St. Thomas clinic shines light on elder law issues

first_img St. Thomas clinic shines light on elder law issues Gary Blankenship Senior Editor For four law students at St. Thomas University, participation in the school’s new elder law clinic is more than an opportunity to learn about elder law issues. It’s a chance to be on the cutting edge of both guardianship and technological parts of that practice area.While criminal and civil legal clinics are fairly common at law schools, the St. Thomas program, begun with this fall’s semester, is one of two in Florida to focus on what its backers say will be a fast-growing area given the state and nation’s aging population.“It’s a wonderful opportunity, given that this is such a growing field in Florida and it’s going to be so important,” said David Hook, one of the law students in the clinic. “Whether the social programs that the elderly rely on in Florida remain, increase, or diminish, the field is going to remain and they’re going to have to deal with the issues one way or the other.”While the clinic may be taking its first baby steps, it has some impressive parentage. St. Thomas Assistant Dean CeeCee Dykas said the clinic, and a new elder law course, came about from a melding of interests between the law school’s new dean, former Attorney General Bob Butterworth, the Bar’s Elder Law Section, 17th Circuit probate Judge Mel Grossman, and others.Dykas noted that when Butterworth was attorney general, “The elder law issues were one of his primary areas of focus, largely because of our population, and they frequently are the victims of crime. What he saw when he transitioned to the dean of the law school was an enormous need of legal services for this population.”That includes, she said, probate, guardianship, involuntary commitment, abuse, and fraud.At the same time, the Elder Law Section, which had begun a scholarship program at the state’s law schools in the 2003-04 year, was looking to expand its involvement with law school, Immediate past Chair Stephanie Schneider said a brainstorming session led to the idea of the clinic, to be run with the help of Judge Grossman.“Judge Grossman and I have collaborated before on other ideas, looking for ways we can improve the quality of service the public is receiving and create a more efficient judiciary,” Schneider said. “We realized there was a growing need for elder law services and wouldn’t it be great if we could encourage law school students to find out if this was the right area for them?”Also drawn in were St. Thomas law Prof. Gordon Butler and Miami practitioner Enrique Zamora, who is the adjunct professor for the elder law course and oversees the clinic.Butler said the timing for the clinic was propitious. Last year, the legislature and Gov. Jeb Bush approved a statewide guardianship commission to study guardianship law and practices and recommend changes. Members include Judge Grossman, Butler, and Zamora.“They’re at the cutting edge of what people are thinking and what direction guardianship should be going,” said Hook, which means the students also have a front row seat to those legal evolutions.Hook and the other clinical students are working now by attending hearings in Judge Grossman’s court and studying the cases there.“To be able to sit in on the hearings in the judge’s chambers and then discuss the hearing afterwards with the judge, that’s invaluable,” Hook said. “It gives you a chance to ask ‘What did you think of this, why didn’t you do this or that,’ and you get his reasoning.“It’s just being able to see the workings of the court from the other side. . . . I’ve only seen it from the attorney’s side. You get to see the other side of the law and what the court is thinking and what the court has to deal with.”Sandra Curless, another student in the clinic, found the guardianship hearings in particular “not as adversarial as say a divorce, but they’re very emotionally charged because you’re talking about human beings and their rights, because if a guardian is appointed, a set of rights is taken away from that person.. . . We want to take the least restrictive measures possible so people retain as much of their freedom as they can.”She has also been impressed with observing Butler, Zamora, and Grossman on the guardianship commission and those involved in the court cases.“The people that I’m involved with are just really interested in making the law something we can live with,” Curless said. “I like being around people like that. That’s been the best part of it.”Curless got involved in the clinic after her wills and trust professor suggested it might be a good fit for her, and she has found it intriguing.“There’s a need to know the particulars of the law, what laws might conflict with each other, how they play out in a hearing, and how that results in a delay in someone getting a personal service they need,” she said. “The law is very complex and they don’t always mesh.”It was natural for Hooks to join. He worked in his mother’s law firm for two and a half years before law school, and she concentrates in elder law issues.“I went to law school with the idea of eventually joining her and her practice,” he said.Dykas, Butler, and Schneider said the hope is to expand the clinic to admit more students after its initial semester, and Schneider said the section is also looking at expanding it to other schools. They will certainly have advocates from the initial participants.“I would tell them it could be one of the best experiences of their lives. I highly recommend it,” Curless said.

