Sidra Medicine marks World Prematurity Day

Sidra Medicine - in purple
* The QF entity lights up hospital in purple in recognition of premature and sick babies

Sidra Medicine marked World Prematurity Day on 17 November in support of raising awareness about preterm birth.  The hospital hosted several information sessions with staff and parents and also lit up its main building in purple, the official color for the observance. World Prematurity Day is observed on 17 November each year to raise awareness of preterm birth and the concerns of preterm babies and their families worldwide.
Dr. Charlotte Tscherning, the Division Chief of Neonatology at Sidra Medicine said:
 

Dr. Charlotte Tscherning – Div. Chief of Neonatology

“Approximately 15 million babies are born preterm each year, accounting for about one in 10 of all babies born worldwide. In addition, premature birth is the leading cause of death globally in children under the age of five. For preterm babies who survive, the additional burden of prematurity-related disability may affect families and health systems. Observing this important day is a major step towards raising awareness, educating families and

We also wanted to acknowledge the role of our own Neonatal ICU staff and their tireless efforts in saving the lives of premature and sick babies at our hospital.”

On 17 November, the NICU team from Sidra Medicine gathered with families whose babies were NICU patients to mark the occasion along with senior leadership, including Mr.

Eme said: “Thank you to everyone at Sidra Medicine who took such good care of us. We spent seven months in the NICU ward and we could feel the love and care for our little fighter Winifred.  We are truly grateful for the amazing care and for saving her life.

Medicine Hat Remembers: Masks and poppies on, Hatters commemorate Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day looked quite a bit different this year, but the message stayed the same.

“We must never forget.”

Local Legion president Sheila Donner led 100-plus people through this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony, and made sure that message was clear for all of those in attendance.

“We need to honour our veterans and we need to need to think of them more,” she said. “Many of them have scars that you and I can’t see.”

Those in attendance needed to dress in warm clothes, due to snowfall and weather around – 10.

“It’s cold out, but what’s important is that we’re here,” said Donner. “The crowd here today shows that Canada does appreciate their veterans and the sacrifices they made.

“Sometimes we can forget about veterans in the hustle and bustle, but we need to be thankful.

“Seeing everyone out here today shows me that Medicine Hat remembers.”

The ceremony was modified compared to previous years, with those in attendance being required to wear a mask. Wreaths were placed at the base of the cenotaph before the ceremony started. At the end of the program, individuals representing different organizations took turns walking up to the cenotaph and wreaths to salute.

The program was streamed live to the Cook Southland Funeral Chapel Facebook page. It can be viewed there.

Rita Myson got the ceremony early and walked to the cenotaph to see her great grandfather’s name on the mural.

Myson retired as a master corporal in 2008 and was a cook for 22 years with the armed forces. Her great grandfather John Myson died at Vimy Ridge during the First World War.

“I come out every year,” said Myson. “I’ve been a member of the Legion since 2007.

“Today, for me, is about remembering what came before us. If you don’t remember what came before you, you’re doomed to repeat it.

“Canadians are known as peacekeepers, but we’re known as some of the fiercest fighters out there.

“People before us fought for the freedoms we enjoy today and today we remember that.”

Myson says a Remembrance gathering is especially important this year.

“There has been so much isolation,” she said. “It’s important to come together and to stand together in unity.

“If anyone is feeling isolated or lonely, they can reach out to us at the Legion.

“I just want Medicine Hatters to keep smiling because tomorrow will always be a better day if you keep smiling.”

Bowling Green dentist with military background gives back for Veterans Day

At Dr. Alexis Klassen’s dental office, military roots run deep.

“I have many family members who have served, who are currently serving,” Dental Assistant Jessica Bowley said.

“All the men mostly in my family have served in the U.S. Army,” Dental Assistant Olivia Markley said.

That’s why Klassen spent Veterans Day giving active and retired military members a reason to smile with free checkups.

“Today means a lot when somebody is giving back to the veterans, especially in this time,” Navy Reservist Jackson Russell said.

It’s part of a new tradition at her practice called the 1% Salute, a nod to the fact that only 1% of Americans ever serve in the U.S. military.

Dr. Alexis Klassen, Owner, Alexis Klassen & Associates : That means a lot. I mean that inspired me to look at the men and women in our service totally differently,” Klassen said.

And she’s also part of that 1%. After spending five years of active duty in the Navy, Doctor Klassen moved to the reserves where she’s currently a commander.

