Anonymous donor pledges 500000 to the Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools

first_imgA major donation will help Vancouver Public Schools support the district’s littlest learners and their families, district officials said this week.The Foundation for Vancouver Public Schools this week announced it received its largest single donation ever pledged: $500,000 over four years. The money, given by an anonymous donor, will help the district expand free, short-term, after-school preschool sessions at its highest-need elementary schools.“The generosity in this particular donation stands to impact not just the preschool program but the rest of the kids in the elementary school,” said Nada Wheelock, the foundation’s executive director.The district’s Preschool Explorer program, currently in place at nine Vancouver Public Schools campuses, will expand to all 15 of the district’s Title 1 elementary schools because of the donation. Those campuses have a high percentage of low-income students and receive federal dollars to support all students.Debra Hale, executive director of teaching and learning for the district, say the classes give students a taste of some of what they’ll be learning in kindergarten: letters, numbers, colors and shapes. It also gives students, perhaps more importantly, a feel for what their future schools look like and how to behave in a classroom.“That’s the hard-to-quantify part,” Hale said. “(Students) walk in saying, ‘This is my school. I belong here.’”The afternoon preschool programs look a little different at each campus depending on what families want and need, Hale said. At Sarah J. Anderson Elementary School, for example, one session is taught entirely in Spanish. That campus is home to the district’s Spanish-English dual language program, and has a large population of Spanish speakers. Some campuses’ preschool programs offer a free dinner for students as well as their parents.last_img read more

Vancouver Farmers Market ends banner year

first_img The Sunday rain did not deter shopper Neville Bayly from taking in the final day of the season at the Vancouver Farmers Market.She said she comes every weekend.“I like fresh produce every week and I’m a foodie,” she said, armed with her umbrella. “And I like to support my vendor friends.”“I think its better and better each year,” Bayly of Vancouver said of the market. “It’s very well organized and I like the competitiveness of each stall, and I have my favorites, I know them by name.”She bought delicata squash and fresh organic apples on Sunday.So, the 23rd edition of the March through October market is in the books.Jordan Boldt said his unofficial records show a 40 percent increase in customers over 2011. He said more than 360,000 people visited the market.“It’s been a record year for a lot of vendors,” Boldt said. Despite a half-inch of rain Sunday, many vendors were doing well, with holiday shoppers making purchases. Vendors pay $40 a day to sell at the market on Esther Street just off Eighth Street. Boldt said the market is self-sustaining financially with its 180 vendors.He said a busy day brings 15,000 or more customers.“We had days when at 9:30 (a.m.) it was wall-to-wall people,” Boldt said.Crawford’s Farm of Cornelius, Ore., had a great year at the market, said Sandro Chavez, 37, and his cousin, Isamar Zurita, 14. They sell several kinds of vegetables and fruits.Chavez said the family has been coming to the Vancouver market for two decades.Zurita said on a good day, the family can have sales of $5,000.“We’ll keep coming, definitely,” Zurita said, when asked if Crawford’s will be back in 2013.At the Camdeo Candle, Steve Wildman said it has been an excellent year for the Fisher’s Landing firm run by his daughter, Caitlin Marsters. The soy candles sell for $7 to $14 and come in 80 scents. Rain is forecast for the metro area today.last_img read more

