    Waiting list registrations and liver transplants linked to alcoholic hepatitis have increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to researchers.  In a recent study from the University of Michigan published Tuesday in the journal JAMA Open Network, authors examined national changes in waiting list registration and liver transplants for alcohol-associated liver disease, as well as the association with the pandemic-linked rise in alcohol sales.  AMERICANS DRANK MORE TO RELIEVE STRESS AMID PANDEMIC, ESPECIALLY WOMEN Looking at data obtained from the United Network for Organ Sharing Standard Transplant Analysis and Research file for new waiting list registrations and primary deceased donor liver transplants for U.S. adults between Jan. 1, 2016, and Jan. 31, 2021, the team assessed a total of 51,488 new waiting list registrations and 32,320 deceased donor liver transplants. Pre-COVID-19 waiting list registrants and liver transplant recipients were 50 to 64 years old, with an average age of 58.  The median ages for both new waiting list registrants during COVID-19 and transplant recipients during COVID-19 was also 58. Among the new waiting list registrants, more than 36% were women and...
    It was a great moment for a hero of The Greatest Generation. Bobbie Carson is a longtime Chevrolet Corvette fan who was looking forward to getting his hands on an all-new, mid-engine Stingray but facing a yearlong wait due to the popularity of the model and tight supplies caused by the pandemic. (Kimberly Miller) It’s an issue for everyone trying to buy one these days, but a little bit more of a concern when you're a 95-year-old veteran of World War II like he is. "They shut the plant down because of COVID, and then they had a problem getting chips for the car," he said. Carson recently moved to Georgia from Missouri, where he was active in the local Corvette owners club. Its members knew the issue he was facing and decided to see what they could do. "His circle of friends got together and reached out to us," Ed Morse Chevrolet general manager David Bean told Fox News Autos. "He’s really well liked in the community and we were excited to be a part of such a...
    UCHealth previously added, "This is why it is essential that both the recipient and the living donor be vaccinated and take other precautions prior to undergoing transplant surgery. Surgeries may be postponed until patients take all required precautions in order to give them the best chance at positive outcomes." In its letter to Lutali, the health system said: The transplant team at University of Colorado Hospital has determined that it is necessary to place you inactive on the waiting list. You will be inactivated on the list for non-compliance by not receiving the COVID vaccine. You will have 30 days to begin the vaccination series. If your decision is to refuse COVID vaccination you will be removed from the kidney transplant list. You will continue to accrue waiting time, but you will not receive a kidney offer while listed inactive. Once you complete the COVID vaccination series you will be reactivated on the kidney transplant list pending any other changes in your health condition.Ingraham pointed out that she believes the case is a "classic" example of "discrimination."
    BASIC motoring is a thing of the past, with cars becoming more technologically advanced with every passing year.  Most new models offer sophisticated safety features, clever infotainment systems, and the kinds of autonomous functions that would have felt like science fiction even a decade ago.  1The Ami is a clever machine, but is it too basic for Brits?Credit: Alamy Live News Some cars are capable of fording deep rivers, climbing mountains, or travelling at 200mph.  But not everybody appreciates the size or power of these modern behemoths, nor the price that comes with it. There are loads of motorists out there who just want straightforward, easy, back-to-basics motoring.  And that’s where Citroen’s Ami comes in. It’s the perfect little runabout, for people who don’t need a big, heavy, expensive car. Priced from around £6,000, the Ami is technically a quadricycle, which means it’s not quite as safe nor as capable as a normal car. And with a top speed of just under 30mph you’re unlikely to be going on big road trips.  But if you only ever drive around...
    Kidney transplant recipients and those with kidney failure face a high risk of dying from COVID-19, a new analysis finds. Researchers from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York looked at nearly 325,000 people who had undergone a kidney transplant or were on the waiting list and compared death rates from 2020 to 2019. They found that 16 percent of deaths - or about one in six - among transplant recipients in the U.S. in 2020 were due to COVID-19.  What's more, more than one in 10 deaths of those who were candidates for a kidney transplant died from the virus. Researchers looked at deaths among people who had undergone a kidney transplant or were on the waiting list in 2019 and 2020. Pictured: Medical professionals pronate a 39-year-old unvaccinated COVID-19 patient in the at St Luke's Boise Medical Center in Idaho, August 2021 More than one out of every 10 people, or 11%, who were on a waiting list died due to COVID-19 Nearly one in six people, or 16%, of transplant recipients deaths were linked to...

