Hamden’s former lawyer, disbarred, accused of making anti-Semitic remarks about a judge, asked her insurer to foot the bill for a mental health assessment to determine if she was suffering from a “condition” that would prevent him from following court orders, his lawyer said on Tuesday.

Nickola Cunha had until Tuesday to provide Middletown Superior Court Judge Thomas Moukawsher with a plan to obtain the appraisal, which his lawyer Norm Pattis said could cost up to $15,000 if carried out by clinicians associated with Yale University.

As of last week, Cunha’s family did not have the money to pay for the Yale evaluation, which Pattis considered the “gold standard” for determining whether a client is competent to participate in their own defense.

On Tuesday, Pattis told Moukawsher in remote court proceedings that his client’s insurer had agreed to pay for the assessment, but there’s a catch – it can’t be ‘classified as a competency assessment’ . Pattis did not explain why the insurer wanted specific language. Instead, he asked the judge for a “short leash” and a court date within a week to confirm the insurance company would pay.

“We’re not 100% sure, but we think we’ve solved the problem,” Pattis said of the question of who will pay for the assessment.


Unlike criminal proceedings where the state pays to determine whether a defendant is competent to participate in his own defense, clinicians would consider whether Cunha, who repeatedly defied Moukawsher’s orders, had a mental health condition that prevented him to cooperate with the details of his disbarment. The judge said Cunha failed to provide the exact names and contact details of the clients and the detailed recipients for the time she spent on their cases.

Moukawsher struck off Cunha, 54, of Wallingford, earlier this year after filing a motion asking that a family court judge be removed from an ongoing divorce case because he “showed bias in favor of Jewish litigants and persons with disabilities,” according to court documents.

Cunha then repeatedly failed to take steps required by Moukawsher to settle his affairs with several clients, according to court documents. Her resistance to providing information to an appointed administrator led to her being arraigned in shackles this month after a weekend in the custody of the state Department of Corrections, the judge pointed out.

During that court appearance, Pattis argued that her client may have a mental health issue and that she would invoke the Fifth Amendment if asked about her billing practices. At least one client has accused Cunha of taking $70,000 from a settlement without his permission or knowledge, according to court documents.

MENDHAM, NJ — A West Morris Regional High School District staff member may soon be required to submit to an additional individual psychiatric evaluation if the board deems him to have a deviation from normal health, physical or mental.

The West Morris Regional High School Board of Education is urged to pass the resolution with immediate effect, according to Monday’s meeting agenda.

The agenda mentions an incident that happened last May at one of the schools in the West Morris district. The board has been advised that the employee, identified only by his employee number, may have displayed a deviation from normal mental health.

Employee #005260 was subjected to further psychiatric examination after review of the factual evidence, on the recommendation of the school’s chief administrator, Michael Ben David.

The decision was made pursuant to New Jersey law NJSA 18A:16-2, which states that each school board may require its employees and must require any job applicant who has received a conditional job offer to submit to a physical examination. The board may require individual psychiatric or physical examinations of any employee when, in the judgment of the board, an employee shows signs of deviation from normal, physical or mental.

During psychiatric care and evaluation, employee #005260 will remain on paid administrative leave pending the results of the review, the board said.

The board will meet on Monday, June 27 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at West Morris Central High School. To see the full agenda, click here.

Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper left Saturday’s game against the San Diego Padres after being hit in his hands with a 97 mph fastball.

The Phillies later announced that he fractured his left thumb. He will undergo a new evaluation in the coming days.

Harper was hit on a fourth inning at bat against San Diego starter Blake Snell. Snell unleashed his 2-2 fastball up and inside. Harper couldn’t get out of the way. The ball hit Harper in his hands and he immediately fell to the ground in pain.

Replay shows the ball hit Harper squarely on his hands.

Harper was visibly upset when he stood up, apparently realizing he was hurt.

After exchanging words with Snell, he appeared to tell the Padres pitcher that he didn’t believe he wanted to hit him.

He then went to the Phillies clubhouse to receive a medical evaluation.

Harper played much of the season with a UCL tear in his right elbow that prevented him from playing in the outfield. The injury was not likely to cause further damage or prevent him from swinging, so he remained in the Phillies’ roster thanks to the rule change allowing designated hitters in the National League. The broken thumb obviously changes his outlook.

