Say you have a sore throat and wonder if you have strep.If your regular doctor can’t see you right away, waiting in discomfort for an appointment doesn’t seem like the best option. You don’t need an ER, so urgent care comes to mind as your best bet.At other times, it can seem like a gray area of uncertainty and additional stress.It’s hard to always know if your symptoms are from a common illness or related to something more serious, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.While urgent care can be a quick and affordable option, staffed by professionals who can give you the best care possible, you have to know when it’s most useful.Here are some tips to consider when you’re faced with the choice between urgent care and your family doctor.Your primary care physician should be your first stop, if possible.This one is important: Urgent care is not a substitute for your family care physician. This is often called your “primary” care doctor for a reason – because they should be your first stop, if possible.Your doctor knows you. He or she is helping you look to the future by watching out for signs of long-term illness and discussing screenings, like mammograms.Even if you want immediate help, contacting your doctor first is always recommended. They may be able to see you on short notice. And if not, they might want to schedule a follow-up appointment if you do decide to visit an urgent care location.During times outside of normal business hours or on weekends, urgent care could be your first line of care, but you should always contact your primary care doctor or have your urgent care records sent to their office to keep your routine medical provider in the loop.Urgent care can prevent an emergency room visit in many cases.Urgent care can treat a wider variety of illnesses than you may assume. It can be the quick healthcare destination when an unexpected non-life threatening emergency happens to you or a loved one, which can include:Minor broken bones (certain fractures, such as in the chest or head, may require an ER visit)Other muscle or bone problems, including arthritis, gout and sprainsCommon infections, including the flu, bronchitis and earacheMinor burnsCuts (stitches)Stomach and digestive conditions, including food poisoning, vomiting and acid refluxX-rays and EKG (measures the heart’s electrical signals)Skin conditions such as rashes, poison ivy and eczemaFor the full list of services at Florida Hospital’s Centra Care, check out our website.But if you suspect your symptoms are from a more serious condition, such as a heart attack or stroke, you should call 9-1-1 or get to the nearest ER right away.Chronic or more long-term conditions should be managed by your primary care physician.Let’s say you have diabetes, and you notice you have been more tired than usual in recent days. You may be tempted to seek answers right away and go to urgent care.However, while urgent care doctors may be able to help you in the moment, your primary care doctor has the larger scope of your health history, needs, medications and your care plan for whole health – in body, mind and spirit.Here’s a list of some medical services your regular doctor is best suited to provide and manage:Well women’s examsMen’s health examsAnnual physicalsDisease management (such as diabetes and high blood pressure)Lab workIf you don’t have a regular doctor, now is a great time to establish one. And if you are not aware of which urgent care centers are close by, it’s a good idea to become more familiar with those, too. That way, you are ready to act quickly when you have an urgent health need.Florida Hospital Centra Care is the region’s largest and trusted urgent care provider backed by a nationally recognized hospital system. This means that your urgent care can be seamlessly connected to your primary care.You don’t need an appointment for urgent care, but you can make one online to avoid the wait. The website will also direct you to the nearest of the more than 30 urgent care locations in Orlando and neighboring cities, each of which is open seven days a week. Some are open as late as midnight. You can also visit the Centra Care website for more information.And if you need help finding a primary care physician or have questions about Centra Care, call (855) 303-DOCS for more support.

The Big Mac turns 50

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. McDonald’s Unveils Limited Edition MacCoin to Celebrate 50 Years of the Big Mac  The Collectable MacCoin is First Fully Food-Backed Global Currency To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac, McDonald’s unveiled the MacCoin, a limited edition global currency* backed by the internationally iconic Big Mac that fans in Central Florida and across the world can get their hands on starting today. Beginning at lunchtime on August 2, customers can receive a MacCoin with the purchase of a Big Mac at 14,000 participating restaurants across the U.S., while supplies last. Starting on August 3 through December 2018, customers can redeem their MacCoin for a free Big Mac at participating McDonald’s restaurants in the U.S. and in more than 50 participating countries.More than 6.2 million MacCoins will be distributed globally in more than 50 countries while supplies last. These commemorative coins feature five unique designs, each representing a decade of the Big Mac. Each MacCoin design pulls in elements from that time in history, nodding to art, music and pop culture, while the front-side of the MacCoin celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac. The MacCoin highlights:The ‘70s, showcasing the decade’s flower powerThe ‘80s alludes to pop artThe ‘90sare defined with bold, abstract shapesThe early ‘00s specifically focuses on the technology that was at the forefront of the turn of the century.The ‘10s MacCoin calls attention to the evolution of communication.Additionally, the seven languages featured across the various designs represent many of the countries participating: Arabic, English, Indonesian, Mandarin, Portuguese, French and Spanish.The Big Mac has become such a global icon that The Economist even used the price of the Big Mac to create the Big Mac Index, an economic tool that compares the purchasing power of different international currencies year after year. This global connectivity of the Big Mac inspired the creation of the MacCoin.“Since it was introduced at a family-owned McDonald’s restaurant 50 years ago, the Big Mac has traversed the globe and is enjoyed in cities from Shanghai to Chicago, providing delicious, feel good moments to people all over the world,” said McDonald’s President and CEO Steve Easterbrook. “So we wanted a global celebration as unique as the burger itself. The MacCoin transcends currencies to commemorate our global iconic burger while giving customers all over the world a chance to enjoy a Big Mac on us.”“When my great-grandfather Jim Delligatti invented the Big Mac at his grill in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, he just wanted to make his local customers happy,” said Nick Delligatti, fourth-generation McDonald’s owner-operator and great-grandson of Jim Delligatti, the inventor of the Big Mac. “August 2 would have been my great-grandfather’s 100th birthday, and I believe he would be very proud knowing his humble sandwich has made such a lasting impression that people all around the world can enjoy it wherever they find a McDonald’s.”*MacCoin has no cash value and is only redeemable for one free Big Mac at participating McDonald’s restaurants through 2018.

