16-year-old Palestinian is the fifth to be killed by Israeli forces in West Bank village of Beita since May

A Palestinian teenager succumbed to his wounds on Thursday morning, a day after he was shot in the head by Israeli forces in the northern occupied West Bank village of Beita in the Nablus district.

The teen, identified by Palestinian officials as 16-year-old Ahmed Shamsa, was shot with live ammunition during protests in the village against the establishment of a new Israeli settler outpost on “Jabal Sabih”, or Mount Sabih, on the outskirts of Beita.

Shamsa’s killing comes less than a week after Israeli forces killed another teenager in Beita, 15-year-old Mohammed Hamayel, during protests on Jabal Sabih.

According to locals, Shamsa is the fifth Palestinian to be killed by Israeli forces in Beita since protests on Jabal Sabih began in early May. Shamsa is the ninth Palestinian youth to be killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of the year.

Palestinians in Beita have been staging daily protests on Jabal Sabih, which lies on the southern end of the village, since early May, after a group of Israeli settlers set up caravans on the mountain.

“We have been protesting every single day to send a message to the Israeli settlers and the occupation that we will not let them steal our land without a fight.”

Ibrahim Dawoud

“We have been protesting every single day to send a message to the Israeli settlers and the occupation that we will not let them steal our land without a fight,” Ibrahim Dawoud, a local activist from Beita, told Mondoweiss.

“When we protest, we have nothing to defend ourselves against their guns except our bodies. And the Israeli occupation is killing us, simply because we are defending our land,” Dawoud said.

“They did not deserve to die,” Dawoud said, referring to the five Palestinians killed in Beita over the past month and a half.

“Did they not have hopes and dreams? Did they not deserve to have a future, where they could live in freedom?” he asked.

Since the first settlers arrived on Jabal Sabih, locals in Beita say that more than 60 caravans have been set up on the mountain, while the Israeli government has established water, electricity, and road networks for the settlers.

Photos being circulated on social media allege to show the rapid development of the “Eviatar” outpost over the past month, and the effects it has had on the natural environment on the mountain — which houses vast olive groves belonging to over a dozen families in the village.

A report from Haaretz showed that Israeli soldiers stationed in the area assisted in the construction of the outpost, and were photographed as helping the settlers carry the prefabricated homes onto the mountain.

Unlike Israeli settlements, which are pre-approved and subsidized by the Israeli government, Israeli outposts are “unplanned”, and are also illegal under Israeli law.

Despite this, the Israeli government rarely does anything to stop the construction of such outposts, and often assists in the development (i.e. providing water and electricity networks) and the retroactive legalization of the outposts.

According to Dawoud, the residents of Beita filed a lawsuit in Israeli court against the settlers in the Eviatar outpost, and are still waiting for a decision by the courts. But, he says they don’t have high hopes.

“The courts are all part of the same system of oppression. They work hand in hand with the settlers and the army to continue the oppression of the Palestinian people,” he said, pointing to the ongoing efforts to forcibly evict Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan in Jerusalem.

“The crimes against the Palestinian people are happening every single day, in front of the world, but people are still silent,” he said. “The injustice and oppression is never ending. The world needs to act.”


Jim Turner, a retired Marine colonel, took his life at the Bay Pines VA campus. He was the 5th veteran to do so since 2013

ST. PETERSBURG — On Dec. 10, retired Marine Col. Jim Turner put on his dress uniform and medals and drove to the Bay Pines Department of Veterans Affairs complex. He got out of his truck, sat down on top of his military records and took his own life with a rifle.

Aside from leaving behind grieving family and friends, Turner, 55, of Belleair Bluffs, left behind a suicide note that blasted the VA for what he said was its failure to help him.

"I bet if you look at the 22 suicides a day you will see VA screwed up in 90%," wrote Turner, who was well-known and well-respected in military circles. "I did 20+ years, had PTSD and still had to pay over $1,000 a month health care."

Turner's death marked the fifth time since 2013 that a veteran has taken his life at Bay Pines. There were more suicides there during those five years than at the rest of the VA hospitals in the state combined. There were none at the James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa.