    When a brand prepares launch a new model it is entrusted to all the saints in heaven. We do not know if this will be the case for sure, but it gives us that those responsible for the creature will be without sleep for more than one night. The reason for so much sleeplessness is logical and normal and I imagine that you will know what it is. If not, we will tell you the same way. It is about your creature being well received by the public and that reservation and order books they bustle with joy. That a model is a sales success it does not depend on the first months of life. We have many examples of vehicles that burst onto the market with great force and, like a balloon, deflated over the months. This is what brands fear the most, but there are other cases that seem to row against the current. One of them is the new one Toyota Land Cruiser, one of the few pure SUVs left for sale.

    A RECORD five million Brits are on the NHS waiting list - with 436,000 seeing treatment delayed for more than a year. The pandemic caused a huge rise in those waiting for appointments for over 12 months - soaring from 3,097 in March last year to 436,127 a year on. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest updates 2Thousands of Brits have waited for more than a year for treatment amid the pandemicCredit: Getty - Contributor This is the highest number of people waiting for any month since August 2007. A total of 4.95 million had NHS hospital treatment delayed by the end of March - the highest number since records began in August 2007.

    DOVER, Del. (CBS) — Delaware is now opening its state COVID-19 vaccine waiting list to residents ages 50 and over. Delaware will host large vaccination events Saturday and Sunday at Dover International Speedway. Appointments are by invitation only. They will be given to people already on a waiting list. 25% of Delawareans have had at least one vaccine dose.
    A toilet resting, dressed in his protective suit. (Photo: WESTEND61 / .) Up to 55,487 people who died during the first year of the pandemic swelled the dependency waiting lists. This is the devastating figure collected in the XXI Opinion of the Observatory of the Unit, a study prepared by the State Association of Directors and Managers of Social Services. It is not the only hard data that emerges from a report that counts 152 deaths per day from said list. The cause of 79.4% of all those who left the dependency waiting lists from March to December was due to their death. A year marked by the pandemic, terrifying, of a lot of pain, suffering and death José Manuel Ramírez, president of the State Association of Directors and Managers of Social Services- Of the total deceased, 21,005 lost their lives waiting for a resolution, but 34,370 of them did not have the opportunity to exercise their rights as dependent persons.

    “Has been a year of setback in the Dependency system, a year marked by the pandemic, terrifying, with a lot of pain, suffering and death. “José Manuel Ramírez was so forceful this Monday. The president of the State Association of Directors and Managers of Social Services spoke these words during the presentation of the XXI Opinion of the Dependency Observatory, prepared by this organization, an opinion that yields “very hard” figures. The report reflects that 55,375 people died in 2020 while on waiting lists of the dependency -21,005 pending resolution and 34,370 without having been able to exercise the rights derived from their condition-, which means 152 deaths per day. This reflects an increase of 78.6% compared to the 31,000 deaths in the same conditions that were registered in 2019. At the cost of this sharp increase in loss of life, those lists have been reduced by 14%, going from 269,854 to 232,243. “This decrease is due more to the reduction in the number of people with rights, surely due to the effects of Covid on dependent people,...
    DOVER, Del. (AP) — The state of Delaware is expanding coronavirus vaccinations to more essential workers. The Delaware State News reported Tuesday that the Division of Public Health will add in the coming weeks front-line workers in food manufacturing, agriculture and grocery stores. The state will also add front-line workers in public transit, postal service, higher education and pharmaceutical manufacturing. DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay said the state is focusing on workers in those industries who are unable to socially distance themselves from fellow workers or members of the public. Workers in the Phase 1B distribution group who are already eligible for the vaccine include first responders, correctional officers, teachers, education staff, child care providers and poultry workers. Delaware has reported that an estimated 104,000 residents in the state are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That's about one-tenth of the state’s population. Roughly 170,000 other people have received their first of the two-dose vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna. And about 5,000 Delawareans have received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Dr. Rattay said DPH will continue to work its way through a...
    Currently, there are 16 patients on this waiting list for a kidney transplant, both for cadaveric donors and for living donors. In both cases, the recipient requires a specific preparation, consisting of clinical, laboratory, compatibility studies, to carry out the transplant. « We monitor patients and even refer them to go to the central laboratory of the Ministry of Health, for compatibility studies (seroteca), in order to expedite when there is a possible cadaveric donor », stated Dr. Norma Arévalos, specialist in the Department of Adult Nephrology at the Hospital de Clínicas. In more weeks the service will carry out another transplant with a living donor, which will improve the quality of life of patients who come from all over the country. Dr. Herminio Ruiz Díaz, Urologist at the school hospital, mentioned that the process for carrying out the transplant implies preparation and above all a decision of the recipient patient, after which they begin the necessary studies for the compatibility and the state of the organs . “Today we talk with patients who will be recipients and in a particular...

