apple on tuesday announcement new accessibility features for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and more. The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant said the features will provide “new ways for users with disabilities to browse, connect, and get the most out of Apple products.”

New features leverage advances in hardware, software, and machine learning.

“Apple embeds accessibility into all aspects of its work, and we are committed to designing the best products and services for everyone,” said Sarah Herrlinger, senior director of accessibility policy and initiatives at Apple.

“We are excited to introduce these new features, which combine the innovation and creativity of Apple’s teams to give users more options to use our products in the way that best suits their needs and their lives.”

The announced software features will begin rolling out to users later this year as part of firmware updates, Apple said, but the company has offered a preview in the meantime. Apple’s upcoming accessibility features include:

Door detection

A new navigation feature designed to allow people who are blind or partially sighted to locate and be guided to a door by their iPhone or iPad when they arrive at a new destination.

Door detection uses LiDAR, the device camera, and on-device machine learning to locate a door, determine how far it is, recognize attributes such as whether it is open or closed, and determine how it can be opened (by pushing or turning a button, for example).

Apple Watch Mirroring

The new feature will allow users, especially those with physical and motor disabilities, to control their Apple Watch remotely from their paired iPhone.

Users will also be able to use assistive features such as Voice Control and Switch Control on the iPhone to control their Apple Watch as a replacement for the Apple Watch display. Apple has also expanded hand gesture controls for the Apple Watch by adding new Quick Actions.

Live Captions for iPhone, iPad and Mac

Apple is bringing Live Captions to iPhone, iPad and Mac to make audio easier to follow for users who are deaf or hard of hearing. The feature works entirely on device and supports phone and FaceTime calls, video conferencing apps, social media apps, content delivery platforms, and more.

Additional Features

  • With Buddy Controller, users can ask a caregiver or a friend to help them play a game; Buddy Controller combines two game controllers into one, so multiple controllers can drive input for a single player.

  • With Siri pause timeusers with speech impairments can adjust how long Siri waits before responding to a request.

  • Voice control spelling mode gives users the ability to dictate custom spellings using letter-by-letter input.5

  • Sound recognition can be customized to recognize sounds specific to a person’s environment, such as the alarm, doorbell, or unique devices in their home.

  • the Apple Books The app will feature new themes and introduce customization options such as bolding text and adjusting line, character and word spacing for an even more accessible reading experience.

Apple also announced 20 new languages ​​and locales for its industry-leading screen reader, VoiceOver.

“At Apple, we design accessibility from the ground up and constantly innovate on behalf of our users. The industry-leading features we’re sharing today will give people with disabilities new ways to browse, connect, and more.” mentioned CEO Tim Cook on Monday.

The new accessibility features will likely be part of iOS 16 (and its sister updates for other Apple product lines). Apple is expected to unveil iOS 16 at its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), scheduled for June 6-10.

According to recent speculation, iOS 16 won’t change much in terms of how the operating system looks, but it will bring new Apple apps and more ways to interact with devices. The first public beta of iOS 16 would be available in July, which is later than Apple’s usual schedule for new iOS releases.

Growing vegetables in containers is a great way to utilize space on your patio while enhancing your outdoor living space. Food increases in cost and using containers. Almost anyone can find a way to grow fresh produce for themselves.

Over the years, plant breeders have developed excellent varieties of container vegetables, making it possible to produce a lot of food on very small areas. The key to success in this method is to choose the right strains!

Over the years I’ve tried to explain why it’s wise to make good choices and use these specific varieties, but it can be hard to understand, especially if you’re new to gardening. The easiest way I can think of to explain it is to compare these plants to a goldfish. If you buy a goldfish and put it in a gallon fishbowl, it will only grow to two or three inches long. It’s not that fish aren’t genetically capable of getting bigger; his environment limits his full potential. However, if you put that same goldfish in a large Koi type pond, it will grow quite large. It will reach its full potential and thrive.

The idea is to select a variety of vegetable that is genetically capable of, say, growing 24 to 36 inches in maximum height, and do everything possible to help it reach its full potential rather than selecting a capable variety. from growing up to 6 to 8 feet tall and smothering it. A plant operating at full capacity is healthy and highly productive. A plant that is limited may still be healthy, but it will not produce at full capacity.

Container gardening is so fun because it’s hard to find plants that are bred to be very small but still put on tall vegetables. Just because the plant is small doesn’t mean you want small products. And I’m not talking about volume. I’m always on the lookout for small plants that have the ability to provide full sized vegetables.

If you plan to grow tomatoes in containers, or are a late start, you may consider choosing determinate or “bush” types. Unlike indeterminate varieties, these will remain more compact and manageable. The only downside is that they tend to set all of their fruit all at once rather than producing throughout the season.

If that doesn’t appeal to you, you can successfully grow popular indeterminate varieties such as Early Girl and Celebrity in larger containers, but they will need extra support and a tomato cage. In order to help indeterminates reach their potential, your container size will simply need to increase.

The best containers are made from heavier materials such as ceramic or concrete or may even be galvanized storage tanks. They are better insulated and, depending on their size, can often allow some perennials to survive our Oklahoma winters. Sturdy fabric pots are popular because they are less expensive and allow good drainage. Due to their breathable nature, they promote a good flow of oxygen with the roots of the plant. The cheapest containers are plastic. However, they tend to crack and fly off.

In container gardening, the reality is this: if it contains soil and can accommodate the plant, then it is capable of being used. It’s like anything else; you can be as elaborate and spend as much money as you want on containers, or you can use old milk cartons and battered buckets while growing food yourself!