Demolition of former Fred Meyer store begins

first_imgAlthough Wal-Mart Stores Inc. still hasn’t confirmed whether it plans to build a Neighborhood Market-sized grocery store at Fourth Plain and Grand boulevards, demolition has begun on the site’s long-vacant Fred Meyer store.The site is owned by Redwood, Calif.-based GID Properties LLC. Permits to demolish the building were issued to General Client Services, or GCS, on Feb. 12, according to Patti McEllrath, an associate planner with Vancouver’s Community Development Department.“But I still haven’t heard anything from the applicant,” she said.Redevelopment plans were submitted last year to build a 42,000-square-foot grocery store on the site, but no company name is attached to the proposal submitted to the city to tear down the old store and build the smaller store. Development plans include a pad reserved on the site to accommodate a future fast-food restaurant.Two clues point to Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart, whose presence is steadily increasing in the Vancouver-Portland area.The listed applicant, PacLand, commonly develops stores for Wal-Mart in the local area. And the proposed store’s size matches Wal-Mart’s 42,000- to 43,000-square-foot Walmart Neighborhood Market concept. The stores are smaller than themuch-larger Walmart SuperCenters and carry fresh produce, meats, groceries and household items.Wal-Mart officials did not respond to phone messages and emails on Wednesday.However, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is bringing its market-style store concept into the area. The company has already begun redevelopment work on its first Vancouver Neighborhood Market in the former WinCo Foods store site in the Vancouver Plaza shopping center off state Highway 500 and Thurston Way. The store will take up less than half of the giant former WinCo Foods space and is slated to open later this year.last_img read more

Visually impaired children tour Marlins Park meet players

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – Marlins Park put on a touching tour for the visually impaired Wednesday.Participants, ages 14 to 22, from the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired hit the field and toured the Marlins Park stadium for the annual “Touch Tour” transition program.They also got to meet with some of the Marlins stars like catcher J.T. Realmuto. “This is our fifth year doing this, so it’s really — it’s pretty special for us to have these kids out here and be able to interact with them and hang out with them for a bit,” he said.They also get a very hands-on experience. “It gets them exposed to the elements of Marlins Park,” said Alan Alvarez, Director of Marlins Foundation. “They get to walk on the grass, pick up the sand, hear the sound of the bat hitting the ball and touch a lot of different baseball equipment.”The group was invited thanks to a partnership between the organization and the Marlins charity. “It’s an opportunity to invite the group back out for a game and they get to experience the game in a whole different type of way,” Alvarez said.“They were laughing and having a great time,” said Virginia Jacko, President of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, “and for the Marlins to be so generous and have so many children here today, not only the Miami Lighthouse Children, but other children from summer camps, that’s community support.”The organization wasn’t the only ones excited to open up the stadium for the day. “Its just an exciting day for them and they look forward to it every year,” Alvarez said.

PM Hasina praises officials for understanding govt priorities

first_imgA secretary hands over the file of annual performance agreement (APA) of ministries and subordinate bodies for 2018-19 fiscal to prime minister Sheikh Hasina at the International Conference Centre (ICC) of the Prime Minister’s Office on Wednesday. Photo: BSSPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday appreciated the public servants for realising the ultimate goal of the government and working to take the country to the height it wants to see.“You’ve realised what we want, the goals that we want to achieve and the level [of development] that we want to take the country to. Being able to realise this and implement this is the main thing,” she said.The prime minister said this at a function in her office marking the signing of the annual performance agreement (APA) of ministries and subordinate bodies for 2018-19 fiscal at the International Conference Centre (ICC) at her office.She said her government wants to advance the country fast. “We want the country to be prosperous and developed getting free from corruption, militancy, terrorism and drugs. That is our ultimate goal,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said the height Bangladesh has attained in the world arena has to be maintained in the coming days. “We have to maintain that and we have to keep that in mind.”About the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), she said like the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) these will be achieved.“We will surely be able to show our skill in implementing that and we are taking programmes keeping that in mind,” Hasina said.The premier said the APA makes the officials responsible up to the grassroots level which helps complete the development works in a specific timeframe and people will enjoy its benefits.She thanked the secretaries for signing the annual performance agreement soon after passing the budget in parliament saying it will help implement the development projects in a faster way.Sheikh Hasina said Awami League is taking the country forward with a specific and well-thought out short and long-term plans, given shape in consultation at different levels of the party for many years.The APA will help improve the efficiency and accountability of government offices and expedite the implementation of government policies and programmes under an intensive monitoring system, she hoped.”The APA is an internal mechanism of the civil administration from top to the grassroots level to ensure accountability of government officials aimed at evaluating their yearly performance and making them accountable to their responsibilities,” she said.The government, for the fifth year, has signed the APA with the ministries and their subordinate bodies which also included division, district and upazila level government offices.The APA is an essential record of understanding between a minister representing people’s mandate, and the secretary of a ministry/division responsible for implementing this mandate.It seeks to address three basic questions: What is the ministry’s main strategic objective for the year, what activities are proposed by it to achieve these strategic objectives and how would someone know at the end of the year the degree of progress made in implementing these activities.The senior secretaries and secretaries in charge of 51 ministries and divisions handed over copies of their respective annual performance agreement to the prime minister.Under the agreement, the ministries ascertain vision, mission and strategic goals in consistent with the development priorities of the government, undertake short and long-term plans as per budgetary allocations.Three ministries/divisions were awarded for their best performance this year. These are implementation monitoring and evaluation division of planning ministry, women and children affairs ministry and agriculture ministry. Their rates of implementation are 99 per cent, 98 per cent and 97 per cent respectively. Prime minister Sheikh Hasina handed over the awards.Finance minister AMA Muhith and state minister for public administration Ismat Ara Sadique, cabinet secretary Mohammad Safiul Alam, PM’s principal secretary Md Nojibur Rahman and chief coordinator on SDG Affairs M Abul Kalam Azad, among others, addressed the function.Cabinet members, parliament members, heads of different government organisations and senior officials were present.last_img read more

