DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom It’s been a year since Sebastian DeLeon defied overwhelming odds to survive primary amebic meningoencephalitis, or PAM, commonly known as a brain-eating amoeba. The South Florida teen expressed his gratitude to the Florida Hospital for Children team whose quick action saved his life.“I literally owe him my life, and I want to thank him and let him know he is the reason I’m still here,” Sebastian, 18, said of his doctor, Humberto Liriano, M.D., a pediatric critical care physician.They spoke to a crowd of physicians Friday at Florida Hospital for Children’s third annual Amoeba Summit. The summit was founded by Steve and Shelly Smelski, whose son, Jordan, died from an amoeba infection in 2014.Dr. Liriano said survival from amoeba infections is so rare that Sebastian’s case alone lowered the death rate from 99 percent to 97 percent. The infection is caused by the organism N. fowleri.“Raising awareness of PAM is very important because early detection is key,” Dr. Liriano said. This year’s summit featured workgroups on research and treatment as well as prevention and awareness.The small risk of amoeba infection shouldn’t be a reason not to swim in lakes and rivers, but Dr. Liriano had a few simple suggestions to reduce your risk.His tips include:Before you submerge, hold your nostrils shut with your thumb and forefinger.Avoid swimming in dirty water.Be extra cautious in lakes that are 85 degrees or warmer.If you have a pool, ensure it is chlorinated.Dr. Liriano also recounted the dramatic scene a year ago, as Sebastian, then 16, was hospitalized with an intense headache. His medical team was trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of amoeba infection, which also include fever, nausea, stiffness in the neck and confusion.“I knew right away what we had to do,” Dr. Liriano said. Sebastian was administered a cocktail of several medicines and placed into a coma. Reasoning that the amoeba thrives in warmer conditions, they put the brakes on the single-celled organism’s growth.“If we cooled him down enough, the amoeba might not reproduce or multiply,” he said, giving time for the medication to work. “It takes a team to help kids survive PAM.”Even after his survival, Sebastian’s return to normalcy is another victory.According to the CDC, Sebastian is one of four PAM survivors in documented U.S. history, and one suffered severe brain damage.Since Sebastian’s cure, Dr. Liriano said he has received calls from physicians all over the country, though there haven’t been any more success stories.Surrounded by television cameras, Sebastian said his next goal is to apply for college. Luckily, he’s got quite a story to tell.“I’m going to write a pretty bomb essay because of all of this.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

The court, though refused to quash the FIR, granted interim protection to the accused till filing of Final Report. Before the Apex Court, assailing this order, the counsel for the petitioner (wife) relied on a judgment of the Supreme court in State of Telangana v Habib Abdullah Jeelani to contend that such a course is impermissible in law. In the said judgment, the court had examined the issue whether the High Court while refusing to exercise inherent powers under Section 482 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) to interfere in an application for quashment of the investigation, can restrain the investigating agency not to arrest the accused persons during the course of investigation.? It was held that such a direction by the high court “amounts” to an order under Section 438 CrPC, albeit without satisfaction of the conditions of the said provision, which is legally unacceptable.”If it thinks fit, regard being had to the parameters of quashing and the self-restraint imposed by law, has the jurisdiction to quash the investigation and may pass appropriate interim orders as thought apposite in law, but it is absolutely inconceivable and unthinkable to pass an order of the present nature while declining to interfere or expressing opinion that it is not appropriate to stay the investigation.”, the court had observed in that case.CASE: SAMIKSHA SINGH @ NIKKI vs. STATE OF UP [SLP (Crl.)

Bluegrass festival in 44th year

first_img Print Article Slawson was speaking of Rex’s Fall Festival a.k.a. Rex’s Bluegrass Festival. This fall marks the 44th year of the popular, bustling bluegrass festival in the usually sleepy community of Henderson in rural Pike County.As early as two weeks ago bluegrass aficionados started to filter in. By Wednesday afternoon, Rex “Pop” Locklar was beginning to get a little rattled by all of the RVs that were lined up waiting for a spot to put down for the festival that will get in full swing today and not miss a note until the wee hours on Sunday morning.“Pop fusses but he loves every minute of it and every one of us loves him for it,” said Lewis Record, who has been a part of Rex’s Bluegrass Festivals since the late 1980s.

