“The water is dirty. You can see it with your own eyes. It looks muddy. When you pour it in a glass and leave it overnight, the following day you start seeing small things swimming in the water” – Kamogelo Stock, South African citizen In this episode, we hear from people who've gone through the agony of losing their loved ones to cholera in South Africa. The disease is currently wreaking havoc in several parts of the African continent including Malawi, Cameroon and Mozambique. Zimbabwe's capital, Harare, is currently under a state of emergency following a deadly outbreak. Cholera is an infectious and often fatal bacterial disease which causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. It can spread in places with insufficient water treatment, poor sanitation and inadequate hygiene. In today's episode Alan Kasujja attempts to find out why so many African countries are still struggling to contain the disease.

12 countries in Africa will receive 18 million doses of the RTS,S malaria vaccine in the coming days. The roll out will begin in the new year. The doses are injections for children between 5 months and 2 years old. Kenya, Ghana and Malawi have already been using the vaccine in a pilot programme since 2019, but in other countries - including Uganda, Mozambique and Cameroon - this will be new. So today, Africa Daily asks how parents view the vaccine – and about how the rollout is likely to go.

“Just having that dream visit, even just one visit, can nourish somebody and really give them the courage to go into their grief because it's not enough to have those dreams. It doesn't negate the pain of their physical absence. You still need to do the hard work. You still need to go into your grief and really unwind all of those stories and all of the different things that are present, but being able to connect with them in that way nourishes you. You don't feel so hopeless anymore.” - Ning Tendo In this week's episode, we speak with guest Ning Tendo, a published poet, spiritual healer, dream yogi, and grief guide. Ning shares her profound insights into the transformative power of grief and how it can reveal unexplored aspects of ourselves. She discusses her unique approach to navigating grief through exploring dreams, offering practical advice on how to connect with the essence of lost loved ones. Ning also shares her rich cultural background and traditions around grief from Cameroon and contrasts them with her experiences in America.

With the increasing number of nurse practitioners, we find a comparable increase in malpractice suits in which they're involved. Rebecca Paschall, who is both a nurse practitioner and a legal nurse consultant, shares crucial information for LNCs evaluating the work of nurse practitioner charting and liability. While her comments focus mainly on office settings, Rebecca describes how often valuable information may come from those who observed medical errors being played out in hospital settings. A statement by a spouse, roommate, or also a staff member may provide essential documentation in a case. In evaluating an NP's documentation for office visits, it's essential to read the notes thoroughly. Using the example of severe heartburn, Rebecca describes the optimal steps to take to exclude other possible diagnoses. What kinds of tests are done? Is the patient advised to go to the ER under certain conditions? Is a follow up visit scheduled? The LNC also wants to see whether the NP is relying solely on standard templates. How much detail does the practitioner put into the notes? Do various elements of the notes agree with each other? This podcast is filled with critical information not only about what an LNC needs to look for in medical documentation but also how careful, thorough, and accurate charting can protect an NP from legal action. Learn more about Nurse Practitioner Charting and Liability Analysis - Rebecca Paschall How can an LNC best handle omissions and also conflicting reports? Why is it so important to read all of the documentation about a case? What is a SOAP note? What are some common areas for litigation in the case of a nurse practitioner? Why should nurse practitioners be cautious in the use of templates? Listen to our podcasts or watch them using our app, Expert.edu, available at legalnursebusiness.com/expertedu.

The Moon slides past the planet Saturn the next couple of nights. Saturn is to the upper left of the Moon as darkness falls tonight. It'll be closer to the right of the Moon tomorrow night. The planet looks like a bright star. Saturn is named for a Roman god. In ancient Greece, he was known as Cronus. He was the leader of the Titans, who came before the gods of Olympus. Saturn is passing through Aquarius. The constellation is home to many stars that host their own planets. And like Saturn, many of those worlds have more than one name. All of the planets bear the names of their stars followed by a letter of the alphabet, starting with “b.” The letters indicate the order of a planet's discovery around its star. Over the past few years, the International Astronomical Union has been assigning formal names to exoplanets. The latest batch was announced this year. It includes two planets in Aquarius. The names were submitted as part of a competition. They come from many cultures and eras. The planet HATS-72b was named Zembretta, after a tiny island off the coast of Tunisia. And WASP-69b was named Makombe, after a stream that feeds a major river in Cameroon. Both planets are giants — the size of Saturn or bigger. And they're quite close to their parent stars, so they're quite hot. There's no guarantee that astronomers will actually use the new names. But they offer a new way to think about some far-off worlds. Script by Damond Benningfield Support McDonald Observatory

