A new group of volunteers left Chechnya for the combat zone after training at the Russian Special Forces University, Ramzan Kadyrov said, calling the volunteer units ‘the main driving force’ of the military operation in Ukraine .

The “Caucasian Knot” reported that Kadyrov regularly reported on sending groups of volunteers to Ukraine; in particular, he reported it on November 11. Magomed Daudov, the speaker of the Chechen Parliament, informed that more than 20,000 Chechen fighters have visited Ukraine since the start of the military operation, and 9,029 of them are still there.

“Young people from all parts of our vast homeland regularly come here to learn the right skills and then participate in the [military operation]“, wrote Ramzan Kadyrov on his Telegram channel.

In the video, several volunteers reported that they had come to Chechnya from Moscow, the Perm Territory, the Astrakhan region, Irkutsk and Voronezh.

A 52-year-old man introduced himself as a resident of the Kurchaloi district in Chechnya. “All my friends and family are there…I don’t think I’m old enough to sit at home and watch them there; I’m ashamed,” he said in the video.

Recall that on October 28, Sergey Shoigu, the Russian Minister of Defense, announced that the partial mobilization was over. The next day, Askhab Nakaev, deputy commander of the OMON (riot police) “Akhmat-1” company of the Chechen branch of the “Rosgvardiya” (Russian National Guard), appealed to young Chechens to enter in the army.

Variability of microcirculatory measurements in healthy volunteers http://www.maticezasovska.cz/variability-of-microcirculatory-measurements-in-healthy-volunteers/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 22:09:23 +0000 http://www.maticezasovska.cz/variability-of-microcirculatory-measurements-in-healthy-volunteers/ We included healthy non-smoking volunteers aged 18-40.

We included healthy non-smoking volunteers aged 18-40. Exclusion criteria were diabetes mellitus type 1 or 2, nicotine consumption and chronic diseases for which chronic medications are used. In addition, volunteers were excluded in case of mouth bleeding, mouth sores and mouth infections as these reduce the quality of the measurement. We recorded the age, sex, height and weight of the volunteers.

Measurements

Measurements were performed using an SDF camera (CapiScope HVCS, KK Technology, Honiton, UK) equipped with GlycoCheck software (Microvascular Health Solutions Inc., Salt Lake City, UT, USA). Two investigators (SEM and BB), both experienced in performing sublingual measurements with this tool, performed three consecutive measurements for each subject. The order of measurement of the two researchers was randomly determined. Measurements were taken with subjects in the supine position, with the researcher standing behind the headboard. The volunteers were asked to swallow saliva before measuring, after which the camera was manually placed and held still in the sublingual region. To limit the movement of the camera, the researchers could put their wrist on the lower jaw of the volunteers. Care was taken to limit pressure artifacts by ensuring that erythrocytes could be seen moving through blood vessels during measurements. Images were recorded only in the absence of air bubbles, excessive amounts of saliva, excessive vessel loops, and excessive amounts of large venules. All measurements in an individual volunteer were performed within 30 minutes.

GlycoCheck Parameters

The GlycoCheck software records 1 s movies composed of 23 images. The recording is launched automatically when the software deems the images of sufficient quality, which means that the intensity and the focus are sufficient for the calculations and that the camera is sufficiently still. Vessels are automatically detected and measurement points are set at 10 µm intervals. GlycoCheck limits its calculations to vessels between 5 and 25 µm wide. A measurement is finished when 3000 measurement points have been acquired.

Perfused border region

The inner layer of the glycocalyx is penetrable by red blood cells and therefore also called the perfused boundary region (PBR)ten. An intact glycocalyx is thicker and less penetrable for red blood cells, leading to a thinner PBR, compared to a damaged glycocalyx. The PBR is therefore an inverse measure of the thickness of the glycocalyx. GlycoCheck software calculates the PBR from the intensity profile at each measurement pointten. A more gradual increase in the intensity profile means a thicker PBR – indicating a thinner glycocalyx.

Red blood cell fill percentage

Percent red blood cell filling, a measure of microvascular perfusion, is defined as the median percentage of time that red blood cells are present at each measurement pointten.