Churches House Volunteers, Help Heal Devastated Communities

first_imgBy Mary Ann BourbeauThe United Metho­dist Church building in Highlands has a new lease on life.After the church was closed several years ago, the building’s fate was up in the air. It was leased out for a while but then the 65-year-old structure was flooded by Super Storm Sandy. [private]Now the brick church on Bay Avenue has been converted into a space to house volunteers from around the country who come to help rebuild homes damaged by the horrific October storm.It is not the only church in the area to be used to house volunteers helping those in the area recover from Sandy. The First Presbyterian Church of Red Bank also was renovated to host up to 20 people.In Highlands, the leaders of the Greater New Jersey United Methodist Church realized after the storm that area residents were going to need both short-term and long-term help. Under the leadership of Bishop John Schol, they started an independent, nonprofit organization called A Future with Hope, with the goal of rebuilding 500 homes over five years. The focus would be to help those who are elderly, disabled and low income. The organization is now based out of the Highlands church.“Even in the midst of the most challenging times, there is a hopeful future for us, and by working together we can realize those hopes,” Schol said. “A Future with Hope will be around for the long haul, a long-term effort by the United Methodist Church in New Jersey to focus on relief, recovery and mission work.”A Future with Hope, a partner with United Metho­dist Committee on Relief, has received significant funding from the Robin Hood Foundation, the American Red Cross and members of the United Methodist Church.Since it began rebuilding homes in March, the organization has had the help of nearly 1,000 volunteers from 16 states. Most come for a week and stay in one of 10 hosting sites, the largest of which is the Highlands church that opened its doors July 15 and can host up to 100 people at a time.Recently, volunteers from Houston, Texas, stayed in the repurposed church, which now has a kitchen and showers. While men sleep on cots in the sanctuary, women’s cots are in the basement. They worked at a site in Keyport, while another group from St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in North Canton, Ohio, helped rebuild a home in Highlands. Those volunteers, who were staying in a Lacey Township church, worked with a group from Bridgewater at the one-story home that had to be gutted after taking on more than 3 feet of water. Some were skilled in areas such as carpentry; others, including high school students, learned how to Sheetrock, spackle and paint.“Jesus told us to help people,” said the Rev. Erwin Urschitz of Ohio. “We’ve been to help those affected by Katrina five times. We go where the need is, one home at a time, one family at a time, if that’s all you can do. We’re really glad to be helping our brothers and sisters, wherever they might be. We have to do something. We can’t just pray for them.We have to put our boots physically on the ground.”Case managers for A Future with Hope take applications from those in need. Currently, there are 11 homes under construction.Morgan Lalevee, 18, of Bridgewater, volunteered her time at the home in Highlands, learning to spackle and sand walls. She was happy to donate her time, especially after meeting the homeowner.“This house has been in her family for 80 years and she didn’t want to give it up,” Lalevee said. “Her face lit up when she saw how much we got done.”Her clothes and face covered with specks of spackle, Lalevee said she was having fun working on the home.“I enjoy helping people,” she said. “I don’t look at it like I’m giving up my summer. I’m using my time in a better way.”The volunteers, who arrive on Sundays and bring their own bedding to the host church, have an orientation and safety lesson on Mon­days. They then receive their assignments based on need and skill level. A Future with Hope provides them with one meal during the week. Often members of the groups go out and spend money in the community where they are helping, offering another plus for the hard-hit town.“We’re very pleased that (the church building) was transformed to serve the community,” said Beverly Schol, regional manager for A Future with Hope.In Red Bank, the First Presbyterian Church at Tower Hill has also been renovated to accommodate volunteers.“Many of our congregation’s members were affected by Sandy and as a church we needed to respond,” said Sue Elam of Oceanport, chairwoman of the church’s storm recovery team.The volunteers receive their assignments from Gateway Church in Union Beach. During a recent week, 300 people from around the country went there to help. A group from Missouri stayed at Tower Hill while they worked on a home in Keansburg.“We’ve discovered some people have been living in their damaged homes because they have no place else to go,” Elam said. “For people to help them find a path forward has been emotionally uplifting to the homeowners – and it’s personally rewarding for the people who come in to help.”The Red Bank church will only be available to groups in the summer because the space is used as a nursery school during the school year. But Elam expects the church to host volunteers again next year.“So many people have been affected,” she said. “It’s going to be a long road getting people back in their homes.”Additional information about A Future with Hope is available by visiting or calling 732-359-1012.[/private]View the photo gallery herelast_img read more


