645,000 bright red poppies to adorn National Mall for Memorial Day Weekend

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Poppy flowers will add a huge flash of color to the National Mall this Memorial Day weekend.A pop-up installation of 645,000 red flowers, encased in a translucent structure, were installed Thursday night and will adorn the southwestern side of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.The “Poppy Memorial” by the United Services Automobile Association and the National Parks Service is on display near the Lincoln, Korean War and World War II memorials to honor men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military since World War I.Each poppy flower symbolizes a life of a fallen service member and their sacrifice.“The Poppy Memorial visualizes the magnitude of that sacrifice and reminds us all of the price that was paid,” said Retired Vice Admiral John Bird, the automobile association’s senior vice president of military affairs. “We are grateful to the National Park Service for allowing us to display this inspiring and educational exhibit among the permanent monuments, as a testament to the enduring bravery of our men and women in uniform.”The abundance of poppies was inspired by the World War I poem, “In Flanders Field.”A portion of the poem reads, “In Flanders fields the poppies blow / Between the crosses, row on row, / That mark our place, and in the sky, / The larks, still bravely singing, fly, / Scarce heard amid the guns below. / We are the dead; short days ago / We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, / Loved and were loved, and now we lie / In Flanders fields.”The temporary monument stretches 133 feet long and is 8.5 feet tall. Its flowers were provided by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion Family.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Health care system can learn from restaurant chain

first_imgThe nation’s health care system needs to learn to serve millions of Americans with consistent quality, reasonable cost, and decent service — much like popular chains like the Cheesecake Factory have learned to do in the restaurant world, Atul Gawande writes August 13, 2012 in The New Yorker. Gawande, professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at Harvard School of Public Health, describes quality control methods used — including timers, computerized recipes, and kitchen managers who rate the food presentation on a scale of one to 10 before it’s served — in a Cheesecake Factory restaurant he visits in the Prudential Center in Boston.“The critical question is how soon that sort of quality and cost control will be available to patients everywhere across the country. We’ve let healthcare systems provide us with the equivalent of greasy-spoon fare at four-star prices, and the results have been ruinous,” he writes. “The Cheesecake Factory model represents our best prospect for change. Some will see danger in this. Many will see hope. And that’s probably the way it should be.”With health care reform in mind, Gawande reflects upon the process used when his mother underwent knee replacement surgery in a major Boston teaching hospital. He also discusses efforts by for-profit health systems like the Steward hospital chain to streamline medicine. He stops in to watch Steward medical staff use video technology to remotely track the status of hospitalized patients. “The way medical care is organized is changing — because the way we pay for it is changing,” he writes.

Ass Armor: Protect Your Assets

first_imgSnow is a sly beast. Take one glance at those rolling white hills along the Blue Ridge this season: they could be piles of pillows or huge marshmallow clouds. Soft, comfortable, forgiving. Gentle giants.Nope.That snow is torture. It may look like sweet fairy dust in the air, but it mostly settles on the mountains like just another layer of stone. Sometimes you’ll come across a big powdery patch of delight to sink your chilly limbs into, and for a brief second you might find some comfort. Much icier slopes, though, seem to be more common here in the East.Still, these slopes attract skiers and snowboarders from all over the region for a dose of wintry adrenaline. Experts cruise down Black Diamond peaks without one bump to document the journey, but behind every snow pro stands a stumbling and bumbling beginner who can’t slide five feet down the mountain without a good bit of falling.Introducing Ass Armor, my new saving grace as I struggle through the early stages of snowboarding. After a single afternoon without any padding or protection, my butt was ready to call the whole thing quits. The bruises just weren’t worth the eventual gain.Turns out that Ass Armor Founder Casey Scherr agrees with me. In the midst of her own Ass Armorlearning process, Scherr needed a little extra support to make it all the way through the run with enough stamina left for even one more go. Ass Armor uses D30 XT, the same polymer technology found in many sports and law enforcement protective pieces, to cradle your backside in a layer of shock-absorbing deliverence. It’s like foam, but better: D30 is 40% thinner than comparable foam products, much more flexible and absorbent, and actually comfortable – very unlike strapping a unwieldy foam block to your rump.The D30 XT padding is attached onto a pair of spandex shorts, ranging in size from XS to XL to fit any user. The spandex material is also breathable and moisture-wicking for optimal dryness through sweat or snow. Wear under layers, in between, or right on top to show off your gear.Thanks to Ass Armor, pioneering the slopes just got a whole lot easier. Falling may be inevitable, but there’s no need to turn black and blue. Breathe easy and tumble in style – your assets are safe.last_img read more