Trump says big price to pay for Syria chemical attack

first_imgDonald TrumpUS president Donald Trump said there would be a “big price to pay” for a chemical attack against a besieged rebel-held town in Syria where medical aid groups reported dozens of people were killed by poison gas.The Syrian state denied government forces had launched any chemical attack and Russia, President Bashar al-Assad’s most powerful ally, called the reports bogus.A joint statement by the medical relief organisation Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) and the civil defence service, which operates in rebel-held areas, said 49 people had died in the attack late on Saturday in the town of Douma. Others put the toll even higher.”Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay,” Trump wrote on Twitter.The Russian Foreign Ministry warned against any military action on the basis of “invented and fabricated excuses”, saying this could lead to severe consequences.The United States launched a cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base last year in response to a sarin gas attack in northwestern Syria blamed on Assad.One of Trump’s top homeland security advisers said on Sunday the United States would not rule out launching another missile attack. “I wouldn’t take anything off the table,” White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Thomas Bossert said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week.””We are looking into the attack at this point,” he said, adding that the photos of the incident are “horrible.”In one video shared by activists, the lifeless bodies of around a dozen children, women and men, some of them with foam at the mouth, were seen. “Douma city, 7 April … there is a strong smell here,” a voice can be heard saying.Reuters could not independently verify the reports.Douma is in the eastern Ghouta region near Damascus. Assad has won back control of nearly all of eastern Ghouta in a Russian-backed military campaign that began in February, leaving just Douma in rebel hands.The Ghouta offensive has been one of the deadliest in Syria’s seven-year-long war, killing more than 1,600 civilians, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.Facing military defeat, rebel groups in other parts of eastern Ghouta have taken safe passage to other opposition-held areas at the Turkish border. Until now, Jaish al-Islam has rejected that option, demanding it be allowed to stay in Douma.Syrian state media said on Sunday a deal had been struck under which Jaish al-Islam would finally leave for the town of Jarablus after saying the group had asked for negotiations.There was no immediate comment from Jaish al-Islam, which has been one of the most prominent insurgent groups in the war.A pro-Syrian opposition TV station, Orient, said earlier talks were under way between Jaish al-Islam and Russia to reach a final settlement for Douma.Taking Douma would seal Assad’s biggest victory since 2016, and underline his unassailable position in the war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people since it mushroomed from protests against his rule in 2011.SHELTERING IN BASEMENTSThe Syrian Observatory monitoring group said it could not confirm whether chemical weapons had been used in the attack on Saturday. Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman said 11 people had died in Douma as a result of suffocation caused by heavy bombardment.Medical relief organisation SAMS said a chlorine bomb hit Douma hospital, killing six people, and a second attack with “mixed agents”, including nerve agents, had hit a nearby building.Basel Termanini, the US-based vice president of SAMS, which operates medical facilities and supports medics in Syria, told Reuters another 35 people had been killed at a nearby apartment building, most of them women and children.The joint statement from SAMS and the civil defence said medical centres had taken in more than 500 people suffering breathing difficulties, frothing from the mouth and smelling of chlorine.One of the victims was dead on arrival and six died later, it said. Civil defence volunteers reported more than 42 cases of people dead at their homes showing the same symptoms, it said.Tawfik Chamaa, a Geneva-based Syrian doctor with the Syria-focused Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM), a network of Syrian doctors, said 150 people were confirmed dead and the number was growing. “The majority were civilians, women and children trapped in underground shelters,” he told Reuters.Syrian state news agency SANA said Jaish al-Islam was making “chemical attack fabrications in an exposed and failed attempt to obstruct advances by the Syrian Arab Army,” citing an official source.The Syrian government has repeatedly denied using chemical weapons during the conflict.”We have received reports of many people killed and injured in Duma in the past 24 hours. We continue to be extremely concerned for people who remain in Douma who are being subjected to escalating hostilities,” UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs spokeswoman Linda Tom said.last_img read more