Density of microvascular vessels

GlycoCheck calculates the density of microvascular vessels from the number of measurement points, as each measurement point represents 10 µm of microvessel lengthten. The cumulative length of the microvessels in µm was therefore equal to the number of measurement points multiplied by 10. Density of the microvascular vessels in µm/mm2 was calculated by dividing the cumulative length of the microvessels by the total area recorded in mm2.

Statistics

Data are presented as median [25–75th percentile] or as mean ± standard deviation (SD) as appropriate. Normality was assessed using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and Shapiro Wilk’s tests for normality. Data analysis was performed with SPSS (version 27; IBM, Armonk, NY, USA). Values ​​of p < 0.05 were considered statistically significant. Volunteers were excluded from the analysis in case of missing measurement.

Intra-observer agreement for single measurements was assessed with intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) using a two-way random model with absolute agreement (ICC(2,1) type according to the Shrout and Fleiss convention14) and reported as ICC (95% confidence interval; CI) for each of the two observers. For the mean of three measurements, ICCs were assessed using a two-way random model with absolute agreement for the mean of multiple measurements (type ICC(2, k); where k = 3). ICCs were found to be poor (< 0,40), passables (0,40–0,60), bons (0,60–0,75) ou excellents (> 0.75) according to the guidelines written by Cicchetti15.

Sample size calculation was performed such that an ICC of 0.6 or more (indicating good reproducibility) is detected with a 95% confidence interval width of at most 0 ,3. Based on the method described by Lew et al., we calculated a sample size of 45 volunteers16.

The average values ​​of the 3 measurements taken by each observer were used for the analysis of the interobserver agreement. Interobserver agreement was assessed using Bland-Altman plots and with the ICCs of a two-way random model with absolute agreement for single measurements (ICC type (2,1)). The paired t test was used to assess whether there was a systematic difference between the two observers.

Ethics

The protocol has been reviewed and approved by our Institutional Review Board (METC: #2017-0122). The volunteers were informed about the study in words and in writing. Written consent was obtained from all participants. The study was carried out in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki.

In a single day in May 2022, a Belfast group and student volunteers collected more than 120,000 discarded cigarette butts from city streets in a bid to reduce toxic waste.

The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition launched its Butts Be Gone campaign in 2019 to tackle cigarette butt littering in Belfast. They have spent the past three years collecting cigarette butts from the streets and installing disposal containers. The group has also recycled around 15,418 cigarette butts since the initiative was launched.

Estimates are based on how full the containers are when emptied. Each can hold up to 600 cigarette butts. The weight of the bags is also used in the estimate.

The surgeon has a vast wealth of knowledge and work experience as he has operated on over 3,000 patients in 25 years, specializing in cleft palates and facial deformities.

“Major reconstructive surgeries were performed,” Rai said.

“There were gunshot wounds and a lot of refugees from many different places.”

Rai has joined a specialist team of doctors, nurses and medical support staff who are helping to rebuild the faces, limbs and lives of patients working in Poland.

“Patients could not be treated adequately in Ukraine,” said Dr. Oleh Antonyshyn, of the Canada-Ukraine Surgical Assistance Program.

“It’s a medical system targeted by Russia with more than 100 hospitals destroyed. The medical system (in Ukraine) is overwhelmed.

The Canada-Ukraine Surgical Assistance Program has a long heritage in this now war-torn country. The two doctors first came to Kyiv in 2014 to help patients.

But when the Russian invasion began, it was deemed too dangerous to bring in the team of Canadian volunteers.

Work then began to find a hospital in Poland near the border where patients could be treated and return home to Ukraine.

“When these patients arrive in Poland, they have become friends, they have become family,” said Julia Krekhovetsky-Malaniy of the Canada Ukraine Foundation.

“That’s why we keep doing the work.”

According to Toni DeLuca, this year’s Ottawa County Salvation Army Red Kettle Annual Kick-Off Breakfast on Wednesday, Nov. 2, was very bittersweet. The nearly 100 volunteers who rang the bell who attended the breakfast were inspired by this year’s challenge to raise $88,400, but they were also saddened to know that they would not be taking on this challenge with the outgoing director of the Port Clinton Service Center, Maureen (Moe) Saponari.