    In winter, and due to low temperatures, boots and ankle boots are the benchmark footwear and the rest of the proposals to fit our feet are relegated to the back of the closet until temperatures rise. However, thanks to the innovative commitment of a Spanish company we can shine sneakers throughout the year, since have developed footwear made with merino wool that is able to keep feet warm in winter and cool in summer. This is how Yuccs sports shoes are that, in addition to self-regulating temperature, improving perspiration and betting on slow fashion, advocate for comfort to improve the health problems of many people. In fact, last December the brand conducted a survey of its more than 15,000 customers with foot problems, of which 89% assured that these had been reduced and even disappeared when using Yuccs shoes on a regular basis.

    PLACERVILLE (CBS13) — It’s a new chapter in history as local libraries now lend a hand with the vaccine rollout in El Dorado County. “It’s a relief,” said Thomas Saich. He and his wife, Patt, are moving onto the next chapter in their lives. They’ve become one step closer to writing out life’s current villain, COVID-19. RELATED: Sacramento African-American Teens Forced Off Flight In Mask Dispute “Fear of catching it,” Patt said. “At our age, we didn’t know if we would make it through.” For this couple, it’s one shot down and one more to go. But without a computer, getting a vaccination appointment wasn’t easy. Though it got done thanks to the local library. “Very thankful she called us, otherwise we’d still be waiting,” Thomas said. El Dorado County libraries are assisting in the process by putting seniors over 75, and without internet access, on a list to reach out to when a vaccine appointment may become available. This new way of placing a hold at the library helps solve a mystery for many in the area. “There’s a...
    Virginians who have pre-registered for COVID-19 vaccinations with their local department of health are able to book vaccine appointments with CVS, but those who have yet to register will have to wait until Thursday. Some confusion surrounded the CVS vaccine rollout after the company said it would not take appointments until Thursday, then proceeded to allow people to book appointments Tuesday morning. According to Amy Thibault, a spokesperson for CVS, the booking is only available to those who pre-registered. “The state of Virginia asked us to open our scheduling system early for those who pre-registered for a vaccination through their local department of health,” Thibault told The Center Square. “We have accommodated this request and Virginians who pre-registered can now look for available appointments in our system.” Virginia’s Department of health made this request to prevent the creation of two separate waiting lists as many Virginians had already registered with their department of health. However, a person who registered with a local health department was not automatically given a slot by CVS and they were not guaranteed...
    In the Picones de María food house (Madrid), a young punk fan and trained in haute cuisine shares the stove with a veteran used to preparing humble menus of the day. That combination has more waiting list than some three Michelin star restaurants, an “unexpected” success. The couple formed by the hardened hoteliers Jesús Peinado and María Meño did not imagine it when they inaugurated it in 2018 in the populous neighborhood of Tetuán to give cheap breakfasts and menus of the day, as they had done previously in another place. Neither did Jorge Muñoz, 31, who “disappointed in haute cuisine as a cook and, above all, as a diner “, he says, joined the family restaurant in 2019 because it allowed him to have the afternoons free to prepare to be a guild teacher. The incorporation of Muñoz, trained in the biestrellado Mugaritz (San Sebastián) and in La Tasquita de Enfrente (Madrid), has become a full pandemic in a revulsive that has put Picones de María in the target of all fans of good cuisine, giving it a...
    (CBS4) — Now that the Inauguration Day events are behind us and the peaceful transition of power is complete, we had to take a few minutes to enjoy some of the lighter moments of the day — like the fashion. Obviously, there has been lots of praise for purple hues and classic pearl necklaces, but one man in a parka and mittens may have stolen the internet. (credit: Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images) Former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) attended this historic event in the same Burton snowboarding parka that inspired many “I’m once again asking” memes, and distinctive pair of mittens that were reportedly hand-knit by a Vermont school teacher several years ago. Photos of Sanders’ now-iconic ensemble were quickly tweeted with comical captions, such as: “This could have been an email,” by Ashley K. Smalls; “Bernie dressed like the inauguration is on his to do list today but ain’t his whole day,” Marie Faustin wrote. Others quickly edited Sanders into iconic scenes — too numerous to list here. But we couldn’t resist making a few memes of our own, putting...
    New Jersey's health commissioner urged families not to take residents out of long-term care facilities for the holidays -- and warned that they might not get right back in if they do – as the number of COVID-19 cases statewide continue to spike. Guidelines issued by Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli include a mandatory 14-day quarantine for any long-term care resident, either in their own room or in an observation room, once they return to the facility after a family visit. For that reason, Persichilli urged the facilities to create a “reservation list,” as well as a waiting list, based on the number of residents who can be quarantined at a time. Administrators were also told to tell families that residents who leave without a reservation or while on a waiting list “may not be guaranteed readmittance to the facility at the end of their visit.” “We remain concerned about the number of outbreaks we are seeing in long-term care,” Persichilli said, “so we need to be especially vigilant to protect this population. “Small family gatherings are a significant driver of...
    The UK’s coronavirus lockdown has impacted every area of healthcare, including cancer treatment, paediatrics, and cardiovascular care, resulting in excess deaths and delays to treatment, according to analysis. Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures had already revealed on Monday that there were 25,000 excess deaths at private homes since the beginning of the year — with only nine per cent being as a result of coronavirus. Another piece of analysis predicted excess deaths would rise directly as a result of the government’s “Protect the NHS” message which deterred people from making medical appointments. But it was the audit of several dozens of reports by health professionals, charities, and medical journals by the Daily Mail that revealed in full the staggering effect that the lockdown has had on non-COVID-19 patients. The report noted a Lancet paper stating that during the three months of lockdown, organ transplants fell by two-thirds, resulting in the numbers of people dying on transplant waiting lists to nearly double. Hospital chemotherapy attendance fell by 66 per cent in April, per a University College London study for the British Medical Journal analysed...