Yes, I am definitely suffering, and hurting due to this unexplained swelling, and awful pain around my right outside ankle. I don’t understand it one bit either. I was fine on Thursday, and mowed a lot of grass with my husband. Later that evening, my ankle started hurting, but I could still walk normally. Friday it was worse, and today has been horrible. I have been able to hold onto everything in sight, and drag myself to the bathroom, but have cried out in pain, even the slightest pressure really is so painful. I broke an elbow years ago, and even as painful as that was for weeks, this is worse. I would have already been to the ER at the hospital, but even with good insurance they are just too high. I will try to get to an urgent care, or foot doctor ASAP, hopefully tomorrow, to see what is causing this horrible pain. It feels like the tendons and muscles are pulling away from the bone! I wish I could be carried, but I am too heavy, and old for that, not a little kid, anymore….Thanks once again, for your prayers, Mr. Towne, and for caring about Mama Mia.

I appreciate the blessings from you and Mr. Towne more than you two will ever know. So sorry to hear about your rough week and have you in prayer. Thanks for the comment and God bless! Back to School 2018InspirationBy Don Lindsey“Up in the morning and out to school, the teacher is teaching the golden rule…”This opening line of one of my favorite Chuck Berry songs (titled “School Days”) has been playing in my head all week as we’ve started to wind up our back to school prep for the kids.  For their part, all three of my children have been grumbling and dreading the start of the school year as you would expect.  They’ve enjoyed the summer break and are getting the most out of the remaining week that they have left of relaxation.  What’s surprising to me is that while most parents are ready for their kids to start back, I’m finding that I am not as excited.  I’ve enjoyed my time with the little parasites this summer and will miss their presence around the house during the day.And while there is a lot of angst about starting school around my house, there is also a sense of excitement.  On Thursday, I took my daughter to pick up her laptop and get a glimpse of her new school.  She’s moving into middle school this year and is ready to get back to her friends.  After dropping off her laptop at the house, we ventured out to Wendy’s where we had a meal and talked about what she might expect now that she’s moving into the sixth grade.  It’s conversations such as these that make me torn between wanting my kids to stay kids while also being proud of the young adults that they are becoming.On Friday, I got to walk down to Wekiva High School with my son Kyle who will be a freshman this year to pick up his laptop.  He seemed unfazed by the prospect of starting his first year of high school, but I couldn’t help but be a little bit excited for him.  We went at the perfect time and were able to get in and out.  After our walk back home, we got into the truck and drove to Wendy’s as I did with his sister the day before where we ran into one of Kyle’s oldest friends and his family.  As we all ate and talked, I paid attention to my son’s mannerisms and again felt that feeling of pride in Kyle for being the intelligent young man that he is. I also found myself wishing that he was the same inquisitive little 8-year-old that I met almost seven years ago.Wanting them to stay little children seems to be a theme for me as of late.  Our oldest son will be starting his junior year and keeps amazing me more and more every year with how much he accomplishes while also dealing with Asperger’s syndrome.  With him turning 18 next month, I can’t figure out where the time has gone.When I first came into the lives of my kids, I was told over and over that there wasn’t a manual for parenting.  You had to just figure it out as it happened.  I thought that meant discipline and tough conversations. Turns out it also meant trying to figure out how to let go of your child’s youth while also admiring who they are as people.  I’ve learned a lot about parenting through trial and error over the last few years and have a lot more to learn I’m sure.The next lyric in the song I quoted at the beginning of this column is “American history and practical math, you study them hard, hoping to pass.”  While my children are learning school subjects this year, I’ll be trying to learn how to appreciate the present and focus on being grateful for the honor of being in the lives of these three wonderful souls.