Some of my favorite container gardening varieties include:

Friends, I understand the struggle. Many want to grow food for themselves, but just have limited space and knowledge or are on a very tight budget. Let me remind you that God honors our efforts when we try to educate ourselves and plan wisely. I believe it even grants extra grace when it comes to gardening because, after all, it was God Himself who planted a garden first. With a little experimentation and careful planning, you too can successfully grow food for yourself in very small spaces.

May he grant you the desire of your heart and fulfill all your plan(Psalm 20:4).

Switching to greener and cleaner energy

Climate change, the actions the UK is taking to tackle it, and the response of the Net Zero Scrutiny Group led by South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay, are at the heart of a new campaign blog.

The blog, Craig Mackinlay Watch, was started by ‘a group of climate-concerned residents’ who say the MP for South Thanet should support the UK’s drive to take action to eradicate the use of fossil fuels in 2050.

In 2019, the UK became the first major economy in the world to adopt a legally binding target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

Some of the measures outlined to achieve this include insulating homes and business premises; installing low-carbon heat pumps and phasing out gas boilers; replacement of petrol and diesel vehicles with zero-emission equivalents (electric vehicles); using ‘clean, green electricity’ rather than carbon-laden gas, with most electricity coming from North Sea wind farms or UK nuclear reactors.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said of the 30-year transition to Net Zero: “Eliminating dirty fossil fuels from the global economy will lead to the creation of vast new global industries, from offshore wind to electric vehicles , including carbon capture and storage”.

The Prime Minister said the plan: “will create and support hundreds of thousands of new, highly skilled, well-paying green jobs”.

The government’s Net Zero review says the policy will have significant co-benefits, such as cleaner air.

He adds: “Improved air quality could deliver £35 billion in economic benefits in the form of reduced damage costs to society, reflecting for example hospital admissions for lower respiratory tract. When these benefits enable a healthier, more productive workforce, they can support long-term growth and productivity improvements.

But the review also admits: “There is significant uncertainty about the precise mix of technologies and their costs.” These costs will also fall on the public through taxes and/or financial outlays for “green” heating equipment, electric vehicles and possible price increases for goods and services due to businesses having to adapt to new technologies. .

The government will issue a call for evidence on fairness and affordability to help rebalance electricity and gas prices and says it will work with industry to seek cost parity between fuel pumps heat and gas boilers by 2030. A number of subsidy programs will also be used.

Net Zero Review Group

However, the Net Zero Scrutiny Group (NZSG), made up of Conservative backbenchers, opposes many of the government’s net zero policies.

The NZSG says it accepts climate science, but net zero policies are ‘unnumbered fairy tales’.

The group has institutional ties to the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), which says “predictions of unacceptable warming caused by more carbon dioxide are wrong.”

The NZSG is led by Chairman Craig Mackinlay and Founder Steve Baker. They say people will be hit with huge costs for some of the measures, such as heat pumps replacing gas boilers and switching to electric vehicles.

MP Craig Mackinaly

In a column for The Critic, Mr Mackinlay wrote: “Air-source heat pumps unfortunately fail to heat homes to the temperatures we are used to, cost more to operate, perform particularly poorly in winter and require large water storage tanks. There is no technology to stylishly replace the gas boiler and I have yet to find a voter who would be willing to pay £20,000 to be cooler and face higher bills.

On electric vehicles, he said: “The use of electric cars, which are already much more expensive than their petrol equivalents and have obvious range and charging limits, are made more expensive if the prices of electricity increases to accommodate large amounts of additional offshore wind power or increased reliance on mainland interconnections providing electricity from coal.

“There are few government plans to supply the millions of charging stations, no thought about the safety or availability of the supply of rare metals to make the batteries and even less about the true CO2 cost of mining the ore, the manufacture of new cars, new batteries or the national upgrade of the electricity grid to be supplied.

The Craig Mackinlay Watch Group

The Craig Mackinlay Watch Group claims that the claims of the Net Zero Scrutiny Group are not supported by scientific evidence.

Inspired by the Steve Baker watch campaign, the group says it is monitoring Mr. Mackinlay’s own blog and various other sources he relies on for comments that contradict climate science, and will report them alongside current scientific opinion from experts.

A spokesperson said: “Climate change is a critical issue and its effects will have a very significant impact on all aspects of life for Craig Mackinlay constituents: everything including their quality of life, standard of living and their food security.

“Mr. Mackinlay is chairman of the climate change doubt group Net Zero Scrutiny Group, a spin-off of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF). The group claims to “highlight and discuss the serious implications of costly and poorly considered climate change policies”, but their views are fringe theories which we believe are not supported by mainstream science and often contain ” unsubstantiated facts which are not confirmed by the evidence.

“Mr. Mackinlay is keen to highlight the costs of action to avoid or mitigate the worst consequences of climate change. However, it does not highlight the costs of not taking effective action or the climate consequences already entrenched in our future.

“Given he is MP for South Thanet, Mr Mackinlay has been strangely silent about the effects rising sea levels will have on his constituents. Expert projections show that the annual flood level from 2030 will cause enough flooding in the Wantsum to cut Thanet off from the ‘mainland’. According to these projections, significant areas of land from Reculver to Sandwich will be under water.

In red: Areas likely to be below the annual flood stage due to sea level rise in 2030 and beyond Source: climatecentral.org

“Craig Mackinlay Watch is a multi-partisan, multi-religious campaign with no other goal than to make sure local people know the truth. All of the peer-reviewed scientific evidence points to climate change being real, happening. is happening now and is potentially catastrophic. We cannot delay action any longer.

“We believe our MP should support the established work of the vast majority of experienced climate scientists rather than using obfuscation to delay the implementation of critically important changes in the way we use and save energy. . The NZSG claims to help the poor by blocking costly ‘net zero’ policies, when in fact increased renewable energy generation and better home insulation policies could have avoided the rising costs of electricity caused by soaring world gas prices and halting funding for the Russian war effort.