In the last few months, catastrophic floods have ravaged parts of Libya, Myanmar, Cameroon, India, and Somalia, not to mention several such disasters in the United States. Climate change and floods have an interesting relationship — scientists contend climate change may be leading to fewer floods overall, but the floods that do happen become much more intense, particularly in urban areas. As overwhelming as this reality can be, it's equally important to remember that even in a changing climate, floods have solutions. Ethan explores how climate change will impact future floods and how communities can assess flood risk, prevent floods, adapt to floods, and rethink floods in this week's “Tip of the Iceberg.” Now more than ever, The Sweaty Penguin needs your help to continue!

Cameroonian musician and composer Manu Dibango passed away on March 24, 2020 at his home in France, an early victim of Covid 19. This episode is a tribute to the exceptional man who, by chance, as he says, gave us the famous Soul Makossa, a tune that opened the Disco era. In this episode of Afropop Worldwide, Georges Collinet goes back in time to recollect his friendship with his fellow Cameroonian. He explores the many ways their lives paralleled and intersected after they were sent to France by their parents for an education. This musical journey is enhanced by the wisdom and sonorous laughter of Manu Dibango and by the mesmerizing music culled from over 200 records that Manu produced over a 60 year career. We'll sample some Maxi Voom Voom - as Georges Collinet on the Voice Of America was known - and have a taste of Andouillette and Suya in Yaoundé, Cameroon. And we'll finally know how to correctly say "Ma Ma Ko, Ma Massa, Ma Ma Makossa." This episode is definitely a multi-sensory delight! APWW #814
Welcome to RIMScast. Your host is Justin Smulison, Business Content Manager at RIMS, the Risk and Insurance Management Society. In this episode, Justin interviews several notable attendees of the RIMS ERM Conference 2023 in Denver, Colorado. First is Fernanda Gutierrez Franco, a student at the University of Colorado. Fernanda speaks of the risk management program at the university. Next are two high-ranking AFERM members, Marianne Roth, and Bobbi-Jo Pankaj, who describe the similarities between AFERM and RIMS. They also speak of the Summit, AFERM's Conference. Finally, Justin catches up with Dr. Innocent Uzombah, MBA, the Registrar General/CEO of the Chartered Institute of Loan & Risk Management of Nigeria. Dr. Uzombah hopes to bring the risk management body of knowledge in Nigeria to current standards. Justin wraps the episode with some of the benefits of attending the RIMS ERM Conference. Key Takeaways: [:01] About RIMScast. [:28] The segments of today's episode were recorded live at the RIMS ERM Conference 2023 in Denver, Colorado. Live event episodes are Justin's favorites. They capture the energy of RIMS events! [:43] Justin sends a quick shout-out to the RIMS New Zealand Pacific Island Chapter and Marsh Australia and New Zealand, who welcome you to Embrace The Unknown: Unleashing the Power of Risk, a one-day event on February 12, 2024 at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland, NZ. [1:07] It will be a gathering of experts, thought leaders, and professionals from various industries to explore and discuss the critical role of risk management in today's dynamic and uncertain world. There will be sessions on AI, Resilience, and Adaptability, highlighted by case studies and insights. See the link in this episode's show notes. [1:28] Next week on RIMScast, one of the speakers will be joining us! Be sure to tune in. [1:34] It's never too early to talk about RISKWORLD 2024! Save the date, May 5th–8th, 2024 in sunny San Diego, California. Booth and sponsorship sales are open. Member registration opens this month, November 2023 and public registration opens in December 2023. Visit RIMS.org/RISKWORLD to learn all about it. [2:09] We have a range of perspectives on today's episode of RIMScast. Our first perspective comes from a soon-to-be rising star in the risk profession, Fernanda Gutierrez Franco, a student at the University of Colorado. She is very involved in the risk management program and risk management groups at the school. [2:32] Fernanda was one of the contestants for ERM Squares. Justin caught up with Fernanda in the ballroom to hear from her how students are seeing the risk profession and what her career goals are. [2:48] Fernanda Gutierrez Franco, welcome to RIMScast! Fernanda started college with a biology major for pre-med or nursing. It wasn't a fit, so she switched to business, hoping to go into management or accounting in the health sector. In one of her classes, guest speakers talked about the RMI program. She booked a meeting and switched her major. [4:06] Fernanda loves risk management for the opportunities for students and how welcoming everyone is in the industry. Fernanda describes opportunities at CU Denver and RMI events such as spotlights on companies and shadow days to visit companies and shadow the employees. Fernanda describes Gamma Iota Sigma internship events. [4:59] Many speakers come to talk to classes in panelist events or to talk about risk control and company practices. [5:19] Fernanda loves ERM for everyone coming together to realize that there has to be something done; there has to be a risk assessment or something laid out. It's educating people that aren't in the risk industry that risk is always here and it's better to be prepared than to be sorry later. [5:44] Fernanda will take a course under David Young in her grad program. [6:05] Fernanda is the Women in Business VP, the Gamma Iota Sigma VP. She is more involved with the Gamma Iota Sigma group that meets Tuesday morning, weekly and hosts two to three events monthly. They have nine elected officials and are working on getting more members involved in the organization. [6:49] Fernanda was a moderator at the RIMS Western Regional. It was her first time moderating at a risk event and her first time in front of a huge crowd. It scared her a bit to be standing in front of 400 people, but it was a great opportunity, she got a lot of exposure and the session was fun and informative. [7:49] Fernanda has had other speaking opportunities, including high school commencement, for around 150 people. [8:12] Fernanda was one of the first two contestants for the RIMS ERM Squares. She had to agree or disagree with answers from nine seasoned risk professionals on stage. [9:18] Justin congratulates Fernanda and thanks her for being on RIMScast. [9:23] RIMS plug time!