Harper, a six-time All-Star, just completed his second NL MVP campaign. In 63 games this season, he’s cut .320/.385/.602 with 15 home runs, 48 ​​RBIs and nine stolen bases. The Phillies came into play Saturday at 37-35, 9.5 games behind the first-place Mets in Newfoundland East. Their hopes of competing for a playoff spot took a major hit with the loss of their best player.

The Seattle Seahawks signed defensive tackle Bryan Mone to a two-year, $12 million extension earlier this week, to the delight of some and the chagrin of others.

On the one hand, Mone has been a valuable asset in rush defense, and his unique size has contributed to the Seahawks’ second-best rush defense in yards per rush allowed. On the other hand, Seattle also renewed Al Woods on a two-year contract a few months ago, and there are many rumors that he will move to a full 3-4 defense, and with Woods and Poona Ford signed up, he’s just wondering if Mone would even see regular snaps in the new defense.

Therefore, in order to assess whether it was worth extending Mone at a higher rate than Woods is supposed to, we must first have a general idea of ​​what a 3-4 style would look like. Pete Carroll.

What the Seahawks extend Bryan Mone mean

The Seahawks could execute an abundance of Cover 2 and Cover 4 concepts in the near future as new assistant head coach Sean Desai comes from the Vic Fangio tree of 3-4 defenses, which frequently uses two-deep looks . That means Seattle could end up dropping Jamal Adams in deep areas more often than we’ve seen in the past. That said, Adams always reminded me a bit of Troy Polamalu, and Seattle could very easily run a heavyweight blitz program with bigger ends.

Teams like the Steelers and Ravens have set up their defense this way for decades, dating back to names like Kimo von Oelhoffen and Trevor Pryce. Poona Ford could very well make such a move to that 4-i position, aligning himself between guard and attacking most plays, where he could use his extension and leverage to create more than a few lanes of blitz for Adams and Jordyn Brooks.

It’s also possible that either Woods or Mone would make such a move – Desai’s defense in Chicago boasted 330-pound Akiem Hicks on the defensive end, and Mone played multiple positions under Jim Harbaugh at the Michigan, who often moved Mone to play alongside Rashan. Gary as much as possible.

The six-foot-three Mone isn’t as tall as the six-foot-five Hicks, and he carries an extra 10 to 30 pounds on his frame, depending on where you get your info, but could offer some of the same disturbance if given the opportunity.

There’s a lot about Seattle’s defense that hasn’t been cleared up yet, and the Mone extension complicates things even further. The Seahawks also signed Quinton Jefferson for a second stint this offseason and acquired Shelby Harris from the Broncos in the trade from Russell Wilson. There should be plenty of famous Carroll competitions to settle before we have an idea of ​​what this defense will look like.

If Mone doesn’t earn a starting spot on the defensive line before the start of the season, the Seahawks will have paid nearly $7 million in guaranteed money for a rotary nose hoist. It would be a tough pill for any team to swallow, but could be especially devastating for Seattle, pending an extension from DK Metcalf and a long-term solution at QB.

Adding AF to pre-non-cardiac surgery risk assessment: new management https://jackfeenyreviews.com/adding-af-to-pre-non-cardiac-surgery-risk-assessment-new-management/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 22:08:32 +0000 https://jackfeenyreviews.com/adding-af-to-pre-non-cardiac-surgery-risk-assessment-new-management/ The practice has back and forth on whether atrial fibrillation (AF) should be considered in the preoperative cardiovascular (CV) risk assessment of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery, and the index of Revised Cardiac Risk (RCRI), currently widely used as an assessment tool, does not include arrhythmia.

The practice has back and forth on whether atrial fibrillation (AF) should be considered in the preoperative cardiovascular (CV) risk assessment of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery, and the index of Revised Cardiac Risk (RCRI), currently widely used as an assessment tool, does not include arrhythmia.

But accounting for pre-existing AF with RCRI predicted 30-day mortality more strongly than RCRI alone in an analysis of data covering several million patients scheduled for such procedures.

Indeed, AF has emerged as an important and independent risk factor for a number of poor postoperative outcomes. Mortality in the month following the procedure increased by approximately 30% for patients with AF before non-cardiac surgery. Their 30-day risks of stroke and hospitalization for heart failure similarly increased.