Mr Mackinlay said the Net Zero route would cause ‘social calamity for those in Britain least able to pay its cost’.

The government’s climate change advisory committee has said the cost of net zero measures will be £50billion a year in 2050. Mr Mackinlay says the government’s own figures show the cost is more likely to be £50bn a year in 2050. £70 billion a year.

He also says the UK should reconsider the use of shale gas – the process of recovering gas and oil from shale rock by drilling (known as hydraulic fracturing).

He said: “Renewables have a role to play, perhaps in the longer term as technology evolves, but we have a problem here and now.

“We should be much further along in replacing our aging nuclear power plants which are now reaching the end of their useful life. We should have been much further ahead in making sure we use the gift of domestic gas that mother nature has blessed us with rather than relying more and more on expensive and potentially insecure foreign imports that support hostile regimes including geopolitics is now very real on the border of Ukraine.

“Should we ‘fracture’ – I think we most certainly should, as it would create tens of thousands of jobs, bring in billions of pounds in positive tax revenue and most certainly contribute to the perpetual balance of payments deficit from the United Kingdom…

“I have no major objections to renewables and I am positively in favor of leaving a cleaner world than we found – the energy mix is ​​sound, but does our momentum towards Net Zero give us – (a) energy security, (b) affordability, (c) practical solutions that improve lives, (d) are the vulnerable and the lowest paid protected and (e) are there a better way?

“The current strategy fails in measures (a) to (d), which leads to the natural conclusion of (e). Even if renewable energies could be developed and the storage of excess electrical energy feasible at a reasonable cost , none of this can happen overnight.

“Even then, given the risk to the grid, as seen with severe storms in the north of the country, is it reasonable to be 100% dependent on electricity for all our motive power needs, heating and cooking? Gas will be an important part of the mix for many years to come, regardless of the pipe dreams. »

Fracking was halted in the UK in 2019 following pressure from climate groups and residents over fears the process would cause earthquakes.

Crowdfunding

The Craig Mackinlay Watch group is also on facebook –https://www.facebook.com/CraigMackinlayWatch -and launched a crowdfunding campaign on https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/craig-mackinlay-watch to raise funds to raise awareness, print leaflets to inform Thanet residents, set up stalls downtown to distribute leaflets and information, and encourage residents to contact their MP to raise their climate concerns.

MEDIA: Seven Sharp vs. The Project https://threewisemenblog.com/media-seven-sharp-vs-the-project/ Sun, 15 May 2022 05:41:56 +0000 https://threewisemenblog.com/media-seven-sharp-vs-the-project/ Alarmingly, the Fed said on Friday morning that it had acted too late to avoid a hard landing and that 75 points was back on the agenda just as Orr is about to make his decision impacting stocks. 60% of Kiwis resetting their mortgages this year as inflation soars, the stock market slumps, Putin’s war […]]]>

Alarmingly, the Fed said on Friday morning that it had acted too late to avoid a hard landing and that 75 points was back on the agenda just as Orr is about to make his decision impacting stocks. 60% of Kiwis resetting their mortgages this year as inflation soars, the stock market slumps, Putin’s war increasingly points to a tactical nuke on the battlefield while Ukrainian wheat prices rise poised to cause mass starvation as conflict erupts around a planet that is burning fast and in danger of collapse.

So I decided to tune into the strongholds of 7pm news in New Zealand, Seven Sharp and The projectto see how the big and good of the 7 p.m. news navigated among the circled swarms of black swans.

Now I have to tell you everything that I never watch Seven Sharp or The project because I’m a basic reading age, don’t consider ZM entertainment or The Edge and I have an internet connection, but a lot of our population goes online at 7 p.m. to worship the altars of light infotainment and I thought I’d pick the Friday episodes to rewatch so I could see what the masses are thinking.

I wonder what the masses are thinking.

Seven Sharp is in place. We all love Hills and Jeremy. He’s still making faces in private schools and she’s still doling out burns on Twitter, so I look forward to their thoughts on Ukrainian wheat prices and the existential malaise of late-stage capitalism.

I must have been disappointed.

The first story was about how cold winter feels this year.

I am not joking.

TDB recommends NewzEngine.com

There is a question about the future without talking about the future.

The climate crisis and its catastrophic impacts are not mentioned. Fingers are apparently crossed for a good ski season.

Then there is a story about punctuation.

I am not joking.

A full shutdown is now seen as passive aggressive micro-aggression against easily triggered millennials.

Damn, shoot me in the mouth now.

Then there is a discussion of the most used emojis.

I am not joking.

War, Famine, Pestilence and Death, the four horsemen of the Apocalypse roam the geopolitical horizon and Seven Sharp talk about how to use emoticons without coming across as passive-aggressive.

I never prayed for a napalm attack like I did while watching this.

Hills is embarrassed to use uncool emojis.

Women’s rugby is the next story and we all have to love women’s rugby even if we don’t give a damn about men’s rugby.

The poor kids on Stewart Island were all asked if they knew the name of the women’s rugby team and none of them did, which helped you as a viewer appreciate the sound of everything that taxpayers money to send a TVNZ team and the whole PR women’s rugby team. to a school on the farthest island who didn’t know who they were gurgling down as you gasp at the unbelievable cost of a Seven Sharp third story.

How’s the gold-plated budget for this tasteless watery mediocrity?

The following story is about a rescue club that needs salt from the local community to roll up its sleeves and help rebuild it blah blah blah. No mention of it being climate change destroying the coastline and this surf club, oh no, just salt of the earth local community to roll up their sleeves and help rebuild it blah blah blah.

