Giving the Gift of Home Services

YourUpdateTV

The last few years have changed the value we put in our homes and how we see our homes as we spend more time there. And fittingly homeowners have taken on a lot of work to make their homes better suited to them. Recently, Angie Hicks, Chief Customer Officer of Home Services at Angi and Co-Founder of Angie’s List, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss giving the gift of home services. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/eFgMPqhKR6k According to Angi’s new State of Home Spending report, the top improvement projects completed in 2022 by American homeowners were: Painted an interior space - 33.6%; Remodeled a bathroom - 28.9%; Installed new flooring - 27.8%; Installed a smart home device - 22.9%; Painted/stained home exterior - 22.9%; Remodeled a kitchen - 21.4%; Installed new landscaping - 20.0%; Added/replaced windows - 18.2%; Repaired a roof - 18.1% In addition to all of that remodeling and improvement work, 38% of US homeowners completed routine home maintenance. These projects include tasks like landscaping, yard work, interior cleaning, gutter cleaning, window washing and more. This holiday season, people will be looking for cost effective gifts and gifting home projects is a great way to stay on budget and show your friends and family how much you care. In fact, from a recent study by Beyond Finance, 4 out of 5 people said inflation has affected their holiday spending plans, with 53% saying they plan on buying fewer or less expensive gifts. Taking on projects, either DIY or by hiring a pro is like self-care for your home and this holiday season is a perfect time to gift that care. With budget on the brain, here are a few great DIY home projects. Lawn care - gift your family or loved ones bi-monthly lawn mowing, repaint a space, plant a garden, tackle some existing projects. You can also hire a pro to come in and complete some work too. A great gift would be to hire a cleaner following the holidays to start the year with a clean home or hire a handyman for a few hours to tackle that honey-do list.

Preparing the next generation of nurses highlighted in PATIENT SAFETY

Patient Safety Authority

The nursing field offers huge career opportunities. But with a critical nursing shortage and new complexities for those entering the profession, how can we ensure the next generation of nurses can handle whatever might come their way? What does it take to successfully transition them from classroom into practice? These are some of the questions addressed in the December issue of PATIENT SAFETY. “We need to prepare our nurses to learn in a new way and adapt how they make decisions, even at the bedside,” says Cedar Crest College senior instructor Eileen Fruchtl, MSN. She explores issues such as simulation technology, testing for decision making, core curricula and the expanding roles of nurses in the article, Onward and Upward: The Future of Nursing Education. “Most people don’t see the complexity of what a nurse does at the bedside, what they have to have in their knowledge base to keep patients safe,” she says. “The core curriculum integrates things that didn’t even exist years ago—like informatics. We see a lot more in politics and advocacy, leadership and management, and communities.” Fruchtl explains that nurses drive the healthcare system through their work in policy making, insurance, education, and in the community. “A lot of students don’t realize the extent of the opportunities they’ll have.” Transitioning students from academia into safe practice is the subject of another article based on a study conducted by faculty at Commonwealth University, Bloomsburg Campus, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee College of Nursing and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Their research revealed new nurses’ challenges including lack of skill dexterity, absence of mentors, and imposter syndrome. Enhancing academic curriculum, cooperative efforts between practice nurses and faculty, and improving nurse residency programs can narrow the academic practice gap, the authors conclude. Other topics in this issue of PATIENT SAFETY include: How a peer support program improves care for all – Jefferson Health’s RISE program is a psychological first-aid, peer-support team for distressed healthcare workers and providers in the immediate wake of a stressful or traumatic workplace event. Jefferson’s program leads, John Olsen and Dr. Scott Cowan, explain the program’s genesis, its positive impact, and how it can be replicated in other institutions. An inside look to healthcare in prison – Erica Benning, Bureau of Healthcare director for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (PA DOC), discusses healthcare delivery for almost 40,000 incarcerated individuals: what can be done in-house, how her team handles inmates with mental illness, their COVID response, and more. PATIENT SAFETY is the peer-reviewed journal of the Patient Safety Authority. A scientific publication, PATIENT SAFETY humanizes patient harm with stories, opinion pieces, and magazine-quality design. It has a readership of more than 45,000 people in 164 countries. About PSA Established under the Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error (MCARE) Act of 2002, the PSA, an independent state agency, collects and analyzes patient safety data to improve safety outcomes and help prevent patient harm. http://patientsafety.pa.gov/ Contact Details Bev Volpe +1 609-230-4696 bev@madisongall.com Company Website http://patientsafety.pa.gov/

Skape.GG and GoBubble Launch Global Partnership to Tackle Online Toxicity within Gaming