US general Taliban likely to be longterm threat

first_img Top Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan (AP) – The United States accepts that a diminished but resilient Taliban is likely to remain a military threat in some parts of Afghanistan long after U.S. troops complete their combat mission next year, the top U.S. military officer says.In an Associated Press interview at this air field north of Kabul, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Sunday he is cautiously optimistic that the Afghan army will hold its own against the insurgency as Western troops pull back and Afghans assume the lead combat role. He said that by May or June, the Afghans will be in the lead throughout the country. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   Top holiday drink recipes Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Asked whether some parts of the country will remain contested by the Taliban, he replied, “Yes, of course there will be.”“And if we were having this conversation 10 years from now, I suspect there would (still) be contested areas because the history of Afghanistan suggests that there will always be contested areas,” he said.He and other U.S. commanders have said that ultimately the Afghans must reach some sort of political accommodation with the insurgents, and that a reconciliation process needs to be led by Afghans, not Americans. Thus the No. 1 priority for the U.S. military in its final months of combat in Afghanistan is to do all that is possible to boost the strength and confidence of Afghan forces.Shortly after Dempsey arrived in Afghanistan on Saturday, the Taliban demonstrated its ability to strike.It claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing that killed five Americans _ three soldiers and two civilians, including Anne Smedinghoff, a foreign service officer and the first American diplomat killed overseas since the terrorist attack Sept. 11 in Benghazi, Libya.A fierce battle between U.S.-backed Afghan forces and Taliban militants in a remote corner of eastern Afghanistan left nearly 20 people dead, including 11 Afghan children killed in an airstrike, Afghan officials said Sunday. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement In a separate interview Sunday with al-Hurra, the Arabic-language satellite TV channel funded by the U.S. government, Dempsey was asked whether he worries that Syria, in the midst of a civil war, could become another Afghanistan.“I do. I have grave concerns that Syria could become an extended conflict” that drags on for many years, he said.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) There are now about 66,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. That number is to drop to about 32,000 by February 2014, and the combat mission is to end in December 2014. Whether some number _ perhaps 9,000 or 10,000 _ remain into 2015 as military trainers and counterinsurgents is yet to be decided.Dempsey spent two days talking to senior Afghan officials, including his counterpart, Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, as well as top U.S. and allied commanders.He also visited a U.S. base in the volatile eastern province of Paktika for an update on how U.S. troops are balancing the twin missions of advising Afghan forces and withdrawing tons of U.S. equipment as the war effort winds down.Paktika is an example of a sector of Afghanistan that is likely to face Taliban resistance for years to come.Bordering areas of Pakistan that provide haven for the Taliban and its affiliated Haqqani network, Paktika has been among the more important insurgent avenues into the Afghan interior.While the province has a functioning government, Taliban influence remains significant in less populated areas, as it has since U.S. forces first invaded the country more than 11 years ago.“There will be contested areas, and it will be the Afghans’ choice whether to allow those contested areas to persist, or, when necessary, take action to exert themselves into those contested area,” he said. Clean energy: Why it matters for Arizona 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Dempsey said he is encouraged by the recent development of coordination centers, including one in Paktika, where a wide range of Afghan government agencies work together on security issues. He called it a “quilt” of government structures that links Kabul, the capital, to ordinary Afghans in distant villages.In some parts of the country, Afghan villagers have shown their dissatisfaction with Taliban influence by taking up arms against the insurgents, even without being pushed by the U.S. or by Kabul. This has happened in recent weeks in the Panjwai district of Kandahar province, a traditional stronghold of the Taliban. The Andar district of Ghazni province has seen a similar uprising.“We should encourage it, but we shouldn’t be seen as hijacking” these local movements, he said.Dempsey said he discussed the uprisings with Karimi, the army chief, and the Afghan defense minister, Bismullah Khan Mohammadi. They told him they “appreciated that they should allow this to occur (and) they should probably nurture it. They don’t necessarily feel at this point as if they should tangibly support it.”The Afghan government’s concern, Dempsey said, is that influential warlords could embrace these local movements and eventually leverage them to threaten the armed forces of the central government.last_img read more