Adding AF to CPR significantly improved its ability to discriminate 30-day postoperative risk levels independent of age, gender and type of non-cardiac surgery, said Amgad Mentias, MD, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland , Ohio. lecoeur.org | Medscape Cardiology. And “he was able to correctly classify patients as high risk, if AF was there, and he was able to classify some patients as lower risk if there wasn’t.”

“I think [the findings] are compelling evidence that atrial fib should at least be part of the thought process of the surgical team and the medical team caring for the patient,” said Mentias, who is the lead author of the study published today. today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiologywith lead author Sameer Prasada, MD, also of the Cleveland Clinic.

The findings “call for the incorporation of AF as a risk factor in perioperative risk scores for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality,” the published report states.

Supraventricular arrhythmias were part of the Goldman Risk Index once widely used preoperatively to assess cardiac risk before the practice adopted RCRI in the past decade, observe Anne B. Curtis, MD, and Sai Krishna C. Korada, MD, University at Buffalo, Buffalo, New York, in an accompanying editorial.

The current results “demonstrate improved prediction of adverse post-surgical outcomes” by supplementing RCRI with FA, they write. Given the associations between pre-existing AF and serious cardiac events, “it is time to ‘revisit’ the RCRI and recognize the importance of AF in predicting adverse outcomes” after non-cardiac surgery.

The new discoveries, however, are not all straightforward. In a finding that remains a bit of a puzzle, the postoperative risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with pre-existing AF went in the opposite direction of the risk of death and other CV outcomes, dropping by nearly 20%.

This is “difficult to explain with the available data”, says the report, but “the use of anticoagulation, whether oral or parenteral (as a bridge treatment in the perioperative period), is a plausible explanation” given the frequent role of thrombosis in triggering MI.

Consistent with such a mechanism, according to the group, the reduction in the risk of MI was observed mainly in patients with AF and CHA.2DS2-VASc score of 2 or more – i.e. people most at risk of stroke and therefore most likely to be on oral anticoagulation. Reduction in the risk of myocardial infarction was not observed in these patients with CHA2DS2-VASc score of 0 or 1.

“I think that’s part of the explanation, that anticoagulation can reduce the risk of myocardial infarction. But it’s not the whole explanation,” Mentias said in an interview. If this was the only mechanism, he said, then the same oral anticoagulation that protected against myocardial infarction should also have reduced the risk of postoperative stroke. However, this risk increased by 40% in patients with pre-existing AF.

The analysis began with 8.6 million Medicare patients with planned non-cardiac surgery seen from 2015 to 2019, 16.4% of whom had pre-existing AF. Propensity matching for demographics, urgency, and type of surgery, CHA2DS2-The VASc score and the RCRI index created two cohorts for comparison: 1.13 million patients with and 1.92 million without pre-existing AF.

Pre-existing AF was associated with a higher risk of 30-day death from any cause, the primary endpoint: 8.3% versus 5.8% for people without AF (P < 0.001), for an odds ratio (OR) of 1.31 (95% CI, 1.30, 1.32).

Corresponding 30-day OR for other events, all significant to P < 0.001, were

  • 1.31 (95% CI, 1.30, 1.33) for heart failure

  • 1.40 (95% CI, 1.37, 1.43) for stroke

  • 1.59 (95% CI, 1.43, 1.75) for systemic embolism

  • 1.14 (95% CI, 1.13, 1.16) for major bleeds

  • 0.81 (95% CI, 0.79, 0.82) for MI

Those with pre-existing AF also had longer hospital stays at a median of 5 days compared to 4 days for those without such AF (P < .001).

The study has the limitations of most retrospective cohort analyses. Other limitations, the report notes, include lack of information on antiarrhythmic drugs given during hospitalization or type of AF.

For example, permanent AF—compared to paroxysmal or persistent AF—may be associated with greater atrial fibrosis, greater atrial dilation “and likely higher pressures within the heart,” Mentias observed.

“That’s not always the case, but that’s the notion. So presumably people with persistent or permanent atrial fib would have more advanced heart disease, and that might imply more risk. But we didn’t have not that kind of data.”

Mentias and Prasada report no relevant financial relationship; disclosures for other authors are in the report. Curtis reveals having served on advisory boards for Abbott, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Sanofi and Milestone Pharmaceuticals; receive honoraria to speak about Medtronic and Zoll; and serve on a data oversight board for Medtronic. Korada reports that he has no relevant financial relationship.

