Partnerships between Northern Health, Ministry of Health, First Nations Health Authority, municipal governments and communities across northern B.C. have helped recruit seven new nurse practitioners to the Northern Health region, which First Nations Health Authority’s chief nursing officer, Becky Palmer, says will help increase access to primary care.“Nurse practitioners offer a scope of practice that make them an extremely valued asset for rural and remote First Nations communities, as well as citizens accessing services in the urban setting,” Palmer said.“We have heard from our clinicians and other partners working in First Nations communities, that nurse practitioners are an important contributor to enhancing care for First Nations.”Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with a graduate level nursing degree in advanced practice.Advertisement They are qualified to see patients for acute issues like a cold or injury, follow patients with chronic health issues like diabetes or high blood pressure, provide prenatal care, do check-ups and physical exams, and prescribe medications. PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Northern Health has announced that Fort St. John has received two new nurse practitioners, among the seven that have joined health centres across Northern B.C.Michael Tantongco recently completed his studies at the University of Victoria, and is a nurse practitioner with a background in pediatric oncology. Virginia Davis recently completed her master’s program through University of Northern British Columbia, and has moved back to Fort St. John to work here as a nurse practitioner.

Asia’s biggest long-haul low-cost carrier AirAsia X says it will return to London in 2018, following its Singapore competitor Scoot’s decision this week to launch its first European services in 2017.Scoot will fly from Singapore to Athens four times a week from June 2017 with its launch offers marking the return of ultra-cheap fares on the world’s longest air route between Australia and Europe.Scoot’s offer of a one-way seat from east coast Australia to Athens for $A419 are similar to the $A800 return fares from Sydney and Melbourne to London and Paris when AirAsia X last flew there before services were terminated in 2012 – roughly halving existing fares in those markets.Read AirAsia X’s China plansAirAsia X chief executive Ben Ismail is waiting on the delivery of the first of 66 new ultra-long-haul Airbus A330-900 neo (new engine option) jetliners from 2018 before announcing details of European services, but told AirlineRatings.com London will be the first destination.Only the airport remains to be decided: AirAsia X last flew to London Gatwick airport south of the city before launching its first flights to Stansted airport, north of London.”For us, it’s all about the airport deal,” Ismail says. “If we can find a very attractive airport deal with good takeoff and landing slots, we’ll go for that.”We’re confident we can stimulate any airport that we go into so (in London) it may be Stansted, it may be Gatwick or, if I’m the luckiest person in the world, Heathrow would be great.” Ismail says AirAsia founder and chief executive Tony Fernandes “has done very well in the past trying to find routes that are very sexy where everyone dreams to go”. “Last time, Paris was filling up, London was filling up – they were the two places people wanted to go,” Ismail says. “The only issue in the past was the cost of operations was very high. Even though the yields (average fares) and the loads were very good, it was still not enough to break even. With the new aircraft, I’m quite confident we can make some sort of money.”Ismail says that, in the long term, the airline will look at other Euro destinations, such as Rome and Frankfurt. The AirAsia X chief also says the group won’t shut down its Indonesian subsidiary, which this year axed its four weekly A330 flights from Melbourne and Sydney to Bali because of heavy losses. The flights will end on September 1 and there appears little chance they will be restarted in the near future.Though Indonesia AirAsia X has separate ownership from its short-haul cousin, Indonesia AirAsia, it has faced serious regulatory problems with the Indonesian Government since the short-haul affiliate crashed an Airbus A320 in December 2014, killing all 162 people aboard.”We’re trying to look at the business entirely – how it’s going to fit into the whole vision,” Ismail says of Indonesia AirAsia X, which now has just one route – from Jakarta to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, launched in December 2015. “We’re reviewing it with regulators there to see how we can move forward. It’s still going to exist but whether it’s going to fall within one company or two, we don’t know yet.”

