NHS and care workers will not have to pay to use Chichester’s Northgate car park until April 2021.

The news emerged during a virtual meeting of the district council’s cabinet where a number of incentives were detailed to attract people into the West Sussex city as the lockdown eases.

The initial suggestion was only for NHS workers to be allowed to park free of charge but members agreed with advice from the overview and scrutiny committee that care workers should be included too.

Money from car parks makes up a significant portion of the council’s income and the finances were hit hard when charges were suspended in March.

The incentives will come into play when charging returns on 8 June.

There will be free parking at the Avenue De Chartres car park every Saturday and Sunday for three months, and customers who use the MiPermit app will get one hour

The coronavirus patient, a 75-year-old man, was dying. No family member was allowed in the room with him, only a young nurse.In full protective gear, she dimmed the lights and put on quiet music. She freshened his pillows, dabbed his lips with moistened swabs, held his hand, spoke softly to him. He wasn’t even her patient, but everyone else was slammed.Finally, she held an iPad close to him so he could see the face and hear the voice of a grief-stricken relative Skyping from the hospital corridor.After the man died, the nurse found a secluded hallway and wept.A few days later, she shared her anguish in a private Facebook message to Dr. Heather Farley, who directs a comprehensive staff-support program at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware. “I’m not the kind of nurse that can act like I’m fine and that something sad didn’t just happen,” she

TIMES-TRIBUNE ARCHIVES Dr. Elsie Cole, retiring president of the Scranton District Dental Society, turns over the gavel to Dr. Frank B. Gardner, 1954 president, at the election and installation dinner on Dec. 14, 1953, at the Hotel Jermyn. From left: Gardner, Cole, Dr. Joseph Newman, Dr. John C. Specker and Dr. C.W. Taylor.


From the time she was 5 years old, helping her father count supplies and prepare gold for fillings, Elsie Cole was destined to become the first female dentist in Lackawanna County.


Born in Scranton in 1892, she was determined to follow in the footsteps of her father, P.F. Struppler, who had a dental practice in West Side. She attended the School of Lackawanna and then Temple School of Dentistry, where she met Jesse Cole, another dental student who would become her husband. They married in 1914, a year after they graduated.

Canada’s worst mass murderer was a millionaire dentist obsessed with police – World News

The worst mass murderer in Canada’s history was a millionaire dentist with an obsession with the country’s iconic police force, it has been repoted.

Gabriel Wortman was shot dead following a 12-hour shooting and arson spree across Nova Scotia.

The 51-year-old was obsessed with Canada’s mounted police, known as mounties, and bought decommissioned police cars from auctions.

He also had a shrine to them in his Portapique home.

Wortman collected mountie gear which he used to dress up as an officer before carrying out the brutal attack, Mail Online reported.

personal-training-workoutAfter having spent the Summer back in the States, I returned back to London last month and straight back to work. Unfortunately my time away over the Summer has been spent largely socialising and catching up with friends and family. My fitness has frankly gone out the window, except for a few early morning jogs. So to kick start me back into a healthy regime I decided to try a course of personal training sessions once again, as this worked so well for me before. I was looking for intense results and the motivation to get me back on track.

My trainer Daniel turned up at my home and within a few minutes had analysed my lifestyle, eating habits and exercise shortcomings. With a knowing nod of his head, he assured me, “We’ll get you back into top shape, but you’ll have to make some changes”. Okay so I was

LINDSEY SHUEY / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER Anna Sauber, a dental hygienist, examines patient Kay Neidlinger, of Minersville, early last month at Mill Creek Dental in Pottsville.


Remote dentistry is about as tricky as it sounds.


In a field that’s so dependent on touch, dentists say guidance from state health officials encouraging care over the phone to prevent COVID-19 from spreading has made their jobs far more complicated.


“Teledentistry is difficult,” said Dr. Mary Grace Rizzo-Fryzel of Electric City Dentistry. “For us to have a conversation over the phone, the only thing we’re able to do is prescribe an antibiotic or pain medicine.”


For about a week, Harrisburg reduced patient/dentist interaction entirely to the phone by, among other rules, requiring negative pressure isolation rooms — a room engineered to control infection — which virtually no dentist’s office has.


On Friday, following outcry from the Pennsylvania
