The 4-to-6-week process involves high doses of chemotherapy at the outset.Still posted on social media late Friday that Leah “hit a pretty serious complication,” with her liver affected by the chemotherapy.Leah Still waves during a ceremony in the first half of an NFL football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014, in Cincinnati. Leah, who is battling cancer, was watching her father, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still, play for the first time. (AP Photo/AJ Mast)“They caught it early so hopefully it gives the doctors a better chance of stopping it from getting aggressive,” Still posted. “As you can imagine our minds are all over the place but we’re going to try and remain positive!”The girl was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. Doctors removed a tumor from her abdomen, and she started getting chemotherapy to kill cancer cells in her bone marrow. She’s being treated on the East Coast, and the Bengals have supported Still’s decision to miss organized offseason workouts in Cincinnati to be with her.Still agreed to a one-year contract to stay with the Bengals in March.His daughter’s fight against cancer has gotten international attention. The Bengals donated $1.3 million from sales of Still’s jersey to research and treatment of pediatric cancer. The donation was made during a Thursday night game at Paul Brown Stadium last season, with Leah and former Mount St. Joseph freshman basketball player Lauren Hill in attendance.Still befriended Hill, who also raised money for cancer research. The 19-year-old basketball player died last month from an inoperable brain tumor.last_img read more

This November, Dublin and Galway will hold a rematch of their 2015 battle followed by a clash of the champions when Tipperary take the pitch to play Clare.“Nearly 28,000 fans packed Fenway Park and experienced firsthand the excitement of when hurling returned to the ballpark for the first time in 61 years in 2015 so we’re really looking forward to bringing the fastest game on grass back for two matches this November,” said Mark Lev, Managing Director of Fenway Sports Management. “We are fortunate to have great partners in AIG, the GPA, the GAA and the City of Boston to help bring this exhilarating sport back to Fenway and proud to play host to one of Ireland’s most traditional sports and further our commitment to bringing unique events and experiences to Boston.”Title sponsor AIG has been an official sponsor to the Dublin GAA since November 2013 and has been committed to raising the profile of hurling and other Gaelic Games to a broader global audience.“AIG in Ireland is delighted to be bringing hurling back to the United States in 2017 after a successful 2015 event,” said Declan O’Rourke, General Manager of AIG Ireland. “Hurling is a unique and wonderful part of our culture, played with great passion and skill for thousands of years. It gives us great pride to share our exciting games at the highest level with the people of Boston again in November. ”Similar to 2015, teams will play a modified version of hurling called “Super 11’s” which reduces the pitch to 11 players and the only way to score is under the crossbar into the net. A goal inside the designated scoring zone is worth three points, while scoring from outside the zone is worth five points.“After an immensely successful event in 2015, we are delighted that hurling is coming back to Boston and Fenway Park” said GPA Chief Executive Officer Dermot Earley. “Playing our games in iconic sports venues like Fenway Park further promotes the growth and interest of our games in the United States and worldwide. Our players are looking forward to a great doubleheader on the pitch at Fenway this November.”In addition to the Hurling Classic, AIG and FSM have teamed up to offer attendees a lively Irish festival complete with Irish food, music and dancing.

‘Disgraceful’ delays leave children waiting over a year for mental health assessments

first_imgChildren and teenagers in the north west are being forced to wait up to a year for assessments for Mental Health Services, according to new data.Waiting list data from the HSE reveals that children in HSE CHO Area 1, which includes counties Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Monaghan and Cavan, continue to face waiting times of up to 15 months to undergo an initial medical assessment following GP referral.The figures reveal that as of the end of October, there were 240 children across the local HSE region awaiting to access the service, nine of whom have been on the waiting list for over nine months now while a further eight children have been waiting over a year to receive an appointment. The data was received by Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty, who branded the waiting times as ‘disgraceful’.Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, or ‘CAMHS’, provides assessment and treatment for young people and their families who are experiencing mental health difficulties. Children must first receive a referral to CAMHS from their GP before they can access the vital supports.Deputy Doherty said young people in the CHO Area 1 face longer wait times than others across the state. He said: “Children in CHO Area 2 which takes in Galway, Roscommon and Mayo for example face a maximum wait time of six months, while those living in CHO Area 7 which includes parts of counties Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare have a maximum waiting time of nine months. “Clearly, the current waiting list data for children’s mental health services shows that there is no equity in the system and what we are seeing is yet another example of postcode health care where patient outcomes are dependent on where in the state you live.“These regional variations aside, this situation is having long-term unnecessary consequences on vulnerable children and it is affecting every aspect of their development.”Deputy Doherty stated that he intends to continue to hold the government to account over this “appalling failure” in order to provide timely interventions to young people here in Donegal and this region.‘Disgraceful’ delays leave children waiting over a year for mental health assessments was last modified: January 9th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CAMHSChild and Adolescent Mental Health ServicesDeputy Pearse Dohertylast_img read more

How to Think Like an Inventor

first_imgIntel has a program where employees can submit inventions for consideration to be filed as a patent.  It is a very cool program because having a patent is a very compelling way to prove that you are actually an inventor.  But, many ideas get rejected, often leaving the prospective inventors feeling dejected.   As a result many of these folks simply stop inventing.I know all about rejection.  Over the course of a few years I had written and submitted 50 inventions to various Intel intellectual property committees.  All were rejected.  Now, that was a long time ago.  My track record, as of the last few years, has improved substantially for taking inventions through our committees and on the path to patenting.  In fact, I now teach classes on “How to Think Like an Inventor.”Reflecting on my own experiences as well as observing the behavior of inventors across Intel Corporation I have found some significant differences between prolific inventors and those that either give or never try.The top five differences are:Do not be afraid of failing.  This is a big one.  In fact, this listed first for a reason.  Prospective inventors often have all sort of fears, “What if they think my idea is dumb? What if they reject my idea? What if someone already invented it?”  The rule is simple.  You will fail.  You will fail a lot.  And that is OK!  Sure, I grind my teeth every time I have an invention rejected but then I move on. Invent, don’t engineer.  This one is very tricky.  How does one determine if an idea is an invention or simply good engineering.  Ask yourself, “Is there magic in the idea?  Did you come up with an idea that  others, who are similarly skilled, would not be expected to think of also?”Consider all the data in the system.  Every invention is a system of sorts.  It will have inputs, actions and outputs.  For the inputs you should go through a rigorous exercise to identify all of the different types of data in the system.  This is actually a big part of the classes that I give.  Many people very casually consider the data available to them and therefore overlook other possibilities.Imagine beyond the next iteration.  Any product that we have in our hands or on store shelves was conceived of some time ago.  To “invent” a minor improvement of a known system falls into the realm of “non-novel” or “obvious”.  Look beyond that next step, that next iteration.  Think of how a product or system will evolve as new technologies evolve and converge.Finally, are you even working on a problem?  It is very easy, especially in high tech, to invent some sort of gizmo and then to start looking for a problem that the gizmo will solve.  Start by looking for problems and then invent the gizmo.Now, go find some problems and invent solutions.  Good luck and fail a lot.last_img read more
