First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Pasadena’s Department of Public Health is asking for more time – and money – to effect the transition of its HIV/AIDS clinic services to a private health services provider.Instead of shutting down the clinic on September 30th and handing operations over to JWCH Institute Inc. as planned, the department will continue to operate the facility until the end of November.“Given the complexities involved and requisite Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approval of the delegation of existing contracts held by the City to JWCH, it may not be possible to complete the transition by September 30, 2015,” Steve Mermell, Assistant City Manager and Acting Public Health Director, wrote in an Agenda Report Monday.“To ensure a smooth transition for the hundreds of clients currently being served by the City’s Andrew Escajeda Clinic, staff is requesting additional budgetary authority to enable the Clinic to operate up to November 30, 2015,” Mermell said.JWCH Institute Inc. is a Los Angeles-based non-profit health services provider contracted by the Public Health Department to operate the Andrew Escajeda Comprehensive Care Services clinic at 1845 N Fair Oaks Avenue which provides HIV/AIDS care.The City Council voted Monday night to approve the extension, which would cost an additional $357,372, to include a net increase of 2.08 Full-Time Equivalents. The Public Health Department said this will be offset by expected revenues of $282,028, for a net cost of $75,344.Earlier this year, the City Council decided to cut HIV/AIDS services and prenatal clinics from the department’s budget in an attempt to get rid of a $2 million deficit. The decision left some 100 HIV patients frequenting the clinic uncertain about their future care.The Public Health Department said the transition of prenatal services – to Pasadena-based CHAPCare – is on track and expected to be completed by the end of December.Transitioning the HIV/AIDS programs, however, is a more complex endeavor, and the department is working with JWCH to address the requirements of the transition.For the HIV/AIDS patients in the Pasadena area, this means services will continue to be provided at 1845 N Fair Oaks, at least until November 30th.For information about services at the HIV/AIDS clinic, visit www.cityofpasadena.net/publichealth/AECCS or call (626) 744-6140.

McKown said the problem with booster clubs is the turnover rate of the people involved in them and there are dozens of clubs districtwide. McKown added that the police can suggest guidelines and procedures to follow, but “there’s really no teeth in it because they’re not associated with the school district.”Chief Todd Hiner said the booster club members are parents. They should have safeguards like a full board and officers. “That way there are checks and balances,” Hiner said.He added that the best thing for people involved in booster clubs is to make sure there is accountability at all levels.“The best thing is to ensure there are multiple layers. The system itself is supposed to be your checks and balances,” Hiner added.

Ector County Independent School District Police Department’s Lt. Scott Mckown said the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Aranda. He said the ECISD police got an arrest warrant for her, but were having trouble locating her, so their investigator reached out to the Marshals Service and they made the arrest.The range of the charge is greater than $2,500 and less than $30,000, police said. Chief of Staff Brian Moersch said $4,300 was missing from the fund and the theft allegedly ranged from October 2016 through August 2017. The new treasurer of the booster club found the discrepancy when she was balancing the books and reported it to the ECISD police, he said.The district’s internal auditor audited the club’s records and determined approximately the amount of money that was missing, Moersch said.

Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office(NEW ORLEANS) — Police have arrested a New Orleans man after he allegedly tried to break into a jail with a backpack full of illegal drugs.Nicholas Celius, 23, allegedly scaled a perimeter wall outside of the Orleans Justice Center on Monday night, making his way to the facility’s recreational yard, when a guard spotted and sounded the alarm, authorities told ABC New Orleans affiliate WGNO-TV.Celius fled, leaving behind several packages containing drugs and other contraband, but officers with the New Orleans Police Department apprehended him nearby a bit later, the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.Authorities said they discovered a backpack containing marijuana, 13 pieces of crack cocaine and heroin at the time of Celius’ arrest, according to WGNO. The Sheriff’s Office believes he planned to leave the drugs with an inmate at the facility.The Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office did not say how he managed to get over the wall. Police are still searching for two unnamed suspects who fled the scene with Celius.Celius was charged with drug possession, resisting arrest and for an outstanding warrant from Dallas, according to court records.It’s unclear as of early Wednesday morning whether Celius has an attorney.Sheriff Marlin Gusman called Celius’ arrest a reminder of the office’s commitment to combating smuggling.“The Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office will continue to aggressively combat the constant efforts of individuals to introduce narcotics into the jail,” Gussman said. “We appreciate the diligence of our staff to detect this latest threat, as well as the quick response of the New Orleans Police Department.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Employers must learn to value the disabledOn 28 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today When theDisability Discrimination Act was launched, the workplace was a key target andthe new law replaced a quota system that employers had ignored for decades. The thenTory Government was turning to the stick because it was clear that appealing tothe better nature of employers had failed. Four yearson, no less a figure than Prime Minister Tony Blair is set to launch a newinitiative for the Disability Rights Commission. The new campaign will askemployers to set an example by committing themselves to hitting targets toreduce discrimination. Is thislatest move a tacit admission that the Disability Discrimination Act has notworked? The legislation has not led to a sea-change in how employers view thedisabled – a recent survey showed four out of five had never even heard of theAct. And thecase law that has emerged from the Act, and which has given headaches to manypersonnel professionals, has not provided definitive answers to the fundamentalproblems in the Act – the difficulty of deciding what is “reasonable”discrimination and of defining who is disabled.What canbe done? First, the law should be amended so that it is clear that employersare only justified in discriminating against the disabled when the individualcannot perform the essential functions of the job or is a health and safetyhazard. However, no legislation in this grey area is ever going to be a perfectinstrument. Ultimatelyit is up to good employers to lead a culture change in the workplace. The pastrecord of UK companies is poor, but the latest initiative offers an opportunityto create a future where disabled people are included and valued – and that canonly be good for business.

1. The oxygen consumption of four species of inshore gastropods from Signy Island, Antarctica was measured at −1.7 and +0.5°C in seawater. The limpet Nacella concinna (Strebel) showed a decrease in oxygen consumption with settlement in the respirometers, but a Trophon species showed no such settlement response over 24 hr.2. The oxygen consumption of the Antarctic gastropods is higher than that of some temperate intertidal species both acutely exposed to 0dgC and kept at that temperature for 11 days.3. However, the oxygen consumption of Antarctic species fall on a line relating oxygen consumption and temperature for some temperate gastropods when the measurements were made at their normal environmental temperatures.