Then there is a cat contest.

Again, I wish Christ I was kidding, but no, there’s a cat completion.

So winter is cold while ignoring the climate crisis, full shutdowns trigger millennials, no one on Stewart Island knew the name of the women’s rugby team that came to visit, the surf club must be rebuilt despite the climate crisis eroding the coast and a competing cat, is the vast horizon of the incurious intellectuals as defended by the state broadcaster?

Shit.

OK, The project now.

How is it more horrible than Seven Sharp?

I recognize Auckland’s 37th funniest comedian Jeremy Corbett, poor Wallace Chapman, Jesse Mulliga and, I have no idea who the other two are.

How many hosts does this show have?

The main story is an inmate who has bright school lights shining in his cabin.

How is there a live audience for this?

Who Christ takes over and says, “You know what, I’d love to watch the most boring, mundane current affairs show in the country, thank you.”

There’s an infomercial from Dancing with the Stars and an interview with some pop stars.

This is The Edge with footage if it was set in Australia, not Melbourne Australia, more Tasmania Australia.

It’s like on The projectthe planet is not burning, there is no suffering, and willful ignorance is a pleasant numbness.

Watching The project it’s like being asphyxiated, a creeping void that you give in to.

It’s as if both shows are relevant for patients in comas, the elderly, Christian families, and people with fetal alcohol syndrome.

I had no idea it was honestly that stupid.

I think I understand why the debate is so childish in this country.

Having more and more independent opinions in a mainstream media environment that mostly echo each other has become more important than ever, so if you value having an independent voice, please donate here.

If you can’t contribute but would like to help, feel free to share our blogs on social media.

The Rabbitohs beat the Warriors 32-30 thanks to a masterclass from Cody Walker, while Shaun Johnson and the Warriors defense were again found wanting, despite an epic comeback.

Cody Walker scored his first game as captain in style with an assist for Taane Milne to cross into the corner and give Souths a 4-0 lead.

Milne had two tries in 14 minutes after earning an assist from full-back Blake Taaffe to make it 8-0.

Walker had his second assist of the afternoon when he produced a brilliant cut pass for Alex Johnston to walk around untouched.

Damien Cook then completed a long range move from Souths with a barn run to the line taking several Warriors with him.

Marcelo Montoya finally got the Warriors on the board with the final play of the first half to score in the corner and make it 26-6 at the break.

The Souths picked up where they left off in the second half with Lachlan Ilias, who was denied an earlier try by doing just enough to score and make it 32-6.

The Warriors gave themselves dim hopes of a comeback with Adam Pompey finishing off a pinpoint kick from Reece Walsh to cut the deficit to 32-12.

Jazz Tevaga dived close to cut the lead to 32-18 and set up a nervous finish for Souths.

Daejarn Asi produced a brilliant solo try to make it an eight-point game with five minutes remaining.

Montoya scored his second to make it a two-point game with just over a minute on the clock as the Warriors headed home.

Johnson attempted a two-point field goal on the last play of the game, but a charge and an accidental offside was enough to send Souths home in a thriller.

Here are the main takeaways from the game.

WALKER SHINES WITH CAPTAIN

Many eyebrows were raised when Cody Walker was named Cameron Murray’s replacement captain, but he repaid Jason Demetriou’s faith in a stunning return to form.

Walker put his frustrated performances of late behind him with three assists and three assists in one of his best games of the season.

Michael Ennis has praised Walker for owning the kicking game and believes his passing game stems from that.

“What a first half that was from Cody Walker,” Ennis said.

“He was absolutely exceptional. He looked great today. I really appreciated Cody’s state of mind today.

“He was happy to kick around the corners and really stepped up and relieved Ilias.”

Benji Marshall thinks the added responsibility suited Walker, who flawlessly underestimated his hand and took the right option on most occasions.

“It was a great start from Cody Walker,” Marshall said.

“There was a lot of talk about Cody not being himself and not playing like him, but I thought the responsibility of being captain really calmed him down.

“I think he was very patient today and direct and took good options.

“His kicking game was outstanding. With Cameron Murray out, someone had to get up and Cody Walker did a great job.

“Cody Walker playing on the front foot is so dangerous.”

JOHNSON DISAPPEARS AGAIN AS WARRIORS DEFENSE CAPITULATES

For the second week in a row, Shaun Johnson failed to impose his authority on the game and lead the Warriors, who were again dismal in defense against Souths, despite a fiery second-half comeback.

The Warriors are desperate to address their early games and sometimes paper-thin defense after Damien Cook, the shortest man on the pitch, took five Warriors with him in the first half.

Michael Ennis blasted the Warriors’ weak defense, especially in the first half.

“A shocking first half from the Warriors,” Ennis said.

“It seems like another one of those Warriors type performances.

“Cook’s essay summed it up. He went through five Warriors defensemen. He was more desperate and hungry and there’s more intensity to the Rabbitohs.

“They just had the Warriors on the rack.”

To their credit, the Warriors fought back in the second half, but it was too little too late and Corey Parker criticized Johnson for not taking control of his team.

“The Warriors defense was diabolical in the first half,” Parker said.

“We saw Johnson’s stats in the first half and he had a point, 11 yards and a missed tackle.

“But all these statistics are irrelevant. He needs his hands on the ball and he has to dictate to his team. He has to put the ball in his hands in the fifth game and kick them into the corners.

“He has to play to his strengths. He didn’t do that. His team needs him.

Johnson has 72 yards on the run but no try involvements and his kicking game was poor as he took the wrong options repeatedly.

His failure to score what could have been a winning try summed up his clumsy display.

