Gunman on the loose in Melbourne

Monday, June 18, 2007 

Police in Melbourne, Australia are on the hunt for a gunman who killed a man and injured two others in the city’s central business district this morning.

Officials warned all office workers to remain indoors, and train services to Flinders Street Station were temporarily on hold, as investigations were carried out on the intersection of Flinders Lane and William Street.

Malcom Bates, who witnessed the shootings at around 8:15 a.m., said the gunman grabbed a woman from inside a taxi. “The lady got away and he turned and shot three people basically point blank,” Mr Bates said. “I was right across the road”. He said that the incident took no longer than the “wink of an eye”.

Paramedics struggled to revive the one victim for almost an hour before declaring him dead at the scene. The two injured people have been taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a critical condition.

Police believe the incident began at the Bar Code 24-hour bar in King Street, when a woman attempted to get into a taxi. She was apparently grabbed by the hair by the gunman who then shot her and two men who attempted to come to her aid.

Police have identified the gunman as Christopher Wayne Hudson, aged 29. They believe him to be a member of the Hells Angels bikie gang. Police have described Hudson as about 180 cm tall, with short brown hair and wearing a dark tracksuit top and dark denim jeans.

A building worker on a construction site on the corner of Queen and Flinders Streets has reportedly discovered a handgun. It is understood the gunman may have thrown the weapon into the site as he fled the scene.

Stores drop game “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” after given ‘Adults Only’ rating

Thursday, July 21, 2005 

The Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) changed its content rating of the controversial Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game from “Mature” to “Adults Only” on Wednesday. The ESRB change came after a investigation proved that sexual content in the game could be unlocked by anyone with the Windows version or with a modified console.

Graphic sex scenes in the game can be revealed if a user downloads a patch from the internet of the “Hot Coffee modification” or enters codes into a 3rd party modifier such as the game shark. This opens up a locked mini-game that depicts characters as having sex. The secret code as well as the patch is widely available on the Internet such as gamer sites, MoFunZone.com and Gamespot.

In response to this, Rockstar Games and its parent company Take-Two Interactive stopped making the version of the game with the sexual content and plan to release a “Mature”-rated title in the fall with the “Hot Coffee” content removed.

Game maker Take-Two says the ‘game mod’ is third-party software that violates the end-user license agreement of the company’s intellectual property rights. Citing what the company calls standard industry practice to create content that never makes it into the final version of a game, the sex scenes included in the software, “were never intended to be found.”

After the rating change, stores such as Wal-Mart and Target pulled the game off their shelves under their policies not to sell “Adults Only”-rated games.

This controversy has lead to major debate between execs and politicians whether the video game industry should continue to judge itself or not. Many of the watchdog groups were unaware that content like this is usually “locked away” instead of being deleted.

Hurricane Bill now a Category 4 storm

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 

Following a period of steady intensification, Hurricane Bill is now a Category 4 major hurricane, as defined by the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.

Bill formed on August 12 and became the 2009 season’s first hurricane on August 17. For the past few days, the storm has been moving toward the west-northwest, but that is expected to change later this week as it turns more toward the north. After that, its track is uncertain, though National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasters believe the hurricane will pass between Bermuda and the United States.

As of 11 a.m. AST August 19 (0900 UTC August 19), Hurricane Bill was located within 15 nautical miles of 18.0°N 54.9°W, about 460 mi (740 km) east of the Leeward Islands. Maximum sustained winds were near 115 knots (135 mph, 215 km/h), with stronger gusts. Forecasters estimate the storm’s minimum barometric pressure at 950 millibars.

Bermuda could be under the most significant threat from Bill, and officials there have been monitoring the storm’s progress. Derrick Binns, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Labour, Home Affairs and Housing, reported that “We have been following the storm closely since its inception, and today we reviewed our planning and procedures to ensure all are in sync. While we have not as yet issued hurricane warnings, I think it is important to advise residents to check their emergency kits to be sure supplies are adequate.”

Bill is expected to spare the United States from any significant impact, but forecasters advise that since the storm is still several days away, nothing is certain. Indeed, residents of Long Island, New York are keeping a close eye on the cyclone’s progress.

Forecasters also warn that Bill could target parts of eastern Canada. Residents of Nova Scotia, mindful of the extensive damage from Hurricane Juan several years prior, are beginning to take precautionary measures.

Regardless of its exact track, Bill will likely generate rough surf and dangerous rip tides along the coast of the U.S. and Canada.

Tropical cyclones are known to be unpredictable, so interests in the regions potentially in Bill’s path are urged to track the storm’s progress over coming days and review emergency plans.

