Orange County Fire and Rescue launches lifesaving apps

Please enter your email address herecenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!  Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and Orange County Fire Rescue (OCFR) partnered with the University of Central Florida (UCF) to launch two lifesaving apps – PulsePoint Respond and PulsePoint AED.The apps support first-responding agencies like OCFR by encouraging CPR-trained citizens to respond to sudden cardiac arrest incidents as emergency crews are dispatched. The partnership to launch the technology at UCF was a natural fit. In 2015, the UCF community was devastated by the loss of Michael Namey, a student who collapsed on campus and later died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest.“I am proud to stand with Orange County Fire Rescue to launch the PulsePoint apps,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, who is also CPR certified. “When help is needed, our superhero first responders arrive as quickly as possible, but we know that when minutes matter, finding help just steps away can be the difference between life and death. This extraordinary technology helps make it possible for a CPR-trained citizen to also be a hero.”PulsePoint Respond notifies users through their mobile device that someone nearby is in need of CPR. The application also directs them to the closest publicly accessible automated external defibrillator (AED), all while emergency crews are responding to the scene. The notification can only be sent by a participating 911 system, which has also dispatched emergency personnel. Notifications are only sent when an individual is in cardiac arrest in a public area.PulsePoint AED enables users to upload a photo and mapped location of an AED, which is then available to all users during an emergency. An AED is a device that checks an individual’s heart rhythm when experiencing cardiac arrest and then delivers a potentially life-saving electric shock to restore the individual’s normal heart rhythm, Today’s AEDs are very easy to use, with many designed to provide clear verbal step-by-step instructions to the user.Both applications are available to download for free on mobile devices.“UCF has worked diligently to provide CPR training to our students, faculty members, and staff members. Since the tragic death of student Michael Namey in 2015 following a cardiac incident inside a classroom, we’ve also increased the number and visibility of defibrillators on campus,” said UCF President John C. Hitt. “As we embark on this partnership, we do so with the safety and well-being of our entire campus community in mind. Of the 500 defibrillators included in PulsePoint’s location feature, I am proud to note that 200 are on this campus.”The apps are the first line of hope for individuals experiencing cardiac arrest. Now, users who are within walking distance of the individual in cardiac arrest can be alerted and respond within seconds as emergency crews navigate to the scene.“First responders are trained to rush to the aid of those in need in our communities,” said Orange County Fire Chief Otto Drozd III. “However, 57 percent of U.S. adults say they have had CPR training, and most would be willing to use CPR or an AED to help save a stranger’s life. With PulsePoint, we can engage those who are willing to help and increase the survivability of cardiac arrest incidents in Orange County.”Pulse Point Response and Pulse Point AED were funded through Orange County’s Office of the Medical Director.For more information about PulsePoint visit www.pulsepoint.org.

Universal faces lawsuit over English-only signs after man dies

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Jose Calderon Arana had a fatal heart attack after riding Universal Orlando’s “Skull Island: Reign of Kong” about two years ago. His family recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the resort, claiming that the theme park was negligent with the ride’s lack of warning signs in languages other than English.The ride in the midst of this conflict had been open for about six months before Calderon Arana’s death. It is based on the King Kong franchise and recreates a truck expedition as seen in recent iterations of the King Kong movies. The ride uses animatronics and 3D screens in order to do so.Due to the intense nature of the ride, there was a sign in English warning of what happens during the expedition.“Warning! This ride is an expedition through the rough terrain of King Kong’s natural habitat. The movement of the truck is dynamic with sudden accelerations, dramatic tilting and jarring actions,” read the sign at the ride’s entrance.It advises that those with abnormal blood pressure, heart conditions, back and neck conditions, and expectant mothers shouldn’t go on the ride. Each of those cautionary situations has a drawing next to it.It’s already well-known that proper signage is important in a variety of circumstances, from safety to advertising. In fact, 35% of people only discover a business because of its sign.Since Calderon Arana had prior heart problems, his family’s lawsuit alleges that the right sign would have prevented the 38-year-old’s death.According to Lou Pendas, the family’s personal injury attorney, it is not unreasonable to expect the popular theme park to have warning signs in English, Spanish, and French. Pendas says that this inclusion of languages would allow many more visitors to make an informed decision about going on the ride.“Universal was aware of the great number of tourists on their premises who do not speak English,” the lawsuit reads.There is no exact data on the number of international travelers who come to Universal Orlando Resort. However, it is estimated that out of Orlando’s 72 million visitors in 2017, 6.1 million visited from outside of the United States. Approximately 900,000 visitors came from just three Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America: Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia.News outlets have reached out to the theme park for comment, but Universal spokesman Tom Schroder only responded with an email saying that they do not comment on pending litigation. However, we know that about 96% of personal injury cases are settled pretrial. If this suit follows the trend of other theme park cases, it will reach a conclusion before it goes to a public trial.According to a 2016 Bloomberg report, theme park cases such as this often reach a settlement quietly. Jury verdicts have reached settlements as high as $2 million to avoid a drawn-out trial in some cases.