Suspect in Tunisia attack claims innocence at 1st hearing

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Tunisia has 40 days to provide Milan prosecutors with documentation and the extradition request, which prosecutors have three months to examine, Fiorentino said. She said she was hoping to have Touil freed in the meantime.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. They said Touil arrived in Sicily with a boatload of rescued migrants on Feb. 17, but Tunisian authorities have said he provided “indirect” support to the Islamic extremists responsible for the attack.Touil told the judge he had nothing to do with the massacre and had been in Italy ever since he arrived, his lawyer, Silvia Fiorentino, told reporters.Fiorentino said Touil refused to be handed over to Tunisian authorities, setting the stage for an extradition procedure that may be complicated by Italy’s refusal to extradite people to countries with the death penalty. She said Touil didn’t understand why he was in prison, but that overall he was in good health.Even though Touil was ordered expelled from Italy after he arrived in Sicily, his Italian teacher has told prosecutors he was in class near Milan the days before and after the Bardo attack, making it all but impossible that he was physically present in Tunis.Interior Minister Angelino Alfano initially hailed the “investigative success” and the anti-terrorism coordination between Italy and Tunisia that brought about Touil’s arrest. But as evidence mounted that Touil wasn’t in Tunisia at the time of the attack, Alfano distanced Italy from Tunisia’s accusations, saying police were merely executing an international arrest warrant. ROME (AP) — The Moroccan migrant accused of being involved in Tunisia’s Bardo Museum massacre insisted Friday on his innocence and refused to voluntarily be turned over to Tunisian authorities.Abdelmajid Touil, 22, had his first hearing in Milan’s San Vittore prison after police arrested him on a Tunisian arrest warrant.