[12:18] Justin interviews high-ranking AFERM members, Marianne Roth, and Bobbi-Jo Pankaj, at the RIMS ERM Conference 2023. Marianne says AFERM is the only organization dedicated to government employees who are leaders in ERM. AFERM has about 500 members from state, local, and federal government and the private sector. [13:07] The members of AFERM facilitate ERM at all levels of government and in the nonprofit sector. Bobbi-Jo says she has a deep love for ERM. AFERM is the Association of Federal Risk Management. AFERM has a lot of activities for state, federal, and local governments and vendors. Bobbi-Jo is a vendor. She works for Guidehouse. [13:32] Bobbi-Jo is the Summit Chair for 2023. The Summit is very similar to the RIMS ERM Conference. The Summit focuses on weaving ERM into the fabric of government. There are usually 300 or 400 attendees in person and virtually. The Summit is November 28th and 29th. [13:53] AFERM is heavily tied to the federal government, so if the government shuts down, the event will be moved to a later date. It will still be in Washington, D.C. at the Washington D.C. Convention Center. RIMS is slated to have a presence at the Summit. [14:22] At the Summit, there's an exciting vibe; everybody loves ERM. There are speakers from the public and private sectors. There are 21 unique break-out sessions. There are five plenary speakers, including the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service. There's a lot of networking. Which is one of the best takeaways from the event. [14:46] There are tools and techniques that members have found successful in the government and the private sector. RIMS will have a booth at AFERM. Bobbi-Jo is excited to get potential new AFERM members from RIMS. A lot of AFERM members have the RIMS CRMP certification and the RIMS CRMP-FED microcertification. [15:20] Marianne and Justin met online a few years ago after Marianne won the Theodore Roosevelt Excellence in Government Award for Innovation in ERM at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Justin saw it on LinkedIn and reached out to Marianne. They did a Q&A. It is linked in this episode's show notes. [15:54] Marianne has been an ERM risk practitioner for almost 10 years. Bobbi-Jo was in risk management first and has also been an ERM risk practitioner for about 10 years, since ERM took off in the federal government. [16:07] Marianne has seen a lot of maturation of ERM capabilities across federal agencies with organizations focusing on risk appetite and maturing their processes, mitigating risks more effectively. Bobbi-Jo agrees and notes that a lot of AFERM members use the RIMS Risk Maturity Model® to track the maturation of programs. [16:44] AFERM is an all-volunteer organization. They seek volunteers year-round. Marianne enjoyed the Summit so much, she got involved with AFERM. Bobbi-Jo has been doing the Summit for seven years and took on the Chair position because it is an amazing event. Justin looks forward to seeing them at future RIMS events. [17:22] Justin's final guest for this episode is Dr. Innocent Uzombah, MBA, the Registrar General/CEO of the Chartered Institute of Loan & Risk Management of Nigeria. He came from Nigeria to attend the RIMS ERM Conference in Denver and has also been to several more RIMS events. Justin invited him to RIMScast to share his unique perspective. [18:09] Dr. Innocent Uzombah, welcome to RIMScast! Dr. Uzombah is happy to be here. Dr. Innocent Uzombah has been a risk management practitioner for 13 years. Dr. Uzombah explains what drew him to risk management. He came to the RIMS ERM Conference to improve the body of knowledge in risk management practice in Nigeria. [19:56] The Chartered Institute of Loan & Risk Management of Nigeria shares ideas and information with offices in Ghana, Cameroon, Kenya, and some other African countries. [20:22] Dr. Innocent Uzombah says the session on Resilience was very good. He enjoyed other sessions, too. He will bring this information to Nigeria to teach others. He says risk management is a void in Africa. His advice to people in Nigeria interested in risk management is to get the right knowledge and education to fill the void. [21:57] Dr. Innocent Uzombah has attended the RIMS ERM conference starting with the 2019 conference in Louisiana. He will continue to attend so the body of risk knowledge will improve in Africa. Justin is glad Dr. Innocent Uzombah is getting so much from the RIMS conferences and looks forward to seeing him again. Dr. Uzombah thanks Justin.