first_imgPat The Cope Gallagher MEPIreland North West MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher today launched the European Direct Information Centre which will be situated Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair.Speaking at today’s launch, Mr Gallagher stated “Donegal County Council Library Service has hosted the Europe Direct Information Centre since 2005 in Central Library, Letterkenny, when the European Commission initiated the concept of Europe Direct Information Centres as a way to create a network of accessible, local information centres in all EU Member States.”“In 2012, Donegal County Council Library Service was again awarded this contract for the duration of the present call until 2017. This new contract included, in addition to the main EDIC in Central Library, Letterkenny, a further satellite centre situated in Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair, providing services to Gaeltacht areas nationally.” “The mission of the EDIC network is to distribute information and advice about the European Union’s policies, actively promote local and regional debate about the European Union, allow the European institutions to disseminate local and regional information and give the public the opportunity to send feedback to the European Union institution. The Europe Direct Information Centres at the library are the local link between Europe and the citizen.”“The Europe Direct Information Centre network is a European-wide network of information points for EU citizens. In Ireland the Europe Direct relay is delivered regionally through the network of our public libraries. The public library service provides this valuable link between the European Commission and Irish citizens as part of its role at the heart of the community. Libraries are communication and information centres for each community, centrally located and as accessible as possible to their users in every town and city in Ireland. ”“Public library branches enjoy very high footfall and champion a culture of open access to all. As the default source of assistance when seeking information about public and government information, they are particularly suited to the role as facilitators for communications to and for the EU.”“As part of their remit, EDICs also provide a host of events and activities throughout the year, ranging from the annual ‘Have your Say’ Soapbox competition with regional heats and a national final, talks on current EU issues such as agriculture and fisheries funding reform, European folk tales & story times, to debates on EU policy and exhibitions on European history & traditions.” “There are eight Europe Direct Information Centres across the country with coverage stretching countrywide: Letterkenny / Gweedore, Tubbercurry, Ballinalsoe, Mallow, Waterford, Mountmellick, Blanchardstown and Dundalk. The website provides details of all of the contact information for the Centres, all current and future events taking place, information on the EU institutions in Ireland as well as details of and access to central EU developments and current information.”“For the first time since the launch of the Europe Direct initiative in Ireland in 2005, the Centre providing services to the Gaeltacht areas nationally, have been situated here in Leabharlann Pobail Ghaoth Dobhair. Acting in partnership with the main Europe Direct Information Centre in Central Library, Letterkenny, the Centre here in Ghaoth Dobhair carries out all functions, such as providing information on EU institutions and initiatives, answering queries and staging events through the medium of the Irish language. The general public at any time can contact the library here with any queries or initiatives to do with the European Union. If the staff here in Donegal cannot find the answer to a query, they can avail of a direct line to the EU Information Centre in Brussels.” Pat the Cope concluded “To be responsible for this is a great tribute to Donegal County Council, in particular to its library service in Donegal and to the work of the library staff in particular. The fact that the contract for Europe Direct Information Centre has been awarded to Donegal County Council Library Service several times is testimony to this. The manager of the Europe Direct Information Centre Donegal & Gaeltacht Helen McNutt, plus the staff both in Central library and here in Leabharlann Phobail Ghaoth Dobhair, Laura McNutt, Ann Rennicks and Dennis McGeady take great pride in carrying out this function in a professional and enthusiastic manner and it gives me great pleasure today to officially launch Ionad Eolais Eoraip go Díreach Ghaoth Dobhair.” PAT THE COPE OPENS EUROPEAN INFORMATION CENTRE IN GAOTH DOBHAIR was last modified: September 13th, 2013 by John2Share 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)last_img read more