The breakfast, which took place at the Catawba Island Club, served as a transition point when Saponari publicly introduced the center’s new director, Kami Sayre.

DeLuca, a longtime member of the center’s advisory board, said a tearful goodbye to Saponari and welcomed Sayre with open arms as she addressed the breakfast crowd.

“Everyone,” DeLuca said, “has a Moe story.”

DeLuca recalled the first time she met Saponari, “a well-dressed woman in stilettos,” and she spoke of the times Saponari donned tennis shoes as she took dozens of children to summer camp. ‘summer. She told Sayre she had big shoes to fill.

“But you’re up for the challenge,” DeLuca said. “Whether those shoes are stilettos or tennis shoes, God has put you in this place right now. Moe, we will miss you. Kami, we are here for you.

Many people shared a “Moe story,” stories of compassion, fun, and hard work, both publicly and privately that morning. As Saponari and Sayre waited at the edge of the room, listening to words of gratitude and welcome, they were just two friends hanging on, finding a way to pull Saponari’s impact into the future.

“I’m so excited to go for it, but I’m nervous because I have a fancy, hard-to-follow number,” Sayre said. “If Moe ever changes her number, I’ll sue her.”

Saponari, too, was struggling with opposing emotions.

“I’m thrilled for the Salvation Army and the community. Having everyone here to ring the bell and support Kami is wonderful,” Saponari said. “But my heart is racing right now. I didn’t expect this outpouring of love from everyone. Reading it on Facebook is one thing, but hearing it in person is another.

Saponari and Sayre are grateful that the transition is supported by an advisory board made up of dedicated volunteers ready to help.

“This transition wouldn’t work without them,” Sayre said.

Saponari was grateful for the years of support the advisory board had given her, and she was grateful that they were there to help her say goodbye.

“The advisory board is the core of The Salvation Army,” Saponari said. “They are loving, compassionate and respectful people.”

VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK: Cody McElwain shares his musical talents through worship

Posted at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 6, 2022

By Vera Ann Fedell | Vicksburg Post

This week’s Vicksburg Post Office Volunteer of the Week is Cody McElwain, who volunteers as a member of the Holy Trinity Church Flower Guild and Music Ministry. McElwain has lived in Vicksburg since 2010. Currently, he works for Copiah Lincoln Community College as an instructor for the music department and is the color guard director for the Blue Wave Show Band. He and his husband, William Furlong, are members of Holy Trinity Church.

How did you start volunteering for the church? How long have you been a volunteer at the church?

I started attending Holy Trinity Church in 2013. When the music director, Dorthy Brasfield, realized I was a musician, she asked me to play my saxophone and flute in church services. and giving private music lessons at the Holy Trinity Conservatory Church. . A few years later, a family member asked me to join the flower guild.

What is your fondest memory of volunteering at the church?

My favorite part of participating in the Flower Guild is decorating the church for Easter and Christmas. Throughout the year we have teams making flower arrangements for services, but at Christmas and Easter the whole flower guild is at the church. We enjoy lunch and the company of others while decorating the church.

My favorite part of the choir is the Lessons and Carols church service in early December. We sing familiar Christmas carols during the service, and it puts you in a good mood for the Christmas season. Our Lessons and Carols service this year is December 11 at 10:15 a.m.

As a musician, I appreciate the importance our church places on classical music and the fine arts. During the Easter season we have the Lenton Fine Arts series with special guests each week who are artists or musicians. I always appreciate the talents displayed.

What would you say to someone thinking of volunteering?

I volunteer in these ministries at Holy Trinity Church because I enjoy sharing my talents with others. I always love to see how church members are blessed through altar flowers and music ministry. Serving others is the sole purpose of volunteering, and I would recommend people get involved in their community or church. You can’t make a difference or change if you don’t get involved.

What have you learned from volunteering with the church?

I started volunteering with the church because I wanted to help others through the different ministries of the church. I learned how fulfilling it can be to serve others.

If there is a volunteer who should be featured, please submit their name and contact information to Volunteer@vicksburgpost.com.

CASS COUNTY, Mo. – Teens in Cass County are stepping up to help a sometimes overburdened criminal justice system.

“Youth courts,” like the one in Cass County, exist across the country.

Volunteers like Jim Eftink say they can have a huge impact on juvenile offenders.