MILNE AND PAULO SHINE IN REVAMPED BACKLINE

The Rabbitohs have reaped the benefits of a backline shake-up with Taane Milne shining on the wing and Jaxson Paulo having his best game through the middle.

The Souths missed Dane Gagai’s influence this year, but after cutting and changing their center pairs, they seem to have hit the right combination.

Benji Marshall believes the changes from the baseline have relieved Cody Walker and allowed him to use the right options as Souths’ clumsy attack improved significantly, albeit against a poor Warriors defence.

“They changed their edges,” Marshall said.

“Campbell Graham looked exceptional on the left side. Jaxson Paulo had some really great moments on the right side.

“South Sydney would be very happy with the way they played. When they hold the footy they are such a dangerous team to stop.

Milne had 117 yards rushing, seven tackle saves, two line breaks and two tries, while Paulo had 130 yards rushing, two offloads and a line break assist in both players’ best games of the season.

MATCH OVERVIEW

The Rabbitohs will be without captain Cameron Murray for their massive Magic Round clash against the Warriors.

Murray will undergo minor shoulder surgery, with the club confirming the Origin star will miss up to a month of football.

Jai Arrow will be stranded in his absence, with Jacob Host taking a spot in the back row.

Meanwhile, the Warriors have made a series of changes after last week’s poor performance against an understaffed Sharks.

At one point, Cronulla’s team had just 11 players on the field after Will Kennedy was sent off and Jesse Ramien was sent to the trash.

Wade Egan was ruled out with an elbow injury, bringing on Jazz Tevaga in place of hooker, while Aaron Pene will slot in at the lock.

After being at the club for just four days, former Roosters rake Freddy Lussick will take a place on the bench to make his debut for the New Zealand club.

‘I’m sorry, I haven’t a clue’, a spoof adaptable to government health restructuring

I’m sorry, I don’t have a clue is a famous BBC radio and television show, billed as the antidote to talk shows and launched in 1972. A parody of talk shows, it features two teams of two comedians who are each given “silly things to do” by a facilitator.

The show is still going strong and is now being replicated in the Primary and Community Care Restructure in Aotearoa New Zealand.

This restructuring is part of the government’s wider restructuring of the health system, including the abolition of District Health Boards (DHBs) which are the statutory connection points between central government and design, the local configuration and delivery of health services.

Purposes and Functions of Pae Ora Bill

The Pae Ora (Healthier Futures) Bill has very different purposes and functions for primary and community care compared to the current New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act 2000 which it replaces on 1 July.

The DHBs will be replaced by a new national monolith, Health New Zealand (HNZ), which will have greater legislative leeway to exercise its authority than the DHBs and the Department of Health currently have. The Ministry of Health will continue but in a much smaller role.

The requirement to integrate health services between primary and hospital care is removed and the lead is largely transferred from legislation to Health NZ (and to a lesser extent to the Māori Health Authority).

DHBs work under specific legislative guidelines, in particular to promote the integration of health services from the community to the hospital. There is no equivalent in the bill. The collaboration between the DHBs and kindergartens and schools, for the promotion of health and the prevention of disease, has no equivalent either in the Pae Ora bill.

Health NZ’s laudable goals, but…

While the DHBs have 12 legislative purposes, Health NZ will have three. These can be summarized as follows:

TDB recommends NewzEngine.com
  • design, organize and provide services
  • encourage and maintain participation in health improvement and service planning, and
  • promote health and prevent, reduce and delay health problems, including a collaborative approach to addressing the determinants of health.

These are commendable, but just as important is what’s not there. This includes new supposed hub “localities” that must have a direct relationship with primary care. Currently, DHBs working through primary care organizations have this direct relationship.

The DHBs are statutory bodies with all the importance that this status brings. DHBs are at the heart of the current law. On the other hand, the new localities will not have the same statutory status. Moreover, in the replacement bill, they are not even mentioned in the 17 functions of Health NZ (although HNZ will be required to “develop and implement locality plans”).

There are three fundamental flaws underlying the Labor government’s approach to health restructuring:

  1. Erroneous belief that structural change more than cultural change can lead to health system improvement.
  2. Failure to understand the critical role of statutory connection points (i.e. DHBs) between central government and local health care delivery.
  3. Unhealthy reliance on external commercial consultants as advisors, although much more expertise resides within the health system. This is most pronounced in the government’s transition unit whose director is Stephen McKernan, a senior partner at EY’s business advisory firm.

The net effect is a series of back-to-back failures, the most important of which is the development of ‘localities’ which are meant to be a hub for primary care, largely delivered by GPs.

The new localities

Localities and Locality Planning were proposed by the Health and Disability System Review Committee, chaired by former political operative Heather Simpson. But that was in the context of a smaller number of DHBs continuing and providing local support, including resources and analysis of people’s needs.

Heather Simpson’s review advocated localities supported by DHBs

EY senior partner and director of government transition unit defends localities without DHB support

To get a glimpse of the aspiration of the localities now, you have to go to the explanatory memorandum before, but not part of the bill. It states that:

New Zealand will establish localities to effectively plan and commission primary and community health services and engage with communities at the appropriate level. This will reduce system complexity and enable consistency, a population health focus, and meaningful community and consumer involvement in the planning, delivery, and monitoring of health services.

Localities must have a much lower status in primary care and other community care than DHBs currently have. The localities will be based in geographical areas determined by Health NZ with the “aim of organizing services” in primary and community care. They will be required to have locality plans, but these will be developed by Health NZ rather than the locality.

The plans must define, for at least three consecutive financial years, the “priority achievements and services” of the locality. Although there are consultation obligations, including with local communities, this is done by Health NZ rather than the locality.