Kanpur: Chhatrapati Shahu Ji Maharaj University has taken a new step by implementing the digital assessment process for the 2021-2022 annual and semester exams. CSJM University claimed to be the first university in the state to implement digital assessment.
The implementation of the digital evaluation aims to ensure transparency, to gain credibility with students and to help with a good evaluation of the corrected copies.
CSJMU has also implemented digital assessment in its own campus and affiliated colleges. There are 15 assessment centers in Auraiya, Unnao, Raibareilly, Etawa, Fatehgarh, Farrukabad, Akbarpur, Kannuaj, Sitapur and Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. Institutions that are responsible for carrying out digital assessment work include Tilak Mahavidyalya, KK PG college, DN PG college, PSM College, Akbarpur Degree College, Firoz Gandhi Degree College, Sacred Heart Degree College, college of management studies, CSJMU (UIET-4 assessment building, MCA and BCA labs), SN Sen PG College, Mahila Mahavidyalaya, Kanpur Vidya Mandir, Axis college to name a few. To limit unfair practices, the CSJMU has integrated the locking system, which means that if the teacher does not perform any activity on the assigned laptop for 20 seconds, the answer copy will be automatically locked.
The digital assessment system has been designed so that a teacher cannot check more than 100 copies of answers per day. Teacher Pathak said that CSJMU provided teachers with proper training in digital assessment before the exam to prevent errors from occurring. Computer software automatically counts marks from the given page to avoid human error of counting marks, thereby reducing scrutiny.
He said the university provided the necessary equipment such as laptops and fast internet connection to the evaluators for smooth running. For more transparency and credibility of the digital assessment, teachers need their presence by biometrics and for authenticity, they must bring their original Aadhar card and STOVE map. He also said teachers vetted by the college principal would only do that assessment. So far about 4 Lakh response copies have been assessed.

Does the coroner’s report on deaths during the heat dome impose an obligation on our strata to change our statutes?

Content of the article

Dear Tony:

Our condo company has a bylaw that prohibits the installation of any wall or window air conditioners. Our building was built in the mid 80s and was a leaking condo repair in 2002. As part of the repairs, we were advised at the time to pass a bylaw prohibiting any type of penetrations or openings on the envelope of our building. Because most of our owners have been through the repair cycles they are now extremely paranoid about all types of wall mounted cooling units, but our board is also aware of the dangers of extreme heat, especially with so many the elderly.

Does the coroner’s report on deaths during the heat dome impose an obligation on our strata to change our statutes?

—Adriana D.

Dear Adriana:

The coroner’s report highlighted the severity of extreme heat events and the need for cooling and public safety. It’s time for everyone to assess their air conditioning regulations. Very few multi-family buildings in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island have collective or individual cooling systems.

Our climate was historically moderate and natural cooling was the easiest economic choice for developers and owners. Climatic events, such as the heat dome or a polar vortex, forced us to modify the design of our buildings and our mechanical systems. Everyone assumes that warmth during the winter is essential for survival. We must recognize that cooling during periods of extreme heat is also essential.

Each building system has unique designs, property uses, and property assignments such as common ownership and strata lots. Depending on the type of buildings, such as apartments, high-rises, townhouses, or bare land strata corporations, there can be a variety of air conditioning options.

Bare land and townhouse properties will be the easiest to modify, as heat pumps/cooling can be retrofitted to heating systems or mounted at ground level next to units.

Low-rise apartment-style homes or stacked townhouses may require wall penetration to allow for the installation of a heat pump or cooling system.

Mid-rise and high-rise buildings may allow balcony-mounted heat pumps and will be a hassle, especially if the exterior walls are all glass.

Each building will require an assessment of the type of cooling systems available, how they will be installed, the location of the installation, whether a property allows such modifications, and the impact on common property use or appearance.

I agree, a homeowner should exercise caution when approving any modification that results in any type of holes in the building envelope, but it is possible to have installations detailed to ensure safe performance.

I would recommend your strata consult with a building envelope engineer to examine your property, recommend locations and installation methods. If a homeowner applies for permission to install a heat pump, the process will be clear.

Homeowners should also consider converting their rooftop make-up air systems to heat pumps. Most homeowners only have units that generate heat during the winter, so in the summer when it’s 40C, the system pumps 40C off the roof plus heat into the building when it should be cool. A rooftop heat pump is electric, reduces GHGs and, more importantly, will reduce the ambient temperature of common areas of the building during extreme heat events.