I love everybody in the place.”Up came a lady with a feather in her hair.“I had a fight with a buzzard on the way over here and all that was left of him was this feather. Just call me One Feather,” she said, laughing as she went on her way.“It’s the atmosphere,” Record said, laughing. “It’s the people and the atmosphere. But most of all, it’s Rex. He loves everybody and we all love him.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Bluegrass festival in 44th year Record said he has been to bluegrass festivals all over the country and Rex’s festival is the best of them all.“Some folks will come in and have trouble getting their RVs parked and say they ain’t ever coming back again,” said Raymond Pippin.“The next year, they’ll be right back here grinning from ear to ear. You can’t run folks away from here.”Locklar had a big grin on his face as he watched the Benton brothers, Alex and Lee, pick and sing.“It makes me feel good to see young folks like these boys playing bluegrass,” Locklar said. “Let’s me know that it will keep going when all of us old folks are gone.“It just keeps on going like it always has because it’s music that gets in your blood. I was watching television one night – a gospel program – and there was Marty Rayburn a big time player now and Owen Saunders and both of them played here at this ol’ place. A lot of good music’s played here. I don’t know where you can go to hear bluegrass better than right here in Henderson.”Record cast his eyes toward the building that’s “seeing its last days.”“That old building carries a lot of memories,” he said.“A lot of photographs and other memorabilia of days gone by are in there. Rex said those things belong to the building and when the building goes, all those memories will go with it.”But Rex is wrong, his friends said.“Our memories of this place will never go away. And, we’ve got Pop to thank.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Skip By Jaine Treadwell Inside the old schoolhouse at Henderson, there’s a sign that reads, Keep Out.The sign may keep folks out of the schoolhouse that has seen better days but it won’t keep the bluegrass from flowing.“The old building can fall all the way down and we’ll still keep coming,” said Jacky Slawson. “Nothing’s going to keep us away.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitslast_img read more

Old ve-hickles are just my style

first_img Daddy was partial to old cars.Actually old ve-hickles.My friend Bannie said the “h” in vehicles is silent. But I’m a sister of the South. I don’t talk that-away. Daddy liked station wagons and he bought a variety of over-used ones. One was a Ford with wooden sides. Today, that car would be a classic and worth probably more than a brand new hybrid.Not only was the station wagon old and ugly, it was also dangerous. If you make a quick turn, the door on the passenger side would fly open causing a suction so strong that even the driver would have to hang on for dear life.Tales of woe were reason for Daddy to re-tell the story of Verbie and the ve-hickle.Verbie cleaned house for Aunt Tom who was notorious for her antics behind the wheel. One day she was “wheeling” Verbie home and, when she screeched to a halt at Verbie’ s house and turned around to say goodbye, Verbie wasn’t in the backseat or anywhere to be seen.

When she got to the corner of Main Street in Brundidge, there sat Verbie on the curb. When Aunt Tom had taken the corner on two wheels, the back door came open and Verbie slid right out in the street. Luckily, she wasn’t hurt but, from then on, she walked home.Daddy’s wooden station wagon was, therefore, dubbed the Verba-tron adding to its eccentricity.My granddaddy, Pop, was a bit eccentric himself. He had never really cared what he drove. But when he was well into his senior years, he announced that he was going to buy a new car. He had found the one he wanted at the Ford place in Brundidge. A “shiny” Mercury Marquis.Daddy almost had a turkey. But Pop said he didn’t care how much the car cost. It was the one he wanted.Daddy struck out for the Ford place and came back with the good news that he had found a couple of “real nice, used cars at good prices.”Pop thumped his walking stick on the floor as he always did when he was taking charge. “I’ve got a ‘used car,’” he said. “I want the one with lids over the headlights.”He got it.He kept the new car in the “car shed” as Daddy called it. I think Daddy said that just to get Mama started, like when he called the Frigidaire “the icebox.”“William, we’ve not had an icebox in 40 years,” Mama would say somewhat exasperated.But Pop was hard of hearing, and he couldn’t tell that the car, with the lids over the lights, was cranked until it started to vibrate. Then, he would jerk the gear into reverse and roar out of the “car shed” backwards with no regard to anything in his path.I got the used car gene from Daddy and Pop. Like them, as long as a ve-hickle has four wheels, a steering wheel and brakes, I don’t really care what it looks like, although I do prefer a CD player.My car Maybelle comes from a long line of used ve-hickles. She has no shine and a bad case of road-acea. She’s splotched and peeling but she has a good air conditioner and heater, a CD player and she gets 39mpg.But she is aging, actually 175,000 miles, and has a cough and chokes every now and then. So, I was on the verge of looking for something — new.What I had in mind was one of those Cubes. They kind of look like me. But, when I looked close enough to see the price tag, I realized that I am my daddy’s girl.I’m kind of partial to old ve-hickles. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen But no matter – sedan, station wagon, truck or tractor – Daddy was not going to pay top dollar for any ve-hickle. He wasn’t going to spend his hard earned money for a “shine.”The ugliest car we ever had was a dark green Hudson. It looked like a bloated bullfrog that was about to croak. But it didn’t. It was “durable,” Daddy said.One of Daddy’s trucks had different colored doors but it ran good. A farm truck had wooden sides about six feet tall that leaned way to the left causing motorists to take to the ditch when they met the “Pisa” truck coming.