The Transition Unit, led by EY Senior Partner Stephen McKernan, released an update last month describing locality as “essentially a place-based approach to improving people’s health, as well as a mechanism for organizing health and social services to meet needs”. identified by whānau, community and mana whenua”.

However, this implicit bottom-up empowerment clashes with the top-down direction of the new legislation in effect through HNZ, which is where the real power resides.

Eighty localities will cover the country, the first nine being Ōtara/Papatoetoe, Hauraki, Eastern Bay of Plenty, Taupō/Tūrangi, Wairoa, Whanganui, Horowhenua, Porirua and West Coast. Full deployment is expected to take two years.

The localities seem to comprise about 30,000 to 50,000 people. This is the population of a number of small DHBs up to at least Whanganui size. These residents will have their current decision-making rights transferred to Health NZ, leaving them relegated to consultation at best.

MidCentral DHB Managing Director Kathryn Cook helped develop DHB-supported localities operating as pre-Simpson Review networks

Interesting is Horowhenua, currently part of MidCentral DHB. Under its soon-to-depart chief executive, Kathryn Cook, MidCentral was proactive in localities for primary and community care long before they became a glimmer in the eyes of the Simpson Review.

In fact, the way Simpson’s review was written suggests that the MidCentral localities were the model for what he recommended.

DHB support will disappear

The MidCentral localities, of which Horowhenua was a part, functioned more like networks than formalized structures. They include, along with the DHB, a range of non-governmental organizations including iwi, community groups and general practitioners.

These localities operate on a relational rather than contractual basis to ensure that participants’ transaction costs are low. This is made possible by the resource support, including personnel, provided by the DHB.

Abolition of DHBs will effectively mean splitting MidCentral in two, between hospital and community healthcare, and changing the accountability relationship of its localities to a more remote and centralized Health NZ.

The West Coast is another DHB split into two, with its community and primary care becoming one locality. But primary care is largely integrated into general medicine on the Coast. Due to recruitment and retention issues on the Coast, its DHB stepped in to employ GPs directly.

Despite ups and downs, this close relationship between general medicine and hospital care has been positive. For starters, he saved primary care on the west coast. This close relationship is reinforced by the rise of specialists in rural hospital medicine with general medical training.

As it stands, this integrated West Coast set will be split in two, with no understanding of how the line between hospital and community will be drawn.

General practitioners will work within the framework of localities. All we can say about them at the moment is that they are going to be set up very late and will probably be like local networks, determined and controlled from afar by Health NZ.

Yet another problem (if there weren’t enough)

But there is another problem. The bill provides that localities will be established and controlled by Health NZ through its regional offices. The intention in April last year was that there would be four, presumably in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.

But about three weeks ago, serious opposition was raised by the Māori Health Authority (supported by HNZ) over the difficulty of carrying out functions effectively locally with numbers as low as four. Eight seems to be a suggested alternate number.

In a very limited context, this opposition has understandable merit. But it was strongly resisted by Stephen McKernan of the Transition Unit (and EY). In a broader context and with the help of Baldrick from Blackadder, this development is discussed in more detail in my previous Second opinion of Otaihanga Publish: A health restructuring transition without a transition plan.

The net effect: I’m sorry, I have no idea

The net effect is that with the new health care system only a month and a half away, those tasked with making sure the system is doing what it’s supposed to do to deliver health care don’t know to whom. they will be responsible and where they will be.

If a member of the public or a GP tried to knock on the door of a locality on or after July 1, they would find nothing on the other side of the door or no door at all. So what does this and other failures mean in this directionless environment that will continue well beyond July?

If the actors in this restructuring don’t have a clue, then other than the parody in action, I’m sorry but neither do I. All I can see is a leadership vacuum creating additional uncertainty for those responsible for delivering health services, as well as control from a much greater distance and knowledge base than today.

Must-Have Foods on an Italy Cruise https://threewisemenblog.com/must-have-foods-on-an-italy-cruise/ Wed, 11 May 2022 18:30:41 +0000 https://threewisemenblog.com/must-have-foods-on-an-italy-cruise/ Going on a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Mediterranean brings historical sites, picturesque streets and arguably the most important thing: food.

Going on a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Mediterranean brings historical sites, picturesque streets and arguably the most important thing: food.

Italy is one of Europe’s most popular cruise destinations, with common ports including Rome, Palermo, Catania, Florence and Naples. Each region and city in Italy has its own culinary history, traditional dishes and famous restaurants. Be sure to disembark your cruise ship hungry when you arrive in Italy as there are endless new foods to discover.

Foods to Try on a Florence Cruise

The region of Tuscany, where Florence is located, is best known for its meat. From paninis to steak, you shouldn’t miss an opportunity to try meat dishes in Florence. And whether you opt for a more sophisticated sit-down meal or end up ordering a take-out sandwich, you won’t be disappointed with the dining options when visiting the city.

Bistecca alla Fiorentina

One of the most popular meat dishes to try in Florence is bistecca alla Fiorentina, which is a T-bone steak from the Chianina cow, a breed of cow from Tuscany.

Bistecca alla Fiorentina is traditionally only cooked for a few minutes on each side to ensure the flavor and texture are correct. The steak is usually served with olive oil and cannellini beans.

You can try this dish all over town, but one of the best restaurants to order this bistecca is in Buca Lapi. Founded in 1880, this traditional restaurant was built inside a barrel-vaulted cellar and serves bistecca alla Fiorentina that can be big enough for two to three people.

Pizza at Gusta Pizza

You’ll know you’ve reached Gusta Pizza when you see a long line of people waiting outside the small pizzeria. Gusta Pizza is one of the most famous pizzerias in Florence and the pizzas are up there.