It's unclear how many other veterans killed themselves during that period at VA facilities around the nation. The government's second-largest bureaucracy declined a federal Freedom of Information Act request by the Tampa Bay Times for that information last year. In an email Friday afternoon, VA spokeswoman Susan Carter said the agency only started collecting the information a month after the denial.

From October 2017, to November 2018, there have been 19 suicide deaths at VA facilities around the United States, Carter said. The vast majority of veteran suicides are off campus and 70 percent of those who take their lives hadn't sought treatment from the VA, according to VA statistics.

As for why it keeps happening at Bay Pines, officials there say they don't have an answer.

Long before he became a statistic — one of 20 veterans who die by suicide every day — James Flynn Turner IV was a young man from a wealthy Baltimore family who joined the Marine Corps and reveled in his service to the nation.

"My brother's identity was being a Marine," said Jon Turner.

Jim Turner flew F-18s and then became an infantry officer, taking part in the invasion of Iraq in 2003. He later served in Afghanistan and spent a decade working at U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base.

He left "an enduring legacy of professionalism, commitment and superior leadership which served as a guiding force for all service members whose lives he touched," said Edward Dorman III, a recently retired Army major general who worked with Turner at Central Command for a decade. "That's a life worth emulating."

When Turner retired, he lost his identity and began to struggle, his younger brother said.

Those problems exacerbated some of the mental health issues Turner was experiencing from his time in the Marines, said his ex-wife, and led to the dissolution of their 27-year marriage,

"He came home seemingly fine," said Jennifer Turner. "It was a couple of years later that he just got more aggressive."

It was never anything physical, she said. "He just got agitated very easily. He had nightmares, where he would wake up screaming military stuff."

The problems reached a crescendo as Turner was retiring in 2015, his ex-wife said.

The couple decided to separate. In January 2016, while Jennifer Turner was out of town, Turner grew angry at his son and chased him out of the house with a gun. Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies responded and detained him under the state's Baker Act.

Jennifer Turner believes her ex-husband may have taken his life because he was refused treatment at Bay Pines. Both she and Jon Turner say it was quite possible he became frustrated with having to wait and left without being helped.

The VA did not comment, citing privacy concerns.

Others who lost a loved one to suicide at Bay Pines have different theories on why they chose to end their lives there.

Vietnam War Navy veteran Jerry Reid, 67, may have driven to the VA to take his own life on Feb. 7, 2013, because he lived alone and didn't want to have his body found weeks or months later, said his friend, Bob Marcus.

Joseph Jorden, 57, a medically retired Army Green Beret, likely took his life at Bay Pines on March 17, 2017, not because of poor treatment, but because he felt safe there, said his brother, Mark Jorden.

But Gerhard Reitmann, 66, who served with the Marines in Vietnam and later as a guard for President Richard Nixon at Camp David, "felt like the VA wasn't really taking care of him" when he ended his life at Bay Pines on Aug. 25, 2015, said his brother, Stephan Reitmann.

The mother of Esteban Rosario, 24, who ended his life at Bay Pines on May 8, 2013, could not be reached for comment.

Regardless of why he took his own life, Turner left behind family and friends, many of whom gathered for a memorial service Friday afternoon in Largo, still struggling with the aftermath.

"Both of his heartbroken children are currently in school and they have lost their main means of financial support,'' his sister-in-law, Katie Turner, wrote on a GoFundme site set up to help them "In lieu of flowers, the family has humbly requested donations for the children's continued educational expenses. "

Preoperative Testing Before Noncardiac Surgery: Guidelines and Recommendations

This version of the article contains supplemental content.

