Kunoni’s talk, “The Breaking Spears: A Culture at Crossroads with Modernity,” will take place at 6 p.m. in Rice Auditorium in Fisher Hall. The talk is free and open to the public.

An author of a book by the same name, Kunoni will speak about his life in Kenya and how his tradition and family background shaped his resolve to acquire modern education.

He will talk about the various stages of formal education in tandem with Maasai rites of passage and describe how colonialism influenced education in his country. He will also talk about Kenya’s gradual transformation to modernity.

Kunoni has more than 30 years of development experience in Kenya, where he worked with the Ministry of Health, the International Doping Testing and Management Organization, and as a consulting scholar with the University of Pennsylvania.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in medical parasitology and entomology from the Kenya Medical Training College in Nairobi, Kenya, and is currently studying for a Master of Arts degree in the School of Policy and International Affairs at the University of Maine.

While visiting Pitt-Bradford, Kunoni will also give a presentation, called “Environmental Development and Conservation – A Perspective from Kenya,” during the annual environmental studies retreat.

Physio-Control Launches Voluntary Field Action for Specific Production Lots of Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes Produced by Cardinal Health
Physio-Control announced today that the company is launching a voluntary field action for specific production lots of Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes (defibrillation electrodes) produced by Cardinal Health.
The company is notifying customers of an issue with the artwork on the defibrillation electrodes, as manufactured by Cardinal Health, which shows incorrect electrode placement for an infant. There is no issue with the performance or function of the defibrillation electrodes; this is limited to incorrect artwork on the defibrillation electrodes within the packaging. If the user incorrectly places the defibrillation electrodes, it may result in ineffective energy delivery to the patient and serious injury or death.
The defibrillation electrodes are used only with LIFEPAK EXPRESS® AED, LIFEPAK CR® Plus AED, LIFEPAK® 1000 defibrillator, or LIFEPAK 500 Biphasic AED with a pink connector. Adult defibrillation electrodes are not impacted. Approximately 14,200 electrodes have been affected. There have been no customer complaints reported for this issue.
Fresenius Kabi Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Midazolam Injection, USP, 2 mg/2 mL Due to Reports of Blister Packages Containing Syringes of Ondansetron Injection, USP, 4 mg/2 mL
Fresenius Kabi USA is voluntarily recalling Lot 6400048 of Midazolam Injection, USP, 2 mg/2 mL packaged in a 2 mL prefilled single-use glass syringe to the hospital/user level. The product mislabeled as Midazolam Injection,
USP, 2 mg/2 mL contains syringes containing and labeled as Ondansetron Injection, USP, 4 mg/2 mL.
A missed dose of midazolam may lead to ineffective sedation and/or anxiety related to patient recall of a surgical or diagnostic procedure. If a selection error occurs, a patient who may have received a pre-operative dose of ondansetron may inadvertently receive an additional dose of ondansetron. Dose-dependent serious cardiac arrhythmias may be observed with higher dosages of ondansetron in those patients with certain pre-existing cardiac conditions. Patients may also be at risk for serotonin syndrome. Serotonin syndrome is associated with increased serotonergic activity in the central nervous system. Most reports of serotonin syndrome have been associated with concomitant use of certain drugs, some commonly used during surgery, such as fentanyl. Some of the reported cases of serotonin syndrome were fatal.

Bloom: Protecting Excellent Teachers Act to Become Law

Historic reform is win for PA students

HARRISBURG – Bill author Rep. Stephen Bloom (R-Cumberland) today issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement that he will allow the Protecting Excellent Teachers Act, which would base teacher layoff decisions in Pennsylvania on teacher performance rather than seniority, to become law. The measure was one of many key education reforms contained in the Public School Code portion of the 2017-18 state budget.

“This is a historic victory for Pennsylvania students. Our kids can now keep their best teachers, and valuable programs, like art and music, can be saved. For the sake of our students across the Commonwealth, I’m relieved the governor has decided to allow the Protecting Excellent Teachers Act to become law. This long overdue reform will ensure that our best teachers will remain in our classrooms, regardless of seniority, enhancing the quality of education for all Pennsylvania children.”