GoBubble Media Centre

Online social community for gamers Skape and AI provider GoBubble, have announced a groundbreaking partnership in the world of online safety. The two companies have joined forces to create a unique experience for the +3m users registered in Skape, with the aim of providing a safer online environment for everyone across the platform, one that is free from online hate and bullying. Skape is a social dashboard that connects real gamers and has selected GoBubble’s Emotion AI as their exclusive global digital safety partner for content moderation. Emotion AI is cutting edge sentiment-based content moderation, which has a pedigree in helping Trust and Safety teams. Ole Vidar Hestas, CEO of Rocket Brands (the company behind Skape) said: “This collaboration is a truly transformative step for Esports and the gaming industry. At Skape we care most about making the gaming community safer for everyone and our lifetime commitment is to create positive communities, and to connect, share and build safer digital spaces for users. As a result, we’re proud to have selected GoBubble as our exclusive safety partner through the use of their Emotion AI technology.” GoBubble’s international patent-pending AI provides clients with bespoke multi-language multimedia content moderation, saving valuable time and scale whilst placing mental health and well-being at the core. Research tells us that there are currently an estimated one billion online gamers worldwide and that the audience continues to grow. Unfortunately, the amount of online hate is also increasing, and the gaming world is rife with toxicity including racist, homophobic, transphobic, and sexist content. In a report published earlier this year about the effects of online abuse, statistics show that almost all victims of online abuse surveyed reported some level of harm from the abuse, with 91% indicating that the abuse impacted them in some way. Women reported higher levels of harm with only 3% of women saying the online abuse did not bother them. Statistics from the Anti-Defamation League research also show that marginalised groups suffer the most harassment in online gaming, with 37% responding that they will try to hide their identity as a result. And in a recent study by Preply, it was found that 90% of gamers surveyed have experienced or witnessed emotional abuse or bullying while playing video games, and nearly 7/10 have considered quitting because of what they’ve witnessed. Danielle Platten, CEO and Co-Founder, GoBubble added: “This unique partnership with Skape marks a huge step forward for the gaming industry as we’re seeing the level of hate speech within the sector increasing. Historically abuse has almost been reluctantly accepted as part of the culture, but content and comments can have a negative effect on the mental health and well-being of gamers and streamers, and on the reputation of the publisher or gaming studio. “Together with Skape, we’re determined to reduce the level of online hate within the sector, and to help build safer and more positive and inclusive gaming communities.” The companies are actively working to raise awareness of the issue of online harassment and are providing resources to help those who have been affected by it. This includes providing access to counseling and support services, as well as assistance and advice on how to stay safer online. About GoBubble GoBubble’s next-generation content moderation and detection technology helps organisations around the globe to create safer, healthier, kinder digital communities and protect brand reputation. They care greatly about freedom of speech and helping to give people access to tools that will shield them from toxicity. Their innovative machine learning helps to protect people against racism, misogyny, negative LGBTQ+ content, and threats. Its turnkey solution can be rolled out to clients in minutes.

New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Orders NYC to Drop Foie Gras Sales Ban

Catskill Foie Gras Collective

Hudson Valley duck farmers, organized as the Catskill Foie Gras Collective, announced today that the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets has ruled that NYC’s proposed ban on the sale of foie gras in NYC restaurants and retail stores violates State law. The Department has issued an Order directing that New York City “immediately comply with the provisions of Section 305-a of the Agriculture and Markets Law” and refrain from taking any action “that would restrict [the farmers’] ability to sell their product in the New York City market.” Agriculture and Markets Law § 305-a prohibits municipalities, like New York City, from enacting laws that unreasonably restrict farming operations in certified agricultural districts. The Hudson Valley duck farms are located within certified agricultural districts. The Department issued its Order after investigating the farmers’ complaint that NYC’s sales ban, which is known as Local Law 202, would unreasonably restrict their operations. “After reviewing our complaint, the Department of Agriculture has determined the City’s proposed actions do, in fact, violate New York State Law,” said Marcus Henley, a spokesperson for the Catskill Foie Gras Collective. “We are extremely grateful that the Department has taken this action, as hundreds of Sullivan County farm worker jobs were hanging in the balance.” Local Law 202 would have become effective on November 25, 2022, but in a separate lawsuit, a Manhattan judge issued a preliminary injunction that enjoins the City from enforcing the law pending further proceedings in that suit. Had Local Law 202 gone into effect at that time, the sales ban would have caused millions of dollars in revenue loss to the State, New York City, restaurants, wholesale distributors, retail store owners, and related transportation companies. “On a broader scale, the order stops local municipalities from establishing a dangerous precedent of dictating to us what farmers can grow and what people can eat,” added Henley. “It’s great news for farmers and fine diners everywhere.” Proponents for the sales ban, including animal rights groups, mistakenly claim that ducks are treated inhumanely during the foie gras production process. Hudson Valley Foie Gras and La Belle Farms respond that their ducks are well cared for, are allowed to roam freely, and are processed in a government-inspected facility, strictly adhering to animal welfare and federal regulations. Both farms produce foie gras using a special hand-feeding method, like no other farm in the world, so as not to harm the ducks. “These well-funded groups are reactionary and powerful, often times acting without knowing all the facts,” said Sergio Saravia, President of La Belle Farms. “We welcome politicians and reporters to visit our poultry farms and see, firsthand, the farming practices we have in place.” New York City has thirty days to challenge the Department’s Order by filing a court proceeding in Albany County. “We hope the City will accept the Order given the Department’s authority and expertise enforcing the Agriculture and Markets Law, but we will continue to fight to protect our farms if the City decides to spend even more taxpayer dollars on taking the matter to court in Albany.” For more information about foie gras production visit: https://foiegrasfacts.org. About Catskill Foie Gras Collective: The Catskill Foie Gras Collective is comprised of Hudson Valley Foie Gras and La Belle Farm, the main producers of foie gras to restaurants and retail food stores. The collective serves as a resource for factual information and independent articles about our farming.
