Starting 2016 on the Right Foot

first_imgBy Gretchen C. Van Benthuysen | While some people were sleeping late or nursing hangovers the morning after New Year’s Eve, others were welcoming 2016 by taking a brisk walk in nature.Out on the northern tip of Sandy Hook, about 200 people gathered for the American Littoral Society’s annual beach walk, led by Executive Director Tim Dillingham.The annual New Year’s Day Greenway Walk took hikers through the Ramanessin section ofHolmdel Park. Photo: Courtesy Marissa FinkFurther inland, 17 people met on in the Ramanessin section of Holmdel Park for a journey along a 2.1 mile trail. The annual New Year’s Day Greenway Walk, sponsored by the Friends of Holmdel Open Space, was led by Holmdel’s former mayor and former Environmental Commission chairman, Larry Fink.Both men said while having fun was important, getting people outside to enjoy and appreciate the environment is important to their respective groups’ missions.The American Littoral Society, a national nonprofit organization based in Sandy Hook, promotes the study and conservation of marine life and habitats along the coast. Dillingham has led the annual walk for 13 years.“We’ve found the best way to help people learn about and understand the coastline is to get them out here so they develop a passion for it,” Dillingham said. “We love to be on the beach.”But life on the coast is getting more complicated.“We are trying to help fashion a better relationship with how we live along the ocean. People have been living in New York and New Jersey for 400 years and they’re not likely to leave anytime soon,” Dillingham explained. “Now the change in climate, ecologically, is causing the ocean to change so it’s becoming hazardous. We need to help people to know how to live here.”Part of the ecological coastline balancing act is preserving wetlands and salt marshes, rebuilding sand dunes and oyster reefs, and not building walls that cause waves to carve away the ocean’s bottom, Dillingham said. Those measures also are very important to the survival of marine life that live in those areas, he added.But on a chilly and windy January 1st morning, foremost on the minds of beach walkers was simply keeping warm and hoping the sun would break through gray clouds — which it did around noon.Cleo Boiko of Allenhurst said she enjoyed her first New Year’s Day beach walk with the American Littoral Society.“It was very very invigorating,” said Boiko, a member of the Monmouth County Senior Hikers group. “One of the other ladies and myself picked up a bag full of garbage so I felt I did something good for the environment and something good for myself.”Siobhan Quinn, Richard Irish and their baby Aoife. Photo: G. Van BenthuysenSiobhan Quinn, Richard Irish and their baby Aoife were enjoying refreshments at the Littoral Society’s headquarters at 18 Hartshorne Drive following the walk. Quinn said this was her fifth time walking, although she only walked part of the way since Aoife, who turns 1 in February, was getting cold. Raised in Leonardo, she said her parents taught her and her four siblings how to swim in the Atlantic Ocean and Raritan Bay.“We’d have picnics here at Sandy Hook, walk the beach, watch the sun set and the moon rise,” she said. “It’s a place that should be cherished, preserved, respected, appreciated and acknowledged. And this is a perfect day to do that. We so often don’t take the time to be in awe of how beautiful our surroundings are.”The Ramanessin section of Holmdel Park is another beautiful area people may miss as they drive by in their cars, said Larry Fink. The New Year’s Day walk began 21 years ago, he said, after a 416-acre area was purchased with $19 million in public and private money to preserve it from being used for a housing development.“The area was divided in two parts with over 200 acres becoming the Ramanessin section of Holmdel Park and managed by the county,” Fink explained. “It’s a conservation and wilderness area that’s been kept as natural as possible with a gravel parking lot and gravel and dirt trails.”Maps of the trails are available online at monmouthcountyparks.com and in the parking lot on Roberts Road. Fink strongly suggests first timers use one.People interested in learning more about land use in Holmdel may contact Citizens for Informed Land Use at www.holmdel-CILU.org.To learn more about the American Littoral Society, upcoming events, or to receive its newsletter should call 732-291-0055 or visit www.littoralsociety.org.last_img read more

Greek Freak drops 37 points, leads Bucks past Celtics

first_imgMilwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, right, tries to drive past Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, left, during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game, Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017, in Boston. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)BOSTON — Giannis Antetokounmpo dribbled into the paint, spun to his left and found his path to the basket blocked by Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum.Instead, the Greek Freak fed the ball to Matthew Dellavedova beyond the arc for the 3-pointer that helped seal Milwaukee’s 108-100 victory over the Boston Celtics in the Bucks’ season opener on Wednesday night.ADVERTISEMENT “I passed the ball to Delly,” said Antetokounmpo, who had 16 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter— and the biggest assist of the game, as well. “And that’s what Delly does.”One night after a gruesome broken ankle just six minutes into the season cost Boston top free agent Gordon Hayward — perhaps for the entire year — the Celtics fell to 0-2 by giving up an 11-1 run that left Milwaukee with a 97-90 lead and under three minutes to play.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAntetokounmpo added 13 rebounds, Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon scored 19 points and Khris Middleton had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks. Dellavedova scored 15 points, including the 3-pointer with 45 seconds left after the Celtics cut the lead to two points.“I thought Giannis made a great play at the end, trusting his teammate,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. “Just to trust his teammate down at the end to make a play … he got off the ball and Delly made a big shot.” Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Kyrie Irving scored 17 points on 7-for-25 shooting in his Boston debut, and Jaylen Brown had 18 in a subdued home opener for the Celtics, who underwent a near-complete overhaul over the summer even after earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference last season.Although Irving and No. 3 draft pick Jayson Tatum appeared in a Celtics home uniform for the first time, Hayward was left to wish them well in a pregame video in his hospital gown from his hospital bed. After cheering Hayward during his scoreboard appearance, the Celtics fans broke into a chant of his name during the first half.“Like he told us before the game, we got that message — before the whole arena got the message — he’s fine,” Celtics guard Terry Rozier said. “Personally, it was tough seeing, but I think we’ll be fine. We’ve just got to adjust.”But the team was unable to make up for the absence of the player who was expected to be their key offseason acquisition when he signed a four-year, $128 million contract to rejoin Brad Stevens, his college coach, in Boston.The Celtics trailed by seven heading into the third quarter before scoring 14 of the next 16 points, taking a 69-64 lead on Irving’s 3-pointer from the top of the key. But the Bucks regained the lead with six minutes to play, holding Boston without a basket for about five minutes.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ View comments LATEST STORIES Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Carpal tunnel release

