rejecting any alliance with the Congress in either Madhya Pradesh or Rajasthan. Assembly elections are due in the next few months in both these States.BSP president Mayawati accused the Congress of “stabbing me in the back” — casting grave doubts about the viability of opposition alliances, especially in the politically critical Uttar Pradesh, in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.“The Congress is not willing to make any compromise despite the challenge that the BJP has put before the voters. The BSP has always bowed to the national interest and supported their government at the Centre for ten years. But the Congress has stabbed the BSP in the back. It was the BJP that first targeted me with the Taj corridor case but it has escaped no one that the Congress used it to hound me for years. I was given a reprieve only by the Supreme Court,” said Mayawati. Mayawati has announced an alliance with former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi in Chhattisgarh, where also elections will be held this year.This is likely to hurt the Congress in a State where the difference of votes between the Congress and the BJP in the 2013 Assembly elections was 97,574.The BSP, on its own, secured 5,58,424 votes although it managed to win only one Assembly seat. The difference led to the BJP cornering 49 seats and a majority in the 90-member Assembly while the Congress got 39 seats. This time, Mayawati’s tie-up with the Congress rebel Ajit Jogi is bound to hurt the Congress in a closely fought election.The extent of political cost of the BSP chief’s short press conference, accusing the Congress of “stabbing me in the back”, cannot be over-estimated in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, as also in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections where the Opposition had been counting on Mayawati to be the magnet for Dalit and most backward caste voters.Congress “not serious”Describing the Congress’s attitude as “rassi jal gai par bal nahin gaya (they’ve lost everything but arrogance)”, Mayawati heaped further scorn on the Congress, saying, “They (Congress) are pathetic. Despite repeated losses in elections — look at what happened in Gujarat— they still believe they can take on the BJP on their own. That leads me to suspect whether they are actually serious in defeating the BJP.”Mayawati proceeded to narrate past humiliations that the Congress meted out not just to the BSP founder Kanshi Ram but also to BR Ambedkar who “had to resign from the Law Ministry, was not given Bharat Ratna”. She said the Congress is “arrogant and obdurate” and not willing to cede space to other parties even when it is not in a position to fight the BJP on its own.BSP to contest alone“We have now decided that even in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, the BSP will fight on its own. The Congress’s attitude shows that they are more interested in eliminating the BSP than in defeating the BJP. It is because of this attitude of the Congress that the BJP has been winning elections and staying in power for so long in MP and Gujarat. What is it if not arrogance that despite being out of power for 15 years, they are not willing to give more than 20 seats to the BSP out of 230 in MP and not more than 5-6 seats in Rajasthan,” she said.Mayawati said that that her’s was the only party with the ability to transfer its vote to the other parties. Still, she said, the Congress is adamantly forcing her to go it alone.The BSP chief said, “In alliances, the BSP suffers more than the other parties. The BSP is the only party with a transferable vote. But we are now forced to believe that the Congress is conspiring to finish our party in the garb of destroying the BJP. Bur we are the stone that changes the course of the river.”She continued, “We are the party that struggles for the rights of the poor and the next election will prove that we are capable of defeating the BJP.”“We do not want to fight any election with the Congress. We will have no alliance with the Congress,” she said. Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati – PTI politicscenter_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL Published on COMMENT SHARElast_img read more