Please enter your email address here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply I’m sorry for the family but a sign,is posted and pictures clearly state the dangers. A person with a heart problem needs to use common sense and stay off most theme park rides. Does the country he comes from post,signs everywhere in English? I have forgotten the name, but there is an entire communications protocol designed for exactly this situation. The signage is designed to be independent of language. The little geen man on the crosswalk signs, the red circle with diagonal line, the symbols on bathrooms all negate the need for ANY language, and as Alice pointd out, a bit of common sense also helps! I also am sorry.for the loss suffered by the family but I do not think the park was responsible. Did no one in that poor man’s family speak english?

IG and Harlequins Live Every Dream Competition Winners Video recap

first_imgTuesday Jun 2, 2015 IG and Harlequins Live Every Dream Competition Winners Video recap In November IG, the global leader in online trading and Harlequins’ Principal Partner, ran a competition called Live Every Dream. It gave one lucky entrant the chance to take their rugby team on the tour of a lifetime to visit and play Melbourne Harlequins down under. There were hundreds of high calibre entries, all with their own unique stories and takes on why they should be selected. After a rigorous selection process Harlequins’ Director of Rugby Conor O’Shea and former Harlequins captain Will Skinner selected Paul Gilbert from veterans side Chipstead Executive Occasionals (CEOs) as the lucky winner.Paul, or ‘The Judge’ as he is known by his teammates, who go by the names of Annie Lennox, The Major, Gibbo, Rolly, Giddy, Samwise, Teigr Cub, Sleazy Rider and Taffy Duck, thought that their rugby playing days were behind them. This turn of events led them to dust off their club blazers and ties and prepare to live the dream one more time.Their preparations were given a boost by a training session at Surrey Sports Park with the Harlequins coaching team. It refreshed memories of the rules, which once in Melbourne didn’t really seem to apply!In March the CEOs tour began, and what a tour it turned out to be. An action packed itinerary included a stadium tour and meet and greet with the Melbourne Rebels, the Cricket World Cup Quarter Finals at the MCG, a vineyard tour, beach rugby and of course the long-awaited clash with Melbourne Harlequins.The two sides battled to a spirited 5-5 all draw, with the following match report compiled by Melbourne Harlequins’ Club Secretary:“Decided by an arm wrestle, Chipstead kicked off to the roar of a strong local and visitor friendly contingent.  Although going downhill from the kick-off, and in temperatures hovering around 26C, Chipstead stepped through a referee enabled gate to sprint (surprising us all) to make the first score. The referee reported at half time that he was challenged by the visitors interpretation of “touch” (or as practised by Chipstead: “shoulder”), offside and deliberate knock downs, so team warnings were issued. With the scores remaining tight throughout the game, the tension built; but to the great relief of the home crowd fortunes changed, with the referee awarding Quins a well-deserved penalty try at the death. Perhaps not surprisingly after three 15 minute sessions with the score at 5-5, the players voted in favour of the bar for refreshments rather than play it out.With Kangaroo steak on the menu and a bit of Australian red wine to wash it down, Chipstead soon swung into the post-game activities aided by their tour Judge who kept them under control.”The team returned home weary, with many tales to tell but little time for rest, as they were asked to attend BT Sport’s Rugby Tonight show for the first viewing of their tour video.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Harlequins Related Articles 67 WEEKS AGO Harlequins snatch controversial victory over… 266 WEEKS AGO Harlequins confirm departing players following… 310 WEEKS AGO Harlequins 2015/16 Aviva Premiership fixtures… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Save this picture!Similar to a typical Amsterdam canal house the ground floor is raised increasing privacy from the street. The raised ground floor allows clear views to the canal at the rear and accommodates the basement below. This visual connection to the canal is maintained at all times – through the open stairs to the upper level and the absence of any doors dividing the ground floor area. The smaller living area of the ground floor steps down to the kitchen/dining area opening both horizontally and vertically in scale. The lower space opens to the outside terrace continuing the procession to the garden and canal.Save this picture!The childrens lower level (complete with kitchenette and bathroom) is accessed from the street via external stairs and becomes an independent zone from the main house. The dividing wall between the bedrooms is nonload bearing and in the eventuality of the children leaving the family home the basement could be used and rented as a separate studio apartment. Save this picture!In the upper level the parents functions of study, bathing and sleeping are ordered from street to canal side. From the bathroom views across the canal are possible, and the bedroom and bathroom unite as one space with a continous floor surface. The house is transparent from the street to the canal with the main front and back facades of full height glazing. All walls perpendicular to the street are solid timber clad surfaces. A clear demarcation of the house‘s internal levels are revealed in the facade with white bands. Horizontally laid western red cedar boards further striate the volume. The entrance facade consists of a large full height glass door and an art piece by Amsterdam artist Yvonne Kroese.