Article Sections

Preoperative testing (e.g., chest radiography, electrocardiography, laboratory testing, urinalysis) is often performed before surgical procedures. These investigations can be helpful to stratify risk, direct anesthetic choices, and guide postoperative management, but often are obtained because of protocol rather than medical necessity. The decision to order preoperative tests should be guided by the patient's clinical history, comorbidities, and physical examination findings. Patients with signs or symptoms of active cardiovascular disease should be evaluated with appropriate testing, regardless of their preoperative status. Electrocardiography is recommended for patients undergoing high-risk surgery and those undergoing intermediate-risk surgery who have additional risk factors. Patients undergoing low-risk surgery do not require electrocardiography. Chest radiography is reasonable for patients at risk of postoperative pulmonary complications if the results would change perioperative management. Preoperative urinalysis is recommended for patients undergoing invasive urologic procedures and those undergoing implantation of foreign material. Electrolyte and creatinine testing should be performed in patients with underlying chronic disease and those taking medications that predispose them to electrolyte abnormalities or renal failure. Random glucose testing should be performed in patients at high risk of undiagnosed diabetes mellitus. In patients with diagnosed diabetes, A1C testing is recommended only if the result would change perioperative management. A complete blood count is indicated for patients with diseases that increase the risk of anemia or patients in whom significant perioperative blood loss is anticipated. Coagulation studies are reserved for patients with a history of bleeding or medical conditions that predispose them to bleeding, and for those taking anticoagulants. Patients in their usual state of health who are undergoing cataract surgery do not require preoperative testing.

The goal of preoperative evaluation is to identify and optimize conditions that increase perioperative morbidity and mortality. Historically, testing before noncardiac surgery involved a battery of standard tests applied to all patients (e.g., chest radiography, electrocardiography [ECG], laboratory testing, urinalysis). However, these tests often do not change perioperative management, may lead to follow-up testing with results that are often normal, and can unnecessarily delay surgery, all of which increase the cost of care. An extensive systematic review concluded that there was no evidence to support routine preoperative testing.1

More recent practice guidelines continue to recommend testing in select patients guided by a perioperative risk assessment based on pertinent clinical history and examination findings, although this recommendation is based primarily on expert opinion or low-level evidence.2 – 9 Many of the recommendations include wording such as 𠇌onsider testing if ” or “testing may be reasonable.” Recommendations are not always user-friendly. For example, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence guideline, which may be the most scientifically rigorous of the group, includes 36 tables organized via a flowchart that physicians may reference to make a decision for or against testing.8 Although the guideline is scholarly, its cumbersome nature renders it ineffective in a busy clinical setting.

Primary care physicians are in an ideal position to take an active role in the multidisciplinary, system-based approach to defining preoperative testing standards for their own institutions to provide high-quality, cost-effective health care. This article compares and contrasts key guidelines and the evidence they cite, and makes recommendations for the primary care physician evaluating the preoperative patient. Detailed charts outlining the individual guideline recommendations are available as an online appendix .

SORT: KEY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRACTICE

The decision to perform preoperative testing should be based on the history and physical examination findings, perioperative risk assessment, and clinical judgment.


Daily Comet named Newspaper of the Year in state contest for fifth straight year

The Daily Comet received the Newspaper of the Year award for similar-size newspapers in the latest Louisiana Press Association contest for journalism and advertising.

It is the fifth straight year the Thibodaux newspaper earned the title.

The Daily Comet and The Courier took home 15 first-place prizes and 44 awards overall for writing, photography, design and advertising.

"I'm really happy to see our team's work recognized as some of the best among their peers across Louisiana," said Keith Magill, executive editor of the two newspapers. "That is especially true during such a challenging year for our community and our staff, in which we dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic as well as several hurricanes that struck or threatened."

The Daily Comet competes with 17 other newspapers that have paid circulations of 3,000 to 20,000 subscribers, a division that normally would include The Courier.

To avoid competing against the Comet, which shares the same staff, The Courier elected to submit a limited number of entries in a different division. It is comprised of seven papers with circulations of 20,000 or more, including the state's largest, The Advocate in Baton Rouge and the Times Picayune | The New Orleans Advocate.

The Daily Comet placed first for General Excellence, and The Courier placed third. Both newspapers earned first-place honors for Best Overall Website.

"These awards, especially the Daily Comet's Newspaper of the Year honor, give our readers an assurance that they are receiving reliable, trustworthy and top-quality local news every day in print and online,&rdquo Magill said.

Overall, 44 newspapers, publications and college and university student newspapers submitted 973 entries. Here's a rundown of The Courier and Daily Comet's awards.

The Fifth day of the Chinese New Year is known as the Festival of Po Wu (“Po” means breaking). According to tradition, it is believed that many taboos can be broken on this day thus named Festival of Po Wu (破五). Traditionally, this is the day when trash collected over the past four days can now be disposed of but not sure if this is still practised today.