This works on an ad hoc basis.”The after-hours facility is not only for children permanently enrolled in the day-care facility, but also for any other child needing evening supervision.This service is mostly used by parents who have an evening function but don’t have a babysitter at home to take care of the children while they are away.“Sometimes you find that some of the working mothers are from Durban or Cape Town, and they are working in Johannesburg where they don’t have the support of family and friends. That’s where we come in,” explains Cardier.“It is a reality of our times that both parents work, and we find more and more women in high profile positions, who are often required to do a fair amount of travelling,” reads the hotel’s website.According to Cardier, parents don’t usually use the hotel for an extended period of time.The longest stay at the hotel has been four days. The mother of the child, a single parent, was away on a business conference at the time.Another unique service that the Baby Hotel offers is the opportunity for only children – who spend a lot of time alone – to interact with other children. Cardier explains that parents bring their children along to the facility for this purpose from time to time.“When children who don’t attend our day-care centre arrive, some are excited to be with other children, while others will shy away and only interact with the caregiver,” she says.Stimulating child growthA typical day at the Baby Hotel includes loads of fun activities for the children, especially for those between 18 and 36 months.The day’s programme starts at 8am with breakfast, which lasts about 30 minutes.Next is a series of exercises aimed developing the child’s fine motor skills and coordination – these include building puzzles and making simple beaded necklaces.Sensory play, another of the day’s activities, encourages children to use and develop their sense of touch, hearing, smell, sight and taste.“The use of sensory materials provides opportunities for self-directed and guided play to encourage a variety of different skills to develop,” according to an early childhood development website, Play Activities.The Baby Hotel encourages children to experiment with different textures and “get dirty”.“It’s important that kids learn to get dirty, it’s an important part of growing up,” says Cardier.Sensory play activities at the hotel include making mud in the sandpit, breaking eggshells, playing with jelly and shaving cream.“Through the manipulation of materials such as pouring, moulding, lifting, carrying and sorting, children will improve their fine and gross motor skills,” Play Activities goes on to say.To ensure parents are kept up to date, each child has a record book at the hotel, which notes what they eat and drink and the frequency thereof. The record book also details the number of times nappies are changed (for the younger children) as well as sleeping and waking up times.Vital serviceAs to why establishments like the Baby Hotel are necessary, especially in the cities where parents find themselves torn between home and career demands, Cardier is adamant that they provide a necessary service.“We are an important support system to families. We allow couples ‘mummy and daddy’ time.”“Too often parents, out of love, pay too much attention to the children and forget each other and this can contribute to the breakdown of a relationship, so it’s important for parents to make time for each other,” says Cardier.Comments or queries?

Athandiwe Sikade’s entry was an animated retelling of uMboleki, a humorous children’s story with a deeper message about how to behave appropriately in society. (Image: Nal’ibali)A seven-year-old has become South Africa’s Story Bosso after winning the Nal’ibali storytelling competition.Athandiwe Sikade of Khayelitsha in Cape Town, who is only seven, is the winner of the competition. Itis a nationwide talent search to get people of all ages excited about reading and telling stories.The competition invited members of the public to send in audio or video clips of themselves reading or telling their favourite stories.“We collected more than 2 000 submissions from across the country,” said Jade Jacobsohn, the managing director of the Nali’bali reading-for-enjoyment campaign.”Stories came in from all age groups and in all languages.“They ranged from those that made us laugh, to those that made us cry, but best of all, they showed us that a spirit of storytelling – oral, written and in many languages is alive and well, which we can use to inspire children to want to read and write.”Athandiwe is joined by two runners-up: 12-year-old Atang Makgata, who was selected for her original story, A Dream About the Enchanted Forest, and Kerrin Kokot and Jayne Batzofin who entered their bilingual story, The Lonely Frog, in English and Sign Language.The finalists each receive cash prizes, Ackermans vouchers as well as a home library with books courtesy of Exclusive Books, Bargain Books, Cambridge University Press, Jacana Media and the Save Our Seas Foundation.Jacobsohn added that while they were delighted to have discovered so many promising storytellers, Story Bosso was ultimately about helping to root a culture of reading in South Africa.“Sharing stories builds children’s knowledge, concepts, language ability and imagination. So, growing the storytelling and reading habit at home, is a perfect way to help children become motivated and curious learners with greater capacity to succeed at school,” said Jacobsohn.A STORY ON BEHAVING APPROPRIATELYAccording to Nal’ibali, competing against 14 other finalists for the title of South Africa’s first Story Bosso, Athandiwe was chosen for her spirited storytelling style and skill relative to her young age.Her entry was an animated retelling of uMboleki, a humorous children’s story with a deeper message about how to behave appropriately in society.Athandiwe received a surprise visit from renowned local author and Story Bosso celebrity judge, Sindiwe Magona, who treated her and her class to a special storytelling of her own.“In books and stories you will find all the dreams you will ever need,” said Magona.”You will find all the truth the world can give and all the fun there is for each and every boy or girl, little, or big, or somewhere in between.”Athandiwe is from Chumisa Primary in Khayelitsha, where Nal’ibali hosted one of 30 Story Bosso pop-up auditions to source stories directly from the campaign’s network of reading clubs and communities across the country.Along with its partners, Times Media, National Book Week, Jozi Book Fair, Soweto Theatre, Vodacom Teacher Centres, Mad About Art and Africa Unite, auditions were held which served as an opportunity for Nal’ibali to provide caregivers and children across the country with books and literacy materials in their home languages.Over 13 000 books and 26 500 story cards in a range of South African languages were distributed over the duration of the competition.