    The passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could seal the re-election of President Trump and a Republican majority in both chambers of Congress. But, from a purely political perspective, Richard Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ, believes it is necessary for the vote to happen after the November 3 election. "Having a vacancy on the Supreme Court will significantly increase the vote for Trump, and all races down ballot," says Viguerie. "Voters go to the polls to expect what you will accomplish. They do not go to the polls to thank you for a job well done." Weeks after winning World War II, Winston Churchill was voted out of office because he was talking about his accomplishments, while his opponents talked about the future. Waiting to nominate would put Biden on the defensive to come up with a list of nominees, which he wont want to do because it could cost him the election. "A confirmation process before the election would dominate the national conversation," says Viguerie. "It would divide Senate Republicans, and also get the focus off Bidens list of nominees."...
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Nearly 60,000 poor, disabled and elderly residents are on a waiting list for placement in Florida’s Medicaid managed long-term care program. But the number of people on the list will be drastically reduced in the coming months. The Legislature this year passed a law to ensure that the list only includes the names of residents who are most at risk of nursing-home placement and that people with “low priority” scores will not go on the list. Of the 59,259 people on the list, only about 1,562 are considered in the high-risk category, according to Rebecca Roberts, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Elder Affairs. Meanwhile, the Agency for Health Care Administration on Thursday held a workshop to discuss changes the state will need to make to rules to comply with the new law but did not make a draft proposal available before the meeting. Devona Pickle, the agency’s administrator for managed care policy and contract development who chaired the meeting, said she hopes to have a draft proposal available for public review before the state schedules...

    A talented artist who creates incredible tiny replicas of beloved animals using felt has revealed she's already overwhelmed with a four-month waiting list after becoming popular online. Alyson Gurney, 24, from Washington, DC, felts the wool together in incredibly accurate sculptures while carefully studying photos of the pets - which mostly include dogs but also feature cats, rabbits and even hedgehogs. She says her pet sculptures, which she posts across her social media accounts, have become so popular that she is currently getting overwhelmed with requests and has a four-month wait-list.  The artist said: 'My favourite part of the whole process is receiving pictures of the real pets with their little felted friend. It is such a joy to realise how much people love their pets, sometimes it's the little things in life that bring us the most joy.'  She added:  'Each month I am completely shocked at how fast they sell out! My wait-list is currently four-months-long due to the influx of orders I receive. 'I'm ecstatic to know that my customers trust me in recreating the likeness of their pet, they...

The 10,000-square-foot salon in the Loews Regency New York Hotel plans to bring back 50 of its 150 employees once they are allowed to trim locks again. Julien’s wife and business manager, Suelyn Farel, is leading the charge and laying out their coronavirus-precaution guidelines, including requiring a mask, temperature check, hand-washing and hand-sanitizer application...