Businesses traditionally re-open on Po Wu, and many shop owners and business people set off firecrackers to ensure good fortune for the new year. Lion dance performances are also held to usher in good tidings.

The Fifth day is also to welcome the God of Wealth (it is also his birthday) and food offerings are laid out to welcome him. Visits to friends and colleagues are resumed although many prefer to stay at home for fear they might miss the visit from the God of Wealth.

On this Fifth day, people make it a point to eat dumplings (Jiaozhi) as dumplings are shaped like ancient Chinese gold ingots thus eating dumplings is believed to bring wealth and prosperity.

The Fifth day is believed to be the birthday of Ox/Cattle.


By the way, for those of us who are still not tired of Psy and his Gangnam Style, here is a video of his performance in Penang on the second day of Chinese New Year. Enjoy!


Soviet Fleet Shipbuilding Fifth Five-Year Plan (1951-55)

Although Stalin died in 1953, the Fifth Five-Year Plan (1951-55) as a whole reflected his preoccupation with heavy industry and transportation, the more so because no single leader firmly controlled policy after Stalin's death. In many respects, economic performance pleased the leadership during the period. According to government statistics (considered by Western observers to be somewhat inflated), the economy met most growth targets, despite the allocation of resources to rearmament during the Korean War (1950-53). National income increased 71 percent during the plan period.

As in previous plans, heavy industry received a major share of investment funds. During the final years of the Fifth Five-Year Plan, however, party leaders began to express concern about the dearth of consumer goods, housing, and services, as they reassessed traditional priorities. The new prime minister, Georgii M. Malenkov, sponsored a revision of the Fifth Five-Year Plan, reducing expenditures for heavy industry and the military somewhat in order to satisfy consumer demand. The newly appointed first secretary of the party, Khrushchev, launched a program to bring under cultivation extensive tracts of virgin land in southwestern Siberia and the Kazakh Republic to bolster fodder and livestock production.

Stalin's Big Fleet Program

Stalin was very impressed by the large artillery ships, especially high-speed, and at the same time he clearly underestimated the aircraft carriers. During the discussion of the heavy cruiser of Project 82 in March 1950, the Secretary General demanded from designers to increase the speed of the ship to 35 knots, "so that he would panic the light cruisers of the enemy, disperse them and the ruffians. This cruiser must fly like a swallow, be a pirate, a real bandit. " Alas, on the threshold of the nuclear-missile era, the views of the Soviet leader on questions of naval tactics lagged behind their time for one and a half to two decades.

Stalin's Big Fleet Program was driven by the slogan "catch up and overtake" [dognat i peregnat>, a common phrase during Soviet forced industrialization. After the Soviet victory in 1945, however, Stalin resumed his dream of acquiring an ocean-going fleet, but found that the acquisition of giant battleships from abroad was even more troublesome than before the war. Instead of destroyers, Stalin had to settle for Heavy (Battle) Cruisers, which became the focus of his naval dream in the last three years of his life. The Stalingrad battlecruiser, however, was never completed. When Stalin died this class of cruisers died with him. On April 18, 1953, a month after Stalin's death, the construction of the ships was stopped because of their high cost and the complete obscurity of tactical application.


Does this new calculation system hurt anyone in particular?

It likely will come as no surprise to you that the answer is, "Yes -- highly drafted running backs." Giants running back Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 draft, will earn a 2022 salary of $7.217 million on his fifth-year option. That is less than the yearly average of his original four-year rookie contract (which averaged $7.8 million per year) and nearly $5 million less than his fifth-year option would have been if the old system had it still been in place. It was a no-brainer for the Giants to pick up Barkley's option at that number. They didn't even have to give him a raise.

Of course, you could make the hypothetical argument that the Giants might not have picked up the Barkley option if it had been $12.02 million, as it would have been under the old system. Barkley is coming back from a major injury and has missed 17 of a possible 32 games over the past two years. It's a lot easier to bet $7.217 million on him than it would have been to bet $12.02 million on him -- especially now that the options are fully guaranteed.

Still, Barkley stands out as somewhat uniquely fleeced by this new setup. Jason Fitzgerald at OverTheCap.com found that Barkley was the only 2018 first-rounder whose fifth-year option salary was less than his fourth-year cap number, that all others increased by at least 32% and that the average increase was more than 128%.