first_imgDefinitionCarpal tunnel release is surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is pain and weakness in the hand that is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist.DescriptionThe median nerve and the tendons that flex (or curl) your fingers go through a passage called the carpal tunnel in your wrist. This tunnel is narrow, so any swelling can pinch the nerve and cause pain. A thick ligament (tissue) just under your skin (the carpal ligament)makes up the top of this tunnel.First, you will receive numbing medicine (anesthesia) so that you will not feel pain during surgery. You may be awake but you will also receive medicines to make you relax.The surgeon will cut through the carpal ligament to make more space for the nerve and tendons:Asmall surgical cut is madein the palm of your hand near your wrist.The transverse carpal ligament to cut. This eases the pressure on the median nerve. Sometimes, tissue around the nerve is removed as well.The skin and tissue underneath are closed with sutures (stitches).Sometimes surgeons do this procedure using a tiny camera that is attached to a monitor. The surgeon inserts the camera into your wrist through a very smallsurgical cutandviews the monitor to see inside your wrist. This is called endoscopic surgery. The instrument used is called an endoscope.Why the Procedure Is PerformedPatients with symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome usually try non-surgical treatments first. These are:Anti-inflammatory medicinesOccupational therapyWorkplace changes to improve your seating and how you use equipmentWrist splintsShots of corticosteroid medicine into the carpal tunnelIf none of these treatments help, some surgeons will test the electrical activity of the median nerve with an EMG. If the test shows that the problem is carpal tunnel syndrome, carpal tunnel release surgery may be recommended.advertisementIf the muscles in the hand and wrist are getting smaller because the nerve is being pinched, surgery will usually be done right away.RisksRisks of carpal tunnel release are:Allergic reactions to medicinesBleedingInfectionInjury to the median nerve or nerves that branch off of itWeakness and numbness around the handRarely, injury to another nerve or blood vessel (artery or vein)Scar sensitivityBefore the ProcedureTell your health care provider whatmedicines you are taking. This includesmedicines, supplements, or herbs you bought without a prescription.You may be asked to stop taking drugs that make it harder for your blood to clot. These include aspirin, ibuprofen, (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve), and other drugs.Ask your health care provider whichmedicines you should still take on the day of your surgery.If you smoke, try to stop. Ask your health care provider for help. Smoking can slow healing.Let your health care provider know about any cold, flu, fever, herpes breakout, or other illness you may have before your surgery.You will usually be asked not to drink or eat anything for 6 to 12 hours before the procedure.Your health care provider will tell you when to arrive at the office. Arrive on time.After the ProcedureThis surgery is done on an outpatient basis. You will not need to stay in the hospital.After the surgery, your wrist will probably be in a splint or heavy bandage for about a week. After the splint or bandage is removed, you will begin motion exercises or a physical therapy program.Outlook (Prognosis)Carpal tunnel release decreases pain, nerve tingling, and numbness, and restores muscle strength. Most people are helped by this surgery.The length of your recovery will depend on how long you had symptoms before surgery and how badly damaged your median nerve is. If you had symptoms for a long time, you may not be completely free of symptoms after you recover.ReferencesHuisstede BM, Hoogvliet P, Randsdorp MS, Glerum S, van Middlekoop M, Koes BW.

Bill would create Ontario poet laureate position in memory of Gord Downie

first_imgTORONTO – An NDP member of the Ontario legislature wants to enshrine the name of late Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie in a law creating the province’s first poet laureate.Percy Hatfield’s Poet Laureate of Ontario Act (In Memory of Gord Downie) was introduced Tuesday in the legislature.Hatfield notes that Canada has a poet laureate, as do numerous cities in the province.The poet laureate would write poetry, occasionally for use in the legislature, visit schools, present or arrange poetry readings, and assist with writing workshops or other activities.The poet laureate would also advise the legislative library regarding its collection and acquisitions.Hatfield says Downie, who died of brain cancer earlier this year at age 53, was a poet, a singer and advocate for Indigenous issues.“It’s fitting that we remember him by creating the position of Ontario’s poet laureate in his name,” he said.“Downie viewed Canada through a distinctly poetic lens, and I believe this is a beautiful way to honour him, and to continue his legacy.”last_img read more