So, did you hear the story about two rabbits from Arlo Guthrie? I didn’t think so. Well, in 1976 at the Temple Music Festival in Ambler, Pa., Arlo Guthrie was interviewed by Peter Stone Brown. Peter was asking Arlo how it felt to be touring with Pete Seeger, singing and protesting the issues of their day. He was kind of asking Arlo if anybody was listening to him and Pete. And Arlo responded by saying his thoughts and ideas weren’t new; that they had, in fact, been thought by people before him. He explained, “This is a history of good guys at work,” and he was glad to be part of it.He encouraged the radio listeners not to get discouraged, and then he went on to relay the story of two rabbits, which his father had told him as a boy: “The mama rabbit and the papa rabbit was walkin’ around one day. And the hounds start comin’ after ’em. And they were runnin’ through the bush, and finally the rabbits end up in this big hollow log, and they can’t get out ’cause there’s dogs at either end. And the mama rabbit looks at the papa one, says, “Pop, this looks like it.” But he had a smile on his face and says, “Let’s just sit here ’til we outnumber ’em.”Pretty good, eh? As a green builder or remodeler, have you ever felt like one of those rabbits about to be eaten by another old, mangy dog who thinks he owns the neighborhood? I often have. In my market, there are plenty of old-school builders and remodelers ready to eat this tree-huggin’ green rabbit for lunch! They are used to running the neighborhood their way, and they don’t want us rabbits moving in. Fortunately, every time I look around I see another rabbit and another rabbit and another rabbit! I haven’t counted the dogs lately, but based on their lower level of barking these past couple of years, I don’t think there are as many of them as there used to be.So, the next time you doubt your decision to go green or you become discouraged by the barking of your neighborhood dogs, take solace and remember a few more words from Arlo Guthrie: “The burden of the world isn’t restin’ on any one particular shoulder. So people shouldn’t be so anxious. They should just take it easy. Do what you can. Have fun doin’ it. Love your kids and your old lady.”
The president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors says that he will propose a resolution requiring all new buildings in the city, both residential and commercial, to include rooftop photovoltaic (PV) arrays where feasible, SFGate.com reports.There is “potential for sustainability on every single roof in the city,” David Chiu said. He called for PV arrays, rooftop gardens, or both on all new construction in an initiative called “Solar Vision 2020,” which would simultaneously reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the city and benefit the solar industry.Chiu acknowledged that might not be practical on all buildings. HVAC equipment can take up a lot of space on the roofs of high-rise towers, for example, and some houses don’t lend themselves to rooftop PV installations.“Certainly for commercial buildings we believe this is absolutely feasible,” he told SFGate. “If it were up to me we would do it on larger residential [buildings] and then see what’s possible on smaller residential. But at this point we need to get the conversation going.” Solar Vision 2020 has broad goalsChiu’s proposal contains several other provisions:A San Francisco program that helps homeowners and business owners pay for the installation of solar panels, now scheduled to expire in 2018, would be made permanent.By the year 2020, the capacity of PV installations in the city would double, from its current level of 26 megawatts (MW) to 50 MW.PV arrays with a combined capacity of 2 MW would be installed at “tenant-occupied residences” each year.The director of the Housing Action Coalition, Tim Colen, didn’t argue with the intent of the initiative. But he said that California already has the toughest standards in the country for new construction and that Chiu’s plan could increase construction costs “at a time when we’ve got a crisis in affordability,” the web site reported.
