(Image: Children’s Hospital Trust)Children at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital will now have specialist ear, nose and throat (ENT) equipment with the help of the Woolworths My School programme.The retailer and hospital celebrated the handover of a R400 000 donation – raised through their 2015 Christmas campaign – to the Children’s Hospital Trust, the fund-raising arm of the hospital in Cape Town.The Trust will use the gift to purchase specialist ENT equipment. It will enable the hospital to save the lives of children with life-threatening ailments and test the hearing of hundreds of other children.Much needed gearA high speed otologic drill is among the first pieces of equipment bought with the funds. This highly specialised piece of surgical equipment will be used on children who suffer from cholesteatoma; a disease of the middle-ear that can lead to death when untreated.A specialist microscope used for examination and diagnosis to prevent hearing loss will also benefit the hospital’s out patients. This will assist in more accurate and effective diagnoses, and improved procedures, which, in turn, will help the hospital maintain its high standards of paediatric care.The Christmas campaignThe My School, My Village and My Planet fundraising programmes is one of the biggest in South Africa. It raises essential funds for schools, charities and environmental organisations by encouraging cardholders to swipe their cards at retail partners. In turn, retailers donate a percentage of the purchase value to the beneficiary of the buyer’s choice.The Woolworths Christmas Giving campaign was supported by international music sensation Pharrell Williams. Woolworths customers donated to the campaign every time they used their linked cards in a store between the 5 November and 25 December 2015.Louise Driver, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Trust, said: “Woolworths and My School are such valued supporters of the Children’s Hospital Trust and the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.“As benefactors of their annual Christmas Campaign, the Trust has have been able to purchase much-needed ENT equipment to perform life-changing operations and interventions on children who suffer from severe ear disease, ensuring that they regain or do not lose their ability to hear. We want to thank them for their generous donation, as well as all the customers who swiped their cards while shopping. Every little swipe has made a huge difference in a child’s life.”Pieter Twine Woolworth’s manager of Loyalty and My School, said: “We are delighted that our customers were part of this successful campaign to give the gift of hearing to South African children in need.“The funds raised for this was in addition to our normal contributions to customers’ beneficiaries. So, it was an easy way for them, at no extra cost, to participate in the essential, but very expensive upgrade of the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital’s ENT equipment. The festive season should always be about giving, and it is such a pleasure to help to improve children’s access to specialist medical care.”
Are you full of performative contradictions? Are you doing what you say one cannot—or should not—do?You say that your salespeople should block off time for their most important tasks, like nurturing their dream clients, prospecting, and following up. You want the members of your team to do the things that make a difference and produce results. Are you blocking time for coaching your sales team, the most important activity and the one that generates the highest return on effort?You tell your sales team to get out from behind their email and get in front of clients, to go where the action is and make a difference. You tell them not to waste time with the browser and their twelve open tabs. However, you dole out this direction from behind your CRM’s dashboard. Staring at the score never helped anyone win a game. How often do you see a coach with his back to the field of play?You want your salespeople to study so they’ll have the business acumen to create value for their prospects and clients, as well as distinguish themselves in a crowded field of “me too” competitors. You want them to read, to educate themselves, to do their homework. Are you better and more widely read than your sales team? Do you have the business acumen to be a peer when you are sitting in front of their clients? Or might you fail the test you ask your team to pass?Your people will follow your lead. They’re more likely to do what you do than what you say, especially when your words and your actions are in conflict. If you want your people to follow you, you have to lead them. That means you have to embody the values you want them to hold, and demonstrate the actions you want them to take.Your people will do as you do, not as you say.