Drugs chief: Indonesian crash pilots on drugs

first_imgMost of Indonesia’s airline accidents have involved pilots who tested positive for drugs, including a Lion Air jet that slammed into the sea four years ago while trying to land on the tourist island of Bali, the chief of the national narcotics agency said.According to a report in The West Australian , Budi Waseso made the comments at a ceremony on Bali to inaugurate traditional village security guards as anti-drug volunteers.The comments are another blow to the image of the country’s airline industry after a video circulated online last month showing an apparently intoxicated pilot in the cockpit of a Citilink passenger plane.News reports this week said two pilots of another airline, Susi Air, owned by the country’s fisheries minister had recently tested positive for drugs.“Almost all air accidents in Indonesia, whether it was just a skid or whatever, the pilots are indicated to be positive for drugs,” Waseso told reporters.Earlier in the day he told the event attended by Bali’s governor that a Lion Air pilot in the spectacular 2013 crash had “hallucinated” that the sea was part of the runway.His comments are at odds with other official accounts. After the crash, which miraculously caused no fatalities among the 108 people on board, the transport ministry said the pilots had not tested positive for drugs. The final report blamed the accident, which occurred in rain, on poor communication between the pilots and inadequate trading.Lion Air, the National Transport Safety Committee and the Ministry of Transport declined to comment.last_img read more

RW Webinar: Rising demand for connectivity drives IoT advances in healthcare

first_imgWhat about HIPAA?A key component that must be integrated into any technology is data security that meets HIPAA requirements.Tom Rose, Director of Business Development, IoT Solutions, at KORE, believes the Internet of Things (IoT) brings smarter technology to bear on the unique challenges facing 21st Century healthcare. “IoT solutions support a customer-centric approach that cuts costs and scales according to need. Whether managing Help Desk inquiries or retrieving peripherals (such as insulin monitoring devices), solutions like KORE support smarter healthcare regardless of vertical.”The rising demand for connectivity cannot function effectively in the old siloed system. An integrated smart-tech approach to the problem brings healthcare into the homes of those who need it. Furthermore, any technology must guarantee data security that meets HIPAA requirements.“The future of healthcare is connected, integrated, and secure,” says Rose. “Whether putting tablets in the hands of patients, or improving health outcomes in the field, or tracking patient follow-through on post-operative instructions, IoT meets the increasing demand for connectivity.”To find out how to leverage IoT technology to power healthcare connectivity, join ReadWrite and KORE for a free webinar.During this free webinar, experts in the field of health IoT will discuss:The benefits of IoT in healthcareExample use cases demonstrating this innovationHow to implement connected solutions to power innovationHow data flow between devices, to the cloud, and to enterprise systems can be achievedSign up for this 60-minute webinar today and gain valuable insights into building an effective IoT strategy within healthcare:Our panelists:Tom Rose, Director of Business Development, IoT Solutions, KOREMarie Finnegan, Principal Portfolio Marketing Specialist, AllscriptsRachael Brownell, Webinar Manager, ReadWrite Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Tags:#HIPAA#Internet of Things#IoT#KORE#webianr Trevor Curwin Related Posts The U.S. Census projects that between 2012 and 2050 the aging population will almost double. Baby boomers account for the majority of this growth and present a unique challenge to healthcare providers. Unlike their predecessors, Boomers want to “age in place” and expect to manage acute and chronic illness, accessing their healthcare providers virtually as well as via traditional in-person appointments.By 2050, the population age 65 and older is projected to be 84 million, two times greater than 2012 estimates, says the U.S. CensusIt’s not just Boomers who expect to address illness from the comfort of their living rooms. Increasingly, consumer expectations of 24/7 access to care necessitate technological advances in healthcare. And monitoring and diagnostics technology are more than up to the challenge.Healthcare regulations are changing to accommodate treatment outside of the four walls of the hospital and clinic. With access to the right technology, data, and expertise, field service workers can provide care at a lower cost than their on-site colleagues.