Set up a communal space with cooling as a refuge and schedule wellness checks within your community. Most buildings have some sort of landscaping. Keep your trees healthy and cared for, they significantly reduce exposure and street and building temperatures.

Report cards may sound like the assessment of college students, not the CEOs of multi-billion dollar companies. But over the past decade, some companies have adopted a CEO “self-assessment” to assess CEO performance. This approach can take a myriad of forms, ranging from an informal discussion with the CEO to the CEO preparing a formal report addressing performance issues.

Consider the following: An Intelligize search performed in May 2022 for publicly filed proxy statements that contain “self-assessment” or “self-assessment” in the three words of “CEO” returns 623 results. While imprecise and anecdotal, this survey of proxy disclosures suggests that some public companies are now incorporating CEO self-assessment as part of their review of CEO performance.

Proxy disclosure of the CEO’s self-assessment process varies by issuer. For example, consider the following disclosures from the 2022 proxy statements for International Business Machines Corporation (“IBM”), McKesson Corporation (“McKesson”), and Akamai Technologies, Inc. (“Akamai”):

  • IBM“The chair of the compensation committee works directly with the committee’s compensation consultant to provide a decision-making framework for the committee to use in determining annual incentive payouts. [to the] President and CEO. This framework takes into account the self-assessment of performance by the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer against the commitments for the year, both qualitative and quantitative, and also takes into account progress against strategic objectives, an analysis of IBM’s total performance during the year and the company’s overall incentive score. The committee considers all of this information when developing its recommendations, which are then presented to the independent members of IBM’s Board of Directors for review, discussion and final approval.
  • McKesson: As part of the year-end results review, the “CEO presents an assessment of his individual performance results to the Board and discusses his objectives for the new fiscal year.”
  • Akamai“With regard to his own compensation, the CEO carries out a self-assessment of the performance of the previous year. The Board (without the participation of the CEO) then discusses and assesses the performance of the Chief Executive Officer. The TL&C [Talent, Leadership & Compensation] The Committee is the ultimate decision maker on the compensation of our CEO and other Named Executive Officers.

The actual components of the CEO self-assessment vary from company to company.

  • Some companies may follow a “free-form” approach, which allows the CEO to state what key metrics or objectives he considers relevant and the extent of his achievements. Others provide a set of financial and non-financial goals (such as leadership milestones) that must be achieved.
  • In terms of timing, some focus on the most recent fiscal year; others focus on goals that span a longer time frame (such as a three- or five-year budget period) and may include progress on succession issues if the CEO is nearing retirement.
  • In line with the current focus on ESG objectives, the CEO can be expected to address progress on environmental and social issues.
  • There may be a “catch-all” category, in which the CEO is expected to address “misses” or areas for improvement.

How is the self-assessment used? Frequently for compensation purposes, often as part of the CEO’s assessment of achievement of the non-financial measures underlying the Annual Incentive Plan (“AIP”) and related payouts under the AIP (such as separate strategic and operational objectives of earnings per share (“EPS”) growth, total shareholder return (“TSR”) and other financial metrics). Second, on a more general level, as a ‘reality check’ – the point is that the tone, directness and ‘feel’ of a self-assessment, in many cases a reading ‘between the lines’ , can provide the Council with useful assistance. insight into the CEO’s view of his performance and whether there is a ‘disconnect’ between that view and the company’s current operations and future prospects. The audience for the CEO’s self-assessment is typically the compensation committee (but may include other directors serving on committees that affect the CEO’s performance, a committee of independent directors, or even the whole board). Privilege issues should also be considered when using CEO self-assessments, so legal counsel should be consulted as part of implementing a self-assessment protocol. -Evaluation.

We end with some observations from Mark Nadler, a friend of the firm and the founder of Nadler Advisory Services; Mark (along with his late brother David Nadler) was a pioneer in advising CEOs and boards. Mark cautions against focusing solely on the CEO achieving financial metrics, especially when the company has had a good year. In Mark’s view, financial metrics are “lagging indicators,” so regardless of how well the business performed in any given year, it’s important to focus on the future and see how CEO contributes to next year’s performance and overall performance. future of the company. As part of this “future-oriented” non-financial focus, Mark recommends that the self-assessment consider strategy, talent development, company culture and leadership, all factors that remain important for the long term.