Q: What do I do? My garage door keeps getting close to closing then stops and opens back up

Every garage door has what the pro\’s call a \”garage door limit switch.\” What this switch does is change how far the system needs to push to close the door.What can happen is that the shutter can try to close the garage door further than it really needs to and the garage door will actually hit the floor of your garage. At this point, the safety mechanism kicks in. At this point, the garage door goes back to the original starting position.

Q: My garage door isn\’t closing when I try to use the remote control. How do I know if the remote or the garage door receiver is broken?

A: If you\’ve got a problem and can\’t close the garage door normally by trying to close it manually at the wall…then the issue is with the actual garage door opener itself. So, if you are able to close your garage door manually, then mostly likely you\’ve got a problem with the garage door safety sensors. Always check to see if you\’ve got anything that\’s blocking the sensors. You might have some dirt on one of both of the lenses. Just find a cloth and give both of your lenses a good wipe down and that should fix the issue.

Q: My garage door isn\’t responsponding! What do I do? There isn\’t any movement or sound coming from the garage door

A: Before you do anything else, first check the Garage Door Opener and see if it has any lights on. If you don\’t see any lights then try checking your circuit breaker. Now, if you do see lights on the garage door sensors, it could be that the push bottom wire has shorted out. Go and check the cable which is below the switch and see if there\’s any current. If the cable is getting voltage, try this. What you do is try shorting the switch to see if the garage door opens. That should at least open the garage door and start the process of fixing your problem.

Chronic Low Back Pain Treatment

Chronic Low Back Pain Treatment

by

Alexander Krakovsky -

Chronic low back pain was the second most common cause of disability in the US at the end of the 20th century. The precise diagnosis of low back pain is very difficult because lumbar strain, degenerative disk disease, spondiloartrosis, spinal stenosis and degenerative joint disease are often expected explanations for the low back pain. Despite of the complexity of the structures of the low back and the diagnostic ambiguity, the doctor must provide the patient with the treatment options.

The US Congress has declared 2001-2010 the Decade of Pain Control and Research. Despite an increased awareness of the under treatment of pain, the adequate management of pain remains a daunting task. An estimated 1 in 4 Americans suffer from chronic pain, and 1 in 10 Americans take proscription pain medications. The prevalence of common forms of chronic pain is expected to increase as the American population ages. Low back pain is often associated with tension and stiffness in the joints, muscles, and nerves of the lumbosacral area of the spine and it may present with or without leg pain. The pain can be specific or nonspecific. As estimated 70% of people in developed nations experience low back pain and 1 in 20 people hospitalized with each new episode. Risk factors for low back pain include heavy physical labor, frequent bending, twisting, or lifting, and prolonged status postures.

The assessment of pain is critical to proper diagnosis and treatment. The goals of a clinical assessment include achieving a diagnosis of pain, identifying the underlying causes of pain and co-morbid conditions, evaluation psychological factors and functional status, developing a targeted treatment plan, and determining when to refer to a specialist or multidisciplinary pain clinic.

Treatment strategies often focus on medications, although many other options are available that may be just as effective. Patients often have tried over-the-counter medications first, topical agents, the application of ice and/or heat and may seek medical care only when these have failed. Current pain management agents interrupt or modulate the pain signal, reducing the pain information the brain receives.

The goals of the treatment of chronic pain including chronic low back pain are to reduce suffering, improve physical and social functioning, and improve quality of life. The main objective of pain management is to relieve pain so that patients can return to a normal or near-normal level of function. Numerous studies support the use of antidepressants, antiepileptic drugs, and local anesthetics, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), as a first line approach to the treatment of chronic pain. For the patients with mild to moderate pain, the second step involves the addition of opioids to non opioid medications. For the patients with moderate to severe pain, the third step involves the addition of lumbar epidural injections and implantable spinal cord stimulator.

Lumbar epidural injection blocks the pain by delivering the medication (local anesthetics and steroids) to the specific place and therefore reducing inflammation, swelling and irritation of the nerves. Drugs applied epidurally reach their target tissues fast. Epidural blockade is also unique because of special features of the anatomic site of injection and the resultant diverse sites of action of the local anesthetic and steroid solution. The most practical and widely used continuous method of neural blockade is epidural blockade with administration of drug that selectively block pain conduction, while leaving sensation, motor power and sympathetic function essentially unchanged.

Electrical stimulation as a treatment of low back pain achieved the recognition and became very popular in nova days. Low back pain reduction with the use of therapeutic neurostimulation leads to a reduction or even cessation of opioid medications; making the patient feels better and definitely improving the quality of their life. At present time, invasive neurostimulation is regarded as a last resort but is quite likely that better results in the treatment of low back pain would be obtained if it were used earlier. The status of contemporary technology in the field of neurostimulation is more complex today because of computerized remodeling of electrical currency. The therapeutic electrical neurostimulation as a treatment of low back pain is an established, systematic interdisciplinary field of medicine that has an application for the treatment of low back pain.