Gusta Pizza’s menu is simple. With only seven pizzas to choose from, each pizza was crafted to perfection before it ended up in the wood-fired brick oven. Be sure to try the classic Margherita pizza and the “GustaPizza”, which is topped with tomatoes, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, arugula and parmesan cheese.

Sandwiches at All’antico Vinaio

All’antico Vinaio is a famous sandwich shop located in the heart of Florence. All’antico Vinaio’s sandwiches are served on local bread, schiacciata, and topped with cold meats, cheeses, vegetables and homemade creams, including artichoke and truffle cream.

As the store has limited seating, you can take your sandwich out onto the street and enjoy it while watching the day go by in the historic center of Florence. In fact, All’antico Vinaio is so popular with Italians and foreigners that they recently opened a location in New York!

Other dishes to try: Gelato, lampredotto (beef tripe)

Foods to Try on a Sicily Cruise

If your cruise passes through the ports of Palermo, Messina or Catania, consider yourself lucky. Sicily is home to some of Italy’s most diverse and multicultural cuisines. Due to its strategic location as an island between Europe and North Africa, the culture and cuisine of Sicily have been influenced by neighboring countries and regions for centuries.

While all Sicilian cuisine is tasty, there are a few dishes and desserts that stand out above the rest.

granita

One of the most popular desserts in Sicily is granita. Often preferred over ice cream by Sicilians, granita looks a bit like creamy Italian gelato or sorbet, but with a smoother, runnier texture.

Common granita flavors include mandorla (almond), pistachio, limone (lemon), frutti di bosco (berry), and fragola (strawberry). I recommend asking for “granita con panna” for a cup of granita topped with freshly whipped cream.

There’s not much more refreshing than an icy cup of granita when strolling through a Sicilian cruise port on a hot summer day. This is personally, by far, my favorite Italian dessert of all time.

Pasta a la Norma

Eggplant is one of the most used ingredients in Sicilian cuisine, and one of the best dishes to try with eggplant in Sicily is pasta alla Norma. Pasta alla Norma combines fresh pasta with fried eggplant slices, tomato sauce, grated ricotta salata cheese and fresh basil.

Named after Vicenzo Bellini, a native Sicilian who composed the opera Norma, the dish would have been called a true masterpiece worthy of the opera’s namesake. It’s a popular Sicilian dish, so you’ll have no trouble finding it on a menu when cruising Sicily.

Arancini

Not only are arancini a dish you’ll find at Jamie’s Italian and Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen aboard a Royal Caribbean ship, but you can also enjoy authentic arancini while on an Italy cruise. Arancini are stuffed rice balls coated in breadcrumbs and fried. Although not a full meal, they are usually quite large and make a hearty snack to enjoy on your walks in Sicily.

Arancini originated in Sicily and are most easily found in take-out “bars” throughout the region. Popular toppings include meat in tomato sauce (ragù), mozzarella cheese and peas.

Other dishes to try: cannoli, cassata cake, caponata, Sardinian pasta

Foods to Try on a Rome Cruise

Some of Italy’s most popular pasta dishes have their origins in Rome. Whether your cruise begins in Rome or you’re calling in the port of Civitavecchia for the day, be sure to try one of these famous pastas.

Cacio and Pepe

Cacio e Pepe is a pasta dish that originated in Rome and has recently gained popularity. While cacio e pepe can be found in some restaurants in the United States, the best place to taste it is, of course, in Rome.

Cacio e pepe is made by boiling pasta and, after draining it, mixing the remaining starchy water with pecorino cheese and black pepper. The result is semi-creamy, cheesy pasta with a slight hint of spice. It is most often made from long pasta such as spaghetti or tonnarelli.

Amateur

If you fancy a tomato-based sauce, order Amatriciana. Amatriciana is a traditional sauce made with guanciale (pork cheek), pecorino romano and tomato. A simple, classic tomato sauce enhanced with the hearty flavor of pork, it’s likely to be one of your favorite dishes on an Italy cruise.

This sauce is traditionally served with Bucatini pasta, a spaghetti-like pasta that is hollow inside. You may see this dish listed on a menu as Bucatini all’amatriciana.

carbonara

Carbonara is perhaps the most popular pasta dish among Italians. Carbonara sauce is made with eggs, pecorino romano or parmigiana, guanciale and black pepper. It is most often served with spaghetti.

This dish may seem a little strange to foreigners visiting Italy. Pasta with egg and bacon sauce? Don’t hit it until you’ve tried it, though, and there’s no better place to do it than in Rome.

Other dishes to try: Pizza al taglio, maritozzi, supplì

Foods to Try on a Naples Cruise

If your cruise ship docks in Naples, you’ll have the opportunity to explore not just the city of Naples, but the entire Amalfi Coast region. The Amalfi Coast is bursting with fresh flavors. From lemons to seafood to tomatoes, there is no shortage of fresh ingredients.

Neapolitan pizza

Naples, or Napoli, is best known as the birthplace of pizza. Modern pizza is said to have originated in Naples from flatbread dishes in the 18th or early 19th century, although it didn’t gain popularity until the 1940s.

One of the most famous pizzerias in Naples today is Sorbillo. Located in the historic center of Naples, Sorbillo makes traditional Neapolitan pizzas with a thick outer crust and a thin, gooey, saucey, cheesy middle. Classic pizza flavors to try in Naples are pizza marinara or pizza margherita.

Pasta in Sorrento

Many cruise passengers arriving in Naples will choose to skip the city to spend more time on the Amalfi Coast in destinations like Sorrento, Pompeii and Capri.

A classic dish to try in southern Italy is a classic pomodoro sauce made with fresh tomatoes and basil.