An FIR was registered against two senior medical officers and other doctors in Farukkhabad on Monday after the district adminstration prima facie concluded that 30 children died in a government hospital due to lack of sufficient oxygen supply over the span of a month.The Chief Medical Officer of Farukkhabad, Chief Medical Superintendent of the Ram Manohar Lohia district hospital, and other doctors were booked under Sections 304 (causing death by negligence), 176 and 188 of the Indian Penal Code. The case was registered at the Kotwali police station in Farukkhabad on the complaint of Jainendra Kumar Jain, city magistrate, Farukkhabad.Parents of newborn children who died in the hospital had alleged that the deaths took place due to lack of oxygen supply. Following this, on district magistrate Ravindra Kumar constituted a probe team headed by the CMS and CMO to report within three days on the exact cause of death of 49 new-born children in the month of August. However, the DM was not convinced by the findings of the probe and ordered a separate probe by the city magistrate, sub-divisional magistrate and a tehsildar.The DM said the medical officers neglected the instructions and provided “confusing and incomplete” details of the deaths of children in the hospital. The CMS and CMO could also be sacked. In its probe, the district adminstration found that from July 21 to August 20, 30 children “appeared to have” died in the Sick Newborn Care Unit ward of the hospital due to “perinatal asphyxia.”In his complaint to the police, Mr. Jain said: “Mothers and relatives of the dead newborns told investigators via telephone that doctors did not put the oxygen tube on time and did not provide medicine, which makes it clear that most of the children died due to lack of sufficient oxygen supply.”Mr. Jain further implicated the CMS and CMO for neglecting directions and not providing adequate information into the deaths of children in the SNCU ward over the last six months as instructed by the DM.Taking “a serious view of the incident,” the State government has ordered the transfer of the CMS, CMO and DM, a government spokesperson said. Administrative action could also follow.Barely able to recover from the episode of deaths of children in the BRD hospital in Gorakhpur allegedly due to disruption of oxygen supply, the Yogi Adityanath-led government has not dismissed any possibility yet.Director General Medical Health K.K.Gupta said there could be various reasons for perinatal asphyxia. “Mainly, it could also be due to obstruction of placental blood flow. The exact cause will be clear after a technical probe,” he was quoted as saying in a government statement.A high-level team at the government level will be sent to the hospital for a “factual and technical” scrutiny into the deaths of the children.According to the government spokesperson, 461 women were admitted to the district women hospital between July 20 and August 21. These women gave birth to 468 children. Among these, 19 were still-born. Out of the remaining 449 infants, 66 critical infants were admitted to the new-born care unit out of which 60 infants recovered while six expired.In addition, 145 infants were admitted to the hospital after being referred by other hospitals and nursing homes. Out of 145, 121 regained health. Between July 21 and August 30, 49 new born children died, including 19 still-born.CMS Akhilesh Agarwal denied the allegations saying “propaganda” was being spread that the children died due to negligence or lack of oxygen supply. He asserted that the children died due to natural causes during and post child-birth. “There was no lack of oxygen supply or medicine. Every child was taken care of and served with dedication,” Mr. Agarwal told The Hindu.
Mumbai: The ambitious corridor between Mumbai and Nagpur is set to gain some momentum with the State government announcing the formation of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the ₹45,000 crore project. The Public Works Department (PWD) has named the new company Nagpur Mumbai Super Communication Express Way Limited for the augmentation of the Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg.The SPV will not only help speed up land acquisition but also generate better financing and operational control for contractors who have been leased large chunks of the project work, State government officials said on Tuesday. “The designation of the officials of the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC), which is the nodal agency, has also been altered accordingly,” said PWD Under Secretary, Avinash Dhondge.The SPV’s primary task would be to assist in acquisition of land which is underway in as many as 10 districts. So far, officials informed, 9,800 hectares has been acquired with a ‘consensus and negotiation’ based approach. The 700-kilometre long super communication expressway will be connected to 24 nodes, which will be developed as Smart Cities in future. The expressway, approximately costing ₹45,000 crore, will pass through 10 districts, and influence development in 14 others.The SPV’s announcement comes at a time when the government is under pressure over the death of a farmer from Dhule, who committed suicide over a faulty compensation. Dharma Patil consumed poison after he received ₹4 lakh for his five acres acquired for a thermal power plant. He had claimed a neighbouring farmer got ₹1.89 crore for land not even half the size as his.

Twitter/@asibo_Jim Harbaugh worked very hard to recruit De La Salle High School teammates Devin Asiasi and Boss Tagaloa this winter. Only one of the two blue-chip teammates, Asiasi, wound up signing with the Wolverines, but the two remain extremely close. Asiasi is set to head to UM, while Tagaloa will play at UCLA, and as their football paths diverge, Asiasi posted a very cool note about their friendship on Twitter.pic.twitter.com/CuyWCg2ZNo— Devin Asiasi (@asibo_) June 18, 2016 We’re sure the two would have liked to play together at the next level, but they both found the schools that are right for them as individuals. That is even more important.MORE FROM COLLEGE SPUN:The 10 Most Aggressive Fan Bases In CFBIn Photos: Golfer Paige SpiranacESPN Makes Decision On Dick Vitale