Sometimes, the universe introduces you to characters that truly shape your perspective on a subject. As a devoted food enthusiast, I'm always on the lookout for culinary wonders. One such marvel was my recent deep dive into the journey of Executive Chef Anthony Jones of Dirty Habit DC on the "Chef AF" podcast. So, let me share a tale that's sure to excite your inner foodie!Hailing from Sunderland, MD, Chef Jones is an epitome of talent and dedication. Early in life, he found himself enamored by the cooking prowess displayed on the original Iron Chef. If you're like me, you might recall spending hours glued to episodes of this iconic show. For Chef Jones, it wasn't just a show, but an inspiration. In a touching revelation, he said during the podcast, "The spark was the original episode of Iron Chef. That was the one that pretty much lit the fire in me."Fast forward a few years, and not only did he master the culinary arts, but he also took center stage, clinching the first place on an episode of Food Network's "Chopped". This title firmly placed him among the culinary elite. But Jones' journey doesn't stop there. He has been the driving force in kitchens from Miami to DC, working alongside legends like Marcus Samuelsson and earning accolades including a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2022.Our chat transported me back to a time where his grandmother's kitchen played a symphony of tantalizing aromas. As Chef Jones fondly reminisced, "When you come back in the house for dinner, as soon as you open the door, all those aromas just hit you in the face. The garlic, the herbs…” For me, such memories make culinary adventures genuine and relatable. After all, isn't the essence of food intertwined with the memories they evoke?Now, let's talk about the magic happening at Dirty Habit DC. The ambiance is split between mysterious allure and atmospheric charm, a mirror to Chef Jones' own journey from humble roots to culinary acclaim. And as seasonally inspired dishes make their way to the table, one can't help but sense the influence of Jones' heritage. As he mentioned, traditional dishes like beans and cornbread, staples from his childhood, now find an elevated spot on the menu, paired with luxurious elements.If you ever find yourself at Dirty Habit, know that you're tasting dishes crafted by a chef whose journey is steeped in passion and grit. Whether it's his accolades like being a guest chef at the Worlds of Flavor Event or his participation in the Diaspora Kitchen Tour in Cameroon, Chef Jones brings a world of experience to his kitchen.To sum it up, in the world of culinary arts, it's not just about the dish but the story behind it. And with Chef Jones at the helm, Dirty Habit isn't just a restaurant; it's an odyssey of flavors, tradition, and innovation.