Those looking for a taste of fresh vegetables might want to order spaghetti alla nerano. Made with fried zucchini and provolone cheese, this pasta dish is full of light and savory flavor.

Another popular Sorrento pasta dish is gnocchi alla sorrentina. Prepared with potato gnocchi, tomato sauce, parmigiana, basil and fresh mozzarella, gnocchi alla sorrentina is a meal that is sure to fill you up on a busy day in port.

If you want to try seafood, order spaghetti alle vongole. Spaghetti alle vongole is a simple pasta dish said to originate from Campania, the Italian region where Naples is located. The pasta combines spaghetti with freshly caught clams, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and white wine, although it can sometimes include fresh tomatoes and basil.

Other dishes to try: Sfogliatelle, limoncello, mozzarella di bufala, pizza fritta

Chef Brittanny Anderson black lodge aims to be Scott’s Addition’s most upscale dive bar. Few places in Richmond offer diners such a range of flavor combinations, from fine caviar with a well-crafted cocktail to a hot dog roll paired with a Bud Heavy. Since reopening in 2021, Black Lodge has functioned as the friendly neighborhood bar Scott’s Addition badly needed in a context of seemingly endless breweries and barcades.

Anderson, co-owner and chef, describes it as a relaxing spot that sits somewhere between high-end and diving. His third business in town, Black Lodge, changed from a cafe/café to a bar after the owners realized that one cafe wasn’t going to cut it. James Kohler, co-owner and beverage manager, wanted to move to a late-night bar where you could still grab a hot meal, hence the $5 hot dog rolls placed prominently at the front of the bar, available long after the main kitchen closes. .

“I developed the drink menu with a focus on the drinks I wanted to have after I left work,” says Kohler. “That includes price and content. I focused on retooling some classics. We prepare drinks in a way to get them out as quickly as possible with less focus on the bartending aspect. We wanted time to get to know the name and face of the person at the bar.

Their version of a classic Boilermaker, dubbed the Dressed Up Pony, is a perfect example. The concoction features a Miller High Life pony beer with bourbon and ginger added to the bottle. Excess beer comes in a shot glass with your cocktail for $8. All Black Lodge’s food comes from the same kitchen as Brenner Pass next door, which was featured in Bon Appetit as a must-visit restaurant in Richmond, so you know it’s good.

How did Anderson choose the menu for this budding dive bar? “I chose the food I wanted to eat at the bar,” she says. “I wanted to connect the bar food with the ingredients we use at the Brenner Pass.”

This is why you will find on the menu atypical bar dishes such as your choice of three different types of caviar: paddlefish, smoked trout or sturgeon. You can get two shots and caviar for 30 dollars. It’s been a more popular menu item than expected, according to Anderson.

If you are a beginner try one of their hot dogs. These sausages are served with delicious toppings that you might never have considered putting on a bun. For example, the Alpine Dog is topped with fondue and fried onions. The Russian dog is topped with pickled beets, hard-boiled eggs and trout roe. If you’re hungry and not sure what to order, go for the Tower of Power; imagine a seafood tower, but instead of shrimp and fish, it has multiple tiers of hot dogs, wings, slushy patties, and fries.

Not a meat lover? There is always an off-menu vegan sandwich and the option to upgrade to a vegan hot dog. For people looking for simpler dishes, the two owners also talked about their love of melted dough and the newly added fish and chips.

Recently, Black Lodge has supplemented its typical offerings by hosting local pop-ups and chefs. In March, Royal Pig took over the kitchen serving Cambodian food. The dive bar also hosted Manny Eats for a four-course West African dinner paired with wines. “Any chance we get to let others shine in space and show people what they’re doing is good for us,” Anderson says.

Fans should be on the lookout for more special events in the near future. Despite the pop-ups’ popularity, the place’s charm remains its unassuming late-night comfort mixed with a seasoned chef’s knowledge of the finer things. So if you’re looking for a late-night hot dog or coterie of caviars, stop by Black Lodge and meet your local bartender. The industry people are already there. ..

Black Lodge is located at 3200 Rockbridge St. #101 Check the website here for more information. They are open Tuesday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to midnight. On Friday and Saturday they stay open until 2 a.m.

Whenever strawberry season rolls around, I start thinking of ways to use my favorite berry (although it’s not actually a berry). From my Strawberry Jam Pound Cake to my Strawberry Chess Bars, Strawberry Pie, Strawberry Cobbler, Strawberry Cake and Strawberry Sauce, I love to incorporate strawberries into the dessert.

For the past few years, I’ve tried to create a strawberry blondie that combined my favorite soft brown sugar flavored bar cookie with the sweet and tart flavor of strawberries. But the problem was that each attempt produced a blonde with soggy buttocks.

Jeam Out of Town Blog Hub (Outoftownblog.com) – Have you ever wondered how Marian juggles multiple roles in life and still makes time to be a passionate mother and wife? The Shopee Brand Ambassador talks motherhood in time for Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day Sale with Shopee’s Mom Marian Rivera

Marian prioritizes being a mom above all else

Marian wears many hats as a top actress, a successful entrepreneur, and a working wife and mother. Despite this, she says she never gets too busy with her family. She still spends most of her time at home, bonding with her children and tending to household needs. “Alam mo dapat kung kailan ka need mga anak mo, ng asawa mo, [You should know when your family needs you] because in the end, family should always come first. Ultimately, being a mom is Marian’s most important role in life, and her kids are her number one fans. Raising her children to be kind, responsible, and compassionate is the biggest goal she strives for.

Marian recognizes the challenges that come with being a mom, and these have been further amplified during the pandemic. It has been difficult for her children, both at the age of exploration and who want to understand what is happening outside their home.