Boat’s House at Millstätter Lake / MHM architects

first_img Projects Austria Architects: MHM Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Boat’s House at Millstätter Lake / MHM architects Houses 2012 Photographs:  Paul Ott photografiertSave this picture!© Paul Ott photografiertRecommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedText description provided by the architects. The boathouse was built as a solitary building at the Seebodner lakeside of the Millstätter lake in Carinthia. The location of the construction is characterized by the intersection line between water and soil, directly at the foot a precipitous slope in which also the remaining buildings of the property complex are situated. Due to their elevated position, those houses have an extensive view at the south and the west façade of the boathouse. Save this picture!© Paul Ott photografiertThis distinctive location reasoned on one hand a complicated technical and constructional challenge, because it needed 10-metres-long drilling posts to reach weight-bearing subsoil to construct the basement. This approach that, due to the nature conservation and water rights notifications, was only achievable by using a base grade, an oil barrier and several other challenging measures. Save this picture!© Paul Ott photografiertOn the other hand, this setup also meant an essential formative element in the development of the building design: the construction body subdivides itself into those parts of the building erected over water and those over ground, the original shoreline can be read off the two different materials in the facades. Moreover the wish for a grown appearing house, which in the course of the years is permanently variable in its appearance, stood in the foreground: thus it seems that the building, alike a reed belt, grows out of the water of the lake. Save this picture!© Paul Ott photografiertThe components established over water manifest themselves completely in wood, while those established over soil are wrapped in a cover of expanded copper.Both selected materials, the untreated Siberian larch as well as the natural copper panels are subjected to a natural weathering process which gives the building an annually changing in its appearance, until the wood has turned completely grey and the expanded metal panels are totally covered with the green patina typical for copper. Save this picture!elevationThe key signature design feature is “hidden” in the wooden façades: on account of an authority ban, which prohibited an outside footbridge for docking on to the boathouse at the west facade (although there has always been footbridge in the past), a system of facade-integrated folding elements was developed. The uniqueness of these folding elements lays in the fact that in contrast to the usually available folding elements, they can form a completely horizontal, passable surface. In the open position these gates make up the by authority eliminated footbridge in the west façade. On the ground floor of the north facade they establish the entrance gateways to the three boat moorings and also in the upper floor a platform over the lake. In addition, the infinitely variable adjustable folding gates also lead to a constantly iridescent overall impression of the building. Save this picture!© Paul Ott photografiertThe spatial subdivision of the building reflects the strictly functional and comfort-related conversion of the space programme: located in the ground floor is, beside the three boat moorings, one for a motor-, one for a rowing and one for a sailing boat, the wellness area. The rooms of this area, sauna and steam bath, as well as the changing room, are assigned to the outside space and to the lake. In contrast the thermally separate upper floor accommodates the rooms for solarium, massage and fitness training, as well as a small tea kitchen and a relaxing area. The space sequence is rounded by a generous terrace on which the cultivated vegetation extends the reed belt of the lake shore. The three levels are connected by an open staircase which establishes the symbolical connection between the blue of the lake and that of the sky. Save this picture!sectionThe attentive observer will recognise, that the design of the edifice and the planting arranging of the outside areas clearly reference to the formative elements of the existing buildings and vegetation, which have developed in a long time, without imitating these or repeating them undifferentiatedly. By doing so, this stylistically modern building concludes the architectural development of the property, which already stretches for several decades, in a contemporary manner.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum / Ateliers Jean NouvelArticlesVideo: Weisman Art MuseumArticles Share CopyAbout this officeMHM ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeebodenHousesAustriaPublished on November 26, 2012Cite: “Boat’s House at Millstätter Lake / MHM architects” 26 Nov 2012.