Adelaide Airports 30 year vision on track

first_imgSource = ETB Travel News: Lewis Wiseman Adelaide Airport Ltd (AAL) has unveiled plans to more than triple the size of its domestic and international terminal as part of its 30-year Vision for the site.The release of the 30 year Vision coincides with the roll-out of a new logo and branding for Adelaide Airport to carry into the future.AAL managing director Mark Young, said terminal expansion plans would see the number of aerobridges more than triple from 14 to 52 by 2044, easily accommodating new-generation aircraft including the A380 and Dreamliner.“This is the next big phase in our growth and development. We want to be a top tier airport business centre in the Asia Pacific, and to do this we need to set ambitious targets and invest in future infrastructure,” Mr Young said.“Since privatisation in 1998, we’ve doubled the number of passengers and more than quadrupled the number of international passengers.  We’ve also invested more than $500 million in infrastructure and facilitated a further $350 million in the past 10 years alone,” he added.The new Airport Business District will encompass all aspects of future development across the airport’s 785-hectare site.Some of the industries already established or looking to grow at Adelaide Airport include mining and resources, freight and logistics, technology, office and warehousing, healthcare, government enterprises and emergency services.Mr Young said today’s unveiling of Adelaide Airport’s 30-year Vision follows the release in July of Adelaide Airport’s Preliminary Draft Master Plan, which sets out the regulatory framework within which development can take place.last_img read more