Thursday evening my ankle started hurting so badly I could hardly stand it. Friday, it was worse, and it hasn’t gotten any better since then. The thing of it is, I have not had any injury to my ankle, lately, and I have not twisted my ankle, bumped it, nothing……yet it is swollen,, and extremely tender, and I can’t hardly walk, period. Especially to put pressure down on it. I walk like a crippled person, since this ankle got inflamed, and now I am going to have to go see a foot doctor, this week sometime. I have a big bone spur on the back of my heel, but that is not it, I don’t think, as it has been there for years. I am mystified as to what has happened to my ankle, and then also, I found out my credit card had been compromised, and a bunch of big charges I didn’t charge, had been charged, and I had to call the credit card company to get it straightened out. I am not a happy camper right now. I told my husband, my ankle is actually making me physically sick, and I am not kidding.

When school is in session, there are constant problems on our street, by the high school skippers, coming across the fence that runs parallel to the high school parking lot, and they cross through, or over the fence, go into the resident’s backyards, and hang out while the home’s residents are working. They usually wait until they see their good buddies drive down our street, that they called, and they run out really fast and hop in the cars and they are gone, off the get fast food, and then come back, and run through the resident’s yards once again, and head back with bags of food, across the high school parking lot, that is if they do come back at all. Yes, there are school resource officers at the high school, but they never catch them, on this street. I have called the APD to report them hanging out at the back of my neighbor’s home, while they are at work, and by the time the dispatch asks me a thousand questions, and the APD is sent, they are long gone, either hiding in the nearby woods,, or either have flagged down and caught a ride by their numerous good buddies in cars, heading down Martin St. I truly don’t think they want to catch those arrogant high school kids, skipping school, if you ask me, IMO, otherwise they would watch the parking lot more! I plan on writing the new principal of the high school a letter, so at least, he will know what they are up to. I bet your kids aren’t like that, Donnie, they probably were taught better, and taught respect, I am certain. You have entered an incorrect email address!

I finally got an appointment to see a foot doctor today, and first he did an x-ray, and did not see any fractured bones, and that the heel bone spur I have had a long time, did not break off. He then probed around on my foot all over, and I was in real pain, and in tears. I told him I could not put weight on my foot, and that it was making me sick with pain. He did an ultrasound, and found the problem. His diagnosis was a spontaneous rupture of tendons, and other synovitis and tenosynovitis, right ankle and foot. He showed me on the ultrasound all the dark areas, was the swelling, and then he showed me exactly the tears of the tendons from the ruptures. He even said he hurt just looking at the ultrasound,, and that no wonder I was in such pain. I got a cortisone shot, pain pills, strong anti-inflammatory pills, and he wanted me to get a pneumatic walking air boot. That thing was $ 396.00! Insurance paid some, but I still had to pay $155.86 my part! It has a turn valve that you turn it one way and it inflates, and it is really heavy, and he put me in a compression sock to wear with it. I had broken a toe before, and had a light boot then, and it was $40.00 and I thought that was high, but this thing has helped, and I can boot scoot around with it on, without crying out in agony! It probably is the cortisone shot that has really helped. I don’t like them, but sometimes they are necessary. I have to go back to him before the month is up, and I don’t know how long it will take to heal. The boot really does help, but the price is awful! I have gotten a new respect for people with their walking and foot problems, even though I have had my share of things that go wrong with my feet.last_img read more


More NI groups line up to support Giving Tuesday

first_img Following the success of last year’s first ever Giving Tuesday event in Northern Ireland the call has gone out to charities and fundraisers to mobilise for this year’s event on 1st December.#GivingTuesdayNI was embraced by groups across Northern Ireland in a bid to raise funds, find volunteers and to improve awareness of the charitable work being done by so many people.The #GivingTuesday campaign began as a grassroots movement four years ago in the USA in response to the high volume shopping days of Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) and Cyber Monday – the busiest online shopping day of the year.#GivingTuesdayNI is being co-ordinated by Giving Northern Ireland and The Charities Aid Foundation and last year saw a high profile campaign with activity from a range of charities.Sandara Kelso-Robb, Strategic Advisor with Giving Northern Ireland, said at a #GivingTuesdayNI celebration event in East Belfast:“This year we want to make it even better and bigger than before and we’d like people to get in touch and tell us what they are planning to do.”Participants from last year’s event were presented with certificates celebrating their accomplishments.