What’s the point of posting video online if nobody is going to see it? Up your views with these basic tips for posting online video.To successfully use video online to boost your business, career, site traffic, etc. there are some very simple things that you need to get right. Some of these basic dos and don’ts might seem too obvious to mention, yet people seem to get them wrong anyway. As a film editor and blogger, these are the 10 things I’d consider pretty foundational to successfully using video online.1. Do Make it ShareableWhat makes the internet such a great place to put your video is the simple and obvious fact that a whole lot of people can see it. The chances of this happening are hugely increased by ensuring that your video is shareable through as many avenues as possible.Ensuring that your video can be embedded on other sites is a simple one click process, but publishers often seem to go out of their way to make this impossible. Granted, keeping control over your online content might have its advantages (usually advertising revenue – if you have to watch the video on one site only, that site will get all the traffic) but this advantage is vastly outweighed by the extended reach to be gained by allowing the video to spread ‘virally’.2. Do Add a Call to ActionHopefully your video will be so good that people will want to do something as a result. A call to action might be as simple as a ‘like’ or as useful as a share, but do prompt your viewers on what to do next. If you want them to get in touch with you, then make sure that’s really easy to do. If you’re hosting your video on Youtube or Vimeo, make the most of the description area to provide all of your crucial information. Incredibly obvious, yes, but it’s astounding how often it doesn’t contain much helpful information.3. Do Add an End Logo and BrandingMake sure your viewers know who made it. This could involve an opaque ‘bug‘ in the corner of the video, which is helpful for dissuading people from ripping your video and re-posting it as their own. Personally, I would aim for the best viewing experience for your audience and leave that off. Just add something to the end that also includes a memorable URL. 4. Do Track Your Stats and SharesIf your online video does find an audience, be sure to keep an eye on the stats, shares, and other places the video ends up. The people who liked this video might like your other videos, products, services, work, etc. Be sure to engage anyone who comments on or shares your work.5. Do Use Copyrighted Material – But Only Under Fair Use GuidelinesIf you’re going to use copyrighted material in your video, make sure you’re abiding by the Fair Use principles which most countries have within their legal framework. You can read YouTube’s helpful guide on it here. In the US, these four factors need to be considered:The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposesThe nature of the copyrighted workThe amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted workIf you’re so minded, you could add a Creative Commons license to your work in order to help others know how you would like it to be treated.6. Don’t Use Copyrighted MusicThis is one of the biggest give aways that a video has been produced by an amateur filmmaker. Do yourself and everyone else a favor and buy a track from a reputable and high quality royalty free music site, like PremiumBeat.com. There’s plenty of music to choose from.7. Don’t Make it Overly Long.This is a pet-peeve of mine for online video. The maxim “less is more” is a reliable rule of thumb. I’ve written more about why you need to make your edit shorter in my previous post: ”Why Your Editing Isn’t Good Enough”.8. Don’t Make it for Yourself Be aware of your audience and make the video for them, not for yourself.Instead of thinking “How can I communicate what’s so great about my work/product/business/idea/opinion/ etc?” consider “What is it that people want to know/feel/discover/buy etc?” The next point is a practical example of this mentality at work.9. Don’t Give it an Obtuse TitleOne of the most influential variables to the success of your online video is the title you give it. Think like a member of your target audience and label it in a way that would help them to find it. Think about the kind of search terms that you Google and you’ll know what I mean. How To…. and The Best… are always helpful starting points.10. Don’t Give up After the First GoIf you’ve only just started making videos and sharing them online, don’t give up after your first attempt, even if no one but your mum watched it. Iterate and improve as you go. Incorporate feedback and suggestions and emulate the things that you see others doing successfully.As I said at the beginning, none of these suggestions are anything but obvious, but yet if you lay a decent foundation in the details, the sky is your limit.Do these tips work for you? Have any other foolproof methods to help your fellow filmmakers get more exposure online? Give us the goods in the comments below.