“Perhaps most important – it has a very strong deterrent factor for the defendants themselves,” Eftink said. “The fact that they have to walk into a courtroom and face a judge who is around the same age as them has a more powerful and profound effect on them.”

Eftink helps train youth court volunteers like Lilly Johnson and Sam Claiborn, who both studied for weeks to pass the youth court version of the bar.

Thursday night’s swearing-in ceremony at the historic Cass County Courthouse makes it official.

“It makes me feel like I played a part in the justice system,” Claiborne said.

Data from the United States Department of Justice shows that in 2019 alone, juvenile court handled more than 700,000 cases. Youth courts help alleviate this enormous burden.

Juvenile court jurors fill a crucial gap that many minors go through. By taking on the most minor cases, he frees tradition and the often overloaded legal system.

Johnson thinks it’s a better option for defendants who might just need a nudge in the right direction.

“Regardless of the circumstances, teenagers understand teenagers because we all go through similar things on different levels and we can provide an unbiased and fair solution to their offences,” she said.

A total of twenty-one youth court volunteers graduated Thursday evening.

KYIV (Reuters) – A group of Ukrainian volunteers have made “trench candles” from tin cans for troops serving on the front line as a war-triggered energy crisis takes its toll on both armed forces and civilians.

Russian forces are increasingly targeting Ukraine’s infrastructure, including power plants and the power grid, causing regular power cuts and disrupting water and heating supplies.

Trench candles consist of empty enamel paint cans and pet food cans filled with corrugated cardboard and paraffin wax – and most importantly, they provide heat as well as light. Candles have been used by troops in previous conflicts, including World War II.

“(The candles) can be used to dry out a trench, cook food, which is very important, boil water and warm people,” said Nino Nazarova, 28, an organizer of the initiative.

When Nazarova got 10,000 cans from a factory in northern Ukraine a few weeks ago, she thought it would take months to turn them all into trench candles, but volunteers completed the task during a Sunday event at a cultural center in Kyiv, singing Ukrainian folk songs. while they were working.

“These cans come with a lid. So you can close them, throw them in boiling water, heat them up and then put them under your coat,” she said.

The initiative has so far delivered more than 3,000 multifunctional candles to Ukrainian trenches in the south and east of the country, Nazarova added. Candles can burn for up to five or six hours.

Polina Sheremet, co-organizer, said the more Russian missiles rained down on Ukraine, the stronger their motivation to help the military became.

“People’s desire to donate and help grows along with the risk of missile strikes and other attacks. This is how human nature works,” she said.

Some children joined their parents in Sunday’s candle-making session, including Hordii who had come with his mother to help.

“At first it was (the war) really scary, but now I’ve gotten used to it a bit,” he said as he handed out strips of cardboard to the volunteers.

Six members of the Bulldog Solar team volunteered for a day to help a good cause on the coast of Yucatán.

The Chelem Community Center, which has a food bank and programs for children and seniors, wanted to save money on its electricity bill in its building under construction.

A client, who lives in both the Chelem and Mérida communities, asked Bulldog for help. This client had Bulldog replace his solar panels, which were still in good condition, and he wanted them to serve the food bank.

Bulldog Solar owner Erich Briehl leads a group of volunteers who installed eight solar panels on the roof of the new Slam Food Bank building. Picture: Contributed

Previously, Santa Clara customers donated an inverter system after Bulldog upgraded their home to a newer microinverter system. So now a 3.6 kW Solís inverter is also part of the community center.

The Bulldog crew worked from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to complete the entire installation.

“As the owner of this business, I am always proud of our team’s willingness to volunteer their time to help those less fortunate in our community,” said Erich Briehl, owner of Bulldog Solar. “It’s one thing to show them the charitable act, but it’s another thing to watch them perform the act and see the look of pride on their face, knowing they can say ‘I gave back to my community, my country.'”

The food bank continues its weekly hot meal program for 1,800 people each week. Through the organization’s Feed a Family program, 87 people are eligible for regular food pantry donations.

Volunteers also lead early childhood classes for children aged 3 to 5 starting in mid-November. A program for the elderly also helps the community. The planned inauguration of the entire center is towards the end of the year.