Notebook: Oklahoma State-Baylor

first_imgIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! I posted my 10 thoughts here but have a whole lot of notebook to empty. Let’s get right to it.• Baylor won the toss and took the ball. I thought that played right into Oklahoma State’s hands. Injured freshman. On the road. Best defense of Mike Gundy’s tenure (maybe). I thought wrong, clearly.• The commercials after Baylor’s first TD drive lasted (much) longer than Baylor’s first TD drive.• Some of OSU’s cheerleaders didn’t wear sleeves. Baylor’s players were sipping hot chocolate on the sidelines. Just saying.• I literally wrote down this note: “how is Baylor’s offense so good. I don’t understand it.” Plug and play. Second-string QB, third-string QB, pull a rando 37-year-old out of the stands (either section) and he tosses for three fifty and four. It’s crazy.• Seeds!• One thing I noticed offensively is that our RB protection of Rudolph was pretty poor. He wasn’t exactly Johnny Football reincarnate back there with the bum ankle (leg?) either but the RB protection could have been better. Poor Raymond Taylor was getting steamrolled by Baylor’s first-rounders.• #CrootinI’m on the 2nd row at BPS. Baylor is a better team than OSU. It’s hard to accept but very true.— Adam Lunt (@AdamLunt817) November 22, 2015• Speaking of first rounds. Baylor sure has a lot of talent, don’t they? I mean, like an OU level of talent. Don’t be confused by the colors or the name, that’s a whole different animal we’re dealing with these days. Like it or not.• Real Gus Johnson quote on a Marcell Ateman official review: “Sometimes, I think we’re a little bit too precise.” Him and Joel Klatt were tremendous.• Speaking of Gus being tremendous … THE PRESIDENT!• That first Jalen McCleskey misdirection TD was a work of art. I imagined Mike Yurcich flipping off 60K as McCleskey walked into the end zone. Unfortunately for him, those 60K were all flipping him off as they exited the stadium.• Was that the deepest WR game of the season? KD Cannon, Corey Coleman, James Washington, Marcell Ateman and we’re only two deep on both side. Have mercy. Bring me Iowa in a bowl game!• One thing Baylor does well that’s underrated — they control the rhythm of the game. They bend games to their will. They take defenses and crowds out of it when they’re really humming on offense. 73 rushes for 303 yards is humming on offense.• Was this a good catch? Was this a catch?• Stidham looks a little like Zac. And that arm, sweet heavens it is good. I have no idea which Baylor QB is best. It was a treat to watch him and Rudolph sling it around to the tune of 688 yards (in just six combined quarters). It was also fun watching them gut out games in which they were both injured. Both are ballers. Both are going to be studs in the Big 12 for a long time.[1. I can’t believe Rudolph is two games from being a junior. My goodness.]• [email protected] Here ya go— ?????? ????? (@Brooks_Frost) November 22, 2015• Speaking of Rudolph, get out of here with your hate. J.W. was not working and they rode No. 2 like they should have. He sailed some balls, sure, but he went hard all night. He’s a really, really good QB and I hope he doesn’t get the Landry treatment from OSU fans.• The game ended on the drive at the end of the third when Washington dropped what would have been a TD and Rudolph missed Glidden for what would have been another TD. Either of those would have made it 38-28 headed to the fourth. I could be talked into coming back from 10 down in the fourth. Anything bigger than that was going to be nearly impossible.• The onside kick — meh, I just don’t really care. Either way, you were paddling upstream. I’m fine with it. Would have been find without it.• He was pretty good.Is Stidham getting Wally Pipp’d? This guy is 6’5, 225 pounds & throwing seeds.— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) November 22, 2015• Kevin Peterson was pretty good on Corey Coleman. I realize he had five for 77 and KD Cannon burned the stadium down, but still, Kevin Peterson was pretty good on Corey Coleman.• There were as many points in the first seven minutes of this game as there were in the first 59:57 of Ohio State-Michigan State.• Yup.Good luck finding a better deep-ball passer in college football than Mason Rudolph.— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) November 22, 2015• It’s getting harder and harder for me to justify bringing in Walsh outside the red zone when Rudolph is really flowing. I just don’t see it.• I have to say, after the Rudolph TD to tie it at 14, I didn’t think I was going to make it through the night. I actually wrote, “I’m not sure I can do a Bedlam game with this much on the line.”• Baylor is about as disciplined as you would expect Baylor to be.• OSU got so many breaks again tonight. The not-fumble in the first quarter. The weird Shock Linwood fumble-whistle-just give it to the team in orange call later on. Everything was coming up orange and OSU still couldn’t push through. It all goes back to how ridiculously difficult it is to go 12-0 in a season.Officials basically missed everything on that play, but it WAS a fumble and OSU would have recovered without a whistle.— David Ubben (@davidubben) November 22, 2015• Speaking of, only Iowa and Clemson are undefeated. Haha.• Baylor didn’t punt until 1:44 in the third. Baylor isn’t going to lose a lot of games like that.• The more I watch this play the crazier it gets.• Baylor has three QBs. TCU has two and a half. OSU has two. OU has two. Texas somehow has none.• Mike Gundy looks extraordinarily tan for it being mid-November, no?• This is sort of true.Welcome to Boone Pickens Stadium where Heisman caliber QBs play like a 3rd stringer and 3rd string QBs play like Heismans.— Jordan Woodruff (@JWTriplePlay) November 22, 2015• I wrote this at halftime and it turned out prescient: I’m not even sure if it matters if Stidham plays because they can just run us out of the building (literally). I also wrote: If we pull this off against the best offense in the country, this team is made of magic.• Iowa still sucks. The Big 12 is really good. Had to get that off my chest.• This is hilarious.Best thing ever. @BUFootball @BaylorProud #sicem— Lauren Lara (@lonny0907) November 22, 2015• It felt like Baylor was playing with nothing to lose and Oklahoma State wasn’t playing with nothing to lose, didn’t it?• It also felt like Yurcich hit the back of the playbook early in the third quarter. After that: hands in air, go deep, pray for flags.• Retrospectively, OSU needed a pick six (or a couple) to win that game. Strange to think about.• I laughed.Baylor DT Andrew Billings squatted 805 as a senior in high school. Assume he doesn’t throw QBs into the stands out of mercy alone.— BUM CHILLUPS (@edsbs) November 22, 2015• Joel Klatt on Emmanuel Ogbah: “For a guy sitting on a pile of money … ” — it doesn’t even matter what he said after that.• Mason Rudolph is 12-0 against teams not named Baylor, 0-2 against Baylor.• How many different ways do you think Mike Yurcich has had his name pronounced in his life? Over/under 99.5?• Is there anybody in college football who bounces up more quickly after bigger hits than Jalen McCleskey? Kendall Hunter thinks Jalen McCleskey bounces up quickly. I would have been on the ground until Bedlam after this one.• OSU’s defense held Baylor’s offense to 45 points on 14 possessions or 3.21. That’s pretty good. That’s almost a full point less than Baylor was averaging coming into the game.• Chafin on Lampkin to seal the deal was ugly. Like an 18-wheeler against a Kia.• By the way, OSU is 10-1. Everybody was tweeting at me all night like we’re 5-6. Bedlam to tie the best record in school history and (potentially) for the Big 12 title.• What a photo.Game time! @pistolsguy #gopokes #stillwaterstrong #okstate— David Jennings (@iambigfish94) November 22, 2015last_img read more