For the good of the country, stop censoring

first_img Follow the news on Sudan November 25, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 For the good of the country, stop censoring SudanAfrica SudanAfrica News to go further Organisation March 29, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Sudan : Press freedom still in transition a year after Omar al-Bashir’s removal Censorship is useless because it is powerless against reality. What is the point of raids by security agencies on printing presses and newspaper offices? Suppressing reports does not change what you are trying to cover up. A problem is not solved by being masked. Keeping journalists under surveillance, threatening editors and closing newspapers just show the government’s repressive side, expose its weaknesses and create enemies. This is the message that Reporters Without Borders would like to convey to the Sudanese authorities.When we visited Khartoum and El-Fasher in March 2007, we were impressed by the vitality of the Khartoum-based press and the hopes that had been raised by the 2005 peace accord. In a published report entitled “An investigation into a tragedy’s forgotten actors,” we stressed how “active and diverse” Sudan’s media and civil society were, and we condemned the western media’s failure to reflect this important aspect of contemporary Sudan.But current developments are giving us the lie. Khartoum’s privately-owned media are beginning to suffocate and yield to fault-finding security agents who have no place in newspaper offices or their printing presses. Raids and confiscation of issues have been followed by closures or coercive measures by state agencies. All this keeps sabotaging newspapers, forcing them to live in fear and depriving them of significant resources. The journalists themselves can no longer bear this straightjacket, the way they are mistrusted and treated like children by their own government. As if they were responsible for the problems which Sudan is experiencing and which they report to the Sudanese. As if by punishing and harassing them, the government could change any aspect of this reality. It is the readers, not the security agencies, who can best judge and punish a newspaper. All they have to do is stop buying it.The absurd attempt to suppress the reality reported by the Khartoum media resumed on 6 February 2008. It was then that the government secretly decided to restore censorship, an archaic procedure whose disappearance in 2005 was hailed by the entire world. The security agencies began their repressive work on 10 February, eliminating an article from Al-Sahafa. In the days that followed, they prevented Al-Rai al-Shaab from publishing, they interrogated the editors of Al-Ahdaht and Al-Watan at length, they interrogated the editors of Al-Wifaq, Al-Midan, Al-Sudani and Al-Rai al-Aam, and they made nightly visits to Al-Midan’s printing press to have articles removed… The list of incidents has not let up since then.In an attempt to get the country’s rulers to see reason, the staff of Ajras al-Hurriya, Al-Maidan and Al-Rai al-Shaab protested 4 November, few days after an Al-Intibaha journalist was arrested for an article that clearly displeased the authorities.Are the Sudanese any less worried? Is Sudan in less of a crisis? No, the censorship has obviously not helped. The news, if it is true, exists regardless of the newspapers and circulates all the same. That is why Reporters Without Borders urges the Sudanese authorities to lift these absurd and unconstitutional measures that occupy state employees to no purpose and pointlessly punish educated and responsible citizens, both journalists and readers. In the end, censorship renders a greater service to those who thrive in the breeding-ground of rumour and false hope of freedom than to responsible Sudanese who are proud of being able to criticise and of being criticised, proud of being able to face reality with their eyes open. Censorship is pointless, absurd and dangerous. It is time to consign it to a troubled past.By Jean-François Julliard and Léonard Vincent of Reporters Without Borders.

April 27, 2021 Find out more News December 28, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders calls on the Honduran authorities to provide protection to three TV journalists in the northwestern city of San Pedro Sula – Yanina Romero, Carlos Rodríguez and Lourdes Ramírez – who have been getting telephone death threats ever since they reported alleged corruption at a local hospital in early July.The three journalists, who work for KTV, began investigating at Mario Catarino Rivas Hospital after being told about suspicious deaths of patients there. Their report suggested that certain members of the medical staff may have deliberately caused the deaths of patients for the purpose of organ trafficking or commissions from funeral companies.The persons making the threatening calls have identified themselves as doctors or nurses at the hospital, although the hospital’s public relations service has ruled out any possibility that the callers are members of its staff. Several persons have also appeared outside KTV’s premises with an apparently intimidatory intention.“KTV’s staff must be provided with protection as quickly as possible,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “The authorities must take these threats very seriously so that Romero, Rodríguez and Ramírez do not join the list of 37 journalists killed since the 2009 coup.”“The government must, as a matter of urgency, heed the recommendations of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, which says threatened journalists must be given protection.”The level of threats and harassment to which journalists are exposed continues to be very worrying in Honduras.Ricardo Oviedo, the producer of a current affairs programme called “Frente al pueblo, ante la audiencia” on Canal 27 TV, has also been getting death threats. In Oviedo’s case, the threats have been made live on the air by callers using the programme’s phone-in number.“You’ve understood nothing and if carry on, we’ll have your hide,” one caller said. Oviedo was already forced to flee the country for a while, in 2010.last_img read more