On a day where the community should be thanking her for her service, she’s thanking her community for theirs.

“For me to be able to say thank you in a really unique way to some of the people I served with, to people of the community, the neighbors and people I see in church or that go to school with my kids, it’s awesome.

Klassen’s dental assistants also stepped in to give back in their own way. After announcing the 1% Salute, many of her employees offered to work their shifts at no cost.

“One by one, my staff came up and said, ‘If you’re going to do that, I want to donate my hours and buy the vets electronic toothbrushes,’ or,  ‘I want to donate my hours and give an extra room so we can clean eight more people’s teeth.’

Although this was the first time Doctor Klassen offered the 1% Salute, she said she plans on doing it again next Veterans Day on a much larger scale.

Veterans also received free gift bags and handmade cards from students at St. Aloysius, thanking them for their service.

Nasir fails fitness test on second day

Nasir was among the 33 cricketers who underwent the beep test on the second day, and disappointed along with another out-of-favor national player Gazi

Bangladesh discard Nasir Hossain succumbed to another low by failing a fitness test Tuesday on the second day of the fitness tests being carried out by Bangladesh Cricket Board on the cricketers outside the national side, High Performance Unit and U-19 team.

The 28-year old Nasir failed the fitness test last season before the National Cricket League and only obtained 8.5 in the beep test, well short of the minimum 11.

Nasir was among the 33 cricketers who underwent the beep test on the second day, and disappointed along with another out-of-favor national player Sohag Gazi.

Experienced cricketers like Abdur Razzak, Enamul Haque Jr, Shahriar Nafees and Mohammad Ashraful all passed the fitness test ahead of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup, scheduled for later this month.

Shakib had reached the SBNS premises for the fitness test of the cricketers, being carried by Bangladesh Cricket Board for the upcoming Bangabandhu T20 Tournament 2020

Posted by Sports Tribune on Monday, 9 November 2020

The players’ draft will be held tomorrow ahead of which the chief of the national selection panel Minhajul Abedin informed that only those who pass the fitness test will be allowed to play the T20 tournament, the fixtures of which are yet to be finalized.

BCB is also mulling allowing spectators at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium during the T20 competition as they are currently in talks with government authorities.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Shakib al Hasan will begin his road to competitive cricket return by appearing in the fitness test Wednesday.

Following the expiration of his one-year ICC ban on October 29, Shakib returned to the home of cricket in Mirpur Monday on the first day of the fitness eight where eight cricketers failed the beep test out of a total of 73.

Christian Pulisic’s fitness ‘day to day,’ says USMNT coach as Chelsea star battles hamstring injury

Christian Pulisic’s fitness is “day to day,” according to U.S. Men’s National Team coach Gregg Berhalter.

The winger has only made five appearances for Chelsea this season after suffering a fresh injury setback shortly after his return from a long-term layoff.

Pulisic pulled up with a hamstring issue during the warmup before Chelsea’s 3-0 win away to Burnley at the end of October. He had previously been out for around two months after tearing his hamstring in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, in which Pulisic scored the opening goal.

DeCOURCY: Berhalter showing unexpected gift for recruiting

The current international break sees the USMNT play its first fixtures since February, with friendly games against Wales and Panama.

Pulisic joined up with Berhalter’s squad for the games despite his lack of fitness, and the coach has praised his commitment to the cause.

“Christian is in camp and is listed as day to day,” Berhalter told Fox Sports. “It really says a lot about Christian that he wasn’t playing for Chelsea but he wanted to come into this camp and be around the team and his status is day to day.”

Former Chelsea left back Ashley Cole said he expects Pulisic to give manager Frank Lampard “a good dilemma” once he is back to full fitness.

Pulisic starred at the end of last season and, with Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner finding their feet in the Premier League, things are looking up at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Berhalter was also pleased to welcome Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie back to the squad, though he won’t have Josh Sargent at his disposal for the upcoming games.

Sargent was not permitted to leave for international duty by his club Werder Bremen, citing Germany’s current coronavirus restrictions. That had led to some concern that McKennie, who recovered from Covid-19 after testing positive in October, might also struggle to link up with his international teammates.

“With Weston, we were able to get him out of Italy and the situation is changing by the hour,” Berhalter said. “Josh Sargent wasn’t able to join the team but Weston is able to come.”

The USMNT will be looking to hit form before its 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign begins in the new year.