margin would be the same had Daines been there and Murkowski said she was doing so as a reminder that "we can take very small very small steps to be gracious with one another""This hasn’t been fair to the judge" Murkowski said "But I also recognize that we need to have institutions that are viewed as fair and if people who are victims people who feel that there is no fairness in our system of government – particularly within our courts – we’ve gone down a path that is not good and right for this country"Drama escalated in the afternoon as senators awaited Collins’s floor speech midafternoon FridayShe had barely said a few words when protesters stood up in the gallery yelling "Vote no Show up for Maine women" Collins looked down until all had been escorted out of the galleryAt the end of her speech when Collins said she would vote to confirm Kavanaugh McConnell led a standing ovation He then went over and shook her hand as did several other GOP senators Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley R-Iowa who presided over Kavanaugh’s caustic confirmation process gave her a bear hugThe last of the undecided votes fell into place Friday after the senators reviewed a highly anticipated report from the FBI investigating allegations of misconduct against Kavanaugh while he was in high school and college in the early 1980sRepublicans argued that the report exonerated Kavanaugh of any wrongdoing giving senators more confidence in voting to confirm him But Democrats disputed the Republicans’ assertions especially because they argued the scope of the investigation was too limitedThe FBI investigated the allegation brought by Ford a psychology professor in California Agents also looked into the accusation brought by Deborah Ramirez that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were students at Yale University Kavanaugh adamantly denies both accusationsThe allegations of a third accuser Julie Swetnick were not a focus of the investigation Swetnick who is represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti alleges that Kavanaugh was physically abusive toward girls in high school and was at a house party in 1982 where she says she was the victim of a gang rape Kavanaugh called those allegations outlandishThe FBI reached out to 10 witnesses although nine were ultimately interviewed according to senators and the White House But lawyers for Ford and Ramirez have said they offered the FBI the names of numerous other witnesses who could potentially corroborate the women’s claimsKavanaugh has served on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006 and previously worked in George W Bush’s White House He served as a clerk to Kennedy in the early 1990s alongside GorsuchThe American Bar Association which had issued a unanimous "well qualified" rating for Kavanaugh said in a letter sent Friday that it would reopen its evaluation because of "new information of a material nature regarding temperament" that emerged from an emotional and combative hearing last week that featured testimony from Ford and KavanaughKavanaugh addressed his comportment at the hearing in an extraordinary op-ed in the Wall Street Journal published Thursday night acknowledging that he was "very emotional" during his testimony and "I said a few things I should not have said""Going forward you can count on me to be the same kind of judge and person I have been for my entire 28-year legal career: hard-working even-keeled open-minded independent and dedicated to the Constitution and the public good" Kavanaugh wrote—This article was written by Seung Min Kim andJohn Wagner a reporter for The Washington Post The Washington Post’s Mike DeBonis Robert Costa Erica Werner Sean Sullivan Elise Viebeck and Paul Kane contributed to this report"People eat too much drink too much and everyone wants to come back to the gym" said Jose Velasquez 40 a restaurant worker who regularly works out at an LA Fitness gym in Washington DC and has seen the post-holiday boom-and-bust phenomenon again and againBut for the inexperienced the gym can pose unexpected hazards Many fitness wannabes are not familiar with how to use exercise machines and other equipment and can easily sustain head eye back neck hip leg and ankle injuries"Right after the holidays there’s a mad rush of people who have never exercised before or haven’t exercised in a long time" said Leon E Popovitz a veteran orthopedic surgeon at New York Bone and Joint Specialists in Manhattan "That leads to a lot of injuries that normally could be avoided"Hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer injuries every year while working out -stumbling on treadmills falling off exercise balls getting snapped in the face by resistance bands dropping weights on their toes and wrenching their backs by lifting too much weightNearly 460000 people went to hospital emergency rooms in 2012 for injuries related to exercise equipment according to Consumer Products Safety Commission data analyzed by USA Today in 2015 Most were treated and released but about 32000 were hospitalized and a few were pronounced dead on arrivalHere are five tips from Popovitz and other fitness experts to avoid mishaps on the gym floor:- Use a professional trainer to show you the ropes The biggest mistake a newcomer can make is springing to action on treadmills elliptical trainers leg presses pulleys and other equipment without basic instructions for avoiding accidents and injuries Most reputable health clubs offer introductory instruction to new members then let them decide whether to pay to continue to work out with a trainer or take part in group instruction"It wouldn’t hurt to have a second pair of eyes to watch you while you’re doing a workout you enjoy to make sure you have the right form to avoid injuries" Popovitz counsels- Beware of treadmills While they may seem to be the most basic and benign piece of equipment on the floor studies and media reports suggest that treadmills cause the most injuries – to young and old – of any type of exercise equipment One of the biggest problems with treadmills is that users "zone out" while jogging on the conveyor belt They often listen to music on their ear buds watch TV or read a book but pay no attention to the speed of the belt Exercisers have been seriously injured by falling off the treadmill after losing their balance or simply reaching for a water bottleAs crazy as it sounds some people sustain back injuries by trying to move a treadmill by themselves Finally persistent running on a treadmill can cause inflammation of the joints in the hip as well as tendinitis and bursitis That’s because people alter their gait to compensate for the narrow path or fast pace of the treadmill- Moderate your weightlifting Many novices mistakenly obsess over maximizing the weight they are lifting and the number of repetitions rather than concentrating on good form and sensible weight loadsWhen properly executed the overhead standing lift is a great exercise for toning the shoulders That requires distributing weight evenly across the shoulders and spine However many inexperienced people add far too much weight to the bar which causes them to hold the bar slightly in front of their bodyPopovitz warns that doing this can place an inordinate amount of pressure on the spine especially the lower back That is a recipe for chronic back problemsWhat’s more he said vigorous curling with excessive weights to build up the arms and pecs can lead to ruptured tendons in the chest that require surgery to repair- Know your own limitations While this may be more of a problem for exercise fanatics than health club newbies experts warn that people who regularly push their bodies to the breaking point can do serious damage to their shoulders and joints and risk life-threatening breakdowns of their musclesOne little-known danger zone is rhabdomyolysis a condition in which overactive highly fatigued muscles break down and release proteins and enzymes into the bloodstream at a dangerous rate The runaway proteins and enzymes attack the kidneys If left untreated the condition can cause kidney failureEven more scary the condition can be triggered by a single especially taxing workout such as a beginner persevering through an hour-long intense spin-cycle class or an ordinary runner undertaking a marathon under hot humid conditions- Clumsiness can do you in Just running and jumping or lugging heavy objects such as medicine balls or kettlebells around in a crowded gym can result in stumbling and falling Fitness trainers are notorious for leaving equipment and weights lying around and even some of them have suffered ankle leg and arm injuries by stumbling over equipmentFinally watch out for slippery areas such as floor tile around swimming pools and in locker rooms Health clubs and gyms are obstacle courses and the more vigilant you are the less likely you will become another post-holiday injury statistic The UNC community has demanded that the university confront and correct the meanings that have been inscribed on its memorials and
